J t M. VEND1G, who 1b the mans
H ger of "The Winter Garden
* * Girls," a musical comedy company
booked for the Hippodrome week
of February 12, stopped over lu this
dly yesterday on his way from Cambridge,
Ohio, to Morgantown. With
blm was Bonnie DeWert, a dec'-.tht'ul
young lady, who Is also a hca>lll'<er in
Mr. Vendlg's company. Miss Lie Wert
Is a singing and dancing soubrcllc bte
of the London Follies and in a ^li-usant
half hour spent in the Hipp green
room listening to what Mr. Vendig h.uito
say about his show and having his
remarks ok'd by Miss Ho Wort we nat
urally came to the conclusion that the
Winter Garden Girls are all right. He
told us about the scenery, the prettygirls,
the good comedians, magnlflcent
wardrobes,1 about the success scored
wherever exhibited. Mr. Vendig is
one of those fellows who knows his
business, and one can readily dlscernc
the {act that the show business Is
his stock In trade in the first few minutes
of conversation. We like his enthusiasm,
and then besides he's big
and fat and that is a sure sign he's
lolly and u regular fellow. After his
company gels llirough at Morgantown
the whole outfit is coming to the Hipp
and then everybody can get a close-up
on what I heard about it yesterday.
Danny Lund's Triangle Girls, a Musical
Comedy company, will hold the
stage at the Hippodrome this week.
The company finished a successful
week at Bluefleld Saturday in a bill
called "The Fixer." Dick Norman, an
eccentric dancer of wide reputation.
Is with this company. The girl part
of the outfit is an attractive feature.
The musical numbers are catchy and
the organization has the ear-marks of
a bang-up muBlcal comedy.
Once again it has been demontrated
that Francis X. Bushman, the famous
Metro star, is the most popular
of the men players in the world of
motion pictures. The Popularity Con
test begun by the Motion Picture Magazine
In June, 1916. has Just come to
a close, and the most popular players
in the world have been selected
by a Jury ot more than 1,000,000
screen "fans." The contest lasted a
little over six months, and this Jury
has rendered the verdict that the most
popular motion picture actor in the
world is Francis X. Bushman.
Ronald Bradbury has. to date, played
the roles of twenty-two villlans in
the Kalom serios, "The Girl Front Frisco."
And marvel of marvels, ho has
presented on entirely different appearance
in each role.
Local amusement managers' hopes
and disappointments plnyed a lively
game ot tag Saturday and yesterday.
The announcement that children would
be permitted to attend Sunday school
contained a gleam of hope that the
ban severely affecting their business
would be lifted. But hope was overtaken
by disappointment this morning
when it became known that there was
"nothing doing" in their line.
Reports received at the offices of
the treasurer of the Metro Pictures
Corporation, show that more than 3.
uuu iiiuiion picture nouses tnrouguoui
the United States are showing the stupendous
Metro serial, "The Great Secret,"
in which Krar.cis X. Buchnian
v and Beverly Bayne are co-stars,
r- This is one-Bixth ot the total number
ot motion picture houses in the
country, and ia said to establish a record
for serial business.
T \ ?
"Luke Locates tho Loot" is the
funniest Luke picture to date, and is
showing at the Nelson today. Luke
not only succeeds in locating the loot,
but he comes mighty near puncturing
the risibles of every one who witnesses
his funny antics and the ludicrous situations
in which the skit abounds.
Jack Goodman, tho one-time hero of
the prize ring, now retired and working
in motion pictures, plays the role
of a gunman in Metro's new big serial,
"Tho Great Secret."
With Louis Glaum and Charlie Ray
In "The Wolf Woman" at the Dixie
and Ruth Stoneliouse and Jack Mulhall
at tho Princess in "Love Aflame"
there will bo an unintentional popularity
contest waged today. All are
favorites with local movie fans.

The "Drug Store Philosopher" has
a new plan for stopping the submarine
warfare. The heartless wretch wants
to electrocute the Bochs by stringing
a high tensidh cable under the "briny"
where the submarine will "bump into
It." Bob Hood is to finance the scheme,
One of the distinct surprise-, to the
newcomer at the war, says a letter direct
fro nithe front, is to find iarks
singing over the frontline trenches.
Ono would think that birds of every
son nan long since ncen tlrlvou rat
from the war-zone. but. Instead, they
lurk in and about it lu great numbers.
Very often the sudden flight of a covey
from a secluded thicket or remnant
of wood has given the first signal of a
shrapnel attack.
The drumming of big guns the "pat
pat-patter-patter-patter" of machine
guns, the whirr and "bang" of "plum
puddings" and "rum jars" sent over by
the enemy trench mcrtars, seem tc
have lost all terror to the feathered
songsters. They chirp as gaily and
loudly over the muddy "Hue" as 11
there was no such thing in all the
world as war.
Tile British Tommy is very fond ol
pets. When he can safely do so he
throws crumbs over the parapet fot
the larks and it lie had his way would
fill up every nook and corner of the
trench with name sort of animal mas
cot. As it is, there is a strange mix
turo of pets and pests in these deep
cuttings in the earth?the outposts ol
battle ? where the men themselves
live a sort of animal life, it is a life
no human being was ever intended tc
live, and yet the health of the troops
is positively amazing.
Of all the trench pests, the rat, ol
course, by reason of his size, takes
precedence, ile is everywhere. Nc
amount of cleaning up lias tended tc
wipe him out. In fact he waxes fattei
us the war goes on.
Of the pets the dog is by far the
more numerous and popular. There
are goats and cats and canaries and
various species of cascot, but the dog
becomes more a part of tch life than
any of file others.
Many a subaltern or company com
mander has gone "over the lop" into
battle with his log leaping and bark
ing happily beside him. Scores of dogs
have been killed beside their masters
and hundreds wounded. In the fight,
ing about Mametz, during the great
"push" on the Somme. a Red Cross
searching parly came upon a pathetic
little group composed of a subaltern,
hiB dog, and four private soldiers, just
as they had sprawled to their death
in a burst of machino gun fire.
The dogs in the trenches have great
fun chaBing the rats. They will even
leap over the parapet after them into
"No Man's Land." And sometimes old
"Fritz" from the enemy trenches will
snipe them. There Is one old terrier
now in the front line who has been
wounded four times. If he survives
the war, litis old veteran is going to
have a collar with four gold stripes
on It.
The Red Cross dogs of the French
hardly come under the head of pets,
i Tlicy aro a lasting tribute to the part
I dumb animals have played, and are
j playing In the great worlil conflict.
I The dogs, however, render a service
, scarcely more notable than tho little
French donkeys that carry ammunition
to the front line trenches. These
