Three Men and a Girl Dixie The Spark Divine Princess...One Think at a Time O'Day SUCH a bill "Aa the Man from Mexico" admits of plenty of "ad lib' stuff, and one who saw the bill the first night would hardly have recognised it last night as much new stuff crept into it. Billy Malone and Jack Lamar seemingly rorgot there was . script, and went In for a good time, and Judging by the fun Nina Morru and Marie Kruaer ant nut nf the show. twe think they should at least have paid war tax, it not a tull admission. The grocery store helned till the house again last night, and a lot of folks went away with bundles of canned goods, soap, bread and what not. A fine 60 piece'set of dishes was also given away last nlgbl. BpV' New Bill at Dixie. ""X~change is offered at the Dixie today, the only change in movie programs In the theatres today. Alice Joyce Is the star, and the story tells of a child of parents grown suddenly wealthy, who is deprived of her rag doll by cold hearted servants, who wish to train the girl tor the social duties her newly acquired riches have made possible The parents also ar? ambitious for the girl, now grown to womanhood, to make a brilliant niar1 riage. But her heart, long hardened ?the lack of love in her noine, does not respond to Ihe pleas of her various lovers. A rich tnluer conies from the West and asks her hand in marriage. She consents If he will take her without love, lie agrees, provided that she will not evade motherhood. A year later a child Is born, which does not appeal to her very much until the little ^ fellow Is about three, when he is supposedly kidnapped, and the mother love Is bom through lear and distraction. The scenario writer who so little understands human nalutc as to inma he can work up much interest in a mother wljo doesn't care for her child, it such f a.thing can really be, has overlooked a fundamental thai tne public will not overlook. Tills falsity weakens I history which otherwise i acceptable The decorative beauty of the production, the realistic handling of the brilliant social aflairs ::i which :he perI socages look like genuine society bilks fesOiul the brilliant playing of the load n g characters demand recognition. William Charieton, Ja.. playing opposite Alice Joyce, is a capital character, Iris manner Is faultless and his stately bearing leads u pretty dignity to the part. Circus Story Repeats. Bert LyteU's citcus story is again the attraction at the Princess, and yesterday it filled the hill very well tor those who like this kind of entertainment, and we guess that includes most everyone. Notable on lite Princess t program Is the Atlantic City stuff ano had ihe picture been here a few days, days when tho thermometer was hitting the high spots. \he Princess film would have been a welcome visitor.
