Mav Have No Licensee Here
It is possible that the board will
not license any person on Maui to

Awards Made By
"The Widow's Might"
Clever Julian Eltinge, the well
known Paramount, feminine imper
sonator, makes a very fascinating
widow indeed in his newest produc
tion, "The Widow's Might." As to
his gowns they are the very most
gorgeous and fashionable of that
well-dressed actor's feminine collec
tion. The Ftory begins with Dick Tavisli,
a young city chap, deciding to move
out West and establish himself as a
cow-puncher, because he has heard
that t hi-re Is money in cows.
It is as a rancher that he meets
and learns to appreciate Hed, Cob
and Pete, three fellow-ranchers. And
it is one of them, lied, who accom

"Flare-Up Sal" is a typical Western
picture, and it has been given a regu
lar wild and woolly production by
Director Neil. He has taken his com
pany into giant redwood section of
California for the exterior scenes, and
the interior scenes including the
dance hall and gambling scenes are
marvels for their exactness in dupli

of the gold rush to California. Miss
Dalton has the title-role. The Red

her. and his curiosity gets the better
of him, so be arranged himself in the
garb of a minister, and visits the

instead, and they both leave and are

His Awed Listeners
An English scientist was in the
habit of taking hunting trips in the
north of Scotland. Here, when night
came upon them, and he and his
guides were sitting around their camp,
he would become very communicative
on scientific marvels, even narrating
to his seemingly awed listeners things
'hat he never confided to lis col
leagues at home.
One night the distinguished Eng
lishman paused in his talk, and, turn
ing, to one of his guides, asked curi
'Sandy, what is it that you and your
companions keep taking out oi your
pockets and eating while I'm telling
you these things?"
'Salt," replied Sandy calmly; "a
grain at a time."
