said Mr. Moore. "The cattle was not

fact that such prominent cattle
growers have bought for the future is
indication of the faith f experts in

turned loose on the company's range

"More cause for optimism In Co

"The Cow Testing association of

the dairy farmers in more than one
way," said J. E. - Robinson, deputy
state dairy commissioner yesterday.
"It not o4ily determines for the owner
of a herd the value of each indi
vidual cow as a producer and non
producer, but through the columns of
The Republican every dairyman In
the district may know what average
production is being reached by the
herds tested. This is encouraging a
desirable rivalry among the dairy
men to excel and dispose of unprof
itable cows and herds.
"The uncertainty of the cotton
market and crop has caused many
farmers to 'go back to the old cow'
and a goodly number of fine herds
have been brought into the valley the
past few months. It is encouraging
to see the big milk trucks speed again
through the country to and from the
creameries, carrying the dairy prod
ucts and lending activity to the scene
and money to the farmer's pockets.
'We can look for more complete
prosperity when &e can keep all four

"The cement roads have cut down

with more cows the farmer will find

"Garments of Truth" Strand
For a two-days engagement Gareth
Hughes comes to the Strand, starting
today, to offer his latest Metro pic
ture. "Oarments of Truth." It is a
production heightened by the charm
of romance, while introducing a vein
of humor and qualntness. elements
in which Oareth Hughes is not sur
passed by any actor now appearing
cn the silver sheet. ' His success in
this class of work has been nothing
short of phenomenal. Serving at the
mainstay in the supporting cast for
several of Viola Dana's pictures, he
electrified the entire country by his
'wonderful presentation of the title
role in John S. Robertson's produc
tion of "Bentlmental Tommy" for
Paramount. His advance to stardom
by Metro has proven conclusively a
reward for meritorious effort, and his
Initial starring picture proves that
producing concern made no mistake
in the selection.
The theme of "Gaments of Truth"
has to do with a lad whose imagina
tion often got the better of his judg
ment, and he told "wild stories with
himself nearly always as the central
character. The crux of his career
came with big report the dam above
the town had broken. Panic reigned,
Urror was everywhere, and then In
vestigation proved it was but another
hoax of the lad. But It brought the
necessity of his receiving medical at
tention, and the young chap was
carted away to Boston for treatment.
The cure was complete, the ervtwhile
liar became the embodiment of truth,
and he blasted the hopes of the town's
receiving a monster sanitarium by
divulging the fact that the chosen site
was a malaria ridden swamp. The
harmless liar had become the harmful
agent of truth. Something had to be
dene, the cure must be reversed. The
medical specialist advised thin was
impossible, and here Is where the
ccmedy situations come thick and
fast. Trie romantic vein likewise get
full sway in the closing chapters of
the story, and blends nicely with the
subtle charm that underlies the com
plete structure.
Thursday will start the engagement
of "Babe" Ruth, appearing in "Head
in Home." This is the picture which
will give everyone in the city the op
portunity to see what the "colossus of
swat' looks like in action.
