( “Most Useful”
Mary A. Nutting. only woman to
receive an honorary degree of Mas
ter of Art* at Yale thin year, was
presented as an authority on nurs
, mg, whose "devotion, courage, faith,
skill and magnificent perseverance
! have made her today one of the
most useful women in the world."
At The Ditnias
Motion picture thusiasts who ad
mired the Prince of Wales during
his stay in this country will be af
forded an opportunity to witness His
Highness' charming personality in
the Associated Producers' produc
tion, "Devotion," starring Hazel
Dawn, which will be shown at the
Ditmas theatre beginning today.
I.lonized by society's four hundred
and feted and dined until the very
last moment of his departure, the
Prince seen surrounded by a group
of notable American captains of in
dustry witnessing the Horse Show
at Madison Square Garden. New
York City. This scene, which was
filmed at great expense, is part and
parcel of the photodrama telling the
story of the ardent love of a young
I woman for her husband.
Other features of the pictureplay
are a number of picturesque scenes
showing for the first time in motion
pictures the wonderful swimming
pool of the Pennsylvania Hotel. New
York City, wher- for two days the
prominent members of the cast en
joyed its privileges while filming
scenes for "Devotion." Another
magnificent set reveals a society
function in which over 2,300 people
were used as "extras."
Prominent members of the cast
supporting Miss Dawn include E. K.
Lincoln, the well known character
actor, Violet Palmer, Renita Ran
dolph. Bradley Parker, Henry G.
Sell and Wedgewood Nowell. The
story was written and produced un
| der the direct supervision of A. J.
Two Rig Features at Crescent
“The Unfoldment" is announced as
the feature attraction at the Cres
cent theatre today and tomorrow. It
brings back to the screen. Florence
Lawrence, supported by a splendid
As Katherine Nevin, Miss Law
rence portrays a woman of refine
ment and culture who is suddenly
thrust into the atmosphere of a news
paper office where she comes in con
tact with life in the rawr. About
her she finds people whose good
points are entirely overshadowed by
their bad points. The newspaper's
owner, a supreme egotist, is a
grafter; the city editor is a brute
and a bully; his brother, crippled
of body and embittered of mind, is
an atheist. And these people cast
an unwholesome influence over
Katherine believed that if she
could show these people to them
selves in the light in which others
saw them, they would be inspired
to higher ideals. There came to her
an opportunity to do this through
the medium of the motion picture
screen. She put her friends in a
picture, and accomplished seeming
miracles through mental suggestion.
A1 Hart, hailed by movie fans the
world over as the “admirable vil
lain," is seen once more in a play
that gives his wickedness and “black
character" an opportunity to play
havoc with the lives and destinies of
the character in “So This is Ari
A1 Hart plays the bad man in a
story which was recently published
in the “All Story Argosy" maga
zine and which is said to have been
one of the greatest tales ever told
in this splendid weekly. Besides Mr.
Hart there are seen several star
players including Franklyn Farnum,
Shorty Hamilton and A1 Hart.
“So This is Arizona” is also sched
uled to begin its engagement today
at the Crescent.
At the Strand
A shipwreck pictured with all
the consummate mastery of D. W.
Griffith is but one of the big epi
sodes that make “The Fatal Mar
riage," starring Wallace Iteid and
L illian Gish, and now at the Strand
theatre, a drama of truly unusual
proportions. It is based upon Lord
Tennyson’s immortal poem. “Enoch
Arden." which through generations
of school children has been memo
rized by millions in all parts of the
The shipwreck in itself is a most
thrilling episode. It is done with
all the finish and mastery that
marks the bigger Griffith produc
tions. The great sailing vessel on
which Enoch embarks against the
wishes of his young wife, meets
thundering storms. It is swept fore
and aft. The waves lash the hu.l
with merciless blows. Enoch and
his mates are imprisoned in a cabin
but when the huge combers dash
against the walls the cabin is swept
, into the sea and the men with it.
They are carried by some kind fate
to an uncharted island where two
of the survivors succumb and
Enoch alone survives.
From this point on the story
moves with truly powerful dramatic
force. The return of the bearded
Enoch to his home, years after his
disappearance, to find his wife mar
ried to another, is a dramatic mo
ment that every one who sees the
picture will long remember.

Business, of all kinds, has undergone something of a revo

were the sole distributors and transporters of many of the
household articles of the day. Their legs set the limit for

Modern transportation, progressive sales methods—and

advertising many an article has been introduced simul
