!? DECISION as to who is the most 1
/\ popular American author lies been I
*Mefinltely aided by the "movies."
He is apparently none other than the '
Immortal "O. Henry," whose name in
the last year has been made a house- J
hold word wherever motion pictures'
are known. General Film Company j
has already released fifty-two of his
greatest short stories in picture form, j
providing a living library of the:
works of the "American Kipling." as j
he has been called. Public Interest :n ,
the works of "O. Henry" has increased I
tremendously since the first of these j
pictures was produced. A New York;
collector ha* just paid- the record-1
breaking price of $810 for a letter j
written by the noted author. This is i
said to be the highest price ever paid :
for such a relic of an American au-|
thor, and exceeds the price?, paid for i
the letters of many of the world's
most famous authors.
"'" "Soma Pretty Babies" at Hippodrcne.
Jack Roof's "Some Pretty Babieo" j
are stationed at the Hippodrome for j
the week. The show came in yester- j
day from Morganlown where it had a <
big week. In the company are many
now faces, but several of the princi'"

here with the company last fail, nota- j
bly Joe Fields, a cr median and ohanicter
actor ol considerable fame. On j
Its last appearance here the company i
. made a splendid impression and won a:
place among the best tabloid attrac-1
Uons playing at Manager Fisher's |
house this season. The company's re;;
turn will undoubtedly be welcomed
by large audiences, especially since it
is promised that the show is even better
than before. The scenery has all
been renewed and an entire new wardrobe
will be displayed by the chorus.
It Is claimed that all three bills which
? will be presented during the week ere
entirely new to Fairmont *nd that the
, peppy dancing chorus will be a revelation.
A Mack Sennett comedy will be
shown the first two days of the week
along with the stage attraction, followI
* ed on Wednesday and Thursday by anI
f other episode of "The Lost Express."
Dixie Has Big Bill Today.
Along with "Cavanaugh of the ForI
est Rangers," a Vitagraph Blue RibI
bon feature, the Dixie will today show
I ; two episodes of "The Eagle's Eye," the
great expose of the German spy system
la America. Neil Shipman and
I . Alfred Whitman are starred in the
If former which is a screen version of
Hamlin Garland's picturesque western
jj romance. The "Eagle s Eye" episones i
ire numbers six and seven, tbe former 1
PI jelng scheduled for last week but wa3
rrpwded out on account of the r.how.ng
PgV if "The Unbeliever." All told th's
r?}, makes nine reels on the Dixie's proKBfPV.
jram" for today and insures Manager
Linn's patrons an entertainmeut of
unusual strength.
' Historic China aijd Alaska's Wonders,
life Among the many interesting things
shown in Lyman H. Howe's Travel
HKvv festival, which will be presented at the
I Brand tomorrow, Is the manner in
Ml which Chinese commercial men use to
advantage the human slaves of the
Orient?the coolies. Though nominal b?:;;'
ly not In bondage, they ha re :o labor
Bp? for twelve hours per day and receive
Ij;;; ; as compensation lc per tour, living in
jofV"/ squalor in floating cities of Vrats. *:Te
film of China also shows exciting
dragon-boat racing, an odd Chinese
Mjfiy; wedding, rare interior glimpses c-f the
1?/.' Forbidden city, sacred tombs of the EmBfi'
perors, and many other interesting
HO things of the celestial empire.
In another part of the program we
see an intrepid mountaineer go Into
the wilds of the northwest and capture,
Hj^V with the assistance of trained dogs, a
wild mountain lion, while elsewhere in
H; - the entertainment is shown the kodiok
bear, the largest and most vicious of
H'^.j;, beasts In Alaska, being bagged by a
H daring hunter.
Refined comedy of the highest type
will be afforded in the presentation 01
fast and furious fun at Coney Island,
by day and night. Every inch of this
IV.'- film is full of human interest and
Hi sheer good humor which makes the
HP"' picture ring true to life, while the
I mgnt scenes are maveis 01 nocturnal
Alaska's wonder3, showing In most
;/r spectacular fashion immense falling
5 Icebergs, dredging for gold and numerous
other incidents of our northernmost
territory, is another of exceptional
interest.
The almost incredible achievement; 1
K . of giant caterpillar war tractors
manipllated by Uncle Sam's soldiers
provides patriotic thrills, while corap
edy is infused throughout the entire
^ . entertainment by Howe's original and
SI". ; exclusive animated caricatures.
jf A New Kind of a Kiss.
M^ss June Caprice, the "Sunshine
shine Maid." will be seen at the Nelson
today in William Fox's latest photoplay,
"A Camouflage Kiss." In it
Miss Caprice plays the part of a young
It-v girl who becomes ergaged to a man
because her brother-iu-law needs mis
man in business. The brother in-law
is a producer of pen:, but Hoover's
fit..... "Eat less meat," puts a crimp in the
pork business. He leavis hat a man
! he.knows is doing welty in ti\e manufacture
of beans for commercial use.
tp, So he proposes a combination of pork
and beans. Believing that the brotherIn-law
cap help him in his suit for
h eune a obuu, iuo yum uian niiaii} ,
fe Consents to the amalgamation of the.
pork and the beans. With the aid of
?1? the brother-in-law, the pork man beHf?.
comes engaged to June. But he's very
BY: ehy. He makes a bad move. He gets
Bfe\ another man to steal a kiss from June
It In the dark, hoping to leave the im||

B however, the man kisses June in the
B daylight, June knows right away that
f it is the earns kind of a kiss she had

Dawson-Day.
Interest will be aroused in the announcement
of the marriage of Lieut.

Miss Cora A. Day, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. R. L. Day, of Huntington, which
event was solemnized Saturday night

and somewhat refined. Miss Caprice
has an excollent supporting cast.
Story of a Man's Regeneration.
Mae Marsh as Mary Garland, the
simple little fisher-maiden In "A Beloved
Traitor," at the Princess, has |
added another appealing performance I
to her growing list of film character!- j
zations. She possesses a marked abil-!
ity to cvoko the sympathy of her audiences
and is always a natural and
charming figure in roles calling for
simplicity and humanness.
In addition to the fine performance
of Mae Marsh, splendid work is done I
by E. K. Lincoln as Judd. He was an j
excellent selection for the role and
played with force and distinction. The
part of Myrna is well taken by Hedda
Hopper, who is an exceptionally pretty
young actress. J. A. Furey was well
cast as the kindly priest.
The picture has been artistically
staged. Beautiful scenes of coast
towns are shown. There is a rain-'
storm that is very elective. The atmosphere
of the little fishing town io ,
well caught and the old fishermen in
their oilskins present a real and in-;
teresting picture.

?''Plrfliroc I
welded together are probably the most;
attractive amusement before the pub- [
lie today," says The Dramatic Mirror.;
And that reminds us of the excellent
programs witnessed at the Dixie and
the important part the Dixie orchestra !
p'ays in the entertainments furnished.'
The bare announcement in the Dixie's
advertising that there will be "special,
music" dees not convey an adequate:
idea of the quality furnished by this I
litt'e hand of music makers. Edna:
Linn, who directs the orchestra, is an 1
accomplished pianist and widely ex-1
pcrienccd in moving picture accom-i
panimcr.t. which is always apparent in j
her mutual selections and their ren-'
dition. Altcr.se Swayne. Fred Morgan ;
and Glenn Amett are the other mem-;
bers of the Dixie orchestra.

to "Dad"?and others?is traveling !

?California has long been famous j
for Its girl swimmers, and visitors to ,
the west shore beaches often marvel j
at the great number of the fair sex j
who are experts at the trudgeon, the )

to be a shortage of life guards at the;
beaches this summer there is a move- j
ment on foot to organize the feminine
contingent to take up this work. The.1
