THE PENSACOLA JOURNAL. SUNDAY MORNING. APRIL 9. 1911.
1 . IS' . . ' f7 AMUSEMENTS. j i The Cobum Players. ; At iV-e San Carlos hotel yesterday afternoon one of the visiting lady tour ists remarked to a prominent citizen that throughout the entire theatrical season Pensacola ha had no attrac tion that should prove of more Interest to Pensacollans than the coming &p pearance of the Coburn Flayers. Said she: "I have seen them play 'As Tou like If and Twelfth Night and I can remember of nothing more aeugntrui than witnessing their appearance at the Field Club at Englewood ,N. J, the past summer." With the Cobttrns "the play's the thing" In reality, and scorning the limi tations imposed by the theatre, they give ail their productions out of doors where the scenic artist is Nature her self, where the "drops" are trees that really grow, the arras .actual shrub bery, and the stage, the grass. The plays that this company presents are not those which depend for effect upon tricks of lightning, or elaborate stage pictures, and, indeed, it is when these are absent, and one may lose oneself In the charm of the poetic thought of a Shakespearean comedy, for instance, that its appeal is felt most potently. It Is not hard to Imagine that one Is 3n the forest of Arden when Orlando may attach his love missives to the living tree3, and Rosalind approach one, not from somewhere "up stage" but through the snapping bushes. And, In such circumstances, it Is not. dlffl cult to translate oneself and to be ritatw of the merry company In the courtyard of Illyrla with Sir Tobey. Sir Andrew and Maria as they wajce ine night with their unseemly revels, or hide among the bushes to watch the strutting, cross-gartered Malvollo. Not the least exquisite incidents in Shakespearean comedy are the Inci dental songs. Mr. Coburn has suc ceeded after a great deal of research in rttaJninar music for these that seems authentic and truly Elizabethan. There is no orchestra with tne players es there wasn't when the plays had their Tjremlers at the old Globe Theatre but the music Is sung by a Quartet of men a voices. .The men are hidden WOT in the shrubbery somewhere, and the raising and falling of the quaint, appealing old tunes on the night air lends much to the sylvan atmosphere xt the productions. The performance win be given on the old Baars homestead, LaRuv Snrine -and Baylen streets. "Wednesday evening. April 26th. Sale of seats at Johnson's Book Store opens April 17. Reservations can be made according to subscription plan. How the Three Twins" Faeeograph is Worked. The thousands of theatre-goers en joy the production of the musical comedy "Three Twins", have always been greatly interested in the mechan ican contrivance called the "Faceo- graph", which has always proven one of the most novel features of the show. Now that "Three Twins" is headed this way and will be at the opera house April 12, Interest tn the Faeeograph. is aroused and an expla nation -of how it is worked should prove readable. By means of a com' plicated system of lights and mirrors, the features of one .of the prettiest 'chorus girls are reflected on a roar "drop," vastly enlarged and with two tints of her complexion exactly repro duced. On the sheet the girl is seen to smile, pout, or roll her eyes, her lips moving with the words of the song. "The Girl up There". The cho rus girl In question has to insert her head up side down within a small compartment, wherein are powerful reflectors. The electrical power of 150 amperes is required for the Faceo graph, equal to the light force of tlyee hundred sixteen candle power lamps. "There Twins" la one of the most popular musical comedy hits ever seen here and will be produced on a mag nificent scale. Victor Morley and Bessie Clifford head the organization. Bessie Clifford has been closely Identified -with the character of the Tama Tama Girl ever since it inception. If she done nothing else in the piece, her singing and dancing this one number would win her lasting fame. Afma, Whare Do You Uvr "Alma, Where Do Ton Live?" with Its Parisian flavor, its highly amusing situation and its many sparkling mus ical members la still doing a remark able business at Joe Weber's Theatre, Broadway and 33th street. New York. No more pleasing musical comedy has been presented to a New York au dience than this French vaudeville. There is not a dull moment during the entire performance of this bright comedy, but two and a half hours of solid merriment and laughter. There Is scarcely a ball room or restaurant In New York that one does not hear the delightful Alma score played. It is the first music since "The Merry Widow" to catch and hold the public fancy. The amusing little play with Its sparkling music, funny situations and witty dialogue is the greatest musical comedy seen in New York In years. Every song in "Alma, Where Do Yon Live?" is a decided hit and Jean Bri quet's music continues to be the most tuneful heard in New York. The ex cellent cast which Mr. Weber has given Alma does fun justice to the exquisite melodies. Every one of the fourteen song hits are repeatedly en cored at every performance. The story is of Intense interest and George V. Hobart in his English ver sion has greatly improved upon the eriginal of Paul Herve interjecting much native American humor and eliminating all of the unpleasant Gall icims. All of the sparkling musio of Jean Briquet has been retained and Mr. Hobart's fourteen Lyrics are laughable and clever in the extreraa. "Alma, Where Do You Live?" will p:ay this city next season. Mr. Weber will send here with a carload of scen ery and the entire production will be the same as now playing at his popu lar Broadway Theatre. The Mulligan Guards." "The Mulligan Guards." about thirty-five strong, all attended the regular matinee of William Collier in Til Be Hanged If I Do" at William Collier's ComedyTheatre last Tuesday afternoon.

Mr. Collier himself, and occupied all the boxes, appropriately draped with Irish flag. "The Mulligan Guards" have now been in existence only a short time. A few days ago some members of the Lambs' Club conceived the idea of having a special dinner for all the Lambs of Irish birth or Irish descent! It was at this dinner that the new association was formed, with Glen MacDonough, the librettist of "The Hen-Fecks" and many other produc tions, as President; William Collier as Vice-President; Fritz Williams as Treasurer: Frank Byrne as Secretary, and Frank Maclntyre in the original but indispensable office of "Quorum," without whose presence no dinner can be given. William Harrigan, the son of Edward Harrigan, was present at the dinner and sang a number of the songs which his father made famous, including "The Mulligan Guards," which was forthwith 'adopted as the name of the organization. To belong to The Mulligan Guards" you must be a Lamb, and also have real Irish blood in your veins. There are no dues, except the subscriptions for dinners, which' will be the greenest affairs in all history. In addition to being Vice-President of "The Mulligan Guards." Mr. Collier enjoys the dis tinction of having a larger percentage of Irishmen in his company than are known to be In any, other theatrical organization. The Mulligan Guards" formed in regular marching line and paraded down Broadway to Forty-first street, thence across Forty-first street to the Comedy Theatre.

Eight, nine and ten recalls greeted Mme. Bertha Kalich after the acts in which occur the greatest emotional scenes of Langdon Mitchell's "The Kreutzer Sonata" at the Teck Theatre last night That tells the story of her triumph, despite the fact that she has appeared In Buffalo In the same play for ' two former engagements, says the Buffalo Times. The role of Miriam Frienfilander calls upon Mme. Kalich to delineate the very soul of a woman. She does it wlth such consummate art, perfect controC marvelous intensity and intel ligent interpretation that her audience sat in awed silence. Frankly, the story la not a nice one to dwell upon, even COFFEE HEART. . Very Plain In Some People. great many people go on suffering from annoying ailments for a long time before they can get their own consent" to give up the indulgence from which their trouble arises. gentleman in Brooklyn describes his experience, as follows: became satisfied some months ago that' I owed the palpitation of the heart from which I suffered almost dally, to the use of coffee, (I had been a coffee drinker for 80 years) but I found It very, hard to give up the beverage. "One day I ran across a very sensi ble and straightforward presentation of the claims of Postum. and was. so impressed thereby that I concluded to give it a trial. "My experience with it was unsat isfactory tin X learned how It ought to be prepared by thorough bolSng for not less ihan IS or 20 minutes. After I learned that lesson there was no trouble. "Postum proved to be a most palat able and satisfactory hot beverage, and I have used it ever since. "The effect on my health has been most . salutary. The heart palpitation from which I used to suffer so much, particularly after breakfast, has dis appeared and I never have a return ot it except when I dine or lunch away from home and drink the old kind of coffee because Postum is not served. I find that Postum cheers and lnvlg orates while it produces no harmful stimulation." Name given by Postum Co, Battle Creek, Mich. Ten days trial proves an eye opener to many. Beadthe little book. The Road to Wellville,- in pkgs. There's a Rea son." Ever read the above letter? A new one appears from time to time. They are genuine, true, and full of human interest. when one looks back upon the mag nificent acting of the principals and the subtle manner in which delicate topics and situations are handled. Its frankness Is apt to startle, but modern playgoers have become so hardened that the shocking depravity portrayed loses its sting noon conscience which have been dulled by a flood of other plays in which vlclousnees lacks the cloak of art Mme.- Kalich possesses a voice that is one of the, seven wonders of stag land. Its velvety sweetness rivals the muted melody of a Stradlvarrus. In a grief it expresses the hopelessness of a soul bending beneath sorrow unut terable. Even the Jewish hymn in the third act, chanted with all Its doleful rythm, falls to show the depth of Its limitations. Excellent support Is given Mme. Kalich by most of the company. "Nothing is so bad that it couldnt be worse," quoted the Wise Ouy."Yes," agree the Simple Mug. "we can't suffer from Insomnia and nightmare at the same time." Philadelphia Record. J. M. Howell, a popular druggist ot Greensbtirg, Ky says: "We use Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in our own household and know It is excel lent." For sale by all druggists. i i . - ...
