Monday, January 15th
A little girl with an abnormal imagination pictures herself in strange situations and isn't backward in telling about them. Of course she decieves no one and everybody knows her to be an inveterate little liar. She gets into a lot of trouble, as a matter of fact. The story closes with a smashing climax.

Many of the scenes of this picture were taken in the pine woods of Maine and on the Penobscot river. Country and city life are contrasted. A gigantic log-jam is shown together with the details of shipbuilding. The love story is dramatic.
Wednesday, January 17th
It's a drama, dealing with new York and the South African diamond fields. The story has to do with a woman who was wedded to a swindling stock-broker whose rum is eventually accomplished and he commits (?) suicide. His wife marries the man she really loves when lo! her first husband appears.
Thursday, January 18th
Contrasts of vice and virtue, wealth and poverty are to be found in this picture. The working of a great candy factory is shown and with the poverty of the employees is shown the luxury of the home of the owner. Children figure in a great scene where the tenement kiddies do justice to a banquet.
