TULANE THEATRE. William Ilodge will be seen at the Tulane Theatre next week in "The yan From Hiome," the play by Booth Tarkington and Harry Leon Wilson in which he has been "piling up" rec ord runs during the past five years, Few dramas in these days of rapid-fire producing stand the test of more than two or three seasons of popularity. But "The Man From Home" goes pla cidly along with no sign of lessening interest on the part of the public. It has been said of it that it possesses literary for(P: that it has a fine moral courteously pointed; that it is rich in humor and delightful in satire. What ever else it may he, it is American to the core and has a distinct measure of appeal to every American theatre goer. The central character in "The Man From Home" is an elongated Indiana lawyer. Kokomo is his home and Daniel Voorhees Pike his patronymic. He is a kindly, droll, shrewd and un assuming old bachelor ambling through life at a lazy gait, but not without a purpose. He has sense and character, understands human nature in whatever guise it may appear, res pects the best of it and lets the worst of it trouble him little. He is the guardian of two young people, Horace and Ethel Granger-Simpson, who have spent the greater number of their years abroad, where they have become saturated with the European idea and have grown ashamed of their own country. P'ke goes to Sorrento, Italy, the scene of the entire play, to pre vent the marriage of his ward to the hare-brained son of an English peer. There he becomes involved in a situa ties upon which the real action of the play hinges. William Hodge will again be seen in the role of Daniel Voorhees Pike, the Iadiana lawyer, who smashes into the history of Cressy and Agincourt. The mpporting company includes Oer trade Hitz, Leonora von Ottinger, Ida Vernon, Harold Russell, Charles Wel lesley, Echlin P. Gayer, J. J. Gardner, Anthony Ahaer, A. Montegriffe and eothers. "LET.RICH-QUICK WALLINGFORD." The tremendous vogue that has been attained by Geo. M. Cohan's comedy, "Get-Rich-Quick Wallingford, is a dis tinat compliment to the genius of that ilifc playwright whose pen has been successfully weilded many times in the past. Prototypes of Wallingford, the shrewd financial conspirator of the eomedy classic, are to be found in countless numbers, but to vitalize and visualize the type as the author has dune, to present him in a way that awakens the sympathy and compels the love of an audience which ,though ralising that he is no more nor less than a commercial buccaneer, are still Is accord with his get-rich-quick schemes, is a piece of stagecraft equal led by few playwrights of modern Get-Rich-Quick Wallingford" will e presented in this city at the Tu has for the week of Nov. 17th.
