Seven arc world's greatest Western dramas, fea- turing Q. M. Anderson, the photoplay star of two hemispheres; six are captivating comedies, presenting those famous Esuanay comedians, and foor arc wonderfully good dramas from the Chicago studio. The ever Increasing .popularity of the "Broncho Billy Western series' has eaused Mr. Anderson to almost double his. output, and his millions of admirers are getting' Just twice the number of these feature- Alms now than ever before. The Essanay Co. are now issuing three-sheet posters of tbelr Saturday Western releases, featuring Mr. .Anderson in. his world famous characterisations. -The posters are beauti- fully lithographed in four full colors, and may be ordered direct from the exchanges or from the Morgan Lithograph Co., Cleveland. These, in addition to the regular one-sheet posters issued with releases, make splendid lobby dis- plays for the "Essanay nights." featured by exhibitors throughout the country. Fbancis X. Bushman, the popular leading man of the Essanay Eastern Stock Co., ex- perienced an amusing- yet rather disagree- able experience recently during tbe filming of "White Roses," a gripping dramatic sub- ject released July 4. Mr. Bushman was play- ing the role of a convict and was ctandlng, manacled, between two guards on a railroad station platform while the camera operator was loading his camera preliminary to faking the scene. Mr. Bushman Is an ortlst at "make-up," nnd his disguise ns the hang-dog ronvlct was perfect. Suddenly an old lady, evidently from the country, chanced to pais with her son, some fifteen years of age. At the sight of Bushman she stopped, stern of face and steely of eye. For a moment she eyed him up and down, then turned to her boy. "There.' John," she said, "let that aw- ful creature there be a lesson to you and don't never touch strong liquor. It always leads to a prison cell 1" And with an angry flirt of her head she swept on down the platform, dragging the gaping boy by the hand. For a moment Bushman and the others stared after tier, then all broke Into roars of laughter. Bushman declares lie has had many varied experiences In bis life, but this one takes the prue. Tm Kssanat Co.'h release for July 5, "The Butterfly Net," is a delicious Summer Idyl, Invo'ving International complications most charming. The exterior Bcenes, taken near one of Michigan's famous Summer re- sorts, sre marvels of scenic beauty, and the production Is marited throughout by the most excellent photography. The plot affords Francis X. Bushman and Beverly Bayne splendid roles. - s LIFE OF BUFFALO BUI FILM CONTROVERSY. BUFFALO BILL APPEALS. 1USTRAUM B. P. SHOWS. «• »• ^ m «?.M™I™ _ Col. Wm.

Is a split reel, containing two highly amusing farces, "Tbe Gay Deceivers" and "Leah Learns to Dance." George Gambardelll. in the role of Tony Stout, apparently a sedate married rr'cn. end bis son In-law, Fritz, have a high old time flirting with two coquettish young milliners unknown to each other, and are mightily surprised when they chance to meet at the home of the girls. Under the cir- cumstances they sre obliged to overlook their digressions ana swear to stick to each other through thick and thin. It soon develops that their mutsul loyalty Is stretched to the utmost when, on tbe following day, the charming young milliners on calling at the house to deliver hate to tbe wives of the gay Lotharios, find their recreant sweethearts there, and on discovering that they are mar- ried men there Is a general scene of excite- ment, and a battle royal takes place. Tbe fun Is fast and furious, and the picture will get many laughs. The second comedy on tbe reel, "Leah Learns to Dance," Is one In which the ever popular Clues comedienne, Leah, Is shown as a novice at tbe terpslcho- rean art, and nfter engaging lessons with a lactones dancing-master, becomes so enthused nnd develops such tireless energy that at a bal' which she attends she sets such a pace that those partners unfortunate enough to aantt with her arc completely done up. Thin subject Is one big laugh from start to finish. The Eclipse release of Wednesday, July 10, Is one of those powerful dramas for which this splendid and talented organiza- tion Is noted. A number of actors of the highest class are seen In this picture, tbe title of which Is "A Mysterious Case. 1 ' A poor Inventor calls on his brother In nn en- deavor to borrow money to carry on his ex- periments, but Is refused. After he leaves the house his brother, In some mysterious manner. Is seriously Injured. Of course, tie Inventor, having been seen leaving the house, Is suspected and arrested. The story and action from this point Is very Intense, and tbe Interest cannot fall to be sustained In following the development of the plot to find out in what manner the brother became In- jured ; how the Inventor's daughter, In her official position as telegraph operator, is obliged to convey the message ordering her father's arrest, and finally, how the mystery Is xolved. The plot of the story Is well sus- tained, and tbe acting consistent throughout. The Cln-es players will be seen Saturday, July 13, In a nlghly Interesting light drama, entitled "For Her Father's Sake." Dorothy Ferrari, as the daughter of the marquise, plays the leading role In a very convincing manner, while Lorenzo Lupl enacts the father with dignity and reserve. The daughter, for her father's sake, expresses her willingness to sacrifice herself and marry the son of her father's creditor, on the condition that ' the note held against her father, and which he Is unable to pay. Is canceled. The cred- itor's BOn, who truly loves the girl, on learn- ing that she Is willing to marry him only as a bargain, refuses the offer and reproaches his father for making such an arrangement. A little later, however. It develops that the girl finds she really has a liking for the young man and misses hlB former attentions. In a way that only lovers know, tbe young people get together and make a little bar- gain all their own. The story Is amusing as well as Interesting, and Bplendldly acted In scenes of beautiful settings for which this company Is becoming well known. ■ ■ SELIG PICTURES GREAT POLO MATCH.

Hobart Bosworth. himself a crack polo player probably has the distinction of being the only moving picture croducer In the world who hae had three real English lords working for him at one time as supers. Lord Tweedmouth Lord Alsstalr Gdwer (son of the Duke of Suther- land) and Lord Inncs-Kerr, who was with Cent Beesley. of the Horse Guards, all sre seen in this game.
