ALMA RUBENS IN TRIANGLE PLAY. "I LOVE YOU. FOLLY THEATRE TUESDA Y NIGHT. TRIXIE FRIGANZA NEXT WEEK Trixie Friganza, the dreadnaugh* comedienne, her sixteen-inch guns loaded with fun, is headed this way on the Orpheum Circuit, and will fire her laugh projectiles into the Orpheum audiences here next week. Miss Friganza will offer her inti mate revue and 'will be aided by Max Welly and Melisso Ten Eyck Beautiful, bountiful, buxom Trixle' riganza has been likened to many things, and she has been elected Chairlady of the Fun Control Comrn mltte. Hers is a generous spirit an her idea of Fun Control does no include any conservation of the pro duct. Not even Mr. Hoover could regulate that where Miss Friganza. is concerned. "Laughter in generous dosesm is her prescription for all all mneats, and when she is present, the gloom army is in full rout, making an ignominious retreat. The engagement of Miss Friganza, on the Orpheum Circuit marks her return to vaudeville after two years tn musical shows, excepting for a summer engagement in the Orpheum theatres on the coast. The financial inducements of the Orpheum man ugement were strong, ,but to Miss Priganza the money was secondary to the fact that she would be back in the two-a-day, among the people Lr I" ý 1 RIAWb T~ OP~JY y s moat and in the lorious ry covered by the Orpheum . Priganza is not a tempera tel star. Much as vaudeville au lmases love her, those who come an eeatact with her back stage love her eore more, if that Is possible. Her buoyant spirits back stage are Just as uplifting before and after her per rmanae, and she laughs and Jokes with everyone, from the manager of he theatre to the property man. The tdoependence and democracy of van deville appeal to her. "In vaudeville," she says, "I am mat restricted to certain set dialogue or business, and I can do as I like.' And it is what Miss Prigansa likes that the audienees like. Trixze Prigansa. soon to appear at the Orpheum, appreciates a joke on herself, and she relates an incident 0 occurred last summer when she Was playing a special Orpheum en m ot in San Prancisco. At re she was speaking to the or. "Now that 'I am back In vaude *wl," she said. "I want to do some fit big--ou know, something die.rent, something that has not e demoe before, somethtal that is wrel ' big. What do you think I saght to do." "Well.

It was not long before young Leslie developed into a full fledged compositor. then in to a reporter. To-day when travelling around the country, nothing affords him more pleasure than to spend his spare time in newspaper offices setting up type. It was largely as a reporter that Mr. Leslie discovered the irresistible ,charm of the kind of slang which he has brought to the role of Hogan. George Ade, the celebrated author of "'Fables in Slang." was a fellow reporter on the Chicago Daily News Staff. Although their expressions in slang are entire dissimilar, they have each developed a style of lan guage unmistakably representative of that "breezy" Americanism we are prone to boast of. But Leslle's earlies activities were not in journalism. He was about ten years old when he ran away from his home in Dubuque, Iowa, and joined an itinerant theatrical troupe playing small villages and lumber i camps in Wisconsin. He worked with this company for six months. with out ever getting a cent of salary, and one day he asked for $6.00. "That's the best joke you have sprung since you have been with me," said the owner of the show, and promptly discharged Leslie. L Later again, his hankering for the stage expressed itself while he was on the Chicago Daily News, and he quit to join an Indian medicine show. Soon'after, he joined Mur ray and Mack and rewrote "Finne gan's Ball," a big success of those days. His first New York success was with Charles Frohman's pro duction of "-luff Ruffy Ruffles" with Hattie Williams, and be ap peared with Pauline Chase in "Our Miss Gibbs." Later he was with Lew Fields in "The Hen Pecks." His vaudeville appearances were further interrupted last year when he was engaged as a featured member of "Town Topics." LAPAYETrE THEATRE TO RE.

AT THE FOLLY THEATRE, TUES DAY. TULANE THEATRE To perform with real success the character of Shaekspeare's Hamlet demands qualifications of so extra ordinary a nature that a celebrated critic declared that only once in fifty years was found an actor ade quately equipped for this task. The requirements are physical distinc tion, a trained voice and the highest intelligence. Added to this there must be an imaginative tempera ment and depth of soul rarely found. The critics of New York have de clared John E. Kellerd to be pos sessed of these qualifications. Wil liam Winter and Allen Dale have declared him the most brilliant of all contemporary actors. His run of 'Hamlet at the Harris and Garden Theatres in New York, which reached 102 nights placed him by common consent at the head of his calling. This season he is the only actor touring in Shakespeare and has gathered around him the most notable actors the American stage affords. During his stay here, Kel lerd will present Hamlet, The Mer chant of Venice, Macbeth and Much Ado About Nothing. Kellerd is com ing to New Orleans next week to fill a one week engagement at the Tulane Theatre.

"They are God's own people l" spoke Nathan Wayne reverently. His wife's eyes were lifted gratefully, tearful, elo quent. "What should we have done if they had not come to our rescueT' she mur mured. "They have taken our few household possessions at double what the storekeeper would give for them, have made it possible for us to reach our new home. Oh, Nathan I I bless them every hour." "And their -Id, Malcolm. Think of his taking his little savings to buy a suitcase for Hazel!" And Hazel, aged twelve, just coming into the house, halted in the hallway, listened to the conversation, took up the new suitcase standing there, and quietly left the place. Nathan Wayne and his family had met with misfor tune, loss and poverty, and he had been forced to give up their mortgaged home. A brother of Mrs. Wayne living in Oklahoma seemed their only refuge. They had written him and he told Mr. Wayne that he operated a small ranch near a town site, where he needed some one to look after the subdividing and sale of what he owned of the same, and could And something for his rela tive to do. It was only through the kindly co-op eration of John and Mary Dinslow that the unfortunates were able to meet t their debts and secure sufficient money to carry them to their destination. Hazel Wayne pressed her ips closely i together to keep from sobbing. There was a token of strong determination in "I'll Fill It With Rocks." ber Waes. h81e wet over to the Dia, low place nearby and cast her eyes over its wide expanse critically, to make out the object of her visit sharp ening a scythe over in the hay field. He was seated on a big log and looked up with a welcome smile as his little fa vworlte came into view. "Malcolm," spoke Hazel at once, "y ou sent me this saltcase, didn't your "Why, yes," nodded he. "And probably it took all your hard earned savings and-Malcolm. I can't I take it l" and Hazel's tones began to "Why nott?" questioned her boy friend amasedly. "Because you folks have already bse more for us than anybody else aIn the world, even our relatives. 4 eou must take the saultcase back and get the money for it." "I won't," observed Malcolm aris to his feet, and grimly resolaute In tone and bearing "Oh I adeed, yu mnust, tnsisted Ha- . seL.

Her own wore a momentary flash ot radiance. Then the quick tears sprang to her eyes. "Always good, kind and true !" she half sobbed.

She came clae p to him, so genaale In her nmocence and trathfulness that there was either self-cosscmeaes I or afectie. She klased him on both I cheeks, moved away, piceked up the I suttease and, turnln the Isn. waves 1 ADVERTISE IN THE HERALD her tear-stalined handkerchief back at him. It was Malcolm who drove the Waynes with their few traps to the lo cal railway station. Hazel purposely acted proud and careful of the neat lit tle sauitcase. She did not kiss Malcolm in the presence of the crowd at the depot, but she clasped his hand fer vently and looked up into his eyes, and said in a low, intense tone: "Every anniversary of this day I wil send you some word." Thus there sprang up in the soul of the young man a beautiful Ideal, hal lowed by the memory of that parting. In the course of a month they heard from Mr. Wayne. lte told of occupa tion which held cheering promises for future prosperity. A little later he sent a draft for one hundred dollars, insist ing that Mr. Dinslow must have lost that much on taking their poor furnl ture at the price he did. To the day, at the end of the year there came a letter to Malcolm. It was filled with the joyous Interest of an in nocent spirit enraptured with the nov elty of new scenes, but breathing a longing for the old home and its treas ured surroundings. Five years passed away. Always upon that set anniversary there came the promised missive from Hazel. She told of her mother and father both dying and that her uncle had adopted her. Meantime Malcolm Dinslow had known a like double bereavement. Add ed to this great grief which made of him an isolated, lonely man, was the burden of carrying the little mortgaged farm. His parents had been improvi dent only in aiding others at the cost of responsibilities and debt for them selves. Ten years hard grubbing would win the place clear, and man fully Malcolm buckled down to his task. It was the fifth anniversary of the day he had parted with Hazel Wayne. He was rather gloomily returning from the town, for there had been no letter. Malcolm carried a basket laden with home necessaries. It was rather heavy and he had set it down to rest for a moment, when one of two ladies whom he had just passed without particular ly noticing them, approached. "Let me share your burden, please," uttered a thrilling voice, and Malcolm Dinslow, petrified, faced Hazel Wayne. "Why, Hazel-Miss Wayne, I mean !" he stammered, so overcome that he barely extended his hand. "You don't-you mean Hazel, she cried, In her old-time open way. "Oh, Malcolm ! I am homeless, friendless, although Undcle 811as dying has left me rich. I had to come back-I was hothesick for the old town, and you.1 She could note his changing color, the eager, aroused flicker In his ee, and was content and glad. "And you are to come to the hotel with my maid and L There is so much to tell, and I still have the dear cher Ished suitcase, and it is filled with money, and It is all for you, as I sid Or years ago." "That is noMseesb HBasl," he said. "You must accept it, at least share it. If you don't, Malcolm Dinslow, I will fill In the suitcase with big ugly rocks and slak It In the creek!" Malcolm could not retrain a smile, and Easel quite laughed, for she had quoted his own words of five years pro When Malcolm Dlnslow left the heb tel that nalght, the stars seemed blink ing down upon him a rare beatson, for HBasel was to become mistress of the old homestead the next week.
