tion of the horror of the
war that la wasting the. best

the strife In the delights of a good fare
comedy. And that Is what the Bran'dcls
theater offers for the-openkig of its sea
son,' which, happens to be set for tonight.
The ple;e that la to be offered has been
much written about, and In seemingly
xtravaganoe of praise by those review
era who have watched Ha progress In
Mew York. Jt is now taking the road in
force, a veritable battalion of companUs
to play It having been organized, and
Omaha Is fortunate to the degree that
It la on of the first of American cities
outside of -.New York to have the priv
ilege of laughing at the fun provided
by Mr. Pepls's farce. The week, will be
a fairly busy one at the Brandels, for
other plays are coming along with some
thing of a headlong speed, and the first
1 days of the winter term at this house
: will be well filled. At the Orpheum and
the Gayety, business has been very good
so far, and the managers are much en
couraged. Arnold Bennett says in his "Confession
'of an Author" that he turned to play
writing because ha "wanted money In
heaps," but those who know hie work
best .declare that he writes plays Just be
cause he can't help himself. According
to "Who's Who." Arnold Bennett (his
full name la Enoch Arnold Bennett) was
born In England ln 1867, Uvea In France
and "has no recreations." But "Who's
Who" Is mistaken, Arnold Bennett' rec
reation Is writing; also it is his trade and
his profession. Ho left the law to be
come editor of the periodical "Woman."
but there wasn't enough writing to do
there, so he gave up his salary and
started in to "Just write." . He wrote
books and essaya and reviews and plays,
and if bs didn't Jump, Into' fame at once
It wasn't long before the reading public
began to take notice of this man who
was making the "Five Towns" famous.
There is no tale o( the starving author
to tell about Arnold Bennett He writes
to live and Uvea to write. He learned to
make his characters real, and It la this
fidelity of characterisation that lends so
much to the charm of "Milestones."
"I have always prided myself on never
having hobbles." said statuesque Bernlce
j Buck, who will appear here In "A Pair
of Fixes." "And', as for beauty, I think
people allow their thoughts to dwell upon
It entirely too much. I believe that a
person always makes the best of an ap-
pearance, and for that reason I have
etudied out the vaue of gowns so that I
can tell In a moment Just what suits me.

and Just what I could never attempt In
the" way of dress. I am wAdly, extrava
gantly 'vain about my gowns, but I have
always found It to pay In the end, be
cause I never have a thing on hand that
I am not passionately fond of, and there
fore I wear my clothes until they are al
most ready to fall off.
"I have found out a very Important de
tail In my study of drees, one that will
make a gown count In every sense of the
word. Always aim at the picturesque,

Ther0 re ome few women ln th w"-id
who can stand the bltarre In their out-
ins, come lew who can actually afford
to be eccentric and not suffer ln conse
quence. 1 But the great majority of
women look better In the softer, more
undecided fashions, and unless a woman
can be aosured by someone whose taste
can be relied upon that her style Is such
that she can wander off the beaten path
to any marked extent, Jt would be better
for her not to try anything too different."
"Milestones" will be seen at the Bran-
dels for three days, beginning tonight,
with epecial matlness tomorrow. Labor
day. "Milestones" Is ty Arnold Bennett,
the author of "Old Wives' Tales," "Clay-
hanger," "Hilda Leneways" and other
widely read novels and essays, and Ed
ward Knoblauch, the distinguished Amer
ican dramatist who gave "Kismet" to the
stage. The production on tour will be
the lame ln every detail as In New York
and London, where the remarkable play
reached Its 600th performance at the Roy
alty theater. "Milestones" Is a play of
exceptional Interest. The three scenes
all take place In one room, the first In
1880, the second in 1XR5 and the third In
1917, and as the play progresses one wit
nesses the marked changes In dress, fur
niture, decorations, as well as sentiments
and manners. Several of the characters,
members of the Rhead and Sibley fami
lies, are carried along by the same play
era through youth, maturity and finally
old age. In each act, however. Is the
spirit of youth, with Its young people. Its
love making and Its progressive Idea.
Buch a play as "Milestones" does not
come along very often and It can be ac
counted as one of the genuinely worth
while dramatic treats of the season.
On Wednesday and Thursday nights, Sep
tember and 10. if. H. Frazee's "A Pair
of Sixes," which New York has unani
mously declared to be "the funniest farce
In the world," will be presented at the
Brandels theater. The book is by Edward
IPepIe, who has contributed already such
successes as "The Trlnee Chap" and "The
The chief motive of "A Pslr of Fixes"
concerns the Ingenious scheme of a young
woman who, figuratively, shows how a
queen of hearts Is better than a pair of
sixes. All of which develops after two
young men, partners ln business, unable
to agree aj to their respective Importance
to the firm, decide to separate com
mercially. The lawyer for the firm Is
called in and he finds the condition ag
gravated to the point where no amicable
agreement cap be made, so he proposes
a hand of show-down poker. The winner
shall be known as the master and operate
the business for one year, unmolested by
the other, who Is, however, to be credited
with his share of the profits.
The loser is to be known as the "man"
and must serve the "master" In the
capacity of servant for one yesr. They
agree on the scheme and Its details, the
lawyer tuts It In legal form and when
the hand Is dealt a pair of sixes proves

to be high. From this premise the com
plications develop new and laughable
situations for the ensuing two acta, In
which the wife of one partner and the
fiance of the other take a hand ln the
affair, which, eventually, becomes more
hopelessly involved by the office stenog
rapher. As an added feature to the
coterie of seemingly endless complica
tions, the English housemaid becomes In
nocently entagled In an affair with the
"servant" partner, and the family finally
evolves Into a divorce mill. To unravel
these complicated mixtures, the clever
young woman of the plot surprises the
lawyer at his own game and re-establishes
the young men In their office. In
the local presentation will appear Herbert
Corthell, Oscar Ftgman, Orlando Daly,
JscK Raffael, Minna Gombel, Bernlce
Buck, Josle Intropldl and Eleanor Fair
banks. At the Brandels theater Saturday and
Sunday, September 12 and 13, local
theatergoers will have an opportunity to
ree Edgar Belwyn'a brilliant farce.
"Nearly Married," the play that ran elx
months at the Gayety theater, New York,
under the direction of Cohan and Harris,
with a company headed by John Webster
snd an excellent supporting cast "Nearly
Married" tells a story that is thoroughly
enjoyable and replete with startling sur
prises, which follow each other with
amazing rapidity. It records the adven
tures of a young husband and wife who
Imagine that they have come to the part.
Ing of the ways. Trouble-making rela
tives and tale-bearing friends have pre
vailed upon an overcredtilous girl-wife
ot seek a divorce and the husband had
agreed, and the young wife Is awaiting
the final decree that will restore her
main name. The evening that It Is to
be handed down the couple meet unex
pectedly In a Fifth avenue hotel, where
a reconciliation takes place. Without In
forming the party of friends, with whom
sho was going to dine, the wife accepts
her husband's suggestion thatithey steal
away for a post-nuptial honeymoon.
Five minutes after they have departed
for parts unknown the lawyer arrive
with the court document, legally dividing
the couple. Bedlam breaks loose among
Uie relatives and friends, who, upon fall
ing to find the truanta, organise search
ing parties to ward off the Impending de
tour from the paths of strict social and
legal etiquette, and It Is In this chase
and the scenes enacted when the pair are
finally located in an inn on the Hudson
that furnishes the fun In thai farce. The
humor la healthy, hearty, human. Be

Special Interest of a local sort attaches
to the bill at the Orpheum for the com

sociated with him in this thriller of a
travesty are two other Omaha people

Miss Spencer was formerly Identified with

who writes upside down and backward, or
nny other way, and uses one hand as well
as the other. He Is said to be a phe

of the bill Is an Omaha act. A number
of years ago the Eugene trio, that do?s1

work In this city. Its offering is styled i
