Sylvester Schaffer a "Whole Show"
Poople are sometimes spoken of as being "a
circus" but usually not In a complimentary
way. They are sometimes told that they think
themselves "the whole khow," but usually with
some reflection as to their own Belf-esteem.
But a compliment can be sincerely paid to
Sylvester SchnlTer, who heads the bill at B. F,
Keith's Chestnut Street Theatre this week, that
Is trite but unique in its application. Mr.
Schaffer Is the one man In the world of whom
one can aay he la a whole show In himself.
Sylvester Schaffer, the greatest performer of
L hU kind In Germany, Is marvelous. Yet one
can hardly say "of his kind," for we know of
no other such entertainer In tho world. A star
of vaudeville, the man Is a great artist In all
he does. We have seen strong men, slelght-of-hand
painters In oils, sharpshooters, Japa
nese Jugglers, violinists, animal trainers stars
of their kind. Schaffer combines all of these
In one, and the dramatic artistry with which
he accomplishes every act places him In the
class of really great artists.
Mr. Schaffer Is In America by an arrange
ment with Messrs. Shubert, for It was due to
Lee Shubert that Mr. Schaffer consented to
come to this country. The ability of tho man
who performs so many feats Is really astound
ing. Schaffer plays the violin with an exqui
site touch, shoots with the true aim of a
marksman, even Improving on the usual stage
exhibitions of sharpshootlng; rides horses, jug.
gles, and proves that he Is a master of black
art by showing many new tricks In coin and
card manipulation and numerous other things.
Schaffer's series of performances are the most
extraordinary ever seen In vaudeville.
With breathless rapidity the Aerial Budds
perform an amazing series of contortions on
the trapeze. Miss Robbie Gordone effectively
poses after many celebrated statues, will M.
Creasy and Blanche Dayne are both amusing
nnd touching in the sketch "The Man Who Re
membered." Next to Schaffer, Claire Roches
ter made the biggest hit on the bill In singing
operatic selections, alternating her voice and
singing both as a man and woman.
Shiver Melodrama Well Done
"Mellerdrammer" In the shape of "A Fool
There Was." with Eugenie Blair at, "the
woman," otherwise the Vampire, came to
the Walnut last night and was well received.
As a matter of fact, there were four of them
the fools. Albert Phillips, as "the husband,"
was the one "used" throughout the produc
tion. Then there was Clarence Woodlief as
"oung Parmslee. who appeared in the Ileal)
for about two seconds In the first act, Jut long
enough to killfhlmself. MUs Blair threw rose
leaves over his body, he was carrie4 out bv
deckhands and a steward mopped up the
"blood" and rose leaves with a dry mop. The
other fools were present only Jn U'e d ni gue

"WHIRL OF THE WORLD"
Winter Garden Production Marked by
Stupendous Spectacles and Cyclonic
Chorus Mile. Chapine Sings Charm
ingly and Wears Green Rouge.
"Tho Whirl of tho World," which tempestu
ously gyrnted on the stage of the Lyric Tho
ntro last night, Is certainly not dramatic. It
Is hlppo-dramatlc. In musical comedy It fol
lows the Ideals of the Hippodrome. In humor
It Is equally exaggerated and emphatic, and
some of Its Jokes aro certain to get under
nny, even a pachyderm, skin.
Bustling with excited action, kaleidoscopic In
its bewildering gaudlness, replete with songs,
"The Whirl of tho World" succeeds In what
It was designed to do that Is, to carry you
away from your workaday routlno of living,
thoughts of food prices and the war and bc
guile you with pleasing fooleries and frolic.
There Isn't n high-brow moment In "The
Whirl of the World."
In the last scene of the first act appears one
of tho most Imposing spectacles attempted
on tho stage. As tho curtain rises you be
hold nothing lees than an ocean-going steam
ship at the Havre dock. Moving as a real
ship moves on the swell of water, funnels
breathing smoke, port holes lighted, passengers
on deck almost overwhelmingly It towers over
tho audience, and we feel like rushing up
the gangplank and waving good-by, soon to
feel the heaving motion of the sea beneath us.
But wo think of tho danger of English war
shipsthe boat before us being the Vaterland,
nnd are relieved In being recalled by
Willie Howard, that obstreperous but
mnuslng comedian, when he sings "The Hng
tlmo Pinafore." We said the steamship wa
convincing, but wait! Why should the Vater
land sail from Havre? Why. when Havre Is
tie port of French steamships? Wns It neces
sary in staging "The Whirl of tho World" not
to slight the Germans by having a French
boat at a French port? Did the Messrs.
Shubert anticipate the violent attacks of a
German editor in New York because in a
medley of national songs In "Dancing Around"
they forgot at first to include "Die Wacht am
Rhein"? It Is great to be fair, but could
the Irresistible Tltlan-halred Mile. Chapine have
really sailed from Havre on a German boat?
To those who saw this show nt the New
York Winter Garden It has lost something of
tho bloom of spring, both In clothes and chorus.
But, with the falling of the leaves and cold
winds and coming from a run in Chicago we
presume this seasonable effect Is Inevitable.
Hut the music of Slgmund Romberg Is as ever
lefreshlngly delightful, and the songs are good.
Willie Howard, as a Hebrew comedian, Ib
contagiously funny, and Is excellently supported
by Eugene Howard. Mile Chapine is charm
ingly Pnrlsienne she might be even mora
charming If she were even more Parlslenno.
Sho speaki "American" almost too well. An
accent Is always piquant especially a prima

"Madam President," which came back to the
Broad Street Theatre last evening with Fannlo
Word as the star.
Hitherto the rules nnd regulations of the
Farcemakors' Union, French Local No. 1, have

Into a provincial French town, poses as tht
