"Courage Of Silence"
The above is the title of what is
claimed by the producers to be one
of the best productions of the year.
It will be seen in Kahului tonight, and
in Wailuku tomorrow.
Bitter indeed were the dregs of her
empty marriage into which she was
forced for political reasons. But her
fiery spirit rebelled, and she allowed
herself to love an American. He,
weakly nattering his vanity, accepts
her regards until she discovers his
own family tiies. What was 6he to do?
She had abandoned her brutal husband
and now refused to go with the Amer
ican. She had one alternative. She
became a nurse. He dared not return,
to face his family. He took a trip
abroad to forget. But when his child
fell ill, Mercedes coming as a nurse,
makes the greatest sacrifice a woman
Filled with genuine human pathos,
and heart interest, this feature will
well up your eyes and bring a lump to
"The Lonesome Chap"
Stuart Kirkwood, a wealthy young
m'.ner, built for himself a big home in
the hills in preparation for his mar
riage to Teggy Carter, the daughter
of a neighbor. Peggy meets George
Ilothwell, a mining promoter, and, on
the eve of her wedding, flees with him.
At the station they meet Rothwell's
wife. Teggy starts to return home,
pursued by Uothwell. Rothwell is
thrown over a cliff and in attempting
to save him they both lose their lives
At the same time, in attempting to
rescue imprisoned miners, Victor d
Armand, a mtaer, is injured and be
fore he dies Stuart Kirkwood promises
to look after his daughter, Renee
While at school Renee meets George
Rothwell, Jr., son of the man who had
wrecked Stuart's happiness. Roth
well falls in love with Renee and when
he is invited to Stuart's home in com
pany with some other school friends
for a birthday party he proposes to
Feeling that the second love of his
life is lost .Stuart prepares to leave
for a long trip, when he comes upon
Renee, sobbing her heart out over
the fact that Stuart will not show any
love for her, and it is not until Stuart
takes her into his arms that he realizes j
Renee has loved him always.
"The Lonesome Chap" will be shown
at the Lyceum on Saturday and at the
Orpheum on Sunday.
The Tuesday offering at the Orphe
um, and Wednesday at the Lyceum is
the edition de luxe of "The Spoilers".
While the original edition was a suc
cess In every way, the producers felt
there was something lacking and
"tried again." In the second edition
there are but few changes in the cast
and these for the belter. Farnum still
appears as Glenister, while Kathlin
Williams has been added, essaying the
role of Cherry Malotte, the dance hall
girl who plays such a prominent part
in the screen story.
It is likely that the fight scene in
"The Spoilers" has called for more
comment than any one scene ever
photographed. In the present offering
the ficht scene stands out above all

'Sleeping Fires", the Tuesday and
Wednesday attraction at Maui theat
ers ,is a Tauline Frederick starring
vehicle which lacks the dramatic
strength and tensity of "Bella Donna,"
Zaza," or "The Slave Market," but
which, nevertheless, offers plenty or
opportunity for M!s Frederick to dis
play her talent.
One of the outstanding features of
the work of this star in this particu
lar offering is the complete change
of character from any of her pre
vious bMlings. Here she is seen as
the devoted young wife and mother,
scorned for another but fighting for
her own flesh and blood. The plot is
sufficiently deep to create a couple
of strong characters and Miss Fred
erick is splendid in one of these while
the other is ably handled by Thomas
MeiEhan. another big favorite. Adv.
