Premiere Danscusc at 16
For a number cVf years petite Marllynn Miller,
who will appear In "The Passing Show of 1914"
nt the Lyric Theatre next week, was unable to
dance In New Yoik because of the vigilance of
the Gerry Society.
Tho Gerry Society, as you may know, docs
not encourage "child prodigies" on the stngo.
Now Marllynn, suld to be one of the most mar
velous of dnnceis, was n child picAllgy, a real
"Infant phenomenon," after the standard set by
Marllynn was 16 the first day of September.
She danced when she was I.
Miss Miller never appeared in Now York In
fore 1 1st Juno, when she made an extnordlnary
hit at the Winter Garden.
Marllynn made her debut with her father,
mother nnd sister at the Lakeside Park, Day
ton, Ohio, on August 20, 1103. One afternoon,
while the Millers were playing in Dayton, little
Maillynn Miller, then 4 years old, wns tnken
to a moving picture show. One of tho pictures
was of a famous premiere dnnseuso. Marllynn,
on arriving home, told her mother that she
thought she could dance on her toes as well as
the lady she had seen in the pictures. To the
surpilse of Caro Miller and his wife their little
daughter was very soon dancing around the
room on her toes.
So it was that little Maillynn becumo ono of
the Columbians, which after that week were
billed ns "The Columbian Trio, with Mndomol
selle riugarlump." The name "Mndomolsollo
Sugarlump" was after a time dropped from the
"billing," and the MHU?r family bucimo known
as tho "Columbian Four" father, mother and
two daughters. Owing to the child labor act.
"The Columbian Four" was unable to appear In
many of tho larger cities, sinco Marllynn Miller
was so young. As there aro no restrictions as
to ago In other countries, the Millers played
much of the timo during tho last ton or more
years In Canada, England, the West Indies,
South t-'en Islands, Hawaii and Australia. Be
fore last Juno the nearest that Marllynn Miller
came to appearing In New York was Christmas
week. 1905. when "The Columbian Four" played
a week In Brooklyn. The Gerry Society thon
Interfered, and so little Murlljmi, unable to
dance, wns compelled to walk through her part.
Last May the Millers were appearing at thi
Lotus Club in Loudon. Lee Shubort was abnwd
teeking novelties, nnd was greatly astonished
at tho wonderful clevorness of Mnrllnn Miller.
Ho at once sent to Care Miller, tho young ladys
fnther, nnd arranged for her appearance at the

country to direct ichearsals of the now play
which ho hiiH written for Margaret Illlneton,
will complete the trio of distinguished British
playwrights now In America. The other two
urn Sir .1. M. Uarrie and A. IJ. V. Mason. The
plots of both the new Jones plays aio tdiroudcd
In a good ileal of mystery. The greatest of all
Mr. Jones' successes, "The Silver King," has
been successfully plaed In London by H. B.
Irving at the Strand.
Bruco McKac, who 1h stuitcd in "Nearly
.Mauled," has hud a vailed, vigorous career.
Mr. .Mcltao was born in India. His father
was a civil i;iigliieci in the Biltlbh military
sorvici. At the agu of 10 ho wanted to adopt
a stage eaicer, but the probability of quick

sent to Laramie, AVyo., to a big ranch, where
he horded steers for two years.
Then ho went on tho stage. Charles Froh
man was producing Sardou's "Thormldor" In
Now York, and the straightforward, manly
approach of tho suu-tanncd youth from tl)e
IVest Just suited a pait. Although Sardou's
urama fallid, McRao came out of the experi
Noia Dnyes returned to New York recently
nnd dined in a restaurant not far from Broad
way. Score3 of women and managers were
icon to go up to her table and request her own
ns'uranco that she was still alive. "I knew
I was awfully popular with all my husbands."
said Miss Buyes, "but I never knew It was so
alluring with the general public at large to
have been thought a dad one."
