"A MOTHER'S SIN."
A Strong Drama of a Son's Devotion
to His Mother's Memory.
A man's hatred of a faithless wife
wreaked on his son, Is the theme of
"A Mother's Sin," the Vitagraph Blue
Ribbon Feature, which will be the attraction at the Ilo Ilo Theatre tonight.
In this powerful drama written by
Hilda Sharpe, the father permits the
son to go the pace, and then when he
Is hopelessly In debt, disinherits' him
In tbe hope of gloating over his disgrace. But the son thwarts him to
the extent of leaving the country and
the father dying realizes the great
injustice he has done. He makes a
new will which does not come to
light for several years.
Meanwhile a profligate nephew gets
the estate and almost gets the girl the
son loves, but Anally the wlll ls discovered and all turns out happily.
The picture Is replete with strong
situations which are well taken care
of by Earle Williams, the star, and
by Mirjam Miles, Denton Vane, Ernest
Maupaln, Fred Peters, Charles Horton,
Louise Du Pre and Eleanor Lawson.
Miriam Miles, talented and beautiful young Vitagraph player, who has
the leading feminine role, was born ln
Shreveport, La., daughter of one of
the oldest French families in the
South, the lineage on her father's side
extending back to the nobles of
France. When seven years old, she
entered St. Francis Academy for
girls, a convent In Shreveport, where
she remained until she was fifteen,
when she removed to Texas.

CRASHING THROUGH TO RERUN
GERMAN EMPEROR OUTRAGES SANCTITY OF THEOLOGY
Drama of Great World War. From the Day Archduke Francis
Ferdinand of Austria Wa.s Slain in Serbia Down to Date, will
be Presented in Kemarkah e Film Review at the Ilo Ilo
Theatre on Tuesday; April 8th.
This great cinema feature is a review of the world-war from the day
of the funeral of the Archduke Francis
Ferdinand of Austria in Serbia—tbo
assassination of whom is said to have
been the direct cause of the war—fj
the present lime.'
Noted Americans Screened
It includes hundreds of scenes depicting the manner in which the
United States got ready to whip the
Kaiser. President Wilson, Secretary
of War Baker, General Persuing and
scores of 'other administration an 1
military leaders arc shown in various
incidents and events. The drafting
and training of the 1,760,000 American soldiers now ahroad, the raising
of the huge war loan funds, the work
of the American Red Cross, Y.M.C.A.,
Knights of ColumbUB, Y.M.H.A., and
other patriotic organizations—all aie
presented, authentically in actual, not
"posed"  pictures.
Noted educators have characterized
"Crashing Through to Berlin" as an
invaluable aid in the teaching of the
history of tiie war, Tlie press has
acclaimed it Hie most authentic review of the struggle against the
Kaiser yet presented, and hundreds of
thousands of theatre patrons have
cheered themselves hoars'e over tlie
thrilling scenes. —
Not content with declaring war on
all nations which refused to submit
to his pernicious policy of Prussian
dominance of tlie world, tho German
Emperor now has taken issue witli
Heaven, and has discarded the beautiful philosophy which forms tiie basis
of all theology.
Dispatches from Amsterdam, Stockholm, Berne, Copenhagen aud other
neutral centres of Europe indicate
that William Von Hohenzollern will
continue the depredations which have
horrified the universe .
Merciless war upon women and
children will be prosecuted with the
same ruthless vigor with which the
German nation has subordinated the
teachings of the Supreme Being to n
fiendish lust for unrestricted power.
An  Authentic  Review.
Books and newspapers have been
filled with stories of the world war
for the past four years. Motion picture producers have Hooded the market with gripping "plays" of the conflict. Svenes and Incidents have been
screened at odd intervals, but It-has
remained for "Crashing Through to
Berlin" to present the first authentic,
connected film review of the struggle
from July 28, 1914, to date.
"Crashing Through to Berlin" is not
a "fiction" picture, ii is an assemblage of scenes and Incidents from
thousands of films made during the
past four years. "Actual7 events of
the world's history .since Archduke
Francis Ferdinand was slain in Serbia in 11)14, have been depicted in
historical sequence, so that the cause
of, and events incidental to, the declaration of war upon France and England by tlie Kaiser are detailed with
faithful  accuracy.
Critics  are   Kn til used.
"Crashing Through to Berlin" has
been li'-raldcd by critics wherever it
has been shown as the mosl gripping
review yet presented- of the btrugglq
which lias gone on In Europe for the
past four years.
The picture shirts with the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand of Austria and bis consort in
Hie privilege of conducting a judicial
inquiry in Serbia Russia, Serbia's
ally, protests, witli Serbia, against
such a course Germany declares war
on Russia and demands that France
define her attitude toward neutrality. '
France's answer is to mobilize her
army. The Kaiser declares war on
France.
England, menaced by Germany,
decides to take the side of oppressed
nations, especially Belgium, whose
territorial integrity lias ben violated
by the Prussian hordes in an attempted invasion of France.
Then Germany opens horrible warfare upon England, France, Belgium
and Russia. Atrocities that would
have shamed the barbarians of old
are committed upon Belgian and
French towns aud cities, and babies
are slain in air raids upon England,
t nclc Hum  Kntcrs  lYnr.
Later the Lusitanfn is sunk. About
the same time Italy takes up arms
against the Kaiser. President Wilson
warns Germany that American rights
on the high seas must be respected.
The Prussian war bound laughs nt
America's protests, and continues his
submarine attacks on defenceless
ships. Finally, President Wilson asks
Congress to declare the existence of
a state of war with Germany.
From that time on every significant
development in the world's war history Is depicted. "Crashing Through
to Berlin" was made for the purposes
of instruction and entertainment only.
No attempt has beep made to inject
"comedy," nor highly sensational
"acted" episodes, and its remarkable
success has been due largely to its
thrilling depletion of facts -and facts
only.

What Phonograph Shall I Buy?"
How many times, when the subject of purchasing
a phonograph or talking machine has come up, have
you asked yourself this question !
The Edison tone test answers it for you,
completely, convincingly.
Over two million music lovers have been present
when this test was being made; and they have
realized, as you will realize, that the New Edison
alone can actually re-create the human voice and
the music of human-played instruments.
It is all-important that you hear
%e NEW EDISON
"The Phonograph with a Soul"
became It il the only instrument that re-creates the singer's voice so
faithfully that the human ear cannot distinguish the rendition of the
artist from that ol the New Edison,
The wise way to choose your phonograph is to have the several
makes ot phonographs and talking machines sent to your home on
ti i-il, where you can make direct comparisons among them, and then
decide which one you would like to keep—which one you think you
would enjoy hearing as much five years from now as you do to-day.
Be your own salesmen. Sell a phonograph to yourself. We will
gladly send a New Edison to your home lor the purpose, without
obligation on your part.
Why Telephne Numbers Should
be Given Slowly, one
Digit at a Time.
Within reach of each operator are rows of small
holes called "jacks." Through these the connections
are made with flexible cords, the tips of which are
inserted in the "jacks" corresponding to numbers
called.
Here a connection is being made with 1-2-2-3.
The operator must work with care and precision. Most
important of all is that she shall understand correctly
the connection desired. Numbers rattled off hurriedly
are often incorrectly given.
It will help greatly if you will give the number
in this way: one-two-two-three, speaking slowly and
distinctly.
