Frohman was right; they have.
Their achievement speaks volumes
for either the talents or the personal
popularity of the celebrated relatives.
The vehicle giveii them for their ap
pearance as co-stars is Sardou's "A
Scrap of Paper," produced with con
siderable success 53 years ago a
great play in its day, but about as well
adapted for present-day presentation
as knee breeches .and a cocked hat
would be for a Broadway stroll.
Nevertheless, considerable num
bers of people are flocking to the Em
pire to See Drew and Miss Barrymore
and their excellent supporting com
pany, which includes Chas. Dal ton,
Fuller Mellish, Mary Boland, Mrs.
Thos. Whiffen and Jeffreys Lewis.
x Another spring production is "The
Charm of Isabel," written by Syd
ney Rosenfeld and sponsored by Wm.
A. Brady. There isn't much to the
paly, and whatever slight chance it
might have had to "get over" has
been spoiled by assigning Marie Nord-
strom to the part of Isabel.
This heroine is supposed to be a
flighty, seductive, appealing, young
person who gets into difficulties be

out because people can't resist her.
Capable actress though she is, Miss
Nordstrom is nothing of this sort and
her insufficiency leaves the little com
edy flat on its back.
Pictures of the parade and other
ceremonies in honor of the sailors
and marines killed at Vera Cruz were
shown the same evening at a Broad
way movie house.

place where we can get the taste of
that awful play out of our mouths."

about unhappiness for what we have
heard has driven me to drink," and
Diok called the waiter and ordered a
I am always unhappy when Dick
drinks anything, but I don't just
know the way to stop him. I have
heard him speak about one of our
acquaintances who will not allow her
husband to drink any alcoholic
drinks if she knows it, and then
laugh at the way her husband fools
her about it, and I am sure that An
nie is right. "One must not shame
her man before others."
But I am awfully worried about
Dick. He is certainly drinking more
than is good for him.
If I should say this to him he would
be very angry, for, with the excep
tion of the one time of which I have
told you, little book, he has never
been intoxicated since we were mar
ried. "I feel better," said Dick after he
had drained his glass, and a voice be
hind my chair chimed in with: "Yes,
I know, old man, every time you
drink the world looks different."
"Why, how are you, Bill?" said
Dick, somewhat uncertainly, for he
was not sure how I would treat Bill
"I am not feeling very well," said
Teimey as he came around and coolly
took a chair at our table.
Bill Tenney is certainly a hand

looked a little tired, and either it was
