Statistics about the picture as published in The
Literary Digest:
I “The screen version of Vincente Blasco Ibanez’s epochal
novel took more than six months to complete.
“Upward of 12,000 persons wire engaged in the under
“More than 125,000 tons of masonry, steel, lumber, fur
niture, and shrubbery—in excess of the materials used in
the Woolworth building1—were used in constructing the
massive settings for the colossal spectacle.
“An entire French village, capable of housing 6000 souls,
was put up and then destroyed before the camera Tens.
“Every house in this village was finished throughout,
instead of being a ‘front.’
I “A costume factory was erected on the Metro studio
grounds for ‘dressing’ the production.
“An armory and two machine shops were incidentals of
the other building operations.
“More than 500,000 feet of raw film were exposed in the
taking of the picture, which when shown on the screen will
not exceed 12,000 feet.
“Fourteen cameramen were employed to ‘shoot’ the big
scenes from every angle, and Bex Ingram, the director, at
times had fourteen directors assisting him.
“Field kitchens and a complete commissary organization
were regured to feed the army of 12,500 persons engaged
on the production.
“A collection of art treasures from galleries and private
sources, valued beyond price, was used in dressing the hand
osme interior settings. The insurance alone on these art
works was $375,000.
“The cast interpreting the rolas contains two dozen prin- Kj
cipal players, who in other productions would be rated as I.
stars.” . Ill |||
Kiwanis Committee Visits Ty
lertown—To Report at
i Meeting Wednesday.
! X
I The committee appointed by the
, Kiwani^ Club recently for the pur
pose of inspecting the syrup re-boil
ing plant at Tylertown and reporting
on the advisability of a plant of this
kind for Lincoln county went down
Thursday and were much impressed
with the feasibility of the idea.
1 The Tylertown plant has stand
ardized and shipped twenty-four car
loads of syrup this season, all of it
going to New York. It is stated that
much more could have been market
ed had it been available.
This plant takes the syrup from
farmers and reboils it to a standard
density, making a product that can
be relied upon. The present method
of shipping syrup as originally put
up by the small ‘‘molasses mills” is
very unsatisfactory and few dealers
care to assume the risks in handling
The Tylertown plant is run co-op
eratively, the shipments being hand
led as economically as possible and
the proceeds pro rated among the
It is claimed that the territory
from Franklin, La., north to Wesson,
and from Liberty east to Pearl River
produces the best syrup in the world,
and those who have tasted the "long
sweetenin’ " of old Lincoln, when
made by some of the masters of the
craft in this county readily agree
with this assertion.
The Kiwanis Club expects to have
a meeting Wednesday and will in
vite representative farmers and bus
iness men to discuss the proposition
of a Lincoln county plant.
Mr. C. B. Perkins, president of the
ivi» aiuo v/iuu, wao a uiciuuci vi
committee tha< went to Tylertown
and is confident of putting across a
plant that can refine all the syrup in
Lincoln county and market it at a
good price.

Water Pours Through Crevasse
in Surges High as Tree
Tops—Many Saved.
Natchez, Miss., April 27.—Phil
Connell, president of the Louisiana
National Bank of Baton Rouge with
H. B. Connor, representative of Con
cordia parish in the Louisiana Legis
lature, arrived in Natchez tonight
en route to Baton Rouge where they
will report on flood conditions in the
area affected.
The two went to the scene of the
crevasse early today and then to
Junks where they assisted in the res
cue of the people marooned at that
In describing the rescue work Mr.
Connor stated that on account of the
cataract of water pouring through
the crevasse gasoline launches had
to be put over the levee.
At Junks 20 white people and 6
negroes were found on the second
floor of thp hotel building and a
number were also in the building of
a sawmill plant. In all 80 were res
cued. >
Describing the crevasse, Mr. Con
nor stated that great billows were
leaping through the gap that rose as1
high as the pecan trees standing in
front of the plantation residence.
These trees were torn down by the
torrent and swept end over end. As
the spectators looked On the resi
dence was swept away by the raging
One of the thrilling incidents of
the levee break was the rescue by
B. C. Wilson, manager1 of Winemere
plantation, just beyond the crevasse
of his wife and children. When the
break occurred Mr. Wilson was shut
off from his home. Urging his horse
through the water which at this
time was deep enough in places for
the animal to swim, he breasted the
current. The horse was thrown
down twice and turned completely
over once but Mr. Wilson succeeded
in winning through and carrying
his wife and children in safety to
the levee.
In behalf of the people of Concor
dia parish Mr. Connor expressed
deep appreciation of the efforts of
the people from Natchez who rescued
the people of Junks and in extending
aid to the sufferers.
Three hundred people, 250 npgroes
and 50 whites, from the flooded dis
trict, are being cared for here to
night and 500 more are expected
tomorrow. There is a pressing need
for cots and blankets, although there
are plenty of tents so far.
