The story opens with Christmas
time in two homes, one that of
Pietro, the other of a millionaire
manufacturer. Despite the differ
ence in the homes, the spirit of
Christmaa Is the same. In each
lives a little girl, the sunshine of
the houeehold. In a desperate at

brother of the millionaire kidnaps
his child. Pietro, who has delivei td
a Christmas tree to the manufac
turer's home, Is blamed. Desperate

story is again told on the screen.
Pietro has lost his child, and life
seems to hold nothing for him. He
prepares to return to Italy. At the
end of the picture something hap-
the lump in your throat, for Pietro
finds something that brings the
sunshine back again. A feature of
the program vthich it is sure every
one in the audience appreciated waa
the tousle. With the gayer parts -if
the picture, the holiday scenes and
the playing children, came lighN
laughing tunes. When sorrow and
grief were portrayed the music
played fitted perfectly into the
mood of the character. Not only did
Mr. Beban charm his huge audi
ences with his -acting, but be de
lighted with curtain talks. "When

said Mr. Beban, "I was told that

and who gained tbe good of appro

her duties. Though the story makes
its direct appeal tor the interest

for the student of human nature in
it Revealing the heroine , In her
public life the life of her career
and In her private lite that of
her nature the play gives Miss
Swanson a difficult task to master,
and she displays high talent or at
least excellent directing in her
handling of the part Her costumes
are gorgeous, as befits the premiere
danseuae of gay Paris, and she uses
many of them in tbe course of the
play. Settings, too, are grand af
faire. Mere mention of the names
of Miss Swanson's support will
mean much to movie enthusiasts. It
is a galaxy Harrison. Ford, David
Powell, Walter Hlera and Ann Corn
wall lead too list, and their work
adds much to the picture. AU in
all, "Her Gilded Cage" presents a
variety of attractiveness not to be
found is the ordinary variety of pic
ture plays. A Hy Mayer travelogue,
the la(est pictorial news and one of
.hose comic Aesop's Film Fables
cartoon pictures help make the first
half bill attractive at the Spencer
Rrvue at Capital.
Without question the best revue
the Capitol has presented since its
opening is showing at the Daven
port theatre this week, with Ed
Mwry in the- leading comedy role.
In spite of the bad weather of Sun
day, there was a good attendance
at the theatre and the-audience was
loud In its applause for the Synco
pation Revue. Manager lAveredge
in bringing tbe organization to
gether grouped a number of high
class vaudeville acta, a company of
25, and the entertainment provided
was greeted with a warm wel
come. Mr. Lowry works someth'ng
after the fashion of Eddie Cantor,
announcing his acts and keeping
his audience in a mirthful mood
throughout the presentation of tbe
show. - The Gibson sisters, dancers
of quite a reputation in the theat
rical worlds having been with the
"Follies" last year and "The Pass
ing Show" the year before, have a
terpischorean act of the better
class. Farrman and Furman are
singers who were repeatedly en
cored. Juantta Means, who was
with Raymond Hitchcock's "Hitchy
Koo" and who is to return to the
1923 version Of that revue, was
also high up on the bill as an en
tertainer. The company has an
orchestra of 10 artists which keeps
the performers stepping fast.

T AMES J. STARRO W, fuel adminis
I trator of Massachusetts, says, "Don't
J burn a pound of coal in October.
Cook and heat water for your household
with a kerosene stove. It will save you
-money. It will perhaps keep you out of
the coal line next winter. Cooking by
kerosene is cheaper than coal. Kerosene
can be bought anywhere."
".Kerosene can be bought anywhere.''
This statement is particularly true
throughout the Middle Western states
served bythe Standard Oil Company
(Indiana), whose' distribution service is
lOOb complete. Kerosene is delivered
to the home, whether on a distant farm,
in a smsil town, or in a big city.
Imagination and foresight were required
to anticipate the demand for petroleum
products which exists today Permanency
- in organization, efficient management
and dost attention to the minutest detail
has resulted in establishing within this
Company a spirit of service which is
expressed in the far-flung system of dis
tribution and delivery which makes every
user of petroleum products in the Id"
Middle Western States feel certain that
his needs will be instantly supplied.
. The Standard Oil Company (Indiana)
distributing system represents an invest
, nent of over $45,000,000. it includes 25
main stations where complete stocks of
products are kept, on hand, 3973 bulk
stations, 1605 service stations and 7167
tank wagons. It has grown to meet the.
needs of the present and to anticipate
the needs of the future. It is highly
flexible and capable at all times of meet
ing emergencies, such as a coal shortage,
in any section of the territory served.
This service is available at everyhome.
To meet th needs of the. public it serves
is the ideal which the Standard Oil Com- -pany
(Indiana) has before it at all times.
It is alert to foresee a possiblepeed for its
products, and w-hen the demand comes it
is ptepared to supply it; for example, the
possible coal shortage has resulted in an
unusual demand for a burning oil for use
in home-heating plants, and the, Com
pany was ready with Stanolind Furnace
Oil, which it had developed for this
particular service. .
Stanolind Furnace oil is equal to kero
sene in heating value pd sells at slower
V price. This is another benefit accruing
to the public at large, through, an em- J
cientlv rotnaged big business. jV
