today Is one most unique in mo

Gale is the daughter of a rev
enue officer, living with her fath
er on a Florida orange planta
tion. Next door lives Roger Wain
right, a wealthy New' York man,
played by David Powell, who .has
bought this neighboring planta
tion for the purpose of being near
Gale, whom he loves.' 'Things
progress more or less smoothly
between the two until after a wild
night spent at a nearby inn. Wain
right finds himself a fugitive, ac
cused of the murder of Gale's fa
ther who had-conducted a raid on
the resort that evening. ,
But Gale believes in Roger, who
asserts his Innocence of the crlma
She aids him to escape, but later,
when she learns the tacts, she
gives chase and finds him In his
home. Of fleers" of - the law are
close behind, and the girl has to
rb some quick thinking; It Is a
ease of being loyal . to . her dead
father or protecting the man she
loves.- Choosing the latter. Gale
determines, to shield her sweet
heart. With the arrival of the
officers comes the : climax of the
production a climax that has
much, to do with ! making "Fog
Bound" a picture different from
anyt&lng you have yet seen.
This is an Irvin Willat produc
tion. Including in the east of sup

"The Spoilers," Jesse D. Hamp
ton's screen production - of Rex
Beach's celebrated i novel of t the
Klondike, which, was presented at
the Oregon theatre Friday, is an
immense picture. When Sellg
filmed this red-blooded romance
of Alaska's gold rush a decade ago
it was regarded as the greatest
ohotoplay ; of Its day. ' But this
1923 version is assuredly : one of
the most spectacular, and exciting
pictures ever made.
A remarkable east la seen in the
picture with Milton Sills as the
manly hero; Anna Q. Nllsson as
Cherry Malotte. the loyal dance
ball queen; Barbara Bedford a
pretty brunette a? Helen Chester,
the innocent heroine;. Noah Beery
as McNamara, the crooked but
courageous politician; Mitchell
Lewis as Marshal Voorhees, afraid
of no man ; that walked ; Robert
Edeson, as the rough-and:ready
Joe Dextry, mine owner and'ready
to face. death for his rights; Sam
de Grasse as the cowardly Judc
Stillman; Robert McKlra ka
Struve, the crooked lawyer; Fprd
Sterling; Rockllffe Fellowes, Loji
Ise Farenda, Gordon Russell, Wal
lace. McDonald and numerous, oth
er players well known for tbelr
ability to act Western roles.
It isn't this superb cast and its
skillful acting: which make "The
Spoilers" euch thrilling entertain
ment. If a the story. Rex Beach
described at first-hand the fever
ish fight for gold In the Klondike
when, the sands of the Yukon sud
denly turned yellow. His account
of how the miners were despoiled
of some of their richest properties
by corrupt politicians is an histor
ic event. Beach crammed bis dot
el with conflict, romance and sus
pense and this Director Lambert
Hlllyer has siillfully portrayed on

thanks to Mrs. Wallace Reid for
giving to civilization her much
discussed anti-narcotic production
"Human Wreckage" ? which . was
shown for the first time to Salem
audiences Friday night at the
Grand theatre and which , will be
the attraction for four days only. :
- By .all odds tbe most predom
inate feature of "Human Wreck
age Is the sincerity of Mrs. Reid
This courageous little woman who
has lust come through an ordeal
of nerve shattering . terror has
begun an unremitting campaign
to check the swiftly spreading tide
of dope addiction which is gradu
ally encompassing -the entire
world.; "Human Wreckage", Is
merely her. first step. And It is a
step well taken. The photoplay
is not one of sordid tendencies. ' It
is entertainment. -powerful en
tertainment, perhapr-but how,
one asks, would it have been oth
erwise possible to drive home to
humanity the real story of drug
addiction? - ,
"Human Wreckage" is in na
sense biographical. It does ! not
depict the troubles of Mrs.- Reid or
the sufferings of her. lam en ted
husbandl It does not portray any
eide r of tbe ; all-too-well-known
Btory of , the, tragedy of .Wallace
Reid. -
The story has - to do with the
brave struggle of a famous attor
ney to fight off the dread habit
of addiction, an attorney who sue
cumbs to-the affliction and then.
after falling as low as human-mor
tal can fall, succeeds i by almost
superhuman efforts in ridding
bimself of tbe disease. As the at
epic fight in which Glennister and
McNamara - settle their scores.
Their . tussle is one of the very
best rough and ' tumble fights of
the screen. - It you enjoy a red
blooded exciting film; with a real
story, don't miss "The Spoilers."

with - the Double Brain" , has j re
turned to the. theatre with his
mathematical Marvels and feats
of ambidexterity, having been , re
engaged by the ' management - la

If yea live to be cne hundred years old
you'll never forget this gripping:, smashing,
thrilling production that has taken the en

career. . It is safe to say that even

leading role In Channlng Pollock's
"The Fool," the reigning New

Scene upon scene reveals with
towering drama . the fight McFar
land makes to break himself of
the habit of addiction. His wife,
impersonated with exquisite path
os by Mrs. Reid, stands heroically
by his side throughout, succeeding
finally in 'rescuing bim from tbe
grip of the dread opiates that
were steadily sending him to .his
doom. - -' ?-! ' '
The performance of Bessie Love
aiso touches a lorty peak of ar
tistry. As tbe little addict moth

a tragedienne of. terrific power

the cloak of froth with. which she
has enveloped herself in many in
ferior roles In the past- Her play
Ing, 'Indeed. Is one of tbe 1 most
happy and significant -features of
this most unusual photoplay. "
Undoubtedly "Human Wreck
age will; achieve. Its purpose. It
will go rlngjng down the corridors
of time as a monumental warn
ing to generations of the future.
Congratulations may be showered
on all who took part, not forgett
ing Mr. C. Gardner Sullivan, who
wrote the human story, end M

who gave it a compelling interpre
