Willard Mack, who promlaes to domi
nate tho New York stage later In the
season when his three other play are
ready for performance, came forward
somewhat unpretentiously at Maxlne El
liott's Theatre last night. Blanche Ring
was seen there In tlila author's "Broad
way and Buttermilk," which was due a
vrek ago. but succumbed to the heat.
When Miss Illng acted drat In what the
programme last night called a comedy
there was no music In It Purists might
till say that the play is without music,
but there was undeniably singing by
Ults Ring, who la so closely associated
In the public mind with her counlet
that the experim-nt of separating her
irom tnem was pruuauiy round to be
a mistake. But It was In Its combina
tion of country and city life that the
piece made Its strongest appeal to the
Miss Bins; Is at Air York Mllllaer.
It was to the star that the play looked
tor Its Hrondway elements, while the
fcuttermllk was presumably typified by
the populace of the little country town
In which Miss Illng, a milliner from
New York, was spending her vacation.
Thero was enough In the life of th
Maine village to test her knowledge of
the world, nnd there were later the dlN
Acuities of her own as well as of other
r.ear.3 to seme. Kor Mr. Mack o ar.
ranged that his heroine met In this re
mote snot her old lover. Then, of course.
there must lie aonga and scenes before
they are put on the former emotional
bails. There were to assist Mlsa Ring
almost sinsera numerous enough to form
a small chorus.
The scheme of Mr. Mack's play was
not in tne least deranged by the synco
psted Interpolation. It bore no such
c'ort relation to life that a song or a
dance could destroy the Illusion. In
deed "Broadway and Buttermilk" seems
rather fearful to contemplate taken seri
ously and without the merciful Interven
tion of ragtime here and there. Mr.
Mark still writes actors' playa. They
alaas sacrifice ethics and probability
for th theatric effect. Dramas of this
kind, especially when their Intent Is
om'.". are not going to suffer from any
further Indifference to probability.
Ken- Play Hood Katertalnaaeat.
Fo In lt present form "Broadway and
r.uttf rnilll:." with the aid of Blanche
lllns's rrelstlble humor and her nat
uralness ii Its delivery to the public,
tniko most agreeable entertainment.
Something of tho actress's former un
flagging gayety was missing at. moments
Ut nlRht. There was. however, enough
of It to delight her admirers, and as a
'!!" milliner from New York she had
tl.e best noaslblc opportunities to reveal
the complete sophistication her style.,
51ie Is always a welcome visitor 10 tne
Sew York stage. It was agreeable,
moreover, to aee her under conditions
appropriate to her position.
Mr Mack's play is altogether conven
tional in fiction, abounds In speeches
which are generally bright, while some
times others come far from hitting the
mark. In the character of the village
hoy acting as n "property man" In the
local "op'ry house" he has Invented an
emuilng type, although 'he playa on this
theme somewhat too persistently. The
bucolic figures from the fiddling barber
to the village fashion plate are entertain
Helen lxiwell. who can be occasionally
rathetlc in a sincere fashion as well as
auaintlf ronilc. reealed all her good
riualltle as the boarding house keeper'
in the lllage. V. I Carleton. wno nas
r.ot been seen for several years. Is still
handsome and youthful. All the char
acters were well played, which was not
an unimportant element In the flrat night
success of Miss Ring and her play.

COWBOYS WILL TRY
TO EARN CAR FARES
Agree to Repeat Stunts I'ntil
Sunday to Raise 817,000
Several hundred of tho cow boys nnd
girls who appeared last week at the
Sheepshead Bay Speedway In 'The
Stampede" have arranged to repeat their
Wild West numbers every afternoon nnd
evening until Saturday in the hope of
raising enough money to pay their ex
penses back home. '
When the show closed last Saturday
the management owed the performers
114.000, which they had earned In prises.
Vm 1 1 tit at In t-kfi lit i tniitiot' itunil til 1
Westerners considerable embarrassment.
Although the performers were given
three meals a .lay. some of them aw no
chance of getting home until n meeting
Was held yesterday afternoon.
At this gathering Harry S. Harkness.
president of the Sheepshead Bay Cor
poration, was present. After the meet
ing It was announced that half of the
$34,000 would be paid over to the West- I
erners. This S17.000, In the shape of a
certified cheek, was ready In the city
last night. It was said, and will lie
divided up among the 'company to-day.
This windfall helped them out to some
extent, but still more must be raised
Tlie Sheepshead Bay Corporation has
turned Its property over to the riders
for the rest of the week, nnd ."00 of
them, along with the Indiana who ap
peared in the show last week, will re
pest their atunts. All the m; ..y taken
In at the gate will be apportioned among
the rider. If they raise another 117.000
there will be enough to take the entire
troupe back to their homes. Many ar
rived here with only a dollar or two In
The second edition of the Stampede
will consist of bucking horse acts, bull
dogging, relay races, trick riding, lariat
throwing and roping steers.
