been more than repeating its former
successes. During her stay in New
York last season Miss Adams was
forced to shelve all her other works
in favor of "The Little Minister" and
instead of giving it for three weeks?
she had to give it for nine. There
was little doubt that the play could
have duplicated its original run of
a year in New York, such was the
favor with which it was greeted.
Miss Adams is due at the Academy
of Music on Thursday, November 23,
and it is in "The Little Minister" that
she is to be seen. In the comedy the
actress will' again enact Lady Babbie,
the fun-loving young woman who
caused the little m:nlster of the
church in Thrums to fall in love with
her without his ever suspecting that
she was other than. a gypsy and not
a fine lady. Surrounding the player
are a number of well known players.

BLANCHE SWEET IN "THE
Blanche Sweet will be seen at the
Grand tomorrow, in the Jesse L.
Lasky production of "The-Storm," a
thrilling Paramount drama written
especially for her by Le'ghton Os
mun, and produced for the Lasky Co.,
by Frank Reicher.
Miss Sweet has becrn seen in many
roles, but in "The Storm" she appears
as a half wild, fun-loving daughter of
a retired professor who is so sub
merged in his studies that he permits
istry. The two men discover Natalie, !
who is more or less a child of nature, !
'and they both fall in love with her. j
Fielding being called back to the city
oh business, leaves a clear field for
Avery. While engaged in teaching j
religion to Natalie, the two gradually i
fall in love. One time they are ma- J
rooned over night by a storm in a
hut on an island. "Natalie, the hexM
morning, realises that Avery does not V
love her, and refuses to marry him.
He returns to the city and is ordained vdj
"nto the ministry, while Natalie, with
her secret, returns to her father. i
Fielding returns the next summer,
falls in love with Natalie, and his
proposal of marriage is finally accep-:
teck His friends, Avery, is called
upon to preside' at the wedding. ;
