his character as well as does this Jap
anese star. The reason for this Is the
mentality- of ths actor, allied with
vivia Imagination and facility 01 ex
pression possessed only by the elect of
the drama.
"Playing a role for the silent drama
is more taxing to me than, if I were
playing before an audience personally,"
said Hayakawa, seen while the pro
duction of "Bonds of Honor" was in
progress."
- "The reason for this is that X must
visualize my audience, try to feel
something which is. not there. In the
spoken drama the actor has his finger.
figuratively, on the pulse of his audi
ence and plays up to them.
"In pictures the personal element Is
lacking and the actor must put himself
in a subjective mood entirely, his own
nersonal feeling being the criterion of
judgment. This makes tremendous de
mands upon the sincere mind ; his lm
agination must be ever on the alert and
his sense of proportion always properly
balanced."

QTAR "In For Thirty Days," a story

The imagination of the beholder is
called upon to follow the young hero

in the sunny south which is many years
behind the times and which still prac

out prisoners, to those who need help,
for the sum. of 20 cents a day.
Touring through the, country in her
speedy car, - the beautiful society girl
finds that the people of this particular
town are bitterly opposed to fast driv

through the town.

DEOPLES Ever a popular favorite on
- stage and Bcreen. Dustin Famum is
enjoying the good fortune, according to
general report, of being provided in "A
Man In the Open." this week's new of
fering at the Peoples, with what Is prov
ing to be the strongest and most attrac
tive role of his career.
' This offering! closely based in story
on the thrilling novel written by Roger
Pocock and dealing with the adventures
of a son of Maine, who. shipwrecked on
an ocean voyage, falls into the comrade
ship of the sturdy and great-hearted
men of the Northwest, -
Fate, however, plays a shabby trick
on the tenderfoot in permitting him to
fall a victim to the wiles of an adven
turess who beguiles him into marriage
simply to win a wager she has made.
Disillusionment follows for this man of
the sea and land, and he betakes him
self to the virgin woods to lead the life
of A Man in the Open. His stirring ad
ventures in the Northwestern wilds form
the main thread of the story, in which
soon another, and this time, a whole
souled girl, figures and lends fascinating
heart interest to the plcturisation. .
The action of "A Man In the Open" Is
said to be swift and punctuated by pe
riods of gripping suspense, with a start
ling denouement to close .the stery. '
' The play has a strong supporting cast,
and not the least of its features being
some wonderful photography of forest,
mountain and night scenes.
The -Peoples News Pictorial and a
comedy reel are offered on the same
program.
Same Tragic Death
Freeport, Me., March 29. (I. N. s.) .
Mrs. Mary E. Llttlefleld, 75 years old.

stood on the site of the house in which
her mother lost her life in the same
manner.
GLOBE. In Hags," the story of a
girl's rise from the lowest strata
of life to a position of social importance,
through which she finds it possible to
marry the man she loves. Mary Pick
ford, for whom the story was especially
written by Edith Barnard Delano; -finds
a charmingly effective . characterization.
This original photoplay, starring "Little
Mary," is the new week attraction at
the Qlobe.
There ,ls substantial material In "Rags"
on which to build one of those great
("photoplays in which Paramount . has
always . , succeeded in presenting this
popular star. There is melodrama in
some parts of the story, refined by a
touch Of delicacy inseparable from all
of Miss Pickford's impersonations.
"Little Mary" is the crowning glory of
the . subject, and the manner in which
she Illustrates her emergence from the
sordid , world into which her father's
drunkenness places her, is . worthy of
her art. :
On the same program is Charlie Chap
lin in "A Dog's Life."

CIRCLE. To play the star role and also
direct the picture is a' large order,
but William S. Hart does both mcst
excellently in "Shark Monroe." his latest
Artcraft picture to be produced under
the supervision of Thomas H. Ince,
which, will be shown at the Circle thea
tre i today and tomorrow. The stellar
role is that of Shark Monroe, the cap
tain of "The Gull." a sealing schooner,
and the story tells how Shark comes to
love a beautiful girl from the East, and
how he follows her up the Great White
Trail in Alaska, where he rescues her
from a "buzzard of the North." proves
his courage and wins her love. It is
an unusually thrilling picture, finely
produced and has an exceptionally bril
liant cast of screen players.
