The elixir of a child's love and its "Pollyanna," her first United Artists' men and women whose outlook on life has become distorted was demon strated at Poii's theatre last night, when Mary Pickford appeared in "Pollyanna her first United Artiste' production This picture-play differs from anj of Little Mary's recent productions in that she portrays a little girl through out the entire picture. There is nothing more convincing than Miss Pickford's characterization in this photoplay. She does not merely act the part of a little girl; she is a little girl. Her work in "Pollyanna" indicates that she has devoted un limited time to the study of children, for there is no small characteristic which, has escaped her. As Pollyanna Whittier, Mary Pick ford quickly faa her. way to the hearts of tkose who watch the play and success in holding their deepest sympathy until the very last fiickei in the final fade-out. There is a depth of feeling in this picture that has never been shown in any other production. M;ss Pickford puts all the delicate shading into her work that only a great artist is capa ble of. She often carries her aurii ence to a tear an i then suddenly snaps the tension by a bit of quaint, laugh provoking comedy. The pranks played by Pollyanna furnish uening fun. Those with whom she comes in contact think it strange that this little girl is able to be glad no matter what happens. Hei unusual philosophy wins many friends, and in the end, after she has been badly hurt in an accident,' those who had held out persistency against her teachings, and- who needed the leaven of her philosophy he most, saw the folly of their ways and the "glad game" became a part of heir lives Five acts of vau-ville are present ed today in conjunction with "Polly anna."

He made, a fsood impression and so he sailed across the seven seas to Australia. His name was Herbert Hoover American. Vernon Kellogg, in Eve.rbodvs' for March, gives an interesting detailed diescription of the life that Herbert Hoover ltd in West Australia in the early '90's, making good mines out of bad ones and keeping his eye out for a good mine that was never bad. He found it. Ke'logg states: "And pretty soon he did the other successful thing that the pig men in London hoped for, and that he kept always working for. He uncovered a big new mine. He had turned up several promising leads, but their development proved disappointing. But the. 'Sons o; Owal!' realized his hopes from 'the be ginning.

Shubert, "Maytime," a genuine dra matic and musical novelty, by Rida Johnson- Young, with music by Sig mund Romberg, will be seen for the first time at the Park theatre, three days beginning tonight, matinee Wed nesday. To those who keep posted on the more important theatrical events, "Maytime" is by no means an un known quantity. News of its excep tional worth as a "distinctliy differ ent" entertainment has already trav elled far and wide from New Tork, where it was seen and heard by over a half million pa trons during a recora run of two years. In Chicago the vogue of Maytime for six months rivalled the patronage accorded it in New Tork. Boston found it equally delightful. It ran for five months in that city. Certain it is that "May time" in nowise resembles any recent musical offering. In fact, it marks a real innovation in stage fare. All ox the scenes are laid on Manhattan Island and the action, starting in a Washington Squar'e garden in 1840, carries on for almost a century, reaching the climax in the busy times of today. The fact that each of the four eras depicted 1840, 1855, 1880 and 1919 are accurately reproduced as to costumes and manners makes for a picturesqueness in staging "Maytime" that will delight the jaded theatregoer.

I With a production like "The Ro sary" as an attraction for this week patrons of the Lyric theatre will be given a treat that they are sure to appreciate for many weeks to come. "The Rosary" introduces an inter esting character portrayed by Arthur Griffen. as Father Kelly, a priest, but a good fellow in every respect. Father Kelly teaches a lesson which will benefit not only the people who at tend relipious services regularly but the ministers as well, especially those who are inclined to expect too much from a mere being. Briefly Father Kelly is a broad-minded individual who believes in the old adage, "Live and let live," and is ready to enter into the spirit which prevails at almost any gathering. The play itself is a comedy drama and the humor and dramatic situa tions are so cleverly interwoven that the audience is no sooner carried to the highest point of dramatic fervor when they are amused by a flash of humor that sets them laughing. The story has a moral and few can attend without feeling the benefit of its les son. There will be two performances daily, afternoon and evening.
