Succession of Thrills.
SUNSET'S PLOT WESTERN
Tolstoi -Film at Majestic, "Cora" at
National, "The Waif" Jads at
Heilig, Peoples Play "Betty in
Search of Thrills," Xovelty.
Inspirational and intensely dramatic
is George Kleine's presentation of the
famous story "Quo Vadis," which began
a week's engagement at the Omheum
Theater yesterday. A book of strong
interest, a play of tremendous drawing
power, it has now been converted into
a stupendous photo-drama. Nothing so
spectacular since "Cabiria" has been
seen here. It is given in three acts ana
eight separate parts, produced by an
Italian company of artists.
The portrayal of the various big his
torical roles, Nero, the wicked Emperor,
and last of the Caesars, is made piti
lessly cruel and inordinately vain by
the technique of Mons G. Cattaneo, an
artist whose work in the film world is
famous. Peter, the Apostle, is played
with a note of dominant spiritual
strength by J. Gizzi.
Two excellent actors portrayed the
two friends, Petroneus, Nero's favorite,

beautifully presented by a young ana
talented emotional actress. Mil
Thrilling and sensational are the
scenes reproduced of the burning and
sacking of Rome, most exciting and
spectacular are the banquet scenes, the
orgies of Nero.
" The series of spectacles in which the
martyrs are made to suffer at the hands
of Nero are realistically terrible.
MILITARY FILM IS AT STAR
"Court-Martial" Is Story of Fear,
Remorse, Love and Bravery.
'Remember you are the son of a
soldier," said the mother, and how the
son proved himself such, makes a
masterpiece of "Court-Martial." which

military play Hobart Henley. Allen

strong parts. Jules, the wayward son,

bling debts. His innocent rival, for
the .hand of Marie, is sentenced tt

confesses to his ' mother, and, finding
his latent manhood, he forgets his per
sonal fear and gives himself up.
The scene, which shows the son torn
from the pleading mother's arms, and
the father forced to condemn his own
child, the depths of love and emotion
displayed, make this four-reel war
drama one of human interest.
"The Witch of Salem Town," with
the popular Mary Fuller and Matt
Moore starring, and a beautiful love
story, mingled with the thrilling scenes
of "witch burning," is an exceptional
two-part film. A clean, humorous
comedy completes the bill. After long

TOLSTOI FLAY AT MAJESTIC
Filmed Version 'of "Resurrection"
Is Pathetic and Charming.
Most impressive and pathetic is Tol
stoi's "Resurrection" with Bettv Nan-
sen as Jvatnusna Maslova, W llliam Kelly
as Prince Dimitri and Edward Jose as
Simonson. The photaplay version at the
Majestic is everything that could be
desired. Katusha. the pretty little ward
of Dimitri's aunt, falls in love with
the Prince. Having no alternative, she
attempts to lose herself in - the city.
Later, unjustly accused of a murder,
she is convicted by- a. jury of which
Dimitri is a member. Realizing that
he was the cause of her downfall, he
sets about to affect her spiritual res
urrection. The death scene of Katusha
is particularly impressive and pathetic.
The march to Siberia across the
austere snowy desert is full of pathos
and beauty. A cute children's comedy,
"The Rivals," is truly amusing,-and the
flights of the late Lincoln Beechy, and
the scenes of the San Francisco Ex
position grounds - are interesting.
WESTERN STORY IS THRILLING
Sunset Offers "The Conversion of
Frosty Blake" as Leader.
William S. Hart, in another of the
Western roles he has made famous,
heads the new blended programme
opening yesterday at the Sunset thea

red-blooded plot. He has an especially
good supporting cast in Louise Glaum
and Charles Ray.
Walter Edwards, Clara Williams,
Barney Sherry and Frank Borzage ap
pear in "The Scales of Justice," an
other two-act drama of exceptional
merit. The story has to do with a hu

"Fatty" Arbuckle of Keystone com
edy fame, as "Miss Arbuckle." con

The owners of $40,000 of the pre
ferred stock of my company want
their money. I have been trying to
place it elsewhere, but no one seems
willing to invest in a prosperous,
though not the very largest whole
sale and retail piano business. I
have, always been on a strictly cash
basis. I cannot borrow the money
now to pay off this $40,000, so I must
take the money out of my business.
By selling out a large portion of
stock on hand and doing it quickly,
I know I can win out. I know that a
big sacrifice is necessary to induce
piano buying now, but I am willing
to make the sacrifice. - I'll make
extraordinary concessions for cash
less than cost and for anyone buy
ing on time will charge only a very
little extra. ,
I have better pianos, grade for
grade, than any other piano house in
the city, because I personally select
my stock. Let no one say that such
and such an instrument is better, or
more valuable than anything in my
house. It is not true.
I have Sohmers and Behning
grands and uprights and player
pianos. No concern in America makes
anything finer. I will take .$143 for
some of my brand new pianos. This
is $10 less than the cash cost at fac
tory. For $155 I will sell them on time,
say $15 down and $7 a month.
