Miss Lillian Lewis

"Q R.ElIDlr LORAIN El"

following unanimous opinion.
Mo play ever possessed stronger situation. It Is exciting from beginning to end. It
demands rare dramatic force, which Miss Lewis certainly possesses. 8ho Is Inlenso In tragic
pMoagea of her role, tender In her love making, and Htroug la her hatred, which culminates
in the scono of the assassination,
, Her costumes in "Credit Lnratne" arc exqulslt and wore made by Worth of Paris. As
Lenora, Miss Lewis lias u part that draws out her greatest powers. Blie sustains a oharacter
Id which she love and hates with equal eoso. Him Is a court beauty in iho time of Lewis
Mepoleonand Is assisting the French Minister of t'ollco to entrap a younr. Republican, but
Caiui In lovo with her victim and finds nor affections returned. Tho young Republican,
Rameau, Is entrapped butshooonceals nor truo character and Involves her entire fortune
torescuo him alter having pirsuaded him to Invest In "credit Laralne" worthless i look.
