To begin with the theme of "Aris

the heart strings of almost any one,
bot more especially the class ot peo
ple who patronise the Paramount; it
ta a society drama with almost every
featur? that o??e would e?.?*ct tc find
In that sort of s play. The successful
western Jefferson Stockton, makes
his "pile", goes to New York to "live"
and let his daughter Virginia, and
second wife have their fling at "high
society"; the beautiful daughter meets
and loves the son of one of the old
Knickerbocker familles who are, and
always have been as proud aa luci

Stewart-Lawrence, returns the young
Indy's love, but when he mentions his
engagement to bis parents Mr. and
Mrs. Stewart-Lawrence, they imme
diately set about plans to frustrate the
match; they take the stand that she is
a "nobody" wlhout any social pool
From this position, the play un
ravels from one scene on to and
through another. In which the boy's
letters to the girl are Intercepted,
and she .and her. family go to London
for a London "Seasdn." She wonders
what, ls the matter with-her lover;
