Digby Bell, the comedian who has reached the pinnacle of hs successful stage career In his triumph In com. edy, "The Educaton of Mr- Pipp," at tiw Hyperiln tl-night, was not reared for the stage. "I simply fell Into it," is Mr. Bell's explanatiln. Born in Milwaukee, the son if a weal thy father, the niw popular cimedlan was given a university education and traveled extensively abroad. Coming back to New York where his fathflr had moved, he went at once Into business and was In the offices of the White Star line for several years. He aspired to the army, had a West Point appoint ment within his grasp, then refused it. He went abroad and by some strange combination of circumstances drifted to the stage. His premier was in op era on the Island of Malta. Returanlng to America, now actor and satisfied, he became affiliated with a number of the earlier operatic suc cesses. The programmes of fifteen years ago show him In the most prom inent parts of the successes. He was the original Ko Ko in the production of the "Mikado." As Mr. Plpp, the down-trodden, hen pecked tiusband In the August Thomas Charles .Dane Glgson comedy, "The Education of Mr. Plpp," he has achieved his most brilliant success. Mr. Gibson, the artist creator of the famous types of American girlhood and of the familiar Plpp pictures, declares he Is the only real live flesh and blood Mr. Plpp. His droll delivery of the bright Thomas dialogue makes toe play the. greatest comedy hit of the season.

A store like the Gamble-Desmond Co.'s wields a most effective influence as a quickener of market conditions be cause of its power as an outlet or dis tributing factor, and by such orders as are given 'to conduct a sale like this planned for to-day a factory can be kept busy for days.

He could not make any prediction then regarding Mr. Al corn's recovery, as it was still too soon after the operation, but his chances ap peared good last night. Mr. Alcorn has always been an active athlete and so has a rugged constitution, which now stands him in good stead. .

TWO SMALL BLAZES. Carelessness in Handling Candle Re sults in Fire Alarm. Carelessness In handling a lighted candle caused a fire at 252 Cedar street shortly after 6 o'clock, last evening.

Willie there was a gene ral resemblance In the three portraits, no two looked exactly alike. The World, however, stated In an article de scriptive of the portraits that Mr. Cha pln's Lincoln was unquestionably the ideal Lincoln In the public mind, 'and spoke of his marvelousiy artistic work in the most glowing 'terms. Mr. Chapln himself does not depend a great deal upon his counterfeit presentment ot Lincoln, but does depend rather upon his ability to reproduce toe spirit and soul of the man ajvd martyr. Aside from his unusual endowment by nature to impersonate the great emnncipator, he has given fourteen years of the most careful study of Lincoln his traits of character, and the marvelous personal ity which gave him such a mastery over men. Mr. Chapln will be seen here in "Lincoln," supported by a pow erful company and complete stage equipment at the Hyperion Friday, February 23. "Old Smith's widow has refused a pension." "Great Scott!

Rubinstein, the Polish-pianist whose brilliant qualities recently attracted the New York critics, comes to the Hype, rion Theatre for a single recital on Wednesday evening. He is said to be a youth of extraordinary personal mag netism. ; Whether or not young Rubenstein is, as H. E. Krehbiel wrote in his New York Tribune: "A pianistlc genius of fifty years ago come to life" or hot, he Is unquestionably one of the most In teresting personalities that Europe has sent us. Marvelous stories are told of toe boy's . musical precocity. At the mud-pie age he was transposing Brahms. But it is, in America that Rubinstein, will make his first extended concert tour. His ' success here has not been unlike' his success in Europe, "where with the endorsement of SaintrSaens, Paderewgki, and d' Albert he was .ac cepted by th ultra-fashionable and ar tistic circles of Paris. .

"Of all the actresses now before the public in the role of star, she, perhaps. better thSn any other Is entitled to give her name prominence over thait.of her veniple. - "In times agone she has. appeared in several nonsensical sketches for they were nothing but that which, minus herself, would neither have deserved nor received more than passing1 com ment, and yet these same sketches have added 'to her exchequer and enhanced the general enjoyment of mankind. , "With this as preface, it Is not rash ness to state that Miss Irwin, in 'Mrs. Black is Back,' scored a hit at the Bi jou Thea'tre last night. This Jojly, ebullient woman, who is sixteen' ounces of personality to the pound, was the Mrs. Black of the title, and the remain der of toe cast were "Back'-r-merely background. i?w two seasons Miss Irwin has been in 'permanent retirement' one of her neatest jokes and she has been missed. The really funny women on the Ameri can stage are limited. Perhaps you would count them all on the fingers of one hand.
