MISS EVA TAYLOR AT THE ORPHEUM ■r*- f\ >|fl9B| >JH FAMILY PARTNERSHIP SCORES ON STAGE Husband Writes the Plays and Wife Stars—New Sketch by Eva Taylor and Lawrence Grattan Is Due If you want to be the real money maker in vaudeville, be a star, let your husband write your sketches and util ize him as your leading man. Thus you keep royalties and salaries right in the family, get a vehicle admirably suited to your talents, and have a new one any old time your husband has a good Idea. That is the system pursued by Eva Taylor, now at the Orpheum. Her husband is Lawrence Grattan, a ster ling player find a skilled writer. Last season he was his wife's leading man in the Frohman farce, "Chums," which they played in vaudeville. But Miss Taylor likes to have at least one new play a year, and bo, when "Chums" was shelved, she and her husband con ferred over this year's necessities. "Mrs. Jones-Smith-Carey" was the first playlet from Mr. Grattan's pen, and Los Angeles Is seeing It this week. "Preamona," the second, will be pre sented next week. As It has been played over the circuit elsewhere al ready, while "Mrs. Jones-Smlth-Carey" was giving its premiere only a month ago. But the latter has proved even a greater laughing hit than "Dream ona" and Mis* Taylor generally gives It first in a city. "King Dodo," the first attraction on the John Cort list to cdme to Los An geles this season, will open a week's engagement at the Majestic thi Sunday night, the seat sale opening this morning. Eleanor Kent, primp, donna with the Edgar Temple opera, company at the Auditorium two years ago; Zoe Barnett, a Los Angeles girl whose first stage experience was with the old Casino company in this city, and William Friend are cast In the principal roles-.

Mr. Eyton agreeing to develop the Nordstrom muscle sufficiently to enable the actress to do her "Curfew-shall not-rlng-toritght" stunt in "The Heart of Maryland" next week with confi dence and impunity. Owing 1 to the popular success achieved by the Relkin Yiddish players at the Mason, their engagement has extended two nights, Thursday and Friday, when they will be seen respectively in the Jewish "Hamlet" and the Jewish "King Lear." This, or ganization Is considered the best of its kind that has ever appeared in this city and the Jewish population has re sponded enthusiastically In its at tendance.

Granier Discourses on "Love" Before Kaiser Wilhelm and Calls Down Censure of Press BERLIN*. Jan. s.—Several incidents have combined to bring the Emperor William and his theory of government once more into genera! public discus sion in this country. The first is a let ter written in 1594 by Gen. yon Stosch to Rudolf yon Bennigsen and pub lished in the biography of the Liberal leader, which is tn process of publica tion. It contains the following pas- sage: The emperor said to one of his con fidants: "Caprivi i.s easy to get on with, but lie does not appeal to me. The man is lacking in imagination. He does not understand me when I open out to him new ideas. I shall take as his successor a younger man, who is personally more known to me and has no kind of reservations to ward me as the result of his past. He shall bo my man, and nothing else." Another matter which has come in fur a good deal of discussion arose out of the municipal elections at Kattu witz. where several school teachers and postmen were reduced for having vot ed for the Polish candidates. During the emperor's visit to Naudeck his host, Prince Donnersmarck, sent for the official who had been responsible for this measure and his majesty pre senter! him with his own photograph, beneath which was written "Nemo me impunii! laceesit." Finally an Interview with Madame Jeanne Granier, published in the Paris Gil Bias, has caused grave, not to say n verend head-shakings. The portion of the entertainment provided by this lady for the pleasure of the emperor at Prince Donnercmarck's Bchloss was what the French call a "conference" — that is to say. a witty, Impromptu monologue. Madame Granier was al low od to select her own theme. She chose "Love," and treated it in a spirit that is "much more common where the climate is sultry" than in the bard, cold air of Prussia. The <'hauvlnistie and Pan-Germanic. Rholnisch Westfalische Zeitung now prints an open letter from certain worthy burgers of Essen remonstrat ing with Prince Donnorsmarck for of fering his imperial guest an entertain ment of this kind. WILLIAM BUTTINSKY BREAKS INTO JAIL He Upsets Beer Kegs and Ash Bar. rels, Smashes Boxes, Scares Women Until Arrested NEW YORK, Jan. '>.— A queer-look ing prisoner with long white chin whig ken and in. wed bead was dragged into the Liberty avenue police station iii East New York. "Name?" Inquired the lieutenant, who was bent over hli ledger and did nut look up. "WllUam Buttlnsky," some one in the station housi answered. "i tolor?" ••Whif." Just then there was a .shuffling and the lieutenant looked up to see every ! one scatter. In the center of the room stood a goat, apparently undeddi d to what it would do next. "Where did you set htm?" demanded the lieutenant. Detective Isaac Mc- Loughlin cautiously stepped forward and explained. He had been approached by two frightened women, who rushed up to him and declared a ferocious animal was loose on Pitkin avenue. MeLough lin found a group of boys rolling sev erul empty beer kegs on the corner of that thoroughfare. They said a soat had turned them over, lingered awhile, and gone on its way. The detective took up the trail which led along Pitkin avenue and woutl'l from one side of the street to tin other. Ash barrels had been upset and boxes broken into bits. One store keeper said he had seen something waltzing with a hitching post. Four blocks from the starting point MeLoughlin saw a fat man suddenly throw his hands in the air and io a Steve Hrodie act on the pavement. Close behind him was the goat waiting for the fat man to get on his feet again. MeLoughlin pounced on his as sailant and with the help of other de tectives led lits captive to the station house. There a charge of disorderly cor.duci was made against him. There also was a suspicion that he had sampled the dregs of the beer-kegs. Bill was lodged In an adjoining stable, and the policemen were instructed to find out whose goat they had. Mrs. —However did she get her husband to trim the Christmas tree?

MIXUP CAUSED BY DRESS SUIT SHIFTS COAT WITH MANAGER OF THEATER Pockets of Western Man's Garment Contained Big Roll of Money, Draft for $lODO and Se. curities of Value MBW Y( IRK, .Tan. 5.

Blandlck," In which the sender asked that three good or > i ]:<- re - served in his name for Monday night's Mon lay evening at S a young man of substantial appearance stepped up to the box office. He was sunburned and wore a well-fitting suit of blue Berge. "My name is Blandick, Judson 8., he said, "and I'd like those three seata i reserved by telegraph. I alßo took the liberty to send on my dress suit , which 1 see you have over there by your safe." Ji ,1 F. Shaw, the theater's treasurer, laid out the seats and inquired it' Mr. iek could identify the c tae, 'I've pot the key to it," he replied, "and 1 can tell yoii that my dress suit, shirts, ties and gloves are inside. I'm a mining man from Butte, and I un derstand that you have to wear full Ing dress to get in here. J'lease direct me to the nearest hotel, where I may make the change.'' Mr. Shaw called Mr. Blandick's at tention to the fact that evening dress is never required at the Now theater, and added the nearest hotel was some blocks away. The latter fact seemed to distress Mr. Blandick. ■ His fiancee and her mother from Boston were to meet him in the lobby at S:2O, he said, and he simply had to dress, whether or not ■ m required it. "They will cer tainly come in elaborate toilets, and I havo just got to get into my dress suit," he declared. Mr. Shaw called a page and Mr. Blandick was taken to the office of Manager K. E. Lyons, where the change was quickly made. Then Mr. Blandick hastened to the lobby, just In time to meet his fiancee and her mother as they stepped from a taxlcab. Both were in traveling dress, and they expressed surprise at Mr. Blandick's attire. "Why. Judson!" exclaimed the older of the two women, "we had no idea you would be dressed, knowing your train didn't get in until 7:30, so we came just as we were. I'm afraid we'll have to go back to the hotel." "Not at all," replied Mr. Blandlck. "I've got a sort of private boudoir right here in the theater, and it won't take me a minute to shift back again." Once more, guided by the page, Mr. Blandlck darted to the business office, where he shifted in record time, and it was not until after the party had been seated that Mr. Lyons discovered that the westerner had inadvertently ex changed coats with him. An inventory of the pockets disclosed J2",7 In cash, a Xew York draft for $1000 and a bundle of private papers. Everything Explained After the performance Mr. Blandlck was found in the coat room, where he had finally sent his dress suit case, and matters were explained to him. L'p to that time he hadn't noticed the change, as the coats were of the same 00!,,r, size and material. "Well, T guess I'll get straightened around after a while," he laughed, as he shifted once more, this time to his own outer garment. "Bui your found ers would save us strangers a mighty night of tmulile if they would publish far and wide the fact that dress clothes i^re not required here. Why, not half of the audience have 'em on, and I don't mind saying I'm mighty well pleased, for I'm coming back next week, and after five years in the mines I don't cotton over much to a boiled shirt." ODD SALUTES ARE USED IN NATIONS OF EARTH Some Kiss in Salutation, Others Rub Noses and Some Put Srir>d on Their Heads LONDON, Jan. s.—ln foreign coun tries the ceremonies and customs ob servable at meeting and parting 1 are frequently of a very solemn and formal character and arc enforced with the strictest rigor by the superior in rank on tin c beneath them.

That is the question all the Manayunk district is asking after the opening recently of a 5 and 10 cent store on Main street. The reason? They ■a re selling "wedding rings" at 10 cents each und every . girl in sight bought one and put it on her finger. Of course it was all a Joke, but the average male citizen is sorely puzzled between the true ring of matrimony and the fake ring of the new Jest.
