SMART SOCIETY DRAMAS
After five years ^of successful star
ting in society dramas, which have
ranged all the way from tense emo
tionalism to high comedy, Alice Brady
has temporarily, at least, forsaken
the drama dealing with the smart set,
and will be seen in a series of at least
three dramas of humble life.
The first of these, "The Land of
Hope," a collaboration by Frederick
and Fannie Hatton and Robert Milton,
presents the popular star in the role
of a Polish immigrant girl who seeks
her fortune in America, along with a
little company of people from her na
tive town, including her childhood
sweetheart.
The young lovers think all their
'^troubles will end when they reach
America, and that they, will quickly
earn enough to enable them to marry.
But, alas for their optimism, 1 bitter fight
have many difficulties, disllusion-i
ments and misunderstandings before
they fain a firm foothold on ttie new
soil, and win happiness together.
The role of the Polish youth is
ably handled by Jason Robards, who
played juvenile lead -with Frank Bac
on in "Lightnin*" for two years, but
resigned to devote himself to picture
acting. Others in the cast include
Ben Hendricks, Jr., Echuyler Ladd,
Larry Wheat, Betty Carsdale, Martha
McGraw, Fuller Mellish and Bernard
Siegel. The production was directed
by E. H. Griffith.
"The Land of Hope" has been
billed for a 2-day run at the Grand
theatre beginning tonight. Pathe
News and Comedy completes the pro
gram.

woman, who concealed their names.
They declared that they saw a work

"I just met a guy who beat me out
of $500 and I got him for part of

LAND CLEARING FLEET
BEGINS ANOTHER CRUISE
The university's land clearing fleet
has been in action this week in Carte
ton county, and next week will sail
for strategic points in Pine and Mille
Lacs counties. The latest cruise open
ed Thursday, September 2y, ana wnl
close October 14 at Hillman, Mille
Lacs county. Demonstrations of the
use of picric acid are being given by
Charles M. Fardy, a land clearing ex
pert. The allotment to Minnesota of
774,000 pounds of the explosive has
been taken and practically distributed
says Prof. William Boss of Universi
ty Farm. The original series of land
clearing fleet demonstrations held
principally in St. Louis county, was
a great success. The demonstrations
were given in localities where the set
tlers had purchased picric acid and
therefore had real interest in learning
how to use it. A. J. Sthwantes of
University Farm was in charge of
this expedition.

A Banquet That Was
1 Almost a Tragedy
Three years ago at a banquet I
was stricken with acute indigestion.
Two .doctors worked over me for an
hour ibefore I came to. I had had
severe colic attacks before, but noth
ing like that. No doctors or medicine
gave me permanent help until a
friend, who was at the banquet, ad
vised one to take a course of Mayr's
Wonderful Remedy, which I did with
/Wonderful results."
It is a simple, harmless preparation
that removes the catarrhal mucus
from the intestinal tract and allays
the inflammation which causes prac
tically all stomach, liver and intesti
nal ailmpnts, including appendicitis.
