has remained for the enterprising
young theatrical manager, G. Ii.
Eldoo. to use the famous locality
around which to have a play writ'

of the great scope it gives for beau
tiful stag, settings snd scenery, all
ot which is looked after in the
present production. One scene in
particular is that famous historical
outlaws biding place 'Terror
Cave" never before introduced io
drama. While tbe pUy is full of
strong and stirring situations, the
comedy part is not forgotten, but
is clearly ingrained in the plot.
