The role of Virginia Blaine was created on (he stage in George Broad hurst's notable play, from which the picture was adapted by Julio Dean. The cast is notable for the ability of the players embraced therein.

And despite the !f.-,ct that Miss Daniels is remembered mine, which Is slowly Hooded. ; tor her appearances in Ihe rollicking I sm-i of comedies, she will wring your I heart and possibly your girl will i wring her handkerchief over the rom antic story ot Nancy, a Nobody who came from Nowhere. A'ter many adventures she was abo.it to go back there when 6he was caught and carried off by a very def inite Somebody in ihe person of Ed ward Sutherland. Oh yes, there's comedy, too, but romance predomi nates, with a wonderfully cloar-cut emotional characterization by Miss Daniels. The supporting cast is entirely cap able. Mention has already been made of Mr. Sutherland, who played the! ma'e lead with May McAvoy in "Ev-1 erything For Sale,' and who here con tributes another pleasing juvenile to sen-en literature. ! Myrtle Stedman, who was Bill Hart's leading woman in "The Whis-! it'e." and Ilayakawa's in "Black Roses," plays the hero's mother. Ed I ward Martindel is also seen, being i b:ck with Miss Daniels for the fust time since his appearance with her j in her very first staring picture, "You i I Never Can Tell." Vera Lewis and j lames Gordon "team" as the malicious Keiivs, and Helen Holly is convincing as the "other girl" in the hero's life. The photography by George Folsey, must come in for an emphatic word of commendation. The direction by Chester M. Franklin is full of those deals with life in the mining regions of Pennsylvania. It is a very drama tic tale, in which the hero struggles against overwhelming odds to prove the innocence of his father, falsely imprisoned for murder. He is com pelled to go through a series of ex periences of the most thrilling nature. His home is burned by his enemies. He is imprisoned at the bottom of a He drives a locomotive at terrific speed to an open bridge and plunges with it to the river below. In the supporting cast are Edna Murphy and Dorothy Allen both pleasantly remembered for their ex cellent work in the big Fox special "Over the Hill" Byron Douglas, and J. Thornton Baston. "Dynamite Allen" was directed by Dell Henderson, one of the leading megaphone wielders. - Kamehameha Singers To Render Concerts; First Is Tomorrow i word to describe them in which his pictures abound, and which are the seal of the inspired , director, as dis tinguished from the fellow who just "makes pictures."

Arbuckle declared that he may remain in the Orient several weeks after which he will go to Paris. "FIND THE WOMAN" Alma Rubens, who is the featured player in "Find the Woman," a Cos mopolitan Production released by Paramount, is a descendant of Peter Paul Rubens, the famous (Flemish painter. By a peculiar coincidence there was placed in one of the settings in the picture a drawing room in the home of the character interpreted by Miss Rubens a bronze statuette of the great painter. The actress, while not an adept at handling the palette, is thoroughly at home in any art museum; indeed she spends much of her spare time in the Metropolitan Museum in New York City. In "Find the Woman" Miss Rubens plays a part well suited to her out standing talenls. She is seen as Sop hie Carey, a concert singer, who be friends a girl from a country town who is in New York to try to make her way on the stage. The two young women are strangely involved in a murder mystery, one of the most sen sational in years. It is known that about the time the victim was killed in his office a woman was seen leav ing the room by way of a fire escape. Thus it is up to the police to "Find the Woman." Arthur Somers Roche wrote the story for Cosmopolitan Magazine and Doty llobart adapted it to the screen. It was directed by Tom Terriss, who also directed "Boomerang Bill" with Lionel liariymore. Eileen Huban, well known on the speaking stage, .has an important role, as have George TYPHOON DEAD INCREASE (ASSOCIATED VREKm HONG KONG, Aug. 16 Advices re ceived here from missionaries say the recent typhoon killed 12,000 persons at Gouasoa and 23,000 at Chia Khiu.

Madame Miura Charms Honolulu I Japanese Prima Donna Warm ly Welcomed By Large Crowd and Tribute Paid To Art and Voice Madame Tamakl Miura, who will be heard at Kahului Theater tomorrow night and in the Pioneer Theater. Lahaina, next Monday night has been pleasing greatly in Honolulu as may be judged from the following criticism of her Monday night concert, as re ported in the Star-Bulletin: " Mme. Tamakl Miura, with her bright kimonos, her flashing smile, and a half-playful, half-different man ner of taking her audience into her confidence, returned to the local con cert stage last night with a program marked by a distinct novelty. "The famous Japanese opera star the "world's greatest Madame Butterfly" sang several songs of which one verse she gave in Eng lish and the odier in Japanese. Not entirely at home in (he English language, either for speaking or for singing, the Japanese star neverthe less captivated the big audience at the Liberty theater by the very art lessness of her apologies for inabili ty to express herself freely in that tongue. "Artistically, the singer scored an other triumph last night before an audience which casual observation would indicate was about two-thirds Japanese. There were, however, many "haoles present also, and they were quite as generous in their ap plause as her own countrymen and countrywomen. "Maestro Aldo Franchetti, the very capable Italian pianist who accom panies Mme. Miura, shared In the honors last night. The singer fea tured on her program two of his com positions, "Era di Magglo," and i-acm racno." The latter, an j nounced by Mme. Miura as "a coml- cal song," was that indeed. She sang it both in Japanese and in English. It told of the tribulations of a lover facing the stern and forbidding aunt of his sweetheart, and the "music, words and the singer's interpretation brought a gale of laughter and ap plause. "Mme. Miura covered a wide range of selection. At the close, in re sponse to insistent calls after she had given two arias from "Mme Butterfly," she sang "Aloha Oe" in the Hawaiian version and from mem ory of her concert the Nippu Jiji said: In her English rendition of A. Fran chetti's newly composed piece "Pachi Pacho", Madame Tamakl Miura for got the words and was compelled to stop and apologize to the audience. Very few Bingers would have recover ed from this mishap but Madame Mi ura came out of it triumphant and evaded a likely disaster. Singing before a packed house at the Liberty Theater last evening, Madame Tamakl Miura, the Japanese nightingale, scored success. Handi capped by ends and odds, she handled her part expertly and added another laurel to her strings of success. The songbird appeared on the stage in an I attractive Japanese costume, redolent of oriental atmosphere. j Mme. Miura was heard by local mu-' sic enthusiastiasts before. She has i improved considerably since her last j appearance. She received applause ! after applause after singing Pachi Pacho, a comical song, composed by i A. Franchetti. This song, according to Madame Tamaki's explanation, was composed by her accompanist , in Japan, words and music being ar-1 ranged by him. She made it equally successful by dramatizing the song. ; Executed Everything Well 1 Nothing need be said of her rendi-j tion of "Un bel di vedremo" from ; that immortal composer, Puccini. She carried her selection remarkably i well, flatting a little in her first selec-! tion from Paglicci. i She was accompanied by Signor A. I Franchetti who also handled his part admirably. She will be heard tonight proDamy tor the last time, at the Liberty theater in an entirely new program. WAILUKU HIPPODROME "DICK" P. HARRIS, Mgr.
