AT ALL DRUG STOEES
"The Love Cure"
Love Cure" Is the Viennese oper
exfa ; which th'e metropolitan critics
hate, hailed as the only legitimate sue
jCessor to Mr. Savage's other world-hit,
"Tbf -Merry widow," and which the
New York public has greeted with rare
enthusiasm- The composer of the op
Operetta is , Edmund Eysler. the emin
ent Augtrian musician, while the li-
preto-Hn the American version is the
VSQiti? of that brilliant humorist, Oliver
the man," says Attorney Brown, repre
senting the plaintiffs.
Story of Mining Camp. Miss Nae
St. Clair, a popular actress, is the star
of "Bunco in Arizona, a comedy drama
of western life, which is at the Illinois
today, matinee and night. The scen
ery, which is In four acts, is both re
alistic and romantic, and. with the
groupings of the Inhabitants, the at
mosphere is true to actuality. The
story is one of considerable interest,
and free from exaggerated and impos
sible nonsense, such as abounds only
too often In western plays. It deals
with a child who has been left a waif
at Black Creek mining camp and has
been adopted by a good-hearted and
popular mine owner, Jim Blunt. There
is much that is good in "Bunco in
Arizona." It is all clean and-wholesome;
its atmosphere is refreshing,
and there Is nothing suggestive in the
story it unfolds.
LITTLE STAGE STORIES

panion piece to "The Midnight Sons"
called "The Jolly Bachelors."
And wiry Eva Tanguay Is sitting up

In the Academy of Music the Messrs.
Shubert have -added one more New
York theater to their already large list
of Manhattan playhouses. The first
attraction was Milton, Lacka ye in "The
Battle," followed by "The Ringmas

appearing in one of his early musical
comedy successes, Richard Carle

In one of the vaudeville theaters two
"sidewalk conversationalists" engage
in this bit of repartee: "How much do
you earn, my good man?" inquires one
of them. "I get $8 a week," is the
answer. "Only $S!" says the first u
surprise. "Can a man live a good
Christian life on $3 a week?" "Huh,"
replies the other. 1 "He can't live any
Michael Donlin, who, with Mrs.
Mabel Hite Donlin, is acting in vaude
ville, had a controversy with a critic j
in the gallery the other day. "Say,
Mike," this Individual shouted, "you
play ball better than you act." Mr.
Donlin was quick with his answer.
"If I was as good an actor as I am a
ball player," he said, "Frohman would
have hired me long ago."
Miss Bertha Kallch announces her

English medium. The direction of her
tours hereafter will be by her hus
band, Leopold Spcchner.
"The Golden Widow," a new play
lately produced under the management
of Messrs. Shubert, Is a rarity in that
it has no stars or rather several of
them, for Louise Dresser, Alexander

worked out In a new four-act drama en

May De Souza haB been taking life
very easy since she returned from Eng
land as an established favorite of the
continent, or else the managers of her
native land do not evaluate her serv
ices as did those of London. She was
talked of for "The Candy Shop," and
then her voice didn't fit the songs;
she was announced as co-mate with
John Slavin In "The Air King," and
then she didn't like the piece. . At any
rate she is now in Chicago, and the
management of the Cort theater is try
ing to engage her for "The Kissing
Blanche Ring in "The Yankee Girl,"
a new musical comedy by George V.
Hobart and Silvio Heln, will be the
attraction at the Garrick theater, Chi

bevy of pretty girls contribute to ren
der "The Yankee Girl" a gala offering.
The songs and music are bright and
lively, a special number being a new
march written especially for Miss Ring
by John Philip Sousa, called "The
Glory of the Yankee Navy." . Lew
Fields, who presents Miss Ring in
"The Yankee Girl," ranks high as a
producer of musical comedies, and has
given his particular and undivided at
tention to this offering, and succeeded
In bringing together the Btrongeet cast
that has ever surrounded Miss Ring.

Mr. Breese Brings
"The -Earth" West
Tomorrow evening Henry B. Harris
will present Edmund Breeso in James
Bernard Fagan's great London success,
"The Earth," at the Olympic theater,
Chicago, launching the actor as a star
and giving the first American metro
politan production of this play, which
pictures .the power of the "yellow
press" lri Great Britain.
. Mr. Breese is recalled by theater
goers as the creator of the Rockefel

'Mouse," John Burkett Ryder, and as
Richard Brewster, the lawyer in "The
The play revolves around the charac
ter of the Rt. Hon. Denzil Trevana, a
young and ambitious cabinet minister,
who comes into conflict with Sir Felix
Janion, the owner of "The Earth," a
newspaper with a circulation of one
million a day. Sir Janion seeks to
r. . 3. f ' . iy
compel the withdrawal of a bill pro
posed by Trevana, designed to aid the
working classes, by threatening to ex
pose his relations with a countess. To
save the woman from disgrace, Tre
vana agrees to its withdrawal, but
when the countess learns of this, she.
In a stirring scene, vows to confess
her shortcomings rather than thwart
This forms one of two great scenes
in the play, with that in which the
newspaper publisher and the young
r cabinet minister are engaged in a
heated battle for supremacy.
Mr. Breese's supporting ' company
comprises Miss Dorothy Dorr, Frank
Mills, Leslie Kenyon, Helen Macbeth,
Louise Rial, J. B. Maher, Iva Dawson,
Thomas F. Mulligan, Harris L. Forbes,
Charles K, Gerrard, Henry Stephen
son and F. E. Duff.
The Thief ' Appeals
to Husbands and Wives
In his review of Charles Frohman's
production of Henry Bernstein's play,
"The Thief." which is due at the Grand,
Davenport, the latter part of the cur
rent month, the noted New York critic,
Arthur Brisbane commented: "How
different are men from women. Women
live with thin, scrawny, undersized, in
significant, bald husbands. They praise
those husbands constantly. If he can't
grow a beard, then the wife hates
beards. If he has a beard like the
mane of a roaring lion, then the wife
thinks the beard is "so manly." If the
husband is bald, the wife thinks that
is a sign of brains and refinement, or
says she thinks so. She even points
out the fact that Zulus and burglars
are never bald. If the husband is a
thin-legged, narrow-shouldered little
person, the wife hates "mere brute
strength." If the husband Is as wide
as Jeffries and as tall as Fairbanks,
then the wife studies up Hercules, and
i3 always asking the husband to dou
ble up his arm and let people feel his
muscle, or to swell out his foolish
"On the other hand, what do husbands
do? They ask their poor, little, dumpy
fat wives if they can't "pull themselves
together a little," and "have some
style." If the tip of their wives noses
get red in the early morning, instead
of ignoring that, they talk about it, and
give Bage advice. They tell, their
wives about new gray hairs and wrin
kles. Truly, It is wonderful the pa
tience that wives have with husbands
and wonderful how they stand them.
We certainly hope that Charles Froh
man will parade this play, "The Thief,"
all over the United States, In all the
cities and towns, and compel as many
husbands as possible to see it."
Fannie Ward in New Play
Miss Fannie Ward, who will be seen
In Chicago, beginning Nov. 22, in "Van
Allen's Wife," a new play by Forrest
Halsey and Lee Arthur, is an Ameri
can girl, both by birth and training,
although her long residence in London
has made many believe that she is
English. Mies Ward was born in St.
Louis, and one of her first appearances
on tbe stage was made in a Hender
son extravaganza in . Chicago at the
Chicago opera house. However, it was
not many years before she had estab
lished herself as a player of ingenue
roles. Twelve years ago she went to
England on a visit, but was Immedi
ately engaged by . George Edwardes.
She appeared in. "The Shop Girl," and
later played leading parts at tbe fa
mous Drury Lane. She made distinct
successes In "Lord and Lady Algy" i
and "The Climbers." when she retired
from the stage for a few years. Her
reappearance was in the nature of a
triumph for the young star. Such a
tremendous success did she score In
"Tho New Lady Bantock" that she
was given a contract for an American
tour. So striking an Impression did
she make on American audiences that
thWcv a more serious drama was
secured for her . vehicle and advance
reports on Miss Ward's work seem to
justify the faith that her managers
had in her. In th company which will
support Miss Ward will be H. Reeves
Smith, John W. Dean, Errol Dunbar,
Henry Duggan, "Miss Janet Slater and
Miss Margaret Fuller.
