Actor Who Wooed Among Cof
fins Fails to Win Decree on
Forced Marriage Story

NEW YORK. March 2.—Here is the
last chapter In the “Romance in an
Undertaker's Shop." written in the
supreme court hr Justice Qiegerich.
George Simms, a vaudeville actor,
flirted in a moving picture show with
a comely young woman, who was
later introduced to him as Mrs. Laura
Boder, widow of August Boder, late
in tho undertaking business in Brook
lyn. Boder willed the undertaker's
shop to his wife.
Over the cofltns, the court was in
formed. Simms carried on an ardent
courtship, even assisting the fair
widow at funerals, finally, on Oct.
10. 1910. the actor married the widow
and was welcomed to her home, it is
staled, by her three children.
Simms asked Justice Qiegerich to
annul the marriage on the ground
that he had been trapped by the wid
ow, her father, and a lawyer. He said
he never would have consented to the
marriage, if she had not told him her
father would shoot him if he did not
meet her at the church. The widow
denied this and testified Simms had
pleaded again and again with her to
be his bride.
The tale Simms told the court had
many of the features of a dime novel
He said he had called upon the widow
in her undertaking establishment
many times, but had not proposed
marriage. One day her father came
into the shop, seised him by the
throat and directed an accompanying
lawyer to telephone for a minister.
Simms managed to get away this
time, but a few flays,, later on the
widow appeared at the stage door and
told Bimms that her father would
surely shoot him unless there was an
Immediate wedding. Simms said he
was so afraid he went at once to a
minister and was married. He said
he refused to live with his wife and
ever since has been separated from
The end of the story is recorded In
Justice Giegerlch's dismissal off
Simms' annulment action. The court
ssld the story was too Improbable to
be believed.

REDDING, Cal.. March 2. -The
streets and ruins of the old town of
Shasta, once the most prosperous gold
mining camp In the state, are being
mined fqr gold and coin. For weeks
Perry Davis and Harry Paige have
been making $lO a day each.
They are panning, rocking and
slulceing underneath the sidewalks, in
the ruina or the Lrick buildings that
line the west side of the “good old
town," and In Main-st itself. They
recover not only gold nuggets and
gold dust, but stiver and gold coins.
In the good old days one could
scarcely walk up Main-st. of 9haat«
for the jam or pack animals and the
crowd of tnlnerj on their way to the
placer diggings osar by. Oold dual
was plentiful. The miners spent
monfey like princes.
No one claims the brick buildings
tbst have stood tenantiess for years.
Davts and Paige have ripped up the
floors and worked over the rubbish
they found underneath. Tbrcwn into
the sluice-boxes or else panned out
by hand, this rubbish bss yielded
nuggets and r..*lns. Dimes by the
score have beei recovered, some of
them dating back to lIU, and none oi
them being of more recent mintage

An excellent program by Nedder*

Grieg s “Poor Gyut’* suite, Massen

of the more familiar passages in Bi

numbers and were splendidly render

the days when this charming and tune

! Thurston and an army of imps up
set the laws of gravitation, natural
physics and reason this week in the
Lyceum. You don’t see the imps but
you can’t get away from the results
<of their activities.
j For some strange reason there
seems to be room in this country for
but one great master of modem
magic at a time. With the passing
of Hermann and Keller, the mantle
falls on the shoulders of Thurston and
he wears it exceedingly well.
From the deft sleight-of-hand that
snatches cards from the air and rab
bits from tbe back of indignant spec
ators’ coats, to the complicated won
ders that cause a piano, musician and
platform to disappear Into space, or
a donkey, a girl and a youth to ma
terialise from the same intangible
origin, his work is marked by the
: sure touch of the master hand,
j Not less than a score of very large
mechanical tricks in which a full
stage la used are presented, and each
has a feature of Its own that holds
tbe interest. One presents a full
grown Hon In a great cage where a
moment before a slim young girl was
standing on a bare platform, another
causes a trunk to be hurled from the
very top of the theater auditorium to
the stags and from it step two peo
ple who a moment before were locked
I dering audience. There are many
I feats of magic aa mysterious, and
S among them are featured “The Tub
{of Diogenes,” tbe “Levitation of Prln
; cess Karnac,” ths “Prisoner of Can
iton," and “The Phantom Plano.”
Thurston adds to tbe enjoyment cf
; the entertainment by a steady stream
of “patter” and a distinct vein of hu
mor pervades the entire perform
ance. Laughter la as constant aa the
wondering “obe” and “ahs.”
The entertainment la unusual and
unlike many of Us kind never allows
the interest to flag. A special fea
ture has been added to Thurston’s
own work by the introduction of a
troupe of Parisian pantomime acro
bats, dancers and Instmmsntallsta

In the play Nobles Is a typical Amen
can drummer who introduces staid
British society to that national element

quettish and sweet slip of an English
aristocrat, Monica Ryvera. Roy Wal
ling impersonates Lord Ryvers, who
prefers to be thought only a strag
gling young artist. Miss Stater aa
Lady Ryvers has a role which .permits
her to display her talent for emotional
work. Russell Brady earned hie usual
measure of “hisses’’ from tboee who
take their drama seriously. Harry A.
