"Blindness of Virtue" The beautiful young daughter of an English vicar Is brought up In Ignorance regarding the facts of facts. She knows nothing about eu genics or a lack of eugenics. The girl and a youth, with whom she falls In love, are drawn back from the proverbial abyss "In time." This Is the theme of the "Blindness of Virtue." by Cosmo Hamilton, well played by a company o6 English actors at the Orpheum. "The Conspiracy" A young woman kills the leader of a band of white slavers and is sought by the police. She Is engaged as stenographer by a shrewd, whim sical writer of detective yarns, who writes a, tale about the crime committed by the girl and brings her to confess to him. However, h saves her, and virtue triumphs. A thrilling detective drama, successful In New York and revived, with excellent acting, nt the American. "An Aerial Honeymoon" The tricks of the stage are Infinite. In the new production by the Brothers: Byrne, of "Eight Bells" fame, an aeroplane voyage lit erally lifts beholders from their seats. There Is a collision between two motor cars and tho demolition of a Swiss Inn by a runawuy ex press train. A rough-and-tumble, fun-making entertainment. Rebecca The delightful Rebeoca, of Mrs. Kate Douglas Wiggins' "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm," quite captivates from the romantlo settings on the stage of the AValnut. Marguerito Henry plays Rebecca with winning charm. A sweet, appeal. Ins story of boyhood and girlhood. SHALL A WIFE DARE WHAT A HUSBAND DOES? Problem of Men's Neglect and Decep tion of Wives Theme of'ThcJtcvolt." A Play That ''Gets Across." A waiting wife a wife waiting late In tho night for tho huiband to roturn who, loving, deludes herself into believing her husband's excuses and untruths, nnd who, caring for tho home and a child, Is stinted by a meagre al lowance, makes over old drosses and bears negligence patiently. A wlfo tortured with sus picions, harrowed with Jealousy, Btlll devoted nnd meek nnd silent. A pathetic figure a too common tlguro In life. Her counterpart Is to be found In tho llttlo frame dwellings of every town, In the drab rookeries of every hive, lllto city apartment house. It has remained for Edward Locke to present this piteous human drama in such n popular way as to express nnd bring home tho injus tice of the double standard of morals In tho marrlngo rclntlon In "The Revolt." which opened nt the Adelphl Inst night. One might say It remained, through tho vehlclo ot Mr. Locke's piny, for Helen Wnie to present tho heart tragedy ot too many wives. "The Revolt" as a play has excellent qual ities. It transplants complications and phases of actual life to the stage. It carries Its alle gory convincingly. It is a play that must seri ously do good. "While it tlnows before Its audience, In the second act, tho meretricious elegance and luxury ot vicious living, as main tained by self-righteous, eolf-Justlfying men. ino J.evolt' Is clean and salutary. It is an American play, dealing with familiar domestic conditions. It is as effective a piny on its theme ns wns the antiseptic, much-exploited drama of Brleux on another. Anna Stephens, the wife, has waited for her husband night after night for sevrn yenrs. There was only a honeymoon year of happiness. John, tho husband, acted by Alphonz Ethler, spends his evenings as many husbands do, and whllo he tells-his wife ho works at tho offlco, mingles In the company of a certain kind of emancipated women. To them he gives his money. A tribute must be paid to Miss Warn ns an actress. Unaffected by the tricks of the stage. Intellectual in her interpretation, her acting has the simplicity of really great talent. Ono Is never conscious of tho actress, you see only the wife. Such a portrayal Is art. Assured ot her hujband's infidelity by her scheming, villainous, whlfiky-addlcted step mother, who urges her to the life which, if it costs men money, brings money to women, Anna confronts John with evidence of his mls dtongs In a letter received from a woman. The long pent-up passion of years bursts forth, and Anna rushes forth to the llfo of freedom en Joyed by tho husband, while her prcclpltato flight after midnight in the morning from tho dingy flat In Brooklyn to the "swell" apart ment of Flora La Rose, formerly Linn Schmidt, her old school chum, on ltlvrslde drive, raises a doubt as to its plausibility, tt is supposedly excused by the claim of dramatic oxlgencles Most women would wait till morning and. If they loved their child ns prodigiously ns Anna did, would take their child with them. In striking contrast to the mean home of the decent wife, the second act flaunts tho allure and horror-of tho luxurious homo of the nban doned woman. Beth FranUyn. ns La ftoso. Is shockingly true to llf. we Just almost hate to make her ncnuulntanco In public. A night, or rather very early morning, revel tnkes place, and Anna Stephens, radiantly clothed In A Parisian gown of rose satin nnd spangled sil ver. Is wooed by nn Intoxicated admirer. Sho drinks champagno, sings, smokes cigarettes, finally bleaks down nnd weeps. Thcio is a struggle, for the Indomitable honesty and purity of Anna's nature recoil from tho abyss. At the crucial hour Anna is rescued by one of the anonymous visitors, and is about to flee when I a telephone message Informs her of the serious i illness ot her child. Over the bod of the child, believed to be dy- I Ing, the husband, confronted with the folly of I HOW THE CASTLES , BEGAN TO DANCE That very delightful couple, Mr. and Mrs Veinon Castle, hud danced the "box trot," the "Aigentlno tango," the old-fashioned polka, as It was never so gracefully danred by your grandmother, and tho "maxlxe" at Keith's yesterday afternoon. In an awed whisper, a woman in ono of the boxes leaned to her vls-n-vfe and asked- "Where did they come from? How did they ever learn to do It?" Tin: dancing of the Castles, who nre ns charming as they arp grncoful, possesses the delight ot nil too-fugitive things. That Is the only criticism one might mako of their ap pearance. It is simply too delightful for Its brevity. "When nnd how did jou begin to dance?" Mr. Caetle was asked, the curiosity of the woman In the box In mind. "I played tho part of tho barber in Lew Fields thow, 'Ilcnrlctta,' In New York," said Vernon Castle in tho dressing room after his "act" was over: "A French manager who liked tho act In which I appeared as the bar ber asked mo to go to Paris and do an ab breviated sketch In French. Mrs. Castlo and I had Just been marriwl. That was about three years ago. Wo went to Paris. Our manager went broke. Wo had Just 130 francs $26. We vvero desperate, t tell you. 'What'll we do?' I said. 'Let's go to the Cafe d' Paris nnd spend the 100 francs,' said Mrs. Castle. We did. We had $6 left, "There were a lot of grand dukes and other funny people In the Cafe d' Parle. There was dancing. We got into tho spirit of the fun. a nd my wife nnd I got up nnd danced. We danced tne 'Grizzly Bear.' We vvero rotten, really. Somehow our dunce pleased some Rus sian prince, an awfully rich fellow, and he sent L'OX) francs over to us as a gift.
