AH tha'" evidences of success hav--
been .supplied the operetta, "The Mer
ry-Widow," which comes to the Grand,
iu Davenport. Saturday and Sunday.
In 'liar- bca burlesqued, it has been
imitated, and nusriupulous plagaris's

wealth of melody and from the charm
oF-ils story. It has traveled through
tirt the length and breadth of America
and has been as ; popular here as !t
has been throughout Europe. Lacking
other worlds to conquer, and being
barred from entrance to the theatricil
activities of any of the planets, it i?
r.ovt 'go;n"g"oT"r-once triumphed sec
tions and is repeating the hit it made
on the occasions of its first presenta
tions, indeed it is more delightful
now than ever. It is like the wie.e
that is consumed at Maxim's in tin
last act it gets hetter with age. The
chorus is perfectly trained and nim
ble and graceful. In the scenes which
close the story at Maxim's where th-?
dawn finds the prince and Sonia In
final reconciliation, the dancing num
bers are as full of abandon and gracj
as the most vivid imagination coul 1
picture the original in the Parisian
resort. In Savage's production, how
ever, ct.-e has been exercised to th-"1
end that the bounds of Ijjropriety bo
i:ot overstepped. There'i-is a liberal

for the Illinois Siin.lay. matinee an 1

is the claim of the management ?er
tin's play. A jidiy. rattling, rapid fi-o

of pretty girls who can sing and daue

little Japanese girl, played by Miss
Iouise Denman. is the heroine of "The
Pagoda." the musical comedy attrac

piece have made a elaring departure
in thus selecting a type of this race

been a wise one. Intermarriage be
