nils city Is to have Its first
glimpse of a remarkable play when
“The House of Glass’* comes to the
Sherman opera house tonight. Cohan
and Harris produced the piece at the
Candler Theatre, New York, last
geptemlier and It ran throughout the
season, an achievement In Itself suf-
ficiently noteworthy to create a de-
sire on the i»rt of every play-goer
to grasp the first o|>portunity to wit-
ness the performance. Max Marcin,
a newcomer in the field of play milk-
ing, Is the author and he is said to
have touched life at so many novel
angles? In the new piece that the de-
mand for products of his pen bus
already far exceeded the physical pos-
sibility of fulfillment. “The house
of Glass,” as its title Implies. ex-
poses the futility of any human being
attempting to defy the trite aphorism,
“People who live In Glass Houses
should not throw stones.” It not
alone tells a story of all-absorbing
interest but treats It In a dramatic
slant new to stage-craft and produces
a thrill or a laugh at the most unex-
pected moments throughout, the four
acts. To relate the tale In advance
would have a tendency to detract from
the enjoyment of the auditor, but it
may be safely said that the entire
guinut of emotion Is traversed anil
that there Is in the play food for the
consumption of every human being
from the tired business man to the
ulert student of psychology. An ex-
cellent company of players is promis-
ed und a scenic embellishment of a'u

Lov* and a Ring.
The story of one woman’s pride and
devotion comes out of a jeweler’s shop.
A young man bought an engagement
ring. Apparently he was an impecuni-
ous young man. At any rate he ordered
an imperfect diamond, in less than a
week his fiancee called at the shop
“Is this a flawless diamond?” she
asked. “I want an honest answer.”
She got it j.
"I thought so," she said. ’’Poor fel-
low! I don't blame him. He did tbe
best he could. I don’t care for myself,
but I hare friends who are good Judges
of diamonds, and It would nearly kill
me for them to find out that he gave
me a cheap ring. Will you take this
stone out and replace It with a first
class diamond? He will never know
the difference. 1 will pay tbe bill.”
The substitution was effected, and
that young woman is now proudly
showing her ring,—New York Times.
