Though their meetings are innocent. the Deemster leads Ewan to believe his sister has been dishonored, and when he attempts revenge on Daniel. Ewan is huried backward over a cliff and killed. Dan is tried for murder and to save him from the death sentence at the hands of the Deemster his father, the Bishop supreme power that he is, decrees that he shall he cut on rrom ms people uossoiuteiy. ocvcu . years he lives a recluse, then a plague ; visits the island.

Fusllliers Last Appearance Tonight A new program will greet the patrons of the Hippodrome tonight when Adair's American Fusilliers appear for 1 the last time, and surrender to "M7 week. While it would ha hard to name any particular feature which has made this a popular attraction, as a whole it has measured up very well in every detail, to the high standard required by Manager Fisher. Perhaps the most popular feature of the show, as indeed of many shows that have held forth at the Hipp, is the Harmony Four. A number of the better popular selections were pleasingly rendered, and the demand for this stylo of entertainment was evidenced by the repeated encores. U ?'

In answer to Mr. Aominer's series of questloss be received the following: Wheeling, Feb. IB, ISIS. Mr. D. B. Aumiier. White Cloud Restaurant. "Fairmont, W. Va. My dear Mr. Aumiller:? 1 We trust the following will answer your letter of February Sth. (1.) Sandwiches may not be served '.a addition to the two ounce ration or* bread. , (2) Only two ounces of rye bread should be served ct each meal. Four ounces of corn, oat meal, or bras bread mmg- be served. <3> So pie containing any wheat flour may be served on wfceatiess day except under the following conditions. If 33 1-3 per cent substitutes are used : in all your pastry baking for the ea-i tire week you may serve pics and1 doughnuts baked in this manner on the 1 wheatiess days. <4> In packing a lunch pail restrict ji the bread pecked in the same manner j as ff you were servkig a meal?that is .two ounces of the restricted breads, | four ounces of the permissible. A man going out on Saturday with a lunch to eat after mid-night should not be permitted to hare his pail packed with j beni sandwiches. This would merely , be another way of saying that a man who docs not eat until midnight would nor he evnected to observe the pork f lass day and we prefer, besides, that. the restaurants keep away from pork : ! altogether on Saturday. Remember. i that the conservation of pork is very i important. j (5) You are not allowed to fry In lard oa porkless days. You are. of j course, allowed to fry in any vegeta-. ble fat you choose. j (6) The real Victory bread may be | served at any time, breakfasts, wheat- i less days, or when you will. The same i is true of Graham and whole wheat. (7) This question is emswered above j under (2) except that you should understand that when corn bread is: served as a full portion you may not serve wheat bread, also there is no objection dividing the portion if you j choose?say two ounces of corn bread j and one ounce of wheat, provided it J is not a wheatless day or a wheatless meal. .; (S) A restaurant open day and night should begin its perklcss day at mid-!i sight and continue it urrtil the next! I ir.:d-night. Thore is no other rule to! J fix for this in spite of our ruling on j ] the lunch pail. Yon ask what you; j shall do with meat that will not hold for 43 hours. We can only answer' | that it is up to you not to have meat, jj | pies, white bread or an> thing which lj ?1,1 ?1* --- rhn forbid- I I Win spun 11 - ... . den days. Yon roust realize that we cannot make exceptions on this account or every restaurant in the country would begin to claim that it would: have to serve meat and bread or have; It spoil on its hands. ! (9) We are having trouble to get i fish supplies on Tuesdays. We sug-: gest that you encourage the use of i poultry, game, and boons and other j meat substitutes. We hope this answers your lues-11 ! tions satisfactorily. Your letter re- j I quired a great deal of detail in its re- ' j ply and consequently the reply to the | ; same had to be postponed as this office I is already considerably over-crowded.
