AN ENOCH ARDEN
DETROIT, Dec. SI. —An Enoch
Arden In Detroit proposes to get
his wife back by payment of $200
to the other man in the ease, and
his proposition is likely to be ac
cepted. Michael Margalski left
three years ago to win a fortune.
A year and a half ago a body
found in a box car was identified
as his, and recently his wife mar
ried again. Last week Margalski
returned. The trio took their case
to a court for adjustment. As the
second marriage can be annulled,
tbe court thinks Margalski's propo
sition to remunerate his rival and
take bis wife is fair.

MAXINE ELLIOTT AT
"The Inferior Sex," as presented
by Maxine Elliott at the Audi
torium last night, conies far, very
far, from meeting expectations. In
fact, despite the frequent laugh
ter of the audience, the play is a
distinct disappointment. Perhaps
if we had not been expecting so
much,however, we might have been
But when we went to see the
great Maxine in a new play we aat-
Urally thought something out of the
ordinary was due. "The Inferior
Sex" is called a farce comedy. It
is humorous only because of a cer
tain sprightllnesi of the epigrams
with which is is sprinkled, and gets
its laughs only because of the
horseplay indulged in by the ac
tors. In the hands of less capable
people than Maxine,Frederick Kerr
and o. it. Clarence the skit would
be hopelessly impossible.
