"The Battle Hymn of the Republic"

theatre. This is one of the very finest
alma that has ever been cast upon a
screen in this city. It Bhould be seen

scene is shown good, old, Abe Lincoln
as he slty worrying over war matters
and wondering where he will get the
necessary troops with which to re
cruit his army, when Julia Ward Howe
enters the president's apartments. Lin
coln tells her his troubles. That night
the poet while asleep, rose and wrote
the famous war song that will go rin
ging down in ages as one of the most
inspiring battle ' sons that pen has
ever written. The beautiful part of
the film now comes In, showing .the
wonderful scenes depleted by the In
spired sleeping poet. As each verse is
written the colered ' transformation

The Storjr of the Play.
"Baby Mine," unlike many a bo
called fun play, gets hold of the fun-
ny bone of its audience at the very
outset and proceeds to tickle it for two
and a half hours, not moderately, nor
modestly, but boisterously and stren
uously, until the audience fairly shouts
with glee. ; A you,ng married couple
are quarreling at the very beginning
of the performance. In a towering
rage, the young husband leaves the
house and ' remains away for three
months after which period the clever
young wife makes up her mind that
woman's ingenuity should be suffi
cient to bring back her wandering bet
ter half. The wife consults a friend
who opines that the wife wire the ab
sent husband . that he is the proud
father of a lusty infant, and the friend
volunteers to hire a baby for the oc
casion. A child is secured for the
nurnose. but the husband appears on

Last night at the Isis Musical Direc
tor King scored another hit by putting
on the duet "You Can't be a Friend
to everybody," from the opera '.'Honey
Moon.' The rendering of the Bong
as interpreted by 'Miss Nellie Garrtek
and Mr. Ferrln was beyond criticism
and received the unstinted acclimation
of the audience. These catchy duets
at the I sis is making a hit with the
public, most of whom appreciate a
good thing in this line.
"Laugh and grow fat." This Is the
universal, opinion "of everybody who
has seen Win. A. Brady's play of a
thousand laughs, "Baby Mine," the
product of Margaret Mayo's pen, which
will be seen here for the first t'rae ac
the Steward opera house on Satu'-day,
This is just the sort of a play to
J turn tears into laughter, and to lvs
: life a rosy hue so sayeth one of Eng
land's most famous critics, -where
"Baby Mine" is now running at Sir
Charles Wyndham's Crlterfan theatre,
the house. In the meantime the real
mother of the baby is seized with re
morse, and demands, her child back.
Again the friend rushes off to get an
other baby and it is in the subsequent
complications incident to the arrival
and rescue of this child that the com
plications take on an amazingly amus
ing aspect, with never a suggestion of
a letup. Throughout the entire three
acts the fun of "Baby" Is of the clean,
wholesome, cheerful sort, with never
the least bit of suggestiveness to mar
the enjoyment of the performance. .
Manager Brady has sent to th's city
most of the company that played
"Baby Mine" in New York all of last
season.' "' ' '
