NE night Bobby Jones put his
head out of his box and the
sight which met his eyes
caused him to staro so hard
that his eyes nearly popped out of their
sockets. There In her corner sat Dru-,

again, and while he could make out
that they were talking In very low
tones, he could not hear a word they
said. Several nights he looked out
and saw the same thing, and while he
did not have the least Idea what was
happening, he felt ho was not wanted,
and slipped down into his bpx. wonder

"Did you call to me, Drusllla?"
"Yes." answered Drusllla. "I wanted

The Quaker Girl," as Musical: C6rjrp&
Has a Novelty, Says JuliaMurMk
Introduction of Members of

" Innovation for Audiences.
MONG the oueer methods of
earning one's living chronicled
in the last census report is
given the task of "namlni- nar-
lor and sleeping cars," and it appears
therein that at least one woman makes
a very lucrative stipend by thinking tip
new ana euphonious names for the
latest product of the Pullman Company.
vny not apply this to musical come
dies? During the past decade there have
been several hundred, perhaps a thou
sand, musical shows produced, and It
would be safe to say that at least one
quarter of these were either "Widows'
or "Girls." Think over the na-nes of
the successful musical pieces and
how many of them contained either of
H1?86 nan,e" nd you'll see why
this appeal for something new in th
lino of nomenclature.
This week Washington has two of fh
"Girls." with one of the "Widows,"
scheduled for next week. But, without
drawing any comparison between the
productions at the Columbia and tho
National, I would like to say that if all
the musical comedies Washington sees
during the present season are as clever
and filled with music as lilting and
catchy as the two "Girls" now in town,
tho National Capital will be very, very
Yesterday it was "The Sunshine Girl." '
I told you about; today It is "The
Quaker Girl." 8trange!y enough, both
are London Gaiety productions, al-
inougn ny different authors, and both
are extremely captivating, although
pitcned in different ke7s.
Almost as usual as the naming of tho
musical pieces had come the choice of
the locales for them. If in America tho
play was usually laid along the Gay
White Way so as to permit of a back
drop showing Times Square, ablaze
with light, or the Interior of some myth
ical cafe. If abroad, Paris or 4he Ri
viera, with perhaps Just a flash of
Vienna or London, was the place gen

But, without departing from the beat

Into their piece a touch of the novel in

The innovation lies not so much in

all bad ones when they die as in the
Introduction of Quakers into a musical
piece. The idea at flrct would seem to
be an anachronism, particularly when
ono adds that the music throughout a
large part of the piece follows the sober,
drab motif of the "Friends." But the
result Is delightful.
The musical score to which the Quakers
enter In the first act. Prudence's simple,
dainty plaintive llttlo song, "A Quaker
Girl," the theme of which runs through
the entire piece; "The Bad Boy and the
Good Girl," and the finale to the first
act where the Quaker girl, who has so
far fallen from the path of rectitude as
to touch a glass of champagne. Is cast
off by those of her faith and told to
go to Paris with the newcomers all

after all. is far from being lacking in
Story of Comedy
Above the Average.
The story of "The Quaker Girl" is a
trifle more apparent than that of the
average musical comedy. Into a quiet

part by Quakers, come an exiled Bonn

princess and the Englishman are mar
ried and, during the celebration of the
wedding Prudence, one of the little Quak
er girls, drinks .the fatal glass of cham
pagne which causes her people to cast
her off and she goes to Paris with her
newly found friends. '
At tho French capital she accepts
employment as a mannlkln in the es
tabllshment ot Madame Blum, a
modiste, and there starts a new mode
consistent with her earlier life. The
police get on the trail of the princess,
however, and to save her friend Pru
dence promises to go to a ball given
by Prince Carlo, despite tho fact that
she has previously promised Tony, her
lover, that she would not go. The
discovery of this provides an extreme
ly dramatic curtain for the second act.
The third act takes place at the
prince's ball, a. gorgeously gowned af
fair which provoked an involuntary
round of applause from tho audience.
Here the loose strings of tho comedy
are gathered up and tho whole affair
ends happily for everyone concerned.
The honors of the performance! are
about evenly divided between MlssIna
