With all health-giving wholesomeness
of the Carlsbad Spring of which it tells.
"The Spring Maid," comes to the Bran
dels Theater, Thursday December 28, as
a Viennese operetta that has spread its
powers of fascination over all of con
tinental Europe and has proved the power
enchant theeater goers this side the
'vtlantlo in exactly the same way. Heln-
rich Relnhart, . its composer, is well
known over Germany as the composer of
dozens of the mualcal playlets so gen
erously appreciated there. . His first
i opera, "Das Suesse Madel," was played
Iby the German Opera company in New
'l'ork last season and will soon be also
produced by Werba and Luescher. 'For
the prima donna role in this quaint work,
Fraulein Mlzzl Hajos, a Hungarian song
stress who created the leading part of
the saucy Princess Bosena when ' the
cpera was played In Vlanna and Berlin,
has been brought to this country. In sup-
rt of this star Werba and Luescher
lilve sent a great orchetra of thirty
ay era the largest, that has ever been
used for a light opera work; a great
ballet, and a company of nlnety-fodr
which includes such singers as George
Ieon Moore, Dorothy Maynard, Leo
Etark, Tlllie Salinger, Jack Kaffael, Louis
Miller, and with Orpha Tewes as the
Maud Campbell, who is playing the
part of "Notinie" in "School Days,"
which comes to the Brandeis theater for
New Year's week, is a Bostonian and
began ber professional' work in sacred
conceits at the Boston theater. In
"School Days" Miss Campbell will have
many opportunities to show her ability
as a singer and dancer.
An engagement of exceptional Interest
will be that of Blanche King at Boyd's
theater for four days, beginning tonight.
Mis Ring will be seen in "The Wall
Street Girl," a bright, new musical com
edy by Margaret Mayo ana Edgar rielwyn.
Hapgood Burt has' contributed the lyrics
nd Karl liuschua the music. Mr.
Iloschna is the composer of "Madame
fcherry" and "Three Twins,"' and In "The
Wall Street Girl" 'he has music which Is
sure to linger in the memory and set
the feet to tapping.
Among Mis.i Hum's great song hits are
"Deedle-Dum-Pee,", "I Want a Kegular
Man," "The Indian Hag," "I Should
Have Been Born a Boy," "Every Day:'
and "Daddy." These she will sing as
only Blanche Ring can sing them. Hairy
Uilfuil has the principal comedy role,
while other in the cast Include Clar
ence Oliver, Charles Wlnnliiger, Charles
Cotthold, Maude Knowlton, Florenco
Shirley and Cross and Josephine. Mlfej
King Is said to have the most stunning
chorus which has left Broadway this
ceason. Matinees will be given on
Christmas and Wednesday.
The Woodward players will offer an
other new comedy at the American thea
ter this week. "Sauce for the Goose,"
which was written for Grace George and
Usyed by her with great success. The
leading role Is one In which Miss Lans
wl'l find a splendid opportunity, for It j
is on the lines of Cyprlenuo la "Divor- .
V ) A f 1 I ; II
cons," which she played so charmingly.
She will wear a number of new gowns
during the week. On Christmas day a
special matinee will be given, at which
each lady in , attendance will receive a
photograph calendar of Mies Lang as a'
souvenir. ' The first performance of
"Sauce for the Goose" will be given this
afternoon, and It will run all week, with
the usual matinees and a special on Mon
day, The engagement of Robert B. Mantel
and his distinguished company, at tho

Monday night, Jan. 1 "Othello"

Wednesday night,' Jan. 3. ..."King Lear"
These plays are given in a lavish plan
ner and absolutely true in detail,
.e Orpheum for tuls week will present
the most elaborate and expensive vaude
ville act ever playew in Omaha. is "A
Romance of the Under World," a drama
written by Paul Armstrong, who is also
the author of "Alias' Jimmy va.lentlne"
and "The Deep Purple."
Next to the headline attraction In im
portance comes the sketch entitled "A
Case of Emergency," which will be pre
sented by Charles and Fannie Van.' The
terplsehorean part of the program will
be furnished by Sammy Burns and Alice
Fulton, who will offer some unique fancy

"My Good Friend." They sing two funny
songs. "Old Plaid Shawl" and "Mrs.
O' Flaherty." The five Farrell sisters, fa
mous European gymnasts, will give an
act that is filled with difficult and
dangerous stunts. Richardson's posing
dogs will offer a marked contrast to the
rest of the bill. So gracefully , and cor
rectly do the tiny creatures present their
various tableaux, that they seem to pos
sess human intelligence.
Christmas week's offering at the pop
ular Gayety theater will be the "Pass
ing Parade," exploited by Cliff Gordon
and Bobby North, whose "World of
Pleasure" gave signal satisfaction here
a couple of weeks ago. The book Is by
