Ztttiom is left an orphan at an
early age. Hct father is killed in
a gold, mine hit ha discovered.
Half an hour after learning of the
death of her husband, Zudora's
totothen a tight-rope walker with
a circus is stricken With vertigo,
falls and is killed.
Zudofa and the fortune from
the ninc, which grows to be worth
$30,000,000, are left in the
nuardianshfy of Frank Keene,
brother of Zudora's mother. Zu
dora, giving promise of great
beauty, reaches the age of 18.
The uncle, who ha3 set himself
up as a Hindu mystic and is
known ai Hassani All, determines
in his'grecd that Zudora must die
before she can have a chance to
conic into her wealth, so that it
will be left to him.
Hassam prevails upon the girl
to leave her money m his hands
for thrie years more and to say
nothing to any one about the for
tune. Further, ho sees on ob
staclo to his scheme in John
Storm, a young lawyer, for whom
Zudora has taken a fancy, and
he commands the girl to put the
man out of her mind. Storm asks
Hassam for Zudora in marriage,
but Hassam coldly refuses. Zu
dora insists that if she cannot
marri Storm she shall not marry
"Welt; well," replies Hassam,
"if you take such a s.land, I'll
compromise. Solve my next SO
cases and you can marry him;
fail in a single case and you must
Zudora, using the knoiulcdgc
gained from years of association
with her uncle, unravels a bafilina
mystery and wins her first case.
THE MY3TETIY OI' THE SPOTTED
B When the trial began it looked very
ad for John Storm. The altcrca-
ion with the decedent in court was
evlewcd, the dueling challenge, their
rcvious enmity, the twelve unac
countable hours. In the balcony Has-
lam Ali and the man Burns watched
he proceedings with something riipre
han normal interest. When the jury
finally received the judge's instruc
tions, every one conccucu mat joint
torni-was a lOat man; nothing could
ave liijn Fron the .chair.
Suddenly, up the aisle toward the
judge's desk came a veiled woman:
Stopl" she cried; "it uas I II"
Then she fainted. The judge, the
lattorncys, the reporters, the specta
tors, all roserjn-.thlsir,a4na;ccroenr.. A.
woman,!.. After the. tableau came con
fusion and chaos. The judge signed
to the jury to return to their chairs.
Storm, despftc the deputy sheriffs,
pushed' his way to the woman's side1
and 6iHy raised the veil.
"Zudora?1' He turned resolutely to
the judge. "Your honor, there is
some rnistakp. 'This young -woman
has hadmothing to do with the death
of QieriVcTth' It is utterly impossi
"Thai remains to be seen, Mr.
Storm. Return to the docket, if you
"But shq Js inn'Qccntl"
"Deputies!" called the judge sternly.
He was'sofry for Storm; but duty was
duty, none the less.
The court was eventually cleared."
Storm .was taken back to Jus cell.
Hassam Ali and Bums went, away ta'
gether, Immediately Zudora sought
the office .of the District Attorney.!
whom she jquncl liarangmngi with tne
counsel for the defense. '
"If I can convince you. two gentle
men, will that be sufficient?"' .she.
"It will." affirmed theiDistrici" At
torney. r"But why can't' you give us'
'the man's name now " he askedpetu-j
lantiy, mere was not tne Biigntest
dqubt in his mind that John Storm'
had committed the crintc. .'-DlsUic.ti
Attorneys all over the thJs fcroiid'
land have the faculty of seeing 'every
man guilty until he is proved inno
cent, which is quite the contrary to
the letter of the Jaw,
"To tell His name now would spoil
everything," declared Zudora. "I have
no evidence at this moment that wou!4
hold in'Jaw. but I'll guarantee to place
it In your, hands b'efore midnight.
You two. will' cony; secretly to my
house andI wijl secrete jrou behind
some cut'ainsandjljero you will hear
the evidence frtrtn the man's own lips."
"Very 'well," said the District At
tQiney. "But I warn you that any
Mn.d of oriental mummery will not
pass as evidence."
Zudora flushed a little, She knew
that the genera) tfubjic, held her
Utiole's vocation In centertipt. They
would never realize what a wonder

said, the mystic roUnf possessed ,1

stock of his victims before meeting
them personally He wAit'ed.
Zudora began to ask,tlnilc5S qiles'
tions. Burns eyed iier restlessly.
Suddenly she sprungthe trap. She
held up. the pencil,
"This' ia'vours. isaw vou writincr

found it. It is the s.ime ncneil that
marked the collar' of Bicnrcith in his
death struggles.", ,
Burns jumped lo his 'feet. Zudora
did likewise, throwing on the powbr
which set tliiygod Hypnos in motion.
Burns tried to look away, but could
not. Suddenly ,hc screamed and be
gan to grovel. .
"Yes, I killed bin!
He stopped, cftoked ,

full charge of eloctneity. ThcrccSyas

and fell at Zudora's feet. Tha' attor

Hassam Ali withdrew his, head, like
a cobra that had concluded not to
strike. He had lost a tool who, per
haps, had known too much. But the
significant fact remained that John
Storm was still in his way.
And Zudora had won her first case.

of a nc-mliiuto Interview the llrst she

commented upon nn nrtlclo in a thcatrlcnl
magazine in which it was alleged that

nigh Indescribable. Sho said:
"I do not believe that tho films breed
moro Immorality than any other business
would. Immorality ennnot be found In
any of the llrst-cluss studios, for there
It Is all hard work and strict business.
I have been in the dmmatlc field alt my
life, and it Is not the enso there- any
more than anynhcro else. -I thlnk;lt Is
perfectly absurd tcr say that a" manager
or director can 'make' a star. They may
get their particular favorite before (he
people for a short -time, say six months
or a ear, but, what is heard of them
after that? No, it is tho public 4pmand
that creates a star, and If thej want ou
they will mnke you the star. Irrespective
of the manager. Of coursp, cne must
htvo ability and be willing to work hard.
That nas been the trouble with 'many of
the failures they did not "have enough
experience and were brought out far too

may be. It Is only necessary to put her
name In front of n theatre and them the
public will respond. Playing for the

The ORIGINAL STUDld.
The first Edison Studio, or rather a
combination of office and studio, was
termed the ''Block Maria." It was a
very crude affair as compared with the
many studios of the present-day type. It
was about 25 by 10 feet In size, movable,
being arranged on pivots so that Its posi
tion could be changed to follow the sun.
This studio was located at Orange, N. J.
WOMEN AS CAMERA MEN.
Tho statement has boon widely cir
culated that genuine war pictures are
impossible to get, that mobilization ma
neuvers and llbrailes furnish practically
all of the war news In films. That this
is contrary to the truth is proven every
week In the Pathe projection room in
Jersey City when the newly arrived
negatlVes.are shown. Some of tho battle
field views are so horrible that It is im
passible (o make use of them. Piles of
unburied dead ready to be cremated, long
burial trenches filled with the mangled
remains "of what once were men, and
tangled heaps of human flotsam and Jet
sam of the conflict are all shown. Such
realism Is, of course, unadapted for pubjlc
War pictures are, It is true, very diffi
cult to get, but not so mucn so as in tho
early days of the war It is interesting to
note that, owing to the absence of most
able-bodied Frenchmen on the firing line,
that Pathe has been driven to the neces
sity of using women aa camera men. The
sight of these Paths "camera women,"
trudging along with camera, and helper,
has become a fairly common sight In
Paris. It Is reportd that they have
proven themselves q(ilck to learn, reliable
and competent, and certainly those who'
bxcampuny tho army for tne, patpe News
haye shown plenty of .nerve as well. tIn
Several Instances they have been able-to
get to places where camera men were not
stowed, widen goes to show that human
nature Is the same everywhere, and that
a pretty feminine face and pleasant smile
have a wonderful potency in overcoming
