STAGE AMD SCREED LYRIC THEATER Abe Lincoln said that you can fool a?l of the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time,' and the same, holds true to motion pictures. The things that were good a year ago are out of date today. Pic tures that were made three or four years ago would hardly pass muster today. In the face of these facts, a good many of the exhibitors in the United States are showing their pat rons pictures that are relics of the dark ages. We believe that the man ager of the Lyric Theatre is trying to give the Public the latest and best in photoplays, judging from the line up which he has given us for the coming week. On Thursday and Fri day of this week, William S. Hart will appear in the first one of his late pictures to be shown in Williston en titled "The Narrow Trail," which is great improvement over the old pictures that have been shown from time to time in Williston. On Satur day, Kitty Gordon will appear in her latest World Pictures entitled "The Interloper," which is said by critics to be one of the best pictures releas ed this year. In addition of this splendid program will be shown anoth er of those Fox Sunshine Comedies entitled "Shadows of her Pests." We have seen these comedies and can recommend them. Jack Pickford is getting more and more popular with film fans, of his rare sense of humor. You will get a good many laughs out of one of his latest pictures entitled "Jadk and Jill" which will be shown at the Lyric Theater on next Monday and Tues day. This is a story that is laid in the west, and one that you will enpoy greatly. On Wednesday, Alice Joyce will ap pear in "The Song of the Soul,' a picture full of good entertainment. In addition to this program will be shown the latest Hearst-Pathe news on the screen. The Pathe Company is lo cated in France, and have their photographers on the firing line, and as a result, are able to show some of the big events that actually happen ed at the front. These news pictures alone are worth the prices of admis sion. Mary Roberts Rinehart is without doubt the leading author in America today. When you think of her you immediately think of the "Bab" stories that made her famous. On Thursday and Friday, June 27th 28th, Marguerite Clark will appear in "Bab's Burglar," the famous story that ran in the Saturday Evening Post, and which everyone enjoyed so much. ORPHEUM Special attention has been given to the selecting of the Orpheum pro gram for the coming week by Man ager Broderick and it is without doubt one of the most attractive programs that has been shown in the city lor some time. Nothing but the latest and the best in photo plays are now appearing at this theatre. Friday and Saturday of this week the Orpheum is showing the beauti ful and georgeously gowned Edna Goodrich in the play of the day "Who Loved Him Best?" This picture is intensely interesting from start to finish and the scenes and the photog raphy of the picture is most beauti ful. Along with this picture on Fri day will be shown another chapter of the "Eagle's Eye" and on Saturday the old favorite Wm. S. Hart is one fhis famous comedy dramas "Tam ming of the Four Fushers." Mon day and Tuesday a star that needs very little mention. Clara Kimball Young with the famous company pre sents "The Marienettes". A picture of merit that will thoroughly interest the most particular of film fans. Along with this picture there is an other rattling roaring comedy, the kind that drives dull care away. Wednesday and Thursday a Blue bird Photoplay, we are all familiar wit hthis brand of plays and the man agement has used good judgment in the selection of this particular one "The Flashlight." A picture featur ing Dorothy Phillips and portraying some of the most beautiful scenes to be found in film land. The weekly News picture is also shown on these days. —Buy W. S.
