Paul Scbwaser .Marguerite Abbott Adrian Morgan BY LEONE CASS BAER. Those of us who read with affec tionate interest John Fox Junior's novel, "The Trail of the Lonesome Pine." and found their hearts steeped to the brimful measure with sunshine and gentle sadness, as they went with June along the rough trail to the lonely, gaunt old pine that stood sentinel at the entrance to Lonesome Cove, were lost again in joyous bewilderment when once more they struck the trail hewed out for them by Eugene Walters, In his dramatized form of the book, which came to the Heilig last night for a four nights' run. Last season Eugene Walters pre sented the beautiful and talented Mrs. Walters, who is Charlotte Walker, in the role of June for a tour of this Coast, following the play's New York presentation. At the same time he sent another company touring through the Middle States, down into that part of the South not Included in Miss Wal ker's tour, and at its head he placed a young and lovely girl, Isabelie Lowe. This year, while Miss Walker tries out a new play of her husband's making, the responsibility for the success' of June Is left entirely to little Miss Lowe. And a right good accounting, or to quote her line in the play, "a right smart showin'," she makes of the difficult role. Best in Story Culled for Play. It is easy to sit calmly down and read with our own good or bad inter pretation the written lines of an au thor. John Fox makes his characters human and the lines he gives his peo ple of the Virginian mountains are simple and rugged, but beautiful in the quaint philosophy they breathe. Eugene Walter has culled the best lines, the bravest characters, the most thrilling bits from the story and woven them into a beautiful play. We are in troduced to June, and to John Hale, who means so much in her poor little life, at the very rise of the curtain. They meet in the shadow of the whispering tall old pine. Nature's motif of a for est melody, a thought that slips gently inrougn me play in vibration respon sive to its pretty story. Barefooted, untutored saved in the lore of the birds and flowers of her woodland home, June foreshadows the great miracle of the dawn of love and womanltood and her unconscious wooing of Jack sweeps onward with the fresh ness of a breeze from one of June's own lovely blue mountains. Fend Mixes In Story. Keud and the battle of brother against brother mix into the romance, and told in its play form, this part of the story affords a truer interpreta tion of the primitlveness of the folk 6f the Virginia hills than one could possibly conjure from the story on the printed page. Isabelie Lowe invests the role of June with a rare deep sympathy and a youth that adds much to the romantic element. John Davidson, quiet in his methods but purposeful, is John Hale. Jack Pendle ton, a Los Angeles actor, gives a highly natural portrayal of the part of Bob Berkeley. John Kennie, as Uncle Billy, who couldn't think without scratching his sparse locks, and Eva Benton as his wife, Ole Hun, afforded comedy, as does also marguerite Abbott, in the role of Loretty, and Paul Schwager, as Dave, two primitive mountaineers whose "bantering" is delightful. Noah Beery, as Judd Tolliver, and Adrian Morgan, as Cal Heaton, both big roles, play capably with attention par ticularly to the difficult vernacular of the types.. "The Trail of the Lonesome Pine" strikes a Joyous note of coloring in its Impressive scenic embellishment, and author and artist have charmingly in terwoven their conception of action and scene. The play ends Wednesday night. There will be a matinee that day. DEFENDANT IS SCARED OUT POPULAR BARITONE WHO IS APPEARING AT SUNSET TTTRATER. ' , s i - J" t:'- i -.

King Baggot, one of the best-known portrayers of character, appears in "The Man Who Was Misunderstood," the half pathetic story of an old man robbed of hi3 happiness in youth who tells his story to a child.

BARITONE IS AT SUNSET Matt Dennis, Popular Singer, Wins Great Applause. The most pleasing feature of the show at the Sunset Theater is the bari tone singing of Matt Dennis.

They sold newspapers along the route of travel to earn their living and to pay for repairs to the much-overworked and creaking automobile. Finally, as their pocketbooks had become almost empty, the automobile became more balky. At Seattle the negotiator of the trails made its final grunt and ex perts pronounced It "dead" so far as further use was concerned. The youthful trail-blazers left the automobile "cemetery" with heavy hearts. The attention of one of them was attracted to a new seven-passenger automobile standing on Cherry street, in the Sound city. "Ain't that a fine machine," admir ingly spoke one. "Gee, I wish we owned it, then we could finish this trip and win that S10.000 wager," Bald the other. It is useless to dwell further on the dialogue at that time, but the ultimate result was that Leitx and Richards drove out of Seattle In a seven-passen ger automobile alleged to be owned by A. R. Chambers, 901 Hoge building, Seattle. When the boys arrived in Portland yesterday they were accosted by De tectives LaSalle and Abbott. Visions of the $10,000 disappeared on the gray walls of a lonesome cell In the Munici pal Jail, where the two travelers were locked up yesterday to await an officer trom seatue. WOMAN'S DAY PLANS UP GATHERING AT WELFARE EXHIBIT OUTLINES FAIR PROGRAMME. LYRIC COMEDY MAKES HIT Home Talent Chorus Provides Screen for Funny Production. The home-talent kid chorus of the Lyric, every smiling one of 'em tickled to death to be "on the stage," provides a dainty screen against which Manager Flood has projected one of the fun nlest, completest, wholesomest musical comedies that has rasped the ribs of a Portland audience in the proverbial many a day. "The Gasey Twins" is the title, and what was anticipated of a piece bear ing such a fun-promising caption was evidenced by a full house last night a house that rocked and roared with merriment as one absurd situation crowded another. There was little handclapping. Everyone was too busy laughing. An Irishman with a Hebrew wife, a Hebrew with an Irish wife, the two families living opposite each other on a goat-infeBted alley, provide the set ting in which the Casey twins unwind their destiny. Everybody is fooled at his or iier own game, and the well-worked-out plot explodes with a bang when a mock marriage of Nora, one of the twins, to the young tenor. Joe Hun ter. turns out to be the real thing. . fn i ..11.. T . ' real-thing "Irishman: Solly Carter, as .Lvi uonen, accompiisnea true drollity. I. M. Hasty, a censustaker, done by Gene Gorman; Madeline Rowe, as Mrs. Cohen, and Gwyneth Dorsey, as Mrs. Casey, all handle their characteriza tions with vim and sparkle. All the musical numbers are full of pleasing old-time melody, and Miss Rowe's sflo was a special favorite. - "The Casey Twins" will be continued through the week. "Stop, Thief a farce of rwlft ac tion, thoroughly refreshed capacity houses at the Baker Theater yesterday afternoon and last night. As Baker patrons of years' standing left the playhouse the words "best ever" drop ped from the lips of many. The plot, with all its by-plots, is hung around a fashionable wedding ceremony in the home of William Carr. The maid who is engaged to serve the bride is the pal of a crook she is to wed as soon as they make their last haul." Soon after the maid gets into the house a pigeon blood ruby ring. a valuable diamond sunburst, steel stocks and wedding presents by the yard disappear. Suspicion soon rests on all present. Goods Carefully Planted. ' It happened that William Carr was 1000 per cent absent minded, and that James Cluney. the bridegroom, once had an uncle who was a kleptomaniac By "planting" stolen articles on one or the other of these susceptible sub jects just as they were about to be discovered, Nell and later Jack Doogan, her partner thief, managed to convince both Absent-Minded Carr and Klepto maniac Cluney, and many of the wed ding attendants as well, that they were responsible for the wholesale thievery that was going on. The members of the Carr family tell the supposed detective where their valuables are stored so that he may take an Inventory and trace stolen articles. This Inventory Is turned over to Nell, who fills a steamer trunk and suit case with booty and has a taxi cab ready to make a grand getaway for their marriage and honeymoon. But the house is suddenly closed on a searching process. Following the arrest of the real thieves as Nell is about to get away in the taxicab with the entire haul. Jack Doogan bats down one of the police officers and covers the crowd with a revolver until he and Nell have escaped. The thieves slipped around a side way and come back to recover the booty while the officers tare down the street yelling, "Stop, thief! Love Mixed la Comedy. Being foiled at last. Nell and Jack assure Mr. Carr and Mr. Cluney that they are not weak characters in spite of their insistent confessions and play ing the "sympathy gag" to the limit and are allowed to go "scot free. As the final curtain falls, three lov ing pairs. the wedding principals, the crooks and Dr. Willoughby and Joan Carr, who had been successful in mak ing love while the plot" was progres3- inif. were married. Charles Halton, as William Carr, the absent minded innocent, was positive ly "killing," as he batted his eyes be hind an old-fashioned pair of glasses and scampered about the stage as he was being covered by eyes from every 'direction. Cora Belle Bonnie played Nell, the deceptive maid, so neatly and inof fensively that she seemed a heroine, and the audience liked every move she made. Her partner in crime. Jack Doogan, interpreted by Robert Gleck ler, was a clever impersonation of a fearless robber who had the experience to know how to solve every crisis as it came and the nerve to put his solu tion across without flinching. Harry L. Fraser was realistic as the trembling brodegroom who believed himself to be a kleptomaniac, and Wil liam, H. Powell, as Dr. Willoughby, his close friend, played true blue In trying to shield him from the numerous "guilty acts." Walter Gilbert, "the best detective In the State of Rhode Island," had get-up and presence that won giggles whenever he was on the stage. Mary Edgett Saker was stunning as Joan Carr, and coquettishly made love to Dr. Willoughby. Florence Roberts, as Mrs. Carr, the old lady who was always getting into trouble because of the loss of her ear trumpet, and every other member of the cast, were enjoy- ably adequate. $10,000 WINNING FADES DUETT OUT TO CAPTURE BIG WAGER REPOSE IN CELL.
