Torn Moore At Lyceum The presentation of the delightful Irish comedy "TOui Moore" at, the Lveeum last night merits words of high commendation. It is a drama in a class by itself, and the play lost nothing in its interpretation by Stoddart Company. Will Stoddart. in the title role, was a perfect em- bodiment of that and the flashes of wit ami bubbling humor that characterized his conversation were realistically genuine. Miss Leah Stoddart in the part of Bessie Dyke. Tom's sweetheart, merits much praise. She was most pleasing as the pretty young schoolmistress surround- ed by her charges in the village school. The plar is much of the story: of the gifted Irish poet and his phenom- enal rise in the world of literature, and was full of heart interest as well as comedy from start to finish. No more pleasing interpretation could be giTen of the characteristics of the Irish poet than this little story. To-morrow eveninf the comuanr will present another comedy flay.
