Strangely, enough this is not the first, time that ’Tish'' Jigs-; been turned into a play.

May Robson. Miss. Robson, opened in \Tish” at Powers Theatre in Chicago* and after a good-sized run a t that playhouse made a,* short-tour o f tlie South. The fol­ lowing- season she made a coast- to-coast tou» in \Tish\ playing,; to jh e absolute capacity of the, theatres she appeared in. i Since that time Mrs. Rinehart , has written many-more \Tish” stories, and it is these later and ; more modem tales that Alice T . . t Chadwicke has used as-a source There will be ^another Indoor , {or her 5 bright ^ exciting ’ comedy. Apparently, “Tish\ will never die. Recently Mrs. Rine­ hart's most popular heroine was bringing joy to thousands of listeners on the air with the. popular and talented Broadway actress, Marion ■ Barney, in one role of \Tish\,. These humorous stories have made millions of friends for Mrs. Rinehart. \Tish” is the. perennial spin­ ster, loves adventure, and always manages to get herself and her friends into a peck of trouble.
