Coring1 Picture Actor Attempts a Difficult
On July 12th, the Reliance Motion
Picture company will present a two
reel feature entitled "Ashes" in which
Irving Cummings is put to the sever!
est test of his career as an actor.
["Ashes" promises to be a photographic
as well as an artistic sensation, as
it is a series of double exposures
added to which, one scene dissolves
into another from the beginning of the
first part to the finish of the picture.
The result is one of the oddest and
cleverest picture productions imagina- j
ble. Especially as the story is writ-1
ten by Marion Brooks shows originality
that is far above the ordinary. Irving
Cummins as the central figure of
the drama is first seen as an old man
of three score years and ten, giving
a dinner to the memories of the five
sweethearts of his youth. At each
cover has been placed a bouquet of
their faivorite flowers and as he picks
up each bunch of posies 'and gazes
fondly at the delicate petals, the face
of his long-lost love appears in the
centre of the bouquet, followed by the
story of his love affair told in pictures.
The effect is startling and is
only surpassed by the climax of the
feature when each sweetheart takes
her place at the table and answers

The Greatest Lever of Popular Uplift.
We maintain that Mr. Bryan's work

he identifies himself with the people,
and he has been the greatest lever of
popular uplift in politics ana social
standards that we know of. It may
be that the government, when it provides
a period of rest for one of its
servants has the right to say that the 1
servant shall rest, but if it is to be
a period of recreation and holiday
a man ought to be allowed to take j
