the
med John Marvin are trying to j
swindle Mrs. Jörns out of the hotel!
property, because on the grounds ;

build a power hou.-e. The chief
crook is a suave lawyer, whose
modus operandi is to make love to
Mrs. Jones" Iottr daughter, while
pdlling the wool over the mother's
f. cs about tbu property.
John Marvin comes into the pic
ture just in time to spoil the plans
of ibe lan grabbers by getting
Lightnin" " to refuse to sign the
sales papers. The conspirators try to
have John arrested for stealing his
own timber, but he foils the eager
sheriff by the simple expedient of
.stepping over to the California side
of the hotel ottice. Mr. Thomas, the
'smooth lawr, succeeds in dis
crediting John and persuades Mrs.
JoiKi that it is her duty to divorce:
"laghtnin' " t-o th.it idie can tell out
for a fortune and end' her days in
comfort. Thereupon "Ushtnin "
disappears.
The next trene reveals the su
perior court at Ueno, which really
isn't to darn superior, as the fellow
.said about the sha.ggy do. (Note
Shaggy dog story will be mailed on
application to editor.) The Judge,
a former guet at the Calivada ho
tel, is very much In love with one of
the applicant.' for a divorce and
x:aturally can't be annoyed to any
great extent by the other matters up
for decision.
By a conveniently arranged coin
cidence the divorce case of Jones
vb. Jones arid the timber stealing
case against John Marvin are on the
s-amo day's call. The taturninn
sheriff, aware that he cannot arrest
John inside the court room, lies in
wait outside, and John comes in
through the window.
"IJ-ghtnin' " also appear, drew
ed in his G. A. It. uniform, and re
veals that he la living at a soldiers

The case of Jones vs. Jones Is be
ing handled fo- Mrs. Jones by
Lawyer Thomas. It is pLün to see
that Mrs. "LUhtnin " doesn't rrvUly
want to go through with it, hut
.rhat I a happy home to a power
corporation ?

The most friendly bit of advice ! sired scenic effects, is a Harvard
man, and of course Jennie becomes
a Vassar student. The former fact
gives Mr. Davis a chance to make a
play on college life, the college
campus, the boat crew, etc.. and
there is no denying the fact that the
it
that can he given prospective vis
itors to New York is: "Be sure to
see "Iaghtnin'."
Just why it is that certain theatri
cal stars can abandon the "spoken
stage" for the "screened drama"
and back again and be all the bet
ter for their experience affords real
food for real thought.

wonderful personality, "went thou

have an improvement.
Miss Brady recently opened one of
the new Shubert playhouse, the

did not take her 10 minutes to prove
she wns sweeter than ever if possi
ble a better actress than ever, and
that the screen had left an indelible,

This is not an isolated case. The

"To Hell With the Kaiser" is the greatest ar
raignment of Prussianism and the Hohenzollerns
ever made. It is America's challenge to bestiality
and f rightfulness. It employs a cast of 17 prin
cipals and over 2,000 extras. Shows how Amer
ican aviators could capture the Kaiser. Details
how an American girl put an end to the Crown
Prince. Shows how we are fighting to win the
war in the air, and is therefore, in full accord with
the sentiments of the United States Government.
In it are lifelike characterizations of the men who
have made America famous and Germany in
famous. "To Hell With the Kaiser" is a picture
that every red-blooded American should see and
will be mighty sorry to miss. Berlin will thank
you if you miss it. Read what the Chicago press
thinks of "To'Hell With the Kaiser:"
"Most absorbing, tremendously interesting and
essentially dramatic picture that has been shown.
Hearty applause never ceased." Mae Tinee, Chi
cago Tribune. "Holds the interest. Audience liked
it, which is the best test of worth in fildom."
Ormo Moody Lawrence, Chicago Post. "The title
is all right and the intent's all right and the
acting's all right. A patriotic epic. They applaud and
applaud and have good reason to." Kitty Kelly,
Chicago Examiner. "Punchy scenes, corldng pho
tography and some comedy. Well worth seeing."
Rob Roeel, Chicago American. "Splendid
stirred a loyal audience hits the nail on the head.
Good movie done expertly acted by intelligent
actors." W. K. Hollander, Chicago News. "Gives
victory key showing marvelous patriotism. One
of the finest pictures made." Virginia Dale, Chi
cago Journal.
No advance in prices, 15, 10 and 6 cents. Can you imagine us showing a picture three days? Yes, it is a
world-beater and we should keep it a week. Don't forget Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and to accom
modate the big morning crowds we will start sharply at 10 o'clock instead of 11. Come to matinees and avoid
the 8 o'clock show you can't get in so come early or 9:15. Well, "To Hell With the Kaiser," nothing ever like
it and all you will hear on the street after seeing it will be "To Hell With the Kaiser." Watch what Prof. Shamp
will do with "To Hell With the Kaiser." He will raise you up in your seats with his special music. Don't for
get three days, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
