Conspicuous among these brilliant
lights is Mr. Walter Denton, business
man, philosopher, social service, work
er, political reformer, nnd Actor. The
capital A in actor is not a typographi
cal error. It is set down (or up) de
liberately and with malice afore
thought. Mr. Denton modestly denies
that he is an exceptional actor, even
when be is delivering the most sur
prisingly exceptional histrionic goods.
But that is because he is by nature a
very modest man. As a matter of fact
this modesty is the only thing that dis-1
tinguisiies Mr. Denton" from a pmfes- j
eional actor. When it comes to iram-1
afie ability he can give the average j
matinee idol c.irds and spades and in j
the particular part he plays in "Thej
fortune Hunter" he can' give him
more tl.an that. He can give him the
ha ha. And he does. !
Now in private life as everyone j
knows, Mr. Denton's particular job isj
to see that, the Meyers' Department :
Store is properly run. That sort of n !
role requires a pretty keen nnd level- j
headed business man; ono who can'

proposes a scheme whereby he guarnii-'
tees that Nut cm become 'a millionaire!
in one year if he will follow instruc-i

who has a fortune. Nat is to pick out1
