,7 Costumes Are Correct. Correct cos
tuming is an exceptional feature with
interest and interpret it with capable
people, that is exactly what makes
amusements desirable and in demand.
All of this is what one finds in "The
Girl Over, There," at the Illinois to
night. Every number of "The Girl
Over There" is correctly costumed and
everything made of the very finest ap
propriate material. An instance of this
is shown in the costumes of the first
act, where all of the cow girls appear
in gorgeously trimmed leather suits.
Tho second act unfolds to view even
ing gowns made by Worth of Paris that
cost $1,200 each without the heavy im
At the Family. The program at the
Family tlieater was changed on Thurs
clay, and all new acts were presented i
with- the single exception of Bilyck's
uveat educated seals and sea Mions,
wiiicii, owing to tne great popularity
i ;' net, was held. Tho. change' In
i ii:' program is a popular one, as the
in i: p-esented Thursday is far superior
to that of the first three days of the
week. This is the bill which has been
known as a feature bill, and it is. Amy
Buckley, Chicago's favorite comedienne,
opens the show with a lively mono
logue inierspersed with impersonations
aud several musical. numbers, and from
the time she steps foot on the stage
she ha-s the audience, with her. The
mysterious "La Auto Girl," or mechan
ical doll, a second feature act which has
been added to the bill, afforded no little
amount of amusement when the figure
was taken into the audience and made
to perform various gestures and manip
ulations. In fact, the figure was put in
the very closest touch with people in
the audience, and so mysterious was it
their feet with the best of artists. The
musical numbers by this company are
unusually good and a real treat. Mrs.
Mae Richards Casey Is singing Night
and Day," illustrated, with great suc
cess, and i;i all it can only be said that
It is a great show. . ,

vyn. the young American pianist whiN
has scored such a decisive sncnuss :n
Europe, has arrived in Chicago to
make her American debut with the
Theodore Thomas orchestra in that
city Tuesday evening, Oct. 29. He
coming attracted some attention, tor
abroad she is recognized as, a great
pianist and something of the "refuta
tion she acquired in Berlin and other
European capital's preceded her to this
country. American residents in Eu
rope have had occasion to feel proud
of this American girl during the last
three years, for she has been winning
warm words of praise from the crit
ical and daily press as well as. honors
at the hands of royalty. A native of
Sherman, Texas, Miss Elvyn was
taken at an early age to Chicago and
later to Berlin for instruction. In the
latter city she studied under Godow-
sky, malflng her debut with the Phil
harmonic orchestra in December, 19(14.
Subsequently she played in the chief
cities of Europe and always with dis
tinguished success. She was person
ally complimented by Emperor Wil
liam, who declared that she had
proven to him that'America was capa
ble of producing great musical genius,
A diamor.a brooch she wears is a gift
from that - n:!T.' Miss Elvyn will ap
pear in RonW Island at the Illinois the
ater Nov. 12, and it Is said by musi
cians that Miss Elvyn is the finest
pianist to visit the - tri-citles coming
season. Miss Elvyn is being accorded
a most flattering reception in Chicago,
having been, the guest of honor last
night at a function at the new Con
gress hotel under the auspices of the
Women's Press league. She was haile 1
as the most beautiful woman musician
in the world.
Wooden Shoe Specialty. A wooden
shoe dance, when it is done as onjy
Sam Kline and Johnny Kiefer can do
it, is one k the most1 enjoyable spe
cialties that come on the pomedy stage.
Kline and Kiefer, who are with "The
Show Girl" company, which comes to
the Illinois Saturday, Nov. 2, have long
been popular favorites on the big vaude
ville circuits. Manager John P. Goring
