morrow also. Mr. Griffith has shown
in this marvellous new photoplay a
beautiful story of life and love and

boy with a longing for the big city,
and the stir and bustle of life in the
metropolis. The boy leaves for this
urban locality, where he hopes to
make as much as $25 a week. His
struggles and homely, everyday joys

success. Lillian Gish, Robert Harron

even the senses of the most particu
lar. in brief is as follows:
Herod Antipas has contracted an
illegal marriage with Herodias, wife
of his brother, Philip. Still strong
in arms, but the real power of his
domininon undermined by injustice
and trickery, he is more Interested in
voluptuous entertainment than in the
welfare if his people. Then comes
John the Baptist preaching the com
ing of a new kingdom, warning the
sinful to repent. lashing Herod,
Iferodias and their unlawful union
with words that burn. He is hailed
by the masses as a "second Elijah."
The people follow him. rejoicing in
his scornful denunciation of their
hated rulers. But Herodias, incensed
at the rebukes, plans John's destruc
tion, using Salome and her wiles in
an attempt to bring about his down
fall. John, unmoved by Salome's en
ticements, fans the flames of hatred.
One night, Herod, in the midst of
a debauch, calls upon the beautiful
Salome to dance before his throne.
She comes in response to his call and
rhirces in wild abandon. Deep in wine
and blinded by her sensuous appeal.
Herod rashlv offers her a reward!
"even unto the half of my kingdom."
Salome thereupon makes her request

and with its consummation ends one

Wilson is expected to arrive in this
city from Philadelphia at 8.15 to

Great Demand For Scats
Although there are but 3,926 seats
at the Opera House, demands for

President Musser's report shows
that the operating revenue of the
company in 1918 was $1,280,535.72,
an increase over 1917 of $109,857.76,
but this increase in receipts was
more than sent into oblivion by the
increase in operating expenses which
amounted to $137,981.04. The total
cost of operating during the year
was $747,396.05, which would make
the net revenue $533,139.67, or $28,-
123.28 less than in 1917. From the
net revenue must be taken the al
lowance for depreciation, $105,708.;
and taxes, including the amount re
served for unsettled taxes, $130,000,
or a total of $297,431.67 which rep
resents the operating income. To
this figure is added the non-operating
income of $22,068.42, which makes
the gross income of the company
$319,500.09. With the rent for leased
roads, $157,940.60; and the Interest
on funded debts, $148,837.50, de
ducted from the gross income there
remains for the year, a balance of
only $12,721.99.
Hit by Conditions
During the year 1918, the company
suffered heavily because of weather
and epidemic conditions. During
January and February the heavy
snowstorms interferred considerably
with and in some instances prevent
ed traffic. During October and No
vember business again took a big
drop because of the influenza epi
demic. So many of the employes were
ill with the disease that schedules
had to be curtailed and in addition
many persons walked rather than
come in contact with persons who
may have been in the early stages
of the illness.
The amount expended for main
tenance in 1918. was $177,251, as
compared with $104,780 in the vear
1917, an increase of $72,472, or 69
per cent. While this increase in the
cost of maintenance was very large,
it does not represent an abnormal
amount of repairs and is largely due
tb the high cost of labor and ma
The report says:
"The operating revenue increased
$109,857 or 9.4 per cent., compared
with the year 1917. Against this in
crease there was an increase in
operating expenses of $137,981, or
22.6 per cent., compared with the
year 1917. It is apparent, therefore,
that the increase in operating <fx
penses exceeded the increase in gross
revenue by $28,123.
"This heavy increase in operating
expenses was due largely to the ab
normal increases in wages, taxes and
cost of materials. Tho average rate
of wages paid car platform men
January 1, 1918, was 29 3-4 cents per
hour, and at December 31, 1918, 41
cents per hour, an increase in aver
age rate of 11 1-4 cents per hour.
The wages of other employes in
creased in about the same propor
tion. The average rate increased on
April 15 to 31 3-4 cents, on July 15
to 33 1-4 cents, on August 15 to 37
cents and on October 15 to 41 cents.

Dandruffy Heads
Become Hairless j
If you want plenty of thick, beau
tiful, glossy, silky hair, do by all
means get rid of dandruff, for it will
starve your hair and ruin it if you
It doesn't do much good to try
to brush or wash it out. The only
sure way to get rid of dandruff is to
dissolve it, then you destroy it en
tirely. To do this, get about four
ounces of ordinary liquid arvon; ap
ply it at night when retiring; use
enough to moisten the scalp and rub
It in gently with the finger tips.
By morning, most if not all, of
your dandruff will be gone, and
three or four more applications will
completely dissolve and entirely de
stroy every single sign and trace
of it.
You will find, too, that all Itch
ing and digging of the scalp will
stop, and your hair will look and
feel a hundred times better. You
car. get liquid arvon at any drug
store. It is inexpensive and four
ounces is all you will need, no mat
ter how much dandruff you have.

Physicians Explain Why Women Need, More I

Say Anaemia—Lack of Iron is Greatest Curse to the Health, Strength, Vitality and
Beauty of the Modern American Woman.
I'hjMrlnii nnil Medical Author, says
physicians should prescribe more
organic Iron—Nuxated Iron—to

formerly Physician of llellevue
Hospital (Outdoor Dept.), New

Iron. I
Any woman who tires easily, is|
nervous or irritable, or looks pale,
haggard, and worn should at once
have her blood examined for iron de
ficiency—administration of simple
Nuxafed Iron will often Increase the
strength and endurance of weak,,
nervous, careworn women In two
weeks' time.
"There can be no strong, healthy,
beautiful, rosy-cheeked women, with
out iron," says Dr. Ferdinand King,
a New York physician and Medical
Author. "I have strongly emphasized
the fact that doctors should prescribe
more organic iron—N'uxated Iron—for
their nervous, run-down, weak, hag
gard-looking women patients. Pallor
means anaemia. The skin of an
anaemic woman is pale, the flesh
ilabby. The muscles .lack tone, the
brain fags, and the memory fails, and
often they become weak, nervous,
irritable, despondent and melancholy.
When the Iron goes from the oiood of
women the roses go from their

America, the starches, sugars, table
syrups, candies, polißhed rice, white
bread, soda crackers, biscuits, macar
oni, spaghetti, tapioca, sago, farina,
degerminated cornmeal, no longer is
iron to be found. Defining processes
have removed the iron of Mother
Earth from these impoverished foods,
and silly methods of home cookery,
by throwing down the waste pipe the
water In which our vegetables are
cooked; are responsible for another
grave Iron loss. Therefore, you
should supply the iron deficiency in
your food by using some form of or
ganio iron, just as you would use Bait
when your food has not enough salt"
Dr. A. J. Newman, former Police
Surgeon of Chicago, and former
House Surgeon, Jefferson Park Hos
pital, Chicugo, says: "It has been
my particular duty during the past
six years to assist in keeping Chi
cago's five thousand blue coats In
good health and perfect lighting trim,
so that they would be physically
equipped to withstand all manner of
stonns and ravages of nature's ele
ments. Recently I was prompted to
give Nuxated Iron a trial. This
remedy has proven through my own
tests of it to excel any preparation

blood, building up the nerves,
strengthening the muscles and cor
correcting digestive disorders."

more harm than good.
"Notwithstanding all that has been

11 people would only take Nuxated
Iron when they feel weak or run.-,
down. Instead of dosing themselvJV
with habit-forming drugs, stimulants
and alcoholic beverages, there are
probably thousands who might
readily* build up their red blood cor
puscles, increase their physical
energy and get themselves Into a

disease germs that are almost contin

many people suffer from iron defi

are not strong or well you owe It ta
yourself to make the following test.
See how long you can work or how
far you can walk without becoming
tired. Next take two five-grain tab
lets of Nuxated Iron three times pen
day ufter meals for two weeks. Then
test your strength again and Bed
how much you have gained.
