It is a policy that has been followed by this organization I | for years. You get the benefit in Roller Champion f “The flour the best cooks use” But though the wheat we buy is the best thut can he had for money, if our process of milling demands that even more he done. The wiieat ! ; is scoured. Those who have seen this operation call it sanitary laun dering. It is enough to say here that each individual kernel comes out ready to be milled, spotlessly, shiningly clean. Each variety is milled separately and carefully watched, then they are blended, a certain quantity of this, certain amount of that until the result is a perfectly milled flour, successrtil in every purpose to which any flour may be put. Consequently it is more economical and satisfactory to use than any other you can buy. YOUR DEALER HAS IT W. M.

Vaughn, in Columbus, Misa Music at the “Movies” and a Word About the Artiste V/ho Manipulates the “Bartola Grand” at “Oaeon Two" - ! nBy HOLI.Y DALRYMPLK S my friend. Mr. Alan Dale, says: “I'm In a dreadfully ‘movie’ mood today; all wrought up as it were." I've been talking "movie" and think ing “movie" and seeing “movies" so much lately that I feel I must unburden myself. Perhaps in my investigation T have unearthed a few state secrets which f shall proceed to.give away with my usual sublime generosity and altruism. The ‘‘movie’’ situation appears to be causing so much discussion that it is really worth investigating. “My friend, who goes to the movies.” said the other day that one of the things that she had never been able to get over was the music at the picture shows. She hates "canned" stuff of every va riety like she hates tangoing, Robert W. Chambers, fat people, comic supplements, parsnips, the “white slave" agitation, teething babies and other incomprehen sible performances. “I agree with you," 1 said after a bit because as usual T am with the minority, ind "my friend who goes with me to the movies ' is nothing if not “the mi nority." "All sorts of strange piano players." she said. "Mechanical players, I mean, lueer sounding tin panny things, get on my nerves, and it is the chief reason that nas kept me away from the movies so ong." "Which reminds me that I can illus rute your attitutde by a perfectly good ioke." I added. “Is It an old one?" she asked curiously. "Jokes never are the worse to me be cause of age," T replied haughtily, ‘which singularly may he a distinct irawback when a husband tells them, )ut not when emanating from another lource. But to my beloved joke; it is me of my oldest and best-est, friends n jokeland. and if it had as many whis cers as times I’ve told it Mr. Peiffer of Kansas would have been outclassed in hat line long ago. it has to do with the flat dweller’ who complained because his leighbor played 'Cadenzas.' When he i vas commenting upon this situation to a 'riend of his the friend promptly said: I But that is a very difficult thing to do.’ j ^’hereupon the flat dweller replied Mif-! ’lcult; I wish it were impossible.' This inecdote I take it represents your atti- j ude toward the music you generally iear at the ‘movies,’ doe6 it not?" “Precisely.” she replied, "and moreover might add that my own feeling about luch things is like Mr. Gelett Burgess eeling about purple cows, (slightly para ihrased). ‘I'd rather see than hear one.' •Tow you know my attitude, don’t you?" "Go with me 'round to the Odean Two nd hear the pretty brown-eyed girl play he Bartlola Grand." I invited, "and see f you won't change your mind. I’ll prom se you a real treat. The young woman an play—really play. She knows some hlng about music and she uses her head s well as her bands In the manipulation C the big ‘Bartola Grand,’ and makes the nusic a feature, rather than a draw ia«*k to the pictures." Wc went and heard Mrs. Smith play, for hat Is the clever lady's name. We sat hrough one show twice, which was sort if cheating the management to be sure, nit we did just the same, and I’m mak ng an honest confession about it, which nay be good for the soul, but bad for he reputation, but as I said, we did, and njoyed every minute of the performance. Mrs. Smith, which isn’t definite enough, of course, because the “Smiths,” like Heinz’s pickles, come in ”57 varieties,” or more, and this one, Mrs. Harry Tucker ! Smith, is one of the very nicest and most i talented of the entire lot. , Mrs. Smith is a Connecticut girl, and has studied music all her life and taught, too, • although she said so after the show was over, when 1 was chatting with her about how she manipulates the big instrument ’round at Odeon Two, 1 could scarcely be 1 lieve it. because she looks like a mere girl now. Mrs. Smith Is as pretty as a picture, which I may say en passant, for the bene ’ fit of people who hear her $ay and only see her back, for hour after hour she ! sits in front of the big instrument, never stopping, never lagging, never seeming to grow tired, but always playing with a dash and style that is attractive. “Yes.” said Mrs. Smith. ”1 taught the organ in a girls’ college in Virginia for three years, and I have studied music ever since J was a little tiny girl. I love the pipe organ especially and have made a specialty of it. I couldn’t play the Bartola grand if T didn't have a thor ough knowledge of the organ.” “You see, the instrument is a combina tion of the piano and the organ.” she continued, "and requires a complete un derstanding of both instruments to play It properly. The left hand play.s the piano, and the right tne organ. The reg istration is the same as on any large pipe oargan and as good effects can be pro duced by the correct handling of it as on any large instrument. I enjoy playing it because it gives me a very wide scope in the selection of my music. Of course, I try always to make the music match the pictures. For instance, if the picture is light and frivolous I play ragtime inufidc, but I do not care for this style fit all. L like more serious pictures, some thins/ melo-dramatic, like ‘The Cup of Life.* which J regard as the best picture I have ever seen on the him. I played t perhaps the best musical programme I have ever presented during the production of that picture. Many clasical numbers were introduced. There is a rare art in choosing apropos music for the different pictures.” "Were you given lessons on the Bar tola grand?” f asked, "or did you merely pick it up yourself?” "When the instrument was installed,” Mrs. Smith replied, "Mr. Abernathy was looking about for some one to play it, and I was suggested, so T accepted the offer and at one® began to learn it. I found no difficulty whatever and have thoroughly enjoyed it.” o ‘‘Do you ever have a change to enjoy ) the pictures, or do you have an oppor- ' tunity to give any particular attention to them?” "I enjoy them thoroughly and feel that every film actor is a warm persona! friend of mine,” said Mrs. Smith. '1 see them so often that r almost feel as if I had a speaking acquaintance with them.” y Adriatic Sails New York, August 4.—Ten Americans were among the 19i> passengers aboard the White Star liner Adriatic which sailed Tate today for Liverpool. The Adriatic carried a full cargo estimated at 18,000 tons, a considerable part of which Is composed of war material and munitions. A Practically Perfect Preparation. "Y^ARS experience have enabled Mr. Fletcher to make Castoria a practically perfect preparation. These years of labor: the amount of money required to introduce its merits to the public: the investment in its manufacture, including the most modern machinery, mean a vast amount of invested capital. It follows that the greatest care is exercised in the selection of each ingredient, and the greatest attention is paid to every detail of its preparation. The result is the practically perfect preparation in the finished product; Fletcher’s Castoria. Herein lies the guarantee of the absolute safety in the use of Fletcher's ft Castoria for the baby, and the warning against irresponsible makers of imitations and counterfeits. The signature of Chas. H. Fletcher that is printed in black on the wrapper and red on the bottle is the mother’s safeguard. ^ Exact Copy of Wrappar.
