At nights, under pretext of having o do overtime work, half a dozen of "the poker players would enter the building and over a desk where Important public business was" transacted in the day time they played their game for high stakes under a shaded lamp. 1 One employe, who lest tZO, -his whole week's salary, 'at one sitting fed later, upon returning ror "revenge" lost a borrowed $20, went to the authorities of the bureau with his- complaint. This led to an investigation. A score of other men were. found to have lost their money in a. like manner. Then came the dismissal of 'ttie ringleader and the suspension of .the others without pay. and the demotion of still others. The charges made were of cheating. So far as the officials could learn the poker game, the roulette, the deajfng-of "cold decks" and even the craps game were all conducted according to gambling rules.

It - Is literally a play within a play, for the stage Is set as the stage and sauditor-lum of a theater and for the entertainment of 'those In the boxes a complete music hall program - Is brought off. : It is the richest kind of comedy, for between the pseudo ? audience In the boxes and the performers on the make-believe stage there Is kept up a hot fire of persiflage and pointed comment that Is at all times laugh-compelling to a degree. Twenty English artists make up the - company. It Is the most expressive pantomime and so clear is it to even the dullest comprehension that spoken words could not obtain to mar the- effect. Sadie Sherman comes in exceeding ly clever cosmopolitan characterizations which have brought her to the fame she has In the vaudeville world. Miss Sherman Is a delightful little comedienne and is possessed of a. personality decidedly f etchlng.1 Unusual Interest lies in the fact that she Is not only a Daughter of the Revolution, but also a daughter of the Civil War, for she is a relative of the famous warrior Sherman, who marched .from Atlanta to the sea and Is &. grand- preBident ,of the United States. She Is the especial pet and protege of the veterans of the Grand Army of the Republic and wherever she goes the old-time flghtihg- men assure her the warmest of "welcomes. . Jack Goldie brings to th bill one of the sweetest tenor voices In vaudeville and a pronounced gift for humor. Also he is a pianist of no small ability. As a matter of fact he Is a single-handed "rathskeller act" of class and' considerable ' distinction. Goldie's personality, is a large item in his list of assets he ,has a way of "getting it over,? in a manner of speaking which would get him by even did his act lack much of Its very excellent quality. Lohse and Stirling offer as pleasing an aerial performance f em one ' would go far to see. They are youngsters, but threy are sensational chaps in their business and evidently do not let considerations of fear and personal danger stand between them and their reputation. Their work is wholly away from conveirtlonaLJines. - Henry B. Toomer and Nan Hewins are no small feature in their rural, comedy jplaylet, "It Happened in Ixnelyvlue,v In which the former Is cast as-Jlmmy Black, an actor, while Miss Hewins Is the Irrepressible chambermaid in the country hostelry.
