FLOWERS, Secretary ot the Corporation X .... -er At the Ottoway. Henry B. Walthall, screen deline ator of forceful and imaginative roles, who ia appearing in productions . released through Exhibitors Mutual, has Deen called the "Edgar Allen Poe of the screen." Mr. Walthall is, In fact," a deep student of the author of "The Raven," "Annabel Lee and "The Gold-Bug," and possesses one of the most com plete and interesting collections of the great poet's works in existence. The affinity-of Poe and Walthall has often been remarked. It was in such successes as "The Avenging Con science," built upon some of Poe's stories, that the great actor's ability to visualize the psychology of the emotions was demonstrated, and' in such characterizations Waithall is without a rival. In stature, temperament and linea ments me actor mignt oe called a reincarnation of Poe, who himself came of a histrionic family, his father being one of the most talented actors of his day. As Stephen Duane. in "Modern Hus bands," at the Ottoway tomorrow and Thursday, Walthall more closely ap proximates the imaginative role which made him famous, than anything he has done within the past three years, which means that he has again come into his own with a role suited to his rare and distinctive talents. which will be seen at the Imperial again today. Jimmy McGowan, the celebrated baritone, was accorded a regular ovation after every song, and more tnan iuinuea tne glowing promises made for him by the man agement of the Imperial. : Reld s latest picture, The Love Burglar," is one scene of rapid-fire ac tion after another. Everybody knows how "Wally" can scrap, and he has one splendid battle in this picture, which takes place in a second-rate saloon. How Reid, a society idler, starts out to rescue his brother, finds himself tagged with the character and reputa- are making desperate Efforts to hon orably r exist on a far inadequate income. David Burnham,- millionaire, who had ruined the father of Hope Nelson, comes to her in an effort to get her into his clutches. In ' the meantime J(je Maynard, a crook appears in the room of the girls in an effort to. escape the police. Mr. Jack X. Ltewis plays the role of Joe Maynard in a manner that only adds to his" already-enviable reputation. Mr. Warren Wade as Detective Clancy, Mr. Parker Fennelly as David Burnham, Miss Mable Frost as Mrs. Edwards and Mr. Larry Powers as "The' Crab" ! all have exceptionally strong parts tion of Kid Colt, a western bad man and execute them in a most creditable j a. m j.n ji i .

Mr. Hal stack as J? up jua to that character to win the love Of a girl, form the basic plot of the film, and as in everything else featuring Reid, the picture is full of action from start to finish. Jimmy McGowan 'has a wonderful voice and his songs yesterday brought round after round of well-earned applause. He will sing again today, and all this week. A Bray pictograph will Lbe shown today in connection with "The Love Burglar." At the Imperial. "Wallace Reid'a best picture."

TWO WE In 3n TODAY ALICE BRADY in The Frothy Delightfully Human Picture "RED HEAD" At the Piedmont. Doubtless has any bill ever been presented in Charlotte that proved as entertaining as the one now being presented by the Jack X. Lewis Stoci: company at the Piedmont. "The" Girl He Couldn't Buy" is a production having every quality ot real refined entertainment, and is an attention-holder from the rise of the first curtain to the last. , ?The Girl He Couldn't Buy" will be presented again tonight and tomorrow matinee and night. The Lewis players were greet ed with full houses at both matinee and night performances yesterday, and from reports coming from the box office the remaining performances of this bill will be seen by record break ing audiences. The cast of characters in "The Girl He Couldn't Buy" is one of the strongest ever seen here. Each play er has a role especially fitting to his I or her ability, all of which tends to make this bill one without a dull moment throughout it. Miss Edna Grandin as Hope Nelson and Mi3S Dawn Frost as Kitty Burns are seen at their best. The play ope,ns with a scene in a New York tenement house where Hope Nelson and Kitty Burns wards furnishes much comedy in his demonstration of his methods of sell ing his safety razor and in his re hearsal of the circus act that he is endeavoring to establish.

Some day some "muckraker" is going to spring on an unsuspecting public the real reason why congress makes haste so slowly with important legislation. Just to beat that muckraker to it, here's the reason. Golf. . v - And a story to prove it. A senate page, son of a senator's secretary said to his dad: "Senator Edge certainly has a lot of influence for a new senator. Why he Called Senator Cummins down, out of the presiding officer's chair, and got Senators Elkins, Gey, Hitchcock, and I don't know who all, and tney went out to play golf right while the senate was in session. ' Among' the ' harmless hobbles of legislators, none, says Senator Mc-Nary of Oregon, is more Interesting than his. "It affords so much - variety, and not a few surprises," said McNary, telling about it. His hobby is hunting Sunday dinners. Not a country hotl or old time tavern within many, miles of Wash ington has escaped McNary. Whenever he hears of a new place, he's off . to try it. The other Monday he came to the senate indignant. "Found a new place yesterday," he explained, "and .they charged me $2.50 for a chicken dinner. Worst of it was, the chicken appeared to have been chased up ' and down, around and over the adjacent Blue Ridge mountains until it was all toughened up before it got into the $2.50 class' KONC-CKOUT "BLOW. The knockout blow is scientifically explained as follows: When the lower jaw is struck on its point, especially with an uppercut, the bony portion of the ear inside is driven forcibly upward into the glenoid cavity of the skull, above and behind which Is situated the delicate labyrinth of the inner ear. The jawbone strikes hard upon the thin plate of bone that supports these sensitive organs and gives a shock to the semicircular canals that is Ih-stahtly transmitted by. them to the bulb, producing dizziness, nausea and momentary paralysis. ' , This explains why a sideways blow on the jaw is more effective as a knockout than one delivered directly upon the point of the jaw. For the shock of a sideways blow is received in one glenoid cavity, that on the side opposite the one on which it is struck, while the shock of a' blow in the center is divided between the cavities on the two sides. - Paris The Smokers Defense League is conducting an energetic Campaign against the increase in the price of tobaicco ' by the government.
