ARCADE
Earl Williams, Norma Talmadge,
and Charles Ray are .the trio of stars
that will entertain this week at the
Arcade. Mr. Williams will appear to-
day and tomorrow in Winchell Smith's
play "The Fortune Hunter." Miss
Talmadge's vehicle twill be in "She
Loves and Lies" which has been se-
cured for a return engagement Tues-
day, Wednesday, -and Thursday. Com-
pleting the week, Charles Ray's lat-
est comedy success, "The Clodhop-
per," will be shown Friday and Sat-
urday.
Formerly on Stage
Few stories are more entertaining
than Winchell Smith's "The Fortune
Hunter." It has appeared on the stage

and in novel form and been highly
successful in both. Perhaps the tale
is highly improbable yet it. is cleverly
developed that audience is always ex-
pectant but hever able to forsee the
outcome.
The hero in "The Fortune Hunter"
is a young man endowed with the
iusual human ability for spending his
father's money but absolutely unsul-
lied by covetous habits. When his
father dies and he discovers that he
is penniless, he tries to make a living
but fails in all his attempts until his
friends suggest a plan to him as his
last resort. It is that he go to a.
small town and marry a rural heir-
ess. When he embarks on this for-
tune hunting adventure he becomes
the center of a number of very enter-
taining, unexpected situations.
In "She Loves and Lies," to appear
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday
at the Arcade, Norma Talmadge dem-
onstrates a unique form of Zeap year:
proposal. She is left a fortune of'
$100,000 on condition that she marry
the man of her choice. To win the
fortune an'd at-the same time retain
her propriety she hits on the scheme
of disguising herself as a woman of
