in Collection at American
Art, Assoeintion.
The second great collection ot' antiuuei
to be shown at the American Art Association
this season comes to this country
f.om Paris, being the property of a
French expert, Mme. Annette L.efortler.
The objects are of great, luxury, having
been made for princes and great
art patrons In epochs when art flourished
at its highest. Its dispersal will
attract with attention, as it is an instance
of the much commented flow of
the treasures of Kurope to this country,
due to the war. The collection is now
011 exhibition
Rare laces that figure in it, along with
the Tudor needlework, tapestries, rich
furniture, ancient ironwork and carvings,
have all been arranged beautifully
and suggestively so that the highest
modern uses of these things?which are
not always the same as the mediaeval
uses of them?are made apparent to the
most casual student. Perhaps the nearest
approach in the collection to a genuinely
modern note is the group of diamond
jewelry, but this is an addition
to the sale upon behalf of an American
I.nrsre Collection of I,aces.
The laces will arouse the admiration
of connoisseurs?although for that mat
inr wnai woman is not an instinctive
student of laces? And since tliey have
been draped against dark velvet backgrounds
all the marvels of workmanship
and design are accented. They include
specimens of all tho forms in
which laces have been employed, such
as bridal and benediction veils, caps,
handkerchiefs, dresses and flounces, besides
table covers, valances, bedspreads,
and one example of the magnificence of
Spanish ecclesiastical vestments. A
Brussels lac? bridal veil dates from
about 1830, and is a charming example
of early point applique. Other types of
laces are in point d'Argcntan, point
d'Angleterre, Venetian needle point,
fumi uo .Yiimn ana paint a a If neon.
Very wonderful are Mine. J-.elort!?r'g
panels or Tudoi needlework. They portray
In highly fanciful manner nipposed
incidents in the careers of Henry
VIII. and Queen Elizabeth, and besides
being extraordinary as examples of mers
skill are also lovely In color. The
schemes were doubtless bolder centuries
ago, but they arc now softened into
1 lovely harmonies of springlike greens
and pale yellows.
The collection contains forty tapestries
of great Interest. Most of them come
from great collections and have nistorics
as fascinating as the events they
; portray. Four Flemish Reihassance
tapestries of the sixteenth century, forI
merly owned by the French Minister
Jean I'upuy, illustrate episodes of the
| legendary visit of the great Attic hero
Theseus to the court of Minos, King of
the Cretans, The settings of the incidents
are most fantastic, with views of
extensive nrbored Italian gardens,
which, while owing much to the fertile
imagination of the designer, reflects.
nevertheless, the taste of the period.
They arc not. indeed, without their
-uggesthins for the landscape architects
of this period.
I-lnrly French Tape* trie*.
Two diverting early French tapestries
portray skating scenes. The groups of
_ foreground skaters are broadly designed
and richly colored. They satisfy every
j esthetic mural demand, but are so rich
rj in humorous detail, in the Dutch fashII
ion. that the entertainment to bo got
|| from them is Inexhaustible. There were
| gallants, it seems, in the Gothic Renals||
sanee period who skated to make a hit
|| with tiie bystanders, much as the same
|| gallants now do in our own Central
| ! I'ark.
The furniture includes a Florentine
refectory table of the sixteenth century,
a mounted tullpwood palace table made
by a French master cabinetmaker for ?
Marches t of the I'allavicini family, a
tullpwood comtnode, a needlework wali
nut sofa of the Louis XIII. period and
one of the l.oui- XVI. time, and rrany
I!chairs, side tables, overdoors. andirons,
) clocks, and cabinets.
The Jewelry, which cornea from the
estate of the late Margarita Harvey, Include*
rings, pins, earrings, bracelets
and chains. The d iamonds that figure in
them are of imposing sizes and of a

yesterday attended the theatres last J
night in large numbers.
"The Greenwich Village Follies" at i
the Shubert was the attraction the victorious
Navy eleven saw last night. Besides
the eleven there were about a
thousand others of the navy crowd. The
' entire lower floor and all the boxes were
' taken for them a month ago. Capt.
E. C. Ewen led his warriors to seats
In flie middle of the orchestra section,
where they cheered and were cheered
during the evening.
Between the acts the Captain was
called on for a speech. "We not those
boys and showed them how to do It."
was his eleven word address. "We're
glad we won," said another. "It was a
real touchdown and a real victory," said
a third.
The victory was mentioned from the
stage also. "You can't keep the navydown.
It made the army come over," a
said Savoy to Brennan. "It was a
glorious afternoon if it did rain to- 8
night," said Miss Constance to Miss G
Irene Barber.
Many officers smiled on the proceed- '
ings from the boxes. *
Gen. John J. Pershing and a party of 1
friends occupied two boxes at the Cen- J
tury Theatre last night to witness the *
performance of "Mecca." Among the '
men in the party were i>ioya v.. un?
com and former Senator Warren.
A party of sixty naval officers occu- c
pied boxes and orchestra chairs at the
performance of "Pitter Patter" at the '
l.ongacre last night and later entertained
Miss .lane Richardson, tlie prima '
donna of the musical comedy, at the <

Corrn ii Procession by Vtmnnro n |
The Anderson Galleries placed on view '
yesterday the Japanese color prints belonging
to Dr. J. Clarence Webster and t
W. P. R. Southern, preliminary to a sale r
at auction on December 2. The chief 1
ftature of the collection, doubtless, is a p
hrptatych by Utamaro, called the "Co- I
rian Procession." It represents a Co- a
rean ambassador at the Niwaka festival,
with Mount Fuji in the background. The v
composition is connected through each s
of the seven sheets, hut each separate
sheet is, in the Japanese fashion, com- (
piete in itself. The geisha girls of the
i ptoccasion are drawn with Utamaro's
i most flowing lines. I
The exhibition includes also two in- t
t.'-esting portraits of actors by the fa- ^
nious Hharaku, who was once an actor I
h'msclf, and drew "the profession" with l
ar. inside knowledge of the art that once t!

ritiea Circuit.
Announcement was made yesterday
of the actual formation of a working
combination between the Selwyns. Ham ,
II. Harris and Arthur Hopkins, for the
imrpoae of establishing a circuit where
the. an present their own plays on 1
th.-lr own terms. This semi-independent
iic isUon is tlie third in the theatrical
rt. !vi -he others b"in| the Huuberts and
Kla* and Krlanger.
Arch Selwyn said the first step that
nought tlie nen alignment into being
iad lust been taken in Chicago when ;
Mr Harris took over the management
>f ftoe of two theatres to be built for
he .x'lwyns this spring. Arrangements
sere then made for a close working
igrcenient at a meeting at which Arhur
Hopkins was represented by atomey.
Tlie new combination places under Its
tanner twelve theatres built or bulldnif

Each manager is to maintain his
K'P.irale identity, producing independintly
as before. Mr. Harris said it in n 11
lefensive a 111?nop. declaring tni?t tney j
vould wage war on nobody, but simply )
vant to assure themselves of a "big city
ilrcult" In New York. Chicago and Bos- |
on. so that they could be certain of a ,
ilace to put worthy productions of their i
iwn. Far from seeking to establish a J
looking office, he said the combination I
could be willing to book with Klaw and
'rlangcr or titc Shuberts outside tile big I
Itles He stated that his own contract ,
cith K. and K. had three years to run ;
nd that it allowed lilm to hook clserliere
whenever that firm, with whom
le was to do a preferential hooking had
10 liniiM to offer. Arch S"lwy? .-aid
hai his drm's ten y -ar contract with the
ihubort> allowed tiieni the same leeway,
ind added :
"This association is due to the congestion
In theatres. Because of the
treat prosperity in the theatrical busiless
last season outsiders have entered
n with their capital, have given a higter
weekly guarantee foa a house tivan
ve could offer, even who" their attraclon
had little nwit, and have been able
o keep out meritorious attractions
vhich regular producers who have been
ill their lives In the game had spent
nuc'h time and money in making worthy
if a New York hearing."
T>ee Shubert. was undisturbed by the
.... ..mklnoHnn
"A new circuit Is not probable nor
>ossible, though so far as I am con'
erned T would welcome It." said lie
'The Sclwyns for the next eight years
'annot play any attractions in theatres
xcopt those named by us. Hopkins
annot produce any plays here without
iresentins thern later In the Shubert
heat res throughout the country. Hards
is under a similar agreement with
Slaw and Erlanger."
The Irish Players will give a costume

Philippine and Spanish War
Veterans Entertain.
One of the most realistic representations
<yf cannibal dancing was presented
Wednesday evening at Maennerchor
Hall, DCfc Kast Fifty-sixth street, by
the Military Order of the Serpents
(Snaix), Batangas Lair No. 3, an organization
composed solely of Philippine
and Spanish War veterans.
Dancers garbed in the costume's of
the Mora, Visayen and Tigalog tribes
performed their ritual ceremonies before
their chieftains, gugus (medicine
men; unu natives. iney nancca ana
leaped to the boom of huge tom-toms
while the circle of natives beat the
floor with their knives, spears and
clubs. Hawaiian dancing loilowed by
girls dressed in stra\v skirts and beads.
Knives, spears and skulls that glistened,
in the half light were rampant
in their abundance.
The Military Order of the Serpents is
a burlesque modelled after the famous
Kapltunan tribe and can bp traced back
for several centuries. The Kapitunan's
original purpose was to resist the
Spanish. The order In Its every act
and word has Its counterpart in the
weird ceremonies of the Kapltunan
tribe. The costumes are accurately
copied from the Btyles and fashions of
the Moro tribe. The lair receives its
name from the province of Batangas,
located in the southern portion of the
island of Luzon, V. I.
"Follies a .a Mode." a new burlesque,
written by William K. Wells, will be presented
by the Roseland Girls Company
