In making the statement some timo
ago in regaril to the quality of film
plays shown upon the screen in this
theatre that the p'.ays then Hhown were
above criticism but that "Better ones
were to follow," is surely illustrated in
"Behind the Scenes," featuring '"Lit
tle Mary Pickford," shown here yester
day and repeated to-day. Never has a
play been better presented, never has
a "Purity of Heart and Conscience"
been 'better illustrated so that those
who will may understand than as por
trayed by Mary Puller iu ".Behind the
Scenes." To say the least it is one of
rhe most beautiful portrayals of char
acter ever thrown upon tihe screen.
Wednesday and Thursday another
Paramount program will be sliown, fea
turing David Higgins in "His Last
Dollar," will be exhibited. This play
is absorbing from start to finish and
appeals to all the emotions to whii;h
the human mind is subject, giving the
play a variety of appeal that is certain
to insure a wide and remarkaible fol
lowing. Adv."

Paddled Away in a Coffin
Several men have succeeded in es
caping from Devil's island, where Cap
tain Dreyfus was confined. One bold
prisoner escaped from his cell during a
dark nipi'it aud forced his way into a
shed where coffins were made. Select
ing a large shell, he nailed the lid down
in such a way that a hole was left big
enough for him to crawl into. Then he
raided a storehouse and stole a supply
of food, which he placed inside the
coffin. His next proceeding was to
drag the coffin and its contents down to
the water's edge. Reaching it in safe
ty, he launched his sepulchral vessel,
crawled into it and paddled away by
means of his hands. Devil's island
never saw him again.

claarly shown when I had the third
judge bill passed in 1903 and such
farts were presented as led to the pas
sage of the bill without virtually any
opposition. Governor T'ennyptwker ve
toed the bill oa» tho ground that there
■was no necessity for a third judge
•here, but there may haw been other
reasons. This court is overworked and
cases argued a year ago are not yet de
cided, for the reason that the court hat
i too much business.
"Four weeks erf tho year ar« takes
up by both judges at Quarter Sessions
court, when 0110 of tho judges ought tfl
be devoting that time to writing opin
ions. The work of the Dauphia county
< ourt is constantly being interrupted by
Btate business. Every year now depart
ments are added to the Stato adminis
tration and in some way additioaal
business is added to the Ttauphin coun
ty court. The latest is the taking o1
appeals from the Public Service Com
■mission to the local court. We already
had state tax cases, election and nomi
nation cases, and a hundred and on«
other matters from the c&pitol to en
gage the attention of our court. It
certainly is time to have a third judge,
for there is need foT him."
John Fox Weiss, former distract at
torney, favors a third judge for the
Dauphin county bench. "Ym, I am in
favor of R third judge," .* Mr.
Weiss, "because I believe he is needed.
I think our two judge* have more work
to do than any two judges in the Com
monwealth, and there should be a third
judge here." •
"Too Much Work for Two Judges"
Charles C. St rah, of the Board oi
Law Examiners, said a third judge is
necessary for quicker dispatch of busi
ness in this court and to relieve the
present judges.
"We have needed a third judge here
for some time," said Mr. Strofo. "Out
two judges have too muc.h to do with
all of the state work in addition to the
eountv work. There should be a third
W. ft. 6nyder said: "I think a third
judge is badly needed. The cowrt here
has been overcrowded with work and
yet in face of the faot that they da
work hard they are behind. To my
mind it is a grand opportunity to re
i lieve them.''
Colonel Fred M. Ott, Solicitor of
Dauphin county, said: "There can be
but one opinion aod that is brierf. The
judges here are overburdened with
work. The necessity for a third judge
never before was so apparent aa at the
present time."
' 'I always have felt the necessity for
a third judge in Dauphin county," said
Assistant District Attorney Frank B.
Wickersham. "There is much need fot
another jurist here especially in view of
the fact that Judges Kun-kel and Mc-
Carroll now are overwwi-ked and should
have relief. To my mind the fact that
cases now are piling in on our judge;
