r A. MARCH, known the
ent over in theatrical cirs
"Doc" March, hails from
Jo. HIb Musical Merry
at the Grand this week
- upholding "Doc's" reputation as a
showman of the first division. Doctor
V.March likes politics as well as the
show game, and has been a conspicuoos
figure at all Republican National
conventions since he has been of voting
We first met "Doc" at the conven?
tion in Philadelphia which nominated
; .-Theodore Roosevelt for Vice President.
While in the lobby of the old Walton
??> ? Hotel Mr. March invited us over to the
z-r. cigar courier xo usvc ?
? \ Just fresh from an inland country
p,. town, we had not yet acquired the vice
'.r . ol smoking "luxurious" cigars. "Doc"
s? threw down a dollar bill, saying to the
gg clerk: "Giro us a couple of smokes."
I leaned over the cigar case in unv
sophisticated fashion and called for "a
. good five-cent perfecto."
The clerk' snickered and replied:
"You can't get^. five cent cigar here."
Before I could recovor irom my erabarrassment
Mr. March's wit had asv
serted itsei* and be jovially remarked:
"Oh, yes yon can get thera here, but
.# not for five cents."

[ despite the fact that they were unfortunate
to offer s biH that had been
worked nigh onto death at this theatre.
1 Individually and collectively the members
of the company are qualified to
give a faultless interpretation of the
new comedy called "Hotel de Royal"
. and general all-'round satisfaction is
now assured. There are some comedy
- bits in the new program that are de_
clared "positive screams." and with a
vein of wholesome htimor running
through the plot of the play there apparently
will be plenty of material to
dispel the severest case of "peeves."

chapter of the thrilling Helen Holmes
serial, "The Lost Express.' It is called
j_- "The Oil "Well Conspiracy."
