Marie Doro la a dainty little person, with
many ways that charm and others that
morely please. And as the play he is pre
senting has no serious moments, she gets
plenty of chance to be both charming and
pleasing. "The Richest Olrl" Is a comedy
that would be decidedly enjoyable If It
were boiled Into a single act; In Its present
form It Is rather tenuous, and it puts al
moat too much of a burden on the players
to ask them to sustain the Interest through
four long acts. In places It Is cleverly
rltten and In others It Is so manifestly
strung out as to put considerable reaponsl
blllty on one's politeness. The Idea Is that
of a v(Ty much peMed parnpered and
feneraiIy gpoiied young woman, In every
way adorable, save only that she Is thor-
grajuated from the university luto a clerk-
ghtp ln the Ministry of Agriculture, and
who spends his vacations ln a cottage en
tlrely Isolated from the world, ln order that
he may have Quiet. He Is affianced to the
daughter of his chief, who Is also quite or
derly in habits of mind and body. And
the coming of the daughter of the chocolate
king, quite by accident, Into his life, sets
Its current to running ln an entirely differ
enl direction, and her own as well. And ln
the end they are married.
It Is along the way from meeting to
denouement that the real Interest In tha
affair Is found. Tho young man has an
artist friend, who isn't a bad sort; who
has some talent, an inordinate ambition end
just a little more than a smattering of
worldly wisdom. This young man sets
about to turn a chance meeting to his own

the chocolate king's daughter to Invade the
sanctum of the clerk, and as a result the
latter is not only dismissed by the girl he
was to marry, but Is also dismissed from
the service of the goerr.ment. The girl
finds some consolatlcn for l.er loss In the
person of the count who was to marry th
chocolate lady. But before ho leaves tl'e
office forever tho clerk turns on the
chocolate lady and gives her a piece of hii
mind, mainly to the effect that sho Is scl
fish and heartless, and has wrecked hla
life for a mere caprice and some other
thirgs, good for her to know. This change
her, and she determine to become a nun.
But before ah take the final vows she
Is induced to try being a bride first, and
the clerk take on a fine chance of becom-
b.g Interested In the chocolate business
Some very laughable situation are de
veloped, some ludicrous ahd aome ridi
culous. The Incidents follow fast enough
to keep- tbe action of the play .generally
In motion, and where they lng, the actors
are callod upon to sustain interest by sheer
cleverness. And It Is this way that the
strength of the company Is best employed.
Miss Doro Is not aa yet quUft equal to
heavy work, but in the lighted passage of
h .h. i Aiihfni h. hm a nuaint
nttl8 way of ,ayng things that gives to
the' words she speak a saucy fillip, and her
laugh and general bearing are, quito ln
ken1nsr with the role. Her meekness In
the last act Is so plainly assumed as to
make It about the most laughable thing
Mr. Johnson is the same painstaking
actor we have always known in him. Hi
forte Is hardly comedy, much less farce
comedy, and yet he gives a most satis
factory performance. Once or twice In
the course of the play ho Is allowed to let
hi rich voice out in all its fullness, but
for the most part it 1 hidden under the
whimsical character he ha taken on.' And
the rest of tha company la In keeping with
the leads. The cast contains many names
well knewn, and each does his or her part
so well that no fault mayjie found with
the result. The piece la staged with car.
It waa a fashionable audience that filled
the Boyd theater last night, and while
Its enthusiasm did not at any time beocm
l ntontrollable, it wa suficient to require
many curtain calls at the close of each
act in order to fully express the appreci
ation of the effort of the young star and
