The hall was artistically decorated

dish; fruits, nuts and everything you

"Little Women," the dramatization
of Louisa M. Alcott's much loved story
which held New York playgoers in its
grip all last season, will be presented
by William A. Brady at the Tulane
Theatre Monday night and every after
noon and night of the coming week.
Since the first announcement of the
coming of this play much interest has
been shown and already many mail
orders have been received front sur
rounding towns. The seats are in de
mand and it is now an assured fact
that crowded houses will be the rule
at all performances.
\Mr. Brady promises that the br-eezi
ness and charm of the familiar story
have been faithfully maintained. He
has been most careful in his selection
of "types" to impersonate Mleg. Beth,
Jo, Amy, Laurie. Mr. and Mrs. March.
the Professor, old Hannah, Aunt
March, and all the others over whose
joys and struggles so many millions of
readers have laughed and wept. Much
attention has also been given to a
faithful staging of scenes which are so
well described in the book. Many of
the identical costumes and properties
used by the March girls in their home
plays will be used in this production.
As is well known, the character of Jo
is Miss Alcott herself, while Mleg, Beth
and Amy are her sisters. Anna, Eliza

articles used throughout the play.
Incidentally. Mr. Ahlcott paid the dra:

compliment. After reading the dra

A FAMOUS DETECTIVE PLAY COM
ING TO THE TULANE.
Robert Hilliard, who prides himself
upon keeping "The Argyle Case"
strictly up to the minute, introduces a
scientific novelty in the third and
fourth acts, which have been greatly
revised since the popular detective
play had its first presentation.
It is the new device of K. MI. Turner,
inventor of the dictograph, and shows
the public for the first time how that
cunning little eavesdropper can repro
duce as well as record the human
voice. In the counterfeiting scene the
operatives hidden in the garret next
door will be seen recording the voices
on the roneophone as they are carried
over the wire.

again interpreting the title role. This
wholesome romantic comedy has been
pronounced by reviewers in practically
every city of the United States to be in
every way deserving of its extraordi
nary popularity. It has remarkable
heart interest, the tale of the parson
and the circus esquestrienne being
beautiful. From the opening, where
the audience is amused by the narrow
minded villagers who are surreptitious
ly etriving to catch glimpses of the
circus on the grounds adjoining the
parsonage, interest is eager. The en
trance of the injured equestrienne,
borne tenderly in the arms of the
young minister, never fails to bring
tears among many in the audience.
Mis St. Leon's portrayal of the title
role has been widely declared the best
and her management has surrounded
her with a capable supporting company
and an admirable production. Al- I
though "'olly of the ('ircus" is rated
somlew hat old in the matter of sea
sons, its no'elty has not staled. It en
joys as strong a grip on the country as
it did when first it set out on its wear
ing travels. Several transcontinental
tours have not impaired the drawing
qualities of thie romantic comedy and

the attraction goes into the storehouse.
