The Select feature, "The House of (Glass, screening at ' His Majesty's Theatre to-night and to-morrow night, will show Clara Kimball Young, it is stated, in a highly dramatic character as an innocent young girl whom circumstantial evidence convicts of com-: plicity in a jewel robbery. After serving a term iri prison she is released on parole, but has to report herself once a. week. In desperation she breaks her parole and disappears. Later, in the West, she marries a prominent business man without revealing the story of her past.' After a while his business brings him back to the town where she had been imprisoned,'and there she^ lives -in hourly dread of recognition by the police. This eventually occurs, and she is compelled to make a full confession to her hitherto unsuspecting husband. The story is full of dramatic situations, and pives Clau-a Kimball Young every opportunity for the display of her high artisti-7. The interest is intense throughout, and the play moves forward rapidly and convincingly. As usual with this star, the dresses are of the most elegant type, and the production is in first-class Select style.
