Problem of Men's Neglect and Decep
tion of Wives Theme of "The Revolt."
A Play That "Gets Across."
A waiting wife a wlfo waiting late In tho
night for tho husband to return who, loving,
deludes herself Into believing her husband's
cxruses nnd untruths, nnd caring for tho
home and a child. Is stinted by a mengre al
lowance, makes over old dresses nnd benra
negllgenco patiently. A wlfo tortured with sus
picions, harrowed with Jealousy, still devoted
and meek and silent. A pathetic figure a too
common llguro In life. Her counterpart Is to
bo found In tho llttlo frame dwellings of every
town, in the drnb rookeries of every hlvo-liko
city apartment house.
It has remained for E.dward Locke to present
this piteous human drama In such a popular
way ns to express and bring homo the injus
tice of tho doublo standard of morals in tho
marrlago relation In "The Itovolt," which
opened at the Adelphl last night. Ono might
say it remained, through tho chicle of Jlr.
Loekc5s play, for Helen Ware Intimately to pro
sent tho heait tragedy of too many wives.
"The Revolt" as a play has excellent qual
ities. It transplants complications nnd phases
of nctual life to the stage. It carries Its alle
gory convincingly. It is a piny that must seri
ously do good. While it throws before Its
audience, in the second net, the meretricious
elegance and luxury of vicious living, ns main
tained by self-righteous. self-Justifying men,
"The Revolt" is clean and salutary. It is an
American play, dealing with familiar domestic
conditions. It is as effective a play on Its
theme as was tho nntlsoptlc, much-exploited
drama of Brleux on another.
Anna Stephens, the wife, has waited for her
husband night after night for seven years.
There was only a honeymoon year of happiness.
John, the husband, acted by Alphonz Ethler,
spends his evenings as many husbands do, nnd
whllo he tells his wife ho works at tho offlco,
mingles In the company of a certain kind of
emancipated women. To them ho gives his
money. A tribute must be paid to Jliss Ware
ns nn actress. Unaffected by tho tricks of tho
stage, intellectual in her interpretation, her
acting has the simplicity of really great talent.
One Is never conscious of. the actress, you see
only the wife. Such a portrayal Is art.
Assured of her husband's infidelity by her
scheming, IUaInous, whisky-addicted step
mother, who urges her to the life which. If it
""" '" money, unngs money to women,
Anna confronts John with evidence of his mis
doings in a letter received from a woman. The
long pent-up passion of years bursts forth, and
Anna rushes forth to the life of freedom en
Joyed by the husband. While her precipitate
flight after midnight In the morning from tho
dingy Hat In Brooklyn to the "swell" apart
ment of Flora La Rose, formerly Llna Schmidt,
her old school chum, on Riverside drlvo, raises
a doubt as to Its plausibility. It Is supposedly
excused by the claim of dramatic exigencies.
Most women would wait till morning and. If
they loved their child as prodigiously as Anna
asseited. would tako their child with them.
In striking contrast to the mean homo of tho I
decent wife, tha second act flaunts the alluio
nnd horror-of tho luxurious homo of tho aban
doned woman. Beth Frnnklyn. as La Rose, Is
hoeklngly true to life-we Just almost hato to
make- her acquaintance In public. A night, or
rather very early morning, revel takes placo,
and Anna Stephens, radiantly clothed In a
Parisian gown of rose satin mid spangled sli
ver. Is wooed by an intoxicated admirer. Sho
drinks champagne, sings, smokes cigarettes,
dually breaks down nnd weeps. There Is a
struggle, for tho Indomltnhle honesty and purity
of Anna's nature recoil from the nbjss. ,t
the crucial hour Anna is rescued by one of tho
anonymous visitors, and Is about to flee when
a telephone message Informs her of the serious
illness of her child.
Over tho bed of tho ihild. believed to be dy
ing, the husband, confronted with the folly of

HOW THE CASTLES
BEGAN TO DANCE
That very delightful couple, Jlr. nnd Jlrs,
Vernon Castle, had danced tho "box trot," tho
"Argentine tango," the old-fashioned polka, as
It was never so gracefully danced by your
grandmother, nnd tho "maxlxe" at Keith's
yesterday afternoon. In nn awed whisper, a
woman In ono of the boxes leaned to hor
vis-a-vis nnd asked: "Whero did thoy coma
from? How did they over learn to do It?"
The dancing of tho Castles, who aro as
charming ns thoy nro grnceful, possesses ths
delight of all too-fugltlvo things. That is the
only ciltlcl.sm one might make of their np
pearancc. It is hlmply too delightful for its
brevity.
"When nnd how did you begin to dance?"
Jlr. Castle was asked, the curiosity of thft
woman In tho box In mind.
"I played tho part of tho barber In Low
Fields' show, 'Henrietta,' in Now York," said
Vornon Castlo In the diesslng room after his
"net" was ocr. "A French manager who
liked tho net In which I appealed as the bar
ber nsked mo to go to Pails and do an ab
biovlated sketch in French. Jlrs. Castlo and
I had Just been married. That wus about three
years ago. We went to Paris. Our manager
went broke. Wo had Just 130 francs $26. Wo
woro desporate, I tell you. 'What'H wo do?'
I said. 'Let's go to the Cafo do Paris and
fcpend the 100 francs," said Jlrs. Castle. Wo
did. Wo had 55 left.
"There were 11 lot of grand dukes and other
funny people In the Cafe de Paris. Thero was
dancing. Wo got into the spirit of tho fun,
nnd rny wlfo nnd I got up and danced. Wo
danced tno 'Grizzly Bear.' We were rotten,
really. Somehow our dance pleased some Rus
sian prince, an awfully rich fellow, and ho sent
2000 francs over to us as a gift. I wanted to re
turn the flOO, but my wife wouldn't let mc. Sho
slipped the money into my pocket, Tho man
ager then enme over and said he'd reserve tho
table for us every night, give us our meals
and wanted im to dance. I told him I couldn't
do that; then he engaged us professionally.
That's how we began. Jly wife had never
been on the stage.
"A year after that wc came to New York
and danced at Louis JIartln's; everybody
knows the rest of the story. I've always
danced. I danced with Lotta Faust In tha
'Jlcrry Widow.' But I've Improved a lot
since the impromptu dance at the Cafo do Paris.
Jlr. and JIis. Castlo aro tho greatest feat
ures vaudeville has had for a long time. Their
dancing, Indeed, too delightfully brief, swept
the house. Seconding tho Castles, Ruth Roya
certainly "got" the nudienco with her rag
time songs. Compared to Blossom Scely, an
"attraction" last week, Jliss Royo is a real
"orlnccMi of ragtime." and almost as original
and Irresistible ns was Eva Tanguay In tha
early days of the "I don't care" craze.
