Exposures -BY KILOWATT- IT'S SURE queer, mighty queer. Here's the whole situation and you can figure it out for yourself: A few weeks ago II. M. Thomas, manager of tha Strand theater, advertised that he would have a "tin can" matinee for the kiddies' and each one that brought ten tin cans would bo admitted free. Everything was going lovely until the city refused to remove them and so the Idea was abandoned. But neverthe less there were several dozen brought to this movie emporium, and, having no other place to store them, he placed them In the basement. Now said manager Is fllvverlng hither and anon In a new flivver.

Te Ed was at a show the other evening' that had a great many war scenes and the person sitting In the seat next to him had a goodly portion of Adam's Black Jack In the cavity of his-cranium. Well, you know, every time a gun npit fire crack! crack! was the sound that popped tn close proximity to Ye Ed's left ear. Gee whiz; Talk ubout realism! Wowla.:. .,. . , . . Now that the ball season Is in strong ses sion,' the . Uulversal bail team which we spoke about a short time ago In this column, has really got a game on this morning with the team from Company A of the Nebraska National Guard. Are you going? We think wa would enjoy a nice little snoose better. "The Neglected Wife" Is sure. some title for the new Pathe serial which Is to be shown for the first time In Omaha at the Muse theater, We do not know of any wives that ars neglected more' than -those who are married to men engaged in the film business. You know when ordinary folks are amusing themselves someone has to be on hand to see that everything runs along nice and smooth, and we could think of any number i of reasons, but will leave It for your Imagination to figure out, .or, better still, ask any of the wives of men engaged In the motion picture business, . Yes, any of them. There Is quite " a' similarity between George. Walsh, who; appears- at the Sun theater this week in "The Book Agent;" and Harry Goldberg, chief keeper of the scrolls of the same theater. Walsh always wears a smile, and bo. does Harry. . Walsh ' is a book agent In the picture only, but Harry has It oh him, as he was' one In real life. Walsh Is athletic, but Goldberg Is too fat. And then Walsh Is popular, too. Me, Kilowatt, has one friend on earth at any rate. P. C. -Wreath, who, let It be known, is manager In these here parts for the efforts of one "Doug" Fairbanks of mucn lame, read said notice in last week's column regarding said Ed feeling neglected In not having received, a copy of 'Laugh and Live," so be up and mails us "Doug's" literary product, thereby saving us one iron man. Which only goes to prove that ad vertising does pay. ' Yes, we would bo very glad to tell you where to obtain this inti mate book by our - mutual favorite. A thought just enters our nut at this time. We wonder If he .Is related to the noted maker of scales. He sure do know how to scale walls. Doozent he 7 It Is with sincere regret that we make the announcement that Max Llnder's latest oomedy offering, "Max In a Taxi," may be the last he may make, as he te at present lying at the point of death In New Mexico with tuberculosis, caused by a bullet .wound received while In the trenches In Europe. Everything possible Is being done for his comfort and" recovery, but little hope Is held for him. He gls certainly one of the very few mirth dlspelters who can get his com edy"over" without resorting to make-up." and tn esse he. passes away It will certainly be a distinct loss to the screen. A Cirievous Error. In Louisville they tell a story ef a poli tician who always carried a 'special brand of cigars In bit pocltet while campaigning In the rural districts. ' On one occasion when two friends of this politician met one of them said: - 'Welt, old Banks Is ill In bed. I hear." "Yes," said the other, "I understand he smoked a cigar from the wrong pocket." lit;w York Times. LOT H RO P 'Today and Monday , PEGGY HYLAND . MARC McDERMOTT "BABETTE" itoo to anyone who can tea mehowtowin Vforfarthtf detail MISS ROLAND HAS IDEA ONJATRIMONTi Star of New Serial, "The Neglected Wife," Tells What Will Be Course of Action, "I may be a traitor of my stx tn saying it, but many neglected wive: deserve to be neglected," says Rutl: Roland, the star of Pathe's new serial "The Neglected Wife," which will b shown tirst in Omaha at the Mus theater. "I don't mean wives who fall slior! of accepted standards of morality either," she went on. "Many womer, who have fulfilled every obligation tc their husbands come to grief becaust they fail in their obligation to them, selves. I mean that theji neglect themselves and then their husband! neglect them. "They don't keep up their appear ances. They relax, physically and mentally. They are very sweet, very good but not very stimulating. And it is sad but true that waiting just around every corfier is someone who has had time and means and energy enough to make herself just as attrac tive aj she possibly can. "Women who have been models ot neatness and style before marriage be come dowdies afterward. Girls 1 It's a mistake! You may think that put ting a new ribbon on last year's bat will make a. hit with your husband be cause it saves money but it won't. He may think it will, too but along wilt come someone with a new hat and a new . ribbon or a new, fresh viewpoint upon life, or ideas that meet those of the husband who has gone forward while you have stood still, and disaster looms ahead." "You're not married, are you?", hazarded the interviewer. "No, but when I am," responded Miss Roland, "you may take it for granted that I shall keep right up to the minute. No 1've-caught-the-car-why-run-any-longer attitude for me." Dorothy Kelly Goes Through Flame to Register Scene In order to secure realism in "The' Money Mill," the Vitagraph Blue Rib bon featuie, which stars Dorothy Kelly, and is the attraction at the Empress tiieater, Director Robertson actually bljw up the location which he had made to resemble ?. mine. The story calls for fascinating "Dot" to rush into the blazing enclosure in order to rescue her father, and prepa rations were made for the scence to be filmed as written. 1 When tha camera started to grind and register the blazi, the signal was given by the director and "Dot" started to run towards the spot. A high wind, however, was causing the flames to muke a big headway and the director regretted his act the moment , he has given the word "Go," and called tp Miss Kelly not to attempt it. . Paying im heed to his warning be cause she realized that her failure to enter the structure would spoil the picture or cnuse the expense of erect ing another mine and a "retake," the little star kept right on. Two or three other playeis who were in the soene started to hold her back, but, using all her strength, she pushed them aside and did the scene as he bad rehearsed it. The camera man surmised her in tention and, therefore, did not stop cranking the machine, with the result that something of a thriller was se cured. 1 Miss Keliy escaped with s burned hand, which pained her severely for several days, much to the sorrow of the director and supporting company, although they were not in the least to blame. Eugene Walter Adds Another Scene to His "Easiest Way" Eugene Walter has furnished the key to a certain question which was frequently propounded when his drama, "The Easiest Way," was hav ing its long Broadway run. The screen production of this great play has been made with Clara Kimball Young as the star, for Selznick-Pictures, direct ed by Albert Capellani, and for this purpose Mr. Walter contributed his own version of the logical ending of the career of his heroine. In the play as produced by David Bclasco, Laura Murdock, an actress, is abandoned by a man whose influ ence and money she had accepted, be cause she did not "play the game," and also by the man she loves be cause in dire straits she took "the easiest way " to luxury and success. The last act closed with Laura hys terically calling to her maid: "Doll me up, Annie; I'm going down the line." When Director Capellani was malt ing the picture the numerous inquiries were recalled, and Mr. Walter was asked to add a final chapter to his story. He has done so and carried out the drama to its logical, tragic con clusion. It will be shown at the Strand theater for five days,, com mencing Tuesday.
