Modern Oliver Twist Story Is Film

Ruth Stonehouse, the butterfly star
who romped Into the hearts of photo
play fans months ago in a series of
fascinating romance plays, features in
a modern Oliver Twist story in "The
Edge of the Law," which la the film

Strand Theater yesterday afternoon.
Miss Stonehouse first appears in dis
guise as a boy, compelled to work as a
pickpocket by the pawnbroker who
controls her like a modern Fagln.
Opportunity offers and her quick
wits enable her to escape and, eventu

her benefactor from a blackmailer. She
leads a detective a chase that supplies
an abundance of exciting comedy in
the play. And, of course, there Is the

The vaudeville bill runs the gamut of

comedian with a series of "nut" songs,
to the Superba Duo, a pair of gymnastic
comedians with some crashing knock
about feats. They end their act with a
barrel - jumping feature that is a
Gertrude Powell, pretty as yellow
sunshine and roses and, by the way,
formerly with the Douglas Fairbanks
company in the motion pictures, has a
singing act that is attractive, and the

"class" and who have some stunning
character singing offerings.
GARDENERS GET BUSY

This is the advice of Assistant Food
Administrator W. K. Newell, who says
no time should be lost In beginning
the work of making the ground ready.
"Old vines, weedsand rubbish should
be cleaned up Immediately," said Mr.
Newell last night, "and if the weeds
are full of seeds they should be burned;
if not, they should be spaded under
with the old vines to rot and enrich
the soil. If stable manure is obtaina
ble, apply this and then plow or spade
the land. Following this, sow rye seed
at the proportion of 40 pounds to the
acre, which would be about five pounds
to the ordinary city lot. This seed
can be harrowed or raked under, and
it will grow during tho Winter and
produce much valuable plant food by
Spring. If sown now it will be six or
eight inches high in the Spring, when
it can be spaded under and will put
the soil in splendid condition mechan
ically as well as adding fertility.
"The heavy clay soils need this par
ticularly. If this preparation is made
gardening next Spring will be very
much easier and the crops will not dry
out so badly. If rye seed cannot be
had, wheat or oats mixed with a little
vetch will do, but rye is best. If any
new gardening grounds are to be pre
pared, by all means this work should
be done at once."

NEW BILL AT HIPPODROME IS ALL
Features Include Eddie Tanner In
"When We- Grow Up" and Pathe
It would require a man with the wis
dom of Solomon to place the honors
where they properly belong on the new
bill which opened at the Hippodrome
yesterday afternoon. Each act is in a
class by itself and no two are alike.
Eddie Tanner and company return to
Portland for four days, after an ab

sketch played at the Empress three
seasons ago and the original cast Is

a Pathe photoplay, which depicts the
terrible war being waged in Europe,

Mobilizing for the War
Your Uncle Sam is getting ready to fight.
All over the country, hundreds of thousands of artisans are busy with
war preparations. Great warships are sliding off the ways; navy-yards
and arsenals are working night and day; great mobilization camps are
springing up as if by magic; everywhere the vast resources of the Nation
are being gathered together for war.
All over the Bell telephone system, thousands of employes are busily
engaged in all branches of telephone activity, to keep pace with the extraor
dinary telephone needs of the Nation. Everywhere poles are being set and
wires strung, central office equipment increased, new long-distance lines
constructed between important points and telephone facilities increased.
The greater and more varied the Government's war activities become,
the greater will be the demands upon the Bell system for service. With the
increased Government requirements, there will be greater demands for
The scarcity of material and labor have set definite limits to the amount
of new construction, and the needs of the individual must be subordinated
to those of the Nation.
It is going to be harder to supply new telephones, extension telephones
and to put up wire to new telephone stations, because of the vast amount of
telephone equipment devoted to the service of the Government, and because
the Bell organization has contributed heavily to the draft, and many of our
technically trained men have voluntarily joined the colors.
When you use the telephone, we ask you to remember the patriotic
service we are rendering the Government, the extraordinary conditions we
are facing, and to help us maintain good service by a conservative use of
your telephone and equipment.
