Miss Mary Gannon, the gushing, jovial pet of New York comes next. She is a rare example of the power of nature ; her acting is not acting-it is a perfect photograph; she does not assume a character-she is the character, and forces you to forget the individual you see, for the one the authors drew. In her peculiar line she has no rival, and we have not yet had enough of her.
