HATCH.” The Famous Players Film Co. adds an other brilliant star to its notable constel lation of stage lights, in adding Henrietta Grosman to its gallery of famous players. This distinguished dramatic artiste ap pears in “The Unwelcome Mrs. Hatch,” the Famous Players current release. “The Unwelcome Mrs. Hatch,” the famous emotional drama by Mrs. Burton Harrison, analyzes and criticizes the little mistakes and misunderstandings that so often arise between husband and wife, and that eventually result in a widened and unbridgeable gap that only too often divides the trail forever. The production does not alone establish a common fault, but contrary to the con struction of most problem plays also in dicates a remedy, and illustrates in the particular case treated in the play that generosity and tolerance next to mother love and sacrifice, are the two greatest human traits. The production is mounted with the utmost care, and the settings, details and suggestions of emotion and dramatic in tensity are wrought with a timely and appropriate attention that further ex tends the interest in the central charac ters and those who assist their develop ment. Henrietta Grosman in “The Unwel come Mrs. Hatch” is bound to impress and thrill motion picture audiences throughout the world. WEDNESDAY, JULY 2CTH. “MARTA OF THE LOWLANDS” After her supreme triumphs in “Monna Vanna” and “The Kreutzer Sonata,” much is expected of the noted actress, Mme. Bertha Kalich, in the film produc tion of ‘‘Marta of the Lowlands,” and much is forthcoming. Strong as are the previous vehichles for the display of her wonderful abilities, it is doubtful if they , gave her such opportunities as are afford- | ed her in the role of Marta. So earnest, I so sincere is Mme. Kalich in its presenta tion that one can readily understand the conditions that exist in the land of mas ter and man depicted in the play, where body and soul are the property of the owner of the lands. Marta, the waif, brought to ruin by the master who loves her with all the passion and brutality of his type, and who latter forces her to marry a simple, untutored shepherd that he himself may wed a rich woman, whose money is need ed to save his lands, is a character that calls for the most intense variations of human emotions. Mme. Kalich knows well the powersof the face, and each passing emotion is pictured there before her action gives life to her thoughts, Hjr eyes, always one of the distinctive charms of this ar tiste, suggest every passing phase of the character. She sways her audiance with little tenderness and sudden, terrific dis plays grief or rage or fear that arouse one to a realization that one is witness ing something real and terrible —for what is more terrible than the destruction of the most sacred thing in life? She tells the story of her life and Rs tragedy mercilessly and with tremendous feeling, and she exposes the nerves and quivering tissues until we see life with her tear-stained eyes and understand with her burdened heart. Advertisement Taking Big Chances. It is a great risk to travel without a bottle of Chamberlain’s Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, as this prepara tion cannot be obtained on the trains or Steamships. Attacks of bowel complaint are often sudden and very severe, and everyone should go prepared for them. Obtainable everywhere. AdvartiMmant. Tour A Great Success. Trip Void of Accident And Enjoyed By Many Pilgrims. Many novel and interesting schemes have been used by the church people of Thurmont to raise money, but the “Tour of the World’’ offered by the young la dies of St. John’s Lutheran church Tues day evening, perhaps surpassed all others thus far used. Included in this tour was the city of Boston, our own seaport, the home of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Lohr, where tourists were greeted by “Uncle Sam’’ and lis tened to children singing patriotic airs while partaking of a good dish of Boston baked beans and a sandwich before em barking for foreign countries. Eating at your leisure was not the rule, lest the boat leave without you. With the taste of the last bean lingering and a tiny flag in your hand, hair or coat, the tourist hasten aboard and the boat leaves for the far distant Japan. We land; our voyage being pleasant. At the door of the great tea house, the residence of Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Weller, we are welcomed by Prince Knarf Rellew arrayed in oriental costume who examines our passport and admits us to the tea room provided with cushions on all sides. Here we are given a cup of delicious ice tea and rice cakes. A few minutes is left to examine the magnifi cent interior decorations of this mansion, the lunch being easy to put away. Each per-1 son is given a souvenir sack of rice. Hut we didn’t come to stay and haste to our boat once more. Honk, konk, and we are off, Ireland, the beautiful home of Mrs. 11. C. Foreman, being our objec. tive point. We get there, land safely on the green lawn and are ushered into a green lunch room, entrance however be ing permitted after kissing the renowned Blarney Stone and having our passport examined by Patrick Howdy O’DeMuth. Much shamrock was hung about the room and sweet voices of pretty Irish maidens singing “My father and mother were Irish’’ were heard, while the tourists feasted on potato salad and quenched their thirst with a glass of cold butter milk. This Irish home was not without its pig, his eminence having a place on the front porch. He did the grunting for those who did not care to alarm their companions. Here some of the tourists were in formed the boat had lost time and a hasty departure for Germany, the home of the Misses Powell and the little Ger man band, was made. Whether the boat was late or whether the captain was anxious to get to Germany we know not, but after arriving we found this home amply supplied with cheese (not hmbur ger) sandwiches and black coffee as a stimulant, the Rev. Herr Samuel Powell acting as inspector. One more country, Iceland, the home of the Misses Wisotzkey, to be visited before starting on the homeward journey. The harbor being icy it was with difficulty our boat was anchored. Safely across the gang plank, we rush for a lunch room and on entering hear the great popular song “Brighten the Corner’’ and see the native ladies arrayed in frosted gowns. “Freeze each Corner” would have been a more suitable song at this resort, ice cream, cake and ice water being served. Mr. Russell Unger had charge of this resort. With a delightful chilly feeling we depart from this cold country for our own native land, arrive safely at home, retire and dream sweet dreams. To make this tour fourteen automo biles were used, each being loaded be yond capacity, and required to make about five round trips. The church was made the starting point and a grand rush was made for cars as they came in. Almost an hour was required to make the trip, the distance being about three and one-half miles, and more than three hours consumed hauling the tourists. The homes representing the various countries and the ladies serving were decorated and gowned in colors appropri ate to each. The committee in charge is well pleased with the success of the entire program. Social Item. That which would have been one the most congenial and successful social functions held in the Town Hall for a long time, was slightly marred on last Thursday evening by the Creagerstown orchestra not appearing, the cause for which has not yet been explained. However, in spite of down pouring rain the 75 guests present, of the 90 ex pected, report having a most enjoyable time, due to the kindness of the young lady musicians and four members of our own town orchestra who all “in time of need proved friends indeed.” A victrola also added to the musicale program. Dancing, of course, was the principle attraction of the evening; cards, too, were in evidence. Seasonable refresh ments in abundance were served, the favors being especially enjoyed by all. As the orchestra engaged did not fur nish the music there was a surplus of ($10.00) ten dollars, which was presented to Mr. Chas. D. Shaffer to use as he see’s best, for the interests of the home tow orchestra—engaging said orceestra for another dance to be given in the hotest week of July one year hence. The cake that was not used was purchased by Mr. Paul Beard for his boys in camp. Had the weather been ideal this treat for the boys would not have been their pleasure. Many thank you’s are extehded to all who so willingly contributed to the suc cess and pleasures of the evening. Chamberlain's Cope, Cholera and Diarr hoea Remedy. Every family without exception should keep this preparation on hand during the hot weather of the summer months. Chamberlain’s Colic, Cholera and Dirr hoea Remedy is worth many times its cost when needed and is always certain to be needed before nhe summer is over. It has no superior for the purposes it is intended. Buy it now. Obtainable every where. Advertisement. Some Heavy Rains. Great Damage Done at Various Places. The week ending July 13th was gen erally fair, the temperature being high. Much discomfort was caused to peopb in large cities, but few deaths were report ed from the heat. In this immediate locality relief came last Thursday evening when a series of violent thunder storms passed over the county. About 7.30 o’clock a violent 1 storm broke over this place, lightning flashes being severe and destructive. A telephone pole standing in the driveway to Mr. Charles Gall’s residence, north of town, was struck, the current following the wire into the house and burning the wire into. Mrs. Gall was severely shocked. Another bolt struck the telephone line to the west of town and put Mackley Bros. ’ phone out of use, and another bolt struck a large locust tree standing to the rear of Mr. Joseph Liday’s residence on Walnut street. Neither rain nor wind was heavy at this time. Heavy clouds traveling from the south prevailed until Tuesday of this week and very heavy rains occurred in various localities from Thursday until Monday. Saturday afternoon the water in Hunt ing creek rose several feet, indicating that there had been a downpour on the mountains in the vicinity of Foxville. Saturday morning a heavy rain fell in Thurmont. Sunday evening a heavy rain fell at Pen-Mar, but none at this place. Last Thursday afternoon during storm, the Lutheran parsonage in Way nesboro, Pa., was struck by lightning, Rev. H. D. Potts and family were se verely shocked. Little damage was done the building. To the north of Waynes boro the storm was heavy, corn being blown flat and cut by hail. Destructive floods are reported occur ring Sunday in North Carolina, Tennes see and Virginia. Reports from Ashe ville, N. C., state “five known dead and property damage estimated at $10,000,- 000 re-'u I ted from a cloudburst and flood over Western North Carolina.” The flood waters invaded the Vanderbilt es tate, Biltmore, and it was at this place persons lost their lives. Bristol, Va.-Tenn., July 16.—Storms sweeping over the Blue Ridge last night and today let loose floods of water that put streams and rivers on the rampage as they had not been in 30 years. Eliza beth ton, Tenn., and other towns and villages were threatened, while various railroads have sustained washouts and slides, completely blocking traffic. East Radford, Va., July 16.—Swollen by the heavy rains of the past few days, New River rose 36 feet at this place to- j day, and tonight this city is in total I darkness. Thursday evening last considerable damage was done in Carroll county dur ing the passing of a thunder storm. A large barn on the farm of Mr. Edward Steele, four miles from Union Bridge, was burned; a barn near Sherman’s Church was struck and burned; the resi dence of Harry Oilman, Westminster, was struck, and a barn at “Montrose” j burned. Shame On Frederick. “Frederick staged a prize fight on the j evening of the Fourth of July and The j Frederick News gave liberal space and big headlines to the event. It must have been the genuine article for The News says it was a corking fight for blood and it seems to have been, for it speaks of one of the pugilists bleeding from the nose and mouth, his eyes bunged up, his face cut and his body sore, the other with his eye cut pelting his opponent un mercifully. In one of the preliminary bouts it says one of the fighters wont at his opponent like a whirlwind, jabbing him in the stomach, and in the third round with some stiff jabs knocked him out. The News says it set the crowd wild, with yells for knockouts, and they nearly took the roof off the Armory with their enthusiastic applause of approval of the brutal degrading performance. At the conclusion the promoter an nounced it was likely there would be an other bout in the Armory in a short time. For Highlandtown, Jack Flood, the Gaiety Theatre, and like places to be al. lowed to hold these debasing exhibitions is quite bad enough, but for Frederick, a city of churches and Christian citizens, rich and proud of her history, the rest ing place of the author of our great na tional anthem, to permit on our great National holiday, the Fourth of July in an Armory built by the State’s money, for more glorious and noble purposes, a brutal, blighting, degrading, demoraliz ing affair such as The News describes, is enough to make the old town with her “clustered spires” blush with shame. Surely the good people of Frederick will protest against more of these affairs and if they have no ordinance against prize fights should insist on one and also ap peal to the State authorities, to prohibit the use of the Armory for exhibitions of this character.” —Westminster Times. Loys Letter. Mrs. Hankey, of Gettysburg, is visit ing her daughters, Mrs. Ella Hoffman and Mrs. Ethel Hoffman. Miss Edith Tressler, of Lewistown, spent Sunday with her mother, Mrs. Samuel Martin.

Biliousness and Stomach Trouble. “Two years ago I suffered from fre quent attacks of stomach trouble and bil iousness, ” writes Miss Emma Verbryke, Lima, Ohio.
