| PLAZA PtCTUBKS. Tn addition to the st<ar picture ' Trilby,' which iias be'-n drawing full houses at. the Plaza this week, and which will be shown for tho next three davs. the sterling comedy 'At Three. O'C'look ' will be screened. This, in ordinary circumstances, would be tho leading picture nf tlm programme, so its inclusion with i •Trilby' makes this week-end change par- j tieulai'ly attractive. '.['he story is ex- ! tvemely tunny, it bein.-j that of a man I lit is Ford. >t-'-rliii/.*i wlio is disappointed In hive, and in cnnsofpic-nce resolves to I suicide. iTc fiiuls his pluck or ! Willi tpowor insuflifient, however, r..v.<\ j finally calls in tho aid of the Suicide Club j to do the job for him. The time for his | death is fixed for , 7 . o'clock, and all tho I necessary arrangements are made. but. just as the hired assassin is about to strike, his ' sweetheart appeal's, and promises to be i ipiod. Thu« the aspect is changed, and Sterling, who previously had made valiant efforts to brine; about sell-destruction, now exercises all his powers to keep himself very much alive. It will 'no. seen ! that the situations mako for mirth, and the comedy should be one of the beat. A comic entitled "A First-class Cook' tells how tho new cook and an arriving guest are mistaken one for the other, with ludicrous results. Views of Ejj\pt will bff of more than ordinary interest now, and the latest war budget is bound to be | appreciated. j ! KING FDWARTr THFATRF.

Tho love of the artist for tho daughter •of hU benefactor is replaced by his affection for a beautiful bare-footed ifirl, who keeps th« lock on tho river. There is rivalry, of course, between tho two girls, rxd some interesting situations follow, coiichidins with a tragic ending for one and marriage and luappinecss for the other. Patrons ot pieture-hou.s& have r.ow e-ome! tc- look forward with keen expectation to see if a Keystone comedy picture is included in the programme, fne management have recognised this fact, and have included in to-day's new programme 'He Towed th-e Ladies,' in which j the celebrated Keystone players are-aeon at their Other pictures are: ' New York Poli-e Department Carnival,' 'Andy Learns To Swim,' and 'Path© Gazette.'
