It will be scarcely necessary to more than announce Clay Clement's coming to Algona to insure a crowded opera house. His presentation of the "New Dominion" last year was the finest thing ever seen in Algona, and his "Southern Gentleman" is said to be an even better drama than the "New Dominion." The Omaha Bee, commenting upon Clay Clement's "A Southern Gentleman," said editorially: "We want to make a prediction. It is that Clay Clement, who last night produced at Boyd's opera house his own play, ' A Southern Gentleman," will not only become one of America's greatest actors, but will also be known as one of America's greatest playwrights. 'A Southern Gentleman,' in sentiment, action, humor, and human interest is as far above the ordinary drivel and rot so common upon the stage today as the heavens are above the earth." It is said that In no play heretofore offered has southern atmosphere and southern sentiment been so happily combined into a story of intense interest as has been done by Clay Clement in his play "A Southern Gentleman." The play'was only seen in one southern city last season, Louisville, Ky., where it was the subject not only of the most extended and'favorable criticism, but it was editorially commented upon by Mr. Waterson himself in the Courier Journal.
