and delightful attraction. "Madame
Sherry," which is now closing its
ISth week at Chicago's beautiful
theatre, the Colonial, and will re
main but two weeks more, the final
performances to be given on Satur
day, Aug. 27. The tunefulness, the
bright lines, the kaleidoscopic fea
tures, public humor and splendid in
terpretation of this so-called French
vaudeville in three acts has estab
lished it as one of the most generally
satisfying productions ever launched
in Chicago and great things are pre
dicted for it when it reaches New
York. In the meantime Lima Abar

The Garrick Theatre. The Knights
Templar in Chicago is responsible for
the revival of one of the old-time farce
comedies at the. Garrick, the farce in
question being Leo Detrichstein's "Are
You a Mason?" a play which, by the
way, has made more people laugh in
times gone past than a dozen of the
ordinary farces combined. The trou
bles of the two men who deceive their
wives by pretending to be members of
the Masonic order will continue for two
weeks longer, the farce being ably in
terpreted by a company of more than
ordinary ability. Following "Are Yon
a Mason?" "Baby Mine," the merry
farce which has been keeping the audi
ences at the Princess theatre howling
lustily for several months, will be
moved to the Garrick for a limited en
gagement. The success of this play
has carried out to the letter the predic
tions made by the newspapers on th?
day following its production. Each
succeeding week has been marked by
a heavy increase in attendance, and
the indications are that the close of
the Chicago engagement will bo mark
ed by a blaze of glory. The date of the
transfer has been definitely fixed as
Sunday, Aug. 21. The same brilliant
company of players will continue with
it to the end of its Chicago run, in
cluding Otis Harlan, Marjorie Wood,
Ernest Glendenning, Asnes Delane,
The Princess Theatre. Henry W.
Savage, producer of "The Merry Wid
ow," "Madame X.," and other notable
successes, will display his first musical
play of the season when ".The Wife
Tamers'.' is shown for the fortnight's
(.rgascir.ent at the Princess theatre,
beginning Sunday, Aug. 21. Oliver
Herford and James Clarence Harvey
.vrore the libretto of "The Wife Tam
ers," while the score was composed by
Robert Hood Bowers. Mr. Herford is
the author of "The Love Cure" and the
English version of "The Devil," while
Mr. Harvey has written several books
and for a number of years has been an
important contributor to the Lambs'
Gambols. Mr. Bowers composed the
music of "The Soul Kiss" and other
successful musical plays. The produc
tion of the piece is made under tlie
direction of GeorgeV Marion, whose
craftsmanship has been apparent in
many of Sir. Savage's past successes.
For tuo Interpretation of "The Wife
Tamers" the cast was selected with a
view to an even performance of tho
play and not for the promotion of any
individual players. Among the mem
bers of the company are Lionel Walsh,
Florence Hold. Mme. Juliette Dika, Lil
lian Flti Gerald. Rose Botti. Wallace
McCuteheon, Jr.. Florida Forrest, Lou
ise Sylvester, Richard Freeman, Cor
one Uol. Gertrude Bryan and Percy
Helton. In addition to the cast there

charms are vocal as well as pulcnritud
The Midnight Son." Lew Fields'
"The Midnight Sons," at the Lyric the
atre, Jackson boulevard, Chicago, has
evidently settled down for a long en
gagement. The business has been ex-'
cellent and this musical show is caus
ing no end of comment. One of the
features is the theatre, a scene, by the
way, which shows a practical opera
house, with stage, orchestra seats,
tiers of boxes, balcony and gallery.
The central figures in "The Midnight
Sons" are Senator Constant Noyes, an
indulgent father; his four roving sons;
Mrs. Carrie Margin; Merri Murray, a
chorus lady; Pansy Burns, who won't
cook for everybody; Lillle Burns, who
won't cook for anybody, and 25 aidefs
and abetters. Senator Noyes desires
his sons to engage in business, with
the fond hope that they may lose mon
ey. One of them starts a shoe store,
another a hotel, and the third builds a
theatre for Merri Murray. All of the
ventures are fiascos. It takes two acts
and eight scenes, however, to finally
deplete the senator's exchequer, and
they only do so by giving a line of sup
pers to the respective ladies whom
they most admire. The cast includes
George Monroe, Harry Fisher, George
A. Schiller, Joseph M. Ratliff, Denman,
Maley, Maude Lambert, Stella Tracy
Willard Curtiss, Maria Harris, Alln
Brooks, Gladys Moore, and 125 others.
The Fortune Hunter." With the
definite announcement of the closing
iof its long and prosperous run at the
Olympic theatre, "The Fortune Hunt
er," with Thomas W. Ross in the lead
ing role is meeting vith such an In
creased demand for seats that capacity
business is predicted for the last three
weeks of its appearance in Chicago.
No other play ever has established
such records as Winchell Smith's de
lightful comedy of rural life. It is not
unusual for a play, especially of the
musical variety, to begin a run in Sep
tember and run to the following sum
mer, but warm weather usually puts
an end to the prosperous run. In the
case of "The Fortune Hunter" all prec
edents have been broken, for this play
began in mid-winter and continued the
biggest attraction in Chicago against
new plays coming to the other theatres
every two or four weeks, and found an
impetus rather than a drop in its bus
iness when summer arrived, continu
ing its prosperity when the other and
newer attractions were compelled to
close because of the heated period.
Mr. Ross and "The Fortune Hunter"
will carry with them the historical rec
ord of Chicago for non-musical plays,
recording 329 performances on the
night of the closing. Sept. 3. "The
Man From Home" held the former rec
ord with 323 performances, and It Is
not probable that another straight com
edy will be written in the next decade
that will be able to pass or approach
these two records. With Mr. Ross the
principal characters are taken by Frank
Bacon, Edward Saxom, Francis X. Con
Ian, Robert Lowe, Alma Belwin, Lento
Fulwell and Regina Connelly. When
"The Fortune Hunter" begins its tour
the entire Chicago company will go

PUZZLED IN PICKING TITLES
Stringent English Rules Make Se
lection Hard Task.
The seven new English peers put
on the birthday honor list by King
George are having trouble in picking
their titles. They may choose their
own titles unless they Infringe on the
accepted rules; otherwise the crown
will, in diplomatic language, com
mand the new peers to guess again.
The Erst rule is that after a title has
once been held by a member of the
royal family It will never afterward
be bestowed on a subject not of the
The second rule is that no peer rank
ing below no earl can choose for his
title the name of a county or a coun
ty town. There are a number of
counties vacant, including Flint,
Merioneth. BanCf. Clackmannan. Dum
barton. Kirkcudbright, Monaghan and
The next rule is that when a cer
tain designation once has been 'used
for a peerage, even if that peerage has
long been extinct, the title will not be
renewed for a peerage of lower de
gree. It was not until Lord Hawkes
bury. for instance, had been raised to
an earldom that the designation of
Liverpool was revived.
Another rule1 Is that where a "former
peerage Is in abeyance or under attain
der the title of it shall not be chosen
for a new creation, except by the heir,
because there Is always the chance the
attainder may be reversed. Lord Leith
of Fyvle desired to be created Lord
Fyvle. but the old peerage of that
name, now under attainder, stood in
If a new peer desires to take his sur
name as bis title he may do so. no
matter how many other living peers of
the same name there may be. Thus
Lord Russell of Kiliowen was so cre
ated, although there was already an
There are now living three Lords
Boyle. Bruce. Douglass. Hay. Herbert
and Hill, four Lords Grey and five
Lords Howard and Hamilton. For
this reason, although there Is already a
Lord Villlers, no objection will be
raised by the king If Sir J. de Villlers
chooses to become Lord Villiers.
To choose a territorial title the peer
must show a reason, as ownership of
the land. A manor title cannot be
chosen unless the new peer owns the
manor Itself. YV D. Mackenzie, who
owns the manor of Thetford, prevent
ed, by protest, the conferring of the
title of Lord Thetford on the subject
who is now Lord Fisher. Lord Michel
son bought the manor of Michelson to
qualify for his title.
Where a manor has been unfran
chised or ownership of a manor town
spilt up the representative of that
place in parliament has the right to
select the name for a title.
Many recently created peers have
chosen thennmes of London suburbs
as. for instance. Lord Battersea and
Lord Wandsworth. Lord Loreburn
took the name of a street in Edin
burgh. Lord Selby took bis wife's sur
name. Equal to the Best.

FOOD COLORS LATEST FAD.
Londoners Now Eating In Fashion-
Fashions are not confined to hats

tropolis are also exceedingly particular
that the food they buy shall be of the
Salmon, for Instance, remains un
sold if it is not the required shade of
deep rose. I f it Is too light no one will
have it. though dealers say its flavor
Is just as good.
In haddock an exactly opposite taste
prevails; only light colored haddock is
purchased, though tn right yellow
fish is of as excelle- ..allt as that
of pale cream color.
In poultry London Insists upon
white or black legged chicken aDd
will not buy fowls with yellow legs,
though they are Just as good. Gray
geese are scorned In favor of white,
though a countryman who knows
something of poultry farming will pre
fer the gray goose.
In eggs the brown variety reigns su
preme favorite, though they are not a
bit richer than white eggs. Pale
cheese and buttercup yellow butter are
also in great demand because their
color pleases the public.
Bright yellow bananas are far more
popular than the spotted fruit of paler
hue, which are of better flavor. Bright
colored apples and pears bring more
than brown pears or green apples,
which are Just as sweet, while grapes
with bloom on them are worth 12

Steamer Is Mosquito Proof.
The latest thing In steamships is a
mosquito proof craft specially designed
for use between Liverpool and West
African ports. Professor Donald Ross's
recommendations have been carried
out by the owners for mosquito proof
ing all living quarters. Copper gauze
fittings are provided for all doors, win
dows, side ports, skylights, ventilators
and passages to prevent the malaria
bearing mosquito entering.
Watering the Horse.
It Is allowable when n horse Is hot
to let him have three or four swallows
o cool water, but no more. The few
swallows will help cool him. and an
other limited drink may be given every
few minutes for four or five times,
after which he may drink his fill with
out danger. In careless or Inexpe
rienced hands, however, the only safe
way Is to let the horse stand for half
an hour or nore with no water until
he Is fairly cooled off. Country Life
