When the head of the greatest syn dicate on earth proclaims "Mutt and Jeff' the financial success of the cur rent season, it would seem that no further evidence of merit was neces sary. Such an expression carries weight and it goes without saying that artistic success must have preceded financial success.

Four companies of forty-five people each are now playing the four corners of the United States. Capacity business is an assured fact before the show reach es town.' It may easily be inferred from this that the play is more than making good. Gus Hill has made an elaborate production, so firm was his belief in the ultimate success of th, play that he expended a fabulous sum of money in fitting out four companies before a dollar was in sight. Mr. Hill's judgment was unePing in this as IL has been in his former successes. "Mutt and Jeff," with their fellow con spirators, singers, dancers, will arrive in New Orleans on Sunday, November 17th, and will appear at the Crescent for an engagement of one week. AL WILSON COMING TO THE CRESCENT. "It is to laugh," is the keynote of "It Happened in Potsdam." the new com edy with songs from the French of Maelvic by Cyril Reed, which Al. H. Wilson, the German dialect comedian, will present at the Crescent Theatre, week of November 24th. Like J. K. Emmett, the famous German comedian of bygone days, Mr. Wilson's conquest of an audience is aided and accentuat ed this season through an uncommonly bright and laugh-provoking comedy which is said to surpass any of his f I. I ~~ a'A ll m in r previous offerings, As the blonde young German with the gutteral R's rolling from his tongue, Mr. Wilson is probably seen at his best in his pres ent character of Metz von Klatz, an bccentric German of roving disposition compelled by .the provisions of a wealthy uncle's will to secure a wife before he can claim his inheritance. Owing to his peculiar ideas and eccen tril habits the young ladies of his ac quaintance refuse to consider him se riously, ad he Is led a merry chase bkr he aimly masts his at e la the - - . iperson of an American girl, from Vir ginia.

Cohan's play, "Get-Rich-Qulck Wal lingford." In the first act the audi ence is given a view of the interior of the principal hotel in Battlesburg, where a young newspaper reporter is railing against the deadly dullness of the town and his Inability to wake it up. Upon this scene dawns J. Rufus Wallingford, the get-rich-quick sharp, and the whole atmosphere of the place takes on an activity that is epidemic.

It is "The Pink Lady," the International musical comedy de luxe, which Klaw & Er langer are sending on tour after its phenomenal runs of a year at the New Amsterdam Theatre, New York City, and at the Globe Theatre, London, where it broke every record known in the way of receipts and public appre ciation for a good thing. 'Everybody has dined and danced to the music of this delightful presentation, but such numbers as are familiar are only a very small part of what is by all odds the neatest and prettiest musical of fering ever made upon the American stage. it is filled with delightful Inci dents and appealing selections and all are woven into a whole which, for ef fectiveness, charm and humor, cannot be possibly excelled. C. M. S. Mc Lellan wrote the book and lyrics after an adaptation of the French farce "Le Satyre" and Ivan Caryll composed the music, making the same an actual part of the story and adding to its effect iveness to that extent. A company of 100 people will interpret the work in cluding carefully selected principals, the "pink of perfection" chorus, and the celebratei Pink Lady orchestra that travels with the company in or der that every detail of the score will be fully brought out at the engagement at the Tulane. Klaw & Erlanger are famous for their productions, but they have never done anything to equal this latest pre sentation from their resourceful head quarters, which has many times been likened unto a veritable Aladdin-like panoranda of costume, scenic and elec tric elegance, that brilliants with a lavishness that has seldom, if ever, been equalled in American theatricals.
