. One of the most delightful little
stars of the screen, Shirley Mason, I
will be seen at the Utah theatre to
day in her latest Fox production,
"Molly and I." - In her last picture,
"Her Elephant Man," Miss Mason I
had tho part ota little circus girl.
In "Molly and 1" she is an ordinary
little stenographer, who impersonates
a typical little French maiden to
win her way into the heart of the
man she loves. J
Shirley Brown, or "Molly" as she
Is nicknamed, is to inherit $10,000
on the day she is married. She meets
and falls In love with Philip Smith,
an author, who is totally blind and
penniless. She persuades him to
marry her, for she says, "she has
been waiting forty years for a hus
band!. In reality she wishes to send
him to ' Italy where he may regain
"When ho returns with his' sight,
"Molly" begins to make hor husband
fall in love with her. "She-, imperson
ates an Alsatian orphan, and finds
employment in his apartment She
makes bolievo she can neither speak
nor understand English and there is
no end of the complications that en
sue. There is another woman, of
course, who also loves the young au
thor, but "Molly" finally wins his
heart, and after a misunderstanding
that threatens to separate the two,
the husband and wife are united.
THE FEAR MARKET'
"The Fear Market" a Realart Pro
duction, which is to be presented at
tho Alhambra theatre for a 3-day run
engagement beginning today, "is a
photoplay attraction which critics who
have followed tho development of the
silver sheet as a medium for the pre
sentation of really big dramatic ideas
have declared ranks among the fore
most of film dramas.
Alice Brady, the film fans' favorite
in the part of Sylvia Stone is called
upon to portray the gamut of human
emotions and does so with a tensity
that is most convincing and a subtlety
which causes the calloused critics to
speak of her work a"s ranking with the
best ever seen on tho screen. v
In no sense is "Tho Fear Market"
a preachment It is an absorbing tale
of pathos and love which tugs at the
heart strings and keeps the spectator
entranced frqm start to finish.
The story Is by Princess Troubetz
koy, and when "The Fear Market"
made its appearance iri print created a
sensation wherever English is read. It
was apparent that the authoress based
her story on an expose which filled
the front pages of the press the world

Ogden is being extensively advor-
I Used through efforts of the Weber
club and the Chamber of Commerce,
O. J. Stllwell, secretary of these or
ganizations, announced today.
Ho reports that from one to ten re
quests arrive through the mails dally
I from persons In eastern, northern,
southern states asking for Informa
tion regarding Ogden.
To meet the demands of .people
seeking information regarding Ogden
and Utah, a neat package containing
descriptive literature regarding this
city and other interesting Utah
points is mailed out.
Carl R. Gray, president of tho
Union Pacific system, a recent vis
itor to the club, who was given one
of tho packages used for advertis
ing by the Weber club, addressed
tho following letter to Warren I
Wattis, president of the Weber club.
Dear Mr. Wattis:
I have noted with a great deal of
Interest both tho leaflet Inclosed
with your kind letter of. tho 28th
ultimo and the very considerable
amount of literature which Mr. Stll
well was kind enough to send me,
no that 1 am beginning to get a bet

sibilities. With my best wishes, I am always,
Very sincerely yours, ,

referred dealt almost entirely with

ALICE BRADY SAVED
Bf HE "EVIL EYE"
In "The Fear Market," a Realart
picture starring Alice Brady, the "Evil
Eye" protects the heroine from being
assaulted by tho man who professes to
Not a little has been written on sup
erstition and the part it plays Jn hu
man lives. It is an historic fact that
on account of a hen and a rooster a
kingdom was lost. The different races
have thoir pot superstitions. The fear
of the number 13 is common with us. i
Tho Evil Eye is the dread superstition
of the Italian. Sickness, failure in
business, love, or domestic affairs is
laid to the "Evil Eye." One possessed
with tho evil eye is avoided, spurned,
spat at and in passing such uppers on a
prayer is said or a sign made to break
the spell. S ,
In "The Fear Market," which will be
seen at the Alhambra theatre, starting
today. Alice Brady appearing as Syl
via Stone, is ardently wooed by an
Italian tenor, Ettare Forni, who in
duces her to elope with him. Taking
her to a tavern In a nearby town, Forni
tries -to induce Sylvia to partako of
some wine and when they will be mar
ried, is told that marriage was a cage
and love a bird that will die when
placed in bondage, Sylvia recognizes
that Forui's intention is not honorable
and attempts to leave the room. For
ni whose passions are aroused, bars
the way and makes a grab for her,
when Sylvia informs him that she pos
esses the "Evil Eye." Fear creeps into
his heart; he makes the "sign of tho
horns" to break the spell, opens the
door and permits Sylvia to pass.
But what are Miss Brady's super
stitions? Her pet superstition is not
to be superstitious.
There is no more potency to number
thirteen, Miss Brady believes, than
there is to five or eighteen and she
is in favor of starting a society lor
the emancipation of this much ma
ligned numeral. She points to the fact
that before the advent of the High
Cost of Living folks were glad enough
to get the well known "Bakers'Dozen"
thirteen, Instead of the round hard do
en now offered.
More than one director has torn his
hair becauso some temperamental star
has refused to do tlils or that because
she, just knew that something dread
ful would happen If she did. Not so
with Miss Brady. Should the scenario
call for her to break a mirror, smash
goes the glass. If the director deems
it necessary for the sake of the picture
that she place a pair of shoes on a
tablo that's all there is to It Miss
Brady puts them on. Walking under
ladders, spilling salt, putting up an
umbrella in the house, whistling in the
dressing room, singing before break
fast and every other superstition
known to stage folks means nothing
to Miss Brady, who believes that sup
erstition is the child of ignorance.
