The care* r ot Madeleine Lucette Fiyley
is an object lesson for women who would
venture for success in the field of dra

new woman is not lacking in the quality

Here is a atory about Clay Clement, who
used to be leading man in Cordray's stock
company in this city: His lather is a
rich stock raiser of Wisconsin. His IVr
cherons and Clydesdales are known wher
ever a horse market holds forth and hi®
acres absorb a Onerous p irtion of the
Badger state. His name is Geiger, and he
is a quiet, plain farmer of kindly manner
and absolute Innocence of the world, the
flesh, and theatrical rates. Clay went
upon the stage a: a safe distance from his
progenitor's estates and wrote a glowing
tribute to himself addressed to his iather
explaining to that unsuspicious judge of
fqulnts that his son had gone where glory
accompanied by the lordly stipend of JA %
week awaited him. The oid man wis in
furiated. Ho disinherited Clay and for
bade his homecoming and wrote a brief
but vitriolic page of wrath, winding up
with the cheerful reflection: "Acting is
no profession; it is vagabondage. These
never was but one man in this county who
ri d such a thing u» you have done. Jim
N'lckerson joined a circus and came home
dead with his blamed neck broke."
Recently a reconciliation was accom
{•iifh«Hl, and in Joliet a fortnight ago there
was the Percherati raiser sl.tmg in the
front row of the opera house upon
his soi: ftxe.i out ir. soldier clothe.- and
s .owing considerable li.ttlllgent applause
upon the aetir.i? «>f the company i" "i

Third tveaar Theater.
The strong attractions of the Broadway
company at the Third Avenue theater
Will not be any less this ween than they
wi-re last week. They will be the drama
"l>ojst Paradise." by Belasco & De Miile,
which wiil be given on Sunday, Monday,
Tuesday and Wednesday, and Bronson
Howard's famous play, "The Banker's
Daughter," which wili be rendered on
Thursday. Friday and Saturday matinee.
Both these plays wiil be produced under
the personal s.ujx rvision of Mr. T. Daniel
Frawiey, who. has rehearsing them
during the past week.
"I.ost Paradise" depicts all the fierce
passions aroused by the labor question,
without leaning to either side in that un
ending controversy, ana has an absorb
ing love story mingled with the plot. The
scenery has been prepared with great at
tention to dt*;ail, one scene representing
a factory in full operation.
"The Banker's Daughter" is admitted
to be one of the great plays ot the latter
end of the century, and Is the chief
source of its author's large fortune. The
characters are drawn from the highest
society of New York and Paris, where the
scene is laid, and the costumes and sct-n
--ery, which are specially designed, are ac
cording to the highest type. The leading
character. John Streblow. will be in the
able hands of Mr. HallocK. Mi«s Truax
will, of course, play Lillian, the heroine,
a part which gives her a wide scope for
the display of her artistic talents. Spe
cial scetury is being prepared for the pro
('apt. Holtum's vaudeville company
continues to give an interesting pro
