THURSDAY EVENING,
MITZI, FAVORITE MUSICAL COMEDY STAR, IN "HEAD OVER HEELS"
i mxMi
In the new musical comedy, "Head Over Heels," In which Henry W. Savage is to send his leading star,
Mitzi, to the Orpheum Saturday, matinee and night, she is the quaintest of characters in the tights and spang
les of a little foreign acrobat. For love she comes to America with the troupe of so-called "brothers and sisters"
who knew r,t the same parents. And then when she finds the love was not real and her dreams fade away,
the gay little "top-mounter" builds a new pyramid of love up which she climbs. In the story that New York,
Chcago and Boston found so much to like are the mingled laughter and tears of the variety performer's life
and also a contrast with the world of smart society. The supporting cast has been greatly praised since the
piece began its career. The music by Jeroine Kern l has been widely sung and phonogrnphcd over the land.
'in "From Khaki to Cork;" the Two
I Karls and Saxton and Farrell. This
program has been designed with but
one purpose in mind and that is to
create laughter. Another episode of
I"The Great Gamble" is also being!

day, to-morrow and Saturday. In j
these last days of t.he week, the
Mack Sennett Comedy, "The Dentist"
will also be shown.
Aside from the wonderful picturl
zation of the popular novel by Gert
rude Atherton, the photoplay has met
great acclaim in the short time it has
been shown in other cities. It is re
puted to be the best work done by
the noted star of stage and screen.
This new Artcraft picture was pro
duced on an especially lavish scale, j
Some time in his life every one !
has had to patronize one of these ter- j
rible establish- |

get you into a |
chair and drill wells into your |
countenance. At the time, perhaps, ;
it never occurred to you that there ;
was anything funny in the process; |
but you will think differently when ;
you see "The Dentist." the new Mack j
Sennett Comedy which will be shown
at the Regent Theater to-day. to- '
morrow and Saturday. One of the j
most ludicrous situations ever shown !
on the screen takes place in the of
fice where Charley Murray is the den- j
tist and Marie Provost, the pretty j
stenographer, is a patient.

of as a most ambitious effort, no doubt
(he best the combination of authors

quartets, a ladies' and a male. An
other feature In the way of rendering
vocal harmony Is the Octet com

TEAM OFF FIELD
Refused to Play With Lop
sided Ball; Game Was Tie,
According to Ump
At a recent basaball game a fan
remarked, "you never seq 'Brackey'
real mad In a game." That fan
should have been at Parkesburg last
evening. Was Johnny Brackenridge
mad? He was boiling all over and
according to reports from several
local fans who witnessed the game
at Parkesburg he had a right to be.
The Klein Chocolate team manager
took his team from the field in the
seventh inning when the umpire in
sisted that a lopsided ball, with a
ripped cover should be kept in the
game. The contest ended right
there -with the score 3 to 3.
It was the third game in the series
between Klein and Parkesburg. In
the eighth inning Parkesburg had
one man in, two on bases and were
two runs behind Klein when a dis
pute arose over a batt which Catcher
Trout wanted tossed out of the game
by Umpire Rusey, but which the
latter refused to do. Trout then got
| the disputed ball in his possession
and threw it over the fence. When
the ball disappeared the two
Parkesburg base runners started a
canter to the plate and crossed the
rubber, ticing the score.
When Umpire Rusey allowed these
runs the Klein team left the field
and refused to come back, although
Manager Si Pauxtis, of Parkesburg,
agreed to send back the man who
was on first base at the time, but
insisted that the runner who was on
third be allowed to score. Manager
John Brackenridge of the Kleins,
would not consent to this and refus
-1 ed to allow his team to again take
I the field. After waiting the custo
mary time for the Kleins to reap
[ pear Umpire Rusey declared the
game forfeited to Parkesburg.
The discussion broke 'up what
had been a most hotly played series
this year, for following the unpleas
ant ending of the game, Owner Hor
ace A. Bcale, of the Parkesburg
club, announced that he had sev
eral further games with the Eliza
bethville club. Each club had won
a game from the other prior to
yesterday's game.
In the game Klein rapped Sterl
ing hard at times, hut brilliant sup
port carried the local pitcher over
many tight places. Decatur pitched
good ball and had the locals blank
ed until the eighth when the trouble
broke out.
