THE DAIRY FARM—MONDAY SEPT. 9.
The rural drama is as periennial and
as pure as Tennyson's peom, "The
Brook." The people never tire of it
provided the play is kept within the
bounds of reason and the atmosphere of
rustic simplicity. Eleanor Merron's
domestic play, 'The Dairy Farm," is a
worthy example of its class. Like
"Shore Acies," "The Old Homestead"
and plays of the same character, its
morals are irreproachable—in fact it has
been said that the Dairy Farm tells the
cleanest and most wholesome story that
has ever been told in a play of like char
acter. It will be seen at the Park
Theatre on Monday next and presented
by one of the strongest companies en
gaged to produce a play of its class.
WHEN LONDON SLEEPS—TUESDAY,
| When London Sleeps is the title of
| one of the strongest plays ever written
| and which will be presented at the
Park Theatre on Tuesday September 10.
> It is the work of Mr. Charles Darrell
the well known English playwright
and has met with more success than
any play of its class that has ever
been staged. It is now in its ninth con
secutive year in England and the pres
sent season will be its seventh in this
country. It is replete with startling
scenes and thrilling situations which
are always sure to work the audiences
witnessing the performances up to the
highest pitch of enthusiasm.
