MOVIES ARE BE COMING UNIVERSAL In Distant Countries They are Attracting Attention and Becoming Popular The appetite of Young America for moving picture theatres seems to be insatiable. Every youngster knows about and talks of the "movies " Not only Is this liking confined to the youngsters but to older people well. The variety of the pictures Is as pleasing to them aa to the children. One of Chanute's grocerymen says that he can vouch for the popularity of the moving pic'ure show in this town. Not long ago a woman whom he knew to be in rather poor circum stances came and bought a dozen eggs from him on time. Suspecting that she was needing the money he paid especial attention and discovered that she wt nt to another store and sold the eggs for cash and with the proceeds went to the picture show. She pro bably was hungry for amusement and at that place she could get -the most for her money. Be that as it may, memoranda col lected for cities and towns in other parts of the world show how univer sally the moving picture theatre pro grams excite interest and attention In Sheffield, seventeen cinemato graph theatres are reported whose gross receipts will- average over seven thousand dollars per week Their j expense for films alone amounts to fifteen hundred dollars. " At this place ton percent of the films used are- French, Italian fifteen per-; cent nd more than sixty percent are American. The reason assigned for their popularity i. ihat the subjects are better adapted to tne general taste, though the photography la no better Both Italian films, and : British are improving as they evi dently do not care to have their mar ket taken completely away from them by the American production. In Japan they also have the "movie" habit, e'ghty-three moving picture halls in all. The greater part of their films are American. The most popu lar are those of pathos, filial devo tion, a warrior, a martyr to his country, magic comedy and scenery, but they draw the line at pictures of love affairs, or where policemen or gove nment ollicials are mocked by the crowd, or those of a revolutionary character. Even China is not immune, as they have a few of the halls. Turkey has several and their number is rapidly increasing. All of the shows are in the large cities. In Australia the moving picture business is active and growing. If these countries are in terested in the sort of amusement liked by rich and poor, young and old, alike, what would be expected of American people other than that they would be fond of it too? Case Continued The case of the State vs. William Furkey which was to have come up In Justice of Peace F. M.
