THEATRES Two Fraltin- at (ti-sriil Night photograptn. of a degree ot excellence that rarely has been ap proached in the history of the mo tion picture industry. Is said to stand out prominently in various parts of i “The Patriot," the thrilling drama) by Monte M, Katt«-rjohn. which will | be seen at the Crescent theatre to-i day with William 8. Hart in the title I role. An Impressive night scene is that which depicts the American troops j seated about their bonfires, just be-; fore "Taps." In this, the flickering; flames bring out the features of the men in bold contrast against the Inky background intermittently il luminating the tents, a* well. Still another commendable piece of night photography Is provided by the scene which shows the tents of the soldiers illuminated within. A ) bugler suddenly appears In relief . against the canvas of one. and, j blowing "Taps." sounds the signal! for th.- extinguishing of the light* | ri lone by one the lights disappear un-| j | til only darkness remains, penetrut- tM .<! faintly, however, by the glowing [,,, embers of the campfires.
