"An Hour of Terror" Is the title of the drat American release on Its new Wednesday schedule. It la an Indian tale, replete with thoae features demanded In Western stories. Away oft* on the frontier the lonesome rail- road agent pointed out a direction to the prospectors and went Inside. Two Indians promptly cut the wire with tomahawks and later killed one of the prospectors. An In- dian uprising closely followed, and a great ranch was given over to the flames and ma- rauders. Two women and two ranchers reached the shelter of the railroad station only to find the wire cut There Is a battle, savages lire the little station, and. with cart- ridges nearly gone, the ranchers held the re- mnlnliig two for the women. But the news hnd carried and. while the women stood with bared breasts tor the merciful bullet, help rnmc, eliding that awful hour. W. D Emerson Is one of the American Company's new producers. Mr. Emerson completed "An Hour of Terror," and will hereafter handle the third Western for this company each week. Mr. Emerson was for- mcr'y of the Sollg Polyscope Co. LUBIN NOTES.

The big market house at the Northwest corner of Twenty-seventh Street and Glrard Avenue, Philadelphia, has been purchased by a syndicate represented by Louis II. Co- han. The sum of $60,000 will be expended In Its reconstruction Into a vaudeville and moving picture thentre. The market house occupies a lot 101 by 118 feet, and w«s purchased for $50,000. CLARA WILLIAMS. Clara Williams Is Uic crnck female rough rider of tbe Lubln Company. Miss Williams does not affect the dress or mannerisms of the cowboy girl; on the contrary, from her personality none would take her for a rider, but see her In u photoplay picture and sai- ls a whirlwind. In a recent release, "It Happened In the Hills," the picture Bhows some riding that Is terrific. A half dozen of the Lubln cowboys are after her, but It is evident that she Is outpacing them all. In mounting, her horse Is off as soon as her foot touches Che stirrup, and la several paces sherd before tbe rider Is settled In the saddle. Miss Williams, who plays the heroine of the Btory, has plenty to no in the picture, and will be well remembered by those who see It for her handsome horsemanship.
