13 PHOTOPLAYS AND . PHOTOPLAYERS ' By GARDNER MACK. THE BEST Photoplay Department in WASHINGTON Mary Boland Thinks Picture Director Lives Life of Hardship Every actor or actress who enter motion picture work, temporarily or with tho Idea of adopting It perma nently, finds something now that as tonishes and usually something dif ferent. Tho realism, tho out-of-door work, the regular hours, tho possi bility of having a permanent resi dence and the hard work that is re quired havo all been commented on by those who havo spoken- for pub lication. There have been few actors or actresses who havo had much to say about tho motion picture direc tor, however. That Is, there have been few actors and actresses who needed to hold jobs In motion pic tures who would talk about direc tors. They have frequently had much to say but npt tho kinds of things that would bo either politic or polite. Mary Boland, the young actress Washtngtpnlans remember as the leading woman for John Drew sev eral seasons and last year the star In "My Lady's Dress," has recently gone to Los Angeles to appear in a special picture production and she has been particularly struck with the work of a motion picture direc tor. Especially has Miss Boland been impressed by Thomas H. Ince. Miss Boland has become tho cham pion of the director. She thinks ho has been a much abused person in the past and is anxious to see that lie is given a square deal. "With all his faults she thinks he is entitled to credit for lemainlng human and a director at the same time. "Nobody in the world, who -ha not made pictures a business," Bald Miss Boland recently, "can under stand the hardships of a director' life He takes the whole responsi bility of the- picture .upon himself and he requires unlimited energy of body and brain. Ife thinks out everybody's work and carries the whole play In his head. Weeks he roic a picture is begun he takes tho manuscript home and figures out as many as four or five hundred scepes. For each of these he must decide upon a location and for every character in a play that may require 2,000 people he must chooso his man and his woman. Yes, and he mUBt sometimes decide upon many children, some of them less than, a year old. He must know where to find crooked men anl straight men, dwarfs, giants, haid faces and noble ones, stately men and persons without dignity, wom en of beauty and those of les beauty, young women who can bo old and older women who can dis semble youth. Indians, Chinamen, dogs with superior Intelligence anJ ponies who know more than their riders. "The director must have a com posite oraln, if not a cosmic one when he has finally assembled this yaat array of nondescript talent he must be able to beat it into shape." G. M.

(Continued from TcBtcrday.) His deep eyes flowed now with fa natic lire. Lamar, despite his gay cour ago, felt tho cold chill of fear that as sails most normal men at contact with tho Insane. "If you have a God," went on tho terrible slow voice, "make ready to rncot him!" Borden, as ho spoke, raised the re volver a few Inches, and his linger tightened on the trigger. Lamar, gath ering all his strength lunged suddenly forward, clutching Jim's wrist and twisting it to one sldeThe bullet went wild. In anotner instant, mo tame was overturned, and tho two men, locked. In furious embrace, wore lighting for possession of the weapon. Up and down tho, little room they reeled nml lurched, now smashing a 1 chair under their trampling feet; now sending a slrowcr of plaster from the molding wait as they fell against it. I Jim fought llko a crazed wildcat; Lamar, with all the cool science of a trained athlete. Max could not wrench away tho weapon, try as he would. Twice more. In tho tierce struggle. It ' exploded. But botli times tho ball flew , harmless Into lloor or wall. Presently, in tho deathlock, Lamar's fingers found the catch that held the pistol's cylinder in place. Ono sharp uressuro and he had "broken" the re volver. Bending tho remaining car tridges pattering harmless to the floor. I Jim released his hold on the uscJcbs weapon and snatched with both hands for Lamar's throat. But before the grip could bo gained, or guarded, he recoiled a step, his eyes glassy and staring; his wild gaze fixed on some- . thing behind Max. 1 Up through the trapdoor two police men were climbing summoned by Sudsy as they had stood chatting to gether on a street corner. I 1111 U. 1UI l "J. . w ... .-..- . ed up tho overturned -table and hurl ed It Wltll all nis rorcc ui ine cnare lng pollcomen; then followed up that brief advantage by making a dash for the unguarded trapdoor. The foremost polloeman caught the flung table glanclngly on his upraise.! arm.-Htaggered under the Impact, then diew his pistol and turned to help his lomrado who had grappled Borden at tho very entrance to the trap. Lamar did not join In the triple tight. His keen nostrils hud caught the smell of escaping gas. He re membered all at on.ee what Borden had said: "My son is (In that bedroom dying!" And he ran to the bed room door, opened it 'and entered. The two policemen, stalwart as thev were, found "Circle" Jim unexpected! hard to subdue. Tho old man was tlehtlng like a beast at bay. Nor was he fighting to escape, for he made no move to tear himself free from his otmonents. Instead, he seemed to be trying to get hold of the pistol that one of tho two policemen still held. He did not succeed in tearing the gun away from the policeman. But he did manage to catch the latter s pistol hand In both of his own. Then while the double weight cf Mb foes was upon him and while both men battled sturdllv to force him to the ground Jim Borden called on every ounce of his great strength for one final effort. Like Samson of old, he put for'h his power of muscle. And, before hti captors could so much as guess his Intent, he had twisted the policeman's hand toward him, so that the pistol muzzles pressed against his .own body just above the heart. The same wrench enabled Jim to force aside the policeman's trigger finger. His own forefinger flipped Inside the trigger guard. One pressure of the finger and the shot was fired. The policemen relaxed their hold, as Jim Borden spasmodically leaped into the air and staggered backward, a .41 bullet through his heart. The big oi-i 'mrtled to tho floor and lay there. "Circle" Jim Borden, cornered, had killed himself and with the very pistol with which his opponents had sought to overawe him. He lay stone dead. His rigjit hand was convulsively clench ed above tho wound on his breast. As the horriflod policemen watched the angry color of the Hed Circle on the back of tho hand gradually faded into tho samo livid huo fc tho rest of the flesh. The officers were roused from the mo mentary reaction following their death battlo by tho appearance or'Lamar, who reeled out of tho bedroom, a gush of pungent gas-reck pnvcloplng him. In his arms Max bore a lifeless body. Tho body of Ted Borden. Entering tho bedroom, Lamar had been well-nigh overcome by tho fumes of gas that had by this time turned the tiny place into a veritable asphyxiation chamber. lie had caught up the one rickety chulr, and stilling and dizzy, had smash ed open the window with It. After lean ing out for a moment, to get back his brqath and to steady the whirling of his brain, he had crossed to the bed, seized Ted's limp body and had borne it out to the purer air of the next room. There he laid the boy beside his fath er, and, kneeling, felt his pulso and listened at the narrow chest for sound of heartbeats. Presently ho rose, a new solemnity In his alert eyes. Turning to the two panting officers, ho said, very quietly: "Our work here Is done. They are both dead. It is it is the end of the Red-Circle!" The double Inquest was over. The last report was made. Max Lamar's wot-k of "keeping an eye" on Jim Bor den was finished for all time. From Dollco headnuartera he set out toward his own office. Tho horror of the. Red Clrclo tragedy was etill heavy upon him. His own part In it and. his nanow escane from death had' left a mark on his usually steady nerve. He was tired of gruesome mVatfrie. Ho wanted something to taKe his mind off the events of the past two days. June Travis had asked him to call. He intended to take her at her word Tr. iHrl' Imne-p neemed strangely Im pressed on his heart ant' upon his every thought.
