Two Strong Plays.
Little Irene Myers, the talented and
versatile child actress who has been delighting
large audiences at the Grand,
has appeared this week in excellent
plays, but in none was she afforded
such opportunities ns are presented In
"Little Lord Fauntleroy," which will be
to-day's matinee bill. Her work will be
a revelation to those who have not seen
her In the title role In this famous production.
She also has a strong, but not
so prominent a part in "The Stowaway,"
which will be given to-night.
Miss Myers and other members of the
company will Introduce specialties be
tween acts of both plays.
"Hearts of Oak."
It is said that In writing his plays,
James A. Heme takes the quaint characters
from similar people In real life
who come under his notice; thus, In
"Hearts of Oak," Owen Gnrroway was
a fisherman with whom he had come In
contact mnny years ago and whose
characteristics have been perpetuated
In the play. So too, In "Shore Acres"
Uncle Nat and other persons represented
had their living prototypes from
the coast of Maine. In his new play,
"Sag Harbor," the principal part, the
one Mr. Heme plays himself, Is that of
a bluff old sailor and Mr. Heme had In
mind when he drew the character, the
captain of a sailing vessel which plies
between Sag Harbor and the Connecticut
shore on Long Island Sound.
"Hearts of Oak" will be at the Opera
House, this afternoon and to-night.
A Masquerade Ball.
Friday evening, at the Pythian Castle,
South Side, the Clarion Club, a well

masquerade ball, with music by Prof.
