Greek Connlston, son of William
Conniston, a Wall Street broker, is
ordered by his father to stop spending
money foolishly and join him in California. He starts westwards, taking
with him Roger Uapgood, who Is
practically living on his bounty.
Just for a lark, Conniston and Hap-
good get off the train at the desert
town of Indian Creek, a western girl
of unusual beauty and charm being
the attraction. In a gambling game
with a couple of cowboys, they win
the cowboys' outfits.
With their newly acquired outfits,
they ride to the Half Moon Ranch,
where thc girl, Argyl Crawford, lives.
Conniston telegraphs his fathehr for
more moneaf. Word comes that henceforth he must shift for himself, and he
accepts the offer of John Crawford,
the owner of the ranch, to take a job
as cowboy.
Uapgood proposes to Argyl and is
repulsed. He then sells his services
ns lawyer to Crawford's rivals, who
are trying to ruin his reclamation
Conniston breaks a broncho and
"licks" the ranch bully, thus winning
the respect of the boys and Argyl. Ho
goes to work under Truxton, the
superintendent, on the reclamation
project, which must he completed at
a specified date. In case of failute,
Crawford will lose everything he has.
Incited by a rival concern, the workmen one night engage in a drunken
riot. Truxton, dead drunk in his
tent, cannot stop them. Conniston
takes command of the situation and
orders the men back to work. He Is
placed In Truxton's position.
Word comes from William Conniston that he has a million dollars invested in the attempt to ruin Crawford's project, but young Connlsion
answers that his honor is at stake
and be will not give up the work.
Uapgood and the rival owner dynamite the dam, to make the completion
of the work an impossibility. In the
explosion Hapgood, who set off (lie
fuse, meets his death. William Connlsion. displeased at the unscrupulous
methods used, says he Is willing to
spend a million to right the wrong
done. Young Conniston, in the live
remaining days before the expiration
of the contract, rushes the work and
repairs Ihe damage. Then he claims
his reward—tbo love of Argyl.

In tho .Metro wondorplay, "Under
Handicap," Is one of the Idols of the
motion pictarc world. Ills rise to
fame reads like a page from romance.
The popular Metro star started in
life In a field quite remote from thul
of the silent drama. His early youth
wns spent in Newark, N.J., whore Lis
lather was a breeder of high grade
horses. He wns expected to follow
iu tlie. business, where the nest bad
been well feathered for the young
Bui the coming star was not content to accept a ready made future.
It was only natural that a youngster
of bis grit and determination did not

metropolis of the country, New York.

"The gladdest nnd the saddest faco
on the screen," which the Inimitable
Mae Marsh is said lo possess, conies to
delight tbe admirers of Ihe Goldwyn
star In "All Woman," by E. Lloyd
Sheldon, at the llo Ilo next Friday.
In a role replete with great dramatic opportunities, in which the winsome charm of tlie slim star Is afforded" wide scope, Mae Marsh promises
to give the screen world a sensation.
The originality of the play, Its gripping '.man quality and Us steady,
certai.i- development up to the moment
of the powerful climax leave nothing
to be desired. "All Woman" Is not
just a pbotodramn, but a compelling
example of what Goldwyn ls doing to
dignify and strengthen Ihe literature
of the silent draa.
As the working girl who inherits
neither money nor vast estates, but a
mountain hotel, Mae Marsh is said to
exhibit the most appealing phase of
her undisputed talents. When she
discovers that it is not a luxurious
hostelry of which she has become
owner, hut a resort of evil reputation.
Miss Marsh portrays all the pangs of
girlish disillusionment. From that
moment until the last scene in the
play the story of "All Woman" gains
In steady, cumulative power until the
chance Is given the girl from the city
to reach a moment of glorious self-
sacrifice for the man she loves.
The role of Susan Sweeney rfius the
gamut of the emotions, hanging all
the way from timid bewilderment,
when the girl learns of her inheritance, until she throws away reputation, honor and the respect of the
man sho loves for the sake of this
very man. It is confidently expected
by Goldwyn that Mao Marsh in "All
Woman" will score tho most substantial success of her remarkable career.

When Mae Marsh watches the first

Mae Marsh, but as a different person.

heard by Director llobart Henley
when he and the slim star witnessed

The whimsicalities of country polities are mirrored In "Al Woman," Mao
Marsh's newest Goldwyn photoplay,
which will be shown at tlie Ilo Ilo
next Friday, In the course of which
nil the amusing incidents of n bnrk-
WOods campaign are made use of.
A coast fisherman soon becomes an
expert in thc mailer of finding bis
way about under the difficulties of
fog or darkness. So many subtle
little hints und clues enter into his
calculations that to the- uninitiated
landsman lie often seems to possess
an uncanny intuition, A well known
naturalist tells an amusing story In
Ibis connection.
I was doing some deep-water collecting one Bummer off the coast of
.Maine, he says. To facilitate matters
I arranged with a local fisherman for
the use of his motor dory for a few
hours each day. I soon learned that
triy skipper had an almost unbelievable instinct for directions and distances. Many times when we wero
caught some distance offshore iu a
fog he would unerringly bring the
bont up to his home wharf.
But one day the fisherman was completely fooled. We had been travelling
homeward for about twenty minutes
when he took out bis watch and shut
off the motor. A dog barked faintly
intlie distance far off to the left. The
fisherman immediately cranked tho
motor, turned the wheel abruptly to
port and headed off iu -that direction.
Again ho stopped after some minutes'
running. Another dog barked faintly
—hut this time far to the right. The
fisherman looked puzzled. Then
through the fog came the long-drawn
note of his wife's Jish horn. She had
evidently heard him pass by the wharf
and was calling him back. A dawning light broke over the fisherman's
weather-beaten face, and with a
sheepish grin he turned la me.
"Well," lie said emphatically, "I'll
be darned if I imint been a-chasiu'
the wrong dog!"
Through Mud (u Shanghai
When the British flagship, Euralus,
was at Woosung, "Chinese" Gordon
was at Shanghai drilling tlie Chinese
government troops to meet the advancing Tfllplng rebels, who were then
marching on Shanghai. The town of
Woosung lies at the point where the
Woosung River leaves the Yangtze
River nnd flows twenty miles to
Shanghai and beyond. The rebels bad
already taken Kaliding. a fortified
place outside Shanghai, on a branch
of the Woosung River.
It come to a critical point al hist.
Gordon sent down by boa! !'► the
flagship a message, in so many words.
"If yon don't come up, Shanghai and
I are gone."
A bar, strangely enough, lay up and
down Hie river, and not across it. as
usual, says Capt. Albert It. Wonbam,
iu "Spun Varus of a Naval Officer,"
and there was not enough water on
the bar hy some four or five teel to
float our fifty-gun frigate Inlortu-
natcly, we were un the wrong side.
uud there Beemed no way o( getting
across, There was no time to lose,
however, as the Tai pings were "looking through the gates of Shanghai."
With a rush at about ten knots, off
we b toa mod up 'lie river; then we put
tbe helm hard as tar board until the
