pictures .[has been as meteoric as her success on the dramatic stage, will be seen in anew Mfetro-comedy, "Opportunity," at His Majesty's Theatre tonight and on Monday night. Miss Dana's new vehicle is said to be. one of the most amusing and entertaining stories she has ever done. In "Opportunity," Miss Dana plays a tomboy, Mary Willard. The complications in which her hoyden inclinations involve her makes Mary a most delightful and winning heroine.
