NASHVILLE -GLOBE, FRIDAY APRIL 13, 1917.
- !We have words only of highest
praise for Miss Viola U Flagg for her
earnest and successful management
of the portrayal of "The Captain oV
Plymouth," which was cleverly en
acted at the Bijou Theatre last Tues
day night. All or the participants
were members of the Minnehaha Club
a club that is worthy of the hljih
amount of congratulations for their
aims along literary lines. To only
eay that the performance was good
would be a mild way of putting. It
was really great and reflected much
credit upon the performers. Misses
B. Madeline Carter, Leon Saunders.
Ruth B. Allison and Messrs. R. Ashe
and A. I Robinson were easily the
stars of the affair..
We are always pleased to see the
good work of our local talent, for
there are many among us who could
spring forth a surprise if they were
given an opportunity.
Our hats are off to Miss Flagg and
the Minnehaha Club. ,
THE STAR THEATRE.
An unusually large crowd has taken
advantage of the pleasant weather of
the last few days to get out and se
the high class pictures shown at tl"
Star. The photo-plays now displayed
at this popular house are now really be
ginning to be the talk of the town. Two
high class motion -pictures were put
on last week, "Patria" in which Mrs.
Vernon Castle was the star, and the
first episode of the new Path serial
"The mystery of the Double Cross,"
In which Leon Barry, formerly Sarah
Bernhardts leading man. The Star
knows what to give to please. Mr. T.
Clay Moore, who Is the "power be
hind the throne" is a clever business
manager, congenial and pleasant at
all times, making his presence there
quite an asset toward winning and
keeping patronage for the house.
Get in the habit of attending the
Star, for it is the Movie house that
you will eventually attend.
rtue Bijou is still showing high-
ciass pictures and the people turn out
largely each day and night to see the
pnoto-ploys. "Society night," every
Friday, continues to be popular and
some reaiure- picture is shown. The
Bijou Orchestra, lead by Lewis Mit
chell proves to be an added attraction.
The Bijou management presents to
their patrons only the best which
proves to be the great thing in their
This little movie house out on Jef

Boger, the enterprising manager sees
to it that only high class and instruc
tive photo-plays are shown. Really

a week. You will never regret the
pleasant hour of amusement and in

"BUSINESS" COUNTS SAYS PIC
It is the "business" that counts in
pictures even more than the big
things, according to Williams Parke,
under whose direction Pathe's "Mys
tery of the Double Cross" was pro
duced by the Astra Film Corporation.
"In a picture it is the 'business'
that counts," says Mr. Parke. "Also
In a play a bit of business will get a
bigger laugh than any line you can
speak. I remember in particular, one
play I produced. It had been sent
around to many managers but thev
had no faith in It. . However, I saw
Its possibilities and it turned out to
be a big success.

WAR CLOUD. '
My riend, let me tell you all God's
way is not like war. The Bible said
the Ethiopian shall stretch forth her
hand, and princes shall come out ot
Egypt. Then, if we are believers in
the Bible, then let us look for better
friends. Let me call you to one
part of the Bible. Note the 8th chap
ter of Daniel: "In the third year of
the regn of king Belshazzar a vision
appeared unto me, even unto- mo
Daniel, after that which appeared un
to me at the first. And I saw in a
vision; and it came to pass, when I
saw, that I was at Shushan in the
palace,1 which is in the province of
Elam; and I saw in a vision, and I
was by the river Ulai. Then I lifted
up mine eyes, and saw, and, behold,
there stood before the river a ram
which had two horns and the two
horns were high; but one was high
er than the other, and the higher
came up last. I saw the ram push
westwardm, and northward, and
southward; bo that no beasts might
stand before him, neither was there
any that could deliver out of his
band; but he. did according to his
own will, and became great. And as
I was considering, behold a he-goat
came from the wet on the whole
face of the earth, and touched not
the ground; and the goat had a
notable horn letween his eyes. And.
lie came to the ram that had two-r
horns, which I had seen standing be
fore the river, and ran into him in
the fury of his power. And I saw
him come close unto the ram, aud he
was moved with choler against him,
and smote the ram, and brake his
two horns; and there was no power
in the ram to stand before him, but.
be caat him down to the ground, and
and stamped upon bim; and there
was none that could deliver the ram
out of his hand." Therefore, my
friend, just look who is standing
with all the power, but the Gurroans
when they come they will not come
on the ground; b'ut they have but
one horn because there is not but
one and they are coming and yet
the power looks impossible. But the
Bible must be fulfilled. So look out
boys, God is for us if we will serve
