HIS MAJESTY'S THEATRE.

The management of His Majesty's Theatre was accorded a fair share-of public patronage last night on the occasion of. the tri-weekly change of programme, which in every respect compares with the best of its predecessors. The " Pathe Gazette" contained the usual budget of recent happenings in all parts of the world, one scene of partioular interest being that depicting the Prime Minister (the Right Honl W. F. Massey) pinning to the breasts of New Zealand soldiers decorations of honour won in the great war. This was followed by one of the most- beautifully tinted travel pictures screened locally for a long time. It unfolded to the onlookers a delightful trip through some of the most picturesaue river and mountain scenery in Wales. The' sights of interest were •clearly depicted and watched with interest. A comedy dealing with the. unenviable experiences of an artist and his model added pleasing variety and created much merriment. ' The' star attraction was a powerful society drain a, " By Right of Purchase," featuring Norina Talmadge and Eugene O'Brien. It unfolded the story of a girl who married for money, and if at the end of two years lie had not won her love she was to have her freedom. A worthless man came on the scene, and by false flattery and .untruths caused an estrangement between the young couple. Subsequently the truth of the position was discovered, and all ended in happiness. The programme will be repeated to-night.
