June nt the Walnut It looks very much as If "The Trail or tho Lonesomo IMne" was to bo one of those fortunate pieces that return year after year to gladden playgoers and play w right. Certainly Kugene Walter must bo very well satisfied with the results of tho work ho put Into making John Fox, Jr.'s novel over Into drama. Lost night the Walnut showed us lsa bcllo Lowe as a charming June, living the open life of tho Cumberland Gap with all tho barefooted enthusiasm that !b doubtless native to tho Inhabitants and that pretty actresses delight to show, Thero was the properly Imndsomo hero to plungo Into lovo with June and tho middle of a feud both at once. There wero sullen mountaineers and a groat deal of talk of "llckerln' up." nnd, of course, that excellently conceived setting which shows tho Lonesomo Pino at tho top of the gap. It Is that as much as anything which catches nnd holds that breath of tho Southern mountains which fills tho play. VAUDEVILLE Keith's If there Is such a thing as holding an nudlcnco In tho palm of your hand, Mrs. Lcsllo Carter did It figuratively Inst night nt Keith's. Sho went from laughter to rngo consistently llko a woman who loves without a conscience nnd was master nt nil times of tho delicate scenes which go to mnko Zaza, the tale of hopeless lovo, an offering worth while In vaudeville. Tho star was capably supported by Hamilton Itevellc, William Lorcnz nnd Miss Dolaro Belnsco. Numerous curtain calls rowarded tho entlro cast. When applause Is considered as an Illustration of appreciation, Ed Mor ton "cleaned up" tho show, which. In tho vernaculnr of vaudeville, means that he mudo a bigger lilt than anything nlso on tho bill. All ho uses Is n dross suit, a smile nnd songs which tell stories. He could have sung on Indefinitely last night If it were not for the fact that other acts were scheduled to appear. Morton Is a Philadclphlan, hut this had nothing to do with tho genuine punch which ho hnnded over tho footlights. Thero have been all sorts of "Lady Dnlntys" nnd "Society Queens," "Bits of Dresden China," etc., announced on vaudeville programs, but It Is' doubtful If any of them can touch Miss Hazel Cox, who sings new songa with a charm nnd stylo which made her at once nn im menso favororito. As all other titles havo been stolen sho could justly bill herself na Miss Simplicity. Blckel and Watson, who delighted so many In the Ziegfeld Follies, kept the laughs moving in a discordant musical act. fJeorge Wood, diminutive comedian, gavo some clever character studies with a European tinge; Lyons and Yosco, un doubtedly the best "Italian" net In vaudeville, showed how easy It was to get applause when you havo merit to back It up. The Okabo Japs did some marvelous acrobatic feats, and the re mainder ot the bill Included Cole and Denahy and Mooro and Young. Here and There Scenic surprises nnd good musical num bers combine to moke "A Night in the Alps," tho headline feature at tho Cross Keys, a highly entertaining production. There Is a llttlo story Interwoven which adds to the merit of the act. The songs and stories of Harry Jolson proved a good contrast. Others who won favor were tho Five Musical MacLarens, Howard Lane nnd Company, The Brooklyn Comedy Four nnd tho Three Melvln Brothers, acrobats. Tho trouble caused by simply missing a train was entertainingly explained by Tim McMahon and Edith Chapelle at tho Olobe. Grace and harmony wore brought out In the act of Fletcher Norton and Nina Payne. Of equnl merit were tho offerings of Besslo and Harriett Rempel, In "When Wo Two Grow Up." May Melville, In character Impersonations, nnd Gralg and Williams, who show that foolishness Is more welcome than the serious things of the day. Miniature representations of many of tho present stars are shown In "The Lawn Party," which won favor at the Nixon Grand. The net overflows with singing, dancing nnd comedy. McMahon, Diamond and Chaplow, with their ani mated scarecrow, scored a big hit which was deserved. Others who won applauso were Devlno and Wllllnms, in "The Traveling Salesman;" Norcross and Holdsworth, nnd Madame Blalta, In "The Artist's Dream. -4- There Is an abundance of novelty In "A Dream of Tho Orient," presented by Mndnme Makarenko and company at tho William Penn. The act Is lavishly staged and won deserved appreciation, Tho audience was kept in happy mood by Eddlo Carr and company In "The New Office Boy." Vaughan Comfort and John King repeated their former success In "Coontown Dlvorcons"; Harry Breen of fered ''crazylsms and song;" Hallen nnd Hunter dispensed classical and up-to-date music satisfactorily, and Epsey and Paul also won favor.

For 17 long, wenry years sho has pur sued uninterruptedly tho work of reliev ing tho distress of tho poor of her dis trict, and now for the first time since blio constituted herself their guardian, sho Is not tripping her way from door to door, leaving a cheery word horo or a basket of food there, or both, If they happen to bo needed. Clght weeks ago, whllo going tho rounds, she contracted a cold which developed Into pneumonia, aggravated by bronchitis. But It would tako more than n severe case of pneumonia nnd bron chitis to dampen the ardor of Mrs. M. V. Ketchum. ' Tho realization that this has been the hardest season her pcoplo havo ever had to combat hns Inspired her with tho strength nnd energy of several healthy women nnd from the vantage point of her bed sho Is looking after not only the 300 fnmlllcs whoso names are on tho books of tho Richmond Soup Society, but several hun dred others who have turned to her in their hour of need, whllo n disapproving doctor nnd a horrified nurse look on hclplos3 to stop her. All day long tho telep'nono nt her bed side rings. It may be the 21th Police Dis trict, who has found a starving family and wants to ask tho Angel's advice In the matter of providing for them, or It may bo tho principal of McClcllan School with several underfed, under clothed children on their hands. Downstairs, Mrs. Ketchum's dining room Is always filled with tho dregs of humanity, and resembles most of tho tlmo an overcrowded employment ngency. Men, women and children who have walked tho streets in vnln wind up here, wondering if this good woman will be able to get them food and work, And she usually does. , "Only the other day," sho said, In tho Intervals of answering Insistent calls on DANCE NEW CZARINA WALTZ UNITES LANGUOROUS WITH THE GAY This article is the thirteenth of a series on Anna Pavlowa's New Social DanceB and How to Perform Them, which appear on Tuesdays and Thursdays exclusively in this neivspaper.

Peoplo who have never worn cast-off garments In their lives beforo aro coming to her house at 302t Frankford avenue and begging for shoes, for underwear, for coats.

The counts In this first figure are one, two, three-four, five, six one. two, three four, five. six. Tho lady moves for ward, starting with the right foot, and the cavalier goes backward, beginning with his left foot. The first two count units (from one to six) carry the dancers In a line ot straight direction In regula tion waltz time, and with fairly ahort steps. The second two count units (be ing tho second group of counts from one to six) consist of a raising of tho bodies of the dancers on the toes and lowering them two times each. The lady, moving forward, takes six short forward Eteps of marked smooth ness and with just enough dipping to Im part elements of grace. These steps are one. two, three (right, left, right), four, five, six (left, right, left). On (ho next six counts the lady rises on her toes, tho feet being close together, tho rising and lowering coming- once on each three counts as: One, two, three (rise fully on the toes), four, five, six (lower until flat of feet rests on floor). The second unit of one, two, three four, five, nix Is a repetition ot this rising and lowering movement. Except that the cavalier Is moving backward, and that he Is stepping on the foot opposite that used by his lady, he goes through the same evolutions. In tha next article we will tako up fig ure two.

Tho curious onlookers took the yeggman for a repair man sent to open the safe, which were left In the store by Albert 3. Martin, ft Jeweler. Taking out a kit of tools, tha man at tacked the. combination of the largo safe, and. falling to open It, turned bis atten tion to the smaller one.

The school as a "socialized ngency for human betterment" was described by William D. tewls, principal of tha Wil liam Penn High School for CJIrls, at the luncheon meeting of the Poor Ttlchard Club, 2.T3 South Comae street, today. "Tho old idea thnt Instruction Is the only pur pose of education is getting a good many Jars Just now," he said. "As the warring nations of Europe train their fighters, perfect their armaments, requisition private property, raze towns to give unobstructed fields for gunfire, so we, In our schools ,must bum Into tho souls of American children the principles of domderncy, so we must fuse the di verse ores Into nn armor of Invulnerable national unity, so we must drill and arm the soldiers of our social, economic nnd political righteousness," Mr. Lewis declared. He exptalncd how this point of view affects the course of study, the organization nnd the discipline of a sohool. The definition of an uneducated man given by Prof. William James was quoted by tho spenkrr "one who Is nonplussed by nil but the most habltuat situations." "Apply that definition to a. good many graduates of the old-time classical school and seo If they squnre up perfectly with James' Idea of an educated man," Mr. Lowls said. HIGH COST OF HOARDING LESSENS RAILROAD TRAVEL Director Tolls N. J. Utility Commis sion Reason for Rate Increase. TrtENTON, Feb.

I'ierson Taylor, living In tho vicinity of Pomborton, also a director of the road, tried to show that tho directors of this rood received more money tlinn tho di rectors of tho Pennsylvania Hnllrond Company.

Chafey: "Isa't It a fact that Mr. Qasklll, tho president, n man on crutches, receives $2400 a year salary ovcr n road only 21 miles long?" Mr. Chnfpy said ho did not know how much the directors received nt the present tlmo. Mr. Taylor said that no farmer ovcr laid out a corn field as rough as this roadbed.

HORSES' INDIVIDUAL CUPS Device Is Installed to Prevent Spread of Disease, Horse sense Is a good thing to have. Numerous Old Dobbins, all over the city, heard of the foot nnd mouth disease among cows, so they decided to tako steps to prevent nnythlng spreading among themselves. After thinking the matter over carefully In their stalls, they came to the conclusion that nn Individual drink ing cup would be one ot tho best things to prevent Infection.

Queries will not be answered by let ter. All letters must be addressed to Photoplay Udltor, KvitNtno LrctxiEm J. LOUIS BREITINGER Chief Stato Photoplay Censor. The question of photoplay censorship Is approaching n crisis rapidly. Next Friday afternoon, nt the Forrest Theatre there will ho n mass-moctlng open to all interested, nt which this problem will be discussed by tho president of tho Nntlonnl Hoard of Censor, Mr. Breitlngcr, tho State censor, and representatives of tho photoplay Industry. Films will be shown to provo the contention of the manu facturers nnd exhibitors that cutouts aro unjustifiable and thnt censorship works undue hardships. Tho entire matter of censorship Is nn open question, capable of argument until doomsda.v. It Is tho contention of tho motion plcturo men thnt State supervision Is uncoii'rtltutlonnl. In thnt It contravenes the section of the Constitution guarantee ing freedom of tho press untl speech. They hold thnt n movie film Is printed matter; thnt it is a dissemination of news and that ns such It ennnot be censored any more than n newspaper. On tho other side of the question Is tho argument thnt certain features shown In ninny Alms, such as ovcremphnsts of crime, suggestive incidents nnd the llko. should and must be kept from a mixed audience. Then, too, it is asserted that if tho censor law now prevailing In this Stntr wero voided, police supervision would entail endless confusion and ex pense. It is nrgued that a film which might pass tho police nt Bryn Mawr, would bo cut or stopped in toto at Jenkln town nnd vice versa, until the exchange man would not know where he stood. "There Is n new bill to be introduced In the Loglslnturo noxt week," said Censor Breltlnger, "which will alter materially tho present law. To begin, It will reduce CRACKSMEN BLOW SAFE IN SIGHT OF POLICE STATION Hammer Away Merrily and Undis turbed Vithout Meeting Success. Police have no terrors for cracksmen who broke into the cigar manufacturing establishment of Cauirield & Bralstead, directly across from the 15th and Vino streets station house, nnd after leisurely trying to force the safe without success, walked out with n bag containing 100-pen-nles nnd several odds and ends which were lying about loose. Because tho Intruders operated right under, thu noses of the bluccoats and left behind tools which must have made con siderable noise when they tried to ham mer through tho safe door with them, the police say tho cracksmen wore boys. Their belief Is strengthened, they claim, by the fnct that besides the pennies the burglars took along with them nn inner tube for nn automobile tire and several empty cigar boxes. Officials of the cigar concern aro at a loss to undestand why the nttentlon of the police was not nttracted, as the safe bears evldonce ot having been attacked vigor ously from tho side and rear with a huge hammer. This, they claim, should havo made enougli nolso to reach City Hall. MARRIED AT CITY HALL Charles B. Crier, a merchant, and nnd Miss Sue II. Coles, a school teacher, both of AVoodstown, N.

At present, evory exchange In the State must ay Its pro rata share of the cost Uridef the new law, tha State would pay this. Then, too, duplicate films cost T2.t0' each for examination. Tha now law will make a material reduction whether to 11 or even to B0 cents, I cannot say ns yet. I will do all I can to assist tho Industry. "Thero Is nn erroneous Impression tnfli I am purposely Imposing undtte hardship on the exchanges. This Is not so. I am doing everything the law allows to help. Let mo quota one concrete example'. There was raised a qutatlon to my right to charge IS.E0 for each duplicate film. In stead of placing tho money thus obtained In the Stato Treasury, from which only a special act of tho Legislature could have released it, I put tho money thus obtained Into a trust fund, pending a. Judicial aef tlement of tho question." Some Local Censoring; Discussing the matter further, Mr, Breltlnger furnished the following cut outs made by him recently; Eliminate burning torch placed by small boy In bundle of hay.

Boxoflicc CIinnRcs Nnmc The Box Office Attraction Company, of which William Fox Is president, last week took legal action to change tho name of the concern to Fox Film Corporation. Tho company, whlrh Is Incorporated un der tho laws of New York State, at tho same tlmo Incrcnsed Its capital stock from $300,000 to $1,600,000. Tho change ot name was the result ot e. desire to obtain a less unwleldly nomenclature for the concern, Smalleys Resign Lois Weber nnd Phillips Smalley have severed their connection with Bosworth, according to telegraphic reports from Los Angeles. It is rumored that the talented pair may return to the Universal Com pany, but neither of them would discuss tho question. They contemplate taking a long rest nt their Hollywood home, and will tako a motor trip to San Diego and San Francisco to see the expositions be fore taking up nny new work. Although "Hypocrites" ranks as the most notable jUm they contributed to the Bosworth productions, they have done remarkable work In many other photoplays for the same company. GEORGIA ASKS HIGH COURT TO IGNORE FRANK'S APPEAL Attorneys Declare Conviction Should Be Allowed to Stand. WASHINGTON, Feb. 23. Warren Grice, Attorney General of Georgia nnd Hugh M. Dorsey. Solicitor for Fulton County filed a reply todny to the aprcal of Leo M. Frank from the verdict convicting him of the murder of Mary Phagan, an At lanta factory girl, in' which the United Ptates Supreme Court la nsked not to dls-. turli the decision of the Supreme Court of Georgia upholding tho verdict. Attorneys for both sides were In court ready lo argue tho appeal, but It was not expected that it would be reached beforo Thursday because of cases that precede It on the docket. The brief nrguca that State courts have held uniformly that tha absence of a defendant from court when a verdict Is returned does not vitiate tho trial, and that it also has been held that a defendant may waive his presence. rnoTorLAYn THE TIOGA vKNANoo stb PliUa.'a Flntit J Eiclutlue.Pliotaplav Thealrr.
