It cost 'Woman Ince lots of time nnd money to secure, Mb Burke ns r ntnr for his photo 'graphic cntorprlMH; In nddlllon to u bit aalary he provided the Ilttlo star with . a bungalow ,on Calallna Islands, a prl s vate yacht for' her exclusive use, and ,i'ata automobile, a racing car at that, for ho well knew Miss Durke'a mania for " turnlnc gasolene Into speed. Alias Uurko cbntessed that she was 'Quit awed at tho magnificence of Ince Vllte, the mn'mmoth studio of Thomas lace Just outside of Los Angeles. "Why, this is a city In Itself." delightedly cried "the Xalr atar. as ahe Jumped from the ''car, "so wonderfully cosmopolitan, un one aide she saw n typical London street ;i branching Rway from It was an Indian village; further along forked orr irtreels'llke those of Scotland, Ireland, apd ' a .baiaar-llned lane bucIi as one would) see In the cxtrome East. She tvas conducted to a suite of rooms with private bath In ono corner of a spa clous studio building, which she quickly '.lftbeled "Home, Hwoet Home." '"The scenario Is ready, and I hope It will meet with your approbation," said Mr. Irtcc. "It has been prepared with the Idea of "permitting you to do before the camera the many fascinating little things you've done behind tho foot lights. We're sun worshipers here,' continued Mr. Ince, "wo only work be neath its rays, for Old Sol Is the best light to photograph by." "We started In next day," said Miss lturko, "and In an Incredibly short time the picture was completed, and 1 con fess 1 was sorry. The Idea of leaving that Ideal country, the charming hos ' Pltallty of the studio folks, the beautt ,ful little bungalow and the fast-gliding -iyacm jmea me wun conBicrnauon. x -am afraid I cried a creat deal the first day on the Overland limited bound-for Netr York, and as soon ns I finish a short season behind the footlights I am ' coins; back to the studio, for 1 must confess the films havo got me, and got me bad." Blossom and Herbert History Condensed.

"I fumbled about in my pockets." says Mr. MlUcr. In 1 elating tho Inci dent, "searching In vain for some change, as I didn't have time to take a bill from my pockctbook. I had about given it up and started away when my fingers touched a crumpled dollar bill that had been wedged Into a corner of a pocket. I quickly exchanged the dollar for the book and dashed for my taxi. If that dollar bill hadn't been In my pocket right at that moment 'Daddy Ljrtis Legs' would probably never have sfen the light of the stogo certainly I never would have nroduced it. "Well, I found 'Daddy Long Legs' a. series or letters or aDsoroing interest, and I read It from beginning to end ori that Journey. It brought tears and lauRhter and made such a deep im pression upon me that Immediately upon my return to New York I sent my son In search of the authoc Miss Web ster laughed at the idea of their being a comedy plot In 'Daddy Long Legs.' To her mind dramatizing these letters was entirely out or the question. I finally convinced the brilliant young woman that her book really had a tremendous dramatic value, and she consented. That lone dollar bill was the luckiest Invest I ever made." . AMUSEMENTS Presenting on Its Stage at All Times Only the Foremost Foreign and Native Artists and At tractions.
