AN ABSORBING STORY One of the most absorbing stories ever projected upon the screen is "The Price She Paid." in which the popular Selznick-Pictures star, Clara Kimball Young, will be seen at the Elite The liter, tonicrht. This story, by David Graham Phillips, deals with the prob lems of a young woman who had al ways lived in luxury, and who finds herself practically penniless. It is not merely a few isolated dramatic inci dents, but srocs into the details of the life of the heroine, Mildred Gower, and her efforts to achieve independ pnee and save her own self-respect She marries for money, and finds her- eolf little more than a slave. With the aid of a former suitor she studies for an operatic career and again meets with many disappointments. At length she learns that there is no royal road to success, and giving up all her hah its of ease and luxury, plunges into a Snartan routine, and by sheer determ ination finally wins. It 1b discovered that she has not been legally married, as the husband she left had a wife still livine. and so she is free to make her life what she chooses. Miss Young has not, in a long time, had a role which affords such opportunity for beautiful costuming, and her charm of personality is revealed as it seldom has been in any of her work, for the screen. The director of "The Price She Paid" is Charles Giblyn, a new member of the Selznick forces.who has many successes to his credit.

The Baxter GRAINLESS "SUDS" Imitation Beer Also Goes Into Discard October 1 Washington, Sept. 19. Use of any foodstuffs except barley, malt and hops in the brewing of beer and near beers, after next October 1, is prohib ited by a proclamation signed today by President Wilson. The president pre viously had ordered the brewing of all beer stopped next December 1. The proclamation signed today was not made public nor did the food ad ministration issue any statement ex plaining the conditions which had caused it to recommend the action to the president It was understood, however, that the purpose was to con serve stocks of corn and rice, which in recent years have been largely sub stituted for barely in brewing. In announcing the new order food administration officials said today that even after the breweries are shut down December 1. they will have on hand in their vats sufficient stocks of beer to last from two to six months. The sale of this will not be prohibited. An Englishman has invented a pocket case for fountain pens that rings an alarm bell should a man go away from his desk and forget to take his pen with him. Among a bunch of German prison ers somewhere in France there was a cavalry officer in a resplendent uni form. He was walking to and fro, dis daining to associate or even to speak to some infantry officers, and his glances at the German privates indi cated that he considered them no bet ter than swine. There are instances where German officers who are wounded and taken prisoners refuse to be placed dn the same ambulance With wounded German privates. Can any American imagine General Per shing being to "toplofticaT as to re fuse to ride in an ambulance with a wounded American private, or any of our officers being so foolish. Archie Roosevelt refused to have his wounds dressed until the wounds of the pri vate soldiers in the same hospital were first attended to. These incidents show that the war is truly between autocracy and democracy. HUNTERS REQUIRED TO OBSERVE LAW OF MIGRATORY BIRDS Washington, D. C, Sept 19. In making their plans to shoot migratory waterfowl, hunters will do well to note the dates of open seasons under both Federal and State laws. This cau tion by the United States Department of Agriculture results from evidence of -confusion in the minds of some sportsmen in regard to the opening of the season when the dates conflict un der State and Federal lawa. The Federal law and regulations limit the seasons before and aftes which no one may shoot these birds. If a State law opens the season lat er or closes it earlier than the dates prescribed by the Federal regulations the season in that state is just so much further shortened. Special at tention is called to the fact that the Federal regulations do not authoriie any one to hurt or kill migratory birds contrary to the State law. In certain states, as for example, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas. Ken tucky, Missouri and South Dakota, the season for ahooting migratory birds under the State law would open prior to the date of opening under the Federal regulations were it not for the fact that the Federal regulations sup ersede State laws in such case of con flit and prescribe for these States September 16 aa the beginning of Jhe open season. w w at A woman is the mve'ntor of a leg less table, which ia suspended from the 'ceiling and steadied by a central pillar extending to the floor. irM TWrV Wade of Suanyikn 'was Daxter viaitot Wednesday.

Congressman Campbell, from this district made a ten minute speech in the House last Friday on the recent peace feeler sent out by Germany. He very clearly expressed the sentiments of his constituents. The following is taken from the Congressional Record: Mr PAMPnPT.T. nf Kansas. Mr. Chairman, the German vice chancellor in his Stuttgart speech yesterday made a plea for peace without victory and without indemnities. He also urged that the peace be negotiated be. tore the auieu armies reacn uerman soil. There can be no such peace. (Applause.) Peace must follow a vic tory that is so complete that no gov ernment or people will ever again con template the conquest of the world. (Applause.) Nothing in the progress of human history has ever been of such moment to mankind as a complete military vic tory by the allied armies over the armies under the outlaw Government of Germany, and this victory should and shall be won on the German side of the Rhine. (Applause.) Prussian autocracy, the outlaw Government that now disgraces civilization, must be destroyed upon the soil that bears the shame of its birth and punishment imposed and indemnity required that is suited to all 'its crimes against hu manity. This work now presses forward and gives glorious promise of immense ac complishment Our military and nav al forces are doing their part of the work; shells are reaching German soil; our soldiers are on their way to Ber lin; (Applause.) When the military victory that is now in sight is com plete, then the round table. And it is not inopportune to say that the most important international mnttora fhnt have ever been the Sub ject of parley or engaged the attention oi nations unu iiivcriiniauiuu iuhwicu will he ronaidnred at the neace confer ence at the close of the war. The al lies, as victors, will award the honors, assess the damages, and apportion the benefit nf the most stunendous war in the history of civilization. Ques tions affecting ror centuries mo wel fare of the nations involved and of all mankind will be considered and set tled there. It ia in no aense diBnararine to oth er nations to say that our own country will have large interests to conserve at that conference. In our case the welfare of 110,000,000 of people and of their posterity for centuries is in volved. A great estate is affected. The wnrV. therefore, of Drenarina for the peace table becomes important whether the victory snail oe mis year, next year, or the year after. Who shall sit at that table for usl It will be no place for mediocrity or inexperi ence. The most accomplished interna tional statesman today living in .Eur ope and Asia will be seated there as the representatives of government participating in the war. There can be no impropriety in now sugveating that the ablest and most experienced men in our Republic be asked by the President to hold themselves in readi ness and to prepare themselves for that stupendous task. In this eon nantinn i wnnlH like to sea our livinir ex-Presidents, the Chief Justice of our Supreme Court, our. secretary oi State, our former living ambassadors u.fcn tiave -aerveil in Fumnoftn and Asiatic courts with rare distinction and great ability, and the chairmen and ranking members of the Commit tees on Foreign Affairs in both House and Senate all members of that great commission.
