strictions of space and time allotted for
the cursory review that followed the per

the matter Is pondered upon, the inoro
does the opinion grow that the horse that
tried to kick the econery to pieces at tlio
eloee of the first act was Inspired by al
most human Intelligence. He was at least
nctlns; with "horso sense," and had the
Messrs. A born used as much In their own

great deal more satisfactory. Bo far as

casions reirrct that the Kllrabothan era
has not been extended to these days In
ofar as ppera is concerned. One recalls
Bembrlch, Caruso, and others singing; at

With beauUful and costly stage setting,
one looks for something uncommonly
ood In the way of actlns. singing or
whatever Is to bo displayed. Here .ho
hope, waa certainly broken; the word of
promise was forgotten. One does not like
to set out upon a categorical exhibition
of the faulU of the performance, for they
yr too many. The great fault Is, perhaps,
the utter Inability or tho principals, with
the single exception of Florian. who nad

In the line of acting were painfully ama

a speech at tho conclusion of each per

their' attendance, concluding with, (to
quote Mollle), "If you llko the show I
want you to tell your friends. If you
do not like it, go out and Knock It." If

management of such a wonderful woman.
"The moat famous cartoon comedy

phraseology, hut If you follow the career
of "Mutt'Hd Jeff" from Its Inception,

people each are now playing the rJece In
the four corners of the t'nltrdStatrs.
and all are playing not only to capacity
business, but are creating records In

entertainment offered Is giving satisfac

so famous a theme. "Gules of laughter,"
"shrieks of merriment" 'begin with, tho
first appearanco of , these two funny
fellows and continues, throughout the
two and one-half hours of hilarious fun.
"Mutt and Jeff" will 'make a; personal
visit to the Brandels' theater for an en
gagement of threo nights,' beginning Sun
day matlnen. A carload. of magnificent
scenery constructed to please tho eyo
embellishes the general effect. A bovy
