PRESENTING THE BETTER CLASS PHOTOPLAY
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 12:
“THE SCARLET SAINT,” with MARY ASTOR AND LLOYD HUGHES.
New Orleans in Mardi Gras time. A riot of color, bizarre costumes and rol-
licking mirth. Against this background is enacted a thrilling drama of love
and loyalty, of a girl who sacrificed herself to save the man she adored, from
prison. Also, a clever 2 reel comedy “Failure.”
MONDAY, DECEMBER 14:
“THE BLOODHOUND,” starring BOB CUSTARD. Smiling Bob comes
again to thrill you and cheer you, as McKenna, crack agent of the Northwest
Mounted. Known as the bloodhound because he never fails to get his man.
A rattling tale of the Northwest Mounted Police. A dramatic thriller straight
to the bullseye. Also, Pathe News, Aesop’s Fables and single reel Pathe Comedy.
TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 15 AND 16:
“THE BEAUTIFUL CITY,” featuring RICHARD BARTHELMESS and
DOROTHY GISH. Our Dick as the flower seller, they called dreamer, failure.
Beautiful Dorothy Gish, as ‘Mollie,” his girl, whose tender love heals pain,
their fight to crawl from the shadows of the Ghetto into the sunshine of the
beautiful city beyond makes this the most inspiring drama of their glorious ca-
reers. This is a dramatic gem and with such a cast who would think of miss-
ing it. Also, Mack Sennett’s latest scream, “The Caretaker’s Daughter.” It's
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 17:
“GO STRAIGHT,” with the following all star cast: Owen Moore, Gladys
Hulette, Mary Carr, George Fawcett, Robert Edison and Francis McDonald. A
thrilling story of a beautiful girl who led a gang of crooks to breathless dar-
ing. Their amazing adventures started in the homes of New York millionaires
and terminated in the werld famous movie studios at Hollywood. Let the
beautiful bobbed hair bandit rob you of the blues and steal your heart away.
We could not pick out a better one. Also, Pathe News and Review.
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 18:
“PROUD FLESH,” featuring ELEANOR BORDMAN, HARRISON FORD
and PAT O'MALLEY. This is a classic picture of the eternal San Francisco,
past and present. A story of intense drama and passion. There is a solidity,
a warmth and a glow about it. It entertains and absorbs and provokes and
spurs the imagination. And we watch the triumph of laughing courage over
the solemn snobbery of the past. Where ean you see them any better? Also,
7th chapter of the “WILD WEST” serial.
MOOSE TEMPLE THEATRE.
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, DECEMBER 11 AND 12:
LEON KARL and DOROTHY GISH in “CLOTHES MAKE THE PIRATE.”
Just try to keep from laughing. One of the season’s greatest comedies, and
we don’t mean maybe. Also, 2 reel comedy, “Thundering Landlords.”
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, DECEMBER 18 AND 19:
TOM MIX in “RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE.” One more Mix picture
and it sure is a whale.

Our hunting club had their limit of

remained in camp until Saturday with
a view of capturing a bear or two,
but in this they failed, since bear are
not as plentiful as deer.
Barber Crissman, after selling his

There is a distressing condition of
the system marked by inability to
sleep, when, through the dreary
watches of the silent night repose is
solicited in vain and the individual
rises in the morning, even more ex-
hausted than when retiring, in hopes
of rest. ‘Whatever increases this pow-
er whether it be balls, assemblies, con-
certs, grief, joy, or bodily pain, or op-
pression of the stomach by late sup-
pers of intemperance, is prejudicial to
repose. By them the mind is excited
to a pitch of unnatural action, from
which it is nececsary it should de-
scend before it can roll into the calm
channel of sleep. The ticking of a
clock has this effect with very sensi-
tive people, when unaccustomed to it,
a candle burning in the chamber has
the same effect. For the same rea-
son the light of day pouring into a
window may awaken us from slumber.
I had the satisfaction of hearing the
able address of our President, over
our radio, on Monday, at noon, and
must say that I was agreeably sur-
prised at the sound logic expressed
before his farmer’s meeting in Chi-
cago. He seems to be in his element
when talking before a farmer audi-
ence. However, this is to be expect-
ed since he was raised and educated
as a farmer boy. When a great and
good man comes to the front, he adds
to the capital of brains and hearts;
he bestows on his fellow-men the ad-
vantages of his learning and culture,
his experience and eloquence, his tal-
ents and his genius. He encourages
education, literature, art, science and
human progress in all its highest and
noblest phases. He will have courage
enough to stand up in the face of fash-
ion and wealth, and tell the truth as
he understands it. Our President
seems to be a teacher of taste and
judgment, whose well balanced mind
is controlled by common sense and
judgment. His talk on this occasion
was applauded and apparently appre-
ciated by the farmers.
The question was asked a few even-
ings ago as to why song writer Fos-
ter selected Suanee River for his
soul stirring southern melody. Quite
interesting is the history of this
southern darkey melody, from the fact
that the song was written and the
name fitted to it afterwards. I will
here give in a conversation between
two friends the circumstances which
gave to it its name:
“Did you ever hear how ‘Suanee
River’ was written ?”
“Do not think I ever did.”
“Well, Stephen C. Foster was in the
zenith of his popularity when he wrote
the words,” said my friend to me.
“He had written in the frame house,
on Sandusky street, in Allegheny, but
he couldn’t find the name of a river
that suited Lim. Finally he went over
to the office of his brother, Morrison
Foster, sat down at his desk and said:
Morrison I've got a new darkey song
here, and it’s complete except the
name of the river. I want a southern
river with only two or three syllables.
Give me one, won’t you? Morrison
suggested several, but they didn’t suit.
Then he took down an atlas, ran his
eye over a map of the southern States
for a few minutes and finally said:
Here is a river in Florida by the name
of Suanee; how will that do? That’s
it, that’s it, exclaimed the song writer.
It’s just what I want.
Stephen never thought much of his
song until it reached the zenith of its
popularity. He was a great natural
song writer, his favorite, “Old Ken-
tucky Home,” will echo and re-echo
in the air as long as our world en-
dures. I knew Steve personally and
intimately while he resided in Pitts-
burgh. He thought New York city
would be a more prolific field for his
labors. He moved there and I regret
to say died in a hovel. He indulged
too freely in horizontal refreshments.

matter was reported to game warden
Many hunting parties broke camp
the latter part of the week and came
home owing to the rainy weather.
Some of them went back to the woods
again on Monday, and next week we
will be able to give a complete report
of the kill. One of the lucky day
hunters, on Monday, was young J.
Herman Everts, who shot a nice four
point buck in the Barrens. As he is
not yet of age he is quite proud of his
feat. Rev. Schlitzer is here from
Philadelphia hunting with the Pine
Grove Gun club, which has three bucks
to its credit.
A delightful birthday surprise par-
ty was held at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. John H. Williams, on Tuesday
evening, in honor of Mrs. Williams’
birthday anniversary. That good la-
dy had no idea of the gathering, hence
it proved all the more delightful when
members of her family and a host of
friends invaded her home, heavily la-
den with good things to eat and many
beautiful presents. It is needless to
say the evening proved a most de-
lightful one for all. Mrs. Williams,
whose maiden name was Miller, was
born at Rock Springs and her entire
life has been spent in the western end
of the county.

Dog to Die for Chewing U. S. Flags
Stamford, Conn.—Arnold Kurth,
dog warden, has in his kennels a mon-
grel found guilty of repeated attacks
on the American flag. The dog was
caught as a result of complaints that
flags over the graves of soldiers and
sailors in Woodland cemetery had
been chewed to rags.
Kurth passed several days watching
at the cemetery and caught the mon-
grel after it had chewed a flag. The
animal will be killed.
Hornets Wise Builders.
Hornets use dried wood from dead
trees in making their nests. Occa-
mandibles of the hornet the wood or
paper is mixed with a salivary secre-
tion and made into pulp, which is easi-
ly molded into form when moist. It
dries into a papery substance possess-
ing considerable tenacity.
All Worn Out?
So Was Mr, Cowher, Who Tells His
Are you tired all the time; worn out
night and day? Does your back ache
as if it would break? Do you suffer
dizziness, headaches, rheumatic twing-
es or distressing urinary disorders ?
You have good cause, then, to be
alarmed about your kidneys. Do as
many of your town folk recommend.
Use Doan’s Pills—a stimulant diuret-
ic to the kidneys. This Bellefonte
case is convincing:
H. D. Cowher, proprietor of cloth-
ing store, S. Allegheny St. says:
“After a cold, my kidneys bothered
me and I was annoyed with a con-
stant, dull pain in my back. When I
stooped, a catch took me across my
kidneys and it was only with difficul-
ty I could straighten. My kidneys
were sluggish and the secretions did
not pass often enough. It didn’t take
much to make me feel tired and worn-
out. I bought Doan’s Pills at the
Mott Drug Co. and they fixed me up
in good shape.”
