UAH FROM HOME"
SCORES jK SUCCESS
Elks' Presentation of Amer
ican Drama Pleased Great
Crowd Last Night
- "The Man From Home" packed
the Grand theatre to the doors last
It is a wholesome play with a gen
nine American flavor, and it was pre
sented by a remarkably strong local
cast, and . staged with "fidelity to
Italian scenes among which thickens
the plot and finally unravels in the
most approved style of the American
novel upon which it Is founded.
"The Man From Home", Ihmiel
Voorhees Piko, a home-spun lawyer
from Kokomo, Indiana, was accurately
portrayed by James W. Mott. He was
cast for the star role and fully sus
tained his reputation as a capable
aetor, possibly he did even more and
won new laurels in tho estimation of
an appreciative audience. He looked
the typical American who could not
understand the reverence of his attrac
tive ward for the titles and traditions
of a decadent old world perhaps he
did not try to comprehend them.
The Earl of Hawcastle was there in
person though some folkathought it
was Charley Galloway. Galloway
missed his calling monkeying with dry
tex details when he might be delight
ing big audiences both to his and their
His son, the Hon. Almeric St. Aubyn,
was also there and his real name is
Murray L. Hart. He took the part of
an English society dude so well that
one felt like doing something real mean
to him. That was some acting sure,
for it was real enough to make a fel
August Huckestein, Jr., with a Bols
heviki beard made a genuine Grand
duke and won ia place in the admira
tion of the big audience by his keen
portrayal of a rather difficult part.
The part of Bibiere, secretary to the
grand duke, was taken by I S. Geer
who butted into everything and made
himself generally conspicuous. He
wants to keep out of the governor's
way should his excellency ever desire
to change secretaries for he would sure
get the job.
A. L. Fnasier had a serious part for
he was Mr. Ivanoff, a Eussian fugitive,
and that job is bad enough at its best,
though just now the fugitive Eussian
should wear a smile. However he was
a fugitive before conditions in Bussia
got so bad. The audience felt real sor
ry for him ho seemed so nearly, what
he pretended to be.
. Horace Granger Simpson, son of Old
Man Simpson, of Kokomo, Indiana,
was represented by Charley Miller of
the Hotel Marion and he showed the
American to who had been exposed to
the European bug and was badly bitten
by it, in an artistic, manner.
E. Cooke Pat.ton was there in the
shape of the maitre d'hotel and he
talked incessantly, solemnly and with
an eye always to business. To offer
praise of his work would recall the old
smile about .painting the lily.
The army consisting of Ben Olcott
and Walter Keyes and under the com
mand of Tom Kay was one t&at would
make the boches hunt the third line in
the Hindenburg line of defense, or
some place still further back toward
Berlin. It is seldom a secretary of
state, a state treasurer and a mayor of
a capital city get on the boards in a
bunch and that feature was sure one
to be remembered.
Harley White was there too, an ex
mayor, who- turned head waiter and
hauded out considerable fun along with
the things he was supposed to pass
over to his customers. One wouldn't
think it of Harley but he was an all
right waiter and if you doubt it take

Miss Olga Gray as Ethel Granger
Simpson, had tho difficult role of lead
ing- lady and she played it charmingly
aud with a fine conception of the
character. She was by turns, sweet,
saucy, insouciant, demure as a mouse,
and as flirty as only a real American
girl can be.
Mrs. A. J. Eahn as the Countess of
Champaigny showed genuine talent in
a most difficult and trying part, meet
ing all its demands in full.
As Lady Creech, the Earl's sister,
Mrs. E. M- Hofer again delighted all
with her acting. One can hardly call it
that, lor she takes the part so natural
ly that one can hardly realize she is
acting. She has the happy knack of
making a part seem the real thing and
this she certainly accomplished last
The presentation will be repeated to
night and the proceeds gQ to the Bed
ed likely that definite means of unified
operation would be devised.
The president will be ready within
a short time to advise congress of his
desires as to this vital project. As af
fairs are now shaping, it appears like
ly that a government railroad dictator
perhaps Secretary of the Interior
Lane will be appointed to run tho
lines. He would have power to pool
the lines and their equipment; to elim
inate un-essential schedules and so di
rect finances that the railroads at tho
end of his tenure would be on a sound
er basis than before.
However, both the railroad wr
boarj and the brothernoods intend to
impress upon the president the views
that private control under a singly
head can accomplish desired war effi
ciency, provided the government lends
a hand in strengthening the roads' fi
The president "himself has been non
committal so far, although the general
impression is that he is favorable to
the government control idea. Congress
as a whole appears sympathetic to such
a solution of the problem, but will be
amenable to whatever suggestions the
president may make.
Send over many airplanes is the per
sonal message from General Pershing
in France, and already the northwest
is making extensive preparations to
do that little thing.
