BLACKWODDIANS SWITCH
FROM DRAMA TO MUSIC
'Forty-Five Minutes from Broad
way' Charmingly Done by
Belasco Players
SHIRLEY OLYMPIUS
One of the chief features of "Forty
five Minutes from Broadway," pro
duced at tho Belasco theater last night.
Is that it shows the exceptional versa
tility of members of Manager John
Blaekwoods aggregation of players.
It Ib a rather far cry from drama to
music. Hence every Blackwoodlan
rhould be highly commended for his
or her efforts in George M. Cohan's
famous musical play success. Evident
ly tho writer's opinion Is shared by a
great many theatergoers of Los An
geles, for a capacity house applauded
the various members of the cast.
"Forty-flvo Minutes from Broadway
proved a delightful surprise and a re
freshing diversion.
Of individual lilts there were many.
Charles Giblyn, who assumed tho role
of Kid Burns, made famous by Victor
Mooro, took tho part In a totally sat
isfactory manner. Mr. Giblyn, who
was forced to learn the rapid-fire
slangy lines of tho dopester In two days,
deserves praise for his accomplish
ment, but greater commendation 101
tim Knii';i<ii excellence <>l nut porrorni
ance throughout. His rendition of the
famous "Forty-five Minutes from
Broadway" song was one of the hits
of the piece.
Florence Oakley was charming as
Mary. Her singing and her excel
lent acting make the play delightful.
Charles Ruggles and pretty, auburn
haired Marguerite Levoridgo made a
hit when they sang a duet, "Con™
Along, Mandy." The beauty of tho
girl combined with Mr. Uuggles 1 per
sonality and handsomeness, were com
mented on by everybody. Beth Tayor
as Flora Dora Dean, a footlight fav
orite, was her dainty, pretty Ingenue
self while Adcle Farrington as Mrs.
David Dean was a perfect 'stage
mother. Richard Vivian, Tom Bennet
Ida Lewis, Frank Camp and othei s In
tho cast were excellent. Lewis S.
Stone who was cast for Kid Burns
was conspicuous by his absence. Mr.
Stone is laid up with a sprained back.
BOFor lS pua r lo l'enjoyment nothing will
servo better than the Belasco produc
tion of "Forty-five Minutes from
Broadway."
NEW BILL AT THE ORPHEUM
FULL OF MERITORIOUS ACTS
Each of the four new acts P»WUlted
yesterday afternoon at the Urpheum
the-iter is meritorious. Taken In
conjunction with the four holdover,
they make, up a vaudeville bill full of
music, sparkling comedy, a bit of
homely philosophy, some pathos and
""wm M° rtcressy and Blanche Dayne
with their associate players Present
ing "The Wyoming Whoop 11 are billed
us the headlines. The btlltoi[to cor
rect! The playlet Is replete with lines
which one cares to remember. A bit
of sentiment creeps In every now and
then as the playlet progresses, be
fore one is ready to dab a handker
chief to one's eyes some witty, wtse or
comical remark turns the c"m"3 "f
one's mouth upward and the tears are
dispelled by a smile. Mr. Creasy has
written many sketches, but few bet
ter than or equal to "The Wyoming
Loekwood and Paul Mac-
Carty in a musical number which at
Its opening promises a great deal be
cause of the unique position assumed
by the entertainers, are worth while.
Miss Lock wood's song about "Marys
Calves" has Just enough spice In it to
make it go big. Miss Loekwood has
a fetching way about her and Mr.
MacCarty is handsome, can sing and
Is graceful in a sort of Imitation "rag
and hop-sktp-and-Jump dance.
It is the final number of the Night
Birds" act which makes the turn go.
Gus Edwards is nothing if not orig
inal. He proves it in perching his
chorus on platforms behind a drop.
Through apertures in the drop the
heads of the chorus are thrust to rep
resent birds perched on a telegraph
wire The effect is unusual and at
tractive. The blrdliko kissing business
of the chorus adds greatly to the ef
fectiveness of the ensemble. Nellie
Brewster, who apparently is leading
woman of the troupe, is pretty enough
and has a clear voice, but her tones
are not particularly pleasing. It seems
her voice lacks a certain sympathetic
quality, caused possibly from strain
ing, overworking or singing beyond
her vocal range. The opening of the
net Is unusual. Tho chorus men ap
pear in various parts of the house
with telephones and sing a refrain
about "I Won't Bo Home to Dinner."
Of "By the Light of the Silvery Moon"
all one may say is that familiarity
breeds contempt.
Laneton, Lucler and company, pre
senting "A Fool's Errand," do not
make clear what the errand la, but do
succeed in getting applause and caus
ing some laughter.
The Piequays made a bigger hit yes
terday than at any time last week.
DRINK PURITAS
DISTILLED WATER
It Is the Only Pure, Wholesome,
Healthful, Reliable Drinking
Water to Be Had in Los
Angeles
To drink Puritas Distilled Water
regularly is not a fad. Thousands of
customers who have used Purltas for
many years will testify to this.
It is a health requirement. Pure
water is Just as essential to healthful
living as pure food. You will realize
this if you think about it a little.
Our city water contains ennsld*rahle
amount! of minerals. These are entirely dls-
Bnlved In the water and cannot bn n-moveil
from It by a filter or any mechanic ile
vice. Such la the case with most *he
water In Southern California. . lowa
through a highly mineralized soil ani nat
urally absorbs the minerals In It.
The only way to remove such Impurities
Is by distillation —that Is. by turnlnc the
water Into steam. In this process the Im
pure parts of the water are deposited as
solids in the boiler. The pure part—that
Is, th« steam —Is then condensed Into wa
ter —'pure water.
Roughly speaking, thU Is exactly the pro
cess through which Purltas Is put. But we
distill It twice, because two distillations are
necessary to remove all Impurities.
Purltas Is aerated with pura ozone, se
cured by passing a current of electricity
through filtered air. ■
We bottle Purltas In clean glass demi
johns. This work Is so carefully don* that
the water reaches you with all Its whole
dome purity Intact.
Puritan Is inexpensive—5 gallons cost but
■li)c delivered within the old city boundary
lines. At points beyond this the price Is a
trine more, owing to the long haul. Reg
ular Puritas customers purchase Coupon
Hooks, thereby materially reducing th» ex
"when you telephone, ask about theaa.

their former triumphs. Walsh, Lynch

From a musical standpoint Manager
Workman of tho Princess is offering
an exceptionally good production to
his patrons this week in "The New-
York Girl." The piece In a musical
comedy, new to Loh Angeles, and pos
sesses snap and ginger from start to
finish.
The title rol« Is filled by Mlnta Dur
fee In an admirable manner. She adds
to the musical excellence of the affair
by singing "Hello Mr. Moon Man,"
backed up by a prettily fcowned chor
us. Pleasing electrical effects are In
troduced showing different members
of the company astride the crescent.
The general effect is excellent enough
to draw several encores. A military
march number led by Vera Blair Stan
ley Is also one of the features, show
ing off the shnpeliness or the merry,
merry. "Whoop I,a La" is rendered In
B COtnle fashion by Robcoo Arbuckle,
who Is a German amateur waiter,
beating his way through the world
with a Jew partner, Fred Ardath.
The adventures of the two wtth the
bold New York girl furnish the fun
in the play.

Murjorle Rambeau, leading woman at
tho Burbank, has some heavy work cut
out for her this week in preparing to
play the part of Juanlta In "The Rose
of the Rancho." She has to learn ao
play the guitar, sing a song In Spanish,
do a Spanish dance, learn a number of
Spanish phrases and assume the gen
eral manner and walk of a senorita.
The same applies, In a lesser degree, to
nearly all the members of the Burbank
company, but the most of them have
lived in Los Angeles for so long that it
comes natural. Louise Royce, Harry
Mestayer, Willis Marks, Agnes Lee and
H. S. Duffleld all have unusual char
acters to portray. Frederic Belasco be
gan rehearsals of the big production
yesterday, and the week will be one
of the busiest the Burbank ever has
known, not excepting even the rehear
sal of "Brewster's Millions."
Alphin and Fargo yesterday sprung
sensation yesterday in presenting their
new company in "In Gay Paree."
As the name implies, the comedy is
a French potpourri of comedy and
melody on the Weber and Fields or
der. Monte Carter, the Hebrew com
edian, is a most excruciatingly funny
fellow. He manages to obtain a large
amount of comedy out of hia charac
ter. His work is clean cut and polished
and he is sure to become an immense
favorite.
Pete Gerald and Max Stelnle are ex
cellent Germans and mnke ideal foils
for Carter. Anna H. Golde returned
and was received with a big ovation
and many floral pieces. Tracy Mc-
Dermot, the new leading man, pos
sesses a voice of exceeding sweetness
and his songs called for numerous en
cores. Mattie Hyde was excellent in
a small character part. Leonard Bris
bane and Mable Bunyea were as usual
admirably cast and did all that was
expected of them. The chorus with
many new faces presented ten big
singing and dancinj novelties.
The first of tho series of popula priced
Tuesday matinees inaugurated with the
opening of the Charles King stock com
pany will be given this afternoon at the
Grand.

Music Notes
Florence Bosard Lawrence
CARLETON CHASE, billed as the
fashion plate of vaudeville, is the
feature of the newcomers at
Levy's this week. His long engage
ment with Kolb and Dill at the Majes
tic last summer, made him a familiar
figure to amusement-seekers, and he
received a cordial greeting when he
made his appearance yesterday after
noon at Levy's. Mr. Chase has a spirit
ed manner, a presence which makes a
favorable impression, and sings songs
well adapted to his vocal powers. His
selections yesterday won much ap
plause for him. and in "The bouthein
Rose," "Mary Took the Calves to the
Dairy Show" and "That Mesmerizing
MendelMOhn Song," he achieved a dis
tinct success with his listeners.
Other newcomers to the bill were
three instrumental artists, playing
flute harp and violin. The group is
announced as the Ohelman trio and
with characteristic costume*, and rep
resentative musical selections, the
members of the trio present a good
act which, however, would be Im
proved with the introduction of more
action, and sprlghtliness.
The Kristoffl trio, already familiar to
the patrons of Levy's cafe sings the
popular Italian song, »Funleula-Fun
icula " a selection from Faust, and
some' popular folk songs of our own
country and the Hungarian dancers
introduce now features in the Magyar
dances which they give.
Tracie Morrow, whose soprano solos
were B feature of last week, has de
voted her program this week to those
quaint, old-fashioned airs like silver
Threads Among the Gold," "Annie
Laurie," and others with just OM Av
rliti selection to display the brilliant
quality of her vole*.
