To save the greatest literary center of the state of Connecticut from the desecration that will overtake it if it is wrecked and an apartment house built on its site is the aim of the Artists' Cluib of Hartford. This organization Is to hold a meeting this afternoon to formulate plans for a campaign which will em brace all parts of the country where there resides one admirer of Mark Twain, America's groat humorist. The recent announcement of the new otvn ers of the property is that they pro pose to wreck the hou.se aibout which clusters all the sacrcl memories of the great literary artist who is not alono American, but who, through the beauty of his work, has swayed the world from laughter to tears. In the place of Mark Twain's home will rise a modern apartment which will never, at the height of its value, replace where, from the facile pen., came the glorious sparkling adventure of the real American boy, "Huok Finn." These" are the contentions of those who seek to keep for Hartford, an other of its landmarks about which history clusters and probably the most universally known of these landmarks which have thus far escaped desecration. In The Theatres PLAZA. The Plaza theatre offers for the last time today Rupert Hughes fa mous story, "The Cup of Fury," He lene Chadwick takes the leading role and is well supported by an ail star cast. "The Cup of Fury" is truly a great picture, a picture whose story will linger in your mind for months after you have seen it. The vaude ville bill playing in conjunction with this seven reel feature is one of a variety, and is as follows: CeMna's Circus, which consist of dogs, ponies and monkeys and put over a. up-to-the-minute animal offering, Clark and Story in a refined song and piano offering. Warren and Mabel, "The Komical Kouple," in a farce comedy offering entitled, "Put in the Book," Jim Doherty, with Irish songs and stories, completes the bill. Hearst News and a two reel O'Henry are also shown. An extraordinary bill of all fea tures will be presented at the Plaza theatre for the last half of this week. An all star cast will be shown in the famous masterpiece, "The Lady of the Dug-out." This is a story that grips EDITED BY DAVID J.

Kangaroos and other typ ically Australian animals have been obtained for the scenes. The story proper was filmed in the East and the finishing of the prologue, strange ly enough, will complete the picture.

GANNON FUNERAL DIRECTOR AND EMBALMER Hi John Street 'Phone 34 9 S Residence 235 Vine St. Phone 125 LYRIC. With comedy and drama so clever ly interwoven that one does not su percede the other, that wonderful production, "The Rosary," is scoring unprecedented success at the Lyric theater this week. The story of the i play is one of unusual interest and shows distinctly that there is only , one road to travel to succeed in life. Although the play has the church for j a background it is not a religious ! production in the full sense of the word. Arthur Griffen, the Poll Players' comedian, gives an excellent portrayal of this difficult but picturesque role, "Father Kelley." Miss Mary Ann Dentler, the leading woman, appears in the dual role of Vera Wilton and her twin sister, Alice, which requires some quick changes of costume. Next week the Players present roaring farce comedy, "A Pair of Queens," which is said to be the fun niest production which has appeared here in a long time. GEORGE P.

Calls received at j any hour of the day or night I ' EMPIRE Jack Pickford, taking the part of Johnny Spivens in "In Wrong" which will be shown at the Empire theatre, today is declared to have scored the triumph of his career in his depic tion of a country boy, whose ambi tion is stimulated by a love affair and mocked by his commonplace sur roundings. As a portrayer of the roles of ado lescent boys, Pickford has rightly earned the place of leading juvenile on the screen. His interpretation of Mark Twain's "Tom Sawyer" dem ; onstrated that his talents in comedy j lines were decidedly pronounced. La i ter, starring in "Bill Apperson's Boy," ! he proved himself able to handle the . most delicate dramatic situations. His j role in "In Wrong" gives him the ! opportunity to combine heart throbs ' and chuckle in a most delightful manner. HENRY H. JOSEPH F.
