shown at the Princess Theater on
Monday. Buddy Bennett (Mr. Barry
more) is the leading man of the Chi
cago Ideals Theater Company, a barn
storming troupe which comes to grid
on the road.
The play depicts graphically the life
of traveling players who are nr*t over
burdened with success. The company
is playing "Camille" through the west
and the receipts dwindle .with each
performance. “The End of the Tour
shows the interior of three different
small town theaters, in all of which
the company plays “Camille.” On the
first night the players take in $19.30.
the next $9 tiO. and finally—nothing.
Irate sheriffs pounce upon the com
pany to demand money for overdue
board bills, and the enterprising man
ager puts costumes on them and
makes actors of them for the night to
impress the audience with the size of
the “troupe."
Small town fire engine houses, rivaJ
companies of which give amateur per
formances of “The Fireman’s Bride.”
anil other gems add to the fun. The
actors, stranded, teach the firemen
how to act, and thus earn a few sir*** i«
meals. Finally help comes from an
unexpected source. Some of the in
teresting characters are Skinny Smith,
the fat property man of the troupe;
Lester Montague, the villain; Lottie
Lee, soubrette; Seth Perkins, of J. K.
Jessup Hose Co.; Hen Springer, of
Hose Co No. 1, and Percy Penninp
ton, a “fresh" commercial traveler.
Full advantage is taken of the possi
bilities for human in "The End of the
Tour."
On the same program is Francis X.

last of the great series of two part
dramas, "The (Ireat Secret ” Don’t

quested Mr. Pox to give a series of

every morning at lb o’clock ot the
Lyric theater, and from which thou

In a recent interview Mr. Pox said:
"1 believe every mother In the world
will wish her sons and daughters to
see this picture. 1 especially want the
members of women’s clubs and feder
ations and the great artists of the
world to see it. My reason is that
beauty has heen captured and trans
ferred to the film, and that a theme
of sweetness and goodness, linked
with vast spectacular episodes, can
he made Into a picture of immense
magnificence and appeal.”
