"SEVEN DAYS" GETS
A EI PRODUCTION
BY POLI PLAYERS
Balky Dumb Waiter Makes
Farce Funnier Than
It is difficult to tell which Is the
funnier, Miss Loulso Kent with a lady
like little "souse," or a burglar who
tries to elude a policeman by hiding In
a dumb waiter which refuses to work,
thus giving the said "copper" Bevcral
unhappy and turbulent minutes during
which he doesn't exactly know what to
This Is what happened In "Seven
Days" last night, as presented by the
Poll Players in the cool and comfort
able Avenue playhouse. The ladylike
little "souse' belonged to the play; the
stubborn dumb waiter did not, but
Everybody liked the way Officer Brown
(Mark Kent) and tho burglar (John Fee)
managed to make the best of an awk
ward situation when tho waiter refused
When Mary Roberts Rlnehart wrote
"When a Man Marries," so she told mo
onco herself, she ha'd no Idea of drama
tising the book, until the suggestion
was made by one of her friends. After
one has seen the result of the drama
tization, one wonders how it ever could
have been possible to overlook the won
derful wealth of material in the plot.
It Is one of the funniest farces of many
seasons, and withal It is so clean, so
absolutely free from anything that Is
suggestive or offensive that it Is recom
mended to even the most captious critic.
Story Is Familiar.
The story is familiar to the entire
reading public, concerning, as it does,
the situation which a houseful of young
people And thomselvea when the place
la quarantined. There is a maiden
aunt, upon whose good graces depends
the bread and butter and sugar of one
young James Wilson, whoso wife di
vorced him for no other reason than
that he waa too fat to fulfil her esthe
tic requirements. Then there is an
assortment of people, including the
burglar, who hides behind tho kitchen
range and emerges therefrom In a par
boiled condition, and who hasn't a word
to say until the very end of the closing
act; a policeman with a brogue as
thick and rich as clotted cream; and
many other picturesque characters, all
of whom are locked up and guarded by
an army of detectives and newspaper
reporters In Jim Wilson's home.
in the first act wi are let In on tho
ground floor, where news of Aunt Se
llna's arrival Is brought, and the burg
lar enters; also Jim's divorced wife,
and the policeman. In the second act
we descend to the basement, where the
excruciatingly funny "omelet" scene is
enacted between Miss Izetta Jewell, as
Kit McNalr, and A. H. Van Buren, as
Tom Harbison. This scene Is one of
the funniest of the features of the per
formance. Haines Happily Cast.
As Jim Wilson, the fat husband, whose
wife couldn't bear to live with him
solely on this account, Louis Haines
had a part that fitted him to perfec
tion, and in which he appeared to ad
vantage. To Miss -Marie Howe was given
the Tart of Aunf'Sellna, the stern old
guardian of her nephew's morals, who
drank patent medicine and had pro
nounced views on the suffrage question.
Miss Gertrude Blndhill made an ex
quisite little Miss (Divorced) Wilson,
and was exceptionally funny In the coal
hole scene. Robert LeBeur was seen In
a minor part, which was excellently
Taking it altogether, "Seven Days" is
a happy choice, Just the sort of a play
one will enjoy on a warm night.
Several changes have been made In
the lobby of Poll's Theater, the strong
lights having been replaced by shaded
lanterns, which shed a soft glow over
the Jardlnlers of roses and tubs of
palms and potted plants that have
transformed the entrance Into a garden
effect that suggests a pleasing change
from the heat of the street. J. M.
'The Fatted Calf," a playlet pre
sented by tho Pickering and Rutledge
Company, Is the headline number of the
Casino's Mil this week. Its theme Is
drawn f m the familiar biblical story,
but the jetting and characters are
modern. The bright and pointed dia
logue of the skit won considerable favor
from last evening's audlenco. Miss
Gladys Vance, dancing In a mirror-bedecked
costume was something of a
ndvelty. Her Impersonations of old
time actors and actresses closed her
Fox and Ward, two minstrel men of
old time, give Bong, dance, and patter
number, which was the most warmly
received of the evening. Hays and Al
polnt in a sketch and the trained ani
mals of Miss Theodora Osborne are
other numbers of the bill.
HIS EACE A SIGHT
Brown Crust h Inch Thick, People
Would Stare at Him. Itched and
Caused Greatest Agony. Could
Hardly Endure It. Used Cuticura
847 Columbus Ave., Now York. N. Y.
"My left thigh was suddenly affected by
eczema, also my chin and face. After one
or two days it would become a dark brown
crust or scab sometimes about one-eighth of
an Inch thick. It was terrible, as my face
was a sad sight to see, all scabs. People
would stare at me and my boy friends would
never let up on teasing me about It. The
itchlns was greatest when it started to come
on. I would not be able to let It alone and
as soon as I scratched my face It would start
in to water, a yellowish fluid and from then
on till it got better for a while, it would cause
the greatest agony. I could hardly endure It.
"I was given powders, which seemed to
drive the eczema on to my face more than
ever. Then I took blood medicines, but they
had no effect either. I had the eczema for five
or seven years on and off. Then I began to
use the Cuticura Remedies. It began to dis
appear so I kept using the Cuticura Soap and
Cuticura Ointment until I was cured."
(Signed) M. Ulmer, Nov. 16, 1011.
SCALP ITCHED. COULDNT SLEEP
Used "Cuticura.'1 Rid of the Trouble.
677 Second Ave., New York, N. Y. "My
scalp started to Itch terribly, so that I could
not sleep nor keep from scratching. The
places opened and made sores. I tried many
remedies but they made my head worse. A
friend advised me to use Cuticura Soap and
Ointment. In ten weeks I was rid of this
trouble." (Signed) Miss Alva Gustafson,
May 17, 1011.

Julia. Murdoch Says Weber-Fields
Jubilee Is a Delightful Concoction
U waa Just like old times to have
Weber and Fields kid tho audience up
to the point of living In constant ex-,
pectatlon of the long dead sausago Joke,
and then have them crack It in an en
tirely new and unexpected manner.
Just as the audlenco had about given It
up, Helena Collier Qarrlck made her
appearance with the string of sausages
about her neck then everybody knew
the Joko was coming. She had used
them first as "swcot violets," then later
as a muffler, for "the night waa cold
and the snow was falling fast," and
lastly, when William Collier picked It
up, ft had barked and bitten his hand.
Then everybody was satisfied.
It was the same old joke we had
heard In our Infancy, and wo havo
heard manv seasons since, the old Joke
without which Weber & Fields would
no longer be Weber & Fields. These two
Jovial gentlemen hnd come Into their
own onco more. The audlenco recog
nized this fact, and settled back to en
Joy their foolishness In the Belasco yes
terday, knowing that there were many
more old friends to come. The Joke re
ceived tumultuous applause; which, In
Itself was a tribute to the Weber &
Climax of Joke
"I have choked him for years, and he
likes It." Few people saw the real sen
timent embodied in the lines that Lew
Fields spoke when his fingers closed
about the throat of his partner, Weber.
But the words were a synopsis of the
whole Jubilee, and an explanation of the
gathering that filled the houRe, and
overflowed Into the lobby. The lover
of real keen comedy who missed this
show, not only was denied the pleasure
of hearing and seeing the best com
edians of the stage perform, but missed
also an unusually pretty and accom
plished chorus, whose deft and prac
ticed antics were easily half the show.
"To see Lillian Russell, Joe Weber,
Lew Fields, and William Collier was
worth 13 In itself any day," as wus
remarked by an actor man who sat in
the audience yesterday. Who would
miss hearln Fay Tompleton sing agatr,
"I'm Called Little Buttercup, Dear
Little Buttercup," as she sung It many
years ago? Fay Is still her dear, Btotit
self, and nobody muffed her Joke In tho
burlesque of "Bunty Bulls and Strings"
when she said to her "feyther," who
had told her that he had stolen UU
from Susie SUmpson, "Why didn't you
take them off me, feyther; I ran stand
It?" She could easily afford to loee
this much; of this everybody will agree,
but everybody would hate to have hei
lose them, for she Is delightful Just ns
she Is In her successful song, "Rosle,
You Are My Posy," which she sings
In her gown of beaten sliver, trimmed
about the hem with red roses.
Ever Fair Lillian
Charming As Ever.
Then there was Lillian Rucsell (Mrs.
Ponce de Leon RUBsell, she should
have been named), who looked more
June bridelike than ever, and who, ono
For the closing week of the season,
Manager Peck Is offering Gayety pat
rons one of the best, burlesque shows
that has appeared at the popular Ninth
street house in many weeks. The at
traction Is Joe Hurtlg's "Taxi Girls," In
an amusing two-net musical farce, en
titled, "In Mexico." It offers many op
portunities for colorful costuming, while
the singing is much above the average
of burlesque companies. Frank Tay
lor and Martv Ward, as the bogus lords,
have the chief comedy roles and are
ably assisted by Henry Nelson and
Maybelle Morgan and Sarah Fink
hend the feminine contingent and both
worked with pleasing vivacity. A
feature of the olio Is the Farrel-Tay-lor
trio. In "The Minstrel Man." with
Maybelle Morgan In several good songs,
Henry and Sarah Fink, with a pleasing
singing and dancing number, and Marty
Ward and John Bohlman as the crazy
college chaps, rounded out the vaude
ville part of the show.
An additional attraction will be of
fered Wednesday night when Joe Tur
ner and Con Albright will wrestle.

This Offer Good for a Limited Time Only
The Procter & Gamble Distributing Co,
cannot help believing, has discovered
the fountain of eternal youth and has
drunk of Its waters deeply. 1 heard a
near oia may in rront or me yesterday
lean over to her granddaughter and so,
"I heard her sing that song, my dear,
thirty years ago, and she sings it bel
ter today than she did then." Lillian
Is as beautiful as she was a third of a
century ago, and in her wonderful gown
of diamonds that cost nobody knows
how many dollars, her still more won
derful Gaby headdress, her sparkling
JewelB, of which Bhe possesses about a
peck j her fair type of beauty, which
docs not seem to havo faded in tho
slightest degree, she Is still good to
look upon, easy to listen to, and still
wears her clothes with the dash and
abandon that mad her an Idol many
In the "Bunty" farce, the presence of
Ada Lewis, who did not once lapse
from the seriousness of her part, and
who convulsed the audience with her
frequents attempts to reach the' bottle
of "Scotch," was tho cause of constant
enjoyment. In the role of Suslo SUmp
son, billed In the' cast as the villain,
she more than lived up to her name
and fame. For tho wanton manner In
which she gave her hoopsklrts a saucy
flip, displaying her remarkable barber
fiole stockings and her red flannel
Ingerle to poor Tammas (Collier), In
an effort to lure him from the bosom
of his family, was villainous, though
Weber and Fields
Same As of Old.
Those two lovable comedians, Weber
and Fields, who have endeared them
selves by the perfect seriousness with
which they submit to each other's In
dignities, pose m the victor and the
dying gladiator, all done up in swordB,
shields, and whitewash. Pierre PolBson
(George Bchan) tries hard to persuade
Mrs. Wallingford Grafter (Lillian Rus
sell) to buy them, but when she turns
and sees a shower of breadcrumbs fall
ing from the mouth of the victor upon
the shield of the dying gladiator, she
could not contain her own merriment.
A prettier, more clever choruB has
not been seen in Washington for many
days, and the toe dancing of Miss Bes
sie Clayton was enough to make that
artist, Genee, look to her laurels. Her
muscular control Is perfect, and besides
this, she shows herself mistress of
some unusual tricks with her ankles.
The quaint rehash of hilarity, of the
sort that only Weber and Fields know
how to furnish, Is sumptuously
mounted, and the chorus Is by no
means stinted so far as pretty girls In
stunning costumes are concerned.
Of course, everybody wanted to see
Weber and Fields yesterday, and f"r
that reason many stood up throughout
the three hours that these two come
dians were making merry on the stage
Doubtless there nre somo people in the
world who will see, In future time tu
come, some pair of funmakers who as
thoroughly fulfill one's senso of perfect
burlesque team work as do Weber and
Fields, but I doubt If It will be any who
attended the Weber and Fields Jubilee
at tho Belasco Theater yesterrtav.
The headline attraction at the Im
perial Theater this week Is the act by
Wagner and Drew, Jugglers with water,
who present a comedy as novel as It Is
clever. Jim Dixon last evening won
continued applause with his comical
monologues and responded to several
encores with stories new to Washing
ton. John J. Noel, In Illustrated songs,
scortd with solos of popular numbers.
Lexey and Melton In their dancing
stunts were well received and responded
to several encores. Stanley and Rice,
In a sketch depleting scenes on South
ern plantations, provoked lnughter at all
the performances yesterday.
The World's Comedy Four, a quartet
of unusual ability, sang classic and
popular numbers that were applauded
time and again.
Several reels of motion pictures com
pleted a bill that Is termed one of the
best seen at this theater this season.

THE SE.VEN SISTERS'
Miss Violet Heming as Mici,
Gives Splendid In
terpretation. "The Seven Sisters," a delightful
Hungarian comedy in four acts, dealing
with tho marriage of three elder girls
to the end that Irresponsible Mid may
wed. was well played at the Columbia
Theater last night and a capacity audi
ence awarded the performance Us full
meed of praise.
The performers seemed to havo at
tained with remarkable fidelity the
characterizations that are the ohlef
charm or this play. Mlska Sandeifly,
the halr-Tralned lieutenant with a pen
chant for his superior officers' wives,
wbs given a new life in the Interpreta
tion -rendered by Godfrey Matthews.
In the last two acts, where he
appears In a gentle slow of Inebriety,
the actor, without accentuating' offen
sively the alcoholic condition required
of his part, gavo a splendid portrayal
and kept tho audience laughing from
entrance to exit.
Little Miss Violet Hemlng, as the in
genue Mici, is deserving of praise for
her delightful, naive. Dancing and sing
ing her way through the four acts she
won the hearts of her auditors and In
the climax at tho third act. when, after
safely marrying her three older sisters
by a variety of craft, she denounces
her own methods and declares herself
"willing to marry for love alone," a'.xo
met with power the momentary tense
emotion of the scene.
Ferl Horkoy, who finally weds Mici
after her older sisters are "safely out
of the way," was well played by Ed-
uiii n. nuuuin, wniie mt naicuious
mannerisms of Tony Telekl and Barorf
uiuu were Huequmeiy empnasizea Dy
Arthur Richie and J. Hammond Dalley.
Concerning the plot of the play, w'lich
manv have seen before, only a word
need be said. Following the Hungarian
custom, the eldest daughter of the
family must be married before her
younger sisters can wd. Horkoy, who
loves Mid, aids and abeta her In vail

A director with a sense of proportion
staged the performance splendidly the
second and fourth acts, within the
castle wallB of Baron Radvlany's home
being; especially worthy of mention.
Snatches of Hungarian melody during
and between the acts, added to tho
spirit of old world realism.
Mme. Rejanc, the great French ac
tress, appears on the moving picture
screen of the Majestic Theater the first
half of this week, "Mme. Sans Gene"
being the play. It is interesting to
note the feeling and emotion indicated
by the facial play of a really able

French Classic Pleases
Large and Appreciative
Followers of the Aborn Company were
given a treat last night when Mlsa
Louise Le Baron, remembered for her
remarkable work In II Trovatore, as
Azucena, sang tho soprano role of "Mlg
ncn" at the National Theater. MIbs La
Baron, has usually appeared In contralto
roles, and it was an agreeable surprise
to her audience to hear and" see he rto
uch advantage, for not only is she tho
possessor of an excellent voice but also
she la an actress of more than usual
The management is to be congratu
lated on the choice of this opera, for
coming as it docs In the midst of such
unexpected warm weather, its tuneful
melod(es and plot bo pleasantly free
from the bloody melodrama one looks
for In grand opera, are soothlnsr and
The role of Flllna, the coquette, Is or
almost equal Importance to that of
Mlgnon, and the part as handled by
Miss Alice Kraft was quite a success.
Muslo lovers who remember the singing
01 me zamous roionaise by Tetrezzlnt
here In Washington some time ago had
occasion to recall the golden notes of
that gifted songster when the strains
of that popular melody were heard. Al
though Miss Kraft was very pleasing
and In the earlier parts of the opera dis
played her clear soprano to marked ad
vantage, her rendition of the Polonaise
was marred by an unpleasant husklness.
Albert Amudl, who sang the part of Wll
helm Melster, has a tenor voice of good
quality, which won Insistent applause,
but If he has any ability as an actor he
did not display it at last night's per
formance. The baritone, Wilmot C.
Goodwin, made a satisfactory Ixtharlo.
Fein, remembered for his excellent
make-up nnd character work in "Ma
dame Butterfly," gave his usual credit
Tho setting of this opera gives oppor
tunity for excellent scenery and stage
effects and were no disappointment to
lpst night's audience. Tonight and Wed
nesday night, Miss Helena KIrmes will
sing in the role of Mlgnon, Miss Mabel
Slemon will be the Flllna, and Slnagra
will have the role of Wllhelm Melster.
Although In celebrating their third an
niversary last week the management of
the Coamos Theater put on what was
believed to have been the best program
yet given there, this week the six num
bers of vaudeville presented are just as
attractive and strong as the program
of last week. Two large crowds at
tended last night.
The Four Ellsworths are the head
liners. They give "The Rejuvenators"
In a manner that won approval. Their
skit Is a concoction of mirth that is very
effective. Miss Margie Hilton's colonial
doll act was a sharp burlesque on au
tomatons, and the song and dance was
most delightful. The Weston Bisters
sang several songs that won applause.
Their dancing was clever. George F.
Lauder and company gavo a ventrllo
qulstlc feature. Usually such features
aro received with but average apprecia
tion, but Lauder's work Is Buch that
it must be appreciated. Restive, the
Italian accordion player, was well re
ceived. Pathe's Weekly Review contained In

In Jefferson ocunty, ind., wore both
leading parts which were handled ca
pably. Heckler, at the county conven
tion, nominates Tlllford Wheeler for
prosscutlng attorney .unbeknown to the
young lawyer, who Is just out of col
lege. The. opposition candidate Is Ellas
Rigby, father of Lucy Rlgby, to whom
young Tlllford Wheeler Is engaged to be
married. The marriago of tho young
people Is threatened during the election
campaign, as Jim Heckler wages a bit
ter fight, in behalf of his junior law
partner, again Ellas Rigby.
For a while indications are that Miss
Rlgby will not give her hand to a man
who Is running against her father's
election, all of which develops a more
or less humorous situation, as young
Wheeler Is "only tho candidate," and
Jim Heckler Is doing the fighting. It
develops that Heckler's desire to elect

prosecuting attorney over Ellas Heck
