Grand Pride of the Clan i
THE Dixie comes forth today with :
an unusually attractive layout, i
The sixth episode of "The Secret j
Kingdom." a superb Vltagraph serial.
Is the big number, but the long remembered
Prank Daniels will appeal strongly
to thoae who like good comedy.
Daniels is of the old school and no
matter how he mleht strive to get1
down to the preVaUing character of'
comedies he cannot lose his own mark-,
ed characteristics, which of course insures
something better than you'd expect
from the newly born comedians.
Karl Williams is also on tbo bill in
"The Scarlet Runner."
I'm wrong, all wrong. Easy. We said
we were ahead one piece of "Hildreth's
Original Velvet." And we thought we
were, but last night we discovered that
the Missus had been through our pock-1
ets and, of course, she ate the candy.!
Time Is a great leveler. In this case,1
assisted by the wife.
Tiny "Taddy" Lynch, the sweet hahy
of the happy Lynch family of five. A
marvelous little tot who has the "fin
ish" of a professional In her chosen i
work. Diminutive little miss?for po-,
liteness sake we never mention the j
age of the ladies, but we sometimes
gness. Say that she's over seven- but!
meet her; shake her pretty little right
hand with Its full crop of five baby
fingers anil have her greet you: "Delighted
to know you." A charming
grace and self possession that thrice
older persons may be pardoned to
envy. She's the sweet little baby of
a fond, loving mother. Perfectly hu
man. but wise 'way beyond her years.
It was our pleasure to grasp her tiny |
gloved hand extended to us In the i
course of a formal Introduction cngi-;
neered by "Dad." Her performance at |
the Hippodrome this week In company ,
with her a-llttle-oiuer brother and yet-,
a-blt-older sister has been a topic of I
. conversation in the homo circle of I
those who have seen her remarkable'
dancing, conversational and singing:
specialties. A perfect self-assurance, I
either on or oft the stage, and the Idol!
of brother, sister, "ma" and "pa." and
many of the public.
Someone said to me during one of'
her stage appearances. "My what a;
wonderful dancer she'll be when she 1
grows up." and then a terrible thought
possessed us. Supposing sho should
get big and fat; too heavy for sucn.
light foot work. But we can't conjurt i
the picture. She'll always be the'
sweet little Miss and live in memory 1
as the most accomplished little dancer:
" that has ever graced the Hipp boards.,
; Big and fat? Puffy, hippopotamus j
' like. Cgh! Horrible nightmare. Perish
the thought.
Bat think of the throbs and admiration
rttit" wilTspring-'n-p in the hearts
_ of hundreds of little girls who will be
at the reception she has planned to
give at the Hippodrome Theatre ou
Saturday afternoon It's her own big
Idea. She may pass this way but once
and she wants nil the little girls to repnember
her when she is speeding
about the country entertaining big and
. little folks in other cities with her
', wonderful terpsichorean art. She will
. 5 have a little memento to give to each
little new-found friend.

A change in program at the Hipp
today will place each member of the
Zarrow organization In a different role.
This very clever company of vaudevflllans
have a repertoire that knows
no limit and the versatility of each
performer permits the putting on of:
many things not Introduced in the'
U earlier programs. Last night's per-!
