"JUDITH OF BETHULIA" AT THE EMPRESS A fascinating work of high artistry, "Judith of Hethulla" will! not only rank as an achleveinent in this country, but wi'ii make foreign producers sit up and take notice. It has a signal and Imperative message, and the technUine disjdnyed throughout an infinity of detail, embracing even the delicate film tinting and toning, niark.s an encouraging step In the new art. Ancient In story and settings, it is modern in penetrative interpretation -it is a vivid history ot one phase of the time it concorna, and is redemptive as well as rcvelalive, a lesson from one of vital struggles that made and unmade nations as well as individuals, yet it is not without that inspiring influence that appeals powerfully to human seusf; of justice. This masrorpiece appears at the Kmjiress ne.\t .Monday and Tuesday. EMPRESS OF IRELAND DISASTER COMING TO STARLAND The Empress of Ireland ,1ihk gone the way of the Titanic. She has gone to her grave 'leaving a trail of sorrow behind her. Hundreds of human hearts and homes are in mourning for the loss of dear companions I and friends. The universal sympathy j which is written in every face and heard in every voice, proves that man Is more than the beasts that perish. It is evidence of the Divine in humaii-iity. Why should we care? There is 'no reason in the world 'why we should j care, there Is something in us tliat is dirtcrent from lime and carbon and phosphorous: something that makes us mortals, able to suffer together: "For wo liave all of us a human heart." For two days only, oomniencin.g with an afternoon performance on -Monday, the public of Letlibridge will have their only op))ortunity of 'witnessing in moving pictures most of the important events before and after this terrible disaster. Such a moving picture as this great special is one that is not offered every day, and will without a doubt be witnessed by every man, 'woman and child in this city. There will be no raise in the admission prices net -Monday, when this gigantic picture will he offered for the first time at Starlaud. "THE SHEPHERD OF THE HILLS" AT THE SHERMAN (By Argus) The story of "The Shepherd of the Hi'ils" is an interesting one, and it I met v.-ith an interpretation at the Sherman Theatre last night, which may be well described as creditable. yrhe play is a wholesome one, with the flavor of the backwoods in which the plot is laid. It is more or less a simple story, with nothing in the way of tense situations, and the playera went easily through their parts. Flitting in and o\it in the various scenes was the mysterious figure of a half-witted boy, Pete, and the character was very wfe'il taken by .Miss Marion Milton. AVlth a play of the description there was naturally the lawless element, with such figures as Wash Gibbs. a semi-desperado, and Joe of the StilUiouse gang. These supplied the fi'illp whioli the local coloring demanded. Baniel Howett, the shepherd, 'was well treated by Mr. T. Fitzgerald, and jNIiss Gertrude Ritchie gave a pleasing impersonation of Sammy l.ane, the backwoods girl, 'who was happy in discovering not too late what really cotv stltnted true manhood, wiieii she threw over her city fiance for the man reared amidst tlie wild surroundings of nature. In the latter character, -Mr. I-.onls nanisdell, Grant Matthews, jr.. was forceful and mascu-Mue. The performance on the whole was attractive, and by no means devoid of interest. 1 Oc-EMPSESS-15c "COMEDY AND TRAGEDY" A Revival of the Celebrated Edison Drama in Two Parts ESSANAY "CUPID AND THREE" COMEDY l'^^- "THE BALJ.YirOOS" "JUDITH OF BETHl LIA" MONDAY AND TUESDAY Major Gustav H.
