PLAZA
Tiogan s Aristocratic Dream, one
of those famous two reel Keystone
special productions that make you
laugh in spite of yourself will be the
main attraction on the "movie" pro
gram at : the Plaza, the first half of
the week and two other Keystones:
"Gentlemen of Nerve, one of Charlie
Chaplin's greatest laughing successes
that made such a hit, when recently
shown and "Fatty- and Mabel's Mar
ried Life.?
The vaudeville program has 'been
caref ully seleoted and : contains many
attnactive features. '. '. Madam Sumi
ko and her Dancing: Girls in , a beau
tiful Japanese singing , and dancing
fantasy that will make' you sit up
and take notice has 'been booked for
an important spot Madam Sumiko
is a charming little lady and she' has
gathered around her a group of tal
ented Geisha girls who present their
numbers in a manner that cannot fall
to bound them into popular favor.
The act is a decided novelty and the
scenic equipment, all of Oriental de
sign, and handworked, is really gorge
ous..- ,. . . ..
Lawrence and Hd wards will have
an ' option on a large portion of the
laughs in their -original skit , entitled
The Pension . Office.' . .They will
offer s fifteen minutes of 'breezy Irish
wit that .will serve to .keep the au
dience in the (best of spirits.
Walter Walters, an exceptionally
clever 'i ventriloquist . who has a new
way of presenting a very difficult type
of act is scheduled to be enthusias
tically received for Walter has met

cities. '".: . -' ""

clever singing, talking and danc:
diversion in .which the dancing of
a little fellow in ' the trio is . an un
usually pleasing feature completes
the bill.
"The Volunteer Fireman." will ibe
shown in conjunction with the , Key
stones. ' .
LYRIC
"The Only Son" Cohan and Harris
big New York success, will be given
for the first time In. stock at the
Lyric theatre this week," beginning
with the performance .this evening.
That the play , will be one of the big
gest attractions the Lyric manage
ment has been able to offer the theatre-going
public of Bridgeport this
season goes without saying. The rec
ord which "The Only Son" made in
New York is all the endorsement
needed to make it one of the biggest
stock successes ever presented by the
Calburn players.
; The play is one . which will appeal
to every mother, every mother's son,
and every other member of the fam
ily. It is a play of filial affection
and youthful love, with 1 enough of
the "wild oats" element in it to make
the plot genuinely interesting.
Lowell Sherman will play the
leading role, and Miss Suzanne Jack
ton, Miss Violet Barney, Edward
Darney, and the rest of the Calburn
players will be seen at their best in
the production. .Manager Frank ,' L.
Callahan has staged the play with as
much care as though it were the ori
ginal Broadway ' presentation of the
piece, and as the play has been thor
oughly rehearsed there is no reason
in the ' world why It will not "go big"
for the entire week.
Better Than Calomel
Thousands Have Discovered Dr. Ed
ward's Olive Ta,blets- are a Harm
less Substitute.
Corsage Boquets for K of C Ball
JOHN RECK & SON
Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets the
substitute for calomel are a mild but
sure laxative, and their effect on the
liver is almost . instantaneous. They
are the result of Dr. Edwards' deter
mination not to treat liver and bowel
complaints'v.wfth calomel. His efforts
to banish it brought out these little
olive-colored tablets. - These pleasant
little tablets do the good that calomel
does but have no bad after effects.
They don't injure the teeth like strong
liquids or calomel. . They take hold of
trouble and quickly correct it. Why
cure the liver at the expense of the
tssth?" Calomel sometimes plays
havoc with the gums. So do strong
liquids. It - is best .not to take calo
mel, but to. let Dr. Edwards' Olive
Tablets take its place.
Most . headaches, "dullness"- and
that lazy feeling come from constipa
tion and a disordered liver. Take Dr.
Edwards' Olive Tablets when you
"loggy," and "heavy." Note how they
"clear" clouded brain and how thy
"perk up"- the spirits. At 10c and 25c
per box. At all druggists. The Olive
Tablet Co., Columbus, Ohio. Adv.
