DE LUXE—MONDAY AND TUESDAY Douglas Fairbanks WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY Into the street Of the town, forgetful of all eise they struggle In knee-deep mud, amid a downpour of rain and In the teeth of an Arctic gale. They hat tie until blood and mud disguise their features and make them, seem what they are—no longer humans but raging beasts. Clothes torn off, bodies with mere rags still clinging to thorny sodden with mud, they fight on, taking real knock-down blows and scrambling to their Tect for more. Meanwhile, the crowd, as crar.ed and bestial as the fighters, wntches and urges them .on regardless of the rain and tho whipping gale of the storm. Danco hall girls In flimsy cos- tumos and miners In raacklnaws and oil skins bravo tho wrath of the elements to observe tho greater wrath of their fellow-beings, until at last when thtrcombatants are nearlng the end ot their endurance and are floundering from exhaustion, there comes a startling and unexpected end—-Ihe end of the fight and the end of tho story. '^Carmen of tho Klondike" is truly a great picture. It Is !J'c kind of story that will appeal to everyono who admires red-blooded, wholesome acllon without the stupid over-acted mela- drama. It Is doubtless tho most gripping production which has shown at the Itoyal theater In a long time. "WOMAN AND THE LAW." Picture Based on Famous De Saulles Case at De Luxe. The struggle of a woman for her child and the lengths to which she will go for its protection are pictur- Ized with tremendous dramatic Intensity In tho William Pox photoplay, "Woman and tho Law," which will be Ihu attraction at the Do Luxe theatre' on Monday and Tuesday. Written and staged by It. A. Walsh, the brilliant young director of the Vox forces, It presents a plcttiro.'of timely and pertinent interest to everyone. -Uascd on the Internationally .sensational Do Saulles case, which so Shocked the United States and South America and which was discussed In every home in tho country, it'is said, the thrilling moment when the woman who has slain for the salee of her child faces tho jury which is lo de-, eide her late, depicts a situation to hold the most hardened play-goer spellbound. . • : Meeting a beautiful heiress. In South America, a young American college man marries her 1 and bring* her to New York. For u time all goes well with them. Tho bride Is happy in the home, which her husband hns made for her in the great city and she is slow to realize how he Is bored at her company and longs for hln old companions of tho gay .life of tho city. After a child Is born to them, he soon wearies and makes life hideous for her with his escapades with notorious women. She bears with him until he takes her child from her. Then the elemental passions leap to tho-surface, sho kills him, and is forced to jfaco the. law, It, is left to the Jury 16 decide her ' fate. The question placed squarely before them is the question that this play places squarely before every person who sees it thrown on the screen: Are I hero provocations which justify a woman to kill? And the jury decides In a scone that will live long in tho memory of everyone who sees it. "WHICH WOMAN."

De L.uxe-'-Wednesday and Thursday. Distinctive scenery serves as the background for exterior scenes in "Heading South," Douglas Fairbanks' latnBt Artcraft picture which will bo slfown at the DeLuxe theater on Wednesday and Thursday. Some of the scenes were staged in the forest of giant cactus, twenty miles from Tucson, AH?,., where tho cactus ranges from ten to fifty feet In height and have been described as "sentinels pf the desert/.',.....^ u;... Despite the fact* that the cactus is covered with piercing 'thorns,' Fairbanks lassood a projecting branch and elimhed up the side of one of the trees, jumping to the ground as he neared the top. Practically all the natives of Tucson turned out to witness the taking of the Fairbanks scenes. It required twelve men lo uproot one of these cactus trees, which was crated and shipped to Los Angeles to bo transplanted on |the large Fair-, hanks estate, where there Is a collection of trees of all .species. "Hcadln' South" Is a sensational story of Mexican raiders. Wiui the liu«s tui.t bileen Percy Is to be seen In the future as lending woman with Uert Lytell In "Making Oood" cames a press notice which tells us. what Eileen thinks of jaw, music. Miss Percy you will remember wnS lending woman for Douglas Fairbanks In several ot his pictures. In fact sho played In what we consider one of Doug's best pictures, "Down To Earth." ' , Notwithstanding the fnct- tlint Miss Percy was a Zlegfeld "Follies" girl before she entered pictures she absolutely taboos raglime and syncopated music. "And jazz," says Miss I'erey with a decided tone of scorn, "rhould not even bo spoken in the same breath with music." Think of It, this from a girl who danced on the boards to foxtrot and one-step melodies until ' the pictures claimed her. •Miss Percy Is devoted to classical muBic and claims that it "inspires her. Whenever Miss Percy is missed from a,"set' 'on the studio stage she enn invariably be found close to the phonograph'or tho baby grand piano, listening. or playing, iteeently the Lytell company "shot" some wedding scenes In Christ Bpiscop:il church In Los Angeles and every once in a while the little leading woman would slip away to a quiet nook In the organ loft to indulge in real music. It Is a safe guest, however, that Robert Lytell would rather dance Willi this little Belfast girl who is ?o nimble of toe than listen to organ music with her, who wouldn't. Hale Hamilton Is the proud possessor or a scarf pin presented him by King George beforo whom he appeared In "Uet-Rlch-Qtiick Walling - ford" at Windsor Castle. Hale also appeared before tho kai­ ser once. ' "I'd like lo again," says Hale, "with a bayonet In one hand >'ind a bomb in the other." When someone asked ITnrloo Caruso the other day why he did not announce his engagement before he surprised the world with his marriage, he Innocently replied: "Hut 1 didn't know It myself until it happened." '''"_-• Eileen Percy. Charles Kay, Paramount star, received a letter from V. A. Vandorlip, chairman of Iho National War Saving Committee, thanking him for his novel plan lo help boost the sale of War Savings Stamps. Charlie recently conceived the Idea that for every Thrif'. Stamp that was sent lo him by a film fan he would send an autographed photo with the Thrift Stamp they sent to Iilm pasted on it. Since he started this scheme lie has received hundreds of letters from film fans enclosing a Thrift iHlutnp for a photo. There Is no expense attached to tho fan, as he gets his stamp back, but It serves to'increase the -sale of them. Mr. Vnnderllp enclosed four Thrift Stamps in his letter to Churllo for one of his autographed photos. , De Luxe—Today Miss Bennett's role in "The Biggest Show on Earth - ' is that of a young girl who tames lions and who performs- - dally In a cage filled with Hons in her father's circus.

The. minister Is in Washington in conference. He expressed surprise when lie learned that the opinion hail gained ground in America that. Germany might give up because of hunger, which would drivo desperate people to revolt. "There can be no question that there Is a shortage of most of the essentials of life-in Germany," said Mr. Morris, "but to state that this borders on the verge of starvation, is erroneous..Tho |«lvlllnn»'p6pnhttlon has bebo' - -'reduced- to the minimum 'ration but still receives sufficient for existence.

"It IB - a mistake to believo that lack of fpod has provoked a strong current toward revolution or any general lessening of -loyally of the people. They still posses faith in the Invincibility of the military power, being purposely kept in ignorance of the real condition on the western front, not only as regards German reverses but also Iho full significance of America's entry into the war.
