Bab's father agrees with a laugh and all is well until that night when Bab, unknown to her family, attends the performance in order to see her "Adrian" again. All would have been well even then had not Bab com menced sneezing so violently that the attention of the whole audience was drawn in her direction, including that of ner family, which was also present. Bab goes to the theater the next due and tells Adrian and his manager the scheme, which they agree Is a fine one.

When you jto to the Empress the ater on Friday and Saturday to see the first of "The Hon of Democracy stories, you will see "the man who looks like Linooln." He Is Benjamin Chapin who in real life looks just as lie does on the screen, a living image of the great president. Authorities say that a man's life gov crus his appearance, that if two men think the same thoughts, lake the same exercise, havb the sume ideals, they will look alike- providing of course, that their bodies are similar. Benjamin Chapin is proof of this theory. Nature made him tall und thin, like Lincoln. But It was Mr. Chapin's devotion to Lincoln, Ills constant efforts to live Lincoln's life again, that made Mr. Chapin in every feature another Abra ham Lincoln in the flesh. Ever since lie was a boy in Bristol ville, Ohio, Mr. Chapin has been a Lin coln enthusiast. One of his first books, the one he read over and over again, was .1. G. Holland's "Life of Lincoln," published in 1X6«. He determined to live as Lincoln lived and us he learned more about ibis great man tie made up bis niliul to spread tlie spirit of Lin coln throughout tlie nation. Mr. Chapin went to New York. There he labored for years. On tlie stage lie impersonated Lincoln, each year grow ing to look more like him. He wrote and produced Lincoln plays, lie lectured and gave Lincoln readings. Then came the motion pictures. It was the great est of all Instruments for his work and five years ago he began work upon the series of 10 Lincoln stories that now are being presented us ^Thc. Hon of De mocracy." To the average person, it seems In credible that it should take five years to make 20 reels of film—10 stories that take a half hour each in the telling. Day after day was spent in collecting the proper costumes, in making the ! proper sets and gathering the correct atntosphere. tint the greater itart of Ute time was needed to make the pic tures real dramas, with comedy, pathos and adventures. Mr. Chapin knew that few persons wanted to see merely a life of Lincoln on the screen so he produced a series of plays that would be bully shows even though the perstms who saw them had never beard of Lincoln. He made Lincoln an important character in each, much the same as Lincoln was an im portant character in "The Birth of a Nation." The result is that "The Son of De mocracy" is a triumph for Mr. Chapin. He lias made a stirring motion picture and in that picture he presents Lincoln as he really was-the boy and the inan the hero in one of the few pie lures that the N ational Hoard of Re view of Motion Pictures has stamped j "Excellent."
