' Social at Kendrick
Under the proficient management
of Mrs. Bradford Webb,the members
of the Epworth League of Kendrick
gave a most enjoyable entertainment
at the hall last Friday evening. The
entire program was well carried- out
and most interesting. It consisted of
an unusually well adapted little play-i
ette, songs, recitations, etc., all of
which succeeded in engaging the at
tention of the large audience for ful
ly two hours. The children of the
Junior League assisted very material
ly in making the entertainment the
success it was. Too' much credit can
not be given Mrs. Webb, who so faith
fully works for the advancement of
the little town in which she lives, for
which labor, she feels weell repaid, in
the love and gratitude of the entire
community. 1

At the Temple This Evening
A dramatic triumph will be shown
at the Temple theater this evening,
written by C. Gardner Sullivan and
conceded to be the foremost ' of all
photoplay authors, starring the inim
itable Bessie Barriscale. "Those Whc.
Pay" offers a combination of star,
story and producer that is absolutely
unsurpassable. -
As Dorothy Warner, the pretty
shop girl, forced to solve the problem
of supporting herself and a baby sis
ter, on $10 a week, Bessie Barriscale
takes advantage of the very opening
scenes of the drama to draw her au
dience, heart and soul, into Sullivan's
wonderful story, and make them live
with her the tense, dramatic moments
which follow each other in quick suc
cession through her tragic career.
"Those Who Pay" stands out prom
inently as one of the truly great silent
dramas of screen history.
Mr. and Mrs. McKay and four little
daughters of Morriston have just re

With her mother's distinct disap
proval, Betty Van Ness became en
gaged to a very nice, but very poor
jyoung mai. He was only a sergeant
in the army, which was a bitter blow
to Mrs. Van Ness, whose other daugh
ter was about to many no less a per
son than a colonel a rich mlddle
iaged man old enough to be Althea's
"I'm more disappointed in you than
I can say," exclaimed Mrs. Van Ness,
a few days before Althea's wedding.
"Hee you are, rich, well dressed and
quite as good looking as , your twin
sister, and. yon have neglected your
advantages shamelessly I ; I refuse to
consider your marriage at all, unless
ou choose another man. You haven't
an atom of your, sister's common
sense !
v "I don't care a bit for worldly ad
vantages," flared the girL "Ned has
made his own way, I know, and I'm
proud of him for it !"
"We will not discuss the matter fur
ther now. You had better see if Al
thea's wedding gown has returned
from the dressmaker's there's not too
much time."
Betty went immediately, glad to have
the interview ended.
. When she entered Althea's room,
she found her sister, reading a maga
zine. A large unopened box lay on her
"Althea Van Ness I Do you mean to
!say you haven't looked at your dress 1
What a girl!"
Althea laughed. "Well, you see, the
story was interesting so I didn't both
er. I wish you'd slip it on, dear, and
.see if it fits. We're exactly the same
size and I'm so tired of trying things
on." .
Betty obeyed, and in a moment she
was a vision of snowy white and sil
ver. She looked at herself admiringly
in the glass.
"Oh, -dear," she sighed. Til never
look like this if mother has anything
to say about it, for I simply won't
marry anyone else !"
' The wedding was to be at eight
o'clock In the evening and by eight In
the morning of the great day, the
house began to show signs of. prep
aration, while .they were at the
lunch table, Colonel Gould came in,
greatly excited.
"Something ,very unforeseen has oc
curred," he began hurriedly. 1 have
the most urgent orders to leave this
afternoon and we will have to be mar
ried at once ! I cannot explain very
much, but it Is unavoidable and there
must be no delay. The minister Is in
the drawing room and Sergeant Moore
will act as best man. I met him down
at headquarters as I was leaving, and
brought him along. YouH forgive me,
please, Mrs. Van Ness, but he's a fine
young man, and It was Impossible to
find anyone else at this hour."
"I do not understand the army at
all," Mrs. Van Ness exclaimed indig
nantly. "They must have known it
would be a terrible inconvenience for
us I shall be mortified to death trying
to explain to people 1 Imagine it
hundreds of guests and no wedding!
It's the most impossible thing Fve ever
Mrs. Van Ness was fairly purple
with anger. The idea of making her
self , ridiculous was ' terrible to her
nothing could be worse!
The' ceremony was performed, how
ever, with Betty and Ned Moore as
'the only attendants and the entire
.party in morning dress. Then, with
everybody's help, Althea and the colo
nel made the five o'clock train for
(Washington and Mrs. Van Ness,
in a blind fury of rage and disappoint
;ment, gave way to helpless tear& '
"Only think of the guests," ehe
j stormed. "And no bride and groom 1
ilt's hopeless perfectly hopeless!"
Betty and Ned came back from the
j train, flushed with excitement. Even
Mrs. Van Ness had to admit that
She was a very good-looking young
jman. , -
i'lease, motner a ear, lec us uue
their places and be married to-night;
Please, please, please, mother!" Betty
knelt beside her mother's chair and
looked up at her imploringly. "Althea's
dress just fits me, and everyone will
be so surprised and so pleased and
they'll think you were so clever to
plan It all! Please, mother dear!"
j This was the final straw, and Mrs.
Van Ness had to give in. She: could
j not bear to have , all her plans upset,
jso she made the . concession.
"I've Just had a commission for sec
iond lieutenant, too, so It will sound
i better," added' Ned, and Mrs. Van
iNess actually held out her, hand and
congratulated him. ,
t "What a beautiful wedding!" ex
claimed one of the guests that eve
nlng. "And how charming the groom
jis quite an addition to the family!"
said someone else.
"Mrs. Van Ness always had good
itaste," added another. "This was so
'clever of her !"
; The next day Althea read the an
(nouncement to her husband, the colo
nel, and they laughed together.
: "If mother knew that you didn't
have to go yesterday, wouldn't - she
be wild! Think of It going off so
beautifully, and Betty so happy about
it, too. You're a good colonel, George,
and Tm glad you settled that battle so
well for us all."
And the success of the wedding was
so great that in a short time Mrs.

How France Has
Been Fed
"Before the war, a distin
guished French Officer, General
' Maitrot, wrote a scries of ar
ticles in the 'Echo de Paris' to
warn France, that in case of
war, the French meat industry
would be unable, to supply the
French army in the field with
fresh meat, c wing especially
to the lack of modern refriger
' ating plants and of refrigerating
transportation, --and too, owing
to the deficiency in the national
herd." --.V
"Since the war began the
French army has never been
short of fresh meat, thanks
mainly to. the prosperous condi
tion of the American meat in
dustry, and too, to the American
live stock breeders." -
The foregoing 'state
ment was made by a
representative of the
Allies now in the United
: Another representative
of the Allies said recently:
"that the American packers
have been of the greatest pos
sible assistance to the Allies
and have, by their efficient co
operation, contributed in the
utmost degree to the successful
prosecution of the war." i
