'-Over Night" Produced in
' Excellent Style by Cap
Admirably acted and beautifully staged
"'Over Night," the farce written by
Philip Bartholoroae, opened the fourth
week of the summer season at Poll's,
and, scored an Immediate hit. From the
sublime to the ridiculous proved an easy
task; for the popular Poll Players, and
cave members of the company an op
portunity to appear In jeading roles,
while the heretofore "leaa3" stepped
gracefully Into the minor parts.

A well-balanced program Is given at

"headllners." The Four Adlers met
I with the best reception. Their Juggling
act Is very clever.
( Alex Craig kept two audiences last

I pearances bv his singing, Joking, and
clever playing of his "one-string"

entertainment of singing and danefng,

Electrlcla, one of the electrical mar
vels of vaudeville, is the headline at

without apparent effort, a high voltage
that would kill tho ordinary man or
woman. She lights an Incandescent
lamp by simply holding It In her fingers;
runs an electric automobile by contact;
lights the gas with her tongue; ex
plodes dynamite by touching a wire
connecting the cartridge, and sits in
an electric chair and takes the full volt
age required to execute a man. with
out the least semblance of discomfort.
Another feature of the bill Is the
Musical Saters, who display marvelous
technique on many instruments. Ru
dolphy and Frauleln Alia Daree offer
a novelty, entitled "An Episode in a
Japanese Tea House," wherein Ru
dqlphy does some mystifying feats of
strength, lifting the entire tea house,
containing six people, with ease. Frau

pleasing voice. Another 'attractive
feature of the bill Is the act of Zennlll

BY ABORN COMPANY
Offering at National Theater
in Contrast With .
The offering of ihe Aborn Opera. Com
pany, at the National Theater for the
first half of this wet-k Is a marked con
trast to the rollicking clays chosen by
the stock companies at the other thea
ters. "Madame Butterfly" Is a. heart
rending tragedy, whose most touching
appeal Is the-uselessness of ltrall. Poor,
little faithful Cho Cho San is really lust
a butterfly afUr all, and her early
death Ih Inevitable. She was something
of a stoic, and a philosopher, too, when,
in Iilt hour of horror, after she has
renlized that Plnkerton Is teallv mar
ried to an American wife, and that she
is awakt-ned from the hope to which
she has ciunij so tenuclously, she her
self murmurs the one word, "geisha!"
It seems almost Incredible that an
native born Italian could have written
the music for this opera, so thoroughly
hnhuert as it Is with the light, sun
shiny and llowery atmosphere of
Nippon. The orchestra is largely re
sponsible In the rendition of this score,
for thf interpretation of the, plot, and

business is sadly delayed by Insistence,
not to mention the entailed discourtesy
to the orchestra, which naturally has
n number a.t this lime.
The part of Madame Butterfly was
sung by Dora De Phllllpe, who made
a most charming and appealing little
Cho Cho San. When singing her
higher notes softly, her tqne was pure
and round, but almost any attempt
to enlarge upon It resulted in a me
tallic tremolo, which she seemed un
able to control. At the end of the
second net. her duet with Suzuki.
Ethel DuFre Huston, was rendered
with exquisite grace and pathos. Miss
Huston was excellent in her role; and
her rich, deep contralto, as heard in
her duets and trio made one regret
not hearing her In a larger part. In
the trio of the third act. of Lieuten
ant Plnkerton (Harry Taylor), Sharp
less (Hamilton Earle), and Miss
Huston, her voice was heard to great
advantage, making this one of the

Henry Taylor as Plnkerton, sows him

tenor voice, and his poise was pleasing,
In the part of Sharp ess, Hamilton
Earle did not have a role which did
him Justice, as did Dr. Miracle In last
week's bill, as It was less convincing.
The make-up of Philip Fein, was un
usually good, and he seemed fairly at
homo In his role, that of the marriage
broker, Goro. Joseph Florian gave his
usual satisfactory performance, and Es
telle Curie, Rupert Henry, and John
Mercer fil ed minor roles acceptably.
The scenery was delicate and appro
priate, the more quiet setting of the
last act with its keynote of sombre
blackness being in marked contrast to
the fairy beauty of the first act.
"Madame Butterfly" has a peculiar
attraction to Washlngtonlans, due to
the fact that the opera was sung orig
inally in English and had its American
premiere in this city. The cast remains
unchanged until Thursday, with but one
exception. Tonight and tomorrow Miss
Ivy Scott will sing the title role.
To Repeat Show
A second performance of the vaude

Pan-Hellenic Association of the George
Washington University In the assembly

At the performance last night the
various numbers were enthusiastically
received, and the funds of the athletic
association of the university, for the
benefit of which the program Ib given,

Numbers Included a one-act farce,

take part, and a number of orchestral

Role of Cloak Model
One little' matrimonial fib led to an
other, and still 'another, until both men
were submerged. almost to their ears In
a pretty kettle of hot water, from
Which only their adroitness at fibbing
could extricate them. 'Complications
multiply themselves In such alarming
ratio that their friends are brought Into

takes thpee acts of rollicking fun and
ridiculous situations to do It.
It Is In the second act that the fun
becomes fast apd furious, for It Is here
that Robins, as George Fisher, hits' upon
the happy plan of- disguising himself
as Fanchon, a cloak model. It Is 'In
this scone that Mr. Robins dons the

In Small Part.
As Mrs. Perry, Miss Frances Nellson
does well In a very small part. She
makes a charming and delightful wife
and daughter, especially In the second
act, which gives her opportunity for
the display of a very wonderful cos
tume, which made every woman In th
house green with envv last night. I
like the new way Miss Nellson Is doing
her hair, and I like the way she wears
her clothes. Miss Julie Blanc, as Mrs.
Bloodgood, has an excellent character
part, which she plays to perfection.
Miss Aljne McDermott, as Annie, and
Miss Helen Marqua, as Lulu, are good
in parts far too small for them, and
Miss Bessie Maxwell makes a elite and
nharmlnir French maid. As a aentleman
farmer from up-State, Carson Davenport
helped to round out tne excellent, cast.
The play contains nothing particularly
new or notoworthy In the way of a
plot, and is made for laughing purposes
only, Us author admits.
As presented by the Columbia Players,
It fulfills all expectations, for the acting
of the principals Is admirable, and the
support Is satisfactory.
The play is beautifully mounted, the
three acts taking place In the home of
the Perrys. In New York city, and rov
ering a period of two very strenuous
days for all concerned. Ernest Maugh

this production, and Arthur Ritchie is

Financial Trouble Delays for

noon It looked as though the much her
alded grand opera production of Gqu
nod's "Faust," under the direction of
H. DeCortez Wolffungen, for which al
most one hundred Washington ama
teurs have been rehearsing for two
months, would not materialize, but after
a long 'wait the curtain went up on the
first act, and those who had waited
were amply repaid for their patience.
Owing to the delay entailed by troubles
of a financial character after the first
scene, the third act was omitted. At
the end of the first scene of the first
act, after considerable delay, an an
nouncement was made to the effect that
one of the principals had fainted, but
would soon be able to continue the per
formance. The rolo of Faust as sunir bv Alfred

Enthusiastic Throngs at Big
Tent, Despite Gloomy s
It takes something more than a heavy
downfall of rain to dampen the ardor
of a Washington circus-going crowd, as
was exemplified last night, when thous
ands of Washlngtonlans trudged to the
show ground at Fifteenth and H streets
northeast, to view the Barnum & Bailey
"greatest show on earth."
Today's threatening storm clouds
neither have hud any effect on the en
thusiasm of those unable to get to the
circus at night. On this, the closing
day of the circus stay In Washington,
even larger crowds than attended on
the opening day promise to be in at
tendance. Minus those dangerous feats which cir
suses a few years ago thought were
necessary to attract large crowds, Ihe
Barnum & Bailey circus this year Is
somewhat different than In former
times'. The loop-the-loop artists and tho
acrobats, who were shot out of a can
non to a trapeze over the middle ring,
are missing. In their stead, however.
Is the big spectacular pageant, "C eo
patra," the most gorgeous pantomimic
production ever undertaken under can
vas. Three hundred singing and danc
ing girls, most of them gathered In
various parts of Egypt, assist In this
production. More than 1,600 persons and
hundreds of horses, camels, elephants,
and the like, go toward making this
the feature of the circus.
The clowns are there this year In a
larger number than formerly. The old
Washington favorite, Harry La Pearl,
who recently was married while In his
clown suit when the show was In Madi
son Square Garden, is the leader of tho
funny men's brigade. He is assisted
by half a hundred others.
