J-i-i RCE, there la nothing so terrible I
I at a woman's wrath?even when
? lt'a screen wrath.
Tiring Cummlngs, the well known
William Fox player, who la now appeering
In "Wrath of Love," In which
Virginia Pearson Is starred, has been
in many a film fight, but never has
been thra and battered as In the tussle
with Miss Pearson in that film.
Not that Miss Pearson was really
t;,\ angry; she could hardly keep rroin
laughing as she mussed up Mr. Cumznings
hair, made scars on his cheeks
and pulled his collar off.
Mr. Cummings insists he was never
so thoroughly mauled in his life. The
fact that the Btar who was doing it
wasn't angry did not detrac t from its
_? effectiveness.
Being naturally gallant, Cummings
didn't "return the compliment" with as
much zest as if his opponent had been
a man. Then, too, the star was his
wife, so far as the picture was con
jcerned, laboring under a lit of Jealousy.
But he did ward oil the attacks
as well as possible aud tear her gown
since the scenario called for it.
After it was all over, Mr. Cummings
i,' sat down to get his breath. He confided
to some other men in the cast that
when there is any scrapping to be
done hereafter he hopes it will be a
man. He would then feel at home and
more at liberty to return "tit for tat."
??Three
Good Ones at the Nelson.
(This is "Stingaree" day at the Nelson.
The title of the drama Is the
"Jackaroo" and features True Board
man in an excellent role which be
handles with bis usual vim and im
parts to the production a quality which
he alone is able to do.
A thrilling three reel drama bearing
the title "The Victor of the Plot," is
Interpreted by Bessie Eyton and a capable
cast. The Btory is of English
army life in India and has many t"nse
moments and a superb setting.
A Pokes and jabs comedy, "The
Rest Cure" is a Jaxon production that
Insures a period ot continuous laughs.
Burns and Stull are the featured com
S edians.
*8ehultz'a Cabaret" at Hipp Tonight.
All the principals in the production
of "Madam, Excuse Me," which was
repeated last night, scored even a
greater triumph than on the previous
night. A large matinee audience witnessed
the performance in the afternoon
which was again largely made up
of women and it Is evident from the
fact that the amusement loving public
Is fast realizing that the charI
acter and quality of Manager Burka's
bookings are devoid of the slightest
objectionable features Kuof's Pretty !

sparkling comedies well intersperseu
with catchy songs and pleasing novel

Joe Fields will be seen in one
of his most delightful impersonations
and Lew Trumpetter Is cast in a pleasing
role that will add to the popularity
gained by him In the opening program.
The chorus will introduce a
pretty wardrobe and tuneful numbers,
while Miss Maitland, who is styled
the prettiest girl in vaudeville, and
Vera Leahy, the dainty soubrette will
appear in new specialties.

"Miss Nobody," a five act drama featuring
Gladys Hulette is showing at
the Princess today. The story, which
? abounds in originality, grips the spectator's
lntercstest from the introduction
of the characters to the climax.
It shows thoughtful work on the part
of the author who has injected unusual
twists and complications that come
as complete surprises, heighten the
jsuspense and rivet the attentions all
the more securely. No attempt will
be made to detail these twists here as
full justice could not be done their
value to the plot, which revolves
around a young girl who, when a baby,
was left in the care of two partners
_ ^ in a pawnbroking establishment. She
I is receiving her education at a fashionable
school, and to stop the taunts of
her school mates, she demands from
her guardians Information as to ber
parentage. They invent the story that
she is the daughter of an carl. She
is Immediately taken up by society,
and gets into trouble innocently. Matters
are all cleared up when it is found
that she is the daughter of a nobleman
Miss Hulette displays her usual
charm and ability, which is praise indeed.
Good characterizations are contributed
by Cesare Gravina and A. G.
Andrews, and Sidney Mather is adequate
in an easy role. William Parke.
Jr., looks too young for bis part.
Gale Kane and Robert Warwick.
"The False Friend" at the Dixie today,
is a drama of love and perfidy
with a hero who is noble, but misunderstood.
The scenes, which by the
way, are exceedingly well directed
and photographed, begin with Columbia
university and end with a hunting
; . lodge in the mountains, with a gener
ons amount of burglaries, lovers' quarrels,
and murders in between. The
Y method of the false friend to discredit
the hero is at least ingenious for all
Us villainy. He forces a servant who
f is In power to drug his friend's coffee
and then "plants" a hypodermic needle
near hisiunconsclous body to give the
impression that he is a drug fiend.
Discredited by the evidence, the innocent
man sinks lower and lower until
he suddenly feels a desire to reform
and wins back his self respect by fell-!
ing timber. Meanwhile his sweetheart i
has married the false friend, but a
struggle in the dark and a bullet from
the treacherous servant disposes of
the superfluous husband and the hero
is left to his Just reward.
Robert Warwick plays the part of;
the misjudged hero with dignity and
f-. resignation. Gall Kane is charmingly
affective as the heroine in a series of
becoming costumes. The most effective
touch In the entire play is given
bf Pina Nesb.'t as the adventuress.

will leave In a few days for South
America In accordance with his annual
fall custom. He will travel through
the wildest parts of the country In
a wagon In which he will carry goods
to sell or trade to the natives. He
will go from Charleston to Orlando.
Fla., and from that city to Tampa,
from which place he will sail to Havana.
Cuba. He will cover Cuba In bis
wagon and when his route through the
island Is completed be will go to
Kingston, Jamaica. He will then sail
to Central America where he will
plunge Into the forests, traveling inland
and toward the south. "In this
part of the world," says Mr. Fellows,
"the natives make a living by trapping
and raising bananas. Upon my arrival
in Brazill find a beautiful level and
fertile country of perpetual summer,
where one may see thousands of cattle
and sheep grazing in the meadows
Brazil has a still greater area than
the United States, a fact not generally
known. 1 nthe larger towns one finds
beautiful building of the old Spanish
type with balconies hanging over the
narrow streets.
There are no sidewalks to the narrow,
muddy streets, which are lined
with curio stores, where darkeyed
Spanish girls salute you as you enter.
In the rural districts the children wear
only a girdle fastened about the waist.
Traveling along the roads of Central
America, one may see monkeys, parrots,
huge snakes, birds of beautiful
plumage and wonderful insects. Alligators
lie upon the bknks of the small
and swampy streams and sun themselves
on the hot Bands."
Fellows will carry with him, as upon
his former trips through this wild and
only partly settled country, a ham
