Pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages and
that is catarrh. Catarrh being greatly
influenced by constitutional conditions
requires constitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh Medicine is taken internally and
acts thru the Blood on the Mucous Sur
faces of the System thereby destroying
the foundation of the disease, giving the
patient strength by building up the con
stitution and assisting nature in doing its
worh. The proprietors have so much
faith in the curative powers of Hall's
Catarrh Medicine that they offer One
Hundred Dollars for any case that it fails
to cure. Send for list of testimonials.

at Northern Division headquarters
from the national membership drive

suggested, should be Red Cross

preached from every pulpit. Mon
day publication of governor's mes
sages, statements by military leaders
within each district and announce

be in order. Tuesday should be
civil employes' day with a proclama
tion by the mayor and the raising of
the Red Cross flag over the munici
pal building. Wednesday should be
women's day, Thursday is suggest
ed as school day, with Red Cross
talks by teachers. Friday should be

GRAND TONIGHT CT
A member of the United States
secret service is the hero of "The Re-
coil," a five-reel Astra photoplay by
Anthony T. Kelly, featuring William
Courtenay and Lillian Greuze. The
story is melodramatic and moves
along at a lively rate. Much of the
material is familiar, the race to the
governor to save an innocent man
from being electrocuted being used
at the finish.

William Russell's new play, "The

George M. Cohan's recipe for a
happy entertainment as presented in
his new Artcraft picture, "Seven
Keys to Baldpate" at the Elko thea
ter, is an ideal prescription for the
most morbid grouch. In his new film
tonic, George M. has mixed with ex
act proportions, mystery, thrills and
laughter, with a sweetening dash of
love as a tribute to Cupid, all of
which will work the desired result
upon men, women and children alike.
A killer who reforms and teaches
his own kind a lesson in humanity
is the character assumed by Roy
Stewart in "One Shot" Ross, the
new Triangle drama of the early
southwest. "One Shot" brings law
and order to the hell-roaring settle
ment of Painted Gulch by virtue of
the two fastest guns in that sec
tion of desert country. The pic
ture is one of stirring action.

"The Spy" is an expose of German
methods of espionage in the United
States. It combines a mass of thrills
with a lack of unnecessary melo-
drama and it gives an entertain
ment that is well worth tfie price of
admission. It is a war story without
the superfluous battle scenes which
producers are now trying to feed the
Dustin Farnum, as usual, does
sterling work. He gives to the char
acter of Mark Quaintance, the spy, a
naivete and wholesome good humor
which are in marked contrast to the
vivid dramatic scenes of the photo
play. He starts out as a young man
of wealth and social standing, who
enlists on a dangerous mission to
Germany in the cause of his country.
After .many hair-raising experi
ences, he gains possession of a list of
Teutonic spies in the United States.
