w admiration for a dramatic offering of
tho highest and best influence in the
religious and secular elements In each
community. Prominent divines have

ring effect on the better senses as an
iinpresslvo sermon; while oven the
blase ilieatrc goer Is enthralled by the
gorgeous magnificence of tho pictures
' of Rome's wealth and luxury under
the dark rule of Nero and thrilled by

A GOOD COCKTAIL.
Like u good cocktail, an entertain
ing vaudeville snould be put together
some music, a spoonful of burlesque,
a dash of the spectacular, a couplo
of lumps of novelty, and then add
two lingers of a standard brand com
edy, and, viola, mon chore, you have
a drink fit for tho gods.
The Orphoum bill for the coming
week should prove a cocktail all
right, each article checking- with the
receipt, and it is good to know that
none who quaff this beverage of en
tertainment wiii ride in the wagon
uid answer to tho charge of "Drunk
First on the list will be Vasco,
mown all over tho world as "tho
mad musician," who comes from Lon
don via Austrlalla and, during tho
course of his act, plays twenty-seven in
struments. There Is not a moment wast
ed while he is on the stage and In addi
tion to being able to keep the audl
enco amused ho contrives to reveal
himself a very capable, srlous musi
cian. The Wilson brothers, German fun
makers, promise fifteen minutes of un
bounded hllailty. They designate their
turn "In a Padded Cell" and havo
made an unbounded hit all over tho
Mile. Alexander and Mons Bertie,
aovelty and refined French neriallsts,
will give a beatitnul graceful but por
'ous act, entitled "After Tho Ball"
In which they display some surprising
Austin Walsh takes a uunch of
'rubbernecks" on an automobile ride
hrough Now York. A stereoptlcan
's used. His, "lecture" will bo 'ap
pelated by afl who havo oven taken
i ride on "Tho Seeing Salt Lako"
Kates 'Brothers,1 eccentric acrobats,
aro duo to get the glad hand for
their clever work. They aro not only
clever, but are distinctly well up In
Another meritorious featuro will be
that offered by Pero and Wilson, who
startle with a scries of Japanese man
ipulations and barrel jumping. This
couplo stage their act In a beautiful
manner, and have made a decided hit
it every performance on tho Orpheum
circuit to date.
Then, of course thoro Is tho kino
dromo with some excellent motion
picture offorlngs with a panorama of
Lake Geneva and a comedy devoted
to mother-in-law troubles.
And tho famous all-soloist orchestra.
It appears to be a vaudeville cock
tall all right with no headache at
Spiteful Old Man.
"Uncle Henry Plnchpnnny has given
our nobby a drum," remarked Mrs.
"The Idea!" exclaimed her sister.
"How did he over comc'"tb do that?"
"Oh, heVtakcn a- sudden dislike to
Mr. Popley and me."
GREEi-EY AS A POSEUR.
Great Editor Was Prone to Harmless
There was a great deal of innocence
In Horace Greeley as well as not a lit
tle affectation. He was rarely seen
without 030 trousers leg carelesBly
caught In the upper part of his buot,
and a nedktlo with a bow under his
ear. Onco In tho public room cf a
hotel a friend of Greeley's kindly
pulled down the disarranged trousers
leg and straightened tho necktie.
Greeley thanked him and soon after
left tho room. When In tho course of
halt an hour ho appeared In tho street
tho trousurs leg nnd tho necktie had
been carefully disarranged, and tho
man looked as negligent of things
earthly ns ho alway3 looked. It Was
part of his pose as a man of genius
to wear his trousers leg and his neck
tlo aB If ho had put then, on In a
hurry will to absorbed In meditation. It
wo3 a harmless eccentricity.
