They are of the Ming period, which

tions of the tendencies of the time.
Five Painted on Silk
Five of the pictures are painted
upon the finest woven silk, giving
them a luminous luster which is
not attainable on paper. They al
most seem to glow. The sip-faces
are dusted .with tiny glistening
^specks which, although not visable
at a distance, give a very pleasing
tone to the paintings. •
Chinese pictures are not hung,
but are kept in' rolls, which are
unwound to show the picture. Now.

The remaining painting is of a

Those who missed “ Interference ’ ’
will have their last chance to see
this fine motion picture at the Co
lonial theater tonigiit and those
who want to see it again will no
doubt enjoy the silent version fully
as much as the talkie. William
Powell is cast for the first time as
more or less of a respectable gen
tleman and makes just as good a
hero as a villain. Evelyn Brent,
that little wildcat who gained her
fame as an underworld character,
has a fascinating role that leaves
the heroine far in the background
and places herself in a rank with
the best of screen stars. Our friend,
Clive Brook, has elevated himself
from portraying pickpockets and
bums to playing the part of Eng
lish nobility and needless to say he
makes an unusually charming “Sir
John.” “Interference” is indeed
a picture deserving of the best of
comment and appreciation.
