country, and has never failed to arouse
the greatest Interest. His "wonderful

their investigations they have been
more than ever amazed. In his -work
he uses the greatest mechanical inven

a figure which was built under Mr.
Mitchell's direction, and when manip

servant into the belief that she is a
creature of flesh and blood. This mar
velous man is well worthy to lead the
great Lyric bill, and his appearance
here will go down in the history of
local vaudeville as a very Important
Others on the bill are Fairbanks and
Caine, the well-known singing and
dancing sketch artists; Gene King and
his wonderful trained dog; Casper and
Hayes, the clever comedians, in their
latest divertisement; John W. "Wood,
the talented ballad singer, in his new

acter, and his engagement with tho two
bad boys, which tho cartoonists have
made famous, will constitute the feature
of tho Star Theater's new programme
which opens on Monday afternoon, at 3

Another Instance of the undoubted ge
nius displayed by tho Star Theater In re
taining Its unrivaled hold on top place
in the vaudeville world Is shown by tho
engagement of Cole Frances Bowers,
known as tho girl with the beautiful
voice. The exquisite costumes of this
cantatrice and her wide repertoire and
her wonderful range of voice combine to
make her one of tho most striking op
eratlc singers on the stage.
Arlington and Clyde, two peppery sketch
artists, will churn tho minds of the spec
tators Into bubbles of merriment. As a
laugh-producer, their farce, entitled
"Brlc-a-Brac." is rarely equalled.
Tipple and Kllment will appear In a new
musical act, when melodies of all dc
scriptlon will run the gamut from tears
to gladness, and carry tho audience back
one minute to the Sunny South and next
time to the ragtime revels of later days.
Two comedy sketch artists have been se
lected In tho persons of Gale and "Wins-

the management as being up to the high
grade of entertaining qualities required
for this most popular vaudeville theater.
