occasion for this comedy. William
Ames. a New York lawyer around
his forties, finds himself stranded in
a wayside railroad station with Isa

than that they should enter in con

by loss of sleep-and lack of food.
So they pass the night together in

Much may be learned In ten hours

Ames and Isabel. For instance, they
progress far enough to quarrel, which
may be termed some distance. even

Sir Harry Lauder
Charms At Poli's
Although Harry Lauder has been
knighted dame his last appearance
here, he was long ago elevated to
the nobility and dubbed the prince
of entertainers by his Washington
admirers. His reception at Poll's last
night was an honest tribute of af
fection and admiration queh is sel
dom accorded to any of his profes
sion. Bong after song was demand
ed and given until finally Sir Harry
demanded, in mock indignation
which arkled with that rich Cale
donian brr, "HaS ye na hame" to
Not only is Harry Lauder a great
singer, but a naster of characteriza
tion as well. Every number was
presented in different costume with
different setting; each character was
sharply defined with a skill little
short of genius.
His opening number, a tribute to
his American audiences, was "I
Know a Lassie Out in 0-hio," and
was followed by that hauntingly
sweet, "O'er the Hill ta Ardentiny,"
relating the home-love of a shepherd.
Then came "When I Was Twenty.
One,' in which he appeared as an
old man with a typical cough
("hoast," Sir Harry would no doubt
call it on the other side), who re
lates his prowess as a feminine
charmer in his youth.
It was too his skillful rendition of
"Saftest of the Family." one of the
more familiar of the Lauderisms, to
which many were inclined to give
first honors. In this he appears as
the vilage dolt, a dull scholar Indeed,
but canny inn his Scottish way. But
it was in "There Is Somebody Walt.
ing For Me," the sentimental ballad
of a British tar, that developed the
most haunting melody and it was in
this that the audience, from the for
sign diplomatic attaches in the boxes
to the real music lovers back in the
soeond balcony, joined in with hearty
"I Think I'll Get Wed in the Sum.
mertime" and "Hame of Mine" con
eluded the program, but was followed
by an extemporaneous talk by Lauder
in the course of which he delivered
a message on the gospel of optimism
and happiness that seemed to come
from the heart. It carried with it
a particular appeal to Washington
and its coming disarmament confer'
ence. With Lauder leading from the
stage, "The Star Sprangled Bannre,"
his tribute to the country which has
had so much to do with his success,
was sung by the audience.
Several vaudeville acts which pre
ceded Lauder's appearance, including
The Clintons, in novelty athleticx;
Cleo Gascoigne, the dimunitive prima

between Maria. the ward of Padre
Francolon, and Jimmie Taylor, a
young chap who buys from the 1W.

Jimmie is about to leave for a week's
trip to the big city. He proposes to
Maria and is almost accepted. Padre
agrees to the match. Jimmie is not
given a final answer. but is told to
bide his time, so the young chap
leaves. The Padre also departs from
the Mission to visit, leaving only
Maria and Blue Quail, an Indian
squaw in the mission house.
The Blue Quall, who talks exactly

lips. begins to clear away the supper
dishes. Then comes into the Mission.

innocent girls gave him food and
bathed his forehead, which had been
grased with a bullet. The first act
ends with "The Mad Dog," thankless

shows Maria with clothes disheveled
and hair disarranged. She is attered
by Blue Quail. "The Mad Dog" as
left, but not without doing damage to
the girl. A few minutes later the
sheriff appears and Maria urges him
to find the convict and kill him.
Several hours later, the "Dog." an

sleep after reaching Mexico and could
only relieve his conscience by return

shoots the "Dog." Her shot is poor
and the convict does not die.
