attained such universal popularity, or
won so great a measure of critical
approbation as is invariably accorded
this delightful mixture of mirth and
melody. Manager Stewart- has called
his farce "The Two Johns" a Scotch
highball and it will prove to be a gen
uine "bracer" guaranteed to drive
away dull eare in one round." The
comedy is. ludicrous in the extreme
and the song hits and musical en
sembles are of the catchy sort that
will set the town a, whistling.

One of the most extreme novelties of
recent years; and. like all Nemo inven.

you had no corset on.-'--7 - '

It was only a" few days ago that the
piece closed its run of more than six
months at the La Salje theater in Chi
cago, and the production which comes
to the Illinois is the only one in ex
istence. The. fact that ."A Girl at the
Helm"ris a La Salle theater produc
tion made by the Princess Amuse
ment company of which Mort H. Sin
ger is the managing director, is the
strongest argument that could be pos
sibly be used in its favor. Exper
ience with such worthy earlv La
Salle productions as "The Time, the
Place and the Girl," "The Umpire,"
"The Girl Question," "A Stubborn
Cinderella" and others has taught the
local play goer that Mr. Singer's
name coupled with a musical show
guarantees an honest entertainment
