TULANE. That fat men i .vl.vays funny on the stage has ben: demlonstrated anew bY Frank Mclnhle. the 300-pound gll-marker of "Th,. Traveling Sales. eras" fame, who ;i: be presented at the Tulane Theatr next week, begin ami Sunday night, as the star of ..sg," a satrircal farce by George .ronaon-Howard, which was the first yomedy hit on Bloadway this season and enjoyed long arid prosperous runs both in New York and Chicago. Mr. Mclntyre this time w'ill essay a some what different role from the one he played in "The Traveling Salesman," and instead of a drummer he will be seen as a milkman who is found to be a duke. If he is funny as the milkman he is three timens as funny when he done a suit which can be heard for blocks, and is taken to a smart coun try club to be introduce'd to society. The play runs for three riotuos acts showing respectivel, the milkman's bedroom. a country club. and a theatre, and is conceded to Ibe the funniest farce in years. Henry B. Harris. who is directing Mr. Nl, Intyre's tour. has surrounded his star with a splendid wgporting cast whih includes Myrtle Tannehill, Eva lb,. lonald. Katherine Stewart, Marie Fitzgerald. Orlando Daly, John Cumnb l.alnd and Roy Fair child. 'THE DIVINE SARAH" COMING TO THE TULANE IN LIFELIKE PICTURES. Following the engagement of Mr. Mc latyre at the fashionable Tulane Thea tre, Madame Bernhardt. "The Divine Sarab," will be seen at that playhouse or two weeks in perfect motion pic tures in her most artistic triumph, Du mas' emotional masterpiece, "Camille.' This will afford New Orleans playgoc en their first opportunity to see this celebrated actress in a photo-play. In the pictures Madame Bernhardt por trays the pathetic figure of Marguerite Gentler with wonderful realism, ex pilaing the story with such careful detail as to make it far more interest nlg to the average theatregoer than when the real Bernhardt spoke the lias in a foreign tongue at the Tulane a year ago. Whereas in the stage ver sloe only a few scenes are shown, thir ty or forty are to be seen in the pic tares and the story read more easily than from the printed page, with the added advantage of Madame Bern eart's surpassing art. In addition to T~halle." Madame Rejane, almost as well known to the theatregoing world i Madame Bernhardt. will be seen with photographic exactitude in " .a Am fleas Gene," Sardou's Napoleonic eady. The two plays together run * two and a half hours, showing a lmWustion of the acme of the stage plper sad Alm-maker's art.

The forthcoming visit of Forbes-Ro bertscn at the Dauphine next week in his new play, "The Passing of the Third Floor Back," which rau for sev en months in New York. and has been beating all records as a dramatic at !n fraction on the road, shows every like f lihood of sustaining his reputation a here It seems as though the greatest it agish.a-peakig actor on the stage to Fe day will play to capaelty houses. Both Y aster sad jilay are so wellkaown per. S ially and by reputatioe that It is unnecessary to remind playgoers of his epoch-making "Hamlet" and other creations. which his present medium is said to fully sustain the interest aroused by his magnetic personality. "The Passing of the Third Floor Back" might most applropriately be described as a modern mystery play. and the character that Forbes-Robertson repre sents has a divine significance which almost raises the everyday story into the reallms of a classic. and the regions of such a play as that only to be seen once in every ten years at Ober-Am mergan. There is nothing of tragedy in the play and the seriousness of the import and uplift is contrasted by many welcome scenes of pure comedy. "THE THIRD DEGREE" COMING.' "The Third i)egree," an excerpt from life in some of its most interesting phases, is perhaps the best description of this remarkable play by Charles Klein, who will be agreeably recalled as the author of the Anmerican drama, "The Lion and the 1ous.." The play in brief is a forceful and beautiful re lation of the adventures of a young man from the high paths of life who contra4cts an unconventional marriage. This subject has. of course. before been the subject of dramatic, literature, but the skillful and unusual treatment ac corded it in this instance by the mas ter playwright gives it all the attract iveness of originality and when there is added the entirely novel element of psychological interest. It may be said to be a complete departure in theatri cal presentations. The play. in four acts, has been given a most interesting ant lavish scenic production by the IUnited Play Company, whose efforts invariably bear the hall-marks of ar tistic work. The cast engaged is thor oughly consistent with the value of tae book and production and includes t;race. Lord, Elizabeth Gillespie. Ray mond Wells. Frank Patton. Charles T. Del Vechio. Edmond Sprague. Wm. Weston and others. "The Third De gree' will be seen at the Crescent for the week beginning March 31st. Bostonian Learns Something. The folly of Interfering with s newsboy was illustrated on Hanover street A well-dressed man took to task a newsboy who was crying a fake rxtra and read the riot act to him in fine style. The boy said noth ing. but when the man started to run for a North Station car he raised the cry of "Stop thief!" which was at once taken up by several of his com panions, and Id a moment an angry crowd was at the heels of the, luckless one, who was forced to take a trip to the station house before the matter was cleared up.-Boston Journal.

Dropping his paper, ha went to the door to welcome her with a kiss. "Well, what is Mrs. Bride doing out this Sunday morning without Mr. GO;oom?" he asked. jovially. "Oh, papa," she replied, "I've just come to tell you that George and I have found a perfectly lovely flat and we are going to housekeeping at once. I know you'll be awfully glad, for I've heard you say that you didn't believe in young people boarding. Now, aren't you delighted that we are going to have a little home of our own?" "Yes, indeed. Ethel." Leonard tried to throw Into his voice the amount of enthusiasm which appeared to be de manded. "Now, where's mother? I want to tell her, too. Oh, here you are, mam ma. Isn't it perfectly lovely that George and I have found an apart ment only two blocks from here In the Panama? By a week from today we'll be all moved in. It's the cun ningest little flat-not so very little seven rooms. It's going to furnish up beautifully. My mahogany bed will look lovely in our guest chamber." "What mahogany bed?" inquired Mrs. Leonard. "Why, the one I used to have before you put the brass one in my room for a surprise when I came home from school. Of course I'd rather have the brass bed in my own room, for I've always thought such a lot of it. And ,'m going to use my old rug in my room, too, even if it is a tiny bit !worn. Don't you think it's more sen sible than to buy some new thing that Is not really nearly so handsome? iGeorge and I are determined not to be extravagant." "Quite right, Ethel," agreed her hther. "Don't buy anything you don't have to." His wife looked at him, but he was so Intent upon lighting a cigar that he didn't respond to her questioning eye. "Now, I think, mamma," said Ethel, "in order to save you trouble I'll just tie a tiny bit of this red ribbon that I've brought on all my things, so when the expressman conies for them you won't have any uncertainty about which articles he is to take. Here's this darling little tea chair. Don't you remember when you bought it, mamma, I said I wanted it for mine?" "Yes, I remember," Mrs. Leonard said, smiling. "And, of course, the afternoon tea table goes with it. I'm going to serve tea every afternoon when I'm at home, and I want you to come and have some as often as you can. Very likely George and I will often go home with you to dinner afterward. Won't we have fun visiting back and forth? Papa. will you please tie this piece of ribbon around that Venetian glass vase on the mantel?" "Well," she remarked, descending a few minutes later, "I think I've mark ed nearly everything except the Dret den dessert set and the-" The Dresden dessert set?" inter rapted Mrs. Leonar4. 'Yes, mamma; don't yea know I ask ed you for those dishes when I was a little bit of a thing and I've always looked forward to having them in my own home? But of course, if you have any objection-" "Oh, no, Ethel,- you may have them." "As for the piano, papa, do youea tMhink it ought to be tuned before or after it is sent over?" "I hadn't malised that it was to be moved." "No, I suppose not. Haven't I erown up and married quickly? It doesn't seem long slnce yaou bought it for me to practice on, doe it?
