On SavingNo. 7
We are all of us putting: off until tomor:
row manana something we ought to do
today. ,
We knov we ought to save part of our pres
ent earnings, and we worry about the
future if we don't do it, but we just don't
get at it and do it. If anyone should tell
us to our faces that we had good intentions,
but mighty poor will power, we would re
sent it but it may be the precise truth it
certainly is quite true that it takes strong
will power to save money, and that a
START must be made. The most attractive
thing in the world is saving when your am
bition is on fire and your determination ia
aroused. It's a game you play with delight
when based on a purpose to be accomplish
ed, and a plan that is working out.

phenomenon, which, after uncertain
and irregular development." by var

the motion picture a practical pos

as th.- continuity of persistence of
human vision. To ipioie from the
writing of the famoiie French Pro

ions to enjoy the show 'without that
stuffy feeling experienced when the
air is not thoroughly ri novated.
Returning to the pictures them
selves. Very few persons who pat
ronize moving picture theatres have
any idea of the size of the picture
in the film, which is thrown on the
screen lifesize. A picture on the fbm
is about one inch wide (here is a
sample of exposed negative and a
1 iece not exposed) and three-fourths
of an inch -high. There are about
fifteen of these sma.ll pictures to a
foot of film and the regular length
of a leel is one thousand feet. A
thousand foot reel is shown in fif
teen minutes. Therefore, when look
ing at a picture on the screen, you
see one thousand pictures every min
ute, or fifteen thousand pictures to
eiei'v reel.
The pictures are handled by several
combinations of manufacturers, the
largest nun. her being grouped into
three companies: the Motion Pietjre
Patents company, better known as
tiie Trust or tienera! Film company:
the t'niversal Program, and the Mu
tual Program. The pictures are
leased to the different exchanges,
mostly owned by these combinations
at so much a foot. The exchanges,
which are located practically all ovev

cities in their territory, at so much

Sir Gilbert 1'arker.
"The almighty heart is slil'
stronger in the United States than
the almighty dollar,", recently de
clared Sir Gilbert Parker, the Can
adian novelist, in a speech in London.
"The American government has pur
sued the only course possible to a
nation desirous of preserving its de
servedly high reputation in the field
of diplomacy. It has been in true
sympathy with the high mindedness
and sensible idealism of the Ameri
can people in regard to the great,
events of the world'.; history.".
important points in e cry branch of
education. Also in medical colleges,
sanitariums, and asylums, you will
find machines m use for the educa
tion and entertainment of tiie inmates
us well as the corps of workers Many
churches have adopted this modern
method of illustrating vital points in
a text, and the penitentiaries have
been using this method of entertain
ment and enlightenment for some
time. All Fnited States battleships,
as w ell as t rans-ullan I ic lim rs, are
installing picture machines for the
amusement of the sailors and pas
sengers. Incle Sam has ordered
motion pictures for tht army officers
to illustrate their lectures to the
National Guards. The government
has also employed a manufacturer to
l eproduce some of the1 famous Indian
I attles of the West, to be taken on
the original battle fields with as
many of the surviving participants in
it as possible, the pictures to be pre
served in Washington, and used for
the iii.-truction of future genera 'ions.
A contract lias been made by the
government with the "Rathe Freres"
to furnish oifferent views in moving
pictures of the Panama, canal at the
different stages of completion, these
pictures to be kept as official re
cords. I very recently read an ar
ticle stating that a French manufac
turer has contracted with a rail
road company to install on all trans
Siberian and 'ZA hour trains. The
Xew York Telegraph slated recently
that motion pictures had been taken
of the l'iots in ( iihuado during the
recent miners strike there, these pic
tures to be used for the purpose of
identifying parties taking part in this
disturbance. I could continue t-poak-in'g
of the various uses to which
motion pictures are put for an in
definite time. Nothing ever invented
has done so much to enlarge the
smpe of the average man's knowledge
ci' things as they are. Thru the
medium of pictures t see strange
people in their home lands; we learn
their customs and see them, not thru
pril l, but as tho we were with them.
The important happenings of the
world are brought to our threshold
in exact repi oiltiet ions of the reality.
We learn the habits of strange ani
mals; we see them in their search for
food and watch them rear their young
all unconscious of the watchful eye
of the never-sleeping camera. We
see on the screen prominent actors
anil actresses, who, a few years ago
would hav1 highly resented even a
hint that there was any probability
of their appearing in the "movies."
