The Palace.


The Palace. attractions are being booked at the Palace just now. On Monda?. next a fine production will be shown, which will be wel- corned by the reading public, especially Thomas Hardy's great novel, Far from the Madding Crowd," a picture adapted and produced by Larry Trimble, and featuring Miss Florence Turner. The mere fact that so great a novel as this and by so skilled and far-famed an author as Thomas Hardy should be produced as a picture-play is of sufficient importance to war- rant the keenest interest both from readers and. cine-goers. The cast is as follows —Bathsheba, • Florence Turner; Sergent Troy. Campbell Gul- lan; Farmer Boldwood, Malcolm Cherry; Fanny Robin, Marion Grey; Lyddie, Dorothy Rowan; Gabriel Oak, Henry Edwards; -and the dog Jean. In addition to this great picture another episode of The Broken Cbin" will be shown, being the llth of the series. Also a- fine drams" entitled "The Blood Test will be in the pro- gramme-an engrossing storv of a fatal error, which leads a man to betray a friend's trust. The Gazette of latest news and other pictures will complete one of the finest entertainments in pictures. On Thursday the first of a fine series of ex- elusive dramas will be shown. "Cora" is the title of the picture, an emotional play in four parts by Fred de Gressac, featuring the young j and gifted aorta-ess, Miss Emily Stevens, m the' title role. Here is a drama of heart throbs- starting in the tenements, rising to the heights.. of unhoundillg affluence, through the medium of a wonderful voice, an-cl cul-h-iiiiatlng in her be- trothal to a fameus artist for whom she once j posed. The story is unusual, and will hold the' 1 attention from the beginning to the end. AI! 1 other fine picture of ,t lighter character is "Miss Freckles," a comedy-drama featuring Miss Ruth Stonehouse. Miss Freckles is the tor- ror of Hogan's Alley, and she dreams that she I has been left a lot of money, with the result she and her family move into better quarters and mix with society, with the result that Giv- :1 ing to the new and unknown conditions of "hi-b life," the most amusing scenes are which will keep the most serious rippling with laughter. A number of other amusing and interesting pictures, with the Gazette, wil; provida programme of great merit. As usual the children are catered for on Saturday morn- ings at 10.15. We might remind our readers that the woll- derful picture "The Miracle of Life, or the Divinity of Motherhood," is now showing at the Palace during the remainder of this week.
