She played two masons In New York, and
the people cf that village are sharply di

Tho B:rwnod company will return from
Its tour and will reopen the theater this
afttrn6on with a production of Oscar
Wilde's "Salome." Great preparations have
been made for this and unusual efforts are
expected from each of the players In the
cast. The company played "The Devil"
on the road and was rewarded by tremend
ous business at each town. At St. Joseph,
where the company appeared at the Audi
torium, more than li.fXiO people were present
at the opening performance. The press of
the city praises the company quite as lib
erally as have the Omaha papers. One of
;he pleasant features of tho first per
formance at St. Joseph was the reception
accorded William Grew, who . was once
leading man In a stock company down
there. When he made his first appearance
on Thursday evening he was given such a
welcome as made him understand thut
St. Jno folks had not forgotten him. The
crltisc also gave him most complimentary
notices on his work. All of which merely
emphasizes what The Bee has said several
times about the Importance of the present

man, who, lucky man, has secured a corner
on his output as a playwright, a new
three-act light comedy. It Is called "Peno-

Marie Tempent, who is now appearing In
"Mrs. Dot," also written by Maugham and
which you are yet to see. I have an Idea
that Charles Frohman, who controls the
American rights ot "Mrs. Dot" thinks
Marie Tempest has Just about made the
character her own, and that the play will
be saved for her use when, a year hence.

advertising such as had never been seen
In Iomdon since the days of the earlier
Sousa Invasion. He engaged Queen"s hall
which In local Importance ranks with Car
negie hall, New York. Symphony hall,
Boston, and the Auditorium In Chicago
for ten dates and at once frightened the
manager of that dignified abode of the
muses by requesting permission to erect
a large electric sign at right anglea to lta
Imposing facade. As thla was an Idea
which no ono had heretofore had the te

must refer It to his managing Olrector.
After a day or two, Mr. Brown asked for
hla answer. He was told that as It was
something quite unexpected, you know, the
matter had been held over for a special
meeting of the entire board of dl.ectors. An
other few duys elapsed and again Mr-
Brown asked for his answer to this un
heard-of request. This tin lie got It, and
It Is the first and last time that I have
ever known Mr. Brown to be at a loss for
words In which to express himself. The
answer was: 'I'm frightfully sorry, don't
you know, but one of our principal stock
holders on the board, a rather conserva
tive old chap, objects most keenly to the
electric sign, you know, because he says
he Is afraid It will make the hall too aw

The next Burton Holmes' lecture will be
given at the Boyd theater on Wednesday
evening, "London" being the subject.
'The Revelation," a drama In four acts
by Henry Knott, which will be the attrac
tion at Boyd theater Sunday and Monday
December 13 and 14, Is the first In a cycle
of plays by a newly discovered American
dramatist. Two other plays are to follow
In succession, each one dealing with
another step In a certain great evolution.
In the first play, the law of cause and
effect; the law of compensation Is treated.
A story with tremendous situations and
thrilling climaxes has been written and the
lesson is put forth In concrete form In the
characters of the play. The piece will be
presented by the Martin & Emery players,
an organization formed for the purpose of
producing the cycle of plays by Mr. Knott.
These players are headed by Mary Shaw.
MIbs Shaw Is ably assisted In the portrayal
of this drama, by Wilfred Roger, Walter
Horton, Adelaide Fltz-Allen, Gordon Men
delssohn, George Fox and others.

LONDON", Nov. 15. "I thought everybody
In the Li Ited Elates had forgotten mo long
befo.e this," declared Marje George when
1 tntc:cl her dressing room at the Dru:y
Lu:u tieaUr a couplo of nights ago. "Do
you U.li.lc they have?'' she added appie
hensivc'.y, tiitreby demonstrating that she
was net sj sure of It as her first remark
would lead one tj believe. I assured her
that many playgoers on your side of the
Atlnnti- still had a warm spot In their
hearts fir her, and thereby cleared tho way
for the real object of my visit to learn
some p-irtlculars of her coming return to
tier native land.
"Yt s, I am going back to good old Amer
ica," she said. "How soon? Well, that Is
ha:d to say. I came very near going this
year, but the musical comedy In which It
was Intended to present mu In New York
did not look strong enough for me, and I
was uf:aid. At the present time, although
I have not yet signed any papers and have
net ytt seen the revised r.iusical comedy, I
ttcllcvo everything will be all rlKht and
that I will leave for tho United Statos
next spring, after tho pantomime season
f t the Drury Lane draws to a closo. I will
probably go over under the management
of Joseph Brooks In a play called 'Vic
toria,' of which Victor Herbert Is the com
ron.T and George llcbart Is the author.
Thut looks like a pretty good combination,
dors it not?
"Do you know, I am awfully nervous
abiut this return to muy own country. I
do not v. uni. to go unless 1 can go in the
strongest kind of a play, In a part that
will give me tho oppo.tunlty of a lifetime.
I was very much dsnppointod In my part
In "tl e Stroller,' which, as you know, was
tho last thing I uppeared In In the United
States. I really hud the wrong part and
I i!o uot wuut to make the same mistake
this time. In KiiKlanl, of course, I now
have a fixed place. I made a big hit In my
first appearance and the pooplo have tiken
me to their hearts ever since. Both In
side and outside the theater I have been
trt-a'ed with the greatest kindness and nat
urally It Is hard for me to tear myself
from a safe harbor to cull unknown
theul rli al waters. But I am ruing to do

room in which we were sitting and re
marked on Its luxurious fittings, the eay
chains, and tho big open fire that robbed
the chill from the November fog that pen

"You won't get a dressing room like this
In the United States," I said.
"I know I won't." Miss George answered
with a sigh, "but then, you know, we have
almost unlimited room here. The cast of
"The Marriages of Mayfair," which we are
now playing, does not number more than
thirty people from principals to supers,
while In pantomime time more than a thou
rand are engaged back of the stage. But
I don't cure how cheerless my dressing
room In the United States Is if I can be
iure of a warm welcome from the people
on the other side of the footlights."
I dlbrovered among other things that
Marie George's horison waa not bounded

Interview with her a vague Idea that her
part In "The Marriages of Muyfair" that
of the vlllainess had been aesumed by her

until, the pantomime season, rolled urouud.

of our talk, "that my present part Is a big

John Towell tried a new American sultt,
of his own composing, on an KnglUh. u
dience for the first time at his piano re
cital till week, und tho occasion proved to
have considerable significance, for it Is
doubtful if such characteristically Ameri
can musio has ever been provided before
In a serious composition for the piano. The
uiM Is entitled, "At the Fair," and the
At the Omaha Theaters.
Pantomime Is one of the chief tricks In
the box of the Latin born player. American
and English actors may acquire It, but it
is Intuitive In the French, the German or
the Italian. The Russian actor, being of
the combined spirit of all of these, has it
to perfection. This has been noted wher
ever Madame Nazlmova has appeared. She
Is perfect In her pantomime, some times
she plays scenes of several minutes' dura
tion without speaking a word. She knows
the value of motion to do more than the
spoken word. To see her In the characters
of Hedda or Nina In two of her playa la to
sec pantomime In perfection, .It is said.
Those who watch her cannot fall to be In
terested In the motions of the delicate ever-
moving fingers, the swaying body, the
raised or lowered eyelid. The Russian
player knows the value of such work and
makes use of It. Even In private life the
Interviewer has been struck with the man
ner In which she employs her hands they
are never still, sometimes clasping or un
clasping, sometimes extended to point a
story, often restlessly moving about the
arm of her chair. Each gesture she uses
Madame Nazlmova, yet under 30 years of
age, has crowded Into her stage experience
years of study and work. At the beginning
of her career she was a violinist and played
first flddlo In the orchestra of her homo
conservatory. Later she went to the Con
servatory of the Stage at Moscow, and
studied for three years before she went on
the stago. During this long course she
studied pantomime and deslarte, dancing
and expression. All her natural aptitude for
using her hands and body to express emo
tions was developed and aided by these
means. After going on the stage she played
In many countries and many roles, and In
all of them she used her pantomime abil
One of tho strangest characteristics of
this famous Russian actress Is her ability
to apparently change her stature. As Nora,
In "A Doll's House," Nazlmova Is the rest
less, romping girl and seems almost a child
As Hedda, In "Hedda Gabler," Nazlmov
Is the tall, swaying woman, apparently
without a bone In her body. This character
Is one to which she gives almost a serpen
tine aspect. Standing, In some of her
scenes, with her tall figure draped In the
peculiarly unique gowns she has herself
designed for this role, the odd effect of the
clinging, folding drapery Is both engaging
and puzzling at the same time. Sitting In
one of the chairs, which seem to lend them
selves to her figure, as Indeed they were
selected to do, Madame Naslmova Is a suc
cession of supple curves. No dress has at
traded more attention on the stage than
the tight-fitting black gowns she wears aa
Hedda, and no pictures draw the eye as
quickly as the Hedda group posed by
madame to show some ot this Ibsen worn
In only one of her roles does Madame
Nazimova develop this oddity of outline,
for as Nora she dresses and acts as a sim
ple young girl; as Hilda, In "The Master
Builder," she Is the rather rough country
bred girl without many deeply feminine
traits; as I.ona. In "The Comet," she is
the tall and stately actress, and as Nina,
In "Comptesse Coquette," she Is again the
woman of society, graceful and natural In
her poses. It is In "Hedda Gabler" that
the serpentine pose Is maintained only.
Madame Naslmova will be seen at the
Boyd theater on Thursday, Friday and Sat
urday evenings of this week, and at a mat
inee on Saturday. On Thursday evening
she will play Nora In "A Doll's House;"
on Friday evening she will play Hedda In
'Hedda Gabler;" at the Saturday matinee
'A Doll's House" will be repeated, and
Saturday evening Mme. Nazlmova will be
en as Nina In "Comptesse Coquette."
Williams and Walker, those real king
pins of song and laughter, who open at the
Boyd December 17 for three days and a
matinee In their latest musical success
entitled, "Bandanna Land," write all their
own songs, practically and originate all
the, "business" of their specialties; and
though they are universally copied, Will-
lams and Walker are so Inimitably funny
In their performance, that In spite of the
many clever Imitators, the popularity of
these original entertainers continues to
grow, for there Is that elusive "something"
about their work no one can take from
them. "Bandanna Land," Is said to stand
out as their greatest triumph, as was
proven by their recent four month's "run"
In the Majestic, theater. New York City. It
is replete with Inspiring music, good,
wholesome, clean comedy, gorgeous cos
tumes and magnificent scenery.
