MOTHER GISH 00T;
Enterprising Second-Story Man Tries
to Dig Down Family Sock,
But Is Prevented.
GISH GIRLS' FORTUNE IS SAVED
Twii a few bells after midnight
and Los Angeles slept. This state
ment includes the Oish family, com
posed of Lillian, Dorothy and their
doting mother. There wait nothing
doing in the Gish bungalow except a
considerable amount of sleeping.
Enter burglar, K. U, E,, or wher
ever the roof of the porch is, in the
domicile of the Gitthe s. With the cat
like tread favored by all burglars who
have had proper training, he eniered
the chamber of Mrs. (iish.
The burirlar. it is surmised, thouclit
the Gish family had either jrwels or
money. Just why he thought moth
er's room would be the repository for
such loot is not clear, but anyway he
must have thought that, or he
wouldn't have been there.
Anyway, what he did was to flash
a flashlight on the unsuspecting
countenance of Mrs. Gih. ' he first
flash didn't quite get over.
"Myl My! muttered the mother of
two pay envelopes, "these lightning
atornia certainly do come up sud
denly. Guess I'll put down the win
dow." She had hoisted herself up on one
elbow, when a hiss from the burglar
"Nud" was the burden of his hiss.
"Nix, ladyl Stay right where you
"My good man." replied Mrs. Gish,
"did you think I had any intention of
rising, after I discovered your pres
ence? The midnight visitor here commit
td a technical blunder of consider
able consequence. Without replying
to Mrs. Ginli'a query he removed hi
searchlight from her to sweep it
around the room.
"Where's yer dougbr he growled
Mrs. Gish reached one hand
quickly under her pillow.
"In that dresser she answered.
The burglar Jumped for the piece
of furniture indicated.
A bullet missed the marauder by a
bare four feet and plugged a picture
of Dorothy in the left dimple.
The burglar fled into the hall, and
lost hi way. Downstair he dajhed,
with mother in pursuit, blazing away
it every jump.
Dorothy and Lillian awoke.
"What' that, I wonder, sister
dear?" quoth Lillian,
"Search me," answered Dorothy.
"Sounds like somebody was making
i Keystone comedy in the front hall."
The sister bravely ventured forth,
after donning their most bewitching
kimonos, and peeped over mother'
shoulder while ahe fired her last shot
at a burglar disappearing over the
front lawn. Then Lillian telephoned
for the police. They came but, not
being of Mack Sennett' force, were
unable to do anything except ask
questions and clutter up the front
No blood stain were discovered,
so it is thought Mrs. Gish did not hit
"Iiut I brt she scared him!" said
None of the policemen would take
bill to patrons today

TT On Rpptombor 14th the Strand Thoator opeo-d it
jj doors to the picture-goon) of Omaha with a fixod
policy of presenting feature pictures with proper musi
Today the managnraent can point with pride to th
fact that not a single change in policy has boon
made funce that time.
iTfT .Ve originally started changing onr program every
JJ Sunday, Tneaday and Friday today we are doing
T Our first program rvmfdsted of a feature, together
jj with comedy and weekly or scenic. Today we nre
offering the very same program.
TT From the very outset we had a high clss symphony
jj orchestra, giving proper musical interpretation to
the pictures. Today our orchestra is even larger than
when we opened.
rr Onr first pipe organ, which pleased our patrons,
has been replaced by the sixth largest motion pic
ture pipe organ in the United States, but we have not
dispensed with onr orchestra on this account.
gT! Our admission prioea today are just the same as
j when we opened.
jrrr Absolutely the only difference between the Strand
today and the day we opened is THAT INSTKAD
O -' HEINO LOOKED UPON AS A .IOKE BY THE
CITIZENS OF OMAITA, AS IT WAS AT THAT
TIME, TODAY IT STANDS AS OMAHA'S FORE
MOST PICTURE THEATER, ANT) ONE OF THE
PI ACES OF INTEREST OF THE CITY.
MJ "Whereas when we came here, despite the very best
J of financial referents, we mn hardly get any
one to do business with ns-today, the very name of
STRAND in ' the Omaha business world means any
amount of credit we desire.
T Another pleasing thing to us is the fact that Strand
jj methods are daily copied by theater managers, not
only in Omaha, but in the surrounding territory na well,
which simply goes to show THAT WE STARTED THE
STRAND ON THE RIO HI1 FUNDAMENTAL PRIN
OIFLEfl, AND TODAY IT IS AN ACKNOWLEDGED
rrr Quit another factor that hnj) made the Strand suc
jl cessfnl in the efficient corps of employes who re
main identically the same, with one exception, and she's
still vitally interested, though in another capacity, as
when the theater opened. These persons have labored
hard to make the house get over, and we wish to pub
licly thank them for their hard and earnest effort.
ffT You'll hear one person compliment Strand projec
JJ tion, another Strand rrrasio, another Strand organ,
another Strand pictures, another the cozinees of the
theater, another th cleanlinosa, bnt yon will hear far
moro flattoring remarks about the theater than other
wise. gT We are here to stay to plea) yon year in and
il year out, and we wiah to pablioly thank you for
the kind manner in which yon have assisted u put the.
