Sothsrn's and Julia Marlowe's Shakes
pearean production! at the Belasco
Theater, Mile Marlowe would get the
honors (or her delightful acting for
the first four days of the week. Her
Beatrice, Katherlne. Juliet, and Viola
were superb and proved her to be
America's foremost actress In her line.
In the first four nlavs Mr. Kothern
showed his histrionic ability, master-
zuiiy actlns; Benedict, Potruchlo,
Romeo, and Malvollo.
But last nlirht, when "The Mrrchant
of Venice" was nresented Mr. Sothern
took the greater share of the honors
in nis characterisation of Hhylock,

two sides to the grasping Jew, the
agjvrness for merclnary gain and the
deep.seated love for his daughter and
his race, with his fine touches of

home with a Christian.
Wins Sympathy for Shyiock.
Shyiock Is Mr. Sothern's master
piece. He Is powerful, finished, capa
ble, drawing the fine lines with un
equaled finish, in the scene outside his
house by the bridge, when he and his
friends are unable to locate the fleeing
daughter, one can but sympathise with
his emotions. Then, In the court room,
when he Is about to exact the penalty
or his bond a pound of flesh cut from
Antonio he la at his best, the lust for
gold turning to a greed for revenge,
eager for Antonio to pay the penalty
that will cost his Ufs.
Miss Marlowe played Portia, winsome,
sweet, and clever, brilliantly assuming
the role of a learned doctor In the court
scene, where shs saves Antonio's Ufs
with her fins point In law. Bassanlo
was excellently played by Frederlok
Lewis. Hs makes an ardent suitor for
Portia's hand and a true friend to An
tonio. Mr. Lewis received numerous
curtain calls with Miss Marlowe.
Is Brilliant Production.
Sidney Mather makes an Ideal An
tonio, the dignified and graceful mer
chant who loses all his wealth by ship
wreck. P. J. Kelly Is Salanlo; Mllano
Tllden, Balarlno, and Walter Connolly,
Lorenso, with rare ability. Malcolm
Bradley played Old Oobbo, a character
bit, and Rowland Buckstone, Launcelot
Qobbo, his son, admirably.
"The Merchant of Venice" Is the most
brilliant production, from a scenlo
standpoint, that yet has been presented
by the Sothern-Marlowe company. The
street scenes of Vsnlce and the court
room scene were most notable. The
costumes wsre gorgeous.
Widow Is Beneficiary.
Mrs. Clara Rassbach Is named as the

To be purchased and paid for by The Washington Times.
The ads in the classified advertising columns of The Washington Times are "little nuggets
of gold" they contain money-making, money-saving news in wonderful abundance. We want
every reader of our news columns to read the classified advertising columns, for we want you to
know of the many unusual opportunities to be found there; so we have devised a plan to draw
your attention to them.
Beginning today, December 7, and continuing until further notice, we will scat
ter through the columns of the classified pages a series of separate sentences which will not
be parts of any of the advertisements. You are to choose ONE WORD from each of these
sentences and put all the chosen words together to form a well-known proverb which we have
hidden in the sentences.
For instance take the proverb "Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today." It
contains 10 words; so you would find ten sentences scattered through the classified advertising
columns, from EACH of which you will choose ONE word to form the proverb. A new proverb
will be thus hidden away every day. .
Each day two pairs of reserved seat tickets to Chase's Theater will be awarded for correct
solutions. 1st prize, two tickets; 2d prize, two tickets.
Winners' names will be published each day, and they will also be notified by mail. Tickets
will be delivered only upon presentation of letter of notification, at The Times office, Room
727, Munsey Building.
CONTEST BEGINS TODAY
You will find it wonderfully entertaining, educational, and practically helpful

Thousands of Pounds of Food
Lost in Vicinity, Says
That there are thousands of pounds
of food going to waste that can be pro
cured for the picking is the contention
of Fred J, Braendle, translator In the
United States Pension Office. Mr.
Brsendle refers to the mushrooms that
spring up after every rain on the farm
lands of Virginia and Maryland.
Mushrooms on the menu of a metro
politan restsurant are luxuries that few
can afford, and yet the same mushrcoms
grow practically everywhere and can
be had for the picking, he says.
After every rain the vaueys and sort
spots in Virginia and Maryland appear
to be studded with mushrooms.
