Kathcrlnc Kmmet, who plays (lah
riellc in tlif episode of "Tlio 'Affairs' of
Anatol" at the Little Theutie. was un
known to Now York uudlcnccs until
she came to Mr. Ames's playhouse. Hut
ahe. has hud experience as anybody who
admires the linlnh of her acting must
admit. Sho In a native of California
and acted first after she hnd been grad
uated from the belaud Stanford Uni
versity In Bernard Shaw's "A Man of
Destiny." when It was acted by the
students of the dramatic .school she was
attending, Later she nppeared In "The
Qrcatest of Thrhe," a sketch uttrlbutcrt
to Charles Knnyon and later expanded to
three acts under the. tltlo of "Kindling."
ifter her engagement In vaudeville,
which lasted for a short time, she nctcd
with Blanche Bates, hater she came to
New York and appeared with Guy Bairn
Post in "The Hrldge," and with Mrs.
ttsko In "Mrs. Bumstnd-Lelgh" and
Kathryn Kidder In "A Woman of Im
pulse." Last year she acted with Lnw
fance D'Orsay In a revival of "The Karl
of Pawtuokct." Then followed a short
engagement with "The Indiscretion of
Truth." Probably most valuable In the
variety and scope of the experience
VAKh Miss Kmrnett acquired came
17001 her weeks In the various stock
companies, which extended over u geo
graphical area comprehensive enough
aa to include Los Angeles and Worces
ter, Mass. Miss Kminot has acted a role
which she spoke almost entirely In
French. That accomplishment she ac
quired in college, and later in France
when she studied singing under Des-champs-Jchln.
The Follies of 1912, which are still
the success of the Moulin llougc, have
been somewhat reconstructed since the
first night and the present manner of
their progress Is certainly more brisk
than the firm sequence made possible.
The second act now opens with the cir
cus scene. This Is followed by the epi
sodes on the Boardwalk at Atlantic
City and tho spectacle closes with the
-called "Palace of Heauty." In which
he greatest splendors of the Zlegfcld
beauty chorus are revealed, it is diffi
cult In such a collection jif woiulcis lo
find special points for praise. It Is.
however, true, that none of the loveli
ness shown In this scene Is moie appro
priate to the character represented than
the exponent of tho Duchess of Devon
shire. It would be impossible to llnd a
more aristocratic Incarnation of Gains
borough's painting and the delicately
chiseled beauty of the young woman
It is not possible In, the lack of a pro
gramme at hand to praise her by name
does not In the least suffer fiom the
disadvantage of wearing clothes. The ma
jority of the beauties about her are not
encumborod with draperies unless they
happen to be transparent, nut she takes
tho attention of the spectators as none
of Iter rivals and holds It.
Gladys Hulelte, who plays Beth In
"Little Women," was tho TulH of "The
Bluo Bird" when Maeterlinck's play was
acted at tho New Theatre and her ns
aertlve masculinity was ono of the de
lights of that poetic drama. Miss Hit
f lette in thoso days did not In the least
seem like a girl Imitating a boy and
rather overdoing It In her struggle to lie
too manly. It was only the poetry of
happy and self-nssertlve youth that she
suggested. Her task In the successful
dramatization of the book now at the
' Playhouso In quite different. She ap
' pears as frail, gentle livth, who Mowers
only to droop on the stalk and then
fade away altogether. Very tenderly
and wistfully she ucts the part, very
human and self-sacrificing Is her de
notement of Its amiable and girlish
characteristics. But there Is rare suc
cess In the fidelity with which all of
Miss Alcott's characters havo been
placed before their enthusiastic ad
mirers, who are crowding the Play
house. "The Daughter of Heaven" has been
received with delight by the public
slnco there Is an opportunity to hear
Loti's drama ut popular prices.
"Fanny'H First Play" is settled at tho
Comedy Theatre for porno months to
George M. Cohan In the George M.
-fn)inn Theatre uetH the m-Inctnnl fiort
In i ''ffsoadway Junes," written by George
M., Cohan, und Includes In his company
iho parents of George M. Cohan. No
body waB ever known to resent the pre
ponderatlon of .George, M. Cohan In
these or similar pioceedlngs, and the
more the public rnn get of him the more
tna public seems pleased.
Tho vicissitudes' of French public life
are Illustrated effectively by John

' dm attracted fame by singing "My
Little Canoe" in "The School Girl" In
' London. When Charles Krohman
j bought I'aul rotter's musical play F.dna
.May decided to annex that number for
j herself, so Miss Burke stopped In Lon
don. Then she began to act with
Charles iiawtrey and later came over
to bo the leading woman with John
Drew. Now that at the Lyceum Theatre
she has the opportunity as the heroine
of "The 'Mind the Paint' Girl" to dance,
sing and do some fine uctlng her vir
tuosity Is firmly established.
"Milestones" exerts Its quiet charm on
that large part of the public which goes
to seo the English play at the Liberty
Theatre. The English nrtors are In the
main well suited tn their roles, and the
charms of the women in tho cast are
displayed In the varied costumes which
feminine taste suggested for such di
verse periods as 1160, 1S85 and 1912.
Tho highest point of Frances Starr's
achievement In "Tho Case of Becky,"
which Is so popular nt the Bclasco The
atre, come when the evil influence
which dominates tho life of Dorothy
mukes Itself felt. The audience has
previously seen Dorothy when she Is iter
sweet and Innocent self and when she
Is the mlschlevtous Becky. In this scene
In the second act Miss Starr, who has
been seen as Dorothy, denotes tho trans
formation from one character to the
other. Mere the audience sees as It
were Jckyll turn into jrfc before its
eyes. With wonderful virtuosity Miss
Starr Indicates the gradual domination
of the evil spirit which has seised the
young girl. Her face, which has been
trustful and tender, suddenly assumes
an expression of cunning and malevo
lence, while her manner Indicates the
preponderating evil motives at work.
Mlsa Starr's success In carrying through
this difficult problem Is, one of the high
est achievements of her remarkable
"The Governor's Lady" was pro
duced on a warm September night. Tho
realism of the last act made for that
reason h strong appeal to the nudlence.
In the restaurant scene the snow and
Ice have frosted the glass windows and
the spectators sitting In the orchestra
stalls had the vicarious satisfaction of
string the appearance of freezing co'.d,
even If thpy could not feel It. It Is
by such wonderfully realistic touches
ill, ii David Belnsco holds the public,
lit 'ii the simple furniture of the little
home to which the wife of the Governor
retires after their separation Is not
any truer to life, nlthouih I' Is not
with an element of rnnuro that the
playwright Is here dealing. He h.is se
lected the decorations of a room which
shall represent a small home In lh
middle West wlin there was the first
tipward progress, but no great weal'.h.
"A Scrape o' the Pen" Is attracting
Scotch residents of New York, ulthoush
there are many who have no trace ol
Scotch origin to be found In the audi
ences nt Weber's Theatre.
"Itiady Money" would not still be at
the Maxlnn Elliott Theatre were It not
based on a popular theme. There Is.
nothing that an audience so loves in
the lght of somebody making monev I
I rapidly, whether tho means be fair ur
1 "Within the Law," at the Eltlmu ,
Theatre, makes the same appeal to Its
audiences. There a young and beaut!-1
tttl girl who has been made the victim
of an unjust iccusatlon, tries to get all
she cun out of society and yet keep
within Its law. She succeeds and there-1
fore the audience delights In her. ,
W. A. BRADY EXPANDS.
Tin Mntiaaer Tell Some More Facta
Alio a I the Wny Play Are Made.
Regarding his testimony In the action
of Edith Ellis Furnlss, against the Shu
berts and ftlilu Johnson Young tn re
cover a share of the royalties paid for
"The Lottery Man," William A. Brady
stood his ground yesterday.
"Stealing sccne. or whole plays," he
declared to a Si'.v reporter, "Is utmost
as old ns the dm ma Itself, Everybody!
knows that Shakespeare helped himself
right and left to the works of other
writers. The same statement Is true In i
greater or less measure of the majority
of successful dramatists of the past and!
present. Dion Bouclcault was a great J
hand at annexing scenes, plays, char-,
nc torn and everything else that seemed'
useful nt the moment. The newspapers
In his day accused him of pilfering al-1
most every time he produced a play as
his own. Sometimes he did not even
take pains to conceal the source of what
he had carried off.
"Vlctorlen Sardou, whose craftsman
hhlp was extraordinary In Its perfec
tion, mude no bones about taking pos
session of thomcH, churacters und stories
originated by writers other than him
self. Ho frequently was denounced as
n plru e, but the great number of sue-
ceases which he reeled oft year after
year proved that when ho appropriated
an Idea or a plot and worked It over he
must have Improved Its quality, for the
Sardou plays were vastly more popular
and effective than the ones he so fre
quently was charged with stealing.
"Augustln Daly very often wap ac
cused of simply putting his own name
as author upon plays which he had
taken bodily from foreign or domestic
sources. As a fact they were better
plays when he was through revamping
them. The French poet Rostand was
accused In a court action of having
stolen 'Cyrano de Bergerac.' entire
scenes at a time, from a play called 'The
Merchant Prince of Cornvlllc,' written
and copyrighted by a Chlcugo man
named Gross. Mr. Gross proved his
case to the satisfaction of the 'court,
which rendered a decision In his favor,
so that 'Cyrano' cannot be played with
out his consent. But nobody would
have much difficulty In judging which
version of the drama was best.
"Even now scarcely a play Is pro
duced without being cither claimed out
right as the work of some other su
Ihor than the one announced or criti
cised aa 'old stuff.' Take the case of
'The Point of View,' for example, which
I presented last Friday at a special
matlnre and will place In Daly's The
atre on Monday. It carried an entirely
new treatment of the girl who has
been led astray. In this story she re
jected the proffered atonement of mar
riage because It came from a sense of
duty on the man's part, wholly with
out love, Some eviewers thought this
situation preposterous and others over
looked it entirely, one gentleman find
ing that the drama was roplrd after
'Cnmllle.' I cannot detect the resem
blance, but I have no doubt of tun
sincerity of the writer who did. It
only goes to shov how the same thing
looks through different eyes.
"Yes, and It shows ono thing more
, that anything really new on the stage
Is apt not to get a chance. It is the
teolothlng of 'he old matter that Ii
the surest fire; and It is a great deal
easier to make over than to Invent,
You get no credit for originality any
how. When Mr. Bclasco produces a
play It Is a sort of fashion for some
body or other to rle up and claim It
as his own. What happens then? Tip'
claimant gets pages of space for his
charge that Mr. Belasco stole his play,
and nil that Mr, BhIusco gets Is an
opportunity to express his Indignation
through some such costly experiment
as producing the other fellow's manu
script alongside his own. Probably
even that will not convince the ma
jority. "There was one point where my testi
mony In court was misquoted, mnklng
me appear unfair to Margaret Mavo,
authoress of 'Hnby Mine.' I did jay
this piece was expanded, or piultb.d,
after It had been accepted, so that In
stead nf taking up only about an hnur
und a half It HUM out tho whole eve
ning. But everybody did not tako a
hand at the work. It was done ex
eluslvely by Miss; Mayo and myself,
My own part of It was not entirety
original and I Insist that It was per
fectly legitimate for me to make a new
use nf material that had done duly
bofore In some other s':npe. it not only
Is a case of 'everybody's doln' It,' but
doing what Is absolutely proper, not
only through custom based on pre
cedent, but because If it were not done
there would be very very few success

"The .Merry Countess" Is the oldest of
comic operas now on view, slnco Its
score dates from the days of "Dlo Fled

It In popularity, however, and the Ca
sino Is crowded nightly.
It took "The Count of Luxembourg"
two years to reach this country and It
probably benefitted by the delay. There
uro several numbers Included in the
scoro ns sung at the New Amsterdam
Theatre which were composed for other
works of Franz Lchar.
The spectacles at the Winter Garden
rarely remain the same two weeks.
However successful they may bo the
managers bellove that such productions
need constant change In order to keep
them fresh. Irma Bordont Is the latest
