brief announcement concerning the

what a Tlddish praise agent tried to
tell me about his show, plus a gem or
two from the press matter. One of
the paragraphs says (I quote ver

comedy which has enjoyed long runs
in pew York, Boston and Chicago.1
David Miller, an English comedian,

Jane Cowl is to be here in about a
month making her first visit to Port
land. Two musical features radically dif
ferent hold the center of attention on
the new programme at Pantages,
commencing with tomorrow's matinee.
"The Footlight Review" Is a Willard
Jarvis production, studded with
clever people, pretty girls, bright lines
and good music, while the special
Teature is "The Heart of Annie Wood."
This is a vaudeville sensation, aptly
described as a musical half-tone, and
relates the story of the good and bad

soloist, formerly of the Chicago Opera
company, is another feature of the
TCLLEl' OFFERS SEW COMEDY
"Keep Her Smiling" to Be Present
ed at Heilig July 18.
New productions under the banner
of Richard Walton Tully have been
conspicuously absent for the past
year and for a good reason. During
this period Tully has been in London,
where his perenlally popular "The
Bird of Paradiue" has repeated under
his auspices its great American suc
cess. Not less than three companies
are now playing the piece there, the
numcer one company having been on
the London boards since last fall.

the Saturday Evening Post. For the
leading part of Henry Mr. Tully has
brought across the water one of Eng
land's most noted comedians, David
Miller, who it seems certain will
duplicate In this country his tremend
ous vogue In England. His latest suc
cess there was as Billy In "Fair and
Warmer," which he played for 14
months in the British metropolis.
His part in "Keep Her Smiling" is
said to be equally well suited to his
personality and clever methods.

By reason of a sudden change in

part of this week, beginning this

New Comedy of American Home Life, With Isabel Withers in Principal
Feminine Role, Comes to Heilig Theater Next Saturday for Week.
AVID MILLER English come-'
dian, whom Richard Walton
Tully is featuring In the new
comedy of American home life, "Keep
Her Smiling." has for 20 years been a
favorite with London audiences. Last
season he played as Billy in "Fair
and Warmer," where the play was
even a greater success than in the
United States. Just before that he
made a hit in a comedy called "His
Happy Home," which has not yet been
seen on this side of the Atlantic
Miller's first important character
izations were in the companies of
George Edwardes and he created
many leading character parts In such
popular plays as "The Runaway

Toreador," "The Geisha Girl," etc

HOUSE PETERS IS AT CIRCLE
'Silk Husbands and Calico Wives"
Is Based on Novel.
"Silk Husbands and Calico Wives,"
starring House Peters, which is to
be shown at the Circle theater today
and tomorrow, will be highly Inter
esting to local moving picture devo
tees for a number of reasons.
The picture is based on Monte M.
Katterjohn's popular novel of Amer
ican life, a thoroughly and Intensely
modern story dealing with ootn
country and city. No finer or truer
to life picture has ever appeared on
the screen it Is intensely aDsorDing
and timely with a beautiful love story
running through It. The story de
picts vividly the struggles of two
young people making their start in
life fresh from the country. They
are full of the enthusiasm of youth
and are thrilled In their call of the
great city, when the offer comes to
go to New York. What the tumult
of the metropolis makes of them, this
strong man and woman who. In the
midst of all their etruggles to es
tablish themselves have found ro
mance and a great love is the big,
human theme of "Silk Husbands and
Calico Wives." It Is -a story that
reaches down deep in the heart of
every human being, and starts folks
to talking and thinking.
Mr. House Peters, returns to the
screen after an absence of 18 months
on the farther side of the continent
where he appeared In American
made pictures. Mr. Peters has long
been an Idol of the film-loving pub
lic, and his virile, red-blooded type
of character portrayals, and his mag
nificent success in "The Girl of the
Golden West," and "The Great Divlde"
are etill regarded as among the very
best portrayals of screen history.
