LOVE BEARS GIFS I TO MAGGIE CUNE FHends Gather With Desire to Cheer Up Stricken “Irish Queen.” r ' ■ 6ge< i*l Dispatch to The Star. RED BANK, N. J., January 24. Many friends of Maggie Cline, the old-time music hall favorite, today made the pilgrimage from New York ctty to this little town, the homo of the "Irish queen." They are friends from both sides of the footlights, lured to Red Bank by Hews of the serious lllnCfcs of their termer idol. Inspired with the hope of being able to drop a word of en couragement to the warm-hearted olnger who made “Throw Him Down, McClusky’’ a tune whistled from coast to coast three decades ago. They arrived bearing gifts, flowers enough for a prima donna, or for one of “our Maggie’s” former opening nights, fruit enough to stock a fruit store, gifts enough to give any gift Shop a rousing start. They did the thing after the ap proved manner of Maggie herself, and were disappointed and filled with foreboding because entrance to the sick room was denied. It had not seemed possible to them, back in New York, that the “Irish Queen.” she of the resplendent emerald gown and glorious laugh, could have been brought so low. Greeted by Anxious Faces. Vntil they saw the anxious faces, heard the hushed voices of the mem bers of the household, theee pilgrims •were half convinced the desperate Ill ness was only a wild rumor which Maggie’s beaming face and splendid ■wit would dispel. ' “They haven’t Maggie s art now adays ” said a white-haired man, pausing on the steps of Maggie s home to wipe his eyes. nor her heart, either as ready with her purse as she was with her. to "f ue ’ They don’t make comedians like Mag ale Cline any more." In away, he was right. The great of Maggie Cline lay not'so much in her voice, though that was good enough; nor ln looks, which were more than good enough—but in her Instinctive knowledge of the psychology of an audience. It lay, in short, in the warm personal bond between the au dience and herself. Each patron felt that Maggie was singing more for him than for the rest. There was something so personal in her »P a rkle. In her comic glance. In the roguish gesture emphasizing a phrase that you felt friends with her at once. There was nothing “up-stage about Maggie Cline. Adda “Personal Touch.” Another feature which served to add the personal touch to the rela tions between Maggie and her au dience was the good old-fashioued gallery she cultivated. “Hullo, Maggie’.” the gallery would roar as one man when its buxom star flashed out from the wings. “Hullo, boys!” Maggie would re- BP “Hey, where d’ya get the hat?” a dirtv- faced youngster wou.d yell. ••Take It off. take it off. . . “Say, that hat coat me * 4 °— Is the matter with it. Maggie would counter to the roars of the it’s fierce; take it off.” the youngster would com© back, ana on It would come. ..... —. „ In the days when Lillian Russell was famous Marie Dressier and May Irwin equally so. Maggie Cline was at ber Uevday, It was a long and bril liant career. For over thirty years Maggie was a favorite. Her glory was at its topmost height in the years when she appeared at Tony Pastor s, next to Tammany Hall, on 14th street, or at Miner’s Old Bowery, recently damaged by fire, on vaudeville bills ■with Harrigran and Hart, eber and Welds, AVard and Yokes or Sam Ber nard. * “Aa Irish as Paddy's Pig." Though bom in Portland, Me.. Mag gie always characterized herself as ad “Irish as Paddy’s pig.” Girlhood davs spent in Haverhill, Mass., were responsible for the taming of her most famous song. John W. Kelly, who wrote it and came round to Maggie to sell it for $2 to treat the boys, had called his hero McGinty. But Maggie remembered one Mc- Clusky of Haverhill, “an ould tarrier that It took four cops to hould whin he be on a spree.” so she held out for McClusky, and McClusky the hero be came. Eor the phenomenal popularity of the song Maggie had no explanation other than that “every one loves a fl»ht.” The song threw' the entire nation into spasms of mirth, and it Is on Maggie's word we have it that there was only one Irishman who didn’t like the ditty. That was Mag gie’s father. He didn’t think it lady like. ■r s Other Songs Made Famous. /"Mary Ann Kelrne” was another sung that Maggie Cline made famous. Ko was “Will Tor Be Aisy”; “Come Down, Mrs. Flynn”: “Still His Whiskers Grew”; “The Mick That 'Hirew the Brick," and “Nothin’s Too Good for the Irish." Theatergoers of a former generation still talk of her nidging "The Mick” in Tony Pastor’s during the Christmas season, wearing Sf blue gown, w ith a bouquet of holly apd mistletoe. This town of Red Bank, where she !■ a pioneer resident, adores her. The v place is full of her legends based on her Irresistible laugh and her quiet but unremitting charity. All residents are hoping against hope and praying for her recovery. (Copyright, 1923) 4 1 - BEQUESTS TO CHURCHES.
