Those who \yere fortunate enough to witness the play on Saturday last will agree with me in this. It has been my pleasure to o�fer Lethbridge theatre goers many splendid attractions in the past, but none can possibly make such a universal appeal to all that is good and true in human nature as will 1 "Out There." It has been necessary for us to deposit a substantial guarantee withthe management of "Out There" for the return engagement, but we have done so fully convinced that the people of Lethhridge will welcome the opportunity to witness the play again. Those who saw "Out There" on Saturday night will want to see it again, and those who were foolish enough to miss it, wil! now have one last opportunity in which to see the greatest play of the century, when it returns to the Majestic next Monday night.
