"Lichee" Is Her Inspir ation and Her Deep Joy "Lichee" is nothing more to his j mere acquaintances than a tiny bit !of striped cat which lays no partlci- I lar claims to either beauty or ex alted birth, but to Miss Beatrice Prentice, leading woman in "The Lure." now playing at the Cort. it is about the dearest thing in the world. Miss Prentice admits that she loves her furry pet just a trifle less than her work and that's saying a great deal. Because her theatrical suc cesses are a matter of common knowledge throughout a generous part of the United States. "I named him after a Chinese nut because he can be so charmingly < razy at times, withal so sweet.'' and the noted actress laughed as though she really meant what she said. Aw a matter of fact she says that •'Lichee" is the correct name of the bush upon which grow the nuts the Chinese vegetable man peddles about Anyway, the cat is Miss Prentice's hobby—a hobby that she is exceed ingly proud of. "My 'darling' has traveled about the world with me for more than a year." she said, delving into its past history. "It was born in <*anada and it was educated abroad. That shows what an accomplished little feline 'Lichee' i«. He is an American now. I know that, because he Is a perfect little gentle man. "How do I manage to carry him about with me?" "Well. 11l tell you. I have a big black alligator skin grip with small holes punched in the botton.. When I go to a hotel where I have reason to believe that an eagle eyed clerk might object to cats, I carry 'Lichee' in the bag. No one ever knows the difference, because he is too well trained to mew or cause a rumpus. No one would ever suspect that my grip contained livestock. "When on the train—and I am on trains a good part of my time —my iovey' shares my berth. 1 merely tie his leash to my wrist when I retire. "If anything frightens him I am warned by his frantic tugging. "Oh. yes. he keeps me in hot water lots of the time, but he is worth the trouble in the inspiration I get from him. He is so cheerful and merry that one can not help emulating his ex ample. Whenever T feel downcast or blue [ look at "Lichee" and forget my troubles right away." Miss Prentice is well known in San Francisco, where she last appeared with "Robert Edeson in "The Call of the North," which followed her en gagement with that noted actor in "Strongheart."
