There is such a thing as a double
and triple revenge. The exquisitely
hideous human exploit is revealed in
Vitagraph's new superfilm, "The
Vengeance of Durand." This produc
tion, a seven part pic
turization of the fam
ous novel of the same
name by Rex Beach,
will be shown at the
Grand theatre on
Sunday and Monday.
Alice Joyce is the
star. "The Venge
ance of Durand" has
some of the most gorgeous settings
ever seen in a picture. Its happen
ings occur mid the social whirlin
great receptions, balls and dinners
'within a splendid chateau. The char
acters are drawn from among a class
of beings who dwell at the very top
of cultured, finished aristocracy.
Chivalry, romance and modern
knightliness find play throughout
i against a contrast of equally dynamic
evil. Big minds are seen at work
in the fashioning of their own and
the destiny of others as the story
winds its way.
The climax alone, always a crucial
point and a focal fact of a drama,
novel or film, is here a fact of tre
mendous importance. The climax of
this picture is like no climax ever con
trived. It is gigantic.

"The Woman in the Suitcase"
Tells How Young Girl
Saved Father
The latest Enid Bennett picture
bears the interesting title of "The
Woman in the Suitcase." It will be
shown at the Elko theatre tonight
and Saturday."" The story centers
around a vivacious young boarding
school miss, who has always made
more or, less of a pal out of her
father and is shocked to discover the
photograph of a comely woman, not
her mother, in his suitcase. The pic
ture bears an endearing inscription
and convinces Mary, the heroine, that
her father is carrying on an affair
with the siren. She determines to
rescue him.
The developments when Mary hires
a professional escort, makes the
acquaintance of "the other woman,"
and finally brings about a dramatic
situation that makes her father see
the error of his ways form the plot
of what is declared to be a most ab
sorbing picture.

following is an excerpt from the Grand Forks Herald, where they are now
playing a week stand:
"The Florence Hartley Musical Comedy company, which opened a five-
day engagement at the Metropolitan theatre last night, pleased a large
audience. 'A Modem Cinderella' was the bill offered last night, and it
proved a diverting evening's entertainment. It is shown in connection
with the picture 'Lost Money.' The playlet is a clever farce with song and
dance numbers interpolated. The work of the Irish and Jew comedians
was fine."

to be rich because he spends lots
of money on her. But a trip to the
