Td like to trace this young streamlet back a i ways. It looks to me Tommie, '. playmate of my youth as if you and I were booked for some trout-fishing ere long." Tom's look was ludicrously grate fful both for Jim's plan to absent 1 htnraelt and for the announcement f that they two were contemporaries. The minute we were out of ear i, shot Jim caught my hand in his and j gave a great shout. ' "Did you ever see the beat of i that?" he demanded. "Bowled over I clean bowled over.

' "And why not?" came from Jim, as he abandoned his tracing of the ' stream and reclined on a big boulder where there was room to pull me j down dose to his side, j "Don't yu fcnow him by now? ; Tom's a flirt.' Married women are i generally his prey. He thinks them safer, I suppose. I've never before I seen him show a flicker of interest in ; a girl who might take him seriously and if Miss Warren did Til wager ( he'd run a mile." ; "I think you're wrong, sweetheart.

Luther Beaumont, a capitalist, ac companied by his pretty daughter, Alice, . a society " belle, visited the Arizona mountains by auto, in search of investments. Tire trouble halting the car temporary, Alice wandered forth to gather wild flowers. The halt occurred on the ranch of Larry Mc Bride. Larry, riding along the crest of a hill, sighted the girl just as she discovered him. lie waved his hand in 'the customary Western greeting, then continued on his way. Alice was interested. Larry, in the shelter of 4 tree, paused to inspect the girl through his field glasses. He thensaw, a few yards from her, a huge rattler colled and ready to spring. In a moment he was sliding down the precipitous side of the . hill on his sure-footed horse. But the rattler sprang, sink ing its fangs into Alice's buckskin, glove. She screamed; and at the same time a shot from Larry's rifle blew off the reptile's head. Scenting a romance, Alice had quickly removed her glove and made two deep imprints on her hand with her teeth. Larry lifted her to his horse, hurriedly told her father he would rush her to the town, two miles away, for medical attention. Approaching the doctor's office, the romantic Alice remarked archly, "I don't think that snake really bit through my glove." To which Larry replied, "I know it didn't; but you looked like you wanted some excite ment and here you are." Later Larry accepted Beaumont's card, remarking that as he expected to go to San Francisco in a few days he would take advantage of the in vitation to call upon them ' there. Alice was plainly pleased. Larry, on the tram bound for Frisco, noticed a flashy youth Jerry Casey, gang leader forcing his un-, welcome attentions on a nice-looking country girl. Lurry interposed and invited the fellow out to the platform. There a fierce fight ended with the gangster landing in a muddy pool be side the track. i How NOT To Write A Scenario! Drama should be the predominat ing ingredient ot a motion picture story, according to Lucien Hubbard, chief of the scenario department at Universal City. Write history if you wilL write propaganda, drive home lesson or consruct an autooiograpny. he advises but make these things incidental to the drama of the story. Audiences will accept the pill you wish to give them if it is sufficiently coated with interesting entertaining drama. "In addition to the predominating ingredient of drama there may be opportunity for. fine photographic ef (fects, for the women characters to wear elaborate costumes. even a moral may be gently conveyed but everything must be subordinate to the dramatic quality of the story. "Our department returns hun dreds otf manuscripts every week, and naturally we cannot write each con tributor a personal letter and go into details why his" or her story is not available for production. But in 9'9 cases out of 100 the reason is the lack of dramatic material in the scenario. We receive dozens of stories on the No Children Wanted theme, in which the writers air a "personal grievance rather than create an interesting story with dramatic situations. Scores of stories have been submitted on the subject of Prohibition and Blue Laws, and al most invariably the author has writ ten propaganda rather than drama. "Others have taken the ctory of their lives, or the lives of their friends, and called our attention to the fact the stories were true to life. fPhis is not always an advantage While there is basis for drama all albout us, the existence of most of us is commonplace. I2ven the most ad venturous life must be high lighted and concentrated, provided with necessary conflicts and contrasts, to make it really dramatic and interest ing. "The most elaborate settings and costliest costumes will not make a photodrama. The most careful de tail and most faithful atmosphere will not make an interesting picture. All these features merely enhance the value of a good story and help make it 100 perfect. It has al ways been my contention that per fect drama can be enacted against a simple background. No matter how excellent a scenario may me, the best producers will not spare any ex pense in settings, costumes and de tail. A gem may sparkle under any The Stratfield CAFETERIA OPEN DAILY 6 A. M.

Larry battled bravely against heavy odds, and made his escape by leaping from the ferry bridge to the roof of a passing trolley car minus his suit case and dropping off a block further on. Newly outfitted by a tailor, Larry called upon the Beaumonts and de termined he would call again. In fact, he was in love, and Alice wasn't far from it. At the Beaumont home, Larry met Rodney Curtis, an unscrupulous chap and a suitor for Alice's hand. He disliked Curtis, and the tatter's jeal ousy was quickly manifest. While the three were riding in Golden Gate Park, Larry rescued from death, by daring and fine horsemanship, a little girl on a runaway pony. Alice's eyes told her admiration. Casey, the gang leader, aiming to square accounts, had Larry lured in the name of the country girl whom he had befriended on the train. She was now a cigarette girL The gang was on hand, Larry came, and there was a battle royal. Later Larry again found the cigar ette girl, and he and Pee Wee, his cow-boy butler, gave her shelter in the apartment. Learning of this, Alice, in pique, accepted Curtis. The latter, to prevent any further rivalry, hired Casey's gang ofthugs to attend to Larry, whom he had invited to a road house. In the -effort to kill him, one of the gunmen was killed and Larry was arrested on a murder charge. Casey's attempt to blackmail Beau mont as prospective father-in-law of Curtis led to the discovery that Curtis had fired the shot that killed the gun man. This cleared Larry and dis posed of Curtis. Not long after this, Mr- and Mrs. Larry McBride returned to the Mc Bride ranch as a part of their wed ding trip. XUCIEN HUBBARO condition but the wearer prefers it in a. suitable setting." P. G.

Ladies and Men's Old Panamas 111 cached Natural Process. No Acids Used. By A Hatter In The Theatres POLTS William S. Hart in "O'Malley of the Mounted" eeema to be the same old, popular bad man that he always was only in his latest piece, be is -a good man who seems bad. Everybody says "O'Malley of the Mounted" is as strong as & surging mountain stream and . just as picturesque. People like this picture and are showing their appreciation by their attendance. Poli's vaudeville is also helping fm the big playhouse despite the warm weather. It is a good bill headed by "D." D. H." an inimitable performer who knows how to make people roar with laughter which is the best knowledge an actor can possess. Mme. Doree's "Celebrities" is the talk of Bridgeport's - musical world and indeed the hit 'this .fine offering is making is on everybody's tongue. The impersonations of famous opera tic stars are real. For example, Caruso looks like Caruso and John McCormick resembles the distinguish ed Irish tenor. The other acts on the bill supply a goodly measure of entertainment. Tomorrow, "Finders Keepers" will be the feature picture attraction, be ginning a three-day engagement. The star vaudeville act will be James Madison's,' "The Magic Fan." This is a genuine novelty from the pen ot a gifted vaudeville writer who for years has supplied some of the big gest andbest acts with the choicest material. Sunday, "Deception," the "masterful production with a cast of 7,000 peo ple, opens a four-day engagement at Poli's. A picture like "Deception" Is a rarity. It is vast, it is magnificent, it is epochal. Being the life and love story of King Benry the eighth of England it is historically correct and contains that truth which is always stranger than fiction and always more enthralling. , V PLAZA Thomas Meighan is known as the star without a failure. He has1 nev er made a picture -that was not up to the standard in every detail and his latest "White and Unmarried" which has just completed a run at the Cri terion, New York, will be shown for the first time in New England at the Plaza theatre starting tomorrow. The story taken from "Billy Kane, White and Unmarried" tells ot the inherit ance by a crook of a fortune, his de parture for Europe, his meeting on the boat with Dorothea, a girl with whose photo he has fallen in love and the romance which, develops. The feature act for Thursday ia "The Four Dancing Chicks" who may be called a quartette of charming misses, gracefully gifted and trained in the art of Terpsichore and the muse of Orpheus stunningly arrayed in six -dif erent sets of smart costumes. Jbut all this is said more, completely, more expressively and certainly more simply by George Ade's English which described the Dancing Chicks as Four Birds. Many other acts complete an' unusually big bill. The last opportunity is given to night to see Charles Ray's greatest seven -act drama ""Scrap Iron" and a sterling vaudeville show which has been packing the Plaza for the past few days.

Dear Miss Fairfax: I was engaged to a young lady one year my senior, and we were to have been married. Recently I saw tnis young lady in a dance hall with a young man of unsavory character. Do you think I did right by breaking our engagement? Her family asks me to save them the humiliation of explaining x and give her another chance. Should Z do this? BACHELOR. "Neither do I condemn thee Go thou and sin no more." So Christ spoke to a great pinner long cen turies ago. And. the woman was a stranger to whom He was offering divine mercy and forgiveness. Surely a man ought to nave something- of the Christ spirit for the woman he loves.

When I penned that Gem of Free Thought I natural ly imagined that we were to have Prohibition. But as the Idea seems to have fallen through, my volume was a total loss. It was a case of a Man writing 5 years ahead of the Times. And that's what the Actor has done for Humanity. Of course if the Democrats are ever unfortunate enough to get in again and decide "to enforce Prohibi tion, why, then 1 will revive my .hook and reap a Harvest.
