David Belasco and Laurptte Taytor have arrived in London. Mr. Belasco will stay in London for two weeks before going to Borne to confer with Puccini who is writing the music for "The Son-daughter." William Brady has been unable to iret a theater in London for Grace (jeorge and has returned to America. One should be able to rrack a good rheezo on this clipping from a Chi cago paper: ' "Karle Smith, a -vaudeville per former, was held up and robbed of a diamond rinis valued at $1,100 a dia mond pin valued at $800 and SO cents in cash." Tien Turpin. the prize he-comedian of the Mack Sennet Comedies, is go ing to the Fiji Islands in the eummef to make a special picture for Sennett, entitled "Tattooing Is Only Skin Ieep." Turpin will take all the Ben nett Bathing Girls with him as they . want to get a few pointers on new bathing suit. Pen said that he un derstood that In the Fiji Inlands they used shark teeth for money, and de cided that we should ue hen's teeth over here In these United States, as that would be about the only thing whirh would be as scarce as the pres ent brand of currency. The Shuberts will rewrite all of their former stago successes for the past ten years into one act vaudeville sketches and sell llicmto well known etors and actresses.

The bill at the Novelty the first half of the week will start off with the sixth episode of the best serial of the at-ason "Kuth Koland" in the "Adven tures of Kuth." Following the pic ture the management has arranged an especially good program of high class vaudeville consisting of five big features. namely, "Tllli AERIAL KPUYf," a man and a woman, both of whom could take up aviation as a side line and make good, as all their work is done in the air and of tho rharacter that makes perfect aviators. They exhibit many features, all of which are of the thrilling nature and call for nerve and perfect confidence on part of the artist attempting them. "SHEEN & LAFEL" come next. They bill themselves as "LYRIC! AND MEL ODY SPECIALISTS." "JACK BAX I.EY AND LILLIAN PORTER" are third on the bill in "THE CALL OF A SONG," and have an offering which is far out of the ordinary in, vaudeville due to the fact that it is distinctly IndividifM. "TOM MAHONEY" will hold down the fourth spot. Tom is wldrlv Jinown as "THE IRISH CHAIRMAN," he is a "broth" of a hoy, standing over six feet In height end built like an ox. Is it any wonder that he dominates the meeting of the - hod curriers' union when' as chairman he takes the gavel and calls the meet ing to order. The program will close with "THE CENTURY SERENAD KllS," and it would be a hard task for one to find in or out of vaude ville a quintet of entertainers as capa ble, talented and amusing as the five voting chaps who comprise the per sonnel of the "CENTURY FERE- NADERS'." This looks like a splendid hill on paper, at any rate it is one et the most expensive of the season. Kntchn-Koo." Katcha-Koo contains the kind of melodies that once heard are never forgotten. It is simply impossible to keep from whistling the catchy strains. It is difficult to say which of the melodies will prove the most popular. Some will like "When I Went to School With You." sung by Manu Morris and Marguerite Oohlke as Dick and Dolly, along with the Auld Ijinv Syne group. Then - there is "Susquehanna Sue," sung by Margaret Morrison and the polo dancers. This always calls for repeated encores. "Laddie Boy." by Tom Powell and the sailors is sure to please to say noth ing of "It's the CJothes That Make the Man." sung by Katcha-Koo (Mr. Ira K. Henry), and Girls Will Me Girls" a screamingly funny topical song also sung by Katcha-Koo and the four wives of the Maharajah, Marion Sul livan. Mny Ayers, Mabel Hults and Mrs. W. J. Russell, Jr. "I'm W'aiting Yet," as interpreted by the Maharajah (Mr. Manu Morris) and the entire chorus will tickle the rlslbilitiea of the audience and another topical song, "If Things Were Only Different" aiwaye arouses tremendous en thusiasm.

At the Isis. A photoplay that keeps the identity of its central figure a secret until the tinal fade-out and which holds the interest of the audience breathless as a consequence has been produced by Maurice Tourneur in "My Lady's Gar ter," will be shown at the Isis theater Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of next week. The picture is a screen version of Jacques Fu trelle's well known mystery-romance of the same name. The cast of "My Lady's Garter" includes such screen' notables as Wyndham Standing. Sylvia Breamer and Holmes E. Herbert. Fathe News will also be shown. At the Orphpum. Mabel Normand proves to be an equestrian of no little skill in her new Goldwyn picture, "Pinto," which will be shown at the Orpheum theater three days, beginning Monday. Her long screen career has heretofore been punctuated with proofs of her ability to swim, run. jump, dive, handle fast motor cars, and otherwise perform in the field of sport, but it was not until her director, Victor Schertizinger, wrote and filmed "Pinto" that she was given a chance to show her prowess in the "saddle. The beautifuf spotted horse which Miss Normand rides in this picture was- found only after a long and diligent search by Goldwyn's cowboy scout. The Edendale owner at first refused to loan the animal for picture work, but after being assured that the stunts in "Pinto" were Ma bel's risks entirely, he gazed fondly MUSIC FESTIVAL WEEK MAY SECOND TO NINTH Fort Hays Kansas Normal Announces t Sunday, .

When the horse arrived at the Verdi ranch on the Mojave desert where the company was on location. Miss Normand took to him immediately. The horse re sponded, .and they were soon good friends. She named him "Legs" for no apparent reason except perhaps be cause he really did have legs, and ap pointed herself champion of the spotted beauty. After Mabel and "Legs" had gotten thoroly acquainted, the stunt scenes were made. The principal of these and that most dif ficult to get was the one in which Pinto raids tHe cowboys' crap game at a gallop, swooping down and gathering up the money as "Legs" passes thru he- scrambling circle.

Unlike the average run of musical comedies which we have been seeing- for some time, "Hello 1919" comee here with a repu tation earned in the largest cities in America.

This show is a. Chicago production and has been in Kansas City for the past two weeks. Some Picture. The movement from the country to the city, which has bothered econo mists, statesmen, the United States senate and has benefited landlords, is about to be corrected and righted by Mack Sennett, for, after his five-part super-producion, "Down on the Farm" is released by United Artists it is con' fidently expected that humanity will s-vjarm to the country just as it swarm ed to the beaches following the Sen nett bathing beauties to their wave washed haunts. Thus the exodus ot urban dwellers will re-establish the balance of population, if, indeed it doesn't render the country more popu lous and poular than the city as a place of residence. No longer will the song ask piteously, "How're Goin to Keep 'em Down on the Farm?" The question will be, how are you going to keep 'em away. According to Mack Sennet's vision as projected from the five reels of his hilarious comedy, farm-life is fraught with all kinds of action. Romance waits by the wayside: villainy stalks abroad in the meadows, danger lurks j in the streams and the course of true 6th KpUod "Tha Adventures of Ruth" As Ac That Is Different f-rics and Melody, Specialists, Sonrs and Instrumental & umbers "Call of a Eons" "The Irish Story Toiler" "Th Mosicul Maniacs" Entertainers of Brass.
