This play continues till Wednesday night On Thursday "Jesse James" will be presented. A portion of this troupe was actually in touch with the family of the James brothers, and while not claim- ing relationship or similarity of char- acter, they do claim to know a great deal about the play. Thursday night will show to the public a story in drama of one of the most thrilling tales of outlawry of the middle west states. Mir Herman Saved Did You Read His Wonderful .Story in the Papers?
