few years her beauty will be
gin to wane, and then he will
hate her and. Oh, it will be
terrible! And Ronald gives
a groan and cries "No, no,
no, no! Never that, never
that!" And Lady Alice,
though her heart is breaking,

The clever little farce comedy about the young man who
would have been disinherited unless he married before his
twenty-eighth birthday. It was just seven minutes of hii
twenty-eighth birthday when he found out the condition's

He married the ashman's niece, and on the honeymoon
they meet the girl he was once in love with. Complica
tions. Though not much to write home about at the start,
being a clever girl, the ashman's niece will become very
beautiful before the final curtain, and they will live very
happily, etc If unsuccessful, the farce will be turned into
a musical comedy, in which case it will without doubt run
year on Broadway.
