in New Musical Shows One Star Can't Utter Intelligible English and Another Only Dances. I'npns- blm- n- hnndkor-chlef. BY FRANKLIN FYLE8, NEW YORK, Nov. 12.Emmo. Trontlnl can't Hpnak flvo consecutive English words tn "Naughty Marietta," nnd Adeline Adeline Cicnoo won't, make a sound at nil In "Bachelor Belles." Emma and Adeline aro the emblazoned actresses In thopt now plays, nevertheless, becauwo one sings melllflurouBly and tho other dances ba-wltohlngly. ba-wltohlngly. ba-wltohlngly. I will try to tell you what they do to bo entertaining with unintelligible unintelligible utterance and unbroken ullcncc, Adeline Gcnoe can daro the consequences consequences of being1 willful. After dancing Into the utmost popularity In London'o big concert halls by much footache from tiptoe gyrations, she married a man In btiHlness cahoots with the Duke of Newcastle, Newcastle, whoso coal mines pliicn him next lu wealth to Kockafeller with coal oil welln, ' Tho wedding" was a year ago. Adeline, though horn Danish. Is Kngllsh by long residence, and so jnho doesn't hesitate hesitate to ' say as an American bride wouldn't that forthcoming maternity la the reason she will soon retire from tho stage for' awhile. And. although Hhe took a speaking part Inst season hero, Hhe hae declined to do more than dance this season-Well, season-Well, season-Well, season-Well, Adeline noeda but to foot U dumbly In "Bachelor Belles" to get to the front center; for alio Is, l think, tho most agile and graceful dancer now allvo and kicking-. kicking-. kicking-. Sho lmn nothing whatover to do with the coterie of bachelor belloH who renolvo that they hato men and will never, never shift from maidens to wives. At tho end of tho first net. whu enters on the points of her two bigger toes, with hor back to tho spectators; and then, turning a, face full of sweet smiles to the footlights, she becomes the premiere of a bnflot In the old Htylc of fluffy short Hklrts. Midway of th- th- second act Khfc flit and flutters airily Into sight uyaln in the semblance of a butterfly, with hor bodice bearing the head of that pay flyer, Its wings spread with Iit skirt, and her armw and lens ho disnortlvo that one can hardly toll which pair of limbs are carrying her off tho pronutl ns much us on it among girls guisod as iosok. At tho close of the play uho reappears as a Hungarian dancer in neat tan booty along with the rest of th notional peasant costume, and with a wondvoUHiy nimble man for a companion. That being over, sho poses In the, midst of the ennipnny as though sho had been the heroine of the ptrty'u story.
