" The Detroit Free Press in speaking of ' Burr Oaks" combination, has the folowing praise for thein: The interesting Irama of " Burr Oaks" was revived at White's Theater last night in the presence of an audionce that nearly fllled the immense auditorium. The scenio effects are a trifle lees heavy and pretrntions ;han they were last season, but there is quite euough in that way to give the ilay all needed embellishmeDts ; and he story ís one of continuous and ihnlling interest . Eyery act and every scène was received with many complimentary demonstrations last night. The principal parto are capably acted by Vliss Genevieve llogers, Walter Owen, Miss Morah Eilis-Byan, Sam Ryan, W. J. Holten and Miss Irene Worrell-Holon.

Oenevieve Rogere' impersouatioi if Blaggie Oabs is ueat, intelligent anc sympathetic, and Mr. Owen's Burr Oaks has Borne notable touches. The ladies and gentlemen of the company all work wcll together, and the result of thei joint endeavor is an agreeable and mov ing representation of drama that posses sea o, largo inherent interest.
