Are sisters under their skins.

To show Edison as a Great Aner-

ways ended in success, are typical
of the American hero, and are too well
known to need repeating here. The
bare facts of Edison's life are fascin-
ating of themselves, and are here
simply and interestingly told.

competitive tournament. The tourna-
nent will be carried on tonight and

"High Jinks" at the Garrick, Detroit
The "tired neutral" is promised a
tonic in "High Jinks," which Arthur
Hammerstein will present for a re-
turn engagement at the Garrick the-
ater, Detroit, for a week's engagement,
commencing Monday night.
Rudolf Friml has furnished a musi-
cal score whose numbers are light,
airy, tuneful and catchy. There will
be popular price matinees on Wednes-
day and Saturday.
At tie Majestic
For variety and general high class
of offerings, the bill at the Majestic the
last half of this week, which opened
last night, ranks high among the top-
notch shows that have been played
at the Majestic since its opening. So
far as the relative merits are con-
cerned, it is beyond doubt one of the
best-balanced shows that the vaude-
ville house has witnessed. It is dif-
ficult to select an out-and-out head-
liner, for any one of the four acts
could well be classed as such, and the
other, a filler, is a good one.
Perhaps the audiences were most
pleased with the Kilkenny Four, a
quartet who sing old Irish songs and
are a scream as comedians.
Especially well presented and de-
serving of merit is the sketch of the
bill, "Solomon's Bargain," the story
of which is wound about the charac-
ter impersonation ability of Hyman
Eiler's animal circus, which opens
the bill, is also well received. Five
trained goats are the principal per-
formers, and they do amazing feats
for dumb animals. A sort of side show,
engineered by a wise, knowing mon-
key, is a source of amusement which
the audience did-not overlook.
To close the bill, the Six Military
Dancers, three young misses and three
men, are programmed. Dancing, and
dancing only, is their forte, but the
fact that they hold the stage for 20
minutes or so, dancing all the time,
shows that their terpsichorean ef-
forts are not mean.
