Snitr. Moore and George B. Scan
lon's burlesque classic, "The Garden
of Girls," is the burlesque attraction
at the Majestic this afternoon and
evening. It is sufficient to say that
Snitz Moore and George B. Scanlon,
the well-known comedians, have pro
vided themselves with a most humor
ous theatrical vehiele in two acts. It
is said that they are even fupnier than
before. A newcomer to the field of
burlesque is Miss Alva McGill, the
Parisian nightingale, who heretofore
has appeared with only the best of
musical comedy. Others in the present
ing company are Harvey Greene, Flor
ence Fletcher, Shaw and Lee, Heloise
Horton, Martha (Marcita) Edmoml,
Beatrice La Due, Edna Lee and others.
A book full of witty lines and inten
sely funnv situations is provided.
"The Yellow Ticket"
A. H. Woods, who produced "With
in the Law," will bring to the Ma-
jestic to-morrow, matinee and night, a
new play by Michael Morton, one of
England's best known playwrights. It
is entitled "The Yellow Ticket" and
three acts are laid in St. Petersburg,
of the present day. The leading char
acters are taken from official and dip
lomatic circles in the great Russian
capital. Mr. Morton wishes to make
clear the fact that while the scenes of
his pday are laid in Russia, his is not a
Russian play in the sense of being
made up from the usual ingredients
that go to the writing of Russian
dramas. "The Yellow Ticket" has to
do with life in modern Russia. It tells
the at orv of a young Russian woman,

THE COMEDY SENSATION OF THE NEW YORK SEASON
A PLAY WITH BOTH PLOT AND LAUGHS
(THE ADVENTURES OF DETECTIVE BARNEY)
By Harvey o'Higgins and Harriet Ford, who wrote "The Argyle Case"
NOTE—The title "The Dummy" may be confusing to some patrons prior to witnessing the
i performance. Therefore, the following explanation is offered.
'The Dummy" is an absorbing story of a typical American youth who impersonates a deaf mute to
recover a kidnaped girl from a gang of most sympathetic crooks. It is very exciting and very funny.
HARRISBURG is to have the original company, without change, which played 200 nights at the
Hudson theatre, New York City, to crowds of Manhattan's most cultured and critical playgoers. "The
Dummy" makes a general appeal It delights alike patrons of the orchestra, balcony and gallery.

by the secret police of ft. Petersburg
for the protection t>f social outcasts.
"The Yellow Ticket'-' has had a run
of over a year at the Kltinge theatre.
Fletcher Harney will have the role of
"Baron Stepan Andrew," head of tiio
Russian secret police; Leonard Ide will
play Julian Rolfe, a young American
newspaper man, while Miss"Zola Telni
zart will appear as Marya. adv. ***

Tuesday evening, lie is younger than
Nick Carter, and smarter than Puck
'leberry Finn, but he bears close kin
ship to both of them as a real type of
universal boyhood, to be given the glad
hand of recognition by every man who
has ever been a boy. Barney Cook is a
Western Union messenger boy whose
eager dream of life is to be a "de
teetuff." He has the wisdom of the
streets, tho loyalty of a hero worship
per, a Bowery vocabulary and the
heart of a gentleman—and ho is just
fourteen. Don't miss him when he
eojnes here, for "The Dummy" is
sonietifing more than Barney Cook, a
groat big detective play with throb
and thrill for the grown-up public and
the laughmnker of the year. But, in
