r ' AT THE ILLINOIS.
Dave Lewis, seen in former sea
sons as one of the principal charac
ters of "The Royal Chef and "The
;1b1 of Spice," and other good mu
sical comedies of the day, proved a
; delightful entertaiuer in the song
farce, "Don't Lie to Your Wife," in
Its presentation at the Illinois the
atre last evening. As a matter of
rfart, Lewis proved to be almost the
whole show, though those who aided
"him executed their parts capably.
'.Lewis, as Amos Doopledae. New
jYork architect, brings himself, his
: brother-in-law and prospective son-?ln-law
out of an intricate situation
by a few prevarications. While the
. wives and sweetheart of the men are
out of the city the men have an hi
; larlous time, are arrested and all
that sort of thing, make a date with
tome chorus girls and then are sur-
prised by the return of the women
the next morning. Woman's intui
tion, advanced by a realistic dream
that has come to Dooplcdae's wife,
J lead the women to suspect something
wrong. They go out to get even,
' have an hilarious time with a race
. track man, are arrested and get out
of It in the same way as their bus
j bands did. The part that the men
i played comes out through the pa-
pers. Through an accident, the per
i fldy of the women Is discovered, the
men assort their rights and get them
; Lewis keeps his auditors In a mirth-
; TL'l state through the ulav. He Is
j always springing something new and
has his co-actors laughing as well as
his audience. He even gets away
t with the old Jokes, telling them in
! such a way that they seem funny,
I even though they are ancient. The
audience that greeted the perform-
t ance was not as large as it should
have been. In order to bring tho
; good attractions to Rock Island it
J will be necessary for the public to
patronize them when they are here.
S. H. Dudley, the noted colored co-
I ncdian, who is a whole laughing trust
In himself, heads the popuiar "Smart,
j Kct" company at the Illinois next
, Monday. He will appear In an en-
"Baby Mine," Margaret Mayo's
merriest of comedies, which ran for
one solid year in New Y'ork, at Daly's
theatre, and which has already
reached its second year in London,
at the Vaudeville theatre, comes to
the Illinois. Jan. 29. As a laugh
producer "Baby Mine" is a big suc
cess. The comedy, unique in origin
and mission, fulfills the part it sets
out to as an instrument of roaring,
wholesome comedy. "Baby Mine"
tells a simple story of a young wife
berland, Orlando Daly and Frank
AT THE EMPIRE.
Manager Dolly of the Empire thea
tre has arranged to present a star
program commencing week of Jan. 15.
The program will be headed by Rice.
Bell and Baldwin, comedy acrobatic
comedians of exceptional order. Next
in importance will be David Living
ston & Co., in the comedy playlet en
titled "The Cattle Thief.'" This is said
to be one of the strongest comedy
dramatic playlets now seen in vaude
ville. Ellna Gardiner, in impersona
tions, 1b reminiscent ' of the famous
Bertie Bowler and will undoubtedly
prove the laughing bit of the program.
The two Longfellows are well named
and present an eccentric dancing spe
cialty that is declared the limit for
that class of work. Stanley L. Hall,
a monologist 'will complete the pro
gram for the first half of the week.
The Empire's heating equipment had
its "first thorough test during the
present week's cold spell, and it made
good, the house having been comfort
able at every performance.
AT THE GRAND.

production of Edmund Day's fa

ririva hr hhnd to another city 1 seen at the Grand tomorrow, Mon-
whence he is coaxed back through day and Tuesday. This play, with
the help of friends who come to theirs heart interest, thrills and start

features which form the success of
this excruciatingly funny play.

York) success, "Snobs," the comedy
by George Bronson-Howard, which
took New York by storm and dem
onstrated Mr. Mclntyre's r:ght to the
stellar rank to which he was promot
ed by Henry B. Harris. In "Snobs"
the big comedian will be seen as a
milkman turned to duke. As the
milkman he has never been touched
by the arrows of the nnl'.ed God but
as a duke he soon falls in love and
makes love much as one imagines a ,
milkman would but with great success.
Mr. Mclntyre is essily given the
greatest opportunity of his career
in "Snobs," which is conceded to be
one of the comedy hits of the pres
ent season. Manager Harris has
seen to it that his newest star has
adequate support and the cast in
cludes Myrtle Tann-hill, Eva Mc
Donald, Marie Fitzgerald. Katherine
Stewart, Roy Fairchild, John Cum-

"The Round-Up." The battle scene
is almost appalling In its realism,
with shot and shell and gatling gun,
and it is worked up to a climax of
overwhelming excitement. The scene
of the last act at Sweetwater, pre

and he rushes savagely about the
room. His wife asks him if he is
looking for his umbrella which she
hands him. The count promptly
breaks tho umbrella and tears off
into the other rooms looking for his
rival. Immediately the countess
lights another cigaret. The lamp is
low now and the countess sings a
beautiful "Cigaret Song" a tender,
romantic melody. After a while the
count appears at the window out

the window as the countesa hides
