Good Plays, Small Crowds at Theaters

NOTHER nwk of rood plays and
mpty houses Is added to the
history of the stage In Omaha.
In thla case It la not the fault
of the public; the people un
doubtedly wanted to go to the
theater, but the prospect of walking home
was too uncertain, and the possibility of
having a brick bounced off his head on the
way down didn't appeal very strongly to
the man who had rotten home from worn
without having It actually happen. So the
players went through each night with the
cordial approval of the few who did con
gregate there, and gave exoellent perform
ances for the edification of folks who made
up in enthusiasm what was lacking In num
bers. The Burwood presented two excellent
attractions. First of these was Bert Wil
liams and company In "Mr. Lode of Koal."
The name la strikingly significant of the
peculiar sort of comedy that attaches to
Williams' name, and the piece and the com
pany were In no wise dlsappoitlng. Mr.
Williams has the good sense to realise his
limitations, and doesn't undertake to over
come by assutnftfoa any natural obstacle
that has been placed In hta way. But by
pure tajent he has raised himself to a plaoe

The other play at the Burwood was
Eugene Walters' "The Wolf." presented
with much care by a Shubert
organisation. The power of this
play to hold resides In the directness of Its
appeal. It deals with the primitive pas
sions, the elemental attributes of man, and
has for Its background and atmosphere
the nature to which we all get close once
in our lives at least. It presents the
eternal triangle, with no variation as to
situations; two men and one woman, and
one man wins her. The other man la
killed. The winner, of course, typifies the
good and noble, the other man Is evil. One
Is of nature, the other civilization. But
the main Interest In the Walters' play Is
Its proof of the thin support of which
dramatlo reputations may sometimes be
bullded. A few short months ago Eugene

The story In brief deals with the absurd

material for dramatlo conflict la supplied

are the following: Harry Brown, James
Bevlns, Harry Malnhall, Wilson Reynolds,
Marcus Morlarty, Lydla Dickson, Helen
Tracy and Winona Shannon.
Richard Carle, author, composer and
comedian, comes to the Boyd theater
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Saturday
matinee. He will appear as the hen-pecked
hero of "Mary's Lamb," the best of all his
musical comedies. "Mary's Lamb" was or
iginally a French farce, "Mme. Mongodin,"
known to the English stage as "Mrs. Pon
derbury's Past." Mr. Carle, however,
adapted his play from the original French,
laying all scenes In this country and mak
ing all the characters American. He brings
a splendid company of principals. Including
Julia Ralph as the shrew, Adele Rafter as
the charmer, Violet Seaton, prima donna,
as a debutante; Rita Stanwood as a foot
ball girl, Helen Brandon as a Dutch girl,
Sylvian Langlols as a westerner, Joseph
Coffman as a talkative darky servant,
George Bogues as an artist, Abbott Adams
as a Judge, and many ethers. The chorus
Al G. Field's Annual Banquet

to the members of his company
and Invited guests by Al G.

minstrels, Columbus, O. The banquet is
given yearly on the anniversary of the first

Members of the first company, who could
be located, prominent men in the theatrical
profession, newspapermen and others havs
been Invited to Join with the minstrels upon
their gala occasion and many accept
ances have already been received. Origin
ally this banquet was confined to members
of the company and a few local guests,
but the growing popularity of the feast and
the greatly diversified Interest and places
represented about the tables, now makes
the affair of greater Importance.
Many familiar names appear upon the
roster of the first company and It Is of gen
. eral Interest to note what has become of
' these old time black face artists who so
' uproarously amused wtth their antics. A
number , bave answered their last curtain

I structed around a poem of
Drei riarie enuuca A
Newport Romance." The
poem was published In 1ST!
and consists of nineteen stansas, the
first seven of which tell the legend of a
haunted house that formerly stood near
the town of Newport, R. I. The last
two of these seven stansas are used by
Augustus Thomas In one of the finest
bits of dramatlo sentiment ever penned
by a native writer. The first seven
stanzas of this poem are as follows:
They say she died of a broken heart,
(I tell the tale as 'twas told to me)
But her spirit lives and her soul Is
Of this sad old house by the sea.
Her lover was fickle and fine and
It was nearly a hundred years ago
When he sailed away from her arms
With the Admiral Rochambeau.

and the play Is lifted bodily from a novel

under the management of James H. Decker,
will be the offering at the Burwood theater
next Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The
"frame" this season Is entlUed "The Pos
sum Aero Club." Tho president of this
organization, who U a hypnotist, makes
DockBtader believe that there Is a mythi
cal country known as "Doughland" In the
center of Africa, where gold coins and
Jewels of every kind grow on tree. Even
the sun, tho hypnotist declares, is gold.
Dockstader is foolish enough to undertake
the Journey, the hypnotist and tha other
members of tho olub urging him on. Dock
stader surprises them by actually reaching
tho country where money does grow on
trees and diamonds aa large aa horses'
heads may be had for the ploklng. Ho in
vades It under the guise of Roosevelt The
treasure, of course. Is carefully guarded by
savage tribe, to escape from which
Dockstader employs an aeroplane. One
of tho prettiest and most picturesque num
bers Is called "The Ruby and the Pearl."
In this tho male dancers are dressed to
represent rubles and tha girls are clothed
as pearls. After Dockstader has escaped
from Doughland by means of his aero
plane, which, by the way, Is a real ma
chine, permitting Dockstader to fly out
over the heads of the audience, ho returns
to tho Possum Aero olub, where he cele
brates hi escape by distributing coins and
diamonds. Thero will bo a matinee Satur
day. Playgoers who are weary of tho modern
"star" play In which one character has
all the good lines and the rest of tho oom
pany only enough to say to show that they
are not painted on the back drop, will be
delighted with "Checkers." at the Krug
theater on Sunday, October 3, for the en
tire week. The title role, of course, Is the
biggest part of any In the play, but "Push"
Miller runs him so close a second that one
well known comedian, to whom the author
submitted the play, declined It altogether.
"D'ye think I'd play In a piece with two
whacking big parts In It?" he demanded."
"Checkers," as the hero, naturally has th
lion's share of tho applause, but "Push"
Miller has tho center of tho stage more
than once, and Checkers' rival for ths hand
of the heroine has what actors call a "big
scene" In act one. Perhaps ths heartiest
laughs In the whole piece go to an actor
who does little but sit on a cracker box
and laugh. There Is not a poor part , In
"Checkers" nor a part which could bs cut
out without vital Injury to the play. Thla
necessitates the employing of actors onj
actresaes of ability, and while It mak-as the
play one a star would worry over. It de
lights the hearts of playgoers to whom one
extravagantly advertised actor and a com
pany of nonentlea does not make a play.
In his amusing fantasy, "Pat and the
Oenll," which comes to the Orpheum this
week as the headline feature, Tom Nawn
presents a realistic, every-day kind of
Celtlo laborer with a rich, mellow brogue
and laughable whimsy. "The Narrow Kel
ler," Charles F. Semon calls himself. With
his musical monologue he will be one of
tho mlrth-provokers of the bllL He Is thin
of legs, and his appearance is grotesquely
funny. Pastimes of the old plantation days
will be presented by a troup of singing
and dancing darkies. Including Johnson
and Wells. "Sunny Bouth" Is the name of
the offering. "Trimmed" Is the title of the
breecy skit to be offered by Harrison Arm
strong. Funny stories and Celtic wit come from
Arthur Whttelaw. An eccentric comedy
pair Is Martini and Maximilian. Their act
is said to be novel as well aa very funny.
Late prima donna wtth the Frank Daniels
company, Miss Julia Frary, Is now In
vaudeville. Her offering will be a number
of songs. Including several numbers from
plays In which she has been featured. The
Klnodrome will project the latest of motion
pictures, and the Orpheum Concert orches
tra will offer two musical numbers before
