I Mew Bill nt said, little to be de
i l'axtang l'ark sired in the way of
an hour of mirthful
! entertainment. Miss Fremont Benton
; and her capable company are the fea
ture attraction of the park bill in the
sketch, "Handkerchief No. 15," which
depends on its far-fetched fun, on the
circumstance that a married man pre
sented a strange young woman with
his handkerchief bearing his name
and address, and it occasions domestic
complications which lead to a series
of impossible troubles. Frank Moore
and Kitty Sterling were in high favor
with the park audience in "Bits of
Musical Conifedy;" Veronica and Hurl
Fails in their acrobatic novelty. "By
the Sea;" a' charming young lady
billed as "The Tetrazeinne of Vaude
ville," and As-Ro-Mon, one of the few
American Indians in vaudeville, were
pleasing features of the show at Pax

bicycling, gymnastics and juggling.
Do you believe Norma Talmadge
has a lace that resembles the woman
in the moon? Well, she has. That is
the reason her director selected iter
as the star for "The New Moon." her
latest photoplay release which played
to capacity audiences at the Colonial
theater yesterday. This picture plays
to-day and to-morrow. Another fea

"The Coming of the Law." In this

of the battle. But that is not all of
this picture —not bv a long shot—that

"Motive Power" is the right mon-l
iker for a bunch of heavy-weight
ball tossers who decimated the West |
End team list evening at the Fourth
and Seneca street park before a
crowd so multitudinous that the
steel cable which pioiects the Held
nearly gave way. Umpire Jackson.
' who has been having trouble holding
jto his shin pads, appeared with only
|one in this game, and superstitious]
| fans accused him of putting a Jinx I
on the West End, who arc now tied
for first place in the league, instead j
jof gayly sailing the front.
The fans got so jazzed up before
the battle ceased, after seven ses
sions. and the score 6-1. that Edgar
B. Da Kuc, separated himself from a
tine, up-to-date bicycle in order to
get closer to the melee, and to-day
he reported that some other fan took
a fancy to the said wheel and has
not yet returned it. Even this, how
ever, did not seem to dampen the
ardor of Rooter Laßue, who said
that with Buck Ramsey, Strieker,
Howe and all that bunch, the Motive
Power might as well be in the big
leagues, and he vowed it could beat
any team'in the State.
Ramsey was there with everything
and West End only collected four
hits, while Strieker pitched a game
which puzzled the fans. He would
put over a cauple strikes and a ball
or so on a batter and then ease up
and toss one which the batter usu
ally cremated for a safe wallop. At
these crises the party or "nuts" who
make music with their calliope
showed their feeling in harsh melo
It was a game of many spectacular
features. Bill Euker starred bril
liantly by cutting off more runs with
his peg to the home plate when the
bases were jammed. Knight was a
regular big leaguer back -of the
plate; looked like Frank Bowerman
in his palmy days. His three base
clout scored the West-. End one run.
When Howe got stranded at third,
no one having the wallop to bring
him home, many wept. Isaiah Reese,
foreman of Round House No. 2, is
said to have swallowed the butt of
his ten-cent cigar in the agony.
Buck Ramsey, too, had a tough
deal, being forced at third where he
was placidly waiting to trot home
when an ambitious runner ttchind
tried to occupy the sack. About half
the West End team concentrated on
running down the unfortunate Ram
sey. During the game s9l was col
lected for Hippensteel, regular
catcher for Motive Power, now in
the Harrisburg Hospital, recovering
from an operation for appendic'tis.
