Dixie Alee Has Hart Picture.
It la not often that we have the same
screen star in two houses on the same
lay, bat It happen* today when W. 8.
Hart, who la at the Nelson in "Wolves
of the Rail" la also seen at the Dixie
In "The Hellliouod of Alaska." The
story abounds In incidents of the most
Intense interest, laid In a county that
I to little moe than a fiction with most
of as, but which to those who live
there to e stern reality calculated
to make stern men. Such a story Is
naturally well placed In the hands of
Hart The British official war pictares
are also seen today, special attention
being given to views from the
went front where American boys are
fighting aide and side with the poilus
of Trance. Dixie music has never been
mentioned as a feature for the reason
that Manager Linn has always held
tha tmusic was one of the chief entertaining
features of any picture house
or theatre, and the croyrds that go to
see pictures they really don't rare for.
just to hear the Dixie orchestra bears
out tbe Judgment of the manager, and
at tbe same time pays a pretty compliment
to hard working organiaxtlon In
the orchestra pit.

to ran down -lie bandit*, and he traila
"Buck" snd is shot when he trie* to
arrest him. "Buck" keeps the detectire
a prisoner in his cabin, and, taking
hi* credentials, impersonates him
with the railroad people. He pursue*
Tritle* and the bandits so persistently
that they are unable to commit any
more depredaMons "Hu-.k" meets
Faith Lawsri. who nh-rited her father's

We do not believe that the minis

meant that the hour should be sounded
by what Is strictly known as the
fft?-alann siren. Wa understood It
was to be announced each day by two
short blasts of a whistle, but the firealarm
siren effect has been sounded
during the past week. On Monday
nearly everyone believed It to be a
fire alarm, and the hose enrts were
gotten out. Even now, after a week's
repetition, people who have the "An-1
