ENTERTAINMENT PLEASES
The Gypsy Queen operetta given by
Mrs. Memminger-Keith on Tuesday
evening belongs to the same high or
der of performance which Mrs. Keith's
entertainments always have. The op
eretta itself is bright and pretty from
beginning to end and the parts
well taken it goes to show that we
have some exceptionally good talent
among our high school girls and
younger children.
The scene opens upon a group of
gypsy girls making merry because
their queen, Old Mother Grouch, is
away in the city. They do a series of
pretty songs and dances. Mother
Grouch returns, bringing with her
forlorn little waif she has kidnapped
in the city. The gypsies tease and
threaten the little girl until she is
sent sobbing to bed in the tent.
During the stillness of the night
Jimmie Leggs escapes but loses her
way in the forest. The little gypsies
come out to dance in the moonlight
and discover her. They are much puz
zled to know who and what she is and
call the Dwarf to help them find out.
While the dwarf is dancing a merry
little jig, Jimmie Leggs wakes up,
She tells him she is lost. He calls in
fairies to help her. They entertain
her till day breaks and send the Bat
to guide her on her way back to the
city.
There is great consternation in the
gypsy camp in the morning when they
find the little waif gone. The play
closes with an artistic dance by the
snake charmer and chorus.
Those playing the parts were: Jim
mie Leggs, little Ellen Lytle; Old
Mother Grouch, the Gypsy Queen, and
the Snake Charmer, Miss Hazel Hurd
The Gypsies, Misses Ruth Knowles
Vera Shoemaker, Signa Mattison,
Gladys Poole, Rose Kocker, Rosabel

FARM BUREAU SHORT
COURSE NEXT WEEK
(Continued from page 1)
speakers at the farm bureau short
course, will explain in detail the cam
paign launched to put an end to the
scrub sire.
The campaign which has as its aim
the enrollment of livestock men in the
ork of producing better grades of
livestock, was started in the United
States last October and is already re
turning interesting figures. Work in
Montana was delayed for -many rea
sons, although interest among live
stock men has been keen since the
movement was first started.
The stockgrower who signs one of
the government blanks promises to
use only purebred sires on his farm or
ranch. While the government holds
that such practice will eventually lead
to purebred females, it is not urging
the use of purebred females in the
present campaign to any extent great
er than the ability of the individual
easily to provide them.
To each Montana farmer and stock
grower who enrolls in the campaign
and thereby promises to use nothing
but purebred sires in the future, will
be given an emblem, furnished jointly
by the government and the state.
The emblems are granted generally
upon the day that the enrollment is
received and will become the "lodge
button" of America's leading stock
growers.
The use of purebred sires appears
to lead automatically to the owner
ship of a considerable quantity of
purebred female stock, says a state
ment from Washington upon the sub
ject of the "Better Sires-Better Stock."
The use of purebred sires appar
enlty results also in the culling out
of scrub females, judging from the
small proportion of scrub females to
grade, cross-bred, and purebred fe
male animals owned by purebred sire
users.
Of all female stock owned by per
sons enrolled in the better sires cam
paign at the end of the year 71 per
cent were purebred, 26 per cent were
grades and cross-breds, and 3 per cent
were scrubs.
The scrub females are believed to
be the remnants of former inferior
stock before purebred sires were used,
since purebred sires lead automatical
ly to either purebred, crossbred or
grade offspring, depending on the
blood lines of the females used.
STRIKING SCENERY IN
"THE MIRACLE MAN
From the sordid slums of New
York's Chinatown to the grandeur
of high mountains and the majesty
of the ocean—that is the range of the
setting in "The Miracle Man," a big
new Paramount-Artcraft picture, pro
duced by George Loane Tucker, which
coming to the Orpheum theatre
February 18-19. The same expansive
ness of vision is reflected in the ab
sorbing story, written by Frank L,
Packard, later dramatized by George
M. Cohan, and produced with striking
success on Broadway.
The central figure is a white-haired
patriarch, who lives in the hills near
the sea and who has reputed power
to heal the sick and crippled. Tom
Burke and his band in their haunt
in the New York underworld read of
his miracles and conceive the idea of
capitalizing them for their own gain
So they go to the town where the old
man lives and frame up a miracle
for him. To their surprise, they dis
cover that he really possesses the
healing powers accredited to him.
Gradually the beneficent influence
of their new environment there
worked a transformation in the hearts
of the crooks that makes Rose, the
gangster's beautiful decoy, the charm
ing girl she is at heart, that evolves
a farm hand out of a dope fiend, and
finally, brings out the better nature
of even the hardened, sophisticated
Tom Burke himself. In the hands of
such capable artists as Thomas Meigh
an, Elinor Fair, Joseph J. Dowling,
Betty Compson and others of similar
merit, this powerful story becomes a
vital, living thing and one of the great
est dramatic spectacles the screen
has yet revealed.
TO MEN OF AMERICA.
(By Rose Trumbull)
You talk of your breed of cattle,
And plan for a higher strain,
You double the food of the pasture,
You heap up the measure of grain;
You draw on the wits of the nation,
To better the barn and the pen;
But what are you doing, my brothers,
To better the breed of men?
You boast of your Morgans and Here
fords,
Of the worth of a calf or a colt,
And scoff at the scrub and the mon
grel,
As worthy a fool or a dolt;
You mention the points of your road
ster,
With many a "wherefore" and
"when,"
But, ah, are you conning, my brothers,
The worth of the children of men?
And what of your boy? Have you
measured
His needs for a growing year?
Does your mark as his sire, in his
features,
Mean less than your brand on £
steer?
Thoroughbred—that is your watch
word,
For stable and pasture and pen;
But what is your word for the home
stead ?
I Answer, you breeders of men!
