Keith's this week runs to a dazzling display of dainty damsels. This may sound like a cir cus press agent's alliterative aspect, but it is quite true. Seats In the bald head row bid fair this week to rival the popularity of a ton of coal or a sack of sugar. Bothwell Browne and AnatoT l""ried land share the stellar honors, and vie with each other with their aggrega tions of the female of the species. Bothwell Browne has with him * flock of bathing girls In costumes, that while they would very likely never be seen in the water, are enough to make mere man gasp with joy. The scenic effects are lavish, and Browne pleases immensely with his dancing. He is ably supported by a dainty couple, yclept the Browne sis ters. Then after one has feasted his, or her, eyes on the bevy of bathing beauties, along comes Anatol Fried land, well known to every one as the composer or many songs that have occupied the spotlight of musicland for many years. He, too, has sur rounded himself with many speci mens of female loveliness, headed by Alma Adair. We take our partner's word for' it that the girls wore "some", gowns. Friedland's offering. *Mubic Land," Is a compelling combination of song and dance. Next to the girl shows, rivals for the plaudits of the audience were a pair of "nut" acts. Albert or pecan, take your choice. Ward and Van are pe'rformers on the harp and the vio lin, gave a sort of "nut-on-the-half shell" variety, and in the parlance of "vodevil" were a riot. Joe Cook's act was all nut, sort of unshelled nut, as It were. He does all the things that & half dozen acts might ordinarily do, and Is a humorist of no slight ability. With his assist ant he provoked the well known gales of laughter time and again. Terpslchorean fantasies were pleas ingly done by Ernestine Myers and Paisley Noon. To say that they can dance is putting it rather mildly. Their act was fresh and new, and the setting, a riot of color, was a master piece. Emerson and Baldwin hare a travesty, "So This Is Paris," and are club swingers of real merit. Bartholdi's birds o|fen the show. These educated birds are of all va rieties, and quite a bit better than the usual "dumb" act House features concluded a bill which will do the tired business-man, as our N' Tawk friends are wont to say. a world of good to see. In fact the business man who is not tired will enjoy It Just as much. GAYETY. Songs, Dances and Honor Plentiful. There Is a wealth of good material 'n James E. Cooper's "Best Show In Town," playing at the Garety this week, and with Frank Hunter at its head, the company puts over a show that Is hard to beat. The entertain ment is divided Into two parts, the opening number bearing the title of "Here, There and Everywhere," while [ "Hello, Jazz" closes the show. Hunter appears first as an Italian vagabond and then in blackface. His original methods stamp him as one of the most versatile comedians in burlesque, and in this year's vehicle he finds plenty of opportunities to dis play his ability. Manny Kohler and Charles Wesson are able assistants in the funmaklng, while Ralph Rocka way, in a straight role. Is good. Lynn Cantor is not only good look ing, but has an exceptionally pleas ing voice. Her songs are a distinct feature of the entertainment. The McCloud sisters, Mabel and Flossie, introduce a number of new jazz dances, while Virginia Ware and Mar gie Winters are effective In son^s nnd dances. A capable chorus and lavish costuming feature the new hooper show. PENN GARDENS. New Year Ere Party on Wednesday Night.
