(St. Paul Dispatch,)
WOMAN NOT ATTRACTIVE.
"When a woman ceases to be in
nocent, she ceases to be interesting."
Thus speaks the blase man of the
world in Vitagraph's latest picture,
"The Wolf," in which Barle Wil
liams is star, McDonald, the man of
the world, provides in this play Xne
philosophy, of hearbreakers.
"The Wolf" will be the chief at
traction at the Grand theatre, on
Saturday and Sunday. It is an adap
tion of the famous stage play by Eu
gene Walter. Fay Tincher, in "Danr

It is not improbable that Centralia will go down in history
as another Bunker Hill. The red coats fired upon the American
idea at Bunker Hill and were driven from the country. The
red radicals fired upon the American Legionthe same Ameri-
can ideaat Centralia and the work qf driving them from the
country has begun and will be pushed to a finish.
One wonders how it is that Wil

photoplays. After "Les Miserables"
and "The nainbow Trail,"" it would,
be natural to assume that he would

everyone has applauded it.
"The Man Hunter" begins with

HOW TO REMOVE SOOT.
Large numbers of shingle roof and defective flue fires
are being reported, due to the increasing use of soft coal. The
accumulations of soot on heating surfaces reduce the value
of the fuel, and frequently clog the flues and start fires. Joseph
Harrington, administrative engineer for the United States fuel
administration, located in Chicago, suggests the following plan
for removal of soot:
The fire is put into good condition with a substantial body
of hot fuel. Common salt, thoroughly dried, is then thrown
or sprinkled onto the incandescent fuel bed in a quantity de-
pending entirely on the size of the furnace. In the case of a
house heating furnace, one pound at a time is ample in the
case of a large power plant boiler, four or five scoops full may
be required. The dampers are kept open so as to maintain
the furnace temperature and the salt is allowed to remain
until the fumes have entirely disappeared.
Immediately upon charging the salt, the furnace becomes
filled with dense white fumes which may require as much as
half an hour to entirely disappear. If results are not secured
on the first application, it should be repeated as many times
Once the heating surface is thoroughly cleaned a small
application every few days is usually sufficient to keep it so.
Everyone using any kind of coal is urged by the admin-
istration to use this remarkably simple and cheap process for
getting rid of the soot, cleaning and heating surfaces of boilers,
thus saving large amounts of coal, preventing fires from chim-
neys and generally conserving all along the line of heating and
the production of power.
KOORS BROS. CO. DESERVE GREAT CREDIT.
When that disastrous fire played havoc with the Koors
Bros. Co. plant, they were at that time contemplating improve-
ments upon the big building, to take care of increasing business,
but we have frequently remarked before that "destruction goes
before improvement," and readers of The Pioneer were last

In the days of the uhfenced West
gunplay was a science rather than a
hobby to be trifled with in idle mom
ents. The man with the quickest gun
frequently lasted longer than the
man with another cheek to turn.
Gun fighting is a blot on the escut
cheon of the great west, but there
was a time when it was the first law
of the men who rode the range.
There have been times, within the
memory of many of us, when gun

FINDS OWN LEVEL
The fact that water finds its own
level in human affairs is dramatical
ly visualized in Vitagraph's new pic
ture, "In Honor's Web," which will
be shown as the feature attraction
at the Grand theatre oto tonight for
the last time.
Harry T. Morey is the star. He
takes the role of Frank Powell, a
wealthy manufacturer with a weak
ling brother, Bert, whom he is send
ing through college. The elder man
applies his fortune and his experi
ence to shove his brother ahead in
lifeymt all his efforts seem to go for
naught. Bert is a weakling, and his
experience seems to demonstrate the
adage that water seeks its own level.

WIND HELPS ROAD BUILDERS
When Used in Construction of High
ways In New Mexico Experiment
A new method of using the wind in
sand-road construction has proved so
successful, that, after making a nine
mile experimental stretch in New Mex
ico, roadmakers in that state have,
built 80 miles of similar highways.
First of all, the grass and weeds are
cleared from the right of way, and
then, a trench Is. made through the
and to the day bottom. The loose
sand is deposited in stacks ten feet
from either side of the cut, and the
rest of the work la left to the desert
winds. During the spring and fall* the
winds sweep away all the sand and
widen the clay strip. Then the ro#d Is
graded and the worf nnlshed."

HUMAN'S WIFE 8
SOU) TO TOM'S HATCH
Man Himself Escapes Hanging
by Fainting and Feigning
The price that a man must pay to
be a- Christian in ffurkey was
counted by Isador der Bochos when
he made application,.In the federal
court In Chicago for a passport to
Constantinople, where he hopes to res
cue his wife from ajsTurklsh harem.
Bochos' story might have been
plucked from the pages, of history of
Nero's time. Four years ago, when
Turkey joined with Germany to crush
the world, wholesale slaughter of
Christian -Armenians was ordered by
With thousands of others, Der
Bochos and his family were seized.
His wife was sold into the harem of
a wealthy Turkish official. Their three
children were scattered.
Der Bochos was sentenced to die.
With 200 Armenians he awaited hang
ing. As he waited a .Turkish guard
was shot at his side. Der Bochos
fainted. When he revived the hang
ings had been completed and he lay
in a heap of corpses. The executioner,
thinking he was dead, had neglected

After the war Der Bochos learned
his son, now sixteen years old, had
been brought to America by some ref
ugees. He found him in Chicago. And,
now he wants to go to Constantinople
~to rescue his wife.
"How can you free her when you
reach Constantinople?" the immigra
tion agent asked.
"I know mot," he replied, "but 1

I have been aided by miracles. Per
haps there will be another miracle
and then we will all be together as in,

thought as I looked at the unfortu
nate mess that I failed to see the steak
which had been on the.tray, but sup
posed that it had fallen under a chair
out of sight. A waitress stepped up tc
me and told me to select my dinner
over again, which I did, with every
one in the place watching me. I bolt
