Thinks Margaret Illington
Could Improve Part
That a dull, drab theme, played In a
dull drab fashion, has Its appeal to a
large number of theatergoers. Is being
demonstrated this week In tho Belaaco
Theater, where Margaret Illington Is
appearing In Chatlcs Kenyon's much

Mr. Kcnyons play Introduces tne
audience to nny number of extremes In
character and situations In order to
produce his effects, and not always do
the characters ring true. For Instance,
no one who has ever had any actual
knowledge of how "the other half lives"
will deny that there arc people like
Mrs. Burhe-Joncs. who vllt(the slums,
and look over the Inhabitants through
lorgnettes, quite as though they were
looking at some strange animal In tho

Illlngton's acting 'is artistic, but she

from the general excellence of her
work. Her voice Is badly placed, and
this Is especially noticed In her more

no reason why Maggie, even though
she Is 'laboring under stress of unhappt

HOW SQUANK FOOLED THE GNOMES.
SQUANK was a funny, little gob
lin who ran errands for the
Queen of the fairies. Ono day
when ho got back from the store
where he had gone to get her 5 cents'
worth of chocolate drops, he found her
"Oh, little Squanlc," she said, "I havo
Just got tho moht awful news. That
bad Shugrac, the King of the Black
Qnomcs, Is coming to drive us out of
our beautiful fairyland. They will soil
our clean carpets with their dirty feet
and mess up our lovely napkins with
their dirty hands." And the Queen
wept her spider-web handkerchief full
of tiny tears.
will try to frighten them away,
raid Squunk. "I will tell that gossipy
Jack Sparrow thut we have something
terrible to kill gnomes, and I know hu
will run and tell Hhagrac right off."
So he ran oft and found tho sparrow.
'I hcur thoso dirty gnomes aro coin
ing to take away our beautiful fairy
land," remarked Squank to the spar
row, "but If they dnro to try It they
will nr(d we hnvo something ter-iblo to
eat them up:"
What Is It you have?" asked the
sparrow, who hodia great deal of curi
osity." Now Squank had thought that
the snarrow would inn oft at otico to
tell Shagrao and never thqught fabout
being asked questions. But he tyund ho
hod to answer, so no mauo up some
thing right away.
"Why, it Is- the great, grand Pan
ganlkus," replied Squank, saying tho
first thing that popped Into his heed.
"Then thero aro his wlfo and baby,
Then Jack Hparrow flew away and
told Shagrac what Squank had suld.
But Shagrac onlylaughed and said ho
did not believe thero was any such
thing In tho world us the great, grand
Panganlkus. "The King of tho Gnomes
suys he dsn't think thero Is any Pan
gantkus," repeated the sparrow to
Squank, when ho camo back. Did you
ever seo a Panganlkus yourself,
iiquank?" Squank thought a moment,
then ho said: "Of course, I have not
anyone" who ever sees them never llts
to tell the tale, they are so terrible."
"Then how do ou know thero uro
anv?" asked the sparrow. "You can
go and tell the King of the anomea
tliat I'C Will IlllU UUl W 1MB PVllun .-
what I say Is true." said Squank. "He
tan know It-it tho great, grand Pan
ganlkus is around when he hears the
signals." "And what aro tho signals?"
asked the curious spurrow. "Well,
there ure three." reeled Squank. "You
know the great, grand Panganlkus
lives right down under the ground be
low our beautiful fairyland. But ho
loves fairies ond ncer disturbs us ,a
bit. It Is only gnomes that ho hales.
And whenever ho knows thut thero uro i
anv gnomes about he gives a signal.
You can hear his hollow voice coming
l-llowlng In awful tones from out of
the earth, sajlng: "Gimme a gnome,
gimme a gnome." But you cannot seo
the creature at all, for he Is Just get
ting ready to come up. Then he waits
a little while, and his wife, who Is Just
as awful as ho Is. moans out In a dread
ful voice that bccuis to como from the
skies, saying WhOj-o, who-o.'
"And when It Is Just '-'0 seconds be
foro he Is reudy to como up the baby
of the great, grSnd Pangunlkui cilen
out In a vast booming voice, 'Oh-he,
Oh-he.' till tho brunches of the trees
seem to crackle. Hut you cannot seo
nny of them. But It Is a terrible
rtolse that the Panganlkus family
makes when it Is hungry."
"All right." said the sparrow, "1
