She had hul of the "mystery jrirl,' found .-lain near Coffi lan Ft at 'on two years ajro, and thought this might havt)oen her missing daughter, says the Omaha World-Herald. Disappointed, Mr?.

" M , : who did not learn of her mother's search in Omaha until after she had done. She read in the oancrs .if her mothers trip here and immed utely communicated with the private detec- tive agency through which she was making the search. "1 was 17 when 1 left home in Alli- ancc. Neb., ten years ago," said Mrs. Dempcy la.t night. "I came to Om ihn to work. I left Omaha for awhile i nd about the same time my parents tnnvpl from Alliai.ce. Then we lust each other." Mrs. Dempcy said she expected her mother would immediately return to Omaha if able to stand the ioumev "Otherwise 1 shall leave at once for Orovillc," she said. "I am so anxious to see her." th Vile. mm "One a Minute," a photoplay dealing with P. T. Barnum's famous remark concerning the birthrate of fools, will lie the attraction at the Imperial to night Douglas MacLean puts the idea across. The story deals with a young lawyer who inherits a drug store and a war with a chain of stows which threatens to put him out of business. A patent medicine proves his salva tion, even when the rival syndicate has him arrested for violating the pure food and drugs act. The judge is taken ill during the course of the trial and "Knight's 1)9" proves a lifesaver. Fcarl White in "Beyond Price" is the Wednesday feature. In the be ginning of the play, she makes three wishes: She wishes to be a million aire's wife; she wishes to be a famous woman, and she wishes to have baby arms around her neck. All her wishes are granted. The big feature of the week comes Thursday, in Rex Ingram's "The Con quering Power," made by the producer and the cast that made "The Four Horsemen" such a brilliant success. Here's something about the story: The Grandet brothers have amassed for tunesone by showy speculation in Paris, the other by keen miserliness in the provincial town of Noyant. The Parisian wealth is swept away in a market gamble and he kills himself, leaving his son, Charles, a spoiled dandy of the boulevards, to the charity of the miserly brother. Charles trav els to Noyant, where he meets his charming young cousin. A simple, unworldly girl, she is fascinated by his metropolitan finesse. But her father, lustful for gold, packs the impov erished young man off to Martinique. Charles carries with him Eugenie's love and some thousands of francs that the girl had secretly given him. When the secret of this gift is learned, old Grandet, in a frenzy of rage, locks the girl in her room, and writes to Charles, who is struggling to make his fortune in the tropic island, that Eu genie is engaged to be married. So begins the tremendous drama of love and greed, founded upon "Eu genie Grandet," one of the greatest stories of the supreme novelist, Balzac, and translated to the screen for Metro in a production by Rex Ingram. The production that has been acclaimed in New York as rivalling the Ingram presentation of Ibanez's "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse," and the two principals of "The Four Horse men," Alice Terry and Rudolph Valen tino, have scored the greatest triumph of their careen as Eugenie and Chirle3.

A game has been arranned letwecn Alli.it.ee and Chappell for next Thursday. For a while a game seemed i to be a rather remote possibility as Chappe'd seemed to have tio great de sire to tangle with Alliance. Since the Sidney game, however, Chappell has evidently decided that Alliance is not as much to lie fen red" as they first thought nnd a game has been ar ranged. Chappell will alt-o play at Al liance for the last game of the season. Scottsl.luff defeated Bayard Friday 20 to 17, in a came which, accord inc to the ScottshlufT paper, was one of i the roughest ever seen on the Scott s bluff floor, two players being put otf the floor for slugging. Bayard's sea son has been rather disastrous no far. especially for the town that won the I championship last year. Uavards standing in the conference is second from the bottom, leading only Bridge- port. Sidney has contracted a rather an noying habit of walloping Alliance in basket hall, although Alliance usually get revenge in football. Iast year was the first time in nine years that Alliance was able to take Sidney's measure on their own floor, and even then Sidney evened the count by win ning on the local floor. Sidney seems to be a basket ball town, there never having been a time when they were not serious contenders for the cham pionship. Sidney has never had a weak team and they have probably taken the banner more time's than any other school in western Nebraska. Buck Iletron of Bayard has gone to' Michigan to join forces with his former j coach, Spruitt. llerron was all west-; ern fullback in 1!20 and all western quarterback in 1921. He has played! two years of basket ball with Bayard : also. His loss has been greutly felt by ' the Bayard team, which so far has done little in the championship ruce. Emerson and Central grade schools tangled in a preliminary to the Sidney Alliance game Friday night, Emerson emerging victorious to the tune of 22- j 2. Lunn ami Young played a great' game for the West Side team gather ing most of the points. The Emerson basketeers excelled in every branch of the game. A forward on the Shenandoah, Ia., basket ball team set a record which is seldom if ever equalled. This player. Captain Stibbs, threw twenty-three ; field goals and five free throws, or aj total of fifty-one points. In the game in which this feat was performed Shenandoah defeated Farragut high school 142 to 4. The present football scandal seems to bio" lair for wrecking every strong team in the middle west with the pos sible ' exception of Nebraska and Chi cago.' The other teams had no particu larly bright prospects for next year and cannot be depended upon to up hold the middle western states inter sectional battles.' All of Notre Dame's men are gone and Illinois' team is also wrecked. Iowa is involved but as yet nothing definite has reached the public. Probably the most prominent are Anderson and Killey, Notre Dame's famous ends, both of whom have been picked by several authorities for a place on the Ail-American. This may do something to make the college players realize the seriousness of play-1 ing witn semi-proieseionai teams, however. Kimball has a town basket ball team that from all reports should give any team a stiff tussle. Tekrinke, Eichen berger and Paulsen are playing and this trio are about as hard to equal as any to be found in the state. Paulsen is the man who was discovered to be ineligible in the middle of last season when it was found that instead of being an undergraduate he had already graduated from school in Pennsylvan ia. Paulsen is undoubtedly the fastest basket ball player in this part of the state. Sutton and Geneva, two rather small towns, have made remarkable records in basket ball. Both usually play in class A at the state tournament and play such towns as Lincoln, Grand Is land, Hastings and the Omaha teams, usually with about an even break in wins and defeats. This year Sutton lost to Lincoln after leading through out the game until the last few min utes. Other towns which have good records are Cambridge and North Platte, both of which lean heavily on football for their glory. Cambridge won the football championship in 1920 and North Platte in 1921. Ravenna defeated the Grand Island business college, 34 to 12, last week. The business college 'has applied for membership in the state conference, too. However, Hastings high defeated Hastings college at the beginning of the season and Hastings college is al ready in the conference They ha- e been some team to reckon with at times. Few high scores have been run up in western Nebraska high school basket ball in recent years and what is be-. heved to be a record game was played between Alliance and Crawford on Crawford's floor in 1908.
