Illinois theater for an engagement of
matinee and evening, Sept. CO, with an
excellent company and a beautiful
scenic production of the pretty idyll,
now as famous as "Way Down East.

is a most positive novelty in the way
of theatrical entertainments. It is a
farce comedy with a plot, and for its
correct production an entire scenic
equipment, electric and mechanical ef
fects and moving picture films, especi
ally made for the play, have been pro
vided. Songs, dances and other spe
cialtles follow each other in rapid suc
cession, and although the broadest kind
of farcical and absurd situations never
seem to end. they are written in with a
reason for all.
Comes to Grand Saturday The man
ner in which the turn of the theatrical
wheel brings fellow playgoers together
time and again during their career is
shown in "The Love Route," to be pro
duced at the Grand opera house, Dav
enport, Saturday, Sept. 20. After nine
years' active service in other companies
three of the players in the original
"Secret Service" company are again
found in the same cast. These players
are Odette Tyler, Walter Thomas, and
Olive May. Miss Tyler created the
role of Miss Mijfprd, "the girl across
the street" in "Secret Service." Walter
Thomas played the part of her boy lov
er. Miss May was then Miss Tyler's
understudy, and finally succeeded in
"Peggy From Paris." "Peggy From
Paris," one of the most successful mu
sical plays ever produced in this coun
try, will be at the Illinois theater to
morrow. "Peggy From Paris" stands
forth prominently as one of the recent
musical comedy hits. The book and
lyrics were written by George Ado.
whose fame as a humorist is a certain
guarantee of their wit and brightness.
The play ranks as one cf the cleverest
of Mr. Ade's efforts. It abbunds in
satire, humor and merriment. The
characters are droll and amusing and
they are carried through a succession
of mirthful scenes and situations. It
has been said of "Peggy From Paris"
(hat there is a "laugh in every line."
The humor of the play, while crisp and
swift and irresistible, is also whole
some; and the humor constant and un
failing is of high order and without
taint of coarseness. The play compels
laughter by the keenness of its wit, fie
humor of the speeches, the amusing
character portrayals and the comical
complications. The music is especially
attractive. It was written by William
Loraine, and its quality is guaranteed
by the fact that he wrote "Salome" and
"Zamona," than which nothing more
popular has ever been played by an or
chestra or on piano. Added numbers
have been contributed by J. A. Raynes.
Indeed, "Peggy From Paris" is famed
for catchy and swinging melodies.
There are many musical hits in the
play which are certain to capture pub
lic fancy here, and they are sung by
vocalists and a chorus whose fame has
long preceded them.

pearance of Walker Whiteside there:
"It was not because he was born in In

of most of his audience in honest work
during his career, not because he had

strong a seemingly impossible charac
ter for a stellar role, had held the cli
max in reserve by naturalism in his
acting, had won the love of his audi
ence for the part and then had thrown
nts whole soul into a thrilling scene in
a play which deals with idealism in
art and the theme that genius conquers
everything. Mr. Whiteside said at the
conclusion of an ovation seldom given
a star, especially in a play but a few
days old: 'I trust you are sincere and
that wc have pleased you. I do not
think it proper for an artist to peep
out through the curtains between acts,
bur your reception of our play has been
so cordial that I feel that I must thank
you in behalf of the company. This is
not a great play, hut a simple play in
which an endeavor has been made to
touch on matters of heart interest.
which, I believe, theatergoers wish to
witness. It is a play dealing with the
struggle of genius against all odds'"

BACK IN THE LEAI
Chicago White Sox Jump Over
New York and Break
LUCK WAS ALL WITH THEM
Helped Take Game From Boston and
Aided Detroit in Defeat of
Chicago, Sept. 20. Chicago's White
Stockings hurdled back into the lead
over the heads of the Highlanders yes
terday, but it took three of Comiskcy's
pitchers, 13 White Sox, nine Tigers,
and an unassisted double play by Man
ager Jones to put them there. The Chi
cagoans just escaped defeat at the
hands of the tailenders, score 3 to 2.
and Detroit won a game which Now
York apparently had cinched.
Half an instant before that unassist
ed double play put a sensational close
to the south side battle it looked decid
edly as if Boston's rattling spurt at the
finish was going to carry off the vic
tory for which the Sox had worked so
hard and unluckily, but in the pinch
luck turned and came to their rescue.
Orprndnl on Catch.
Not that the unassisted part of that
double play was essential to victory.
It could have been made another way
with equal effectiveness and was made
unaided simply because it came handy
and because of its rarity. But if the
brilliant catch which made the play a.
possibility had been missed, the gloom
out over the stock yards would have
been too thick for a plow, for at that
time it was supposed that New York
was going to win. the glad tidings from
Michigan not having been received.
