Some attempt should be made to give the Indian a more Indian-like appearance. While playing as a more Indian-like appearance. While playing as a halfbreed, he is more the “greaser” in looks, and with a crafty expression and walk, spoils the program announcement that he is a full blooded Indian.
The play is a mixture of comedy, romance and melodramatics, excellently played by the principals. The atmosphere of the West is given without being forced, and this is supplied to some extent by the setting, while the dressing is doubtlessly accurate, Miss Spellmeyer makes a sweet-looking orphan in search of her father who died unknown to her in Texas some time before she arrived. The ranger of whom she seeks information (Mr. Middleton) falls in love, and the comedy is derived from his awkward lovemaking which is finally declared in song through his full baritone voice. The treachery of the Indian and his attempted revenge upon the girl, coupled with the cowboy's arrival at the critical moment resulting in the double-shotted death of the redman, with a brief but very expressive union between the lovers, give a good finale which received several curtain calls Tuesday evening.
As a type of play now popular “A Texas Wooing” should be in demand.
