Josef Hofman who appears at Aug-

ished the musical world of New York
1 1 yors ago. It was declared then,
by many who marveled at him that he
would never arrive at musical matur
ity; h.'.s emotions were too immense.
Critics adjudged him abnormal. It
was easy to understand the poetry and
freshness of his conceptions, his ex
quisite touch and nuances of shading,
lie general f unity of his interpreta
tions. He was but 10 years old then.
'tnd great artists, when they heard him
play, wept, as other musicians did, at

athy. Otis Skinner's New Play.
The scenes of Otis Skinner's new
tichepin play. "The Harvester." which
s to be seen here next Friday evening
ire said to be exceptionally beautiful
'ootlight pictures. The five full stage
ets were all painted by Walter Dur
ridge. the celebrated scenic artist, who
visited French Canada in person to
catch with his own eye the tone and
atmosphere of every view presented.
The result has been the finest series
'Hat has ever come from his brush.
The first scene is that of a golden har
vest field glowing in the warm red-yellows
of the summer sun, with the fair
valley of t lit' St. Iiwrenee rolling
away in harvest splendors to the river
horizon. This scene is susceptible of
magnificent shadings into deeper reds
and browns as the sunset "effects"
come on at the act end. The second
"set" is a typical cottage Interior of
French -Canada in the early 5u's. with
Its great fireplace, shining bra.-ses. an 1
kw broad casements, wide-open to a
Millet like scene of field and farm be
yond, again warm ami glowing in the
mid-day sen. This scene reflects in a
notable way the entire peasant locale
and color of the play with its quaint
and plctercsfjue "habitant" types. The
third act shows the scene before an
ancknt village in at Dominique, and
the sombre .-hades d" wiwliand and
hill in the brown-green tones of the
dving .lav. The f. n; rt h act discloses
the ii'.i'-T beautiful scene of ail the
walled garden and apple orchard of the
rich Seigneur. , This is a masterpiece
of idyllic beauty, with its wealth of
white Mts?oms and its realistic " f
fects" such r.s the naturally bending
apple liough by means of which the
gypsy swings himself from the wall.

I Illinois theatre tomorrow evening In
' the new pastoral comedy, "An Or-
! phan':- Prayer," renewed hope and
; gladness, filis the hearts of every ad
mirer of this lamoas actress. Miss
Bisnette enjoys a popularity seldom
attained by an artist in her line, and
her many friends have patiently
awaited the day when she would put
forward in a manner worthy of her
talents. However "An Orphan's
Prayer" seems to have removed the
stumbling block that so often appears
in the form of a bad vehicle, for the
play is said to be a master story, beau
tifully told, and the performance ac
corded it by Miss Bisnette and her
associates Is of a completeness and
evenness that everywhere calls for
the stamp of sterling. The principals
of the company are most of them well
known, having served honorably in
several noted productions. Of Miss
Bisnette it is scarcely necessary to
write. Her career has been frequent
iy outlined at length and her ability
as a player is too greatly recognized
to call for emphasizing at this time
Allbeif, there is every reason for an

The Stain of Guilt.
A play which promises to please
local theatregoers is the production
of "The Stain of Guilt " which will be
: "is '
seen at the Illinois theatre March 1.
It is from the pen of Walter Math
ews, and is said to be pronounced
melodrama of the highest order, full
of heart interest, and telling an ab
sorbing story. It is also said to
abound in bright comedy and to point
to a moral which will be sure to have
a giMid effect upon the young. Briefly
told, the story of "The Stain of Guilt"
is that of a young girl who was stol
en from her father, when a babe, by
tier cousin and an Italian street musi
cian. When the play begins she is a
iirl of 17 and is known as the child
of the Italian, who compels her to sing
n the streets. A young bank cashier
ias fallen in love with her and woul 1
marry her. but he is charged with the
robbtry of the bank by the same cou
sin who helped steal the child. A de
tective, who is a frund of the cashier,
ind rtakes to clear him of the crime
fastened upon him and in so doing in
curs the enmity of the Italian and the
cousin who several times comes near
killing him at one time placing him
under ;i condensing elevator which is
stop-ied through the heroism of the
street sinser. Eventually the girl is
restored to her father and the two
scoundrels meet the fate they so just

Miss Holland's Royal Robes.
Probably the portion of Mildred Hol
land's play. "The Triumph of an Em
press." which took the greatest
amount of thought, labor, study and
money, is the- eostumine. Generally
in cost limine a piece, even a great one.
there is more or less clever work done
wi:h a view to deluding the spectators
and all this is proper enough in stage
work, as th public witnessing the pro
duction does not have the opportunity
for close inspection and the principle
of "what they don't know doesn't wor
ry them" comes in very good use In
that business. This very useful lit
tle saving, however, has been entirely
ignored in costuming "The Triumph of
An Empress" by Edward C. White
and Miss Holland. The more the pub
lic knows of these elegant costumes
the better, is their way of thinking
Miss Holland spent the summer of
19'3 in Russia studying the atmo
phere of the Russian court, and look
ing- up data regarding Catherine the
Great, She was armed with excellent
letters of introduction and by the lib
eral and constant use of the coin of
the realm gained all her objects and
was allowed to copy every robe and
jewel she wished. This work has been
done with an accuracy and exactness
which Miss Holland vouches for.
Hacket Has New Play.
James K. Hackett has secured the
American rights to "The Walls of Jer
icho." Alfred Sutro's play, that ha
been the success of the present sea
son in London. The fact of Mr. Hack
ett s purchase or tne p:ay was mane
public some weeks ago. but no time
was set for the first American presen
tation. Mr. Hackett, who is now ap
pearing in the Grand opera house. Chi
cago. in "The Fortunes of the King,"
stated last evening that he will pro
duce the drama in New ork early
next autumn. His belief that "The
Walls of Jericho" will find a great fav-
or here, as it has in London, was con
siderably strengthened last week
when he received an offer from a prom
inent New' York manager of $.10,000
Mr. Hackett decided, however, to re
tain the play for his own use.
