OWEN CASE GOES TO JURY TODAY

The case of the state against Charles Owen on a charge of “aiding and abetting a bank cashier to injure and defraud a bank” proceeded quietly yesterday; two witnesses in addition to W. H. Johnson, former cashier of the Bank of Jacksonville, being called by the state.

At the close of the afternoon session of the court Owen occupied the witness stand and was testifying in his own behalf. It is expected that the closing arguments will be made today and that the case will go to the jury before the close of the afternoon session of the court.

There is a great preponderance of technical evidence involved in this case and it is supposed that the closing arguments bringing the salient points in the case to the attention of the jury will have more than the usual influence in the determination of the verdict.

THE SCREEN

Mary Pickford at Page

Mary Pickford, America’s sweetheart, will appear at the Page theatre today, tomorrow and Monday in “Through the Back Door,” an original photoplay be Marion Fairfax. This picture permits the favorite star to flash her familiar talent. She is the young girl again — the young girl with curls and a million dollar smile. The picture is a fragrant romance which travels over a score of years and finds expression in Europe and America. The picture sends out flashes of fine sentiment and appealing humor and is perfectly acted.

Salvation Nell at Rialto

“Salvation Nell,” the famous stage play in which Mrs. Fiske achieved such great success, has been adapted to the screen with pretty Pauline Stark in the title role, and will be the feature attraction on the bill at the Rialto theatre for a three days showing beginning with tomorrow’s matinee.

The story of a girl brought up in the slums, but who finally finds the right road through the Salvation Army. For the production one of the finest sets ever used for picture work was built. A full sized street car was constructed, street cars installed, sidewalks laid and paving put down. All for a few scenes, but these scenes were of vital importance.
