'I iliiOHIE TRAMP" "A Millionaire Tramp," an attract ion which is giving satisfaction and according to reports is doing a record breaking - business, will be seen at the -Lucas opera house Tuesday, Dec. 29 The crudeness of plot so often seen in plays witn a similar title are conspic nous by their absence in "A Million aire Tramp" and in their stead are ■character types such as one sees in borne life. The play has a bright -sparkling up-to-dateness and the story is unfolded in a natural manner. It hat b en said th»t "A Millionaire Tramp" possesses sufficient merit to enjoy as long an existence as ''The Old Homestead."
