EUGENE O'BRIEN in "The
Perfect Lover" at the Strand
theater is everything the name
of the play promises a perfect
lover. As a promising young artist
O'Brien wins the love of a newly
rich woman and soon his studio, fur
nished by her husband's money, be
comes the rendezvous place for love
lorn society women.
Changez la fortune. While noth
ing very serious has happened be
tween the artist and his model, who
is by far more interested in him
than his art. the husband finds his
protege in his wife's arms.
A scene of wild merriment fol
lows. When the artist is accused
by the father of one of his affinities
of using his so-called art as a cloak
to rob the honor of men and wom
en of high standing, he realizes the
miserable part he has been playing
in life and as a follower of the muse
of art. However, all ends well with
the artist happy with his wife, who
has just given birth to a future
A film, taken and donated by
Madeline Brandeis, showing the
work of the Omaha Visiting Nurses'
?ssociatioh, is one of the features of
the Strand's program. The film is
shown in the interest of the Tag
day of the Visiting Nurses' asso
ciation, which will be held on Sep
tember 10. An educational Pathe
film and Pathe'a Weekly, showing
many interesting scenes from near
and far, conclude tlje program.
To see a great motion picture pro
duction, and at the same time to see
and hear the living participants in
its making will be the unique privi
lege of the showgoing public at the
Brandeis theater all this week when
the California mermaids of the films,
Mack Sennett's bathing beauties,
will appear in person on the stage
simultaneously with the screen on
the comedy king's latest and biggest
production, "Yankee Doodle in Ber
lin." This dual entertainment was
first put on in San Francisco, where
it created such a furore that Mr.
Sennett was prevailed to permit a
brief tour of the girls to cover a
few of the leading cities.
William Farnum in "Wolves of the
Night." a strong melodramatic pic
ture, is showing at the Rialto. It
starts in America, and Farnum as a
young engineer, is ent to Chili. An
explosion takes place and he is
buried, but he escapes from the liv
ing tomb through an old airshaft
and is lost in the wilds. A girl runs
away from him, but he follows and
is taken in by her father. His mind
returns and he goes home to find

his wife married to one of the
wolves. The man commits suicide,
and he is seen with his wife in his

a picture bringing loud applause, but
this is the exception.
"Broken Commandments" is of
fered at the Moon, with Gladys
Brockwell in the lead, supported by
Spottiswood Aitken, Thomas San
tschi and William Scott. The girl
who is led by love to break com
mandments and is taught by sad
consequences to revere them, was
received with more than her usual
favor. The novel feature of throw

"The Thirteenth Chair," offered
at the Muse, is taken from one of
the dramatic successes. To tell the
plot would spoil your pleasure at
seeing this production, as it is a
mystery play. We have had Grif
fith, Ince, Tourniere, Capellani and
Tucker open our eyes to new ideas
and alrming pictures, but this di
rector, Leonce Perret, has made a
picture equal to any of these direc
tors of high positions in the screen
world. The Omaha Daily Bee Screen
Magazine will also be seen this com
ing week at the Muse.
"The Westerners," at the Sun, is
adapted from the novel by Stewart
Edward White, and it has made a
very good picture. An Iroquois In
dian is driven from the caravan of
a band .of pioneers for insulting one
of the women of the party. This
woman is the wife of a New Eng
land scientist bound for the Black
Hills to study the possibilities of
that country. He is too engrossed
in his work and does not look after
his wife, and then comes the day,
when the Indian comes back. The
scenes that follow are of the strong
est we have seen in pictures.
N AMERICAN ACE," this
eeks melodramatic head-
liner at the Oroheum, is
about the last word in vaudeville
military spectacles, and reminds us
of the "good old days," when Lin
coln J. Carters name occupied a
'prominent place on the billboards.
This act was adapted for vaudeville
by Taylor Granville, who has the
role of Lieut. Phil Drake, the hero
aviator of the playlet. The story
was taken from the play by Lin
coln J. Carter, and if the man who
worked out the adaptation missed
anything from the original produc
tion, it would be hard to guess
what it was.
The act yesterday went big with
two audiences. An interesting
story of love, interwoven with the
fortunes and misfortunes of war,
holds the interest from curtain to
curtain. The bombardments are
realistic and some of the scenes
have the merit of real dramatic
tenseness. The crash of a Hun
bomb into a room gives an idea of
what the real thing may have been.
The screech of the flying pigs
s heard and other effects are real
istically worked out. Laura Pier
pont, as Muriel Dandey, a French
maid, is pleasing, and Florence
Pinckney is capable as the woman
spy. There are 11 scenes and the
act runs nearly an hour. Seventeen
persons are in the cast in addition
The Hagans are pleasing in a
series of dance numb-ers. Lewis
Williams and Ada Mitchell offer
a neat domestic skit. Dave Fergu
son and company have an act in
which phases of life on Broadway
are depicted. Jack. Dunnam ana
Sammy Edwards make merry, one
of the team being as slender as a
bean pole and he" knows it. Her-
schel Henlere is a pianist-comedian
with personality and versatility.
The Three Jahns close the bill with
feats of equilibrium. "Topics of
the Day," and Kinograms complete
the new bill.
Hundreds ot people are coming
to town today to hear the presi
dent's discourse on the league of
nations, but if you desire to locate
those same hundreds this afternoon
or tonight, you'll find them enjoy
ing the fun, froth and pretty girls
at the Gayety. The program is
long and diversified. Matinee at
2:15 daily, all week.
Capps Family, a clever octette of
versatility, is earning much ap
plause at the Empress, and Arnold
and Taylor, in a comedy skit, bring
something new to the vaudeville
fans of Omaha. Frawley and West
present a uovel ring artist act and
amuse the public with their clever
stunts. Theda Bara in "Under Two
Flags," a William . Fox picture,
brought to Omaha by special ar
rangements with the Fox organiza
tion, is at her best and is ably as
sisted by a well selected cast,-including
Herbert Heyes, Stuart Holmes,
Stanhope Wheatcroft, Joseph Cre
han, Charles Craig and Claire Whit
ney. Marsh and Marsh to
on Evaporated Milk
Marsh and Marsh, wholesalers,
held an impromptu banquet at the
Loyal hotel Saturday noon, with the
entire sales force in attendance, for
the purpose of opening up the sales
campaign and drive on Oatman's
evaporated milk, for which Marsh and
Marsh are state distributers. Plans
were formulated to open the drive
with an extensive advertising cam
paign in the leading newspapers,
which will continue for a period of
Co-operation on the part of the
newspaper display men was assured
at the meeting, and much enthusi
asm was evinced in the great possi-
Dinties tor tnis product, which is
manufactured bv the Oatman Con
densed Milk company. The meeting
was a success from everv standoomt.
and the opening guns of the cam
paign will be fired today through ad
vertisements in daily papers.
Owing to the great shortage and
high price of milk in many localities,
there has been an increased demand
for products of this nature, and the
Oatman Condensed Milk company
feels that it is offering a meritorious
product which will assist materially
in filling this great demand.
Marsh and Marsh state they are
prepared to give excellent service to
state dealers and every possible ef
fort will be made through their
large corps of salesmen to perfect

My HEART and
Adele Garrison's New Phase of
of a Wife
What Miss Wines Said to Startle
Miss Wines and Miss Pratt dis
respectfully alluded to by their youn
ger colleagues as "Old Grouchy"
and "Miss Prim" came hurriedly
down the corridor to the office,
whispering in low hurried tones.
Always the first to arrive at
school, the last to leave, they pre
sent perfect types of drab, con
scientious drudges, who carry to
their work no real love or inspiraion.
That they did not expect to see us
was evident in the simultaneous, ex
plosive "Oh'sl" that left their lips.
"Good morning," Alice Holcombe
said gravely, while I merely in
clined my head. "Of course, you
have heard "
"Yes," Miss Pratt returned sol
emnly, while Miss Wines turned a
slow, speculative look upon me,
which made me tingle, for to my ex
cited imagination there seemed to
be a slv malice in her eyes. I re
membered the look she had given
me the day before when I had told
her that I expected Mr. Stockbridge
to come to the school, wondered ap
prehensively if she meant to speak
of it, was glad indeed to hear Bess
Dean's excited, high-pitched oice
from the doorway, and to see behind
her three or four other teachers, all
There Are Limits"
"Isn this perfectly awful, girls?"
she shrilled. "Poor, old Millyl She's
threatened to kill herself often
enough, but I never thought she'd
really do it." '
"What makes you think she's done
Miss Wines' voice was dry and
Bess Dean whirled on her.
"Look here, Wines'yl What are
vou trvinir to do. ioin the bunch of
6oneheads in this forsaken town that
are mixing in Kenny's name with his
Miss Wines' sallow face took on a
purplish tinge, but her voice did not
change from its annoying pitch.
"If I were in your place, Bess, I
would not let people hear me speak
so familiarly of your principal. Of
course, we know that his wife was
fearfully jealous of you, hut"
Bess Dean stepped so dose to
the older woman that their faces al
most touched: "Let me tell you
something, Wines-y," she said.
"There are limits to jokcs. and this
is one of them. And don't let me
ever hear that particular brand from
Miss Wines laughed disagreeably.
"I don't wonder you don't like it,"
she said slyly, "and, of course, I
think too much of you to repeat it.
For I can tell you all. whether you
believe in Mr. Stockbridge's inno
cence or not, there is going to be
an unpleasant investigation into this
thing, and it isn't going to be very
comfortable for any woman of
whom his wife was jealous."
Into Bess Dean's snapping eyes
flashed a look of fear. I guessed
that Miss Wrines's words had alarm
ed her, although she would have
died rather than admit it. But be
cause of her own vanity she had put
herself into a position where her
name might be coupled with that of
Kenneth Stockbridge, although I
was sure that in the old homely
phrase he had "never looked twice
in her direction." But I had myself
heard her say with a meaning smile
that Milly Stockbridge "has no use
for me, you know," and had ob
served several other indications
showing that she was willing to
have people believe herself the ob
ject of the jealous woman's dislike.
I caught her looking at me fur
