! "Whoso conquers the world,
I Winning Its riches and fame,
f Comrs to the evening at last.
Confessing that Love was real,
F All the rest was a dream.
Bubtle and delicate In fancy,
wrought by two poetical minds with
daring- skill and bearing high the two
fold qualities of delicious laughter and
throat-swelling sobs, of which real life
is mostly made, "Rosemary" came to
the Heillg Monday night. John Drew
brought this play, in which he has
done his finest acting in a score of
The comedy he brings is exquisite,
a rare story beautifully told. Like the
opening of a rose Jar, it spreads a
perfume that reaches Into our mem
ories and we hold close communion
with long forgotten hours. A dried
bit of rosemary, a memento of what
might have been, given to a man of
40 by a slip of a girl in her teens and
carried' for half a century next his
heart this is the deathless part of
Love Goes With Him to End.
Love goes with him to the end. When
the girl has long been dead, and his
old cronies have departed into the
silence one by one, old Sir Jasper is
left, desolation incarnate. But next his
heart is pressed the faded and dried
sprig of rosemary, given him by the
girl, for hopeless love of whom his
heart was broken.
"Rosemary." she had whispered,
"take it; that's for remembrance."
From the festivities incident to the
coronation of the young Victoria of
Kngland in 1837, with its picturesque
costumes and customs, the story leaps
from its main events to the Victorian
Jubilee 50 years later.
In an old lace and lavender-scented
afterglow, we live again the story the
sprig of rosemary recalls. We see
again the eloping Dorothy and her hot
headed, jealous William sitting In their
overturned chaise, wrecked right in
front of Sir Jasper's park gates.
We Meet Sir Jasper.
We meet Sir Jasper, then but 40,
footing it three miles in night and
storm to buy number three in the
series just then being' published of
Nicholas Nickleby. We see him give
me elopers sneiter and later aid them
in making amends with Dorothy's par
ents. We note that what began as
merely a bachelor's sentimental inter
est in the heart affairs of others is
developing rapidly into a passion of
the heart for Kir Jasper. We watch
him beat back his own desire for Dor
othy and bring about her wedding
with William. Then the curtain hides
from our eyes his suffering; but we
carry its memory In our hearts. Just
us ne carries close his sprig of rose
Play Exquisitely Presented.
"Rosemary" Is exquisitely presented.
John Drew makes the transition from
tlie strong, dashing, daring, whimsical
Sir Jasper of 40 to the feeble old
groper of 90 with an'amazlng natural
ness and sincerity.
Always a dignified actor and master
technician in his craft, Mr. Drew has
never given us a role more artistic in
its every value or so Intensely human
In its portrayal as Sir Jasper.
A lovely young English girl, Alex
andra Carlisle, plays Dorothy with in
finite charm and feeling. Her voice is
a Denieon. Mrs. Thomas Whiffen, the
"grand oldest lady" of the stage, makes
a gracious mother for the young Dor
othy, while Harry Harwood, as the
girl's seafaring father, affords a rare
spot of humor with his nautical vocal
Hubert Druce. as the pedantic stu
dent and philosophical friend of Sir
Jasper; Robert Rendel. as the youthful
William, and Frances Landy, as a pert
and pleasing kitchen maid, are others
who make bids for more than passing
attention for excellence of work.

Captain Hugh Rodman, the marine

suggestions that the proposed cruise

That element of doubt and the pres

were being considered by officials as
possibly warranting the abandonment
of the cruise.
