AT THE NOVELTY.
Well supplied with funny situations, ex
ceptionally well stocked v.th the cold
cu.ila of mother-in-law rule and most
promisingly well adapted to tbe demand
for liiht girly-girly exhibitions, the tab
loid performance, "Who's Kour Friend?
at the Novelty the last of this week Is In
keepln with the usual good musical com
edy stuff. The fact that Manager Max
well Is forced to close the doors of the
theater during the first performance is In
dicative of the manner in which the pa
trons are crowding the popular play house
on the Eighth-Quincy corner.
"WTio's Your Friend?" deals with a.
mother-in-law-pecked husband of the well
knnwn tvne. He has a lealous but pow
erful prettv w.-e. He also has a picture
of a Turkish harem girl. The picture
comes to life and he is confronted with a
problem of dealing with the scantily
clothed girl to the satisfaction of his
wife's mother, who is a staunch member
of the purity league. The comedy settles
around the harem eirt and the tactics of
obby Stewart as a hall boy and Billy
Wjra as the butler.
Plentv of clever work Is staged by
Pobbv Stewart and Billy Wyse also by
the character sontra of Eric Carle. Th
narem girl. Gertrude Earle. Is endowed
with a daintv figure, pretty hair and a
natural lisp. Archie Foulk. the son-in-law

When the curtain- rises- on "Little
Women" at the Grand Saturday the
audience will see reflected both in stage
furnishings and stage costuming the
fashions of the early sixties, ifte fur
niture is really old. The pictures are
hung with the red cord and tassels of
the war period and they are the identi
cal pictures used at that time. The
heavy cornices aver the windows, the
looped-back curtains, the table . covers,

just as they were in vogue at that time

This WU1 Remove
Hairs From Face
Many beauty experts have discarded
the electric needle and are now using a
plain delatone pasta to remove hairy
growths because this method is almost
instantaneous and is entirely devoid of
pain. The paste is made by mixing
some powdered delatone with water and
this is applied to the hairy surface for
about 2 or 3 minutes, then rubbed off
and the skin washed. This banishes
every trace of hair and leaves the skin
soft and spotless. Be sure to get the
delatona in an original package. Adv.

loosens the bowels, thus breaking a
cold at once.
