nois Sunday, matinee and evening.
Cetter Than a Sermon. "Faust,"
which comes to the Illinois next Tues
day contains a large measure of moral
philosophy both in the actual words
of the players and in the ensemble of
its weird light3 and shadows its ,com
edier, and tragedies. Sam Jones apt
ly characterize;; it when he said it was
"better than a sermon."
Painting Basis of Plot. The story of
"The Beauty Spot." which will be at
the Burtis, Davenport, tomorrow, is
based upon the painting of a portrait
in which a mole upon the knee of the
model figures most prominently; and
this model, since married to the gen
eral, spends two acts of the play in
her c-.Turts to prevent the painting
from being exhibited by the artist.
Further complications are brought in
by a young Dutch planter and the art
ist getting mixed in their identities.
while two pretty love interests run
through the entire plot.

musical comedy with an actual plot

evening. '"Tin' District Loader" Is
from the pen of Joseph E. Howard,
-that prolific o;nposer whose other ef
forts. "The Time, the Place and the
Girl," "Goddess of Liberty" and "A
Stubborn Cinderella," have made him
famous throughout the country. On
"The District Leader" Mr. Howard
has used to good advantage his ex
perience gained in wrkiv.;- the above
nami d plays. A strongly developed
story added to a number of catchy
and tuneful songs is a combination
which has made "The District Leader"
a hit. Miss Minnie Jarbeau plays the
part of Flossie Whittle, an innocent
and ingenious maiden from Tcaneck,
X. J., In the same fascinating way
that made her a favorite in other pro
ductions. Miss Jnrbrau's ability to
portray this sort cf part is unques
tioned, and her singing and dancing
are features of the play. It is claimed
an able company supports Miss Jar
beau in "The District Leader."
Is a Fine Comedy. "The Blockhead"
Is a beautiful comedy that will win its
way into the hearts of the theater
going people, and while high class and
refined in construction, it is a play for
the masses and appeals to all classes.
It has a great heart storv with a rich
ly woven plot told in a simple manner
