Charles Baker and George Lrs-1

Irene Langford. (or two seasons with
the Oborn Opera company, will be
heard in vocal selections, both popular
and classic. Connie Maker, a (lain-:
ty soubrctte. has some songs 'hat she
renders in a charming manner. The |
most popular of the songs used the
first two days are "How Would You j
Like to Have a Baby Like Me?" and j
"Give Mo All of You." Mr. Ilenricl,
has secured the services of C. J, Pre? |

Prescott who hns had considerable experience,
being more recently connected
with the Pixie in the down river
town, airived yesterday, and Is ready
for the rehearsal before matinee. See

Hoadliner in Many Successes.
Richard Carle, star in "Furs and!
Frills" at the Grand Opera House i
Wednesday night, is not a new-comer
by any mauuer ot means. It takes bu*
a moment's study to remember that;
Carle was connected with 'The Isle
ot Champagne," ' The Mayor of Toklo"
and "The Cohan Revue." The
present production is as strong a musical
comedy as either ot the others
named, and is fully eligible to be listed
in his successes . Silvio Heln and
Claude E. Mac-Arthur are responsible
to rthe books, lyrics and music scores,
and they have done their work well,
tot the book is notable for its spon-1
taneous laugh Interest, the lyrics are 1
well turned and the music is tuneful !
and unforgetable. The east Is thor- {
ought) representative, and affords ex-1
cedent support. Of course, no must- j
cat comedy is complete without a
beauty chorus, and the Carle chorus j
contains only those < harming In face '
and form. Extragsut costumes and
scenic effects are fully provided for j
that the eye may be pleased as well
as the ear.

Charlie Chaplin at the Dixie.
What more need we say? Charlie
saver appealed to us, but he has probably
made more people laugh than any
other screen comedian on the reel today,
and that is sufficient. The tworeel
feature he is seen in tonight is entitled
"The Tramp" and we guess
from the title there will he plenty to
laugh at. The Vitagraph feature is
