And those | woh were at the Hippodrome yester-j day at either of the two performances j would probably render a similar ver-i diet if called upon to express an opin- [ ion or Mr. King, who plays the titular part.

The Christmas dinner out of a lunch basket in the station (which is a banquet to the infatuated salesman? the i" , poker game in the typical "dmm-j merr's" hotel, enlivened by "Scotch'*! disguised at lea. are examples of the, homely, genuine acting which estah-j llsbes this piece as representative of' the best type of sincere, romantic j comedy.

From the roster wo have seen It appears to be practically I a new company, and none of those; who were familiar to Ilipp patrons are in the oast. Manager Heilman gave a litle party' to his Company of players last Sat arts rluy night on the Hippodrome stage Immediately after the concluding per formance of "The House of Mystery' The entire company and stage crew and house attaches were present. Miss b LeRoy nlaved Santa C'laus and from a table full of deftly lied packages hand- I ed out presents to "one and all." It 1 was a regular exchange desk. Some- i A. one would deposit something intended I for some one of the party and invariably would find a package for them- 1 Belves awaiting. It was a fine affair, i The many expressions of good will i and tlio little tokens of esteem cannot help lint yet more (Irmly cement Hie ! bonds of freindship tlint exist among th' se very fine player folks. Patti McKlntey rendered several!! pleasing vocal selections and accompanied licrself on the piano at the Hipp party Saturday night. We now i can understand why she is named ; ( ' "Patti." The cigarette case used I ntlie card ; game scene of "The Traveling Sales- i mail" belongs to Dave lleilmaii.

D. i C., and turned over tlie position lie i held with that company to Cliarlie Koons, who was formerly a member Of the Hipp crew. "Davie" says the: job is a good one, but his home ties! were too strong to allow him to stay on the road. The "Step Lively" Com-j W, pany Is playing Philadelphia this, I week.

Tito girl wins out' against her enemies, her honesty is j made plan, and the happiness which comes to*her in the last, scene of the stirring photodrama Is only her just meed. The play is presented with a dose attention to detail, and sotr.e wonderful photographic results were oh- 1 tained by the use of specially constructed lighting apparatus, the combination of beautiful work and stirring gripping situations, making an ex- j. tremely powerful plcturfzation of a ' ttrong. dramatic story.

There really isn't much for me to write about It. I had no heart-breaking interviews with managers nor long waits for something to luni up. I attended the Hyde Park high school In Chicago, not a great distance front tint Essanay Studio. It was as familiar to me as the coruer drug store or the butcher shop. One day I went with a party of friends to visit the Essanay plant and right then my opportunity canto. One of the directors asked mo it I would lake part in a short scene. He said he thought 1 possessed a "camera face." "if you register well." he snid. "I may be able to use you in this picture 1 am filming." A "Camera face" is one that photographs well from all angles, it is hard lo find. Camera men and directors MONQNGAH | Good Programs.

The work fascinated me from the start. One day Francis X. Bushman, who had been watching my endeavor, asked that I be assigned to his company to alternate with Miss ltut.il Stonehouse in playing leads. Thus, with little effort and no struggle, I became a leading lady, all because 1 had a "camera face." I continued to play leads with Mr. Bushman until he went to the Metro company. In a short time an offer < ante to me from Metro, due to the fact that the public had learned to like our work on the screen and demanded more of it.
