Gainesville Thursday night.
Possibly the queerest character
imaginable Nobody was the mail,
one. He was a very tall, broad man
with a draped drab costume and in
the last two acts the same in green,
with a hood effect, and his arms were
generally folded. A green light was
kept constantly in his face, even when
Everywoman was present. He opened
and closed the play with these lines:
"Be merciful, be just, be fair
To Everywoman, everywhere;
Her faults are many. Nobody's the
He was a splendid actor, with a
deep, penetrating voice. His position
is rather hard to explain. He seemed

"Everywoman," played last night
by Miss Shay, was more of a char char-.

seldom addressed and then only by
Everywoman. In almost every in instance
stance instance when she waa addressed it was
not as the play actress, but the word3
seemed aimed personally at every
woman in the audience.
"Everywoman" can not be judged
too harshly for not recognizing Her

for while he pleaded in the play, she
actually did not see him; of course, it
was the fault of Flattery, a handsome
man who bowed and smiled at her in
her mirror. The last character in in-cidently

Everywoman gazed into it, he appear appeared,

not once did her eyes even rest on
him, so she was honest in her belief
she must search for him.
"The Quest" itself will have to be
left to the reader's imagination. She
returned, years later, led by Truth,
and there found Truth's son, waiting
at her fireside. The moral appeared to
be that it is much safer for a woman
to remain at home for her King Love,
that she loses much of the beautiful
in life by going in search of him.
