Commissary Stores Polluted.
Improvement of conditions under
Superintendent Clarke's resumption of
authority is noted in the following sec
tion of the bureau report:
"Commissary stores are kept in the
Tbasemt-nt of the administration build
ing. Conditions there are Inexcusable
and should be remedied at once. We
found Urge quantities of cobwebs, dust
and rats. There was undisputed evi
dence of their long and undisturbed
residence. We found stores used
food polluted by their filth, such as
pulverised sugar, macaroni and brick
codfish. When Superintendent Clarke's
attention was called to this unsanitary
condition of the stores he immediately
caused them to be requisitioned and
destroyed.
"A filthy and unwholesome condition
of this nature is a disgrace to the state
of ' Washington and a menace to the
health of the Institution's population.
It is another argument for the replace
ment of an antiquated building by on
new and modern. Some action should
be taken at once to provide a sanitary,
rat-proof commissary for the storage
of foodstuffs.
Even Inspection Nen-Iected.
While bureau of inspection examtna
tion has been prevented for several
years by lack of the necessary appro
priation, the state board of control hat
been responsible for- the care of state
Institutions, but the bureau report now
made reveals an absence of Inspection
by the board itself into living condi
tions at the school for the deaf, which
is rated among the more important of
the state's educational undertakings.
The report further notes neglect of
the five acres of orchard, with comment
it If these trees were under super
vision of any of the state hospital
beads they could shortly be made to
produce revenue.
The school poultry plant was found
to be pest-ridden and unsanitary and
showing a loss as operated, as the
school had expended more than $600
during the biennium for eggs and
poultry, when the plant should have
produced more of such food than the
School could use.

ADAPTED from Eugene Walter's
famous stage play, "Nancy Lee,"
the screen drama. "The Way of a
Woman," now showing at the Liberty
theater, leads its star. Norma Tal
madge, to new heights of artistic
achievement- As Nancy Lee ehe por
trays the role of a proud southern girl
stifled by traditions who sacrifices her
all In an endeavor to recoup the family
fortunes for her mother and sister.
The story is this: Nancy Lee, the
beautiful young daughter of the aris
tocratic but poverty-stricken Lee fam
ily of Virginia. Is weary of the empty
family pride which keeps them all In
want and which has forced her to com
ply with her father's request to give up
Anthony Weir, the man she loves, be
cause his social standing is considered
not good enough" for her. She mar
ries a rich bounder from New York, in
the hope that she can thus extend
inanciai aid to her mother and sister.
Once in the metropolis she learns,' how
ever, that her husband is living be-
ond his means, and when her mother
falls serious ill and needs monetary
assistance, she is forced to borrow the
money from the young nephew of An-
hony Weir. Her husband dies and
leaves her almost penniless; . at the
same time, young Weir is threatened
with imprisonment because he had
tolen the money he gave her. She
makes every sacrifice, material and
pirituai. and finally comes into her
wn. "The way of a woman," with its
bnegation and large-heartedness.
finally convinces Anthony Weir of the
treasure he has In her love, and "they
live happily ever after."
At the Strand.
Seldom do photoplays give the diver
sified setting that does "The Little
Brother of the Rich." starring Frank
Mayo and Katherine Adams, which
opened yesterday at the Strand theater.
The plot carries the action of the play
through years of college, through yeirs
of small-town life, through a stage ca
reer and through a society dissipation.
"The Little Brother of the Rich,"
adapted from the stage success of that
name, gives to the screen wonderful
opportunities that have been made the
most of. The picture tells the story
of a Yale youth who spends his sum
mer vacations in a small Indiana town
and in the companionship of a pretty
girl. During his senior year at college
she comes to New Haven to attend the
"prom" and there she realizes the
chasm that exists between herself and
his wealthy, blase friends. As a result
of her visit at Yale she returns home
to think and, after much thought, to
enter upon a stage career, which ter
minates in a proverbial Broadway suc
cess. Then, when she has won suc
cess from the world at large, such as
her former lover had once claimed in
his small college world, the -boyr re
turns. He returns to her alter a lire
spent among friends .of wealth, among
whom- he has not quite been able to
keep pace. How he is received and
what fate awaits for "Sylvia" form the
climax of this interesting play.
One of the most fascinating scenes
of the picture is a polo match. A foot
ball game, in which huge grandstands
are filled to overflowing, is also given
Miss Adams has a charm In this pic
ture caused chiefly by her evident sin
cerity and her simple portrayal.

The third of the series of featurettea
produced by Judge Brown bears the
title of "Gum Drops and Overalls." The
success of the two previous releases,
"Shift the Gear Freck" and "Demand of
Dugan," has encouraged Judge Brown
to enlarge his studio facilities so that it
is quite probable that the number of his
productions will be increased. In "Gum
Drops and Overalls" he has taken an
experience of hie while presiding over
the juvenile court in Salt Lake City and
given it a motion picture setting in
which the eternal boy is made the star.
