THE WASHIWGTOW HERALD, STJITDAT, 1TAECH 26, 1911;
New York, March 23. Although Mrs.
Fiske's Becky Sharp is familiar to our
theatergoers, the Lyceum Theater held
a large audience Monday night, when this
favorite actress began an engagement in
her well-known impersonation of Thack
eray's heroine, Becky Sharp. As the
years roll by Mrs. Fiske's art broadens,
until now her interpretations of strong
dramatic roles have become a standard.
Becky Sharp, as now presented by her, is
appealing, and on the opening night
elicited much vigorous applause. An in
teresting feature of the performance was
the first appearance of Henry E. Dbcey
as a member of Mrs. Fiske's company.
He was seen in the character of the Mar
quis of Stejnc and gave a vivid embodi
ment of that vicious old gentleman. The
entire performance was a most enjoyable
one, and at the end of the last act the
fair star was obliged to make a speech
of thanks before the audience would
leave the theater.
"As a Man Thinks," a 'play by Augus
tus Thomas, is a hit and should run the
season out at the Thirty-ninth Street The
ater. It is this way: A man believes
his. wife is untrue to him and has good
reason for so thinking, but in spite of
incriminating circumstances she is as
pure as the driven snow, or words to that
effect. In one of the big scenes the
father of the wife inadvertently tells his
son-in-law that he saw the wife enter
the rooms of a former lover. About this
time John Mason, as a rabbi, interferes
and proves the wife innocent of all ell
intentions Of course, the play ends here
As a rabbi, Mr. Mason has never done
better work. Chrjstal Heme lends valu
able assistance In the role of the wife.
Mr. John Flood, although somewhat
melodramatic, is excellent as the hus
band When Mr. Thomas wrote "The
"Witching Hour" it was believed that he
had reached the pinnacle of his power as
a playright. But "As a Man Thinks" will
live long after the former play has been
Last week at the Bijou Theater a new
play called "The Confession" was pro
duced It was a melodrama, but not of
the Kramer tpe There are no mechani
cal effects, but a straightout story some
what like this: A woman has confessed
to a priest her knowledge of a crime.
Later an innocent man is accused, but the
p-iest will not divulge the confession. In
the end the guilty man himself confesses
and all ends as good melodramas should

A Sam Bernard Story.
No comedian In the world to-day has
a larger personal following than Sam
Bernard. Ever since his early hits at
the Casino and Weber & Fields', his ludi
crous and pathetic wrestle with the Eng
lish language has endeared him to
amusement lovers. Mr. Bernard has
made a profound study of the German
character, and while he is a great ad
mirer of the culture and scientific
achievements of his "adapted language,"
he occasionally runs across some amus
ing incident. He tells the following con
versation which he overheard the other
day in the Bronx in a small drug store
where he had stoppd, while out motor
ing, for a glass of buttermilk:
"The German boy who presided over
the soda fountain was plainly -accustomed

larger cities of the country at the con

of feminine jouth would rise so quickly
in revolt that the home would look as, if
it had been struck by a ci clone. But It
is ail very different in Hungary, where
girls realize and accept the social condi
tions which give the oldest daughter a
clear field with suitors, while the other
girls In the family willingly remain In
the background until she is married off.
Perhaps not always willingly, but when
they are restive they are subdued by
mother with threats of shortened frocks
and reduced ages. .
Marriage appears to bo the only voca
tion In life open to joung women in the
land of the Magar, and where there is
more than one in a family it requires
all the domestic philosophy or the Hun
garian mother to keep matters moving
smoothly. The daughters of the gentry
are trained from childhood for a. matri
monial career, and the question of mar
riage, viewed from the American stand
point, might easily be arranged in a se
ries of chapters There would be: "Open
ing of the Dowry Fund." "Preparing
Girls for the Altar." "The Sanctity of En
gagements." "The Perils of KllrtutVn,"
"The Education of the Bride," "The Pre
liminaries to Wooing." "The End of the

girl he must be prepared either to marry

The wedding celebrations with people
of the higher social station are tremen- '
dous social functions. Sometimes they '
last as long as six days. No regular,

are kept up continuously, the guests and
the gjpsy musicians snatching a few
hours' sleep from time to time. Some
times after the wedding the guests ad

for another long period.
Bobert MantelTs Career.
Robert Mantel! is universally conceded
to be the foremost of those American
players who devote themselves.almost ex
clusively to Shakespeare. Mr. Mantell is
Scotch by birth and parentage. The
stage called him early in life, but his
parents refused to hear of his becoming
an actor, and as a consequence he ran
away from home as a mere boy and came
to America. But he met with no en
couragement and after two weeks re
turned to England, where he made his
first appearance at Rockdale. Lincoln
shire, in 1S76, under the name of R. Hud
son. George Clark, afterward an Important
member of Daly's company in New York,
was starring through the English prov
inces at tho time rn "The Shaughraun,"
and the youthful actor3 second appear
ance was made with Mr. Clark as Father
Nolan in that play. Samuel Phelps found
him In this little company and took him
to Saddler's Wells In London, where he
had a valuable Shakespearean experi
ence. After a brief tour in support of
Marie Do Grey he made his second trip
to America in 1S7S.
.On his return Mr. Mantell acted first
in Helena Modjeska's company, but his
stay was brief. After a single season he
returned to England to appear with
George S. Knight in "Otto" and subse
quently he supported Miss Wallls In Lon
don in an extended standard repertoire.
Hiso first New York appearance was at
tho Windsor Theater in "The World," in
1SS2. and his second and more success
ful appeal for popularity was his Jack
Hearno in "The Romany Rye" at Booth's.
The next brought the production of "Fe
dora," by Fanny Davenport, and Mantell
as Loris Ipanoff achieved a triumph
which echoed for years. In ISM he cre
ated the leading part in "CaUed Back.'
This was at the Fifth Avenue, and later
In the same year he created the lead In
"Dakolar" at the Lyceum.
His finely developed ability and the
wmularirr he achieved in all these roles
led to his debut as a star at the Fifth
Avenue tn 1SS6 in "Tangled Lives." This
was completely overshadowed by Mon-
bars" in which ne acmeved a success
equal to that of Ipanoff In "Fedora."
Mr. Mantell woricea xnrougn long touts
in various new and old plays and finally
built up a repertoire of Shakespearean
and classic roles.
Since 1890 he has played "The coralcan
Brothers, , "The Marble Heart," "The
