The plot of "Innocent's Progress"
which is showing at the Dixie, is rather
frail. It belongs to the Cind.'.ctla
variety and though its story is simple,
It has everywhere met with great success
for it was splendidly acted and
directed. The story concerns the de elopement
of Tessa Fayne. win. rebelling
against the narrow environment
of the little villiage where she
J . is the drudge of an exacting aunt,
comes to New York. She had -iop=d
to become an actress, but failing ia
this is disheartened. She meet3 ( aril:

is killed in an automobile accik
