in suite of the fact lhat Mis
Thenias has bf-vn handicapped by a sc

ar.ee in liic'lniiapolis .the News says
"'The Show Girl,' which opened at the
Park Thursday for three days, is brand
ed as a "musical tomfoolery." and lives
up to the brand better than any other
hov ;-ec n at the Park this year. It is
an exc ellent entertainment, as I wo
larsie audiences showed by their ap
pknjse and laughter. There is nothing
in ir but fun and inu.-ic, and no at
tempt is made to bring In anvthintr of
a serious nature. As to plot, there is
oaiy rnou?Ii to provide a means of ty
in4 diil'ei cut scenes together. 'The
;-i!:ow Girl' is intended, primarily, to
while away an evening in a pleasant
way, and it dins this with the greatest
case. Telling the story of a theatrical
company strandc-d in th? Island of Cy
press, the show gives plenty of oppor
tunity for the introduction of special
tics and sons hits that keep things go-in-
from start to finish. Hilda Thom
as of this city is the chief fun-maker
u I ILla
as Meg Webbington, star of the strand
ed company. Her singing and imita
tions are better than ever, while as a
comedienne her work is the best she
has ever done here. Not even the few
friends who were in the secret yester
day could note the slightest effect of a
severe illness' from which she has
scarcely recovered. Along with her,
Lou Hall keeps things going in lively
fashion, his work as Johnny Jones,
'reub' property man, causing a great
deal of laughter. Ben S. Mulvey as
Fly, the manager; Elton Black as Gar
rick, Samuel Kline as Lord Dyce, and
Grace Neil as Lady Betty, are also out
of the ordinary. Charles Parcor as the
cat, does an animal act that makes
kitty a fit companion for some of the
other famous stage animals."

Dee. 3, believes there is a great field
for an American . dramatist or play
wright of ability, in competition with
the foreign plays which, because of
their greater excellence, are gradually
driving the few competent American
authors into a corner. "It is a fact
much to be regretted, but nevertheless
true," said Miss Harned. "that America
deplorably lacks authors of merit, and
there is an immense future for the
man or woman who will produce dra
mas, farces, comedies, which shall
even appreciably measure up to the
standard of those foreign writers
whose plays are so universally prefer
red by players and managers of dis
crimination. The difficulty with the
American playwrights may be that he
is so imbued with the spirit of rapid
fire commercialism, that in order to
begin his royalties he will deliberately
sacrifice the possibilities of his brain.
The itching palm was never a patient
fellow to the inspired brain, and when
the eye is turned steadfastly toward

Full of Features. To do what is
called, commonly, a colored show well
enough nowadays to "catch the money"
a manager must fill it full of novelties
in song, scenery, dance, story, humor
organization and comedians. "The old
stuff won t go." wise people will tell
you. The public is always asking, like
Oliver Twist, for more, but not for
more of what you have been giving
them. They must have novelties in
every direction or the "used to" surely
"won t go now." Nobody knows this
better than the manager who brings
"The Smart Set" to the Illinois thea
ter on Friday Nov. 30. Consequently
he has packed it full of features brand
new and of the very best types of the
schools from which they have been
derived. In fact many of them will
start new schools.

Justice Hall's court against the Inde
pendent Malting company, claiming cf
that company the sum of $35 as rental
for a certain piece of property located
on Rockingham road near the Red
Jacket Pump company and which was
occupied as a saloon until the above

thy Cunningham, administrator of the
estate of Thomas Cunningham, against
the Tri-City Street Railway company,
we'nt to the jury yesterday, and it re
turned at 2:20 in the afternoon. Tho
verdict was that the plaintiff recover
$8,000 from the defendant street rail
way company. The last argument in
the case was made by Judge M. J.
Wade of Iowa City, who is assisting
Sharon & Donegan, attorneys for the
plaintiff. The eloquent Iowa City at
torney made a brilliant address in clos
ing the case. The court room was
crowded, many of the spectators being
ladies. The general consensus of opin
ion about the court house was that a
verdict in favor of the plaintiff would
be rendered, though the amount war, n
matter of speculation. The case has
attracted a wider interest than t he
O'Connor case which preceded it, ow
ing to the popularity of Thomas Cun
ningham, ami to the fact that he was a
firenianf killed while on duty.
