The people have spoken, making
known their choice for the senate,

wishes. I desire to give expression
to my sincere appreciation of the
very loyal support given me by a
considerable number of my friends,
assuring them, and those too who did
not support me, of my unabated in
terest in the welfare of our people.
This release from the demands of a
larger sphere of activity will but give
me, in retiring to private life, in
:reased opportunity to serve my
:ounty and my people here at home.
[ shall be just as alert and active in
mending and being spent for the ad
vancement of our county along all
ines in the future as I have been in

Card From Mr. DeVore.
I am deeply grateful to the peo

in the first primary election, my
vote being larger than that of any
other candidate for county com
missioner as shown by the unofficial
returns. I respectfully ask that
the same generous support be given
me in the second election to be held
Dn September 14. ?If chosen by
the people to serve them I shall do
my utmost to give them entire sat
isfaction to every section of the
jounty, proving myself to be worthy
rf the confidence thus placed in
J. W. DeVore.

iifficulty in securing full election

STEWART the Star, needs
no word of introduction as to her
histrionic ability . One of the many
thrilling picture is when she, as a
mountain girl leaps a broken bridge
across a yawning chasm to save the.
man she loves from a blast of dyma
nite.'The setting fof the film itself
is way back in the old days when
the moonshiners defied, the law. and
when the famous band of night
riders are organized by the moon
In the great fox hunt, it is shown
that real Kentucky foxes can climb
trees and the mad baying of the
hounds can almost be heard, so re
alistic is this scene. And when our
heroine rides a real Kentucky horse
with splendid nerve can dash in one
of the finest races ever depioted on;
.the screen, it is said by all who]
have seen this picture, that one lit-;
erally rises with excitement and
with all the frenzy the courage of
man or beast can rouse in the hu-'
man breast, one is lifted to heights,
of exaltation and suspense, only dis
pelled by her winning of the race
by a nose.
The old Southern darkies are
shown, and the cute lovemaking of
Old Mammy and. her coon bring a
laugh and a tear. The whole pic
ture is fraught with humanity, and
is classed as one of the great Amer
ican classics. Exceptionally beau
tiful scenery lends enchantment to
this thrilling picture of a mountain
tain girl, who. though born among
the outlawed moonshiners wins her
way to love and success through
her intrepid daring and strength of
heart. Adults 50c. Children 25c,
