Officials Explain Stipulation of
Philanthropist Kegardlng Dis
posal of Property.
Ofllclals of the Glrard Estate denied to
day that the sale of property near 2d
and Porter streets broke the will of the
philanthropist. Several times before. It
waR sUlcd. property belonging to the
estate had been sold when It was seen
that such disposition would be of advan
tage. Judge Lamorelle, In tho Orphans' Court,
filed a decree several days ago authoriz
ing the directors of the estate to sell
the property to B. Franklin Theobold and
Louis G. Fettlg for JS7,W0. In view of
the fact that Stephen Glrard stipulated
in his will that nono of the property
should be sold. It was contended that the
recent sale virtually broke tho will.
"Had we made tho sale without tho
permission of the Orphans' Court It would
havo been a violation of the will," said
on official. "But the Court has the
power to authorize any sale, provided
wo ran prove It Is for the best Interests
of the estate."

A Rajny Day Flay in "Pretend Land"

35 he looked out of t)ie window just
after he had finished breakfast.
"Really, Jack." cried his sister Bess
ifi distress, "I did want it to be pleas

oqt In the yard today. Just as sure as
we have a holiday, it goes and rainsl"
she added in a cross voice, quite unlike
her 'usual h.w tone.
"Rainy days art the days for sunny

"That's all very well for you to say,
mother," replied Bess. "But you
know what a perfectly splendid plan
we had for todayl And now the old
rain is going to spoil it all"
True enough I For as she spoke,
great drops of water came splashing
down from the sky.

Mother didn't answer except by her

they exclaimed, "you always plan

"To work," said mother laughing,

The boys cleared the room. The
girls found and brought down the
parcels of old-time clothes mother had
laid out for them, and the fun began.
tM'rst they played that the dining
table was a. mountain. Two of them
were travellers who climbed the moun
tain and got lost, and the other two
were monks who lived In an old
church on the mountain and rescued
the travelers.
Then they pretended that under
neath the table was a fairy cave. The
girls dressed in flowing white skirts
and lived in the cave, and the boys
were goblins who came exploring
over the earth and found the fairies
and stayed and played with them.
Then they were animals in a me

Last Sunday, at the Cotonial Theatre,
Germantown, tho flrst section of the four
part movlnjc picture of the Bible, "Crea
tion," was shown to an nppreclatlvo au
dience. This section, which covers the
Biblical account of the creative "days,"
or epochs, and the first 1000 years of hu
man history, will be repeated next Sun
day at the Nixon Theatre, at 3 and 8
o'clock p. m,, while nt the same hours
the second great division of the drama
will bo shown at the Colonial. These ex
hibitions, which are ehtlrely free to tho
l-publlc, will conllnuo at both theatres for
several Sundays, a different part being
shown each week. The International Bible
Students' Association are the originators
of "Creation," and aro uslnjr the movlnff
film, the high-power llsht and reproduc
tions of hundreds of famous palntlnfta
to make real tho sacred records of ancient
times and to prove their harmony with
science and history.
Part ttvo, to bo presented at tho Colonial 1
next Sunday, Includes many ancient char
acters made famous by tho record of their
lives In the Good Book, acting on the
screen the parts they played Th tho
dramas of the past. Moses and Aaron
at tho court of Pharaoh, their fearless
bearing and courageous demand that
the Egyptian sovereign release the Israel
ites nre depicted.
This section closes with the story of tho
Shunammlta womnn and her son and the
raising of the tatter from death by the
Prophet EIIbIir. Beautifully portrayed In
a hand-colored film. It Is a story which
deeply touches human sympathy and In
Its conclusion bflngs Joy to the hearts of
all who witness It.
A rogues' gallery In moving pictures!
That is what may result from tho offer
made to Police Commissioner Arthur H.
Woods of New York, by the Hcarst
Sellg Ncb Pictorial. Police authorities
of the world have had under considera
tion the plan to make motion pictures of
convicted criminals for Identification pur
poses, It being believed that such a rec
ord would show much more clearly tho
Individualities and characteristics of a
criminal than tho ordinary still photogra
phy. The Hcarst-Sollg New's Pictorial
has offered to send two of Its camera men
to police hendquarters to make moving
pictures of "the line-up" of alleged crooks
as on experiment, and Commissioner
Woods has the matter under considera
tion. The experiment would be without
cost to the city of New York.
Several of the Lubln players planned to
give a party, followed by a dance, with
tho Idea of getting better acquainted, but
no definite time was set for the event.
Thinking that It would bo an opportunity
for tho general public to come In and got
acquainted, too, Kempton Greene And Jo
seph W. Smlloy suggested holding a
Lubln players' ball and lost no time In
obtaining Eagles Hall, where a dance
will bo held on the evening of December
1, and you arel nvlted to attend. Tickets
may bo had from any player or agency.
Several of the players will take part In
the H acts of vaudeville, and the cab
aret entertainment during the early part
of the evening, affording an opportunity
of seeing them "In action." The ball
Is the sole topic of conversation at the
studio, and tho word has reached soveral
of the other companies who have asked
for reservations, among them being
Hughy Mack and Edith Story, of tho Vlt
agraph, and King Bagott, of tho Imp.
Following tho series of "Tho Beloved
Adventurer" pictures, which has been
successful beyond expectations, the Lubln
Cdmpany will release a new weekly of
the adventures and sad experiences oj
"Patsy Bolivar." Patsy's misfortunes
arc continuous and excruciatingly funny.
The stories have been written by Clay M.
Greene, and tho first number will be re
leased December S3 and continue one reel
every Monday for It weeks.
The famous Flayfcrs' Film Company
has secured the film rights of another Im
portant dramatic success, "The Dawn of
a Tomorrow," the drama of an oppressed
girl's splendid faith and triumph, by Mrs.
Frances Hodgson Burnett, which will be
Utilized as a vehicle for Mary PIckford.
Mary PIckford will portay the wonder
ful character of "Glad," the ragged but
beautiful girl of the London slums, whose
und)ing optfmlsm and heroic courage
even stravatlon and deadly peril are un
able to quench.
By one of the largest deals of Its sort
ever recorded In the motion picture busi

definitely stated to be In excess or J10O.00O.

Sending Men Ahead Did It
How docs it happen that you have as full
stocks as ever?
It did not happen; nothing happens of itself.
Some one has to go in advance to spread the
table, lay on the dishes, prepare the food the
serving of it is the least thing of all.
This is a Hotel of Merchandise, with its many
rooms furnished and enriched for guests, its
hospitalities and its over-full tables on eighteen
different floors and galleries.
What we say of things to be seen here docs not
turn out to be wind and to have vanished away

Fashionable Fox Furs
New -and Fine
Mr. Reynard is as well liked as any animal in all the
furrier's world and with reason, when you consider that
fox furs are so beautiful in themselves and do not neces
sarily mean a large outlay of money.
Pointed foxes are peculiarly rich and becoming, made
up in massive irregular fashion, usually with heads and
tails. Prices run from $25 to $80 for straight scarfs and
$30 to $75 for big lovely muffs.
Sitka or taupe colored foxes are invariably very thick
furred; the dye which gives them their name cannot be
successfully used with poor or thin pelts. They are made up
in the same one and two-skin styles as pointed foxes, some
times with crepe de chine or chiffon velvet.
Neckpieces are $35 to $60.
Muffs, $40 to $75.
Cross fox, white fox, sable-dyed fox, red fox, black fox
and blue dyed fox are the other members of the family in
the Fur Salon.
And all of them, like everything- else in this section, has
the Wanamaker guarantee of genuineness and quality.

Pertinent Particulars About
Women's $4 and $5 Shoes
That there is a wonderful lot of them in this Store
would be of no especial interest if they were just ordi
nary $4 and $5 shoes.
The point is, they are better all through than
almost any other $4 or $5 shoes selling today. Better
in style, better in leathers, better in workmanship.
You need not take our word for this. It is proved
beyond question by the number of these shoes we sell.
In the assortment are practically all the styles of
shoes for all uses that a woman could want. And in
addition to the great staple stocks there is a splendid
selection of novelty shoes.
The group of novelty shoes at $4 which has just
been enlarged by eight of the very newest styles of
fancy top shoes, has no counterpart in this city.
