LEDGER PHIUADBUPHI, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 1013-
SOCIAL LIFE IN AND ABOUT
THE Monday Evening Dancing Class, which
for mruly years, together with tho Assem
blies, has sot tho social status of the debutante,
)s for tho first tlmo elnco the days of "Dancing
"Wllllo White" without a chaperone. Owing to
the recent death of a near relative, Mrs. Frcdi
crick Thurston Mason, who for tho last fifteen
or moro years has been In charge of tho class,
' will not act In that capacity this year, and, so
fnr, no one has been found to talco tho bur
den, Philadelphia without a Monday Evening,
at which a debutante has met and conquered
many a heart, will be a strange place.
When Mr. Whlto was at the head of the
clna, the conventional thing was for the debu
tante to appear In a simple- French muslin
, frock, made high nt the back of the bodlco and
opened In a square at tho front, where billows
, of lace gave a soft finish; but the debutanto of
today seldom wears a simple gown, for evon
the most girlish are made of satin and silk.
Mr. Whlto was succeeded an head of the class
by Mrs. George Bokcr, who was In turn re
placed by Mrs. Frederick Thurston Mnson. It
Is greatly to be hoped that these delightful
dances will still bo kept up, and It Is with
great regret that society Is called upon to
relinquish Mrs. Mason, who has so admirably
conducted tho affair.

.wood, has Issued Invitations for a largotat-home,

Lure Devotees of These Sports.
Any one Interested In suburban club nffatra
might be inclined to think that a spirit of

from the numerous attractions scheduled.
At Manhelm, tho home of tho Germantown
Cricket Club, the ladles' annual lawn tennis
tournament for singles, doubles and mixed
doubles will begin Monday, September 2S. This

Comedy prevails on the bill for the first half
of the week at tho Knickerbocker Theatre. To
be suro, Edward Clark, In his feature act, In
troduced enough pathos in his work nt times
to make It nomowlmt nn exception to tho gen
eral statement. But the surrounding acts were
finnkly designed fiom start to finish for
laughing purposes, and attained their end with
a high degree of success.
Edward Clark, to a piano nccompanlment.
gave a number of extremely clever character
impersonations, ranging from that of a Broad
way chorus girl to n pathetic sketch of a
homeless street urchin. The act was novel
and mnde a hit.
Barnes and Robinson, In a pinno-slngincr con.
coction, kept the nudlenco In galea of laughter

"Blindness of Virtue"
The beautiful young daughter of an English
vicar Is brought up in Ignorance regarding the
facts of facts. She knows nothing about eu
genics or a lack ot eugenics. The girl and n
outh. with whom she falls In love, are drawn
back from tho proverbial abyss "In time." This
is the theme of the "Blindness of Virtue," by
Cosmo Hamilton, well played by a company
of English actors at the Orpheum.
A young woman kills the leader of a band of
white slavers and Is sought by tho police. She
Is engaged as stenographer by a shrewd, whim
sical writer of detective yarns, who writes a
tala about the crtma committed by the girl
and brings her to confess to him. However,
he saves her, and virtue triumphs. A thrilling
detective drama, successful In New York and
revived, with excellent acting, at the American.
The tricks of tho stage are Infinite. In the
new production by the Brothers Byrne, of
"Eight Bells" fame, an aeroplane voage lit
erally lifts beholders from their seats. There
Is a collision between two motor cars and the
demolition of a Swiss Inn by a runaway ex

Problem of Men's Neglect and Decep
tion of Wives Theme of "The Revolt."
A Play That ''Gets Across."
A waiting wife a wlfo waiting late In the
night for the husband to return who, loving,
deludes herself Into believing her husband's
excuses and untruths, and caring for tho
home and a child; Is stinted by a meagio al
lowance, makes over old dresses and boars
negligence patiently. A wlfo tortured with sua
plclons, harrowed with jealousy, still devoted
and meek and silent. A pathetic figure a too
common figure in life. Her counterpart is to
be found In the little framo dwellings of every
town, in the drab rookeries of every hive-like
city apartment house.
It has remained for Edward Locke to present
this piteous human drama in such a popular
way na to express nnd bring home the Injus
tice of the double standard of morals In tho
marriage relation In "The novolt," which
opened nt the Adelphl last night. Ono might
say It remained, through tho vehicle of Mr.
LorkeSs play, for Helen Ware Intimately to pro
sent the heart tragedy ot too many wives.
"The Revolt" as a play has excellent qual.
Hies. It transplants complications nnd phases
of actual life to the stage. It carries Its alle
gory convincingly. It Is n play thut must seri
ously do good. While it throws before lt3
audlrnce. In the second act, the meretricious
elegance and luxury of vicious living, as main
tained by self-righteous, self-Justifying men.
"The Revolt" Is clean and salutnry. It is nn
American play, dealing with familiar domestic
conditions. It Is as effective a plav on Its
theme as was the antleptlc, much-exploited
drama of Brleux on another.
Anna Stephens, the wife, has waited for her
husband night after night for seen years.
There was only n honeymoon year ot happiness
John, the husband, acted by Alphonz Ethler,
spends his evenings as many husbands do, and
while he tells his wife he woiks at the office,
mingles in the company of a certain kind of
emancipated women. To them he gives his
money. A tribute must be paid to Miss Waro
as an nctress. Unaffected by tho tricks of tho
stage, intellectual In her Interpretation, her
acting hns tho simplicity of really great talent.
Ono la never conscious of the aotiess, you see
only tho wife. Such a portrayal Is art.
Assured of her husband's inlidelltv by her
scheming, villainous, whisky-addictel step
mother, who urges her to the life which. If it
costs men money, brings money to women,
Anna confronts John with evidence of his mis
doings In a letter received from a woman. The
long pent-up passion of jears bursts forth, and
Anna rushes forth to the life of freedom en
Joyed by the husband. While her precipitate

excused by the claim of dramatic exigencies.
Most women would wait till morning and. If
they loved their child as prodigiously as Anna
asserted, would take their child with them.
In striking contrast to tho mean homo of the
