I cen everywhere conceded that "The

that the I .a Salle has turned away at

Celia so sympathetic as this one. The
same, verdict, immeasurably strength
ened, may he passed upon Miss Al
len's impersonation of Viola. The
great charm of her Viola lies in the
fact of the seeming spontaneity that
is the highest proof of skill and in
the fact that she has found a cleai
and distinct conception of the charac

significance of every line. Theatre
goers will not need to be reminded of
thi" quality here described as womanli

Allen's personality; there is something
wholesome, sincere ati l earnest in that
personality; something that inspires
respect and consideration, a quality
at. once elusive anil tangible, some
thing more than mere magnetism. Yet
magnetism she pi -ssesses an! in no
instance has it been shown so clearly
as in Viola. Such shouts of laughter
