The captivating and sent'jiiental
Itlanehe Sweat is seen at the Maui
theaters during the first half of the
next week as Karin Da'.oklas in "The
Sower," and, incidentally, is seen in
a role that is entirely different to any
thing in whicli she has previously ap
peared. Miss Sweet, in this offering,
wears some exquisite gowns and regal
plumage and wears them "to the
manner born." It is seldom that this
star appears in a role calling for elab
orate costuming and her many ad
mirers will be delighted to see her as
a Russian girl of the court set. The
other female artist, Mabel Van Duren,
ft' so wears a number of gowns that
are best described as gorgeous.
"The Sowers" is a story of intrigue
and plot for the overthrow of existing
conditions in. Russia. A prince of the
royal house (Thomas Meighan), his
chancellor (Theodore Roberts) and
the daughter of the latter (Rlanche
Sweet), are working with the League
of Freedom. The prince loves the
daughter of his chancellor, but is
forced to marry a princess for politi
cal reasons. The princess, in love
with a member of the secret po'lee,
works for the destruction of her hus
band and his friends. It Is a story of

thing in which this captivatin favor

real pathos hs well as genuinely de
lightful comedy. It is the fact of a
country girl whom poverty forces to
try her fortune in. New York. Upon
her arrival in the city her beauty at
tracts the attention of a band of vil
lains, who become instrumental in
subiectin her to a series of viclssit

dramatic in the extreme. A unique
fact connected with this unusual Para

the screen of one of New York City's
greatest department stores, in which
many of the more important scenes of
the play occur.
