St. Elmo At Majestic The woman with a past has been a familiar subject dealt with by play- wrights for many years with more or less disagreeable effect. "St. Elmo" presents a man with a past, and his redemption at the hands of one of the sweetest little heroines of the stage makes a production that loses none of the force of the unpleasant plays, but leaves the spectator with a feeling that he is better for having witness- ed the performance. Following closely the lines of Aug- usta J. Evans' successful novel of the same name, "St. Elmo" presents a lit- tle wildflower of a girl, who hears al- most the first unkind words of her life from the lips of SL Elmo, the mis- antrophe. A series of disasters trans fers the innocent girl of the woods in- to the splendid household where St. Klmo's word is law. She loves him and remains true to her love throughout countless tempta- tions. St. Elmo fights against his love for the girl. He tests her faith in every way; he plunges into more desperate finSirs tiinu cvsr, but not escape the girl's steady influence for good. A more powerful series of situations than is presented by the play couH not easily be imagined. It provides the right kind of a problem play. This splendid attraction will be at (the Majestic Theatre to-morrow and I Wednesday.
