A notable achievement In Stock com pany offerings Is to be credited to the management of the Bijou theater In producing next week that superb west ern drama "The Thr of lTs."

It enjoyed n run of nearly two years at the Madison Square . theater In New York city with Carlotta NcUson in the leading role and when played on the road was everywhere hailed as one of t"2,best attractions of recent seasons. This play has been produced only hi lar, stock companies and then in houses with a scale of nrices ranging to one dollar and a half.

Some Idea of the work of the ? mi Af I ViWimiiiwfiittjiMiMiiiiMiiiMiT ! nriiiiil The sobriquet, "the youngest star on the American stage," has been applied1 indiscriminately the last few years, but Elsie Jahis has proved her exclusive right to such a distinction, and she appears to be In- a fair way to continue the right to the'title for some years to come. Miss Janis was born in Colum bus about eighteen years ago, and, as a mere child, her faculty foi Imitations had asserted itself so pronouncedly that her mother determined to have her adopt a stage career. On Decem ber 24, 1898, Elsie made her first, ap pearance on the stage, appearing with James Ncill's stock company at Pike's Opera house, Cincinnati, her first part toeing in "The Charity Ball." Miss Janis remained with that company two weeks only, playing children's parts. Three years later, upon the advice of the late President McKinley, Whom the family had known socially for several years, she went on the vaudeville stage, billed as "Little Elsie, the Pocket Edi tion of Clssie Loftus." Her Imitations jruuer or well known players created a posi tive furore everywhere she appeared. She played In New York theaters for a few weeks but the Gerry society started legal proceedings because of her youth and for several years she appeared ev erywhere except in New York. In the summr of 1904 Miss Janis appeared un der the maangement of Milton and Sar gent Aborn, being started as F;n in "The Belle of New York." The beginning of the season of 1905-6 she starred for three, months in "The Little Duchess." January B, 1306, she appeared under the direction of Llebler & Co., as the star In "The Vanderbllt Cup." Miss Janis Is now appearing In her latest vehicle, 'The Hoyden," un der the management of Chanes Dill ingham, written for her by Cosmo Hamilton. Phe comes to the Hyperion Tuesday, February 4, for the night "A Race for Life." "A Race for Life" was presented to a large audience at the New Haven the ter last night. The staged story Intro duces, among other characters, Austin Seymour, a badly involved cattle ranch owner; Jessie, his daughter; John Hun ter, a western horse owner; Harry, his son and Jessie's sweetheart; Alexandra Belmont, a New York heiress in love with young Hunter; Nick Davis' sweet, heart; Bill, one. of Hunter's trainers; Jim, a brakeman; Hop Lee and Be delii O'Grady, servants on Seymour' ranch, Jessie Seymour's beautiful race horse. The performance will be repeated to day, matinee and night. ' AT POLI'S THEATER Two Features Announced on the Bill for the Week to Come. only. "The Smoke and the Fire." For next Thursday at the Hyperion Manager Eldrldge will have one of the distinct treats of the season, when the distinguished actress, Miss Henrietta. Crosman will appear In the rew com edy, "The Smoke and the Fire." TMs new offering Is described by Miss Cros man's managers as a comedy of senti ment and Is from the pen of the suc cessful playwright, Jesse Trimble, The play has for lis motive th. love of a mother for her child an.l the sacrifices she is often called on to make lor hose under her sheltering care. It is said to have been treated In a somewhat start ling yet direct and simple manner by the playwright and to have won com pelling charm In its Interpretation in the hands of Miss Crosman. The mo tive Is certainly one of appealing force to men and women of all condition In life, and should afford an evening of the highest possible class of entertain ment. IDA FIXLER. At Toll's Next Week. J. v" '.V- - --7 o f !-f" - . ,"v X V ' , 4 i - - A -f'.Cv , ?:- Eddie Foy t'oming. Eddie Foy, a dozen other well known stars and a stunning Broadway beauty cnorus of sixty, are to be seen .it ihe Hyperion, Friday and Saturday with matinee," February 7 and 8., In the massive English musical comdv tuc- ccss, "The Orchid," which Is direct from a six months' run at !iv Fi.-ldv Herald Square theate. Now Yotk. The piece also bloomed two consecutive years at the Gaiety tn-iter. L md.m.J Unlike most mtislcal comedies. "The Orchid" abounds in plot. Tha Me?.is. Shubert. have surrounded Mr. Foy with a class A cast, which In addition to La Petite Adelaide, includes such Impor tant players as Flavla Arcaro, Rose' Kotti, Florence Martin, Marleta dl Dlr, Ada Gordon, William Cameron, Georg C. Boniface, Jr., Knute Erlckson, Da vid Bennett, Roy Atwell and others. "The Orchid." which Is the work of six authors Messrs. James T. Turner, Joseph W. Herbert, Adlnn Ross, Percy Grcenlock, Ivan Caryll and Lionel Monckton, Is In two acts and Ihree scenes. The scenes show the bowered grounds of the horticultural college, the public square in Nice, and the Bal Blanc in the Nice Opera house, and are eclipsed In beauty only by the be wlldeilng display of gowns and th general gorgeousness of the costuming. Manager Poll will offer a two-feature bill next week at his theater. Ida the sensational dancer, with her fire and electrical effects, and Mc Mahon and Chappell with their Pull man Porter Maids will share the top line position. The mantle of Miss Loie Fuller has fallen upon the shoulders of Miss Ida Fuller, who Introduces her new start ling electrical sensation entitled "Lo Sorciere." With the aid of many hued lime and electric lights Miss Fuller transforms a gauze veil into a darting lambent flames. As the light plays upon the voluminous veil, the dancer Is seen one moment Grlgolatl llke floating through the air, then be neath in a succession of beauti ful poses, while lightning flashes and clouds whirl by to the accompaniment of thunderous music and the sound of the walling wind. The last scene is unquestionably the most startling. The scene is a cavern, in the back ground of which a solitary figure can be discerned. Suddenly the stage opens, and by an exceedingly clever device, the result, apparently, of steam and of long strips of muslin, rendered luminous by electric light, tongues of flame shoot Into the air from the crater of a volcano. At last her costume becomes Ignited and she sinks to the ground while the stage which was volleying hot sparks a moment before, Is slowly darkened. It would be difficult to Imagine a more vivid .or beautiful effect or one better calculated to prove to what an extraordinary pitch of perfection real Ism on the ftage Is rapidly being brought. ; . ; i i McMahon and Chappelle .with their "Pullman Porter Maids" are to share headline honors with their special act "Why Hubby Missed the Train." It's a trip to laughterland, the Introduc tion of a number of song hits, ten sprightly young girls who do a black face specialty which was originated by Tim McMahon. The act is In several scenes and has been one of this sea son's biggest winners. The Quartet, four singers who stand without a peer In vaudeville this sea son, are to be In the olio; Harry and Kate Johnson in a skit "His Day Off." De Onge Bros., with their novelty act, Hanson and Nelson In "A Little of Everything," will Introduce two charming comediennes, Elsa Von Der Voort, the contralto of the H. W. Sav age opera forces, and the electrograph with "Mother-ln-Law" at the White City," and "The Legless Runner" will complete the bill. , Scats now selling for all week.
