Unlike the ordinary run of dramas the
plots of which are generally laid amid
the htti Iv burly rush of city life or the
excitment of the western mines or plains,
the plot of Hal Ried's beautiful play,
Roanoke*which is to be presented iu
Medford, Monday Sept. 24th. by the W.
I. Swaiu Co., takes one back to the sun-
ny south where amid the fields of cotton
the gardens full of roses and palm trees, j
the air filled with the sceut of the fra-
grant magnolia and pines, a beautiful
story full of heart interest and iuter-
speis d with flashes of pure wholesome
comedy, is told. The Swain Company
cotnes highly recommended by both
press and public in the cities where they
have appeared. They travel iu their
own private cars, and carry one car load
of scenry' and effects which makes it
possible for them to give the product-
inn in detail the same as in the larger
chies they play.
