Miss Gertrude Quinlan, as "Chiquita", the Sulu Soubrette in "Sultan of Sulu"
Miss Gertrude Quintan, who has sc ored n sensational hit In Geo.ge Ade's operatic satire, "The Sultan of Sulu,"
will be well remembered in Lincoln for htr charming characterization of Annette last year with "King Dodo."
Later Miss Quinlan was transferred from "Dodo" to create the role of Chiquita, the Sulu soubrette In George Ade's
opera. Her singing of the "Sulu Lulu Loo" song made it one of the favorite whistling numbers. Miss Quinlan has
a pure dramatic soprano voice and her light and grand opera training has given Miss Quinlan a repertoire of near
ly seventy operas. In "The Sultan of Sulu," Miss Quinlan has the role of the sultan's favorite wife, and is only
one of the scores of pretty girls in the big company.

John Drew renewed his acquaintance
with the American public at the Em
pire theatre on Thursday evening,
September 4, In "The Mummy and the
Humming Bird," under Charles Froh
The comedy had a good run in Lon
don and will doubtless duplicate its
success here. The play was written
for Lena Ashwell who expected to
duplicate her success as Mrs. Dane In
the female part, which is taken by
Margaret Dale on this side of the At
lantic. The action of the play Is laid In Lon
don and Paris. "The Mummy" In the
case is Lord Lumley, a peer, who is
so deeply engrossed In his scientific
studies that for the time being he neg
lects his young and pretty wife, "The
Humming Bird" Is Signor D'Orelll an
ItaHaa peet who turns out to be a de
cided villain. D'Orelll makes love to
Lord Lumley's wife while the noble
man Is following up some new line of
work In his laboratory. The lord's
eyes are opened to the actual meaning
of the signor's attentions by a Sicilian
organ grinder named Gulseppe whom
he befriends and later makes his valet.
Gulseppe tells Lord Lumley how a fel
low countryman ruined his wife and
broke up his home and explains that
he has come to London to seek out the
villain and be avenged of him. Lord
Lumley discovers that D'Orelll is the
man Gulseppe is after. He surprises
D'Orelll in the latter's bachelor cham
bers when Lady Lumley is there and
when the young wife in shame flees to
Paris the scientist compels the signor
to accompany him thither, where he is
confronted with the man whose home
he ruined and where after -a complete
revelation of D'Orelli's rascality he Is
left to the vengeance of Gulseppe, while
the reconciliation of the scientist and
his foolish wife is promptly effected.
"Mrs. Jack," an original farce comedy
by Grace Livingston Furniss, was pro
duced under the management of Man
ager H. B. Harris, atf Wallack's
theatre, on Tuesday event g, Septem
ber 2, before a large andarltical aud
ience. The leading role that of a
pretty western widow, was taken by
Miss Alice Fisher, who as "Mrs. Jack"
commenced her career as a star.
Miss Fisher scored a distinct per
sonal success although some parts of
the play are apparently In need of
strengthening. Her impersonation of
an open-hearted, breezy widow from
the west, suddenly possessed of ten
millions, much to the chagrin of her
husband's ultra-fashionable relatives,
among whom she lands, and who try
to make things as 'miserable as pos
sible for her, Is excellent. The story
of "Mrs. Jack," as Interpreted with all
the charm possible by Miss Fisher, is
of her coming to New York to take
possession of the estate of which her
husband had died possessed, and from
whom she had been separated for years
after a few months of marital in
felicity. The plot is laid in the period
between her succession to the estate
and the time when a codicil to the will
is to be read. An Insolent sister-in-law
bestows upon her a due measure
of jealous hatred, until self-interest in
terferes, and a brother-in-law only
melts because he sees the chance of
a profitable match for himself, but the
reading of the codicil finally deals out
rewards and punishments a la carte.
