Muddy, sun scorched and mountain chipped but none the less for wear the first cross country 1917 Chalmers Sedan arrived In San Francisco this week. George G. Greenburg, wealthy merchant of Chicago, was the driver, accompanied by his wife, two children and enough trunks and grips.for a CLOSED CAR FOR TOURS. "If my trips and mileage experience may be Introduced as evidence, the closed car, especially a Sedan, Is the pre-eminent car for tours, long or snort. My wife is an experienced driver and motorist but always disliked the exposure and discomfort, of open tour ing. For a good many years she has driven her electric around Chicago but this trip to the coast has thoroughly convinced her to a Sedan and a Chal mers." traveling «lock company.. Excepting three miles the entire trip to the coast was In high gear. reen urg is a veteran motorist with an accumulation of more than 400,000 miles behind him embracing some 28 states and Including three trips across the continent.

This fact and the added, feature that their lire trouble con-1 sisted of two punctures, is according to Greenburg, a distinct tribute to the lightnlss of a Chalmers on tires. VARYING CONDITIONS. Varying weather and roads were en countered ranging from mountain storms in the Rockies to a temperature of 188 degrees in the shade at Sand Springs, Nevada. Right outside of this place they plowed through 12 miles of sticky mud and next hit a mountain grade coated with sllpory fog. | "That 1 will never again purchase a high priced car is one of the positive conclusions resulting from our trip," declared Greenburg. I have owned ex pensive American cars and imported machines as high ns six thousand dol lars but the performance of my Chal mers Sedan has put me in the medium mice class forever.

The scene was enacted exactly as per schedule, however, and Cam peau's hat lay on the ground before he realized it was all over. "The days of trick photography are decidedly olver, with the exception of of the slap-$tiek comedy," said Douglas in speaking of the incident, "and those scenes prove that you can easily rec ognize a faked bit by the unnatural I tempo of the action.

TEN PART FEATURE PHOTOPLAY WILL BE SHOWN AT MAJESTIC "The Tllonor System," giant 10-part photo feature directed by Rual Walsh opens at t|he Majestic today for an ex tended engagement. The eastern presses have been most liberal In their praise of what they term "the great | est fllm j, roduc , t Ion In the history of the industry," and packed houses have greeted every performance given it in all the larger houses of New' York, Philadelphia, Boston and Chicago. In every casa the enthusiasm has exceed ed the expectations of even the most optimist!^. The plot of "The Honor System" contains a story appealing and forceful fhroughout, a story gigantic and awe-inspiring ns it is revealed through dne of tho most terrific courses of action ever seen in a film drama. No pr odiictlon has occupied bo much! time, and energy, no attraction of its kind has cost as much and today no production has paralleled or equaled It. This extraordinary visualization of universal! appeal and undying attrac tion holds within its limits a grip, a pull that reaches to the remotest heart string arid pulls it to its tightest, and there rinlgs a melody of love and ro mance, f\. bit of jealousy and revenge mingled with tones of drama and tragedy.

It was then his misfortune to fall Into the handa of a cruel master, from whom he runs away, and the opening scene finds him at the great Umberlost camp pleading for work. His pitiful plea wins the heart of the camp hose, who become« his benefactor, and he la put to work as guard of the Dtmberloat. There he prove« his mettle and meets the girl whom he calls "The Angel." Their meeting Introduces a most de ' j | : j , I : j lightful love story and marks the be ginning of the walTs rlHe from a lowly position to a station of affluence and power.
