This story has now been absorb ingly developed, through the eloquent magic of the screen by oreater Vita graph. To it is devoted a wealth of picturesque costumes, faithful and beautiful scenery, a star oast led by the incomparable Anita Stewart her self, and the masterrul direction of a. Han kin Drew. The result is an eight-reel motion picture classic. ' The plot is fundamentally fasci nating. Phlllppa, a girl of aristo cratic mold, is discovered as the serving maid in an obscure cafe somewhere in France. She sparkles, a Jewel against a background of in finite world tragedy at once baf fling and piquant. A burly animal of a task-master, the host of the tavern, Wlldeaxe. holds the key lo her past and to her fin are. Into tills seething environ ment, fiite draws conflicting perron nllttea from the capitals of the earth after which . the plots spins dizzily iihout the frail central figure of the girl herself. Back In her childhood there was a fatal catastrophe In a Halkan king dom. In France she is living a really blaxarre, but on the surface prosaic, life. Come now, Warnw, the Amer ican artist; also Hnlkett and Oray, the Kngil'hmen; Hoffman, the Teu ton, Astlcot, the Paris safe-blower and Apache, and spies nnd couriers. . m-ndurmes and armies.

Hnl kett and Gray, secret agents of Kng land, are dispatched to recover the plana. Warner, an Innocent dream er In the meadows of Ausone. Is elec trically dragged Into the plotting. After saveifcl encounters the plan are recovered and part of them en trusted to Warner. At once Philip pe becomes the first antagonist In his new made peril. She Is a spy! love, solves the danger of th young hero, but doubles It for Phl llppa. She spies now for him at the risk of her own life. The intrigue is turned from now on against her. She nuively transfers herself to tho protection of Warner. Wlldresso, mater spy, la foiled by her when she burns sofe of the papers be has stolen from the artist. Flaming with anger, U'lldrcsae sends his crew of assassins after the artist. A siege of the Peach Tree Inn. Phllippa's new refuge, abound! in suspense and action, and it is about to fall when gendarmes dash up to the rescue. They also an nounce a new crisis the declaration of war with Germany. Wlldresse is spurred to more des perate efforts. Attacking the Eiur IUhmen with his cohorts, he secures part of the plans that they have and shoots amy. The latter s name is used as a blind for a spy to approach Halkett at the Peach Tree Inn. Hal kctt's life Is saved by Phlllppa, who fells the spy with a lamp. After an exciting fight she flees to a convent with the papers. Is overtaken, and kidnapped and again is In the hands of Wlldresse. The Inn owned by Wlldresse. is now her prison. Warner gallantly Invades It to rescue her. While he Is engaged In this effort, the opening guns of the great war are fired in the village and the battle surges back and forth through the streets. Phlllppa and the American are prowling in the wine-cellar, seeking primarily the contents of a rusty old safe that holds data con cerning Phllippa's royal identity. These are secured partly with the aid of Astlcot. who has left the forc es ef Wlldresse to become Warner's denoted bodyguard. Here all are dis covered by Wildleee. who has sold out to the German lnvaers. A ter rific fisrht ensues in the house. In which Warner and his companions succeed In holding off the attackers until the tide of battle outside brings the Fiench Into possession of the place Wlldreee Is captured as a traitor.

Before he meets his fate, he divulges to her that she Ik a prlntV, that he sided In the i tint ion of her parents. He had pur posely spared her and escaped with her to France, where he reared her with an eye to making future profit out of her existence. Phitlppa. once cabaret caililer. now hHn her true name and rank. War ner, her companion. Is 'but a plebian. The blood royal Tows In her veins, and he hangs his head In despair. For he has loved her madly, hopefully. And now But this Is the sublime romance of a sublime woman a tad it ends, as It should, sublimely. Adv. KMXTif WMxm vorxo W1UOW AMD KlUi 8KI.P CAsfIEX. N.
