The Devil't Daughter.
A William Fox rhotoplay supreme.
"As this man has (lone to me, so
shall I do to all men. From now on
my heart is Ire, my pas:'!on consuming
Ce. Let men b.-ware.
The beautiful but evil Devil's daugh
ter utters these words when Lugl, her
lover deserts her.
From that moment her progress is
mllostoned by the blasted careers of
her many ndmirers.
Fate throws in her path T,ueio Sat
tello. a brilliant young sculptor. She
poses for him as a Sphinx. The sculp
tor's wife Is driven almost Insane by
jealousy. Driven Insane by the Dev
il's Daughter and her sinister fascl
nalion, Luclo attempts suicide.
He is nursed back to health by his
faithful wife. The Devil's Daughter's
evil career suffers a fearful end in
a scene of overwhelming power and
Bolh Miss Ridgely and Mr. Reid for
some time have been members of the
Lasky organization and have won
great popularity in Paramount thea
ters. In "The Golden Chance" these
two exceptional artists will be seen to
their best advantage. Miss Rldgeley
as a poor seamstress Ruddenly con
fronted with an opportunity to enjoy
for a brief period the luxuries of life
and to forget her own poverty grasps
at the chance. Cinderella like, she
meets a financial prince, Wallace Reid
who falls in love with 'her. Circum
stances compel the seamstress to hide
her real identity and refuse her gold
en chance. Subsequently, however,
these complications are overcome.
Replete with dramatic action, tense
situations and exciting episode, the
VRagnmuffin" contains nn earnest and
emphatic plea for universal life oppor
tunity. Wm. C. DcMllle, the author
of this photoplay, is one of America'
leading dramatists lie has tr oated
the subject of environment in a start
ling, original, and dramatic manner.
Jenny as portrayed by nianche Sweet,
from a lowly beginning overcomes
life's greatest temptations through an
Inward struggle of reformation.
"The Girl And The Game"
Frolicking In the park at a seaside
resort, Helen, the little daughter of
old General Holmes, ex-army officer
and railroad man, is imperiled by a
swiftly approaching locomotive.
Thanks to the bravery of an eight
year old urchin, who snatches her
from the rails, Helen Is saved from
Years later, Helen canters to the
Signal station to meet her father re
turning from a business trip. Coming
down the mountain grade, the brakes
of a heavy freight train become dis
ordered. Helen leaps astride her
horse, Rocket. Spurring the animal
on, she heads him straight for the rail
road bridge, thinking that she can
rross and throw a switch that will di
vert the runaway freight onto an un
used siding. On she gallops nnd is
halfway across the bridge when the
huge span opens. Summoning all her
courage, Helen rides headlong to the
brink; then still astride her horse,
she plunges .from the height, into the
swirling waters below. Horse and
rider disappear for a moment, then
strike out bravely for the opposite
shore. The bridge is slammed back
inlo position. Helen gallops madly
up the cinder bed, and with all her
strength, throws the switch, and the
huge freight, diverted, crashes into
a stream of empty box cars as her fa
ther's train thunders by in safety.

On the Other Islands
The Kauai chamber of commerce,
after Investigating the non-appointment
of Mr. and Mrs. H. C. Brown as
principal and teacher in the Walmca
school, has adopted a resolution ask
ing that the two teachers be appointed
again. The Kauai commercial body
says that the reasons of the school de.
pnrtnient are trivial and not substant
iated. It is understood that a spirit
of Insubordination is given as the
cause of the failure to re-appoint the
two teachers, but. Superintendent Kin
ney has thus far not made public the
reasons which ho gave the Kauai
SUGAR ESTIMATES REDUCED
Most of the sugar plantations on
windward Hrxwnli have just announced
revised estimates of this year's crop,
showing n decided drop in previous
estimates. Olaa has reduced the est
imate from 26.300 tons to 22,000.
Brewer & Company estimates Pepee
keo crop will be 20 percent less than
1915; Hakalau's, 11 percent; Hilo's 16
percent ;. Onomea's 26; and Honomu's,
27 percent. The announcement was
followed by a general slump in the
stocks of these plantations. Olaa
dropped sharply from 23 1.8 to 19 1-2,
and will possibly sell still lower.
NO HYPHEN FOR PREACHER
"In case of war with Great. Britain
I would not. hesitate to take up arms In
behalf of the United States."
This waa the declaration of the Rev.
George Laughton, pastor of the First
Foreign Church of Hilo, before Judge
Quinn, in the chambers of the Fourth
Circuit Court, last week when he ap
peared to secure his final naturaliza
tion papers. Mr. Laughton was born
In England .
GIRL WHO IS MAKING
GOOD AS SINGER
"Peggy" Center, Honolulu's young
soprano singer, who won the favor of
Mme. Nellie Melba a few months ago
at a private appearance here has
made a pronounced hit with her first
rublie concert in Australia.
She sang at the big Town Hall In
Melbourne on the evening of June 27,
as a pupil of the famous Melba and
scored a great success.
On the following day her mother,
Mrs. David Center, received the fol
"Proud of Peggy's great success.
Miss Center will continue her stud

INTERESTING ART EXHIBITION
A large number of Maui people have
been much Interested during the past

now on view at the Maul Hotel. Mr.
Christmas came to Maui several
months ago. and during that time he J
has made quite a number of studies
of various scenic points about the
Island. He seems to have grasped
the peculiarities of coloring and at
mosphere of the Islands with unus
ual fidelity. A number of the paint
ings are of scenes In the South Amer
ican Andes mountains, his "El Cristo
del Front era" being one of (he most
striking of this type.

ors in a class of forty-three members.
