Friends and former parishioners of

everal months ago. Until recently
othlng was heard from him, but it has

I Mrs. Bell has not heard from her hus

she has forgiven him and believes he Is
suffering from overwork and nervous

that Mr. Bell left her penniless is not
true. She is at .present ministering to
humanity at the Door of Hope, East
Los Angeles.
It is not known what action will be
taken at the conference which convenes

Scenes on Board of Trade Noisily
Realistic— Miss Jane Oaker Gives
Excellent Interpretation
of Role
To use a phrase in keeping with the
atmosphere of the play, Wilton Lackaye
in William A. Brady's production of
"The Pit" may be quoted at par. The
play Is not the thing in this case,
but it lives very effectively upon its
atmosphere and the constant interpola
tion of irrelevant business, the latter
alone glvlng^it high rank as a contin
uous vaudeville. . ■ ■ '■ •„'■..'....
In company Wilton Lackaye and his
leading woman, Miss Jane, Oaker, stand
prominent. The others fit very well
Into the picture and there are a few
worth special mention, but no surprises.
Mr.Lackaye Is excellent as Curtis Jad
wini His vitality and the Impression
of tremendous strength of reserve
power which he Is able to convey across
the footlights makes him one of a thou
sand for the place of Frank Norrls'
hero. His methods are strikingly Indi
vidual and his art is carefully wrought
out and strikes true. He Is quiet and
conscientious almost to the point where
it shows. Both he and . Miss Oaker,
in speaking their lines, adopt the "con
versational tone" which has lately be
come so .popular with players. They
strive for the "easy, effective natural
ness of movement and voice," and they
are immensely successful with it.
. Mr. Lackaye is ■ one of the best ac
tors that the Mason has presented for
over a year and he alone makes "The
Pit" worth seeing. Miss Oaker also
deserves praise almost as high. Her
charm, besides being one of mere per
sonality, is distinguished by artistic
instincts which add Invaluable grace
to a role. .
The play has In It much of the sudden
blanching of the cheek of the unfortu
nate stock gambler, who has had the
bad fortune to be playing against the
hero of the story, the muffled revolver
shot— "off left"— the "My God, he has
killed himself," and a measure of "pent
up emotion" for which love Is respon
sible, and the other marks of an "at
mospheric" drama.
The s.tory Is told In the third act
and in reality no more than that is
necessary. The scene of the wheat pit,
a novelty in theatrical affairs, made the
expected hit with the Mason ' first
nlghters and was noisily realistic.
Walter Pennington, A. H. Stuart,
Hale Hamilton and Miss Buelah Wat
son were especially noticeable for the
excellence of their work. The following
notes taken from the program presented
a feature of special interest to the
feminine theatergoer:
"Gowns by Worth, Felix, Mme.
O'Shaughnessy and Hitchcock & Bal
"Among the dresses worn In Acts I
and II are six that took first prize at
the fashion show, held in Madison
Square garden, New Tork city."
The -circus had no appreciable effect
on the attendance at the Belasco
theater last night, for the house was
crowded w,ith an enthusiastic gather
ing that applauded the many fine and
telling points of Haddon Chambers'
comedy. "The Tyranny of Tears."
The Belasco company is particularly
proficient in the presentation of light,
sparkling, effervescent pieces of the sort
that ".The Tyranny of Tears" is such a
splendid specimen, and last night the
players seemed to be keyed up to a point
where they gave one of the most
finished and delightful performances
they have ever offered to their aud
"The Tyranny of Tears" has to .do
with a young husband and wife and a
pert little businesslike private secretary
to the husband— a literary fel
low who talks throughout the play as
though he had either been a great
author or had about made up his mind
to be one. Anyway, he had great need
of just such a- smart little woman as
his private secretary. The early part
of the play disclosed the husband as an
easy going sort of a man, who relin
quished his friends, severed his club as
sociations and generally gave evidences
of a weak nature, simply because his
wife • had the habit of opposing his
wishes, and' she .invariably won her
point by a flow of salty weeps that were
ludicrous from the viewpoint of the
audience,' while they were anything but
this to the husband. : \ '
' But when 'the wife discovered the
little secretary talking to the portrait
of .the husband and saw her give the
carbon print a gentle little friendly
mind, it was a -very, ' very friendly
ocsulatory affair— the big point' in the
play was' reached and the wife's tears
were pitted against the common sense
of the private secretary, backed up by
the .great need of 'the .husband cut free
from the tyrannical lachrymal ducts.
Consumers of . coal, wood or any
fuel other than Gas, have never
experienced the freedom from care
arid worry, as does the , Gas con-
Of course the wife had to go back to
her father, who really didn't want her
a little bit, for she was a living re
minder of her late mother, who had
posaessed very much the same traits
that were so prominent in the make-up
of the daughter.
But in the end everything - was
straightened out to the intense satis
faction of everyone— including the large
audience, who voted "The Tyranny of
Tears" one of the most amusing and
downright diverting: plays that has ever
been given at the Belasco.
It is rather hard to say Just which
Belascotte scored the most substantial
hit, as each of the players concerned
was enormously successful, but the
chief honors undoubtedly belong to
Juliet Crosby and Richard Vivian, ■with
Galbralth and BertHa Blanchard # close
seconds, while that brilliant actor,
Howard Scott, again proved his splen
did capabilities as a character player
of fine attainments. Miss Crosby gava
a beautifully subtle and fllnlshcd inter
pretation of the part of the private sec
retary. She secured her points almost
without the slightest effort, while there
were much force and authority in her
scene with the wife when she discovers
the secretary saying nice, pleasant
things to the picture of the husband.
Vivian really surprised even
those of the audience who were well
aware of his talents by the excellence
of his portrayal of the role of Gunning.
Leading Man Galbraith, with his hair
powdered on the sides to give a literary
touch to his make up, was Galbraith
most of the time — which evidently isn't
Just what Author Chambers had 1 in
mind when he wrote the part. How
ever, the Belasco's leading man was>
fine appearing chap throughout the four
acts of "The Tyranny of Tears," and
even if he did evidence a fondness for
sing-songy articulation at times the
feminine portion of the audience for
gave It— perhaps on account of that
added touch of gray to the temples.
Bertha Blanchard. as the weepy I wife
used the rich tones of her admirable
voice to splendid advantage last night,
and her Mrs. Parbury was easily the
best thing she has done since she
joined the Belasco company.
For a clear cut, accurate, cameo-like
picture of stage life as it is— not as it
is imagined to be, but as it actually
exists, with its humor distinctive and
at times unconscious, its scorn of the
world the other side of the footlights,
and something of its.sordldness as well,
Rose Stahl's impersonation in "The
Chorus' Lady" at tri"». Orpheum this
week is as near perfection as could well
be desired. ■ ■-.: .■';.: °
As Miss Patricia O'Brien she intro
duces the real stage dang, the petty
jealousies, the half pathetic ambition
of the lowest su,per, and the real hu
manity beneath it all as probably no
stage. picture of the stage has ever done
before. Incidentally Miss Stahl has
achieved the distinction of being one of
the few noted actresses from the legiti
mate drama to "make good" in vaude
ville. Not that there have not been others
with probably as much or more talent,
but she has the faculty, so necessary
in the tabloid drama, of getting down
to business at the start, without await
ing until the last couple of lines of
her playet to score her point. The little
play is. not all comedy, but it has a
touch of pathos in it as well, and its
climax Is quite dramatic. It is un
questionably one of the best vaudeville
offerings of the season, so far.
Francis Gerard, strong man, gives
an exhibition of physical development
which is enviable, and shows that his
muscles are real by lifting a few men
and some heavy looking apparatus.
Dan Quinlan and Kellar Mack have a
comedy talking skit "Jest Fun" which
is about average. Frank and Harry
Brown, "two real Indian college boys,"
open the bill with some singing and
rapid crayon work. Nina Morris in
"A Friend's Advice," Howard arid
North in "Those Were the Happy
Days," the Avon Comedy Four, Mr.
and Mrs. Frank Allison in "Minnie
From Minnesota," and motion pictures
complete a good all round bill.

Henry C. Bollman and Qua Van de
Gorbort Engage In Shooting Affray
Because of Barking Dog— Neither
Is Seriously Hurt ;V:v',-.
A duel on the Burbank road between
an old farmer and an excited youth
Sunday night resulted yesterday In the
arrest of Henry C. Bollman and the
detention of Gus Van de Gorbort at the
Burbank hospital. . .
Bollman came to Los Angeles early
yesterday morning and complained at
the district attorney's office that he had
been in danger of his life through the
caprice of a bad boy.
According to Bollman' s story Van de
Gorbort, the" youth, was riding past the
Bollman home , Sunday evening when
Bollman's dog barked at the horse and
the boy struck the dog with a heavy
riding whip. . '■ .'■
An -argument ensued and Bollman
alleges Gorbort drew a revolver and
fired three shots 'at him. None of the
shots were effective, and the old man
went to his house, secured. a shotgun
and returning fired- in a general direc
tion at the horse and boy.
After filing his complaint Bollman
was directed to the office of a. Justice
of the peace, and swore out a -warrant
for the arrest of the lad.
Constable Cline . telephoned to the
authorities at Burbank to hold the
youth until . he could be arrested and
received an answer that the boy had
already sworn out a warrant for the
arrest of Bollman.
Bollman was arrested upon this in
formation and sent to jail until his
friends furnish bond for him.
Van de Gorbort is at the Burbank
hospital under the care of surgeons. It
is said that half a dozen of the shotgun
pellets struck him in the face, inflicting
painful injuries.
J. R. Watson Sustains Fracture of
Both Legs While Attempting to
Regain Control of Cage
In. an attempt to reach the controller
of a runaway elevator at the Coulter
dry goods store yesterday afternoon
J. R. Watson, the operator, made a
desperate leap through the open door
way and succeeded In landing within
the cage but not soon enough to pre
vent both legs being fractured.
As the slowly moving cage broke
Watson's left leg he reached the con
troller, but was not in time to save his
other leg from being mangled and the
bones fractured. With one cry of
agony, Watson brought the elevator to
a stop and reversed the controller.
When he reached the first floor he was
barely conscious enough to stop the
cage and then fainted.
According to Watson's story, he be
came thirsty and left the cage for an
Instant to get a drink, of water. When
his attention was next called to the
elevator It was slowly ascending.
Clerks in the store who had heard
his frantic cries lifted him from tins
cage and had him removed to the re
ceiving hospital. He was sent to the
Good Samaritan hospital later, where
It Is deemed probable that one, if not
both, of his legs will be amputated.
Watson is 50 years old, and with his
wife and child resides at 111 South
Figueroa street.
Chamberlain's Collr, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy Never
Twenty years ago Mr. Geo. W. Brock
discovered that Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy was a
quick and safe cure for bowel com
plaints. "During all of these years," he
says, "I have used it and recommended
it many times and the results have
never yet disappointed me." Mr. Brock
is publisher of the Aberdeen, Md., En
terprise. This is the universal experi
ence of all who rely upon this remedy.
It can always be depended upon even
in the most severe and dangerous cases.
It Is equally valuable for the children
and adults. When reduced with water
and sweetened it is pleasant to take.
For sale by all leading druggists.
Advance Information
If you have been past the corner of sth and Broadway lately, you cannot fail to have noticed
the finished air that the sth Street Store is assuming. The awnings are up now; the signs
have been placed— the handsomest signs on the street, too. Of course, you don't buy the
signs and are not especially interested in them; still they are indicative in a general way of the
goodness of the store itself — just as on first sight a man is judged by his outward appearance.
The front entrance is finished, too. The doors are new, original and beautifully attractive.
Other merchants are finding in that door arrangement a decided improvement over any* ,
thing heretofore tried.
Information Department V
This Department is to be a special feature. A bright, clever, engaging woman is at the head
of it. She is absolutely at your service and will tell you anything you want to know. She
will answer all kinds of questions about this establishment and give you information of any
kind about the city and surrounding towns — where to go; how long it takes; how much it
costs; what you see; how to go to this place; what is raised in that locality; where this church
is, or that tract; this theater or that restaurant. In fact, anything of any kind which you are
in doubt about, ask this office, either in person or through the phone. Both phones 874. <
The Pit,
Right at the front entrance you will find a circular counter devoted every day to the sale of
different merchandise. Always "Something Doing" — always some merchandise ridiculously
low priced. We have christened this space "The Pit" from its circular shape; from the
crowds that will be attracted by the merchandise; from the active trading which will take
place there and the general similarity of this "Pit" to the pits in the stock "exchahges." Unlike
these exchange pits, however, sales here will be actual sales. Values at this particular spot
will be real and big. The trading will always be on a falling market. You will hear much ,
of this Pit in days to come. This will serve to introduce it to you.
