*)f course most women 'will ?ay
that this U superfluous advice: that
it i.- not nerej.?ary fo- them to point

that th? majority a-f husbands, are
horn ehartrr members of the Knock

Order of Hammer W.elder*.
This is a mistake on the wives'
pa rt. When a man cet? married
he I? strong in the belief that hi?
superior Judgment and acumen has
enabled Mm to select the head liner
of her eex for a wife. The mere
tact that he did pick that particu
lar woman out from tho bunch con
vinces him that ehe ta auperior to
all the balance of womankind.
Therefore every brld l beffine her
married life on a pedestal, and it
la her own fault if ehe climbs down
off of it. Her husband would never
dream of knocking her off of it
if aba would just alt fast where he
toad plaeed her.
It is one of the peculiarities of
human nature that we all. more or
less, take people at their own val
uation. And especially do men
take women at their own valuation
mc* men have really no standard?
by which tu measure feminine
worth. Any man will believe that
any woman is a auperior creature
ir ehe tells him ahe Is a superior
creature, and exacta the homage
aue a superior creature.
And ?rspecally do wires write their
own price tags for their husbands.
Practically every man In the world

Vet the chanoe are that the rann
rnuutf ne?er have found out about his
wife's ?hortcomlraTe if ?he hadn't
called hi? attention to them he?elf.
Men do not enter matrimony with the
Irrational expectation of It being a
?tate of perfect blisa that women do.
They are used to the profit and lo??,
the give and take of bustnes?, and
they are prepared to find the same
up? ?nd downs in conjugal life, favd
U? think that they have gotten a pret
ty goo?! bargain In any woman who
la a reasonably ?rood housekeeper,
and not inordinately extravagant.
Hence the average husband ie con
tent until wife herself wake? him up
out of hi? complacency, and shows
him what a poor, feeble, faulty crea
ture he tied up with.
It !? curious that women do not
appreciate how dangerous it i? for
them to Institute comparison? between
their own -veaknesses, and other
woman', strength. No woman can
lorrar-lain tliKt ?ho isn't a splendi?,
cook llko Mrs. A, or lhat she does't

dollar as Mrs. ? does, or that ?he
cannot manage her children as Mr?.

lottery than he has.

A ?till mere fatal mistake do
wivea make when they call their hue

beauty. The very first time that
many a man notice? that ht? own wife
la growing fat and old and that her
hair is not all her own and her com
plexion i? camouflage Is when ?he be
. gin? to grow Jeatoua of girls young
enough to be her daughter, and to
worry about loelnc hi? affection.
The poor, dear man had never ob

in her looks until she pointed it out

never really taken a critical look at
her until ?he focussed his gase upon

All of which emphasises the wis

Last Night at the Theaters

The apologists and the annotatore ?
of Broadway and the Broadway !
spirit are forever active. It is not1
surprising, therefore, that Home 1
dramatist should arise to reveal the!
various reflexes and reactions of!
the New York Tenderloin to the
war. Nor is it surprising that this
them" should result In the most sin
cere, solid and telling- bit of war
drama that has yet been written on
this side of the Atlantic.
It Is almost as easy to over-,
estimate "The Big Chan?*?" as it is !
to under estimate it. Thematicaliy
it la big"; a play which shows the
spawn of Broadway redeemed in tho |
crucible of the front-line trenches
Is something radically outside the
category of mere melodrama. It'
possesses more than surface realism |
I In Its skillful and compelling treat
. ment of various tenderloin types; ?
[and although It is streaked with a'
[didactic sentimentality which blurs
I rather than compromises the sincer
ity with which It has unquestion-|
ably been written, even thin dldar- <
tlcism le glv*?n a certain distinction!
by such llnss as these:
"(iod has sent the war to give '
us useless creatures a decent chance I
to die."
In this line in incorporated the
spirit and the message of the play. I
Grant Atoms and Willard ?tack. ?
who wrote the piece. have tried j
, manfully to rise to the bigness or
their theme. They have been spur
red on by It to try for effects which
Pinero would be glad to achieve.
In a garment of melodrama? they
have clothed a play of real sincerity
and significance. No heroics here,
no .ti g-waving- or cheap play to
the war spirit in the gallery; rather
a genuine study of the spiritual
values developed In the "big show."
It might b? called a biological de
fense of war. Beyond doubt, if war
could exalt such ? barren little
creature as "Charley" Htckson, or
regenerate such a rat as "Edjdte"
Crandall. it has its place In the di
vine scheme of things?the society
of nations notwithstanding.
The cynic will say that the dramat
ists have not had the courage to at
tack their study in the aheerly real is - ?
tic spirit?for have they not made
much of the regeneration dependent
upon Girl rather than upon Mars? In
deed, if the truth be told. "The Big
Chance" is always hovering suspi
ciously close to the commonplace. Al
ways, when It threatens to flatten out
into a pancake of more sentimental
melodrama, it is illumined and re
deemed by some brilliant twtat of at-.
tion or dialogue??gasai e thl n g which he-1
atores our faith ' in its essential sin-|
cerity. It Is the only war play that:
has visited Washington in three sea
sons that Is something more than.

I the National last night. Jerome K.
.Jerome built the foundation for a fa
vorite and the producers, played it to

The story takes the form of an
American chorus girl whose simple
duty It Is to be "leadin? lady" at a
London theatre and whose charm and
excellent voice win the love of an
English lord. After the wedding cerc

j Her happiness Is short-lived, how
ever, for she discovers that the but

This altogether phlematic and over

The genius of Maurice Tourneur for
the visualization of unique dramatic
situations and the attainment of pho
tographic effects of highest artistic
value never ha? been more positively
demonstrated than in his plcturtzatton
of the famous Drury I An e melodrama,
"The White Heather," which was
shown for the first time on any screen
at Moore ? Rialto Theater yesterday
before audiences that taxed the ca
pacity of the huge auditorium. Not
even in "The Blue Bird" or in "Wom
an.'? did Mr. Tourneur achieve the
beauty of scene that characterizes
many of the episodes comprising his
latest contribution to the screen's
mounting lUt of classic film specta
"The White Heather" lends itself
with peculirfr facility to the require
ments of the camera. The develop
ment of the famous story entails a
constantly shifting locale, thus afford
ing opportunity for the introduction
of many ?uperb views of picturesque'
countryside, and leads to an astound-!
ing undersea elimax in which the!
hero and villain of the absorbing I
story fight a duel with divers* knives I
on the floor of the ocean where each ;
is seeking evidence, sunk with the1
yacht "White Heather" years before.]
to clear the name of the heroine. !
These extraordinary views, in addi-j
tion to supplying a climacteric scene
unprecedented in its power to thrill, ?
reveal the shimmering beauties of!
tho ore an's depths to a degree that ?

"The White Heather." in fact, is a
subject of exceptional freshness and i

The all-star cast pictured in the

that distinguishes by .superior ability
the many vivid moments which the
scenario provides, especially effective

somewhat different from the pic

name. In "Alias Mike Moran," the
title of the current offering, the
Columbia offers a drama of the '
great draft lottery in which an
aspiring department store clerk's
latent manhood is revived in time
to save him his disgrae/?.
Wallace Re?d plays the part of
the department store clerk with a
small salary and large tastes. When
the army draft cornea, he trades
places with an ex-convict who de
airea service but is barred by his
prison record. The convict, under
the clerk's name, goes t?? France
and dies for his country. The clerk.
shamed to his very soul, enlista with
the Canadians later and wins glory
in action. In France, he meets the
girl he loves, who. Instead of prov
ing to be ? millionaire's daughter
as h*? Rupp.-sed. proves to be just a
regular girl who had been posing as
a young woman of wealth. This
clears tbe situation and reaults in aj

dead learned that he had found solace
in the love of another and an alien
