1 Do YOU Know IlJ
t By Charles Darnton
LIKE to see a story
A long tramp bad led to u short ansvfr And the
woman with a shawl about her head and a wideeyed
child clutching her hand was probably right about the
appeal of the moving picture
How wldo this appeal has become may be Judged
from the fact that there are inoro than GOO moving
picture shows la Now Yorlt From ono end of the
town to the other thoiuuuager with little more than
a lantern to his name Is holding the screen up to nature and occasionally
turning trick that goes nature 0110 better Although vaudeville audiences
toko the moving picture as their cue to move toward home true lovers of r
In action take all they can get for flvj or ten cents and then come back for
taort next day
They like to see a story
Tlmtfl the explanation thanks to the woman with a shawl over he
I head They feed upon mechanical fiction They read as they look Sen
Mtloual melodrama with the lllaln doing hU worst in a 1lug hat IB an old
tory to them They know It by heart And so theatres Iti which virtue
used to take a back seat until the last net have felt the power of moving
pictures Only one remains to tell the blooilauilthunder tale la all Man
hattan and It was obliged to get down to worklngmcns prIces before It
could compete ulth Its noiseless rivals From the start the moving picture
show had a double advantage lower prices and a dally change of bill Then
it went further and produced talking pictures but In most cases this
feature has been done away with audiences prefeirlng to take their plays
In peace and not be disturbed by the man behind the megaphone What
they want Is action Their attitude goes to show that It is ahvaja well to
leave something to the Imagination They like to see a story from their own
point of view
In New York nearly every neighborhood has Its show and the craze
has spread throughout the country until no town Is too small to do the
ft oovlng picture honor Here accordlrg to the word of a Sixth avenue show
t man picture fiends who keep a record of what they have seen and protest
against repeaters are an outgrowth of the crae Their criticism of the j
Sunday exhibitions at which only educational pictures may be shown in I
accordance with the stupid law Is often expressed In the simple term Rot 1
ten They Insist upon getting aclon for their money The pictures I
must get a move to win Patrons
I on success of thn picturedrama want I
to see a story with plenty of action In It From the Dower to the Dronx i
tastes and pictures arc much the same

The Directolre Foot And Its Long i

OW that we have discussed tte Dl

turn to the third feature which
hu teen changed

foot can no loner conceal
ieneath volumlnom draperies and
beauty or lack of It Is brought Into the
limelight Therefore to continue the
line of harmony from top to toe one
must acquire the Directolre foot as well
as the Dlrectolre hands and form
Fortunately for the averate woman It
Is not dltncult to do this
The nirectolr foot Is long slender
and narrow and Its beauty of line lies
chlelly In the cut of the shoe When
purchasing slipper or boot the woman
who wants to be strictly up to Jate
Bhould remember that length of line Is
the latest fad and though the pointed
toe adds an Inch or two to the size of
a foot It alo brings with It the desired
Directolre shape I
Jut what U added tn lingth Is cut oft
Iin breadth It IB here that my feminine
I reader will experience dllllculty for no
part at the body Is more dtflkutt to
train than the foot
Stiff rotary massage conscientiously
done for ten or fifteen minutes eaih

hnj been plenleously prlmled nlth bo

site and la at the tamo time soothing In
I A thorough manicure should be given
the foot blwcekly for no foot can bo

In some this would have teemed bigoted

Divine Love
UVE lor your K jo of the flesh it a jicttorsion ul
Lu love for God To love within yourself Him wlw
alone it within all ol us is to love led JAN
which la the great commandment In tho 16
MASTER Jesus said unto him Thou shall love tao
Lord thy Ucd uith all thy heart an with all 10
thy soul and with all thy mind This Is the first and great commandment
And tho second Is Ilko unto It Thou shall love thy nelBhnoi as thyself On
these two commandments hang all the law and tho prophets
St Matthew xtll G40
Lli people live not ill what they themselves think but by the love that
ii within the people
It is as though Cod did not wish that people should live sepa
rately and tiicrcfqie dill not reveal to them what 11 necessary to each one
but He wished that all should Hue harmoniously and therefore revealed
chat is nceessurv for all of them
People think that they live by their care for their own welfare but they
live by love alone He tcio is in love is in Clod and God is in Mm tyr Ood
is love
r OPLI live by love love for self is the beglnntny of death love for
r Ood and other people Is the beginning oj life
F a man cannot forgive his brother he docs not love him Heal love is
endless and there Is no cm to the offenses which it would forgive if
it is real love
T OVE is not the fundamental origin of our life Love is the effect not

the divine spiritual origin This consciousness requites lure tnnl pro

1 mean noble of the woman and
Stuiild of both of thorn finished
the Widow abruptly Anybody can

but youve got to prove that youre I
suitably ijUiiiiiini and perfectly proper
and able to pay alimony before you can

Whccew cxclilmcd the Bachelor i
Uo you mean to Imply that the path
to matrimony Is the broad and danger
oui nay and tho pith tu divorce Is the I
straight and narrow I
Oh not exactly Interrupted the
Widow But when you apply for a I
mm rinse license the only Important
iiiistlon lliuy ask Is whether or not
you arc tnentyan1 and you dont even I
Imvo to piove that but when you apply
for a divorce decree Just look ut the
questions they ask I and the Widow t
I shuddered
i Yes nsreed the Bachelor They
Ivvant to know what time you come homo
i nlKhts and how you spend your money
i and whom you take to luncheon
And what your maid thinks of you
V f < o
was her white soul and her womans
lovo that spoke
When she beheld him gazing at her
the tilted her head sldenlse daintily
like a little bird
Oh my I What a fierce you are all

Her smile flashed up m If Illum

crossed quickly kneeling beside her

He piled up a great sweetscented
couch of springy bought nnd fash
lOlled her n pillow out oC a bundle of
smaller ones around which ho wrapped

laced boots and taking hur tiny feet ono
In the palm of either hand bowed his
head over them and kissed them with
a sense of her gracious purity and his
own unworthlnosa lie spread one of
the big gray blankets over her nnil
tucked her In unite she sighed In de
lightful languor looking up at him
all the time
1 Ill sit here beside yott for a
while he said 1 want to smoke
fine stole a slim brown hand out from
beneath the cover and snuggled It In
hll and ho leaned forward closing her
lids down with his lips Her utter
weariness was manlfeat for ihe fell

twined about hli In a childlike crip
I Joined the Widow and anybody who
Is foolish enough to go Into U deaerviw

ed ulth u girile that the only peo
ple who wo cnn bo sure aro absolutely

Whit Tliu Bachelor turned and

Well shu explained plaintively

legal appioval but any old burglar or

The Widow stared suspiciously
can get married A man doesnt have
to prove that hits able to support u 1
wife In order to get one but he has to
prove that hes able to pay her alimony
In order to get rid of one
Thats so cried the Bachelor Dl j
vorce In a cure sign of ready money i
You can marry and live together on II 2
a week but It takes a big lawyers foe J
amla solid Income to live apart Matrl J
mony la cheap beside alimony i
And that declared the Widow U 51
why divorce Ii getting to be a mark of j
social distinction and matrimony Is go
Ing out of fashion Its Its almost bad
form Ilko the fur hats at 1193 and the
Kilt handbags aid the sheath towns
on Fourteenth street Isnt It7
It does seem to have lost caste ad
mitted the Bachelor
And yet sighed tho Widow th
clergymen all over the country am mak
Ing U easier and cheaper and crying for
more stringent divorce laws
Maybe theyre In with the trustl
suggested the Bachelor and want to
conllno all the little luxuries like di
vorce and alimony to the Four Hundred
and the millionaires
Not at all retorted the Widow i
They have a better reason than that
for wanting to lure ui Into matrimony
and keop us there for all eternity I
What J
They believe In ETERNAL PUNISH
I MENTI announced the Widow calmly 1
And they know wo deserve It
groaned tho Bachelor and they want f
ui to get It right hero on earth I j
But wo wont will we demanded 1
I the Widow glancing up definitely with ft
a onecornered umllu under her ttptllted
hat t
NOT IK I KNOWnot unless you say
I eo agreed the Bachelor cheerfully
Nothing Serious
