Presented there, i he Master Mys HANDCUFF KING AT EMPPRESS. The appearance In the movies of Houdlnl, the handcuff king, at the Empress, has aroused additional Inter tery. Houdlnl is himself a mystery. His achèvement with the handcuffs alone gave him an International reputation, but his other feats have raised him far above the plane of the usual per former. Recently a leading magazine featured him as the most remarkable "escape" man In the world. He can escape from any device and has done it .although experts have locked him up, sealed him up and tossed him, thus encased Into the river. Another picture at the Empress bill today is one of the greatest spectacles of tho season, "The Wolf." a story of the northwest, replete with action and adventure and ribboned with a deli cious love story. It Is among the strongest things ever put on the screen. NEW PLAY AT STRAND. A new play opened at the Strand today. It Is "Poor Boob," which In a way, means nothing, hut when It Is associated with the fact that Bryant Washburn Is the leading man a signi ficant message is flashed to every mind—that it Is a rattling good come dy.

"The Panorama Kid" Is put up in the ; form of an entertainer named Jean j Pamm, and his stunt Is worth going some distance to witness. Brook and Soarps have a mighty funny act—a Chinese novelty — that catches on wonderfully with the crowds. Jordien Is a witty monologutst and cleverly manipulates a round of com edy tricks. The show Is "big circuit" attrac j tlon. The principal picture continues to j attract attention, being an American I play with uu English accent—"The American Way." ''JOHNNY GET YOUR GUN." j One of the most Important an nouncements made by the manage I ment of a resident company of play j ers In this city is that of the manager i of the Empress theatre In making pub lic the completion of his contract for j production In this city of "Johnny Get Your Gun" next Friday, Saturday j and Sunday. i Those who pay more than superficial attention to the history of the theatre j will at once realize .hist what this means—the bringing here of a play J that enjoyed a run of a year In New j York, another year on "the road" and , one of the best comedy dramas ever produced by an American author. A , play with "punch,'' with heart Inter- ! est and yet so full of comedy that ' I the often advertised phrase of a "laugh i I a minute" really comes true Is re markable. "Johnny Get Your Gun" i was written by Edmund Laurence . Burke and later revised by Miss Dor- : othy Donnelly. A# a vehicle for the Empress players ! j It la Ideal for every member of the j caat has an equal opportunity to share I In the spotlight honors and In addition j It calls for a company of extra players. • The opening scene, that of a motion \ picture studio on the California coast, i will furnish novelty and the final scenes are laid In a wealthy home on Long Island. The "Johnny" of tho cast Is a foppish English nobleman. DEATHS—FUNERALS 8YTHOFF — Henry Sythoff died Sunday night at the Idaho Soldiers' home hospital, after an lllnesa ot one month, age H4 years.
