The hypnotic influence of the practical if brutal police captain upon the weakened, dissipated boy gives It it's title, but the real work, the beauty and admirable qualities are centered in the devotioon and love of the young scapegrace's wife, who would sacrifice everything and everybody, even herself, to free her husband from the terrible charge of murder. Miss Randolph may feel proud of the recognition given her in this part. She is the lowly bred but loyal wife, the plain and blunt spoken girl who cannot conceal, nor does she try to disguise, the whole hearted devotion she thinks she owes to her young husband. Her naivete and naturalness is the cleverest art, and we are proud, all of us, of our leading lady. Mr. Buchanan, as the great attorney, is great in every sense of the word; his dignity, his interests, all go down before his kindness of heart, won by the indomitable trust and love of the young wife, and the large patronage of his best client are sacrrificed when once the ice about his heart is thawed. Mr. Maclaren is not on the stage much, but in the inquisatorial scene With the captain he comes out strong, and in his final allegiance to his misjudged wife he gives an evidence of ;ood red blood that proves a heart beats even under his weak exterior. Air Thome makes a perfect bulldog of a police captain, and those of us \\lio have seen them at their work with an unfortunate prisoner can testily to the truthfulness of his part. Miss Wright has a peculiar part, but she construes it properly. Mr. Mather is on only long enough to make good in the part of the suicide, and Mr. Cossart shows he can do a serious part as well as comedy. The rest of the company give splendid support, and the stage settings are rich and sumpt- ous, those of the first act being especially beautiful. A noticeable feature of the Marlowe performances is the intelligence of the audiences, and their appreciation of the many good points brought out in the high class of plays the company is presenting, and to the credit of the theater goers in this part of the city be it said they know that they have a better company at home than they can see downtown, and the best people within a radius of ten miles are nocking to the Marlowe, and they deserve all the patronage they get, and evety seat should be taken for this -week's presentation of "The Third Degree." Right in the midst of the political campaign, Stage Director "Rick" Sullivan will put on next week "The Man of the Hour," probably the best play of American politics ever written, and the box office already shows that seat reservations should be made early. GLAMOUR THEATER. Week commencing October 4, until October 10: Friday, October 4. "Glacier National Park." A beautiful picture of Montana's new national park, showing scenery rivaling that of the famous Yellowstone park "The Amateur Iceman," comedy, featuring Arthur Johnson, and and a vitagraph, "Life Portrayal," with Edith Storey.

National encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic, Los Angeles, LINDEN THEATER The popular Linden theater has arranged . a splendid program for the first half of the week, commencing October 7, which will include Will and Kemp, a sensational acrobatic novelty, presenting numerous meritorious feats, introducing humorous situations which add greatly to the number in entertaining the audience. Prince and Deerle, in the original number, well named ','The Act of Class," offering singing of a very high order. Particular attention is paid to the costuming of this number, which makes it very interesting. The Ellisons, known as the Musical Blacksmiths, present a number away from the ordlnjary, showing several quick transformations from the scenic standpoint, which are considered exceedingly clever. |Kil- Han and Moore, singing and tal comedians, offer a laughable which will be highly appreciated the discriminating clientele of cozy playhouse.

Again Detective Chase demonstrates his shrewdness and unearths a deep laid plot to swindle the government. Also a high class comedy. Fame Dickens Gave Bath. Bath is a city for which the Dickena lover ought to have a peculiar affection. Dickens stayed frequently in Bath in his early days, when engaged on reporting work, and his tobacco jar and beer mug are still piously pie- eerved at the Saracen's Head. About six miles from Bath is the tiny village of Pickwick, through which Dickens often passed, and he bestowed th name upon his most famous creation Many of the scenes in "Pickwick" are it will be remembered, laid in Bath There is at the present moment -- or was until quite recently -- a tradesman in Bath of the name of Snodgrass But can you find a Tupman in the world to bring an action against a novelist?-- London Chronicle ing act, by his Acion, which should "prove highly interesting to Children of all ages. For the last half of the week, commencing Thursday, October 10, another strong program has been arranged which will include the musical comedy entitled "Hallowe'en Hop," presented by seven capable artistic performers. Senator Francis Murphy, known as the "German Orator'" will tell his po- iticial story 1n his own inimitable way. Frank and Kate Carlton offer a singing and talking skit, and Musical Wheeler presents a tramp musical novelty built for laughing purposes only. Ted Bailey's famous posing sanines will complete this exceptionally strong program. MUSICAL SERVICE. The Englewood Presbyterian church choir, under direction of Glenwood Preble, have resumed the monthly musical service. The next one will be given Sunday evening at 7:30 o'clock. The choir will be assisted by Mr. M. J Brines, tenor. Mr. Brines is a newcomer to Chicago from New York. He has a beautiful tenor voice and is a strong addition to the musical circles of Chicago. The Englewood public should remember that these musical services are the events in the musical world in our part of the city. MRS. ETHEL CONNELY CUTLER. It is with pleasure we announce the return home of Mrs. Ethel Connely Cutler, who has spent the summer abroad, taking special courses in voice production and lyric diction in the best schools abroad and in New York and will resume teaching, both private and in class, this week.

She will be at her city studior, suite 427, in the Fine Arts Pldg., on Tuesdays and Fridays and at her home studio, 6444 Stewart Ave., ·and may be reached by telephone, Wentworth 4304. NATIONAL THEATER Thomas E. Shea will open a week's engagement at the National week commencing Sunday matinee, October 6, presenting three plays, two well known to the annual theater going public, and his latest successful modern drama, "A Man and His Wife." This piece is a dramatization of Samuel Shipman's well known novel, "The Spell." It furnishes Mr. Shea a vehicle which will Increase his popularity even more firmly with the theatrical public. "A Man and His Wife" tells the story of a young man who has risen from the ranks to the head of a large banking institution. His young wife proves fickle and makes the not infrequent mistake of accepting attentions and sophistries of a wealthy young man because of her husband's tendency to give his business the greatest share of his attention; and the wife foolishly imagines she is love with the man of the world. The husband, discovering this, allows her to go her way and a separation results. This shock has scarcely passed when a run is instituted on his bank by an enemy, a politician and a tool of the trusts, whom the banker has opposed. In the third act occurs the big scene-the run on the bank. It is here Mr. Shea has the opportunity of demonstrating his ability as one of America's foremost actors of dramatic force and declamation. In the end the wife finds that the god of Love will not stand trifling with and, conscience- stricken, returns to her husband. Mr. Shea will present "A Man and His Wife" on Sunday, Monday and Wednesday matinees, "Dr Jekylil and Mr. Hyde" on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday nights," and "The Bells" on Sunday, Tuesday and Friday nights and Saturday matinee. ALDERMAN ON TOUR OF DRAINAGE DISTRICT. To get an idea of the general senti ment throughout the drainage district, Alderman Charles E. Reading, Demo cratic candidate for Trustee of the Sanitary District, made an automobile tour of the territory outside of the city this week. From every part of the district comes the same cry for relief, from prevailing conditions, and Mr. Reading has been endorsed all along the line as the right man for the office, regardless of partisan politics. It is freely predicted by the knowing ones that he will be elected by a large majority. Stump Speeches. Andrew Carnegie was talking about the horrors of war. "Once, at the height of the American civil war," he said, "two men at a railway station saw a cartload of wooden legs depart for a military hospital. "Those wooden legs," said the first man, "are a rather elequent protest against war aren't they?" "Yes," agreed the other; "they are what you might call Htnrrm sneeohes."--Tit Bits.

"Hooked double" they make a great Winter pair. In cold weather the range needs help to keep the kitchen warm. This is just what the little kitchen heater does--it supplies the heat to keep the kitchen warm and cozy while the faithful range gives all of its heat to the cooking of the dinner. The total expense is only just what it was when you used the range alone in the Summer. For, strange to say, the little heater, while it will burn coal or coke, will do just as well on short rations of waste paper and garbage. You simply throw in the paper and garbage you commonly carry to th« allay-throw it in two or three times a day and the appliance yields all the heat needed for an ordinary sized kitchen. Think of what this means--it means that you can cook all winter on a gas range, entirely free from the drudgery of handling wood, coal, ashes and dirt, At the same time you can heat your kitchen with waste you generally tote out into the cold and wet. There won't be a home in this city without one of these kitchen heaters when the people learn about them. We expect to install thirty thousand this Fall--better order one now before the rush season, THE PEOPLES GAS LIGHT CSk COKE COMPANY 238 W, 63RD ST., NEAR YALE AVE. TEL WENT. 417.
