C. Cop-pious' production, "Lola In Love," a comedy with music, has a few secrets for remaining young and keeping; happy. "I think," says Mr. Garvle, "the reason that actors keep thejr youth longer than most people is that theirs is a particularly well-balanced profession. The average actor In the average part is Douna to get just about the riant proportion of physl pal and mental exercise. His many exits and entrances and other "busi ness" contain aulte as much rood ox erclse as golf or tannla. The best physical culture I ever had was in a play some years asjo In whloh I ran a race and did other things that kept my muscles constantly in action. And on the mental aide the player must perforce keep his brain par Ocularly active." At The Poli acting of Jackie, It contain a plausible, coherent story whloh ses full sway to Jackie's talents and furnishes excellent entertainment. It Is a constant delight to watoh this little hlstiionlo genius at work, H registers all the emotions, from grave to gay, with a punch that pulls at the heart-strings of the spec tutor, no matter how young or old, whether naive or blase. At The Nesbitt with all the afenosplro of the side-show or annex the lobby of Poll's theatre yesterday was a reminder of the sTunmer days. The banners and side-walla depict the freaks and ourloelties that are being exhibited the final three days of the week In the vaudeville feature entitled "Bam am Was Rig." This vehicle Is made up entirely of circue freaks and curiosities who during the hot weather months; are carried throughout the country and shown under canvas as part of the circus In the smaller tents and these asms unusual human beings are aai bled for the winter months by a big vaudeville producer and arranged for a regular tour of the Indoor amusement theatres. Thev - at' traoted plenty of surprise and won derment yesterday at the South Main street playhouse and will con tlnue to do so during the remainder of their stay. . Many followers and devotees of the circus or side-show each year undoubtedly were of the opinion that the human what-ts-it, 'Zip, was dead. However this nil. man curiosity is much alive and looks not a day older than he did thirty or more years ago when he is first shown by the late P. T. Barnum' and was labelled every where as the missing link or what Is-lt. The same millet-shaped head with the tuft of hair at the crown and the hawk-like nose continue to be the unsual marks of thto freak and with the squinting eyes none can help but recall his original trip here and wonder at his physical ap pearance as he was looked upon yesterday. The other freaks Include the fat girl weighing: 410 pounds and singing a ' song and doing some dancing; the human sliver, while comedy touches are furnished by the bearded lady and the grown together twin contribute songs, violin playing and dancing. Other enjoyable acts of the same show are given by Bernard and Betta, su preme xylophonlsta; . - Green and Burnett blackfaced comedians; Ml rnonette Kokln and Company In delightful dancing creation; Holland and Oden with songs, chatter and dancing. Harry MacDonald and his Callfornians will be the added fea ture for both shows to-night David Butler Is featured in "According To Hoyle, the added attraction photo play and the Poll News shows the world In motion at each perform ance. . "-i :' Those who fall to attend the performance of "Getting Gertie's, Gar ter.", which I being given by Paul' Players this week, will miss the laughing sensation of the year. , This farce has been the greatest success of recent years on Broadway. There Is no villain, no problem, no triangle, no affinities or anything else to think about, all you do Is to sit back your seat, and no mater how bard you try you are bound to roar at the absurd situations and the queer plac ing of the characters In relation to each other. Paul Donah, Hazle Bur gess and Adrian Morgan all have lm portant roles In the farce and they play with the mock seriousness that emphasises the frivolity of the pro ductlon. Manager Paul Donah an' nounces as his holiday bill next week. beginning with a special .matinee on Monday, the standard rural comedy. "Shore Acres." which James H earns wrote and appeared In for many year. At The Majestic Pretty girls, tuneful muslo and delicious comedy features, "Girls la Carte," the current burlesque at the Majestic theatre. It is an ex ceptionally ' fine production, being mounted on a scale larger than usual It Is offered by a galaxy of principals. Next week's attraction will be "Hello Jake Girls" with Harry Fields and Dlxey Mason. There will be a spe rial midnight show staged New Year's morning- with "The Monte Carlo Girls" as the attraction. The special show will start at It: 01 o'clock on January 1. Tickets may be secured now.

No longer need men smile smugly and derisively to themselves, when they catch their womenfolk tldlvatine and "making up", before the mirror, for, in the Opinion of Walter - Stoneham, who has photographed more than 2.900 famous British.- people, from King George downwards, .. and altogether some 25,000 others, '. mostly men they are quite as vain as women. In a lecture to the City of London branch of the T. M. C. A. he gave some Interesting and amusing anecdotes culled from his many years experience as a society photographer. ' , "What would you think," he aski ed his audience, "f you opened a dressing room door one morning to find within the high officer whom you were about to photograph standing in front of the mirror removing the curling pins from his mustache? - - "Men talk about their women folk touching up.' etc., but I can assure you that men are just a bad." Referring to th famous -people that he had photographed, Mr. Stoneham said that best of all sitters waa Mr. Lloyd George. Cffle must admit that his vhk the face of a genius. Althou.thhe has photographed over 26,000 people, he has never come across two faces absolutely alike. PLAN MONUMENT TO PILGRIMS IN BRITAIN ' London, Dec, 22.
