Colonial Theatre — Catherine Calvert, Wallace Reid, Mabel Normand, Alice Brady and White Heather to he Seen Next Few (Days i “The Career ot Katherine Bush.” Thursday Now, honestly folks, how many are , there of you who haven’t read at least ] one of Elinor Glyn’s famous books? Well, one of the greatest of them has been made ! into motion picture screen romance and it pulsates with the same emotions that have made her books the fascinating reading they are. Its called “The Career i of Katherine Bush” and features beauti I ful Catherine Calvert, a new face to Bel fast patrons. Come along for you’ll en joy it. And also one of those side splitting Mack Sennett comedies, “Reilly’s Wash ! Day.” -- Wall,ice Reid, Friday. i There is only one Wally Reid in motion pictures ana that accounts for his great ! popularity as every picture fan knows. Did you see him in “The Roaring I Road?” Wasn’t that a crackerjack? Did , you notice his class? He has one of these parts in “You’re h ired!” his latest starring vehicle based : upon one of O. Henry’s celebrated stories. It will be shown at our theatre next Eri , day. In this superb photocomedy. Mr. Reid : is seen as a young man in love with the i daughter of a stern railroad magnate who j withholds his consent to the marriage of his daughter until the young man has worked three months at some employ ment without being tired. That doesn’t mean much to most per sons, but it meant a great deal to a man of the stamp portrayed by Mr. Reid. Ho\V he wins out after many narrow es capes, some serious, others ludicrous, makes up one of the most delightful pic ture subjects ever shown at this or any other theatre. You will want to see this photoplay, ‘ for it is one of Wally's best. When we j say that, we say much. We will leave • ! the verdict to you. Don’t forget the date j aud don’t forget to come early. Mabel Nomiand, Saturday. If you have been harboring an army of glooms for a long time look out. Joy has gone rampant and will make your army of glooms look worse than the hun army. So don’t let gloom get the better of you, but come out of your shell and see Mabel Normand’s latest. Its named “A Perfect 36” and is sure a regular Mabel Normand picture that will be a source of delight to young and old. A Sunshine Comedy and Kinograms will also be shown. Alice Brady, Monday. “The World to Live In,” which Select Pictures oilers Monday, is one of the best Alice Brady pictures that has ever ap- ' , peared upon the screen. Miss Bradv has a role for which she is well fitted—that of a typical American girl whose one ambi tion is to get ail the fun she can out of life without paving for it. This particular young woman is of the Salamander type. She is forever playing with tire but I miraculously always escapes being burn ed. It is only when she finds true love that she learns that there is something more to life than merely getting all you ; can out of it. Miss Brady is ably assisted by a re markable cast, each excellently adapted for his or her particular role. Among those in the cast are W. P. Carleton, Jr., | and \ irginia Hammond, both well known ; on the legitimate stage; Earle Metcalfe, i Robert Sellable, Zyllah Shannon and Anne , Cornwall. Catherine Calvert, Tuesday. The vehicle selected for Catherine Cal vert’s new Prank A. Kenney production is a photoplay especially written for the popular star by E. Lloyd Sheldon, the famous playwright. The picture provides a modern story, the scenes of which are laid in the South at the present time. The story was picturized by Bennet Mus son, who has adapted for the screen a number of well known successes. The title of the photoplay is “Marriage for Convenience,” and Miss Calvert plays the role of Natalie Rand, a Southern so ciety belle. Sidney Olcott is responsible for the direction. Miss Calvert is finely supported in this splendid photoplay which will be shown Tuesday. Also Eddie Polo in another one of those ! exciting Cyclone Smith stories. “The White Heather,” Wednesday. Whole armies have seen duels in the j air. But a duel on the ocean’s bed—a fight to the death be'.ween divers at the bot [ tom of the sea —that, up to a few weeks 1 ago, was a scene which no one in the world had witnessed. It existed only in the wonderful magniatioii of Maurice iourneur, the great moving picture pro ducer. Now millions of theatregoers may view this thrilling scene, for Mr. Tourneur has put it into film form in his latest Para mount-Artcraft Special picture, “The White Heather,” which comes here on Wednesday. It was taken at the bottom of the Pacific ocean by cameramen inside the newly-invented Williamson subma rine apparatus. This is just one of many extraordinary bits of action in this production, which establishes beyond question the interna tional reputation of Mr. Tourneur as a producer of massive pictures. The dra matic story is based <>n the play of Cecil ; Raleigh and Henry Hamilton, which ran | with enormous success at the Drury Lane | Theatre in Loudon The same lavishness in big scenic effects, the same quality of . cast and the same artistry in production that characterized this director’s other famous pictures, “Sporting Life” and “The Blue Bird,” are found in this new triumph. If your heart is weak, don’t come. Otherwise be sure to see this gripping photoplay. WYMAN-FISHER. Mr. George C.

There were about 125 people at the gas conference in the armory last Tuesday evening. Mayor C. W. Wescott conducted the side of the citizens and Mr. Walter S. Wyman of Augusta, treasurer of the Penobscot Bay Electric Co., for the owners of the gas plant. It was a very friendly conference and both sides know more of the general situation thin they did. Mayor Wescott staled the conditions, the inconveniences to result if the gas was turned off on Dec. 1st. There are some 150 gas users and about 85 had agreed to make the change to electricity on a 50-50 basis, but that many of them, including those present, did not wish to make the change. The fact that the oompany were running the business at a loss also had a bearing on the case. He urged that the conference be friendly. Mr. Wyman said it would cost the company from $50,000 to $60,000 to put the plant in good condition and even then there was no assurance that it could be on a paying basis, or even break even. He read the loss by months and gave the totals of the last three years’ loss as follows: 1917, $2,749; 1918, $7,008; and for 8 months of 1919, $2,875. He would gladly wel ,ome any suggestion for the benelit of all concerned or the company would turn the plant over to any one man or company of men who would run it, and at the eud of the trial turn the plant back to its owners. Mr. Arthur Ritchie explained fully the dis satisfaction the citizens felt in the situa tion and said he had interviewed at least 50 of them and that a petition of that number was ready to be sent to t he Public Utilities Commission for a decision. He said that ail the changes proposed were not on a 50-50 basis. Mr. Wyman called on Mr. Patterson their representative who had this matter in charge and he said that the propositions were all on that basis. Mr. Ritchie called for the statements of the company previous to 1917, but they were not available. He said that if an equal amount of energy had been used in soliciting gas subscrib ers there would be many secured, and cited several streets where the pipes are not run. Mr. Wyman explained the cost of extension an i said it was not feasible. ; Others who spoke of the need of the use of gas tor cooking, heating and power were: James H. Howes, S. A. Parker, I.)r. ' W. L. West, Dr. O. S. Vickery, Rev. A. ! E. Wilson, Dr. E. A. Wilson, Charles R. Coombs (wtio owns a gas plant of his own because tfie company is not putting pipes on Northport avenue), Morris L. Slugg, George R. DoaK, Dr. Eugene D. Tapley. Dr. Tapley said it was -•»n imposition to the people to discontinue the gas service. Mr. Ritchie spoke a^ain in regard to the work of both gas and electrical appli ances. both Mayor Wescott and Mr. Wyman favored a committee to meet , members of the company for a further conference, and both spoke again in de fence of their respective sides of the case. The committee will be appointed by the j city government to settle the matter or ! refer to the Public Utilities Commission. No ache 1 he rational treatment for headache is to get at the cause, if possible, and remove ]t. Headache is only a symptom of trouble somewhere in- the system, and dosing’ with tablets or powders containing acetanilid or other coal-tar derivatives which stop the pain temporarily but weaken the heart, is at once unsafe and unwise. The' headache may come from your eyes, then a good oculist can help you at once with proper eyeglasses; but if it comes with furred tongue, loss of appetite, nausea, and constipation, it is usually the result of disordered digestion, or torpid liver, and one or two doses of “L.\-Atwood’s Medicine will speedily help you by carrying off im purities and restoring the clogged digestive organs to their normal activity. In using this old reliable remedy, you take no chances of weakening the heart’s action. You are not getting rid of your head ache for a day or two. you are getting at the cause of illness and creating a permanent improvement. For sixty years it has prove,! a safe and reliable standby for sick headache. Large bottles, small dose, fifty cents at any dealer's. The “L. F." Medicine Co., Portland, Maine.
