TAYLOR HOLMES IN FAMOUS
WILLIAM COLLIER FARCE
Taylor Holmes In “Nothing but the
Truth,” will be tlie featurfe at tho
Coliseum Theatre tonight and lomoi
row night. It's the funniest screen
play of the season.
Taylor Holmes, the comedian with
personality, produced it himself. He
surrounded himself with a cast of
talented Broadway players and the
exterior scenes were photographed or.
beautiful country estates in West
chester and on Long Island.
The play lias to do with the n:onu
mental embarrassments that follow a
wager made by “Bob” Bennett, a
young society man that he can and
will tell the absolute truth tor a
whole week. He joins a house party
and when he starts teiling the naked |
truth everybody flies into a huff, j
You see, when a married woman j
asks him about her poor overworked
husband. Bob truthfully relates bow
said hubby a few nights before was
dangling a chorus lady on his knee
at a cabaret.
Yes, telling the whole truth is a
hard life. Tho story is from the
novey by Frederick Isham that has
sold in twelve editions. It was
played on the stage with phenome
nal success by William Collier, and
in oiip form or another is known to
millions of people all over the world.

States Rights Feature comedy ia
6 reels.
It is the greatest film comedy
to dale and it is called “Yankee
Doodle in Berlin.”
Two-reel comedies have made Mack
Sennett supremo in the field, but
“Yankee Doodle in Berlin.” is C reels
of continuous hilarity in which he
has poured all of bis fertile resources
and marshalled all his best farceurs.
He lias made this a full evening’s
entertainment.
Mack Sennett yielded to the per
suasion of Sol. L. Lesser, who bought
tho American and Canadian rights
to “Yankee Doodle in Berlin,” and
the attraction thus brought about
is entirely unique in the production
of motion pictures. The Palace
management secured this attraction
from Sol L. Lesser, representative,
fur this engagement.

The truth of Kipling’s famous
line “The female of the species is

Thrills follow in rapid-fire order.
The result is said to bo a highly1
entertaining picture witli a start
ling climax that changes the wholei
aspect of things.

Store Ads Deal With Realities!
An advertisement is often of unsus
pected interest. /
You read a store ad and consider the
price (tooted on some article of mer
chandise in which you are immediately
interested. Perhaps you have a feeling
that the price named is an arbitrary one,
fixed at the whim or pleasure of the
merchant.
It, is not. That price is the result of
the operation of economic law. it is in
fiueuced by a hundred separate considera
tions. Manufacturing conditions, includ
ing changing costs of raw materials, fluc
tuating overhead charges, unstable prices
for labor, uncertain transportation condi
tions .difficulties in estimating demand,
complications in effecting distribution—
these, and many other tilings, will have
been molding and pimping the price of
that finished product before the retail
merchant appears in the transaction at all.
Your retailer, then, has left to him
only a little of wlmt might be called
arbitrary power in price-fixing. He esti
mates liis own costs, and the margin of
Ins own small profits. That is all.
And that is why advertising has a very
actual appeal to the reader. The store
ad do indeed deal with realities—with
the little tilings that go to make up tho
sum of your savings through wise buying.
