This will be the first big house in this neighborhood, the nearest being 17 blocks away. I Laura Arnold, who has won suc- cess both as a dramatic actress and musical comedy prima donna, will be the new leading woman with the Wilkes Players, taking the place of Jane Morgan, who is going to Cali- fornia. Miss Arnold played the leading role in "Nothing But the Truth." with William Collier, in New York city. She has appeared as leading woman with stock com- panies in Albany, New Haven and Halifax H. A. Smith, charged with grand larceny for an alleged hold-up in front of the Liberty, when Robert Cameron and H. C. Robertson, em- ployes of the theatre, were relieved of a bag containing cancelled the- atre tickets, the robber thinking he j sad"boon handed the cash, was ac- quitted this week by a jury in Judge J. T. Ronalds* department of ihe Superior Court. Cushman Hospital patients, 168 of them, were entertained Thursday night by Flora Haley. Miss Haley ■ seven years old, but plays like *n adult virtuoso. Benny Leonard, lightweight cham- pion, who fought here a few nights ago, paid a visit to the Orphcum and was recognized by Eddie Leon- ard, who heads the Orpheum bill this week. Eddie invited Bennie to uome up on the stago and sing. Bennie proved that he was game, and "almost" put over a number. Some houses here are complain- ing of lack of business because of Lent, while others claim that it has never bc»n better. ST. LOUIS. By GEORGE VV. GAMBRILL. Manager Phelps of the Grand Opera house (Junior Orpheum) rfj- •Crts that business has been above normal at this house despite Lent. A moving picture house said to «ost over K'25.000, With a seating capacity of 3,000, is to be built with- ■ one block of the Union Station nere.

EMPIRE.—Again dark this week, but has the Marcus Show of 1920 booked in for last three days of next week. Judging by stuff brought around by the advance man, the Marcus Show runs mostly to legs. So "hot" is some of the art that the pictures left for layout purposes in one local newspaper office were stolen before they could be used. -WIETING.—All the week, tirst public presentation of "Making Good," the Thomas Mott Osborne prison reform propaganda film. The Osborne reputation—Tom hails from Auburn, near this city—is proving a big drawing card at the box office. B. F. KEITHS.—Nine acts this week, and show running so long that it was necessary to advance opening 15 minutes after first matinee. Father of Irv and Jack Kaufman of this city, who appear on the bill, was in a front box on Monday afternoon, and the beys aimed quite a bit of added comedy in his direction. BASTABLE.—First part, "Follies of the Day." Gerard's show is good. STRAND.—All the week, "Man- Woman—Marriage." Established a new box office record on Sunday. Forced the box office to shut down on sale at intervals to permit the house to handle the crowds. Bill Hart, movie plainsman, once played Ogdensburg in the flesh, it was revealed this week when Rob- ert S. Algie ran across a bundle of old programs. Hart appeared in "The New Magdelen" on Nqy. 24, 1894, at the Ogdensburg Opera house. * The Richardson, Oswego, will be dark for a month. Alterations will be made. A new policy will be an- nounced when the theatre reopens, according to Owner Charles P. Gil- more. The house of late has been doing well with pictures. I'LL STAR OX BROADWAY YET. GRIFF The Ottawa Cltlsea— "GRIFF pleased the Dominion audfencs to a high degree, not hecaure he blows bubbles, but because of a particularly droll species of monologue ho uttters." GRIFF gave the following additional performances last week, and loved it too; Salvation Army Home for Children, St. Patrick's Catholic Orphanage. Ottawa Protestant Orphanage, Soldiers' Conva- lescent Horns, Wounded Soldiers In St. Luke's Hospital, and Children's Ward of St. Luke's. Six extra shows. MORRIS * FEIL Know Where I Am.

He also hag a company now playing In Scranton. Ten-twenty-thirty will govern at the daily matinees, Payton says. Maybe Allen Holubar, producer of "Man—Woman—Marriage" doesn't care about recalling the fact, but he was leading man for the Mozart Players, a stock company which played the Mozart, Elmira, for a season 10 years ago. Renwick Park, Ithaca, home of several motion picture producing organizations in years past, will be purchased by the city of Ithaca as a municipal park.
