LITTLE MARY PIGKFORD AGAIN VISITS PHOENIX "Little" Mary Pickford, the most popular and highest priced artist ap pearing in the silent drama is assum ing the stellar role in "Hearts Adrift" a wonderful drama of tangled lives. In "Caprice" as well as in "The Bishop's Carriage" her work has been qualified by critics as the most bril liant efforts of her phenomenally suc cessful film career, but the role which she essays in "Hearts Adrift" gives even wider scope for dramatic ex pression and character delineation. It is not much too much to say she is the Maude Adams of the screen, and she has that sort of personality that captivates the hearts of her audiences intangible, but subtly effective. It has been said of her that she has never appeared in a failure and con sidering the many roles which she has created, this is indeed an enviable and unusual reputation. - Another feature of this production that will prove of more lhan passing interest to Phoenix, is the fact that the film was produced in the Los An geles studios of the Famous Players, and under the skillful direction of Ed win S. Porter, who is haled all over the country as the father of the pho toplay, having produced the first dra matic story ever shown in motion pic tures. This speaks columns for the success of the production. The film will be shown for three nights beginning tonight, and doubt less her hundreds of admirers in the city will take advantage of the oppor tunity to see their favorite in what has been termed her best portrayal. o COMMISSION ISSUES ITS ANNUAL REPORT Record of Doings of Corporation Court Fills Bulky Volume Large Number of Cases Listed, The first annual report of the Ari zona Corporation Commission, covering the period February 14, 1912, to De cember 1, 1913 has just come from the press and is now ready for distribu tion. The report fills a volume of over 1050 pages, and contains a detailed re cord of the .action of the commission for the 22 months period. It is stated in the report that proba"bly no other railway or corporation commission in the country has as great and varied an amount of duties to perform. In addition to the laws defining the commission's powers, and a large body of corporation laws, the report con tains the insurance and investment company laws of the state, and the rules of procedure of the commission. A large number of pages are taken up with the report of special and general orders, and over .100 are devoted to the record of docket cases before the com mission. A brief history of every railroad op orating in the state, showing mileage, principal officers and capital stock and funded debt is included after the rail road accident reports, classification of railroad and electric railway accounts are also given. In addition a complete report of the insurance companies do ing business in the state is found in the report. Over 1000 companies have been in corporated in Arizona since the com- ! mission took over the work of the in corporating department. The fees re ceived from this business alone amount to $120,831.50. Fees received from in surance companies amounted to $82,- 411.18 for the period named. A report of cases filed with the In terstate Commerce commission to gether with orders issued by that body is also incorporated with the report of the Arizona commission. o BIRTHS EXCEEDS DEATHS (Continued from Page One) the totals being eighty-five deaths to seventy -seven births. There is incorporated with the tables an article by Dr. John W. Flinn of Prescott, superintendent of public health for Yavapai county, on the relation of vital statistics to pre ventive medicine. In his paper. Dr. Flinn reviews the Work of the past five years in the gathering of vital statistics in Arizona, and says that the state law providing for this work has proved a marked success. Under the system the numbev of births and deaths not registered is said to !e very small indeed. Formerly, while nearly all deaths were reported, a complete record of births was not obtained, and the birth rate appeared to be less than it really was. Regis trars over the stats are now more careful to make a full report, with the result that the birth rate seems to be increasing more rapidly than would at first glance appear. Causes of death to the number of thirty-seven, are given in the mor tality table.' Of these the most po tent cause of death is intestinal dis eases, tuberculosis being second. In fluenza and smallpox caused only one death each. Relative to the importance of vital statistics to preventive medicine, Dr. Flinn says In part: Vital statistics have been called "the book-keeping of humanity." Dr. Cressy L. Wilbur, of the bureau of the census at Washington, refers to them as "our greatest public health need." He says, "They teach us where untimely deaths occur, and where, by the application of hygienic knowledge now in our possession the occurrence of many such deaths may be prevented." The whole work of sanitation is closely linked to and is absolutely dependent upon re liable vital statistics; and the very first duty of a modern, progressive public health service, whether of the nation, Btate or city, is to see that proper provision is made for the ef fective registration of vital stitlstics, and ,that laws for this purpose are fully executed, NOTICE TO BOND BUYERS SALE OF DISTRICT NUMBER SIXTY-SIX SCHOOL BONDS Notice is hereby given that sealed bids will be received at the office of the Board of Supervisors of Mar icopa County, in the city of Phoe nix, Arizona, until eleven o'clock A.
