It -will be no dlfflcult matter lor tne
varying tastes of the strangers within
our rates to And satisfaction in the en
tertainments planned by local theater
managers for inaugural week. The same
may also be said of Washlngtonlans, for
It would be hard to find greater local
favorites than Blllle Burke, whom Charles
Frohman will present in Sir Arthur Pin
ero's comedj, 'The 'Mind the Paint'
Girl." at the New National Theater,
Julian Dean, leading woman in "Bought
and Paid For." George Broadhurst'a
corned -drama of domestic life, which
"William A. Brady will present in the
Belasco Theater, and the ever delightful
"Pink Ladv." who comes to the Co
lumbia Theater this week in the person
of Hazel Dawn, supported by the some
cast seen here earlier in the season at
Billie Burke Is a national favorite, both
because she is an American girl to the
core and because she fairly effervesces
with the sort of boujant jouth which
makes even her oldest auditor walk once
more along the paths of life's springtime
while the joung Frohman star sends
the charm of her airy fairly personality
across the footlights.
My first Interview with Miss Burke was
some five years ago when sne was piay
lnir the title role of "Mv Wife" in Chi
cago as John Drew's leading woman It
made no difference how much or how
often I tried to switch the conversation
to other thlnns the" voung comedienne

two subjects One of these was Wash

the other was ' Billj ' Burke, the clown,

as much pride as if she had been telling
me that he was President of the United

Billie Burke is coming to the National
Theater to-morrow night. Her play this
season Is "The 'Mind the Paint" Girl." a
comedy by Plnero. the foremast English
"The 'Mind the Paint' Girl is Plnero's
latest, and. some say, his best comedy.
Its rather odd title Is due to the fact that
its heroine, who Is a London musical
comedy star, has made her first big hit
singing a song called "Mind the Paint."
Lily Parradell that Is her stage name
is Just a typical girl of her class. She Is
prettv and bright and generous and mer
cenary, and all that, and she has risen
from the humblest surroundings to be
" principal girl" at the Pandora Theater,
with a house a whole house, mind In
Bloomsbury, .London's Bohemia
In the play, Pifrero has undertaken to
tell the story of a day and a half in Lily's
private life that Is, her life off the stage
and he does It In the way that has made
him a great dramatist. There Is a scene
at Lily's house on the morning of her
blrthdav, and there I a scene In the
1 05 er of the .theater with a supper part)
given In her honor In full blast, and there
is another scene late at night back at her
house when a young lord proposes mar
riage to her, and she tries to show him
what a fool he is by telling him the story
of her beginnings, and there Is a scene
with a Jealous lover who turns up unex

once Jealous, but now repentant lover,
brings back the joung lord, and well.

of the theater seemed ready to burst

Burke's caressing voice lingering over
her one little song In the London Gaiety
production which she had told me would
sing its way through her life the sweet

Advance reports have it that Julia,
Dean has been delighting her audiences
in the role of Virginia Blaine, in "Bought

praise of New York, Boston. Chicago, and

MME. G ADSKI HAD
BUT ONE TEACHER
Mme. Gadski was born In a suburb of
the city of Stettin, where her father was
postmaster As a chUd she was always
singing When she was seven years of
age, the flute player In the orchestra at
the opera lived In the house back of her
father's, and he heard her singing as
she pla)ed In the )ard back of her house.
He finally called upSn her bother and
told her that the thlld had a phenom
enal voice, but would ruin It If she were
allowed to sing without restraint. He
urged the employment of a teacher, and
a neighbor was engaged to give the child
lessons twice a week.
It Is Mme. Gadskl's boast that she had
but this one teacher. For seven years
she continued to study, and when she
arrived at the age of fourteen her moth
er surprised her father by asking his
permission to let Johanna sing at a con
cert. Up till then he had been kept in
ignorance of her studies. He finally gave
his consent, with great reluctance
When, however, he saw the success of
his child, his pride was awakened
