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.

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

"Pillars of Society."
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

The public generally have remarked1 jH
on tho realism of the first act of "The',!

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

New Theater wished to reproduce on?
the stago the sound of hounds bark-v

the playhouse has been changed toi
