EMOTIONAL ACTRESS AT EMPRESS THEATER SN * THE ETERNAL SIN” Floience Heed, one of the foremost emotional actresses of screen or sta%e, has never played a stronger role than in tonight’s big feature booked at the Empress,—the seven reel Selznic production “The Eternal Sin." The story of Lucretia Borgia stands out on the page of history, mysterious, alluring, fascinating, dia bolical,—a monster in fairest form. The picture, lavishly staged, with the pomp, ceremony and splendor of the olden days of court and king; acted with dramatic strength and perfection, is one to tllrill and en thrall, to fascinate and repel. It is beautiful. It is horrible. You may shudder at, but you will not miss seeing it. Completing the program is a Bathe News, and a rollicking good two reel Harold Lloyd comedy, “His Busy T)ay." Sunday night, the big treat, May Allison, daintiest of screen come dians, in the most adorable and funniest of farces, “Fair and Warm er." It's a farce with the elevator cocktail, and the sky the limit of joy—a hilarious farce of matrimony and misunderstanding. Is your hus band too perfect ? Or do you keep your wife guessing? Or if you have neither husband nor wife,—why not enjoy your neighbor's troubles? The cocktail and the morning after scenes are famous, even among the outstanding scenes in great farces. They are pictures to be laughed over, and never forgotten. Yet so skillful is the handling that they combine delicacy and punch. In short, “Fair and Warmer” is one of those things of joy,-—a wonder fully human, hysterically funny com edy, without sting or vulgarity. Just remember the time and the place, Sunday night, at the Em press, WHOLESALE LUMBER PRICES TAKE 15 PER CENT DROP SPOKANE, Oct. 22 (by Associated Press).

Dater, district engineer for the for est service with headquarters at Portland, Oregon, has returned to Ketchikan from Carrol Inlet where he has been making a survey of the water power resources there. Mr. Dater was accompanied by C. A. Lord, another engineer of the Port land office. Mr. Dater stated that there was suffeient power available on Carrol Inlet for a hundred ton pulp mill. He said that the storage capacity of the lakes there was about four times as great as had been estimat I od. A complete survey of the watershed was not made owing to weather conditions, heavy clouds hanging over the greater part of the area while the party was in the field. Sufficient data was gathered to determine the approximate cost of a prospective development. The lo cation, size and type of dams and other necessary data was roughly determined. • One of the underlying purposes of ■ the survey was to determine the cost of a complete survey of the water power resources of the coun try. Congress is to be asked this win ter for an appropriation for the work. The amount of money re | quired will be determined from data i gathered by Mr. Dater. When the survey is completed should congress appropriate the I money, sufficient information will I be on file, and available for the j use of the prospective investor, | for the latter to determine whether or' not a given field would prove a | profitable location for a pulp mill.
