AT THE MAJESTIC
Music and comedy will be the pre-
dominating features of the bill at the
Majestic on Monday night when the
new bill opens. It is filled with novel-
ty as well.
The show is headed by "The Lucky
Girls." It has many striking scenic
settings, particularly the one depict-
ing the famous beach at Honolulu.
Cliff Bragden makes a lot of fun in
the character of a Chaplinized baggage
man, while Norma Barry as an act-
ress and Harold Carr as a railroad
conductor assist materially. A bevy
of pretty girls help to make the offer-
Cooper and Smith, colored perform-
ers, will offer their piece "Hotel Gos-

piano and possess unusually good
voices for instrumentalists.

usual juggling act and from a well ap-
pointed billiard room he juggles every-
thing in sight until even the billiard
table is cast into the wings.
Henry B. Walthall, who made such
a great impression by his acting in
"The Birth of a Nation" will be the
feature at the Majestic today in a
drama called "Little Shoes." It is a
story of a rich little girl at the age of
ten, meeting a beggar boy who asks
for help. He is taken to the rich
home and clothed and given a new
pair of shoes.

No conception of such regions could

Many thrills are also included in the

Rich humor and mirth are also pro-
vided by a series of entirely new an-
