kT ISN'T stylish, of course, to
have such a tremendous fam
ily, and the fact that they
are all girls Is enough to make
any woman throw up hor
hands in denrecatlon. Think
of muktc and mending the dresses
for flUj' glrlst And ribbons to be
tied the gowns to be buttoned up
the o&ckt And the tears to be dried
and hurts to be healed, and tho would-be
sweethearts to be shooed away or en
couraged, as the case may deserve! It
Is certainly a Uoosovcltlan task, but there
is one woman In tho United States who
has had the experience, and who liked
the Job. She Is Mrs. Mabello Glllman.
apd she Is tho wardrobo mistress and
"mother" of tho fifty girls who comprise
the chorus of "Tho Quaker Girl." In
tho three acts of this operetta thero ore
two changes of costume for each of the
fifty girls in each act-six different
dresses for fifty girls 300 costumes in
all to bo packed and unpacked, checked
out. and taken back again as each change
Is made; mended up, pressed, and kept
ready for instant use. A dozen feminine
Hercules might rebel against such a state
of affairs, but Mrs. Olllman Is perfect
mistress of the situation. She carries
her. sewing machine with her from town
tO' town when the company tours the
country, and there Is never the slight
eat' confusion as the lightning changes
are made. But, aside, from this stupend
ous task of taking care of tho wardrobe,
Mrs. Qtllman Is really a mother to the
fifty girls In her charge, in other ways.
Manyi-o the girls' are In "their early
'teens, ranging from fourteen to seven
teen, and have been placed In her car
by their real mothers, and she Is per
sonally responsible for them, keeping
them Under her watchful eye In hotels'
and on board trains, as well as In the
theater and on the stage. She has
troubles of her own, too. In sheltering
her brood, for the company is so largo
that In many towns tho hotel accommo
dations are inadequate, and it Is almost
Impossible to house the fifty under on
roof-tree. But In spite of hor troubles
Mrs. Glllman would not chang6 her posi
tion, for It haa Its own compensations.
If only In the love and appreciation of
The story of "The Quaker Girl," which
Henry B. Harris sends to the Brandels
for four nights, beginning with tonight,
wl'tll a matinee on "Wednesday afternoon,
is built around the experience of a
Quaker girl In Paris, where she goes
after being cast off by her own people.
An exiled Bonapartlst princess Is at
tracted by the girl's beauty and helps her
to secure a position as a model In
Madame Blum's dressmaking salon In
Paris. There she learns the art of wear
ing beautiful gowns that Increase one'a
natural loveliness, and when she meets
Tony Chuto (Victor Morloy), he estab
lishes himself as her Instructor In the
arts of dancing and love-making. In the
dressmaking salon In the second act thero
Is a gorgeous dress display, which Is as
Kood as a trip to Paris, for the advance
Ideas It gives of current and coming
styles In feminine attire, In the last act,
also, thero are many beautiful gowns, for
the scene depicts a fancy ball and the
spectacle Is almost beyond description.
The aray of beautiful womon dancing In
those lovely costumes and Jewels Is a
sight seldom offered on any stage, and Is
one of the great features of the produc
tion. During the riotous merriment of
the grand ball, two English sisters give
ono of the dances for which they are
famous In London, and which are seen in
this country for the first time In this
production. They are the younger sisters
of the Florence Wilson, who recently
married an English noblemnn, and they
are every bit as dainty and charming
as their older and now titled sister. Tli
music of tho piece is simple and melodic,
and the lyrics are of the catchy sort that
sets tbo whole town whistling and hunt
ing after tho first performance. The
groat waltr sorig, "Come to the Ball,"
which has become so popular all over
London, Paris and New York, where the
play has had record-breaking runs. Is one
of the big hits of this comedy. There
no twenty new songs In the piece, and
eaoh one Is a valued and necessary part
of tho -whole. The play is conceded on
all hands to be the most stupendous pro
duction of Its kind n America.
Charles Frohman Is to present Maude
Auanw at the Brandels theater, March
31 and April 1, lit J. M. Barrle's fairy play
"Peter Pan." "Peter Pan" was first pro
duced In London eight years ago and
meh year since 'then It has been re
vived at Christmas time and atwayB with
Increased suecers. During the last holi
day season the fair' Play was given In
London, Berlin and New York and It
promises to never grow old or lose its
popularity. Miss Adams was first seen
In thp work In Washington In October.
11X6. and her success In It as the boy
who wouldn't grow up has become a
matter of theatrical history areat as
tdt hi-rn the sucr css of Urn play abroad,
t has known Etui greatir eurcegg Jn
Miss Adams' keeping In this country.
For a long time there was an Insistent
demand that Miss Adams revive Bar
rle's Immortal fantasy and It Is In
answer to this demand that the actress
Is at present making her transcontinen
tal tour In the work. As Is known, "Peter
Pan," Is a fairy story constructed with"
great skill by one that knows all about
the stage, about children and about
grown-ups. It has been said thut It
one has never been a child, nover
dreamed of fairies, never chased red
skins In his Imagination or killed a
pirate while hiding under the sheets, he
will not appreciate "Peter Pan." But if
one has been a real child with1 a healthy
Imagination, he will Just revel In this
play that deals with tho spirit of a
boy, who always wanted to remain young,
Tho work calls for a large cast and
elaborate production, both of which have
been carefully given to It.
At the Boyd theater this week Miss
Lang and her company will give their

attention to the production of "Seven
Sisters," the Hungarian farce comedy,
produced In America by Daniel Froh
man at the Lyceum theater. New York,
and later at Power's tlieater, Chicago
"Seven Bisters'' Is from the pen of
Ferencz Hcrczegh. The best known of
tho Hungarian" dramatists. The story Is
based on Jhe efforts of , e, widowed
mother to marry off her daughters In
regular order, It being the ciiBtom of
the country to seo that the eldest Is
married first, tho others In the mean
time being held In the background,
time belnu hold In tho background,
marriageable age, but tho most attrac
tive one, tho fourth, has been sent to (u
convent. In act one Is shown tho home
of the sisters, the eldest being prettily
attired and ready for tho matrimonial
market. Tho others, though equally at
tractive, are compelled to wear short
dresses and their hair In braids, and
are made to appear too young for
suitors. The fourth sister, Mlcl, returns
home unexpectedly, having been dis
missed from the convent for a madcap
prank. She Is dressed In a modish gown
as befits her real age. The mother learns
that a young man has paid her faro
home, and feeling the dlsgraco of her
dlsmlraal and ' apprehension for her
presence ut home, compels her to clinngc
her dress for that of a more youthful
age. In course of time the young man,
Lieutenant Horkey, a wealthy count,
comes to the widow's homo and Is amazed
at seeing Mlcl In 'such childish attire.
He learns from her the peculiar condi
tions of the family and makes a bargain
with her that for threo kisses he will
marry off her three older sisters. She
promises to pay the reward on the
morning of tho third slstor'8 wedding.
From this moment on tho complications
begin and their scheme Is developed with
much hilarity through- three acts, Tho
fourth act shows tho entire happiness
of tho whole family.
Miss Lang's company will present two j
new faces at tho matinee this nfternoon. ,
Mr. John Maurice Sullivan has lust Joined
to play tho "heavy" roles, and Miss Jane ,
Kvans will be the second woman. Both ,
are actors of experience and well known i
hero from former visits. Mr. Sullivan I
was last here with the "White GUtcr'
company at the Brandels last fall.
At tho Orpheum this week, Mclntyre
and Heath will be the headllners. It Is
probable that they will give three
sketches this week "Waiting at the
Church," "The Man from Montana" and
"The Georgia Minstrels."- Little Billy,
the smallest performer on the stage,
will offer a skit consisting of dancing
and' Blnginff. This little fellow is 19 years
of age, although as small In stature as
a child. Hp Is perfectly developed men
tally, however, and haa received a good
education. Jere Grady, Frank! Carpen
ter and company will present their new
est comedy entitled "The Butterfly."
The story of the sketch deals with the
attachment of Murphy's son for an act
ress called "Butterfly," and the scene is
laid In her dressing room at the theater.
