Nichols' name stands for versa tility, or possibly vivacity. In one of her new songs it stands for Vamp. It's her opening song, done in a wicked green clinging dress which slithers around Nellie's plump fig ure, while she waves a flock of green ostrich plumes and sings of the par ticular variety of vamp she is. A philanthropical vamp, a holder of the scales of justice, a worker of the law of adjustment vampire is Nellie, who warbles that she takes gifts and money from her men victims and then gives it all to their individual wives. It creates a great laugh, the way the sparkling Nichols sings it. Another of her new Impersonations is an Ital ian Bill Hart, who stabs his rival, lassoes the heroine fejid gallops off on a bucking pinto, all very realistically told by Miss Nichols with a red scarf bringing out the animation and color in her face. She waj-e other things, too, of course, but features the neck scarf. She sings that "Dancing at the Movie Pitcher Ball" a little better than we've heard it before, and has one perfectly, dandy Nellie Nichols song which she dos capitally. It's a hymn of "1 -should-worry" tn which she sets out her indifference to the threatened leave-taking of her "man." "Just you wait," she warbles and sings of the cellar to which he has had the key" and which now will be given to a new man she has in pros pect. Other desira'iiC possessions she enumerates to him. clothing each one with a delightful Tll-get-even note which is irresistibly funny and so l uman the audience ri.rs. Miss Nich ols is always interesting and most generous in her offerings. She has a radiant smile and her diction Is so I of a film foundry she rehearses with Hippodrome. EVERT act on the new bill at the Hippodrome is of merit and holds interest from beginning to end. Two musicians, Coscia and Verdi,' one of whom is a dead ringer for King Alphonso of Spain, walk away with popularity plaudits. One of the twain plays a violin and his partner pulls tunes out of a big cello. Together they weave a spell of har mony and collect applause." For an encore they gave a very fine inter pretation of "Dardanella." In be tween selections they put pleasant comedy and the cellist proves de lightful pantomimist. The terpsichore Four have an ex cellent dancing act. Stone and Man ning are the two clever men dancers whose team action is perfect in time and rhythm, and whose steps are new. The girls In the specialty are the two Kashner sisters, rapid - fire dancers. The act is handsomely staged and sustains constant sur prises. One of the boys whistles de lightfully, and all in the act sing pleasingly. Tom Davies, a capital character actor, sponsors a sketch which is a domestic one-act farce called "Check mate." A wife joins a union of house wives and when her demands are not met she declares a strike and walks out. Her resourceful and hungry husband sends for a strikebreaker and when the wife drops in to laugh she remains to create a riot. The lines are clever, the situations amus ing and the sketch is well enacted. Lex Neal is a clever chap of comedy attainments and Billie Stewart is a Theda Bara type who dresses, nearly, in a black satin skirt and shoulder straps and vamps around. In front ood that no matter where you sit, you can know wha, the is singing or saying. She has a very genuine gift for comedy and her characterizations are natural with no- resort to make up or wigs or even change of costume. A clever entertainer is Bert Hanlon, who has a brilliant introductory bit about not using tlia flag, or a mother song, or a reference to the president or the soldiers to .itt him "your kind applause" and then proceeds to sing a song which incorporates them all, which bit of whimsicality naturally sets every one laughing. We keep it up while Bert goes on to chat about things in general. His best bit is a passionate declaration of loathing for the meek and gentle olive, and as verse succeeds ver.e the audience waxes hysterical it's so utterly silly and di-fferent. Bert is' original in his eccentrici ties and develops an intimacy in his chat with various spectators which adds to his popularity You could call 15 mi I and Willie's act "quite a spectacle," for the spec tacle is a giant pair of nose-glasses, balanced astride a pillar. Willie gets in one circle and Emil in the other, and the things they do! Hair-raising acrobatics, posing and in one in stance so cleverly balancing each other that the huge specs make an entire revolution with Willie and Emil holding on only by the soles of their feet. In the last excitement they whirl in rapid revolution to an accompaniment of applause. Earl Cavanaugh is featured in a melange of melody set to steps and conversation called "Bast Night." in which a hotel keeper, his wife, a friend and his fiancee and the fiancee's father each have spent the preceding evening elsewhere than the places they mention when they get together. With this as an excuse for the plot activities develop. A quartet of cabaret girls is introduced to lend atmosphere to the grill scene. Cava naugh does some very really clever odds and ends and a cutie girl, Anna Francis. dances delightfully. Earl Miller dances too. The climax has a diverting moment when the hotel man Cavanaugh is closing up shop after the others and his wife have left, the wife de claring it is her "night out." The maid comes in with the darlingest real baby, and announces that it's her "night out." The baby takes a bow, surrounded by the company. Jack Baxley is a good character actor. Made up as an old man he stops by a doorway to listen to a melody played by .Lillian Porter. At her invitation he comes in and they talk of old songs and the modern ones. The old man loves the old ballads best and sings one. Then the student, Neal, and results achieve much laughter and applause. One of the most interesting acts in many bills is the opening number in which a group of plain, ordinary cats, sleek and well fed and pros perous looking, go through a lot of smart tricks alongside a flock ' of rats gray, sleek rodents. The event is a truly remarkable and sensational exhibition of animal sagacity. The act is offered by Swain, who puts his pets through a myriad of feats solely by petting them. The act evi dences kindness and patience on the part of Mr. Swain, the trainer, and the animals frolic around happily. A boxing match between two cats provoked a riot of applause. The photo feature is a big one. Clara Kimball Young, who has a big following, plays the role of Trilby in George u Maurier's play of that name. The story is faithful to the text and preserves the interest exceedingly. Me n! Here! As New As Your' Newspaper She was taken to the police emer- 1 Lillian docs a modern one.

ARTISTS, cafe waiters and heiresses 'are presented in clever comedy and amusing situations in the Lyric's latest offering, "The Merry Whirl," which will be the attraction all this week. Latest songs, including the popular "Just Like a Gipsy," are sung and the costumes worn by the rosebud chorus are unusually pretty. The plot of the comedy revolves around the funmakers. Mike Dooley, a spendthrift wine salesman, and Ike Leshinski. billed this week as the head butler of the artist prince, played by Carlton Chase. In addi tion to being a great persuader, Mike is also a talented hypnotist, and as soon as the ctrtain rises he influ ences his old friend, Ike, to obey him. Mimi, played by tjie prima donna, Dorothy Kaymond, is cast as the wife of Lord Byron, an English nobleman. who is most anxious to rid himself of her presence. Little Billie Bing ham is in love with the price, as is Mimi. Action of the comedy is fast and furious and is featured by the witty dialogue of Mike and Ike, who take a hand in the settlement of all and sundry love difficulties which arise in the course of the play. Of course, after everyone has chosen his future wife from the number of pret ty girls in the "Whirl." the play ends with a surprising twist in the climax. The musical numbers sung were: "When We Went to Sunday School," by Billie Bingham', Clarence Wur dig and chorus ;-"It's an Old-Fash- ioned Garden," by Carlton Chase and chorus: "Since I First Met You," Will Rader and company; "The Old Folks at Home," Dorothy Raymond, and "Just Like a Gipsy," by Clarence Wurdig and chorus. Those who have important parts in the cast this week are Ben F. Dillon, Al Franks, Will Rader, Carlton Chase, Dorothy Raymond. Billie Bingham, Madeline Mathews and Clarence Wurdig.
