"The greatest work of the 'system'
I ever saw at a race track," said
George Morgan, who is Jn Williajn
Fox's racing picture, "Sporting lilood"
at Ye Liberty Sunday and Monday,
"was a man who oeiievcil that the
number 13 was lucky.
"He would always bet on the thir
teenth horse on a card, and if there
were not thirteen entries, he would
count down ami then up until he got
to the thirteenth horse. He was always
careful to count the bottom and top
names twice, as he said he counted all
the other names twice in running up
ami down over the list.
"After he had carefully counted the
thirteenth horse, he would verify the
number, then bet on him.
"Tho thirteen scheme worked just
about as well as any other system of
which I've heard."
"No, Christmas tree this year?"
"No," replied Mrs. Bliggins.
"Children outgrown tinsel and toys."
"No. Father has lost his ambition
to play Santa Claus."

j newest picture, in which she is fea

I point was just an unpromising pair of
'shoes. The director was not altogether
! satisfied to let her put these shoes into
; the story until she explained what she
intended to do with them.
"Well, then, I'll tell you," said Miss
Marsh with some asperity. "I'm sup
posed to be the poverty-stricken daugh

died- I'm not supposed to have ever
known what it was to have even crea

pair of .shoes, that is too much of a
luxury for everyday use is going to
menu a great deal to me.
"The heuil of the household has a
pair of shoes. When he dies, they arc
not going to let them go to waste.
Naturally, the daughter of the house
gets them, because the mother is bc
vong the stage of primping up, and it
is part of the daughter's duty to try to
get a man."
"But the shoes will ze too big," pro
tested the director, looking down at
her little feet.
"That's oil the better," cried Miss
Marsh enthusiastically. "The ridicu

persons living as poor Molly-0 docs.
