THE FEATURE OF THE SEASON. "The Unbeliever" at Davis Theatre Today, Tuesday and Wednesday, Accompanied by a Special Detail of U. S. Marines. The United Ptates Marine Corps re cently collaborated with Thomas A. Edison and Geortre Kleine in produc inr what is said to be the greatest moving picture of the war, and this feature Is to have its first presenta tion in this citv at the Davis theatre starting this afternoon. "The Unbeliever" is a motion pic ture that carries a message to Ameri ca which teaches a lesson, as did "The Birth of a Nation." It is some thing unique In film production in that It was taken through the active co operation of a branch of the United States defenses; the Marine corps. Marine officers and men take part in the presentation of the play. The pic ture breathes the fervor of intense loyalty, and tells a story that is in it self a powerful sermon. "The Unbeliever" is a story' of a man who finds his faith in the smoke and din of battle, Phil Landicutt. a youcg American aristocrat, who has 1 , s & i little faith in God, humanity or the brotherhood of man, Joins the marines, and once "over there", finds his unbe liefs are but shadows, and God, hu manity and brotherhood , are real. Thrilling trench warfare, bombard ments of Belgian towns, charges, hand-to-hand conflicts, outpost duty and artillery duels are shown in startling realism, while the slaying of women and children by the Prussians stirs the spectators to fighting enthu siasm. Major Ross E. Rowell appears in charge of the artillery operations. Ma jor Thomas Holcomb commands the Marine infantry and orders them "over the top". Captain Thomas G. Sterrett is seen in command of a dug out, and in one Instance calls for six volunteers to go out on 'sapping duty and report on enemy mining activi ties, lieutenant James F. Rorke plays the part of Lieutenant O'Shaunnesy, who dies in agony on the battlefield in the arms of a Jewish Rabbi, who helps him find his . crucifix as he breathes his last. A special detail of IT. S. Marines from New London will accompany this picture tonight. Other features on this bill are Enid Bennett, the beautiful Inc star in A Desert Wooing, a five part Paramount picture, and a Gaso line Wedding, a funny Pathe comedy. Usual time and positively no advance in prices. Order your seats now and save disappointment later. Jewett School in New Location.

Among: the beautiful pictures That hang on Memory's wall Is one of a dim old forest, - That seemeth best of all; , 'V ' Not for its gnarled oaks olden, 1 Dark with the mistletoe; :-: Not for the violets golden t . " That sprinkle the vale below; . - Not for its milk-white lilies. That lean from the fraerant ledee. Coquetting all day with the sunbeams, And stealing tneir golden edge; Not for the vines on the upland, Where the brignt-red berries rest. Nor the pinks, nor the pale sweet cow- Slip It seemed to me the best. I once had a little brother. "With eves that were dark and deeo: In the lap of that old, dim forest TT lieth in neace. asleep: Light as the down of the thistle, Free as the winds tnat diow. We roved there the beautiful summers. The .summers of long ago. But his feet on the lills grew weary. And one of the autumn eves. I made for my little brother A bed of the yellow leaves. Sweetly his pale arms folded My neck in a meek emorace. . As the light of immortal beauty Silently covered his face; And when the arrows of sunset Lodsred in the treetops bright. He fell, in his saint-like beauty. Asleep by the gates or. ugnt, Therefore, of all the pictures That hang on Memory's wall. The one of the dim old forest Seemeth the best of all. Alice Cary. THE SHOEMAKER'S SONG. The shoemaker sang, as he hammered away: "O! who is as happy as I am today? I saved twenty soles where the parson saved one, And I always heel, where the doctor heals none. I sit on my bench like a judge, and I boot The people who say that my measure don't suit; My verv first pleasure each day is my last. I cut all my uppers, I care not .foi caste; I'm always mending when others fal! ill, And when I'm thirsty with cobblers 1 fill; I'll never peg out, for I always fill in: For how can I lose when I'm shoer tc win? My goods are all soled before finished and I Can foot my bill without heaving i sigh; In fact, I am envied by great and by small, For of this world's blessings alone J have awl." HUMOR O7 THE DAY "One must not confuse liberty witl license." "Xo; especially when thinking oi a marriage license." Life. "Everything I have in this world I owe to my wife." "I'm almost like you too.

The first steamboat on Lake Erie, , the Walk in the Water, was launched ' at Black Rock, a' short distance he low Buffalo, just 100 years ago. She made her maiden voyage from Buf falo to Detroit in the following August The citizens of Albany, X.
