Even melodrama can reform. It has
lono It splendidly In a good many pretty1
bad cases since "Within the Law" and
It looks as If It Intended to keep tho
pledge on most occasions. But "Sinners,"
which came to the Adelphl last night. Is
a llttlo wobbly In Its resolution. It
doesn't pull any sliootln' Irons , or tie
heroines on tho railroad track But for
all Its rlso In the social scale, tho drnrriaf
of Owen Davis still smells of tho study
larnn under whoso eliding beams "Bertha,
tho Beautiful Cloak Model," and Other
Davlslah plays took sentimental shnpe.
Of course, peoplo aren't so onc-sldod
as they used to bo. Not oven villains.
That's Progress. Such onetime sinks of
inqulty as "mistresses" nnd their men
"develop human qualities. Occasionally
thoy try to savo some poor child from
Primrose Alley with tho words, "Sho
happens to bo straight That's all." Hero
ines aren't quite so utterly heroic. They
occasionally embrace the cocktail with
gladness after tho usual period of six.
weeks In -which a lass from tho country
finds It impossible to get employment In
the great city. Young men who "lovo
the opon spaces" In the nocklos and Times
Square aro developing qualms about ns
ulstlng at tho toboggan launching.
But mothers, back in Great Falls, still
get threatening sicknesses at tho proper
momenta to drag heroines back out of
tho Jaws of Nineveh. Towns nro still
foul: tho country still fal.-. And sancti
monious country lovers still turn out Just
tho samo narrow-minded villains as of
Now, no one wants to deny that It Is
better o take our villainy nnd heroism In
mixed doses. No one can object to get
ting a llttlo sophisticated "Broadway"
humor Into tho problem. No one minds
glvlngtho'sawmlll nnd the railroad track
a rest. But, If melodrama Is going to
reform o few rungs. It Isn't at nil unfair
to 'ask whether wo really want "prob
lems"1 Instead Of murder, sin and heroines,
If they aro going- to bo handled Just as
sentimentally and with just as llttlo
knowledge; of bitter-sweet reality ns when

ened person. Gray heroes nnd grny vil
lains nro better than tho whtto and black
variety; but do wo care to And ourselves
taking" seriously oven from an emotional
anglenil tho rild tommyrOtten senti
mentality and sloppy thinking?
If wo do, we like "Sinners." And, In
tho other case, we get ourselves accused
of taking things seriously that even a
high-brow 'ought to dodge.
In New Tork "Sinners" was acted by
.Robert Edoson. Charles Illchmnn, Emma
Dqnn, Allco Brady, Florenco Nash, four
others nnd Frances McLeod. In Phila

The "Great Eltinge"
Has Big Wardrobe
Fqmalo Impersonators aro billed usually
as the Great This or tho Great That
by a convention of tho trndo or art or
profession or whatever It Is they practice,
Just as all acrobats of a certain degree
of audacity nro billed as Dnredovll Dick
or Tom. Thus tho Great Shaw, the Groat
Hall and other Valkyries In the Valhalla
of female Impersonation.
Tim, too, the Great Eltinge, ns ho
modestly falls to bill himself. By nil
tokens ho is tho greatest of them all,
nnd ho proved Ills supremacy last night
nt tho Forrest In "Cousin Lucy," a now
comedy with music In thrcn acts; book
by Chnrlcs Klein; music by Jerome Kern
and Ted Ward; staged by Ilobcrt Milton;
lyrics by Ed. Gtossmlth.
Popularity which summons a large
audience, half feminine, both of tho
Innocent and tho sophisticated, ample
physical endowment that permits allur
ing suggestion of lingerie or frnnk
anatomical exposition of a sort that Is
fnmlllar at the opera and hence, pre
sumably. In good taste on tho stage; a
faculty for walking almost llko a woman,
even when In trousers, nnd nn ability to
make his peculiarly hothouse type of
entertainment less offensive than it might
easily become In less adroit handling
these are tho outward traits which mark
what Is called a Julian Eltinge show.
This analysis docs not need to go Into
ethics or psychopathy, but essentially
(It seems to one writer) tho typo of
entertainment Is unwholesome as well
as (again bo It understood, to one writer)
borcsome on account of Its underlying
Implications nnd Its constant reliance on
words, and acts "a deux cntents." On
tho other hand, there U vietuniii- nnn
of the ginger or paprika advertised ns
putting "pep" in tho average revue":
there Is never lewdness and seldom sug
gostlveness. a great tieal more "pep" nnd maybo a
dash of nllsplco and a pinch of mustard
might very well reason "Couiln Lucy."
Its three nets have very little laughter
In them, either of lines or situation, ex
cept, of course, the Incongruities conse
quent on tho "big situation." nn nthlotlc
young man disguised in the skirts of a.
mouiste. let probably tho absence of
plot and humor is advised: why should
tho "framo" for Mr. Eltinge be more
elaborate than the living pictures of cloak
models which Mr. Eltinge presents.
"Cousin Lucy" Is no such ornate, nurc
ato frame; It Is n very plain framo In
deed. But the Great Elttngo Is greatly
otherwise. Ho is more than a Illy of
tho field, unless It bo one of those now
rare and gorgeous specimens of lllium
nuratum maculatum. Liko these. It may
bo said of him that ho tolls not, neither
does he spin; nlso he nets not, neither
docs ho sing. But ho Is arrnyed in radi
ant raiment. In one gown ho was a Illy
of the valley. In another a pink pond
Illy; In yet another a tiger Illy, and doubt
less a book on botany would dlscovor
iloral counterparts for the other dozen
frocks, gowns, robes nnd wraps he wore.
As a fashion show tho piece fascinated,
for the rather homely looking .Uorus
compensated for lack of looks with fre
quent changes of wonderful costumes.
Thero is, of course, absolutely no Illu
sion In M". Eltlngo's entertainment; but
the mar -e -ns Doctor Johnson said of
women preaching or dogs walking a wire
Is not that he does his stunt convinc
ingly, but that ho Is able to do It at
all. Whiu e does he docs very Well,
but so blended have become tho elements
of his personation that when he Is a
girl i 's apparent that It Is only a male
In masquerade, and when he Is a ,man in
his tqte one feels a senso of femininity
In pose, posture and gesture.
Of his present company mention Is due
the delightful butler of Dallas AVelford,
famous as "Mr. Hopklnson": tho loud
spoken and outspoken adventuress of
Harriet Burt, a genuine characterization,
and the too-stout devotee of the modes of
Mrs. Stuart Hobson. W. It. M.
"A Fool" at the Walnut Again
It takes no very expert cast to get the
best out of Porter Emerson Browne's
melodrama, "A Fool There Was," which
returned to the Walnut once more last
night. And so the competent players now
assembled can get hardly their due. But
they can be satisfied at least with tho
knowledge that the public, which likes
Mr, Browne's play about the vampire, will
go on liking it almost as many seasons
as "Ben-Hur" endured.
It appeals very directly to a certain type
of playgoer who likes his drama "hot i'
the mouth" and who doesn't question
some of the things Mr, Browne observes
or take them too seriously either. The
ruin of the prosperous man by his "light
o' love" and her rnaddening pursuit of
him are things that no audience outside
the very sophisticated are going to cavil
at. It's Just plain enjoyment for a good
many seasons' audiences.
"Natural Law" at Knickerbocker
'The Natural Law" has proved so pop
ular at the Knickerbocker that the resi
dent players are continuing this attrac
tion for another week. Last night the
actors gave a splendid performance, hav
ing U19 advantage of all last week's pro
duction by way of extra rehearsal. ;
Imagine a lqcomotlvo racing through
a forest of flames; picture Immense trees
toppling over here and there; add to
this the clanging- bell whose mute appeal
is like a call of despair echoing oyer a
desert; crowning all U a rising red
moon. Its very color typifying; sympathy
with the ruin upc-n whjch It gazea this
is the finale of "The Forest Fire" which
blazed a trail to undoubted success last
night at Keith's. It's melodrama, to be
sure, but it's the good, healthy kind
that makes the blood tingle and awakens
enthusiasm. The apptause and curtain
calls which greeted Langdon McCorinlck'a
offering last night proved that the people
want to be thrilled. True, it'a a very
plain story which hearkens back some
what to other days, but it la of gripping
Interest. It serves to show the extremes
which a conscienceless man will resort
to In order to make a trusting brother

Two Philadelphia acts, both unusually
clever, deservedly carry off tho honors
this week at tho Globo. One of them Is
Dottt Claire, with her Petticoat Minstrels,
or tho Nino Minstrel Maids, all of whom
nro Phlladelphlans. But their net last
night got its npplauso from its merits,
nnd not becauso the actresses wero "na
tives." Al White's "Kldland," tho other Phila
delphia offering, was one of tho clovercst
Juvenllo sketches that has been nt the
Globo this season. White has no rival for
digging; up young actors and welding them
together until their work Is Just ns pol
ished as tho older favorites. Other acts
on the bill wero "Tho Junglo Man," Green,
McHcnry and Dcnn, Eduards Brothers,
Jack and Annlo Bowcn and Edmund
"Wlllant," tho mnn who grows, proved
It last night at the Nixon by growing to
various sizes at will. His quick growth
seemed natural, too, and ho allowed spec
tators to examine him In order that they
might be coninccd. 'that thero was no
elevating appaiatus concealed about him.
Other attractive nets included the
sketch "To Iteno nnd Heturir," Fok and
Mayo, In witty talk nnd snappy Bongs;
Wood, Melville and Phillips, with n num
ber of lilting melodies, the Gordon High
landers in Scotch songs nnd dnnces, nnd
tho Bollmonts In thrilling acrobatic
Thero wero a number of pleasant sur
prises In tho pictures.
Ono was inclined to forget the chilly
ntmosphero outside nt the Cross Keys
last night while witnessing the tricks
of tho Diving Beauties. They disported
themselves In a tank which was placed
amid a plctuiesque woodland scene.
In addition to being accomplished shim
mers, tho fair divers proved themselves
to bo clover acrobats and received ubund-
ant applause for their efforts.
Other acts which contributed to tho
success of the bill were Currnn and Mack,
in "The Italian und the Boss"; Walter
Jones and Company, In an interesting
sketch, Delmore and Lee, who performed
thrilling feats on revolving ladders; Jar
row, the magician, nnd Ollvo Briscoe, a

ropolitan Opera House on Sunday after
noon, January 23. As before, -admission
will be by ticket only. Huch tickets may
bo obtained from tho Uve.vino I,edoeh
business olllce, 6th and Chestnut streets,
after 8 n. in. tomorrow, if tho holders
of reserved scats do not occupy such
seats beforo tho close of tho second
number on the program, these seats will
be avnllblo for" thoso who hold general
A special feature of this concert will
be tho playing of Allno van Barentzen,
pianist. Miss van llarentzen, who is one
of the youngest concert pianists playing
in this country this, season, Is not un
known to America, having appeared here
a, few years ngo ns a child prodigy: Al
though sho had en enormous success at
that time, tho Gerry Society refused to
let her play in concert because she was
under 14 years of age. She then returned
to Europe, where she had extraordinary
success. Her recent recital In New York
and her appearances at the Metropolitan
Opera House have won ner a very definite
position among the great artists -of the
day. She will play the Hungarian Fan
tasy of Liszt.
Tho symphony on the program Is the
one by Dvorak culled "From tho New
World," This symphony was played on
Friday afternoon and Saturday evening
last at the regular concerts of the Orches
tra and made a gieat Impression. Tho
work makes a very definite appeal to
American audiences, Blnce Its themes are
based on so-called American folksongs,
and the beautiful second movement of the
symphony, the Largo, has all the plaintive
melancholy of the old lesro slave songs.
The other orchestral numbers include
the dainty Scherzo which Mendelssohn
wrote as incidental music for Shake-,
speare's immortal comedy, '"A Midsum
mer. Night's Dream," and tl.o BUito of
which the Scherzo is a part contains the
famous Wedding March. The Overture
to "IUenzi" of Wagner makes a spirited
ending to an interesting program,
