Margaret Anglin's adventures with
mislaid husbands, fictitious sweet
hearts and the like have been Oc-
i tended by one in "Billeted," which is
as good fun as any she has ever lived
, through to the pleasure of those who
. preicr to see ner iu lumcuy. j.u
she has to combat a village shrew, a
group of tradesmen and a bcotch
" banker, fence with a serious minded
bachelor colonel and an equally well
I meanine clergyman, and for two acts
; stand off a vagrant but repentant
husband, who turns up as tne
colonel's adjutant just as the hostess
in lier desperation has announced his
death. The material is scanty
enough,' but its treatment is light and
dextrous, and when the curtain does
. go down on an ending all can foresee,
the feeling s the , evening has not
been spent in vain. The war is kept
in . the background, serving only to
support the process by which the
loving hearts were reunited.
Miss Anglin finds in Betty Tara
dine's perplexities opportunity for the
employment of her real talent for
comedy. From her encounter with
the vicar's vinegary sister in the open
ing act until she finally surrenders
to her husband in the last, she is on
the defensive, guarding herself from
importunate creditors on the one side
and high-minded suitors on the other,
staving off disaster, until the climax
is brought by. the heartless lighting
company' cutting off her supply of
electricity. She presents a piquant
mixture of sanity and frivolity, one of
her answers to the, inquisitive female
pest serving as the keynote. When
accused, of. sleeping under the same
roof with a bachelor colonel, she an
swers, "Yes, but not under the same
Langdon Bruce makes the sober
minded Coloned Preedy a joy; not a
' prig, nor the usual form of stage En
glishman, but a regular human being,
anxious to do the right thing and save
others, even at the sacrifice of him
self. And Fred Eric is immense in
the role of the husband who reaches
' the manor house just in time to hear
his own death announced by his wife.
He has sobered down, but not enough
to prevent his getting a little fun out
of the serious situation. Phyllis Bir-
kett, who is new to us, is capital as
the disingenuous companion, is bent
on catching a soldier for herself and
whose quest ends in conquest. Mr.
Kemmet's Scotchman would delight
Sir James Matthew Barrie, and Mr.
Rushton'a vicar and Miss Williams'
shrew are; exceedingly well drawn.
The play was given a cordial greet
ing last night at the Brandeis. Miss
Anglin assisted in presenting the Red
Cross cause, by reciting after the sec
ond act, "On the Fields of Flanders,"
a short poem by Lieutenant MacRea
of the Canadian forces. A collection
was taken up. Engagement lasts out
the week-end, with a matinee on Sat-

Ornheum For busiaess purposes the' ex-
tension at the season for an extra week
over at the Orpheum was epportune. The
cdol weather a proving an incentive for
seeing the last vaudeville bill of ths sea
son at the ' Orpheum. The program em
braces the principle components of modern
. vaudeville In pleasing Quantities. There are
pretty young girls, "Vanity Fair of 1911,"
being most attractively endowed In this
respect as well as In the beautiful scenli;
investiture and attractive wardrobe of Its
company. . The show embraces both Instru

of dance and comedy aplenty, the laugh
making failing chiefly to 'The Country

Lennle In their skit called "On the Boule

Japanese -artists, perform many foot jug
gling stunts and contortion feats at the

Strand In filming the latest Paramount
picture, "The Thins; Ws Love," starring
Wallace Held. Director Lou Tellegen, him
self a famous actor, encountered many dif
ficulties. One of the most serious was ob
taining permission to use one of the large
munition factories of -Bridgeport, Conn., for
"atmosphere" for a aumber of the scenes.
This had to be done oa Sunday as the great
est precautions have tto be observed about
allowing strangers to enter the plants and
it was not thought wise to allow the em

of Iris Lee, a sweet country maiden who

church choir, she rushes Into localities un

play tells a sweet story.

Empey lacks the small graces which are
popularly supposed to make up the yjhere

better star for this play could hardly have
been chosen. He Is fighting from the start
to the finish and earnestness is what the
play demands. When he leads a charge,
