>. . The dominant note In "Mothers of
France," which Is at the Dixie today,
Is Its utter sincerity. It makes use
of none of the spectacular tricks that
characterize the typical war drama.
The almost naive simplicity of the
story and action only serves to throw
j ; Into stronger relief the appalling
realism of the conflict now raging
over the charming fields and friendly
little towns of France. What plot
there is deals with the stately, and
aristocratic Mme. Marshy, chatelaine

the heroism and death of her only
son In battle learns to merge her sor"

begins and the actual war pictures
end, for the action Is woven In with
scenes taken on the battlefield and
In the hospitals of France.
The final personal touch In this

of Mme. Bernhardt In the leading
role. Perhaps no living actress
has so Identified herself with her nation
as she had with France and it
is the last touch of poetical Justice
that gives her the role of mother to
the soldiers of her country. Her support
Is excellent, especially in the

NEff HOTEL ORIS
An average o (twenty-two business
men who have been passing through
this section of the state for years and
who have never stopped in Fairmont
because of local hotel conditions stopped
at The Fairmont each day last
week, according to statistics complied
by Assistant Manger, R. H. Fatt.
Mr. Fatt knew that the hotel was
attracting many traveling salesmen
and other busines men that had never
before stopped In Fairmont, and was
curious to get some definite figures
on the situation. Last week he took
particular pains to confer with all who
registered at the hotel. He found
.aat a total of 164 guests, or an average
of 22 each day had stopped at The
Fairmont that had not been acustomed
to stop here before, yet they had
been making regular trips through
this section of the state for years.
Many others stated that they stopped
in Fairmont over night only when
they had to. whilo many coming from
Wheeling and other points in that
section had been geting of fhe rain
a Mannlngon, stopping at The Bartlelt
and coming to Fairmont the next
day. Mr. Fatt tells many other incidents
of a similar nature related
to him by some of the 164 that had not
been stopping here.
Mr. Fa^t is a careful observer of the
relation of a hotel to a city's business
and during his short stay it Fairmont
had added many Idcag to his life time
experience as a hotel man.
