a PHOTOPLAYS AND PHOTOPLAY ERS By GABDNER MACE. Practical Sample of How Some Picture- Plays Are Built Without Script Those aspiring, nhotoplaywrlghta Who burn midnight oil and spend many dollars In stamps for the purpose- of Bonding out manuscripts would havo a rude awakening If they could onco set Into a studio and see Just how a number of photoplays are really made. This applies to most of the directors Including some of the most notable In the business. The mere Idea of a play Is usually enough to start with and the director builds -the action ns he goes along. . This system Is now regarded as all wrong. But It is due to two rather Important factors. The first lies In the t supreme confidence of the di rector in himself and the second is due to the lack of really good photo plays. Men like Griffith and Ince and Terwllllger do. not usually work out scenes In this manner, but ther have done it. and on occasion will very likely do It again. There la no question but that, given a director of Intelligence and a company capable of acting, excellent results can be obtained In this man ner, although such directors and such actors and actresses would be the first to declare that this is not the best method of doing a picture play and) that a regular scenario Is much better. However, there are occasions when the building of a photoplay on a general Idea and progressing from scene to scene In a logical or rather Illogical way by means of what each scene suggests shall succeed It, succeeds In a most surprising way. Here Is an excellent example Geraldlno Farrar, after her suc cess as Carmen, conceived the Idea that the ntory of an opera singer's life would make 'an excel lent film. She suggested the Idea, to Hector Turnbull. former dramtlu orltlo of the New York Tribune, who Is at present engaged In writ ing motion picture plays. Turnoull thought the idea was a good one, and asked Miss Farrar to sketfh out what she meant. She started with It and got just so far-to a point where the singer gets a start. And then he couldn't sot-any further. Here Is what Ml&s Fnrrar wrote, and all he ever wrote: ''Be at- th'e stage door at eleven!" Before she fully realized what It meant, he had i-ung off. Her chance had come There was barely time to dress and get to the b g opera house. Timidly- she walked across the great expanse of disordered stage, picking her way among the scenery and stanchions, stacked against the walls. Tho huge curtain separating the stage from the auditorium was raised and row after row of empty eats seemed to stare at her, to kUer P?' what right-, she, an un known child, was in this world of make-beileve. of brilliant spectacle, golden tpportunltj, bright lights, deep shadows. "Down center" at a man at a rlsno In ehlrt sleeves. His long, disheveled hair and uncouth ap pearance bespoke the ai fistic tem perament But the layman would hardly have recognlrod the world's greatest leader. With extravagant gestures he was inacllv illustrating to one of tho singers the manner In which a passage could bo sung To better effect. To the .midst of the animated group the girl walked. "Ah, you are prompt!" It was Mul leins voice. "We will try your voice Immediately. He led her to th piano. The man In shirt sleeven surrendered fs place to her. "Sing'" the Impresario commanded. "Scales!" He did not waste words. Then, her heart In her mouth ai her fingers played tin nd the keys, she abandoned tho scale she had been told to sing and st'-rted the aria of a popular opera. Encouraged by V Iter's p!ead smile she finished it with abrilllant display of vocal ability. The inaitnflon rf ire ilstrnors had turned to rapt attention. nd thf g-l, a. stranger among them, was enthusi astically applauded. "You'll do." said Muller. Itene !.i pre had broken the Ice. Sh was m the high way to success. How diffi cult of attainment that sucroit would prove, she was to learn. To all intents and purposes that is the scenario from which Mis Farrar's new play "Temptation," was made. And that is all the sce nario the director or the company had when tho work was actually started, filming' the play. Tho re mainder of It was built up from scene to scene from things that were suggested in preceding t-.. j .i.i.,.,. .irii, i,.i t-cenes and from things which have actually happened In tho lives of opera singers. The result Is u logi cal film play. That Is Just how hundreds of mo tion picture plays are made. G, M. TODAY'S BEST FILMS ' By GARDNER" MACK.

From the standpoint of the friends of Clark, who declare that the Speaker is ngreeat 'e to the plan, the definite agree ment will depend on whether President WMcun lironkn til ntlhnnn an1 fnnkrN I known his decision on the question of j running for re-election.

Bryan Reported Willing. That Bryan and Clark ever could come together again after the denunciation of Clark's backers by Bryan In Tils suc cessful fight In 1912 against Clark's noml-natlon.-was thought Improbable until re cently.

That Bryan will oppose the Presi dent whether or not the latter decides to run again has been accepted as a fact ever since the Secretary broke with the Chief Executive over .the German submarine controversy and resigned from the Cabinet. Mr. Bryan has centered his attack on the Presi dent's preparedness policy, but while Speaker Clark has come out In a statement favoring "reasonable pre paredness," mutual friends of Bryan and Clark declare that It is not im possible for the two men to get to gether.

Sanitary science has of late made rapid strides with results fVat re of untold blessing to humanity. The latest application of Its untiring research is the recommendation that it Is ns neces sary to attend to Internal sanitation of tho drainage' system of tho human body as It Is to the drains of the house. Thoso of us who are accustomed to feel dull and heavy when we ai lee. splitting headache, stuffy from a cold,, foul tongue, nasty breath, acid stom ach, can, Instead, feel as fresh as a daisy by opening the sluices of tho sys tem each morning and flushing out the whole of the Internal poisonous, stag nant matter. Kveryone, whether ailing, sick or well, should, each morning before breakfast, drink a glass of real hot water with a teaspoonful of limestone phosphate in it to wash from the stomach, liver, and bowels tho previous day's Indigestible waste, sour bile, and poisonous toxins; thus cleansing, sweetening, and purify ing the entlro alimentary canal before putting more food into the stomach. The action of hot water and limestone phos phate on an empty stomach Is wonder fully Invigorating. It cleans out all the sour fermentations, gases, waste, and acidity and gives one a splendid nppe. tlte for breakfast. While ypu arc on Joying your breakfast the phosphaled hot water Is quietly extracting a large volume of water from the blond and getting ready for a thorough flushing of all the Inside organs. Tho millions of people who are both ered with constipation, bilious spells. stomach trouble, rheumatic stiffness others who have sallow skins, blood disorders and sickly complexions are urged to get a quarter pound of lime stone phosphate from the drug store.
