The Girl and the Oold King.
A question of greatest moment to
•every -man and woman, married or
single, is dealt with in a clear, straight
forward manner, true to life, in the
great com6dy, "The Girl arid the Gold
King." It involves a charming story
of absorbing interest,' beautiful sentl
ment, tender heart interest and thrill
ing realism that has now for it a place
second to none in the hearts of theatre
patrons. The characters are all drawn
from life, and the author has cleverly
avoided stagy and unnatural personali
ties too often seen on the stage and
never in reality. It is one of the
notable character play hits of a decade,
-a comedy of intense hearty interest, a
play that is sympathetic in its ability
to reach the heart of men, women and
-children and comes to the opera house,
