Those who have already seen
"Harriet and the Piper," both at
the coast and in New York, ar
unanimous in declaring it the best
film vehicle in which Miss Stewart
has yet appeared.

of the screen worlds will be seen
by local motion picture goers in

special which, will have a run of
three days, beginning Thursday,

Corinne. Griffith will be seen In
a Vitagraph picture called '"Bab'
Candidate" at the BHgh theatre
on Friday and Saturday. It is the
story of a girl who takes a hand
in politics when the men folks
fail to manage to her liking, and
inskes a great success of it, up
setting ail precedents, and put
ting the most unheard of man in

was a village pauper.
The most dazzling assortment
of jewe's and Kowns ever worn
by Anita Stewart will be seen
when her latest First National
picture, "Harriet and the Piper,"
opens an engagement of four days
at the Liberty theater, beginning
today. In one scene she appears
as a queen of Greenwich village,
wearing a bizarre princess cos
tume, heavily laden with gems
and beads, and displaying a bril
liant feathered head dress. The
settinps, which are true repro
ductions of Greenwich Village
htudios, were urranged by Di
rector Bertram Bracken, who
made a special trip to New York's
famous Bohemian quarter to get
atmosphere for the production.
