Says Production Is "A Trip

The supply or available themes for
musical comedies having aparently been
exhausted by tha tireless output of the
last decade, librettists are turning to the
older, farces for their material for latter-day
Hoschna and lUuerbach may be said
to have started this 'when they re
vamped old comedies for their "Three
Twins" and "Bright Byes." Tha au
thors of "The Pink Lady" and "Oh.

the best of the Charles H. Hoyt farces,
"A Trip to Chinatown," which opened
at the Columbia last night under the
name "A Winsome Widow."
perhaps It is a good thing that Charlie
Hoyt hap long since joined tha ranks
of those who "go to that bourne from
which no traveler returneth." Surely.
had he been In the Columbia, last night,
ht would have taken a second and per
chance a thlrd'glance at bis program to

reasons for tho airing of more excuses
about "1 have to work late tonight,

About all there la left of the original
Hoyt farce are the names of somo of

It Is evident that Mr. Ziegfeld, when
preparing for the production of "A
Winsome Widow," was unable entirely
to brook away from his annual folly,
and so .he used the Hoyt place merely
as an extremely tenuous inreaa on
which to string nis collection ot gins,

Robert were bosom friends. No wonder
both boys wsre brokenhearted at the
Idea of a separation. But there waa no
way out of the. trouble. Colonel Gra

Robert went back Into the house and
Suma sat gsxlng down the hot, aandy
road that led to the far-off mountains.
As he rose to go ho noticed a strange
figure slipping out of the library door
and away In the grove, but so distressed
was the lad that he took but little no
tice of the man at the time.
"I havo been robbed, robbed of the
month's pay for the men," cried Colo
nel araham just as Suma entered the
room. "I had hundreds of dollars In
a leather bag on my desk here an hour
ago 'how It Is gone."
In a moment all was the wildest con
fusion. Both boys joined In the hunt
and the whole room was pulled to
pieces In the search. No signs of the
bag could be found. Colonel Graham
was In despair. He was a poor man and
had no, means to replace the money,
besides, he might be accused, so he
thought ot taking it himself. For there
were no strangers about that any one
Suddenly Suma remembered the figure
he had seen stealing away as b'e came
up the walk. There was something very
familiar about the white robe the man
wore, now that he came to think of It
Then It occurred to him that It waa a
native of his own tribe who had come
and robbed the colonel. But Bum re
solved to say nothing, but act first.
"If one of my kinsmen has stolen thst
money they will be running away back
to the mountains aa fast as they can,"
he said to himself. And he determined
to follow and get the bag. n

slender figure flitting like the wind
along the way.
"The robber will stop for "the night
at the Rock Spring, I feel sure." he
panted, as he skimmed over the ground.
"A man tires sooner than boy, and I
will get up to him bom."
In an hour he came out of the forest
and Into a clear place where; a spring
gushed out of a large rock. In the
thick grass at one side slept a man
clad In the robes of one of tho moun
tain tribes. At his side lay a small
bag, which Suma at once knew bo
longed to Colonel Oraham and held the
money. Tho robber slept soundly.
. Bums crawled through tho grass
slowly and at last had tha bag In his
hands. Then he slipped noiselessly
back to the path.
It waa just midnight, he knew by he
stars, sq he would have plenty of time
to get back to the town before dawn,
when the robber would likely awake.
Still, the man might wake sooner, so
be set out again at a run, hugging the
bag close to his heart. Back he flew
through the black forest, down across
the marshy jungle, oast the straggling
houses of the lowlands, till at last, just
aa tho dawn flushed the east, he fell
exhausted at Colonel Graham's door.
The colonel heard the fall and came
running down to see what waa the mat
ter. As he opened the door he saw at
his feet a limp, brown figure crumbled
up, snd In its hand the leather bag of
money. He pulled Bums to his feet.
"I follow robber all night and get
money back, colonel,' 'the boy panted.
Then he fell unconscious to the floor. In
a moment the whole Graham family
were rubbing the lad, and the happy
colonel telling Robert the story.
"He Is a brave boy, son," said the
colonel, tenderly, "and shall go to
America with us. I will adopt him
aa my son. He has saved us a great
lots and shall be .a brother to you for
the rest of his Ufa." ' - 1
So delighted Suma woke up to hear
the good news and the Colonel went
back to bis library to lock the money
up in an Iron safe.
