?Big Story in George Loane Tucker
Production Will Grip Audience.
Published originally as a novel in
Munsey's Magazine, written by
Frank L. Packard and later drama
tized by George M. Cohan and pre
sented with phenomenal success on
Broadway, George Loane Tucker's
producton "The Miracle Man" comes
to the Edgefield Theatre on October
15th. As a Paramount Artcraft pic
ture this absorbing story has been
hailed by the critics as one of the fi
nest productions ever seen on the
screen. With scenes laid in the haunts
of criminals in New York's China
town, in a little village on the side
of a giant mountain and on the shore
of a roaring ocean, the opportunity
for wonderful photographic effect
has been reapplied to the limit.
But the chief interest is in the
striking story which centers about
the venerable figure of an old patri
arch who is credited with the power
to heal the sick and make crippled
limbs whole again. To him come Tom
Burke and his band of crooks from
New York's Chinatown, with the idea
of cashing in on his powers. But it
doesn't work out as they calculated,
for hidden away in each of them is
a leaven of good, which slowly comes
to the surface under the influence of
their wholesome environment. In a
most marvelous way the criminals
are reclaimed from the paths of
A cast of unusual ability enacts
the important roles in the picture,

READY FOR DELIVERY
Edgefield farmers are face to face with entirely new conditions-new labor
conditions, and enforced crop diversification. In order to cope with the new
situation new machinery, labor-saving machinery, must be used. Those who
have used a tractor on the farm declare that nothing can take its place. You
can break your ground and harrow it with one operation.
You can saw wood or operate a saw mill
with an 8-16 International Tractor
Ask Edgefield farmers who are using them. They burn kerosene instead of
gasoline, making their operation cheaper.
We also have Disc Plows, Harrows and Grain Drills
Just the implements that are needed for putting in a large grain crop.
