race against pursuing black slaves that
is tensely gripping and this is only one
thrill in one ot six great episodes. This
$1,000,000 feature will be shown at the
Boyd theater today, twice daily for
eleven days.
Of the dramatic notables who have
been seen at the Orpheum none to
appear there this season has been so
prominently identified with the Ameri
can stage as Nat C. Goodwin, who
will be the stellar attraction of the
bill opening today. Two of his most
notable successes were "When We
Were 21" and "The Gilded Fool."
Other plays which helped to win for
him his distinguished place as a co
median were "The Cdkyboy and the
f-ady" and "The American Citizen."
Dramatic recitations will be a fea
ture, of his vaudeville offering. He
will also recount reminiscences and
relate humorous stories. Roger Irn

most' important that I
have made to the people
of this city and vicinity since I have
had charge of the Boyd here.
"By arrangements that I have just
made with William Elliott, F. Ray
Comstock and Morris Gest I have
been so fortunate as to arrange for a
return engagement in this city April
12-13-14 of 'Experience,' called by 4he
critics the most wonderful play in
America, and undoubtedly the greatest
success of -this generation, as it hat
broken all records wherever it has
been given and hat even played to
more people than such notable suc
cesses as 'Ben Hur' or 'The Old
Homestead.' 'Experience' comes
here with a very high-class organita
tion, as the New York-Boston. 'Ex
perience' company, with a cast of
eighty-two notable players, will be
seen in this city. The ladies of this
company have attracted much atten
tion and their beauty is said to have
given the stage a new standard of
radiant girlhood.
"In ten brilliant and spectacular
scenes 'Experience' tells of the adven
tures of Youth and the temptations
he meets when he goes out into the
big world in search of fame and for
tune. Mr. Hobart has made these
temptations' to be represented, by
beautiful girls, and the characters are
called by such names as Youth,
Wealth, Beauty, Fashion, Passion,
Intoxication, Love, Hope and so on
for the various vices and virtues.
"While the people In the play are
called by these allegorical names,
'Experience' is a play of today, and a
vital flesh and blood drama. Its
characters, I can assure you, are the
people we meet in everyday life, and
from newspaper criticisms I have
seen I think we can all see ourselves
in 'Experience.' I believe 'Experi
ence' the biggest theatrical produc
tion that has been here in over ten
years and I am confident no show as
big as 'Experience' wilt He here in the
next ten years."

How many times we read that in
spiring story of Lew Wallace which
features the bodily and soul triumphs,
dangers and defeats of young Ben
Hur in his efforts to follow his guid
ing star, the ideals of early Christian
ity. In William Fox's picture beau
tiful, "A Daughter of the Gods,"
Anita, called "the Lovely," battles,
suffers, endures and finally loses her
life establishing her divine right-of-way
through the evils which beset
the children of earth. . And in losing
her life, through the purest, holiest
love, she finds it again in three incar
nations on the screen and on and on
indefinitely, just as Ben-Hur must
have done after he was lost to view
