5 I DE L. I G H T S OF THE '
t . Elslnor Theater
Two children in an enchanted
garden, listening to the music of a
violin weaving its magic into their
heart and binding them together
forever"; this is the memory that
a boyj and girl cherished through
,lnng. jearsr until they found one
Porter? created this beautiful
heme! a her last and greatest
story. 'The Magic Garden,'! and
tt may be seen on the screen as an
V B. O. release at the Elsinore
April 28 for the last time. The
picture! opens when the boy and
girl met in a place of enchanting
loveliness and there in the glori
ous garden, they pledge their love
Ilofwever, fate decrees that they
must part, but all through the
years .that follow, their Inspiration
is the remembrance of those few
hours and the hope that they may
be reunited again. The girl's part
a played by Margaret Morris who
lnrists the role with an ethereal
quality, while the boy's screen self
is interpreted by Raymond Keane.
' Lea trice Joy may be seen in her
latest star production, "For Ali
mony Only,? at the Oregon April
The comedy scored tremen
dously and proved a genuine
cinema delight for all who wit
nessed the premierer. This ad
mirable William de Mille produc
tion deals with the evils of ali
mony and revolves around two
women, one the divorced wife of a
man who is n arrears in his ali
mony payments and his present
wife who goes to work as a decor
ator in order to help her husband
meet his financial obligations to
his former wife. Naturally, this
brings about more or less embar
rassing situations, all of which
are filled with drama and appeal.
Miss Joy Is the second wife,
Lilyan Tashman, the first, and
Clive Brook, the husband. All are
admirable in their portrayals.
Casson Ferguson, "the friend" of
the ex-wife, to whom she devotes
the major share of her alimony,
vests his role with his customary
virility. The supporting cast is
excellent in every respect. On the
whole,, the production -is of the
finest quality and fully deserves
the plaudits it evoked.
Farce is only drama in humor
That Js the definition supplied
by William A. Seiter,; one of the
screen's leading directors of farce
and light comedy,, whose latest
production, "The Cheerful Fraud."
starring Reginald Denny shows at
the Capitol April 28.

Some of the Notable Ones
Here, and Old Vines Bear

More grapes are going out every
year In the Salem district. Some
day, before long, we are going to
be able to point with pride to a
grape boom here. Every one with

with a town lot, ought to have
J. R. ("Jim") Linn of Hotel
Marion, , Is planning a country
home on his farm four miles
south of Salem; a dream home,
surrounded by fruit and ornamen
tal trees and a vineyard. It is only
15 minutes by auto from the heart
of Salem, but is off the main road
in a quiet vale. He is adding an
acre to his vineyard this year;
white grapes: Niagaras. This will
make four acres. He planted his
first grapes in 1915; Concords
and Wordens. Uses the stumping
system. Expects to produce fire
tons to the acre and this will go
on as long as he lives, and 1000
years more, if the vineyard is tak
en care of.
Mr. Linn believes this Is a good
grape country; that we should
have grape juice factories here.
He grew grapes in California, with
the best of them, when he was a
young man. his people grew
grapes when he was a boy. He
Deneves j.in -grapes. He grows
them on his hop farms, along with
cherries and asparagus and many
other products that excel here
with the proper cultural methods.
While he is a hotel man and a
nop grower and merchant, he is
at home as a "dirt farmer." like
Governor Patterson. He thinks
the hoe is one of the best, instru
ments for exercise that conduces
to good health and a spirit of rest-
fulness from worries in the tur
moil of the city. He has added a
swimming pool to his dream place
four miles south, and pure bred
Jerseys and other rural things. He
will add the house in due time-
with wide porches and cool shades
and beautiful views.

ago. Now his son, Arthur J.

miles from the Salem end of the

river; a mile east of the Wallace
road in Polk county. Near the
river; .rich bottom land. The
Fiala farm produces only one
variety; a sport of the Campbell's

year after year on merit. They
are a delicious table grape. The
Tines are trained high; the Fiala

the sunlight. Producing a delici
ous fruit. The Fiala vineyards
turn off 70 tons or more a year,
from 16 acres.
The Fiala farm, 34 acres in all,
has also 10 acres of asparagus.
Fancy asparagus. Nicely brand

Good for all time.
Mr. Fiala believes his exper

hundreds of times, in this district;
that we may have grape juice fac

center. In the mean time, he has

Great Grape Vines
There are many old grape vines
in the Salem district. On the

land, a few miles below the Fiala
place, there is a grape vine as big
as a man's body at the base, and
bearing nearly two tons of grapes
annually. Had two and a half
tons one year. The La Follette
grapes are of the Concord fam
ily. On river bottom soil, like
that of the Fiala land.
On the Steve Merton place at
St. Paul, about 20 miles north of
alem, there is a Concord grape
vine that Is over a loot inrougn
at its base. It bears a ton or more
of grapes each year.
In the Mt- Angel district, in
Marion and Clackamas counties,
there are many fine vineyards,
some of them producing great
crops. The layering system is
usied extensively in that district,
giving 10 tons and more to the
