Mr. Peters will use the building as an uptown depository for alfalfa seed and meat The building fronts on Sixteenth street and Is three stories in height st that end and five at the rear, where the Belt line runs. The Immediate proximity of trackage is another reason why the warehouse la a desirable one. The building was put up In 1SS7 by W T.

Miss Schoenhnls Her little boy Miss J. Ooldstetn 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 Kreutxer Sonata" has really copied the Shakespearean plot, for except In the gen eral way indicated there Is a wide diverg ence. The discord In the home begin whn Joseph, the elder son. has Introduced his bride there and also her good-for-noth ing father. It la tb daughter-in-law, Schendele, P'-ayed by Miss Schoenhols, who proves to be the serpent in Eden. Once the money is secured. Xochemse Chan Dvore, the father-in-law, proceeds to make ducks and drakes of it, the daughter stirring up all the trouble she can, and Daniel, the other son, helping things along by becoming thoroughly dissolute. Wbst really forced the harrassed mother to leave the bom was, however, sn accusation of dishonesty against Schalman (Mr. Hirsch) for thirty years her bookkeeper and confidential as sociate In business. After a nerve-racking scene in which time. Lipiin rsn the gamut of anger, sorrow snd heart-deep grief, she goes away to find a refuge In Schalman's home. With him she re-engages In busi ness, snd thus by th Um her sons hsve lost all their money she is once more In opulent circumstances. The medium of reconciliation is a grand child. Mlrele Effros dwells Brain where formerly she hsd swsy. snd with a firm command of the domestic exchequer and her sons chsstened by the not very sweet oses of adversity, the prospects when the last curtain comes down are that serenity will continue for some time-In the house hold. ..i . Mme. Lipsin In physique, temperament and method reminds one thurTf of Modjeska, as the great Polish womatf was when in ner prime. Her support Is good, but ss much Inferior to her ss were-the plsyers with whom Modjeska was surrounded, Mme. Lipxin will be seen this evening in a totally different role, playing a 16-year-old girl In "The Orphan." another product of Gordin's pen. 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- HOW COLDS ARE CONTRACTED ALWAYS RESULT OP UNDUE EXPOSURE.

Mme. Theresa F.ens hss arrived f r net equestrienne act after some weeks of her alding, and ber act, which Is the top-V.nr of the week, waa awaited with considerable expectancy. It is a circus turn brought onto the stage of a theater and is alto gether effective. Mme.

Comedy is contributed to th bill by Warren and fclanchard. the former of whom is particularly amusing in a number of the conversation and song kind, and by the monkeys, spes snd baboons. listed as "Bei: Hsthswsy's Simian Flaymstea." There are no less than seventeen of these nimals with prehensile eitremltles In th j troupe, Including the monkey wslter. ho is genuinely funny aad "the only plate-catching baboon In the world." The bill opena with Will Campbell and tb Stock sisters In a novel Juggling act which merits the adjective "dainty." The setting for this ss well as th other acts of the week deserves mention. Another num ber on the bill Is thst of the Jupiter broth ers, two Oklahoma com bo) s who have abandoned the aaddls for a seat In a cabi net of mysteries. The act resembles some what the performance conducted by de votee of spiritualism or "splrtUam. as It mors property called. Th performara. however, scorn th suggestion thst they re ceive aid from departed souls. Carter and Buford appear la character songs, with appropriate setting for each. They were most successful with their last offering, which was an Indian affair, and achieved a good measure of applause when the curtain was rung down. The Prince Chap" at tho Bwrwoow. The Burwood Stock company In "The Prince Chap," a comedy in three acts and five scenes, by Edwin Peple. The cast: William Peyton, an American sculptor.. Mr. Grew Jsck Rodney, earl of Huntington Mr. connor Marcus Runlon, Peyton's "man" Mr. Cllshee Balllnrton Mr. Todd Zadder , Mr. lngraham Frits Mr. Bacon Truckman Mr. Donlan Claudia (at i years! Mercedes flpong L iaunia (at K years) Celia Mararulls Claudia (at 18 years) M.as tl.iolt Mrs. Allington, Claudia s mother Miss Downln Phoebe Puckers, a maid of all work . Jane Jsffery Alice Travers, "Princess Alice" Miss Stearns 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 girl he left In New Tork calls on him to demand that he make his choice between them. He declines to send the little one away, and she charges him with being fall hi ess and leaves him to wed snother. Ten years later shreturns a widow and seeks to win blra back, but he discovers that ward, grown to be a woman, hss be come more than a ward, and the play end both logically and happily. It requires of Mr. Grew that he be simple and natural, and h- is. easy and accurate in his work 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 Is not altogether unfamiliar with ths wsys of little folks snd It Is not sll the lines of the plsy that leads little Claudls In the first act to call him a "mother In trousers." He prepsres the tot for bed with all the easy skill of a paterfamlliaa of experience Other little touches add much to the ex cellence of the characterisation. To make Claudia properly it will be light to treat her in an ascending scale, even as did tha author. LllUe Mercedes Spong. who is a cousin once removed of Hilda Spong ahows traces of the ability of her better known cousin. Shs was a tremendous sue cess last night, prattling ber lines with tb artless ease of a genuine Infant rather than making the stilted declamation of "prodigy." And Cecilia Margulta, who Is trifle more familiar with play acting. was very charming as the -year-oil Claudia. Her preparations as well as her aspirations for the coming of Ssnta Claus and her solicitude for "Daddy" and Puck ers and all the rest evinced a natural sp tltula for sssumlng a part. To say Miss Ellott gives to the 18-year-old Claudia the graces snd girlish sttrsctlveness of the age tells It mildly. She is still the artless girl at ber entrance, but suddenly developes Into a woman under the impulse of a love 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 do it as well aa Miss Ellott has dons speaks much for the adaptability. Ths comedy Is furnished by the other members of the company. Mr. Connor is very good in the role of Jack Rodney, otherwise the earl of Canterbury; Mr. Clls bee makes a bully good serving man and general factotum around the studio; Miss Jeffery hss a character that gives her fine chsnce for her bent for comedy, aad Messrs lngraham, Todd snd Bacon are a trio of happy-go-lucky artist chsps who help the prince chsp to lesd a merry life la the studio building. Miss Btesrn ha th only thankless role In th Wll, that of tb girl who Jilts the prince chap, but she does her part welL Miss Downln has the role of Claudia'a mother and ker short scene is effectively done. Two very l&r-ge aud le-nces assembled st the Burwood yesterday and gavs enthus iastic i pre salon of the approval of the play. It will run all week, with the regular matinees and an extra matinee on New Tear's afternoon.
