Tutest Wrestling in History of

That Deadly Clamp.
Ad Santel turned the trick again,
winning a finish wrestling match from
Jess Westergaard at the Pinney the
atre Thursday night after hl« audience
was more than hulf convinced h<
couldn't do It. Fpr the former heavy
weight champftm started out by carry
ing the fight to Santel, pulling hire on
the defensive from the gong, and tak

minutes. .

In the first ten minutes than Hie aver

Westergaard caught Mantel's head in
a perfect Lewis headlock. and before
the spectators realized il had him j
pinned helpless for the full.

the battle waged fast and loiigli. Ad
customary tactics of h-ttlng the heavlei

dangerous this time, and he overlooked
no chances to apply Ids own best holds.
But Jess wouldn't let him do it. A

Thus the fortunes of battle wem for

what was coming If his speed or cau

jumped over his head to lasten the
scissors on his arm. Manfully Jess
squirmed and pulled until free, and
they were on their feet. A minute
later Santel seized him In his arms and
threw him bodily to the mat, this tlmo
securing the perfect, unbreakable arm
scissors. At 39 minutes Westergaard
was held with his shoulders on thci

In the third go. although for ten

Ollibee Leading Man, and Ar
line MoDonaugh Leading
Woman in "Get There,
Brown," a Mystery Comedy.
Quits a new Interest Is created In the
work of the Bmpress stock company
this week la "Get There, Brown," which
opened at the Empress Thursday
night for tbe week end, by the way the
members of the company have been as
signed. For instance, Ed CUsbee, one
of the comedy men, comes out In. "Get
There, Brown," as the leading man,
and Caroline Edwarde, the Empress'
regular leading woman, Is reduced lu
rank to the position of "Tidy," the maid
in a boarding house.
This change in the usual roles has
the effect of giving the work of the
company a desirable freshness, the
change stimulating the Interest of the
players as well as of the audience.
"Get There, Brown" was also & well
chosen vehicle for the talents of the
players. Us principal action is In the
parlor of a New York boarding house,
and quaint and odd are the characters
that move In and out of the boarding
house In the development of the ploL
There Is Mr. Mole, who has a
wretched, grouchy disposition and
never says a good word for anybody
until he gets a bun on and comes home
"seeing four of 'em." Lorlng Kelly, a
new member of the Empress company,
plays this part perfectly.
Then thero is Lidia Pope, played by
Rae Ewing, the girl who can never de
clde which fellow she likes best; Oliver
Dash, the would-be song composer who
Is forever tlnk-tinking on the boarding
house piano until he nearly drives
everybody crazy—to hear them tell It;
Tidy, Miss Edwards, who saves a
would-be suicide's life by forgetting to
put a quarter in the two-bit gas meter;
and Mrs. Twiggs, pluyed by Lula Ho
gan Wasley, the proprietress of the
boarding house.
Ed Cllsbee as Daniel Brown Is the
young fellow who "gets there," and
about whom the plot revolves. A
j friend, Robert Kimball, played by Billy
Maylon, disappointed In love comes on
the day of his success in working out
a dye formula, to the boarding house
' to die. He takes a tablet that makeH
i him sleep Ifi hours and turns on the
! gas, after giving Brown tbe priceless
formula to do with It as be will,
I Now John Kirkwood, a manufacturer,
\ portrayed by Fred Sullivan, startles
| Brown almost out of bis wits by offer
! lng him a Job at $60,000 per year. Why
j this unusual Incident takes place Is a
tantalizing mystery until toward the
end of the play.

The Duncan Dancere coming to the

our old earth, where feet and lives drag
weary weight
Isadora Duncan rediscovered those
laws of the Greeks, made visible to us
through their plastic arts of sculpture
and architecture. How much greater
should our harvest be, could we but
build on these living laws of supreme
harmony, tha beauty of the art which
these young girls unfold. If under
stood and put to use by our people,
It wculd weld us In body and spirit.
It Is the law 'from the center of our
universe toward the circumference.'
It le to the ballet what life Is to
death, what truth la to the Imitation.
To confuse the art of these dancers
with other dances, Is Ilk* moving the
marble gods of the Parthenon to
Broadway. Let ue accept as a truth
the living law of the beautiful, which
