It seems somewhat odd to ascribe popu larity to Hiakespcare. but It Is the most expressive word to be Used In connection with the engagements of K. H. Sothern and Julia Marlowe, who are to be seen at the Brnndels thenter on Thursdny, I'riday and Saturday. Wherever these stais appear they Invariably draw crowded houses, and the enthusiasm or their audiences Is boundless. What mod ern plays cannot do In the way of at tracting the crowds, these three-ccnturlos old dramas of Shakespeare accomplish with ease. Much of the furore Is oc casioned, Undoubtedly, by the person alities of the two chief plHyers. They are actors of most Ingratiating type, nnd the nudlencen get glimpses of their charming Individualities, no mntter what parts they play. Aside from this, there Is a sincerity about their work, nnd ambition which never cools, and these qualities, too. are apparent and have their effect This season they have re vived, magnificently, "Much Ado About Nothing," and this Shakespearean com edy of flashing wit nnd gentle senti ment has been heartily welcomed. With this addition to their former repertoire, they have eight plays. Tho production cost them $35,000. Omaha theater-goers will no doubt be Interested in knowing that tho Universal Animated Weekly ot current events, which Is shown at the Hippodrome on Thursday, Friday and Saturday of- each week, will contain pictures of the burn Ing of Swift's Ice house a short time ago.

In this play she Is making her friends rcjolre that she has turned again to light comedy. The performance Is unusually fine. For next week "Tho Chorus Lady" Is In preparation. T. Roy Barnes, at the 'Orpheum this week, in "A Fakir and a lady." says that his sketch is based on fncts in his own life. When he was a young man, he went about the country taking orders for a furniture polish, and In his, travels he kept a note book In which he jotted clown everything funny that happened. "I had many funny experiences," said Mr. Barnes. "One in particular stnnds out In my memory. 1 was going along a pretty country road one afternoon In April when a woman came running out of a house nnd grabbing mo vby the sleeve, said, 'Oh' doctor do hurry up. John Is so sick. I um afraid he Is going to die.' " "I tried to explain that I was only a furniture polish agent, but tho woman wouldn't listen to a word I said; she Just pulled mo Into tho house and told me to give John some medicine quick. I took out my stove polish and told John, who I could seo was not seriously sick' that 1 had a medicine which would re lieve him at once. I carefully put some polish on his wrists and told him to get up and wnlk. Well, It worked like a charm. In a fuvv minutes the young fellow was feeling much better. Then I took my departure before the real doctor arrived."

Tlkiir Met A pari. The committees of the senate and housp have agreed to set aside two hours to the hearing to bo held Friday night. Labor and the Inwyers already have been given a hearing beforo too committees. The workmen's compensation and em ployers' llnbtlliy bill, which those dele gates will advocate for passage Is con tained In tho minority report of the com mission nppolnted by the stato govern ment In 1911 to frame such nn net. It was said at the meeting this bill Is equally fair to labor and the employers and tho only ono which Is favored by all sides concerned except tho lawyers. Guy Cramer declared that the lawyers had announced their intention ot opposl.u: a compensation act and If ono were passed they would organize to put It to u referendum vote of the peoplo for re peal. "The bill which tho lawyers favor." he said, "takes away tho three defenses of tho employer the assumption of risk, negllgenco of fellow servant nnd ncgllgenco of employe and would make for vastly moro litigation In damngo suits than now obtains." fioinr UIH to I'nM. F. I. Klllck said It was certain that some kind of employers' liability or work, men's compensation net would be passed by the present leglslntuie. The bill which would make compensation compulsory, ugreed upon by the majority of the state commission of which ho was ons, he said, will have too much opposition from tho farmers und others; stnto In surance is nut feasible and the bill pat terned nfter tho Washington law Is class legislation ami couiu do proven uncon stltutionnl; nnd so ho had come to favor tho bill advised by tho minority of the state commission. Mr. Klllck said that any kind of com pensation act would mean two and a halt times tho Insurance rates which employ ers pay now nnd wfll Increase the num ber of reports of Injuries in Nebraska as has been proven the effect tn other states and countries where It exists. But somo kind of bill Is going to bo passed, ho re peated, and tho minority of the sta'o commission proposed the beBt law for both the employer and employe. Tho delegation will nsk Its passage with such' modifications na aro necessary. Key to tho Situation Beo Advertising.
