SOCIETY MELODRAMA WEEK
END OFFERING AT MASON
English Lord and Organ Grinder Fur.
nish Necessary Complications
for a Play of the Convert*
Paul Qilmore and hl« company enter
tained an. enthusiastic audience last
evening at the Manon opera house by
presenting "The Mummy and the Hum
ming nird." As a society melodrama
the play rnnkg next to "Raffles" In the
lint of productions which hnve been
seen nt this theater the present season.
Although the Impossible situations
make the play what It Is, it Is a novelty
In many reßpects. A common organ
grinder Is entertained by nn English
lord, and although the two do not
speak the snme language the latter
awakes to the fact that the vendetta
of the former has for Its object the
same man who is attempting to steal
the lord's wife. The object of the ven
detta is the Humming rßdi, and the
lord In the Mummy, and that is the
basis for tho play and the far-fetched
title. : - ; ■'■"■
The acting was for the most part
conventional. Paul Gllmore gave a
very enjoyable perfortnance of the
Mummy. His work is at all times con
scientious and sincere and shows the
results of Intelligent study. In the
role of Gulseppe, the organ grinder,
John Martin achieves considerable suc
cess, although the part is much over
drawn. He reads his lines in a con
vincing manner and his action is well
timed. ■>-."»:'% I
Theodore Terry was cast for the role
of Signor D" Orelll, the Humming Bird,
and in an unpleasant part he made a
distinct impression. While there was
nothing extraordinary in the art dis
played by the remainder of the com
pany they held up well their portion of
the scones. *
The smaller characters were well
cast, which is a notable feature for a
second company. Each little "bit,"
such as Thomas, the servant, was given
in a manner which showed careful
stage direction and conscientious work
on the part of the performer.
"THE MERCHANT OF VENICE"
Ben Greet Players Please In Old.Tlme
At the Temple auditorium last even
ing the Ben Greet players gave an en
joyable presentation of Shakespeare's
drama, , "The Merchant of Venice."
According to the custom of this com
pany they gave the play as nearly as
possible after the manner In which It
was originally given. Only one short
scene and some thirty other lines were
omitted from the seventeenth century
The music, which was a conspicuous
feature of the presentation, flavored of
the Elizabethan period, of which the
fragments, "Mall Sims" and "Packing
ton's Pond," are well known.
Although the particular forte of Ben
Greet lies in the lighter roles of Shake
speare, he makes an acceptable Shy
lock. While his characterization of the
Jew was nothing novel, at the same time
it waa Intelligently conceived and ad
In the role of Bassanio, the friend or
the unfortunate Antonio, John Sayer
Crawley deserves great praise for his
Leonard Shepherd played the part of
Antonio satisfactorily. -

Head. Her dark beauty was well
suited to her role, and she gave to this

Rogers made the piano parts Just what
they should be. In the Grieg sonata
for piano and violin she and Mr.
Krauss were especially successful, for
they gave a poetic interpretation. At
its close they were insistently recalled.
The last ■ number, a trio by the Ger
man composer, Gernsheim, was the of
fering I that was most demonstratively
received. This exquisite work gave Mr.
Opid an opportunity to reveal his mas
tery of the violoncello. Its four move
ments were splendidly given and the
audience manifested most Intense in
terest In the composition, which is too
little known by concert-goers. ' • '

call for aid while he clutched at his
collar with emaciated hands for air.
