MISSCROSMAN
IN NEW PLAY
Critical Moment Saved by
Talent of Star; Disap
pointing in Theme
Henrietta Crosman is as charming
as ever, but her new place is scarcely
worthy of mention, and certainly not
worthy of the ever-welcome Miss
Crosman. "Tne Critical Moment," a |
• triangle" play by Stanley Dark and
Era Dennison, is very disappointing,
and even Miss Crosman's wonderful
acting could not get it over too "well
at the Orpheum last evening, when
it was played^to a handful of people.
It will bp presented again this eve- !
ning.
To those who have seen her in her
previous succeas, when she has been
surrounded by a more possible cast,
and shared the triumphs with such
stars as William Faversham and
Charles Cherry, as she did in Shaw's
"Getting Married," the play of last
evening was even more than disap
-Ing. Whoever urged it upon Miss
Crosman was certainly guilty of a
supreme lack of judgment.
As Rhoda Callighan, the friend who
tnies to avert the threatened break
in the home, and goes so far in her
friendship that she jeopardizes her
own reputation and future happiness, I
Miss Crosman was her old self, witty, i
keen, ever alive to battle, and per- I
petually seeking to aid her friend, j
In her supporting east Harry Uurk-j
hardt, as the faithful friend and lover!
of Rhoda, lid ward Harney, as the I
wrong angle of the triangle, and EI- ;
wyn Harvey as the girl who is try-|
iiy to force the break, were quite 1
good. The rest of the cast was also j
present.

ble Medicine
Many people fear to take medicine
to check and abort colds, cure
coughs, catarrh, etc. This fear is
groundless with till the products of
The Blackburn Products Co., Day
lon, Ohio. Not one contains opi-1
ates, narcotics or harmful drugs. !
Mentlio-Laxene, for coughs, colds, 1
catarrh and all distress following a
cold is a compound of Wild Cherry,
Tolu. Oascara, Grindelia, Menthoe
Ammonium Chloride, and alcohol
sufficient to preserve and keep in
solution.
Every ingredient is in concentrated |
form and the medicine is so strong
that only tor.--drop doses are to he,
taken in the "raw" state. But the
ideal way Is to make into syrup by
emptying a 2 R oz. bottle of Men-,
tho-Laxene into a pint bottle and
tlien fill the bott'e with granulated
sugar syrup, made by dissolving a
pint of sugar in a half pint of boil- j

that this makes a most effective i

I THE MIRACLE MAN
On Saturday afternoon a new pic-J
Mure opened at the Chestnut Street
I Opera House'in I'hiiadelphia. It had I
I been heralded by its producers as be- I
| ins a marvelous picture, one which |
was so far out of the ordinary as to I
I be called a Miracle picture.
I On Monday morning the Philadel- j
phia North American devoted to the ]
•exclusion of all other editorials two
full editorial columns to a story and |
review of this wonderful picture
| called the "Miracle Man." .lust to
I quote the North American in a few ]
excerpts will give the reader a good,
| conception of this latest wonder
j picture.
Its elusive yet unforgettable quali-
1 1y is revealed in the fact that the]
J story may be. told in two sentences, i
I yet might not be conveyed in words j
tilling as many pages. A gang of]
tenderloin criminals hear of the I
; j strange powers of a "patriarch" in a
(remote village, whose beauty of llle
land faith have helped to bring health:
■j and peace of mind to the suffering:;
j assuming innocence and belief, they;
I surround him, and stage a pretended i
] "miracle," through which they plan;
to exploit the sightless healer as a
I business enterprise. Their cunning
I I succeeds beyond all their hopes. But j
unconsciously they fall under ihej
spell which they hud sought to use—|
thev arc themselves transformer j
lifted by faith from depravity to a]
, cleansed, ennobled manhood and;
womanhood. i
That is all. A theme of elemental |
! simplicity, yet as complex as the hij- j
11 man heart; as modern as yesterday s;
news, yet as old as the hills of Csali-j
' lee. It is the simplicity of the story:
' and its telling that makes the pic
. turo's success so striking. _ It has |
itnone of the magnificent settings and;
ingenious theatrical illusions of those ;
[ spectacles which have evoked j
. claim and wonderment. Tts subtle
power is comparable oniy to that o.
; one other production, "Broken Blos
soms." And that searching drama
has the special appeal of an Idealised |
foreign atmosphere, of a suggestion j
of livid horror which stirs by sheer;
1 pain the depths of feeling. But the
1 magnetism of this story lies in ;ts i
scenes of beauty and tranquility no!
less than in those of sordidness and j
ferocitv. Its passion is masterful, i
' hut its quietude is irresistible. It'
1 steals into the heart like an exquisite |
poem lives in the memory like a !
! haunting song.

Augustus Pitou, Inc.. arc present- |
ing the only authorized version of i
I'cnmuii Thompson's "The Old Home-|
sleud," now on Its thirty-third annual j
t"iir. The play comes to the Orpheum ;
to-morrow evening with a cast of un- '
usual excellence, headed by William I
I,awience*as "Uncle Josh" and a dou
ble quartet of talented singers in the
good old songs which have always
proved se popular with the produc-1
lion.
To the many thousands -who have
beiome fond of the delightful old |
play and its people, it may be inter- ;
esting to know that. Mr. Thompson
took most of his characters from real,
life. ITncle Joshua Is a composite re
production of two persons who lived
in Swunzey. one known as Captain*|
Whltcomb and the other as Joshua
11 olbrook. The Captain furnished the
comedy and Joshua suggested the
more serious momeats of the play.
The original of Aunt. Matilda was a
sister of Joshua Holbrook and known
to all the people of Swunzey as Aunt
rthndv, u tender, honest, faithful,
lespecluble old woman; Cy Prime
was a fellow townsmen who had the
reputation of being the biggest liar
in Cheshire county and Setli Perkins
was a composite of several charac
ters; Henry Hopkins was a real boy
playmate of Penman Thompson who
went to New York, "made good" and
required wealth. The good whole
some philosophy of "The Old Home
stead" was the living philosophy of .1
real Uncle Josh, and its people were
people from real life. It is probably
a sound conclusion, therefore, thai.
"The Old Homestead" appeals so
strongly because it represents iii'e
truly. .
