Edna Wallace Hopper Isn't to blame because the wicked playwright made her wear costumes that were so inconsiderable. Lillian Russell isn't to blame because her part didn't fall for a bathing suit like Miss Hopper's. Probably it is better that Miss 'Russeil dind't have to wear one. Wltert you -read further on what awful troubles .grew out of one very small little comic opera queen with one very very small costume you might imagine what f rlghtttn" 'tln'rigs wejmight now have to be tcllnig if the generous figure of Lillian WußseH had also-Jmrst upon the troubled scene lAtt fluttering bath robe. Before^rarratiiig the exact facts in this behind-the-scenes comic opera in real life we will relate Oie climax here; The Lil lian Russell-Edna Wallace Hopper Opera company abruptly closed , its career in Washington. The curtain was sorrowful ly rung down on "La Belle Helen*'" final ly and forever. The remaining six weeks' itinerary of Edna Wallace Hopper and her bathing suit were cancelled by Miss Russell. So up went the manager's notice on the bulletin board, and King Agamem non and King Menelaus and the Oracle and the choi'us and the trunks arc com ing home, sa*s- the New York Journal. Lillian Russell has resigned her part as La Belle Hetene in the comic opera of that name. It was largely a case of dignity against nudity, and the latter quality won a victory. Miss Russell represented dignity and Mrs. Edna Wallace Hopper nudity. Mrs. Hopper would also have us believe that it is a case -in which frivolous public preferred youth to maturity, but that is too delicate a subject for the pen of a critic. There had long been an ' unacknowl edged riva|ry between the two stars of comic opera. It culminated in Philadel phia last Monday night after a turbulent and indecorous ovation to Edna Wallace Hopper from the University of Pennsyl vania students. That was too much for Lillian Russell. She decided to resign at the end of the wec-Tc. The proportions of Edna Wallace Hop per to Lilliaii Russell are somewhat like those ot a wasp to a fine bumble bee. In other respects their relations have not been dissimilar. We all know that the wasp usually gets the best of the bee be cause the former has an unlimited ca pacity for stifiging. The audience that caused the trouble was made up principally of students from the University of Pennsylvania, noted for its spotting proclivities. They had heard of the interesting- costumes ■worn by Mrs- Hopper and went to the theater prejudiced in her favor, full of enthusiasm andi perhaps, something stronger. When Lillian Russell appeared they showed impatience and impoliteness. "How aid you win that foot race with Venus?" asked one of them who had a very hazy recollection of the contest um pired by Paris. "Get a move en. Show us your speed," cried eeveral. Miss Russell naturally left the stage in a state of just indignation. It was to b« heightened very much in the course of a few minutes. As aoon as Edna Wallace Hopper ap peared she was greeted with a storm of cheers, howls and more or less encour aging remarks, intermingled with the col lege yell. All the classical learning at the command of the students, together with a great -Hiany topical and personal allusions was showered upon her. When she first came on her costume seemed as slight as the conventions of the stage permit. But further revelations were in store. "What's the matter with Edna?" cried a voice. "She's all right," answered the chorus punctuated by the college yell. "What do you think of her dress?" "It's all right," answered the chorus again with the college yell. It required several pointed and forcible remarks fronxtEdna before she could go on with her performance. "You deserve to' be spanked," was her concluding observation. Having agreed that she was all right and fully vented their feelings, the stu dents allowed; hef to act in peace, but applauded vociferously at every suitable point. One studious, and chivalrous young man take up the case of the beautiful Lillian. He described Helen' s. dress from a man uscript which fie held in his hand. While he read others told the details of Lillian. Russell's costume and make-up. reader yelled: "Her eyes were length ened, as were her brows, by a blue Una. BUSINESS FACTS ! When you see a house advertising regularly every day, "Great assortment of colors and styles, the regular $12.50 kind for $8.00," do you believe it ? Do you think that right now at the start of the season anybody is selling you goods for $8.00 that are worth $12.50? If you do you must think merchants are philanthropists. We admit that we and others have "special sales," at which goods are sold below values — but we don't have them every day. We believe that honest advertising pays, and we have never yet, in 26 years, ever advertised a thing in the papers that we did not do' in our store- We have, we think, the best stock we ever have shown, and we know, furthermore, that no such stock has ever been shown in St. Paul. We have elegant Jackets at $8.09, and they are cheap and well worth $8 00 but they are NOT the $12.50 kind. See? . We are fully equipped to sell you a JACKET, SKIRT, or WAIST or SILK PETTICOAT for a FIV&DOLLAR BILL, the best that that sum will buy anywhere, but they are not the $8.00 kind. We also want one and all to understand that we have everything in Suits and Ladies' Wraps at prices as low as $10.00 and $12.50, as well a3 at all the intermediate prices np to $75.00; that our low prices are as low as anybody's, and surely our styles and qualities are known to be always good. We have seen "suits at $20.00, silk-lined," advertised as great bargains, "special for today," etc. We have plenty at this price and lower every day in ths week, and they are good and yet pay us a profit. All we want is to have you come into our store. If you have any prejudices against us, come in and they'll disappear like ice in the sun. Every day we hear it, "Certainly, we knew you had ths goals of the town, but we didn't think you carried such pretty things at our prices." Well, we do. We have a stock that any lady clerk or workingwoman can find what she wants in, and within her income, just as well as high-class novelties better than any store here carries, and in far more variety. These are plain state ments of facts. We rely on your verdict; use your eyes; conae and see us. Kindly tell us what you think. We want every lady's trade, and all will be waited on by skilled, polite clerks and given good attention, whether }'ou are shopping or buying, 99 AHD 101 EAST SIXTH STREET, ST. PAUL. STORE YOUR FURS— Sloths Ars New Dangerous. TELEPHONE 1071 Her pale and warm complexion was in toxicatingly youthful. "On her forehead her hair in short curls formed a straight line. Two tresses, brushed behind her ears, fell forward on her breast. She wore a diadem of pale gold and electrum. In the middle of It radiated the mysterious swatsika, which is the sacred sign of the Arayan rulers.Oa both sides of the diadem were long, pend ant jewels, llxed with chains and termi nating in triangular plates. "She wore necklaces of agate, jadite, porphyry and carnelian. Above that was another necklace of blue glass, intermin gled with charms, heads of birds and the mask of a cow. At the end was a round plaque chased with seven diamonds. Hep underskirt was of a fine, red stuff in small pleats, embroidered in colors. Hep overskirt was Indian pink, with sleeves to her elbows." — "To her elbows," the crowd repeated. "There were lotus flowers," the reader . screamed. "Lotus alba," the pedantic voices shout ed. "Yes, white lotus," the reader screech ed, "alternating with embroidered but tons"— He could not continue. The audience was weary of his description. His voice was hoarse from trying to be heard above the tumult Lillian Russell had quitted the stage in disgust. Presently, to the accompaniments of sticks beating time on tfre floors, voices shouted in unison: "Edna, Edna : Edna!" She said: "Pray, be quiet. We cannot 1 do anything unless you hush." They applauded. The asked her if she was in love with the play or with them. She replied;, . "With you. Actors love only the pub lic." fi! She was a- Greek figure copied from a bass-relief of the Parathenon, and yet she might have played Helen to that au dience. No other woman could have cap tivated its adoration as well. It was amazing. . Ffjm act to act Edna's costume be came scantier and scantier. As the eur [ tain rose in the last act Edna emerged from the sea with just the smallest bath ing tights imaginable. The boys looked at the programme and shouted: "If there was one more act what would you wear, Edna?" "Wait and see," she replied. Lillian Russell #as on the point of stepping into her carriage. Her manager arrived in time. She returned to the stage, almost un ; wittingly. She played and sang better than ever. Plaudits came irresistibly, but I the enchantment of Edna Wallace Hop per regained its power in an instant. A courteous old Philadelphian said sorrow t fully:. "They have a power superior to steam, j to electricity and to the genius that uses I them. They have a power in the lack I of which poets die in the hospital, or at I the door of the hospital. They have sweet, immaculate, triumphant and serene silli ness." After the performance Lillian Russell absolutely made up her mind to leave, and gave notice to George W. Lederer that she would do so at the end of the week. She was asked by a reporter in Wash ington if she and Mrs. Hopper had quar relled, and gazed at her questioner with an amazed air. She said: "I like Edna Wallace Hopper extreme ly. She is a pretty, dainty, little wom an. I am jealous of her? What an idea? We are not even rivals. "I cease playing because I am tired, because the rest of the trip is to be a -continuous run from town to town. I was not offended by what happened In Philadelphia. Disorder of the galleries Is to be expected there." Edna Wallace Hopper said: "Lillian Russell is exquisite. I have a great deal of affection for her. "I trying to dethrone her? We are not of the same epoch." She was ordered by Lederer not to talk of Lillian Russell. Mrs. Hopper diverted the conversation to the weather, the races, the achieve ments of her dog. Her smile was pret tily enigmatic. Mrs. Hopper admired in Philadelphia a child's cradle in iron gilt and silk, yellow or saffron. And they have ordered for hare there a large cradle, pink and gold. It is proper to recall hero that Lillian Russell long ago abandoned the practice of wearing tlghta. She was once sued by her manager because she had refused to wear them. She replied that nature has been so generous to her that It was out of the question for her to appeal to the public In the manner suggested. More ovor, she was extremely sensitive to cold. When It was pointed out that she might have a woolen lining under the other' garments she eaid that It was ab surd. One may truthfully say that it was on artistic grounds that Miss Rus sell set her face against tight*. NORTH ST. PAUL.
