H . It seems Salt Lako is to get all the
H' j"Faust" that is coming. Savago gave
H ius the operatic version of this much-
H ,ly troubled horolno; then somo rol-
Hi llcking roisterers got Into the Grand
Hj iand put Mophisto, Faust and tho girl
H 'through somo exciting paces and now
H 'comes Morrison who has been playing
H 'the devil as Mophisto for lo! these
H many years. I was about to say that
H ,'MorrIson has been appearing In
H ."Faust" from tho timo that tho mem-
H iory of man runneth not to the con-
H -trary, but this, of course, is rather a
H Jroflectlon on tho actor's ago while
H kthoso who frolic with tho footlights
H afo' always 'young. Howover, Fausts
H may como and Fausts may go, but, It
H cannot bo said that Morrison is going
H on forever, because this Is his farewell
H vscason. If thoro lo any Salt Lakor
H twho has not seen Lowis Morrison in
H Faust and thero may bo somo to-
H -day's matinee and tills evening's per-
H .formance are tho only remaining
H chances to sco an actor In a char-
H)j i actor mado almost as famous as Jef-
Hl iforson mado Rip Van Winkle. Every
H' 'electrical dovlco and nppllanco liavo
H 'boon brought into stago requisition to
H Mllustrato the illusions and Intensify
H Uho weird situations with which tho
H drama abounds. Thoso of us who
H "havo scon Lowis Morrison in "Faust"
B and who has not can go again as-
HJ surcd of meeting with somo now fca-
H jturo in realism and stagecraft both
B of which havo seemingly reached
HJ their limits in Morrison'r version of
H the guileless Marguerite.
M When Alberta Gallatin first came
H Zlqnwnrd she brought with her a load
M of Ibsen heaviness rathor too bur-
M donsomo -for her actress shoulders.
M Now .she comes again, and, with a
M well nicanlng attempt at dramatic ver-
M satlllty, gives us something whoso
M airy, lightness still weighs upon her
M liko a heavy load. For, to my notion
fl at least, Miss Gallatin lias nolthcr tho
M subtleties required In Ibsen's
fl "Ghosts," nor tho airy, flippancy with
fl which "Cousin Kato" really attempts
fl to conceal tho depth of her woman's
m jmsslonato feeling.
M , Between tho stories of omission and
fl commission, Miss Gallatin's art is
M ground to unsatisfactorily flno pow-
M der. Whoever guides tho fortunes of
M Miss Gallatin should sco to It that sho
M Is cast for something fitting her dra-
M matlc shoulders with somo degrco of
M closeness. Her company, also, was
m mediocrity itself. Mr. Roger, tho lead-
H ing man, instead of being consumed
H "with tho 11 ro of a lover's passion
H woocd as if ho wero following some
H -cold formula of glvo and take How-
M bvor, it must bo said to tho credit of
H tho actor, his Irish speech had tho de-
H llclous aroma of tho shamrock. How
H ho escaped tho custom house with
H such a cargo of Blarney may never bo
H known. Tho nearest approach to
H characterization, was tho clergyman
H "6f Mr. Magnus, who almost succeeded
! Jn delivering tho clerical goods.
j The great Drury Lano spectacle,
H ''Beauty and tho Beast," caught tho
oyes and cars of Now York for seven
months and that moans something,
on Broadway. It is described as a
gorgeous production, with sumptuous
scenic and costumic Investiture, be
wildering ensembles, armies of pretty
girls and comedians who ralso genu
ine laughter. "Beauty and tho Beast"
will appear at tho Salt Lako theatro
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday
Another Thursday, Friday and Sat
urday attraction is tho farowell ap
pearanco of Madamo Helena Mod
joska, who has always been a favorite
To tho curious minded, tho student,

should provo something of unusual in
At tho Lyric tho "Alcazar Beauties"
did a good business and left tho town
with a stocking full of Salt Lako
Tho Orpheum can now bo said to
havo fairly caught Its strldo and an
other good bill is scheduled for next
week with thoso two veterans, Mr.
and Mrs. Alfred Kelcy heading the
bill with a heart Interest sketch, "A
Talo of a Turkey," This quaint couple
havo been playing in New Orleans for
two weeks and tho press of that city
World's famous female whistler who will appear at
tho Orpheum next week.
In Salt Lako.
Mr. Jules Murray, her manager,
said positively that this is tho last ap
pearanco upon tho American istago
of Mmo. Modjeska. Whilo tho public
Is somewhat) skoptlcal of "farewell
appearances," remembering tho fre
quency with which Pattl mado uso of
tho elastic term, It Is emphatically
announced that Modjeska will keep
tho faith of retirement after this visit.
Well, what gentleman would contra
dict a lady especially when tho lady
Is, as Modjeska Is, a real Countess.
Among tho very Interesting things
bearing rapidly down upon us Is "Par
sifal," tho production which was nov
er seen outsldo of tho Httlo German
town until last season. "Parsifal"
has been tho sourco of moro specula
tive discussion than anything seen on
tho stago during a century.
Is unanimous in tho assertion that
their playlet Is ono of tho best things
on tho circuit. Tho second-liner will
bo that of Froydo Brothers, who havo
crossed tho pond to givo tho U. S.
tho latest pointers In head and hand
balancing. Their turn Is promised to
bo a sensation. Mareena, Nevaro and
Mareena, is another thriller, some
thing along tho same order, never
theless different. They como direct
from tho Los Angeles Orpheum where
they havo been instrumental in tho
shaking loose of tho plaster owing to
tho vociferous delight of tho gods.
Mrs. Alico Shaw, who Is billed ar
"world's greatest fomalo whistler," is
another novelty scheduled to make a
hit. Tho other turns will bo Hender
son and Ross, in a rural novelty
sketch; Median and Manard, "In
sparkling effervesenso of comedy,"
and tho KInodromo with 1,000 feet of I
films devoted to three sets of motion I
pictures of which ono is "A Trip to
tho Moon on a Stovo Pipe."
The Orpheum bill this week Is a
money back proposition for sure.
There aro at least two features on
the program, either of which lulls to v
rest one's ticket buying conscience.
The "Unmasking" Is ono; La Gette,
the ariel gymnast, is the other. Tho
"Unmasking" is a strong tragedy in
two scenes and Mr. Davis and his
company receive no idle flattery when
they take tho house off its feet, as
they aro doing every night.
La Getto does somethings on a
swinging trapeze In a rocking chair
which put the flno edge on nlco bal
ancing. His applausive reception is
recognized appreciation of something
quite out of tho ordinary. Welsh and
Martland, the rubber comedians, aro
as boneless as sunflsh their gro- -j
tesque stunt Is warming tho hands of
tho Orpheum audiences, Klekko and
Travoll aro good In their operatic se
lection. Joe Newman, the Denver
idol, has jumped with both feet on
tho appreciative corns of Salt Lako.
Ho is greeted with a rousing outburst
not of pain but of roynl welcome.
Joseph, your work is smooth and has
tho flno edge.
Hallen and Hays aro doing somo
clever foot-work and can teach some
dancers I havo seen. Tho rush at tho
Orpheum box office this week means
there's something doing on tho stage.

Remembered the Text.
A Httlo Topeka girl came home
from church tho other day and wa.i
asked what tho minister's text was.
"I know it all right," sho asserted.
"Well, repeat It," her questioner de
manded. "Don't bo afraid, and I will
get you a bed quilt," was the astonish
ing answer. Investigation proved that
tho central thought of the sermon had
been "Fear not, and I will send you
a comforter." Kansas City Journal.

Fashion Is so deeply rooted In
tho strongest elements of human na
ture that It cannot be suppressed. It
may bo changed, corrected, educated,
tut nether ridicule, nor reasoning, nor
abuse can destroy It, nor can church,
satirist or cynic turn It aside any moro

Medicinal Value of 'Perfumes.
Most of the perfumes were thous'it
by tho ancients to havo a mediclnU
value. Thj mo was thought to have a
tonic quality and lavender a soothing
one. Patchouli was cheering, jasmine
stimulating, while hellotropo was Irri
tating, unless used In small quantities.
Some people today believe that sandal
is a tonic, and its virtue was known
to tho Greeks, who anointed them
selves with It when they entered tho
Com -t for Ac' 'lies.
Achilles was bemoaning his vulner- '
able heol. "That's nothing," thoy as
sured him, "suppose tho faculty had
dropped you f.om tho eleven for poor
scholarship?" Herewith h' realized
tho danger of death was am trlflo.
