George H. Broadhurst's VWhy Smith
Lett Home" will be seen at the Acad?
emy Tuesday (New Year's Day), mati?
nee and night. The story of the piece
brlelly told Is this: Smith and wife
are recently married, Smith has long
been a bachelor, and It Is .his desire
and that of his wife tha't they enjoy
their honeymoon In the quiet seclusion
of their own home, but their relatives
seem to seize ou the opportunity to
visit them from every nook and corner.
First conies Smith's sister,. then
Smith's wife's brother and his wife of
a, day, then her aunt and her husband,
the aunt coming with the express pur?
pose of getting the household started
right All this riles Smith, and to
make matters worse the servants are
new, and all members of unions, and
are determined to run the bouse to suit
their Ideas. The cook especially Is an
autocrat of the worst kind, but in her
Smith finds a friend and he i nters into
a compact with her to drive the visi?
tors away with vile cooking.
There are many complications. Smith
by mistake kisses one of the maids,
and Is caught In the act. Mrs. Smith
Introduces her brother to her husband
as an Italian singing-master, and later
embraces him jus't as her luisband en?
ters the room. All the mistakes are
finally cleared up In a masquerade
given by the servants In the evening,
wiien they had supposed the family
were to be at too theatre, but Smiih
learns that the masquerade is to take
place and returns home with the Inten?
tion of stopping It. His wife learns
of the affair .and attends the masque?
rade In costume In order to keep an eye
on her husband. Smith proves himself
O. Kv, nnd all ends happily. Seats
now selling. Prices, 25 to $1.(10; mati?
nee, 50 cents; children, 25 cents.
There may not be much In a name,
so far as the Individuals are concerned,
but as applied to plays tho title Is al?
most half the battle. Many a good play
has been a failure before it has ever
been prodbced, as a result of being
given a poor title. Next to writing a
good play the most difficult task for the
playwright is to select :t good title.
There are few men who are capable of
writing not only good plays, but of
naming them properly. In the long
list of bis many successes every title
selected by Mr. Charles Hoyt. has Wen
at once striking and BUggeeftlve^of
some definite idea. As 'in reading a
newspaper, one selects tne articles
having the most attractive headlines,
so a the11 re-goer buys a ticket for the
play whose title strikes his fancy. Take
for Instance "A Midnight Bell." The
title suggests so many humorous and
enjoyable situations that the reader of
advertisements In papers or on bill?
boards is on the way to the-.theatre be?
fore he has investigated furl tier. The
tile alone has convinced htm that the
entertainment is just what ho wants.
There are many new and up-to-date
features introduced In "A Midnight
Bell' this season, which comes to the
Academy of Music Wednesday night.
*-: -*
Miss Marion Convere, who has held
a prominent place in Soul hern society,
is shortly to adopt a theatrical career
and go on tour in "My Daughter-ln
Law," the comedy Which had such a
Buccesful run in New York at the Ly?
ceum Theatre last spring. She will
play the part originally acted by Ella
line Terrlss and afterward by Miss
Shannon. Miss Convere was born In
Charlotte, N. C. and is connected with
many distinguished families in the
South. Her father is Colonel Hamilton
Convere Jones, a prominent member
of the Bar of North Carolina, nnd at
one time IT. S. District Attorney for
North Carolina. Her grandfather,
Hamilton C. Jones, was a distinguish?
ed lawyer and wit in his day. Govern?
or Martin, the first Colonial Governor
of North Carolina, was one of her an?
cestors. Mr. Hoko Smith, who was
one of ex-President Cleveland's cabinet
is a relative. Miss Convere is a mem?
ber of tlie Wednesday Cotillons of the
Si Uth?rn society set in New York. She
has frequently played in amateur'the?
atricals, and last year made an experi?
ment In a professional way in one of
Charles Frohman's "The Little Minis?
ter" companies. Jn r.his she was so
successful that she has formally adopt?
ed the siage as a career, and will begin
a tour of the South about Christmas
time In the leading role in "My
Da lighter-in-Law."
Otis Skinner is constantly receiving
requests from admirers of Browning's
poems for repetitions of "Tn a Balco?
ny," In 'which he appeared with Mrs.
LeMoyne and Eleanor ltobson at Wal
lack's last October. Mrs. LcMoyne al?
so tjnds the same demand wherever
she plays. Consequently both stars
will close their regular season early, In
order to make a special spring tour I
with the Same production of Brown? I
lug's masterpiece which made such a 1
sensation In the literary and artistic
circles of New York.
Mrs. LeMoyne is winning a series of
triumphs on her flrat stollai tour of the j
South. Not* on'y 1? she playing to
lurge auiliences, btK. she seems to lm
press her powerful personality upon
every spectator. Says the Atlanta
Constitution: "Mrs. LeMoyne herself,
who takes the role of the mother, be?
longs to the school of 'Don't act?just
bo'. Hers Is the simplicity of natural?
ness, nnd at the same time the very
apotheosis of acting."
The charm of James O'Neill's per?
formance itv "Monte Crlsto" is seldom
in dispute, but what constitutes thai",
charm is often a matter for discus?
sions among 'the intelligent theaiire
goers. The best explanation seems to
be that the character of "Monte Cris
to" is the embodiment of all human
emotions,?love and hate, hope and re?
venge, faith and perfidy. The actor
who achieves success in the part must
be able to portray diametrically oppo?
site feelings and passions with equal
ftdetky and sincerity. He must be as
much a hater as a iover, a loyal friend
and an implacable foe, a Johu-a
ttreams, and a man of the world.
James O'Neill's phenomenal power to
express all these varying phases of hu?
man emotions is the key to his as?
tounding success in the part.

In booking Madam Modjeska's South?
