Just whero is tho photoplay serial? Is
It as much on tho wano as some .authori
ties MTT Is it as popular-as tho recep
lo' horded certain pictures by certain
audiences seems to Indicate? That Is a
Mint which nobody but photoplay fans
Kn answer. The editor of tho. Evening
SooXphotoplay department will be
tlad to hear from them. But, first, pon
der some facts and rumors.
According to tho current Issue of
tfnriet thero has been a big shake-up at
the Vltagraph studio, nil on account of
L serial. Halph Ince Is understood to
have resigned from the Vltagraph servlco
and jolncTthe N. Y. M. P. With nco
roes Anita Stewart, who has been play
. ng the principal rolo in "Tho Goddess"
"liicB's sevcranco of relations with the
VltsMs said to bo through an nrgument
ever "The Goddess" serial, which of late
Is reported to have been almost unsal
able. Several exhibitors, according to
Variety, turned back the picture and
' ethers passed it up with tho result that
' the Vltagraph Is reported having blamed
Ince and Miss Stewart for Its Inability to
create the impression desired.
On the other hand, the serial that is
popular serves a very useful purpose In
drawing audiences regularly week after
week. And some serials are popular, very
popular. The same method of gauging
popularity, applause, holds good In tho
regular theatre nnd the photoplay house.

"The Broken com, a serial picture, were

abandoned, nnd that tho memorial bo placed
In tho Delaware State House at Dover.
Efforts to honor tho memory of Caesar Rod
ney by placing a tablet in Independence Hall

tablet did not architecturally or artistically
agreo with tho Interior decorations of tho
building. The decision of tho Jury was con
sidered final, and the effortH of those advo
cating the tablet ceased. The action of the
Art Jury was criticised by many who wished to
honor the memory of the patriot who left his
bed and rodo on horseback from Wilmington
to Philadelphia to sign tho Declaration ot
Independence, notwithstanding that lie was at
the point ot death.

"I dcclnre, she's got n big chip basket.

akimbo, started for the patch.
"Here, mother, come back. I'll go."
Mrs. Lnngdon looked relieved.
Grayson pulled his hat down over his
eyes, stuck his hands deep down In his
pockets nnd advanced upon the enemy.
"Dear knows what mother would say
to her," he mused, looking curiously to
ward the bobbing sunbon'iet among tho
berry bushes. "Wonder If sho Is pretty I

A terrified scream ahead of hlni In tho

sophical revery. With a bound ho was
over the fence nnd tearing his way
through the briars toward the girl who
was backing away In horror from some
thing upon the ground.
He saw what It was Instantly, a harm

cool bhndo of tho bushes had been rudely
disturbed. Grayson caught a glimpse of
Its tall as It wriggled away to safety un
der n dense mass of .bushes In tho op
posite direction taken by tho girl.
Ho also noticed the girl's face under
tho bonnet, ns sho stood too terrified to
speak, and swayed slightly as she
clutched at tho bushes for support. She
was surprisingly beautiful.
"I I'm caught fufct!" she managed to
whisper with dry lips. "Please help ino
to get away."
"Don't bo frightened," he tried to as
sure her.. "The snake escaped beforo I
could kill It; but really It's a very harm
less kind. I bcllevo it's as badly scared

She smiled wanly. "As I am. Yes, I

"Oh, I beg your pardon. I forgot that

mother will appreciate It. Wo aro staying
at the Pelton farm, tho first house you

about a half mile. My name Is Marie
Storm. By tho way, I went up to your
house, beforo I started to pick berries, but
there was no ono around. I was going
to ask permission. But there are millions
of berries, and I didn't suppose your
mother would mind If I didn't wnlt."
"I guess father and mother were out

She laughed prettily. "I didn't know

Grayson picked berries until sundown,
after tho fair trespasser had gone. His
mother took the basket when he reached
tho porch. Ho watched her set It on a
high shelf to keep until morning.
"Had a hard time getting rid of her,

The man and his wife who did the farm

four gnltons of berries were gonel
"Never mind, mother. There's millions

"Now, Grayson Langdon, what' the

Orayson puffed thoughtfully nt his
