Bessie Love In Dixie Bill. j
"A Daughter of the Poor," a five- s
part drama, Is the big card at the Dixie r
today. a
In nearly every scenario by Anita u
Loos there is this distinctive qualify;
that underneath the actual plot and v
rlovolnnmout nf nitrplv srrpp.n an- *
tion, there lies a genuine idea which! ?
bears some relation to lite in general j j1
instead of being confined to the ad- '
ventures of one particular hero and I'
heroine. It is this element in "A'r
Daughter of the Poor" which redeems j J
it from being a love story that is 1
merely pretty and gives it an ironic
twist that will not be lost to a dls- r
criminating audience. The idea is that "
the poor may be as unjust in their con- r
demnation of the rich as the rich are e
in their injustice to the poor and tha\ often
the loose talk of labor against
capital has its roods in mere laziness. *
In this case the heroine is the daugh-1 J
ter of a worthless Janitor who has lm-i <
pressed his radical ideas on her so > J
strongly that she shuns all "plutocrats" ; J
with a bitter hatred and is suspicious i J
of any man that has not all the ear- j 3
marks of a day laborer. i
The role of this little heroine is the | j
most effective part that has been giv- j j
en to Bessie Love for some time, and }
she plays it in her best mood of child-, J
like sincerity. Max Davidson did ?
equally fme work as the old janitor 1
whom he managed to present as lova-, !
hie In spite of his worthlessness. The J
quaint setting of the toy-shop and the ;
factory scenes were excellently done, j '

WASHINGTON, D. C.. May SL?
There will be bat 195 colored men of I
not less than 39 years of age, residents
of the four states comprising the cen- s
tral army department?Ohio, Indiana, t
Kentucky and West Vlrelnhk-sent to e
the officers' training camp for cltl- f
zens of that race to be opened at Fort s
Demolsnes. Tne members of tbe West 1(
Virginia delegation in Congress were o
today informed of those facts by tbe h
War department
There will bo 1,250 men in tbls camp, *
and 250 of this number will be noncommissioned
'.fficers of the colored E
regiments of the regular army. The
rest?1,000?will be selected from civilians
from all sections of the country, *
that quota apportioned among the vari- 1
ous army establishments. West Vir- n
ginla, as Is well known, is in the cen- "
tral department which is commanded c,
by General Barry, whose headquarters ?
are in Chicago. His address there is t
the Federal building, and applicants ?
for training in this officers' reserve ?
corps camp should send their appllca- b
Hons to him ,'lrect to avoid delay. C
They should be accompanied, each ap- d
pTicatlon, by three letters of racommen- "
datlon. ^
The men selected for this camp will b
receive orders In time for them to re- *
port by June 15. Training starts three
cays later?June 18.

Senator Nathan Golf was pleased to 'J
receive yesterday a copy of the Journal I .
of the State Legislature, which con- j J
talned a repor; of remarks made by I
President of the Senate Wells Goody-1
koontz on the complimentary resolu-1
tlon to the veteran legislator and pa- j .
trlot. Septimus Hall, and which con-' ?
talned a pretty complimentary senti- j .
mcnt for the evteran senior Senator I
from West Virginia. I,,
"1 am gratified," said President j
Goodykoontz, "in having the privilege I
to speak to this resolution. Mr. Hall is '.
a gentleman of the old school?belongs | ,
to the old regime?but a few of them i
surviving. The resolution says that!
Mr. Ilall was a member of the Consti-I
tutlonal convention of 1S72. That hap-1
pens to be the year in which I was i J
horn. His public service lias therefore [11
extended over a half-century. He is: ^
one of the survivors of a coterie of! S(
strong men, the great majority of j a
whom have already passed from the , a
face of the living to the dominions ot I silence.
Of his contemporaries who : ~
participated in the public affairs of the I
state not long atter the state govern
ment was erected, I have had the honor
i nf n nersonal acauaintance with but a
few, although I hove sought the oppor-1
tunity of meeting some of thera. Judge
Nathan Goff, now a member of the Sen-! ([
ate of the United States from West c,
Virginia, I had practiced before as a
judge of the Federal circuit court and g(
of the circuit court of appeals, but I had
never heard him on the hustings.
When he was advertised to deliver a jj
political address at Huntington four L,
years ago, i decided to feo and hear S(
him. His great name and reputation ^
I thought justified me making that trip. e.
for I felt that the opportunity to hear
him I might never have again. I was
amply rewarded, for he measured up p
to my fullest expectations." c|

CHROMIC DANDRUFF
The only way to get rid of dlsgustlg,
untidy dandruff Is to correct Its
auso. Shampooing merely cleanses
le scalp for a few days, then the
:ales form again as thick as ever.
To destroy the dandruff germ and
et rid of the dandruff for good, part
ie hair and apply a little of the genine
Parisian Snge directly on the bare
pain and rub it in until absorbed. You i
ill surely be amazed at the result of |
ven one application, for your hair and )
calp will look and feel 100 per cent, j
etter. Only a few days' massage with
arisian Sage should be needed to de-1
troy the germs that cause dandruff to j
>rm The scalp becomes healthy, the :
air will graw better, show more life i
nd vitality and you should no longer |
e troubled by dandruff. Faded, dull or |
feless hair is quickly restored to i
eauty by this simple process. Pari-j
Ian Sage can be obtained from Mt. j
ity Drug Co. and druggists every- j
here. It is not expensive.
