Prom the time tho curtain raised on tho first play until after It fell after tho last ono there was not ono dull moment In the program. In Josh nilllngs' famous words, "Ev erybody dono himself proud." The first play was a pleasing llttlo sketch, "Tho Maker ot Dreams" by Ollphant Down. Lyndall Jacobs as Ploretto, was soon tripping light ly over the stage setting a table, making tea and warming tho slip pors before tho fire for Pierrot. Pier rot, well played by Helen King, came singing In, dreaming of' a beautiful lady without a soul that hnd tfmlled at him as ho sang that day. He saw little of beauty or cheer In his own llttlo flat and disregarding Pier otto's charms and advances went forth again to seek - tho unknown, hard hearted beauty who had smil ed at him earlier in tho day. The Makor of Dreams, Frances Middleton, camo In while Pierrot was' gone and found Pler.ette crying. When Pierrot camo back Ploretto was sent to do some shopping and tho Maker ot Dreams gave Pierrot tho bill ot sale for his dream, a fair haired, blue eyed lady with a soul. To make a long story short, when Pierotto came back, Pierrot found that Bho exactly filled the bill and all ended happily. In the next play, Beauty and tho Jacobin, by Booth Tarklngton, Mary Knight as Anne, do Laseyne, T. E. Longstreth as Marquis do Valney, Uticrault, her brother and Sybyl Morgan as Elolso d'Anville, their cousin and former, fiance ot de, Val ny, wero seen In a cheap rooming house in Bologne In 1793 trying to forgo passports out of Franco so that they could escapo from tho Ja- ,.cobins who were then proscribing and beheading all nobility of thoir class that could be caught. The fair Elolso was somewhat obstre perous, proclaiming herself ono of the people and In no Mcai. of the guillotine. She objected to all the preparations for flight and loudly defamed her cousin and former fl unco for his cowardly flight. Then came tho sound of martial music and entered Charles Fern and William Balthls as Dossonvllle, Valsln's aide. After much conver sation Valsln, who was then In ab solute charge of Bologne with pow er of llfo and death over tho sub jects, proclaimed that ho had spo clal grievances against de Valny for former Injuries and Intended to have him beheaded. Tho fair Eloise woke up to their danger at last and of fered to marry Valsln If he would protect her frlenls. Her wrath when turned down gave Valsln an idea. He decided that tho most subtle rje vonge he could tako on do Valny was to get him morrfed to Eloise. He maneuvered so that all escaped as women and the curtain fell as Valsln fell exhausted Into a chair, laughing at tho revenge he had ex acted. All tho actors played thoir parts admirably. Tho last play, "Suppressed De siros," by Goorgj Cram Cook and Susan Gluspell, was a satire on psycho-analysis. Beatrico Lano as Hen rietta and Di T. J. Morgan as Ste phen Brewster, her husband, wore soon sotting at the breakfast table fussing over psychoanalysis. Stovo was decidedly opposed to tho art which Henrietta won trying to forco upon him at ovary occasion. Jus, then Floyo Mldklf? as Mabel, Hen rietta's sister, who had come from Chicago to visit them, came to break fast. In a very shor.t tlmo Henrietta , had discovered that Mabel ought to be "psyched" and hud cited the ex amples of several of her friends that, had been told by tho Infallible psycho-analyzer that thoy should pnrt with their husbands. Steve, in desperation, goes off to bo psych ed too. In the second scono Steve comes In and gently Informs Henrietta that tho doctor of psycho-analysis had told him that he had u sup pressed doslro to leave hor.

A gasoline lamp In one ot the Japanese barbershops burst Into flames about 10 o'clock Saturday night and blazed merrily away, while the proprietor, too excited to do anything, stood In the room as if fascinated by tho grandeur of tho spectacle. A party of boys' passing at the time rushed into the build ing, threw a blanket over the blaze, and smashed the lamp to extinguish it. A piano for tho local National Guard armory! Sounds strango, does n't It? But It is a fact.
