Tho rear addition to tho room oc
cupied by the Weingand store has
been completed, with the oxception of
tho motal ceiling, and has been shelved

"The Fortune Hunter."
"The Fortune Hunter," Winchell
Smith's comedy, which comes to tho
Keith next Saturday evening is one of
tho choicest offerings in the lino of
comedy unfolded upon tho Ameriean
stage In many seasons. It's genuinely
humorous types, familiar to residents of
small towns, is delightfully amusing and
interesting, and at the same time points
out a moral to yOuths. "The Fortune
Hunter," Nat Duncan, whose only assot
is that ho is a college graduate, with a
room mato who is a successful broker
and is willing to "stake" him. The
broker, Henry Kellogg, finally tires of
tho generosity. Also, ho has in mind
tho future of young Duncnn. Therefore,
Kellogg maps out a program for tho
no'or do well. "Go to some small
country town, cut out drinking, smoking
and cussing, dress plain, but in tho very
bost taste, seek employment, go to
church, and in a very snort time the
richest girl in town is sure to proposo
to you. In order to start you right I
will advance you a loan sufficient to last
you for a month. After you have won
tho heiress pay me back my loan and
$1000 in addition. This, I think, a fair,
business proposition" All of this isun
folded very amusingly jn tho first act.
Act 2 Bhows a typicnl drug store of a
town tho slzo ot Radvillo, Pa. Nat
Duncan is a clerk with all thoughts of
past luxury at tho expense of Ins Wall
street broker forgotten. SpmGraham,
a lovable old druggist, while working
on invontions that never "panned out"
let his shop run down and into debt
until Blinky Lockwood, tho village
banker who holds a mortgage on the
place threatens to sell. Duncan out of
"stake 2" lifts the mortgage and orders
stock for tho store for which old Gra
ham makes him an equal owner. It is
horo that he meets the heiress who is
to propose, but he is smitten with Betty
Graham, the demure daughter of the
uruggist. uo Knows no is not playing
tho gome of flnanco and lovo outlined
to him by his broker friend, but ho
really is in lovo with tho druggist's
daughter. Act 3 shows tho results of
his business acumen. The old dru?
store is transformed into tho "finest in
tho state" Here Kellogg appears to
collect his loan and tho foe. Also ap
pears Betty Graham just from college
where tho profits of tho now drug store
sent her. Duncan agrees to pay Kellogg
but refuses to marry tho heiress.
Kellogg knows tho reason. Act 4 shows
tluJGraham homo purchased by tho sale
of an Invention, and in tho pouring rain
Botty agrees to marry Nat.
