Miss Frederick ia not having her in
troduction to Washington theatergoers
this week bv any means. She has not.
However, played in Washington for a
1 number of years. The last time she
1 made a visit to the Capital City she ap-
I neared in Channing Pollock's play, 'The
Little Grav " Lady." Before this she
EUDDorfeaT Wmiam Gillette in "Samson"
and made her professional debut in
"The Fourth Estate." Shortly after her
engagement in this play she married
and retired from the stage for several
years.
Miss Ruth Rose is an outdoors girls,
and while much of her life has been
given up to study, she has never .neg
lected what she terms her "safety
valve."
Hard labor has been laid aside for at
least three hours each day to enable
this yavms actress to take some form
of outdoor exercise, and to this she at
tributes' her excellent health and un
usual strength.
She Was Practically
Born On the Stage.
It might be said of Miss Rose that
she was practically born' to the stage,
for one of her earliest recollections Is
of being held up in her father's .arms
to press a button that rang up the cur
tain on" the first performance ever given
in the Castle Square Theater, Boston.
She is the daughter of Edward Rose,
who, In. his time, was stage manager of
the Boston Museum, -when Miriam
O'Leary, George Wilson, Kate Ryan
and John Mason were members of that
company. He was also the stage di
rector at the Castle Square Theater for
some time after It -was bunt.
Miss Rose made her debut In stock,
and last summer played principal parts
in the Pittsneld. Mass., municipal stock
company. She hopes eventually to bo
at the head of her own stock company.
and has some novel Ideas, wnicn sne
hopes to apply to stock work some of
these days.
Beside being a very beautiful young
woman. Miss Rose has valuable qualm
cations for belna a good actress. Her
voice has been trained in Italy, and sne
studied dramatic art In Paris for a
year. Her last appearance in this city
was in support of Margaret Anglln.
She has one shocking habit, and ttiat
is her riding habit, which Is a bathing
suit. Her favorite diversion Is to don
her bathing suit, which, she says.
mtrm th mnst comfortable and sensi
ble riding habit. Jumn on her horse
bareback, naturally, and ride straight
into the ocean. Some horses will not
do this, but It's great fun when one can
be found that will permit the rider to

During her Washington engagement
Miss Rose has been riding from ten to
twenty miles each day, regardles of the
weather.

Ch.i.le; Frederick Nlrdllnger of the
mos; famous drama written by Jose
Ehcgaray. the celebrated Spanish
playwright. Its action occurs In Madrid,
and its incidents reflect the gay life of
court circles in the Spanish capital. It
Is a siory of hate and Jealousy, of love
and intrigue. In the passing of the
play's episodes there are peculiarly in
teresting references to the scandals In
Madrid born of the systematic grafting
that made the defeat of Spanish armies
and fleets a comparatively easy task
for American fighters. The Xwo cen
tral roles in the play will be interpreted
by Richard Buhler and Miss Frances
Nellson

BILLY PIG'S REVENGE.
B'
ILLY PIG and Billy Goat, as yon
Will remember, were shingling
the barn when we last heard of
them. Well, I must tell you
what happened .and. how Billy pig re
venged his wrongs.
From, the top of the shed Billy Pis
and Billy 'Goat could see for quite a
distance, and all at once Billy Vis
dropped his hammer and said: "Look,
Billy Goat, who is that coming along
the roadT It looks to me very much
like "
"It is," nald Billy Goat; 'It is Mr.
Bruin, and he Is carrying your dress
suit case. Hurry and get down. We
must be tn the house; with the doors
and windows locked before he reaches
here." , "
By this time Mr. Brain, had reached
the gate and-. was walking up the path,
looking the house weU' oyer to see if
there was anyone' in slgnt, but all was
quiet and, no sign of life to he seen.
"That is too bad." said 31r. Bruin,
sitting down on the steps, and listen
ing. "Here I have" come to bring home
Bl Pig's sulV case and 'to Inquire
why ho left us sc suddenly; and after
all my trouble I And the house closed."
Then he knocked very loudly on the
door, and this timeMadanie Pig put her
head out of the attic window. --"What is
wantedr she asked.
"Oh! Rood day. Madam. Pig,! said Mr.
Bruin, with his most polite bow, !
thought you all were away. I came to
inquire if Billy Pig was t home. He
left his suit case at our house and 1
have brought it back."
Madam P"lg'toId a fib .and said Billy
Pig had not returned, but- she- did not
know Just 'What to do, for alie felfaulte

"Bring up some pear and peach' pre

as Madam Pi's went downstairs. '"I
Just hate to see It wasted en thatMr.
Bruin, but there is no other way.'"
Madam Pig- was back in a minute,
and with her she brougnt n basket and
a piece of clothesline.
Into the basket she put a Jar of
honey and Ued the clotaesllne to the
handle pf the basket. Then she lower
ed it into Bruin's valUag arms and
watched him eat the honey.

"Yes, it la he," said Billy Goat, "sure
enough, but he could not have; come at

watch the fun. He will never stop to
find you." , v ,
Billy piff did not quite understand
what was to happen, but he came out
irom his hiding place and went to the
wJn1d0?rwlth his mother and .Billy Goat.
The Man, when he reached the house,
stopped and looked it over, as Bruin
nad done, and then he walked up to the
door and knocked very, very hard, shale
mg the hduse with his blows.
Billy Pig began to tretnble.,but it was
over In a second, for hardly had the
man finished knocking when out from
behind the house came Bruin with a
growl and started for Mr. Man.
Jlr Man almost fell right down where
ne stood, for be was bo frightened, but
he knew he must ran if he w'shed to
escape, and he did, and Bruin after him.

tried, but he only wanted ta have a HtUe

short distance and then he remembered
the preserves waiting for Tiinv and giv

Man run faster, Bruln turned and

again.

Pig's suit case."
So BUly Goat slipped down to th
yard and took the suit case, and then
he took the kettle of water, which was

He told BUly Pig to take all the bricks
ho could jcarry from the fireplace and
bring them un also, and whm Ttmin re

lu'isn. j
He did lauch. and then he toM MjAnm
Pig to lower some more preserve, and
to lower them quick, too. He felt very
safe, now that he had Mr. Man out ol
the way.
"I will send them right down. Mr.
Bruln.-" said Madam. Pig very sweetly,
here they are." 'and as she spoke sh
tipped -the kettle and let the- boiling
water fall on Bruin, and at the same
time Billy Goat and Billy Pig threw the
bricks and made a loud noise with
their feet against the well nnUI it
sounded as if the place was filled with
demons that had come to destroy Bruin.
He did not stop to find out what had
happened, but took to his heels and toes,
too. and ran faster than Mr. Man had,
much faster, for in a few minutes he
was out of sight and he never came
back.
And now that we have Billy Phr al
home with his mother and good friends,
with Billy Goat we will say good-by
to him. but I must tell vou that RIllv
Goat lived with Madam Pig and Billy
Pie the rest of his days, and a ver
