9 PHOTOPLAYS AND PHOTOPLAY ERS By GARDNER MACK, ' . Hopper Declares His Infant Son Led Him Into ,the Photoplays. Placing tlio responsibility for his motion picture career on 'hin Infant Is a brnnd-new excuse for a, well Known nctor to Klvo for descrying ths stage, but it was recently sprunjx with great seriousness by De Wolf ' Hopper during the course of a littie confab at the Lambs' Club In Xow . York recently. "Like the old excuse for goln co the circus. I'm dplnn it for the youngster's saltc," explained .Mr. Hopper when he was asked "why he had deserted comic opera In acneral and Gilbert & Sullivan In particu lar for the motion picture studio. Hut this explanation did not ring true especially to the prop! who know Hopper. The fact Is that by one of the curious chan6ci ,r ate Hopper Is to have opportunity of do me for motion pictures What he has failed to do on the statre to appear in serious comedy, character crea tions. And he likes It over so much. While the Work he hhs been doing in tho past few seasons 03 the stntre in placing again before tho public the bis things, of the Gilbert & Sullivan operatic output was a blur thing- and he regarded it an such; and while hti efforts met with unusual success, at the same time Hopper could not forc-go the old ambition to appear in serious comedy 'characters, and 1 D. W. Griffith and the Triangle Com pany have given him the opportunity to do It. "Since I've finished 'Don Quixote,' my enthusiasm for the now art isn't all prop enthusiasm," Hopper declares, "for I begin to see the meaning of pictures. Formerly 1 hadn't much use for them because I saw them only as a foe that was making the gallery melt away. Now I'm convinced that I want to do .some serious work for the screen. From Cervantes Mr. Grif fith has transferred mo to an orig inal American comedy called 'Sun nine Dad.' That's me. Latur, how ver. I hope to play Falstaff In Henry IV and 'The Merry Wives of Windsor.' I'd like also to dou ble as Peggoty and Mlcawber In a film version of VDavd Copper field.' "In moving from the legitimate stage to the pictures 1 missed my voice more than anything else, but In expressing emotions with my face the relentless eye of the cam ra had no terrors for me." Carlyle Blackwell is the possessor of a monocle which he will cherish as long as he lives. He didn't want It and he Winces every time he sees it hanging from the mirror of his chiffonier but he will keep It and will let no one touch It. Thoso photoplay patrons who saw Blackwell In the production of "Mr. Grex of Monte Carlo." which was recently exhibited here on the Paramount program, will remem ber rather distinctly that he didn't seem to be wearing a monocle. He was supposed to wear one, how- ever, and tho one 'that hangs on his chiffonier is the- 'one lie was supposed tA wear. He had for gotten all about the monocle part of hip costume. Just before it came time to take the picture he remembered It and asked Laura Hope Crews of the Lasky forces to get him one, as Miss Crews hap. pened to be making a hurried trip down' town. She did so. And she ca"v?

It was mounted in gold and hid u jolrt chain. When Blackwell took It from the actress' hands he reiohed in his pocket for half a dollar to pay for It. tho proper price for a mon ocle. "How much?" he asked. Only 14." sweetlv answered Miss Crews, holding out her hand for the money, "wasn't it cheap for such a beauty?" And Blackwell paid her and walked through his seen" In a daz but wearing the monocle in his pocket where the JH had recently been' O.

Relief in Tuberculosis depends largely on the sufferer's abil ity to upbuild a weakened system, ar.d thus hasten n return of natural func tioning throughout tho body. In this effort much depends on tho remedial value of fresh air night and day and rest and good food. Tho patient should refrain from work that overtaxes, and all sanitary precautions should be taken. These commonsense measures aro approved by doctors everywhere, but thoy do not always achieve the desired results unless aided by proper medlcatlqn, It is here that Kckman's Alterative has evidenced Its worth, for In many cases of tuberculosis It has effected lasting benefit. Numerous cases of apparent recov ery are recorded in Its favor.

I.acr Says One Dose of Mayr Itemed? Ended III Troubles. William H. Lacy, of Washington, L. C, for three years suffered from de rangements of the stomach and diges tive tract. He was threatened with an operation. He tried Mayr's Wonderful Remedy. In a short time he declared he had been restored. He wrote: "I have suffered tjtree years evety day with a mlserablo feeling and was treated by the best doctors, whom I know made somb wonderful cures, but gave me no relief. "Three weeks ago they sent for a surgeon to operate on me. I read of your treatment and I took a bottle. Whatever there was the matter with me has disappeared, and I feel as well as ever. They say 1 am a little aged' I am C3 years old. I fuel as well as I ever did In my life." Mayr's Wonderful Remedy gives pet manent results for stomach, llvor, and Intestinal allmnt3.

While I was In my vault Just now. the door was shut nn niti n nrl n lot of notes of people who owe -mo money were stolen out of my desk." iAmar. to whom tales of robbery were nn old story, moved back to tho window, taklnx the llcenso book with him. He was more interested in tracinn the auto mobile number than In listening to a loan shark's tale of woe. Grant thun dered on: "M.v clerk says ho saw a veiled woman go Into my office. Hhe was seen com inc nut ncnln with a. handful of docu ments bound up In a rubber band. And when I went down to mv car." he con tinued In mounting excitement, "she'd nln thnt. ton.

It cost me $6,500 three months ago. I " . "What was the number?" asked the chlof, taking out a pencil and drawing a- scratch-pad toward him. "The number1 of my car? It was 12CC94." ' "The" deuce It was!" cried Iamar. dropping the license book and striding forward. "You're sure of that? 8ure7" "Of course, I am. It's my car. Its number is 126694. Why? Do you know anything, about it?" Disregarding the question, Latnar produced a card and handed it to Chief Allen. "That's the number I Jotted down." he said. "The number of the car with the Hod Clrrle woman la It." "ISfiCM!" read the chief. "What' that? What's that?" de manded Grant eagerly. "What are you tnlktnc about, you two? How did vou get my license number on that card 7 Brusquely he snatched the card from thn chief. It slipped from his owkward Anger as he grasped It. and fell to the floor beneath the window sill. Grant stooped to pick it up. As ho rose, his gaze fell on tho busy street Just outside, with Its hurrying traffic on ldewalk and asphalt. At the same moment n big automobile wriggled out of tv vehicle-Jam and flashed past the window. Grant gave one Incredulous look, then bawled: "There's my car! There It is. now! See?"

University A large majority of the students o't George Washington University are em ployed and are working their way through college", according to statistics just compiled by Prof. Richard Cobb, secretary of the institution. This per centage is one of the largest. If not the largest, of any educational Institution of its type in the United States. The statistics show that of the 1,723 students enrolled in the nine depart ments at the time the Investigation was made, 1,196 were employed, leaving only &27 unemployed. Nearly all the employ ed students attend the late afternoon classes, although there are some stu rientx who attend the university during the day and work at night. The ma-J Jorlty of the students are in the Govern- ment service. Are You Giving Your Best to Your Work? Can you do your best if your mind is dulled by auto intoxicatioli ? Is it any wonder that you set "too tired to think' if all the while your blood is oathing every nerve, every brain cell, every muscle fibre with the fermented poisons and wastes of constipation ? The only way to keep your body rid of decaying waste matter permanently is by bringing about natural, regular action of the intestines. Laxatives, purges, and cathartics bring temporary relief but they bring also an inevitable reaction which leaves the machinery of evacuation weaker and more dependent upon the repetition of the stimulation. Nuiol, a tasteless, colorless and odorless mineral oil, is the natural treatment for constipation. It acts by lubricating, not irritating. Physicians everywhere arc discarding the use of violent purges in favor of the mineral oil treatment which has the endorsement of the highest medical authorities.
