really wonderful production. Every critic declares it is the greatest five-part feature ever produced. Wid Gunning, the best known and
most independent screen critic in the world, lauds this feature in extravagant terms. Be sure to read it.

From an audience appeal viewpoint,
this is without question the greatest
straight dramatic production that I have
seen in many months, and I cannot re-
call anything in the way of straight
drama which is better whenrviewedsfrom
that angle. That is a pretty strong
statement because I have seen every-
thing for the past year and a half, but
I want to go on record regarding this
production as saying that it is a truly
great film.
Most of the credit for this is due
to Joseph Kaufman, the director, al-
though we must not forget Miss Ethel
Clayton and Tom Moore, who gave us
exceptionally human characterizations.
This production is so good that you
do not stop to analyze the fact that it
has no wonderful lighting effects or ex-
ceptionally artistic bits. It registers
through every scene of the six parts
because it is human.
The story is elementary in that the
actual incidents might have been en-
acted in one or two reels of film and
had the same material been in less cap-
able hands, we might have had a very
ordinary production.

This offering is made great by the
humanness of the playing and by the
little touches which have been carefully
worked out and properly placed to build
these characters and make them appeal.
This film is decidedly different and
odd in one way, inasmuch as the sym-
pathy is held with every character. There
is not a wicked "willun" in the piece.
Considering the fact that at this time
the better exhibitorstoverethe entire
country are heeding the cries of their
patrons for films which do not show
the harrowing details of a "vampire's"
perfidy, I know that everywhere in this
country this production will be received
with open arms and will be able to play
return dates to bigger business than is
,enjoyed at the first showing..
It is not very often that I stand on
my hind legs and yell out loud about a
picture, but on the same lines, it is not
very often that I will sit in a projection
room without an audience about to help
make scenes impressive and without any
music, and find myself wiping tears
from my eyes several times during the
production.

This film got me, not once, but sev-
eral times, and in order to be sure
about it, I looked at it a second time
another day and I am ready to insist
that this is one of the most human
offerings we have had in the film busi-
ness.
I am essentially a small-town man and
it so happens that at least eighty per
cent of the film pa*ons of this country
are small-town people. By that I mean
they are community folk. Even in the
larger cities, away from New York City,
the theatre center marks the division of
coummiunities. In these communities peo-
ple live and know one another much
as they do in the small towns.
This story of the struggles of a young
married couple is going to register as
a tremendous success everywhere. The
film is great because we find these young
people doing human things.
We get in the early reels the careful
building of characters which makes you
understand every thought passing in the
minds of these artists. Toward the end
we have some dramatic moments which
are peculiarly gripping, because they are
the result of human mistakes and mis-

understandings, the sort of misunder-
standings which occur a million times
a day in this land of one hundred mil-
lion people.
Mr. Kaufman has given us in this
production one of the best presentations
of lifedas it really is that has ever been
offered. Miss Clayton does some mar-
velously sincere work and the work of
Tom Moore is wonderful because it is
so supremely natural.
Crauford Kent, as the friend of the
family, handled a difficult part with just
the proper balance through every scene.
The supporting cast were beautifully
chosen as to type and the film was kept
distinctively human all the way.
The cast included Bartley McCullum,
Herbert Fortier and others.

The Photoplay Magazine for June has
this to say: "The best photoplay of the
month is a story of unspiced folks whose
lives, I dare say, are much like yours
and mine. It is 'Dollars and the Wo-
man' dramatized from Albert Payson
Terhune's novel, 'Dollars and Cents.'"

Dr. N. S. Hardikar, assistant to
Dean V. H. Vaughan, has as president
of the Hindustan Asociation of Amer-
ica, addressed a communication to
President Wilson, the object of which
is to defeat a provision in the Burnett
immigration bill which excludes In-
dians from the United States.
A number of men prominent here
are understood to have written similar
letters to members of the senate. The
letter, which is being circulated
throughout the country follows in
part:'
"To His Excellency Woodrow Wilson,
the President, United States of
America, Washington, D. C.
"Your Excellency,
"We, the undersigned, most humbly
request your atttntion to the follow-
ing few facts:
"The Burnett Immigration bill,

which was passed in the house, is now
I before the senate. It excludes the
people of India as a whole from entry
into the United States. We feel that
such action on the part of this coun-
try would certainly be opposed to the
traditions of the American people. It
seems an unjust act to exclude a na-
tion in toto. M
"If it is considered to be- a racial
question, we bring to the notice of the
citizens of this country that the Hin-
dus belong to the Caucasian race; they
come from the same Aryan stock as do
the majority of the people of the
United States, which fact has been
proved by the European and Ameri-
can scholars of the day. Most of the
present languages of India are or-
iginated from Sanskrit, which in turn
belongs to the Indo-European branch
of languages.
"If it is an economical and social
problem arising by the influx of the
East Indian laborers, who can not
maintain an American standard of
living in this country, we believe that
an examination will show that the
other provisions of the bill perfectly
safeguard the interests of America and
the American public by excluding the
various undesirable classes.
"Since the year 1820 to the year

1916, just 6,669 immigrants from In-
dia have entered the United States.
This number is 0.02 percent of the
total immigration since that date.
"Particularly we wish to call Your
Excellency's attention to that provi-
sion of the bill which requires the
execution of bonds by all alien stu-
dents and ask you to confirm it with
the Ordinance of the United States of
1787, in which is was declared that
"Religion, morality and knowledge be-
ing necessary to good government and
happiness of mankind, schools and
means of education shall forever be
encouraged.
"We suggest that in behalf of all
the Hindus residing in the United
States, we have deputed Lala Lajpat
Raj, an attorney and political leader
of India, who is now in this country,
as our representative at Washington
to discuss the bill with the honorable
senators.,'

The book is a series of realist

This is a question frequently asked
us. Our answer is "The form which
will satisfy you ten, twenty, thirty
years hence as completely as it does
today."
If a general statement is required,
we would say that fifty-one years' ob-
servation of the practical working out
of insurance convinces us that the
policy which covers the most needs
in the largest number of cases, and
covers them to the greatest satisfac-
tion of the insured, is a policy that
protects the whole. period of the in-
sured's expected career and then be-
comes payable to him for its face val-
ue in cash should he survive that
period.
The premium for such a policy in
The Provident Life and Trust -com-
pany is for the younger ages actually
less than the premium usually charged
for an Ordinary Life policy.
Such a policy can also be written
upon the Twenty Payment Plan, in
which case the premium charged by
the Provident will for the younger
ages be actually less than the premi-
um usually eharged for a Twenty
Payment Life policy.
Not only does this policy give all
the protection of a life policy, but
should the insured survive, it abso-
lutely guarantees the payment of the
policy upon the stipulated date, thus
entirely eliminating any question of
estimate as to when the policy shall
mature.
It is entirely business-like in that
it meets the convenience of the in-
sured as shown by experience, and
when examined from the point of view
of cost, it will be found that the re-
sults are exceedingly advantageous
and attractive.
