Haiif Nix In "The Telephone Olrl" was another j maiiii VTCOlliin. rt nan i ur Oi l;inai Frans Hoehstuhl in "All on Account of Ellia," n deliKhtfully quaint role thn' added greatly to Ms reputation. Ills PI ft FHnsloo In "The Red Kloof," coming a the time of the Voer war and typifying the Boer character .attracted a giea' deal vt attention. In t'lai-a Llpnmn play of '"Julie Bon-r.on," In which husbar.d ed wife Jointly starred, ha created the role of Poujol, which waa credited with being one of the most remarkable charac ter dcllnaUona ever coin on the Amerlcar stage. In Iwondcn, where the pluy wa.' produced subseeiuent to its presentation in America ,the critics disliked the play but conceded that the character of Poujol waa murvelously conceived ant1 acted. Mr. Mann's Von TValden In ."The Sec ond Kiddle" was a notable achievement. The baron was a lovable character am' his German dialect was delightful. Two years ago Mr. Mann visualized Hit character cf John Krauae, the old watch maker In "Tho Man Who Stood Ptlll." and last season ho mado known the mli of aottfrled Plltteradorf In "The Cheater.". Both of these characters were drawn with the keen and analytical rlc.ll' of a great artist. With the exception of Baron Von Walden, Mr. Mann has In recent years devoted himself largely tc the characterisation of old men. In "Elevating a Husband" his latest play, which he makes known at the Brandeir this week, he again assays the role of young man, and his success l said to be such. as would be expected from an actor of his vailed experience and acknowl edged versatility. Mr. Mann really made his start In the theatrical profession's a "barnstormer." The experience wss 1 valuable, but fre quently painful and detrimental to the artistic Impulse. In tho first, semi-amateur "lroup" with which he waa associated as a callow youth, the meagre company presented "Camllle," and even attempted Shakespeare. Young Mann played every thing from Armand to Hamlet. , On one oocaslon the "troupe" repeated they wish to attend. t end imany object to ticket speculation.' The Btudebaker theater Is one of the few In Chicago that has tried to do away with ticket speculation, and Is using this method to reach out-of-town patrons. It Is a pleasure and a privilege to herald the coming of such an organization as Miner's Americans, which will be the at traction at the Krpg theater for the week beginning with usual Sunday mstlnee. Miner's Americans this season offer a bigger and better entertainment than, ever before. They offer three burlettaa In stead ot the usual one or two, and, in addition, an olio of good vaudeville acts of the first water. The burlettas to be presented here for ths first time are "The Bong Hits of the Reason," "The Little Blonde Man" and "A Country DON'T FAIL TO SEE ALL VARIETIES REPRESENTED Many Never Before Seen in the United States Band Concert Every Evening 7:30 to 10; Also MOVING PICTURES Special Exhibits of Interest To All Qrevvn-Ups Should See This Show; NO CHILD SHOULD MISS IT.

The play was "Camllle." and Mr. Mann was play ing his favorite, role of Armand. Kvery thtng went along swimmingly (ur time. In one of I lie most effective scenes, how ever, a mule, which had been corralled in a stall, under the bum floor. Rave mi unearthly bray. The gravity of the scone was lost, and the audience began to snlKger. This served to atlr tu mule to further efforts, and It brayed and kicked against tho stall like a mud beast! The farmer, who had conscientious scruples agaltiat play-acting, but not against barn rental, was not present, but a boy was hurriedly Sent to the house tJ get hlni. lle camo running over to the barn. Visibly excited. A hurried .examina tion of the mule convjnoed him that the mule was sick. The jierformance had been struggling alyhg, but the farmer stopped It. "You'll have to get. out of hereevery one of you," he said, "the mule'a sick and needs attention, and that mule Is worth twice as much to me as you play actors. And so t hey . vacated the barn, with "Cumllle" stt 111 'an hour and a half shy of her harrowing death scene. The audi ence, however, waa more generous than the farmer. Thy kindly permitted the "troupe" to keep the. reclpts. ' School." A big feature with Miner's Americana Is tho chorus a group of twenty pretty girls who can sing and dance as well as look striking enough to be called a bunch of real "American Beauties." Miss Margaret Flavin, a stellar prima donna, lured from the legiti mate stage by Mr. Miner, has the le-tullng feminine roles with the organisation.; She Is a striking beauty, accomplished In all the stagn arts and possessed ot an inti mate personality. Miss Flavin was last seen here In "A Knight for a Ifty," In whic h she was oatnred for three seasons. Another legitimate tago favorite with thn Americans Is ans Heed, thn diminu tive IJIIputlan comedian. In support of these artlKts are such well known people as Joe Burton. MIhs Louie Rice, Fred C.

It was. written by Rutland Houghton and It dealt with the redemption of music Jn England through tho Influence of the, masses. "They are the only people .whose emotions are not distorted by unhealthy conditions." He further states that he ha fotind many examples "of deep and seV rlotis Interest , In' mush: on the part of artisans and others who make upiu"U masses" In England. "Compared Vlth these realities. Covent Garden Is a toy shop and the musical "at-home an'after noon nap.". Here endelh the. saying of-Mr. Bough ton. Musical America then goes on to re mark some wise and sage things. If says "Great muslo Is not produced by the at tempt to conform to, or 'to set, ' culture standards. It Is produced by compelling creative force. This torre Is generated, or more properly Induced by a Need. Where there Is no need to compose, there can be no great music. Musical America then proceeds to ask "How does this need arise?" And that question, while It hail been well answered by thn editor ot that paper, won answered by a still greater person many years ago. You remember those compelling lines of Itulph Waldo Emerson: "By doing his work, he makes the need felt whirl he can supply. He creates the taste by w."ch t.e Is enjoyed.
