she became silent and reflective. A

Finally she said slowly, "I wish I a

"Three Twins," the attraction booked
for an engagement of one week begin
ning Jan. 26, at the popular Crescent,
is a clean, wholesome entertainment
abounding in humor, with two hearty
'aughs every minute or three hundred
during the one hundred and fifty min
utes of each performance. It is filled
xith many striking novelties, promi

"The Hypnotic Kiss," the awe inspiring
"Yama' Yama Man" and "The Myste

Briefly stated the story of the "Three
Twins" is founded on the confusion of
everyone as to the identity of three
lersons who look exactly alike. Two
of them are twin brothers, who have
I een lost to each other for years, and
the third is a person who decides to
impersonate a photograph of one of
them in order to win the consent of
his dyspeptic father to his marriage to
the girl of his choice. As none of the
twins-or the characters--know of the
existence of the three twins, Incon
gruous and ludicrous situations galore
are developed. But the plot is after
all, only a thread by which to connect
a series of beautiful gigantic stage ta
bleaux, gorgeous electrical displays and
unique stage novelties. Among them
may be mentioned "The Seven Ages of
Cuddling," the Electrical Swing. the
Faceograph, the D)irectoire Girls and(
the Yanma Yama, Chorus. led by the
charming dancer. Marie Sabbottt.

An engagement of unusual interest
,'ill be the presentation of A. Ii.
WVoods" star, Dustin Farnum, at the
Tulane theatre for one week beginning
Jan. 26, in "The Littlest Rebel." This
distinguished and popular player has
been fitted with a stirring vehicle by
iEdward Peple, author of "The Prince
Chap" and other successes.
"The Littlest Rebel" is a massive
presentment of incidents of the Civil
War. It is said to be intensely thrill
ing, although the cruelties and depriva
tions of war are used only as a back
ground to set in relief one of the ten
derest and most heart-touching stories
ever woven into a war drama. How
ever, a startlingly realistic picture of
a fierce passage at arms between the
Northern and Southern forces is pre
sented in the third act, a battle scene
which has come in for the most fiat
tering praise from the most distin
guished of military circles.
