There are many kinds of hoodoos.
but Billy B. Van says that he has found
the best kind in his "A Lucky Hoo
doo." in which he will appear with the
Beaumont Sisters in his big company
at the Crescent Theatre all next week,
commencing Sunday night. "A Lucky
I loodoo," it is declared, is not only the
very latest word in hoodoos, but in
musical comedy as well. It is said to
te bubbling with new ideas and orig
inal touches of humor. There is a
captivating beauty chorus and a score
of jingling musical numbers. "A
Lucky Hoodoo' tells the story of a
property man of a vaudeville theatre,
Steve Gall, an original character by
Mr. Van, who is discharged after a
series of mishaps on the stage, and
then gets a new job as office boy in a
fortune telling parlor. Mr. Van will
sing his original 'Props" song and
"The Um Pum Man," both of which
gained much applause during the past
season. During the performance the
new song hit, "Lovey Lane," will be
"DON'T LIE TO YOUR WIFE" COM
ING TO THE CRESCENT.
Rowland and Clifford present Dave
Lewis next week, March 9th, at the
Crescent Theatre in the riot of laugh
ter, "Don't Lie to Your Wife." All the
incidents of this farce bear on latter
day happenings and the complications
of a married man being caught in the
midst of a party of chorus girls dur
ing a party of gaiety by his wife is
about all the humor a person can
stand for one night's entertainment.
Comedy abounds in the piece, as writ
ten by Campbell B. Casad, and with
Dave Lewis, the fun-making genius,
supervising the distribution of same,
the offering is bound to please.
The exquisite gowning is a distinct
ive feature of the performance and
many up-to-the-minute musical num
bers and specialties are introduced.
The cast includes Beatrice Horrell,
Cora Buckman, Ethel Mae Barker, Es
telle Vernon, Eleanor Frei Rose Gold
smith, Leona Fox, Marjorie Wilkes,
Ben Holmes, Harry LeMonde, Mart
Franklyn, John Keough. Paul Haynes
and Stanley Cristian.
On Monday evening, Feb. 24, Miss
Gladys Short was most agreeably sur
prised by a number of her friends.
The jolly crowd met at the home of
Miss M. Johnson and then proceeded
to the home of Capt. and Mrs. W. F.
Short in Seguin street. The evening
was most enjoyably spent. Those pres
ent were Misses M. Johnson, L. Harri
ghan. M. Gross, I. Huguet, I. Gross. W.

ONE OF THI LIONS KILLED DURI NG THE PAUL J. RAINEY EAST AFRICAN HUNT, SHOWN IN THE
RAINEY HUNT PICTURES AT THE TULANE, FOR THE WEEK OF SUNDAY, MARCH 2.
. J 1.- . .... . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
A motion picture exhibition that can
run for almost twelve consecutive
months on Broadway, New York city,
and play as many return engagements
throughout the country, must be con
siderably out of the ordinary. Paul J.
Rainey's African Hunt, as disclosed by
the cinematograph, is that rarity. It
will be brought back to the Tulane
Theatre for a return engagement be
ginning with a matinee on Sunday
Nearly every animal which Noah
took into the Ark is to be seen in its
native haunts, acting exactly as it is
natural for it to act when it does not
know that man is nigh. A herd of
wild elephants is seen feeding of an
acacia tree. Girafes stretch wide
apart their forelegs in drinking. Rhi.
noa light when one tries to usurp the
place of another at the water hole.
Monkeys and baboons cavort and play
pranks upbn one another. Zebras, an
telopes, and a dosen other species of
different wild animals reveal them
selves in strange behavior which is
entirely contrary to one's heretofore
conceived idea of how they act.
These motion pictures are so replete
with interesting detail that an experi
enced lecturer is kept busy explainlng
every foot of film for two solid hours.
RENECKY IS SATISFIED WITH A
LESS PROFIT. BUY YOUR 8HOES
Human lift is always the best field
for a dramatist to seek when writing
a play, because if this is done there is
certain to come a response that will
be especially strong and audiences will
appreciate the theme and its presen
Realizing this potent fact, Mr. Pe
ruchi has selected for the next at
traction at the Lyric Theatre a drama
that hews close to the line of life and
tells a story that is sublime in its
It is entitled "Aln Orphan's Prayer"
and it runs the gamut of human emo-'
tions, featuring pathos but not in any
wise forgetting that a hearty laugh is
enjoyed by everyone. It deals with
an orphan girl who goes through
many tortures and sorrows before she,
finally receives the reward of virtue
There is real villainy that works out
as it should with the schemer and his'
accomplices getting their just due.
The hero and heroine are also in the
limelight. How well the author has
done his part will te appreciated by
those who see the show next week,
commencilg with Sunday matinee.
The seat sale is indication that there
will be excellent houses.
"The Revelation, or The Woman of
Mystery," is meeting with the favor it
;was expected to awaken among the
patrons because it is unquestionably
the strongest play of its kind offered
by the Peruchi-Gypzene Stock Com
pany. It emphasizes in a forceful man
ner the power of a mother's love.
Like "Madame X" in many respects,
it is better than this famous drama on
the whole because none of the loose
ness of the latter are brought out in
"The Revelation." It is a clean, up
lifting story that carries a lesson that
will not fail to make its point.

FRANCIS STARR COMING TO THE
David Belasco's famous star, whose
rise has been phenomenal and due enl
tirely to her talents which Mr. Ile
lasco developed. Francis Starr, comes
to the Tulane for the week of March
b. This will be the first engagement
of Miss Starr in this city for several
seasons and she is assured of quite a
cordial welcome. She is to appear in
"The Case of Becky," which is consid
ered by many to be her greatest work.
'The play deals with the dual person
ality of a girl and is something of a
I)r. Jekyll and Mlr. Hyde story except
that the leading character is a young
woman and that there is a happy end
ing because the good finally triumphs.
"The Case of Becky" has been one of
the big successes of two seasons. Mr.
Belasco has surrounded Miss Starr
by an excellent company and the stage
settings are as elaborate as any other
Belasco production seen in years. The
engagement of Miss Starr is certain
to prove one of the real dramatic
events of the year in New Orleans.
ORPHEUM-MISS CECILIA LOFTUS
Cecilia Loftus, the inimitable mimic,
will make her appearance at the Or
pheum next week in her famous "Im
pressions of Artists."
No other mimic has ever achieved
the success of "Cissy" Loftus. So
great has been her triumphs that she
is to-day recognized as one of the
world's most talented artists. The art
of mimicry is unique. It is at once the
easiest and most difficult of arts
easy from the point of view of the
street gamin, whose favorite retort it
is, and difficult from the standpoint of
an artiste who realizes, as no one else
can, its vast possibilities.
Since Miss Loftus' last American
tour she has enjoyed the honor so
much coveted by English players-the
distinction of appearing before their
Majesties the King and Queen, an
honor attributed to her art. This,
however, was only a single instance of
her recognition by royalty. She has
played by command or invitation be
fore the most of the crowned heads
and dignitaries, having been the re
cipient of practically every honor it is
possible to bestow.
MRS. KOPPEL ENTERTAINS.
Mrs. George Koppel was the hostess
on Friday afternoon at a most delight
ful reading, when Miss Corinne Te
1bault read a very clever and interest
ing paper on "Constructive Thought,"
which was followed by a discussion
led by Mrs. Sake Mehan. An informal
tea drinking followed. In the center
of the richly spread board was a cut
glass vase filled with pink carnations
and asparagus ferns. Silver candle
sticks held lights shaded in silver fill
gree and pink shades. The chandelier
above was draped with smilax. Mrs.
James Porch and Mrs. Charles Patter
son, of Chicago, poured tea and choco
late from silver services. A number
of guests enjoyed the afternooh.
On Saturday, Feb. 22, quite a jolly
crowd of young folks gathered at the
home of Miss Veronica Haney of 720
Brooklyn avenue, for the purpose of
celebrating her seventeenth birthday.
Miss Veronica received her friends
most cordially, and quite a gilleasant
evening was spent In playing games.
Delkclous refreshments were served.
Miss Veronica was the recipient of
many valuable presents. The follow
ing young ladies and gentlement were
most delightfully entertained: Mfess
