Of ajl our younger actors, there is
no one better fitted both by natural
endowments and
Margaret Anglin training for "lead
ing business" than
Fred Eric, who will be seen here in
support, of Margaret Anglin in her
delightful love-comedy "Billeted,"
which will be the attraction at the
Orpheuni to-day, matineo and night.
Mr. Eric did his earliest acting with
Julia Marlowe, beginning as a boy
and remaining with her for six years,
eventually reaching the position of
her leading man in "The Countess
Vaieska." He then quit acting for
a while to try his hand as a produc
ing director, staging "Much Ado" and
"Rosemersliolm" for the Century
Players. He also staged "The La.iy
Shore" for Virginia Harned. He
then resumed acting, joining the
Hohtren-Marlowe Company playing
Juvenile leads in this country and
in England. On his return to America
lie originated the part of Alcaus in
Percy Mackays' poetic tragedy
"Sappho and Phaon." He was then
engaged us leading man with Maude
Adams In "Quality Street" and in
he! Harvard University performance
of "Twelfth Night." He has also
acted important roles In "Kismet."
"The Nigger," "The Wolfe," "Omar the
Tentmaker," "Androcles and the
Lion," and "The Man Who Maj-ried a
Dumb Wife." He was a prominent
member of John Drew's company in
that actor's revival of "Much Ado
About Nothing.' He was specially
engaged by the late Sir Herbert Tree
for tho part of the Duke of Norfolk
in that lamented actor's American
tour of "Henry VIII." Mr. Eric joined
Miss Angltn's forces in December last
to play tho leading part in her com
edy "Billeted" in which he received
the highest econiums of praise dur
ing tho three months run of the
play In New York. He also played
"Orestes" and "Jason" to the "Elec
tra" and "Medea" of Miss Anglin
during her memorable representa- ]
tions of classic Greek tragedies in
Carnegie Hall, New York. Mr. Eric
possesses all the essential require
ments necessary to the skillful actor,
lie has romantic fervor, a keen sense
of humor, a true power of characteri
zation, combined with a tine presence,
a splendid voice, all trained in the
methods of the old as well as the
modern school. He will be seen to
most excellent advantage in the role
of "Captain Rymill," one of the lonely
soldiers in "Billeted."

the Majestic where Chappelle and
Stinette are giving a very clever
imitation of these stars singing their
greatest song hit. McWaters and
Tyson please witli their variety offer
ing. Both possess an abundance of
talent, and put over an act that af
fords the highest kind of entertain
ment. A roller skating novelty, a
Stanley's popular comedy and sing
ing act, round out the bill.
The big feature of the bill the .early
half of next week will be Una Clay
ton, Harrisburg's favorite, sur
rounded by a competent company, in
the character sketch, "Keep Smilin' '.
A strong bill has been booked around
this attraction.
To-day Norma Talmadge, Harris
burg's favorite motion picture star
will be shown in
Normn Tnlmndgc one of her daint
at Colonial iest productions
"Children in the
House." This picture will undoubt
edly draw unusual cvrowds to the
Colonial for various reasons sev
eral of which are they like the
star they'll like the play and best
of all they like the Colonial because
its such a "homey" theater.
Monday and Tuesday of next week
Constance Tamadge, younger sister of
Norma is to be shown in "The Veiled
Adventure." This play like so many
of the others this clever actress has
appeared in is brim full of comedy
as well as melodrama.
She becomes engaged to Reggie
Reggie is one of the kind of fellows
who wears turquoise rimmed glasses
—a wrist watch and all that, but he
finds times enough to carry another
woman's veil around in his pocket.
This starts the story, which is hound
to keep you in an uproar owing to
the ridiculous situations
Harrrisburg movie fans liave one
more chance to go through "A Mid
night Romance" with Anita Stewart.
This picture has played to thousands
of Harrisburgers and many more will
want to see this dainty actress to
day. The story starts when an item
appears in a newspaper that tlhe
Sloan residence burned to the ground.
Three blackmailers read this notice
and decide to secure some money
from young Roger Sloan, the son of
the financier through Blondie Mazie
a good looking girl blackmailer.
Their plans ure thwarted by the
actions of Marie Alexander, a refugee,
who has landed on the eastern coast
and obtained a position at the Sea
side, a famous summer resort. The
story is unique • the scenery superb
and th<! actors splendid. Another un
usual thing about this picture is the
fact that it was written by a woman
—the star is a woman and the
director is not a director but a di
rectoress. But if you have ever seen

Bryant Washburn, popular young
Paramount star, has the leading role
in "Poor Boob," the wholesome, rol
licking, joyous screen story which
is playing at the Regent theater to
day only. It is by far one of the
best laugh-tonics ever seen in this
city, and is decidedly away from the
ordinary, its comedy scenes are rich,
and even the celebrated Sphinx would
have to grin at the laughuble scenes
of this picture. The "Poor Boob"
makes mistakes by the dozen, but
they never bother him; why, they
eventually get him a seat in Con
gress! How? Better stop in at the
Regent and see how; maybe you can
get to Congress, too
Fatty Arbuckle is also on the bill
as an added attraction, in "Good

more laughs!

The Scarecrow Appeals to Glinda the Good
"Hooray!" shouted the Scarecrow,
gaily. "We can now leave this mis
erable Jackdaws' nest whenever we
"But it is nearly dark," said the
Tin Woodman; "and unless we wait
unil morning to make our flight we
may get into more trouble. 1 don't
like these night trips, for one never
knows what will happen."
So it was decided to wait until
daylight, and the adenturers amused
themselves in the twilight by search
ing the Jackdaw's nest for treasures.
The Woggle-Bug found two hand
some bracelets of gold, which fitted
his slender arms very well. The
Scarecrow took a fancy for rings, of
which there were many in the nest.
Before long he had fitted a ring to
each finger of his padded gloves, and
not being content with that display
ho added one more to each thumb.
As he carefully chose those rings
set with sparkling stones, such as
rubies, amethysts and sapphires, the
Scarecrow's hands now presented a
most brilliant appearance.
"This nest would be a picnic for
Queen Jinjur," said he musingly;
"for as nearly as I can make out she
and her girls conquered me merely
to rob my city of its emeralds."
The Tin Woodman was content
with his diamond necklace and re
fused to accept any additional dec
orations; but Tip secured a fine gold
watch, which was attached to a
heavy fob, and placed it in his pocket
with much pride. He also pinned
several jeweled brooches to Jack
Pumpkinhead's red waistcoat, and
attached a lorgnette, by means of a
fine chain, to the neck of the Saw-
"It's very pretty," said the creat
ure, regarding the lorgnette approv
ingly; "but what is it for?"
Kone of them could answer that
question, ho sever; so the Saw-Horse
decided it was some rare decoration
and became very fond of it.
That none of the party might be
slighted, they ended by placing sev
eral large seal rings upon the points
of the Gump's antlers, although that
odd personage seemed by no means
gratified by the attention.
Darkness soon fell upon them, and
Tip and the Woggle-Bug went to
sleep while the others sat down to
wait patiently for the day.
Next morning they had cause to
congratulate themselves themselves
upon the useful condition of the
Gump; for with daylight a great
llock of Jackdaws approached to en
gage in one more battle for the pos
session of the nest.
But our adventurers did no wait
for the assault. They tumbled into
the cushioned seats of the sofas as
quickly as possible, and Tip gave the
word to the Gump to start.
At once it rose into the air, the
great wings flopping strongly and
with regular motions, and in a few
moments they were so far from the
nest that the chattering Jackdaws
took possession without any attempt
at pursuit.
The Thing flew due North, going
In the same direction from whence
it had come. A least, that was the
Scarecrow's opinion, and the others
agreed that the Scarecrow was the
best judge of direction. After pass
ing over several cities and villages
the Gump carried them high above
a broad plain where houses became'
more and more scattered until they
dis .pr.cared altogether. Next came
the wide, sandy desert separating the
rest of the world from the Land of
Oz, and before noon they saw the
dome-shaped houses that proved
they were once more within the bor
ders of their native land.
"But the houses and fences are
blue," said the Tin Woodman, "and
that indicates we are in the land of
the Munchkins, and therefore a long
distance from Glinda the Good."
"What shall we do?" asked the
boy, turning to their guide.
"I don't know," replied the Scare
crow, frankly. "If we w •.. at
Emerald City we could then move
directly southward, and :;o reach our
destination. But we dare not go to
the Emerald City, and the Gump is
probably carrying us further in the
wrong direction with every flop of
its wings."
"Then the Woggle-Bug must
swallow another pill," said Tip, de
cidedly "and wish us headed in the
right direction."
"Very well," returned the Highly
Magnified one; "I'm willing."
But when the Scarecrow searched
in his pocket for the pepper-box con
taing the two silver Wishing Pills, it
was not to be found. Filled with
anxiety, the voyagers hunted
throughout every inch of the Thing
for the precious box; but it had dis
appeared entirely.
And still the Gump flew onward,
carrying them they knew not where.
"I must have left the pepper-box
in the Jackdaws' nest," said the
Scarecrow, at length.
"It is a great misfortune," the
Tin Woodman declared. "But we
are no worse off than before we dis
covered the Wishing Pills:*
"We are better off," replied Tip;
"for the one pill we used has en
abled us to escape from that hor
rible nest."
"Yet the loss of the other two is
serious, and I deserve a good scold
ing for my carelessness," the Scare
crow rejoined penitently. "For in

Lewlstown, Pa., May 17. —Uriah
Kline, a well-known farmer of near

Packer Hospital at Sunbury from in

him on the head. The accident hap
pened while he was working about
the stable on his farm, his wife

He was removed to Sunbury for

made to get the bodies of the men

Several motorboats are also at work

such an unusual party as this acci
dents are liable to happen any mo
ment, and even now we may be ap
proaching a new danger."
No one dared contradict this, and
a dismal silence ensued.
The Gump flew st\adily on.
Suddenly Tip utter.ui an exclama
tion of surprise.
"We must have reached the South
Country," he cried, "for below us
everything is red!"
Immediately they all leaned over
the backs of the sofas to look— all
except Jack, who was too careful of
his pumpkin head to risk its slip
ping oft his neck. Sure enough; the
fed houses and fenees and trees in
dicated they were within the domain
of Glinda the Good; and presently,
as they glided rapidly on, the Tin
Woodman recognized the roads and

buildings they passed, an altered
slightly the flight of the Gump so
that they might reach the palace of
the celebrated Sorceress.
"Good!" cried the Scarecrow, de
lightedly, "We do not need the lost
Wishing Pills now, for we have ar
ried at our destination.
Gradually the Thing sank lower
and nearer to the ground until at
length it came to rest within the
beautiful gardens of Glinda, settling
upon a velvety green lawn close by
a fountain which sent sprays of
flashing gems, instead of water
high into the air, whence they fell
with a soft, tinkling sound into the
carved marble basin placed to re
ceive them.
Everything was very gorgeous in
Giinda's gardens, and while our voy
agers gazed about v. ith admiring
eyes, a company of soldiers silently
appeared and surrounded them.
But these soldiers of the great Sor
ceress were entirely different from
those of Jtnjur's Army of Revolt, al
though they were likewise girls. For
Giinda's soidiers were neat uniforms
and bore swords and spears; and
they marched with a skill and pre
cision that proved them well trained
in the arts of war.
The Captain commanding this
troop—which was Giinda's private
Body Guard —recognized the Scare
crow and the Tin Woodman at once,
and greeted them with respectful
"Good day!" said the Scarecrow,
gallantly removing his hat, while
the Woodman gave a soldierly sa
lute' "we have come to request an
audience with your fair Ruler."
"Glinda is now within her palace,
awaiting you," returned the Cap
tain; "for she saw you coming long
before you arrived.
"That is strange! ' said Tip won-
C "Not at all," answered the Scare
crow; "for Glinda the Good is a
miehtv Sorceress, and nothing that
goes on in the Land of Oz escapes
her notice. I suppose she knows
why we came as well as we do our-
Sel "Then what was the use of our
coming? asked Jack, stupidly.
"To prove you are a Pumpkin

"Germany" Schaefer Is
Called by Great Umpire
New York, May 16. —The great
est comedian in baseball died to-day at
Sarnnac Lake, N. Y. The news of his
unexpected end will bring a pang of re
gret to every baseball fan. in the coun
Herman "Germany" Schafer has been
In poor health for several months but
not even his closest friends knew he
was so close to death.
Schaefer's amusing antics on the
baseball field the past few years made
him an international character. For
many years with the Detroit Tigers and
the Washington team as a second base
man, ho was gradually sidetracked as
a player by younger men. But his
withdrawal from active service in the
field did not banish him from the game,
his acrobatic stunts and playful, clown
ish tricks on the coaching lines befoae
and during games served to keep fans
in gales of laughter. Wherever his
club played, his amusing performances
proved a drawing card.
On leaving the Washington team,
where he and Nick Altrock, the old
time pitcher, comprised a team of fun
makers unique in baseball, Schaefer
joined the Yankees as a coacher and
later Manager McGraw made him a
member of the Giants to keep his team
and spectators in good humor.
Schaefer made the tour around the
world with the Giants and White Sox
some years ago. He was not only the
I life of the party, but his fun-making
i tricks in the games played abroad
ward the palace—even the Saw-
Horse taking his place in the queer
procession. ■
Upon her throne of finely wrought
gold sat Glinda, and she could
scarcely repress a smile as her pe
culiar visitors entered and bowed be
fore her. Both the Scarecrow and
the Tin Woodman she knew and
liked; but the awkward Pumpkin
head and Highly Magnified Woggle-
Bug were creatures she had never
seen before, and they seemed even
more curious than the others. As
for the Saw-Horse, he looked to be
nothing more than an animated
chunk of wood; and he bowed so
stiffly that his head bumped against
the floor, causing a ripple of laughter
among the soldiers, in which Glinda
frankly joined.
"I beg to announce to your glori
ous highness," began the Scarecrow,
City has been o •
of impudent girls with knitting need
les, who have enslaved ail ui*j men,
robbed the streets and public build
ings of all their emerald jewels, and
usurped my throne.
"I know it," said Glinda.
"They alsii-threaten to destroy
me, as well as all the good friends
and allies you see before you," con
tinued the Scarecrow; "and had we
not managed to escape their clutches
our days would long since have
"I know it," repeated Glinda.
"Therefore I have come to beg
your assistance," resumed the Scare
crow, "for I believe you are always
glad to succor the unfortunate and
"That is true," replied the Sor
ceress, slowly. "But the Emerald
City is now ruled by General Jinjur,
who has caused herself to be pro
claimed Queen. What right have I
to oppose her?"
"Why, she stole the throne from
me," said the Scarecrow.
"And how came you to possess
the throne?" asked Glinda.
"I got it from the Wizard of Oz,
and by the choice of the people," re
turned the Scarecrow, uneasy at such
"And where did the Wizard get
it?" she continued, gravely.
"I am told he took it from Pas
toria, the former King," said the
Scarecrow, becoming confused under
the intent look of the Sorceress.
"Then," declared Glinda, the
throne of the Emerald City belongs
neither to you nor to Jinjur, but to
this Pastoria from whom the Wizard
usurped it."
"That is true," acknowledged the
Scarecrow, humbly; "but Pastoria is
now dead and gone, and some one
must rule In his place."
"Pastoria had a daughter, who is
the rightful heir to the throne of the
Emerald City. Did you know that?"

is this girl who owns the throne,

"That is strange," interrupted the
Woggle-Bug, pompously. "I have
been informed that the Wonderful
Wizard of Oz was nothing more than
a humbug!"
