Burchmore and Lucius Pryor
(are the local impressarlos who have un
dertaken the experiment of produclns
Igrand opera at figures that will allow
everybody a chance to get Into the Au3I
jtorlum on the afternoon and evening of
, October 17, when "The Secret ot Susanne"
wlll be sung. This Is the work on which
; the fame of Ernanl Wolf-Ferrari is
Ibullt, and has been immensely popular
since Its first presentation In 190B. It has
very simple, plot, but its development
affords ample scope for what Is unl
(versally pronounced the best work the
young composer has so far accomplished.
'(a young count smells cigarette smoke In
his home, and as he knows his wife does
'not smoke, he questions his dumb ser
vant, who denies smoking. This arouses
the jealousy of the husband, and he sets
about to trap the man who Is smoking In
his wife's boudoir. Quite a bit of
dramatic Interest Is developed from this,
'and much comedy, the end being the dis
covery that the wife does smoke, and the
servant as well. Detailed announcement
of the engagement will be made later.
"The Shepherd of th6 Hills," a drama
tization of Harold Bell Wright s novel,

Jhe, Osark mountains of Missouri. It Is
'a story of the hills and the simple life,
yet It has plenty of excitement and an
'air of mystery that will hold the auditor,
from beginning to end.
There are several characters whose
quaint humor Is a decided novelty.
Taken as a whole, the play promises U
!Prove a refreshing change from the gen
eral run of dramatic attractions this
season. Messrs. Gasklll & MacVltty, the
producers, are said to have given the
iPlay an elaborate mounting, the moun
tains of , the Ozark affording an oppor
tunity for some fine examples o the
scenic painter's art. The cast has been
selected for the authors' peculiar fitness
of each type. : ,
'The-, Cow and the Moon," the first
of (ho Co-Opcrative . Amusement com
pany's "big shows at little prices," will
'be the attraction at the Boyd theater
-for three days commencing Thursday

matinee as they open in Minneapolis tho

,it lmopssible to play here on Saturday

nounced as a laughable musical ex
travaganza. That well known composer of ex
travaganza hits, Carleton Lee Colby, ii
responsible for all of the music. During
the action the. principals and the chorus
will be heard in the following songs:
"Town Hall Tonight," a satirical affair;
a duet number, "If They Are All as Nice
as You," which Is a big hit; a new Idea
In a rag, "They All Look Alike to
Mable;" "In Seville," a Spanish number
that Is sure to appeal to the popular
fancy of the romantically inclined. Than
there Is a sufficiently foolish fusion of
tuneful tinkles tp warrant the title of
"Chlng A. Ling A Foo," and a sweetly
touching song, "Just the Same Old
Story." attests the wonderful versatility
of this young composer, while for the
sake' of the cstumers and scenic artists
comes the newest rag, "The Haughty
Hottentots." James L. McCabe of comic
opera fame is the feoture with "The Cow

and will please grown-ups as well. Stein,
Hume, and Thomas, three young men

called "The Melodious Merrymakers."
Robert and Lawrence Ward, tho boys
with the monocle, will give an amusing
Imitation of English fops. The brothers
have for three years been with the Elsie

clever gymnasts, will do many difficult
stunts, Introducing many new feats,
Reba and Ines Kaufman will offer a
number of clever capers In songs and
dances. Loekhart and Leddy will rnaks
"A Comic Attempt at Self-Destruct'on."
Their athletic tumbling Is one of the best
features of their performance.
The special Labor day matinee and
evening performances will be made un
usually attractive at the Orpheutn.
Funny dialogues, more than a score of
the latest tuneful numbers, sumptuous
scenic productions, a vaat array of beau

the salient features of Counlhan & Shan

The opening bill of the American Hip
podrome on Douglas street at Eighteenth,
formerly the American theater, will be
given this afternoon. For the Introduc
tory program, which Is to continue
throughout the week, continuously from
1 to 5 and 7 to 11 p. m., there will be of
fered features that look very enticing.
The headline position on the program
will be occupied by Adele 'McNeil, whose
only claim is to sing short songs.. Her
claim Is surely a modest one, she pre
ferring to have her audiences tell her
how entertaining she Is by their applause
rather than to tell them In advance her
self. Local Interest will be given the
program by the presence of Mr. and
Mrs. George Hlrschorn, the well known
'"within the law" and employing the In
tricacies and false standards and tech
nicalities of the law. to shield her from
arrest. She develops Ingenuity, daring
and makes the man who sent her to
prison pay for her four years of drudgery
for him and her three years In a, felon's
cell, almost breaking, his heart through
his son and heir. For "Within the Law"
Mr. Woods has engaged an adequate
cast of individual and collective excel
lence, while the extensive scenic mount
ing of the play is on scale of lavish
ness. Al Reeves' "Big Beauty 8how" comes
to the popular Gayety theater the com
ing week, beginning this afternoon. The
company Includes Andy Lewis, a comed

a fine record of successes to his credit; j Omaha couple, whe will present their
