Academy.
"The Divorce Question** was threshed
out at length at the Academy last evening.
Arguments pro and con were expressed
and examples brought forward
to emphasize them. The play does not
attempt to say that divorce under certain
conditions might not be justifiable,
but that divorce in general is harmful.
After presenting arguments on both
sides of the question for nearly the entire
first act the play gives considerable
opportunity for emotional acting.
A mother and father have been divorced .
and then remarried. Their two children,
whom they have given into the charge I i
of relatives, are brought before them,
Through negligence the children got away ||
from their foster parents and In a fight j
against the world were badly beaten.

Knf irvA lafa II
pi ivo^f mui. www ?c*vv w uw uiifvii gwu. i
The parents then see the mistake they
have made, but they, too, are too late.
The play is one of strong emotions, but
the effort to impress the arguments is
sometimes so earnest as to seem rather
ill advised.
Louis Hollinger, as Rev. William Jerome,
the priest, enacts the role with
vigor and sincerity. Charles C. Bumhara,
as Patrick Skelly, presents an excellent
piece of character acting. Jeanette Lucas,
as Mamie, one of the lost children,
is also very good. Douglas Lawrence, as
Dopie Doe. the other missing child, gives }
an Interesting though exaggerated impersonation.
Thomas L. Voile, as the father,
and Beth Hamilton, as the mother,
meet the requirements of their roles.
Poll's.
Paste, a librettist and a woman hater;
Corksey, a stockbroker; Spider, an
artist, and Rattlf. a dentist, who have
reveled for some time in the idea that
it is better to live alone and enjoy them- '
selves as bachelors than to marry, form
the combination around which Helen Kraft
and Frank Mandel built the play, "Our
Wives." presented by the stock company
at Poll's Theater last night.
Oorksey. however, meets his Emily,
Spider his Margaret and Rattle his
Elizabeth just about the time that
Paste is beginning to succumb to the
charm of a melody composed by a Miss
Wilson in the flat overhead. The three
chums soon admit their defection to
Paste, who blesses them all, "my children,"
and after their marriage invites
them to a "reunion banquet" at his bachelor
quarters, but resolves to go on with
his arrangement with Wilson, he to
write the libretto and she the music for
an opera, both bearing in mind all the
while that thej- are not man and woman,
but sexless machines engaged in a big
work.
At the "reunion banquet" Emily confides
to Elisabeth that Margaret's hair iB
a product of art and nature, and Elisabeth
confidentially tells Margaret, upon
promise she will never tell?and then the
trouble begins, as well as the fun.
Just about the time the three newly
wed bachelors throw off the feminine L
yoke and "get full" to assert their independence
and put in a night of It at
Paste's rooms. Paste has awakened to
the fact that Wilson is a woman, after
all, and that he loves her. He de- nuij1
nounces his former companions, and sends at 1
them home to their young wives, while
he proceeds to complete a life compact
with Wilson, who, for the first time, he
learns is also an Emily.
The play is full of amusing situations actn
and some opportunities for hearty laugh- fer
ter, and the Poll Players acquitted them- capi
selves with credit in it. The play was . ,
creditably mounted, and the audience
seemed to enjoy it thoroughly. cour

The attraction at tho Gayety tliis eraPl
week, which has for its headliners the comi
Watson sisters, Fanny and Kitty, is the <
one of the most extravagant produc- b^etions
seen on the burlesque stage in 1
this city for many days. The show is an<*
billed as "Morocco Bound, an edition 1
de luxe in two volumes." The staging As
of a harem scene in the second ' vol- degri
ume" is quite elaborate. With the ex- pass
ception of the Watsons the principals tion
in the cast are not exceptional enter- turni
tainera. The show depends on scenic Vane
display to compensate tor any lack or sunt
the humor customarily introduced in clare
a burlesque show. Att
The main attractions, of course, are ward
the Watson sisters. Fanny, the larger
one, is Jolly as ever. Kitty, the smaller,
is more entertaining than ever before. *
They were greeted with loud applause
when they made their first appearance
on the stage last night, and later in the' "wu,
evening were compelled to make curte1*'
speeches.
