through the desire for revenue upon
tie young husband. It tells of a blind
infatuation which loads the wife to
forget her. vows and depicts the for
raw and remorse consequent. The ul-
could lie offered of its entertaining
fptalitU's. If the opinions of the an
tics and the public in those cities and
in every other in which "Pojjsy from
Paris" has len present can be
taken as a Ruarantoe. this play is par
ticularly slron.E; in wit. humor, original
ity and novelty. The very mention of
Mr. Ade's name rs the author is proof
of the laughter-creating elements of
the piece. There are droll characters
and funny complications from first to
la.t. Indeed. "Peggy from Paris" is a
mirth mater. All the persons in the
play and ercrytlnng they say end do
; amusing. Then there is delightful
music which was written Uy William
Ix)raim coinio.-er of "Salome" and
"Zamona." t litre is a great variety to
the melodies but all are bright and
catchy and of the kind that tinKle in
memory after the hearer leaves the
theater. The ciorus numbers are es
l eially effective. They are bright
d spirited and they comrfdno move
ment and meloJy. for graceful and fan
ciful dunces accompany the verses.
Take a succession of pretty airs and
have them sung hy a score of pretty

"Peggy from Paris." '"Peggy from
Paris," George Ade's musical comedy
kit is coming to this city and will be
the attraction at the Illinois theater
next Thursday, Sept.
Of all the
recent musical comedy successes
"Pegsy from Paris is one of the most
notable. It ran four months in New
York five In Boston and three in Chi
cago. This Is the best proof that
ihere is about all one could ask for in
a musical play. "Peggy from Paris"
offers all this and more, for there Is
beautiful scenery and a series of ad
mirable stage pictures.
Furniture from Abroad. The furni
ture used in the last act of "The Greats

Davenport, this evening, with Aubrey
Bouciccault and a superb cast of 50

Comes Oct. 1. A theatrical event
of much importance will be the engage
ment of Walker Whiteside at the Illi
nois Oct. 1. Mr. Whiteside will pre
sent his new play, "The Magic Melo
dy." a charming story of love and mu
sic, finance and flower gardens, and
of the artistic ambitions which sur
mount all obstacles and win both
fame and fortune.
"A Poor Relation." Like the ueturn
of ah old friend Sol Smith Russell's
"A Poor Relation" will be welcomed
at the Illinois theater on Saturday,
Spt. 20, matinee and evening. Ever a
prime favorite with the theater going
public Sol Smith Russell achieved the
height of kis feme in the piece, it pos
sesses that power admixture of humor
and pathow which goes directly to the
heart. Amid poverty in all that dread
word implies the poor reJaion is an
individual whose wealth lies in his
genius, ever unrewarded, and an unfal
tering wit nd cheerfulness that arous
es one's laughter when he is to be
pitied the most. Lee D. Ellsworth,
who plays the part of Noah Vale,
nafrkes an excellent iaiprossion by his
work. As a member of that class of
people, the poor relation who comes
in for nearly as much satire as the
old and reliable mother-im-Iaw standby,
his meekness and utterly placid dispo
sition is so delightfully humorous that
it is out of the question to repress
one's laughter. Inconscious of self,
speaking his lines to nobody in par-
lienor and without the least effort to
encourage the interest of the audi
ence, his hearers in return give him
the closest attention. Mr. Ellsworth

pany of capable players. I
