Winner From First. In sending
"Marcelle" here with the original New
York Casino cast headed by Louise
Gunning and featuring Jess Dandy, the
Shuberts believe they are giving this
city one of their most attractive mu
sical offerings. "Marcelle" is by PIx
ley and Luders, whose work in the past
four or five years is very well known.
After a period of inactivity, so far as
any new operas are concerned, thOBe
authors modestly came forward with
"Marcelle" at the New York Casino
and Bcored an immediate triumph. The
selection of Miss Gunning for the part
of "Marcelle," who is a French actress,
is a most fortunate strike not only for
the Shuberts, but for the authors ' as
well. She is said to be the youngest
prima donna on the stage today, and
her voice of wonderful purity and
range has made her the talk of operatic
circles. "Marcelle" 13 at the Illinois

Geisha Girls Head Majestic Bill.
The eight Geisha girls, who come to
the Majestic theater, Chicago, the
week of Dec. 6, are real Japanese girls
Imported from Nagasaki, Japan, ap
pearing now for the first time and con
sidered one of the most remarkable
novelties ever imported for vaudeville.
The act consists of singing and danc
ing to the accompaniment of the Jap
anese banjo or samisens. The posture
dancing is descriptive of Japanese po
ems or stories, and is done with' won
derful grace and expression. Some of
the dances are of a humorous nature
and are very funny. Geisha girls are
After months of dominant and un
disputed rule over the inhabitants of
Blue Grass, on the Iowa side, the rule
of the gang of about half a dozen ruf
fians who have held the village in the
throes of terror, has been broken, and
again the citizens are beginning to
take it into their hands to govern the
place as it should be governed. The
stabbing affray, in which the leader of
the gang, William Wainscott, is accus
ed of being the assailant, and who is
now in hiding with the authorities
searching for' him, brought about the
discovery of the domination which this
gang of ruffians has held over the vil
lage for the past year, and as soon as
its presence was brought to light in
this forcible manner, steps were taken
at once to dissolve it. Each member
of the sextet has kept himself well
within bounds during the past few
days and the place now resembles a
county village on a Sabbath.
Before the authorities were placed on
the trail of this band of ruffians, who
resemble in no mean Way the band of
Jesse James In other days, its sway
over the little village was remarkable.
The executives who were placed in au
thority to enforce rule and order were
powerless and in some instances fear
ful to take any definite stand on the
problem for fear that their homes
would be blown up by the gang. Citi
zens from other towns dared not leave
their vehicles standing unprotected on
the streets, as in the case of a Moline
physician, who drove his automobile
to Blue Grass, and while it was stand
ing on the streets, the lights of the car
were shattered and other damage
wreaked by the rough element of the
Count- Authorities on Ground.
In a determined effort to bring about
a desirable condition of affairs, the
Davenport and Scott county authori
ties are going to maintain a strict
watch on the members of this gang,
and at the first instance will arrest
and prosecute to the limit any who are
trained from childhood in the art of
entertaining, and are accomplished
singers and dancers. Harry Bulger,
the famous musical comedy star, and
one of the funniest men on the 6tage,
will be another of the important feat
ures of the program. Ldly Lena, one
of the daintiest of the English sing
ers who have captured American audi
ences. Is pleasant to look upon and
dresses beautifully and with rare var
iety, changing her costume for every
song and changing quicker than the
average artist of her class. Miss
Lena's songs are excellent. They are
typically English and are even more
tuneful than the usual tune of London
ditties. All her songs are catchy and
she sings them with charming expres
sion . The specialty of the Curzon sis
ters is unlike anything seen in vaude
ville. They are attractive young wo
men, perform beautiful evolutions, first
as butterflies and later as filmy-gowned
fairies. Their act created a sensa
tion at the New York Hippodrome.
Charles F. Semon, popularly known as
the Narrow Feller," is one of the
most unique figures in vaudeville and
his comedy specialty is always the
source of genuine entertainment. Mid
dleton and Spellmeyer company ap
pear In a comedy called "A Texas Woo
ing," and Barnes and Crawford are
singers and dancers. A number of
other well known feature acts are in
cluded in the bill, which makes a visit
to the Majestic well worth while.

obstinate cough. Simple "as it
