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.
