"The Cavell Case" Five Months

From the day the cast was first

1 Arthur through Select Pictures at
1 the Auditorium in Welsh on Tues

It took '90,000 feet of negative
film to make the picture, as a
number of the most important
scenes had to be made over sever
al times before director John (;.
Adolfi was satisfied with them.
l Altogether the picture is as near
- perfect as it is possible to make
such a production, and ii' tIc
t 'hands of Mr. Adolfi and Anthony
Paul Kelly, the author, this means
that "The Cavell Case" is ninety
nine per cent perfect in detail a.,il
t With the aid of historical so
cieties and newspaper dispatches
describing the actual shooting of'
Edith Cavell, Mr. Kelly was en
abled to make an'accurate antl
t faithful screen story from one of
the most horrible of all German
atrocities-the death of an inno
e cent and loving woman. The star
of the picture, Julia Arthur, is a
well known stage celebrity, while

the other important roles, is a

A deal was consummated early
this week whereby Messrs. P. I).
Watkins and Sherman Carter be- S
come the owners of the .. F. Hoke
'arm three and one-half miles
east of Welsh.
The property embraces 472 2
acres of very fine farm land, well ri

finest and best equipped farm "
homes in this section, electric

Mr. -loke will be greatly missed s
in the farming life of the conm

and his estimable family will be c
missed socially. Their neighbors I
attest to the latter fact.
Mr. Hoke expects to leave with
his family for their new home in
about ten days. He is leaving his
herd of Holsteins and other farm
animals in the care of the new
owners of the farm and will re
turn during the fall and close
them out at public auction.
The Ocean Shrunk.
The impression of the ocean

says, is "to the effect that the At

The enormous saving in time is
astounding, the voyage taking on

that a steamer would require.
The enthusiasm of the British

OBSERVATION TOUR .
FOR DAIDY FARMERS
The dairy farmers of Louisiana x
are being urged by C. It. Staples,
dairy spccialist, Extension D)iv
ision, Louisiana State University,
to enroll in the D)airy Farmers
)lservation Touring Party which
will attendl the National Dairy
Show to be held in Chicago, Oct
ober 6 to 12 inclusive. The ob
ject of this trip is to stimulate in
terest in the dairy industry and
give the farmers the privilege of
visiting some of the best dairy
sections in Wisconsin and Iowa.
Two similar trips have been made
and from the exlperience gained
fromi them it has been found that
mmuchi time and expense can be
gained by traveling with a p)arty
of this kind. The entire trip will I'
require about ten (lays.
Every detail in regard to the b
itinerary of the trip will be work
ed out before the party leaves and \
all accoomodations planned ahead. i
The trip will be both profitable I
and l leasant and the expense in I
comparison to the value recieved =
will be relatively small.
It is hoped that a large number )
of dairy farmers of Louisiana a
will make their plans to take their i
annual vacation at this time and i
spend a few days seeing the larg- t
est dairy show in the world and I
visiting a number of the most i
progressive dairy sections in the I
Among the dairy farmers en
rolled to go are: L. K. Williams,

Farm, Patterson, La., W. B.
