Lrfing l-s know4i and lovafl Jier.-". She has
not yet outst;f.cit her WelooineT nor Is it
at all likely that she will. Her various
excursions to other scenes of activity
usually end in her return to Omaha, not
hecauso sho has not prospered elsewhere,
for she has, but because she, too, fiv.ls
the Inspiration of that indefinable some
thing that is called "sympathy," which
reaches out and holds her and her audi
ences closer than any other bond that
could be forged. Omaha people know
her, and know that she Is Riving them
each time the best that Is in her, and elio
knows that they believe it, and for that
reason she works all the harder to make
her efforts worthy the trrent friendship
that has been bestowed upon her. Jt Is
more than belnc a uood actress to be so
Indubitably a popular actress; It means
toniewhero the "heart Interest" Is
iiK. Th- applause and the flowers
and all the (. congratulations that went
over the footlights and back onto the
stage last night were from friends in the
truest sense, and these friends know that
in return they will get the very best that
an experienced actress of established
ability can give them.
And over at the American next Satur
day night Omaha will be called upon to
welcome another young actress. Miss
Mabel Allen, who cornea at the head of
the Woodward Stock company, to begin
a winter season of activity. Miss Allen
will come as a stranger, but she will find
the. heart of Omaha Is big and warm, and
that as she merits so will she be given
proof of friendship nnd personal Interest.
Hie conies well commended as to per
sonality and ability, and with a promise
that sho will not disappoint the expecta
tions of any. In the company supporting
Miss Allen are a number of well known
actors. James Hoylo Is to be stage di
rector, and tho company is composed of
Frank Conway, Harry Hoyne, Kdward
Hayes, Jpan Thomas, leorge Phelps,
I'ierre Vatkin, Charles Koyal, Thomas
KUinton, Phil Carlhbeck, Jack Carrett,
Fred C.rant, Mabel Allen. Minor Watson,
Mabel Reed. Natalie Warfleld, May Wat

popular and genial, is to be the business
manager for the company, and Harry
Tallman will be treaurer. "Ready Money."

What do you suppose wuubl happi n
If Frank Zehrung becarto mayor of
Omaha as well as niabaser of our lei-J-ing
theater? Would he close up .lie
Hrandeis on Sunday nights, and endoaor
to closo the other house .' His view."
on this question us expressed in I.lpco'n
might vary from his viov.s as ap'.lied
to Omaha, but this Is how the Lincoln
Journal of last Friday quotes him on the
subject of the funtlHy nlMht theater.
Kver since the manager of the Oliver
theuter was elected mayor of Lincoln,
an occasional prediction has lieen made
by somebody that the city government
would sooner or later be brought
around to the Idea of permitting Vie
opening of the theaters on Sunday.
When Mayor .dining said the other
dav that he saw nothing wrong In per
mitting ball to be played at the M street
park on Sunday it was again suggested
that this was mert-ly the opening n.lge
to the Sunday theater. Mayor Zrbt'ung
said yesterday that "first, last and all
the time" he opposed Sunday theaters in
Lincoln and hotted that his position
would be so well established that no
body would attempt to create the Im
pression that he was seeking Sunduy
ball in order to secure an extension of
his own business.
"I am opposed to opening my theater
on .Sunday," he said, "for three rea
sons. First, I am satisfied that the peo
ple of Lincoln do not want Sunday the
aters. Second, personally, I don't want
to work more than six days a week.
When Sunday comes I prefer to do some
thing else than spend my time ..around
thA theater. Third, my Investigations
show mo that in towns the size of Lin
coln no more money is taken in in seven
davs than In six. For financial reasons
as well as personal reasons and In defer
ence to what I am sur is the sentiment
of the community, I am unalterably op
posed to changing the present arrange
ment." "It is true," Mayor Zehrung con
tinued, "that the company in which I
ntn Interested does operate a few Sun
day theaters. In every case we Inherited
a Sunday condition anil did not create
it. Omuha, as most of your readers
know, has been a Sunday town for forty
years. When I secured a half interest
in the F.randeis theater. I did not feel
like Imposing my personal views on my
partner and lijxin the community and
let the old arrangement Hand. In To
peka and Wichita we have no Sunday
theaters neiuuse, like Lincoln, those are
not Sunday towns. Uasehall appeals to

Tuesday, The play was written by
Eleanor Gates. Walter Prichard Katun
In a New York letter told the story of
the play very icturewpicly :
" 'The Poor Little Hlch Olrl' Is Gwen
dolyn. She lies In a preat, elegant house
witli an elevator, butlers, footmen, a
nurse, a govt-rness, a Uerman teacher,
a French teacher, dancing teacher, a
music teacher. Vet she has a doleful
time of It. Her mother In too busy trylni?
to get into society to Bee her daughter.
Her father Is too busy making money
for mother to fict into society with. The
child never walks he must ride. In the
auto. She never plays with other chil
dren. "Her one brlrrlit memory is Umt of a
week ill the country with Johnny Hlake,
a farmer's boy, when sue went barefoot
and paddled in the mud. In the first,
act we learn all this, and we see gov
erness elyly contriving to pet an even
ing off, and nurse terrifying the child
with tales of kidnapers to keep from
walking with her, and finally that she,
too, may pit the evening off, givlni; her
a dose of sleeping medicine a cure-lets
"Mother and father are In the dining
room at one of their society dinners.
The child is left alono on tho stago us
the dose begins to work. We eeo her fall.
The stage darkens and we hear her
scream. Then Ihe lights come on anil
f he Is a barefoot child, running and dan
cing with Joy by a brook In tho woods.
The act ends) with this simple but ef
fective BUgsustlon of her delirium.
"Act II Is in threo scenes, and they are
all representative of her dreum. All the
real life characters of Act I, however,
appear In It, but under strnnne disguises,
suggested to the child by things the had
heard said about them. Her father Is j
dressed in imper money and Is harnessed
to a machine. He duinpt money in and
turns the crank and ducks and dru'kea
emerge. They am Gwendolyn's numerous
j teachers. Nurstt appears Willi two faces.
I The governess is like a snake, 'a snake
in the grass.' Her mother goe around
with a society bee bussing loudly In her
bonnet. The teddy bear Is life eize. The
kindly doctor, whoso hobby Is flesh air,
ia In riding breeches.
"All the figures that hover around the
child's bed ure converted, and the audi
ence ia madu to undcrUuid i-Jite clearly
