the Lord's masterpiece and the cham-
ntn tiiver of the world and way points.
Instead of which she branches out and
l'jrns a flock of accomplishments, any
ne of which would be an achievement
and a career for the average woman.

by the same measurements as her akin,
and iievlls away on and off a high
fining board, leaping through space
no the cool-looking pool and playing
around Ilka a lady fish on a holiday.
All dripping wet she flashes out of
the tank, runs up the painted steps
and poises for a brief moment, a
f i hourtte of carmine, topped by a smil
ing face, and then she Jackknlfes or
fomersaulta clean as a whistle straight
Into the water, grinning like an implsn
bov throurh the glass at her audience.
Miss Kellermnn's act would be a dis
tinct noveltv if ahe did only the div-
.t. she is herself an Individual of
Importance and her diving is exquisite.
j;ut she makes it even more unusual
and entertaining by adding her other
ventures and a pleasant personal chat
to atrlng along her appearances. In
between times there's a trio of heel
tappers shea brought along. Kerr and
MeMon. a man and an adorable blonde
b4by girl with funy hair and a mad
little body that swirls and leaps and
joes rraiy with dancing.
Jack Coogan. with extremely thin
lgs. does a clever caricature dance

In .Mi. -s Kellennan's act.
Jnfrest centers about fifty-fifty on

Leiiic kind to your husband because
good men are scarce nowadays. . and
the dips her kneea and tosses her head
and roils her eyes until the audience
oould eat out of her hands. One bal
lad, -oh. How She Could Sing" and "I'm
a Jais Baby." are expressive of Miss
Young herself. Another, a wop study
M m da Boss." Is delightful.
The nicest thing about both Miss
Young's singing and Mr. Greene's Is
their excellent diction. Tou don't have
to struggle to hear what they're say
ing, and that's soiuethlng. Mr. Greene
has a smiling, friendly way. he's all
pep and hla songs come over like a
Niagara, with point and melody a-plenty,
lie tells stories, darky stories after he
has made up in ebony In front of his
audience. He docs a clever Chinese

The bill closes with an unusual turn
In which Brodeau manipulatea a beau
tiful little shite dog. Silver Moon,
quite as If the animal had no bones.
P. s. There will be no show on
Wednesday night.
A VERSATILE and clever trio are the
Anders sisters, who vie for head
line place with King A Thornton on
the Hippodrome bill this week. The
Anders sisters have an excellent offer
ing In songa and dancing, adding con
siderably to their entertainment by
their lightning change of costumes,
done before the audience. The act la
well ataged and the girls' costumes are
dainty and effective. One of the sis
ters does a "Yama Tama'' dance and
pontomine In an artistic costume, and
a peppy, acrobatic dance by the two
smaller sisters closes the clever act.
In "The Village Priest." . in which
Virginia Thornton and Charles King
star, assisted by Victor Donald,
there is a keen appeal to Irish
good nature and wit. Father Donovan
has a bubbling, good humor that even
tually breaka through the gloom of
Mary Logan and her fiance. Johnny
Murphy, occasioned by a spirited quar
rel due to Mary's aspirations for a pub
lic career. She enters merrily without
knocking, in the garb of a suffragette,
and soon starts "knocking" poor John
ny until his peppery temper explodes.
Father Donovan, a character wel por
trayed by Charles King, laughs them
Into good-natured reconciliation.
The closing number on the bill Is one
of the best acts on the list. The Artois
trio proclaim without a doubt that
there Is a good bit of monkey in all
humanity. Theirs Is the simon-pure
kind, and they demonstrate the fact
freely with their novel stunts on the
bars Their pantomime Is side-splitting,
and the 4J white ruffles adorn
ing their snow-white suits add to their
The Crawfords. one a plump little
maid, evidently not as heavy as she
looks, and the other a clever young
chap, present many unique and new
stunts on the tight rope in "A Bit of
Everything." They have a dash of
song, patter and tumbling.
Bessie Clifton is very clever In "The
Village Cut-L"p." her impersonation of
a country maid, together with her
songs and stories, - scoring a big hit
with the audience.
Dainty, peppy, Titian-haired Lea
Francis and her partner, George Hume
have a good offering In "Just Happen
ings." In which they sing a bit, josh
each other, dance a bit and give a gen
erous bunch of clever dialogue.
The photoplay has the popular fVlll
lam Desmond as the star, and its title,
"The Prodigal Liar." Is evidence of the
numerous intricate situations in which
the heroine and her co-workers find
themselves. She Is a young maid with
a mad desire for romance and adven
ture, and she gets more than she an
ticipated inr her wildest dreams. The
scenic beauty of the play appeals to
easterner and westerner alike, and it
abounds with action.
L FRANKS as Ike Leeehinsk!
brought forth one of the best
musical comedies yet staged at the
I.rlc theater when "Cherry Blossoms"
opened f r the week yesterday after
noon. Ike had a beautiful daughter
w ho was in love with a young man who
was as "poor as Job's turkey." Ike
bad a lot of money, but he didn't want
to part with It.
His only falling was the desire to
rave women make "eyes" at him. and
then he was tree to confess that he
waa an easy mark. Harry Bright.
played by Jewell I -a Velle. fixed it up
with Ike to meet the daughter, but he
did it In such a way that Ike did not
know that it waa his daughter he was
making love to.
Finally Harry won the girl, and then
telegraphed back to 'the old man' for
bts congratulations. Just before Harry
bad left Ike said that he would like
to see the man that could slip over
anything on him. He was shown.
The musical Interruptions were pleas
ing, but the big number was the at
tempted "Hitchey. Kltchey. Hula. Hula
dance put on by Billy Bingham. It
was a riot, and she had to dance it
four times before the audience would
almw the show to proceed.
The opening chorus of "Rosebuds'
sang "When the Fighting Irish Come
Home. "And That Am t All and "Any.
thing Is Nice If it Comes from Dixie
land." Billy Bingham and chorus were
featured In "Dixie Is Dixie Once More
while "Jerry" was the selection by
which Dot Raymond made such a de
nrtrd hit.
"Lm-la hammy. Here s My Share was
sung by Jewell La Velle. who brought
out the victory liberty loan by exhlbit
Irfs: one of State Director John L..Eth
ertdge's now famous "V" posters.
"Salvation Rose" was the means of
the chorus and Jewell La Velle to make
a good showing. La Velle sang on a
moment'a notice, Ben Broderick having
bern scheduled to sing but was taken
l'l. "Cherry Blossoms" will remain as
this weeks attraction at the Lyric
Next week will be "Wixard of Wise
land." ,
OT STEWART, heralded as one of
the f teel-nerved daredevils of film
dom, waa featured In "The Silent Rider,'
which opened yesterday afternoon a
the Strand theater. Cowboys, cattle
rustlers and all that go with them
made their appearance during the dis
play of the film and several pistol
fights which resulted "fatally" for
those opposed to Roy kept the audi
ence in suspense.
A cattleman of Wyoming had com
plained to the authorities that his
cattle were being stolen, but the sheriff
of the county said that he was without
help. Roy Stewart, as a stranger, made
his appearance on the farm and lmm.
dlately got acquainted with the owner
and hla daughter. Ethel Fleming. He
rode the "worst" horse on the place
and did other remarkable feats and
discovered who was rustling the cows.
t was the foreman of the place and
Just before the film ended Stewart
was revested as a "detective."
The Lucy Lucier trio gained Tnuch
prominence yesterday afternoon with
their songs. Lucy Lucier, Van Lucier
and Ellsworth made up the trio and
Lucy has a deep voice to carry her
share of the singing.
A character sketch, "The Custom
Officer and a Wop." by Sonora and
Webb, brought out some new lines and
they made a decided hit. '
Wlllisch and Anita managed to re
ceive a big hand in their comedy Jug
gling act. Wlllisch tossed everything
around on the stage from tin pans to
playing cards and occasionally he re
vealed the method of performing the
stunt. Anita came before the foot
lights In a series of clever poses.
The Del Monte brothers were tum
blers of ability.
TO Alice Fleming; and Edward
Everett Horton fall the honors of
"The Trap," this week's attraction at
the Alcazar theater. Honors in "The
Trap." a cleverly written melodrama
by Richard Harding Davis and Jules
Eckert Goodman, do not fall easily.
They eomo only as the result of tech
nique and genuine understanding.
With the spirit of the Yukon for the I
first act and the millionaire atmos- I
phere of the "great white way" for the
tnree remaining acts, this week s at- TA
traction offers a universal appeal. I r.
Blackmail Is the motive of the theme
which centers about, the threatened
happiness of a woman and the desDer-
ate loneliness of a man of fine caliber.
The woman. Jane Carson, as she is
known in the Yukon where she taught
school, and later, Mrs. William Graham,
wife of a prosperous New Yorker, is
portrayed by Miss Fleming. The part
of a man who stakes and wins millions
but not happiness is played by Mr.
Horton. -
As Jane Carson Graham, Miss Flem
ing enters into the gambling spirit of
the Yukon. Her portrayal of that role
shows her quick understanding of the
pioneer life which caused people to
play for big stakes, and losing to hold
on and win. Her work does not savor
of the cheap melodramatic. By her
quiet, forceful personality she brings
to the audience the maximum emotion
In her scenes, yet in no way does she
lessen her own dignity by over
emphasis. In Ned Fallon, Impersonated by Mr.
Horton, the American audience sees its
Ideal. It sees a man big enough to
acquire large winnings and yet main
tain his own unpretentious personality.
"Mr. Fallon has a way of seeing things
through" to quote a line of the au
thor particular credit Is due Mr.
Horton for his work during the third
act when with no overplay of mystery
he keeps the audience in the dark, and
cleverly devises the passing of a use
less citizen In such a way that the
lives, reputation and happiness of in
nocent persons are saved and he him
self is cleared.
Henry Carson, a gambler to whom
the possibilities of the Yukon and Wall
street hold like thrill and attraction, is
a delightful character under the por
trayal of Smith Davics. His work Is
consistent, and whether in serious or
comedy lines Is pleasing. Mr. Davics,
with Miss Marie Curtis, who plays the
part of Jane Carson's younger sister,
furnish the comedy of "The Trap"
which is necessary to bring balance
between the more emotional scenes.
Vaughan Morgan, as usual, has the
unpleasant part of playing the villian
which he does with apparent gusto and
In the role of the happy husband,'
James Guy-Usher won much applause.
His evident sincerity and interest add
much to his presentation of William
Graham, the husband of Jane Carson.

Don't Enter Politics Is Advice to
Young Men.

Adams of A.lamosa. who served the
people of Co'lorado in the legislature

and later in the senate.
Adams was an expert on parliamen
tary law and this knowledge helped
him through many a hard-fought fight
on the odor of the legislature. In his
own opinion his greatest battle was
the one which ended in the last elec
tion of the late H. M. Teller to the
United States sense. By quick thought
and application of an obscur parlia
mentary rule Senator Adams, then be
longing to the minority wing, seized
control of the senate when the presi
dent left the chamber, taking wha he
called "the rump senate" with him.
Adams will not talk of himself or
of his stewardship.
"I made a rule early In my public
life." he said, "to watch, to listen, to
learn, to keep quiet. 1 have adhered
to this rule and found it good."

Friendly Societies In China Said to
' Have Membership of. 2,000,000.
PEKIN. (Correspondence of the As
sociated Press.) Several secret socie
ties whose numbers aggregate millions
of persons are supporting the indepen
dence movement in Corea, it is under
stood. Notable among them are the
Progressive party and the Heaven Wor
shippers, which togethere have a mem
bership of more than 2.000,000 persons.
Others are the New Corean society and
the Light Restoring society. Sixty
thousand students of nearly all educa
tional institutions, including govern
ment schools, participated in the move
ment. It is stated that he insurrecion
was suppored also by Christian and
Buddhist bodies.
The Buddhists in Corea number about
1,000.000.- They have 2000 temples and
100.000 priests. The Japanese have at
tempted to use Buddhism to strengthen
their position in Corea, sending many
young priests to Japan to the educated.
Nevertheless, many Buddhists are be
lieved to have been closely connected
with the insurrection.
Christianity has made rapid progress
in Corea for 30 years. Two large mis
sionary bodies are working there. The
American Methodist mission has 750
churches and 100,000 followers, while
the American Presbyterian mission has
2000 churches and about 200,000 adher
ents. The Corean Christians are most
ly men of character and have received
higher education.
The demonstration In favor of Inde
pendence, which began in nearly all
towns and villages throughout Corea
on' March 1, was at first ordrely and
limited to the delivery of speeches and
distribution of copies of manifestos.
Later the movement took a distinctly
revolutionary character and this re
