Latest Imported Operetta
Ran for 200 Nights in
Every visitor to Broadway the past
summer returned hbme whistling the
"Ross Song" or ome other catchy
melody from 'The nose Maid," which
li the attraction at the Columbia Thea
ter thU week. This newly Imported
operetta ran for 200 nights In New York
before the muslc-lovlng publla could
drink Ha nil of the sweet, enduring
melodies. "The Rose Maid" continued
welt Into the second season, being the
first operetta since "The Merry Widow"
to core a record-breaking all-summer
run In New York.
Werba Ic Luscher are now present
ing this splendid production on tour
while Its songs are still freshly popular
and before Its wealth of comedy,
dances, and tun have been cheapened
by crude Imitations. One of the widely
discussed features Is the "Happy Fam

The story of "The Rose Maid," with
its pretty romance woven about the

"The Rose Maid" begins and ends
with a romping scene of musical gay
ety, while the Intervening two and a
half hours are filled with dainty
waltzes, twosteps, and brilliant concert
ed numbers that rouse the audience, to
applause. "The Rose Maid," with Its
New York cast and production, comes
, to Washington from the Olobe Theater,
where It has just concluded a successful
two-season run. The engagement at the
Columbia here Is for one week, wjth the
regular mating on Saturday and a spe
clal popular priced performance on
"The Littlest Rebel," Edward Peplo'o
Interesting four-act play In which
William Farnum Is the star, will be pre
sented, under the direction of A. H.
Woods, at the National theater on
Monday night for a one week's en
gagement In. "The Littlest Rebel" the author
has made a unique departure from the
comentlonal story of the late unpleas
antness. Instead of employing as a
central theme the love affair of the of
ficer from the North and, the lady fr.om
the South, or vice versa, he has, taken
I' for 'his theme the paternal love of a
hunted officer for his motherless child,
and the human kindness that existed
i between men of a divided country In
spite of a long and bloody struggle.
He shows that ltils-not only tho lave
I that exists Irf the opposite sdxes that
count, but that an equally strong,- If
not stronger, motUe exists when the
chord of human paternity Is touched.
Captain Cary, a Southern scout. Is run
to cover aa he Is visiting- his little
i motherless girl, who lives alone In a
, deserted cabin" near Richmond, after the
burning of the. home by Federal troops.
The father Is In Imminent danger of being
shot, but the little girl pleads with the
commander of the Northern troopers,
Colonel Morrison, who relents and al
lows the scout to escape.
Later In the day a battle ensues, dur-
, Ing which the scout saves the North
ern colonel's life. They are both be
trayed and taken prisoners A court
martial sentences tnem to death, Mor
rison as a traitor for allowing Cary to
escape, and the Confederate scout as
''The XJttleSt "Rebel." as Cary'a little
girl Is called, seeks General Grant and
pleads with him for the. life of Colonel
Morrison and her father, explaining the
circumstances through which the escape
was made. She succeeds In arousing
the general's Interest and sympathy,
and both men are finally saved. The
methods employed by the author In
bringing about the denouement are In
genious and true to life.
It Is a stirring and exciting war play,
with a big battle scene employing a
great 'number of soldiers.
It Is appealing In Its situations, "and
demonstrates that men, even In the
midst of war, ran stilt be swayed by
feelings of loe and sympthy.
With on array of excellent merry
makers, "The 'social Maids" will enter
tain the audiences of the dayety Thea
ter this week The orterlng has been
seen here before, but In Its new form It
Is a more elaborate shon, though the
I plot has not undergone many changes
The comedy parts hac been greatly
strengthened, the singing ensembles
newly written, the scenic effects and
costuming raised to the latest require
ments of beauty, and nothing has been
overlooked to make "The Social Maids"
in their naw garb an even better enter
tainment. There are twelve principal merry
makers In the cast. George Stone holds
the stellar honors, and Jennie Austin Is
a close second, while Wilbur Dohbs,
Jimmy Connor, Rllly Baker. Josle Klne,
