Comedy of the "fly" variety, sug gestive of Broadway and Forty-eec end Street, is blendae with the small town grocery store brand In "Turn to the Right!" the great laugh lla hit which John Golden will pre sent at the Tulane Theatre for one week, commencing next Sunday night, with matinees Wednesday and Saturday, with many favorites of the original New York-Chicagc east and the only compeay on tour. The offering Is unique in that ii combnes the quaint humor of "The Old Homestead" and "Way Down Bast" with the 'smooth, brilliant comedy of "Get'-Rich-Qultck-Walling. ford" and "The Fortune Hunter." While essentially a laughing seu eess, the play Is not without its big dramatic moments, and there ,i even a touch of religious etmosphere falntly suggestive of "Ben-Hur.'" The story deals with the return of Joe Bascom, the only son to the home of i8s widowed mother after a seven years' absence, part of which he has spent in prison. By aecident he is elsely followed by two of als prison pals, Muggs, a piekpocket, and Oilly, a asteblower. The Bascom homestead is theaten ed with seizure by Deacon Tilltger, the skinflint grocer. Tunaper is SO match for the fast-thinking trio, however, and the farm Is rescued by a scheme thoroughly ingenious. Then comes the harvestlin of the peach crop; Joe Baseom's reconilia tlon with his boyhood sweetheart, who happens to be the daughter of Deacon Tllinbe; a successful ven ture in the manuftature of peach Jam by a "syadleta" composed of Joe, Musgs and Gilly; the complete regeneration of the three youths through the Christin nfluence of Joe Bscom's mother, and the clumi nation of Mnasr and Guy's love isalmas In their betrothal to r-oq vmuage beleus are new on gale. ORPHEUM THEATRE. Another two-headliner bill is coming to the Orpheum next week, one of the acts is Harry Fox and Isabel Curtis in a musical comedy sketch. The other act is John Hyams and Leila McIntyre in the playlet, "Maybloom." Harry Fox is a musical comedy star and also a movie favorite. He starred recently in "Oh, Look!" and a musical version of "Brewster's Millions." Miss Curtis Is said to be the most beautiful girl on the stage. Lelia McIntyre, of the red-gold curl. and the crystal-clear voice, is coming back in "Maybloom," with John Hyams as her partner. They have played together in musical ,comedy for several seasons and have been con sidered among vaudeville's best at tractions. Jessie Brown and Effie Weston will give the Orpheum the first two-girl dancing act it has offered in many a week. James B. Donovan, a Jolly chap whose face and name tell exactly what country he came from, comes with Miss Mare Lee, a pretty dancer, in a comedy skit called "Doing Well, Thank Yon." Majares, a marvelous Mexican equilibrist, will be the closing attrac tion of the show. Jean Boydell, eccentric comedienne, will contribute an interval of fun to the bill. Tuck and Clare, comedians, ym nasts and contortionists, will be the first act on the bilL TIOGR8 WIN AGAIN.

Chess is the easiest game In the world to me. During the long dull days of the war nmy father used to play all the time with his friends. At first I did not understand what the chessmen were for, and wondered why father would sit for hours and gaze at the board with its funny-look Ing pieces. One day when I did not want to go out and play I watched him play his game. I became inter ested. I bothered my father so with questions that he chased nme out of the game as soon as he was through with his friend. I waited eagerly for him to get through. lie played a practice game with mIe, and I under stood every move after that. The next game we played, I beat my father, who is a very good chess player. There is nothing wonderful about my way of playing the game. My secre tary, Mr. Azenh.,erg, says that it comlles from reincarnation. A laby is born with good biains, and1 they ex plain it that way. They say that his ancestors or smie spirits have given this power to him because so much ability li one lperson must have taken a long time to develop. w\henl I play chess I can plan my moves six or sev en moves ahead, and most players can only go three moves ahead of the ga:ne. I can't help it at all. I was born that way. I like to play with poor players. At West Point, where I heat 19 games and drew one, there were only nine good players; the oth ers had no business trying to play me at all. I have played lots of fine players in chess. During the war I beat the German governor at Warsaw, and he was an old man and a fine player. Then I drew a game with Rubenstein, the Russian champion, and also drew with Griffin in a blindfolded game in England. I have not played Lasker yet, but one of the 21 I beat in Paris says he drew a game with Lasker, and another said he beat Capablanca. In America, my hardest game so far has been with Colonel Flebeger, sixty-two years old, at West Point.-Samuel Rzeszewsli in Leslie's. BEE SUICIDE NATIONAL PERIL Influential Japanese Newspapers Exalt Christian Idea as to the Sacred. neos of Life. Suicide, which has always been prevalent in Japan, is, according to the Japanese press, even more rife than ever since the financial crisis in the Land of the Rising 8an, says the iterary Digest in a recent lssue. The Dsaka Mainichl, which sees peril to the nation in the prevalence of self Slaughter, acknowledges the excel lences of the Christian view that sul ;ide, Instead ft being merely an apol 'gy for failure, is a crime. Many sul eldes In Japan are due to the fact that the Japanese have "less attachment to life than foreigners," and also to the traditions of feudal times when her belittled life. The Osaka Mainichi says further: 'Death-much more suicidp-means rvasion of responsiblity . . and te notjon that those who commit sud rIde have the keenest sense of respon. ibility is wrong. Suicide is the em kodiment of egoism and irresponsalbll y. One of the strong points of the Dhristlan people is their conviction hat to kill one's self is as criminal ai to kill others."

Then the latter strode across the room, and for a long moment peered into the opening. "It's empty! Everything's gone," he muttered, turning slowly, and Philip exclaimed : "That's why she shot him, Jack. He was stealing! Tony darling." and the speaker went down beslde the girl, "Tony, did you find your father here?" "I didn't see him take anything. Philip." she sobbed bitterly. Her eyes were looking at him, but their exlres sion told him they didn't see him It all. Another problem was tormenting her. Her misery was being added to by the minute. So impatient was Philip to have the matter cleared that be spoke harshly to her. "Tony., you know where those jewels are," said he. "'Tell us instantly!" Then he ejaculated: "That man has them upstairs." IIe was out of the room in a flash, and an awful silence settled over the three until he was with them again. "He hasn't got them." he faltered. "I searched every pocket in his clothes. lBut I found this wad of money. There must he tllousands in it !" lie passed the money to Doctor John. "It wasn't in the safe," said the lat ter, thoughtfully, slipping it into the table drawer. llHs words struck a new terror to Tounihel. Edith had robbed the safe. then, Edith who neser stole unless she was forced to it. The shudders that ran over her brought a feeling of re bellion to Paul Pendlehaven. Philip groaned and began to speak, but the doctor waved him to silence. "Tony," he said sternly, "there's something beneath all this, something you must tell me. Do you know where the things went that were in the safe?" To deny it would be the same as tell ing that a third person had been there. To admit it would forever place her beyond the pale of his love. Yet there was Edith-and Uriah, whom she had sworn to protect. "Yes, I know," she whispered. "Of course, I know," she repeated louder. "You'll tell me," begged Philip, hoarsely. "Great Heavens, child, can't yeou see how awful it looks for your' "Yes," was all she said, miserably. Doctor John was wandering aimless ly about the room. The mysetry that had hung over Tony Devon ever since she had been with them was deeper than ever. He felt like shaking the truth from her, for the sight of his horror-stricken brother filled him with rage which did for the moment obliter ate the past two years in which the girl had been the one bright spot in their home. "Then if you know, Tony," Doctor John ejaculated, "Just out with it Your father evidently didn't take them-" "I did," interrupted Tony.

She was be coming hopelessly entangled, more wo with every word she uttered. "God, I'd rather have given them all to you," mourned Doctor Paul. "I Ia tended to, anyhow." "If your father dies, Tonnlbel," said Doctor John, sternly, "you'll be arreus ed. Oh, Lord! What a mess!" "It's awful," muttered Tony. Simultaneous with her assertion, Reginald Brown opened the door and minced over the threshold. Perfectly certain now that Uriah had but a tem porary wound, and that for the love they bore Tonnlbel Devon, his cousins TULANE NEXT WEEK "' FEB. 27.
