A New Service Feature
Beginning with this issue, we
are printing each week an in
stallment of the "Trey O'Hearts"
Louis Joseph Vance's new novel
which is appearing every Satur
day night at the People's Theatre.
The first appearance of the
pictures will be on Saturday
night, August 15.
This new novel of Vance's is
a thrillingly interesting, well writ
ten piece of modern fiction and
will be enjoyed greatly even by
those of our readers who are
unable to see the moving pictures.
To those who can see the moving
pictures of this great story, this
story's being printed in the
Herald will be an especially
Nothing in the world helps one
to enjoy and understand a play,
motion picture or otherwise, as
to be able to read the book
slightly in advance. ' 'The ' 'Trey
O'Hearts will be published just
one day in advance of each series
of the pictures.
We urge all of our readers to
avail themselves of the opportun
ity to read the story and,then see
the motion pictures, produced by
the Universal Film Company and
played by an all star cast of ac
tors and actresses. The scenic
effects in the motion pictures of
this story are said to be unsur
passed. The publication of our serial
story: "The Ambition of Mark
Truitt" recently started will
have to be discontinued until af
ter the "Trey O'Hearts" has
been finished. We believe we
are justified in taking this step,
Although the "Ambition of Mark
Truitt" i3 a big story and one
thoroughly interesting, we be
lieve most of our readers will
appreciate the advantages of be
ing able to read the "Trey 'O'
Hearts", a story equally as good,
especially when most of them
can see the motion pictures of
this story at the same time.
Anyway, we ask you to read
the first installment of the
"Trey 0' Hearts", before you
criticise us. It means an in
crease in cost and a great deal
of inconvenience to us to make
the change-we are doing it
solely in .the interests of bur
