Miller. The identical models and prices prevail in all locations, and the same measure of courtesy and service is to be had. m Onemayrestsecureinthethought that the only difference might be termed one of geography and the only advantage one of conven- ience. The I. Miller character- istics of novelty and excellence do not vary regardless of address. 1.

Marjorie Rambeau, in Channing Pollock's "The Sign on the Door" at the Shubert and Henry B. Wal- thall at the Grand in a satirical comedy drama, "Taken In," by Her- bert Bashferd. While not so en- thusiastic over the Bashford piece, the star was highly praised. Com- mencing Feb. 28 the Shubert will have Griffith's "Way Down Bast" for a four weeks* run, while the Grand's attraction for next week will be ,4 The Dangerous Age," with "Clarence" and Lenoro Ulric in the "Son-Daughter" to follow. At the photoplays: "The Kid," second week, New Koyal; "Forbid- den Fruit," Newman; "The L.ast of the Mohicans," Twelfth Street; "Prisoners of Love," Dori:.- "The Dangerous Age," playing in New York under the title 'White Villa," is next week's attraction at the Grand. Its success is proble- matical, as no one is mentioned in the advertising. Several of the members of the "Taken In" company, supporting Henry B. Walthall, are well known to the film fans. Prominent among them are Mary Charleston, of the Kssanay-Vitagraph Co.; William Clifford and Arthur Rutledge. Al Jolson, with "Sinbad," will be the next attraction at the Shubert, following "Way Down East." Jol- son will open Sunday, March 27. Earlier in the season he drew over $40,000 at $3.50 top.

Occasionally a burlesque troupn comes along with something out- side the old familiar stuff, and you have to give it to Waldron's "Bos- tonians" for being one of them. In the first place there was something of a plot; in the second there was a woman "dope" done quito differ- ently by Nettie Nelson, who, while imitating Lew Kelly's manner, did not use any of his stuff and who worked in fashionable dress instead of the rags and slouchy attire so often seen. Then there was a danc- ing team, Francis and Ross, who made the hard-boiled regulars sit up and "holler" for more. Although not so advertised in the billing, Charles H. Waldron's "Bostonians" could bo featured as the burlesque show without a shimmie shake, not even a quiver. A final check-lip of the Kansas City Motor Show's receipts show there were 93,640 paid admissions during the seven days. Rotall car sales made on the floor of the show were 375.
