beyond repair. Nothing has been heard
of the three men who left the Web

with the Idea of giving to the public
productions that have proven In every
way the most popular. "What Hap

opening bill, has had perhaps a popu
lar a reception as any other comedy In
troduced, In recent year. The piece

presented It and made a tremendous
hit at the time. Another famous com

nights In London and also enjoyed a
phenomenal run In New York and the
principal cltlea of the United States.
The play, as well as the specialties,
will be changed each night and some
excellent reproduction are assured.
