MYSTERIES OF MYRA LOOKS LIKE WINNER
The first chapter of the new Wharton serial, "The Mysteries of Myra,"was presented before capacity audiences at both the Lyceum and the Star theaters last night, and judged by the favorable comment heard on all sides, the picture promises to become as popular as "The Exploits Of Elaine" series.
The three reels last night dealt with the operations of a band of "devil-worshippers," who through the use of occult power are seeking the destruction of Myra Maynard, an eighteen-year old girl whose two sisters have already died under strange circumstances.
While in a trance Myra is to kill herself with a dagger. About the time she raises the dagger to strike, Dr. Alden Payson, a student of psychic mysteries arrives and saves her. Miss Jean Sothern is charming as Myra and Howard Estabrook won honors as the doctor. Allen Murnane also plays an important role, while Mrs. Bessie Wharton is seen as Myra's mother.
