The elaborate court of King James
I of England, a reproduction of
historic Jamestown, 'Virginia, in
I6&Q1 a-*ight Between a pirate ship
.^afld a victim vessel colorful proper
ties and, costumes galore, these are
the big features of "lq Have and To
^Hold", a romantic screen"story pro
educed by Goi*gfe.'Fifcimsffirice which
^=will ba oft viow-at-the- Elko theatre
,-for the last time--tonigh*
"To Have and To Hold" is a pro
duction of exceptional brilliance.
Heading the cast are such noted
players as Betty Compson, Bert
Lytell, recently a star in his own
right,' Theodore Roberts and Theo
dore Kosloff.
Ouida Bergere adapted Mary
Johnson's novel, dealing with events
in the early colonial days of Vir
ginia, in the reign of King James I,
a weak and vacillating monarch. The
role of Jocelyn, his ward, is played
by Miss Compson, and Mr. Lytell is
Captain Kalph Percy, a brave and
resourceful young soldier. Lord
Carnal, the petted favorite of the
king, with'-a black heart and a hand
some exterior, is playe by Mr. Kos
loff. 4
"EAST IS WEST" MAKING
BIG RUN AT THE GRAND
Never has Constance Talmadge
been seen to such advantage as in
"East Is West" the First National
Attraction which yesterday opened
its engagement at tre Grand theatre
where it will be shown again today
and Tuesday.
This may seem a broad statement
but it is more than justified by Miss
Talmadge's interpretation of the role
of Ming Toy. Due credit must go
to Joseph M. Schenck, .who plunged
on this proposition to the extent of
buying one fthe biggest stage suc
cesses of recent years at an enorm
ous costfor the one star best suited
to portray the leading role.
Miss Talmadge is utterly delight
ful in the role of Ming Toy, the
quaint and adorable- She lends a
charm all her own to the many scenes
of the delicious comedy.
Most conspicuous in her support
is Warner Oland, famous villian of
the screen, as.Charley Young, the
Americanized Chinaman who covets
Mirig Toy, whose love is given to

Wednesday. Stables and paddocks
were built at the Christie studio for
other scenes but it takes an expert
to tell which scenes were made at the
studio and which down at the track.
"THE ISLE OF DOUBT" AT
ELKO THEATRE TUESDAY
"Which one of us do you choose
now? Meor your lover?" Thus a
husband gave his wife her choice
She hated her husband, and she had
already found her lover wanting in
couragewanting in fact, in all the
virtues her love had endowed him
wSth. But obstinately she chose her
loverthere, jm that "Isle of Doubt"
wher two men and a woman tried to
make a straight, true line out of an
eternal triangle. The Elko theatre
presents Tuesday and Wednesday
"The Me of Doufbt", a Playgoers
feature, starring Wyndham Stand
ing in the role of the husband. It
is a story of romance and adventure
told against a background of high
society and a picturesque and prim
itive tropical isle. Dorothy Mackaill
and Gorge Fawcett have feature
roles.
"KINDRED OF THE DUST" AT
GRAND THEATRE WEDNEDSAY
''The course of true love never
runs smooth" is an adage which is
exemplified in "Kindred of the Dust"
an Associated First National attrac
tion produced by Raoul Welsh from
the novel by Peter B. Kine and which
is coming to the Grand theatre on
Wednesday for a two day engage
ment with. Miriam Coopter in the
leading 'feminine role.
Playing the role of "Nan of the
Sawdust Pile" Miss Cooper gives a
remarkable characterization of a
"The enlightened employer interests himself in the
conservation of the heakh of his employes and in
their safety, so far as he can provide diem/' says
the Chicago Tribune.
For many years the Standard Oil Company
(Indiana) has followed this plan as a part of its es
tablished policy.
Th|s Company maintains an exceptionally high stand
ard of safety insurance. It no$ only provides safety
devices but by encouraging the organization of safety
committees in all of its refineries, it has been suc
cessful in reducing accidents in its refineries to a
point which actually is below that of^ma^iy businesses
naturally less hazardous.
As an example of its efforts in thitfffirecdon is cited
the fact that all Standard Oil Company (Indiana) re-'
fineries are provided with elaborate fire-fighting
devices, of which live steam and chemicals are
notable refinements. %M
The Directors of the Standard Oil Company (Ind
iana) recognize that an employe who believes him
self to be well-treated and secure is a better worker
and is more interested in giving full service both to
the Company and to the public than is the ^employe
who lacks this feeling of security.
The management of this Company believes that
every constructive measure for the benefit of its em
ployes is a definite factor in lowering the cost of doing
business, in securing greater efficiency, and ultimately
lowering prices of its products to the consumer.
Hazard reduction is but one item, though an im
portant one, in the Company's complete program of,
attention to the w?Jl-being of its employes. Other
items include liberal compensation, good working
conditions, steady work, and insurance in so far as
is possible againstunemployment. ,In addition thi$?
Company has devised an annuity system to provide
for the protection of those who have grown old in,
itser*jce.
The, efforts of the management to provide ways and
means of eliminating the dangers of a highly hazard-
ous occupation is reflected in the enthusiasm of the
workers and the whole-hearted endorsement of
26,560 stockholders, not one of whom owns
much as 10 percent of the total.

MOTOR' "GYPSIES" ARE MANY
Traveler In Southern California Im
pressed by the Number of Tour,
ista on the Road.
Describing a tour through California
In Harper's Magazine, Arthur Ruhl
writes:
"Everywhere yon go, of course, you
run into our new motor gypsies. The
dusty car, with father and mother, in
the same style khaki breeches and O.
D. shirt, on the front seat bareheaded
youngsters of all ages In the rear the
family dog squeezed on the running
board or Into some astonishing corner
behind the lamps and all about, tents,
washtubs, and possibly a canoe or two
this is today's prairie schooner.
"Sometimesas in southern Califor
nia, for instance, where there has been
plenty of building and work for casual
masons and carpentersthese motor
pilgrimages suggest a considerable
shifting of the Industrial population.
But wherever wild country, and trout,
and possibly bear or deer, are within
easy motoring distance, nearly every
body falls into the habit of loading up
the old bus and starting qut for any
thing from a few days tb a few months.
Practically' every town along the main
highways has Its municipal camping
groundin Colorado Springs one morn
ing I.thought a movie company must
be 'on location' in the neighborhood, so
exotic seemed the number of young
women in riding breeches, sombreros
and flannel shirts with bandanna neck
erchiefs, but was told by an unim
pressed native that they were 'only
tourists.'"
BIRD SONGS ON THE PIANO
Interesting Experiments Conducted by
Eastern Woman Give Rise to Im
mense Possibilities.
Bird songs may become basic themes
for more music than folk songs. This
is the prediction of Mrs. H. H. A.
Beach, a composer who has been, mak
ing experiments along this iiae at
tfeteirborough, N. H. Mrs. B%ch's
explanation of her theory and her ex
periments,is unique and interesting.
"My studio at Peterborough was
surrounded on three sides by beoutifal
birch trees, the front facing a wide
view^of the valley and. mountains. In
the- "deep woods nearby* the hermi
thrushes sang all day long, so close to
me that I could notate their songs and
even amuse myself by imitating them
on the piano and having them answer.
The songs were so very lovely and so
consonant with our scales that I
could weave them into piano pieces as
easily as I could have used folk songs
It was a labor of love, indeed, and I
only hope that I have succeeded in giv
ing at least a slight impression of their
exquisite rhythm and melodic beauty."
If bird song can be incorporated
successfully Into piano music thus,
there is an infinite field of beauty and
variety from which the themes may
be drawn. It is to be hoped that Mrs.
Beach and herlellow-artlsts: will go on

Die-Cast Wood Horns.
The demand for loud speakers has
brought about the development of all
kinds of horns, some of metals, others
of fiber, and still others of pressed
wood. It Is the last-mentioned type
with which we are momentarily Inter
ested. These are made of selected
wood which is reduced to Its original
fiber and cast In steel dies under a
pressure of 12 tons and subjected to
800 degrees' of heat. This is claimed
to form an artificial wood many times
denser than natural wood. Its acous
tic properties are remarkable. The
vibrations'received through the phone
at the base of the hora are amplified
by the rich, resonant vibrations of the
material itself. The metallic sound
which is so annoying in many types of
loud speakers equipped with metal
horns Is said to be entirely eliminated.
