I is over and they are again free
beings as far as attending the
monies and theatres Is concerned.
Grown-ups, and especially those not
having children of their own, cannot
fully realise what a great Joy had been
blotted out of their little hearts when
the ban went forth.
One little girl said to me, "I can't
go to a picnic, they won't let me In
the movies, and I must stay out of Sunday
school, the play ground Is closed,
schools are not yet open, so what can
I do? Haven't we 'kiddles' any privileges
at all?"
. I couldn't say yes, for fear of being
asked: "What?"
But there is sunshine again.
The "kiddies" have been unshackeled.
The Lord & Vernon Musical Comedy
Company starts a week's engagement

have never before been produced out- i

at prices ranging to $1.50. He Is high- "
ly pleased that he has been able to secure
such good material for produc- ?

n
"Peg o" the Ring," which is now an p
eagerly-awaited picture at the Prin- t
cess, is on today. It is one of the s
most thrilling episodes to date, and ti
the circus side of it Is fascinating to d

work of Francis Ford and Grace Cun- C
ard appeals additionally to grown-ups. ti
i
As proof of the popularity in Fair- ?

which was greeted with expressions
of a flattering nature. All of which is a
highly gratifying to the entice com- ?
pany and to Miss Grandin in partlcu- g

The Colonial orchestra is a delight
to patrons of that house, and frequent r

former Indian Fighter Has
Had a Most Picturesque
Career
Col. Wm. P. Cody, former Chief of
icouts, Indian fighter, dead-shot, travler,
raconteur and picturesque show- 1
nan, known to at least two generaions
as "Buffalo Bill," Is again "in
he saddle" this season, and his visit
o Fairmont with the newly combined
tulfalo Bill-101 Rranch shows, Friday,
lept 29, will revive many memories
if the career of this noted national
haracter.
The history of the Borderland would
ot be complete if the name of Col.
tody was eliminate!. While still a
oung man his "nerve" and cool-headd
judgment was so generally recog- <
ized that time after time he was em- k
loyed to rid the "tough" towns of
iansas and Nebraska of their undelrable
citizens, and when he underook
the job he never failed. The borer
outlaws learned to have a very
tholesome respect for "Marshal
tody." He made an early study of
he Indians and their methods of
anting and making ywar, and whenver
there was danger of an Indian
utbreak his services were in demand.
ls a scout the Indians recognized the
act that he was equal or superior to
hemselves. and they were always
Traid of him. As a Buffalo hunter,
a the days when the bison stampedd
in great herds across the Western
lains, and especially in the valleys
f the upper Missouri, he acquired a
eputation that has remained with
dm throughout the years.
Col. Cody originated the Wild West
how as it is known in the United
Itates, and through his exhibition be
?ve the people of the East their
Irst glimpse of the real life of the
Teat prairies.

GARDEN OF ALLAH
HERETOMORROW
Spectacular Drama Contains
Powerful But Charming
Story
No play in recent years has taken
10 daringly audacious a theme as "The
Jarden of Allah," which will be prelented
at the Grand Opera House tomorrow
evening. The theme Is of
such infinite beauty and Oriental
iplendor that it will remain in the
learts and memory of all who see it
tor many days to come.
"The Garden of Allah" was drama:ized
by Robert Htckens ? who also
irrote the book of the same title?and
.vaa assisted by Mary Anderson de
Mavarro.
The underlying charm of this novel
ind spectacular drama is the very
taturalness of it all?to portray a man
ind a woman, who. hnvlnw found oiiaK
nflnlte delight In their marriage, can
ay aBlde their worldly happiness that
he man may return to his monastery.
William Jeffrey as "Boris," the
-oung Trapplst monk, who finds love
>ut not peace and contentment of soul
>utslde the monastery, gives to the
itmosphere of the role so delicate a
:harm. that one will find the heartitrings
tightening as he gazes upon
he wistful, kindly face, and follow him
:hrough his trying moments; and Sarah
Traux as "Domini," the woman
vho also finds love In the Great Satara
Desert, but who, in her great love
lor truth and right gives back this
love, brings to her exacting role a
:harmlng personality and a low vliratlng
speaking voice?a sweetness
ind reverence that wlnstbe heart.
Others in the cast Include Howard
Jould, Thaddeus Gray, James Mason,
Mbert Andruss, Leo de Valery, Pearl
3ray and the Abbott family of five, together
with one hundred others relulred
