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

Theatre, commencing Sunday night.
The action of the play starts in the
railroad depot at Grand Crossing just
before noon on Christmas Day. The

Impertinent baggageman; the gossipy
widow, and the pretty ticket agent.
Beth Elliott, and the irrepressible

Fhe acquaintance of Bob Blake and
Beth Elliott ripens rapidly and Beth
avites the salesman to share her
neagre Christmas lunch. After that
heir friendship is sealed.
Beth is the owner of a worthless
section of land which is to be sold for

to play, "The Two Orphans." In re- Hall, on the rst Saturday ;n October
ponse to the largest number of ra at the hour of 9:0 a. a. It will be
ersts for any show, Mr. Perualc, ac- under the supervision of Mrs. A. La
ormiaager of the Perachl4Gypsene Grose, and assistant, Miss Sadie Ve
Itok Coimpay, will play it nest week sla. tt
commencing with a matinee Sunday.
There are seven acts to the com
plete production and every one of them
will be given. The scenery and ef
fects will be faithfully presented.
There are thousands of playgoers both
old and young who would rather see
"The Two Orphans" than any other
play. Mr. Peruchi desires to assure
all the patrons that the story will be
given in its entirety and the staging
will be up to the standard he has set
high, early in the season.
It is not necessary at this time to
dwell on the plot that centers around
two girls who come to Paris alone;
one of them is blind. She is beautiful
and sings well. An old hag and her
villain son determine to make use of
her talents to fill their coffers. The
other sister loses the unfortunate one
and the author keeps up the interest
until the final curtain.
Every member of the excellent com
pany will be cast to advantage and the
presentation will doubtless set the
pace for attendance during the sea
son.
There are three more nights and
two matinees in which to see the stir
ring comedy drama "Checkers." It
brings back the memory of racing
days and there are many of the fa
miliar characters to be seen in the
play.
One of the company that deserves
special mention is the very popular
soubrette and ingenue leading lady,
Mfable Gypzene, who is portraying an
intensely amusing Sis Hopkins char
acter extremely well.
Seats are now on sale for "The Two
Orphans" and it will be a show well
worth seeing. There will be a great
demand and reservations should be
made early.
