Joseph C. Lincoln, nuthor of the
famous Capo Cod stories, such ns

throughout the five reels. In the sup
porting cast are seen Theodore Rob
erts, one of the best known character
men on the screen.

Is adopted by three quaint old sea
captains. Mary is only twelve years
of age when the story opens. When
Bhe Is adopted by the three old sea
captains, she takes charge of their
affairs r.nd mloa them with an iron
hand nnd a winsome smile. Arriving
at maturity, Mary falls in love with
a young Harvard graduate spending
the summer at the little Cape Cod
town. He is the son of one of the
captains, whose wife has deserted
him years before. She realizes that
she can never marry the young man,
because he is the son of her uncle's
betrayer. The young man's father
writes the captain for forgiveness.
Later the young man's father dies,

entire supporting company is ot ex
ceptionally high calibre.
The story, which was written by J.
Searle Dawley and E. Lloyd Sheldon,
begins when Conscience comes to
Ruth Somers after she receives a
message from a man whose sweet
heart had killed herself after his love
had been stolen by Ruth.
At the moment Ruth gets this com
munication, she is in her room pre
paring for her wedding to another

and there is enacted the various

of these little dramas within a drama.
Leland Norton, a wealthy man.
without a conscience, takes advan

over lack of funds with which to care

A girl who knows of the sacrifice
made by Heloise tries to blackmail
her and, failing, leads Mrs. Broulette
to a "secret banauet" given by Nor
ton nt which Heloise is the honored
guest. The shock kills the simple
old ladv. Horror stricken, Heloise
leaves Norton and obtains a place as
private secretary to a noted author
whose mother and sister take a great
liking to her.
The sister goes to New York for a
visit. There she becomes engaged.
The author falls in love with Heloise
and asks her to marry him. Her an
swer is that they can never be marri

fiance is with her. He is Leland Nor

at once or she will expose him. He
threatens her. Then the author, the
man who really loves Heloise, dis
covers Norton for what he is. And

Carol Holloway in
He had come Vest in an attempt
to forget the girl he loved. She was
the frivolous sort a flirt who
thought more of her power to attract
all men than of her power to love
and be loved by one man. Others
saw her as she really was pettish
selfish, heartless but to Jim well
she was the girl he loved.
And when Fate brought her to
Wolfville, he could not hide the joy
that came to him with her presence
And once more he entered upon the
well-nigh Impossible task to win and
hold her affection.
But she was seeking new con
nuests. She entered upon a danger
ous flirtation with a handsome "bad
man" "Smiling Jack" Douglas,
veritable Romeo of the ranges. Fears
for her wilfulness beset the man who
loved her. Saving her life by risking
his own found her still thoughtless
and ungrateful. And then Jim met
Cynthia, a wholesome product of the
great West, and ns the days passed
he found her beautiful in spirit as
well as in face and form. Her heart
was true and unselfish and Jim fin
ally found real love. But his was no
swift trail to victory'- There were
bullying "bad men" to he tamed, and
other sterner battles to be fought, but
with a girl worth while at his side,
he found it easy to wm. Adv.
Remembered the B
A Chicago man was walking
through a foreign quarter of his city
when, with an amused smile, he stopt
in front of a small eating-place, on
tho window of which was painter. In

Now the proprietor happened to be
standing in tl'o doorway and when
l;f saw the smile of the gentleman
who h;ul stopt in fr?nt of his place
l.n asked to be favored with an ex
planation of the joke.
Whereupon tho other explained
about the missing "b" in "lamb," and
tho proprietor accepted the correc--,
in rood p-'rt, at the sane time
evnrpssing hU thank3.
When next the Chicago man pass
ed that restaurant he found that the
menu had been changed, but that the
lesson in orthography had not been
forgctten. The proprietor was now

A Department Of Domestic Economy Intended To Serve A Patriotic
Purpose In Conserving Food Needed By The Allied Armies In Europe
WHEATLESS PLEDGE RECINDED
5050 BASIS STILL PREVAILS
Housewives throughout the country
who patriotically put their homes on
wheat less basis Inst spring, have
been released from their pledges to
the Food Administration to go absol
utely without wheat.
As no changes have been made in
the "fi't v-iUty" rule, housewives will
continue to purchase an equal weight
of wheat substitute with wheat flour.
Bakers are still obliged to make vic
tory bread, which must contain at
lea-t twenty-five percent wheat substitute.
This release of housewives follows
close upon like action in case of
hotels, restaurants, club? nnd dining
car services. t- ederal r oon Admin
istrators have beep v.hod to advise
heir deputies of the change.
Coming in of the new wheat crop
has made it possible for the nation to
o back partially to it rt old habits of
eating. Bui the uncertainties ol war
nd th- necessity fo'- building up a
fo"d reserve are incentives to caution,
ven in the face of a good crop.
The response of the American
housewife last spring, when the coun
try'!', wheat reserves were exhausted
r.nd only vbcat saved by abstinence
could be sent abroad in the response
o the life-ind-denlh appeals of the
Allies, is regarded by the Food Ad
ministration as one of the finest
manifestations of patriotic sririt
(ice America entered the war. Ilu-

oal year 1917-1918 sent the Allies 18.

fats and 80,900,000 bushels more
cereals than during 1916-17. From
American sources of supply also 1,-
9rG.400,000 pound3 more sugar was
shipped than the pre-war annual average.
How many pounds will you save for
them in 1918-19197
HOW YOU CAN HELP
WHAT TO SAVE AND
WHAT TO USE
Three times each day every Amer
ican has opportunity to be of direct
practical help to the men on the bat-
Save Sugar Two pounds per person
per month i3 the American Honor ra
tion. Try to eat less and add to the
National r-urpb's for canning. Do this
lint the fighting forces may be kept
r"lly supplied, anl that England,
France and Italy may receive their
reatly restricted requirements.
Use Fruits. Take advantage of the
natural sugir in fruits. Can without
"ir, ?r with little sugar. Add sugar
later, when it will be more plentiful.
Dried fruits, such as raisim, dates
md figs have much sugar in them.
Ue honey, maple products and sirups
Save Beef. Food for fighting men.
Save the large carcasses for them by
restricting yourself to small cuts, by
nroducts and trimmings hearts,
tongues, livers. We have enough in
crease supply of pork this summer to
permit economical expansion in its
e tr. relievo the pressure on beef.
Use Vegetables. Make local vege
tables fill an large a place as possible
in your diet, thus conserving not on
ly meat, and wheat but transportation
labor. Don't use canned goods
now, while the fresh are available.
Save Wheat. Keep on raving,
though the harvest is large. Build up
war reserves by per.-istent conserva
tion. Without American wheat sav
ed from the last harvest tho Allied
cause would have been lost. The
man in next year must not be so nar
row. Use Dairy Products. Always give
the children plenty or milk, milk pro
ducts and eggf. I'se them yourselves
freely now, and thus conserve meat
Use Fish. New species are being
popularized and supplies increased
Wat thi:; nutritious but perishable
food several times a week and let the
non-p "i ishables go abroad.
