class drama, "Because I Love You,"
and recitations by Miss Bessie

The drama was full of romance
and thrilling climaxes, the comedy

and was presented to an audience
whose appreciation was not less
than their merit. As the gypsy
waif, Miss Lucas Wyly was charm
ingly good and she won new lau

admirably in the role of a wilful,
wayward heiress, and Miss Pauline
