Cleo de Merode having arrived in
New York has naturally been the object
of curiosity to newspaper reporters. The
fact that a dancer receiving forty dol
lars a month in Paris could secure an
engagement In New York at nine thous
and dollars a month Is significant of
other attractions on her part than the
mere ability to perform saltatory ex
ercises. What those attractions are,
time may reveal. In the meantime the
eastern papers are full of pictures of
the woman, copied of course In San
Francisco, and her personal attractions,
according to description, do not seem in
any respect to outshine, or even to equal,
those of other professional stage beau
ties of record. Her one eccentricity,
that of keeping her ears covered by her
hair, has been carefully availed of by a
reporter who succeeded in getting a pic
ture of the woman's ears to demonstrate
that she was not destitute of auricular
appendages, as her detractors end press
agents had caused to be rumored For
the present, the drawing power of the
young woman ln question appears to be
concentrated tn the fact that scandal
has connected her name In big red let
ters with that of the played-out monarch
of a little effete European monarchy.
Volla tout!

■William H. Crane, the comedian, who
is at present in San Francisco, where he
ls meeting with much success, comes to
the Los Angeles theater on Wednesday,
October 6, and will remain for the bal
ance of the week. Mr. Crane is one of
the best known actors on the American
stage and holds an enviable place ln
his profession It may be interesting to
know that tbe contracts calling for the
comedian's present tour were made and
signed as long as three years ago. While
here Mr. Crane will present two of his
best known American comedies. These
are "A Virginia Courtship" and "A Fool
of Fortune." The plays will be given, it
ls promised, with all the original scenery
and effects.

It ls announced that the Italian Grand
Opera Company at present playing at the
National Theater, Mexico, will positive
ly open a season of grand opera in this
city during the month of October, but
whether It will be given at the Los Ange
les theater or at Hazard's pavilion has
not yet been settled. The company was
organized at Milan, and ls said to be
composed of young singers, Including
some of the most promising artists in
Italian opera. It was intended to put
in a long season at Havana, but, as Gen
eral Weyler has not succeeded in "paci
fying" the island of Cuba, the company
will fill time in Los Angeles and San
Francisco. The most important event
of the season here will be the production
of Puccini's "La Boheme" which has
never yet been played ln the United
States. It was first produced at La
Scala theater, Milan, over a year ago
and is said to have scored a great suc
cess. "La Giaconda" is also to be a
feature of the repertory. The members
of the company are dignified by a string
of high-sounding Italian names which
are not familiar here, but which will
doubtless become so on the occasion of
their appearance before this public.

1 The dramatic version of "A Lady
of Quality" is giving Mrs. Burnett a
peck of trouble even to the extent, it
is Bald, of causing her to bring suit
against Daniel Frohman who is about
to stage the piece in New York. Mrs.
Burnett claims that neither she nor her
representative, Stephen Townsend.have
been allowed to have anything to say
about the proper interpretation of the
characters by the performers, nor about
the arrangement of the scenes and other
details important to perfect representa
tion of the author's ideas. Mr. Frohman
appears inclined to resent any med
dling with his work, but the suit will
serve as a very good advance advertise
ment of the new production. I see that
Eleanor Calhoun is to take the part of
the heroine in the London production of
this play, soon after Christmas.
A San Francisco dispatch says that
Harry Corson Clarke will quit the Fraw
ley company, having signed with ihe
Alcazar management and will appear at
that theater ln a couple of weeks. Mr.
Frawley does not appear to have a great
amount of business tact ln dealing with
his people and has also contrived to be
at cross purposes with other managers
without adding any dignity to his own

Francis Carlyle, who was a member
of the Alcazar company, refused to play
a part assigned him on the ground that
it was not good enough, not sufficiently
prominent. He brought suit to recover
his salary and was beaten; the Judge
deciding that he must play in order to
get his pay..

Little Leola Mitchell Is chief among
the star attractions at the Orpheum. She
ls so diminutive that while she is cer
tainly over two feet she is not more
than four feet high. Fortunately her
proportions are not as attenuated as
her low stature might Indicate. She has
a pretty face, with delicately cut fea
tures, admirably suited to her baby lm
personations, She sings like a bird and j
having the advantage of youth, talent
and high spirits she ls a decided success
wherever she goes. In addition to her
other accomplishments, the little woman
ls said to have marvelous ability as a
palmist, and her reputation for reading
character by the practice of chiromancy
has extended from South Africa to the
United States,

Mrs, Alice P. Ludlam, well known
here as manager of the Ludlam
School of Oratory and Art, andi also

kindred movements, has opened a school
of elocution and dramatic art ln San
Francisco. Mrs. Ludlam ls finely qual
ified for the work she has undertaken.

Another Los Angeles girl has embark
ed in the dramatic profession and has
bright prospects before her. Miss Ger
trude Foster, favorably known here for
her work on the platform and amateur
stage, later a member of the Burbank
theater stock company, in which she
distinguished herself particularly in
emotional roles, and subsequently as
Queer. Elizabeth to the Mary Stuart of
Madame Modjeska, is now a prominent
member of the Alcazar theater company
ln San Francisco. She appears to have
made a success ln the leading role of
H. Grattan Donnelly's "An American
Girl," now being played at that theater.
Here is what Town Talk says of Miss
Foster's appearance:
Considerable Interest has centered In
the first appearance of Miss Gertrude
Foster in the role of Jasmine Carew.
Miss Foster, whoas portrait appears on
Town Talk's title page, has certainly
not disappointed an.y of her friends, and
has made a distinctly favorable Impres
sion upon the Alcazar's patrons. She
has decided ability ln emotional roles
and will do thoroughly good work when
time and practice have had their inn
ings. It is clearly evident that she is a
hard student with an honest determina
tion to succeed l , not merely to pose be
fore the public, as is the case sometimes
with debutantes whose ambition to get
before the footlights is apparently a
superficial one. Miss Foster possesses
grace, an intellectual grasp of situa
tions and a sympathetic comprehension
of her role. She enunciates distinctly
and has personal magnetism. In the
title role she does credit to the type-rep

It has been reported for some time
past that Richard Mansfield had writ
ten a book which was soon to appear.
After reading what the author-actor
has to say about his forthcoming book,
as reported ln a newspaper interview,
public expectation will not be wrought
up to a very high pitch about Mr. Mans
field's "odd conceits." He says:
"I wrote the book three years ago,
while traveling through the south. My
wife was with me, and a young lady
named Jessie was with her. We were
playing in the evening, and it was one of
those rare times ln my life when I had
a little leisure. I did the writing day by
day ln my car, setting down the odd con
ceits that came into my mind. Each day
I read what I had written to my wife
and her friend. I called the story the
'Adventures of Beatrice and Jessie.' The
writing was done purely to pass away
the time and to entertain my wife, Be
atrice, and Jessie. It amused them, and
I became interested in it and so contin
ued writing longer than I expected
when I started. About a year ago I was
spending a few weeks at a summer re
sort in Massachusetts, and to amuse
some young folks one day I hunted up
the manuscript relating to Beatrice and
Jessie and. read It to them. They
chanced to be in the right mood, and the
story was quite favorably received. So
the book is to be printed, and I suppose
the critics will soon be roasting me un
Coming Attractions
Announcement.) The attraction at the
Burbank beginning tomorrow evening,
the 27th, will be the Broadway theater
company of New York city. Tffls Is one
of the strongest of eastern companies.
The cast Includes Sarah Truax, favora
bly and well known here. She playfd
in this city last season as leading lady
with the Otis Skinner company. Helen
Henry, a taler.ted little soubrette; Nan
Miflin, Marie Blossom, Chas, Hallock
and Harry Blakemore; the latter was
last here with the Frawley Co., when
he made a most desirable reputation for
himself. The next on the list is Guy
Bates Post, well known here, he having
visited this city with some of the best
companies. Harry Adams, Kennie Mc-
Leod, Walter O'Connor, H. M. Mears,
John Rogers and other equally well
known players.
"Young Mrs.Winthrop"will be the first
week's production, and a more charming
drama could not be selected. This piece
Is Mr. Bronson Howard's most success
ful work. It was written by him a doz
en years ago and was first produced in
New York city at the Madison Squar:-.
where It had an eminently successful
run of over two years. The Frohmans
brought It out and afterwards toured
the country with it, playing ln the larger
cities only. The sentiment and human
feeling in the piece which made it a hit
years ago, have been its sustaining fea
tures ever since. The plot tells of love
and Jealousy, tears and laughter, and a
dainty vein of comedy runs throughout
the entire piece. The principal interest
centers In a Jealous wife, who becomes
estranged from her husband through
misunderstandings. She believes her
husband to be enamored of another wo
man. She misconstrues his every ac
tion, while he, ln reality, Is endeavor
ing to protect his wife's brpther, who
has committed forgery, from the result
of his crime. In the end, however, rec
onciliation ls effected and the scene
where the husband and wife are brought
together and 'made to understand the
true situation ls a most beautiful and
touching one.

had a most wonderful success ln the
British Indies and Australia, the press
comparing him favorably with the
famous Clnquevalll. McCarty and Rey

comedians, are also new to Los Angeles
theatergoers. Their singing, dancing
and cross-walk exchange of Irish wit is
second to none' In their line. Emil and

"Ellen Terry," declares Annie Irish, "has
a very simple recipe for the retention of
youth and beauty. You must work till
tired, sleep till rested, have plenty of fresh
air, live in cool rooms, take a daily sponge
bath and eat the simplest food. It is this
regime that makes the leading woman of
the Lyceum theater so attractive."
