that it has been closed on account of
a few cases of smallpox appearing

this probably will make participation
in the Festival impossible.

IIS Jerry," the comedy by Catherine
Chisholm Cusliing, In which Miss
Billie Burke will he seen ai the
Heilig Theater, Broadway at Taylor,
three nights beginning tonight, 8:15,
with a special matinee Saturday,
Charles Frohman's popular young star
has realized a long-clrerished ambi
tion. In this piece Miss Burk imper
sonates an American girl for the first
time and it is also the first play of
American manufacture in which she
Miss Burke is an American girl her
self, being born at Washington, B, C,
and she is proud of the fact. Conse
quently she always has wanted to play
an American girl on the stage. Mr.
Frohman promised her soon after she
became a star that he would give her
an American role to play just as quick
ly as he could find a suitable one.
Somehow or other, though, they didn't
seem to be writing that kind of a part.
At last Mrs. Cushlng brought Mr.
Frohman the manuscript of "Jerry."
She had written It, she told him, ex
pressly for Miss Burke, having heard
of the actress' desire to impersonate
an American heroine. Mr. Frohman
sat right down and read the play. Then
he telegraphed Miss Burke that he had
found the American play for her. He
put it into rehearsal immediately and
four weeks later Miss Burke appeared
in it in New York at the Lyceum The
ater and scored an enormous success.
The New York verdict was contirmed
in Chicago a little later and this sea
son on tour .Miss Burke has been doing
"standing room only" business right
along. A grand opera company would
rejoice If its receipts footed up as high
as Miss Burke's have In "Jerry."
The supporting company here will
include Shelly Hull, Selene Johnson,
Alice John. H. Lawrence Leyton, Will
iam H. Sams, Thomas Reynolds, Edwin
Burch and Arthur Hurley.

In the race for business many firms buy shoes which
"LOOK LIKE" high-grade shoes, copying the lasts,
styles,, etc., so that to the average citizen they LOOK
LIKE good shoes.
It is only after they are worn that the difference
is discovered, for such shoes soon lose their shape
and often, cause burning-, aching feet.
Many of these shoes are stitched on the inside an3,
in order to deceive the public, a covering is pasted over
these stitches, but after being worn that covering will
not prevent the stitches chafing the feet.
This firm will not sell such shoes. Only high-grade
welt shoes are sold by us, as we sell SHOE SATIS
FACTION in every sense of the word and our estab
lished trade has been secured by giving the public the
BEST SHOES MADE for the money.
We maintain that the CELEBRATED HANAN SHOE
is THE CHEAPEST SHOE ANY MAN OR WOMAN
CAN POSSIBLY BUY, although the first cost is higher
than many others. They have stood the testifor over
fifty years. Try a pair.
Ask the man or woman who wears them.
