A very large number of spectators were attracted to His Majesty's Theatre last evening, the chief draw being Charlie Chaplin in "A Dog's Life," which crested shrieks of laughter. The ordinary programme was also screened, and this 1 included, an- educational him dealing with quaint insects, and was of a 'highly entertaining' order. The star picture was "The'^Secret of the Storm Country," a sequel to "Tess of the Storm Country." ' " Nornia Talmadge filled the leading' role, and was afforded excellent scope for emotional acting, in the story she was the daughter of an ex-.convict, who was secretly married to a young student. In order to pleas* his mother the student also married the sister of a wealthy man who despised the working class of the village. The former marriage, of course, was kept secret, and no end of complications ensued with many rare passages of pathos. Eventually the death of the luisoand brought happy release to the outcast girl and the story had a happy ending. The "Pathe Gazette' was the other item on the programme which will be repeated this evening.
