"The Family" Will Play First
Half of Next Week.
Local theatre goers will have an op-
ortunity to see Henry Miller's latest j
success "The Famiiy" the first half of j
next week at Boyd's theatre, in (tmu- J
ha, beginning Saturday night, April , j
22th. The new play was produced in ;
in Chicago last month anil scored an in-;
Htant success. The critics of that city j
proclained "The Family" as virile a J
drama as "Paid in Full," or other re-1 J
cent American successes, and muchj
healthier in tone. "It is," says the
Chicago Daily News, "A beautiful
homespun genuine drama. Henry Mil
ler has introduced his line play to a
pympathetic public. A more intensely
moved, emotionally absorbed and de
lighted audience could scarcely have
been built to order." "It gripped ami
moved the audience last night," says
the Chigago Tribune, "as an audience
at Power's has not been gripped and
moved in a lorg time, and tears and
laughtar were blended throughout the j
entire performance. Of such plays we

able adjectives for "Ihe Family' " says j J
the Chicago Inter Ocean, "it is native
in every stroke of its simplicity and;?
close to the hearts of the people with
its alternating moods and sorrow and
mirth." The Chicago Examiner says:
"Humor, easy to the point of topical
ness, guides and guards against the
common place. And it also saved the
little tragedy from striking too hard.
Women won't stay away from 'The
Family,' and that will make it one of

They story of the play tells of a
young girl who became infatuated with
the drum major of a traveling minstrel
show and elopes w ith him. The girl's
mother discovers that there has been
no marriage, and without appealing to
either her husband or her son, takes
the affair into her own hands. The
last scene of the play has been called
by the critics the most beautiful do
mestic picture ever presented on the
stage. During the Chicgo run it evoked
a remarkable series of last act curtain
falls, and the audience seemed reluct
ant to leave the theatre at the end of
the beautiful play. Like Henry Miller's
other noted success, "The Servant in
the House," which was presented at
Iloyd's theatre for a week last Janu

before the closing hour and carried it

state-wide prohibition, because it can
not be enforced, but I am in favor of
