When new came back from Australia that she had scored in her new play, mor wagging of heads and spreading of ink was indulged by the quid mines. And finally she came home to our shores, and for several months she haa been proving to Americana that she haa the capacity for earnest, sincere, purposeful dramatic work. It may be that her forte Is for light comedy; Omaha has not seen her often enough to Judge of her qualities in this regard. She surely po sesses tho power for serious and authorita tive expression of the deeper and stronger passion that stir human life. As Helena Richie she Is offering a type of woman far to be preferred to those usu ally presented under similar circumstances. We have had a long procession of those fair one who went "a-kennlng wrang," and who were too weak to win back their road to happiness by the only means humanly possible. Helena Richie found the way, and sh was given strength to follow It Mrs. Deland foresaw for her the calamity that overtook Paula Tanqueray, and saved her from It, not by any tour of force, but by the expedient open to Plnero or any other creator of these puppet who are moved about in the game ot aex upon the stage. But Pluero and his kind had not the courage to adopt the one chance open. Maybe the atmosphere ot Old Chester is clearer than that of London, and for thl reason the ability to discern the choice be tween right and wrong Is more readily ex ercised. At any rate Helena Is left at last redeemed because she had the strength to turn her back on "the easiest way," and set her feet on the stony path of right. Miss Anglin gives a fine idea ot the "awakening" of the woman, showing how her own sense of right and wrong was finally adjusted till It met with the rather narrow but eminently correct standard of Old Chester and it mentor, the good Dr. Lavendar. She haa some very strong scenes. In fact, the third act Is fairly tempestuous; Helena Is called upon first to renounce her lover and her chance for marriage; then to make confession to the old preacher, whose conviction would admit ot no compromise between self and truth, to give up the boy she longed to adopt and for whom ahe had sent away her lover; and finally to stand convicted before her own conscience. It Is a whirl wind of passion and emotion, and In it Mis Anglin ihows how much strength she really commands. Not a passion Is torn to tat ters, not an emotion la shrieked out In gasping hysteria; no sofa pillow are tossed about, nor does the tide of sobbing disturb the scenery. Here I an act that nine out ot ten of our "emotional" actresses might study with profit. Mis Anglin leaves not a point untouched, not a chord unsounded, but all 1 done so reasonably that It seems real beyond Imagination. Nor is it in this alona she shows her art. In the lighter passage she is equally good. Her Joy at the coming of her lover; her feverish eager ness for his reply to her telegram; her bit ter disappointment when she fluids h Is not aa ready for the marriage as she, all are parts of a well conceived and wrought out character. Miss Anglin has Justified her own Judgment when she deliberately undertook to "star" under her own man agement. The suporttng company ia good. Mr. Crouford is impressive at Dr. Lavendar, and Mr. Howe fully realizes the part of Dr. King. Mr. Ormonde might leave a tittle less of Pryor'a Intent apparent and not spoil th role.
