V Dixie Ghost of the Baacho Pijncweo ,...,Flowers ct the Dusk Nelson ,; A Slacker's Heart wWwHO*S Your Friend?" lllas Alice a W/ Davis' most successful and pp / last musical farce in two - guesses, will be presented at : E the Grand. Monday, evening. Decern- : U As a money maker and merry tnakpf or,; "Who's Your Friend J" notches a I high mark on the totem pole of Miss t Dawla. It is the merriest of tales, ?? ?' dealing with the trials ot an octet or lovers, on. marriage bent, -without anyone bat their particular intendeds ; being the wiser. All meet unknown to each other at the same hotel. Fun ; fast and furious follows, with tuneful r songs, qannmy aaaces <mu 1 Jokes being Interpolated. ' In the unraveling o? the tale the ' eight Innocents, discover that, getting 1 into trouble n tar easier than getting .oat of the same difficulty and that 1 lacking a practiced hand, the conse- 1 qsences are more apt to prove a 1 boomerang than a projectile. But. 1 fortunately, all's well tuat ends well. ' and. such tabes place in this merry 1 musical farce. It is, in brief, precisely the type of show that the public : wants, and the inimitable shafts of 1 wit. and barbs of social commentary that brighten it. together with the songs and dancing, send the auditors away in a happy, frame of mind. . It will be presented here by a cast .as w^ll known to Broadway playgoers as any appearing there at the present ft time. Among the principals are: ' a Hazel Sands, Eleanore Bicketts, Gertrude tester, Manuel Suarez, Jean North, Chick Harvey and Guy Bartow '?*? . 1 Washburn at the Dixie. f t There is nothing particularly new about the plot of the Bryant Wash- i burn .film at the Dixie today. Just as the public gets its fill of the story of the prodigal son, the bright young men of today sab down and wrote a story about a prodigal sou who went : out and made good like a house afire, a . That happened way back when bricks : were the fashionable writing surface, W&. but it is a fact that the story never j gets old when it is told brightly. < That's the case with the Ghost, of the Rancho. It is the old story, but at , that it is so brand new and original ] that every one who sees it for the , first time wants to see it again so that he will be able to remember all the j 1?.' nice little points that are brought out < in the picture. ( Gladys Brockwell in Knltur. * "a . , For a long time to come the great ' Uf ' war will exert a powerful influence I . upon the. silent drama, and because . t^ey give such an excellent opportusrity to add heart interest, the spy plot . ? will be cnltiTated by the best producers. One of the most ambitious along s that line that has so far been released is Kultur, which was produced at the ' William Fox studio with Gladys J Erockwell in the stellar role. This;' Kfe,. drama will be at the Nelson Monday.

The show will move from Clarksburg to Fairmont by trolley, as there Is only one train in that direction and it at ten o'clock at night.
