Its theme is of Peace of Brotherhood. It traces the history of World Advancement from the Garden of Eden to the dawn of peace in the present year of our Lord. “The Birth of a Race” is shown in its progress down through the ages in scenes of peace, of war, of diplomacy and domestic happiness. It is one of the most graphic histories of the world ever presented for the enlightenment and entertainment of the people. In addition to this, the picture contains one of the finest modern stories ever pictured. It is the story of a truly American boy who married the girl of his choice, even though she was poor and he was rich. He went to work in the shop his father owned in order to prove his ability to make his own way. When the war came he and his young wife faced their problems as brave young Americans. The big test for the young man came when he learned that his father had been working for the German cause; in fact had won a decoration from the Kaiser. With its romance, its smiles, tears and thrills, this exceptional picture play carries us hack to the Garden of Eden, thence to Noah and the Flood, to Moses, to the Crucifixion, to Columbus, the Declaration of Independence, Lincoln and his Emam ipation Proclamation, to the great World War, and out into the sunshine of Peace, with a better understanding and a closer brotherhood between all races and nationalities.

SAVES STOCKMEN HUGE SUM In the Last Six Years “Old Ben” Has Killed 167 Mountain Lions and 66 Bears, Including Several Grizzlies. Washington, D. C. —Uncle Sam em ploys approximately three hundred professional hunters and trappers to exterminate predatory animals In the range country. Among these, the champion Hon hunter Is "Old Man Ben Lilly,” who at sixty-flve years of age still leads all the rest. He remains active, as daring and as certain In "drawing a bead” as any of his asso ciates, some of whom are young enough to be his grandchildren. Lilly is a giant for work. He Is able dully to tire out two or three sets of dogs In rounding up some range “varmint.” According to the bureau of biological survey, under which this extermination work Is done, Old Man Lilly In the last six years has killed 167 mountain Hons and 65 bears, Including several griz tlles. The official account, Just Issued, concludes: "Mr. Lilly Is unassuming and disinclined to talk about his expe riences, and on that account no ac curate record Is available concerning fds total number of scalps, but It la very large." Leads Temperate Life. Mr. Lilly attributes his' physical prowess and activity to his outdoor life and to the fact that he never used tobacco or Intoxicants of any kind. He furthermore has followed a fixed rule of never hunting on Sunday. This rule has given many wild animals being pursued a new lease of life through being able to make their “get-away” on tne Sabbath. On one occasion, however, he tracked a huge mountain lion for weeks through three states and finally cornered him. His hounds were beaten off and the beast attacked Lilly. His rifle was knocked from his hand.' Armed only with a 4-inch pock et knife, he battled for some time until one desperate plunge of this weapon at the animal’s heart reached It just as the hunter became -so exhausted that he fell beside the dead lion. The records assert that Mr. Lilly knows the range country so well and Is so familiar with the routes, habits and haunts of the lions that occasion ally he kills three within half an hour. He knows just where to set traps in the canyons and coves, while he is able to pick out the most advantageous spots to lie In ambush awaiting the approach of prowling beasts. Born of a good family enjoying prosperity, Lilly in his teens responded to the call of the wild and became a freelance hunt er. Loaded with a 60-pound pack, he broke his way through the Louisiana canebrakes in search of game, from bears to wildcats, f As a rule, every time his rifle cracked some animal dropped, and his fame as a sure shot has spread throughout Louisiana, Tex as. Arizona, New Mexico and northern Mexico. He was one of the guides selected to accompany the lute Colonel Roosevelt in his hunt In Louisiana which made the “Teddy Bear" famous. Terms SI.OO in Advance. His circle of friends among western ranchers is extensive and appreciative Saves Stockmen Huge Sum. On the accepted basis that a wolf kills SI,OOO worth of stock a year, a bear and mountain lion SSOO each, and that a coyote and bobcat each do SSC worth of damage, Lilly has saved the western stockmen a substantial amount. Altogether these predatory animal hunters have killed 70*713 such beasts in the last three years. The direct saving thereby is estimated at nearly $5,500,000 a year to the stock men of the Rocky Mountain section. The total kill consisted of 60,473 coy otes, 8,094 bobcats, 189 wolves, 201 mountain lions and 137 bears. The pelts of these animals sold for approx imately SIOO,OOO, which was used by the government to carry on the work. In addition to animals killed by trap ping and shooting, millions of rodents, prairie dogs, rabbits, foxes and wood cbucks have been destroyed by the carefully organized poisoning campaign conducted by the biological survey. Race of Boat Builders. The Irish from time immemorial have been boat builders, although the west coast mackerel fishermen, or the hake coast to the south, or the haddock fish eries on the southeast must be visited to understand tbe real ingenuity of the Irish native boat builder.
