Manager FiRhci proved himself equal to the occasion yesterday when he found that his louse was without an attraction owiry to the non-arrival of the much-heralded "Yankee Doodle GlrlB."

Tho arrangement ot scenes Is also liable to become baffling. The story Is of a woman's sacrifice for her daughter and, in turn, the daughter's greater sacrifice, to save her mother's name after the latter"s death. The girl's experiences begin in a boarding school and end with her acknowledging her lore for the man who has done his best to help her out of numerous hectic situations. Jean Sothern does some very good acting In "The Cloud" and she gives a fine portrait of a winsome and charming young girl. During the first two reels she displays her ability to cry In at least a dozen different manners. Richard Tucker plays a conventional role so that it is ll'ted out of the rut, and Arthur Housman Is a convincing, wayward youth wiln an avaricious disposition. These players and the remainder of the cast do a great deal In holding the attention of the spectator to the screen on account of the manner in which they handle their material. - - ?
