It is suggested that to conserve
clothing and give the factories a
chance to make such things as
are needed for war purposes,
that women wear their dresses
as long as they are decent.
While this would not be very
long under the present style
whifh is somewhat of the kill
variety, it ia still a good and sen
sible suggestion. However it
will not be folloved, for a
woman out of style is a woman
out of the world. The American
women can be depended upon to
make any sacrifice necessary to
the winning of the war except
standing for any interference
with their dress. Hunger and
deprivation will be borne cheer
fully but if the American women
must eat little and not very
often, she can be depended on to
have that little served with
some kind of color scheme and
flowers on the table along with
napkins. She draws the line at
being out of style. She may
wear cheap stuffs in her gown,
but they will have to be rut
rirht and draped as Dame

A kind of artistic achievement
easy for the film, but impossible
for the "indoor drama" is illus
trated by the Ford's theatre
scene in "The Birth of a Na
tion" The old fashioned drama has
long attempted to represent a
stage within a stage, and some
of such representations have
been rather realistic.
But in the film scene showing
the assassination of PresidentLin-
coin, one sees not only the com
plete stage of Ford's theatre in
April 1865 but also the auditorium
of the theatre, the audience and
the historical figures in the boxes.
Laura Keene is playing "Our
American Cousin", assisted by
E. A. Sothern in the role of
Lord Dundreary. They are
startled out of their mimic parts
by the shot that Wilkes Booth
fire J. The auaience has risen to
its feet as the shot is heard and
cranes forward in a semi-panic
to gaze at the great statesman
whose head has fallen back in
the stage box and at the assassin
Booth who is leaping from the
box to the stage and whose spur
catches in the box drapery as he
jumps, causing him to break his
leg. This sort of historical real
ism has never been achieved be
fore. It is part of what ia meant
by the so-called "new art" for
which D. W. Griffith is respon
Spectators gaze at the scene
with fascinated horror. It is too
terrible, too awesome for ap
plause, yet not a spectator but
feels that in this impressive ren
dition Mr. Griffith has surpassed
the greatest previous art achieve
ments of the film drama.
This is but one of the 50OO
scenes of this world s iamous
spectacle, which will be shown
matinee at 2:30 and evening at 8,
at the Isis on Sunday, July 22.
A splendid three hour, special
ly adapted musical score, played
by the organization's own direc
tor accompanies the production.
The matinee prices are 50 cents
for adults and 25 cents for chil
dren. Evening: 75 cents for
adults and 50 cents for children.

He Cannot Read His Tombstone When He's Dead
If with pleasure you are viewing Hny work a man ia doing;
If you like him or you love him, tell him now;
Don't withhold your approbation till the parson makes oration,
And he liea with snowy lilies o'er his brow;
lor no matter how you shout it, he won't really care about it;
lie won't know how many teardrops you have shed;
If you think some praise is due him, now'B the time to slip it to him,
For he cannot read his tombstone when he'i dead.
More than fame and more than money is the comment kind and sunny
And the hearty, warm approval of a friend;
For it gives to life a savor, and it makes you atronger, braver,
And it givce you heart and spirit to the end;
If he earns your praise -bestow it; if you like him, let him know it;
Let the words of true encourageaicnt be said;
Do not wait till life is over and he's underneath the clover.
For he cannot read his tombstone when he'a dead.

question of the hour is, "where to
get good, satisfying eats at

It is plainly in evidence in every

Fresh, Pure,
And the smiles of many satisfied customers ia the
best of proof that we make good on every claim.
