We acquire cheerfulness and vigor from Mere association with oui fellow men in the theater and from Tho looks Happy expectancy radiating from our neighbors countenances inspired by the anticipation prospective enjoyment Good clean wholesome drama Well acted and properly presented. Such at least is the idea brought forcibly to mind in gazing Over an audience assembled to witness w. E. Nankeville a great production Quot human hearts Quot aptly described As the a forever Evergreen a human hearts is a play that invariably appeals to All that is Best in Many a nature and uplifts him from the sordid cares and Petty worries daily toil and trouble. The Story a human hearts is clean wholesome and intelligible to everyone. There is no suggestion vulgarity in any its acts but a Story convincing strength is told by the author in a manner that appeals irresistibly to All classes theater goers. The enormous Success a human hearts during the past ten years is a direct refutation the idea entertained by so Many theatrical managers that sensationalism and criminal adjuncts Are necessary to a play to assure its Success with the Public. Such plays die out As soon the Public interest wanes. Not so with a drama possessing the Merit Quot human the lease life accorded such a play is not dependent a momentary interest excited by some crime but the firm solid basis humanity and human feelings. It touches the heart strings rouses our latent better instincts and makes us feel Kinder towards our fellow Man for having witnessed it.

Crime Ridden City had the Rich denied themselves for just one Day. Queer ways boys. A Mother three Lusty schoolboys had just superintended their evening lessons and packed them Oft to bed then she sat Down with a laughing sigh and asked a question a Why do boys have to follow each motion they make with a Pencil with awful contortions the face Quot a frogs Are the things that Are noted for reflex action Arentt they Well they Are nothing compared to my boys. The movement a Pencil is reflected in every muscle their funny Little faces and sometimes i think i can Tell whether they Are doing multiplication addition just by the Way their noses wrinkle.
