Criticism and comment on the at

?The Editor. j
The Princess.
"Reckless Youth," the offering
at the Princess today is well
titled, and is everything that the
name implies. The story brings
out forcefully the modern tenfienflVnf
the asre toward reckless
living, and shows too, the results
I in a manner that carries with it
a lesson.
Elaine Hammerstein. in the starring
role, gives a strong portrayal
of the young society girl who
comes at last to see the affects of
her own recklessness, and confessing
her faults starts life anew
with the young husband to whom
she became reconciled.
Baby Peggy in a comedy and
International News are the added
features.
The Nelson.
A picture that will hold the interest
of the audience without
lagging is "Money to Burn." the
feature attraction at the Nelson
today. William Russell, who appears
in the leading role, is ably
supported by a splendid cast. The
scenes are all beautifully photographed
and the lighting effects
are perfect.
The story presents several unusual
features, among which is
the stock market in action ( in
which - Mr. Russell, as "Lucky"
Garrity has been largely interested,
but having made a fortune,
decides to rest upon his oars and I
enjoy life. To this end, he buys I

abode thereon, to find that the
former tenants are still inhabiting
the place, and this leads to a
series of interesting situations.
Comedy and news complete the
program.
The Dixie
The reason that Molly 'O. appearing
a the Dixie today and tomorrow.
has a general appeal, is
that different classes of society
are represented and the human
weakness and emotions of them
all are portrayed in such a realistim
manner.
Condition of birth had placed
Molly .'O in a poor but honest Irish
family, but her love of the romantic
and beautiful and the inspiration
to,rise above her surroundings,
through the philosophy of a
friend, carries her in thought to a
far away visionary fairyland.
Then, in Cinderella fashion her
dreams came true not just exactly
as she bad dreamed they would
perhaps, but the love and happiness
for which her hungij heart
had yearned is her sat last.
We learned much from this simple
Irish story and we are sure
that those who see it will too. if
they view in the right way.
That there are many inconsistencies
in it, we admit, but they
are the very things that will point
out our own mistakes, and will

made by the new owners to- '
day.
Announcement of the transaction,
which was completed a few days
ago for the pin-chase of Courtney's ;
Store, for many years one of the
leading mercantile institutions of :
the city, has created much favorable
comment in view of the fact
that local interests are represented 1
in the deal.
The earlier reports indicated that ;
Courtney's Store had passed to a
syndicate of Clarksburg merchants,
but it is now learned that E. Deitz :
of this city, his brother, J. H. Deitz
of New York City, and Samuel ;
FORBIDDEN FRUIT
The "forbidden fruit" 1n the

dear to the eye of woman,
which lately arrayed the windows
of Courtneys' Store
were replaced by sale signs
yesterday.
Many a flapper, after viewing
the lovely summer creations on
display in these windows during
the past week, decided to
add another "'C-all on Dad (c.
o. d.) to her youthful record,
only to find her ambition
thwarted by the barred entrances
of the store.
Markowitz of Clarksburg, have become
the new owners of the business.
J. H. Deitz, who has specialized
In the merchandizing of women's
and children's apparels in New
York City for many years and who
more recently has been associated
with the leading store in Greensburg,
Pa., will be actively in charge
of the merchandizing policy of the
new concern.
It is said that similar lines will
be carried but that there will also
be several items added to the former
Courtney's offerings. Particularly.
it is planned to add a large
department, carrying wearing apparel
for infants and children.
J. H. Dietz is a young man who
has devoted himself exclusively to 1
the lines which will be featured ;
in the new enterprise, and, in ad- :
dition to his merchandising.ability,
he brings to Fairmont a fund of
experience in novel and enterprising
methods of advertising.
He has achieved, national attention
through many of his advertis- 1
ing features and it is stated his
excellent methods of directing public
attention to the merchandise
of a store will soon be demonstrated
in Fairmont.
Samuel Markowitz who joins the
new undertaking is a prominent
merchant of Clarksburg where he
conducts two retail establishments.
He is well known in Fairmont
as the owner of Main street
business properties.
E. Deitz. the third member of
the new syndicate has conducted
Deitzs Leader Shop in this community
with continuous success
during the last eleven years. That
Mr. Detiz is a believer in the stability
of this entire section and its
future prosperity is indicated by
his manr holdings here.
In addition to the Leader Shop,
he now operates the Clothes Shop
at 115 Main street and a similar
men's clothing store in Calrksburg.
The purchase of Courtney's Store
represents the fourth retail estabed
in this territory.

is understood to have run into
large figures on account of the
large stock of splendid merchandise

This merchandise will be sold

of next week in order to
make way for remodeling which
will be necessary for a broader
lino to be carried under the new
management.

Even Now They're Buying
Them, Confides Seller
of Such Things Women
are again buying corsets.
They are attempting to regain
some of the old form.
This instructive information
was obtained from the corseteer.;
at several of the local stores. In
Interviewing the sales (ladies of
the modern "straight jacket", we
find that in all but one instance
the sales have greatly increased
over former seasons.
It is no easy matter to fit them
now, either. They have cast aside
the mainstays of their symmetry
for such a long time that they are
now facing the sad but honest fact
that their waistline has increased
in circumference.
To the best of the writer's knowi
edge, the first corset was cast
aside with the material that was
cut from the bottom of the ladies
skirt. Of course, that has been
some time ago. but the remarkable
thing is that the corset is returning
but the poor skirt hasn't reached
the altitude record yet.
Here's what the local sales
ladies say about the possible return.
"Every day we are getting orders
for corsets. They are un-i
doubtediy coming back and I think
with fall, we will find that the
corset will be as much a part of
le'line nlnthJntr if Wad Vipfnrp
the let-up came. Women are getting
more sensible and they are
beginning to realize that the corset
js a necessity to their grace
and beauty of poise."
The next lady blamed the return
to the fall suits: "Tailored
suits are going to be good this
fall and the well dressed woman
will not be complete without her
corset. The ladies who '.threw
away their corsets have undoubtedly
become heavier and they
want them back again."
The third lady was a slender
woman and the reporter blushed
as he looked in her direction to
detect sbme signs of a straight
front that might be hiding beneath
her outer garments.
"Are the women going to start
wearing corsets again?"
The sales lady laughed at this
question and told the reporter that
she would return with some first
hand information about the subject
as soon as she waited on the
lone customer. That was at the
"what do you call it" counter.
"No." said the lady, on returning,
"I don't think that they will
ever get back to it again. The
women that have thrown aside
their corsets, have found that they
can get along without them, ana
they won't come back. You might
tell vnnr editor that the women
are becoming more athletic and
the tendency is not to be held back
by 'old ironsides.'"

In The Coke Belt
Ninety-two cars of coal were
loaded on the Monongahela Railway
in Pennsylvania on' Thursday
at twenty mines, or less than an
average of five cars of coal at a
mine. Production has been low all
of this week, but of course the holiday
is a factor. Last month from
72 to 131 cars of coal were loaded
daily, with the average daily production
running 110 cars.
This morning there were twenty
mines at work, the same number
as the past two days. Last month
as many as twenty-five were at
work some days, but that figure
has not been reached as yet. This
morning 100 empties were placed
at the mines.

ENGINEERS MAKE
REPORTON ALLEY
Statement Made to Directors
Shows Theater Not Encroaching.
Enginers representing <he McCray
interests, the West Virginia
Amusement Co. and the city reported
to the City Board of Affairs
at a opening of the special meeting
this afternon that they had decided
the McCray Garage encroached on
Ogden avenue nine inches and that
the building of the West Virginia
Amuement Co. would encj-oach on
the avenue three-fourth of an inch
at one end and one-fourth of an
inch at the other end.
Supplementing mia reiwn, uv??ever.
F. D. Brady explained that
only the foudation of the theater
building would encroach on the
avenue as the neat-work of the
structure would be exactly on the
alley line when completed.
At 3 o'clock this afternoon, u.
motion was made by Director W.
E. Arnett that the line reported
by the enginers be established as
the street line of Ogden avenue.
This motion, however, was followed
by a lengthy protest by Attorney
French McCrav, who maintained
that a part of the street as
reported by the engineers had
been dedicated to the city by the
property owners for use as a
street and tbat this dedication was
accepted by the city. He claimed
that the fact that the city had
paved the street was proof that it
was city property.

to Mrs.' Rosier. "I feel that your
local organization Is doing -srt excellent
work and I would recommend
that other organizations
carry on similar censorships."
Mr. Hays was one of a number
of interesting speakers at the national
convention. He addressed
the Women's Clubs Federation at
length, dwelling on his plans for
purging the motion pictures of
America .He plans to bejein on
the producers, since, he declares,
"the only way to purify movies is
to start at the source.'
All the delegates from this city

Hays' address. Besides Mrs.
Rosier, there were two other official
delegates from the local
club: Mrs. Levi Harr. a member

53 Days' Supply on Hand,
j WASHINGTON*, July 7. ? DeclI
sion o? the anthracite coal mine
i operators and union representatives
to meet again today was taken a3
an indication at least of continued
hope of reaching an agreement
through the conference called by
President Harding to consider
methods of securing a resumption
of work in the industry. No statement
was forthcoming from eithei
side, however, as to the trend of
developments on adjustment of
yesterday's meeting, which was
said to have been without definite
results.
Meanwhile the bituminous strike
situation, negotiations in which
have been deferred until Monday,
is pressing itself more and more
upon the attention of 'officials as
to the matter of the public's coal
supply.
Canvass of . the coal, stocks of
electrical and artificial gas public
utility concerns throughout the
country as of June 15, showed an
average of fifty-three days supply
of coal on hand, according to a
statement issued today by the chief
of tho coal division of the Commerce
Department.
"A great, many utilities," he
saidr "are receiving current sup
plies rrom npn-uiiioii production and
on the basis of their current encroachment
on stocks it seems that
their stocks would last about 12 to
15 weeks.
