A company of movie players of the American Film Manufacturing Company, headed by the popular and attractive Mary Miles Minter, arrived in this city yesterday from Santa Barbara. There were 16 players. A southern story is being filmed and scenes are to be taken up the San Lorenzo Valley, centering around Ben Lomond, to which place the players went yesterday afternoon, some by auto and some by train. Work will commence without delay.

The players will stop for a time at Ben Lomond and the people of this resort will be greatly interested in the work.
