AUD ALLAN is scheduled for
the Tyd theater as one of
the events of the theatrical
season soon to come. Her
agent, Mr. Hell, has been in
Omaha to arrange for her coming.
She, with her corps of dancers and a
symphony orchestra of forty pieces,
will be one of the Shubert attrac
tions offered here.
Another of the big offerings will
he the Shakespearian comedy, "The
Merry Wives of Windsor," with Tom
Wise as Falstaff. Marie Tempest in
"A Lady's Name" is listed among the
bookings, and Lou Tellegen, last seen
here as leading man with Bernhardt,
will appear in the title role of "A
King uf Nowhere." "A Pair of Silk
Stockings," one of the artistic suc
cesses of the Little theater several
seasons ago, will be presented during
the season, and the Halle t Russe,
with Nijinsky, will probably play a
, brief engagement at the Boyd.
The dates are not yet announced,
with the exception of Maud Allan,
-who is to come Thanksgiving day for
'.'.latinee and evening performance.
Popular plays and stars, such as
Blanche King, Lew Fields, William T.
Hodge. "The Blue Paradise," "Very
Good Kddie." "The W hirl of Pleas
ure," and "Kobinson Crusoe, Jr.," with
Al Jolson, will probably be seen at
the Boyd during the new season.
The second half of the week will be
given over to the high class Shubert
attractions at the Boyd, while the
first four days will go to the In
ternational circuit. From Gus Hill,
president of the corporation, this let
ter was recently received by Manager
Burgess of the Boyd theater:

The distinctive event of the opening
of the Orpheum season next 'Sunday,
August 27, will be the premier dan-,
seur of the Imperial Russian ballet.
Theodore Kosloff. supported by Vlas
ta Maslova and twelve artists from !
the Serge Diaghileff ballet. A Rus
sian orchestra, under direction of
Emil Coleman, is an important feature
of the act. The costumes and the
scenic effects are those used in the
Imperial theater, Moscow, and the
entire ballet is a spectacle of remark
able beauty.
But the Russian ballet is only one
of the features of unusual merit which
distinguishes the opening bill. The
famous vaudeville team, Bonita and
Lew Hearn, are once more together,
and will offer bits of musical comedy.
Five other admirable features of the
bill are the ragtime Xylophonist,
Libonita; Ruth Budd, the comedian
trio, Willing, Bentley and Willing, a
one-act comedy, "Cranberries," and
the two speed boys, Beeman and An
derson. The Orpheum Travel weekly will
again display this season exclusive
motion pictures of interesting and
beautiful places all over the world.
Sam Howe, the well known
comedian, will be seen at the popu
lar Gavetv theater for the week open
ing this afternoon with a large com-
?;iy of noted burlequers, singers,
dancers, travesty artists and a chorus
of feminine charm. Among the prin
pals, headed by Sam Howe himself,
will be found "Dainty" Eva Mull, Dee
Loretta, Harry Bowcn, Tony Cor
telli, Salatore Zito, Ethel Hall, St'fi
Anderson, May Le Noir, Richard
The advance announcement is made
that should the weather turn uncom
fortably hot, the Gayety s slogan for
the week will be oatless Burlesque
a very thoughtful consideration.
At the Empress this week is the
opening of the fall season and the
occasion will be celebrated by the pre
sentation of a vaudeville bill quite
above the average. The well-known
aggregation of comedians and girls.
"Gus Edward's Schooldays," a riot
of fun and laughter, is the hcadliner
of the show opening today tor four
days. Edna Dreon, a singing come
dienne of talent, appears on the same
bill, and the Trains, in a comedy
novelty musical act. Hildegarde,
Locbman and Tommy Bouncy. Oma
ha children, will present their new
act on this bill. The arc both 8 years
old and their act consists of dancing
and singing. Jommy wears full dress
clothes and high silk hat, like a regu
lar dude, and caps his costume with
cane and monocle. Ilildegrade wears
a decollete gown.
The Krug theater has been in pos
session of painters and artisans for
the past two weeks and its stock
company 13 announced to open its
social season the early part of Sep
tember. The opening play has not
been made known, yet assurances are
given "by the management that it will
meet with the approval of the thea
ter's admirers. As in the past, it will
be the purpose of Manager Cole to
elevate the standing of his theater.
bearing in mind that his patrons are
his partners. The same prices will be
continued and matinees will be given
on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
Edward E. Rose's newest play has

for four days, starting with Sunday

Fun at the Lake.
By Edith Olsen. Aged 10 Years, Hart
ington. Neb. Blue Side.
Two years ago this summer we
were visiting my aunt in Sioux City
and stayed two weeks. We were
there about a week, when we went to
a lake to spend the day. My aunt,
a friend, my two sisters and I went
one atur(iay. When we got nown
to the lake we went across in a boat
to the bath Imuse to dress for a
swim. When we were going out in
the water the bottom of my dress
got wet and I said:
"Well, my dress is wet already."
Aunt Edytb laughed and said;
"Well, why did you go in there if
not to get wet?"
We waded far into the lake, where
there was a slide. We took turns
sliding clown. At first I was afraid,
hut it soon seemed to be great sport.
My sister tell into the water face
first once. This scared her very
much, but we could not keep from
laughing at her. We were in the lake
about two hours. When the sun
went down we went back home and
said we had had a very good time.
my vote for Ruth Kibbel because her
stories were all so interesting.

Don'ts for the Horse
Be IHnd to these faithful, patient and long-suffering friends
of mankind with little else in life but hard work and whose
only comfort is food and drink.
Don't leave your horse in the sun when there is a shady
spot near-by.
Don't leave your horse standing in the atreet for hours at
a time.
Don't use the flapping blinders.
Don't lose your temper with a horse and beat him;
is helpless.
Don't run your horse up hill and down again.
Don't feed yourself until you have fed your horse.
Don't allow misfit harness to be put on your horse.
Don't jam your horse's nose into that abomination,

Don't forget to 6ponge off the horse at the end of the day.
Don't take the heart out of the horse by over-loading.

It was generally agreed that some
state subsidy or protection by tariff
should be afforded for at least ten
years. At the final session a paper
was read on "rare earths," its author
asserting that the situation was full
of promise for Great Britain's future
tnoiependence ot foreign raw mate
rials, largely used in chemical manu
facture. Prof. Louis stated that he
had just returned from an official
investigation of the resources of rare
earth in India and in his opinion
Great Britain was in a vastly supe
rior position to Germany in quantity
and raw material.
A discussion on the patent laws of
the country showed a sharp differ
ence of opinion between lawyers' and
patent agents' and inventors' point
of view, but all agreed that reforms
were needed.
