A notable event in the theatrical his
tory of tho Lyric Theatre will bo tlie pre
sentation, by arrangement with Henry
W. Savage, of Franz Molnar's famous
European play "The Devil", which will
be presented by Mr. Alfred E. Aarons,
at the Lyric, on Friday evening, Oct. lp.
In Franz Molnar's story it is almost dif
ficult to determine whether "Thu Devil",
who calls himself Dr. Miller, is super
natural or n terrestrial personage. He
appears, however, as a well-dressed, pol
ished though cynical man of the world,
who, having an apparently demoniacal
insight into the real sentiments of a bank
er and his wife, an artist who was the
latter's earlier lover, an heiress who is
the artist's fiancee, and other charac
ters in the play, manages to so shape
their affairs as to bring about a number
of highly interesting situations, amusing
as well as thrilling, all ending, of course,
to the satisfaction of all parties concern
ed and the delight of the audience. For
