THE TWO ESCUTCHEONS.

Sydney- Rosenfeld's adoption of the
German comedy "Zwel Woppeh," was
produced at the Frothlngham last eve
ning before an audience that was much
smaller than the merits of the comedy
The comedy, or farce, to be more exact,-
Mr. Ibsenfeld has named "The
Two Escutcheons." ltls bright, light,
swift moving. full-of action and pos
sesses not a little real humor, although
some of the cheap variety Is thrown In
probably that the real article may be
the more conspicuous by contrast.
The first act passes at a Spa In Ger
many, with an activity that is more
characteristic of Americans than Euro
peans, for the meeting, engagement
and marriage of the lovtra transpires
in the opening quarter of the drama.
Mary Foster is the daughter of a mil
lionaire pork packer of Chicago. Ru
dolph von Wettlngen, of Berlin, Is the
son of P-aron von Wettlngen. who looks
back wl'.h pride to the nobility of his
ancestors. The mating of Rudolph and
Mary Is happy enough until Mary's
father comes upon the scene and dis
closes the nature of his business to the
baron, who has .a supreme disgust for
the escutcheon of the porkopolltun gen
tleman with considerable lack of court
etiquette. Their meetings renilt In
family entuglcments, sudden broken en
gagement, as suddenly patched up, and
eventually white-winged peace hovers
over the scene and the troubles of the
daughter of the Chicago pork merchant
and the son of the buron "ure whistled
down the wind."
Robert F. Cotton, who was a member
of "The New Boy" company, seen In
this city last season, was excellent as
the Baron von Wettlngen, who has a
great pride In the his long line of an
cestors, reaching back to the Crusudes.
It Is not easy to. imagine how Mr. Cot
ton's Impersonation of the proud, ex
citable, yet not bad-hearted baron
could have been much Improved upon.

Smith, of Archbald, who claimed that
he found the dog roaming In the woods.
A suit before a Justice of the peace was
necessary before the dog. could be re
covered. The sagacious animal was the prin
cipal witness. The fact that It recug

takable evidences of Joy at again seeing
