That charming German dialect eamedi".
enne. Miss Mattie Vickers. who will
shortly be seen here in her new comedy,
"Edelweiss," has achieved for hernelf the
proud distinction of bting a ' delightful
entertainer, off, as well as on the stage.
When resting from her arduous labors
after each season, she is usual; fo :ni at
her pretty and comfortable home in Ca.
cago, where, during her vacations, she
spends most of her time, entertaining her
many friends, professional and otherwise.
Miss Vickers is the only actress wl o hss
the entire field in. her own particular
characters in German dialect.
The St Louis Globe-Democrat says of
Miss Mattie Vickers has evidently not
lost ber popularity in St. Louis. After an
absence of three years, she opennd at
Pope's yesterday afternoon for a week's
engagement, and the house was crowded
to the walls Then again at nigbt every
peat and all of tne ava:Uble standing

VickeiV new one. E Jelweiss. and it. took
the fcouse ty storm. It is an entertain
ment of marked romantic interest and full
of fun. There i9 nothing boisterous
about it. Much of the comedy is of a
delicate character, but the audience yes
terdav were quick to catch on to the
points, and 'here were o"ne of then, that
were not appreciated. Edelweiss my be
put down as a success, the best play Mis
Vickers ever had. N-itural is every thins
she does, this plav gives h"r surroun lings
which bring out this naturalness in a way
that makes it felt upon an audience. Her
company is a capable one in every way.
