the Colonial company aro to offer "Tho
Thief" for tho first timo hero in slock
and at popular prices, and if present
indications hold good their promises
the engagement will be ono of the most,
important over played by a Salt Lake
stock company. Interest in tho Bern
stein play has grown apace, and it af
fords Miss Countiss so splendid an op
portunity for just the sort of emotional
acting she is best in, and because it
gives every other member of the com
pany an excellent part.
Henri Bernstein is without question
one of the most remarkable., dramatists
of tho present day. He invests his
work with such a force and realism as
to make him invincible of attack. Tn
tho drama "The. Thief" he has taken
a tact different from anything he has
written previously. His heroine is
.Marie Louise Yoysin. whose husband
does not make enough to support her
in the luxur' she craves. The woman 1
believes, too, that her husband's love
will wane if she 'does not look par
ticularly attractive constantly. To sc
cure her clothes she begins to steal
from their friends. It goes on but a
little while before suspicion falls on
her. and a young friend of her and
her husband, Fernaiul. assumes the re
sponsibility for the thefts. He does
it out of pure friendship for the girl,
but her husband, on learning who the
real thief is. looks askance at the con
fession of Fernand, and finally accuses
his wife of a liason with tho young
The suffering of the uirl is intense.
Her heart is her husbnnd's. and it wa
to please him that she stole. With all
her might she strive to make him see
what led to her undoing. He cannot
craip the fact that nothing but a wild,
mad love to please him, to look beauti
ful in his eves always, drove his airl
wife to theft. Finally he searches else

THE production of "The Incuba
tor Girls" this week at tho
Rm press is only another stop
farther to show tho high stand
ard to which Sullivan & Considinc arc
attaining in popular-priced vaudeville.
This musical tabloid is prcsidod over
by the eminent comedian, Charles
Wayno, and "the darling of America's
stageland," Miss Gertrude Des Roches.
"The Incubator Girls", is a breezy
and melodious playlet to. It introduces
statuesque Gertrude Des Roches, who
is not only a stage beauty, but has all
the attributes and accomplishments of
a musical comedy star as well. Her
mannerisms, her splendid voice and
her captivating beauty, aro the great
est factors in the sumptuous produc
tion. Playing opposite Miss Des Roches is
Mr. Wa3'ne. the comedian, who is a real
mirth producer, and the vehicle which
he uses makes it possible to con hire
up a series of situations that start
the laughing muscles working and
prove a panacea for grouch and fits of
the blues. The production has
some beautiful stage settings which,
with the electrical effects, run up into
the thousands. The costuming is gorgeous-
The last scene, where all the
girls are in bathing in the sea is made
most realistic by electrical effect.
"The Incubator Girls" are not the

other big acts on the bill which are

The Arion quartette has so far

is the scarcity of uood quartettes in
vaudeville. These four warblers have
all splendid voices and know how to
harmonize them to the best advantage.
Their selections nre awav from tho
beaten path. Lovers of bannoiiv and
sweet singing should hear this aggre
