valiantly between love, duty, and the
law, and in the end everything ends
as it should. The play is not depress

artists rlns true throughout. It is
declared to be an exceptional produc

A. T. SHORT, Proprietor.
West Virginia's prohibitory liw
went into effect July 1, 1914. After
one month's trial the Wheeling Ad
vance said: "West Virginia is dee
lighted." "Wheeling," it goes on, "the
largest city of the state, voted almost
four to one against prohibition. It
now registers a sentiment of about
four to one for prohibition. At t:
workhouse, where the city employed
as high as fifteen guards and employ,
ees, one superintendent and on
guard are left. Even on the estimates
for next year the finance police com
mittee intimates that almost $6,000
may be saved. At the city lockup It
has been found unnecessary to em
ploy the lockup keepers. In all, or
committee estimates for next year,
prohibition will save the citizens al
most $1C,000 in the police force and
prison." All this, be it remembered
after just thirty days of the dry regime!
