The jrreat rural pJay, "Khore Acres'
Is soon to be seen here. There Is a
balmy, autumnal atmosphere ever
hanging over' "Shore Acres." It Is a
i symphony of ripened grain , and red
leaves. It springs upon one with the
subdued hum of birds and takes one
! through the woods, as It were, out Into
the country. It strikes home to tha
hearts of the people and that accounts
for Its great lasting powers. 'Archie
I Boyd, the great character actor anil
'a first-class company, with all new
scenery, will be seen here at the Stew-

many years, plays the part of the
