Good Bill At Empress
Many words may fail to suggest
the thrills, the emotions, the variety
and the pleasure the Empress bill
offers this week. As a head lino act,
one of the more pretentious musical
tabloids holds the distinguished posi
tion. "The Incubator Girls,"- with
Charles Wayne and Gertrude Des
Roches is considered the best of all
the musical tabloids seen in a long
time. The Bcene opens with Wayne,
the bally-hoo faker, calling attention
to the "incubator babies on exhibition
on the inside," Fifi Marcel (Gertrude
Des Roches) comes along with her
sister's baby and Bends it into the
incubator to be ''made Into a girl."
Clever Songs, sparkling wit, attractive
costumes and the eunique stage set
tings -add materially to the splendor
of the production. "White Eagle,"
the feature of Prof. Wallace's collec
tion of Australian Cockatoos, is no
doubt the wonder of Empress patrons.
This bird seems to possess human in
telligence. The eccentric musical
part of the bill is well looked after
by those peerless performers Berry
and Berry. They introduce a degree
of comedy in every line they speak.
Dena Cooper with Walter Robinson
and Reg Sheldrick show to good ad
vantage in a dramatic episode called
"The Confession." It is filled with
real heart stirring situations. Min
strelsy holds some sway to this week
for "Smiling Joe" McGee, has brought
with him a big budget of funny ma
terial which is dispensed in a most
numerous manner by this "king of
black face comedians." The new pro
gram beginning on Wednesday Is an
other one of the costly kind, In fact
Manage McCoy vouches for the state
ment that it is even more expensive
than the one now in operation. As the
top notcher, one of the biggest things
in vaudeville will be hero. It Is a big
musical tabloid called, "A Night On A
Roof Garden," with twenty singing
and dancing artists, most of them
girls. Others who will make up the
bill are Green-McHenry and Deane,
real ragtimors from Frisco; Jura,
Reed and St. John, in Colonial pas
time; Ward Clare and Company, will
be seen in "The Twin Flats; Rus
sel and Church, will present the skit
"From Society to the Bowery;" Chap
man and Berubo are hand-to-hand
A few days ago the first voters at
one of our Indiana colleges had a se
cret ballot for President and Governor.
The so-cal'ed Republican ticket named
at Chicago in June received 50 votes
in a total of 613, or a little over 8 per
cent. The remaining votes were al
most qually divided between Wilson
and Roosevelt. Beveridge, for Gover
nor, received 369 votes. The Demo
cratic candidate received 92 votes and
the Republican candidate 52. The'

who look to the future, Instead of
