HEAD OF COMPANY
Roger Imhof, of This City, Mak
ing Mark in Theatrical
UNDER THREE YEARS'CONTRACT
With the Management of Vanity Fair
"Which Appears Here
IJoger Imhof, the comedian heading
the "Vanity Fair" company, which
appears here Thursday, is a native of
Koek Island, having been born in this
city :.".) years ago. Mr. Inihof's first
appearance n the prcfessional stage
was at Hall's casino, Chicago, March
21!. 1S1U. lie has made but one Ap
pearance in his native city, and tin that
oeca.-ion assisted at the Uock Island
Club's first minstrel entertainment,
at the old Harper's theatre.
Mr. Imhof is conceded to be one of
the most natural Irish character com
edians before the public. His pres
ent partner, Hugh L. Conn (Conwell)
was also born in Koek Island, but his
parents later moved to Davenport.
Mr. Conn has also made great head
way in his line, and the character of
Dr. Louder as portrayed by him is
considered a clever piece of character
Messers. Imhof t Conn are engaged
for three years with the management
f "Vanity Fair,"' and next season will
e seen in an entirely new play. In
conjunction with Corinne Imhoff (Mrs.
Imhof) these gentlemen present one
of the best specialties that has ever
been conceived. It is entitled "Doings
of Dr. Louder." and it is brimful of
good things, laughs and situations.

"The Wizard of (). a spectacular
musical comedy welded from the
fairy story of that name, was seen for
the first time by a Koek Island audi
ence last night, and it was high'" n
joyed judging by the app'aus
stowed. It was not the original com
pany, but the difference is not great
enough to warrant contrast. The pro
duction headed by Montgomery and
Stone, who created the grotesque
characters of the scarecrow and the
tin woodman, is iu the east, going
there from Chicago, where it enjoyed
a phenomenal run. IJert and John
Swor, brothers, have stepped into
Montgomery and Stone's shoes in the
road production, and they do very
nicely. I'oth are smooth dancers anil
have good singing voices. "The Wiz
ard of ()." depends almost entirely on
its spectacular gorgeousness for its
hold upon the public, for it cannot be
said that there is much of the music
that appeals to the car. However,
there are several numbers" interpola
ted that help along, and the principal
characters are in the hands of people
capable of getting otit of them all
they are worth. The chorus is large
and made up of good voices, but lack
of training was manifest. This defect
will disappear, of course, when the
company shall have been on the road
a while longer. Isabel. D'Arnicncl was
Dorothy (iale, but she was under the
weather on account of a cold, and was
unable to do herself justice cither in
her dialogues or songs. May Taylor
was a lively Cynthia Cynch. the lady
lunatic; Carolyn Huestice gave a sweet
interpretation of the "Sammy" song,
and William Harry was funny as the
Wizard. Mildred Elaine, who essays
the character of Sir DashemotT Daily,
p et-laiircate, has one of the best
voices in the company, but has little
opportunity to display it. having but
one song, and that not in any wise
suited to her. The production as a
whole was a grand affair. It is to play
a return engagement here next Sun
day. Little Adelaide Thurston will be
seen here in her new play, "Polly
Primrose," by Paul Wilstach. Friday,
matinee and night. Accounts of
Miss Thurston's presentations of this
year agree that she has a finer play
than any she has ever been seen in
before. Her company is the largest
and most capable that has ever sup
ported this sweet little actress, ami
her production carried complete from
scenery down to furniture, carpets,
rugs and even an old piano, necessary
to lend atmosphere to the play, which
is located in old Georgetown, 1). C.
in ISO.-?. Miss Thurston will appear
bewitchingly pretty in the quaint
crinoline dresses of that period. Miss
Thurston's engagements here have
always proven notable successes, and
no doubt her many admirers will be
out in force on Friday afternoon ad
evening. The advance sale opens

of note; .lack (Sardner, a singing
comedian of originality; and Cook
ami rnivia. dancers. In con-
don there is a burlesque in which
the entire company takes part.
Sir Henry Irving's production of
"Faust" was considered the acme of
stage realism mt il Lewis Morrison
decided to return to the stage in his
creation of Mepliisto, with a prodiu
tion that surpassed all previous ef
forts. Hritish electricians are not as
skilled, nor are scenic artists iu the
race with our New York artists like
Armbruster & Seavey. Morrison put
out money freely and the result can
be seen at the Illinois Saturday with
Lewis Morrison himself as Mepliisto.
The production has called forth ap
proval and admiration from the most
prominent critics of the count rv.
"Art for truth's sake" is the ideal
of the new school in drama and it finds
a counterpart in the tendency toward
naturalness in all realms of art ex
pression, hi the drama. .James A.
Heme's "Shore Acres" is perhaps the
best demonstration of this new shib
boleth. The selected principle is iu
no wise curtailed or annulled by the
ad ption of art f- '"ith's sake," as
a guide in dramatic . ist ruction, but
on the contrary becomes more neces
sary than eer. "Shore Acres" is true
from beginning to end, but it is truth
artistically selected an; welded into
one harmonious whole. It is the high
est and best expression of Mr. Heine's
two-scoe years of experience on the
stage, but. as he admitted, it was pre
ceded by a number of failures, which,
though written on familiar lines, were
either too far in advance of public
taste, or were, perhaps, faulty in
dramatic construction. Mr. Heme's
most successful plays have been
"Shore Acres." "Heart's of Oak." and
"Sag Harbor." and all three have won
lavish praise from America's most
discerning critics. A fine scenic pro
duction of "Shore Acres" will be
given at 1 he Illinois tonight.
In the entire realm of musical
comedy Chicago successes, "The Isle
d Spice" stands preeminent as a
shining example of all that is meri
torious in that line. Its l.'0-night
run at the LaSalle theatre in the Illi
nois metropolis merely accentuates
the promise it gave as its premier,
and its present production by Messers.
F. C. and 15. C. Whitney is but one
more indication of the astuteness of
these managers. Kealizing the neces
sities, they have engaged the best com
pany of thoroughly reputable artists
available, and have headed it by the
crowning engagement of a chorus
that is remarkable for the great beau
ty of its female contingent. As a
scenic display, "The Isle of Spice"
will mark an eoch in local theatri
cals. The costuming also will be
found beautiful and artistic in the ex
treme. The story of "The Isle of
Spice" is a series of the most ludic
rous comedy complications, and gives
the entire company full scope for the
display of their undoubted abilities.
As a musical entertainment, it is not
tine iota behind the claims made for it
as a purely "show" piece. It plays
here tomorrow evening.
