Music and Motion Pictures
pMSSSt'Sa." V •*. V-
The relationship of music to mo
tion pictures is a subject of interest
and importance to those who follow
1 the development of the silent drama.
' Just how much of the effectiveness
| of a screen masterpiece is due to im
j pressions received by the ear as well
1 as the eye is brought forth in David
Warlt Griffith's big dramatic produc
! tion, "The Mother and the Law," to
i be seen at the Victoria all next week,
coning direct from the George M.
'Cohan Theater, New York.
In this latest of the big Griffith
features a special orchestra accom
paniment is made part and parcel of
the entertainment as a whole, the
incidental music arranged by Louis
Gottschalk adding materially to
the interpretation of the various
| scenes and incidents. The score of
| "The Mother and the Law" is con-
I sidered by Mr. Griffith of equal im
i portance with the dramatic develop
ment of his story, to such an extent
! in fact that he spent several weeks
l on the music alone in order that
every detail of his tremendous drama
might have proper and appropriate
musical interpretation.
D. \V. Griffith may be said to be
i the real pioneer in discovering and
' introducing the value of music as a
part of a motion picture entertain-
I ment. He first introduced this im
! portant factor in "The Birth of a
| Nation," and added to its importance
| both in "Intolerance" and "Hearts of
the World." Now, in "The Mother
J and the Law" he again introduces a
special orchestral accompaniment
j that is considered by musical experts
the most ingenious weaving of music
j and story thus far achieved.
Fatty Arbucklc Has Always Had a
Desire to Be a Magnate and
Now He Is
A few weeks ago Fatty Arbuckle
attended the baseball game in Los
I Angeles and was considerably annoy
, ed by a couple of plays which the
! stout side-spiitter declared were of
; the bonehead variety,
i "It seems to me," said Fatty to his
genera! manager, Lou Anger, who
j was sitting with him, "that foolish
plays could be eliminated entirely if
the man vvjio owns the ball club
would have a daily heart-to-heart
talk with his players. I don't mean
to haul them over tbe coals or get
j rough with them, but just a little
earnest chat in which the manager
or owner could point out the mis
j takes made in the previous game."
1 "According to my figuring there
j are just about 1,000 ways to make a
jbriftfthbad play oft a baseball dia
mond. Now suppose the team made
j fifty darn-fool mistakes every day.
; It would only taka twenty days to
1 tell them about every bone' possible
on a. ball field and after that you'd
j have a perfect team. The more I
' think of it the better it looks and
I'm going to put it to the test.
| "Here's my checkbook, Lou. "I'll
just sign this and leave the amount
; blank. You take it over and see what
they viant for the Vernon baseball
club. Whatever they quote you as a
| figure for a cash sale, put that
amount on the check."
"I'll offer them half," said Mr. An-
I ger, cautiously.
j "Well," answered the jovial com
edian, smilingly, "use your own judg
ment. but be sure I'm the owner of
I the team when you come back."
| Mr. Anger hurried away and was
) soon seen whispering with Tom Dar
i mudy and "Puss" Halbriter, Presi
dent and secretary of the club, re
> spectively. Then followed a hasty
j visit to the office of the Vernon club
and when Mr. Anger came down the
steps he carried the papers in his
hand that made Roscoe Arbuckle the
j new owner of The organization.
I "Here you are, Roscoe," he shout
ed as he joyously placed the papers
,in the comedian's hand. "Now you
; own the club."
; "I do, eh?" said Fatty, "well tell
that, umpire to stop calling strikes
on my men or I'll come out there and
umpire the game myself. Then I
. know we'll win."
Jack D eropsey outfought Jess
V lllard at Toledo, on July 4 and won
the heavyweight championship of the
world, he turned the trick so easily
that there was considerable agitation
among the boxing fraternity as to
who would be the next logical con
tender for the heavyweight crown.
' With few exceptions the Held is
i bare of prospects able to put up the
i kind of battle that would entice the
I title holder into the ring. Now comes
I Elmo Lincoln, a moving picture actor,
who has won fame as the "Hercules
of the Screen." who wired a challenge
to Demsey from California last week.
And the young giant of the picture
camera has such a good chance of
putting up a scrap that may lose
Demsey the title, that he has attract
ed James J. Jeffries and James J.
Ccrbett, both former champions to his
'camp. Lincoln now has representatives
in Chicago and New York, camping on
tile trail of Demsey amd his manager.
Jim Jeffries has wired the following
statement in support of his faith in
the young movie actor;
"I have carefully examined Elmo
Lincoln and see in him the ability to
put up a wonderful battle against
Demsey. I am convinced Lincoln has
strength and endurance. What we
must teach him is speed. He has
never boxed professionally but he has
wrestled and fought to the limit of a
1 man's endurance in motion picture
work. I think so much of his chances
I to put up a scrap that I am willing to
associate myself with Jim Corbett In
' supervising his training and my ranch
i near Burbank, Cal.. is at his disposal
I for the establishment of a training
; camp."
Lincoln should not flght Demsey
I before Thanksgiving or Christmas.
I New Year's might be better. This is
going to require a lot of stiff training.
; hut Lincoln's clean life means much
iin his favor. He Is another clean
I young fellow of the Dempsey type,
i just the sort who should be encourag
ed for the benefit of the boxing game
I that it may be kept on a high level."
Jp.mes J. Corbett is now in New
York, where he is using every en
i denvor in an attempt to arrange a
i tout between Lincoln and Demsey.
1 Elmo Lincoln Is known to thou
sands of motion picture devotees for
I his portrayal of Tarzan In "Tarzan of
| the Apes." as the blacksmith both In
"The Birth of a Nation" and "Intol
erance." In the latter production he
was also seen as "The Mighty Man
of Valor."
Lincoln Is about the same age as
Dempsey. He was born In Indiana,
reared on a farm, and later became a
railroad fireman, where he laid the
foundation for his strength. His am-

Jackson Wins
Philadelphia, Sept. 5. Benny
Leonard defeated Soldier Bartfleld in
the wind-up at the Philadelphia Ball
Park last night, having the Soldier In
bad shape at the last bell. It was a
case of a skillful, careful boxer against
a wild, slugging fighter, and the boxer
had the better of the argument. The
bout was fast at all times, hut It was
not as exciting as it might have been,
owing to the difference in the style of
the two men. In the second round Bart
field went down from a punch and a
push by Leonard. That was the only
time either trian was off his feet .al
though each man was staggered by
blows to the head not hard enough to
put either one down. Leonard was
bleeding slightly from the mouth, and
Bartfleld was bleeding from the nose
when the bout ended.
In the semi-wind-up Willie Jackson
defeated Joe Phillips, who took the bout
on at a moment's notice. In the first
round Phillips clouted Jackson over the
eye, and in the third round with wild
swings he rocked Jackson's head.
That made Jackson box very care
fully. otherwise he might have knocked
Phillips out. as he had Joe in pretty
bad shape in the final round, although
he could never hit the Italian lad hard
enough to put him off his feet.
John Murray Wins
Johnny Murray outboxed Joe O'Don
nell, the Gloucester ironworker. In six
rounds that were far from exciting.
O'onnell, as usual, and at all times,
carried the fight to the New Yorker,
but Murray had the better of the box
ing in every round, although he could
never hit O'Donnell hard enough to
bother him for a second. Murray fouled
O'Donnell all through the bout by hold
ing and wrestling.
Joe Benjamin, the California light
weight, stopped Joe Ivovus in three
rounds. Benjamin greatly outclassed
the Port Richmond boxer. After stag
gering Kovus three times in the first
round Benjamin dropped him for the
count of nine. In the second round
Kovus was down again for seven and
was weak and bleeding when the round
ended. Benjamin scored another knock
down in the third round—when Kovus
got to his feet he was wobbly on his
feet Benjamin backed him to the
The Californian banged Kovus a
couple of times on the jaw and the lat

stopped the bout.
Max Williamson and Patsey Wallace
opened the show, their bout being
staged 15 minutes after the time an
nounced for the show to start It was
a tame affair with neither lad suffer
ing any damage and ended with honors
about even. Williamson landed more
blows than Wallace, but Patsey's
punches were the harder.

Hair Often Ruined
By Careless Washing
Soap should be used very care
fully, if you want to keep your hair
looking its best. Most soaps and
prepared shampoos contain too
much alkali. This dries the scalp,
makes the hair brittle, and ruins it.
The best thing for steady use is
Mulsifled cocoanut oil shampoo
(which is pure and greaseless), and
is better than anything else you can
One or two teaspoonfuls will
cleanse the hair and scalp thor
oughly. Simply moisten the hair
with water and rub it in. It makes
an abundance of rich, creamy lath
er. which rinses out easily, remov
ing every particle of dust, dirt, dan
druff and excessive oil. The hair
dries quickly and evenly, and it
leaves the scalp soft, and the hair
fine and silky, bright, lustrous,
fluffy and easy to manage.
You can get Mulsifled cocoanut
oil shampoo at any pharmacy; it's
very cheap, and a few ounces will
supply every member of the family
for months.

r ~ ~ y |

Forest Hills, L. 1., Kept. s.—Califor
nia is again supreme as the home of
the world's greatest tennis p!a> er for
the season of 1919. On the courts of
West Side Club here yesterday Wil
liam M. Johnsson, of San Francisco,
defeated William T Tilden, 2nd, of
Philadelphia, in straight sets in the
final match for the national turf !
singles championship.
In eliminating the towering rhila- !
delphian by the score of 6-4, 6-1, 6-3,
Johnston placed himself upon a ten
nis pinnacle seldom reached by
racquet masters. With Til-len he was ;
the sole survivor of 128 players who •
began the struggle for the title on j
August 25. This field contained the i
famous Australian team, winners of I
the English championships, at Wim- i
blcJon, s well as American players j
conquerors in the A. E. F. tourna
ments abroad. Thus Johnston's vic
tory this afternoon stamps him un
questionably as the best tenni- player
competing in the game in any part, i
of the world this year.
The new champion in winning his |
latest honors played fully up to the i
high stanJard necessary to clinch |
such an honor. It. is doubtful if|
Johnston or any other tennis star has
ever shown a better all-arouncl game
from both the standpoint of stroking
and court strategy. This, too, In the
