You can't Improve on that If you tnlk nil nlarht." Tim Itti.o Work. He grinned reluctantly. "Oh! You know what I menn, perfectly. But I think you're rlTht In this particular case.

"If you were looking for a furnish ed apartment with a trained maid, now," Lillian said demurely. ". could recommend this one very highly." The amazed look which crossed Dicky's face wna ludicrous. 'What what do you mean?" he stammered. "Why, I've been wantln? to get Mar lon away from the city for some time, twit didn't see how I could go far, my self, and Madge assures me that you , mother and her father would be de i light-V to have Marlon down there for a few week.

Madge and I can divide our time be tween Marvin and her with trips, on the side in search of homes for both of us." For a tens second I wondered whether her ruse would succeed. Bui we were not long left In doubt. Dicky rose, walked over to Lillian's chair, pulled her to her feet, and gave her a mighty hj and a smacking kiss that almost could have been heard In the street. "You're always the little life-saver, Lil, I'll tell the worl!" he excaimed. "I'm not golnc to stand on any cere mony In accepting your plan. And I needn't ask Madge how she'd like It.

FROM BROADWAY AT THE PALACE, j Charles Ray's verson of "Forty- i Five Minutes From Broadway.' the George M. Cohan classic which he has adapted to the screen, in being kept close to tho original form which had such tremendous success during the years of its stage vogue. The wide popularity of the original Cohan play and the star'a recognition of its value in the form known to a vast pub lic, has convinced Its producers that the biggest success would attend a screen version following closely the lines of the popular stage piece. "Forty-Five Minutes From Broad-way" is the first of the star's new productions to be presented by Arthur S. Kane for First National releas. It will be shvwn at the Palace Tuesday and "Wednesday. The sponsors of Mr. Ray's initial picture stressed the point that a too greatly altered photoplay adaptation of the Cohan piece was contrary to the country-wide value 6f this well known comedy-drama. The Keith vaudeviKe bill for the first half of the week features that classical musical comedy, "Nearly a Prince," vrltfx Mg clever caat and special scenery galore. Other acts in clude Jarrows, the man with the lemonBro-wn and Taylor In new songs and talk; and Ross and Foss In a pleasing musical offering. FIVE VAUDEVILLE ACTS n' CORA MOORE, New York's Fashion Authority. In a new collection of frocks espec ially designed by Mood for Pair Beach there are two harem skir frocks. As Mood is always ahead o Mode this may be taken to Indicate that harem effects are likely to be a vogue for some time. But the Idea Is that some new feature must be Intro duced to carry it. Rows of fringe, from an inch to four inches deep, winding spirally around a harem skirt, from the lowest one which falls below the hem, up the whole length or some part of It, is one of the ne-w modifications, and Il lustrated Is another. Here a flesh-colored chiffon with oval-shaped motifs embroidered in beads is used with graduated lace flounces let In In a double row down either side. In still another harem skirt & very full jabot of exquisite lace was Intro duced in similar fashion, each scallop of the lace dangling a small pearl bead. HAllTFOKD TODAY CONTINUOUS C. D.

Hoyt's company is putting; on a bet ter bill this wemk. "Varieties of 1921" Is the musical comedy which will be seen tonight and tomorrow, and "Greenwich Village Follies" will be presented tho second half of the week. 1 A photoplay unusual enough to lift It above the (verage - screen offering and thrilling enough to keep theater goers Interested Ufromgh every foot of the picture ha$ been produced by Uni versal In Harry Carey's latest starring vehicle. "Bullet Proof." "This picture is being shown the first half of this week. The plot centers about Pierre, studying for the priesthood. He leaves" the church and forgets his early re ligious training when he learns that his father has been killed by a notor ious gunman. He pledges himself to avenge his parent. On a mountainside, at night, Pierre comes upon a girl held fast by a land slide. While he Is trying to save her, the huge mass of dirt and rocks movec farther down the slope burying tho wo completely. Alice Lake, who was seen last week i "The Misflt Wife," comes to the Lyceum the second half of the werjk n "Should a Woman Tell?" In no way a problem or propaganda play, this picture presents the emotions in a woman's heart when torn between her desire for truth and her fear of the loss of the man she loves more than life Itself. . OX BILL AT FOXS The live acts of vaudeville at Fox's the first half of the week are "all en tertaining ' numbers. Joe Sheftal & Company presents a. lively act. It is a 10 member team of colored enter tainers with songs, dances and comic dialogue. Barnes and Harris present a piano and vocal number, feturlng "When I Lost You, Mother O'Mine." These men were co-partners in writ ing this song. "Oh Gee, (Say Gee" and a Hebrew character song, "I'm In Love" are other numbers of theirs that go well. Renoma is a young woman, evidently with a rubber spine, judging from her contortions. She is also a juggler. Miss Mae Russell has several good songs and a monologue, her best offering being "That Irish Mother of Mine." Lorimer and Car breyz offer a distinct novelty. They have a rapid fire selection of songs and Jokes, all of which are given in accompaniment to their eccentric dancing. They dance up and down stairs, ladders, etc., keeping time to the jazz of the orchestra. Ever hear of a man, disappointed in love who tried to persuade a gunman to kill him? Owen Moore, in "The Poor Simp," the feature picture at Fox's, tries this and has a terrible time, first trying to get "bumped off" and ,then trying not. The cause of the trouble is when, on receipt of bad news, he deodes life isn't worth liv ing. A gangster is hired to accom plish his demise but in a manner un known to him. The thug agrees then comes the good news that the bad news s not really bad news but Is good news. Moore tries to head off the gunmen but with no luck at all until a series of laugh-provoking in cidents solve tne delema and reunites the hero with his sweetheart. Other reels are the bi-weekly Penrod story a Chester Outing Trayelorue, Episode Six of Fantomaa and the Fox News. Beginning Thursday afternoon the vaudeville will have six big acts and the feature picture will be ve.rsatile George Walsh n "Number 17." CAPITOL "Bubbles," as joyous ond melodious as "Not Yet, Marie" and produced likewise by Charles B. Maddock, Is a miniature musical comedy with twenty in the company of song and dance artists. "Four Jacks and a Queen," a splendid male quartet and a real queen of song and beauty, Dunbar and . Turner are song and dance creators; Ted and Corinne Briton are "The Whole Show" with their varied offerings and Stanley and Wllburne in their wire stunts, are really comedians of the air.
