Decorating for Washington's Birth
day. After the performance- of "Ari
zona," which by the way appears at
the Illinois Tuesday, Jan. 15, the eve
ning of Feb. 21, the audience was slow
in leaving as the lobby was crowded
because of the pouring rain outside. A
number of people were still in the
auditorium as the ushers hastened to
their usual duties of dressing the
chairs and balcony in their night
clothes. As the lengths of white can
vas were swung over the box railings
from above, two young fellows gazed
curiously at the process.
"I wonder what they're doing," said
one to the other.
"Most likely decorating for tomor
row," was the reply, "don't you re
member that tomorrow1 is Washing
"Sure enough," assented the first
speaker, then giving another observ
ant look at the canvas fluttering into
place over the balcony, he question
ingly continued: "But I didn't know
that they decorated with white flags."
Thelma Next Friday. Friday eve
ning, Jan. IS, the Illinois theater will
offer to its patrons one of the very
best attractions of the season in the
shape of Willis Maxwell Goodhue's
dramatization of Marie Corelli's thrill
ing romance, "Thelma," a novel which
has probably been read by more people
than anything produced by the brain
of a modern literateur. Mr. Goodhue,
who is best known bv his farcical
comedies. " Hello, Bill." and "His Roy
al Highness," is said to have made a
most consistent and scholarly stage
adaptation, and the company, headed
by Caroline McLean, who is to play
the name part, is described as being a
most competent one.

Messrs. Shubert, who have a reputa
tion for making very elaborate and
beautiful productions, produced in
New York last April, the beautiful
comedy. "The Social Whirl." and it has
but lately finished an extended run at
the New York Casino. It seems to
have achieved considerable success.
In reference to 'T'he Social Whirl." is
is said that all the fun that can be ex
tracted from recent dramatic incidents
in real life in connection with a well
known society journal is reproduced
with a musical setting that is full of
melody and catchy airs. The produc
tion is rather an elaborate one and
the company numbers over eighty.
There is the usual Casino chorus and
in this case they are said to be an un
usually handsome aggregation. Tha
musical numbers of which there are
over 15, in most cases have achieved
such a success that they are being ex
tensively played throughout the couu
try by bands and orchestras. Charles
J. Ross, of Ross and Fenton, wrote for
"The Social Whirl." a number entitled
"Just Kids." which is sung by Mr.
Ross, Elizabeth Brice. and Fred Bond
and many numerous humorous sketch
es and skits are worked in. "A Rainy
Day" chorus, "You're Just the One I'm
Looking For." and "Bill Simmons." o
'I Can't Keep Still when the Music
Plays." are all extremely popular. The
