He has brought out a human play, entirely plausible, with real flesh and blood men and women as the characters. The strength of the play lies in its very possibility. All the scenes take place on a modern train, Pullman cars of the latest types being shown. The berths are made up, and the verisimilitude is carried to such an extent that the audience practically travels with the players. It can be seen .then, why the farce has been dubbed a "Pullman Carni val" in three sections. Mr. Savage, who has earned the reputation of nev er doing things by halves, has given the nlay a production that makes it rank as noteworthy example of real and the two jump into the fray for all the spoils there is in it. Of course. they do not succeed in getting any real money but they do get into trou ble: Mutt is made President and car ries his honors with the dignity be fitting his reputation. Jeff is made his "cabjet," whatever that may be. and the two are free from strife and an noyance until their imposition is dis covered. One can imagine the com plications that follow. In the end ev erything is righted and Jeff and Mutt return to civilization where they re new their adventures. Laughs are abundant throughout, the situations are funny and the action is spirited enough to keep everybody in exceed ingly good humor. The music, which has been specially composed for the piece, is said to be catchy and tuneful. There are four teen numbers. The scenic investi ture is first-class and the other effects commensurate with the policy of Mr. Hill. Matinees will be given Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. ism. The motion of the train is shown, the whistles and bells are heard, the noise of the air-bralfes is apparent, and altogether the sensation is of being on a fast-flying modern train. There is a plot and a counterplot. A young army officer, who must catch a transport in San Francisco on a cer tain date to go to the Philippines, can not bear the idea of leaving the girl he loves for his three years' term of service, and persuades her to elope with him at the last moment. Time does rot allow for a marriage service, and they take chanct.s of finding a minister aboard the train, to perform the ceremony. The amusing compli cations are many ,and serve to pro vide an evening of unbounded merri ment. MUTT AND JEFF-CRESCENT. WEEK OF NOV. 26. ORPHEUM THEATER.

Wilson's rich clear voice is like wine-it improves with age. His songs always seem sweeter than ever, and it is safe to guess that when he presents "A Ger man Prince" there will be a great de mand for "Her Smile," one of the new songs written and composed by Mr. Wilson, especially for this production. Manager Sidney R. Ellis is credited with having provided a strong support ing company, and this fact alone should be enough to assure a fine per formance without mentioning the many innovations that have been made in the play.

Wilson, the German dialect come dian coes to 'the anphine Theatre next week.
