Iorothy Jardon is the star of the Or
pheum show opening at the" Heilig this
afternoon. "When Uorothy was here last
season she scored one of the really big
hits of the year and in looking back she
is remembered with Lillian Russell and
one or two more Orpheum stars who set
the town talking and created lines to
Dorothy Jardon is a double star of
the highest magnitude and when it is
said that she lias "a charminsr nor.
tonality" that bromldic description can
oe taken literally. Once upon a time
someone Inquired of a group of stage
ihands who was the most popular "sin
gle woman star in big-time vaudeville
and stage manager, grips, electricians,
flymen, the property man, assistant
property man and. stage door man re
plied "Dorothy Jardon." So, I take it.
jjoroiny Jaraon may oe safely set down
in linotype as the most beloved "single"
woman in the two-a-day realm.
Henry Hitt and Harrison Fisher, the
famous artists, stood right up in pub
lic and declared that Dorothy Jardon
is one or the ten most -beautiful women
in the world. They did not list the
other nine, but whoever they are they
will have to hurry to beat Dorothy.
Dorothy was not known here when she
visited Portland last year, but Port
land audiences paid her the tribute
which they give only to their. pets, that
is they applauded .iu?t as soon as the
curtain rose and disclosed Dorolby in
all her beauteous Japanesey array.
Personally I am quite mad about her.
Unlike most-stage beauties Dorothy
Jardon has- ability that almost sur
passes her appearance Hhe has brains
and Individuality, and while she is one
of the handsomest women behind the
footlights she is one of the very few
musical comedy favorites with a voice
of grand opera timbre. Two grand
opera impresarios In New York said She
was an ideal "Carmen" and In trying to
induce her to slng'the opera declared
her success In that role would undoubt
edly equal that of Calve. Her first bid
for fame was made in "Madame Sherry"
and it was in that production that New
York just opened its arms and em
braced Dorothy as Its very own. Then
she was made star at the New York
Winter Garden and the all-seeing Mar
tin Beck held out an alluring contract
and won her for the Orpheum circuit.
Dorothy' was the first star this season,
say the theatrical journals, who was of
fered a rise in pay to make a return
trip to the Far West. All of this being
the case, it looks as If the crowds who
were attracted by the Orpheum last
week with the "Greater Morgan Danc
ers" and the road show ensemble, may
call again to see Dorothy. And, as was
said in the beginning, you do not have

THE BLl'E PARADISE" COMING
Musical Comedy to Appear at Ilelllg
March 1 and 2 .
At the Heilig Theater, Broadway at
Taylor, Thursday and Friday, March 1
and 2, will be tne Shubert production
of "The Blue Paradise," a musical
comedy, in a prologue and two acts,
which has been Americanized by Ed
gar Smith from the original Austrian
book by Leo Stein. The play takes its
title from an inn of the same name,
supposed to be located in Vienna, and,
although there are American charac
ters In the operetta, all the scenes are
laid in the Austrian capital. The story
deals with the son of a wealthy Aus
trian, Rudolph Stoeger. who is over
fond of conviviality and a constant vis
itor at the Blue Paradise Inn, where
he has fallen in love with Mizzi, a
flower girl at that resort. Rudolph's
father -decides that a change of scene
will be well for him and sends him to
America to make his fortune. This is
the prologue. The action of the play
itself begins 24 years later, when Ru
dolph returns to the scenes of his
youth, after having accomplished his
mission in America, only to find that
everything has changed and that the
little flower girl, who had promised to
be true to him, is now the wife of one
of his boon companions. Rudloph, how
ever, does not allow this to weigh too
heavily on him, and he turns to the
widow of his late partner in America,
who has followed him all the Way from
Chicago, and the curtain falls as she
promises to marry him. .
'GIRIi OP GOLDEN WEST" IS ON
Baker rlay Laid in California In
Gold Rush Days Is Dreamy.
For 'two weeks or more mail orders
have been pouring into Baker Theater
box office from all parts of Oregon
for seats for the widely advertised Be
lasco production of "The Girl of the
Golden West" by the Alcazar Players.
This is one play that has never been
produced In Oregon outside of Portland,
although it is a pretty safe wager that
every man and woman in the small
cities has heard of It and longed for an
opportunity to see it. It has one of
the longest records for local produc
tion also, having been seen here alto
gether seven weeks before this season,
but interest in it seems to be on the
Increase rather than otherwise.
The secret of all this triumphant suc
cess lies in the scenic beauty, romance
and dramatic power of the play, which
deals with life in a small mining town
of California in the days of '49-'50. Its
action centers about "the girl," who
keeps a saloon and dancehall at Cloudy
Mountain, a sweet. innocent girl,
despite her wild surroundings and lack
of culture. She longs for something
and .her soul tells her that there Js
something higher and better for her
somewhere outside. But she ia the idol
of "the boys."
Jack Ranee, the Sheriff, has no sam
ples in his attachment for her, and
when Ramerres, the road agent, comes
along in the guise of Mr. Johnson, of
Sacramento, and the girl is evidently
attracted by him. Ranee becomes in
sanely jealous. The scene shifts from
the saloon to the girl's cabin up the
mountain, later to her "school room,"
where she teaches the boys, and at the
end shows a glorious sunrise in the
Sierras, where these two, man and
woman, have joined lives and are say
ing "good-bye" to their California.
It is all so beautiful, dreamy'and ro
mantic that Its play on the emotions
is irresistible. A wonderful scenic pro.
duction is promised, with an immense
cast in which Ruth Gates will play the
Girl, Albert McGovern will play Ramer
rea and George Taylor the Sheriff. pe-

that the curtain will rise promptly at
8 evenings and 2 matinees, and that
no one can be seated while it is up.
DOROTHY JARDON AT ORPHEUM
Artists Pick Her as One of World's
Ten Slost Beauttrul Women.
Dorothy Jardon, who vwas selected
by Henry Hutt and Harrison Fisher,
famous artists, as one of the world's
10 most beautiful women, is the star
of the Orpheum show which will begin
a four days' engagement at the Heilig
Theater this afternoon. Miss Jardon
scored a distinct triumph In her first
vaudeville tour last season and she is
the first Orpheum headliner to win a
return engagement to the Far West
at a big' increase in salary. ,
Miss Jardon not only is a beauty, but
a singer of note, fine is regarded as
Rata Server, Musician at Stra
being one of the few musical comedy
stars wnose voice is ot grand opera
timbre, and New York impresarios an
nounced that her "Carmen" equals that
of the illustrious Calve.
Miss Jardon made her first big hit
in New York as a feature in "Madame
Sherry and thereafter she was made
star of -the New York Winter Garden,
where she repeated the triumph that
had placed her name in electric lights
for the first time. She fashions her
own vaudeville act and pays such great
attention to detail that her stage set
ting is magnificent and the lighting
effects are as well timed and as well
blended as those 'of a road production,
She is accompanied by her own pianist,
who, for this tour, is Jerry Jamagin,
who plays a medley during one of Miss
Jardon s costume changes.

the Orpheum 'orchestra will play "The
Long. Log Trail" as the exit number
after the show.
Newspaper critics all along the Or
pheum circuit have been lavish in
praise of Miss Jardon
beauty, her voice
and her costumes.
So great has been the applause won
by the star that her success this sea
son looms as sensational.
The extra attraction of the show is
the act offered by Florenz Tempest and
Marion Sunshine, who call their enter
tainment "A Broadway Bouquet,"
which consists mainly of popular songs.
Tempest and Sunshine are sisters, from
Louisville. Ky. v They appeared here
at the old Orpheum in the Marquam
Grand several years ago and the hit
they made then is still bright la the
annals of the Portland Orpheum.
The next big type act is that of Ed
Flanagan and Neely Edwards, who will
present their vaudeville classic called
"Off and On." This act shows the rou
tine of a Bong and dance duo and the
action includes a rehearsal and a per
formance. Each is a clever comedian
and the act is punctuated with laughs.
Old-timers known the world over are
next. They are Fred Hallen and Mol
lie Fuller, who bave been before the
show-going public for the past 23
years. Their new Orpheum act is
called "The Cbrrldor of Time." It is
a satire on fame, in which thev recall
old times in song and story before a
curtain upon which the playbills of
25 years ago are depicted. Fred Hal
len is the Hallen of the old-time nart.
nership, Hallen and Hart. In the early
days he was eo-star in "Later On,"
"The Idea." "The First Prize Models"
ana other successes of the late '70s and
the early '80s. Miss Fuller is the
Mollle Fuller who was a great favor
ite in the days of our fathers in E. E.
Remaining acts are Corbett. Shepard
and Donovan, three boys who sing;
Maria Lo and company of seven girls,
presenting "porcelain" reproductions of
the world's most famous pieces of
Dresden and china ware; Witt and Win
ter, a pair of aces; the Orpheum Travel
Weekly and the Orpheum concert or

it all over the circuit, and it has been
an ovation. Everybody has had a wel

"Bine Envelope" Billed for .Next
Week to Make Folks Laugh.
Following' "The Girl of the Golden
West." the Alcazar Players will be .
seen la "The Blue Envelope," a broad
and breezy farce, which enjoyed a
long run at the Cort Theater in New
Tork last season. Few genuine farces
have been seen here in stock recently. :
plays that have absolutely no serious
purpose in life. Intended only to pro

a welcome one for a week.

ten around a couple of chaps who get
into the power of an adventuress, a
clinging vine blonde. A certain- blue
envelope which contains incriminating
evidence against them figures prom
inently In the plot, which' leads to a
rest sanitarium, and mixes the charac
ters up In a manner so ludicrous as to
be a perfect scream from start to finish.
The trouble with most people used to
attending serious plays Is that they try
to take farces seriously, and thereby
miss all the genuine harmless fun. If
they go to see a Fatty Arbuckle' film
they know just what they are going to
see and get in the mood for It. If tliey
tried to take it seriously, however, the
experience would be positively painful
to them, and it is the same way if they
try to take a broad, rattling farce like
"The Blue Envelope" seriously.
It's fun. pure and 'simple.
