The splendid company presenting' it
worked in -whirlwind fashion and every
one in the company seemed impregnated
with the idea that the whole success
of the performance rested upon his or
her shoulders. That always makes for
success and the El Paso performance
was no exception, for throughout the

Three Twins" come to town. Full of
clever specialties, unique scenic effects,
pretty girls, handsome boys really,
there were some good looking chorus
men in this show abbreviated skirts,
long skirts, tights pink, blue, green,
striped and then some more colors
.sparkling songs, inpersonations that
were the quintessence of excellence
and so many more things that it makes
the head roll to try to think of them.
"The Three Twins" is a muoical comedy
that explains for itself why it ran for
a year on Broadway before the people in
the provinces" got a chance to see it.
And the show was originated in Chicago,
too, and -with this against it, the fact
?hat it had a long New lork run, is all
the more proof that it Is good, for New
Tork never greets anything kindly from
Chicago. And Jos. Gaites and his road
manager, H. C. DeMuth, did not trim it
down -when they put the company on the
road, for it is not like many New Tork
successes traveling on its name -with, a
mediocre cast. The people in the com
pany are ail top notchers, from the star
to the wardrobe mistress and -the scene
From the time the curtain went up
on a bunch of as pretty show girls as
ever wore long gowns and made the
front row occupants crane necks when
the hosiery display came in, for the
aext three hours, there was not a min
ute's time to catch a breath, except be
tween the two acts. Scenes and special
ties came thick and fast and dialogue
just as fast though it was not thick.
Quips and jests and jokes came so rap
idly that If you laughed as long as you
ought to at one funny thing, you miss-
who, by the way, is a peach of an actor,
and she plays her part splendidly. Miss
Gifford is quite a favorite with El Paso
ans, having now appeared here for three
seasons in succession, last year and the
year before as Florabelle Fly in "Little
Johnny Jones." In her "Little Miss
Uptodate" song she introduces all the
latest extreme fashion in hats, on her
accompaying chorus, and the effect is
most ludicrous. Miss Giftord has a
sweet voice, charming stage manner
ism, and a natural way about her act
ing that calls for approval ac once.
Miss Allen has a pretty soprano voice,
clear and vibrant, and sings with much
more expression than the usual musical
comedy singer possesses. This, Indeed,
was manifest in other members of the
cast. Miss Elena JSallinger sang well
and the chorus did especially good
work, singing the concerted numbers
with good volume, true tone and ex
Victor Morley, who has the leading
comedy role, is a whole show, a clever
acentric dancer, a graceful poseur, a
jumping jack when the occasion de
mands a good-loosing, clear-cut, active
chap when not in disguise, won his au
dience from his first entrance. In the
second act in his specialty recitation
he kept the audience in a continuous
gusto of laughter, particularly with his
pathetic recital of .the man with one
hair. His parody on melodrama with
orchestral assistance, got him another
encore. He is good for the blues.
Miss Bessie Clifford, his dancing com
panion, is a delicately pretty little
thing, graceful as a fawn and mighty
clever with her teet; indeed, she danced
herself well into her audience's hearts.
She sings the "ifama Tama Man" that
made the show famous and rolls her
eyes just how she does it is a mystery,
but she does it like automobile wheels
on a runaway machine on a downgrade.
Such a show would be a welcome vis
itor to El Paso any time.
Health Oranks and
"The Three Twins" is taken from the
old play of "Tom, Dick and Harry," but
it is surrounded with lots of clever
specialties. The particularly attractive
features of the performance are the
spectacular picture of "The Seven Ages"
in three tableaux; the electric swing,
which closed the first act, and is a
sensational novelty well worthy of such
a show; Mr. Morley's exceedingly clever
impersonations in the second act and
Miss Bessie Clifford's admirable danc
ing throughout the performance. All
through it are graceful songs, caramel
like ditties and brilliant orchestration,
making for a delicious and agreeable
The play has everything to make it
successful snappy music; pretty girls;
an almost endles variety of costumes;
more plot than the usual musical com
edy, a fine singing chorus of girls and
boys, laughable situations, good special
ties, picturesque lighting effects, cos
tumes abbreviated enough to suit the
most pronounced reformer who objects
to trailing skirts, and when you stir up
such a combination as that you are sure
to draw out a pleasing repast for those
who are to be entertained.
It would be hard to pick out the good
things and tell about them without
slighting somebody, but among the hits
was "Little Miss Uptodate", by Miss
Ada Gifford and Albert Livingston, and
chorus and the "Good Night, Sweet
heart,"' song, and "The Girl "Up There,"
sung- by Kate (Miss Minnie Allen).
Miss Gifford takes the role of the
ward of Gen. Stanhope (Harry Hanlon)

Have Evolved Some Strange and "Won

THE NEW CRAWFORD SHOW

A Trial Package of Stuart's Djspepsla
Tablets Sent Free.
Within the last 20 years there has
sprung into existence theories by the
score relative to the kinds of food that
human beings should eat, and should
avoid. With the tremendous increase
in nervous and stomach diseases -which
are caused by the strenuous life of this
neurotic, neurasthenic age in -which we
live, we are constantly having our at
tention called to some food faddist's
"new "idea" on the subject of alimenta
tion. Most prominent among these theo
rists is the vegetarian who insists that
meat -was never intended for the hu
man stomach, despite the fact that his
Ancestors for 6000 years or more, used
it as their principal article of diet; and
I the old patriarchs of Biblical History
-who lived to prodigious old ages, were
meat eaters. All of the great nations of
history have been users of meat, and
all of the most powerful and advanced
countries of today employ it extensively
in their dietaries, and their superior de
velopment and high degree of civiliza
tion are in strong and striking con
trast to the decadent and degenerate
nations of Asia and the tropics, whose
inhabitants are vegetarians.
Another fallacy which has lately be
come a fad, is the so-called "low-pro-teid"
diet. Now, the foods whlch are
rich in proteids are the ones which
build up nerve, brain, muscle and blood,
so that any great reduction in the
amount of proteid used simply means
semi-starvation lor the most important
centers of the system the ones on
which we depend the most to enable us
to successfully fight the battles of life.
Thns( nations whose people use foods
containing but lltle proteid are never
of large frame or well-built. Tne japa

While the action might be faster and
it would improve the play the produc
tion n thp wholp is very satisfactory.
It is in four acts, with the usual North
detail as to special scenery, careiun
looked after Mr. Doxee, "scenic artist,
if you please. The play tells the story
of a literary critic old beyond his
years, a "book worm" and student
who has been left the care of a daugh
ter of his old friend, but sees her for
the first time after she has grown to
womanhood, and falls in love with her.
His love makes him young again and he
becomes his real self for her sake.
Lloyd Sabine, the new leading man, is
the critic and Miss Mabel Cullen, the
new leading woman is the -ward. This
is a production made famous by Sol
Smith Russell and the role of the critic
carries a vein of quaint comedy peculiar
to Russell plays, that is very pleasing.
The part also calls for some strong se
rious acting. In all of it Mr. Sabine is
fully competent and his acting is the
best he has yet done.
Miss Cullen really had little oppor
tunity In last week's bill her first El
Paso appearance but this week she has
a chance to do some really splendid
work and does it with most pleasing
satisfaction to her audience. As the
young girl, just budding to woman
hood with all the lightness of a girl's
heart, she makes the character a real
one, full of life and vivaclousness, not
too much, but just enough. Her love
for her guardian is beautiful and the
audience is glad in the end that she
marries mm instead of the young lit
erary fellow (Harry J. Scott), whose
head is suddenly affected by his capture
of first prize in j. story contest in
which the critic was the judge.
The entire company is cast for the
plav and there is not a poor part in it.
Jessica Parker is as refreshing and
likable as usual and again has a role
well suited to her capabilities. A. S.
Lewis as the young journalist with a

love with her, makes a capital lover and

himself a failure, is realistic enough to
