Sothern and Marlowe started five

with their usual success, and Mr. Wal

Henry V, this rarely staged chron
icle play, has not been seen in this
country since Richard Mansfield act
ed it in the Garden theater in 1900.
It is not the drama that took deepest
root in the minds of the people who
loved to see Mansfield, and, while Mr.
Waller's "King Harry" is quite the
best thing he has shown us, the pro
duction in its entirety could not be
called impressive. To call Henry V
a play, in the sense in which we have
come to understand the play, is to
stretch definition to the breaking
point. It is, in reality, an epic of war
and a glorification of the man of ac
tion. However, practically all who
contribute to Daly's box office are,
or have been, students of Shakspere,
and this class is sure to be satisfied
with the entertainment.
Mr. Wallerdid all that an actor
could for the historic episodes grouped
about the king who gave the play its
title. He distinguished himself most
by his reading of the scene that pre
ceded the battle.
The version used was in four acts.

Katherine lacked nothing of the spirit

earlier interpretations of the part.
She was perhaps rather more convinc

the transition scenes of the third act.
But tamed, she was altogether charm
ing. Mr. Sothern's "Petruchio" seemed
a trifle broader and nosier than of
yore, but the comedy note was well
sustained throughout the perform
ance. Miss Helen Singer was a pretty and
alluring Blanca, but, as a woman in
the audience remarked, "catty enough
partly to account for Katherine."

The first point to be touched upon

The propriety of her lines, both as
she speaks them and she shows them,

to come. Along the lines of th.at kind

great deal of the caustic wit no
longer burns and many of the shock
ing phrases no longer shock.
As for the company which Robert
Loraine has brought with him from
London, it is more than satisfactory.
Mr. Loraine himself has lost none of
his virility or his supreme belief in
his lines. May Blayney. already
known to New York as the Hen
Pheasant in "Chantecler," made an ex
cellent Ann, who not only spurns the
man picked out for her and makes the
helpless John Tanner love and wed
her. but puts the blame for her bold
ness on John and her mother.

the latest turn in the road of thought,
it is still good fun and that keeps In
the front rank of plays.
"Steve," a weird wholly unnecessary
study in selfishness, was presented it
the Harris theater by Arnold Dajy.
Mr. Daly played an unllluminated
character exceedingly well and dis
played courage thereby. It is not

quality throughout an entire play, and
not even 3Jr. Daly's sacrifice makes
"Steve" wortn while.
With death, taxes, campaign ora
tory, the high cost of living, and other
things that help to put the black bor
der around life, "Steve" may be class
ified. It takes three acts to explain
how a worthless family sponge, the
favorite son of some inexplicable rea
son of ,an almost equally contempti
ble mother, robs his honest brother
of $600 with which to marry a girl
who is just as obnoxious as the rest.
People who hate themselves and re-
jolce in being disagreeable will be In
their element at the Harris theater.
"A Scrape o the Pen," by Graham
Moffat, author of "Bunty Pulls the
Strings," made a favorable impression
at Its premier at Joe Webber's theater.
The action of the play takes place
in the year 1874. The characters are
all Inhabitants of a village in the low
lands and their quaint costumes do
much to establish the play's unique
atmosphere. If the laughter occa
sioned is not so continuous as that
which was caused by "Bunty," It Is
not because Mr. Moffat has lost any
of his ability to create interest, but
because it throws its heroes into an
altogether different mood.
The "Scrape o' the Pen" is a mar
iage contract which a wayward youth
carries around the world, but which
finally returns to prove that the
young woman who is the central
figure has two husbands.
"June Madness" is not a remarkably
interesting tale of Mrs. Thornborough,
another heroine with a scarlet past.
Her daughter, who did not enjoy the
advantage of having a father, is about
to marry a magnate's son, when the
magnate's wife brings up the question
of who Mrs. Thornhdrough's husband
is. When this individual's identity
becomes known, he is discovered lay
ing his rather experienced heart at
the feet of the magnate's daughter.

it was asked, "do you ascend a step?"
"That's not quite it," replied Miss
Swinburne with a smile. "Every third
step we change on the second beat in
stead of the first."
"Milestones," Klaw & Erlanger's
production of - the Arnold Bennett
Edward Knoblauch comedy, is a de
parture from the present 'accepted
form of stage writing. The underlying
conflict of wills goes deeper than the
clash of twoor three characters. It is
the age-old clash of imperious youth
and conservative age. Forces at war
stand apart from the main personages
of the play, who pass in review from
youth to old age.
"Milestones" applies successfully to
the difficult medium of the theater a
method of telling a tale and drawing
a moral that heretofore has been the
monopoly of the novel and epic poetry.
It deals not with a page torn from the
lives of the characters, but with the
whole book. The Interest of the play
does not spring from the fortunes and
fates of each individual, but rather
from the unchangeable verities of
human nature that dictate the penalties
which the characters in the end are
compelled to pay.
The idea of "Milestones" three gen
erations in a play originated with
Frank Vernon, a London producer. He
outlined it to Arnold Bennett and In
troduced him to Edward Knoblauch, the
author of many successful plays, and
they wrote it.
Elsie Ferguson, who will sing the
title role in Klaw & Erlanger's pro
duction of Franz Lehar's "Eva." was a
passenger on the Olympic The pro
duction will be made In November with
a big cast and company. The plot
tells the story of Eva. a foundling,
who was adopted by the employes of a
glass factory. It Is full of melodies
and has a charming waltz number.
Robert Hllllard will open his season
in "The Argyle Case" in Atlantic City.
Oct 17. going to the Broad street
theater, Philadelphia, the following
week. His new play Is by Harriet
Ford and Harvey J. O'Higgins. founded
on a detective story by William J.
Burns. Mr. Hllliard plays the role of
a detective In search of a gang of
counterfeiters. Selene Johnson and
Stella Archer have been engaged for
roles. Gustav von Selfertltz will stage
the play and enact the role of a Ger
man scientist who turns counterfeiter.
It will be his first appearance as an
a.:tor since he played leads at the
Irving Place theater. New York.
Henry Miller in "The Rainbow," by
A. E. Thomas. Is making his first tour
in this comedy which delighted New
York the latter half of last season.
The Philip Michael Farraday produc
tion of "The Pink Lady." including Fred
Wright. Jr.. is touring England, playing
Liverpool this week to crowded houses.
An engagement will be played In Ire
land next month. Klaw & Erlanger's
production of "The Pink Lady" with
Olga De Baugh and John E. Young,
has completed a most successful tour
of the New England states, and will
now turn southward to repeat the
visits of last season.
Arrangements have been made by
Klaw & Erlanger and Joseph Brooks
for the dramatization of Hall Caine's
new novel. "The Woman Thou Gavest
Me," which will be published serially
beginning next month. It deals with
the large subject of woman's place in
the family in relation to marriage,
motherhood and divorce.
William H. Crane, the comedian,
opened his fiftieth season on the Amer
ican stage on Monday night in Wilkes
barre. Pa., in "The Senator Keeps
House," by Martha Morton. Mr. Crane
made his first appearance in Utlca
July 13, 1863, with the Holman Opera
company. Dunns' the most of the
course of his long career, he has been
associated with his present manager
and friend. Joseph Brooks.
v For the highly important role of the
Queen in "Somewhere Else." the fan
tastic musical comedy by Avery Hop
wood and Gustav Luders, which Henry
W. Savage will produce In December.
Miss Cecil Cunningham has been en
gaged. Miss Cunningham is the young
American prima donna who attracted
such favorable notice by her singing
of the title role of "The Pink Lady."
Franklin Farnum, whose experience
includes an extended engagement with
"Madame Sherry," has been assigned
to the juvenile role of the, same piece.
Because of the tremendous physical
demand which the title role of that
joyous operetta. "Little Boy Blue."
makes upon its incumbent. Henry W.
Savage has arranged to lighten the
labors of Miss Gertrude Bryan by pro
viding her with an "alternate." Miss
Eva Fallon, who has appeared under
rne ravage manaKemein. in xue xi
kee Tourist" and "The Love Cure," Is
now so familiar with the name part
as to be able to assume It whenever
occasion calls her.
Miss Mabell Allnne MacDonald has
been awarded the part of Natalie in
Mr. Savage's revival of "The Merry
Widow." Miss MacDonald's father
was a bishop of the Methodist church
and parental opposition for along time
prevented her seeking an engagement
with an operatic production in which
her voice could be used to greatest
advantage. Miss MacDonald's home is
in Beatrice. Neb., but she was visiting j
friends in Portland. Ore., when she fi
nally obtained her mother's consent to j
adopt the stage as a regular profes- ;
sion. She started for New York the
next day. Arriving in the metropolis
In the morning, she called at the Sav
age office that same afternoon and
was given a contract after her first
voice trial. Miss MacDonald declares
that she puts little faith in the stories
she has read of the tremendous diffi
culties which obstruct the path of
those who would get a start upon the
path to a stage career.
From this time forward the Henry
W. Savage attractions for the season
of 1912-13 will take to the road with
an interval of only about one week
between each pair of openings. One
company in "Excuse Me" be:ran its
tour at White Plains, N. Y., Thursday
September 26. In Newark, on Monday.
September 30th, the original New York
company in "Little Boy Blue" begun
its journeynig. Another company
playing In "Excuse Me" will inaug
rate Its season at Middletown, N. Y.,
Monday. October 7th. The "Everywo
man" company which is scheduled to
travel westward to the Pacific coast
will give Its first performance of the
season at Montreal. October 21st. On5
week later "The Merry Widow" will
make Toronto the starting point of a
tour which will include almost every
important city In the country.
When Arthur Collins contracted with
Henry W. Savage for the production
of "Everywoman" at Dury Lane. Lon
don, he insisted upon having for his
company a screw-tail Boston bull ter
rier named Rex. which had been one
of the living properties of the Ameri
can production. Collins' wish was
granted, and Rex. despite his protests,
was shipped to London. All of the ap
prehension with which Rex appeared
to view his trip to foreign lands has
been justified. Since his arrival in
England he has literally led a "dog's
life," and the life of a foreign dog in
Albion Is by no means one calculated
to appeal to the freedom-loving Amer
ican canine. Upon his arrival. Rex
was pounced upon by the British au
thorities, who placed him in quaran
tine, to stay until a satisfactory bill
of health was forthcoming. He was
sent to Putney, where is an institution
which becomes the temporary home of
all traveling dogs In that part Of the
empire. Rules for his conduct there
after provided that whenever he
moved abroad he should do so in a
cage transported by some thoroughly
responsible person. As a result Mr.
Savage was forced to engage a special
attendant for him. By this attendant
Rex is carried from Putney to ths
Dury Lane every day and back again
after each performance. Excepting
during the stage waits when he is not
acting, the terrier has no liberty at
all. and the only good fortune to
which he may look forward is that h
will be released from quarantine at
the end of three months.
Press agents of the American type
are practically unknown In England,
so In the London production of
"Everywoman" It was found necessary
to make away with Puff, who in the
American production, was the con
stant associate of Bluff and Stuff, the
theatrical managers. In the Dury
Lane performance Puff became Scribe,
The success of "The Million" in
Boston has been tremendous. For five
weeks the production of the Berr and
Guillemand whimsicality has crowded
the Majestic theater to its doors, and
the company begins its brie New En
gland tour confident in the belief that
new attendance records will be estab
lished wherever It appears.
MIAMI "WOULD HAVE
retltloni to Gila County Supervisors
for Privilege of Incorporatlnfr
Miami, Ariz., Oct. 7. The citizens of
Miami are now circulating a petition
to the board of supervisors of Gila
county asking foe the privilege of in
corporating the original townsite of
Miami and the addition known as
"Lower Miami," into a municipality.
The automobile drivers between
Globe and Miami laid off and went
to work repairing the road so that it
was passable. Considering the traffic
between the two towns and the large
amount of taxes paid the county by the
town of Miami and the mines in the
district, the deplorable condition of
the road is a disgrace to Gila county,
the citizens declare.
