^Princess The Great Secret
Dixie House Built Upon Sands i
Grand The Plow Girl
THERE Is no lagging In the Interest
Princess patrons have manifest- <
ed from the start In the MetroQuality
serial "The Great Secret," a
chapter of which Is showing at this
pretty theatre today The title of this
episode Is "From Sunshine to Shad-'
ow." Supporting Francis X. Bushman :
and Beverly Bayne are actors of note.
pugilists who havo world-whlc repu-1
tatlons, former police officials, and
men who havo figured prominently in j
pollllcfl and In the realm of sports. All
of theee nre Interesting In their own
proper persona, aa well aa on account
of the fact that they are eminently fitted
to play the parts assigned I hem.
each having been chosen to embody
the particular type he la called upon :
to play.
The role of a society "bud" la given
to a real debutante, a girl whose very
presence betokens tho atmosphere in <
which she has been reared, and deathdefying
"stunts" are done by a famous
cowboy of the Western plains.
"The (treat Secret" presents a per .
feet treasure house of great acting. 1
With such names as lid ward J. Connelly,
Helen Dunbar. Fred It. Stanton.'
Belle Bruce- "Ttmmany" Voting and
others of like. note, this fact is assured.
The Nelson presents a splendidly
varied bill today leading off with
"When Hearts Are Idle," a two part
Mutual production. The strong comedy
feature Is supplied by that itiscperable
pair of fun makers. Ham and
Bud. and it's a laugh producer from :
start to finish, even going so far as to
provoke a smile by its title, "A Flyer
in Flapjacks." I.loyd Hamilton and
Bud Duncan seem to have an Inexhaustible
fund of funny antics and
there is an attack made on one's rlslbles
in every move they mnko. The
other big number on the bill is "A Cir-.
cus Cyclone."
The changed bill which went Into of- i
feet at the Hipp yesterday introduced
new songs anil a splendid variety of
novelties. We'd have to get Bill
Bailey's expert opinion before we'd
venture to say the change was an Im-i
provemnnt on the former, because in
our humble opinion the first was a real
good one. However, it was noticeable ;
In spots that the crowd at last night's,
show gave ovidencc of more enthusiasm.
The ladies took their hands
out of their muffs oftcner and the mas-1
i nline element evidently discovered I
that there arc racks Under the scats !
to store sky pieces. They made freer
use of their glad hands anyway.
Mr. Snead and Miss Gladys Clark I
have a better sketch and some really |
flno bits of repartee went out over the .
little lake of faces and up Into thei
sparrow loft, occasionally being check-j
ed in their flight by "here a quack and |
tbero a quack" emitted by those wjio j
could keep up to such high class sluif.
The singing by this pair was excellent.}
McConnell &. I.ockhart have the rip-,
roaringest novelty which is 100 per1
cent. good. Mr. Mcl'onnell'g cxhibi-1
tion of dancing and his entrance upon |
the stage, while not as sensational as
the former bill, however, is replete |
with surprises, ills caricature of the:
baseball pitcher and the batlcr nccom- ]
panied by really clever footwork un|
shackled the audience and brought out i
some richly deserved applause. The
Lynch trio, with tiny "Tad" as the j
center of attraction, wore llio big hit]
, of the show. Little "Tad's" dancing Is i
(Indeed remarkable. The entire Zar !
row company, en masse and as lndl-|
; viduals, merits packed liouses. wheth-!
^er they get them or not. The same |
' Dill will be repeated tonight.
They didn't give out any candy last
, night.
"The Stain of Chuckawalla," one of j
the "Girl from , Frisco" series at the;
Nelson yesterday, is all action. It
was the best in that sense of the whole ]
i series to date, and the packed house]
displayed a deserved amount of enthu\
siastn.
When Miss Vaughan finished her
last song number last night at the
Hipp there were a lot of lloudinis who
got out of their manacles.
Lillian Gish is starred in "The House |
. Built Upon Sands," showing at the
; Dixie today.
r Gents, put your hats under your |
seats. You'll be able to use both
ltands then.
Easy Wilson, the minstrel drummer
at the Hipp, said last night that the
wad of money he got the night before
"for out-bulling a pair of performers '
was returnod to its original owners by
..request. Easy says he didn't lose anything
by the transaction as It was
.."atage money" anyway. So we are j
_ ahead one piece of "Hlldreth's original :
-Velvet." after all.

nourish its roots.
The success of Pompeian HAIR
Massage is due largely to its method
of application. You massage it Into
the scalp, stimulating the roots of
