If this graphic presentment serves no other purpose,
its message for universal peace marks it of great impor
tance. Morally and educationally it establishes the fu
tility of armed conflict. A member of the senate of the
United States expressed the foregoing sentiment.
"Anyone contemplating war should see this picture,"
added the senator. "I sincerely believe it will do more to
deter people from engaging in war than anything written
or spoken on the subject in years."
Great care has been taken not to glorify battle. Even
the music stops in its motif of glorification to sound the
note of terror and desolation which is the real truth of
A series of wild rides that commandeered a county for
a day and cost $10,000.
Night photography of battle scenes, invented and per
fected at a cost of $12,000.
Wonderful artillery duels in which real shells, costing
$80 apiece, were used. Miles of trenches, thousands of
fighters, "war as it actually is."
Musical score of 25 pieces, synchronized to the several
thousand distinct and individual scenes.
Armies seldom settle disputed questions of state. But,
where they accomplish this much, in the wake of conflict
arises newer and more terrible questions. But for the
hatreds engendered in the Civil war, the suffering of the
Reconstruction period would never have been known.

juries which teil ihe story, of a
le romance, which explains the at
titude of the North and the defense of
the stubborn South over the slave is
sue, and which carry one through
scenes of thé long, cruel war. Its mes
sage to the world being "Liberty and
Union, one and inseparable."
Colonel Stonemnn of the North is in
love with the sister of Colonel Cam
eron of the South. And Colonel Cam
eron 1* infatuateif with the sister of
Colonel Stonem . These romances are
depicted before the war and the view*
show how the drawing of lines and the
commencement of war worked es

the young lovers and members of their
Brave young men embrace their
mothers, sisters and sweethearts and
depart for army gervice, their emo
lining depicted in their resolute
. The pictures also show patriot
ic women at home sewing and knitting
for the soldiers.
The mfcgic films reveal the interiors
of northern and southern homes. One
secs vast armies mustered to march
away to war.
In a twinkling the scene changes and
the sun shines brightly on a snowy
cotton field in the south, with scores
of negroes of all ages plucking the
white blossoms. Festive little pica
ninnies caper about and at nightfall In
cabin quarters singing and dancing are
indulged In by the slaves. Bondage is
visualised with Its sorrows and its
joys. As the war progresses great
battles are fought and the thrilling ac
tion from rifle fire to cavalry clashes
and artillery duels Is depicted in pic
torial form as true to life as it is pos
sible for human agency to stimulate.
Scenes are unfolded in which fully
18,000» soldiers and 3000 cavalry, the
largest theatrical army ever assembled,
are active in this performance of the
good and bad deeds of warfare, une
sees a bayonet charge with a quiver of
excitement and closes his eyes at sight
of the dying and dead. Ambulance
drivers arrive to carry away the fallen
and hospitals throw doors open to re
ceive the injured. Gentle nurses flit
from cot to cot to minister to the wants
of the patients.
Histpric scenes are depicted with
realistic effect, ranging from battle en
gagements such as the battle of Get
tysburg. the siege of Petersburg, Sher
man's march to the sea and the fall of
Atlanta, to events in Washington.
In the picture General Robert I,ee
strides forth to clasp the hand of Gen
eral U. S. Grant, his conqueror at Ap
pomattox. Another historical event of
lasting impressiveness is the assassin
ation of President Abraham Lincoln,
presented as accurately as the details
are remembered by eye witnesses and
as exact reproduction of the play
house in which the martyred president
lost his life. Peace is exemplified in a
brilliantly impressive pageant and the
pictorial story continues with the for
tune of the re-united lovers and the
troubles experienced in the south over
the abuse of political power vested in
the emancipated negroes. Mob vio
lence and outlawry are depleted, fol
lowed by spectacular views of the Klu
n.lux-Kiansmen who organized secretly
to control the negroes through their
The Klansmen were fearless night
riders and thejf wore white shrouds.
Acts of vengeance were perpetrated
under the cover of darkness and the
pictures show clearly why such ex

This Is a play that is said to be full of
heart interest with a splendid vein of
comedy running through the entire

the ladies, "Wife in Name Only," with

something the ladies cannot help but
admire. Some handsome gowns are
worn by the lady members of the cast.
The engagement of this company wilt
close Friday night with a pretentious
production of "The Struggle for Life,"
a melo-dramatic form of amusement.
Each production this week will be

pleaded with Director Griffith to take
Bessie away from Ince and Hart and
let her play with him. But the cele

But Fairbanks was not dismayed. He
sat down and wrote a scenario of such
nature that Bessie Love was the only
one who could possibly fit the leading
female character, and In which no
body but he himself could do the lead.
His scheme worked perfectly, and his
play, "The Good Bad Man," will short
