today ac the Paramount, and the
synopsis ls as follows:
Mark Stebbing and Lionel Barmore
are two young clergymen in a metro
polis, both friend--', both earnest
workers for the cause in which they
hare enlisted, but of distinctly oppo
site types. Both, love the same wo
m&n, the beautiful Margaret Wharton,
the daughter of a proud and wealthy
old capitalist, and a strong support

The bishop of the diocese has two
vacancies for which he must recom
mend rectors; one of the churches ls
that or the rich St. Hilda's, the other
that of St. Osmund's, the broken and
deserted church of the slums. Steb
bing, tbe uncouth and self-made man,
chooses the poverty-stricken church
of the poor and sinful as the place
that needs him most, while the pol
ished and brilliant ' Barmore ls glad
to see the beautiful church of St
Hilda's fall to bia lot
Barmore and Stebbing confess their
love to Margaret on the same day,
and she, in doubt as to which is the
better man/ answer? 'them both eva
sively. Barmore takes his leave,
gallantly, desiring he may hope for a
definite answer in the future; but
Margaret's little coquetry is1 mistaken
by the straight-forward Sebblng for
a disguised "yes," and he seises ?er
in his arms and fervently kisses her.
Margaret is shocked and resentful,

Stebblng, feeling that he has been
ungentlemanly, in self-revulsion
leaves her presence and goes back to
The old bishop dies, and Barmore
and Stebblng are both named as can

naturally cease to be friends during
the struggle for the two prizes, b..t
Stebblng himself tells the people thal
Barmore 1B better fitted for the er
alted position. Wharton's workmen
go on strike, and Stebblng learns of
a dynamite plot against the works,
and stops it just in time to save
Wharton's entire property from ruin,
though much ls destroyed. He pleads
with Wharton 'to yield to his em
ployee's demands, but without suc
On the day of the election cf bisaop
Stebblng leaves the church to rush
to the yards where he has heard
strikers are rioting. He finds that
the toughs among the infuriated
strikers have placed Margaret in a
shed in which deadly explosives are
stored, which are about to he sst on
fire. He saves Margaret, and pre
vents the militia from firing upon the
strikers, being himself nearly killed
*.n the struggle. The bishopric is
given to Barmore. but through these
circumstances the strength of Steb
bing's character is revealed to Mar
garet, and she gives him her promise
aa "the better man."

Whatever eise,you are compelled to give up during this
I period of readjustment, don't give up your insurance, it is
J a hard-times proposition-that is, you need it more when
! business is below normal than you do when things are com
l\ ing your way. /
In this modern day of uncertainty, insurance is the fcne
I. thing that a fellow can count upon in adversity. Other in
Vi '-.sr *? % *
H vestments m^y prove of no account. Many a man has be-.
P lieved himself to be in' good financial condition, only to
y awaken in the morning to find that he wasn't worth a cent.
I But the man who is insured is absolutely certain that in the
1 event he is called to the Great Beyond those dependent upon
him will have something to count upon.
Not only should one manage to keep up his insurance at
I this time, but he should take out more of it, ii it is at all pos
M sible. For the man unskilled in handling money, there is no
? other investment any safer--and even the fellow who sup
poses he knows all about handling money is frequently mis
I taken. If there had not been a -place in the economy of
I things foi the insurance companies they would long ago have
been forced out of business-Editorial, Dayton (O.), Da?iy

When a man insures with the Mutual Benefit Life Insur

Zeltler and Billy LigLtell-were very,
very good indeed. Zeitler reminds
one considerably ci Bert Swor, one of
Al G. Fle'Js best men. His manner
isms are "cry much like Bert's. His
singing of comic songs was excep
tionally good.' The buck and wing
dancing of Lighten and Lighten was
about as finished a piece of buck and
wing dancing as one will see in the
"Big Show." From beginning to end
lt was classy. The interlocutor, Jim
my Collins, had the poise and stage
presence so necessary to a position
of this kind. The piano playing of
Miss Ida Clark, together with lier
singing was one of the best parts of
the evening's pleasure. Eddie Clark,
the tenor singer had a very sweet and
clear voice, and his songs pleased thc
audience g.cally. Mrs. Jeltler in her
song sud dance also scored a hit.
The entire little production, including
costuming and staging, was nwhy
above the average for Tab shows.
Manager Plnkston is entitled to thc
congratulations his patrons arc show

good show this week, that's certain.

The Young Fanner's Need of a
Yearly Business Inven
?he young ramier who ls endeavor
ing to build up a more efficient and
profitable business seldom retains
Much cash. When money ls received
he buys a new 'Implement, another
animal, improves a building, or makes
payments on bills for things bought
on credit. During the course of the '
year he may receive and pay ont
large cums of money, leaving almost
no cssh at thc end of the year. The
annual returns may seem to have been
only a fair living for himself and fam-t
Hy, whereas the farm business may
have turned a good profit, which waa'
Invested from menth to month. Hence
it in important for the farmer's su!fi
ance and encouragement that, he make
an annual inventory of his farm in- *
vestments. This Inventory should be
a detailed list, with values, of every
thing used In the farm business, in
cluding land, buildings, ilve stock,
machinery and tools, pro??ce for feed
or sale, supplies, bills receivable, and
cash; alBo a list of all accounts and
bills owing. The difference between .
the total assets and debts shows lin
net farm worth.
A study of two successive inven
tor of a farm in New York State il
lustrate? how one young farm^ on
100 acres prospered regardless of the
fact that he had almost no cash at the
end of the year. The total asseui at
the beginning of thc yorr amounted to
$18,090 and to 818,400 at the end of
the santo year, an increase of $310.
The increased investment in live
stock, machinery, and toola, and more
produce held for sile amounted to $1.
073, but this waa'partlali/ offset by
the cash decrease of $7?? J. The farm
indebtedness waa also reduced by
$253, thus making ? total Increase in
net worth to tho farm business of
$563. Tbe Inventory values covered
all depreciations and increases in
values, so that this $563' was net in
?rense in thc value of, the farm in
vestment It moana tt?t thip sum waa
saved from the year's bualneas after
all farm expenses had been paid, in
cluding interest, borrowed money and
all living expenses.. The amount of
cash at thc end of tba year, $133, prov
ed to be no Indication of the success
