Judy Abbott was an orphan in the John Gricr Orphanage. She was moth
ered by an ashenn, found by a policeman, named from a telephone directory
and later sent to college by a man she knew as "Daddy Dong Legs." Just
who "Daddy Long Legs" was Mary never knew, but she imagined him to
look something like the man in the illustration above. "Daddy Long Legs"
is Marv Piekford's latest, photoplay, her first to be made by lier own com
pany and probably the greatest thing she has ever done. The play is
adapted from the famous novel by Jean Webster of the same name. The
picture will play at the Victoria Theater all next week.

arrival was more or less a secret, but
when Marcus Loew heard of it he
sent her a message of welcome and

Jane and Katherine Lee, the juve
nile screen stars, who are at present
making two reel comedies, recently
received a letter from Japan which
shows how their fame has spread.
The letter written in scrawly Bng
lish asks if the kiddies would not at
tend a social function to be held in
Wang-Tu early in December. The
Japanese admirer promises he will
pay their transportation and see that
there is a good crowd present to wel

Pearl White, who won more praise
as a serial star than any other sin
gle motion picture actress, lias de
cided to pass up the hair-raising
serial game and enter the motion pic
lure game as a star of other waters.
Miss White was offered a handsome
salary if she would but remain in the
movies as a serial queen but she re
fused. She will be shown from now
on only in five-reel features. Work
on the first one, the name of which
has not been announced, will be
started shortly. Motion picture
critics throughout the country claim,
however, she will become even more
popular as a feature star.
News from the D. W. Griffith mo
tion picture studios in California has
just brought to light the fact that
Lady Diana Manners, daughter of the
Duke and Duchess of Rutland, and
considered the most beautiful woman
in England, had signed a contract to
appear in motion pictures in Amer
ica under the Griffith direction on the
very day she received the serious in
jury while watching the Victory pa
rade in London.
It will be recalled that Lady Diana
posed for the motion picture camera
in London during the taking of the
scenes for Mr. Griffith's "The Great
Love," a picture shown in this coun
try last year. From that time the
distinguished titled beauty had a
| great longing toward the movies.
I On the day that. Lady Diana had
| signed the contract to come to Amer
-1 ica and learn motion picture acting
j under D. W. Griffith, she was injur-
I ed , )? y falling through a skylight
while witnessing the march of the
• returned soldiers. Her hip was
j broken and she suffered internal in-
I juries. This accident may prohibit
her appearance in the films, as it is
i reported she will be unable to walk
j without crutches.
] For the present Mr. Griffith has
i abandoned all plans for introducing
I this distinguished lady to American
: audiences.

Pennsylvania Shooters
To Leave For Caldwell;
Strongest State Team
At 9:15 to-morrow morning the ad-, 1
\ance guird of the Pennsylvania
Civilian Rifle Team will depart for |
Caldwell, New Jersey, to take part j
In the National matches. These con
tests art. being held under the direc
tion of the Secretary of War. Local
shooters will compete against pick
ed teams of the United States Marine
Corps, the finest in the world, the
Army and the Navy, as well as teams
from almost every State in the Union
and Iter territories, including a team
each from Alaska, Puerto Rico,
Hawaii and the Philippine Islands,
comprising in all approximately 1,000
expert riflemen.
The big tournament is being held
at the Na/y Range, located along
the Parsing River, about four miles
from Caldwell. During the heavy
rnins recently, a large dam located a
short distance north ot the range
broke and the entire camp was cov
ered with water to a depth of live
feet. This left the camp in a filthy j
unsanitary condition, and resulted in >
considerable sickness among some of
the civilian teams which arrived for
the opening day shoot on August 4. |
Adjutant General lJeary and his team
captain nave been in almost daily
communication with the officials at
Cald.voll, who now report conditions
greatly improved, and with the ex
ception of mosquitoes.
I'ciiiinylviiiila Tcnin.
The team representing the Com
monwealth of Pennsylvania was
selected oy Adjutant General Reary
after a number of competitive
matches . This was accomplished by
the organization of a State League
which shot a series of matches, be
ginning in May. The Clubs com
prising the League consisted of the
Fort Pitt Rifle Club of Pittsburgh,
the University Rifle Club of Read
ing, the Keystone Club and the H.ir- '
risburg Rifle Club. A few other
marksmen who were not members of
the League also competed and in one
or two instances, won the right to
a place on the team.
Owing to sickness and business
reasons, four of the best shots in
Pennsylvania, if not in the United
Stales, are not able to go to the
National Matches. These were Capt.
Wade T. Kline, of Greensburg, Paul
H. Dillman, of Pittsburgh, Dr. E. A.
Waugamqn, of Pittsburgh, and E. W.
Sweeting, of Warren.
Splendid substitutions were made,
however, and the team that repre
sents Pennsylvania this year is the
strongest sent out of this State since
