Henry Arthur ones' new play, "Holly

fi.arket this Week, and dse for production
In Atn?rrP later en, contains about the
liveliest, most effective quarrel between a
Dukbaad and wife that fan be found on
the stage or In life, either. That quarrel,
ks conducted Ay Bthel Irving fend Robert
Loralne, and lasting some ten minutes, ful
fills the Ideal onea aet before hie by ah
American manager. Who said: "I don't
care how rotten A play M. If It haa five

so ripping that It makes a bored first-night
udlence alt up and forget Itself, that is
tho play I'll pay good money for." At
Mr. Jones gave tie ten minutes Instead of
five, he ought to get twice the money.
But It (a difficult to ay how much of the
reward he ught to divide With Ethel
Irving, for It waa her one big chance in
th play, and the made the most of it
She, the 'Dolly" of the play, haa no tense

Ing on a rather dahgefoua flirtation, and
they, too, resolved to reform. The first
three acta of the play take place In Dolly's
drawing room on New Tears day and by
the time we reach midnight In the third
act all the good resolutions are broken,
the flirtation la "on" fiercely and Dolly
and her husband are having their scrap.
The cynical fourth act Is an almost exact
repetition of the first act, taking p'aoe on
Mew tear' day of the following year,
with the tame people In the same sur
roundings, doing the same old things In
the same old way, and proving the truth of
the theory of the old professor In the play'
(he Is the husband of the lady of the
flirtation) that people are not free moral
agents, but hetpleea Victims of the chance
arrangement of gray matter In their brains.
But after the first five minutes the fourth
act la rather a bore, for ybu know pretty
much what everybody Is going to do and

Music and Musical Notes
Midway in the week at th Bdyfl Wal
"The Man the Hour," to which a largo
attendance on Its return visit testified to
the appreciation locally of a play to which
a great critic gave the aucclunt but force
ful eulogy, "Here Is a play which meant
lfiarly in th .week William Collier, UH
Wcerled among American comedians as an
J tor fcnd as a man, played "The Patriot,"
with the assistance of Miss Helen Hale
and an excellent supporting company. Mr.
Collier ban gon from here to face the
most ilfflcult on'eal which a player meets
opening In New York. Tonight the cur
tain ot the Grrl; k theater of that city will
ring up cn hli new play for the first time.
It Is to be exjected that there will be
some hostile cs'ltlilsm ot thia comedy.
There are many who demand more body
In a play than "The Patriot" posscsac.
But the vehicle, at least as played by
him, Miss Hale and the others, really Is
meaty enough for a farce comedy, and
"The Patriot" purports to be no more.
Certainly of tho acting ther Will be little
or no fault finding.
Had the comedy no other merit It would
at least be Worthy, as giving Coiller
chance to make smile follow amile, chuck re
com ,on chuckle, and laugh reap after
laugh. Besides and this may be Impor
tant In time to vme 4t serve t mark
th change from musical comedy to drama
of Helen Hale.
Mis Hale has for several years been
exploited by press agents aa a Wellesley
college girl as she is. She has been re
marked by every reviewer who did "Wood
land; or. The Yankee Tourist," as a young
woman whose native refinement made them
discriminate her from a hundred other
soubrettes In musical 'comedy. She might
have continued a auccess In that work as
long as L,ulu Glaser and Fay Templeton
A more ambitious effort art her part M
pleasant to contemplate, not only because
such a desire is worth while In Itself, but
because, as she has already demonstrated,
ah haa besides the wish, the talent and
temperament to succeed In a richer field.
Bhe ahio has the necessary brains and tho
education, two fairly. Important factor, the
lack ef which have held back, More tat
eated men and wm niv th stage than
anything else which could b named.
On thing Is certain: gh will not lack
for opportunities, tor she hts alno the
heevca-glven faculty of making all who
know lier like her well.
At the Krug that popular old standby,
"McFadden'a Flats," did a lg business at
the opening of th week and was followed
by lyman Howe's motion pictures.; "Sold
Into Slavery," a thrilling melodramp. also
packed thia playhouso later In the week.
The Orpheum preaented a bill which
pleased its patrons and good business re
atilted all week.
ABT Bufiday, In this column, th
person who writes It had some
thing to offer for considera
tion In the difference be
tween "energy" ana 1 ''effl
clency." Since that time other
thoughts . on the matter have oc
curred to him. For example, take that
question of studying abroad. There are so
many people Who go abroad and who are
very "energetic" and apparently Very busy
accumulating knowledge and education,
end still they are not becoming "efficient."
We have had many examples of people
who have gone abroad to study, who have
stayed and worked and plodded, and yet
they have not taught the "efficiency"
hsMt. They can. talk about various teach
er and methods. They cart do everything
but thow their efficiency.
The writer heard a recital by some Amer
kun girls at a certain place In Berlin lust
year, n wet simply pathetic. It Wat Worse
than pathellc. It was terrible. Those potir
girls thought that because they were in
Berlin they must be on Hi right track.
The one who writes this could name a
doien Vole teacher lit Omaha who could
have put those girl in the right way and
could have made something ot their voices.
Now, here cornea th Musical Courier of
New York with an editorial, and by tha
way, the editorial In that paper are alwayt
bristling, they are to full ot point. It
"Among the 1,430 American music stu
dent who Went abroad this tall for study,
were I,3K 'second Melbat.' 1,286 'second
Paganlnls,' 1,284 'second Rubinsteins,' 1.2S3
'second Beethoven,' i,2S( econd David
offs.' Most of them traveled tecbhd class
and Will b second class also When they return."
These figure are startling, and It should
be hoted that they Apply only ts tlinst
who have gone abroad "this fall."
And the pity of It is that some Will porno
back "second class," Inefficient, and some
will die of disappointment and grief, and
aome will be broken hearted und Will hot
have the courage to come back and will
try t en it H.
It Would tie very' Interesting to" read an
article on "Tho American student abroad
and what becomea of him or her," written
by the brilliant Mr. Kluinenberg. The
Musical Courier is scored ofttlmes because
it makes people pay If they want recog
nition In It columns, and It I tald that
the Courier will slight and underestimate
their work If they Ho not yield to the
suggestions of the business of flee, it But
one d. e not have to go o 'it side Omaha to
find that condition).
And the Musical Courier does not pre
tend to be In the business tor Its health.
There I ho writer on musical subject
today Whose article fere so full Of Straight
Virile common sense and who haa such a
tremendously forceful way of putting It
before one, a thlt tame Mr. Blumenberg
of tne Musical courier. This la not an
advertisement. The musical critic of The
Bee was formerly connected locally with
that papeis but he Is not at present.

In this column next week.

i fact that every one Shares the burden of

It 1 with pleasure, that attention Is
drawn to the program of the piano recital
to be given next Wednesday evening by
Mr. Martin Bush. Here is a young man
who Is becoming "efficient." He I or
ganist ot the First Congregational church
and was re-engaged thia year by that or
ganisation at a handaome Increase In
alary. Mr. Bush waa connected with a
local .business firm until recently when,
upon the advlc of hi best friends and
some of the leading musician, he decided
to give up entirely hi business connection
and devote himself to his profession. Mr.
Bush's program appears below, under
the heading "Musical Notes."
The suggestion haa been made that Bun
day, December 13, being In the very midst
of the National Corn exposition period
(December to II) at Omaha, the leading
choirmaster of Omaha should make up
their programs of harvest or nature music.
This would b very interesting and ap
propriate, and coming so aoon after
Thanksgiving mualo it would not be bard
to do. Sacred musical comp- sltionM
abounding In allusion and references to
corn, grain, th fields, nature, harvest.
etc., are vary numerous, and it would be
a very good idea to act on this' suggestion
and lead the thought 'from nature up to
nature Ood.'' The suggestion la passed
on td th choirmaster with the hope that
they may see fit to adopt It. The choir
master of the First Methodist Episcopal
church will adopt It with the consent of
hla pastor. THOMAS KELLY
