of great nctrcsses, of course, being dead. Tho

bllo arrests whllo she, herself, revives a play
written by ono of tho most brilliant men of
tho century man to whom, lying In a. grave
In Montmartrc, haa come a full and deserved
recognition for surpassing wit and genius.
"Lady Windermere's Fan," In which Miss
Anglln nppcared last night nt tho Broad Street
Theatre, Is a play of admirable technique, nn
evening's dramatic menu In which every courso
Is served with tartar sauce. There has never
been a moro seductive, a moro subtle, u moro
delightfully worldly Mrs. Erlynno than tho ono
presented by Miss Anglln. Miss Anglln makes
that brilliant woman, of a dubious character,
really winning. On the stago this type usually
Isn't. In Wilde's play this woman, tragical In
her life, becomes a mother desirous of protect
ing her child. Mrs. Erlynno la perhaps the
most appealing character In tho WUdo plays.
As such. Miss Anglln played tho part with nn
Intellectual understanding, an artistic restraint
which Wlldo himself would havo ndmlrcd.
If "Lady Windermere's Fan" Is already an
anachronism so far as upper Fifth avenuo or
Rlttenhouse Squaro aro concerned, Its satire
on social and homo frailty Is quite as apropos
as when Wilde wrote It. Ab a play It Is far
,superIor to the Eugene Walter and 'Gus Thomas
productions ns they attempt to deal, seriously
or otherwise, with social and other problems.
Miss Anglin's cast Is admirable. Ruth Holt
Bouclcault is a scintlllnnt Duchess of Berwick.
Florence Carpenter, as Lady Windermere, was
Insinuatingly captivating. While Sidney Green
street played Lord Lorton Incomparably, there
havo been much better Lord Wlndermeres than
that enacted by Leonard Wllley, tho heralded
Australian star. Mr. Wllley was a bit too In
tense too intense, jou know. Altogether, .Miss
Anglin's revival Is notable. It is perhaps one
of the best, If not the best, presentation of
Oscar Wildo's delectable play.
boring one. It Is a high-water mark of
banality and bathos, and a. type of tho sort
of thing which mnkes one wonder at tho tem
porary mental comas of vaudeville managers.
On the other hand, tho rest of tho Keith bill
can only arouse admiration for tho Intelligent

restrained passionate pathos, than It Is by
Perelrn. Edwin George listed as an "almosi
Jugglor" Juggles as entertainingly with light
talk ns with tin plates and rubber balls. He
Is genuinely diverting.
"Nearly Married" at the Garrick
Governor Tener, of the sovereign State of
Pennsylvania, aided and abetted an elopement
last night. This In Itself was reprehensible
enough, but his full Iniquity wll bo understood
when It Is announced that tho elopement was
between a man and his own wife. Just what
excuse tho president of the National League will
mako rcmalna to bo seen. But nsldo from this
ofilclal faux pa, "Nearly Married," which came
back to tho Garrick last night with a cast new,
with the exception of the star, Bruce McRae,
proved a pleasant entertainment.
Tho main criticism of tho play, which has
been reviewed before, Is Its exceeding sllmness.
If brevity be the bou! of wit, then "Nearly Mar
ried" Is tho wittiest piny of tho ages, for It
lasted Just one hour and 27 minutes. It began
at half-past 8 and finished at half-past 10, with
two lC-mlnute intermissions.
Bruco McRae, who Is a living duplicate in
looks and manners nnd speech of Archie Gunn,
tho artist, was a bit heavy In the role of the
bedeviled husband. Hattle King, tho profes
sional corespondent, was fairly true to life,
though a bit hard. Gertrude Robinson and John
McCabe, as the other wedded couple, did well,
aa did Dick GIffcn as tho obnoxious brother.
Smaller parts were played, and played well, by
Delmar E. Clark as tho East Indian, Beatrice
Ingram ns his Irish wife, John Sparks as the
Justice of peace, and Danny Day as tho chauf
feur. Antoinette Walker was Betty Lindsay, tho
foolish heroine.
Taken all In all, "Neatly Married" is a merry
comedy, broad nt limes, but entertaining never
theless, but too brief withal, save for tho in
excusably long Intermissions.

A Striking Miracle Play
"Pilate's Daughter," the miracle play by
Francis L. Kenzel, a Roman Catholic priest,
was produced last night atthe Chestnut Street
Opera House. Ono of the unique features of
the production Is that there are no male char
acters In It.
Apart fiom the spectacular aspects of the
play, it has a strong religious appeal the ap
peal of such plays as "Ben Hur" and "The Sign
of thu Cross." "Pilate's Daughter" Is founded
on tho old legend 1 elating to the daughter of
PontlU3 Pilate. According to this, Claudia, the
daughter of the proconsul, threw a rose from
her balcony as Christ was being led to Calvary.
The flowrr touched his garment, and although
It was trod upon by hundreds when tho girl
rorovered It, the rose still bloomed.
Ten jears later tho perpetually blooming rose
was used to work miracles. A spring is mado
to giit-h out of the stono prison wall whero the
Christian women aro held; a dead child Is
brought to life: leason is restored to an unfor
tunate woman stricken mad at the time of the
Violet ile Bicarrl takes tho part of Claudia,
Pllat-Vs daughter, in the first act. and the rolo
of later jp.ira, when the girl has grown to
woniamioou, is assumed by Constance Moli
nc.uix, who displayed consummate skill. Miss
Mollneaux's work at all times bore tho stamp
of sincerity, especially in her eloquently de
livered prayers. ,
Marion Barney, an old friend of Philadelphia
Playgoers, was welcomed back In dual roles,
first (.s Claudia Proclea, the wife of Pontius
Pilate. later as Agrlpplna, the wlfo of Caesar
Although neither part was of a nature to bring
out her accomplishments to the best, she acqult
tcr herself admirably. Margaret Vryling, as tho
Roman sorceress, made the most of tho situa
tions that fell to her. In fact, all the members
of tho exceptionally largo cast were excellent.
Considerable attention has been given to the
scenery nnd properties. Some of the spectacu
lar effects achieved are remarkable. A curious
ami striking lapse is made, however. In the
handling of tho Crucifixion In the second scene
of net 1. when tho Christ is shown without the
thtoe.s that, according to Biblical hlstorj, wcro
crucified on either side of the Saviour.
Valeska Surratt at Keith's
Valcska Surratt, who replaced Mr. and Mrs,
Vurnon Castla at Keith's yesterday. Is notable
for her gowns principally. Miss Surratt's
gowns aro wonderful. They ar worth buying
a seat tu see. They are the sort you cannot
ordinarily behold In shop windows. There's a
personality about them. The personality may
be bUarro-but then thero are things one wants
to see at least once in a lifetime.
Miss Surratt, It must be said. Is an extraor
dinary dancer. She possesses a senso of rhythm
which places her almost in tho class of must,
clans. There la something musical, even tn
her most vigorous cavortlngs. Sho is ,ie.
cldedly Interesting. Ono would not call her an
actress, and her voice is ono of tho mot un
appealing ever heard on the stage. But her
peisonallty Is distinct, anything but nebulous,
ami her scenic settings aro always striking!
Mss Surratt appears In "Black Crepe and
Diamonds." a modernized symbolic act rem.
nlscent of "Everywoman " The Castles were

the Illness of Mrs. Castle. The Castles are,
perhars, tho most famed, as well as most
lupular dancers In America. If the truth be
told, young Jack Mann, who turkey-trots in
MUs Surratt's act. Is as notable a daucer In
hU way as Vernon Castle He is not quite so
dignified, to be sun. but he is more agile,
even more graceful. Hla debut-lf It be a debut

Irgs and making them Into a musical comedy Is
interesting. In tho case of the musical farce
comedy which opened last night at tho Walnut
tho feat has been accomplished successfully.
The comedy Is indeed as laughable as the popu
Hr pictures.
"Father," very tough. Initiated Into society by
"mother"; a bogus count trying to get "father"
to invest in n radium mine, and Tom Hamilton,
"father's" business partner, are nmong the in
imitably funny characters that go to mako the
play ono prolonged slde-spllttlng evening's
While there Is little plot to the comedy, it is
replete with Jokes nnd good songs. Of those
a number made decided hits "Dear Old Girl,"
"Just a Littlo Smile." "Love, Love. Love," "A
Bandit Raffles." and last, but not lea&t, "The
Irish Suffragette."
John E. Cain as Jiggs Mahoney (father), and
Miss Lydn Kane as Mrs. Jiggs (mother), were
adequately and grotesquely humorous, and
equally good were Robert G. Rice as the butler,
Graco M. Hanson and Blanche Nowcombo as
the daughters, Tom Meade. Harry A. Truax.

The Empire
"Jah, I vos a German, hut I thank Illm
mel I'm not there," said Hurry Bentley,
who, as Rudolph Sauer, furnished most of the
comedy In tho rollicking burlesque, "Tho Love
Club," which opened a week's engagement at
the Empire yesterday. As presented by tho
Rosey Posey Gills tho piece was an unquali
fied success.
In addition to tho comedy, good singing and
splendid dancing were also provided.

faints at the sllghtpst provocation, but the
woman who prefers tho soft drift of a frill to
the aeroplane a.scenslon effects of fashion that
are so much In ovidenco today. Tho woman
who emanatps tho dainty fragrance of orris In

her; sho eschews all tight clothing nnd Is able
so to .stamp a room with her personality that
one can feci her presence without a real, tan

"Ah, yes, tho woman who Is womanly
nwakons wonder in tho hart of man because
sho Is f"o truly feminine, so absolutely spiritual.
Spirituality Is not given to man to possess, and
man longs for that which he cannot under
stand. Therefore, man not only needs, but
wants, tho spiritual woman, and none but the
truly feminine."
Mrs. Fiske in Comedy
Despite Mrs. Flsko's association with serious
drama, hf-r abilities as a comedienno aro of
superlative sprlghtllnnss and brilliance. Her

the Adventures of a Lively Hussy" Is an
nounced as a comedy In which Mrs. Fiske
finds ample opportunity for tlm display of this
particular phase of her genius. Lady Betty,
living In London In the year 1750, embodies tho
gay. frivolous, sport-loving, gaming life of
tho period. Hounded by creditors nnd pur
sued by a rich but elderly and repug

ot hor difficulties by marrying a political pris
oner in Newgate who Is condemned to death.
"People talk of beauty of mind, and develop
the intellect by hard study, but when the
spirit is spoken of they smile and 8)eak of
religious attitudes." declared Edith Campbell
Walker, who plays tho part of the professional
corespondent In ".Warty Mnrriud." "Now. to
be beautiful a woman must develop tho spirit

mean n highly developed mentality, the free
dom of mind given by tho civilized forms of
education, but tho developed soul of an individ

from the eyes and expresses kindliness and
beautiful thinking in every thought, word and
"This spirituality can bo applied to the most
trivial things of l.fo. Simplicity Is its keynote,
