, New York cast without the change of
; a single name.
I For continuous and uninterrupted
I laughter "Never Say Die" has rarely
j been equaled on the American stage

It Is filled to overflowing with those
quaint flashes of wit and brilliantly
numorous diu oi repartee wwca nave

Dying can hardly be considered a
1 humorous business and yet it furnish-
humorous situations arise.

nltles for the display of tlioae rare !
flashes of light comedy interpretation

May Yokes, the drollest of our com
ediennes, Marie Flynn, the sweet lit

Starwood. Amelia Summerrille, John
Slavln and Richard Taber. Silvio

ear with rare decisiveness, some 38,
000 copies of the various melodies
having been sold since "When Dreams
Come True" reached Chicago. Messrs.
T. B. Harms 4: Co., the publishers,
state that the number known as the
"Dream Song" from this piece is quite
the best seller of the year.
