is not only noteworthy In the superiority
which emanates from ridiculously funny

to l;eep the' laughing muscles of their

added greatly to Ms reputation. Ills PI ft
FHnsloo In "The Red Kloof," coming a
the time of the Voer war and typifying
the Boer character .attracted a giea'
deal vt attention. In t'lai-a Llpnmn play
of '"Julie Bon-r.on," In which husbar.d
ed wife Jointly starred, ha created the
role of Poujol, which waa credited with
being one of the most remarkable charac
ter dcllnaUona ever coin on the Amerlcar
stage. In Iwondcn, where the pluy wa.'
produced subseeiuent to its presentation
in America ,the critics disliked the play
but conceded that the character of
Poujol waa murvelously conceived ant1
Mr. Mann's Von TValden In ."The Sec
ond Kiddle" was a notable achievement.
The baron was a lovable character am'
his German dialect was delightful. Two
years ago Mr. Mann visualized Hit
character cf John Krauae, the old watch
maker In "Tho Man Who Stood Ptlll."
and last season ho mado known the mli
of aottfrled Plltteradorf In "The
Cheater.". Both of these characters were
drawn with the keen and analytical rlc.ll'
of a great artist. With the exception of
Baron Von Walden, Mr. Mann has In
recent years devoted himself largely tc
the characterisation of old men. In
"Elevating a Husband" his latest play,
which he makes known at the Brandeir
this week, he again assays the role of
young man, and his success l said to be
such. as would be expected from an actor
of his vailed experience and acknowl
Mr. Mann really made his start In the
theatrical profession's a "barnstormer."
The experience wss 1 valuable, but fre
quently painful and detrimental to the
artistic Impulse. In tho first, semi-amateur
"lroup" with which he waa associated
as a callow youth, the meagre company
presented "Camllle," and even attempted
Shakespeare. Young Mann played every
thing from Armand to Hamlet. ,
On one oocaslon the "troupe" repeated
they wish to attend. t end imany object
to ticket speculation.' The Btudebaker
theater Is one of the few In Chicago
that has tried to do away with ticket
speculation, and Is using this method to
reach out-of-town patrons.
It Is a pleasure and a privilege to herald
the coming of such an organization as
Miner's Americans, which will be the at
traction at the Krpg theater for the week
beginning with usual Sunday mstlnee.
Miner's Americans this season offer a
bigger and better entertainment than, ever
before. They offer three burlettaa In
stead ot the usual one or two, and, in
addition, an olio of good vaudeville acts
of the first water. The burlettas to be
presented here for ths first time are

the expcrlmir'cs of the real Shakespearian,
days by giving a prf ji mame In a big
barn In northern Maine, The boys were
In the hayloft and the elders were seated
on planks on tho barn flour. The play
was "Camllle." and Mr. Mann was play
ing his favorite, role of Armand. Kvery
thtng went along swimmingly (ur time.
In one of I lie most effective scenes, how
ever, a mule, which had been corralled
in a stall, under the bum floor. Rave mi
unearthly bray. The gravity of the scone
was lost, and the audience began to
snlKger. This served to atlr tu mule to
further efforts, and It brayed and kicked
against tho stall like a mud beast!
The farmer, who had conscientious
scruples agaltiat play-acting, but not
against barn rental, was not present, but
a boy was hurriedly Sent to the house tJ
get hlni. lle camo running over to the
barn. Visibly excited. A hurried .examina
tion of the mule convjnoed him that the
mule was sick. The jierformance had
been struggling alyhg, but the farmer
"You'll have to get. out of hereevery
one of you," he said, "the mule'a sick
and needs attention, and that mule Is
worth twice as much to me as you play
actors. And so t hey . vacated the barn, with
"Cumllle" stt 111 'an hour and a half shy
of her harrowing death scene. The audi
ence, however, waa more generous than
the farmer. Thy kindly permitted the
"troupe" to keep the. reclpts. '
School." A big feature with Miner's
Americana Is tho chorus a group of
twenty pretty girls who can sing and
dance as well as look striking enough to
be called a bunch of real "American
Beauties." Miss Margaret Flavin, a
stellar prima donna, lured from the legiti
mate stage by Mr. Miner, has the le-tullng
feminine roles with the organisation.; She
Is a striking beauty, accomplished In all
the stagn arts and possessed ot an inti
mate personality. Miss Flavin was last
seen here In "A Knight for a Ifty," In
whic h she was oatnred for three seasons.
Another legitimate tago favorite with
thn Americans Is ans Heed, thn diminu
tive IJIIputlan comedian. In support of
these artlKts are such well known people
as Joe Burton. MIhs Louie Rice, Fred C.
Collins, Chester Nelson, Valentino and
Bell and Felix RiiKh.

The Loudon Musical Standard had an
article In a recent Issue to Which Musi
cal America has called attention. It was.
written by Rutland Houghton and It
dealt with the redemption of music Jn
England through tho Influence of the,
masses. "They are the only people .whose
emotions are not distorted by unhealthy
conditions." He further states that he ha
fotind many examples "of deep and seV
rlotis Interest , In' mush: on the part of
artisans and others who make upiu"U
masses" In England. "Compared Vlth
these realities. Covent Garden Is a toy
shop and the musical "at-home an'after
Here endelh the. saying of-Mr. Bough
ton. Musical America then goes on to re
mark some wise and sage things. If says
"Great muslo Is not produced by the at
tempt to conform to, or 'to set, ' culture
standards. It Is produced by compelling
creative force. This torre Is generated, or
more properly Induced by a Need.
Where there Is no need to compose,
there can be no great music.
Musical America then proceeds to ask
"How does this need arise?"
And that question, while It hail been
well answered by thn editor ot that paper,
won answered by a still greater person
many years ago.
You remember those compelling lines of
Itulph Waldo Emerson: "By doing his
work, he makes the need felt whirl he
can supply. He creates the taste by w."ch
