also to endeavor to work out a more

that the consumer will also j?t his

Buckskin Ben discover that John
is really not married but is deeply in
love with his (Ben's) niece Mary, Hie
charming village school teacher. So
it all ends happily by John getting
his bride and the estate also.
The play is interspetwed with songs
which introduce a large and well
drilled chorus. The scene of the play
is in the flower garden of "The Gib
:on House" and is vc-y attractive.
Miss Lillian Richards as tho Quak
er girl gave a i-arely fine performance
.!ii i-pimI her lini's rierfectlv and sang
- yU" " delightful soprano voice. Few
;i ' -ijofeisional performances in this
. .have produced V. wore, rnjoy-
suloist. She made a very eitarnt

r : "erwood. who carried the
; art of the i!ay, (lid ftxC(;1
k." A sonorous voice in the
wings that persisted in prompting.him
before he needed to be prompted
marred somewhat the.' effect of his
work. Mr. Calderwiod .acted with
entire ease and seemed to be enjoying
the complications he was making by
his loose use of the truth. With
Miss Richards he sang with fine effect
"The Only Girl" assisted ,by the
chorus. Ilis song "Pretty Girls" was
a specially fine bit of work.
Mrs. B.' E. Doyle was excellent as
Minnie, the cook. The love-making
complications of the play centered
about her. It was easily conceivable
that so attractive a denizen ol the
kitchen might upset all the usual rou
tine of the household. Mrs. Doyle
renil her lines ncrfcctlv and had an
case, and charm that was irresistible, i
Mrs. E. E. Sargent got a lot ol
good laughs as Miss Whitcomb, the
maidenly housekeeper who was not
adverse to being wooed. She gave,
"Cleopatterer" as a specialty and got.
some good laughs.
Fred L. Follensby, as Peter Jones,
the porter, had a very difficult part
but he did admirably well. Harold
C. Abbott was excellent as the West
erner "Buckskin Ben." His acting
could not have been improved upon.
From a musical standpoint the en
tire performance was thoroughly en
joyable. The hit of the show was
"The Song, of the Rose" as sung by
Miss Lillian Richards, assisted by a
.-imi of Kortheastern Vermont's
nrctticst cirls. Miss Richards was at
her best in this number and her rich . juuj t)mt was aftci. the nccident. She

thc same that came to Pilate, when
after he had satisfied thc mob by re
leasing Baraubas, he said "What shall

Dr. Uees then forcefully presented
the question to the audience, urging
all to receive, him as a personal Sa

asset to any man and not a liability,
