Th movie game has made some prett nice fortunes for men who had th brains and pep to go after public pa rrvnnorp thmnph tho npwsnnnfcrs. very clever example of such a man i H. C. Rorater, principal owner and di rector of the Alhambra theatre in T< ledo. He conducts his business on broad and systematic basis. No jerk or spasmodic campaigns and no ha! hearted methods are tolerated by th management. Weeks before a big re; tare is put on at his theatre, he lias a the available material for planning publicity campaign, and he calls i the advertising men of the daily new: papers, and with their aid and suggei tlons, mark out a definite scheme c procedure, and follow it with all th power there is in you. Here are hi own words about publicity for movi bouses: "You cannot be successful as an exhibitor without a liberal advertising policy. No matter how good a picture may be, you will not insure its profitable presentation minus newspaper and outdoor publicity. "Many exhibitors underestimate the importance of letting their newspapermen have free rein; theso men think and plan adver-"'1 ninn linnr? using anu |iuunvuj ?vu.? each day and they have many good suggestions if the manager will onl ytakc them into his confidence and encourage them. "I firmly believe in the necessity of planning the advertising campaign many weeks in advance. Do not wait until the last minute. Read the campaigns given in the press books, pick out what you think it adaptable to your city, add to these any original ideas of your own and then get busy and appropriate the proper sum to put tbom over." Charle8 Ray in Farvorite Role. There is little in the title "Strin Beans" at the Nelson today to ind cate the trend of the story, but th beans do have a little part in the pic all right. Charles Ray is the ilgur around which most of the interest i manifested, and he is cast in the roi he impersonates without a rival. A a simple minded country boy, timl< faltering, but hard working and hor est, he is most likable, and one feel almost a personal satisfaction whe tho lad by his willingness to do an: thing he can, come.4 into his owi which includes the hiart of a prett country lassie. The story starts hit as a rustic poet, struggling as a fan ?hand amid almost impossible circum stances these days, when the farmer i a very different man from the trad tional stage concept.

Dinner Dance Tonight Society folks will hold a reunion tonight at the dinner dace at The Fair's mont which is the opening of the post Lenten social season in the city. A :S large number of acceptances were rey ceived by Manager Fatt for this event y ] numbering approximately 200. It has ' been announced that Barnard's org j chestra of Altoona, Pa., which is one y 1 of the celebrated dance orchestras of e! Pennsylvania, will render music for y the dancing. It is its first appearance e in this city. f. The Barnard orchestra will play for k the Elks' dance on Wednesday night g and for the K. of C. dance on Thurs[_ day night, the three events taking prej. j cedence in importance over other a' smaller events. y ? ?

He gives the country boy a job collecting bills, and he advances by degrees until he becomes a factor in preventing some getrich-quick swindlers from establishing a fake cannery for string beans. At a public meeting, where the subject is to be discussed, the old editor expects to make the oratorical effect of his life to oppose the scheme, but his health breaks down at the last minute, and ho delegates the efficient country boy to address the meeting. What the boy passes through in his vain attempt to address the assemblage is an exceptionally fine example of psychology, his every secret misery clearly depicted on his face and by his gestures. The audience roars, all but ono pitying girl. Through the agency of this girl and the country boy the act of villainy, which reaches the holdup stage, is prevented, and their little love story is the means of saving her father from being seriously victimized.

The play is one of the greatest of American plays, and the picture one of the very big features of its kind because both of them deal with actualities that come home intimately to everyone of us. The study and preparation given to the picture deserve a special mention for both the star and the director and the cast that contributed. The cast, specially selected, headed i by Fannie Ward, includes Easter Walters, Mary Alden, Helen Dunbar, W. E. Lawrence, Fred Woodwins, Andrew Arbuckle and John Barrows. Tom Moore at Princess. "A Man and His Money" is the title | of the story at the Princess today in. which Tom Moore is featured. It is, a comedy drama of society life with ail the attendant luxuries, frivolities and even drawbacks. The plot leads from drawing room to polo grounds, country clubs and mountain resorts allowing a varied setting that doesn't allow one to even think of being bored by monotony. The added feature on the program today is Pearl White in "The Lightning Raider." Last Week for Manhattan Players.
