"Thc Anderson Monday."
The World Film Corporation re
leases tho five-part photoplay. "Mrs.
Wlggs of the Cabbage Patch." The
picture was produced by the Califor

made a successful attempt to preserve
the atmosph?re o? the novel and the
stage play in the film. Aliee llegan
Dice, tho authoress. also wrote
"Lovey Mary," and this picture is a
composite presentation of the two
theme.; which interact to comprise the
story that forms tho basis of the
photoplay scenario. Mrs. Anne Craw

der the titie, "Mrs. Wlggs of the Cab

at the Savvy theatre, Thirty-fourth
street. New York City (The Savoy
Theatre is now a motion plcturo
house,) in September, 1903. ,
Mrs. Flexner and Mrs. Rice wero
friends and the former lady, and ex
perienced dramatist, wished to turn
the books into plays. She did sor al
though discouraged by ?lrs. Rice and
mauy friendB, who declared that the
books did not contaba the necessary
dramatic material. The possibilities
of "Mrs. WiggB" were suggested to

Sheriff Hurls Captores a Still, Its Op
erators and Products.
Sheriff Davis was In town for
awhile yesterday, and related inter
estingly to your correspondent the
account ot tho way in which he cap
tured a still, Its operators and pro
ducts Thursday night on L. Verner's
place near the Tugaloo river on the
back side of the county. The eherlff
had gotten wind of their operations
and with one of his deputies. Fred
Brown, went over to that side Thurs
day afternoon. He says that he crawl
ed right up to them and watched them
for some time in. th0 actual opera
tions. He saya that this ls tho first
time he has ever taken a crowd in
the very act, that he bas frequently
gotten there Just arter they got
through, or Just aa they were starting
up, but this time he watched them
for some time In the actual process.
He watched them build up their fire
and- test their proof, all unconscious
Hutt tho eyes of the law were looking
down upon them. When they had tried
ot watching this interesting procesa,
they Jumpped right into the still and
each grabbed his man in tho colUr
and threw him ?own. They were
taken so completely by surprise thal
they easily rarren?cred. -Tio?.^
tured several gallons of Ute finished
product and destroyed H s ve. ral barrels
of beer and mash and quite a qauaiity
of meal. Tho sheriff said everything
indicated extensive operations.

Beatriz Michelena plays th i part of
"Lovey Mary" In the photoplay. Miss
Michelena, by her beauty and ability,
has wm great renown as a motion
picture star, and is seen to advantage
in this film. Blanche Chapman plays
the part of Mrs. Wlgga.
The character of Mrs. Wlggs hos be
come a clash' of American literature,
as embodying the best attributes of
good nature, kindheartedness, and
common sense in all circumstances of
life. "Poor but honest" Bhe is, radiat
ing cheerfulness, contentment and for
giveness about her. The photoplay
takes scenes in humble life; in the
circus, in fashionable and industrial
life as its backgrounds, and the char
acters have all t the seeming of ac
tuality, being drown without exag
geration. Although here and there
touching the truly dramatic tho come
dy clemant evens up pretty well, the
total result being an acceptable mix

The task of reproducing the atmos
phere and feeling of well-known
novels and books on the motion pic

"Mr*. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch" te
an exception to the general rule. Thc
story ls "racy of the soil," 1. e., lt 1?
truly and typically American; and it:
plot ts plausible almost to the extent
of triteness. The characterization is
the main strength of the photoplay as
woll &e of novel and stage play. "Mrs.
Wiggs,*' is only one of many interest
ing characters in the offering.
