Webster haa spent all their money In drink and Monroe gives them passage to the north, where Marjorle meets "Big" Baxter, a trafficker In women, who aids her brother. Believing him to be sincere. Marjorle welcomes his attention, but later when Monroe, who knows Baxter's real designs, hears plied, "my child is given the hest of nourishing; liquids. several times a day." "Milk?" queried the worker. "No. coftee." the mother rejoined. "Milk la germ infested and I was reliably Informed that coffee Is not. only nourishing for Infants, bat stimulating as well." When the women welfare work era had recovered from their sur prise, they induced the misled moth er to visit one of the diet kitchens, where she was Instructed properly ss to the proper nourishment for young children.

"A Rosebush of a Thousand Years," constituting the attraction at Moore's Strand Theater for the entire week. Nasi mova displays a vivacity and high spirit that contrasts with the more somber moods to which her admir ers have become accustomed. Th. story deals intelligently with the moral regeneration of a grisette of the Latin Quarter of Farla. At tracted to her by the rhythmic charm of her Bacchante Dance in a cabaret, a young artist engages Jo line as his model. In course of time there is related to him the legend of the rosebush within the walls of a nearby monastery which had never bloomed until a vision of the Ma donna had appeared in response to the earnest prayers of a penitent monk. When the artist and Jolina surreptitiously enter the monastery grounds and proceed with the de sired picture during* Vesper?, the penitent again appears and falls pros trate upon the ground at sight of the vision which he had seen years before. The rosebush It seems had not blossomed for several seasons, but bursts Into bloom shortly after Jolino had touched Its branches while posing.

Restaurants are being forced to Jbey the wheatless rule. Why should the householder be allowed to violate It With impunity?
