Added EH B B" H m cyclone Smith's' Partner" ease 'and it n,is a bis bearRin on "The Prodigral Liar" which stars William Desmond in a highly entertaining comedy drama of the west, ivlucii starts on a two-day engagement today at the Hip. The story is that of a young coi'.es? man from the east who has settled on his ranch in the west, rides around in a his automobile and has eveiy convenience at his ranch house. Just the opposite from the west as it has been pictured in the mind of a charm ing niece of one of his neighbors whose desire for romance will not be satis fied until she has come out to the dreadful west and sees the bandits, cattle rustlers, outlaws and road agents. She does come west and her doting uncle decides to use the picture of the only remaining bandit in that part of the country to further his scheme?. In a spirit of fun he pasts a kodak picture of Monte Edwards (William Desmond! over the poster ftffering a reward for the arrest and conviction of "Stevo Logan," road agent, murderer, and all around bad man. The mur derer hs been caught and sentenced to life imprisonment so everything will work out wonderfully well, he thinks. The girl arrives and falls in love with the picture she sees and presto, Monte becomes a bandit. . He enters into the spirit of the scheme rather than spoil her vacation and tells her the most wonaertui stories of his escapades. But he must find a way to get out of this trouble for the firl stated that the one out standing feature that she liked about his manner, was his truthfulness, even to disclosing his past life. At last he had it. He told her he was troubled with aphasia, caused from a blow on the head and was not responsible for the times when he w-as a bad man, nor could ho tell her when another spell would come on. The girl's uncle ad vises her that the only remedy is an other blow on the head, and the girl decides she will strike the Wow. When the real bandit escapes Jail and the deputies are seen approacning the dugout Monte has borrowed for the occasion, he decides to keep the story going and tells her they are after him but that they will never take mm alive, i'ow is the time to strike, she thinks, and seizing a rock "cracks him one the dome, knocking him cookoo.' Then the whole story comes out and the girl finds that she has been madj a dupe of, but the memory of the blow on the head more than repays her for the "humiliation" she has suffered and she is ready for the real romance which starts. The Ford weekly augments the bill.

In this capacity, she leatns ' of the rotteness of the set of men in charge of this department. The chief's insulting manner finally forces her to j give up her position, which she does j to accept one in the office of the dis- j trict attorney, a man, familiar in a I fashion with the affairs of the police ! denartment. hnt not in position to force the hands of the grafters, for j :-. the reason that he lacks definite evi- 1 1 dence. j ku When she reveals to him what she has learned, his one determination is j its svstem of government. The chief I 15 of police, steeled in his long associa tion with shady transactions, likewise determines to stop at nothing to gain his purpose, that of discrediting the statements of the district attorney's office. To this end, he turns loose all the underhanded methods he can as semble. Stool pigeons are employed, the dis trict attorney is framed, and even the reputation of the girl, whom he knows to be innocent, is placed in jeopardy, and her sweetheart's faith is shaken. But when the gauntlet is thrown down, she accepts the challenge, and the bat tle is on the lone girl on one side and pitted against her all the unprincipled, underhanded-rottenpess that is possible for a bunch of corrupt politicians to launch. It is a big drama, handled in a big way, and gives Gladys Brockwell one of the most emotional roles of her the Columbia Dorothy Phillips, star or "Hearts of Humanity," and Mitchell Lewis, who will be remembered for his excellent work in "Squaw Man" will be at the Columbia theater for the week start ing today.
