THERE IS NOTHING that strikes terror to the
hearU of parent more than to be awakened in
the night by the ringing cough which accompanies
an attack of croup. The child may retire with
nothing but a slight cold and a few hours later the family
be aroused by the ominous symptoms. Every home where
there are small children should be prepared for these sud
den attacks, as prompt treatment is necessary. Do not
experiment with remedies of doubtful value, but get

coughs, colds and croup. When

About 1$ people of the city, mostly labor
ing men, attended the meeting a', the city
hall yesterdsy afternoon. This meeting wss
called In the Interests of clurter revision.
The prime mover was Jeremiah Hcwsrd,
who ss a representative In the legislature
desired to be advised as to the wishes of
the South Omaha people.
The meeting was presided over by George
Sterrett. The prlnclpsl speaker as Frank
A. Kennedy of Omaha. He confined his
remarks to the needs of labor In state

Melcher, Jscoli Levy. John MacMilUn,
Thomss Hector. Dr. W. J MoCiann. J. B
Watklns. C. A. Sears, Jack Walter, Georgs
Stephens and John Flynn.
Among the things discussed was home
rule, or the election of the fire and police
commissioners. It was a. so proposed that
there be only two members of the board
outside of the mayor, he being the chair
man, the other members to belong one
each to the two leading parties.
Turning from legislation to the proposed
power scheme, the speakers denounced the
Nebraska Power company a a visionary
scheme and unsafe for the city to consider.
Borne discussion was also Indulged lu
regarding the Park board. It was argued
that the members of this board alio should
be elective or at least be appointed by tho
It was proposed to ask that the charter
be revised to compel the street car ccm

tracks and all the space between.
After these and other points were uia
cussed the session adjourned for one week,
At which time an invitation Is to be ex
tended to the city council and the city
officials, and to ask them at that meeting
to consider the appointment of a charter
revision committee which shall have power
to formulate a proper petition which Is
to bo presented to the legislature.
Council to Meet Tonight.
The city council In Its regular meeting
tonight may be called upon to consider
some Important matters concerning tho
public improvements. It la expected that
the city attorney will report on the validity
of the sewer contracts which were let
nearly two years sgo, but which have never
been carried out because the city had not
funds enough to meet the obligations In
volved In the contracts. It Is possible that
the various companies may be called In to
sign new contracts and In the event of
such proceeduro being required, It nisy be
found that several of the companies will
refuse to renew their former bids. In this
case the contracts will have to be read
vertlsed. It Is understood that these propo
sitions apply only to the contracts on
which no work has been begun. Where the
work Is In progress It Is evident that the
companies are bound by the terms of the
contract under which they have been op
erating until the work Is dons.
The city engineer may possibly have an
Important report in this connection.

Nine curtain calls at the close of the sec
ond act tells the story of William Collier
and his new play at the Boyd last night.
Nor was It the applause of a clique, but
the spontaneous response of a typical
Omaha audience to the art of the man and
his company and to the freshness and
breeslness of the lines.
Ths play is based on sn idea not new to
plsywrlters, the contrast between the un
conventional manners and speech of west
em America and the alleged culture and
refinement of the English aristocracy.
Sir Augustus Plantagenet Armltage Is (he
mellifluous name assumed by Mr. Collier.
The story, shred of Its trimming, is some
thing like this. He Is a scion of the Eng
lish nobility, born and raised In Bull Frog,
Nev., this place being assumed as the high
est conceivable antithesis of a London
drawing room. He has no apparent chances
ever coming Into the title and Is engaged
In gold mining, which occupation is re
munerative on condition that you find the
gold. This he could not quite do. But
presto! Just ss his fortunes are darkest
there arrives a message: "Come to London,
you are a duke." or words to that effect.
He goes, taking with him some of his
friends of the mining rsmp. When this
Bull Fror aggregation meets the other
dukes and personages there are a number
of Inimitable scenes.
This forms the basis of the second net
ana it was at Its close that Mr. Collier
iecelved an ovation such as the walls of
the Boyd rsrely echo.
He comes back to Nevada, V. 8. A., de
claring that fifty minutes of dear old Bull
Frtg Is better than a cycle of London.
Incidentally, he finds that the girl he has
loved all ulong, only he t ldn't realise it.
is there and waiting for Mm. They havs
a big dinner, he proposes, she accepts and
they live happily ever after.
The feature of the first act Is the scene
following Mr. Collier's entrance. This oc
cupies probably fiva minutes and during
this time he speaks not one word and Is
well on the stage after his second entrance
before he reads a line. But when he does
speak one of the secrets of his success
becomes apparent. His voice Is deep and
rich and clear. There Is no effort, imt
tl-cse nt the door hear as distinctly as
people In the boxes. '
The entire play Is full of clever bits of
dialogue, not hothouse humor, forced Inta
a brief and artificial breath of life, but
pointed wit which bubbles along, every
bubble being death to trouble.
But to mention only the stsr would b
leaving thing unsaid which ought to be
said. The support entire Is good. It Is well
balanced. It Is well selected.
Miss Helen Hale as Nell and Annie
Esmond as Mrs. Berkshire are excellent In
widely varying parts. Misa Hale Is very
girlish where she should be and very much
grown up when It Is neoeasary and Is very
much of a woman all tho-way through her
part. Thomas Beauregard ,as Wambllktl
tli Indian, and Helena iGoHicr-Oarrlck as
Bijou Strong caused much mirth.
The drawing room scene and -the dinner
at Bull Frog testify to Mr. Collier's ability
as a stage manager.
Incidentally, and lustly, ft may be men
tioned that In keeping with tho announced
character of the play, which is cnlled an
International comedy, the orchestra gave
a melody of patriotic airs and national
must enjoy. It hss so much what they call
"fat." so many striking lines, so many bits
of laughter-making hoaines. F.very rich
opportunity thus afforded Mr. Macon he
seised with avidity but never overse:vlously,
and with the result that lie brought onto
the stage of the Bui m ood such a man as
the suthoi must have conjured up in bis
own mind's eye when he wrote the part.
Given a role with almost no striking lines,
a character In fact which while almost con
stantly on stage ha but few lines at all, a
part quite the antithesis in this respect o!
the title role, and It must be observed that
Mies Elliott as Lucy White, the secretary
of the absent-minded professor, has a part
affording a crucial test nt her ability to
The result of this Int is that Mls Elliot
sends across the footlights the convincing
Impression of a well defined, finely shaded,
thoroughly rounded and developed charac
terisation. While her success Is Im
portant to thf succens of the comedy, yet
it is chiefly Interesting as furnishing a
beautiful Illustration of the fact that acting
Is vastly different In nature from elocution,
that a good actor can create a character
of extreme significance and meaning even
If situated In as In the present case with- I
out eloquent lines and Impressive "busi
ness." A third big success In the play is that
of Lloyd Ingmham as the prolesaor's phy
slcan snd friend and is of Interest as af
fording another Instance of his versatility.
Two feminine' roles, the dowager Lady
Gilding and Trof. Goodwlllles sister,
are played by Pearl Stearns and Edith
Spencer, respectively. The first has an
easier task, for the role Is a humorous one,
from which Miss Stearns extracted a full
measure of comedy; tho second Is an un
sympathetic part, though the sister's
change of attitude at tho close toward the
marriage of her brother and his secretary,
redeems her in the eyes of spectators at
the close. Miss Spencor succeeded, In spite
of this handicap In gaining the Interest
and attention of her audience.
William Grew and Alice Myers appear
as Sir George and Lady Gliding and con
tribute much to the humor of tho evening.
Hostile criticism of elther's acting would

and besides playing excellently, handled a
difficult dialect without flaw, as did Jane
Jeffcry, as the housekeeper, an important
minor role. J. Lane Connor has tho only
other speaking part, that of a young phys
ician, and he maintained the high standard
set by his fellows. Lloyd Francis and Ed
ward Kauffer are allotted the thankless
roles of liveried servsnts and carried two
lunch baskets with skill, which was all
they had a chance to do.

When an absent-minded, whimsical,

love with an attarcttve young woman and
does not know It. although she does; when
her position In ths matter Is wrongly com
prehended by his relatives and friends;
when a husband-hunting widow complicates
ths situation, there Is a wealth of cuniudy
But either to tell the plot of "The Pro
fessor's Love Story" or to extol James M.
Barrle, who wrote It, Is to engage in a
superfluity. Tho essential point remaining
Is that the play was given at the Burwood
yesterday with a success at least equaling
any offering of the current season.
It has been most happily cast. Frank
Bacon Is temperamentally, technically and
physlcully fitted for the tltlo role, Miss
Elliott's power of restraint Is one of the
qualities which makes her successful as tho
self-contained, self-respecting heroine, and
the same felicity of assignment of part to
actor exists throughout the rest of the cast.
The week will see a success In which
Bacon and Miss Elliott share the first
honors. The former creates a perfect Illu
sion, and this Is a feat particularly worthy
of note In the case of a player In a stock
company, for those who havo seen hlro In
other roles sre Inevltebly attempting to
focus out the real man beneath the makeup
J and beneath the characterizing, and by this
Yaadevllle at tbe Orphenm.
The tramp Is a familiar flguro In litera
ture. He has been a life-saver for the
comic artists and has proven for humorists
a mine in which the paystrcuk does not
run out. Even more frequently, he has
been exploited on the stago than by tho
Jokesmtth and tho Illustrator. Seven of
him are much In evidence at the Orpheum
this week, appearing In a satire on vaga
bonds presented by Jense L. Lasky, who
was tho producer of the "Night on a
Houseboat" act, which was the headltner
at the Orpheum the week Just over.
There Is no attempt at a plot in the
comedy and the action Is simply supposed
to be an hour's excerpt from a day In the
career, or, more correctly, the total lack
of a career, of the seven hoboes. Tho
septet are true enough to life with one
exception: They are somowhat more gifted
than any seven "sturdy beggars," as j
tramps are called In England.. Of tho
musical numbers one song represents the
vagrant dresrplng of himself as a corsair
bold, and this recalls to mind the "Pirate
King" solo In Gilbert & 8ulllvan's "Pi
rates of Pensance." The whole sketch
may be dismissed with the statement that
It has something of the flavor of the
greatest expression of the spirit of the
vagabond In ..all literature the "beggars'
tavern chorus" In Goethe's "Faust."
Three talented women are a feature of
the weok's bill Amelle Summervllle, Janet
Mellville and Evle Stetson. Tho first
named is famous as a comedienne, but hna
never been seen In Omaha before. She
gives a monologue and songs which Include,
several "bits," which for lack of a bet
ter namo may be called Imitations, al
though they are really reproductions of
character and personalities, to which an
original turn Is given by tho performer's
own Individuality. When a history of
vaudeville Is written, Janet Mellvtlle's ca
reer will have considerable space, for she
has been' Immensely successful In variety
for many years. She still retains and long
will keep the laurels won some time ago
by her topical songs and dialect Imita
tions. Miss stetson s dialect work, It must
be added. Is of an exceedingly high order,
and she makes an admirable companion
for the other.
A dramatic novelty called "A Story of
the Street" was enacted by Madge Hughes
and Tom Harry. It's a study of Bowery
and stage life, with an obvious moral
to the danger of putting on . airs whim
temporary success comes. Barry and Miss
Hughes are both clever and the audience
liked the skit well.
Frank McCrea opened the program with
feats of markmanshlp which are thrilling
' for accuracy and novelty. His shooting
! at two targets with two guns represents
an achievement In double optical focusing
which Is simply amazing, particularly when
one of the targets simultaneously aimed
at and hit, Is In rapid motion.
Paul La Croix added much comedy to
an eccentric and skillful Juggling act. He
has dragged apt alliteration's artful aid
