WAROE IN "KING LEAR." ,
A r Inished rr foruiaues at Harp.r Thea

'Kicg Lear received a magnifi-
cent presentation at Harper's the-
tre last evening at the hands of
Frederick Warae. ' King Lear'' is
not one of these Shakespearean trsg-
cdies to which great actors are ac
cuftomed to apply their talents. Its
conception is so great that the under

as ridt'ar. the legitimate son, was n
clever adaptation, and the duel be

a thrilling piece of sword practice.
The slight but beautiful part ot Cor

tiorenco Wilburhaia, while the chat

king's favored hut faithless daugh

Marcia Treadwell, re'pectively, wore

was well selected.
The play received the accampani
ment ot some of the best stage real
ism ever seen at Harper's theatre,
not only in the general scenic etfects.
but in the mechanical and electrical
adjuncts, this being particularly
demonstrated in the storm on the
heath in the third act.
HarpT's theatre was graced bv
one of us old time representative
