For one who has prac tically Riilded himself, he has achieved much that he may be proud of. The Woodward Stock company at the Pur wood was quite In keeping with th spirit of the week, offering a roaring comedy on that almost touches on the farcical, and doing It In capital style. The nature of the play and the standing of the com pany drew to the theater nightly and dally all the people who could be accommodated within the walla. Over at the Orphsum practically the same story Is told. One of the best bills ever presented there was offered, and the patronage waa all that could be taken care of. The vaudeville Cltlea," "Pictures in the Bmoke" and others, have nerved in large meaaure In maintain. ng a lnntlng popularity for this entertainment. "The Prince of Plleen" Is being played by one company only and Its roster bears the names of Jess Dandy, Arthur Donaldson, Ivar Anderson, James K. Rome, J. Hayden Clarendon, refer Swift, txulse Willis, Ruth Peebles, Marguerite Ferguson, Pauline Huntley, Marie Welsh, Ida Stanhope and others.

The Howard brothers do a unique musical turn with their flying banjoes. Mexlas and Mexlaa, a clown and hls dog, contribute comedy and a number of tricks. Timely new motion pictures will be projected by the klnodrome. "Sergeant Brue," Frank Daniels' musical farce which run In New Tork all summer and was a feature of the fall seaaon In Chicago, Is snld to be one of the best things of Its kind ever brought from Eng- on the midway to the more substantial pabul'-.m afforded by Mr. Mantel) and his nssirlates. That probably explains the condition that prevailed as well as anything could. Whatever Mr. Mantell's visit might have lacked In success from the box office point of view, It was certainly a glittering tri umph from the standpoint of the stage manager. Much discussion has been had as to Shakespeare with scenery and stage ottlnps. Surely the magnificent pictures designed by the poet never had more ap propriate or effective settings than were afforded In this Instance. The various scenes were set with correct backgrounds and were richly appointed In all regards, day night and delighted those who attended Playgoers. It deals with a story that teems ,an1 not pptln.. ..F)orodora, whlch( with a typical Sousa program, delivered as only Sous can. Sorrentino and his Red Band had a bit of trouble down In Kansas through a railroad mishap, and came to Omaha on Monday more or less disfigured. It was Impossible to Install the scenlo paraphernalia of the organisation In time for Monday night, and an Impromptu sec ond part was added to the program. On the other appearances the spectacular ora torio of "The Resurrection" was carried out to the satisfaction of large crowds. Mr. Qlllan expressed himself as well pleased with the results of the week, un der the circumstances. As to the street fair, the figures published elsewhere are with heart Interest from beginning to end. No play of Its kind possesses a stronger plot or more sensational Incidents. The serious element Is mingled with comedy, forming a combination that never falls to touch a responsive chord In the hearts of playgoers. For two nights and Wednesday matinee, starting Tuesday night, "The Hand of Man' will be the attraction at the Krug theater.

This exeellenco surely added greatly to the en joyment of the plays, and It would be hard to convince anyone that their artistic beauty or literary merit was in the lesst detrocted front by the presence of the painted canvas or the rich draperies used. Coming; Ktntn. Walker Whiteside will produce "We Are King," by Lieutenant Gordon Kean of Eng land, at the Poyd theater on Sunday after noon and on Sunday, Monday and Wednes day evenings. Mr. Whiteside accepted the play upon reading the first act and the senarlo of the second and third acts, and agreed to produce It In conjunction with his repertoire of Shakespearean rlays.

Tiff Faff Pour? B. C. Whitney's gorgeous musical production, direct from Its phenomenal run of eight months at the New York Casino, is one of the offer ings next week at the Boyd. It has been termed a musical cocktail, which seems a befitting description. The entertainment Is bright, snappy, lively and kaleidoscopic, and la calculated to dispel the blues. Mr. Whitney's principals this season consist ot Fred W. Mace. Kathryn Osterman, R. E. Graham, Mindell Kingston, Walter H. Clux ton, Dorothy Maynard, Harry Stuart, Eveleen Dunmore, John W. Morld, Mae Ellwood, James Devlin, Lisle Bloodgnod and others. Including the great pony bal let, the greatest octette of dancing girls In the world, and the American Beauty chorus. - The bill selected for horse show week at the Burwood la one quite appropriate, for that In a magatlne published in the inter ests nf a theatrical firm, when nearly every dramatic critic in New Tork has a beard of some sort. Colonel Savaaa has started this yrar badly. Both Easy lawsn and the Had Samaritan have proven bitter dlsaapolnt-m-nts The failure of the latter play has forced him to put the Bangs Klein Opera In the O.'irden theater Instead of at Wnllncks .and the move has brought about a severance of the friendly feelings between the management of Wnllacks theater and Mr. Savage, through which It la russlhle no more Savage attarctlons will be booked at that theater. Miss Nella Bergen has decided to retire from vaudeville after completing the en- fagements already made by her munager, lenrv B. Harris, who Intends to present her at the head of her own company In a new romantic opera by Stanislaus Stange and John Philip Sousa. Miss Bergen found the task of singing three operatic srlos twice a day to be more of a strain than she had anticipated and will enjoy a brief vacation until rehearsals of the opera for It will be presented In January Instead of April, as previously announced. The fact that Henry H. Harris has se cured the dramatic rights of Sir Gilbert Parker's "Pierre and His People" stories has given rise to the report that Mr. Ede son was to abandon William C. de Milie's play of "Strongheart," In which he has soored the greatest success of his career. Mr. Edeson will continue In "Strongheart" for the season of l!06-i and for the first half of 1HWJ-07 Mr. Harris In purchasing the rights of "Pierre and His People" is simply f( Mowing Ms policy In having a sup ply of available material for the use of his etsr. One of the Important bookings announced by the management of Boyd's theater calls for the appearance hern in a few weeks of the Kirk I Shell production of Paul Arm strong's new comedy. "The Heir to the Hoorah." This play made a unique record In New York last season, being the only dramatic attraction of the winter season that survived the summer weather. At the Hudson theater It ran blissfully along to big houses long after every other ploy In town had succumbed to the Influence of the rising thermometer.

When It Is drawn out to the ex tent that children and mother race back u rid forth across the stags twice or three times to embrace each other and be torn apart, all the time screaming and railing to each other, the effect drops from pathos perilously close to bathos. The evident effort to enlist tha sympathy of the auditor beyond the point already assured is such as to rather turn the thought In the other direction, and the revulsion nearly brings laugh where tears are demanded.
