"The Painter! I..idy," the youthful
mother of (Irizel, heroine of the pic
ture, who has a penchant for the fri
volities and constantly looks for a let
ter from her lover which never comes.
It is the sort of a role for which Miss
Taliaferro with her elfin, wistful wax

of it makes it stand out as one of the
classics of screen characterizations.

two years old, she created such roles
as I.ovey Mary in "Mrs. Wiges of the
Cabbage Patch:" Polly in "Polly of the
Circus;" Nance Olden in "The Bishop's

screen was in Cinderella" in 1912-13

she achieved wide popularity.

May McAvoy as drizel and others in
the cast include George Fawcett, Leila

one of the most notable concerns Cecil

everything else Is put first and Christ
is left out. Parents should aid their
children in choosing their life work
by conferring with them on each oc

difficulties as well as t lie attractive

The man who Is less honest in I he

of putting Christ first. "With what

taught that self-sacrifice as urged b.v

accepting Christ, the ruling class ex

Sleep time is the time when

of many that the cup of tea or

them of sleep.
