John C. risher in "Tho Ited Hose"
furnishes us with the most extensive
lirograni of slnglnB and dancing that has
been displayed on a single stage In many
years; ho lias also provided a company
that in more numerous In Its personnel
than is usually presented, even by the
most ambitious of managers, and has
otherwise displayed an opulence that Is
most refreshing in his efforts to make
Ma entertainment worth- while. And
when It Is added that his sinpers can
ring', that his dancers can dance, and
that his comedians are really funny, the
story of the evening is about told. "The
Red Rose" Is extensive in every way, and
to particularize means to exhaust the
vocabulary of praise, so the task will not
be undertaken. The best way to get a
full notion of what Is offered is to at
tend at tho Brandeis while the company
Is holding- foi-th there and see for your
self. It has three long acts, each stuffed
full of the prettiest of pictures of girls
and men, with songs and dances and
humorous sallies, and all telling a really
connected story of life, and love in Paris,
In whins, students, the nobility, and the
Americans who visit the French capital.
Miss Zoo Burnett Is the hard workinsr
member of the company; she has not an
idle moment, for when she Is not on the
Ftage slngins In a captivating way, or
Canclng in a way still mbre fetching, she
Is In her dressing room Inwlly setting
into another sown, more stunning than
the last. She wears about a dozen dif
ferent costumes, all of tho latest, and
scmo that are cilmoHt daring, but every
one an exquisite creation; incidentally.
she has the hats to go with them, and
If it is only viewed from a sartorial
standpoint, her performance Is a distinct
hit. But Miss Harnett can sing wonder
fully well, and dance beautifully, so she
Is a real treat.
Miss De Von Is a saucy soubrette of a
dashing sort, and Miss Ellsworth In
troduces herself to us as another female
comedian of quality. Kach of theso young
persons can dauco and sing. And tWa

The men are well selected, and the male,

piece as has been presented hero In a

After having teamed for two weeks on
serious drama patrons of. the American
theater enthusiastically welcomed ' the
change to farce comedy Sunday after
noon, when the Woodward titock com
pany began a week's run with "Billy."
"Billy" la what might be called a
screaming farce. The play Is built around
a couple of sets of false teeth, the own
ers being Billy llargravc, a foot bull hero
and Mrs. Moane, tho mother of Beatrice,
with whom Hargrave is In love. Sam
Kustace also loves Beatricu. When all
uro voyaging across the Atlantic Eustace
poisons Mrs. fc-loane usalnst Hargrave by
painting him us a fait young man and
fickle. Hargrave proposes to Beatrice
and begins with a confession that he has
false teeth. Ono of the crew awkwardly
bumps against him, knocking him down.
Ho loses his teeth, lit flees in embar
rassment. Beatrice thinks the confession
to abruptly ended was to have been a
confession of a "past." Hargrave, des
perate for teeth, steals those of Mrs.
i-Uoane while she bleep. Kustace, to win
favor with her, endeavors to find the
thief. Hargrave's ' lost teeth are put up
at auction. Ho is determined to have
them and Kustace, thinking they are Mrs.
Sloane'a, makes u contest. The bidding
starts at fn, jumps quickly to hundredj
and finally the teeth ure knocked down
to Hargrave at $l.tx.

Sam Howe'B menu for the pr?5.-nt sea

enjoyment to the audiences at the Oayety
yesterday. Sam Howe calls his organi

are; but yesterday they were fun makers.
It Is a good show, with such a sprinkling
of all sorts of burlesque that It Is very
easy to enjoy. Ohapcly girls swimming
In a huso tank of water brought out a
nolxy demonstration of approval. Two
trained dceis, tho property of Frank
demon, drew a small wagon about the
ttage, and though they have but recently
been broken to drive In harno.-s, they
acted as though they had been pulling
wagons for several years.
Sam Jlowe himself, with a brilliant
group of chorus girls and much attractive

contingent cn a merry chaso through two

Outnlde of the three stars, the work of

mendable. Tho stupid young English

him. Mr. Denlthorne was a member of
tho Woodward fitoel; company In Omaha
for two seasons.
Tho story, as already hinted, hlngos on
the faculty of Ilalston for imitating

trated numberless frauds through this
talent. Tho two are exposed through the
coming to Fngland, at the request of
Captain Hedwood, the detective, of Louis
Percival, who had lost JCW.ilflO through a

Vaudeville nt the Orplieiim.

succers. "The Holfonlans" appear In a

Madamo Hesson comes with her F.ng
llsh company In a dramatic, playlet, "The
Woman Who Knew." The lines are finely
drawn, though tremendous In effect, deal
ing with passions that bring on divorces,
and though highly dramatic, there Is a
burst of comedy at tht climax that lifts
the audience from tears.
It sounds like a bit absurd, but It la
true, that at tho matinee performance
Bunday a man, a big hearty fellow, went
Into such paroxysms of laughter that he
cried, and It was necessary for his friends
to carry him out of the theater. This
happened when Chick Kales, the comody
piotean entertainer, was presenting his
conception of "A Country School Enter

ho makes seven changes of character so
rapidly that the audience Is astounded.

Read This Extraordinary Statement
It is more than -an argument. It is such a state
ment as cannot be made by any other dealer in Omaha
who has sold any quantity of other makes of high
priced '. automobiles for any considerable length of
time. We want you to read this carefully and con
sider how much it means in assured satisfaction to the
purchaser of a Pierce Arrow. Here it is:
There is not one man in our territory who
over bought a Pierce Arrow, no matter how
long ago he bought it, nor how high his f inanoial
standing, but who still owns that same Pierce
Arrow with the exception of one party for whom we
disposed of his car at the highest price that has ever
been paid for a second-hand car in this territory to
enable him to purchase a higher powered Pierce.
Such men as buy Pierce Arrow automobiles could not be induced under nny
circumstances to continue to use a car which in any way failed to absolutely fulfill
its intended purpose of giving dependable1, uninterrupted daily service to its owner.
In the continued ownership of a car so good, so responsive to every demand,
o creditable in appearance and m low in upkeep costs, these men have found the
one great factor of economy iu motor car buying, that is, they have avoided the
high rate of yearly depreciation which usually is a source of greater expense than
all items of car maintenance combined.
Our entire year's allotment of Pierce's will be delivered on
definite schedule and we have but few open delivery dates between
now and April 1st. Part of these cars are coming through with
closed bodies. We shall be pleased to have you call at our sales
room, 'phone or write us if you desire further information.
