HERNHARI)T AND RUMORS OF
When Sarah Bernhardt, who will
appear in vaudeville at the Orpheum
next week first visted America in
1880, she discovered that some in
teresting and uninteresting rumors
concerning her had preceded her
coming, and one of her first duties
followlng her arrival was to set some
of the unsettled naratives right.
The first Interview granted Mme.
Bernhardt, stands today genuinely
relecting the views of the. great
Prench actress on many points.
Bernhardt' interrogator had put
a question, and she replied:
"You ask me what my theory In
lfe is: It is represented by the word,
'Will.' Just as my theory of art
is represented by the word 'Nature"'
And to memorlse the many parts
she played, Boernhardt said she found
that she required the most insistent
display of will power, coupled with
all her phyeleal power.
In a lighter vela, Bernhardt con
"I do not sleep in a coafn-now.
1 did so once upon a time to fa
miliarise myself with the idea of
death. But not for long, however.
I find it is not so comfortable as a
bed. And it is curious how many
idle stories there are about me. My
familiar dishes, I hear, are burnt
cats, lizards' tails and peacocks'
brains 'sautes au bleurre de singe.'
Nor is it true that I like to play
at croquet with skulls. Please do
not let these untruths remain un
challenged. In many ways I hope
I am entirely human. I try to be,
On her first visit to this country
Bernhardt brought with her the
famous diamond necklace presented
to her at a banquet at the Grand
Hotel when Victor Hugo and one
hundred and fifty leading French
men tcatsed her and gave her the
costly token of their esteem, fol
lowing the 100th performance of
"Hernani." Then, as now, Bern
hardt designed her own costumes,
many of which were copied by the
modistes of that period.
H. N. G. C. THEATER.
The foll6wing will be the features
for the reopening night of the HI N.
G. C. Theater:
"Her Boy" is a great message of
patriotism in line with Metro's con
sistent policy of aiding the govern
ernment in every possible way to
light the torch of patriotic fervor
and keep it flaming. Lovely Effie
Shannon and Nilee Welch are co
stars in the production, but other
parts are of great strength and
value, and the human element of the
story itself is of the utmost import
ance in "Hter Boy."
"Her Boy" illustrates the way in
which the war comes home to fam
flies. It shows the torturing sacri
fices mothers must make to send
their sons away, but it shows also
that duty to the nation and devotion
to the right lie deep in the heart of
every right-minded American boy.
By every means in her power Helen
Morrison, in "Her Boy." tries to keep
"her boy" from entering the service,
only to find that her most extreme
measure, her "last card," is the very
one that convinces him that enlist
Every man in Algiers should
