"Thinkers" Are Lauded. "Mentally
speaking, it is the people who
think deeply who are saved and
are the saviors of others," declared Dr.
Samuel Hawkins, pastor of the Central
Christian Church, In his sermon yester
day morning on "Dwell in the Depths."
"Now. it- is possible to dwell in the
depths mentally, and it is a glorious
thing to dwell in the depths of thought,
for he who thinks deeply also lives
deeply," declared the speaker. "When
wisdom has vanished, when we have
no longer any wise statesmen,
ministers, teachers and philosophers,
folly and frivolity unrestrained will
reign in all their weakness and way
wardness. And if any are left who
have enough wisdom to profit by the
prophets' warning, let them flee to the
caves and secret places, and the deeper
these are the better for those who
would escape the destruction that is
certain to follow."
Programme Is Attractive. An un
usually attractive pamphlet programme
has been arranged for the thirteenth.
semi-annual reunion of the Ancient and
Accepted Order of Scottish Rite Masons,
which will be held at their cathedral
in Portland Thursday, Friday and
Saturday, June 4-6 Inclusive. A 25-page
booklet Dound In colors, includes not
only the programme for the coming
reunion, but illustrations and a tabu
lation of the officer rolls covering the
National as well as local councils.
New Photo Plays Open . j
A VIVID, appealing picture-play in
four parts, "Classmates," is head
lining the bilr at the Majesfic The
action of this play is as good as any
which Klaw & Krlanger has produced.
Miss Blanche Sweet, one of the pret-tiest-of
young photo-play stars, takes
the leading part.
Part of the scenes are laid in the
forest. Great boa constrictors and alli
gators are shown crawling about, and
tropical birds can almost be heard
screeching from their high perches.
The plot of the story is closely
woven and intensely interesting. 4
Miss Mary Fuller in the "Dollie of
the Dailies" series is better than ever.
In her capacity of' star reporter of
the Comet she sees a wedding, crawls
up a coal chute and receives a pro
posal. But she gets her story. Miss
Ksther Lundauist. the charminsr little
violinist, and Miss Betty Anderson, the
pretty prima donna, add to tho at
tractiveness of the programme.

Walter Scott's novel, 'Heart ff Midlo

Players and is an exceptionally fine
picture. - . -
The screen story is a powerful one.
It opens up well. In the first 200 or
300 feet you feel it will be a go. At
the end of the first reel you are sure
of it. The interest Is steadily main
tained and it is heightened many times
by strong situations. These include
the escape from prison and the assault
on the jail. The scenes of the trial are

four days, and on Thursday an entire

WITH Courtenay Foote, Irene Hunt
and Miriam Cooper in the leading
roles, "Golden Droas," a two-part spe
cial Reliance release, is the star attrac
tion a,t the Columbia. It is a heart in
terest play, with a wholesome moral.
There is some splendid character por
trayal and the entire production has
beautiful photography. The story con
cerns an artist wh falls, but redeems
"Our Mutual Girl" made her first
Sunday appearance and pleased every
body with her clever offering. She
visits Blackwell's Island, and secures
the release of the little street musician

old sweetheart 1n secret, attends a per
formance of "Sari," in which Mizzi
Hajos is starring, and meets with a
number of highly exciting experiences.

Same bill until Wednesday.
(( y MILLION BID" is making a re
turn showing at the Globe
Theater, Eleventh and Washington.
This great- picture played to capacity
houses when shown before. It is in
reality the best production yet turned
out by the Vitagraph Company, mag
nificent in conception, dramatic in ac
tion, artistic in treatment and scenes.
The Hearst-Selig Weekly Is replete
with interest. The launching of the
"cup defender" and the raising of the
mast thereon, the "Lassies Fire Com
pany" in action and the Mexican news
are the most prominent.
A reel of special interest is "The Reed
College Campus Dances," participated
in by students and city societies. The
photography is excellent. Some of the
items are the shepherdess dance and
march. Highland fling, Bohemian na
tional dance. May pole dance, apple
blossoms by the "juniors." Russian but
terflies, fancy dances by the Portland
Turn Verein and acrobatic stunts by
the same. Same bill until Wednesday.
A RATTLING good show is being of
fered at the Star theater. "Lucille
Love," who has been taken aboard a
smuggling yacht, spurns the captain
and causes mutiny on board by threat
ening to shoot him. "
As a war vessel is about to overtake
them, the mutinous . sailors decide to
obey the captain and Lucille Is thrown
overboard.- She is picked up by a row
boat. John Bunny and Flora Finch, that
inimitable duo, are appearing . in
"Bunny's Swell Affair." That sounds
like the result of a toothache, but it
isn't. It is the result of a shower on &
"The Coward and the Man" Is a
strong play of human power and weak
ness. AnotheT drama of merit . is "Her
Mother's Weakness." The mother could
not resist petty theft, so she left her
daughter, who was about to marry, and
went away to overcome her weakness.

never gets out of the alluring wicked
ness of the role, despite he fact that
the vampire woman. ls not a role cal
culated to attract, and it must be
heartbreaking for a stock actress to
open a return engagement in a part
so thoroughly detestable.

Thomas II. Walsh is the friend of
the fool and the fool's family.
Theme Taken from Kipling's Paem.
Porter Emerson Browne wrote the
play. Its theme was suggested by the
poem of Rudyard Kipling.
The author has used the thought ex
pressed in' Kipling's poem most tell
ingly. Dramatic climaxes tread close
on the heels of oltier dramatic climaxes.
The fool, one Schuyler, big of name,
wealthy, cultured, departing; on a
business trip to Europe, meets at the
dock the beautiful vampire. He forgets
his wife and baby, home ties, business
and ambitions for her. A crazed youth
has just committted suicide at her
feet, because she has tossed him aside,
but the new fool does not mind.
The development of the play, is really
the development of the vampire's hold
upon the man. He seizes upon drink
to drown memories and one by one his
friends leave him. His wife, however,
tries loyally, to save him and his good
friend, Tom, sticks by him.

the lure" of her is still strong and when
she tempts him too far he struggles
to kill her and falls dead at her feet

There isn't "any moral in the storv
and it is most repellant in places. No
sympathy is brought out for the evil
doers. When the fool dies there is
pity, notunmixed with relief.
Mr. woodruff and Miss Fleming have
two tremendously dramatic scenes.
This may be said to be the dramatic
triumph of a season for Kdward Wood
ruff. His picture of the drink-crazed,
nerve-racked, remorseful fool is hid
eously real. Miss Fleming wore three
handsome gowns, each in psychological
keeping with the vampire type she
played. She drenched the role with
a snakelike fascination.
Walter Gilbert made a brief but
noteworthy appearance as the youth
who ends his life.
