| FRONT ROW | [l HEADLINER8 TONIGHT. Mualcal Comedy. K Hippodrome America Flrit Photoplay*. Grand Rage Princess.. Threads ot Fate Kelson Meddling With Marriage Dixie The Last Man H a NOTHER one of Zarrow's comV /i panles Is coming this way. The * * two that Mr. H. D. has already * sent to as thus far this season gave entire satisfaction. Manager Burks, who V went to Clarksburg during the week I, to give them the O. 0. says the "Little Bluebird" Company 1b even better than the others. Mr. Zan-ow Is one of I the big figures in musical comedy and vaudeville productions and keepB five companies on the road the year around. I This fact gives him the best talent and accounts for so many high grade performers being In his companies. Many of them could command much higher salaries, but It would mean short en gagements and uncertain ones. The assurance of steady employment appeals to performers about the same aB to all humans. So next week Hippodrome patrons will bo treated to tne third string from Mr. Zarrow's stables. The Clarksburg Telegram has this to say about one of the bills presented in that city this week by this comi pany: Ip " 'The Rich MIbs Single' Is pleasing large audiences al the Palace and is [ a better show than the one first preL sented here by the 'Litllo Bluebird' I . company. Jack Fuquay in an Irish f character keepB them laughing all the time he is on the stage. The specialties are also good, especially the buck dancing by three girls and two men. The musical .numbers are very good and the costumes of tho chorus very pretty. The Bluebird trio puts on some new comedy numbers that make a big hit" Tonight will see tbo passing of "Tho | Passing Parade" from the Hipp boards. I It will be the end of a very successful | engagement by an excellent company. I Those who have not been to the Hipp j ) this week are missing an opportunity I to see and hear a lot of catchy numbers | fv at half price. The character of this | ^ entertainment Is only equalled by the | ' companies playing at higher prices. ; Several comic opera features and the execution of the Chanticleer song from "Tho Century Girl" nre so impressively good that one Is losing j something by not seeing it. There is a martial atmosphere surrounding everything said and done ami J one can get a little boost for his patriotic sentiments by listening to the tnuslc and drinking In the scenery and j lirettv cirla nrnfnselv ripcnratprl in the i National colors. Tho Hawaiian ilancc, in which Miss Lytle Is the star, is being repeated. It was the big hit in the llrst halt prol grant and is carried over as an addil lionnl feature. There will be two performances tonight. Mary Pickford, "America's sweet\ heart" Is at tho Grand today in an ap. pealing play called "Hags." It iS a A Paramount production and the star is supported by a capable company. As one would almost draw from the title | j the story has a touch of pathos, but it has a stronger dramatic tone as its chief claim to attention. Kditli BarInard who wrote the play had "little Mary" in mind when she created the heroine and the play fits admirably. Viola Allen in "Threads of Pate" re-1 peats at the Princess today. The Dixie has a war spirit screen play on today that carries a love story of the heart throbbing kind. It is 1 called "The Last Man" and Mary AuI derson and William Duncan are the Blare. ? Lillian Walker in "Dimples the Diplomat" was a big hit at the Nelson last night. The compellllng charm and distracting dimples of Miss Walker blend pleasingly with the story in which this bright little diplomat straightens out the kinks and tangles ; in an unhappy family, saves it from financial ruin, cures a riotous youth from the drink habit and marries him ?all In two mirthful reels. "Meddling With Marriage" is one of the most gripping stories in the "Is Marriage Sacred" series. It Is being | shown at the Nelson today In a proi gram which includes "Poor Dad," comedy; Jack Plckford in a comedy drama i of college life and a thrilling Gibson J Hazard, "The Registered Pouch."
