ENTERTAINMENTS.

HIS MAJESTY'S THEATRE.

"Tho Tenth Case" was the star item on the bil] at His Majesty's Theatre last evening, which featured June Klyidge. The picture had many interesting features- to commend it, particularly the strong cast of characters and excellent emotional acting. The story was simple, and was that of a girl who married a rich man to save her father, as sho thought, who was in the clutches of a siren, and who had squandered his daughter's money. Into the happy couple's life came a nephew of the husband who was also in the siren's net, and who exhausted his uncle's patience in demands for financial assistance. Then came a plot denied by the.siren, where the young man was found in th& wife's room. The inevitable divorce proceedings followed, and a decree was granted on the grounds of circumstantial evidence. From tiiis out the picture was of absorbing interest, until finally the wife re-established her innocence, and a happy re-uniqn followed. The "Topical Budget" dealt with a number of official war subjects, chiefly in various means of army transport. A laughable Keystone was the other item on the programme, which will be screened this evening.
