"WITH THE LAW'
The New York Tribune has the fol
lowing as a part of their criticism of
Vitagraph's film version of "Within
the Law," coming to the Grand next
Monday and Tuesday:
" 'Within the Law,' which had its
screen premiere at the Broadway the
atre last night, involuntarily sets itself
the task of proving that the silent
drama is a better medium for telling
a story than the Spoken drama.
"Every one in the audience was
bound to contrast the screen version
witht the play, and if the rest of the
audience agreed with the writer, they
decided in favor of the silent drama.
"It is possible on the screen to
breach that gap which came between
the time when Mary Turner left hei
employer's office, a convicted thief,
and the time she appeared, resplen
dent, in her own home, three years
later. In the play the events were,
of necessity, only talked about, and
in the, picture they form some of -. the
most interesting scenes.
Mary's release from prison, her sub
sequent search for honest employ
ment, her attempted suicide, from
which she is saved by Joe Garson, and
her first dishonest deal with a land
agent, which nets her $30,000, and
is still within' the law, make wonder
ful material for the scenario writer.
Alice Joyce is charming as. Mary
Turner, and in many of her scenes
she is not unlike Janet Cowl, who
created the part. But in the scenes
where she denounces her employer,
who has sent her to prison, her man
ner suggests despair rather than an
ger or vindictiveness. She is not a
self-reliant Mary Turner, for, although
she is the' brains of the combination,
she does not seem really tb enter into
the spirit of the wrongdoing.
RAPID CHANGES IN APPAREL.
Wearing apparel changes mighty
fast during the progress of "The Fight
ing Grin," coming to the Grand the
atre tomorrow with Franklyn Farnum,
the star of this Bluebird farce-comedy.
Theng is the hero, a bandit, a tramp
and a clergyman engaging in forced.
exchanges of raiment under the most
ridiculous circumstances. In these
compulsory disguises the tramp be
comes a well-fed guest of honor; the
bandit turns clergyman and performs
a "marriage"; the hero is forced to
hide behind hedges and underbrush
while the girl he loves has visions of
her ideal gone mad; the clergyman1 be
comes a prisoner and the tangle is
not raveled out until' five acts of hila
rious farce comes to a "surprise fin
ish" in a climax of astonishing revela
tions. The rivalry for the hand of a
girl who lets duty govern iter decis
ions, the enmity that has long 'existed
between two staid old business men
and the determination or a venture
some chap to win a $10,000 bet are
undercurrents that keep the complica
tions stirring and the comedy situa
tions multiplying. "The Fighting
Grin" promises great fun for the

NEW SOCIAL LECTURE LEAGUE
"It reads like a story book," is the way one ef America's most happily
married society leaders opened the subject of her remarks on Hair Cul
ture at the first annual lecture of her newly inaugurated Course on Timely
Topics at her home oa the Hudson Just outside of New York city.
"I have been a great outdoor enthusiast all my life and I make it a rule
to do without my hat whenever possible, both in the daytime as welt as
everiing. Jack, my husband, some years ago remarked that I would have to
probably give up my running about bareheaded now that I was getting a
bit gray. But I am not to be outdone simply by a few or many gray hairs.
I went right to the most reliable authority I could get on the subject. The
result was I avoided putting a lot of harmful dyes on my hair and I began
using a Hair Color Restorer called Q-Ban and in no time Jack had to con
fess he didn'Jt understand how my hair got so beautiful. Was I dressing it
different, or what? N
"You may rest assured I haven't told him anything about" it, although
he very often remarks my hair certainly does look fine. Q-Ban is - our
little secret." .
