11 THEATRICAL NEWS Xext Season in Topeka Promises Exceeding Well. Many of the Best Attractions Are Already Booked, WILSON AM) DANIELS. The Two Favorite Comic Opera Comedians Will Be Here. "Uostonians" Dated, De Angelis and "eilsen Possibilities. The theatrical season of 1900-1901 In Topeka is decidedly promising as it now appears on the books of the Crawford management. So far a greater number of tractions have' been booked than has been true at this time in any pas; feasun in the history of the Crawford theater. And the best part of it is the fact that the present incomplete list in cludes u number of the larger com-I-anies. Manager Zehrung, who is asosciated with Manager Crawford in the man agement of the Lincoln theater, is now in New York looking out for the houses r.f the Crawford circuit. Hy the open ing of the season in September it is ex THREE perted that the list far the Crawford theat-r licit will be larger than that of ar.y previous year. It is quite probable that Topeka the ater giit.-rs will, during the coming Sea son, be so fortunate as to see a number of the big comic operas. Francis Wil son, Frank Daniels and the Bostonians are already booked, and the prospects of securing Jefferson De Angelis and Alice Nellsen for the Topeka theater are good. L)eAng-lis will visit the west with a new opera, and Alice Neilsen tind her company arep reparing for a transcontinental tour, presenting "The oFrtune Telller" as well as "The Sing ing Girl." and posisbly a new opera. Frank Daniels will be the tirst of the comic opera comedians to visit Topeka. He will be here early in the season with "The Ameer," his latest opera which lias proven a greater success tlun itlur "The Wizard of the Nile" or "The Idol's Eye." The diminutive comedian has not been in Tpeka. since the sea son before last, whe'.i he was seen in "The Idol's Eye." Hi: appearance al ways means a "capacity" audience. Francis Wilson, who was seen for the fust time in Topeka last season in "Krniinie" will have a new opera next tMiison. His latest opera "Cyrano da Brgerac" did not prove the success that was anticipated, and this fact was responsible for the revival of "Erminie." Mr. Wilson keeps several comic operas ahead, and is consequently always sure of a new vehicle when he wants it. Jefferson De Angelis is "The Jolly Musketeer" last seasim, and Alice Neil sen in "The Fortune Teller" the season bi fore, left such distinctly pleasant im pivssions that the possibility of their return is of much interest to theater Hoeis. "The Bostonians" may be sure of as appreciative an audience as saw them in "The Serenade" when they visit Topeka next season. "The Viceroy" will I f the principal opera of their repertoire during the coming year. I. overs of the legitimate on the stage will be interested In the announcement that ilme. Aiodjeska will be seen in this cttj next season in the sumptous revival f "King Johu." which the Wagenhals .-i Kemper eompanv are now preparing for her. It will he Mme. Modjeska's farewell tour, as after the season, it is anrouneed, she will return to her home in roland. Wagenhals & Kemper will also bring the elaborate production of "The Midsummer Night's Dream" in which Kathryn Kidder and Louis James vill appear in Topeka next season. The present list of bookings promises many farces to theater-goers during the coming year. A number of these are old acquaintances, such as "Why Smith Left. Home." "My Friend from India," etc., but several new constructions will also been seen here. Among these will be Harry Corson Clarke's new piece "What Did Tompkin Do?" The majori ty of the Hoyt farces are to be revived for next season, and will be seen in To peka. Among some of the attractions al ready booked are "The Belle of New York," "Sherlock Holmes," "The Pris oner of Zenda." "Zaza." "The Little Minister." Whitney's "Quo Vadis" and "The Sign of the Cross." DELL A FOX'S SAD PLIGHT. Was Once the Most Popular of Comic Opera Soubrettes. 'A writ'er in a Chicago paper, speak ing of the career of Delia Fox, who was pronounced insane and sent to an asylum a fuw days ago. says: "Little Delia Fox and the little Delia Fox curl were once at the heiaht of their glory. That once was not such a Very long time ago either not long as it is reckoned chronologically in months ! and years, longer, however, if meas ured as the gauge of a popularity which has vacillated many times since then to other ephemeral shrines. "When little Delia Fox sang her charming little songs in her charming little roles in her charming little comic operas, the queer little curl plastered smoothly down in the middle -of har forehead like the hair of the tiny girl who was good when, she was good and bad when she was horrid, she was al ways sure of the heartiest of greetings from the audiences in the theaters. She shared renown with Lillian Russell and with all the other queens and kings who held their merry court In the cen ter of the stage of opera bouffe. She had " a little subservient populace of her own and it praised her and laughed at her and' coquetted with her and winked its eyes back again in return for the wink in her twinkling optics and. clapped its hands in heartiest en thusiasm at each little verse 'of her catchy little songs. "It is a very different little actress who.lies ill and insane in an.asvlum at Wave Crest, Long Island, from the beaming, merry, exuberant Delia Fox of 'Wang' and later memories. The news of her breakdown chronicled from New York tells the ending of a story -of brilliant promise, of successful achievement and of rapid decline, de moralization and failure. Her stage career is little more than a dozen years old. "The physicians hold out no possible hope of her ultimate recovery. She may get better for a time, but the prob abilities suggest that the last call has arrived for the once merry actress. Her associates say she was good to travel with aid easy to liw with, and mis fortune laid its grewsome fingers on a lively little woman when it touched the head of Delia Fox of 'Wang' and 'The COMIC OPERA STARS WHO Little Trooner' Delia Fox curl.' -the Delia Fox of the GOODWIN ON MORALITY. Actor Says the Public is to Blame For Suggestive Plays. Mr. Nathaniel C. Goodwin, taking the reception of "When We Were Twenty One," as a basis, has been talking in San Francisco about immorality on the stage. In part he spoke as follows: "The nioriality of the stage is a rather ticklish subject for discussion or. dis course. In all climes, in all countries, and on all stages there have been ex ploited more or less decency and inde cencyit depends altogether on the point of view and so the only real, vital ques tion is, does the playwright take a view of morality that is in accord with the view held by his audience, or doesn't he? "Which brings us to another point of view. Is the playwright wrong in build ing a 'nasty' play? Is the public wrong in coming to see that play? And if both are wrong or both rl;iit, what are we going to do about It? "If the little Irish woman who keeps a fruit .stand at the corner of the street funis that the small boys of the neighbor hood like apples better than pears, she usually gets double the slock of apples and cuts down on the other fruit. Of course, she could go about it in the other wav and lay in twice as many pears as apples, and when the fruit rotted because she couldn't sell It and she didn't have the money, people would say: "It's no body's fault but hers.- Why didn't she keep what people wanted?' "Now. your playwright is the olid ap ple woman, if he has some nice, clean pears and he linds that a tart apple sells twice as fast, he is going in for apples. He's only giving the people what they want. "Now, vour playwright is the old ap people. They want the nasty things or a considerable portion of them do else they would not crowd the theaters when they know the nasty play has come to town. All of us. more or less, like a shock. We get in a rut of emotions once in a while, and anything which takes us out of it seems to give a certain amount of pleas ure. If the shock comes to our morals, all the worse for the morals, but why in the mischief we blame the shock I can t make out. It is not necessary for us to take It if we don't want it. It isn t obli gatory on us to see the nasty play any more than we are compelled to drink oOO glasses of whisky a day. but the public goes to see the nasty play, merely because it wants to see nastlness. And that s the public's affairs and it isn't the actor's." Urs. Davis' Generosity. The generosity displayed by Jessie Bartlett-Davis in offering to sing at the Masonic Temple theater next week and to donate the entire amount of her sal ary for the week to the Actors' Home fund is exciting commendatory remarks from critics and writers everywhere, says a Chicago exchange.Manager Mur dock has frequently endeavored to se cure the consent of Mrs. Davis for an engagement at the Temple, but she has steadily declined to go in vaudeville un til the opportunity was offered her to help the Actors' Home fund increase. Then she accepted. It is arranged that she will receive $1,000 for the week's en gagement, all of which she will donate to the worthy charity mentioned. To "Wed a Coronet. Jessie Mackaye coyly denies the soft Impeachment, but her associates i:n the De Wolf Hopper company insist that she is to wed a coronet, says a New York paper. Of course It isn't so. be cause an actress never tells fibs about herself. Miss Mackaye scored a hit in London that rivaled the fancy that the Englishmen took to the big comedian w ho headed the company. She admits that she has retired from the stage for good . Report has it that- she rejected proposals from the Duke of Manchester and snubbed Lord Cavendish when he evinced an inclination to transfer to her the esteem he once professed for Edna May. The identity of the titled person who will espouse Miss Mackaye is a deep secret. Mrs. "Jack"Wilmerding on the Stage. Among several society beauties who will next season display themselves on the local stage, says a New York ex change, is Marie Allen Wilmerding, a granddaughter of Commodore Vander bilt, better known as "Mrs. Jack" Wil merding, and a great friend of "Mrs. Jack" Bloodgood, who appeared at the Empire in- "The Conquerors." The two Mrs. Jacks still retain connection with prominent members of the 400, but to improve a scanty purse both have turn ed to the stage. Mrs. Wilmerding was to have appeared last season in "The Three Musketeers," but the part assign ed to her being too trivial she refused it, and instead began preparing herself for her new profession by studying at a well known school of acting, from which she will graduate into the big Frohman army next season. Paderewski and His Hands. How any great pianofore player keeps his hands supple has often been a mat ter for wonder, says Tit-Bits, but M. Paderewski, the king of pianists.has re vealed the whole secret. "The night be fore I play I turn my hands over to my valet, and he rubs my fingers until they tingle," declares M. Paderewski. "Then he takes one finger after the other and turns and twists it in the palm of his hand, always turning the one way. That makes the fingers supple, and keeps the knuckles in good working order. Last he rubs the palm of each hand very hard as hard as I can stand it. Just before I go on the platform to play I have a basin of hot water brought to my dressing-room. In this I immerse WILL VISIT TOPEKA NEXT SEASON. my hands. Hot! I should say so; just about as hot as it is possible for a man to stand it." So this is the way it is done. Theatrical Notes. Delia Fox is astonishing the doctors by her quick recovery from a seemingly hopeless becloudment of the intellect. William Bramwell. for two vears leading man with Eugenie Blair, hopes to star next season. J. K. Emmet intends to star in a Transvaal play, entitled "The Out post," in which he will impersonate a Boer hero. Sam Bernard may appear next season in the Lederer production of "The Mes senger Boy," or in the new farce which John Mc-Nally is writing for Klaw & Erlanger. Walter Perkins, the discoverer of De Souchet, is to tempt fortune again as a star in a dramatization of Mary Wil kins' novel, "Jerome, a Poor Gentle man." Mascagni has composed a hymn in honor of Admiral Dewey. He has be gun another opera, to be called "Julius Caesar," the libretto by Gabriele d'Annunzio. Blanche Walsh is now in Rome and during her stay in that city will seek an audience with the pope. Klaw & Erlanger announce that "The "Viceroy" will be the principal opera in the repertoire of the Bostonians next season. Richard Buhler, who has made a hit in "Quo Vadis," will play an import ant role in "Ben Hur" next season. "The Education of the Prince," the new play in which Anna Held was to appear next season, has proven to be a failure in Paris. Joseph Herbert has completed a mu sical comedy to be called "The Mag netic Girl." The rights to the piece have been acquired by Alfred Aarons. Rose Melville is to star again next season in "Sis Hopkins." It has been reported that a well known playwright in New York is at work on a new play for Miss Melville. T. R. Thalberg and Gerald Gurnev have completed a dramatization of Robert Louis Stevenson's novel "Treas ure Island," and will produce it at Glasgow in June. . Harriet Ford and Beatrice DeMille, who wrote "The Greatest Thing in the World" for Sarah Cowell LeMoyne, have just sold a new play entitled "The Awakening," to Julia Marlowe. George H. Broadhurst has finished a new farce, to be called "The House that Jack Built." It will be produced at the Madison Square theater, with Thomas A. Wise and Annie Yeamans in the chief roles. A parrot will be conspicuous in "Foxy Quiller." It will be trained to repeat certain lines and will respond to "cues." A French animal and bird trainer in New York now has the par rot in hand. "What Happened to Jones" must have startled the Australians. During a single week in Sydney something like $10,000 was take in. Charles Arnold, the veteran German dialect comedian, played the principal part. "Sherlock Holmes," with William Gillette in the star role, is doing well in New York. It has been running for eight months without a break or a change in the cast. David Belasco has Durchased "Nie andra" from its author, Russell Vaun, and Mrs. Carter will be seen in the play in this country next season. This is the play Mrs. James Brown Potter was so anxious to secure. "Quo Vadis" ended its London career last Saturday night, and the backer of the venture are said to have lost money. Its close resemblance to "The Mgn of the Cross" is said to have hurt its drawing powers. Louis. James will spend his summer vacation at Long -Branch at his new cottage, "Naboclish," which has just been completed at a cost of $30,000. Mr. James will be seen with Miss Kidder next season in a grand scenic produc tion of "A Mid-Summer Nighfs Dream," appearing as "Bottom." KathrynKidder sailed for Europe May 21. She returns in September to resume her starring tour with Louis James in a scenic production of "A Mid-Summer Night's Dream," appearing as"Ilelena," a role made famous in this country by Ada Rehan. Maclyn Arbuckle's stellar debut in Augustus Thomas' new play, "The Gen tleman from Texas," will be made at the Chestnut Street Opera House, Sep tember 17 next. The cast of "Ben Hur" this coming season will include William S. Hart, George Osborne, Richard Buhler, Fran cis Kingdon, Harry Weaver, Robert Mansfield, W. J. Kelley, J. M. F. Cook, Adeline Adier, Mary Shaw, Mabel Bere and Nellie Thorn. Minnie Seligman is to be leading lady of the new Greenwall stock company, which is to replace the Castle Square Opera company at the American thea ter. New York, In the fall. Sol Smith Russell will return to the stage in November, producing at the National theater, Washington, a new piece written specially for him by Mar tha Morton. "A Poor Relation" will continue on the road headed, as last season, by Frank Keenan, who stepped into the breach upon Mr. Russell's col lapse. Well denned rumors were current in New York during the past week that Corbett, the fighter, had bought an in terest in "Sporting Life" and would play Bob Hillard's old part the coming sea- son. Corbett's renewed popularity and the strength of the piece should make success certain. . Two new engagements have been madetfor"The Adventures of Francois," viz., Herbert Gresham and a dog. Dr. Mitchell's story gives prominence to the hero's poodle. The poodle for Henry E. Dixey's company was bought from a trainer now appearing on the New York Victoria roof, who will teach it the roie in the play. . Samuel F. Nixon, of the firm of Nixon & Zimmerman, has sent Leander Rich ardson a postal message, written at the Summit House, Pike's Peak, 14,147 feet above sea level, in which he writes: "I am up here prospecting for a syndicate theater, but the outlook is 'rocky.' All the people are not 'on the level.' This is a good place to dodge deadheads." Hetty Green, the "richest woman in New York," is preventing the rebuilding of the Columbia theater in Chicago, which lies west of her property. This playhouse was destroyed by fire a few months ago while Rogers Brothers were playing there. Messrs. Nixon & Zim merman have offered her in vain what' they regard as a goodly sum for her land. William Peters, the light opera com poser, is to bring action against Francis Wilson to compel the production of an opera called "Ba-Ba-Bum-Bum," the book of which was written by J. Chee ver Goodwin. Mr. Peters says Mr. Wil son accepted the opera for production a long time ago, but for various reasons held off and put other compositions in the foreground. Among others who have been engaged for the cast of "The Cadet Girl" are Paula Edwards, Harry McDonough.who made such a success in a female Irish part in "Little Christopher," and last season with Jeff de Angelis; Julius Ste ger, last seen here in "The Man in the Moon;" Virginia Earle, Toby Claudel, W. P. Carlton, Thos. Q. Seabrooke, Dan Daley, W. G. Stewart, the baritone of the Castle Square Opera company, and Helen Bertram. BURLINGTON ROUTE. New Through Train to Portland and Puget Sound.

HOWARD ELLIOTT, Gen'l Manager, St. Joseph, Mo, The choir boys of a certain Topeka choir went on a strike last Sunday, and the strike was most effectual. Sunday morning before the services the choir boys got into some kind of mischief, and the choir master tried to straighten out the difficulty. He hap pened to choose a boy who had noth ing to do with the mischief as the ring leader. The rest of the boys re sented it. They got together and planned a strike. The. boys took their places and the services began. They arose and sang very nicely. All went smooth. The choir master's wife sings soprano in the choir. The boys had decided to boy cott her. When it came time for the anthem, the piece de resistance of the services, the boys started in strong until the passage was reached where the soprano had a prominent part. The soprano started in strong but the boys stoDned. Not one opened his mouth and not a note was sung except by the soprano. The soprano looked around to see what was the matter, but kept on singing. The boys stood still and looked blank. The soprano kept brave ly on to the end, and when she finished and sat down the choir boys took their seats. the strike had been com menced, finished, and the boys won the revenge they were alter. It Is not the barber alone who can talk. There is a baker on Kansas ave nue who is gifted that way. A clerk went into the bakery this week and asked for ham and rolls for lunch. ses, certainly," the baker said . as he put the rolls in a bag. "You will like tnese buns, 1 know. They are li'esh, warm; in fact, are extra nice. They are good enough to eat alone. It is quite customary for people to come and get them fresh from the oven and eat them without anything eise. You care not for cold ham with hot bread, suggestively. "The rolls do look nice," she agreed nut i preter ham also. "To be sure, yes," he answered Then confidentially, as he uncovered denuded ham bone, "You see, I'm al most out of ham. There isn't a slice left. A big ham cuts to much better advantage than a small one. but thought this was large enough when I ordered it. , "If you can get me a nickel's worth it will be plenty," was the answer. "Yes, yes, certainly," he agreed, as he began cutting off small pieces and placing them on the scales. "You see, we alwars plan to have a ham baked Saturday morning to last over Monday noon, but today We are short. I have one in baking now that is partly smoked. Do you like partly smoked ham?" he asked, as he turned the bone over and began to scrape the other side. "I'm sure I don't know; I think not," was the uncertain reply. "You don't," very much surprised. "Why, they are considered very much finer than those that are baked direct from the brine. Now this one was taken and cooked without smoking, and it is not so good as the other kind." He tapped the scales, but there was not enough cut. so he began on the other end of the bone. "Now you take a ham that has been half smoked with hickory chips," he went on, "and you will find that it is much sweeter and drier than a pickled ham. Y'es, they are fine not that this one isn't good," anxiously; "this is as delicate as it can be without being smoked. This was excentionally well seasoned, and I know it will be satis factory." He tapped the scales again, but still the amount of ham was not sufficient to weigh them down. A perplexed look came over his face as his eyes went from the scales to the cleaned bone and back to the scales again. Then he looked relieved, and smiled. He reached over and placed on the scales the weight which he had fonrotten. The five cent weight wasn't enough. He put on the ten cent weight. It was still too light. When he put on an other weight it made a good fifteen cents worth. "Surely, I know not what I do." he said. "I scrape and scrape, till I think I must add the bone, and all the time I have no weights upon the scales. I never did a thing like that before. Yes, certainly, you have more ham than rolls. A dozen buns are now what you will take, not so?" But she seized her lunch and es caped. At one time the public school teachers of Topeka used the plan of punishing every offense by detaining the offender an hour after school in the evening, so it often happened that the rebellious pupils received two and even three hours to their debit during the day. There was enrolled in the eighth grade of one of the ward schools a dashing young lady who had come to Topeka to attend the high school but whose edu cational qualifications had been deemed insufficient for that institution. It was a bitter dose of medicine for her to leave to attend the grammar school in company with younger boys and girls. It made her considerable of a malcon tont )Tri chf rHd not take anv especial nains to strew her teacher's path with roses. As a consequence her name ap peared on the delinquent list with pain ful regularity. One evening in the early winter she was billed for a three hours' i , 1 v 4! . sit. Her teacher detained her for two ! hours and a half and then told her she might go as. she seemed to have been studying hard. i can t go home alone now," she an- i swered. "It's nearly dark and I am afraid after dark. You have kept me here and you will have to take me home." - The teacher was a young man not yet out of his twenties and this under the circumstances was not a pleasing situa tion for him, but he could not leave the timid young woman unprotected to find her way- home. Not a word was said until they reached the corner near the girl s home. Then the young lady broke the silence. "You may go back now, for I mustn't let mama see you with me. She doesn't allow me to keep company with young men." The teacher accepted the rebuke with good grace but did not insist upon enforcing the delinquent rule in the case of the young lady after that. The solicitors for a certain college publication, induced the proprietor of a Topeka dye works to place his adver tisement In their paper. The dye man was a German not thoroughly Ameri canized and held very fixed and pro nounced opinions about advertising in anything that contained the "ad" of another establishment of his - kind. WThen he let the contract he asked if they were doing business with any of ms competitors, and was answered In the negative, for he -was the first dye man they had interviewed. Concluding that dyemen were "easy" they went from his place of business to another dye shop and when the publication came out it contained tne card of three dyemen. The trouble began when one of the solicitors called on dyeman No. 1 to collect. "Vot kind of a swindler are you anyvay," said the German. "I look at that business and righd avay furst ding l see der name of dat man across der vay. I helb.you in your pusiness and you do mine dirt like dat. I pays nud ings. Shust you git right out or I goes vor der bollese." Neither argument nor the displaying of the contract were of any avail so the solicitor tried another scheme. He found a friend that had a suit that needed dyeing and had him take it around to the shop. When the work was complete the solicitor went with his friend to obtain the suit. Then another scene ensued which resulted in the dyeman losing his temper but keep ing the suit. The next step of the "ad" rustler was to go to a justice and bring suit. On the day for trial the German appeared ready to face his accusers. As the plaintiffs had a written contract and the defendant had nothing to show, it did not take long for the dispenser of justice to make his decree. "Now," said the justice, "you must give them the suit and also you have the costs to pay." "Cost to pay," said the German. "I have nudings to pay." Yes," replied the Justice, "you must pay the costs for bringing the suit." "But I brings no suit. Der is a misunderstanding. Dey brings de suit. It i3 no suit of mine. I have nudings to pay." The justice then informed him of the law concerning the matter. "Vail, I tell you vot I does so not to make any troubles, I pays half and dey pays half," answered the dyeman. He was informed that that would not suffice and that he must pay it all. When the man of colors finally con cluded that he could not change the color of the affair any he consented but not without remarking that "dis Amer ica is no free country. CONGRESSIONAL EPIGRAMS. Congressman Hamilton of Mfchigan. "There is no doubt that the dust from the wheels of some pepole's carriages is more annoying than that of others." "Human nature is about the same in its fundamental outlines from a dollar a day up." Let us not be seir-rignteous because we are hard up." 1 here is really no piety In being poor. "To pull down and destroy enterprise gives no man a days work except the agitator and the demagogue." Many. people mistaKe envy lor political economy." There, will probably never come a time when the moral regeneration of mankind can be accomplished by legislation." A Diole class and tne commute or ways and means have few points of . resem blance."
