The Abbot Circle 19 24 ' ®p ' -ffltHL )umb As the curtain slowly rose, we saw before us a laundry, and seated on various chairs, tables, and stools were some of its busy workers. After the first few sentences we knew we were in London. Mrs. Plun, Phyl Yates, told us about the weddin ' s and funerals of all her relations, and the girls talked about their beaus. Soon the conversation turned to Maudie, the poor girl who was working with them. They made fun of her imagination and her shirt. A year or more ago a man had left a shirt there, and Maudie had carefully washed and ironed it each day. While they were talking, Madeleine Howard as Maudie came in. Maudie busied herself with her work and, when asked where she was going on the holiday, and who was going to take her out, had to confess that she had no one. Poor little thing, she was a workhouse orphan, and had never known love and care of any sort. The girls, Celeste and Rose, twitted Maudie about the shirt, and learned that the owner ' s name was Mr ' Orace Germsmith. Maudie wove a tale about him as a fairy prince. The girls refused to believe it, and decided to leave their work for the day. Maudie was left alone, and while working around the laundry, who should come in but our A. D. Estes as Mr ' Orace. After much boasting on the part of the hero, and pleading on that of the heroine, Mr. ' Orace consented to take Maudie out. But she felt that he was ashamed of her. And as her sense of pride would not allow her to accept his invitation, she suddenly refused to go and ' Orace, offended, left. As he went out of the door she sank to the floor in a sobbing heap, all her beautiful hopes dashed to the ground. As the curtain dropped we felt the sense of admiration she had awakened in the hero, but we saw that she could never know of it. 79

The Abbot Circle 19 24 | IE 1 - - ' -3 n ■ .» — — W M , . .. ■ : QL )t Jfar ump nntebs All her life Princess Von Yeldern had been kept away from the world in a lonely palace. Her life was an unhappy one. She was destined to marry an old German count, many years her senior, and about whom she cared nothing. One day the princess stopped at a little mountain inn to pass the afternoon quietly and obscurely with her guardian. After she had been sent to bed, she crept down to the veranda to get some air. She met there a young poet who was gazing through a telescope in search of his far away Princess. The two commenced a conversation in which the princess took a great delight since she was never allowed to converse with people in such an unconventional way. The poet told her his secret, that he was madly in love with a princess; a real princess! Every day he saw her in her window in her lonely, isolated palace by gazing through this telescope. The young man, completely ignorant of the identity of his young friend, raved about his princess. Oh! He knows this girl had never known a real true princess as he had. It was very amusing to hear the poet rave, to see the poor astonished girl while the audience knew all the time thai the ideal princess of the poet was only two feet from him. Baroness Von Brack, having discovered that her precious charge was not soundly asleep but missing, came out on the veranda. The Baroness, shocked and terrified, ordered the Princess to go inside and the poet to leave immediately. It was really sad when the two young people were parted for the poet had begun to love the princess for her own sake, and the poor princess had been happy for one of the few times in her life.

The Abbot Circle 19 24 Wi)t Host g ilfe ftat " The Lost Silk Hat " is a one-act comedy with a very subtle and amusing plot. The curtain rises; enter Lois Babcock as the hero. The young man has just quarrelled with his sweetheart and has sworn " to join the Bosnians and die in Africa. " He fi nds that in his haste he has left his silk hat behind him and then follow several amusing incidents resulting from his attempts to find some one to get his hat for him. First enters Mary Simpson as the laborer, but in vain does the young man beg him to enter the house and recover the lost hat. The laborer " doesn ' t like this job " and slouches away. Then comes the clerk, Peggy Wilson, but he too refuses to take any part whatsoever in helping the now frantic hero to recover his hat and he passes on. Now comes Migs Hawkes as the poet with his many flowery and eloquent speeches and he offers gladly to be of assistance if only a suitable plan can be devised. But none of the schemes thought of seem to be of use and so at last, the young man decides that he must get it himself. The poet remon strates profusely but to no avail, for the young man " can not be seen in the streets of London without a hat " and since no one will get it for him, he must get it himself. He enters the house and the poet waits outside to see what will happen next. Soon the labourer, the clerk, and the policeman, Virginia Thompson, come on the stage and are just in time to hear the strains of a duet. The poet declares that " romance is dead " for in his opinion to marry is much less romantic than to go and " die for a hopeless love in Africa.

Melinda Judd As the curtain rises, we are confronted by the scene of a small but well-kept interior of a lighthouse, situated in Boston Harbor. The furnishings of the room are rather meager, a table on which there rests an old-fashioned oil lamp, a small fireplace surmounted by a mantel containing a few books, and a few chairs placed about the room add to its atmosphere of comfort. 80
