'r ARLISS IN "SEPTIMUS."
George Arliss presents a new man 1-
testation of his genius as a character
factor as "Septimus" In the dramatlza-
iition of W. J. Locke's Dooular novel
jj-jat the Illinois this evening under -the
j direction of Harrison Grey Flske. It
' is a startling contrast to his brilliant
performance of "The Devil" last sea
s ' son, for Septimus AJax Dix, the hero
J of Locke's story, is the very embodl
jment of the -unworldly, honest and
, ; lovable in human, nature. He is said
i I to have created a personality as sym
J 'pathetic as Joseph Jefferson's "Rip
tfVan Winkle" and as quaint and ten
t'derasR S. Wllliard's "Tom Pinch."
In Mr. Arliss' support as leading
woman is Miss Emily Steve.ns.a cousin

woven about Napoleon, the baby, and

age is said to be bordering on the 40

MANNERING'S NEW HOME.
Chicago, March 11. Mary Manner
ing, the actress, has purchased tho
beautiful home erected on the shores
of Lake Labelle, Wisconsin, by the
former Controller of the Currency
James H. Eckels. The estate is one
of the most beautiful In Qeonomowoc
and Miss Mannering will have for her
neighbors many of Chicago's most
prominent society people.. Miss Man
nering will use the property for her
summer home and for a retreat In
which to rest from her stage work.
For some time the Eckels property
had been on the market, but the ad
ministrators of the estate found a
hard time in disposing of it because
of- its costliness. Mr. Eckels spent
about half a million on the place ani
it was said to cost about $50,000 a
year to maintain it In proper style.
It was the expense of .keeping up
this property which friends of the
dead financier say was partly to blame
for the involved financial tangle in
which he was enmeshed at the time
of his death. It Is not known what
price Miss Mannering V paid for the

AT THE FAMILY.
Manager J. P. Quinn of the Family
vaudeville is presenting a strong bill
for the last half of the week. It is
headed by the Clipper quartet, the
members of which all possess pleasing
voices. A Dutch comedian and
"Charley boy" furnish some rich com
edy. Scott and Wilson put on a good
comedy-acrobatic act. One of the
members of the team appears before
the footlights and announces that the
other member of the team missed his
train connections and the turn could
not be given. His fellow performer is
seated in the rear of the house. They
eet Into a conversation. The one in
the audience goes so far as to claim
that he Is a resident of Milan. Sev
eral thrusts are made at the expense
of the little village. He finally goes
up on the stage and some pretty good
acrobatic stunts are executed. This
act and the one of the Clipper quartet
make the show really worth seeing.
The Musical Brandons present a neat
musical turn. They play on half
dozen Instruments. Billy Moore talks,
sings and dances. Mrs. Casey gives
the illustrated song, "Every Star Falls
in Love with Its Mate." Anyone who
saw the bill for the first half of the
week and was disappointed because of
the fact that the moving picture film
was not ended, may see the other part
of it this half. .
