A great many people think moving
pictures have slipped in and stolen
the people from the theatres. But on
the stage there is that charm of the
voice and the clever or romantic lines
we cannot have on the screen. Mov
ing pictures will not harm' the stage
any more than the spoken drama has
interfered with grand opera. It is
simply a new form of amusement and
within reach of the pocketbooks of
nearly every one. '
People do not realize- how hard we
work, to get-some of the effects seenJ
upon the screen.- Sometimes we re
hearse hours for just one scene, and
often it takes days before we are sure
it Is right for the camera to register.
Then" it is only a few feet of film and
takes but a few minutes to run It off.
The talking moving pictures created
quite a sensation when they were first
exhibited. But they were so imperfect
we did not take them very seriously.
I was so eager to see and hear them
wben they first came out ..that I was
greatly disappointed. The first exhibi
tion was that of a drama. It was
all quite clear, though unnatural. ..un
til the villian stabbed the hero. Then
something must have gone wrong with,
the machinery. The hero tottered.
clutched at his wound, dropped to the
floor and died. There was no sound
coming from the machine until quite
a few minutes after. Then came a
voice, the voice of the man who com
mitted the murder. He was hissing:
Now shall I stab you! Now shall I
The audience burst Into laughter,
aj:d the applause was because they
had been amused by the failure in
stead of the success of the machine.
So far the people haven't felt the
need of the voice with the 'pictures.
They axe most restful without it, and
everal friends who go to moving pic
tures several thnes a week say they
find their rmrngtoatlons are made ac
tive in watchtrtg the plot unfold. It
became a fascinating game, too, try
ing to foretell when you are watching
one scene juet what the following one
will be. And it Is good mental exer
cise, too. It heeps you young.
.., The. .newspapers, waged a great bat- j
tie rpen us when they exposed us sev
eral ears ago. Deaf mutes who could
read the Uvs claimed we were saying
unten'ler things to each other during j
love scenes; that the leading man
often swore, and from the mouths of
actresses came "toads instead of
pearls." It was a great shock to us.
although an amusing one.

"I Feel Ten Years Younger,

. natian Declares. '.
"I am so grateful for the relief Tan
lac has brought me that I am going to
cheerfully allow the use of my name.
In the hope that it will induce others
to try it."
The woman who voluntarily made
this statement yesterday is Mrs. A. B.
'. Harrison of 506 Clark street, Cincin
nati. The endorsements won by Taniac
from such admired women as is Mrs.
Harrison are the brightest chapters
in the story of Teniae's great success.
Prompted by the spirit of aiding oth
ers, as 6he knew she would, Mrs. Har
rison did just as she said cheerfully
allowed bor convincing statement to
te made, public.
"I had stomach trouble of ten years
standing," explained Mrs. Harrison. "I
tried many physicians and several
medicines but none brought any per
"My stomach, seemed to be on fire,
so Intense was the discomfort. Hot
liquid matter fairly burned my throat
day and night as it was discharged
from my stomach. Every morning my
tongue would be coated and-1 would
suffer from bad taste. My head ached
dreadfully and I was always bilious.
"In beginning the Taniac treatment
I first took the tablets -that -are en
closed in the package. I started Tan
iac the next morning, taking the first
dose right after breakfast From that
day my improvement has been steady.
My headaches have stopped, my, appe
tite has returned, but the biggest trib
ute I can pay is to say that I feel ten
year 8 younger. Every woman will ap
preciate that statement.
"I have not missed a dose since I
began the treatment and I intend to
keep it up. It has benefited me so
much that I would feel I had neglected
a real duty if I did not offer my state
ment." This is just one more of the remark
able Taniac stories. As the proof of
the pudding is in the. eating, so the
proof of Taniac is in the taking. No
medicine is believed to be as effect
ive in ailments of the stomach, liver
and kidneys and for catarrhal affect
ions of the mucous membranes as is

We asked them to prove It to us
and they did. They ran some film a
close up of a love scene. It was an
ardent affair, and in the eyes of the
loving couple there was a world of
tenderness. What the lips, were say
ing our Imagination supplied until they
were translated to-us by one who could
read the lips.. To our astonishment.
the heroine, said as she looked with
tenderness into the eyes of the hero,
"You clumsy galoot, you stepped on
my foot Just now."
Then there followed a volley of "I
didn't!" "You did!" "I didn't!" "You
did!" "Very well, I won't finish the
scene." - "You don't suppose any one
would - care, do you - ...
Their eyes -were saying "J love you,
I adore you;" but their lips: . "That's
right pull my face around so you can
get me away from the camera." "You
don't say. Where did you get the idea
you were the only one the audience
wanted to Bee?" "Thank goodnss, I
am not as conceited as you" and the
picture faded out as these two, with
their , faces wreathed with ecstatic
smiles, embraced in a passionate kiss!
They are very strict with us nowa
days. No such amusing mistakes occur-now.-

Charles, M., , Wheeling, W. ; Va.: Al
most any .reputable moving picture
company or agency will send you a
form for writing scenarios. They have
them for the purpose of helping and
encouraging writers. Those who have
scenarios returned sometimes think
the manuscript readers do not want
to hear from beginners. I am sure
they are mlstakeen. There Is always a
demand for new writers with fresh
ideas and a .virile, convincing plot.
