Grace Darmond The' past, present and fiitufe of motion pictures, from 'the standpoint of one of the leading actresses in them are here given by Miss Grace Darmond, one of Selig's stars. I\Iiss Darmond tells her idea of films and their standing in the world of entertainment, and also relates concisely and interestingly her own career. THE CAMERA MAN'S JOB. N. E. Edwards Seldom does the public look for the risk element in pictures further than to the daring actor, but there is another who deserves much credit in this respect— the camera man. Mr. Edwards, photographer for the Hcarst-Selig News Pictorial, here tells of a few of the experiences he has been through. THE STOLEN VOICE. Arthur Gavin, Jr. . Long and often has the question been discussed as to which sense one would preferably lose, if one must be lost. Gerald Dorville, opera star, naturally feared that of speech the most. He did not lose it — it was stolen. But the course that opened to him afterward tended to make him glad it was his voice. SCREEN GOSSIP. AI Ray 11 Hundreds of reels of the happenings in filmdom, condensed into a page of lively news. THE KING OF THE WIRE. Arthur Gavin, Jr. . . 12 A story of politics and love bound togetlier with a strong thread of adventure. The ways chosen by three young people just beginning life and where they led to later, play an important part in this narrative. Tom Stratton was a circus performer when young, and he suffered a fall — one that he was later thankful for, when he became — but it's all in the story. FILM FLAMS. Dean Bovyman . Some interesting facts and figures about pictures, their makers and those they are made for. 18 SUNDAY. Edna Sylvester Kerr 19 The struggle of a little girl brought up in the crude manner of four rough but kind lumbermen, to overcome a tragedy that occurred early in her life. Her four guardians, especially one of them, tried to lielp her, but it was a hard task. After years of her fight against [herself, the true spirit of the lumbermen comes nobly to the fore, to aid the cause of right and love. CUPID TAKES A TAXL Richard D. Taylor A new cure for the thoughtless and high-flying young man — the fastest automobile purchasable. It sounds like raising a boil to cure a pimple, but instead it was intended to act on him like vaccination of a germ to prevent that very illness. The result of the experiment will make you both laugh and sit still till you finish the stor}-. HINTS FOR SCENARIO WRITERS. Clarence J.
