"LOUISIANA LOU" IS COMING 1L V ' ' "X l't i - TWO Attractions, of a character widely divergent, will be staged at the Kcilfg this week. For the first four days Cathrlne Countiss will be seen in "The Awakening of Helena Richie." Charlotte Thompson's drama tization of Margaret Deland's fasci nating piece of fiction. From Thurs day onwards everybody will be sing ing "Lou. Lou, I Love You." or words to that effect, for "Louisiana Lou," the tensatlon of the Chicago La Salle 1911 J912 season, will be here. Musical comedy, of course. To follow Marguerite Anglin In one of her favorite characters is no mean task. To follow her successfully is an achievement of which any might be proud. Yet playgoers here need have no fear of Miss Countiss' ability to present- a characterization of Helena Richie. That it will differ materially from Margaret Anglin'3 version goes without saying, after witnessing her presentation of the slavey in "Merely Mary Ann." for Miss Countiss shuns the exact imitation of other stars, but that it will be in thorough accord with the creation of Margaret Deland they mav rest assured. It was in this play that Miss Countiss made her debut as a star at the Ma jestic in New York, a year ago last September, when all the critics hailed her as the worthy successor of Miss Anglln. Thursday night fun, melody, beauti ful maidens, and all the paraphernalia of the musical -comedy will be on the boards In "Louisiana Lou." Local patrons doubtless will flock to see the show In greater numbers when they know that Barney Bernard and Sophie Tucker will take the leading parts- Bernard was here eight years ago in the old Marquam Theater with his own play, and later in "Sleeping Beauty and the Beast." while every body knows the one and only Sophie. - U"or a Juggler to top the bill on any vaudeville stage, he must be an ex reptlon. To head the Orpheum bill, for the ' first time in history, too, W. C. Fietds, slelght-of-hand artist, silent humorist and complete funster, must be A remarkable man. His game of pool by himself, has been praised. "stffemat!zd," he would probably say, as a veritable classic in voiceless com edy. Interesting from a local point of view will be the playlet presented by MrsGene Hughes, a Forest Grove woman, who appears In "Youth," a comedietta built around a particular lystem of remaining perpetually young. The Latin Quarter of Paris will be the scene of the headliner at the: Em press. Six girls as models, who pose, dance and sing, and three artists, will be the performers in a miniature mu- ical comedv production owned by Bil lie Burke, and styled "Models of the Jardin of Parts." ' An extra .added attraction is Hugo Lutgens, a Swedish dialect comedian, in parson's clothing. ' Jewell's Manikins head the pro gramme offered this week for the ap proval of Pantages' patrons. Miss Lil lie Jewell has won praise at home and abroad for the marvelous scenic repro ductions these Manikins give. The '.'Death of Cleopatra" and other tab leaux are additional features of the act. The Peoples. Star and Arcade thea ters offer new bills of the latest films. MISS COUN'TISS IS AMIABLE Hellig Star Who Appears as Helena Ritchie Gives Way to Visitors. Catbrine Countiss. at the height of her success at the delightfully coo! Heiltg. amiably interrupts her season to give the melodies of "Louisiana Lou" a hearing the last half of this week. This condenses her- presenta tion of- "The Awakening of Helena Richie" Into four nights, commencing tonight, with bargain matinees on Tuesday and Wednesday. The extra matinee" of Tuesday is a positive ne cessity, for every woman has reveled In Margaret Deland's fascinating fic tion in book form, and the demand for matinee seats is unprecedented. "The Awakening of Helena Richie is a blend of comedy and emotion, with a gripping story of a woman who, cheated out of early happiness by the death of her parents and the brutality of a drunken husband, has taken hap piness as she found it. Helena, nominally a widow, has dropped into the quiet little Pennsyl vania Tillage, with its roses, its frank and peaceful atmosphere. Its conserva tive notions. To Old Chester, Mrs. Richie Is a widow of unknown ante cedents. She dresses smartly and uses much sachet powder; she knows noth ing of housework, but lolls lazily about upon cushions the while she reads French novels and consumes large sup plies of confectionery; she is at home to few callers and she makes no calls whatever. Her only link with the out side world, so far as Old Chester seess, 1s Lloyd Pryor, who. posing as her brother, is a frequent caller. Never does Old Chester learn that the re lationship is mythical. It is Old Chester in the early "0s the day of erlnoline and hoopskirts and waterfall coiffures and a quaint, old fashioned atmosphere hangs over and clings appealingly to the scene. The Inevitable moment comes when Helena Richie chooses between her love-and her happiness. In this instance she puts away her lover who deser-fls no better consideration rather than spoil the- life, of the waif child whom she has taken into her home and heart as a matter of charity and whose unfold ing life she has learned to worship with the love of a mother heart denied Its own. So the price is paid and so she comes at last into the promise and happiness of her womanhood as the refined product of the social crucible. Miss Countiss starred for an entire season as Helena, succeeding Margaret Anglln. Her success was great. It was a veteran New York critic who wrote: "Miss Countiss depicted the psychology of the character with the certain touch of an artist. This talented and magnetic woman has appearance, tem perament, grace, voice and rare Intelli gence, and no star has more." Sydney Ayres, a leading man of al tlnction. will visualize the heartless man of the world, with Roy Clements as the dear old village pastor; Henry Hall as the queer grandfather, Robert Lawler as the poetic boy, John C. Liv ingston and Claire Sinclair as the young doctor and his gossiping wife, Laura Adams as the housekeeper and the local child prodigy. Mayo Methot, as the strange little Doy, tavii, 10 whom Helena owes her spiritual re generation. Miss Countiss resumes ner season ai the Helllg August 11 in Clyde Fitch's sparkling society comedy, "The Girl With the Green Eyes." ORPHECJI . BILL ALL COMEDY Xoted Juggler and Humorist Fea tured Oregon Woman to Appear. At the Orpheum this week a sep tuple comedy bill will reign. Looming as headliner is W. C. Fields, a juggler of international note, who is on the poster as "The Silent Humorist." Fields does not utter a single word during the 10 minutes he holds the stage, but it Is written In his stage record that he keeps his audiences in continuous laughter, so ludicrous are his feats performed with commonplace articles. A feature of Fields' vaudeville enter tainment Is a pool game played all by himself. Fields has the distinction of being the first juggler In a long pe riod to headline an Orpheum bill. Next on the laughter programme Is Mrs. Gene Hughes, a former resident of Forest Grove, Or., who, with her company of four, will present "Youth, comedy written by Lagar Alien W'oelf. The playlet Is based on the reputed endeavor of all womankind to look young despite age and newspaper critics say it teems with laughter-provoking situations. Mrs. Hughes has been praised highly all along the Or pheum circuit for her portrayal of the rollicking grandmother. This Is Mrs. Hughes' third visit to Portland. On the two former occasions she appeared at the Orpehum with her husband in "Suppressing the Press." Venlta Gould, who is prociaimea to be blessed with youth and good looks. presides as the mimic on the first August bill. She apes stars of the stage world. Including Anna Held, Emma Trentinl. Madame Naximova ana George Cohan. Critics have praised Miss Gould s Impersonation or George Cohan as perfect. She goes through her vaudeville turn without profuse use of facial makeup, she uses no spe cial costumes and she Informs stage-; hands in advance that she does not require special stage accessories.

"Honora" is the vehicle which Miss Francesca Redding, the noted come dienne, has selected for her first sea son on the Pantages circuit. The plot has to do with the adventures of a poor but titled Englishman whose chum is the son of an American millionaire.

"Louisiana Lou," the brilliant musical comedy success, which comes to the Hellig Theater Thursday. Friday and Saturday, with a matinee Saturday, caught the public's fancy with the brightness of its book, the easy rnytnm of its music, the cleverness of its peo ple and the general attractiveness of ensemble that is irresistible. It proved one of the biggest drawing cards of the Columbia Theater season, and It was trebly welcome In view of the late general theatrical stagnation. In fairly "shoots up the town" with its exuberant vitality. It overflows with healthy humor, fun and laughter. It la youth and optimism running riot on the stage. No pent-up I'tica of conven tionalism contracts Its powers. It gives free rein to Individual and collective efforts to banish dull care with sprightly lines, flying feet. Joyous young voices and gladsome comedy. No one cares much what It is all about. But Its authors, the Messrs. Burkhardt. Don aghey and Jerome, have provided a tangible background for their elusive love story of the New Orleans Mardl Gras. The old French quarter of the South ern city Is one of the most picturesque spots in America and its quaint charm has lost nothing In Its "Louisiana Lou" production. Mr. Jerome's melodies are up to the high standard with which the public associates his name. Widely dif ferent, but equally catchy, is his "My Rose of the Ghetto," sung by Barney Bernard; Sophie Tucker's "Puritan Prance": the waits song. "If Love Be Madness," and the rollicking choruses of "Now Am De Time," "When Patty Goes a Courtln' " and "Louisiana Lou, My Lou." Barney Bernard has never done any thing better than his David Warfield like Lidoffski. Sophie Tucker has Im proved Immensely since her last ap pearance on the Pacific Coast, and Harry Hanlon, Helena Salinger and Robert O'Connor return as old friend'. The chorus cmes under the category of those things which are widely writ ten of but rarely In evidence good lookinr girls, who can both sing and dance and whose effectiveness lies in their intelligent efforts to secure en semble results. Bessie de Vole and Eleanor Henry fairly shine as the In genue and soubrette. and Leader Mer rlam's musicians Justify his Chicago L Salle fame as the cleverest muslial corned director in the West. Mr. Askln, who has sent this, his original company, to the Coast, has every reason to be proud of its accom plishment.

August 11, will present a merry and season able comedy offering, "The Girl With the Green Eyes," one of the wittiest and most brilliantly satlrlral works of the late Clyde Fitch, and one never seen by hundreds who compose the present Summer clientele. It is the story or a cnarming younw bride, whose only fault is an Insane Jealousy. She Is even Jealous of her bridesmaids. While upon ner noney tnonn in Europe she seems to have acme tangible cause for complaint, but it Is all through misunderstanding, an after she has made life a burden to herself and everybody whom she loves she wakes up to the realization of her folly. One of the big scenes snows an art gallery at the Vatican In Rome, with ita crowd of Cook's tourists. The comedv is full of humorous situations and resounds with laughter. "Bub" of Bayocean Is Real Old Sea-Dog Veteran Boston Bull Never Falls to Meet Ferry Yacht and Act as Es cort to Passengers Going and Com ing. BAYOCEAN, Or., Aug. 3. (Special.) Visitors to Bayocean are first attracted by a huge BoBton bull dog which greets them at the pier at Garibaldi, carefully sees them aboard the yacht Henrietta, which acts as ferry from there to Bayocean, finally boards the craft and entertains the visitors during the pasaage by select ing for himself a place just over the stern railing and proceeding to chase his stub of a tall until he Is dizzy. Speculation has been rife as to whether' "Bub." as he is called, may not fall overboard sometime, but reli able information is to the effect that this has never happened but once, and then, not from chasing his tall, but be cause he tried to get aboard after the gangplank had been withdrawn. "Bub" does not belong to Captain Jenkins, of the Henrietta, but to a landsman in Tillamook. He has Im bibed a love for the sea, .however, and is always a passenger on the little yacht. Starting from Bayocean early in the morning on the first trip, "Bub" makes regular trips with the boat, landing at Tillamook, going up the dock to see that everything is all right, and never falling to return with the first sound of the whistle. "Bub Is a great favorite with guests at the resort, though he never conies to the hotel, but haunts the restaurant, where the people are especially liberal and he never suffers for lack of good food or a good place to sleep at night. In days gone by "Bub may have been a famous tighter, for his massive head is marked with numerous deep scars which indicate he has been in several lively mlxups.
