HE LIVES! HE BREATHES! HE WALKS! HE SEES! What Is He, Man or Monster? "FRANKENSTEIN" The Man Who Made a Monster A FRIENDLY WARNING If you have a weak heart and cannot stand' excitement or gruesomeness, we advise you NOT to see this production. If, on the contrary, you like an unusual thrill, you will find it in "FRANKENSTEIN" WEDNESDAY-THURSDAY Manager Schuster Explains'"Frankenstein" Nov.'that "Frankenstein," the picture which has piqued the curiosity of so many people, is coming and will be seen at the Saenger Theatre on Wednesday and Thursday, it may be well to clear up some mooted points in this Frankenstein legend. At the risk of telling the render things that he already knows. Manager Schuster of the Saenger Theatre sets forth a , few facts about "Frankenstein." In the first place', Frankenstein was the man who made the monster, and not the monster that somebody made. The idea of creating human life is centuries old. But tho Frankenstein legend in literature i.s only one hundred years old. "Frankenstein" was written by Mrs. Mary Wollstonccroft Shelley, wife of the well-known British poet. It was written in a cottage on the shore of Lake Como in a competition with two of his friends. The competition was to produce the most unusual story. The others all gave Mrs. Shelley the palm, and for one hundred years there has been no story us unusual as "Frankenstein." . In book form, "Frankenstein" has been published in every language and is issued in a tremendous number of editions. Coming down to more pertinent facts to the I heater-goer, Colin Clivc plays Frankenstein, who created the monster; Boris Karloff plays the monster, Mae Clark plays the fiancee of Dr. Frankenstein, and John Boles plays the other man in Mac Clark's life.

"Hut, honestly, Cissy, when a mail has been madly rushing a girl for months, if he's decent he'll fore her to lot him down, won't he? I don't expect a man to marry every girl ho goes with. Like mamma says, they have to go together for quite a while to fiud out whether they want to marry. Hut I do say that when a man will do that twice in two years—just throw two dandy girls down flat, and for no reason at all—any girl who knows about it, it she hus any sense, will leave him utterly alone." "Well," said Cecily, essaying logic, "he did have a reason, of course, If it was only that he suddenly got tired of them. Maybe the girls didn't know the reason; but maybe they did and didn't like to tell." "No, sir. 1 don't tljiuk so. Bea told Lutio everyth'ng. Of course, L!>i di 1 sa- that when she began to go with Barry he told her that he coul'In't Quarrel. That l<e had a. complex or something about quarrel: I forget whether she said complex or repression—but you know what I -.neau. He said a quarrel blew him out like a candle, aud he couldn't. But Bea said they hadn't actually quarreled. She did say that they d had an argument, but that as lar as she was concerned It was ju-t foolishness, aud she never dreamed that he was really angry. She said he just i.dn'i talk. So theu she came right in aud didn't offer to kiss him good night—but '.\a said she thought he would have. it sha'J waile-1. A tsuii ran't gel r.iatl and quit every time a. girl i dor--" offer to kiHa him good ulghtj can he?" "I shouid hope not. Just the same—that sounds like a quarrel to mi." "Well, what if it was? Lutie said she thr.ught, i ayt:>, Bea had been flirting a little, trying to get him to the point of talking marriage. But, anyway, Cissy, what can a girl do with a man who says he can't quarrel? It's swell for him, of course. But H simply means that he'd have to have his own way utterly about everything—you know. I told Lutie that if the girls had had their share of gray matter they'd have let him out for air when he first pulled that 'can't quarrel' line. What can you do with a man like that? Honestly! Just, 'Yes, dear' and 'No, dear 1 around him all the time. Silliest thing I over heard of!" Cecily forced herself to stop thinking that it might ho tolerable to "Yea, dear" aud "No, dear" around Barry all tho time and said, "Marta, promise me that you won't make a fuss at G rotation's party. Grctchen has loads of friends, and 1 owe her over BO many parties and—" "Oh, yoali? Put that in tho Ugh Huh department. Tho more I think of it the madder I gut. I won't make a fuss. I'm not going.

"A week from tomorrow night Gretch didn't ask me until yester day evening, but she said I iuislied tho list; I'll bet I'm a lill-in.

She was swaying down the aisle, and everyone was staring at her tweeds, her trim little hat, and the {loves, with their extravagant wrinkles. • • * pECILY remembered. All clay ^-* long she remembered, variously. She remembered it as an unforgivable falsehood and an insupportable truth; she remembered it as egregious nonsense, as none of lier affair, as a cardinal component of her life. She remembered, couscieutionsly, to forget all about it and sound happy when she telephoned lo Ann, at noon, to tell her that she had given up the idea of a birthday par- ly. Oh—different reasons, for one lliii!';. Marta and Herbi-i't liad :in- other engagement. She remembered ihat Harry was cruel aud fickle, and that he was kind end honorable, and that people slandered him. . Throughout the day she did think of a few other things. She thought that her piilk dress tind Ann's yellow were too short; and that all their clothes were dowdy.and out of fashion. She thought that Barry was an entire stranger to her, and that she had been an idiot to hope to touch the far edges o£ his life. She never, of course, had really hoped to enter Into his life. She must have known that his life was full before she had ever met him. Full? Crammed with girls, glamorous girls who lived In New York and who had wads of money and clothes and chauffeurs and trips to Europe, and who cried about him. Her pink dress was too short. She had not dared take even a sip from Billy's flask tho ther evening for fear—since she had never taken sips—it might go to her head and make her act silly, two couldn't smoke; she had never got Into the habit of using all this smart new slang, because Grand and Kosalie frowned so darkly at slang. Any man who was as sophisticated as Barry and who was not positively brutal would have to feel at least a stirring of pity for a stupid, dowdy, provinc'-l person who had shown so plainly her—well, at least her absurd admiration for him. Hut for Marta she too migbt soon have been crying about that Barry Harry would hate to have Harry would hate to have McKeel. her cry, anyone cry. Barry was gentle. liar- r;' was reasonable. Everyone should bo reasonable. She had played with i boys, hadn't she? Why shouldn't he have played with girls? Was it his fault that he hud grown tired? She had done things o£ the sort. The waltrefia came and brought j the ash tray Barry had asked, ttfft and blushed at some crumbs, and moved the catsup bottle two iuchei, and departed. ; ><(M<M ^:::-'^1' :: #i# Barry said, "Cecily, do you are the first real-...—,^,...™ feminine—that I have ever'..hacjjj| Frail Constance and her chauffeur,^ walked in-and sat beside him-qiil the right, and Bea, beautiful tSouiJif weeping, sat beside him on the left?
