Billie Burke always has four photo
graphs on tha table in her dressing
room and any one privileged to visit
her behind the scenes while she is
playing “Jerry” in the Detroit opera
house this week will see them.
“Yes. that Is my art gallery.” •**
plained attractive Iflsw Burke. “When
I began I had only one—my mother
there In the middle. Mother and 1
hava always been a great deal to one
another. She believed in me long be
fore any one else did—long before 1
believed in myself. She kept me at it.
.Whatever I am. I owe chiefly to her
enoouragement. * Then that man on
mother’s left—that Is Louis N. Parker.
He gave me my first big 'boost/ He
insisted that I should play the title
role In his play. ’Mr. George/ the first
dramatic part 1 aver had. I'm sorry
to say that Mr. George’ was a failure.

thought well enough of my perform
ance to bring me to America to sup
port John Drew in 'My Wife/ The
other man—on mother's right—that is
Mr. Frohman. What 1 don’t owe to
mother I owe to him. The other wo
man Is Mrs. Catherine Chisholm Cush-

an American girl on the stage.”
“The Midnight Girl." a musical com
edy that abounds with popular faacin
atlng melodies, will be presented in
the Garrick theater for an engage
ment of one week commencing Mon
‘ day evening. Oct. 28, with George Mac-
Karlane as the leading ginger of sn
exceptionally capable company. Mr,
MacFarlane will be remembered for
hie splendid work In the .baritone
roles of the sll-stsr revivals of the Gil
bert end Sullivan operas. He will be
seen here In his original role of Gus
tave Crlquet. In “The Midnight Girl”
with Margaret Romalne in her orig
inal part of the “midnight girl.” Miss
Komaine scored a decided personal
success in that role last season In the
Forty-fourth-st. theater, In New York,
when she made her debut on the
tauslcal comedy stage after singing
for three years in the Paris Opera
Comique where ehe took Mary Gar
den’s place.
Speaking of the manner In which
she studies for the eccentric character
roles in which ehe has made a- name
,for herself, Dorothy Walter, now play
ing the mother in “Help Wanted,” In
the Lyceum theater said: “I have a
habit of mingling in street crowds,
walking leisurely, until some detail
about a woman’s back arrests my at
tention and 1 drop in behind her for
study, leise up the woman’a carriage,
her clothes, the varying poise of her
body, and take In every little detail of
her make-up, from a rear viewpoint,
even down to the condition of her
heels and the tilt of her hat My eyes
ara registering a thousand mental pic
tures of her In this short apace, and
by the time I have given my subjeci
a thorough study, my brain has begun
to ft ape out for me just how the wo
man will look from the front, and 1
“have a clearly defined idea of what her
face looks like. Then 1 quicken my
pace and pull' alongside the object pf
my Interest I have got so In the habit
of this that in almost every case th«
woman’s face, when 1 am In a good
position to size it up, la exactly wbat
my mental picture of her has led me
to expect. Later, If I am engaged to
play anew part. I recall a type and
know just how the woman will look,
how she will stand or walk, what tort
of clothes she will wear and how she
will wear them.”
