he hurried to the dining room to find
himself the last lodger at the tables.
He ate a rather hasty meal, made
more so by an impatient waitress,

courthouse and the legal procedure
which must be undergone before he
mode his first trip to the mine.
A block or two, and then Falrchild
suddenly halted. Crossing the street
at an angle Just before him was a
young woman whose features, whose
mannerisms he recognized. The whip
cord riding habit had given place now
to a tailored suit which deprived her
of^ the boyishness that had been so
apjjt&ront on their first meeting. The
cap had disappeared before a close
fitting, varicolored turban. But the
straying brown hair still was there,
the' brown eyes, the piquant little nose
and the prettily formed lips. Fair
child's heart thumpednor did he stop
to consider why. A quickening of lite
pace, and he met her just as she
stepped to the curbing.

at him with a slight smile. Falrchild
did not latch the inflection.
"Oh, no. I'm the man, you know,
who 'helped you change that tire on

"'Pardon me." This time one brown
eye had wavered ever so slightly. In
dicating someone behind Falrchild.
'But wasn't on the Denver road
yesterday, and if you'll excuse me for
saying so, I don't remember ever hav
ing seen you before."
Therd was a Httle light in her eyes
which took away the sting of the de
ntal, a light which seemed to urge cau
tion, and at the same time to tell Falr
clitid that she trusted him to do his
part as a gentleman In a thing she
wished forgotten. More fussed than
ever, he drew back and bent low in
apology, while she passed on. Half a
block away, a young man rounded a
corner and, seeing her, hastened to

up the street together. Falrchild
watched blankly, then turned at a

from the bearded lips of an old miner,

of a small store.

THE HIDDEN WOMAN" AT
REX THURSDAY, FRIDAY
An Allan Dwan production! The
very name suggests action, virility
romance! And these elements are
indeed splendidly combined in "The
Hidden Woman," a story which tells
of gay irresponsibility and frivolous
pursuits. Freeing herself from the
more or less contaminating atmo
sphere of New York's Bohemia, she
flees to a small settlement where
she discovers that in love and ser
vice for others lies the only real
and lasting happiness.
Splendidly portrayed by a cast
of stars ably directed by a notable
Jjdirector, this interesting story is
further enchanced by a varying
^background that Includes scenes on
Broadway and in the Adirondacks.
Russel Thaw, who appears wjth
his mother Evelyn Nesbit, in "The
Hidden Woman," is quite .n artist
besides an actor. His work with ien
and brush has attracted t.h? Atten*
tion of several well-known artists,
all of whom predict a bright future
for the boy.
"CHANNING OF NORTHWEST"
AT ELKO THEATER TONIGHT
"Channing of the Northwest" in
which Eugene O'Brien appears at
the Grand theater tonight, last
times is the result of a campaign
on the part of the newspapers and
the public to have the star appear
in such a picture.
As "Channing" Mr. O'Brien is
first seen as an English gentleman
of leisure whose chief occupation
seems to be decorating Piccadilly
and Mayfair. Of course, he is an
admirer of the girls at the Gaiety.
In fact, falls in love with one of them.
Unfortunately he loses all his money
and the Gaitey lady straightway
walks out on him.
"Channing, of the Northwest" is
a picture that moves every mo
ment and affords O'Brien the best
part he has had in many a long day.
"FIND THE WOMAN" AT
GRAND THEATER THURSDAY
Those who read Arthur Somers
Roche's great mystery story "Find
the Woman" in Cosmopolitan Mag
azine or later in book form will be
nterested to learn that it has been
made in screen fo/n by Cosmopolit
an Productions. "Fmd the Woman"
with Alma- Rubens as the featured
player, will be shown at the Grand

Tom Terriss, well-known director,

"MOTHER ETERNAL" AT ELKO
LAST SHOWING TONIGHT
"While there is life there is hope"
is remarkably well amplified in Ivan
Abramson's realistic production,
"Mother Eternal," the wonder film
now playing at the Elko theater.
Primarily this feature is designed
to entertain and thrill, both of wh'-h
functions it performs perfectly. But
here lies it great quality and the
reason for its unbounded success.
It does not rest on it laurels by be
ing excellent entertainment, it goes
further than that.
Vivian Martin, who plays the title
role "Mother Eternal" gives a
finished performance. Her beauty as
a young mother.calls forth admira
tion and her playing of the mother
grown old and grey, who struggles
to keep a little household together
only to discover that she is in every
one's way, is character portrayal of
the highest order.
