MR ROBSON COMING.
We are told that Undo Nat in "Shore
Acres" is not more affecting; Pudd'nhead
Wilson enlists no deeper sympathy ~than
does Bern .lucklin, a new chat acter which
Mr. Robson has introduced to stage lore
iu hit latest play by Augustus Thomts,
called "The Jucklins," which was sug
gested by Utie Read's novel of the same
name. It is said that Lern Jucklin is a
most attractive figure. He is not a
dreamy combination of accidents, beuo'
in the brain ot the dramatist; not the
eccentric old man of artificial comedy,
whom yon distrust, however much you
may applaud, but a creature of flesh and
Mood, a whole-hearted, honest old father,
a metaphrase of nature, Interesting
through his oeculiarties,uot funny as the
wont is interpreted in its .bearing upon
comic part. Mr. Robson's t new charac?
terization is said to be one that will com?
mand the enthusiastic regards of all de?
votees of the play house. At the Acad?
