"The Round Up" It Jutt about tbs
biggest and noisiest diams that wat ever
stared for an ordinary theater. The enly
way it could be I nc retted in alt or
volume of sound would be to take It out
of doors or pat It Into a clrcua tent. It
has some very good features, though; It
is remarkable for Its tpectacular effects,
although the verities have been In some
measure sacrificed in order to provide
for the spectacle, especially In the battle
scene A gentleman from Texas, wne
sat through ths plsy hut night, said mors
powder waa burned in Ihla one scene
than was consumed during the satire time
ef the Madera rebellion along the Rio
Grande last spring. Another extremely
realistic picture is the awakening of the
oonboys on ths round up: the early morn
ing rising,, ths hastily matched breakfast,
tbs trip te the remuda en toot with saddle ;
In hand and the return, mounted on a
broncho that vigorously resented the op
eration, affords a very exact picture of
what actually lakes piece In real life on
the range.
But It is not all spectacular, and some
very good acting goes with ths show of
pictures. Rspley Holmes Is Just as
picturesque in the role of "Slim" Hoover
aa Edmund Day or Macklyn Arburklo
ever could be, and rolls bit cigarette with
hand much mora deftly than did
either. Miss Henius It very goon as
Echo Allen, and Mlts Macauley It a
charming soubrette. Mr. llsrris larks
Just a Hills of being convincing In tht
earlier momenta of the play, but gets
better aa It sore oa. And each member
of the company might oe names lor
tpertal commeadatton tor soma bit of ex
cellent acting contributed te make the
whole a good and attractive performance
The Brsndels theater last nlaht hel
more people than had aver paid ta got
within It walla before It was Uteraily
paimea, lipeteird and down, and the enjoy
ment of all was apparent from ths
unstinted applause thst fallowed not enly

ths plsyers.
Burlesque, garbed so as to wsaeniDit
Its rest character. That is "Around the
Clock," a little bit of nothingness which
beaan a two days' stsstun at the Boyd
last evening, presenting Its motley enter
tslnment lo a very falr-slsed houts. which
la many Instanoee seemed ihorouchly te
anjey the harlequin of Blllle Ritchie and
a few ef his mala supporters who were
fully aa funny aa their principal. In ear
ing that Ritchie la funny it should be
ststsd thst there are several degrees of
fun; Jutt how funny Rltchis Is esa not
be recorded here. People last evening
laughed at him sometimes-ao It Is ssid
here that he la funny.
Probably none of the audience went
te the Boyd expecting a thoroughly re
fined entertainment, so none of them
were heard to complain; most of them re
tained their seats to ths conclusion of the
performance, too, which to another bit
of evidence tending to prove that the
audience enjoyed the show. It Is fully
the equal of sny of our burlesque menus.
Indeed, the chorus reschea a higher
plane then most of thoas that come this
way. They are garbed In pretty costumes.
Ths show ttseir Is not poorly stsged.
B'.llle Ritchie is thrown Into ths role of
a "drunk." He attracts attention maluly
through tossing chain about and hurl
ing himself Into the trmt of men and
women. Ritchie's Intoxicetlon seems t,
fed lout, for at one time there wore
three "drunks" upon the stage, one of
there being a yoang society woman whe
came In smoking a clgaret. and thea
wound up by singing that delightfully
refined little song. "Ooh. La La." Let It
be remembered, though, thst "Around the
Clock" Is good burlesque.

Pat Rooney and a pretty, talented girl.

when the Woodward Stock company
opened a week of The Right of Way"
Sunday afternoon. The approval was
forthcoming. Elliott Dexter "made good."
I Mite Lotus Rebb, a charming young ae
Itresa, who made herself popular In Ju
j venllea in the Woodward company, played
la lead and triumphed. These were the
j featurea af the opening of "The Right of
Way." ...
Sir Gilbert Parker's novel Is one that
waa difficult of dramatisation in the
firat place; tn the second, the character
of Charles Steele ts one that Is extremely
difficult of satisfactory protrayal on the
stage. It Is no easy chore to make a sue
ceta of the role of a man who la so near
and yet so far from a contemptible thing.
It la comparatively easy to play a bad
man and to play a good one, a strong
ur a weak; ta play ana that la weak and
strong nt one time and bad and good,
yet with the strength and ths good
slightly dominant that la work for an
actor. Mr. Dexter is a keener virile actor.
From bis flrxt appearance the auditor
fetls a satisfying knowledge that the man
la strong. He known he will be equal to
the demands of the play. He does not
need to fear nor doubt about what the
evening will develop.
Mist Rebb takes the part of Rosalis
admirably for an actress of her youth
end one moat af whose experience has
been In roles more purely Juvenile. She
Is a thoroughly lovable. Innocent, trust
ing girl, full of faith so strong and love
so strong that they are proof agalast
every power that possibly could attack.
Of the other players John Ellis figures
most prominently. Aa Joe Portugais he
has opportunity to produce a fine piece
of character acting. He makes the rough
riverman, who murdered in righteous
wrath, was saved from the gallows by
Charley Steele, and repaid him with a
life's alaviah devotion, a thoroughly like
able fellow.
Altogether. "Ths Right uf Wsy" Is a
satisfying pity, well stsged and well
Bnrlesqae at the Krng.

the killing. It waa on a single sheet and
so even and clear were the letters formed
that the writing bad the appearance of

his guilt It Is my honest prayer to God
that be msy bring the person guilty ef
