Lyric "Little Minister," today and
H Coming Attractions,
Salt Lako theatre -"Sign ot tho
H LyrlQ "The Stowaway."
1 At the matinee today and perform-
M unco tonight Mr. Harry Dercsford, the
M well known comedian, will appear at
the Salt Lako theatre in "The Woman
M Hater." The comcdlnn and his comedy
B have heen well received elsewhere,
M and, no doubt, local theatre goers will
M turn out In force to wolcoino Harry
H Bcrcsford In his latest laughing sue
M cess, "The Woman Hater."
H "The Llttlo Minister" which made
H Maudu Adams famous is establishing
H tho dramatic reputation of Ethel Rob-
H crts among the patrons of the Lyric.
M- It Is really surprising that the stock
H company on Main street Is appearing
H to such advantage In a play of such
H difficulty. And when tho prices of ad-
mission aro considered there Is still
M greater wonder among tho skeptical.
H 1 can not say that I am partial either
H to Irish or Scotch drama. As a rule
, actors and nctresses struggle hope-
H lossly with the blarney of tho one and
H tho thistle of the other Is too sharp
H for their tongues. But, If one will ge
Into tho spirit of the "Little Minister'
H nnd snap his fingers at Scotch dialect
M enjoyment is easy nnd unconflncd. A
H I said In tho beginning, however, Mis
1 Roberts Is surprising those whe
H thought they knew her ability in othei
H roles. As tho distressed heorlnc, the
H suffering wife, tho storm-tosaed wo
H man of lurid melodrama, the work 6i
H Miss Roberts has already been repeat
H cdly approved by both the gallery an
H parquette. In tho rolo of "Bobble'
H the llttlo lady really measures hcrscl'
H with a new standard fills tho dl III
H cult demands ot an exacting part witl
H the artistry of an actress. And while
tho "Robbie" of Ethel Roberts Is not
H tho "Robbie" that made Maude Adams
H famous, still It Is such a "Robbie" as to
H set people talking here In Salt Lake.
H If this be undue praise I simply say,
H ''hoot mon!" go and seo her for your-
self. "The Llttlo Minister" himself
H Gavin Dysnrt in the hands of Mr.
H SlofanI, although overdrawn here nnd
H thorc, is cillclently played. Upon the
H broad shoulders of that popular favor
H He, Mr. Blttuer, sets well the mnutle
H of the over-anxious elder of the "kirk."
H I liavo seen Mr. Bittncr como unscath
H cd through all the fires of mclodramn.
H But never before have I seen him
H more satisfactory cast than as the
H warden of tho church in "Tho LIt'le
Minister." Even If the Scotch thi Vo
