TO MOTHERS AND FATHERS:
Tradition says that experience is the champion school
, teacher of the world, yet how many people ever profit by the . "
experience of others? Have you, fathers and mothers, ever
given your children the benefit of your experience in life?
, Conimenclng Thursday, Nov. 2, for three nights, a play will
be presented in Omaha which should interest the citrzens of
this community. There are tens of thousands of fathers and .
mothers in this city who should send their children, their sons
and daughters, all ignorant of the .snares and pitfalls of life,
to see thia play. , .
This play, "Experience," la the Eternal, Naver-Dying rtory '
-of Youth, His Early Struggles, His Ventures into the Great
World to Seek Fame and Fortune, His Trials and Temptations,
His Triumph Over Evil and Wickedness through the Everlast-'
ing Influence of a Woman's Love; just the sort of Experience
that YOUR boy may be about to Endure.
"Experience", teaches a .great moral lesson. It has been
endorsed by clergymen of all denominations wherever pre
. tented. It has a wonderful effect upon the audience, because -it
points out to every-man, woman and child the evils of a life
of Pleasure upon the Primrose Path, and brings home to every
heart the old, old story that the Straight and Narrow Path
lone is the Road to Happiness.
The play Is presented in ten scenes by a company of
elarbtv-two neome. anftr comes here direct after phenomenal
engagements of nine months in New York, seven months in
Chicago and five months in Boston. It opens at the Boyd thea
ter Thursday, November 2, for a three-day engagement There .
. Will be a bargain matinee Saturday. I want to call your special
attention to -the remarkable scale of prices I have arranged
with William Elliott, Ray Comstock and Morris Gest, the pro
ducers of "Experience," the Most Wonderful Play in America:
Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, 60c to $2.00; while for
the bargain matinee Saturday, the best seats will be only 11.60.

son. The story, however, is told in
words by living actors, the company
direct from its own playhouse at San
Gabriel, where the play has had a re
markable run of 969 performances.
The actors live and move, for the
Mission Play is not a picture drama.
Its people were bom, many of ahem,
in the old Mission town of San Ga
briel, where the playiad its birth.
There are twenty-two real Indians
with the company. The Indian
dancers are real Indians. The Span
ish dancers are descended from the
best blood of old Spain. And each
actor has been fitted into his part has
almost grown! into. it.
The first scene of "The Mission
Play" is laid on the snores of the
Bay of San Diego, the "Harbor- of
the Sun," in 1769. and portrays the
great difficulties that beset the path
of the Franciscan fathers and kc
Spanish expedition to establish the
white man's Christianity and civiliza
tion ori the western shores of Ameri
ca. A great conflict arises between
Father Junipero and the people, who
threaten to take him away by force.
The climax to this act is the answer
to the prayer of the one great soul
that alone had faith in God. The
second act presents a vivid picture of
life as it was lived in the-goldcn age
of California. The scene is laid at
the Mission of San Carlos de Carmel,
near Monterey. It is in this act that
Lthe colorful pageant of the Indian
arts ana cratts is' shown, also the
great "Fiesta Scene" with its por
trayals of the follf songs and dances
of the Spanish California of a cen
tury ago. i'The third act tells the
story of ruin and portraying the result
that tollowed upon the confiscation
of the missions when the Indiansand
tne Franciscan lathers were driven
Fiske O'Hara tomes to the Bran-
deis theater for four days, beginning
Sunday, Uctober if), with matinee
Wednesday. Mr. O'Hara has com
posed five new songs, which he will
sing during the action of the play.
The cast includes Arthur Vinton, J.
P. Sullivan, William T. Sheehan, J. E.
Miller, Helen Vallely, Bess Sankey
Lisle Leigh and Lou Ripley.

The great question in every wom
an's life is, "Which one shalf I
marry?" Is it wise to marry for
money or for love? These questions
form the basis for a remarkable play
entitled "Which One Sall I Marry?"
and written by Ralph T. Kettering,
wmcn will De given at the iioyd the
ater for four nights only, with mati
nees on Sunday, Tuesday and
Wednesday, commencing this afternoon.
The play deals .with a young girl
who as a stenographer is beloved by
her employer, a xery rich man, and
by the foreman of the shop, who is
a poor man. She discovers herself at
the crossroads of life, tries to escape
and finds herself lost in the Gray
Forest of Doubt. Her father and
mother are desirous that she marry
money, as it will benefit them also.
She prays that she may see her life
with both men, that she may make
her choice. BeTiold. she finds her
self at the gates of the rich man's
mansion. Her life in the land of
money is one, of sham and .hypocrisy,
whither life in the realms of reality
with the poor man, she finds deep
privation, domesticity and sordidness
out also love. As she tinallv makes
her choice she finds herself back in
the old home with her mother and
all ends happily: The company in
cludes Marguerite Henry, Marie Kin
zie, Dollie Day, Ainsworth Arnold, E.
H. Horner. Jidgar Murrav. Charles
Richards. Arthur Harris and several
others. Eleven beautiful scenes are
used in the production.
The first of th comedies with
music on the new Internatiqpal rir
cuit will be at the Boyd next Sunday.
This uproariously farce comedy, "My
Aunt From Utah," features Kate Eli
nore, America's funniest of character
comedienes. Some of the songs in
troduced are "I'll Go Out With Your
Wife If You'll Stay Home With
Mine" "Tonight's the Night." "Some
where a Voice is Calling," "Virginia,"
"IrelaoeT Must Be Heaven," and, oth

Manager Burgess of the Boyd thea
ter says: The announcement I am
"now making I consider the most im
portant that I have made to the peo
ple ot this city and vicinity since 1
nave had charge of the Boyd here.
By arrangements with William
Elliott, F. Ray Comstock and Morris
Gest I have been so fortunate as tM
secure an engagement in this city of
Experience,' called by the-.critics the
most wonderful play in America.
Experience' comes here with a very
high-class organization, as the New
York company, with a cast of eighty
two notable 'players, ill be seen in
this city. The ladies of this company
have attracted much attention and
their beauty is said to have given the
stage a new standard of radiant girl
hood ; ;.'
"Iii ten brilliant and spectacular
scenes 'Experience tells of the ad-
tions he meets when he goes out intqf
the big world inV search of fame ana
fortune. MrVHobart ha made these
temptations . to , be represented by
beautiful girls, and the characters can
be called by such names as Youth,
Wealth, Beauty, Fashion, Tassion,
Intoxication, .Excitement, Crime,
Makeshift, Kabit, Blueblood, Sport,
Ambition, Love, Hope and so on for
the various vices arid virtues.
"While the characters are called by
these allegorical names, 'Experience'
is a piay of today, and a vital, flesh
and blood drama. I believe 'Expedi
ence' the biggest theatrical produc.
Hon that has been ; here in years."
