"Witchcraft" is the title of the photo drama by Dr. Ralston R. Reed, and will be seen at the Hyburn on November 14 and 15 with the brilliant Lasky star, Fannie Ward, in the leading role. Prof. V. O. Freeburg, the head of the Columbia University class in photodramatics, conducted this contest under the auspices of the Jesse L. Lasky Feature Play Company. Mr. William C. DeMille and Hector Turnbull, of the dramatic department of the Lasky copany, and several others familiar with photodramatic requirements were selected as judges. The scores of manuscripts were read by each judge and then classed as to their worth. After all the judges had read the scenarios, the winner was selected. Strang to say, Dr. Reed's story was marked No. 1 by all the judges.
Until the Goveror's proclamation put an ed to the folly, hundreds of innocent people suffered persecution in the New England colonies in 1692-3 fro the horrible delusion of witchcraft.

"WITCHCRAFT" -- Continued
Suzette and her mother, Hugenot refugees, take up their residence in one of these colonies. The mother falls ill and Suzette enlists the services of Nokomis, an Indian, to assist her. Nokomis is considered a witch ad Suzette's mother's delirium strengthens the suspicion.
Suzette meets Richard Wayne, ward of the town miser, Makepeace Struble. He accompanies her to her home and is seen by old Struble who is very angry, desiring the girl for himself. Struble sends Wayne out of the village ostensibly to join the Governor's staff, but in reality to get him out of the way that he may marry Suzette. He succeeds in convincing Suzette that the only way she can save her mother from persucution as a witch is to arry him, and horrified though she is by the idea, she consents. Just after the wedding ceremony, Suzette's mother dies. Nokomis gives the girl a talisman telling her it will make her every wish come true.
Upon his return, Captain Wayne is thunderstruck that Struble has married Suzette, and believinng the old man's money her only motive, fails to show her proper respect. He is surprised at Suzette's dignified rebuff, realizes his great love for her and desices to go away -- forever.
Struble is brutal to his young wife, and with the talisman in her hand, she tells hi he would be better dead. Shortly afterwards Struble is taken ill. Suzette learns from Nokomis that the Indians are planning a mutiny and hurries to obtain the assistance of Captin Wayne. In the meantime the old man does accusing Suzette of having cursed him, and when Suzette returns she is found guilty of witchcraft and sentences to be hanged. Wayne and his men save the colony and he succeeds in reaching the Goveror who arrives in time to save the innocent girl, and puts an end once and for all to the folly of witchcraft.
Wayne takes Suzette into his arms and away from the old scenes to the new life full of hope for them both.
MAKING ENDS MEET
START NOW AND BE ONE OF OUR REGULAR SAVERS
As the title indicates, the exchanging of affectionate caresses between the parties of the first, or stellar, parts forms a very important incident in the story. The first kiss, which is the forerunnof of many others, is stolen at a masked ball. Owen Moore, who has stolen it, is so captiated by the sweetness and warmth thereof that he sets out to find the kissee, who escaped after the brief instant of bliss.
In his fervish effort to diplicate the exact application which so thrilled him, he entices every girl who even remotely resembles his first victim to the far corners of the garden and the conservatory where he makes bold to taste the nectar of her lips.
A hydroplane plays an important role in the plot as it is by means of this machine that Moore rescues Miss Courtot after she has been wrongfully assuced of theft. There is a society villain who has worked his way into the good graces of Moore's grandmother for the sake of robbing her, and when he is caught in a tight corner he has little difficulty in shifting the suspicion upon innocet Miss Courtot. Their names are Jean and Luise in the story ad they are both of French parentage. He is a aviator in America on a furlough and she is his grandmother's private secretary.
When he discovers that the detectives are pursuing her and are going to arrest the girl for acrime of which he knows her to be innocent, he literally flies to her rescue and picks her up in the hydroplane froma ferry boat. They quarrel in midair and she wrecks the machine in her ecitement by pulling the wrong lever, but neither one is badly injured.
The famous gyroscope aeroplane invented by Lawrence Sperry and now being used by the French and British at the front is used in these aviation scenes which were taken at the new government training station at Amityville, L. I.
