work she has ever done. Until some
ten years ago Ruby La Fayette played
everything from Ingenue to characters,
' and then retired to a Texas home, 1
where she was discovered by the Blue- '
bird management and literally dragged

that she had retired.
It was only by calling her attention : 1
to the fact that In thlB way she could :

i attraction, although the oriental at- ,
mosphere which pervades the produc- t
tlon Is appealing to those who like 1
plays of this character. There Is a

*7" "The Fighting in France" pictures v
which were shown at the Grand yesterday
and are repeating today, are of f
compelling interest. In striking con- P
irast wild some 01 tne many "war pictures"
now going the rounds there is a a
complete absence of the spectacular. r
There is nothing in them that has been! t
specially staged for the cameraman, \s
but they tell the unvarnished truth
about conditions existing at the front h
where our own boys are preparing to 1
give an account of themselves in be- 1
halt of world democracy. There are 5
views of the trenches, death dealing 1
machines of almost unthinkable pre- 11
* ponderousness, and the grim conse- v
quences of their action. It is a grip- '
ping series of pictures that possess
quite some educational value and due '

Tonight the last two performances f
' of "The Fortune Hunters" will be giv- h
en at the Hippodrome by Fox Reilly's ,
Globe TrotterB. There Isn't much to
be said about the offering as a skit
. because there isn't much to It. Ernest '
Fl Linwood is by all odds the big feature
of the bill. His rollicking humor Is
*' Infectious and once he gets going the
audience becomes properly enthused
and cheerfully overlooks aulte a bit of
"old stulf" that is put across by the
t other principals of the company. The
chorus work is better than in the midweek
program. The opening number
'Bell Hops" is delightfully tuneful and
starts a melody buzzing in one's ears
that is apt to break out in a hum at
any time. "Bouncing at the Rubber

other good number fairly well rendered.
All in all the performance offers
a satisfactory entertainment, Linwood,
himself, being worth all it costs to see
* the whole show.
t Well-Balanced Nelson Bill.
When O. Henry penned "A Gift ot
1 | the Magi" he made a huge Joke of the
blundering Impracticability of a young
married couple in the Christmas season?and
at the same time sanctified
It The conflicting moods in which O.
Henry wrote this tale are splendidly
bandied in the screen showing which
holds a favored place on the bill at the
Nelson Theatre today.
The reference to the Magi la Iron- ,
call? made?the three Wise Men who
brought gilts to the manager (or the
lttle child being vaunted (or their
cnowledge and Judgment. But while
-idlcullng the nalrette ot the young
narrled pair the great American
luthor glorifies their love to an extent
hat their gilts are in a way shown as
vise as those o( the Magi.
In addition to this O. Henry leature
here is a good Ham and Bud comedy
ind a Black Cat picture that touches
he heartstrings tenderly but vibranty.
It Is called "Seventy and Seven"

ship of an old army veteran and a lit-'
tie boy, who stick together and man- ]
ige to defeat the efforts of a schemer
to impoverish the old man. Ellis Pual,
Jullen Barton, Patrick Calhoun, Helen
Ferguson and Mark Ellison ar? the
featured players.
?Ellis Paul is the new child lead in
Black Cat stories. In "Seventy and
Seven" he divides honors with the
player taking an old man role, and
does it without tho forced juvenile
effort that detracts from effectiveness.
?The Needhams ? two brothers
from Lmluth, Minn., are piloting the
'Fighting in France" pictures over the
two Virginias, for which territory they
have the state rights. Both are experienced
moving picture men.
?Says the Kansas City Star: About
:he most refreshing departure from
screen piffle is the series of 2-reel O.
Henry stories. They don't show life as
it iBn't and never was and never will
pc. They aren't great spectacles; they
lon't exploit great stars. They're simply
corking good stories ? of which
here doesn't seem to be any more than
:he law allows.
?A better selection could not have
been wished for than the intensely aborting
drama "Sleeping Fires" In
which Pauline Frederick is starred
ind which lias been secured for showing
at the Grand next Thursday unler
the auspices of the Pythian Sisters.
