MOTION PICTURE AT METHODIST
A unique and gripping moving
picture, called "Out of the Christian
College," will be shown at the Meth
odist church to-night at 7:30
"Out of the Christian College" is
a four-reel educational drama. The
senario and supervision are the work
of Elmer T. Clark, Litt. D., and the
photography and mechanical work
done by the International Church
Film Company, of New York City.
The picture rights are the exclusive
property of the Christian Educational
Movement of the Methodist Episcopal
Those who have seen "Out of the
Christian College," pronounce it most
interesting. It shows in a vivid way
that Methodism is a child of Chris
tian education, being born in Oxford
University and having built a school
before ie ever had a church.
In addition to other scenes is one
showing President Woodrow Wilson,
from the White House, at Washing
ton, writing a hearty endorsement of
the- Christian Educational Movement
of the Methodist Church.
You cannot afford to miss seeing
this picture. Admission free. No
offering of any kind taken. The pub
lic is cordially invited.

TO PARENTS AND TEACHERS
I am very much encouraged by the

to the letters I sent out to Bourbon
county teachers regarding the prepa

the schools in the county do not con
tinue another month I trust that the
teachers and parents will not permit
that to interfere with their children
going ahead with their study and
with their plans to take the examin

Manager Crider promises the best
of order' d wil1 see it that there
will be nothing off ensive allowed dur-
ing the games. In announcing the
opening game of the season, Mr. Cn-
der makes this statement: "The lid
will positively be on durinir -venr
game to be played on the Paris
grounds this season, and no disorder
of any kind will be tolerated. N:
gambling or betting on the game, or
law violations of any kind will be

wholesome recreation, and for the
benefit of those who like to have it
kept such, we intend to do our part.
We have received the promise of po
lice protection for our patrons, and
any persons found drinking, gambl
ing or conducting themselves in any
kind of disorderly manner will be in
stantly removed from the grounds.
The same rule will apply to the play
ers." The Paris team will be but this" af
ternoon for practice work. In the
game to be played Sunday afternoon
the Paris team will line up as fol
lows: Berryman, catcher; Barlow or
Martin, pitchers; Caywood, first
base; Lancaster, second base; Mann,
third base; Brewsaugh, short stop;
Burnett,, right field; William, center
field; McFarland, left field; Johnson,
Breeze and Carter, substitutes.
The first game of the season should
be the means of bringing out a large
crowd of fans. Paris has not had a
team since the close of the Blue
Grass League some years ago, and it
goes without saying that the lovers
of baseball will take advantage of
the opportunity to see a good game
