OF ALL clown acts, the one
most unusual ever to be done
on the Orpheum stage is pre
sented this week by the Briants.
The suoposed dummy resembles a
lax bundle of old clothes, seemingly
quite inanimate. He astonishes the
audience with the fact of his being
a live person. This is hut a minor
phase of the current bill at the Or

Foy and the younger Foys in their
new vehicle called "Slumwhere in
New York." The - Foy family is
more amusing this time than ever
A matinee will be played at the
Boyd this afternoon, when "The
Confession of a War Bride" will
again be presented by the company
now there. This interesting story
is attracting a great deal of atten
tion on account of its quality and
the manner in which it is played.
It remains all week.
Capacity houses greet the clean
est, classiest bill presented at the
Empress this season. It has as the
headliner "iMiss 1920," a Revue of
the Times, a musical comedy, elab
orately staged and costumed. Sims
Si Warfield, song writers, also in
troduce their own song successes,
"I Ain't Got Nobody," "Brown
Skin," and others.
An empty ticket rack after each
performance continues to be the
condition of affairs in the box office
of the Gayety, where magnetic Mol
lie Williams, the only and logical
successor to Anna Held, is playing
twice a day to all the people the
theater will hold. Her serio-comic
playlet, "The Queen of Hearts," in
which she impersonates a Spanish
"vamp," is a decided novelty in mu
sical burlesque and affords the little
lady great dramatic scope. Ladies'
matinee daily at 2:15.

Wheat Embargo , Laid
Because of Stores Here
On account of the grain elevators
of the Omaha terminals having been
filled to capacity, or nearly so, an
embargo has been laidQn the ship
ment of wheat to this market. At
this time the government has
around 5,000,000 bushels in storage
here, and this added to the quantity
held by local concerns and outside
customers, practically exhausts the
10,000,000 bushel space.
It is expected however, that the
situation will be relieved within a
few days and that Omaha will be
open for the shipment of wheat
from all points.

KITTY GORDON in "Adelc"
will be the offering at the
Muse for today and the rest
of this week in a story of a girl from
Louisiana who becomes a Red Cross
nurse in France. The part played
by Miss Gordon is a fascinating one
and one that calls upon the best she
has to offer in histrionic ability in
order to make of the play a really
great piece of screen work. It is the
first play that Miss Gordon has made
under the banner of the United Pic
ture Theaters and in it she has done
herself full justice, for the fine record
she has made on the screen is fully
upheld. Althgugh, built with the

Theda Bara in "The Light" at
the Sun today and the remainder of
this week portrays the life of "the
wickedest woman in Paris" who at
the time that everyone else is sacri

life of riotous revelry. And at the
call of a sculptor who has been
blinded when just at the height of
his power she gives. up her life of
ease and plenty and goes to live with
him to care for him. And through
the haze of all her wicked deeds
there shines to her the light of a
better and purer life", a life of sacri
fice for the blind sculptor. Miss Bara
is at her best in such an emotional
role as is called for in "The Light,"
and has built into the play her own
skillful interpretation f -the part of
