Merthyr Ejectment Order
Merthyr Ejectment Order. DEPUTY-STIPENDIARY AND CLERK DISAGREE. In the case of Jeffries versus Baker, held at the Merthyr Police Court on Friday, an ejectment order was re- quested by the former. Mr. J. Plewa allowed the tenant six weeks to quit the house. Mr. Tom Elias (Magistrates' Clerk) pointed out that the Bench had no power to grant a longer period than 30 days according to the law, and stated that if the police were to execute a warrant after that period they would be liable to an action. Mr. Plews, however, refused to give way, and adhered to his decision. Merthyr Electric Theatre. Coming shortly- Henry Porten in "FACING ETERNITY."

Theatre Royal. For the first four nights this week a comedy "Mr. Smith," from the Comedy Theatre, London, has held the boards, and for to-night and to-morrow (Saturday), "Leah Kleschna will be presented. This is one of the most popular productions seen at Merthyr, and is sure to command large audiences. Mr. S. R. Squires' Company is excellent. "THE QUAKER GIRL" At the Theatre Royal next week. Demure, but irresistible, thiis quaintly charming Girl" is the greatest of the Adelphi successes in musical comedy during this decade. Mr. Lionel Monckton, the composer of The Quaker Girl," has never written fresher or more piquant music. The book is by Mr. James T. Tanner, the lyrics by Adrian Ross and Percy Green bank, past masters in the art of writing witty and humorous verses. A fascinating waltz song is especially de- lightful, and among other pleasing numbers are the duet, "The Bad Boy and the Good Girl, the songs "A Quaker Girl," Just as Father used to do," "Come to the Ball," "Take a Step," and a winsome concerted piece, "Tip Toe." The "leit motif" of the piece is demureness. a demureness that is roguishly sly. but never un- pleasantly so. Prudence (the Quaker Girl) is bewitching, whether in garb of russet brown, in her own native village, or pearly grey in the costumier's salon in Paris. The stow in a word is of a Quaker Girl, who is carried from her native village in England by a Parisian dress- maker to Paris, where the Quaker Girl, and mode. instantly become the rage. The Quaker Girl has long been mis- understood. Because she belongs to a sect of religious rules and teachings, she has been looked upon as a prude- an old maid before her time—as one who misses the sweets of life. No greater mistake could be made. The Quaker Girl is demure, artless, irresist- able, and finds happiness in life in her own way. The Quaker Girl is wholly lovable a fragrant lily—dainty—with a grace all her own. To look upon her is to feel rejuvenated. The Prudence Pym—for that is her name—in this particular story, has many lovers the other side of the foot- lights, and if she does indeed" courb in silence." is not silence golden? Seats should be secured early, as the demand is sure to be great. Box office open daily 10 to 2 p.m.
