Not So Lon
A romantic comedy of the days when old New York, was young when
Times Square was a pasture and Broadway just a cowpath. Produced with
great charm and color by the directorof "Little Old New York." "Peter
Pan" in pantalettes. The belle of New York, not so long ago; when horse
cars rattled through the streets a mile-an-hour, and bicycling was a thrill!

Everybody's Talking About Mike!
You'll laugh at the scrapes that Mike falls heir to, and gasp at her thrilling

away train. It's the most exciting photoplay story : ever-; filmed the great
mail robbery the lone car with three kids abroad sent hurling down a cliff
but wait till you see this perfect picture of hilarious comedy, blood-curdling
thrills and golden romance! You'll laugh! You'll cry! You'll adore it!
