(Tonight at Washington Park Airdrome.)
It was In the early spring of 151 that
Boyd Pojton came home to Mobile after
his first cruise as an officer of the United
States navy. Coming home to Mobile
meant a very great deal to Boyd. . It
meant coming back to his father, to his
brother, and to his mother: but. above
all. it means coming back to Mary An
nan. Mary Annan was divided in her
affections between Boyd Peyton and
Robert Darrow. She liked and admired
them both so much that It made i her
heart bleed to think ofglvlng up either
for the sake of the other. But before
Boyd had been long In Mobile, a love
for a new ldo", sprang up In Mary's
heart, which completely overshadowed
her feeling for both men.
The name of this new Idol was the
Southern cause. After jears of misun
derstanding and bitterness, the Southern
States had at last decided, to sever the
bonds which held them In the Union.
Mary, a Southerner, welcomed the rup
ture So. too. did all the other loyal
citizens of Mobile. AIL. that Is. but Bold
Pevton. Ills love for the South was more
than conterbalanced by his loe for the
country, and his duty as an officer of the
Vnlted States navy. At her birthday
party. Mary Annan, rising in answer to a
toast, bade none to drink to her who did
not love her. and forbade any to lov her
who did not love the South. Boyd drank
the toast After the dinner, Mary, be
lieving that Bojd would enlist In the
Southern cause, promised to marry him.
That night the joung officer suffered
tortures of Indecision. On the one side
was Mary, on the other nothing but that
ugly ord duty. If he chose that, he
would lose with Mary the love and re
spect of, family and friends everything
that seemed desirable. But in the face
of all temptation, when Boyd arose the
next morning he was firmly resolved to
follow the bitter road of duty and
honor. When the local company of
militia came to -the house before break
fast, and announced to Boyd that they
had elected him their captain, he "told
them that he was and alnas would" be,
loyal to the government to which he had
sworn allegiance. In the face of the
horrified remonstrance of his family and

Mary. Boyd remained steadfast In his
decision. So,- even while he was beln-f
cast forth from his father's house, Mary
threw herself Into Darrow's arms, and
promised to marry him when he return
ed from the war. But Mary rerretted
her decision, for In the days that fol
lowed love for Boyd grew and grew In
her heart- At last, when she felt that
she could no longer honorably keep si
lence, she wrote to Darrow, breaking
their engagement. Darrow got Mary's let
ter on the eve of the battle of Chlcka
mauga. He opened it smiling, read It
and went forth to die like the brave man
and honest gentleman he was. His heart
was already dead before the kindly bul
let found him.
As the cruel years dragged on Mary
learned to repent bitterly of her girlish
desire for war and Its attendant deeds
of glory and bravery- Besides Darrow,
her father had fallen fighting for the
cause, and Beverly, her young brother,
the last of the Annan line, was stationed
in Fort Morgan, In Imminent peril from
the guns of the Union fleet, which was
threatening the Confederate forts and
fleet la Mobile Bay. In the terrible bat
tle which resulted from Farragut's suc
cessful attempt to pass the forts and at
tack the Confederate fleet. Beverly An
nan was killed. Boyd Peyton, on Farra
gut's flagship, the Hartford, performed
a miracle of valor In saving men from
tha dynamited Tecumseh. beneath the
guns of the fort and the eyes of his
rather, who commanded it. Desperately
wounded by a shell, Peyton was removed
to shore, and nursed back to health and
strength by Mary Annan. Through her
Intercession, the outcast was taken back
Unto the family that had disowned him.
Then peace came upon the sorely-strick
en land, and a far greater peace to the"
nearts or Mary and Boyd.
At the Plaaa Saturday.
(At the Plaza today).
In addition to the regular show the
pictures of "Convict Ship Success' will
be shown at the Plaza Saturday. Show
ing scenes of relics of British barbarites
to com lets. The famous British convict
ship, "Success," the only one left of a
fleet of ocean hells used by the British
government a century ago. to transport
from England to the penal colony in
Australia. The "Success" was the prison
ship of the Six Men of Dorset, the pio
neers, who attempted to organize the first
labor union. They were convicted of
conspiracy and sentenced for a long term,
they were six of them.
Tens of thousands of the unfortunate
subjects of the criminal element, and
other unfortunates, who came under the
displeasure of the dominant officials of
the British regime of the eighteenth and
nineteenth century. This can be seen
at the Plaza theater this da. The "Suc
cess" is the oldest ship afloat. She was
launched at Moulmaln, India, in 1790 as
a merchant man until IStS. when she was
chartered by the British got eminent as
a prisoner convict ship In transporting
from Liverpool to Australia convicts sen
tenced to penal severity In the distant
colonial dependency then practically an
unexplored and undeveloped country.
Later the vessel was stationed as a re
ceding prison ship in Hobsons Bay, Aus
tralia. After many ears' service in that
port, the criminologist having devised
more humane treatment of prisoners of
the crown, the services of the vessel
were not needed and she vit abandoned
and after a time sank. Not many years
ago the old ship was raised and restored
to her former gruesome condition as a
prison ship. This picture gives the people
of Washington a chance to see some
thing which they have never seen be
fore. This will be the only chance to
see this picture shown In Washington
as we only have It one day.

Andy's taste In literature was not par
ticularly good It ran to paper colored
novels with lurid illustrations on the
front cover, and dark hints of crime and
blood In the titles. His mother caught
him reading one entitled "Skinned Alive!"
and told him exactly what she would do
If she ever found another book of the
sort in his possession
Little daunted by so remote a possi
bility, Andy purchased another dime
novel. This one was all about pirates,
and Andy, whose highest ambition had
prevlouslj been to become an engine
driver or a highway robber, was lifted
Into a seventh heaven He pictured him
self as the stern captain of a swift low
barque with all sails set In pursuit of a
stout merchantman He hissed curses
past the sword which was clenched in
his teeth, while beautiful captives knelt
before him and webt. Zounds! 'Sblood!
At this point, the superintendent of
the messenger office boxed Andy's ears
and took the book away from him. Andy
wreaked a terrible revenge upon him in
his Imagination by forcing hlra to walk
bo strong an Impression did the wild
rover's life make upon Andy that he
decided to become a pirate without delay.

were not precisely similar to those of

I have Just mailed a two-reel play to the

rreres and Sellg. However. I shall keep
It on the go until it has been to-every

her and never miss her pictures if I

She is also very clever Of the male ac

Motion Picture Editor' Does It often
occur to people what a debt of gratitude
we owe to our entertainers Of course,
we pay an admission fee, but there are
some debts that cannot be paid in mon

of people who so much appreciates your
So why humble ourselves before the
grocer, or the butcher, and affect a
blase attitude toward those who give us
pleasure, not only the entertainers them
selves, but those who exploit them, espe
cially as they are usuall) so nice to us.
For Instance, I stopped one very hot day
to make an inqulrv of the Plaza man
ager (I know It was the manager, be
cause I have seen his rlcture): he was
terribly busy arranging his display, and
in his mad career had fastened his un
rul) locks back with a rubber band, but
he took time to answer my question, and
to smile In the most engaging manner.
Of course, no man perfectly adores being
interrupted when he Is busy, but, when
he bears up under It and pretends to
enjoy It, as does the Plaza man. It shows
an amiable disposition.
And, no reserving all the praise for the
male contingent, let me mention the nice
young lad) In the box office at Cran
dalls, I don't suppose the one I talked
with is there all the time, but the one
in mind has dark hair and eyes. I stop
ped to make an Inquiry, and she not
only told me what I wanted to know,
but more than I asked, and wns so

"My husband mustn't see me here,
whispered the woman. "It might rouse

The alienist agreed and ushered ner into
an adjoining room Mr Goldsmith proved
to be a fat. Jovial and apparently harm
less little gentleman, and as Dr. Johnson
motioned him to a seat he made a mental
observation concerning mismated couples.
But the next moment having recovered
his professional attitude of mind, he
studied closely his visitor's gestures, ex
pressions and mode of speech.
At first Mrs. Goldsmith, listening at
the kejhole. heard only subdued whis
pers. But presently the patienrs voice
grew loud and argumentative, the doc
tor's firm and commanding, then a scums
ensued and a door slammed She stepped
back Into the consulting room Just aa
two white-coated Internes were conduct

through another door.
"It Is a rather peculiar case, Mrs. Gold

' Oh, doctor " moaned the J'oung

outburst of tears, gently conducted her
to the door. "If you call me up tomorrow

"Thank you so much " She smiled up
at him gratefull). "It was so stupid of
me to forgt It Good-bye. doctor."
She whisked away her tears, passed
from the building, and entered a waiting
automobile. A man Inside gave an order
to the chauffeur, and the car sped away.
"Did It work?" he asked.
She showed him the Jewel case. "He
fell for It like a boob I sprinkled a few
tears and worked a little sob stuff, and
he did the rest"
While she told the story In detail and
with great relish to her companion. Dr
Brandt Johnson continued to receive
"Mrs Goldsmith." announced the at

patiently. "Well, show her in."
But as Mrs Goldsmith strode Into the

wondering whether he had not suddenly

new Mrs Goldsmith was fat forbidding

Dr. Johnson experienced a sudden
weakness In the region of the knees "I
fear there has been a mistake," he mum
bled, and then, as he thought of the
Jewel case, the tear-ejed joung woman
and the very unusual sjmptoms exhibited
by Mr. Goldsmith, a disquieting sus
picion crept over him. '
He pressed a button. "James, bring
Mr. Goldsmith here." he ordered. While
Mrs. Goldsmith stared at him In bewild
erment and Increasing petulance, he tele
phoned the police department and re
quested that a detective be sent to his
office. As he hung up the receiver Mr.
Goldsmith, his face purple with rage and
knotted veins at his temples swelling
ominously, burst Into the room.

at the doctor. "Maybe j-ou think I don't

"Yes, the Jewels." emphasized Mrs.
Goldsmith, beginning to suspect a deep
laid plot The alleni?t was trying divers
methods of pacification when the detec

Into a grin as the doctor told the story.
He snatched the telephone from the table
and called headquarters.
"Better look out for Blackle Davis and
his wife," he said. "Yes, same old trick."
The Goldsmiths, partly calmed by the
presence of a representative of the law.
stared In bewilderment from the de
tective to the doctor.

his wife. "We'll have 'era before they
get time to get rid of the sparklers."
The alienist stroked his forehead In
perplexity. "I don't quite, see how it
happened." he remarked.
Why the trick's so old I thought
everybody waa wise to It" snorted the
detective. "Of course there waa one or
two new wrinkles, but It was tha same
