Fresh from Its New York Ciry run
In the Maxine Elliott theatre, ,"L.ulu's
Husbands" was shown to Chicago
playgoers on the night of May 22, and
, scored one of the great laughing suc-
- cesses of the theat rical season. The
Messrs. Shubert sent on the original
New York cast, with both Mabel Bar
rison and Harry Conor In the principal
roles. The spright Miss Barrison has
the best role of her career as Lulu
Rogers, a young actress with a pas
sion for sensational publicity; while
. Conor has a better character than has
fallen to his lot since the palmy days
of "A Trip to Chinatown" as the
. Jealousy-mad Doctor Morrison. Two
songs were introduced by Miss Barri
son and the audience kept her singing
encores to both numbers until she was
forced to beg off in pantomime. The
company in support of pretty Mabel
and her clever associate star is one
of the best ever sent to Chicago by
the Messrs. Shubert. Fanchon Camp

Aside from the powerful influence
of theatrical criticism in maintaining
a high standard in the drama as seen
on the American stage, newspaper
offices are furnishing the executive
heads of the big theatrical offices of
this country. Henry B. Harris had
newspaper experience in Boston;
James Forbes, author of "The Chorus
Lady," "The Traveling Salesman" and
"The Commuters," was identified with
Chfcag, Pittsburg and New York
newspapers; Marc Klaw of Klaw &
Erlangcr wa3 a newspaper man in
Louisville; Charles Dillingham had
newspaper experience in Hartford and
New York; George Tyler had his first
newspaper experience In cnillicothe,
Ohio, and Daniel Frohman was for a
long time connected with the New
York Tribune. Even the leading play
wrights of America at some time or
other in their life were newspaper
men. Augustus Thomas worked on the
St. Louis Times, Channing Pollock on
the TVashineton Herald. Eugene Wal

and on the New York World, Elmer B.
Harris on the New York Evening

MAY DE SOUSA'S HUNCH.
May de Sousa, recently seen as the
prima donna in "A Skylark," and who
created, the prima donna roles in Lon
don in "Girls of Gottenberg," "Hava
na" and "A Waltz Dream," has de
serted the previous fields of her en
deavor for the legitimate stage. Miss
de Sousa made her first appearance
as an actress in a dramatic production
as Hetty Brice, the leading female
part in James Forbes' new comedy,
"The Commuters," at Nixon's Apollo
theatre, Atlantic City, last Thursday.
She will be seen in New York with
"The Commuters," when it will open
the season at the C-iterion theatre on
Aug. 15. Miss de Sousa ascribes as
her reasons for making this radical
change that there exists no longer
the same conditions that once made
prima donnas the principal feature of
comic operas; that today in musical
shows everything is given way to gi
gantic productions, huge armies of
chorus and show girls, surrounding
vaudeville acts. Besides the music
that made the comic operas of the
past endure, appeals no longer to the
public taste. To the prima donna who
has ability as an actress, there are
more opport unities for success in the
legitimate, and for that reason Miss
de Sousa has taken this step.

ferry service fcetween Bettendorf and
Mollne was inaugurated at,. 7 o'clock
Sunday evening. The steamer B. B.
steamed through the open draw of
the government bridge and plowed
its way up through the Rock Island
rapids early In the evening. From
this time on the steamer B. B. will
make hourly trips between Mollne and
Bettendorf, leaving the Sixteenth
street landing this side of the river on
the even hour. ' This hourly service
will be maintained until a second ferry
is secured by the Moline-Bettendorf
ferry people, or . until the bridge be
tween Moline and the Iowa shore is
built and open for traffic. The steamer
B. B. enters service after a visit to the
Kahlke boat yard In the west end of
Rock Island,, and after a thorough in

Seeds may be sown in the spring
Indoors or out, good results being ob
tained by sowing directly in their per
manent place. The plants should be
one foot apart each way.
The flower has no corolla, but tne
calyx is colored and tubular shaped
so the casual observer may mistake
it for a true corolla. All shades of
red and yellow and also white flowers
may be obtained in the common varie
ties and one or two have variegated
foliage. They open late in the after
noon and remain open until morning.
These plants will be found useful as a
background for a flower bed or along
a fence, or a large mass will present
a good appearance. The foliage is
smooth and glossy.
These plants often come up year
after year from self-sown eeeda and
some times they ' produce tuberous
roots which may be dug up and
stored like those of the dah'lia.

John La Farge. the well known art
ist who revolutionized the art of stain
ed glass, was born in New York city
on March SI, S33. He studied archi
tectural decoration and then took up
the study of painting with Couture In
Paris and with William M. Hunt. He
began painting with religious subjects
and decorative work. lie painted flow
ers, a few portraits and many land
scapes. For' a short time Mr. La
JOBX XiJL FAP.OE.
Farge made illustrations for books and
magazines. He then devoted himself
to mural painting, mostly of a religious
or ecclesiastical character.
Technically Mr. La Farge's greatest
specific contribution has been, no
doubt, the extension of the possibili
ties of what is called "stained glass"
and the discovery of new ways of turn
ing it to artistic uses.
For the making of stained glass win
dows he Invented the new methods
known in Europe as "American,"
changing and reforming the entire
art of the glass stainer from the mak
ing of the new glass by new methods
to the painting of the same.
Much of this work Is in churches
and residences in Boston, New York,
Chicago, Cleveland, Philadelphia and
Mr. La Farge has written several
works on art and has delivered many
