See Yup, an educated China man of his life, in the same manner that he slew his victim fifteen years before, are all graphically portrayed. About all this is twined two love stories. The story is binding in inter est, unusual in theme, wonderfully staged and splendidly enacted. It ought to create a sensation at the Or pheum this week. On the same of fering pretty Naomi Glass and clever Paul Morton come back in their de lightful musical flirtation called "My Lady of the Bungalow," and scored their success of a season or two ago.
