The Pic­ture House

A PIC­TURE-PLAY of a very high or­der will be shown at the be­gin­ning of the week namely: Des­tiny’s Toy.

The cast is a strong one, and Louise Huff ap­pears to the high­est ad­van­tage as Nan. From the syn­op­sis we glean that the steamer in which a banker has sent his wife and child abroad goes down in a se­vere storm.

In­quiries from the three known sur­vivors bring only bad news to the de­spair­ing man. The child, how­ever, has been cast ashore and lives.

The poor waif grows up a child of na­ture, as in­no­cent of the ways of the world at 20 as she was at five.

On the death of her hardy fish­er­man pro­tec­tor she goes to a city and falls into the hands of a gang of thieves.

All the episodes lead­ing up to how she comes to be re­stored to the fa­ther, who had mourned her as dead, are thrillingly de­picted. A se­ries of other good lines are also an­nounced.
