It Is said that he waa unsuccessful and

Tlddlsh is one of the many languages
which the ordinary theatergoer does not
speak, but illitersry in this tongue Is net
diAQnaliflcatlon to the enjoyment of th
acting of Madame Kenny Liprln. who.
with her company, presented "Mlrele Ef
fro"' last evening. The drama bear th
sub-title of "The Jewish Queen Lesr." a
caption which would lead to the correct
supposition thst the drama, which Is by
Jacob Oordln, ts a study In fUlal revolt
and Ingratitude. There la, cf course, a
change from the Shakespearean tragedy
named. In the sex of the principal char
acter and likewise the Gonertl and Regnn
of the Gordln play are sons Instead of
daughters. There Is one other fairly Im
portant divergence from the old tragcdyi
for the ending cf "Mlrele Effros" is happy.
It la hardly too much to ssy that just
as one need cot be proficient In French to
get an evening's pleasure when Bernhardt
holds th boards, or In Italian when Dues
plays "La Toeca," so similarly the acting
of Madame Llpsln has an universal ap
peal. During her first scene, when she
rules the home, imperious, dominant, al
most regal; during another scene, when
her sons rebel and clamor for a division
of th estate left by their father, the
mother now at ence affronted and grieved;
sgaln when she recites how the father
really left nothing but debts and bow she
trcrght the estate to affluence all the
varying emotions she felt could easily bs
read upon a mobile countenance, what was
passing in her mind was made clear
through gesture, Intcnatlon and accent.
It must not be thought thtt the author
who wrote th drama lrnown a "The

Shakespearean plot, for except In the gen

Vaadevllle at tke Orphean.
Bo tense and gripping is the sketch. "The
Operator," at the Orpheum this week, that
when sn engine's whistle signified that the
feared horrible wreck had not happened,
an audible sigh went up from the audi
ence. A fine-spun debate might be held
as to whether or not the sketch Is melo
dramatic. At any rate, for ninety-nine
out of every hundred spectators it is far
more thrilling than any "Dip of Death,'
or "Slide for Life" could possibly be. Ly
ter Chambers plays the telegrsph operator,
who. at the end of a seventy-hour con
tmuous trick lets two trains come near
smashing head-on. Clara Knott is Sally,
th operator's wife.
The situation Is tense enough with a col
lision imminent, but Just to mske It thor
oughly harrowing Charles Kenyon, the
author, causes his hero to resolve to shoot
bis wife, bsby and himself If, when the
clock strikes eleven, the whistle does not
signify that the catastrophe has been
averted. As the cIocS strikes, the half-
erased man raises his revolver tnechanl
ca:iy and as the hour is tolled off the sit
uation becomes almost unbearably taut
strung. It is a tribute to the acting of
the man and woman that the climax li
thus so convincing thst the sound of th
whistle is a veritable relief. The sketch
Is admirably staged and ths simulation of
the sounds of an approaching and depart-

Thla is Mr. Grew's week at the Bur-
wood, and he is making much of It. "The
Prince Chap" Is a pretty story of how a
man gave up much for others, and did
It with no thought save to help them, snd
in the end It all came home to him, Just
aa It was prophesied of bresd cast on the
waters. And another beauty of the play is
that It Is without a villain, or any bad
person In any wsy, shape or form. It
hasn't a pang In It Several places might
cause a tear to flow, but they will be
tears cf Joy, not of sorrow. And It hss
the richest of good natured comedy In It,
so that it is in all ways enjoyable.
Mr. Grew is presenting the role of a
young American sculptor who went to
London, leaving In New Tork a girl who
hsd pledged her heart to him. He struggles
with fortune, keeping his heart true and
his hand open to every one. A woman
comes to his studio dying, and begs him
to care for her baby girl. He promises, and
before he has time to regret the woman
dies. Th little one easily finds her wsy
into his heart, but after three years the

both logically and happily. It requires of
Mr. Grew that he be simple and natural,

and making his points with great cer
tainty and without apparent effort. It is
pitched in a minor key, and is very well
rendered. Incidentally, he proves thst he

aspirations for the coming of Ssnta Claus
and her solicitude for "Daddy" and Puck

tltula for sssumlng a part. To say Miss
Ellott gives to the 18-year-old Claudia the
graces snd girlish sttrsctlveness of the age

that la not discovered until snother asks
her to marry. Then aha realises that she
is no longer a child. The closing scenes of
the plsy are between Miss Eliott and Mr.
Connor and Mr. Grew, and are delightful.
To change from th role of Camille to that
of Claudia is a complete reversal, and to
