On condition that ha marry before ha
li It, Jimmie Wionnon will Inherit a
fortune. But although Jtmmte lei a woman
Inter, he la :o a sport; to he decides
to take a chance." He takea aeven
chancea In fact with aa many different
malda, each of whom In turn reject his
pronoiali. The hour of hla thirtieth
birthday approaches, and It b through
the unexpected Intervention of a friend
that Jimmle finally accompllnhea the
talk at before him and gels the real
woman of his choice Into the bargain.
fluch li the material out of which
Rol Cooper Megrue wrote "Seven
Chancea," which David Belaaco Droduced
at the Otorse M. Cohan Theatre laat
cvenlnr. The Idea for the play was
not wholly original. That much was
freely admitted. "Seven Chancea" la In
reality a itaire version of douvemeur
MOrrii'a short story "The Cradle
fastener'' and was tried out by
Mr. uel-sco last season under the
title of "The Lu.iVy Fellow." But
the play hud been written before
that by Mr. Mcgrue, and last
thrht'i nfferlnn was a rewritten ver.
won of the original. So "Seven Chances"
hi been ulnioat two years In arriving at
a metropolitan first performance, a fate
which often befalls productions under
ine direction or Mr. Belaeco. since the
manager l.i well known to keep many
plays "on the shelf" until he can give
hit bet attention to them.
It was .1 foregone conclusion that do
effort would bo spared to put "Seven
Chances" on the stage In the best Be
laico manner, nnd therefore the audience
which nembled last evening was In nn
nay dls.irpolnted. Stagecraft Is an art
In which .Mr. lleluaco has no equal, and
alt the painstaking care which has
chir.icterlieil hi previous productions
w manifested In this one.
He did not. however, stop short at
mere scenery and lights. Important as
thev are. n excellently well balanced
company had been selected to extract all
the humor from Mr. Megrue's lines and
i:u.illon. Including KVank Craven,

It was In a familiar style of play that
these artists were seen last night. For
Rol Cooper Megrue, clever as he Indeed
l.i when It comes to the manipulation of
theatrical contrivances and for the un
doubted effects that are carried out. Is
not after all the great American play
wright for which managers In this coun
try have long been seeking. Mr. Megrue
lins the mechanical art of playwrlghtlnr
down to Its finest possible point and
therein does his art excel as It did In
"Seven Chances."
The story upon which the play Is
founded 'had enough humorous situations,
however, to mnlte the dramatisation In
Mr, Megrue's capable hands a wholly
acceptable bit of polite comedy along
.the lines of Mr. liclasco's last success,
'The Boomerang," nnd to assure It plenty
ot public patronage.
II amor Seasoned With Suspense.
There la much cleverness In "Seven
Chances." lota of humor, laughable sit
uations and a very good order of wit, not
to speak of suspense In just enough
quantity to make the piece highly Inter
esting at all times; hut after all, It Is
the mechanlcalness of the play which
rredomtnatee, though It does not mar.
Mr. Belasco's company did much to
make the play the" success which It
should obtain. Kronk Craven is a come
dian of excellent attainments and he dis
played them lth no mean ability In the
portrayal nf Jtmmte Shannon, who finally
wins a bride and a fortune at one nnd
the same time. Carroll McComas, who
was seen about a season and a half ago
In "Inside the Lines," made the best ' f
rather limited opportunities which were
provided her. She wait 'pretty and vl
v.icluus lit all tin es and was charming
as the central feminine character of the '
play.
At for the seven maids who were the
recipients of Jimmic shannon's protesta
tions, they were nil that a mere man
could dealre. Otto Kruger, who Is un
derstood to have first come to Mr. Be
lasco's attention when appearing under
the management of Cohan & Harris In
"YounK America" at the Astor Theatre
last season, enslly .ranked along with
Mr. Craven In the excellence of hli per
formance, nnd It Is to bo rrcretted that
he has only been loaned, for this play for
a limited time.
All of those things served to keep the
audience In roars of hearty laughter
through the two or more hours of the
play, and they Insisted upon a speech
from the prcducer ufter the second act.
A large majority mut have left the
theatre with the firm -belief that "Heven
Chances" Is, another "Boomerang" and
deserves to be placed In the first rank
among the plays that have thus far been
put upon the boards this season.

Westerners in the Stampede
Spurred On to More
Thrilling Stunts.
Full permission to bulldog any steer
In the Stampede outfit Is hereby offered
ns a prlre by Hill The Thompsons
I'hll, publicity agents of the series of
Western contests being held this week
at the Sheepshead Hay Speedway, to the
first person who guesses the Identity of
the ex-Prenldent of the United States
who was present yesterday who ejacu
lated, "Bully, by tleorge!" at the feats
he witnessed, who mingled freely with
the cowboys and cowgirls, who borrowed
a sombrero and rode upon a cowpony,
who swapped yarns with the old time
Westerners whom he met and who said
to the newspaper men present :
"An extraordinary spectacle, by
(leorget Typically American and won
derfully donel These boys are not too
proud to fight!"
The enthusiasm of Col. Roosevelt, for
It was Indeed he, was seldom more ef
fervescent. Yelling with delight, chuck
ling and cheering, his ardent personality
reached out over the track and Infield
and spurred the contestants on to feats
even more thrilling than usual.
At 5 o'clock he telephoned home to
hold his dinner until 8 o'clock or later,
that he was going to stay until the fin
lh. After the contests were over tho
Colonel, popped up on a pony, rod a
nroursl, talked with the boys and didn't
leave for home until nearly 7 :30.
With him were Teddy, Jr., Kermlt and
his wife and Dr. and Mrs. Richard H.
Derby. I'ollce Commissioner Arthur
Woods and Mrs. Woods Joined them
later.
Like a boy at bis first circus was the
Colonel. Uesldo him sat Mrs. I.uella
Irwin Jones, who as I.uella Irwin won at
Cheyenne last year the title of cham
pion lady relay rider of the world. Mrs.
Jones was a contestant at the Cheyenne
show six years ago, when the Colonel
was there.
"Thin Is the greatest show of I In kind
I have ever seen," said the Colonel after,
ward. "It Is the real Western stuff, like
the Cheyenne show, only much bigger
and with more champions and better con
testants, "Why It's better than fifty movie
shows. New York Is wonderfully lucky
to be allowed to see It. Many of these
boys I know, and they arc wonders In
their line. To see such a spectacle will
make a better American of a man."
It was the steer bulldogglng and the
bucking horse contests that chiefly In
terested the Colonel, although when the
hone of Sidney Todd. In the pony ex
press nice. Jumped a "VO foot steel lrc
fence without touching It the Colonel's
amazement was great.
Hofore he left he healed the breach
I between the southwesterners and the
northwca.rrt.eri. which cuifil u batlla

learned yesterday, had not a ivaremilter
stolen the revnlvora nf n lmifler nf .mi.
of the fuctloiw In the feud. The Colonel
Induced Kd I.lndaey and Charlie Irwin
to shake hands and call It null.
The steer bulldogglng contest followed
the rain. The field was like a lake, but
the boys went out to show tho Colonel
they were us good or better than thn
men he knew lnvhls early days In the
West. In spite of the bad condition of
the Held one steer was thrown In 25 '
seconds, the fustest.lt has yet been
done, while anothorivns thrown In Si

The wild horse race yesterday was
the bis feature. The air, cooled by the
