"TOOSIE TEA AND
SCONES"; ORPHEUM
Novelty at "The Night Before"

formance Next Tuesday
One of the most pleasing novelties
ever Introduced at a theatrical attrac
tion. will be the "Toosle tea and
scones." which will follow the matinee
performance at the Orpheum on Tues

sip," and. of course, all the gossips and
a lot of others who are not gossips will
l>e right 011 deck to sip a cheering cup
and munch a bit of Scotch scone and
shake the hands of the play actors, lust
for the novelty of the thing. It is a
function which serves to emphasize the
"all one family" atmosphere of this de
lightfully cozy and captivating plav
from the pen of the world's greatest
entertainer, Harry Lauder. Scotch
hospitality will be dispensed by real
Scotch actors, absolutely free 'to all
patrons.
GAI.AXY OK ST Alt S NEXT FRIDAY
"The Xew Henrietta"
William H. Crane, the beloved of
actors, who appears at the Orpheum
next Friday evening, with the famous
"five-star" aggregation in "The New
Henrietta," has lost a portion of his
confidence in human nature.
In preparing for the recent Actors'
J-und benefit in Chicago, Crane decided
to reach back into the years and re
vive a song and dance which he did
many years ago, when he was a mem
ber of the HoTman opera company.
Mr. Crane decided that he needed an
audience on whom to practice his steps i
and listen to the whimsical verses of
his topical song of a long ago day. So |
he pitched on Sammy, the office boy of
Chicago's Cort Theater, where "The
Aew Henrietta" was playing, to try out
his act. imposing secrecy as he tendered
the youth a bright new dollar. Inci- i
dentally. It may now become the proper 1
theatrical caper to try out acts on the
pi fie© boy instead of the "dog." as has
been the custom.
Either Sammy did not think his 1
emolument of sufficient size, or he is
ltot of a very taciturn nature, for at the
final rehearsal on the day preceding the
benefit, Mr. Crane was startled bv a
burst of applause and shouts of laugh
ter from the darkened auditorium, and
Sammy's perfidy was discovered in the
presence of Thomas lioss, Maclyn Ar
nuckle. Amelia Bingham and Edith I
Taliaferro and others of the companv,
who were thoroughly enjoying the vet- '
eian s efforts to dance and sing.

his greatest coupe his better impulses
come to the surface and he confesses
the truth. For Wednesday there will
be a triple bill, comprising "Napoleon,
the Great." another instalment of "The
Strange Case of Mary Page." and "De
fense or Tribute?" a film along the lines

GREAT PAULINE
HERE NEXT WEEK
Big Attraction at Majestic Ex
pected to Draw Large
Crowds
Pauline, the Great Pauline, is a
name that may make some local
vaudeville-goers reflect a moment he
fore they fully recall just who this
person is, but most of them will at
once associate the name with one of
the big laughing acts once seen at
the Orpheum Theater.
Pauline has scientific powers that
interest, powers that amuse, but
above all Pauline lias the ability of a
master showman which ennbles him
to exploit these powers as no other
similar showman in the theatrical
profession does.
When he appeared as the Or
plieum's headiiner about four sea
sons ago, he succeeded in establishing;
an attendance record that ranks with
one of the biggest weeks the Orpheum
ever had.
The vaudeville offering surrounding j
the act will be ehanged on Thursday!
the same as other weeks. His sup- j
porting Keith attractions for the first j
half of the week will embrace Harry |
and Eva Puck, vaudeville's ciever j
brother and sister team. H&lbright'
and Bates presenting' a comedy sketch
called "Dr. Hush's Speed Tablets,"
George .Hall, the popular monologist. 1
and one or two others. i
Chief of the big Keith names of the
bill for the last half of the week will
be Von Hampton and Shriver, sing
ing comedians, and Daniels and Wal
ters, man and woman offering a bright,
and eccentric comedy skit. Another
act of interest will be that of the Mari
no Sisters; dainty Italian misses, who j
do a song and dance turn.
Of course, Pauline will be the'
bright headliner of the week-end bill 1
also. Pauline's act can practically be I
said to be different at each perform- •
ance, so persons who see him during ;
the first half of the week need have I
no fear that he won't have something
new when they see him for the see-1
ond time. This artist, who estab-1
lished of the record-breaking,
weeks at the Orpheum, when vaude-,
ville held sway there, has just re-1
turned from a trip around the globe, j
having mystified all, even the Hindoo.
In presenting the Great Pauline at the j
Majestic Theater for an entire week,
Manager Hopkins declares that Wil- j
mer and Vincent have gone a step I
ahead in the matter of securing an in
teresting headliner.
HAPPY WHIRLWIND

as One of the Week's
Big Features
Scene From "The Last Act"
am r~* J
Showing at the Colonial next Fri
day and Saturday.
Billie Burke stars In the Ince-
Triangle play, "Peggy," the excellent
Triangle feature that plays a return
engagement at the Colonial Monday
and Tuesday next week.
An orphan and heiress, Peggy Cam
eron is a lively member of New
York's exclusive set. There comes to
her a letter from her uncle in Scot
land, offering her a homo with him.
Peggy accepts the invitation, and
comes breezing into the little town of
Wood kirk, in the Scottish highlands,
one bright Sunday morning.
Andrew Cameron, (William H,
Thompson) and the minister, the Rev.
Donald Bruce (William Desmond),
surprise Peggy working under her
mac-bine in overalls. Her uncle is
shocked and forbids her ever to ap
pear again in masculine garb.
Nevertheless Peggy dons her
cousin's masculine dress one night
and goes for a spin. It starts to rain
and the automobile gets stalled. Peggy
goes into a vilage inn for shelter, and
on coming out bumps into the min
ister.
The following events show Peggy In
her more serious moods and she plays
no small part in reconciling her cousin
who has secretly married against his
father's wishes. Then just as she has
decided to quit the Scotch village her
love for the young minister, and his
love for her decides her in favor of
life in the Scottish town with the man
she loves.
Mansfield on Wednesday and Thursday

role, lives again in "A Parisian Ro
-1 mance," the Fox feature at the Colo- j

Baron a'hevrial (H. Cooper Cliffe) Is
j a wealthy Parisian, a fop, a prcma
j turely aged roue. His whole interest
jin life centers in woman, or rather
women, for his list of conquests is
j large.

parable dancer of the Opera Comique,
| comes to the notice of Chevrial. It
is said to be a stirring story,
j "The Last Act" PH. and Sat.
On the verge of Invading another
j woman's home because of her love
for that woman's husband, Ethel
I Duprey finds that the wife she is about
' to wrong has befriended her in her

Here is a situation to try the emo
tional powers of any. actress. Bessie
' Barriscale has the role, in the Trian
gle-Kay Bee picture, "The Last Act."
which will be seen at the Colonial Fri
day and Saturday next week, and her
| performance does full justice to the
I unique situation the playwright has
I conceived.
Fate does its share. A kind-hearted
I action starts the. young actress on an
upward career, at the height of which
the husband of her benefactor falls in
, love with her.

PROMISE OF GOOD
THINGS AT REGENT
Home of "Paramount" Has a
Week of Attractions in the
"Movie" Line
The Regent Theater announces for
the week of March 20 a list of notable
film plays. The Ilegent, is will be re
called, is the exclusive home of "Para
mount" in Harrisburg. No other the
ater here shows these films, which do
not, however, constitute the whole of
the daily Regent's program. There
are lots of other good things, includ
ing the intensely interesting up-to-the
minute Patlie News, Paramount-Bur
ton Holmes Travel Series, and Bray
cartoons that appeal both to the old
and young.
This theater wishes its .patrons to
know that it takes into consideration
other things besides presentation of
the best film plays. Its corps of a
dozen courteous employes aims to
make visitors at the Ilegent feel at
home and to enable them to enjoy
every comfort that Is possible to pro
vide in a modern theater.
The feature that will stand out most j
conspicuously on the tirst two days j
of next week will be the Paramount I
production, "The Ragamuffin," in I
which Jesse L. La sky presents Blanche !
Sweet. Xn this drama Miss Sweet is j
seen as a girl of the slums who has
been brought up by an old crook who i
uses her in his illegal calling and i
stands as a father to her.
Even more interest, however, is l
likely to be aroused when Dustin Far
num, the idol of photoplay fans, is j
given an opportunity on Wednesday |
and Thursday to score in "The Call of '
the Cumberlands," taken from the!
book and play by Charles Nevillel
Buck.
On Friday, the attraction will be j
'T'he Oval Diamond," a detective story
of a $250,000 diamond, and featuring |
Harris Fordon and Barbara Gilroy.
How Sylvia Is kept a prisoner
on the estate of her uncle, how her
father is murdered in cold blood; how
her uncle is carried away to a de
serted house, all on account of the
oval diamond, is interestingly told in
"The Oval Diamond."
On Saturday—"The Wrong Poor"
featuring Carter De Haven and Flora
Parker De Haven will be shown. This
is the story of a wealthy iron king
who falls in love with a dancer at the
theater, who is a home-loving body,
and who every night after the per
formance hurries home to her aged
father, who is a crook and who shares
in the profits of a raid on the iron
king's safe.
