#AGE FOUR fat****** II 3* riuj.ii1111II 11 iiiiiii 'THE AFFAIRS OF ANATOL" AT ELKO THEATER TONIGHT Cecil B. DeMille, perhaps the fore- & most motion picture producer in the !i ^country, if not in the world, displayed his genius at its best in his latest Paramount picture, "The Affairs of Anatol," which was presented with splendid effect at the Elko theater last night. From every standpoint investiture, its all-star cast, supmtu ousness ii settings, brilliance of xii rectjorial execution, richness of cos tumes, quality of story and general artistry, this picture marks a distinct epoch in screen production of the decade. The story deals with an impres sionable young man of wealth who finds time .to interest himself in the affairs of others and who learns by practical experience that it pays to attend to one's own affairs and let others do the same. The cast is superb and includes such stars as Wallace Reid, Gloria Swanson, Elliott Dexter, Bebe Dan iels, Monte Blue, Wanda Hawley, Theodore Roberts, Agnes Ayres and Theodore Kosloff. Their portrayals are artistic and add vastly to the val ue of the production. itpicturn all, this is perhaps-theTake "THE PRIMAL LAW" AT THE REX THEATER TODAY Dustin Farnum has vron tremend ous popularity with motion picture patrons with widely different prefer ences. To multitudes, he is a favorite matinee idol, while to others he is the finest type of he-man on the screen. In "The Primal Law," a William Fox phqtodrama now showing at the Rex theater, the popular star ap pears in the role of a strong, rugged western rancher, fearless in the midst of fierce fighting, yet gentle as any woman in his care of his little pal, Bobbie Carson, over whose young life hangs nj shadow of a tragedy which those who love him try to guard him against. FEET MOST ABUSED MEMBERS According to English Writer, Only About One-Third of Humanity Walk in Natural Manner. The human foot is one of the most ,beautiful and useful instruments ever conceived, but, tin fortunately, it is not what a motorist calls "foolproof." There is a great deal of ndsunder standing iibout our feet. We treut them outrageously, us either custom or fash ion may dictate. As a result, about one-third of the populatlou Is splay footed, another third walks like a hen on hot cinders, ad the remaining third muy be said to walk fairly nut tiral. The foot has a graceful arch run ning fore and aft. We take this longi tudinal arch, turn the toes outward so that fhe heels meet at an angle of 45 degrees, and then put all our pres sure hi a skew direction across the arch. No railway engineer would dream of building a straight arch bridge to carry loads neither across nor along the arch, but irregularly askew over it. We ought to walk wiMi our great toe pointed .straight In the direction of progress, as Indian runners do, and "spring from the great toe." Instead, most of us "take oft!" in lumbering sort'of way from the ball of the great toe. The arch of the foot Is supported largely by the tendon which runs un der th foot to the great toe itself, and thl neglect of use renders this ten don weak and lax, arid causes depres sion of the arch. The best care for weak arch Is the practice of raising one's self upon the great toe, that Is, doing as a penalty exercise what you should have done ull along naturally. If you will try when walking to keep *i the feet straight, and to end each stride with little "spring" off each big toe .alternately, 5'0 warded by finding thut progress seems "'-easier, quicker and more buoyant.

Piquant and vivacious Gladys Wal ton will be seen at the Elko theater next Wednesday in "The Rowdy," the Universal feature directed by Maj. David Kirkland. As this little tom-boy of the west coast fishing* vil lage, Miss Walton is at her sprightli est best, the role being unusually well suited to her lively personality. Jack Mower, who has the leading role opposite Gladys Walton in "The Rowdy," was born in Honolulu, where he learned to swim, dive and fight sharks with the natives. The shark fight in "The Rowdy" gives Mr. Mow er an opportunity to revive his skill in the exciting pastime.

One look at the glinting gray eyes of this young man convinced the! sneering ballet master that he had better beat a graceful retreat. He had reasoned that because he had taught her the steps of the ballet she was quite as willing io be taught other arts. As the Russian dancer in "The Land of Hope," which is showing at the Grand theater tomorrow, Alice Brady plays with all her splendid emotional fire. We see her first as the wistful immigrant,-then as the eager eyed dancing girl, and finally as the proud woman choosing between three lovers. Here you have a powerful story, realistically and colorfully told Changed in Transit. A teacher asked her pupils to sug gest a song to be sung by the class and a patriotic little fellow in the rear called for ".My Country, 'Tis of Thee." Ills voice was so weak that the teacher could not understand and a youngster near him sang out: "He wants 'His Country 'Tis of Him.'" Boston Transcript. Stainless Needle Invented.

I wanted to sit down and rest all the time, and it was noth ing but will-power that kept me on the job. I lost considerable weight, was in an awful condition and look ed white and haggard. "Before I hardly knew itV Tanlac had me improving at a rapid rate, and I kept right on taking it until six bottles nave rid me completely of my troubles and. made me as strong and healthy as I could ask to be.

QUALITIES THAT WIN SUCCESS Probably the Greatest Among Them Is That Subtle Something We Know as Personality. It takes, more than mental ability to make a man and more than the qualities that are supposed to make for success itself. It is not so much what a man knows, or his ability In applying "it, as it'is fn \Vhut lie Is himself. There lurks in some human beings, in overflowing measure, that subtle Something termed personality which Is likely to carry them much farther than anything else. Probably charac ter7, courage and dependability are the throe great assets Theodore Roosevelt in his own'biography writes of the two kinds of success, the one being the result of natural gifts, the other being acquired slowly, and adds: "I need hardly say that all the successes 1 have ever won have been of the second type. I never won any thing without hard labor and the ex orcise of my best judgment and care ful planning and working long in ad vance. I was as a young man at first both nervous, and distrustful of my own prowess. I had to train myself painfully and laboriously not merely as regards my body, but as regards my soul and my spirit."Exchange. \U. ft Dutch Concert.
