The announced engagement of Laur-1 cite Taylor in One Mghl « n Jwme, »I the Playhouse Tuesday and Wed nesday, March 2-3. has already caused not a little comment this far In ad vance. In all probability the Playhouse will be filled to capacity at every one of the three performances that will be given. Miss Tavlor is easily one of the most popular and gifted of American actresses and Is well known In Wll mlngton for her appearances in "Out There" and "Happiness." "One Night in Borne" has been writ ten by J. Hartley Manners, the gifted playwright and husband of Miss Tny lor. The attraction has enjoyed a run at the Criterion Theatre In New York. _ "NOTHING BET THE Till Til." joylor Holmes, the well known stage J . , ... ■ -iml screen comedian and farceur, will make his first appearance at the Queen Theatre for some time In the farce, 'Nothing But the Truth," which will | )f shown today and tomorrow. The plot of liic story Is a line, clean on e, of hilariously amusing eomplioa tiens, and Ihc manner in which it plays havoc with a young man's disposition and grit. The situations and develop menls In "Nothing But the Truth" are too speedy and amusing to be given in advance. "The Exploits of Submarine It-35" will continue on the program at the Qucn. _ (.mi NAMES MARY." Th - showings today and tomorrow will finish Marguerite Clark's appearance In "A Girl Named Mary," which, with Carry Semen's comedy, 'The Grocery Clerk," has been the Ma Jcstlo Theatre's attraction for the. on tire week. Cheerfulness and general good feel ling is particularly emphasized In both 'storv and work of the little star who „ _ ,, =th Oeorge Walsh, the popular arjd ath letlc William Fox star, will be at the is constantly In the fore In the man ncr of her portrayal and the finish she give# to the production! The first feature fo next week's pro gram at the Majestic will be Elsie Fer (ison . g appParance a8 the star of "Counterfeit/* her latest photoplay, Hlalto today and tomorrow In his new est picture, "The Shark," which pre sents him In an exceptionally strong role. "The Shark," for the greater part, Is laid In a Southern country In and about that district of a Southern city fre quented by sailors and seafaring men. "«>«• also on a tramp steamer with a crew of all kinds of characters. Mr. Walsh will be seen ns the master of the crew and the boat. — AT THE GARRICK. Ernest Pupille, a clever monologulst. w j, 0 appearing at the Garrick Then tie this week, is a globe trotter, which probably partially accounts for his, wonderful versatility and originality. He Is a real wit and one of those con-1 genial fellows one Is sure to take to. He I» also a singer, which makes his act that much more Interesting. In Alaska he met Robert Service, the poet, probably with mutual benefit; In South Africa he was made a prisoner by the Boers, and has had various other In terestlng, thrilling and humorous ex perlences. which have served him well In his clmsen calling and have given tiim a variety of material for his work. — "BELOVED GREATER." One Is struck with the largeness and satisfying artistic qualities of "The Beloved Cheater," which Is showing to «lay and tomorrow at "The Savoy Theatre," and surely fulfills all the claims made by the producers as being one of the most unusual of photoplays. (Lew Cody who lias a niche In the hall matinee Idols, and h place in the heart of the American women, has the leading part , that of the "Beloved Cheater." The action shows him trying to tell a friend how to handle women, only to show that even he. the great, authority after all does not know every thing. "The Beloved Cheater" Is richly set and a carefully directed tlllm. to this Is added a striking and original .story, and the best work of his career I on the part of Mr. Cody He is support , p(1 b Dorl(J p Blto eB Percy and j ack Mower. ) The added attraction Is the screaming 'farce comedy "Pipe Dreams and Prizes" i a special Big V Comedy featuring Harry I Mann, "1*01,1.
