THE AEGUS. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1900.
At Harper's theatre tomorrow even
ing will be seen the new comedy,
"Courting at Green's." The names
of David Higgins and Georgia waldron
are associated with dramatic effort of
merit, and their advent in their new
play is to be hailed with interest and
greeted with attention. Each succes
sive play by these authors-actors
.shows decided advance over its imme
diate predecessor, and from all ac
counts the present drama marks not
only an improvement, but almost an
ppoch.in their career. It is in a freer,
higher vein than their last play, "At
J'iney Ridge," and is a rural comedy
of character and humanity rather
than of mere incident. . To the Amer
ican who loves his own people it
f-onies like a voice from the heart; it
is so full of common, every-day hu
mor, pathos and wholesome truths.
