"Blindness of Virtue"
The beautiful young daughter of an English
vicar Is brought up In Ignorance regarding the
facts of facts. She knows nothing about eu
genics or a lack of eugenics. The girl and a
youth, with whom she falls In love, are drawn
back from the proverbial abyss "In time." This
Is the theme of the "Blindness of Virtue." by
Cosmo Hamilton, well played by a company
o6 English actors at the Orpheum.
A young woman kills the leader of a band of
white slavers and is sought by the police. She
Is engaged as stenographer by a shrewd, whim
sical writer of detective yarns, who writes a,
tale about the crime committed by the girl
and brings her to confess to him. However,
h saves her, and virtue triumphs. A thrilling
detective drama, successful In New York and
revived, with excellent acting, nt the American.

Ins story of boyhood and girlhood.
SHALL A WIFE DARE
WHAT A HUSBAND DOES?
Problem of Men's Neglect and Decep
tion of Wives Theme of'ThcJtcvolt."
A Play That ''Gets Across."
A waiting wife a wife waiting late In tho
night for tho huiband to roturn who, loving,
deludes herself into believing her husband's
excuses and untruths, nnd who, caring for tho
home and a child, Is stinted by a meagre al
lowance, makes over old drosses and bears
negligence patiently. A wlfo tortured with sus
picions, harrowed with Jealousy, Btlll devoted
nnd meek nnd silent. A pathetic figure a too
common tlguro In life. Her counterpart Is to
be found In tho llttlo frame dwellings of every
town, In the drab rookeries of every hive, lllto
city apartment house.
It has remained for Edward Locke to present
this piteous human drama in such n popular
way as to express nnd bring home tho injus
tice of the double standard of morals In tho
marrlngo rclntlon In "The Revolt." which
opened nt the Adelphl Inst night. One might
say It remained, through tho vehlclo ot Mr.
Locke's piny, for Helen Wnie to present tho
heart tragedy ot too many wives.
"The Revolt" as a play has excellent qual
ities. It transplants complications and phases
of actual life to the stage. It carries Its alle
gory convincingly. It is a play that must seri
ously do good. "While it tlnows before Its
audience, In the second act, tho meretricious
elegance and luxury ot vicious living, as main
tained by self-righteous, eolf-Justlfying men.
ino J.evolt' Is clean and salutary. It is an
American play, dealing with familiar domestic
conditions. It is as effective a piny on its
theme ns wns the antiseptic, much-exploited
drama of Brleux on another.
Anna Stephens, the wife, has waited for her
husband night after night for sevrn yenrs.
There was only a honeymoon year of happiness.
John, tho husband, acted by Alphonz Ethler,
spends his evenings as many husbands do, and
whllo he tells-his wife ho works at tho offlco,
mingles In the company of a certain kind of
emancipated women. To them he gives his
money. A tribute must be paid to Miss Warn
ns an actress. Unaffected by the tricks of the
stage. Intellectual in her interpretation, her
acting has the simplicity of really great talent.
Ono Is never conscious of tho actress, you see
only the wife. Such a portrayal Is art.
Assured ot her hujband's infidelity by her
scheming, villainous, whlfiky-addlcted step
mother, who urges her to the life which, if it
costs men money, brings money to women,
Anna confronts John with evidence of his mls
dtongs In a letter received from a woman. The
long pent-up passion of years bursts forth, and
Anna rushes forth to the llfo of freedom en
Joyed by tho husband, while her prcclpltato
flight after midnight in the morning from tho
dingy flat In Brooklyn to the "swell" apart

her old school chum, on ltlvrslde drive, raises
a doubt as to its plausibility, tt is supposedly
excused by the claim of dramatic oxlgencles
Most women would wait till morning and. If
they loved their child ns prodigiously ns Anna
did, would take their child with them.
In striking contrast to the mean home of the
decent wife, the second act flaunts tho allure
and horror-of tho luxurious homo of the nban
doned woman. Beth FranUyn. ns La ftoso. Is
shockingly true to llf. we Just almost hate to
make her ncnuulntanco In public. A night, or
rather very early morning, revel tnkes place,
and Anna Stephens, radiantly clothed In A
Parisian gown of rose satin nnd spangled sil

drinks champagno, sings, smokes cigarettes,
finally bleaks down nnd weeps. Thcio is a
struggle, for the Indomitable honesty and purity
of Anna's nature recoil from tho abyss. At
the crucial hour Anna is rescued by one of the
anonymous visitors, and is about to flee when I
a telephone message Informs her of the serious i

HOW THE CASTLES
, BEGAN TO DANCE
That very delightful couple, Mr. and Mrs
Veinon Castle, hud danced the "box trot," the
"Aigentlno tango," the old-fashioned polka, as
It was never so gracefully danred by your
grandmother, and tho "maxlxe" at Keith's
yesterday afternoon. In an awed whisper, a
woman in ono of the boxes leaned to her
vls-n-vfe and asked- "Where did they come
from? How did they ever learn to do It?"
Tin: dancing of the Castles, who nre ns
charming as they arp grncoful, possesses the
delight ot nil too-fugitive things. That Is the
only criticism one might mako of their ap
pearance. It is simply too delightful for Its
"When nnd how did jou begin to dance?"
Mr. Caetle was asked, the curiosity of the
woman In the box In mind.
"I played tho part of tho barber in Lew
Fields thow, 'Ilcnrlctta,' In New York," said
Vernon Castle in tho dressing room after his
"act" was over: "A French manager who
liked tho act In which I appeared as the bar
ber asked mo to go to Paris and do an ab
breviated sketch In French. Mrs. Castlo and
I had Just been marriwl. That was about three
years ago. Wo went to Paris. Our manager
went broke. Wo had Just 130 francs $26. We
vvero desperate, t tell you. 'What'll we do?'
I said. 'Let's go to the Cafe d' Paris nnd
spend the 100 francs,' said Mrs. Castle. We
did. We had $6 left,
"There were a lot of grand dukes and other
funny people In the Cafe d' Parle. There was
dancing. We got into tho spirit of the fun.
a nd my wife nnd I got up nnd danced. We
danced tne 'Grizzly Bear.' We vvero rotten,
really. Somehow our dunce pleased some Rus
sian prince, an awfully rich fellow, and he sent
L'OX) francs over to us as a gift. I wanted to re
turn the WOu, but my wife wouldn't let me She
slipped tho money into my pocket. T'ho man
ager then came over and said he'd reserve the
table for us every night, give us our meals
and wanted us to dnnce. I told him I couldn't
do that, then he engaged us professionally.
That's how wo began. My wlfo had never
been on the stage
"A year alter that we camo to Now York
and danced nt Louis Martin's; everybody
knows tho reht of the story. I've always
danced. I danced with Lotta Faust in the
"Merry Widow." But I've improved a lot
since the Impromptu dance at tho Cafe d'Porls.
Mr. nnd Mrs. Castle are the grentest feat
ures vaudcvlllo has had for a long time. Their
dancing, indeed, too delightfully brief, swept
the house. Seconding the Castles, Ruth Royc
certainly "got" the audience with her rag
time songs. Compared to Blossom Seely. an
"attraction" last week. Miss Roye is a real
"princess of ragtime." and almost as rolglnal
and Irresistuble ns was Eva Tanguuy In the
early days of tho "I don't care" croze.
