Cohan, will complete a three night's engagement, with a special Saturday matinee performance of his latest American musical play entitled "GeorgeWashington, Jr." The piece Is of a similar character to "Little Johnny Jones" and "Forty-five Min utes From Broadway.' The story Is told in three acts and four scenes.which represents Mount Vernon, Va., the home of George Washington, a corridor In the New Wlllard Hotel In Washington, D. C, the apartments of a United States sen ator, and a public square In Pawtuek- Ct, R. I., showing the unveiling of a monument. George M. Cohan, who is the author of the book, lyrlos and music of the play, will appear in the title role. Interpolated throughout the action of the play are nine musical numbers, which are introduced insuch a clever way as to further the' telling of .the tale. These songs are "The Grand Old Bag," "Virginia," "He Was a Wonder ful Man," "If Washington Should Come to Life," '"Til be There With Bells On," "The Wedding of the Blue and Gray" and "Never Been Over There." It is predicted that Mr- Ro han's new songs will surpass in popu larity those of "Johnny Jones," and in a few weeks be whistled and sung all ever America. The company supporting Mr. Cohan consists of fifty players with a chorfus of quality rather than quantity. The cast of leading' principals includes Jer ry J. Cohan and Helen Cohan, the father and mother of the star, Eugene O'Rourke, Scamp Montgomery, Cleve land Nicholson, Frank McNish, Jr., Jfofin Kauffman, Truly Shattuck, Ag nes Glldea, Rosella Rhodes and Ethel Levey.. , CUT I 2252S3S Special in Overcoats 9.50 From Lines That Have Been $12 to $20. i , It's the end of the season, practically; for a wonderful business has broken all our lines.

A special from Boston last night eays: ., Madame Sarah Bernhardt, the World's greatest tragedienne, was hon ored to-night by the Cercle Fraicais of Harvard university, who attended the performance of "Phedre" in a body at the Boston Theatre, and after th'e final curtain went on the stage and presented to Madame Bernhardt the Cercle "Francais gold medal. This rneaaT Is one of the most distin guished honors conferred by any soci ety of Harvard university, and has been invariably reserved for eminent ; men in letters and art who have ap- j jjeared before the Cercle in the James Hassen Hyde course of leotures. Only once before in the history of Harvard . University has it been given to anyone connected with the stage. The reci pient on that occasion was Mons. Con etance Ooquelln, who was with Mad ame Bernhardt on her last preceding American tour. This is also the first time the medal has ever been given to a woman, and it is Inscribed to indicate that it is presented to Madame Bern hardt in homage and recognition of her services to French life and history, letters and art.

The public dig not participate in the presentation, which was behind the curtain. Madame Bernhardt received the members graciously as they grouped about her on the stage. Presi dent E. C. Edeon of the Cercle present ed the honor with a neat speech in French, in which he paid high tribute to the life-long devotion of Madame Bernhardt to the highest form of the Uramatic are. In accepting the medal, frladame Bernhardt recalled that she had intended to be present as guest of honor at a Cercle matinee performance of Moliere's "IV Amour Medecin" on January 18, with which, however, the mid-winter examinations at Harvard Interfered. She expressed deepest in terest In the work c the Freucn etu- calse, which is devoted to the analyti cal study of French drama and litera ture. "I notice with pleasure," said Mad ame Bernhardt, "that more Frenoh Is spoken In this country than on my pre vious visits, and in this I see a large intellectual development in the genera tion now growing up about us. It is a good sign and a healthy sign." After the presentation the Harvard boys gave the Mad,ame three rousing oheers and a tiger, followed by the un iversity yell and a tumultuous waving of colors.

The new melodrama, "The Confes sions of a Wife," by Owen Davis, will be seen at the New Haven Theatre on Mon3ay, Tuesday and Wednesday nights of next week, and at the mati nee Wednesday. "The Confessions of a Wife" does not have to depend alone on its scenes and incidents to gain ap probation. It is a play, first, last and always! It appeals, It absorbs, it thrills and it instruct. When one has accomplished this there is nothing ap parently that has ' been left undone. Persons who attend the theatre nowa days do not care to be bored by spec tacular effects or idle harangue on the stage. They want more than this, and in "The Confessions of a Wife" aM these tastes have been catered to. The village blacksmith has been ' immor talized before this in song and story. RUNNING FOR OFFICE. "Running for Office" is probably one of the most successful musical come dies of th,e present day. According to the New York Evening Journal, "Run ning for Office" is a "real hit." .Not only the Journal, but a score of the New York papers endorsed the play and company as one of the best things of the season. The Sun said: "There is more snap and ginger in one single act than In all the rest of the musical comedy shows of the season In the ag gregate." Nothing but praise was giv en the production during its long run In New York, and its long season on the road last year. The play, with an immense cast and chorus, will be seen at the New Haven Theatre on Thurs day,. Friday and Saturday nights, Feb-: ruary 1, 2 and S, and will be presented with the original production under the management of Sam H. Harris, who also controls the destinies of a dozen big musical successes. There will be a matinee Saturday. Orders are rapidly coming la for amusement is the conduct of an lne briated spectator, who falls out of hU box into perilous positions time aftei time, while a schoolboy and hiB father, oocupying another box, also contribute to the screams of fun. An unusually elaborate stage setting is employed in this act, and sixteen players appear in Its presentation." A strong supporting olio is being ar ranged, which includes Eddie Leonard, the old-time minstrel, and the Sharp brothel's with their elaborately staged act, "In Dixie Land;" T. W. Eckert and Emma Berg with "The Land of the Two Moons," a popular operatic num ber; Lavlne-Oimeron Trio with their aorobatic act; llss Rae Cox, a south ern dia-leof comedienne; Darras - broth ers, gymnasts and acrobats; Ethel MacDonough and the electrograph with scenes in a rolling mill and lots of oth ers, i Seats are n6w on sale for all of next week's performances. Rice and Provost and a host of others make up this week's great offering at Poll's new theater. BIJoo Theater. "The Charity Ball," as performed by the stock company at the Bijou theater this week, easily takes rank with many a higher-priced play that has visited our city. The work of the company is excellent. At the matinee to-day a souvenir photograph of one of the mem bers of the company will be given to all who attend. Commencing next Monday the com pany will appear in Count Leo Tolstoi's great Russian play, "The Resurrec tion," a play depicting the horrors of Russian prison life in Siberia. THE RESURRECTION. The (took company at the Bijou the ater will present next week the power ful Russian play by Count Lao Tolstoi; entitled "The Resurrection." The play waa made famous in this country by Miss Blanche Walsh, and was endorsed by the newspaper critics as being one of the strongest and most interesting plays ever presented. Mies Gertrude Shrpman will be seen in the part of Maslova and Lawrence B. McGUl In the part of Prince Dimitii. The great court-room scene, where Maslova la condemned to Siberia, is in tense in interest. The scenes have been prepared with great care, speoial atten tion being paid to the famous Siberian prison scene in whioh the men and women convicts are being driven across ccutit'ry over the snow and ice of that far northern land. The play Is so dramatic that it keeps an- audience spellbound. A fine vein of comedy is interwoven. Matinees will gi en daHy. The Magic of 18 Cents. "Ioe Cream Cake," with that "mad.ahorae,, smack.
