Another engagement both unique and
Important 's announced for the Orpheum
this week. Through the popular medium
of vaudeville Omaha theater-goers are

Shaw, who Is America's most prominent
exponent of Ibsen and who Is most
prominent of all our women stars In
working to promote and sustain the In
tellectual drama. For years Miss Shaw
was a member of the Auguetin Daly
company. Then followed engagements )n

Joseph Jefferson and Modjeska. For
some years following these engagements.
Miss Shaw devoted herself exclusively to
Ibsen. Shaw, Stiinberg and Ginoova. and
It was during thla period of her career
that she created in America, the title
role in Shaw's much
"Mrs. Warren's Profession." Miss Shaw

11 years old and at the age of IJ he
played such pieces as "Poet and Peasant

ning at the age of U he took up the
study of piano with Prof. Slgmund

As Immense battleships strip to ' fight

masterful pictorial realization waa
pruned down to nothing but sheer vital

Of Mr. Griffith, the renowned producer
of "The Birth of a Nation" whloh opena
St the Brandels theater tonight. It la said
that he Is an authority on the beat of
the human heart, that he feels to an
atom what retards and what accelerates
the rhythm of that suseeptlble organ;
moreover, that he Is master of the means

In the theater are accomplished. '
He calculates with the uncanny In
tuition of a genius; he knows color and
sound and motion to their ultimate de
tail, and ha haa the nerve and the
vision to assemble them in a vast
Now let's look look a little farther Into the vehicles In which
Costello Is here Sunday and Monday In a feature entitled The
Man Who Couldn't Deat God." We admit thla is a queer title, bat
we're had some very flattering reports on the picture, which Is built
along the lines of a novel meto-drama, and which la far from
being tame. '
' Dennett comes Tuesdsy, Wednesday and Thursday to 'Damaged
Goods." This Is a story of the terrible consequences of vioa and
physical ruin that follow abuse of the moral law and should be seen
by thousands. During the engagement of this picture no one under
18 years of age will be admitted, and the performances will start at
12 noon. We advice your coming down in the afternoon If possible
to avoid tho large night crowds.
Ethel narrymore will be seen In a new drama entitled "Tho
Final Judgment." 'Tls one of the beat vehicles Miss Barrymore
has ever hnd and will later be made Into a drama for Miss Barry
m ore's use on the legitimate stage. This is a semi-problem play,
lavishly produced and magnificently acted.

When W. W. (Billy) Cole returned to
Omaha a few weeks ago and took charge
of the Krug theater, which he opened
thirteen years ago as the Trocadero, he
remarked to a friend. "I made many
friends here when I Had Krug park and
also with the Trocadero. and it Is my
purpose to come back with a stock com
pany at the Krug, presenting the best
dramas and eomcdlea at prices which will
pack tLe bouse. I Intend to run the house
so that ar.y child or woman itendlng un
accompanied will rel absolutely saie. I
am going to make the Krug theater the
home of permanent stock productions."
Mr. Cole has engaged the North Bros,
stock company, which has been playing
w cmauiis mi ropeaa and which or
ganisation closed an engagement there
last week. The players will be here during
the early part of the week and will re
hearse "The Great John Ganton," which
will be the opening bllL The opening has
oeea wi tor next Saturday evening. Mr.
Cole waata his Omaha friends to attend
thla opening performance and see this
strong play, which was written from
story which was run as a prise-winning
story In the Saturday Evening Post. The
story is woven around tha life nt v n
Armour, alt.vigh the name of the great
