In spite of the heavy rain, there War ft fair attendance at Hayward'e Picture?, Akaroa, on Anniversary night. The programme was an excellent one, the film entitled " Black Blood" being especially worthy of mention. The film tells the story of (he cvii machinations of a Hindu doctor, who, falling in love with his English friend's wife, rouses Heaven and Earth to get her in his power. The man's horrible passions and bis duplicity were well portrayed, and the spectator feels thankful that the beautiful white woman, who is quite
innjepnt of any attempt to fascinate the Hindu, escapes from his clutches and pnjoys happiness with ber beloved hu-band. " Chased by Blood, bounds " was a good comic, in which ths old favourite Bunny took a leading part. •' Conscience," Australian Gnz-tte, " Holland from Dawn to Sunset," " The Kid from Arizona," " Old City of Carcassonne " and "The Ever Smiling Lady " were other films.
