On . April IS, the date of his
appointment, there was standing
. against, hs books $581.13 over

as $130 for baling .hay, checked
out of the-August account; a bill
cf $266 for six' months ..medical
attentions, hospital service - and
d ental fees. These bills have -all
been met, and the limits of the
budget not- reached.
During January there were 157

Since April 15 Superintendent

turned and no adverse reports

about 14 months on the average,

Ii keeping their- records clear,
r jperintendent Gilbert said. C i
Beginning -in February the
cumber of boys, has decreased
from 166 -to 123 at present. This
ii due partly to paroles and part
ly to the fact that , during the
spring and (summer months boys
are allowed more freedom and
Uay less " hookey from "school.
The- number of the honor roll has
Increased from 37 In January to
13 ia June.

.'obody Can Tell When You
Darken Gray, Paded Hair
With Sage Tea
-Grandmother ' kept her hair
beautifully darkened. - glossy and
attractive with, a : brew of Sage
Tea and Sulphur. Whenever her
hair took on that dull,, faded or
itreaked appearance, this simple
mixture was applied with won
derful effect. By asking at any
drug store for "Wyeth's Sage and
Sulphur Compound,", you will get
a large bottle of this old-time rec
ipe, improved by the addition of
ether ingredients, all ready - to
use, at very little cost. This sim
ile mixture can be depended upon
to restore natural color and beauf
- ty to the hair.'. .-"
A well-known downtown diW
.ist says everybody uses Wyeth's
.'age and Sulphur Compound now
lecause it darkens so naturally
-si evenly that nobody can tell
it has been applied It's so easy
t a use, too. You simply dampen
a comb or soft brush and draw it
--.rough tyour hair, taking one
trand at a time,; By morning the
ray hair disappears; - after an
ther application or two, it is re-
red to its natural color and
' rlossy soft and beautiful.

By Zane Grey. .
Filmed in the least Civilized spot
iiMthe United- States telling a' story
of grim . war among cattlenjen
whlch'had remained secret for
nearly 4J) years, Zane Grey's "To
the Last Man" is said to be one of
the most dramatic western photo
dramas ever offered.
h "This Paramount picture," says
Zane Grey, "is not the colorful
story of my own imagination. It
is, what actually happened in the
Toato Basin, Arizona, in the late
e'ghties when rival factions of cat
tlemen and sheepmen fought out
a; terrible feud literally 'to the
In making the picture Victor
Fleming, director, took his com
pany across country ranges to lo
cation -200 miles from a railway
station. The last 30 miles of the
journey was made on saddle back.
In. the Tonto Basin today live , the
actual descendants of the original
"last men." Many of these pic
turesque characters took part in
the. mob scenes of the picture.
Many of the scenes were filmed at
the, edge of, the j"Rim," a rocky
promontory rising 1500 feet above
the valley. One of the greatest
moments of the picture is the de
struction by dynamite of the en
tire face of one of the mountains,
the avalanche of rocks, trees, and
dirt being filmed by five cameras.
Thousands of tons or rock tore iip
rees and swept a cascade of bould
ers down the face of the cliff. .
The climax shows the girl and
villain in a deserted cabin, with
the girl "playing her , wits .against
the' discovery of her sweetheart
hid jn-the loft. ,
. Richard Dix plays with an at
tractive reserve, . the more effec
tive because of bis. active role. It
Is a Rood demonstration of his ver
satility as an actor. Lois Wilson
is convincing in a "ranchwoman
role that calls chiefly for a haugh
ty; family spirit. The casi is fine
ly chosen with Noah Beery, Frank
Campeau and Robert Edeson In
prominent parts. - "The Last Man"

The Paramount picture, "To the
Last. Man.' produced under the
