HALLOWE'EN 08SERVED
HERE BY YOUNG PEOPLE
LARGE NUMBER OF PARTIES
FOR THE OCCASION.
.Masked Figures in Parade on Down
Town Streets No Acts of Vandalism.
Hallowe'en was generally observed
here last night by the younger set
with parties, masked parades on the
streets and other revelries. Many
may not know it but this is not the
purpose of Hallowe'en.
Chief Livingston and his men were
on duty to see that no overt acts
were committed under the license of
the occasion, and so far no rowdyism
has been reported.
Of all the peculiar celebrations that
the people of the United States so
freely and joyously indulge in, this
of Hallowe'en, is easily the first and
most peculiar. It is not the cele
bration of any great historic event,
hke the Fourth of July; it does not
temmemorate the birth of any great
man, like Washington' birthday; it is
in no sense a church festival,
though, coming on the eve - of
Saints day, revered dw
has by some been assouf

and all sorts of mischief,
licious, is overlooked.
Its origin is lost in the mists of the
early ages. We know that the
Druid priests celebrated it as a sort
of harvest home by lighting bonfires,
and possibly offering sacrifices to
their stern gods. They were great
er sacrifices, those old boys, and hu
man beings sometimes formed the
piece de resistance of their ceremo
nies. Be that as it may the : cus

Usmitted to their descendants in

those stern old fathers were to all
forms of folly. We had rather cred

HALL CAINE'S POWERFUL PICTURE STORY
"THE WOMAN THOU GAVEST ME" PRESENTED
BY SUPERB ALL-STAR CAST OF PLAYERS
Exceptional Cast Includes Such Well Known Screen Favorites
us Kntherine Mat-Donald, Jack Holt, Theodore Roberts,
Milton bills and Fritzi Brunette.
Virtually an all-star cast presents
the Paramount-Artcraft special pic
ture "The Woman Thou Gavest Me,"
Hall Caine's masterpiece, directed by
Hugh Ford, which will be shown ai
the Arcade on Tuesday next. .
The role of Mary MacNeill is por
trayed by Katherine MacDonald, one
tf the most beautiful of actresses, who
will be remembered for her excellent
work as Lady Diana in "The Squaw
Man," a Cecil DeMille Artcraft spe
cial, and for her work in support of
iiouglas Fairbanks and William S.
iiart, as well as in other notable pic-
.i'.'es. .Ulss iUacisonaiu is imeu ui
every way for the tremendously pow
erful emotional part in the Caine pic
ture, for she is not only beautiful
but accomplished in the histrionic art
;ml gifted with a splendid sense of
proportion. Her rendition is declar
ed to be a work of real art.
Milton Sills, seen on several occa
sions as leading man for Clara Kim
ball Young, a well known actor of
creen, is cast as Martin Con
" the intrepid young explorer,
e love for Mary is one of the in
spiring features of the theme. Ha
is particularly excellent in the emo
tional moments with which the pic
ture abounds.
Theodore Roberts, the veteran char
acter actor, is Daniel McNeill, the
stern and unyielding father of Mary,
lie is hard as flint, proud as Lucifer
and he sacrifices his child on the
altar of his selfishness. The part
is a m.ost absorbing one and is por
trayed by Mr. Roberts with infinite
artistry.
Jack, Holt, who was "Cash Haw
kins" in "The Squaw Man," plays the
heavy role of Lord Raa, the scape
grace scion of a noble family. The
part is a despicable one and it is a
tribute to an actor's genius that Jie is
i.iile to interpret it in such convincing
fashion as Jack Holt has done.
Fritzi Brunette, a well known screen
actress, depits the adventuress, Al
ma Lier, and does it with great art
end a verisimilitude that is rare even
in these days of finished acting. The
difficult character becomes real and
convincing in Miss Brunette's capable
hr.nds.

Reports of officers were made at
today's session. About sixty accred
ited delegates from local organiza
tions in the State attended the twi
day session, and the local and other
visitors swelled the attendance to a
good-sized gathering. The meetings
were held on the roof garden of the
Hillsborough hotel.
The session last night was in the
form of a memorial in honor of the
late Dr. Anna Howard Shaw, who
was for years in the forefront of the
fight for equal suffrage in the Unit
ed States. The principal speaker was
Dr. Mary B. Jewett, of Winter Hav
en, a close friend and companion of
Dr. Shaw. Her subject was Dr.
Shaw, the Woman, and she paid a
beautiful tribute to the memory of
her former colleague. Dr. Mary A.
Safford, of Orlando, spoke on Dr.
Shaw, the Suffragist, and Mrs. John
T. Fuller, of Orlando, on Dr. Shaw,
the Patriot. Special music was a partj
of the exercises.
The executive committee remains
over for a meeting to be held this afternoon.
