Robert Wayne is at present manager of the house, which, although it is in a theatre district of its own, keeps a steady clientele. Recently ' business has been nearly capacity each week. The Academy got on its feet this week with "The flitz Girls." Busi- ness was in protty bad shape for the first three weeks, but it started off well Monday, partly due to the holiday, and also because the word was arotmd that this show wouldn't be a broak-in.

Flynn distributed circulars in the Auditorium, where the show is playing, saying that a wedding ring was under a chair and that a brace of seats was the re- ward. He had a bedroom door, with No. 18 on it, and two pair of shoes outside. In front of the theatre, and during the week he got a local girl to dress as a bride and then he put her iu an automobile and drove through the business section. At a busy corner the machine would ostensibly break down, the bride would dismount, and it was not un- til the car began driving away and the bride pulled an advertising curtain down that any one got an idea that the thing was faked.

It has been a long time since this stuff has been pulled in Baltimore, but just now it seems productive of results. The Russian Opera Co., sont out by H. Hurok, is in Baltimore this week at the Lyric, and is already enjoying the benefits of a big ad- vance sale and excellent notices from The local papers. They were lieralded by a lot of Sunday paper press stuff, and with their 13 top succeeded in drawing a smart audi- ence and their graduating scale had the effpct of filling the usual baro holes in the balcony. Two tapestries used in the second act of "The Elusive Lady," the Julian Eltinge show which is open- ing here this week, were stolen from the car in Union Station .Sunday. They wtre valued at $2,000. and tlio set for the second act, which l8 an interior, was built around them, ac- cording to Jacques Pierre, producer, and Mr. Eltinge.
