AT THE ILLINOIS.
Alfred Cooper, who is distinguishing
himself by his clever portrayal of Tom
Wilson, the country boy in Henry B.
Harris' production of that name, was
originally engaged to play one of the
minor roles. But at one of the final
dress rehearsals just before the com
edy was produced at the Liberty thea
tre. New York, the actor who had been
engaged for the leading role was rush
ed to the hospital to be operated on.
Cooper jumped in at a few minutes'
notice and gave such a clever perform
ance that he was immediately engag
ed and has been playing the part ever
since. "The Country Boy" comes to
the Illinois Feb. 6.
Frank Mclntyre, in "Snobs," a satir
ical farce by George Bronson Howard
which was acknowledged to be the
first real comedy hit of the present
season in New York, will appear at
the Illinois Feb. 11. Mr. Mclntyre,
who is now in his first season as a
star, will be remembered as the orig
inal of James Forbes' comedy, "The
Traveling Salesman." and as the fat
drummer In this play he convulsed
audiences in all parts of the country
for vears. His role in "Snobs" is en
tirely different, for it reveals him as
milkman, who Is discovered to be the
greatest nobleman in England, with an
enormous fortune and five or six mar
ble castles. His descent upon society
furnishes the fun of the play and the
sight of a fat milkman drinking tea
and exchanging bon mots with society
debutantes can be readily imagined as
something rich. Henry B. Harris, Mr.
Mclntyre's manager, has mounted
"Snobs" with his usual care, and has
in addition 6urrounded his newest star
with a slendid support, which includes
Myrtle T.-innehill, Eva McDonald, Kath
erine Stewart, Orlando Daly, John
Cumberland, and others.
"Mutt and Jeff" will be presented at
the Illinois by a company of more than
fifty people, riot including the large
number of supernumeraries or the cho
rus of pretty girls that will be with
the production. Manager Hill states
he toured the country in an endeavor
to select players especially fitted for
the various roles and claims to have
succeeded wonderfully. The charac
ters of "Mutt and Jeff," It is promised,
will be as real as they have appeared
"Baby Mine," Margaret Mayo's com
edy hit. which kept New York in con
vulsions of laughter for one solid year
at Daly's theatre and which is mak
ing London laugh as it never laughed
before at the Vaudeville theatre, comes
to the Illinois Jan. 29. "Baby Mine"
is one of the most laughable comedies
ever produced on any stage, and in at
tempting to describe it every adjective
in the dictionary that conveys the idea
of laughter In any real form is dragged
out of its hiding place. Some say it is
"hilarious," others will admit that it
is "rollicking," while others express
their opinions of the comedy by saying
that it is "cyclonic," but all will agree
that it is one of the funniest plays
ever written. "Baby Mine" comes
here under the direction of William

AT THE GRAND.
The attraction at the Grand tomor
row night will be Frederic Thompson's
production of "The Spendthrift," the
play dealing with the extravagance
and foibles of a society loving wife.
While full of., dramatic strength, the
play also abounds in good nature and
plenty of comedy. It was written by
Porter Emerson Browne, who also
wrote "A Fool There Was," and It ran
for 22 weeks in New York. The cast
here will include Thais Ma'grane, Lio
nel Adams. Edwin Holland, Sumner
Gard, Guy D'Ennery Alice Kelly, Kate
Jepson, and Eleanor Woodruff.
Alice Lloyd, the famous English
singing comedienne, who has been
seen in this country exclusively as a
vaudeville headliner, will make her
first appearance in Davenport as a mu
sical comedy star at the Grand opera
house next Friday night, in Little
Miss Fix-It," the tuneful and very much
out of the ordinary comedy described
bv Alan Dale as "a laugh or a song
hit every minute," and which played
an all summer run in Chicago follow
ing a four months' engagement at the
Globe theatre. New York. Werba &
Luescher engaged Miss Lloyd for the
title role of the play, thinking her the
best suited for the character of any
woman on our stage. The many admir
ers of this delightful actress will be
glad to know that, during the action of
the play, she will sing all of her latest
song hits, among them "Have You Ever
lxed Any Other Little Girl," "Cupid "
"The Hobble Promenade," "Splash
Me," etc. She will also be prominent
in the big sensational dance number,
"The Newport Turkey Trot," which
has been taken up recently by the fash
ionable smart set of New York and its
favorite seaside resort, and which is
said to be quite the most fascinating
of the now numerous terpsichorean
oddities. In the strong supporting
company are Lionel Walsh, James C.
Iane, Frederic Santley, Frank Shan
non, Grace Field. Nellie Malcolm.

' ANN A' HELD TO SEEK DIVORCE.
I Seattle, Wash., Jan. 24. Anna

ilute divorce against her wealthy
manager-husband, Florenz Ziegfeld,
IJr., of Chicago. He did not accom-
claimant to that title In the state of
Illinois. Both wrestlers report excel
lent condition and both are ready to
weigh in at 14S pounds or less tomor
row morning at 10 o'clock. Collins
writes that he will arrive tonight with
"Kid" Fisher, he who is to wrestle
with Harry Brondell of Davenport in
the semi-windup. The other match is
between Young Beel of Rock Island,
the Greek's wrestling partner, and
Billy Von Dohlen of Davenport.
MATCH GOOD FOR HIM.
Nicholson accounts for his excellent
condition because of his match Mon
day night with Jack Hartman the
heavyweight wrestler, at Keithsburg.
When Hartman saw Nicholson Mon
day he said that he would be glad to
give Nicholson a handicap. Nicholson
lauehed and said he would take his
chances and give him a run for his
monev. And so they hopped into the
midst of the fray. What Nicholson
lacked in weight he made up for in
speed and endurance. He was the
aggressor through the whole first
match. He caught Hartman by sur
prise and toppled him with a crotch
and half nelson hold. The size of the
other man was too much for the Greek
and he lost the next two matches in
3S and 55 minutes, respectively.
nOTII WORK HARD.
But with all that he had one grand
workout, and is counting more than
ever on making Collins his victim to
morrow night. On the other hand,
Collins says he is -going to down the
Greek. He has not been plodding
through the snow and slush of Chi
cago every morning for weeks for
nothing, not to mention the hours that
he has spent in the handball courts
and the wrestling matches with ama
teurs. EVENLY MATCHED.
Take size, speed, record, condition.
nerve, ability and everything else that
counts most in the makeup of a wrest
ler, and you could travel for days and
not find a pair more evenly matched.
The fact was recognized when this bill
was framed up for Rock Island. If you
love the mat game, and even if you do
not, you can hardly afford to pass this
opportunity by. Rock Island is to be
given an opportunity to see a good
match and it is up to the fans to
grasp the chance. Already a big block
of seats has been sold, and, what has
pleased the management of the Illi
nois, some women have reserved seats.
