for Next Week.
The salft of seats opens this morn
ing for Frank Lalor's appearance in
, the new musical comedy, "Prlnca
I Humbug," which occurs at the Hy
perion next Tuesday night. That
there Is quite, likely tu be an unusual
demand Is shown in the numerous re
.. quests that scats be laid aside which
have been received by mail and 'phone
during the past few day. Mr. Lalor's j
great popularity here, and the fact :
. that he comes with a production
which has just made an extraordin- j
ary success In Boston, is responsible i
ror the wide-spread Interest which
: prevails. It appears to be generally
known that "Prince Humbug" com
biner all the elements necessary to
the success of a musical comedy with
' an environment of scenery, costumes,
electrical and mechanical effects
. which gives It all the brilliancy of a
vast spectacle. On this point the con
servative Boston Transcript says, "The
' production is a most effective series of
' pictures, exceptionally rich In color
ing and supmtuousness. It Is many
a rr.onth since any entertainment ot
this type has been so superhly cos- j
! turned. At times one forgets that It Is I
a musical comedy and sees In It the ,
, glitter of Impressive spectacle." All i
of the Boston papers have Indulged
In unstinted praise of Mr. Lalor's new j
. production and of the, excellence of
his supporting company. "Prince j
Humbug Is said to tell an Immensely
funny story and to have a very charm- !
. Ing musical score. In view of all 1
, that has been said and written con
cerning this performance It Is safe to
assume that It will prove to be one
'. of the most delightful events of the
. entire amusement season here. It n
expected that a long line of purchasers
will be waiting for the box offices to
open this morning.
"The Rod Mill."
Montgomery and Stone, with a sup
porting company of 90 people, will
present for four performances at the
Hyperion that tremendously successful
musical comedy, "The Red Mill." Ii
Is nearly two years since a cordial
first-night audience passed Judgment
upon "The Red Mill" and the approval
so generously expressed found ample
endorsement In New York, where the
victor Herbert-Henry Blossom offer
ing enjoyed a run of one solid year
at the Knickerbocker theater. Later
on, Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago
had opportunity to enjoy the delights
of this particular excellent fabric of
bright humor and tuneful arias. Monf
gomery and Stone have had a tre
mendous personal following since the
days that they stepped out of hlsh
class vaudeville to creat the ludicrous
ly original characters, the Scarecrow
and the Tin Woodman In "The Wizard I
of Oz." In "The Red Mill," though j
they appear In a dozen different j
guises, they are nlways recognizable, I
In the words of Mr. Blossom, the au-
thor, "as real human beings."
The two principal comedians are
supported by a cast of notable excel
lence, Including all the favorite artists
who had part In the Broadway run,
with one exception. The newcomer Is
Mies Florence Qulnn, a young prima
donna recently returned from Europe,
who Ii said to be possessed of mani
fold charms of personality, as well as
of a -splendid voice, admirably trained.
Others prominent In the east are; Al

Cooper, Neal McCay, Charles Dox,
Maxima Verande, David L. ?)nn, Stan
