Amid shot and shell, the rattlingof
musketry, dashing horse and battling
soldiery, in a spectacular battle scene,
"The Heart of Maryland," in six parts,
opened a week's engagement at the Na
tional Theater yesterday, playing to
immense throngs, while on the top of
the theater at intervals a woman swung
from the bell in the church tower,
giving a thrill to hundreds in the street.
The plot is brilliant, dealing- with
the Civil War. Alan Kendric, during
the war, striving to visit Maryland
Calvert, is captured wearing a Confed
erate coat. For this he is condemned
to death as a spy by his own father.
Maryland climbs to the belfry and,
swinging to the bell, prevents the ring
ing from being heard by the guards as
Alan tries to break away.
The war then closes, and peace brings
with it the happy union of all.
The bigness of the production is
amazing. Thousands of actors are en
gaged in battles that are fought with
all of the realism of grim-visaged war.
The climax is reached when the church
is hit by a bursting shell and is burned.
In detail of production, scenic beauty
and photography, the production is a
An added touch of realism is worked
into the Play when scores of horsemen,
dashing across the National stage, pre
sent a spectacular scene. Walter P.
Armstrong personally staged the war
spectacle which aroused the unbounded
enthusiasm of the audiences. Special
scenery and lighting effects make the
picture one of unusual beauty.

Mary Pickford is attracting Just as
many adoring people as ever in her
newest and quaintest picture, "Fan

ater this week.
"Little Mary" has been seen in all
sorts of roles, from a pathetic cast
away upon a desert island to a queen,
but never to better advantage than in
this five-reel production of the saucy,
independent little cricket of the heath.
Her quaint -.mannerisms, her glorious,
long curls, her wide, mischievous eyes
are enhanced in this production.
She is a ragged Imp of the wood
lands. She longs to dance around the
Maypoles and scamper oit the green,
but the young women make fun of
her rags and the men hoot at her.
Tossing her bright hair, she goes to
play by herself, but not without long
ing in her heart.

Specifications for ten different kinds
of pavement for the county roads have
been approved informally by the Board
of County Commissioners, and bids will
be received on at least this many varle
ties of hard-surfacing.
Kigth of these specifications were
those submitted by Koadmaster 1 eon.
They called for brick, wood block, stone
block, cement, warrenite. asphaltic con
crete, hassam and hydraulic concrete.
The Commissioners looked these over
at an "executive session" Saturday and
decided they were all right.
Then the Commissioners asked Mr.
Yeon for two more paving specifica
tions. One is for the "Topeka mixture"
ot asphaltic concrete, and the other is
.concrete of a thinner mixture than that
provided in Mr. Yeon's original speci
fications. This thinner mixture is
similar to that laid on the county roads
in Pierce County, Washington.
Mr. Yeon did not recommend the lean
mixture concrete. He said as much in
the letter to the Commissioners accom
panying the specifications.
