on Mondny and Tuesday even-:
Inrs. The admirers of "I'eter
Pan" aro countleix, for most of us liave
been young, havo dreamt of subduing
redskins, kllllnic pirates and acquitted
ourselves bravely In the land of Make
Uelleve, for thero Is where tlie scene of
Unrrle's whimsy Is laid. It Is only to the
'.o-be-pltlcd man who never wns a real
boy that the play fails to appeal.
For those who are unfamiliar with the
story of "Peter Pan" i brief resume of
Its story la Klven;
Peter, tho boy who wouldn't arrow up
and who lived In the Nevcr-Never, Never
land with all tho other lost children,
came flying into tho window of a nursery
looking for his shltdow. which had been
tut off by tho sudden cloning of a win
Sow when he was listening to Mrs.
Darling telllnc a story to her throo chlU
J ran. Ho awakes Wendy, tho llttlo fitrl
of the family,-and she finds his shadow,
lewi It to him, and ho dances with glee,
tie tells Wendy all about the fairies and
tho members of the band, and they grow
to like each other very much. Tho chil
dren want to see tho Nevcr-Never, Never
land and ho teaches them to fly and off
'hey all go.
The next scene Is In this wonderland,
where Peter's band Is nwaltlng his re-
Sum. Here Wendy and tho children come
md the band builds her a house and she
promises to bo their llttlo mother and
tuck them In bed at night and tell them
itorles like Peter heard when he lost his
hadow at tho window. Then they all go
lown to Petora home lu the cave, while
ibove are to be seen the redskins, who are
Irlenda of Peter. The children after
t while think that they should return
their parents, and the redskins nre to
scort thorn across tho border, Hut the
Mrates, lod by Hook, who Is an arch
mfmy of Peter's, attack the Indians and
Irive them away, so that when the chil
Iren coma out of the cave they are cap-
lured and carried io tho pirate sloop.
Peter comes to the rescue and a combat
ensues. The pirates are thrown into the
lea. by tho valiant members of Peter's
Hook, the chief pirate, Is always pur-
lued by a crocodile' which, having eaten
trno of his arms, wants the othor one.
The band pulls down the block flag and
hauls up the colors of the land we all
love. Then the children stnrt for home
and find the window open Just as they
left H when they flew away. Their par
ents are overjoyed at their return, and
Wendy begs Peter to stay, but the old
desire to never grow up and to always
bo a boy is predominant, and then he
toes back to the houso in the tops ot
trees and Wendy romes to see him
ance a year Just to do hi housecleanlng.
The company selected for Miss Adams'
support is a well balanced one and con
tains a number of prominent people. The
production ia an elaborate one, the scene
of the cave, the pirate ship and of Peter's
house in the tree tops being particularly
effectlvo and picturesque.
Every theatergoer in the oity knows
of "The Rosary" that comes to the
Brandels theater on Thursday, Friday
and Saturday of this week.
The Rosary" tells a modest and un
assuming story of how the watchful and
protective influence of a good priest
ultimately restored the happiness ot
home that had been wrecked by the evil
plotting of one who coveted his nelsh
bors wife, and sought revenge because
bis rival had won the love ot the woman
lo whom he had paid suit In the days
when aha was free to choose between
them. In consistent action, the truth
made plain that suspicion increasing to
what seems certainty ot guilt. Is easily
engendering where even absolute Inno
cence prevail, and the story's progress
makes plausible Its culmination in what
seems Irremediable disaster.
Cecilia loftus. on of vaudeville's most
renowned artistes will be the principal
