At the Vendome.
Houston's newest heater the Vendome
threw open its doors to the public last
night and two capacity audiences wit-
nessed the clever vaudeville performance
that had been provided. Constructed on
the ai.-dome principle with a commodious
little stage ar.d appropriate scenery the
acts were well staged and seemed to
please the audience in every particular.
Rogers and Leipr.a opened the bill with
a noveity sinking and dancing sketch
which went wili a hurrah. The business
of the dummy well conceived and got
a roar of laugater which was evidently
the result most desired.
Klisla Tennant sang sacred solos and
was given an enthusiastic reception.
Luring the balance of the week sTie will
devote her attention to ballads.
Edwanie and Clarendon displayed the
test singing and dancing turn seen out-
Side the larger theaters this wasun an 1
the dancing of the male member of the
team is good enough tor any stage. The
team kept the audience In "a continuous
nppie of merriment during the time
their act was on.
The Shroys are good character changf
artists and Breaken and Hail present a
dramatic sketch entitled "His Ward s In-
genu.ty.'' Th present bill will run all week.
One of the best features of the house
is the t-teep slant given the floor en-
abling the btage to be aeen from every
seat :n the theater.
PEESS AGENTS' NOTICES.
The grpateiu single performer in vau-
deville will be the headllner on next
week s bill. He is Henri French anil
could (five a whole show by himself. Mr.
French is an Imitator of celebrated com-
posers and bandmasters a magician and
an acrobat as y-li. Hut tilers !ire many
other strong attractions in addition to
the great Henri French Vaudevilles
foremost Juveniles the Two I'ucks. will
present their character changes and ec-
centric singing and danc.ng; and the
beautiful idyl of the mountains cal.ed
"A Christmas-on the Omstock." will bt
presented by those well-known legitimate
stars. Mon1a Cilendower and Ray M&nion
who will be welcomed in the Lone titar
State In the line of Instrumental music
It would be hard to find a trio more
capab.e than the Imperial Musical TrloJ!
and as a treat for the children the beau-
tiful litTle fo terriers of Kurtts and
Bunse were enaaged. Whiting and Bro-
cee are two irirls who make a numter of
costume changes and dance In an exi-ert
and pleasing manner; and Miss Irer.e Re-
main the versatile English comedienne
w ho In addition to being talanted is con-
sidered the most beautiful girl In vau-
deville. The program will conclude as
usual with motion pictures and judging
from the high grade of the acts and the
pleasing vanity offered should be found
mbre than u.'ially satisfactory.
The great hnrl French is unquestion
ably the mostJversstlle performer on the
vaudeville ataA ana lucre are many woo
before. All marked in plain figures. Art Ware Copper Brass Graf t Ware have also been
think he has the greatest single act now
before the public. At all events Mr.
French has a wonderful reputation and
he must have extraordinary merit to
have won this far-reaching reputation.
He does many things and does them all
well and it Is usu.tlly considered that
when a man does one thlruj well he
ought to be satisfied. Mr. French im-
personates some of the world's greatest
composers and bandmasters such as
"Wagner Liszt Sousa and Creatore and
he also Impersonates lr. Jekyll and Mr.
Hyde showing the rrrvelous change
from one to the othe.. He also does
tricks of magic as well as some expert
unlcycle riding and fancy Juggling. In all
truth it can be said that he could give a
first -class vaudeville show by himself.
The man does such high-class work and
is so marvelouBly versatile that he pro-
duces a sensation in every city where
he appears and it often happens that
jeopie go to see him a halt doxen times
during the week.
Monda Cilendower and Ray Manlon are
two well-known stars who have deserted
the legitimate for vaudeville and so far
their success has been beyond their ex-
pecuu'o is. They are appearing In a
beautiful playlet called "a Christmas on
the Oomstock" and It gives both of the
principal opportunities for the display of
their histrionic talent.
Matinee dally 2.3. nights 8:30. Pbone
AT THE BIJOU.
Did you see the lireen-Eyed Monster"
at the Bijou last night. Somebody did
and if It wasn't you you couldn't blame
any one but yourself but don't fall to
k it before Wednesday afternoon as the
last performance of it will be given on
that day at the bargain matinee. Not
since the beginning of the Rentfrow
Stvk company's engagement has an au-
dience been so completely convulsed with
laughter as they were last night. "The
(Jreen-Kyed Monster" is positively the
funniest comedy presented to Houston
theatergoers In some time and the ver-
dict last night ua the most laughable
play ever presented on the Bijou stage.
The play contains a plot constructed for
laughing purposes only Thomas Potter
Hand; (Burt Hodgklnsi loves the some-
v hut ancient Mrs. Jugg (Miss ian
Hnt-au). he tells her of his love and re-
i ;ests a lock of her hair as a tender
token she takes off her chignon. Intend-
ing to comply with his request; he ap-
pears at an inopportune time demands
f. 1 treasure and In her "exoltement she
points to the chignon lying on the table.
He pounces upon It. and during the re-
mainder of the play the generous lock
of hair plays a prominent part and its
every appearance is the cause of out-
busts of laughter and applause. Miss
Adelaide Irving as Maudle lane gave a
most pleasing portrayal. Mr. Fred
Hartlett was excellent as Count Taffa
the pol'shed Frenchman. Allwyn King
as Sammy Turn Miss Hilda Berlin as
Mary Ann Dunn and Albert Dashlngton
a Danny Miles created lots of merriment
and gave exceedingly good Interpreta-
"The Green-Eyed Monster" is a little
different fr m anything yet offered by
the stock riompany but It seemed i tp
please Bijou patrons Immensely.
Temlght is ladles' night two ladles( or
one gentleman and ladv admitted on one
ticket. Beginning Wednesday night the
"New East Lynne."

Local Order of Eagles Open San
San Jacinto Park for the
San Jacinto park was formally opened
for the 1J09 summer season yesterday
with a big picnic given under the auspices
of the local Eagles. There was a good
attendance upon the grounds at all times
of the day the crowds gathering with
more force on the approach of the even-
ing dances and the occasion proved a
success from all standpoints. W. F.
Clarke secretary of the order chairman
of the arrangements committee was la
Among the attractions of the early
hours was a children's race in which
there were quite a number of entries.
Others were: The shooting gallery knife
rack novelty booth old mill race chil-
dren's playground and "X-Ackley"
Sackett silhouettist the man who cuts
off heads. There was also a vaudeville
show on the grounds with singing danc-
ing and other of the usual accompani-
ments. The roller coaster was placed In
commission for the season.
Of the attractions much Interest cen-
tered in the novelty booth. It comprised
a most unique miniature fish pond with
metal fish each of which was numbered
an equivalent to a piece of the novelties
on display. :
It was learned yesterday that the park
management Is figuring on selling the big
aerial swing formerly operated near the j
middle of the swale opposite the build-
lng to make way for another attraction.
At night the elaborate electrical displays
about the grounds were turned on and
gleaming through the green of the pine
needles above the merry crowds the spec-
tacle was one most pleasing.
Music In the pavilion was furnished by
the Herb A Lewis orchestra. The dances
were well attended and the music scored
Mrs. Richard C. Bryan was awarded
first prize as the best lady dancer on
the floor; the best gentleman dancer was
Manager Beck of the Houston Electric
company has forces of men at work
clearing off all undesirable underbrush
and eyesores that have accumulated dur-
lna the winter period of Inactivity and
it Hajglven out that the pavilion with
portlonx-of the fences and several of
the other smaller buildings may receive
coats of new paint in the near future.
At any rate the park people will en-

creditable attraction for Houston s pleas-
ure seeking population.
