^CHARLIE CHAPLIN in"ADOfiS LIFE"
j^     hi5 FlKSt fUUt-ON  PgUAR PICTURE
Charlie Chaplin makes his litli.
screen debut in the most ambitious
effort of his career, entitled "A Dog's
Life," which will be tho attraction nt
the llo ilo Theatre on Tuesday April
15 th.
"A Dog's Life" is Chaplin's fir.it
production under his million dollar
contract with the First National Exhibitor's Circuit. Close to eight weeks
have been required to film tho jtory,
und while it is a trifle longer than the
usual two-reel subject, forty thousand
feet of celluloid wore used in carrying
out tho idea. It is the star's original
creation.
The policy that has governed all of
the CbRplii- produoMons- for »ue ntv;t
two years lias been employed iu the
filming of "A Dog's Life." That is* to
say, no idea of tbo nature of tlie story,
beyond the bare announcement of the
title, was made public until a week
prior to the definite release date.
Chaplin lias extended himself to the
utmost degree of his ability with the
result that he has produced a swift-
moving vehicle tilled with rapid-fire
comedy situations, with added touches
of pathos, creating a wholesome and
human story. Edna Purviance, tho
comedian's beautiful leading woman,
has been given generous scope in
which to display her talent, while the
rest of tlie company find many opportunities to shine iu conjunction with
the star.
Charlie Chaplin's recipe for making
a successful comedy is: First, select a
funny situation; then build a series
of tho most ridiculous adventures
that can be conceived around this
dominating Idea; and, finally, enact
the resulting plot in the most painstaking and serious manner possible.
Tho result -if Chaplin himself has
entire charge of proceedings—is sure
to be a memorably humorous occasion,
lint that little word "if" has proved
a veritable mountain in the path of
numerous imitators,   For without the
well-known Chaplin personality to
add sparkle to the brew, it will seem
as flat nnd tasteless as the various
denatured substitutes for liquid refreshment that can be found in all
"dry" territories.

Lady Patricia Ramsay, formerly the Princess of Connaught, who
recently became the bride ot Commander Ramsay, R.N., Is an ardent
devotee ot golt. Their honeymoon Is being spent at her beautiful
estate just outBlde of Loudon.
At a District Meeting held some
time ngo In Nanaimo, a secretary was
appointed In the person of Mr. Hart-
Icy, a gentleman whohas had considerable expcrlcnco In Y.M.C.A. work.
At his call n meeting was held In
tho Council Chambers Inst Monday
evening, when a number ot citizens
Interested In tho welfare ot the boys
und young men of the city, met and
laid thc foundations ot that which, It
Is earnestly hoped, will bo a permanent institution iu our midst.
Mr. Hartley gave an address lu
which he outlined the general work
and emphasized the Important features of tho organization. In the very
near future all the necessary committees will be appointed and an appeal will be made to the people of this
community for their endorsatlon aud
support.
There are two things necessary tor
tbe success of any enterprise--first,
the vision and, second, the work. We
all have the consciousness of the
great need of such a work In this
city. Let the vision grow, and there
will also grow the consciousness ot
the need of service. The vision is
inspiring and the need for all to serve
Is  imperative.
The Y.M.C.A. and the Y.W.C.A. are
today International institutions, and
their aim is the well-being of the
people along physical, moral, and
finally, spiritual lines. We all know
of the good work done at the front
among our heroes by the Y.M.C.A.
These Institutions, with their splendid helpfulness are come to stay.
They are a part and an ever-Increasing part of our national life, and with
such alms and objectives which are
fundamental to them are deserving
of the most generous support. In this
connection, a Red Triangle Campaign
Fund of the Y.M.C.A., In conjunction
with the Y.W.C.A., is being planned
to take place throughout Canada ln
the month of May, from the 5th to the
9th. A large sum of money is required
by the National Councils of the two
organizations for their extensive work
this year.
The Y.M.CA. Is seeking to extend its
work in this and other communities,
and in this connection there has been
organized a country Y.M.C.A., known
as the Nanaimo District, the district
taking in all places of Importance
from Duncan to Cumberland and
Courtenay.

REAL  ENTERTAINMENT IN
BAIRNSFATHER'S  PLAY
"The Romance of Old Bill," as related in the film of "The Botter 'Ole,"
is a stirring story containing a strong
vein of humor and a message to all
who see It. Old Bill Is played by
Charles Rock, iu whose experienced
hands Balrnstuther's character Is admirably presented. The striking charm
about these master studies Is that they
are so thoroughly unstudied. The
characters reek—that Is a sound word
to UBe about the trenches—of truth.
We see Old Bill, that philosopher of
the trenches; Alt and Bert, those life
studies In khakhl. the comedy ot the
uniform. Khaki and cachlnatlons is
the motto for "The Better 'Ole." It
is better than any play. Only a percentage of people have seen the legitimate version. The screen version
begins with a prologue In which we
vision Rouget de L'Isle singing the
"Marseillaise," we see the "Three
Musketeers," of Dumas, "one for threo
and three for one." These dissolve
Into our modern trio of warriors-
Old Bill, Alt and Bert.

nnd 115 other workers. The greatest
care has been taken to see that the
projected Methodist work shall not
conflict with tho established work of
oilier denominations, hut shall care
for those who ure not ut present
members of tmy other churches."
The Methodists mean to refrain
from proselyting work, not only al
home, but also abroad; for they say.
in what seems to us to be a fine
spirit:
"It depends upon the Methodists to
make their great work tend toward a
strengthening of the friendly feeling
between tlie American Protestants and
the established churches of tbe countries in which they are working, and
to use their genuine democracy and
modern methods of social work as a
binding link between the New World
and the Old."
Now il is one thing to conceive the
vision of raising and spending eighty
million dollars and It Is quite another
to make the plan both for raising and
spending the money in a businesslike
fashion. Any man who is accustomed
to large financial affalrH and their
administration would be astonished
and impressed, we think, with tbe
book which the Methodist Centenary
Committee has just published containing tlie results of the survey which
the Committee has for two years been
making of the field and the needs.

What Phonograph Shall I Buy?"
How many times, when the subject of purchasing
a phonograph or talking machine has come up, have
you asked yourself this question !
The  Edison  tone test answers it for
completely, convincingly.
Over two million music lovers have been present
when this test was being made; and they have
realized, as you will realize, that the New Edison
alone can actually re-create the human voice and
the music of human-played instruments.
It is all-important that you hear
Tfie NEW EDISON
"The Phonograph with a Soul"
because it is the only Instrument that re-creates the singer's voice so
faithfully that the human ear cannot distinguish the rendition of the
artist from that ot the New Edison.
The wise way to choose your phonograph is to have the several
makes of phonographs and talking machines sent to your home on
tiiil» where you can make direct comparisons among them, and then
decide which one you would like to keep—which one you think you
would enjoy hearing as much five years from now as you do to-day.
Be your own salesmen. Sell a phonograph to yourself. We will
gladly send a New Edison to your home for the purpose, without
o'[>lig.ition on your part.

Why Telephne Numbers Should
be Given Slowly, one
Digit at a Time.
Within reach of each operator are rows of small
holes called "jacks." Through these the connections
are made with flexible cords, the tips of which are
inserted in the "jacks" corresponding to numbers
called.
Here a connection is being made with 1-2-2-3.
The operator must work with care and precision. Most
important of all is that she shall understand correctly
the connection desired. Numbers rattled off hurriedly
are often incorrectly given.
It will help greatly if you will give the number
in this way: one-two-two-three, speaking slowly and
distinctly.

CHARLIE CHAPLIN'S  ART
King Baggot, (ho veteran dramatic
favorite of the screen, took his six-
year-old hopeful to nee tlie lirst episode of the serial thriller in which he
Is being starred, and after the performance questioned the child as follows: "Welt, son, how did you enjoy
your daddy's acting?" The junior
Baggot turned a candid look upon his
father. "J like Charlie Chaplin much
better," he replied. The reason for
this natural popularity can be understood by anyone fortunate enough to

"HANDS UP!"
The above-named serial is the one
which the management of the Ilo Ilo
Theatre have arranged with the Film
Exchange to follow the "House of
Hate."
"HandB Up" is a Western Feature—
the first put on by the Pathe Company—with such an atmosphere, full
of thrilling deeds, feats of horsemanship and hairbreadth escapes. The
scenery is wild and rugged, as the
play is staged in the mountains of
.Mexico and California.
Ruth Roland, one of the moBt famous and popular of all motion picture
stars, after a year's vacation, is again
taking one of the leading parts in this
play. Other well known actors, such
as Eastor Walters and George Ulb-
burdt, are included ln this, so tlie
cast is a large and expensive one.
This Is a Humdinger I It will keep
you on the edge ot your seat.
Remember! It follows "The House
of Hate.

Another extraordinary picture will
appear at the Ilo Ilo Theatre on April
22nd, known as "The Better 'Ole," an
all-British wonder film from the famous stage success, "The Romance of
Old Bill," now making a tremendous
hit at New York, Toronto and Montreal. This ls the first motion picture
to depict the indefatigable carry-on
spirit of the great British army, bringing to life those three famous musketeers: "Old Bill, Bert and Alt," in the
greatest cinema of the day. This is
not an ordinary motion picture—tt is
a message from the boys who spent
long years ln the trenches, under terrific bombardment, but always fighting with the grim determination that
final victory might be assured for the
Allies. Admission: General, 50c. box
seats, 75c.
