The story is clearly brought out, and the sandstorm incident is glossed over for a few seconds by the picture machine without realism attempted. The stage setting answers in a nondescript fashion, and the company is capable, but the exigencies of the reduction have given the regimental colonel his sergeant’s duties, which comes under the head of “privileges.”
The Keeney audience gave three curtain calls and liked both the playlet and the actress from the commencement.
The dramatic fnale gives a good vaudeville finish, but Miss Claude's voice and emotional powers do not rise to the opportunities of the piece. These are the drawbacks, and possibly may prove serious.
