"Show G.rl" Here. B. C. Whitney s
production of the ' Show Girl." or "The
Magic Cap," is at the Illinois theater
today. The organization which com
prises some 50 artists, is under the
personal direction of B. C. Whitney.
The book is by R. A. Barnett, who is
responsible for such successes as
"1432." "Evangeline." "The Girl from
Paris," and other Rice successes. The
music Is by E. W. Corliss and H. L.
Ileartz. They have jointly made some
very singable songs, four of whic.1 at
least will be whistled on the streets.
There is nothing in the slightest de
gree that could be termed suggestive.
The comedy is real comedy and the
choruses are choral. The ladies who
take part in the spectacular affairs,
which are always part of the Whitney
productions, are trained to perfection.
Their marches and countermarches
are done with precision. The come
dians w-ill say and do things which are
genuinely funny; and the singers nf
sentimental songs, possess voices. The
company is headed by that clever
comedienne. Hilda Thomas, and in
cludes the following well known peo
ple: Lou Hall. Wendell Phillips, Kit
tie Neil. Lillian Gorman. Kline & Kei
fer, John A. Saunders, Ben Mulvey,
the "Show Girl" Four quartet, and a
large chorus. The scenery is magnifi

ALL DRUGGISTS: SOc.
Louis Evan Shipmau, which conies to
the Grand opera house, Davenport,
Friday evening, -Nov. 30, undoubtedly
an abundance, are models of the mo
diste's art; and the electrical effects
are said to equal any that have been
attempted during the present theatri
cal period. Taken as a whole, this of
fering of Mr. Whitney's will do credit
to his reputation, which has arisen
from the former successes.
Has Won Praise. "On Parole" by
the enthusiastic approval of cri
play goers wherever piesented.
audiences have been liberal in
applause at every presentation of
the piece. Henry Miller has provided
a superb company headed by Miss
C'hailotte Walker and Vincent Ser
rano, both of whom have achieved
great personal successes in their re
spective roles of Constance Pinckney,
the dashing young rebel dispatch car
rier, and Major Dale, the brilliant
young intelligence officer of the federal
forces. In spite of its military setting,
the play is really a charming love
story of a war time wooing, replete
with scintillating epigrams and clean.
wholesome humor. The unusually
strong cast includes such distinguished
nlavers as Frank E. Aiken. Morgan Co-
man. Frederick Forrester, Scott Cool
er Francis X. Conlan. Thomas P. Jack
son. Fay Wheeler, Helen Graham, and
Drew Well at Ottawa. According to
an Ottawa paper the Dalrymple Stock
company which is at the Illinois five
days beginning next Sunday, was voted
a success in that city when it filled
and engagement there recently.
Hackett at the Chicago Grand. At
the Grand opera house next. Sunday
right James K.. Hackett will be seen
for the first time in Chicago in "The
Walls of Jericho." a society play by
Alfred Sutro who. at one bound, has
ccrne to the front rank of British play
wrights, ranking equally with Plnero,
Grundy. Jones and Shaw. The success
of "The Walls of Jericho." ?n Ionuon,
where it lately concluded a run of two
years, and in New York where Mr.
Hackett presented it far a season of
over six months at the Savoy theater,
goes far to prove that the great repu
tation which has preceded it is well
founded. "The Walls of Jericho" is a
play with a purpose and certainly one
that iK)ssesses the power to interest.
In the company attending Mr. Hackett I
are Beatrice Beckley. May Blayney,
Mary E. Forbes, Mrs. Felix Morris,
Blanche Ellice. Ruth Chester. David
Glassford, Arthur R. Lawrence, Orlan
do Daly and John Hooper. There will
be matinees Wednesday and Saturday.
Is a Novelty. The secret of the suc
cess of "The Black Politician." the
latest offering of The Smart Set, the
best and. most popular colored aggre
gation cf performers before the public,
is due to the fact that it is a novelty.
The piece could be appropriately term
ed a comedy drama. It is nothing
more, with a decidedly suitable musi
cal setting. It is interesting, has a
plot that is plausible and logical and
contains enough thrills, features, sen
sations and funny bits to please the
most, fastidious amusement seeker.
Then there is a world of pretty music
in it too catchy songs well rendered,
tuneful selections well played. The
supporting company includes a chorus
of 30 and the costumes are all that
could be desired. This big attraction
will be seen at the Illinois theater to
morrow. Is Delicate Subject. "Whom do you
consider the world's greatest play
wrights?" was asked of Miss Harne.l
who is at the Grand. Davenport, Dec.
3 in "The Love Letter." Miss Harned
laughed and toyed with a chatelaine

"Now that may be a fair question,"
she said, "but playwrights are dread

rule, and it'srather a dangerous pre

the Riverside cemetery board have de
cided to have an ornamental gateway
constructed for the main entrance to
the grounds. Bids are being advertis

erect two massive stone pillars on
either side of the road, providing for an
