THIRD BIG PRODUCTION
FROM PICKFORD STUDIO
AT EMPRESS TONIGHT
When site reaches her fourteenth
birthday. Mavis Hawn, a Kentucky
mountain girl, decides that books,
not bullets, are essential to her life’s
success. So thinking, she mounts the
family donkey and sets out for the
Lowland school, to find the strang
est thing she has even seen—a rail
road train, which she thinks is a
threshing machine.
But this is only one of many inci
dents, humorous, pathetic, appeal
ing. which go to make up “The Heart
o’ the Hills,” Mary Piekford’s third
big production from her own studios,
of which her mother is business man
ager.
The same beloved Mary, with her
smiles and tears, her loves and bates,
her whims and winning ways, in an
entirely new characterization. You
will fall in love all over again with
her, in this story of her loyalty to
"Pap” in the feudist battles of the
Kentucky mountains. She can shoot
—and s^he shoots to kill. She can
tide—and she heads the famous Ken
tucky night riders in their wild chase
over the mountains.
Mary Pickford, the greatest ac
tress, in the strongest sory of a
noted author, John Fox, Jr., is the
big attraction at the Empress to
night. A picture in which Mary’s
own quaint humor and comedy break
the dramatic tenseness of the tale—
a picture with a big. smashing, sur
prising climax that will leave you
well satisfied.
A News reel, and an extra good
Harold Lloyd comedy complete this
attractive program.

THE BLUM O’NEILL CO.
MAKE EFFORT
TO SAVE SHIP
STORM STRUCK
EUREKA, Cal., March 3 (by Asso
ciated Press).—Attempts are to be
renewed next month to save from
a sandy grave the wreck of the
steamer Corona, a former Pacific
Steamship Co. vessel, which a storm
hurled over a jetty here fourteen
years ago. The wreck lies about
1,500 feet from the water, the shore
line having receded, since the boat
came ashore.
Last year about half the hull was
uncovered when a sudden winter
storm swept the sand back, burying
the vessel, and undid in a week an
expensive task of several months.
Frank Johnson, contractor, who
bought the vessel two years ago for
$5,000, financed last season’s unsuc
cessful work. This year he intends
to bulkhead the wreck in from the
encroaching sands, and pump the
sand from outside and inside the hull
at the same time.
There is a shipment of steel rails
and other goods of unperishable na
ture in the hold, according to John
son. He said recently that he has a
standing offer for the engine and
boilers which will net him a profit.
Hope has also been expressed that
possible the hull, made of Norway
iron, may be dragged back to the
shoreline and launched.
