of the country than all other diseases
put together, and for years it was sup

local remedies, and by constantly failing
to cure with local treatment, pronounced
it incurable. Catarrh is a local disease,
greatly influenced by constitutional con

"The Deemster"With Author's Son
in Leading RoleHere Friday
The Elko theater, in one of the
most important moving picture en
gagements ever made for this vicini
ty, announces that they will bring
Hall Caine's "The Deemster," in nine
acts, direct from its New York, Chi
cago and Minneapolis engagements to
the Elko theater on next Friday and
In addition to being what is con
ceded to be one of the most wonder
ful moving pictures ever made, "The
Deemster" has the extreme novelty of
Derwent Hall Caine, son of the
author, in the leading role.
Hall Caine, the most famous living
author, has written such books as
"The Christian," "The Eternal City,"
"The Bondsman," "The Manxman,"
"The Prodigal Son," "The Woman
Thou Gavest Me," and other famous
books, but overshadowing all others
in tremendous power, stands "The
"Deemster" as an overwhelming tri
umph in the great Manx writer's
The firm version of "The Deem
ster" has caught all the haunting and
pensive romances in Hall Caine's
gri old novel of conflicting passions
and bitter atonement, dominated by
the ceaseless voice of the sea. The
photographic effects are superbly
spectacular. More than 2,000 per
sons are in the cast. Beautiful Mar
ian Swayne is seen in the principal
female role. 1-828
