He laid his rifle down, stepped slowly out side and stretched his arms with a yawn. Then still leisurely he moved toward his horse as though to take care of it. But the braves were too keen and watchful and they were not fooled by the fact that he had left his rifle behind. Before he was close enough to leap for Firefly's back, three bucks darted from behind a lodge and threw themselves upon him.

"Grand Larceny" with Elliott Dex ter and Claire Windsor is the feature attraction at the Eltinge for Wednes day. It is a story of two men and a I woma^, by Albert Payson Terhune, in which one of the men commits what the other calls an act of Gran.* Larceny in stealing the affections of the other's wife. A novel twist to this type of society story is intro duced by the attitude of the woman, whoiis the innocent victim of what i apparently a chain of evil-looking circumstances. She does not acqui esce in the theory that degrades her to the level of things that may bi stolen and in the end, forces upon both men recognition of the fact that she belongs to herself. The story, which was written by Albert Payson Terhune, is beautifully presented by an excellent cast, in cluding Claire Windsor, one of the latest "finds," Ellioti Dexter, Richard Tucker, Tom Gallery, Roy Atwell, and John Cossar. Bobby Vernon in a Christie com edy, "Hokus Pokus". is also on the program.
