EL PASO HERALD
AT THE WIG
Big Houses Greet Each
Presentation of Wonder
Film, "The Kaiser."
The Wigwam theater was packed at
its presentation yesterday of the won
der picture of the year, 'The Kaiser,
or the Beast of Berlin." Only the
early shows were the ones at which
there were seats to spare. If you
have not seen this production, which
is a national sensation, come today
and come early. Do not get crowded
out at night or in the late afternoon.
Aside from its timeliness, "The Kai
ser" is a picture which is filled with
information and court secrets. The
most intimate things in this monster's
life are depicted and told to most of
the spectators for the first time. His
tainted blood is revealed after the in
cident where he is knocked cold by a
young- army captain when the court
physician remarks that the blow
would have rendered him a raving
mad man had it been four inches
higher. A note then tells you that he
has a cancerous abcess In his left ear.
His withered left arm, another result
of his blood taint, is graphically
shown, and his peculiarities, such as
his mania for women with pretty
hands, are also brought to light.
There is a pretty romance coupled
with the horrors of Belgium's devas
tation and there are thrilling scenes
relative to the awful invasion. The
finale, with the anticipated punish'
ment of the kaiser when this terrible
war is over, rouses the spectators to
cheers and the memorable interview
of Gerard with the kaiser brings
Have you bought your thrift stamps
and your third Liberty loan? If not,
you will, after you see "The Kaiser.
Again we plead, come early if you do j
not want to take a chance in being
disappointed in obtaining admittance.

Wednesday morning, Supt. Guy
at Bingham will lecture at 10
oclock on The Making of the
Fabric: or, A Duty of Democracy
to Its Boys and Girls."
"One of the needs of the hour is for
Christian women," said judge George
D. Alden, speaking on The Needs of
the Hour" at Chautauqua Monday
night. "What would this nation be
without women? It would be a stag
nation. What a change has come over
the women. The woman of SO years
ago wouldn't recognise her sister of
today. Eve might recognize her. One
of the great needs for women is to
turn from degeneracy in dress to de
cency in attire."
Judge Alden's lecture was preceded
by a concert by Misses Mildred Mor
rison and Alice G. Smith. Miss Smith's
work as a harpist Is very artistic and
shows a finished technic. She gave a
song or two, furnishing her own ac
companiment, and with Miss Morrison,
sang several very effective duets.
Miss Morrison is the reader of the
duo, and her work was given with a
charming animation. Her child im
personations were particularly well
received. Her song numbers were
given with much feeling, and brought
sympathetic response from her audi
ence. Between the afternoon and eve
ning performs ares, the Morrison

Trees Xeed Spraying.
Judge Alden was introd jced by Supt.
Guy M. Bingham as a lineal descend
ant of John Alden. but the Judge,
when he took the floor, declared that
he wouldn't change places with any
of his ancestors. "Just think." he
said, "John Alden never was in Texas.
I don't go much on this family tree
busineas, anyway," he continued, "for
I've seen too many of them that need

he said, "I would recommend to con
gress a conservation of conversation.
The time for discussion about the war
has passed. No matter what was your
opinion or mine about the prelim
inaries, we are In it now and rightly
so. and we're going to win."
Four Mala nelatlonshlna.
Judge Alden took up his subject
under the heads of the fonr main re
lationships of life, which, he said,
were all Interrelated. Commercial, po
litical, domestic and religious. History
had always been his favorite subject,
he said, and no one could study his
tory with open eyes and not see that
every nation that had ' turned from
God to gold had gone down. He said
that, as he had never been in El Paso
before, he could not talk about the
people here, but he was going to talk
about some people he knew very well
in Maine. New Hampshire and Ver
mont. AH through his discussion,
he produced a wave of amuse
ment, after particularly telling criti
cisms of some universal human fall
ing, by reiterating that he was not
speaking of his audience, but of cer

Massachusetts, his own home state.
