Feminine interest centers at present
about the kiiuiis of the BiikIIsIi actress,
Mrs. Patrick r.tniphell.
Those shown In "The Second Mrs.
Tanitieray" are far anil away hand
somer than the much talked of and
written about "Manila" costumes,
which have been done to death.
Like everyone else. I thought the
M(vler-lltie satin, with the KUinea-an-inch
bodice, exquisite. The Idea of
jeweling the sleeves, as .Mrs. Camp
hell carries it out in her various crea
tions, is siiiRularly attractive. Those
of this "AlaRilu" Rown are of rare lace,
studded with small diamonds.
The Iouk velvet cloak, trimmed with
wide lace and ermine collar and cuffs.
Is one of the handsomest ever seen
here, and is worn over the blue sown.
Hut the "Tnmiueray" clothes!
To be perfectly candid, most of us
women went more to see the dresses
than to study the actress.
The play affords such a glorious op
portunity for sartorial display! Noth
ing is too rich, and the part of Paula
cannot apparently be overdressed.
In the tlrst act she wore a lovely
white silk brocade with hand-painted
pink roses over its surface, interwoven
The bodice was also of a silver mesh,
very effective and rich.
These KleaminR effects go so well
with Airs. Campbell's odd, dark hair.
Indeed, she is positively gloomy with
out them, as was the case in three acts
01 ".Mrs. Ebbsmith."
In the blue gowns I like her best, as
this shade is so well suited to her col
oring. For this reason the second "TaiHiue
my" gown, with its skirt of delicate
blue brocade and Its rare lace bodice
belted with blue, pleased me im
mensely. It Is becoming because it
lends a softness to her rather over
The light-colored dining coat, with
white hat trimmed in black, has al

the straw-colored real lace gown in

This is really a triumph of the dress
maker's art. The bodice is adorned
with graies and leaves, done beauti
fully in tinsel. The skirt has a long
train (all Airs. Campbell's trains are
very long) or panne; it is one of the
most graceful costumes in her ward
robe. I cannot say that 1 like her way of
wielding her skirts. They seem always
Hopping about her feet, and annoying
Hut perhaps this is only for effect,
and to call attention to her loiii;
limbed lissomeiiess. She asks naively,
in ".Mrs. Kbbsniith," referring to the
only gown the play affords: 'And
when do you want me to hang this on
my bones?" and then, a few minutes
later, she refers to her clothes as
"rags," recalling Kipling's "A rag, a
bone and a hank of hair; just as if we
could ever forget the line in her
I saw a black velvet confection to be
worn in "Alarianna," which was simpiy
a dream. It scintillated with lover's
knots done in brilliant jewels lia
monds, Airs. Campbell says.
There were roses on the bodice, done
in pink velvet with beautiful effect.
Kach rose, or rather petal, was out
lined in the jewels. A cae of gauze
fell from the shoulders in the back,
and there was a pink sash about the

that fastens this sash in the back. It
is of diamonds, and simply exquisite.
Airs. Campbell seems to take no end
of pride in these back belt ornaments.
Judging- from their variety and the fact
that they appear at every performance.

This only -Ebbsmith" toilet consists
of a black net overdress, with trai'ing

. . Coming to Lincoln
The statement may be made without
fear of a challenge, that no woman
within the memory of our generation
lias been able to portray suffering so
faithfully as Clara Alorris. Her mi
metic art which led her to analytical
reproductions of wasting disease have
never been approached by another art
ist. She became celebrated for her
death scenes for in the emotional char
acters she so often portrayed with
such fidelity there was usually that
end in the final act. Hut there have
always been rumors which would con
stantly recur that Clara Alorris, the
woman, and Clara Alorris, the actress,
tnjoyed quite distinct personalites:
that while the one was ngaged in de
picting misery, distress t ml wretched
ness in a manner to wring the heart
of the stoutest observer, that the oth
er was of a cheerful disposition, loved a
laugh, a joke or a prank, and could
turn a neat quip as readily as a pro
fessional humorist. Air. Thomas W.
Hroadhurst. who is managing the pres
ent tour, confidently asserts that when
the public see once more their idol of
many years, they will ! amazed at
her powers as a mirtl rovoker. Her
entertainment ranges n the grave
to the gay: now a si. now a sob.
Her many rare experiences with em
inent men and women whose histories
have become the records of their time,
a most retentive memory and a rare
power of observation have especially
fitted Clara Alorris as a raconteur. Hut
her performance will not all be remi
niscence. There will be illustrations'
of that rare genius in scenes from some
of her great successes with which her
name has always been identified. A
great actress, a graceful writer, a gift
ed story-teller. Clara Alorris bids fair

achievements of the past. Clara Morns
