N A NEW dress of French gray,
green, gold and white, with
soft velvet carpets and silken
curtains and polished brass
trimmings, the ,Krug theater
will open Sunday, August 30, to a new
policy that of the Pantnges Circuit of
Vaudeville Road Shows. Tho arrangement
for tho booking of tho Pantages road
shows were made by Charles A. Franke,
manager of tho Knit,' theater, last week
on a trip east. The theater Is now In the
hands ot workmen who aro following
plans which will result In tho transfor
mation of the well-known playhouse.
Many novelties patterned after the most
successful vaudeville houses In the east
will bo Introduced at tho Krug.
Tho Pantages theaters are located -In
Detroit, Chicago, Fargo, Winnipeg,- Ed
monton, Calgary, Spokane, Seattle, Van
couver, Tacoma, Portland, Victoria, Sac
ramento, San Francisco, Oakland, I.oa
Angeles, San Diego, Denver, Kansas City
and New Orleans, and iyiw Omaha will be
an added link in this chain. As tho

Miss Lang will again offer a comedy
new to Omaha, and one In which her
friends will find great delight, when she
begins her fourth week of a limited en
gagement at tho Brandeis theater this
evening. "Our Wives," Joint production
of Miss Bertha Krotft and Frank Man
dell, was hailed by New York and Chi
cago critics last season as being th
brightest of the comedy offerings, and
was a great success in both cities. It
takes an often used situation and de
velops it In 'an entirely novel manner,
with the most surprising ot results. Four
chums, a librettist, a stockbroker, and
artist and a dentist, havo spent their va
cations together, have played poker to-
, . MISS L. OIUNCHr.
As Lygia in "Quo Vadis," Coming to
gether, vowed eternal celibacy, and aro
very happy and glad that they aro not
tied up with women. Then all get mar
ried, but the librettist: ho never will, and
so when ha enters on the Job ot collabo
ration with a young woman composer, it
Is' with tho distinct and definite under
standing that there Is to be no man and
woman nonsense about it. Just a sexlces
machine to turn out operas. Six months
later tho newlyweds como home from
separate honeymoons, and nrrlvo at thn
apartment of the librettist to have, a re
union dinner. Each couple corned sepa
rately, and as each arrives a new cause
for friction Is found, and vory soon three
lively feuds aro engendered; then the
women folks discover that the bachelor
librettist lias had a woman In his apart
ment, and a fourth and still greater feud
Is born. Out of It all comes tho ruin of
the sexless machine and while the mak
ing of the operas goes ahead swimmingly,
It Is on a man and woman basis. The
comedy Is natural, clever, clean and
never ending; tho characters are human,
and the action of the play Is llko a
chapter from real life. Miss Lang will
havo the rolo of the young woman com
poser, Mr. Ritchie will be tho librettist,
and tho others In tho company will bo
well cast for good parts. The first per
formance will be on Sunday evening. The
bill runs all week, with matinees on
Wednesday and Saturday.
George Klelne's production of the pho
todrama "Quo Vadis." adapted from
Henry Blenk'ewicz'o famous romance,
will be revealed in Omaha for the first
time at the Boyd for a week's engage
ment, commencing Sunday matinee,
August 10, with matinees every day.
"Quo Vadis" was produced at an enor
mous expense. Thousands of players
wero used In the big scenes and the
principal roles wero played by tho lead
ing dramatic talent of Italy. Slen
klowlcz's enthralling tale Is reproduced
In this photodrama with amazing fldel
Ity and all the erlsodeB of Interest In
tho book are plctorlallzed In detail.
Nearly 10,000 feet of film aro required to
present the story. It is divided Into nlno
reols nnd they in turn art divided Into
ucts, Tho first three reels comprise tho
first act. tho second threo complete the
second act and tho remaining reels form
the concluding act. Eight minutes In
termlsslon clapaes between oach act and

posed and arranged for this production.
Tho entertainment lasts from two hours
and a quarter to two hours nnd a half.

with Helen Gardner In tho title rolo

passionate queen, sho lias achieved the
greatest triumph ot her career. BIx full

Girls Working in
Drug Stores Will
Protest New Law
Tho large army of cashiers and sales
ladies that aro at present employed In
tho drug stores of Omaha have risen l(
protest against what they proclaim the
gross Injustice done them by the nine
hour labor law and the law against
female labor after 10 o'clock at night.
Tho girls have been competing against
n.en and have been getting salaries that
compared favorably with the salaries ot
men, but with the new law It will be
Impossible to compete with the men. The
girls have been working from 7 In tlit
morning until C In the evening. They
have also been taking their turn on the
right shift. Under the law the employers
would be compelled to grant privileges to
the girls, and to this the men would ob
ject, which would mean the eventual dis
charge ot the girls.
Many of the girls have been In tho
drug business for many yea 's and are
familiar with no other lino of work. As
a result they will only be able to secure
new positions that will pay ubout half
what they are getting now, which, they
say, practically mans that they will bo
unable to make living wages.
At present those who are affected by
tho new law Intend to prepare a petition
and prwtent it to the legislature. The
ItItlou will demand an explanation fiom
the lawmakers, and alo demand (hat
repartition be made Immediately. The
girls' statenint will point out conditions
xa they exlt and illustrate the Incon
gruity of the female labor law and the
vice suggestions made by the numo legislature.
