"He's the happiest man you evtr

"All day Friday he went around whist

paradise on earth."
From his story told to Captain
Campbell It was learned that before
the man left Colorado he was a miner
earning fair wages. One day there
was an explosion and four fingers were
blown off one hand and an eye put
out. There were other injuries be
sides nnd a long siege in a hospital
followed, taking all his pavings. Then
he started to California, the land ;>f
promise, where there would surely be
work and plenty. On the way he was
unfortunate and unable to get work

live like the ordinary hobo much of
the time. ■■'

A shoemaker, a tailor and a sewing

PLENTY OF BLOOD AND THUN
DER IN GRAND'S BILL
MELODRAMAS OPEN FOR WEEK
Burbank's Offering, "Lost In the Dea.
ert," is as Original In Many
Respects as Title
As a melodrama "The Black Hand,"
has unusual claims on the attention of
the class of theatergoers who enjoy that
style of play. It is a story well con
ceived and cleverly wrought out, and it
has enough blood and thunder to satis
fy the most extravagant demands for
revolvers and long, ugly looking knives.
In addition It Is well acted through
out. Almost every principal In the cast
displays remarkable talent for that par
ticular style of work. Some of them
flnd'dlfhculty -with the negro part and
tha coarse comedy, but in view of the
almost continuous audible appreciation
of the audience these cannot be con
sidered as faults.
It Is a »tory of a feud In Kentucky
hills, and the theme is not new In Loa
Angeles. The hero returns to his home
to fall in love with a daughter of the
enemies' ' house, and these modern
Capulets and Montagues have a time
that is strenuously In keeping with the
spirit of the age.
Richard .Buhler does particularly good
work as the hero of the play. Both he
and Ethel Clifton have won a warm
place in the hearts of the Grand pat
rons In the few weeks they have been
John Harrington deserves praise for
his finished melodramic art In the
"heavy" role. The others of the cast
are good, and the play is well staged.
Burbank's Bill Good
