engagement with what will be con
sidered ; by : their many friends and
patrons to be a week of entertainment
and one that will linger long in the
minds of their, patrons when it comes
to, -things theatrical." By special ar
rangement with his play brokers, Mr,
Nutt has secured, what he terms two
of the very best plays offered for
stock; purposes, presenting Monday,
Tuesday and "Wednesday a play dis
couraging the divorce question, "The
Fighting Parson." It has plenty of
good comedy running throughout the
action, of the play and one that of
fers, laughs, thrills and tears. Com
mencing .with special Christmas day
matinee and continuing throughout the
balance " of the
another of TV. C. Herman's successes,
"Th Millionaires Son and, The Shop
GirL" This play tells a story of a girl
Who had no mother to guide her and
shows the many temptations offered
some working girls and how. easily it
is to resist them. Eoth of these pro
ductions tare clean, clever and compell
ing and with the new vaudeville fea
tures introduced' ' between act3 the
theatre goers may look forward to an
evenings entertainment that will over
shadow the . former successes- of this

he had to be picked up and helped to

for several days. The result on the
screen justified the price Mr. Ray
thought, as it i3 a fine bit of realism.
"Talk about your ring fights such
as I had in The Egg Crate Wallop,
tsaid Mr. Ray "a regular ring battle
is nothing compared with one of these
rough-and-tumble scraps on stairs
With all my training with the gloves

took , in the last picture I didn't sus
tain one-third the bruises that I did
in this one. I'm glad it is done. I do
