WALUCE, LTD. .THE ARCADE, LCTHBRIDQE OLE THEQ An Appreciation by Gabriel Time- What Norway's Famous Poet Says of Theobaldi. - -r-7--r- "Ole Theobaldl Is a true Norwegian, and no violinist after Ole Bull has done so much to bring the Norwegian banner to the front over the whole civilized world. In tho old time the Vikings made . Norway famous, and the whole world shuddered at the name. Now It is that of a persuasive genius who leads and wins honor tor the fatherland and tho people. Theobaldl is first in his originality ot tone landscapes', and a later development Ole Theobaidi. Of the Ole Bull style in tho new conn-try fuUllled the prophecy of Ole Bull, who once proclaimed Theobaldl as his Euccessor. He Is a real child ot nature and armed with the fortune of a mag' niflcent physique and excellent health ot soul and body. I can see now, when he steps on the platform and puts the violin to his chin, why he at ohoe talces all hearts by storm. I have listened to him play when his country' men have flocked around him; I have listened to him In foreign cltiei among strangers; I have heard his vlolltt laugh, cry and sing with heav-enly Jo}l-:;::yes,, ..jylth, real . bumap voices-and everywhere and In every place has he brought the public to its feet. Every one can follow and understand the feelings that are streaming out of Theobaldl's bewitched vl. olln. "Theobaldl was born in the valley of Gudbrandsdalen, and at the age ot four, with a cheap lemop-yellow violin, he began to pour out his genius. At the age ot eight he made his first Iiubllc appearance. Ole Bull was In the audience. The boy played the great masterpieces, and Ole Bull arose and, pointing to the boy, said, 'There is my sucoe^ssor.' At the age of twenty-four Theobal dl went to Hamburg, then to Nb' pies, where Kerberto pronounced him a born Paganlnl." He studied two years with Herberto and during the next six yea'rs toured Europe. Next he came to tho States undftT the ablest management, and, having toured all the largo cities over and over, he at last decided to make this country his home. Theobaldl has just' returned from a visit to his native country and un-doubtedly has fresh Inspiration for his present tour. It is an honor to have Theobaldl visit our town after his triumphal tour ot the largo cities. Let us show him we appreciate his coming with a packed house. Amnrlctm Film <;ompany.

And Harold Lloyd in comedy and the laleat Screen .Magazine. AT THE MAJESTIC David W. Griffith's magnificent spectacle, "Intolerance," opened It's local engagement at the Majestic theatre last night. The picture was shown In its entirety. Words tail to adequately describe the spectacular wonders ot "Intoler-arjpe." One may safely assert that It has never been equalled. At times It Is almost overwhelming with Its sheer spectacularism. Enormous numbers ot people are used in the play. Thousands of horses are seen in the various Babylonian battle scenes. To the casual observer it is Impossible even to roughly estimate th'b amount of money which must have been expended In tho production, but ono thing must indefinitely remain as a positive fact-that Griffith, the producer has In "Intolerance" given the world a work ot art that muet assuredly bo handed down to future generations and bo treasured by them. To adequately describe the thousand wonders seen In "Intolerance" would require page upon page. In justice to those -who have been responsible for bringing It to Lethbridge, It behooves everyone who can possibly do 00 to go to the 'Majestic tonight and see-the picture. It will remain indelibly stamped upon the memory ot all intelligent people. AT STARLAND Madge Evans and George Mac Quarrle are co-starred In the striking new World-Picture Brady-Made 'Gates of Gladness," which will be shown at the Starland theatre on Mon' day and Tuesday. In this picture Madge takes the role ot BetU Leeds, a little girl whose father Is a painter who is unable to dispose ot enough paintings to meet the needs ot his family. So, when the occasion presents itself Beth's father turns bureftr and ho is not above using Beth for the purpose ot entering the home which he has determined to rob. The situation presented when Beth's father enters the home Is surprising to say the least, and the whole pic ture is a surprising, pleasing produc tlon. "Gates of Gladness" Is more than ordinarily notable for the beauty ot Its photograpjiy arid .the general excellence ot the story.
