Maude Adams who is to be seen in
Jarrie's comedy, "Quality Street," at
h# Majestic next Friday evening, was
nvited to appear before the .faculty
ind student body of the University of
ndiana last fall. Great preparations
rere made by the University people to
lake the visit of the actress a notable
vent. It was decided to add a stage
o the igymnasium building and elabo
ate plains were dra'wn for it. As a
recautionary measure and to insure
avinlg things as Miss Adams would
«ke them the management of the
ompany was asked if there were any
hings in particular that were to be
istalled on the new stage. The word
hat came in reply was that a certain
eight for the hanging scenery would

'ould have to be in position when the
ompany reached the city. This could
ot be understood so'a telegram fol
ded asking if there was not some
jenery and properties required.
"No," came 'back word, "we carry
nr own footlights and strip lights and
ave everything necessary. Give us a
are stage." And that is all that Miss
dams' company requires of any the
tre. The organization is ' without

if—every little detail will be observed
when Miss Adams comes forward in
"Quality Street." The settings, the
furniture and everything used in the
play is in keeping with the period in
which the sentimental story of Phoebe
Throssell's love affair is laid. The visit
of the actress in this, play is being
awaited with considerable pleasure.
At the Orpheum
Two of the cleverest girlies that
have been seen at the Orpheum for a
long time, even recalling the Courtney
Sisters and the Farber Girls, are Irene
and Bobbie Smith, appearing on the
curreut show at the Orpheum. In fai't
it is only fair to say that the Smith
Sisters win a more solid hit than did
either of these other two clever girl
teams. One of the ISmith sisters is of
the dainty typo and aside from look
ing very winsome is a clever pianist
and the possessor of an unusual voice.
One of her best hits is her rendition of
"Virginia Lee," which she sings in
exquisite voice and fetching Colonial
costume. But the other sister is a dy
namo of personality. She just radiates
vim and good cheer, and with it all she
is indeed comical. The interesting fea
ture about her eomedv ability is that
she at no time becomes coarse or vul
gar, but her fun seems to be only an
outburst of youth and mischief. The
gowns worn by the girls are indeed in
teresting and at each performance they
are walking away with tumultous ap
plause. The Smith sisters offer one of
the very interesting Keith hits sup
porting Lou Anger and Sophye Barn
ard and company in their gigantic
musical comedy called "Safety First."
The Orpheum bill is brim full of gen
uine talent and is pleasing the most
At the Colonial
If you would cure the "blues," you
must consult "The Sonig Doctors," the
rolicking and very clever musical
comedy of that title that is enjoying
prosperity at the Busy Corner. Pretty
girls, clever comedians dance and
frolic through twenty minutes of en
tertainment that hasn't been surpassed
at the Colonial. Another very clever
feature of this bill is served up by
Silver and Duval, who present a clever
comedy and singing turn. Mosconi
Brothers, excellent dancers, aihl Jack
Polk, the popular monologist, complete
a very entertaining bill. Interesting
motion pictures are also included in
the performamce.—Adv.*
/ At the Regent
To-day the Regent theatre will have
one of the film plays which is tihe talk
of the United States. Wilton Lackaye
will appear in Israel Zangwill's master-
piece, "Children of the Ghetto." The
story is woven about the life of Rabbi
Samuel Jacobs, a sternly religious old
patriarch, who insists that the customs
of his forefathers shall be observed by
his son and daughter. The llrst blow
falls when his sou becomes an actor.
His daughter then marries a man for
bidden to her, according to rabbinical
law. Then his wife dies and he is left
alone. But lift*, cannot be all bitter
ness. His daughter, now a widow,
with her two children, returns to his
home and he finds peace and happiness.
To-morrow, Saturday, Low Pields, in j

Enthusiastic Audience at the Victoria

music rendered during the presentation
of moving pictures by Professors Mal

tion pictures in n theatre wherein ev
ery action of the picture is given its
proper tone expression is one of tho
modern wonders. For example, if an
automobile is seen approaching one
hears the honk, honk of the ihoru, when
one sees birds just that same instant
one hears their twittering correctly
duplicated by this wonderful musical
instrument, or if horses are shown one
instantly hears their tap, tap, as though
they were directly in front of tihe thea

which in appropriately termed the pipe
organ with tho human voice, add to tlie
life and realism of the silent plays as
presented at the Victoria only. Adv.*

An Impression of Gorky
"Once when I was singing in Nijni
early in the "morning," said Chaliapine,
Russia's greatest singer, "1 looked out
and saw Gorky standing at a window
in tile same hotel, and gazing silently
over the city. The sun was shining on
the towers of the churches, over the
silver river an ! turning the roofs red.
'You are up early,' I said. 'Yes,' he
answered, 'Come in ray rooms for a
moment.' When 1 reached his window
1 saw that he had tears in his eyes,
and 1 did not understand. "Look,' he
said to me, 'how beautiful it is. Just
the world and not a human being any
where. The humanity-which has majde
its gods and its. laws, built its houses
and its churches, nil asleep and help
less as children, powerless to change
or adjust all this that it has made.'
"He spoke very softly and very
sweetly, and, for the moment, he seem
ed to me the most perfect human be
ing in tho world. Truly one of Rus
sia's "flowers of genius. —Craftsmen.

the new American gun may be gather
ed from the fact that each of the

ships, each weigh more than Bi2 tons.
The 14-inch rifles of the battleships

each, and it is certain that the new

tons, without its mounting.

Try This If You
Have Dandruff j
There is one sure way that never fails
to remove dandruff completely and that
is to dissolve it. This destroys it en
tirely. To do this, just get about four
ounces of plain, ordinary liquid arvon;
apply it at night when retiring; use
enough to moisten the seal]) and rub it
in gently with the finger tips.
By morning most, if not all, of your
dandruff will be gone, and three or
four more applications will completely
dissolve and entirely destroy every
single sign and trace of it, no matter
how much dandruff you may havfe.
You will find, too, thqft" all itching
and digging of the scalp will stop in
stantly and your hair will be fluffy,
lustrous, glossy, silky and soft and look
and feel a hundred times better.
You can get liquid arvon at any drug
store. It is inexpensive, and' four
ounces is all you will need. This simple
remedy has never been known to fail.
