mmmmmmmmmm. TOrW 1 1 EVENING LEDGER-PHILADELPHIA, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 4, 1914. 11 i. i i , , , , . A GREAT MYSTIC STORYg HAROLD MacGRATHSMHL I (.Copyright, MH, by Harold McOralh.) ! SYNOPSIS T Zudora is fat an orphan at'an 1 aWj apo. or father is killed in i a poW j?it'no ie ias discovered. Half an hour after learning of the death of her htutband, Zudora's 1 mother a tightrope walker with i a circus fa stricken ivith vertigo, falls and is killed. Zudora and the fortune from the mine) which grows to be worth tSO.000,000, are left in the guardianship of Frank Keene, brother of Zudora's mother. Zu dora, giving promise of great beauty, reaches the age of 18. The uncle, who has set himself up as a Hindu mystic and fa known as Hassam Alt, determines in his greed that Zudora must die before she can have a chance to come into her wealth, so that it will be left to him. ' Hassam prevails upon the girl to lcp,ve her money in his hands for three years more and to say nothing to any one about the for tune. Further, he sees an ob stacle to his scheme in John Storm, a young tawyer, for whom Zudora has taken a fancy, and he commands the girl to put the man out of her mind. Storm asks Hassam for Zudora in marriaac, but Hassam coldly refuses. Zu dora insists that if she cannot marry Storm she shall not marry any one. "Well, well," replica Hassam, "if you take such a stand, I'll compromise. Solve my next SO eases and you can marry him; fail in a single case and you must renounce him." CHAPTER I-(Contlnucd.) THE MYSTERY OP THE SPOTTED COLLAR. There was little love lost between Storm and Bienreith. They had . clashed a dozen times during the past year; and once or twice they had almost come to blows. On the last day they came together in the court room, just before the noon recess. Bienreith threw discretion to the winds and hurled a low epithet at his rival, who swiftly retaliated by strik ing the German across the face with the brief he held in his hand. A tremendous confusion ensued and from her seat in the gallery Zudora viewed the scene with alarm. This man Bienreith was an athletic bully. He had been in America but a few years and he still held to the German view regarding a blow in the face Pic hastily scribbled a note which he shoved toward Storm. The latter read it, shrugged and nodded af firmatively. All might have gone well but for the fact that an enterprising reporter found the discarded note and made a great scoop for his paper. Bienreith had challenged Storm to a duel and the latter had hotly agreed, despite the fact that he knew nothing of swords and was a very indifferent pistol shot. And Hassam Ali found a way to dis- pose of John Storm. . And Zudora thought she had found a way to save- him. She found him, In the cellar, bravely trying to hitia 'bullseye target. It would have been laughable under any pther circum stance. He was not to be swerved, however- And when she threatened 'him with the police, he laughed. He knew the police of old; they would re fuse to take the affair seriously. Storm laid down his revolver and took a drink of water. Then he picked up the revolver and began pegging away. Unobserved, she drugged the drinking water. There would be no duel that night. Again she pleaded, but Storm was, firm. She pretended to give up, and departed, weeping. The next morning Bienreith was found dead In his library, strangled; and John Storm, in a dazed condition, disheveled, was arrested on the street, charged with murder, Hassam All, In his capacity of criminal investigator, accompanied by Zudora, entered with the police the scene of the crime. "Well, my child," said he, "here Is your first case. Let us see if you can handle it." Zudora, having a double Incentive, ran over to the dead man. On the floor she fdlind a scarf pin, sonic small change, and she noticed that his collar hung by the rear button. She hur riedly wrapped these three articles in her handkerchief. The peculiar green spots on his collar had aroused her curiosity. She was very unhappy. Thesdrug she had given her lover had not put him to sleep; it had merely sent him wandering about the streets through out the night, in a blank state of mind. He would not be able to (ac count for his time, and she might plead in vain that she had given him a sleeping potion to keep him in his house until all chance to fight Bien reith was gone. Several days passed. Storm moped in his cell. Truth to tell, he wasn't sure that he hadn't killed his enemy. From the moment Zudora left him un til he found himself in jail, he could remember nothing. When she told him what she had done, lie smiled and forgave her. "But you've 'got me Into a pretty pickle, little girl, and you'll have to get me out of it.'V- "I will." The marks on the collar were pen cil marks and they bothered her. Often she flung the collar vehemently from her, but she always went back to it. One day she found something on the floor in the library. At that moment she attached no significance to the find. Zigzag pencil lines on the collar. How had they come there? Before the crime? That was not quite pos sible. The German had been scrupu lously neat in his attire. She invari ably sought what was known as the mystic room when confronted by any serious problem. No sound ever reached there. A green parrot swung on a perch. He was very old and was doubtless the repository of many a strange secret. Once he muttered: "Let's get him!" Zudora thought this rather odd and began quizzing the old bird. But he refused to speak further. Near the dais stood a mechanical affair constructed something after the manner of a pinwheel. It consisted of two tubes of glass which revolved in opposite directions, filled with a brilliant diffusing violet light. This little invention was Hassam Ali's own. Today Zudora tried it on the green parrot, but the whirling lights simply tumbled the bird off his perch. She picked him up and revived him and soon forgot all about him in the re newed interest in the spotted collar. Idly she imitated the marks with the stub of pencil. And then, as if the whole world had suddenly lighted up, Zudora at last understood how Bienreith had come to 'his death. (CONTINUED TOMORROW.) DBILL IN WANAMAKER.

No mnn might hiss his wife, sister or daughter except In tho privacy of his qnn home, with the curtninR drawn. The bluo laws reigned supreme, while segre gation of the sexes was carried to the ultimnto extreme. llut old New England has little on mod ern Chicago. Last summer, amid tho laughter of tho whole country and tho satirical comment of all tho newspapers, the Lincoln Park Board built a fence out Into Lake Michigan to keep as far apart as possible the men and women who patronize Its bathing beach. Having sur vived that "ridicule, the city now pro poses to divide III picture theatres Into. not two, but threo parts, to nccomtuodnto the men and women who are together and men and women who are apart. Only tho children arc to havo tho run of the house. Without considering the anticipated ef fect of this arrangement on tho moral atmosphere of the city. It Is certainly an opportunity for the worldly education of the children. It Is a self-evident fact, checked, proved nnd sealed by experience, that If bad men aro ever good It Is In the presence of good women. Tho reverse may or may not bo truo; observers nro silent on this point. But if there Is any truth In Chief of Police Gleason's claim thift women "parasites" his word fre quent the picture shows, their conver sation with each other, as well as that of tho male section of the house, would doubtless bo, highly diverting nnd in structive to the unscgregnted children. Tho segregation project, granting It sense for tho sake of argument, would de feat Its own purpose If It had any. But as the proposal Is wholly without form and void, a thing of Joking nnd ridicule, theio is little to gain by hurling adjec tives against It. A LUBIN SENSATION. The sinking of a Herrcshoff steam yacht off Jacksonville, Fla nnd tho plunge ot a touring car from n, wharf Into the ocean are two of the sensatlonnl features of the, two-reel photoplay, "The Man From the' Sea," released by I.nbln. In order to get the proper background for the story Mr. Ltibln sent a special company to Florida ami purchased tho steam yacht to use In the big climax. As a marine spectacle tho burning ot the yacht and Its disappearance under the waves Is magnificent. Another sen sation In tho play Is the wild flight of an automobile, with two ot the leading characters' In the front seat, tho length of an old wharf and Into the ocean. In order to secure the under water pictures, where the drowned millionaire sends wire less messages to his rival on shore, It was necessary to construct a special glass jtank. The effect obtained Is startling. .ADVICE TO GIRLS. Beverly Bayne, of the Essanay Com pany, has had scores of Inquiries from girls ambitious to star In photoplays as to how she succeeded so rapidly on the motion picture stage, having Jumped al most Immediately into leading parts whlja so many others have had to work for years before settlps the training to make It possible for them to take leads. "I do not believe that any one can suc ceed without thoroughly liking the work," aha said. "The work Is a real delight to me, and while often fatiguing, I never realize this until I have finished. Every play enthuses me just as though It were a real happening, In fact. It Is a real happening to me. It Is part ot my real life, as I live every character I repre sent and actually feel that I am that person. I try to be just as natural as I am off the Btage, to be Just myself and forget all dramatlo attempts, which spoil so many ptayers. This. I believe, makes the characterization natural and realistic. PHnm ft-JfE THE EDISON COMPANY which Is my conception of art. I suppose, of course, that In stage work as In any thing else, there must bn a natural aptl tudo to achieve real success." MOVIE STATISTICS. With his appcaranco In his time-honored rolo of tho sheriff in "Bad Man Mason," "Shcr'irt" Arthur Macklcy has played this part 200 times. In 25 pictures ho has as sumed this character with tho Reliance. Moro than 10,000,000 fcot of film aro carry ing his plcturo In this Western make-up. Tho average life of a film is about 200 days, with an average of four runs a day, making $00 runs. Therefore "Sheriff Mackloy has been ground through the piojcctlng machines all over the world to tho extent of 8,000,000,000 feet, enough to reach around tho world 75 times. Doing still further, there are IS pictures to the foot. Deducting half ot all these pictures to allow for scenes In which Mr. Mackley did not appear, wo still have 61,000,000,000 times that his face has been flashed on the screen. ODDS AND ENDS. Following her first triumphant appear ance in motion pictures, in the title role of "Wlldflowcr," Marguerite Clark will nppcar again on the Famous I'lajers Paramount program December 14, In Mark Leo Luther's story, "The Crucible." tho pathetic Btory of a soul's ordeal in the melting-pot of suffering, from which tlery furnace It emerges unscathed and strengthened by Its agonies. In this pro duction, Marguerlto Clark portrays the role of Jean Fanshaw, at first hoyden and tomboy, unjustly condemned to a reforma tory, but who later triumphs' over the ahatno of her Imprisonment, nnd the sordid corruptness ot her environment, returning good for evil to those who worked havoc with her life. How she Is rewarded for her long struggle against evil and despair by tho attainment of a wonderful loie Is vividly unfolded in this unusually strong photoplay. The Famous Players havo gathered an unusually Important cast of Broadway favorites In support of John Barrymore In tho forthcoming production, "Arc You a Mason?" This cast Includes Alfred Hickman, who created the original Tlllly in the stage presentation of this play; Charles Dixon, Cbnrlps Butler. Ida Waterman, Dodson Mitchell, Helen Free man, Jean Acker. Lorraine Hultng, Harold Lockwood and Kitty Baldwin. i SOME RELEASES. The Famous Players have decided to change the release date of tho spectacu lar film version of Wilson Barrett'a Im mortal drama. "Tho Sign of the Cross," originally scheduled for release In Feb ruary, to December 21. The change was made because of the peculiar appropri ateness ot the subje'et as a pro-Christ-maa release. In the role of Marcus Su perbus, William Farnum attains the loftiest dramatic heights of his career. He 1 always noble and dignified, both In his love passages with Mercia, or when turning In fierce wrath upon his enemies and calumniators. Jtoslna Hen ley makes a sweet and womanly Mercia. Other releases scheduled for the near future Include John Emerson In 'The Conspiracy." Florence Reed In "The Dancing Girl," Marguerite Clark In "The Crucible." and Mary Doro In "The Morals of Marcus." Ella Wheeler Wilcox's poem, "The rrlce He Paid." has been filmed and will be released soon. Music of the Day Mr. Paul Draper, an English tenor, who has sung but once before In this country, came to WItherspoon Hall yes terday afternoon. Insufficient advertis ing, and perhaps a certain artistic re fusal on Mr. Draper's part to sound his own praises, brought a pitifully smalt audience. Mr. Draper deserved much more. He sang three songs xlt Schubert, sixteen of Schumann and four of Karol Szymanowskl, whom he Is brave enough to Introduce to 'this country. He sang everything well; he sang many of hht songs very well. Mr, Draper has not made the mistake of so many singers who achieve reputation and suddenly find themselves, In mid-stream, without con- trot of their voices. His production Is excellent and Unfaltering. His natural tono Is a highly colorful nnd pleasing tenor; In his htad tone., which he uses without the xentlmcntat effect whtch Is nil too common among operatic tenors, he Is capable of flno variation and sustained tones. And Mr. Draper appreciates and loves his music, and studies Its meaning, so that ho can make It his own. To sing the shifting, subtla moods of the Dlchtor Hebe cycle, to make his spirit for on hour be one with Heine's, nnd to end that with tho glorious song, "Die alten bocscn Lleder," was something of an nchlfve ment. There were perhaps n. hundred hearers of Mr. Draper. When he returns there should be a thousand. MME. HOMER'S CONCERT Mme. Louise Homer mado her second appearance hero this season nt the Acad emy of Music Inst evening In a roncert Blven for the benefit of the Children's Homeopathic Hospital. Though her pro gram contained but few selections of large musical proportions, being on the whole extremely light nnd of a popular nature. It gained everything by manner of ren dition. The most simple ballad, such as Thomas Moore's "Bendcmeer's Stream," was Bung with -splendid intuition of Its deep feeling. In addition to the opulent, clear con tralto voice that one Invariably associ ates with Mme. Homer, her confident display of artistic touches and her tin affected personality evoked n feeling of admiration. This feeling was ndtlccablo In tho nudlenco present last nlRht before tho notes of Beethoven's '"Die Ehro Got tes," tho first number, were completed. Schubcrt'fl "Dcr nrl-Koenlg" and the "Adieu Forets" nrla from Tschalkowsky'n "Jeanne D'Afo" wore sung with exquisite color nnd pathos, "When I Bring You Colored Toys" (words by Rnblndranath Tngoro), and William Barnes' qualntchar nctcr poem, "Don't Ccare," both set to musle by Carpenter, were the novelties of tho evening Tho latter song was rendered In an amusing Dorsetshire dialect. As a final encore following "Lovo In May," by Parker, Mme. Homer sang tho fnmous "My Heart at Thy Sweet Voice" nrla from Samson nnd Delilah with a remark able display of expression nnd vocal brilliance. THE KNEISEL QUARTET. The sensitive and discriminating fow who hold that chamber music Is tho high est typo of musical entertainment known to us, found n deal of Justification last night when tho Knelsol Quartot was heard nt WItherspoon Hall. Messrs. Knelsel, Sveccnskl nnd "Wllleke nro regu lar members ,of this remarkable organi zation; Mr. Samuel Gardner, taking tho place left vacant by the enforced nbsenco of Mr. Letz. has, under Mr. Knelsel's tutoring, become nn accomplished nnd able player. Last night thcro could be nd objection to finding him In such excellent compnny. Unadvertlscd and self-effnclng to an ex treme, "tho Knelsels" seem happiest when all attention goes out to tho music: when they are forgotten nnd only their accomplishment Is remembered. They achieved this last night; In the playing of tho beautiful Schumann quartet In A inn lor. of the novelty by Zoltan Kodaly and of the Mozart In E major, thcro was such an unegotistlc perfection or piav lng that It was not until the players rose nnd bowed that one recalled their work. One does not deslro to speak In superla tives of their work. It Is as It has nlways been, quietly nml sanely and superbly good. The unity of their mechanics, ns In the last movement of tho Schumann, wns n delight to the car; tho Individual play ing of Mr. Kncisel In tho Mozart finale nn.i nf Air. Wllloke In the Kodaly num- i ber, happen to come to mind. But they l were not bettor than a host of other moments, hnrdly better than tne wnoie ovenlng was. ' Tho Schumann and tho Mozart quar tets were what they were expected to be. But ot Kodaly there could hardly be ex pectations because the quartet has not been played here before. The composer Is a nationalist, one might say a Mngynr Ist, a theorist ns well as a musician, nnd n professor nt Pcsth. Ho Is convinced thnt there Is a national Magyar music, which lias been corrupted by the Insidious growth of gypsy rhythms and gypsy or namentation. ThlB quartet. It may be ns sumed. Is his proof that the Magyar music Is real nnd worthy. To consider It, first, non-tonchnlcally, It was a Joy ous piece to hear. The dissonances which, for reasons of his own, the composer I uses, nre not ear-piercing; at times they suddenly sharpen a melody so that It bites nml holds wheie n pure consonance would falter and fall away. Of the four movements, quite tradi tionally arranged, the first l least inter esting. In tho second there Is n long passage In which muted strings of tho first and second violins play high against n sustained pizzicato In tho cello and a full tone of melody In the viola. The ef fect Is strangely exotic nnd beautiful, of something passionate and tragic, some thing subtle and refined, which takes the hearer a thousand leagues from tho folk. The return Is brightly and surprisingly managed In the presto. The suggestion of the frlss the rapid movement of the Hungarian czardas Is clear, but the movement Is written In double and not triple time. This and the allegro finale are rich with humor, nnd the pulsing beat of the national dance, of folk song, and folk color and life. The last move ment Is rich In material, the composer seems to have saved up nothing, and to have thrown nil tho wealth of his fancy Into this one movement. Yet the themes combine, nnd Interweave, and play about each other, with tine freedom, and achieve In the end a certain unity of Impression. Technical Interest In a work which bo stirs and pleases as this quartet did can only bo secondary. Kodaly has stripped the Magyar themes ot the meretricious (as he thinks) ornamentation of the gyp ales. Another gypsy trick, described by the technicians as the use of an aug mented second In the scale of the minor mode, he has used sparingly and unln slstently. The third, and the essential feature of gypsy music, the dance-beat, he has kept and used to his own advan tage. The whole quartet Is based on a simple theme, first announced resonantly by the 'cello. It recurs In each movement. Inverted, now swift, now languorous, Its Intervals changed, yet always recogniz able. Its use In the plzzacato and In the tremendously boisterous and mad finale are triumphs of tho composer's genius.

Clothes Express Character on Stage "As good be out of the world as out of fashion," cried old Colly Clbber. Miss Saxone Morland, of the Little Theatra company, goes the ancient philosopher one better. Ah well bo out of the fash Ion as out of ono's Individuality. "Every typo of woman has her particular style and should cling to it. "Ono doesn't reallzo how much clothes make tho woman whatever they do whero men are concerned, until tfne has been cm tho stage." Miss Moreland con tinued, "for there, when one visualizes a role, ono Inevitably visualizes tho clothes as well. Certain colors, certain perfumes, certain lines nre an Indissolu ble part of the woman on the stage, and If tho actress In portraying some char acter falls to havo her costume appro priate to the part her lines lose half therr power. "In like fashion, the woman vho Is a slave to style, who wears a frock and a hat simply because It Is 'the thing,' loses all her Individuality and becomes merely a dummy upon which he tailor, the mo dlsto and the milliner display their wares. She docs not carry conviction because the personality Is missing. "But tho woman who expresses herself In her gowns and they need not bo outre-Impresses vividly her individuality upon oven those she comes casually In contact with, and so stands out a virile living picture In the world. "It's astonishing how. In looking back, ono finds that character and clothes are almost synonymous. One could not pic ture Beatrice In 'Hlndle Wakes.' for In stance, In anything but a blue frock. It typifies her, her glrllshncss, her youth and her simplicity. One associates vivid shades with Fanny, nnd fussy frocks with Ralna of 'Arms and the Man.' There arc both drab and vivid charac ters In life as on the stage, but you can't change them. In consequence the vivid chniacter In drab looks 111 gowned and homely, and the drab person In vivid shades Is equally unpleasant to the eye." Flashes From "Stars" Stella Hobnn, playing In "The Queen of the Movies," Is o native of Muskegon, Mich., and Is proud of the fact that she comes from what was SO years ago the greatest '.limber port In the world. Miss Hoban Is likewise proud of the fact that she was born on real ground and not tho "made" land, which was composed of slabs, edgings and sawdust the home ot untold millions of little black beetles which pciietinled everywhere and de voured everything they came across. Just before Muskigon lost Us proud position as n lumber port, Miss Hoban used to run the logs with the "river rats," as the log drivers were known, and was con iildeied to bo tho best feminine "burier" on the Muskegon River. The young singer herself has lived the life which Steward Edward White has so graphically de scilbed In his novel of the Michigan nine woods, tho existence ot which nowadays is only to be found In far-off Washing ton or Oregon. It has been decided at the Little Thea tre to follow the current attraction ot "Ulntlle Wakes" with "The Silver Box." by John Galsworthy. Instead of "Joy." as was previously announced. "The Silver Box" la considered by many students of the drama to be Galsworthy's master piece. It Is full of comedy, but hr based MODERN" DANCINO MISS MARGUERITE C.
