1 AU who have read Dante's Divine
]
D'omedjr, "Inferno," are looking for-;
I ward eagerly t-» the presentation of
this famous production in moving
I pictures, which is advertised bv th>
Grand Theatre for Wednesday ani
Thursday, Jan. 24th and 2.1th.
The filming of Dance's "Inferno'*
i marks a new epoch in moving pic.
tures In more respects than one, Fn
til now the moving picture has been
housed Hi bumble quarters compar
ed to the legitimate stage, and its en
vironments have been of a correspon
ding character, indeed the legitimate
j stage kept the moving picture at a
distance as an undesirable relative
AH this has nov’ been changed, and
the picture has mad? a Iflniuphant
entry Into the bwt show houses c?
the country. U Is .tot, of course, *he
ordinary moving picture to which
the doors of the great »U«aii *s have
been opened, but the feature flim,
j dealing with a subject rich and in
teresting enough to constitute an ev
enings entertainment. Of these
J feature films easily the first In Dan
ite's “Inferno." Only those who are
I at least in a fair degree familiar
I with the poem can appreciate the
j seemingly insurmountable obstacles
which met the maker ambitious
| enough to render this great creation
i it|;o moving pictures.’ There was
j but one wgy to solve the problem,
(and this was the most difficult way
.of all—to follow with HteFai fidelity
! ail the conceptions and fancies of
the poet. This is the way that the
makers of the film have chosen, and
it has led them to success
From the first canto to Che last
one Is struck by the startling real.
Ism of each foot, of flint. Take, for
j Instance, the first canto: The wan
dering of the poet through the dark
! and gloomy forest: his adventure!
with wild beasts; his repealed st
tempts to ascAnd the hill of selva
, Ition; the flight from the famished
wolf; the descent of Rcatrlee from
i the realm of the blessed in‘o the
liinbo of Virgil; the pious poet «*f
r|)ia«an astiquity, are rendered with
ijsuch a fascinating power that one
; loses sight of the fact that he la
watching a picture and not realities
The wonder grows as the picture
j progresses. ’ *
The arrangement of the guilty
souls before the infernal judge, it."
heat stirring scene on the banks ol
j the River Acheron are rendered with
la dramati? j ower and intensity ol
I'which words can give but a felni
H Idea. The height uf moving picture
realism, however, is reached when
i the two poets on their Journey
through hell arrive at the gray and
withered cliffs of tne Stygian
Swamps, where the violent are con
fined. The tystern of signals by
which the infernal powers send news
of the coming and parsing of guilty
souls through the various regions,
so graphically describe I by Dante, I*
shown with a thrllPnjr and over
whelming realism In toe pc'ure.
The great dramatic moment in
j Dante's poem come* wlf!» the arrival
j of the poet at the gi.es of the City
of Dig. The scenes here filliw each
otKtr In rapid succession, reaching a
in «» powerful climax when Virgil
Uc.>m» filled wi H d?-p»ir and inclin
ed to retrace his stip*. The makers
of the film have done full Justice ro
*.his most muettufc port.'on of the
poem, and the *pejt%t'v finds him
j seif thrtlled and awed In turn* Nor
Is there any abat *n.er.» in rrtf* ic
| power and ref* i?m~nt as the poem
approaches Its end. The last circle
in the Inferno, lepicting 'he punish,
i ment of traitors, Is among the most
impressive. Every s op increases
our admiration fOT the film makers
, aud renews and enhances our un
j demanding and enjoyment of the
noem Numerous instances could be
! cited showing how, even in the mi
nutest detail, the picture seized the
conceptions of Dante and worked
them cut with patient and artistic
endeavor. A few may suffice. We
mention tHe flight of tHe evil spir
its like frogs before the serpent, at
the approach of the angel aefore the
gates of the (Tty of Dis; the filiating
of Francesca da Rimini and her lov
er through the air. "at* light before
the wind;" the changing of the
robbers into hideous shapes, assum
ing a color like that of paper which
has been singed by flame, the pour
ing forth upon the earth of the mis
I erable spirit in the circle of tHe mis.

The conditions that make the Rio Grande Valley the peer of all
other land projects are its richness of soil, its irrigation canals, its «
j jgj
cheap hired labor and last, but not least, its unmatchabJe climate. m
* Land that can be irrigated is limited and that in the Rio Grande *
* Valley is only a little strip, about fifteen miles wide and seventy long. *
* Basing the valuation of this land upon its production, its gcograph- *
ical position and its climatic conditions, we predict it will be the J
* highest priced of any land in the United States. J
We make strong statements about this Valley, but we can show *
* - *

We run excursions on the first and third Tuesdays of each month
* ft om leading points all over the North, which take prospectors right £
j * to see what the Valley offers. J
