AT THE EMPIRE.
Emma Cams continues to feature at
the Empire In the bill of the last half
which is In many ways superior to
that of the previous three days. The
one and only Emma has been prevail
ed upon to remain in our midst over
tbe week, in spite of the alleged press
agent war which threatened for a time
to sever diplomatic relations between
Rock Island and the Distillery city, in
a battle for supremacy and the pos
session of Miss Carus. Miss Car us
has an entirely ' new repertoire of
songs. That rag croon, "All Night
Long," met with a big ovation last
evening, as did a new rag entitled "On
Picnic Day," a worthy successor to the
"Circus Day" song. By special re-
i quest "The Rosary" was sung by M16S
t arus. Her rendition was beautiful
and artistic. "That's How I Need
Vcu" has Btlll been retained asd
meets with as warm a reception as
was accorded in the first three days.
The most refreshing and really enjoy
able act which has been seen on the
Empire stage this season was pre
sented by Irwin and Herzog, who are
billed as "Those .Minstrel Fellows."
Both have excellent voices, good per
sonalities and that happy faculty of
putting their stuff over. They pre
sented a real ragtime treat which
warmed the cockles of many a heart
which has been yearning for some real
syncopated melody usually confined to
the Chicago rialto. The writer has
never been able to enthuse a great
deal over the song, "When the Jr.d
nlght Choo-Choo Leaves for Alabam,"
in splfe of the fact that one Irvff.g Ber
lin is the author thereof. Many ac
tors and actresses, both alleged and
benaflde, have waded through this
n.dody in a fashion at previous per
fc rmances In the trl-cities, but tue song
hr.t always seamed to lack the
"runeh." Last night all previous
opinions were cancelled, obliterated
aiid rendered null and void. After hear
ing Irwin and Herzog sing the AiaTjam
j song we decided that life waa still
worth the living. The way they put
; i over, hurled it far out past the foot
lights ar.d made it cling, was u treat
and a revelation. Last night fhe
audience could not get enough of
these men and there was some dissat
isfaction at the extreme brevity of
their act. One of the most beautiful
fe atures ever introduced here- ws the
living reproduction of the world's
greatest paintings by Millet's models.
The poses were excellent, the setting
authentic and the entire effect artis-'
tl?. Among the paintings reproduced
b .- the living models were "The Echo." I
"Alone" and "The Angelus." The act
is excellent. Charles Bigney, the hu
man fish, eats bananas, drinks milk,
sn okes a cigar and does many other
novel stunts under some four feet of
A-ater. Mr. and Mrs. Bennett pre
sented a playlet, "The Master." Two
reels of motion pictures begin and
conclude a performance "i.hich is a
