At the Tremont Monday night Frank Mayo presents his dramatization of Mark Twain's story, "Pudd'nhead Wilson." The tale is that of a simple, great-souled Missourian whose neighbors think he amounts to nothing and always will, and who turns out to be ingenious. There is said to be much of pathos in the humor and quaintness with which this character has been transferred to the stage, and there is a novelty in substituting for the identifying mole the individuality of the thumb-lines.
