Members of stock companies all along the road took tho lesser parts. On one of my starring trips to Albany I discovered Ada Behau, then a beauti ful girl, in the stock company there. I grew fond of her nnd later when 1 met her ono day in Broadway, down on her luck, I look her with mo to my manager." Facts About Theaters Thoro is not an actress on "tho English-speaking stago today who knows more about the art of makeup than Mmo. Nazimova. Part of this famous actress' training in tho Rus sian conservator' was tho mastery of this subtle accomplishment. Mme. Na zimova, though ono of the youngest drainntic stars now beforo the public, does not hesitate to efface her beauty when the demand of tho role cnlls for such disfigurement. George O. Starisbury, manager of a St. Louis machinery concern, has threatened to sue Maxine Elliott for damages unless sho suppresses the name as it appears in the cast of "The In ferior Sex" opposito tho sailor Mc Phersou. Tho actor admitted that he assumed tho name to cover up his real name and for two seasons has been professionally known as George .T. Stansbury, but has never been in St. Louis. Tribuno Want Ada. fll Main 5200. Independent 3BQ known that hick turned to them and has mover since looked away. A miner who had como into St. Paul to make some business arrangements took them back with Uim into tho hills among the minors hungry for entertainment. Their humor was rewarded by a shower of silver and gold that tinkled around their feet in cheering fashion, and soon sent them into San Francisco able to mako terms with the rival organiza-tion. "The Mcrrj' Widow." a musical com ody which is lasting longer than some of tho old ones will bo produced for n fortnight, beginning Monday at the Academy of Music. Following that Sothorn and Miss Marlowe will pin' a return engagement. At the end of the present season tho Academy of Music will bo turned into a vaudovillo house. That will give the old house a taste of every kind of theatrical production over plaj'cd. Grand opera, musical comedy, drama, faTcial comedies and even pantomime havo bceu produced at this famous playhouse. There is considerable talk of making the clos ing night at tho Academy of Music a gala affair as it lyis been looked upon for many years as tho home of real drama. Mr. Sothorn and Miss Marlowe in a Shakespearean perfonn ancc would bo a fitting close. The Does Anybody Love a Fat Man? "Nobody loves a fat man," ex claims Maclyn Arbuckle sadly as he plays tho character of the sheriff in "The Bound Up," and the roars of laughter seem to give the indication that his sentiments arc those of the maiority of the playgoers. And it is well to bear in mind the advice re cently given by a Chicago doctor. Ho says that in choosing a husband it is well to avoid all thick, gaunt and cadaverous candidates. They do not mako cheerful, contented husbands. They aro like to get peevish if the wheatona is underdone,, and are given to finding grounds for complaint in the coffee. The best husband is tho man whoso principal dimension is circum ference. Chcose one whose waist lias become but a vague memory and who has a nice round face. A regular moon faced man is said to bo tho best of all. The supply of moon-faced men is, of course, comparatively limited. Still, by proceeding without undue haste in the mutter, any enterprising girl ought to be able to pick out a likel' husband. In a somewhat similar vein, but on a different suggestion is an opinion from a western paper on "Tho Popular Fat Man," which is as follows: ""Was there ever a fat man who was not pop ular with the follows 7 Of course, there havo been some, but the' were the ex ceptions. 'Let me havo men about me who aro fat,' says Shakespeare's 'Caesar,' and tho remark consists with that sure judgment of men that con stituted u chief olomonl in Caesar's greatness. For steady reliability and inability to see or act crookedly your average fat man is distinguished. Ilo is tho embodiment of good nature. Even wheu he has tho moral looseness of 1 COLONIAL 1 EIGHT DAYS STARTING TONIGHT, I (Matinees Wednesday and Saturday).

Mrs. Minnie Maddern Fiske will next appear in Ibsen's "Pillars of So ciety." Preliminary engagements for this company show that tho Bamo high standard which has always character ized the organization will be main tained. Tho important part of Consul Bornick, a product of Ibsen's creative genius that has caused unlimited spec ulation will bo intrusted to that splen did aclor, Holbrook Blinn, Tho prom ise which he gavo after his perform ances in "The First Born," "Tho Cat and the Cherub," and as Napoleon in "Mme. Sans-Gene," made, the lovers of tho American stage realize that after all tho old school of acting, however great, could scarcely bo equaled by that of the new. But when his crea tion of Jim Piatt, tho regenerated jail bird of "Salvation Nell," was re-' vealcd tho critics maintained that no man had given bottcr acting to tho public. Another man who will add great strength to the cast will bo Shol don Lewis. He is a product of Augus tin Daly's company and supported Ada Rehan as Oliver in "As You Like It" and Joseph Surfaco in "The School for Scandal." He was the leading man of the players at Potter Palmor's subsi dized Now Theater in Chicago, and while thero created the part of "Marse Covington" in George Ade's ono act plav of that title. He was the Italian father in "An Englishman's Home," nnd mado a strong personal success as Hart, the moncv lender in tho recent production of "Idols." Taatc of Real Dramatics. New York is getting a tasto of real dramatics although ono is sorry to Bay that, tho patronage cannot compare with that of "Madame X," "Where There's A Will" and other salacious productions. Tonight Sothcrn and Miss Marlowe ended their fortnight's engagement in Shakespearean revivals at the Acadacmy of Music. Tho two vehicles by which they chose to carry their talent -were "The Merchant of Venice" and "Romeo nnd Juliet." The Bon Greet players aro now in tho sec ond week of their ten weeks' engage ment at the Garden theater. Tho bill at the. regular performances is "She Stoops to Conquer" with spocial mati nees of a Fifteenth Century morality play called "Everyman;" "Tho Pal ace of Truth," "Dr. Faustus," "Wonder-Book Plays," and Bulwer-Lytton 's I "Money." Mr. Greet plays the part of "Tony Lumpkin" in "She Stoops to Conquer" and as a roistering coun try squire he is superbly funny. Impersonates Dickens Oharactors. Bansby Williams, tho English actor, who made a unique reputation in his impersonation of characters from Charles Dickens' novels, is at tho American Music Hall and his fame, I should say, is well founded. Speaking of his experiences, Mr. Williams saiu to me: "My life has boon full of coincidences. So "far as I know I am the only impersonator of Dickens' characters. I was born in tho same year that Dickons died 1S70, and it may be fanciful, but I think I was influenced by the nuivorsal mourning. Quito naturally Dickens is my favorite author and I have lived over and over the scenes in 'David Copporfield' and looked into all those queer places in London that tho author was so foud of visiting. ' ' "Children of Destiny." "Children of Destiny" is settled down for a long run apparently. From tho very first night it drew well and, aside from tho dramatic points of the story, it has a fino supporting cast. Tho story tells of a girl who finds a blot upon her parentage during hor engagement. Sho becomes a woman of tho street after tho man to whom sho was eugagod had cast her off. She goes to Monte Carlo and falls in love with a youthful chap who is drown- a Falslaff, he is a lovable rascal; some times he is sluggish of intellect, but ho is usually firm of character and with a heart as big as his body. Romombor the boy they used to call 'Fatty' at school, and you'll bring to mind a boy that everybody liked. Look at tho fat men around and vou'll usually find a sturdy influence for good in the com munity. You arc sure to find the sunny temper, tho ever-present smile, the constant joviality that soem almost necessary to accompany tho accumula tion of avoirdupois." Now, after all, ing sorrows of his own. Neither knows the other has a. past. They relate their 6torieB and continue to fove and aro finally marriod, In tho cast, aro Dorothy Dorr, formerly of "Mrs. Dakon"; Ida Darling, Virginia Pearson, Laura Nel son nail, Frederick Truesdoll, Orrin Johnson, Harry Davenport, George H. Wright, Frank, Richer and Helen Hel ton. It Pays to Advertise. As an cxnmplo of how the American docs anybody lovo a fat man? If not, why not? An Unnecessary Expense.

Following a great "scoop" in a New Beauties of the Stage MISS ELSA RYAN magazine xcaches out beyond tho seas, Miss Margaret Anglin was Tccenyy the recipient of a "picture of herself as Holona Richie, which had evidently boon torn from tho leaves of a magazine, with a polite letter that it bo auto graphed and returned to an address in Pekin. China. Tho address was writton in fair English and signed Luig Chin Wing. Tho writer explained that he had studied at Harvard. Gerson's Midgets Arrive. Fifty little people, famous in Europe and known as Gerson's Midgets, havo arrived and will be added to tho circus bill at tho hippodrome on the 1-itb iust.

Miss Brown talks upon the present era of tho drama and gives her views on the uplift of tho stago. I presume shortly to seo an interview with tho infant daughter of tho Szchonyis upon tho sociological condi tions in Europe as soon as she is old enough to talk. Nazimova's Now Repertoire. Mme. Nazimova, who has been hav ing a highly successful season on tour, has begun rehoarsals for a new repertoire of plays, in which sho will bo seen when sho comes to Now York for hor annual metropolitan engage- ment some timo in March. This repcr- IH toire will consist entirely of plays in which Mme. Nazimova has not boon seen herctoforo in New York, including IH thrco Ibsen dramas. "Little Eyolf.r' ''Lady Ingre of Ostrat." and "Tho IH Wild Duck;'' "Tho Fairy Tale." by Sniztler; "An Ideal Wife." by Marco Prago. and "Tho Sea Gull," by Anton Tchekhoff. tH ' ' Sister 3oatrice.' ' Tho members of the New Theater company are deep in the rohearsak of IH "Sister Beatrice," tho Maurice Mae- fM terlinck play which is to receive its IH premier on tho night of March 14. This is the drama -with music in which Edith Wynne Matlhison will make her debut as a member of the organization In IH connection with "Sister Beatrice," tho, fourth act of Ibsen's "Brandt" will bo prosentcd. This scene epitomizes the entire play, and is frequently givon as a foropieco to dramatic productions.fi It has, however, never been preaentoi on this side of tho Atlantic. A great- IH deal of interest attaches to it. ... tH Honors Her Relative. Maxine Elliott gavo a Bpociai matinee of "Tho Inferior' Sex-" at Daly '3 thea ter in order that her brother-in-law, Forbes-Robertson, may see her. performance. Forbes-Robortson, by tho' way, will play the five hundredth per formance of ''The Passing of tho Third Floor Back'' on March 7. Hear Baying Real Hounds. The public generally have remarked1 jH on tho realism of the first act of "The',! Niggorj" in which bloodhounds are' heard in pursuit of a fleeing negro..' As a matter of fact tho audience real ly hears tho baying of Knoxcraft and Bolle, two of tho most famous blood-, hounds in tho world. They are owned' by Dr. Knox of Danbury, Conn., and;' are both prize winners from the Im-j perial Bloodhound Kennels. Wheu the New Theater wished to reproduce on? the stago the sound of hounds bark-v ing on the trail, thoy sent expert phono-f graph men to Danbur where Knox-! craft and Bolle were induced to cry on the tmil of a fox. Nothing more realistic could be imagined. In the Spot Light. ' Raymond Hitchcock, a Cohan star, who is appearing in "Tho Man Who' Owns Broadway," has leased the Chi- ncsc theater in Dovers street in tho I H heart of Chinatown, and will produce Chinese dramas, although the name of the playhouse has been changed toi "Tho Hitchcock Theater." The play running now is "Si Foon Kick" Chung." Mr. Hitchcock has not beonl H able to have tho title interpreted yefcj so ho doesn't know whether ho is fa- H thering a musical comedy or a melo- drama. H Dazie, the famous daucer, will como , H east next week after her New Orleans engagement, where she finished up to night at the Orphoum in her farco "L 'Amour de 1 'Artist." The panto- mime was well liked in the middle west H and the Southern manager offered . H quite an inducement to get the dancer' jH to ,iump from Cincinnati to New Or leans for a single week's pla3ing. On Monday Otis Skinner will bring to an end his engagement in "Your H Humblo Servant" at the Garrick the'n-t H ter and will outer upon a tour which will take him to the Pacific coast. H On Wednesday, March 9, Hattie Will-. iams will follow Mr. Skinner at tho Garrick in her new farco "The Girl Ho Couldn't Leave Behind Him," adapted from tho German by Sydue3'. H Miss Grace George is rehearsing in, lH a now play by Thompson Buchanan,) tiM called "Making People Happy." It; H was Mr. Buchanan who wrote "A VM Woman's Wn3'" for this star. The. ! Grace Georgo company, by the waj VM is worth referring to. It is composed- IH exclusively of married! couples and the business manager's name is Love.
