INCE COMPANY FILMING STORY


The Thomas H. Ince company of 30 movie players, headed by the great William S. Hart, which arrived in this city from Los Angeles Saturday, is quartered at Felton, where they are putting on a thrilling western drama with all the dash and vim that characterizes such plays. Cliff Smith, who was here last year with an Ince company, is a co-director with Hart. The pictures are being taken around Felton, at the log cabin settlement beyond, and along the Big Tree road, where stage hold-ups and chases by the posses are the big events. The company brought along a dozen rough riders to put on this thrilling work.
