Critic Prefers Eastern Music
al Shows to Those Origi
nated in West.
Coming from the city of wind, canned
beef, and political conventions, the musl.
cat comedy of "Louisiana Lou," which
Is said lo have enjoyed a run of ovr
a year In the La Salle Theater, Chicago,
and which Is being brought East to
demonstrate to theatergoers that a musl
csl comedy may be Interesting, yet frco
irom anything that Is suggestive or
offensive, opened lust evening at tho
Songs for the play were written by
Addison Burkiiardt snd Frederick Don
aghy, music by Ben Jerome; It wss
staged by Frank Hmithson, and the
dances were arranged by Charlea Mast,
of the La Salle Opera House, Chicago.
For a year or more the name and fame
of this "Louisiana Lou" person has been
wafted to us from the West. We have
been told that It was tho greatest show
ever; that tho crowd of Jolly people who
help to make It so nrc the best over;
that tho costumes which they wear In
the two acts were the finest ever, and
that the music shared with these other
ingredients to make "Louisiana Lou" a
play worth waiting a whole year to see,
even If the children went without shoes,
and there was no cream for tho coffee.
As t Mniical Comedy,
It's g Thing That Isn't.
Well, wc have aecn It, and comparing
It with soma of the other musical
comedies that have visited our fair
little city, we can hold our right hands
up and declare that we prefer the
hitter. "Louisiana I,ou" Is all right
as a theatrlcnl production but as a
musical comedy well, that Is ono thing
which It Isn't.
One watches through tho turns and
twists of the nncmlo storjy. one turns
an ear toward the tuneful but never
catchy music; the eye la dlled with the
pleasant display of costumes (if one u
not seated too near the ntagc); ono
watches the twirling of shapel llmhs
and the swaying of graceful bodies,
with toes pointing heavenward, but
when the varied and several exciting
things have been placed before one.
ihn attention turns to lust two per
sons, tho chic and charming Utile lady'

Miss Cecelia Moy, and Mr. von Bulow,

ly Imbued himself with the character

Carr Creation Is
Lik Wtrlcld Character.
In the play he is never lost sight of
for a single minute, even though he
does not happen to be on tho stage
The Carr creation Is so thoroughly im
pressive that without him all Interest
in the awry seems lo disappear, nnd
there la always eager expectancy for
his return. Lldoffskl. aa Carr makes
it. Is a quiet, unassuming old Jew, ex
ceedingly like Warfield In "The Music

work of making happiness In tho midst
of much confusion, and makes his char

that It succeeds In not being lost In
the whirlpool of music, dancing, and

DeVolc Is good looking, and talented.

in a role that Is not exacting, she forces
a consideration that Is rarely attained
In a produclon so light and frivolous

a big. noisy, coon-shouting rag dancing
singer, a very Joyous, very energetic,
and verv demonstrative performer, and
probably had her admirers last evening.

which greeted her appearances.
A large, rcsonunt voice enables her
to make effective the several ragtlmw
songs that go tp make up tho play, and
despite her generous proportions, she

Eleanoro Henry Is a demure Delia,
and Is charming, especially In the
kaleidoscopic scenes. She sings prettily,
as well. She Is light and easy upon
her feet, and her dancing adds charm
to her Impersonation. Burrell Barba
Mtla gives a good examplo of the sun
dodging youth who finally meets his
charmer In the cheerful lu. He sings
well, and dances nimbly, and received
a generous share of applause. Robert
O'Connor Is seen In the part of a
nogua duke, and his Interpretation of
the part Is artistic. There are others
In the cast who are deserving of more
praise than Is tho piece Itself.
And Stage NoveltiM.
Manager Askin Is lo he congratulated
upon the handsome fashion In which
he has mounted "Louslana Lou" and
for the hnndsome costumes, which,
though a trifle worn from many nights'
use, are picturesque and novel. There
are one or two novelties In "Louisiana
Lou," notably the confetti shower at
the close of the first act, when each
member of the company, armed with
serpentine confetti, throws It to the au
dience. The wild scramble for the paper
ribbon which ensues, serves to act as
h mild antidote to the ropoiiflc effect
of the first act. JULIA MURDOCK.

Drusllla had a new dress every day,
and a new hat, too. Her little mother

and aent her to parties and teas, and
Drusllla grew very vain; at least, that
was tho way it seemed to Bobby Jones.
At night, when they wero all alone,
she talked about nothing but her beau

Just could not wear old-fashioned
clothes," she told Bobby, one night.
"That paper Doll has not had any
thing new' since 1 knew her. When I
see her big sleeves and funny big
skirts I feel like laughing."
"Perhaps ahe doesn't know they are
old-fashioned," said Bobby. "If she
doesn't, she docs not cure. I am sure
she always looks nice."
"Well, Bobby Jones, If you think that
paper doll looks nice In those old
dresses, that shows that you do not

her toys, nnd even Drusllla.' with all her
new clothes, failed to amuse her.
"I'll tell you what we will do." said
her mother, "wc will play paper dolls,
und I will show you how to make
clothes for the one you have."
They got out the paste and a box of
pretty papers and lace, und sat at a

There were blinds ulso, they wero made

Then tho big mother made curtains
