Mies Tilton is one of the youngest comediennes. She has been starring in the musical comedies for some time, but Martin Bock, president of the Orpheum circuit, showed 1 heir a contract with many figures. and she signed. Another Interesting personage coming to the Orpheum is Bob Hall, "the extemporaneous chap.' Of course you know him the man who recites verses right off, about anything under the sun. Remember?

DANGER LURKS IN TOO MANY BOOKS ON BABIES TO MOTHER'S CONFUSION Medical authorities are commenc- 1 ing to recognize the danger of the flood" of literature which has come into the market on the subject of the care of babiea The dansrer iis not In the information contained in the many volumes, but in the variable ways In which the beneficial results are obtained. One of the best informed authorities on the subject in New York city told of being called in to attend a baby that had contracted a severe cold. In attempting to get -the hlutory of the exposture he got this answer from the auxdous young mother: "My own mother gave me one book and my mother-in-law another and both of them insisted upon the importance of fresh air for the baby while he was being bathed. One said to overheat the room and open the windows. The other one 6ald to open the windows and then permit the room to cooS back to normal temperature. I do wish somebody would write a book about what not to do instead of so many things to do." Charlie Chaplin, the most famous screen comedian, iprobably never heard this, but he has answered it in an entirety unexpected way by a series of the most comical scenes he ever put into a picture In the things he does in raising his foster son in "The Kid," First National's six reels of joy. which will be the concurrent attraction at the Allen and Regent theatres, beginning Monday. Every single one of the things he Joes are apparently demanded toy tihe two-week old foundling he has taken for his own, and every one of them could toe compiled in a list by any young mother under a general heading of "Don't" Charlie follows the reasonable course dictated by improper "motherhood," snd The KM" is developed In spite of the cart: the baby gets rather than Because of it. HINT8 FOR MOTHERS While It Is no demonstration as to what should be done for young babies, mothers can get a host of hints as to what not to do in watch ing Charlie Chaplin take cars of his two weeks' old foster child In "The Kid."

Helen Keller Will Grace Orpheum Stage Next Week One of the Most Remarkable Women in the World Will Be Assisted by Her Life Long Friend, Mrs. Anne Sullivan Macey Blind and Deaf from an Early Age, She Has Surmounted Great Difficulties Another Feature of the Bill Is Miss Beliveau, Canada's Own Violinist Miss Helen Keller, whom many people regard as one of the most remarkable women of the world, will top the bill at th4 Orpheum theatre next Thursday, assisted by her lifelong friend. Mrs. Anne Sullivan Macy: she will offer a very interesting programme. Miss Keller was born at Tuscumbe, Alabama, 39 years ago. Phe is the only daughter of Captain and Mrs. Arthur II. Keller. At iiirth she was absolutely normal, but when she reached the age of 19 months, a severe fever deprived her of her s.ght, speech and hearing. Without these important senses, the child grew up practically a savage. At the age 01 seven she was a petulant tyrant, gaining her power by the sympathy and pity of her father and mother. Her parents were naturally distracted and at theirwits'end. Captain Keller being a friend of Alexander Graham Bell, the famous inventor of the telephone, went to him for advice, and because of the inventor's suggestion Miss Anne Sullivan came to Tuscumbia to teach Helen tho first rudiments of normal and d-ent human intercourse. Anne Sullivan has herself been blind. Cured she became a missionary in the world of darkness. From the day she arrived at t-hp Keller estate and through years that led to her marriage to Professor John Albert Macy, and in fact, to tho present date, she has served Helen Keller as an indefatigable teacher and devoted friend. When Helen Keller bad reached the age of eight, the fact that she was learning to read and) study through the sense of touch was much written about and discussed. But certainly no one had the faintest Idea that the blind, deaf woman, who had been taughr o speak with as much mechanical difficulty almost as might be experienced in producing speech from the statue, would one day be a headliner In Orpheum vaudeville. Anothpr Interesting feature of the programme, will be the appearance of Marjorie Barrack Beliveau, Can- ada s own violinist, who will present a repertoire of popular and classical selections which has proved very successful so far over the Orpheum circuit this season Reports of Miss Beliveau's appearance at Mmneapo- lia St. Paul, and other cities where Orpheum theatres are operated, are ery Tattering, and lovers of music in Calgary can look forward to a very great treat. Mel Klee. will present "Just a Laugh." an amusing combination of storks. ongf" and quick-fire comedy patter. Mel Klee is a thoroughly experienced entertainer who knows where and when to plant a laugh to reap the best possible results. He ts cne of those performers who is welcomed by every manager because he has never been known to fail to give a good account of himself. v' Harry J Cntjley, assisted by Naomi hay, will appear in "Rice and Old Shoes " That the times have changed even for rural drama Is demonstrate ed by Harry J. Conley in his new' skit. "Rice and Old Shoes." Mr. Con-ley portrays a "rube" but not the kind of the "by gosh" period. His "rube" is of a decidedly up-to-the-minute IndivkltiaL An example of his timeliness is shown at the very beginning of the sketch when he makes his appearance not on the hay rack, but on a motorcycle. TheRe modern twists coupled with the exceedingly bright dialogue, the capablo assistance of Naomi Ray and an elaborate scenic setting, put "Rice and Old Shoes" In the winning class of vaudeville offerings. Bob LaSalle will present his 1921 offering in songs, stories and steps.

' an The Long Arm of Mannister Is Grand's Offering, Monday Maia Persons in Narrative Are Nine in Number Played By Actors Who Are Specia ists in Types of Roles They Essay Henry B. Walthall Supported by Hefene Chadwick ...Wl Henry P.. Walthall, in his latest succees "The Long Arm of Mannister," will be the headliner at the Grand on Monday. A long Id st of players appear throughout the unfo'.tiing of the complex story of "The Long Arm of Mannister. In the wnrWng cut of the ingenious and well-laid plan of revenge, Mannister's agents are every where, some are but shadows in the moonlight others passing figures on the sidewalks of the crowded streets, aH doing their small but important parts in this great taie. The main persons? in the narrative nro nine in number, and are played by actors who are specialists in the type of rols they essay. The distinguished master of the screen, Henry B. Walthall, dominates the cast by his brilliant work as Mannister. the generous friend and loving husband, whose heart has hera hardened toy the treachery of his wife and' business associates. Mr, Walthall needs no introduction, nor indeod are words of praise necessary. His potation at the very top of his profession Is freely acknowledged by all. In support of Mr. Walthall, two beautiful and talented young women appear In parts demanding ability of the highest order. Helene Chadwick. as the worltKy wise and none-too-honest Madam Do La Mere, proves herself once more to be artist of the first water In addition, to supporting Mr. Walthall, Miss Chadwick has appeared1 as leading woman with Tom Moore and several other of the big stars of fUmdorn. The beauty of Mias Olive Ann Alcorn as the deluded and wronged wife of Mannister, is hot only Joy to the eye, but her acting Is so true and convincing that even the most captious of critics could do aught but praise. The roles of the arch enemies of Mannister are played by euch well known and! sterling actors as Wrn. H. Clifford, Charles Wheelock, Barney Furev and John Cossar. The'r parts offered constant temptation to over act, but with a restraint that Is as oommenda&le, as it is convincing, they all scored the full hundred per cent. Iiast but not least, a wwl .nnt Hallam Cooley, who so brilliantly interprets the role ot the weak and easily ted Oastin Sinclair. Young, handsome and1 possessed of the rare gift of "screen presence," Mr. Cooley malces Mf role a real, living and convincing study of human nature. Next to Mr. Walthall, the task assigned to Haltem Cooley was perhaps the most difficult in the entire production. But in his capable hand we see the unfortunate Gaston Sinclair, fatso friend of Manls- 'LONG ARM OF MANNISTER' SPECIAL ATTRACTION AT GRAND THEATRE The management of the Grand announces tliat It has secured for a limited engagement tho dramatic novelty of the year.
