VICTORIA SPECIAL TO-DAY
The funniest Keystone comedy ever
offered in Harrisburg, featuring Mabel
and Fatty in bathing suits, is "The Sea
Nymphs," a ripping two-reeler, which
heads an excellent bill of above the
average photoplays ait t'he Victoria the
atre, 223 Market street, to-day only.
Fatty, with wife, mother-in-law and
implements in the shape of numerous
boxes, bags and bundles, goes for an
outing at Santa Catalina Island. On
the steamer he is badly smitten. Mabel
is traveling with tlie parental neces
sity—a very significant-looking little
father with side whiskers. Fatty un
aware of the relationship interferes
with the old duck flirting with the
young chickens and pitches him over
board. The whole party then goes
swimming and Fatty and (Maibe! give
a diving exhibition and the thrilling
program concludes with Fatty getting
j liis and Maibel is dragged unceremoni
j ously off by her enraged parent.
Equally full of thrills is "Lieut.
| Daring and the International Jewel
I Thieves, a three-reel special, which
i also is at the Victoria to-day. Exciting
| adventures, plots and counter-plots in
j terming led with daring esca.pes com-
prise every inch of the film.
Another Keystone comedy, which is
full of fun, is "The Wild and Wooily
West," in one reel and "The Path'e
