We are advised as follows in a letter under date of Jan. 2P, 1921, from Paul D. Sargeni, Chief Engineer, State Highway Commission: “It is doubtful if the contribution al ready made will any more than meet the City’s share of the expense when the final accounting is made. It is possible that we may have to call for a little ruore money, but we hope this will not be the case.*’ 1 he State Highway Commission has indicated its willingness to join with the State and county in the building of the Perkins Road bridge, and a permanent organization will be made for that pur pose in the immediate future.

Holmes, frank Losee and Ida Waterman, FRIDAY Servants sometimes prove even better looking ladies and gentlemen than those whom they serve. It is largely a matter of clothes. This is cleverly shown in “You Never Can Tell,” the romance of a little check room girl and the initial Bebe Daniels starring vehicle for Realart. It is being shown Friday. “You Never Can Tell” ; was tceuarized by Tom Geraghty and Helmar Bergman from two Saturday Evening Post stories by Grace Lovell Bryan. Chester Franklin directed.

It is that. of’Francois Villon, the famous vagabond in Justin Huntly Me Carthy’s book and play “If I Were King” —a role made famous on the stage by E. H. Sothern. Mr. Farnum has given to the screen many of the most important pictures I shown in the last few years. His dual ! role in “A Tale of Two Cities,” Charles Dickens’ famous story, is still being shown throughou the United 5tal.es and Great Britain and on the continent It is indeed a classic in motion picture art. Another among Farnum’s innumerable big pictures is “Les Miserabies,” which, like “A Tale of Two Cities,” will be shown and reshown for years. His “Riders of the Purple Sage” and his “Rainbow Trail” drew packed houses wherever shown.

As a climax you will see hew Wally saves the great Gabtillo dam fiom over flooding the valley, by his thoughtful work with the motor truck.

It is called a permanent photoplay classic, which means that it wiil live when the ordinary entertainment film has passed on.

Webb, who gave a very suggestive and profitable address. Among the many things sug gested was the taxing ot luxuries, to bacco, bachelors, childless married wom en, etc. It was quite evident that the worshippers at the shrine of “My Lady Nicotine” were in no way disposed to accept such a proposal without protest. As for the bachelors, if they said nothing against the proposition, it is reasonable to suppose they did some hard thinking. As for the last named proposal, it would have certainly been interesting to have heard what the unborn babies who “trail ing clouds of glory .... come from God who is our home” and cannot lind a hu man home to welcome them, would have said about those who prefer to lavish af fection on a pet poodle-dog rather than a little child. A warm invitation is ex tended to the men of the city to attend the forum. Speaker for next Sunday Rev. A. C. Elliott, subject, “The Church and Democracy.” The seventh picture-talk in the “Better ! America” series will be given in the i church next Sunday evening, subject, j “What Our Fathers Paid for the Liber-I ties of the Republic.” This will be one , of the best in the scries and should be heard by everyone in Belfast. It br.ngs before us some of the outstanding men of history and deals with events of vast historical importance from the days of ancient Greece to the great World War. Let all those who appreciate the liberties we enjoy and wish to preserve these lib erties for our children and the generations yet to be, plan to hear this splendid talk.
