For in the fifth episode the live Bengal . tiger which had figured prominently in the action all along as the Idol of the Hindu, Tlger Worshipers, had to be turned loose. There was no helping It, the Tiger must be allowed to leave his cage and enjoy a taste" of freedom on a location. Gilson Willets, the scena rio writer, was appealed to by Dl rector Hurst. . "Please, Mr. "Willets change that fifth episode." pleaded the direc tor. "We have had so many accU dents tr making this serial that I fear there Is a jinx on up and I am afraid something will happen If we turn that beast loose. Even Miss r.oland who generally takes every. thing as a matter of course - is looking forward to the fifth epi sode with dread." But "Willets wa adamant. In order to get the ac tion right that Tiger must be al lowed to gambol on the green and be filmed for once outside of his cage.."- So when the dreaded day came -4Jiey let his Tigerlets out and the cameramen bravely started turning their cranks, ever and anon glanc ing aroundto see that the trainers with their iron prods were standing near. The director decided that It would be an ad US scene, and stayed in the studio leaving the tiger to make up his own "business" for the scene. But the,. Tiger simply walked around a couple of times, yawned and craw" J into his cage and lay down. Born in captivity, freedom meant nothing in his young life. So the dreaded scenes were taken without accident and one of tha most thrilling "shots" of the en tire serial was secured. Horseless Carriage May Not Be Auto Riding in a carriage without horses!

Be sure.' ' ,- "Peric hurried to the treasure chamber and obeyed all instruc tions but the last. For when he jntered the, magic chamber, my llt tleone8, he found it full of beautiful maidens. "As the church clock in St. Mich -si's began to strike twelve Peria felt his limbs stiffening. He also saw the beautiful maidens grow stiff as himself. "When the last sound of midnight died away Peric found himself the central block of a group of stones. The worst of his punishment was that he retained his consciousness -in spite of his ter rlble transformation. He still heard the ocean beating against the cliffs, and he saw the fishermen going out In their boats. Once a year on the. night of Whit-Sunday, his spirit la set free to wander to and fro on the sands or to float on the crest of the waves. , "So take heed, my little' ones." Theda Bara .in "The Siren's Song."

But when an an gry butler tried to make them a target for pies and fruit, Mrs. Lee objected. " Jane and Katherine were taken out of the danger zone by their mother when the pie-throwing act was screened for the new Fox pic ture, "Tell It to the Marines."

A Juicy pie struck one of the men plump in the face. An other victim came out of the war with a high lump on his forehead the footprint of an apple. So, maybe, Mrs. Lee was right after all.
