"The Little Boy Scout"
Ann Pennington, the winsome little
d.-nier of the "Follies," returns again
to the screen In the Famous Players
Piramount, production "Tr.e Little
Boy Scout," a charming photoplay fur
nisit'ng the ".u". ; litive star with
more than ordinary opportunity to
display her special talents.
In "The Little Boy Scout" she ap
pears as a rebelious niece of old
Miguel Alvarez, living with his family
near the Uio Grande in Mexico. The
old uncle is a miser and a tyrant and
attempts to force her to marry his
weakling son in order to bring her
money into his own coffers.
Justina, however, has the American
love of liberty, inherited from her
mother,, who was a New Englander,
and on the very eve of her wedding
she huns away on the donkey of the
priest who had been summoned to
Her adventures from that point
form a sequence of events both hum
orous and dramatic that hold the on
looker breathless. How she stumbles
right on to a I'nited States army en
campment, how her donkey betrays
her presence by vigorously braying,
how the soldiers help her make way
to her mother's sister in New Eng
land and what happens when she gets
there is shown with all the charm
and piquancy which only Ann Pen
nington could give It.
As ' a Pennington picture without
dancing is as unthinkable as a Zieg
feld Follies without Ann Pennington,
many hundred feet of this five reel
feature have been devoted to scenes
wherein the sprightly Pule star
"trips the light fantastic."
Permission was given by the scout
master general of New York city to
the Famous Players company to use
Company No. KiO, and the boys, de
lighted at the chance of appearing on
the screen, thoroughly tenjoyed the
"Her Strange Wedding."
Fannie Ward, the well known star
of stage and screen who appears ex
clusively in Lasky-Paramount pictures
and who has steadily increased in
popularity since her early appearance
in "The Cheat," is now appearing in
"The Strange Wedding."
This is a story of a young society
girl who is In love with a doctor. They
are about to be married when Lee,
the doctor's young scapegrace bro
ther, appears upon the scene under
the cloud of a crime of theft which
he had committed and for wlr-h the
detectives are searching for him. As
the doctor's time is very much occupi
ed with his work, the younger brother
iis left to take care of Coralie and
soon wins her affections.
They confess to the doctor, and just
as they are being married a detect've
appears and threatens Lee with ex
posure unless he is bribed. Lee, des
perate, steals a diamond bracelet and
manages to avoid suspicion, for the
detective's crookedness is discovered
and he recalled. But Coralie finds
the bracelet in h' suit case, and it is
with the greatest difficulty that he is
able to explain its presence satisfac
torily. Max, not dreaming that the honey
mooning couple would sail for Hono- j
lulu, takes passage on the same boat,
and the three meet on deck, where a
terrific quarrel ensues between the
two brothers. Lee shoots lr. Max
and, believing him dead, rushes to
Coralie, when just as he takes her in
Irs arms Max's face appeals at the
The shock is too great for Lee's
weak heart, and he dies. Coralie, un
derstanding all, realizes that her in
fatuation had been a great mistake
and that, after all, it had always been
Max whom she respected and loved.
The story of Captain Mason's
"Four Feathers," concerns Harry
Feversham, son of General Feversham
who, at a banquet at his father's homo,
hears stories of war, death and tor
ture and fears that he, when put to
the test, cannot "make good. When
war Is declared he resigns his com
mission in the army. Three of his
comrades send him white feathers,
the symbol of cowardice, and his
fiance, who sees him receive them,
adds a fourth from her fan.
Slung by this Feversham drops
from s'ght. Secretly goes to Egypt,
where the war is being fought be
tween the English and Arabs uvt in
disguise as a Greek, he recovers lost
documents of great value, rescues
from death and torture each of his
three comrades and forces from
them such recognition of his heroism
that they demand the return of then
He tells them simply: "Take them
to her," and finally on his return to
England she is waitiing for her
feathers and a wedding-ring.
Earle Williams 'n "The Hawk."
Adopted from the celebrated play
which had such a successful run on
Broadway this screen drani i is made
attractive more human and more
highly geared from an action stand
point than it could ever be on the
It visualizes situations that strike
fire in the experiences of all people,
and has such a finely developed
dramatic impulse so clutching a
heart interest that it Is hound to bo
one of the strikingly realistik' feature
pictures of the year.
If you make the final test of the
pictures you see whether they satis
fy or not "The Hawk" will meet
your heartiest approval. Adt.

Family Food Patriots.
In an open letter to V. S. Food Ad
ministrator, Hoover the editor of the
American Cooperative Journal tells
of food conservation broached by a
family or five on an Indiana farm. In
addition to operating lfiO acres, doing
most oT the work himself, the hus
band helped with the garden and the
heavier part of the housework.
The wile managed the house, doing
all of her cooking, sewing and wash
ing, raised 125 pure bred chickens
and put up canned goods as follows;
111 quarts of fruits, 84 jars of Jams
and jellies. 120 quarts of radish, 72
quarts of vegetables. An abundant
winter supply of potatoes, squash,
cabbage, beets, popcorn, etc., was
This work was the result of an
agricultural S-honr day, four hours in
the forenoon and four hours in the
afternoon. The editor states that
when the true and full record of the
nation is finally wrMton, when the
last battle has been fought, great
praise will be due those who have
fought the battles in the kitchens,
the garden patches and on the farms.
We have our counter part in the
little rema ning band of Kuiaha home
steaders on Maui. These seem to
have caught the spirit of patriotism
as is recorded of this Indian farmer
family. We have in mind not less
than a half score of these in family
units of s'x, five, four, three, two and
several men and a fine woman
batchelor, who are doing their patri
otic bit as quietly and splendidly as
our unknown Indiana friends.
Withal, (and this i.s why you have
not known of them before,) we do
nol recall having heard any shouting
or bewailing, nor to have seen any
banners flying except our emblem
unfurled by Ktraha breezes high on
the staff set by the little school house
on the knoll. F. G. K.
LUMBER CUT LAGS
Because of strikes and other un
settled conditions, the lumber pro
duction or the country In August was
18.5 percent, less than in the same
month last year. Shipments, however
were fi.fi percent, greater, because of
the heavy demand for building mater
ial by the government and for factory
construction. During the eight
months ended Aug. 31, the 701 mills
reporting to the National Lumber
Manufacturers' Association cut 2.7
percent, less than in the same months
in 191G, but they shipped 7.5 percent,
more. The total, production of lum
ber of all kinds will be, according to
estimates made recently, 38,000,000,
000 feet in the current year. Engi
