AT THE ILLINOIS.
Western plays have been ths vogua
fcr several ? en sens arid they seem to
lore none of their popularity. One
of the newest product!oue,.the scene
of which axe lad in the giorfous west,
is "Where the Trail Divides," by
Robert Edeecn. " who- as a playwright
has proven as big a success as he is
as an actor. Jyir. ''Edeston's .'."Strong
heart" will always be lool;rd upon as
American Indian ever presented. . He
has made an educated Sioux the hero
of "Where the Trail Divides" and in
writing the play he proves that ho
has made a careful study of the char
acteristics of the Sioux, and has made
his hero a "man" a real American
who knows bows to love and hate. C. S.
Primrose made the production of
"Where the Trail Divides" an elabor
ate one. ' An exceptionally good cast
will portray Mr. Edeson's characters
at the Illinois Sunday. "
"Every woman," the- dramatic spec
tacle which has been transplanted upon
foreign soil and is now being played in
five foreign countries, wlll.be offered
by Henry w. Savage with one of the
most powerful companies of actors
and singers he has ever 6ent. on tour
at the Illinois, Oct. 21 and 22. In thi3
attractive novelty there' is not only
spectacle, music and drama, but a
suggestion of the ancient form known
as the "morality." That form was
eloquently made known on the Amer
ican 6tage a few years ago when Ben
Grset and a company, of English ar
t'.Bts, among them Edith Wynne Mat
thleron, presented "Everyman." Upon
"Everyman" Walter Browne, a New
York newspaper man, founded "EVery
woman." In the 20th cenury order

AT THE EMPIRE.
An excellently balanced bill is on
view at the Empire the last half of the
week, the five Gormans father, three
daughters and a son holding the' fea-
j tured position with a musical act The
Gormans, as instrumentalists, are art-
ists, and if the reviewer may be per
i mitted to offer a suggestion to them.
If is that their selections are too class
ical for the average vaudeville audi
ence. For instance, one of the girls
presents a comet sola in which she
displays ability in technical execution
i the real beauty of which can only be
appreciated by the educated musical
ear. However, she was warmly re
! ceived, as she deserved to be, but oth
ers of the family In their solo numbers
did not fare so well in the. favor of
the audience, simply because they did
not give numbers of the more popular
order. The Gormans could "knock 'em
'out of the seats." as the vaudeville)
I manager puts it, if they would turn
their instruments loose on a few bits 1
,of ragtime. Yet they have an offer-'
leg that is worth seeing. Devett and !
j Davall have a sketch that bristles with j
rich dialogue. They are man and wife, I
I following the life of the stage. Both
j are out of employment. The exchequer i
I Is exhausted. They occupy a room in j
a Cat. The landlord is crowding them 1
for rent You can partly imagine the!
rest. Aubrey Rich and Ted Leonora!
j have a neat and pretty singing and
dancing sketch. Vance and Vance are i
; a couple of chaps who present a smart
j talking and singing act, and Charles

j Flying Dutchman on the Bounding
, Rope." Ledegar creates considerable
