All Non-Catholics Invited to
Hear Exposition of Doc
trine of Catholic
Rev. Bcrtrtnd L. Conway and Rev,
John E. Burke of the Paulist Fa
ther of New York will eive free
lectures fof non-Catholics in St. Ce
cilia cathedral, Fortieth and' Burt
streets, dunne a two-week mission
tartine- Sundav. Tanuary 25.
All non-Catholics are invited to
The purpose of the lectures is to
explain the doctrine of the Catholic
church "to all who seek the truth
and to answer in a kindly manner
all their 'dflficulties."
A question box will be placed at
the cathedral door, and questions
placed in the box one evening will
be answered the following evening.
Not a Challenge. .
"To some non-Catholics," said Fa
ther Conway last night, "it may seem
that the Paulist Fathers are issuing
a challenge rather than an invita
tion. On the contrary, we deplore
any attempt to stir up animosity be
tween members of different churches.
We propose to set forth systemati
cally an exposure ana aerense ot
Catholic teaching. All Catholics
know that there are thousands of
fair-minded, intelligent non-Catholics
who are anxious to hear some
thing about the Catholic faith from
those who are her accredited repre
sentatives." i Order of the Lectures.
The following program has been
mapped out for the two weeks' re

1 1. LI AM FARNUM scores an
other success in "The Last ol

finally wins him a pardon and happiness.
Strand The big double bill on the
screen at the Mrand theater is
crowding this house to its capacity,
and why not. Fatty Arbuckie in
"The Garage" keeps one in a de-
iightful humor throughout its scteen-
ing. and Jack Pickford in "'In
Wrong," keeps the house in an up
roar. Either of these two comedians
make suffcient entertainment for an
evening, but when you are privileged
to see the two ot them on the same
screen in one "night, you can rest
assured of having one big night of
Sun A trip to the snow-covered
heights of the Tyrolean Alps awaits
the movie fan at the Sun theater,
where "Blind Husbands" is being
shown this week. I he story deals
with a famous American surgeon
and his beautiful wife. Professional
cares make the scientist preoccupied
and apparently indifferent to his
wife s heart happiness.

have been secured in the Paramount
Artcraft picture, "Everywoman,"

Everywoman makes her debut, a
chorus of extremely pretty girls in
unique costumes was employed. The
stage was literally covered with real
flowers, which gives an idea of the
extravagant scale upon which the
spectacle was filmed.
Muse Tom Mix, the inimitable, is
to be here again with new thrills, ad
ventures, fun and romance in "The
Speed Maniac." It opens a two
day run at the Muse today. "The
Speed Maniac" is a story of western
lite, embodying, according to ad
vance reports, a big auto race classic,
a boxing match in which Mix cham

some daring rides on the famous
horse Tony, and other "stunts" that

Empress Today affords the last
chancev to see William Russell in
"The Lincoln Highwayman," by
Paul Dickey, at the Empress theater.
The garage which Jimmy Clunder,
the hero, acquires was specially built
on the Lincoln Highway. Many high
class motor cars lend a touch of
luxury to the picture. The plot runs
through many exciting incidents.

By Man's Cold Hand
Against Her Face
Mrs. Anna Boyshou, 3115 PinkW
street, was awakened about 10 last
night by a man's cold hand, thrust
against her face. When she screamed
the intruder grappled with her, but
she eluded him and escaped from
the house in her night clothing.
The woman and her 11-year-old
daughter, Freda were alone in the
house. They had left the front door
unlocked for an older daughter, an
employe of the Western Union, who
was attending a lodge meeting.
Mrs. Boyshou said that the man
commanded her to "lie still," when
she woke, but that she jumped out
of bed and ran through the front
door, which he had left standing
ajar. She went to the house of a
neighbor and called police.
Freda, the younger daughter, was
awakened by her mother's screams
and also fled from the house in her
night dress. When the police ar
rived the intruder had disappeared.

The Beautiful Story
of a Woman'tS Quest
Everywoman, thy beauty, youth and modesty
Are attributes that nothing can replace
Once flown and when time's hand shall trace
Upon the cameo clearness of thy face
Shadows of evil e'en the constancy
Of those who love thee truly, cannot stand
Against the loss of all that gave thee grace. ,
Pause, Everywoman, on the brink of tragedy ;
Place in thy trust in truth whose charity
Shall lead thee through the labyrinth unto love,
Ending the quest at last, and in the sacred grove
Where happiness and hope majestically move
To the soft and dulcet cooing of the dove
Thy heart shall find its own in rhapsody
Akin to the soft music of the spheres
Thru all the coming years.
