CLEIN-UP WEEK
STARTS TODAY
Great Interest Shown in Ef
fort to Clean Town--Will
Continue All Week
Clean-Up Week start* in Perth I
Amboy today and will continue for
the remainder of the week.
Many homes have already received
their spring cleaning but the city it
self is undergoing a complete and
thorough cleaning this week In order
[ that it may be more attractive and
pleasing to the eye.
The Boy Scouts of th" city are dis
. trlbuting 25.000 circulars urging the
residents to clean-up and warning
them to protect their homes against
flies and rats, these circulars being
i supplied by the Metropolitan Insur
t auce Company. Similar circulars
I are being distributed in the schoo.s
to the children ao that they may take
them home to their parents. In ad
' ditlon to this method of spreading
I the clean-up gospel thiriv-flve agents
of the Metropedilan Insurance Com
pans are canvassing the city, going
from house to house with these cir
culars. In this manner it i» hoped to
bring before every one the idea of a
cleaner home and healthier children
and adults.
The merchants of the city are
displaying special exhibits this week
of articles needed in cleaning up
about the home. Kverything from
1au>H.nw\utar( ru rHnn imnlpmpnlK
and Med down to paints, brushes,
brooms and insect powder can be
Mcured at the establishments of
local progressive merchants. Owing
to the continued cold weather and
the subsequent late spring this year
many housewives have neglected to
start their annual spring house
cleaning. Now is the opportunity to
do this work thoroughly. With the
stores offering every article neces
sary to thoroughly clean up the
home and premises and the city co
operating with extra collections of
garbage and refuse of all descrip
tion* Perth Amboy should look spick
and span next Sunday.
All rubbish, refuse and old articles
which are of no use and only detract
from the appearance of the home
should be placed out along the
strMta for collection this week. The
regular garbage collectors, augment
ed by special teams and wagons, w ill
take all kinds of discarded articles
this week. At other times such
thing* cannot be disposed of in this
manner.
The contests conducted here by
the Metropolitan Insurance Company
for the best essay on Clean-Up Week
and the best poster have closed and

Rita .1 olivet, who in private life is

nterview expressed her pleasure at

it the Ditmas Theatre today and
tier regret that her reappearance be
fore American audiences is only on
he stiver screen and not in person,
ihe said:
"It is only natural that I should
lie deeply moved by the reports of
the tremendous success of “Theo
dora,” as a screen spectacle in the
United States. I always have loved
he TTnited States, since I first went
here to create the leading role in
A thousand Years ago’ for the
Shuberts.
“I would like so much to see Mr.
ioldwyn’s presentation of this pic
ure. I am informed that he has
nade some changes and that Miss
vatherin? Hilliker lias entirely re
created the sub-titles, but that not

nent of the original film lost but
hat the great artistic effort of the
talian masters of the silent drama
las been brought to full fruition in
his American production.
"We worked very hard and very
aithfully in the production of
Theodora.’ No reward for our ef
orts could be more gratifying than
he spontaneous enthusiasm with
vhich i am told the generous Ameri
un public has taken it to their
leans. Such a reception from the
vonderful Republic across the water

THE GREAT
$3,000,000 Photoplay
Two years production time and 25,000 players were required in the making of “Theodora."
It cost $3,000,000, and so far surpasses all efforts of the screen as to make comparisons weak.
Critics everywhere it has been shown have declared even superlative are inadequate.
It is the World's greatest love story, Sarah Bernhardt ’s greatest triumph, a gripping wonder
, drama of an empress who sacrificed riches of the world, power of an autocrat, everything for
the man she loved.
The World’s Most Amazing Spectacle
From her golden throne the empress
heard herself denounced and she de
manded revenge.
When he was brought before her, A
doomed to the torture chamber, she
discovered that he was her secret ^
sweetheart. “Spy and murderess,’’ he 1
I cried to her, but to save him she loosed 1
