} . Theda Bara and Jean Sothern play
I the; roles of the two orphaned girls in
j^S'.vthls. release of Fox's production of
"The Two Orphans," described as the
1918 version. It is Justly celebrated
EE?i as. a melodrama the world over, and
& -,? . probably contains as well contrived a
l| mixtnre of tears and smiles and thrills
Efev? as shy'play ever put on the boards, in
K& screen form it holds the old-time
power, and there are moments when
Br.'.', the melodrama rises to the full dlgnity
'?The.story interest is strong from the
w?r-'; firsL It opens with the coming of
Bjfe"". Henrietta and Louise to Paris from
|.. the* provinces. They are intercepted
:. by tools of the villianous Marquise de
" Presles, who carry oft Henrietta and
leave the blind girl. Louise, to wander
HtS-' onthe Paris street. Here begins a
fwonderful contrast ot conaiuons in
which. the girls rind themselves. HenWfc;\
rietta,is spirited away to a party beS
given by the nobility. She is made
Bs^-' isport of by the marquis and his {
K friends, bat the hero. Chevalier <le
: Vandrcy, comes to her rescue and
^Hg^;tfi?bts a duel In her behalf. Louise in
B^p^the 'meantime has fallen in with a tamBt
ily of beggars and thieves, of which
^ the odious Mother Frochard is the
i\.: Jihad.*'' Many incidents occur, and!
KpHothere<?rer numerous tense moments be- J
||p: lere'the two are reunited,
li The story is quite obvious in its
Ri- '. heartvappeal. but none the less gripv

Iadie3 of Mannington chapter of the <
Red Cross that your entry of a sot i
dier's comfort kit has been awarded
the first prize of 525 at our state fair.
Check for this amount will be mailed 1
to jou at the close of the state fair,
when premiums are being paid on ail
I exhibits. The awarding committee i
through a misunderstanding of the I
rules had given the first prize to aa i r
entry made by an individual whirl j t
was published in the local papers im j ~
mediately upon completion of the |
Jndgings. As I personally had ori j ;
ginated the idea of the Red Crosi
prize, and was in charge of the tif- ! Q
partmcnt. I took the first opportunity i
to view th'- exhibits and noted tiis: j.
the. entry m question was not made 4 fj
in the name of any chapter, which fact:
j I immediately called to the attention[ t,
j of the secretary. We yesterday in-! v
I vestigated the matter and learned
! that the Individual was not a meinDer j
[ of any chapter, and therefore no: t,
! eligible to compete. The chairman nf _
1 the committee was notified last night that
the blue ribbon would have :o
be attached to your exhibit, which j
was "done this morning, and a story :
explaining that your chapter had been
given the prize was given to the papers
this morning to appear this evening.
This was done before the receipt
of your letter. X wish to add that it
gives the State Fair Association great
pleasure to make this award to your.
chapter, and that Secretry Swarty|

the mistake made by the awarding I
