try estate, belonging to Horr Krafft.
Tho lattor is also dissatisfied with his
property,' his crops are bad, tho forest
ho has depended on for timber Is ex
hausted, and ho realizes that the fol
lowing year it would require a fortune
to keep tho estate running. Ho Is
thoroughly disgusted and Is more than
willinc to exchange Ludorsdorf for

which results in a surprise to tho
young ladles, Hugo, and tho audloncqi
A mistake of tho young ladles in tho
Identity of Drossol gives rise' to a very
comical situation. After much oxer-
tton and many .difficulties, such as Ihe
breaking down of a bridge, and wading
over a mdfaBS for a half an hour, Horr

A graud mixup occurs when Seidel In

The fourth ad last act opehs;on
scono in Mr. Krafft's house, Koopnlck
erstrasse 120. Hoping to profit by tho
city's plan to open a street through
this property, Seldol persuades Krafft
to soil It to him, and at the same time
announces Rosa's engagement to
Hugo, thus causing innumerable mis
understandings and confusion. It de
velops, however,- that Koepnlckor
strasse 110 will be torn down to build
a .now street, nrid Mr. Soldol's little
plan js spoiled. He now attempts to
sell tho house back to Krafft and
Brohse, but neither will have It at
any price. Brohso's interest in Krafft's
son's, Hugo's, engagement, causes
Krafft considerable surprhso, who, of
course, believes that Rosa and Hugo
nre engaged. Finally all mistakes aro
rectified, nnd everyone, except Seidel,
Is happy, and both pairs 6f lovers are
happily united.
