At the box office of the Mijes&c to

I well known to require an iiiircduciion
! to audiences, for this famo:n detc -tivo
comedy is one of the successes of tho
year that <is likely to t'J'to its place
as a permanent laugh make; ot' tVe
American stage. It is wha is known
as a "rattling good" comedy written
bv Harvey CHiggins an i Harriet
I'ord, who wrote "The Arg/le Case,"
with four acts of good fun e icitiug
plot, "heart interest" and clever char
acterizations. It was fo'in.led on iho
"Detective Barney" stories of A!*.
O'Higgins, originally nublijied i'i
I " Collier's," which chronicled iho '•••si

At the Orpheum
One of the best mirth-producing acts
that has been seen at the Orpheum for
, many a long day is entitled "The Pi
ano Movers," being presented by Mc-
Uevitt, Kelly and Lucy thers this week.
The fun that takes place when two
really clever comedians, playing the
part of piano movers, move a piano into
an attractive young actress' apartment,
must be seen to be appreciated. The
piano movers sing a little, dance some,
| but evoke round after round of hearty
j laughter with their antics and rich
i lines. The united efforts cf this clever
j trio are a comedy hit of tne first wa
! tor. A splendid vocal .fter.ug is
| served up by William Bu<r and
Daphne. Hope at the Orph -nn this weel:
i also. Their act is class from the get
j away, being a refined blending o'f love
| songs that one sings to the other.
A beautiful and artistic stage ar
rangement, together with the talents
and culture of the artists, maV - their
turn one of rare merit and beauty.
The Golden Troupe of wonderful Rus
sian dancers, of course, oc-upies the
coveted position of headlirer. The
troupe comprises twelve Russian artists,
singers, dancers and musicians, and
their light and scenic divestment is
quite elaborate. Throughout t'he Or
pheum 's holiday bill is e*_e"eiTt. The
management is announcing ihr'M shows
for Thanksgiving Day, th- extra per
formance to be a twiiipht matinee. It
will begin at 6.30 in the evening and
will be over a:t 8.30, when th? regular
evening performance will begin.

To-day concludes the engagement of
George Auger and company at the
Busy Corner, where they have created
a small sensation with th'ir splendid

sketch and a comedy magician com
