At Gayety Give
A rattling good male quartet, four
fetching Irish melodies, four fancy dogs
and some other groups or attractive or
unusual features are on the new bill t
the Gayety. Not to say that Jack Con
way and the other principals and the
frisky chorus are not pleasing also. The
foregoing group of special entertainment
are mentioned merely to Indicate that
the "Liberty Girls" show ha some ele-j
ments that are different, and that they
way is aiapenstng the same droll comedy
In the unsmiling but laugh-compelling
way that made him very popular last
season, and the rest of the company I

Just to watch Conway's bit of silent com
edy work in the second act.' whlrh last
night s big crowd applauded to the limit.
Just because It was such a natural and
strikingly funny portrayal of Irish charao -
ir im uacnen creates the opposite
form the quartet that can hardly furnlh
enough of its harmony and humor to sat
isry the audience. Ktta Joerns gets many
chance to encore with her unusual vocal
accomplishment, and Kathryn Dickey
ins a aerie or Irish melodies and other
ong hits pleasingly. Jennie Rosa la a I
floaste bundle of accentuated activity,
who out more lively capers in a minute
than one would expect In an hour. The
Flying Sherwood offer a sensational
aerial performance that leave the crowd
breathless between sets.
Neil O'Brien Has
Real Minstrel Show
At the Brandeis
Those theater-goers who spurn min
strel shows on the theory that no min
strel show ever was assembled that did
not contain the same old line of Jokes
and gags that have been In constant use
for a score of years, missed a bet If
they neglected to see Nelt O'Brien at the
Brandela theater Saturday.
For Mr. O'Brien ha himself written a
kit entitled "Darktown' Brave Fight
ing the Flames." and It Is a scream from
start to finish and la notably minus
the whiskered gags dcrrlcked from Joe
Miller Joke book. Mr. O'Brien ha often
been called America's leading ' minstrel
and when he wrote the Darktown sketch
he earned another title, that of Amer
ica' leadinjr writer of minstrel skits.
Mr. O'Brien, ef course, dominates the
show. Ills Inimitable style score an
Instantaneous hit. but his many assist
ants are able, and add much to the worth
of the performance. Eddie Master, Pete
Detael, Eddie Ross, Lasses White,
Charles Strong and a oore of other
easily demonstrate that they are lead
er of minstrelsy.

Consternation! KJaculatlonI Investiga
tion! It waa during the dinner dance, at the
Omaha club Saturday nlxht, with all the
elite sitting et the tablea In the ladles'
rafe, that without warning the noise
of sudden bombardment from outside In
terrupted the gayety, and a big. heavy,
Jaased brick came right through the
window facing Twentieth street, and
landed In the middle of a table, about
which eight of the gi.eats In gala attire
were arranged. The hi'. !iad cut through
t wire screen and window pane, and splin
tered the tableware, hut fortunately did
no other damage beyond frightening sev
eral women Into near hysterics.
The police were not fled, but by the
time of their arrival the miscreant had
disappeared and no clue remained to fol-
low up. The supposition Is that some-
body In a bad humor saw the merry
J making through the window and sought
' to stop It by heaving a brick.
