Ht LOOK WORLD EX FACE AGAIN
"I expect to look the world in the
face again." he said, "and* I hope an
honorable career may still be open to
me after my return to my former home.
If it is possible, T shall repay all the
losses that individuals have suffered.
No permanent removal of other peo
ple's funds was ever intended. I ex
pected t<> pull off these big deals and
tame near doing It.
My assets were turned over and if
they bad been handled by one large
mind, nobody would have lost a cent.
Fifty-two lawyer?, representing many
dienta, have made loss inevitable.
"I am penniless. I have done all T
roald to make reparation and I have
refused to make a technical defense.

"My fault was a fault of oppor
tunity. No man should be given un

church of Palo Alto, and his wife, who
stood faithfully by him In his troubte.

SARAH WONDERFUL
IN RAGS AS SILKS
Bernhardt Loses None of
Her Majesty in Role of
French Vivandiere
Audience Does Not Miss
Point of Visual Splendor
of Artist's Acting
WALTER ANTHONY
Sarah Bernhardt, resplendent on Sun
day night in the costume of Lucrezla
Borgia of the fifteenth century, ap
peared last night In the tatters of a
vi\andlere following the revolutionary
army that Victor Hugo wrote about in
his immortal novel, "Ninety-three."
The play in which the wonderful
Sarah appeared was not written, how
ever, by her author of Sunday night. It
| was not Victor Hugo who supplied her
with her plot, but her son, Maurice, and
Henri Cain, who together have written
a story nearly as stirring as that in
which Hugo placed his hero of "La Ven
dee." And Bernhardt, in the rags of the
revolutionary zealot, was just as ma
jestic* as she was in the silks of the
Borgia woman.
NOTICES PATRICIAN MANNER
She sits on the table of the hut on the
i Vandean farm and peels potatoes. Be
side her sits the countess, and the little
daughter of nobility sleeps on an un
kempt couch. Bernhardt is Marion, the
vivandlere. There Is a price upon the
head of the count, who is of the no
bility and, therefore, an enemy to
France—at least that is the way the
revolutionists felt about it.
As the countess, disguised In peas
ant's garb, sits beside the merry girl of
the regiment, the latter notices the
patrician manner in which the countess
performs the work of peeling potatoes.
It is a very natural and simple scene,
hut Bernhardt employs the rarest art in
its unfoldment. She points her finger at
the aristocratic hand of the countess,
and her little rebel sdul is affronted at
the waste of the potato in the countess"
hard. More potato than peeling go into
the basket at their feet. Then the se
cret of the countess' identity is re
vealed, and the count himself enters
i the hut.
The audience was on the point of
cheers last night when Marlon, the
vivandiere, defended the nobleman and
his little family and pleaded for their
lives at the hands of her compatriots,
who had found them there. There was
magnificence of gesture, authoritative
voice and an imperious demeanor which
might not have been within the power
of a Marion to command, but which are
still the glory of Bernhardt? art.
The actress even makes h**r weak
nesses a part of her acting strength. It
is a wonderful lesson in the art of act
ing to watch how she makes the means
of her support contribute to the pic
ture. As she stands facing the blood
thirsty revolutionists, who hate a noble
man merely because he is noble, she
leans her hand upon a nearby chair.
But she forces the inanimate accessory
into relation with the s<*ene by striking
It for emphasis, clutching it for effect
and leaning upon It as though her emo
tions as Marion and not her age as
Bernhardt required the support.
DOXE WITH NATURALNESS
It Is all done with as remarkable
ease and naturalness as Tellegen him
self, who, as the count, holds on to his
little daughter as the vivandiere pleads
for their lives,
The audience was large and enthusi
astic. It Is worthy of record that no
body seemed to miss a point of the
visual splendor of the artist's acting,
and that Miss Josle Heather, who fol
lowed Sarah Bernhardt on Monday
night, was given an easier place on the
program. The act to follow "the Sarah"
last night wan provided by Dorothy
Brenner and Jo&ph Ratliffe. One of the
tragedies of vaudeville Is that somebody
has to follow Bernhardt.
