THEOAJMM Who Should See This Wonderful Attraction » i. Teachers in the public schools should see 11 Gleopratra . 1 ' They will say it is a graphic and fortunate way to teach Ancient History, as did the New York heads of schools. Milliners and dressmakers should see the film. They will find it an inspiring source of new ideas, and an instigator and Stimulator of original fashions. The tired business man will find a new interest in life after he has seen ' ' Cleoprata. V Oleoprata' ' has all the mystery of a dead civilisation—the Sphinx, the pyramids, astrology and crystal gazing—high priests and the sacred gods of Egypt. People wan? to see it. The children will like "Cleoprata" better than their favor ite fairy talés because of the rich settings and costumes. A Theda Bara Su per Production di rect from its sensa tional run of three months at the Lyric Theatre, New York 2 . v: 3. 4. ( i L* 5. Jto t What the New York Papers Say of Cleopatra. Uncommonly fine picture. The finest sort of film, and movie fans are certain to flock to it. From a scientific standpoint—a triumph for the director. "The navy bak tie at Actium is made most impressive, and the hand ling of the charriots also furnishes many a thrilling mo ment. Costumes so thoroughly in attune with the peri od they are likely to cause not a little comment—Tunes. The picture was produced with gorgeous effects in set tings and costumes and was photographed with much pictorial beauty. The scenes develop in a crescendo of voluntary appeal. Miss Bara was more daring in her impersonation of Cleoprata than is customary with ac tresses of the spoken stage.—World. One of the most sumptuous and sensational motion pic * ture spectacles that nave been produced. In largeness of scope and appearance of solid reality its ensemble scenes have had no superior and few equals. The mas sive scenes of ancient Rome and Alexandria were su ■perb. Miss Bara's frank theatricalism protects her work from any undue suggestiveness.—Herald., There is, first of all, fine picture workmanship, excellent direction, a fine verisimilitude of the life of Rome and Egypt in dress costumes and architecture, and many exciting scenes showing large armies fighting in a big sea battle. It will be some time before there will be found a type into which the savage beauty and person ality of Miss Bara enters more perfectly in dress and action: yet not to be criticized, as it is under stood that Egypt's Qneen used to act that way.—Sun. The picture is so big that one is completely overwhelm ed . It seems as if a fortune must have been expended in each scene which appears on the screen, and the spec tacle simply beggars description. The Fox production is flawless in its setting—magnificent beyond compare. The performance of the star is at all times vastly inter ing. Never has Miss Bara ? ooked so really beautiful, d if the original Oleo were just half so lovely as her prototype we do not blame Antony for renouncing Rome.—Tribune. Miss Theda Bara, playing the part of Oleoprata in Wil liam Fox's latest feature photoplay, if at her best. She is a real Oleoprata. This picture made its debut at the Lyric Theatre last night, and immediately fonnd its place in the film sun. As a spectacle this new film sur passes even "The Birth of a Nation. As a spectacle it ranks second to none.—Telegram. esti an MATINEE AND NIGHT ■ Montpelier Opera House, Saturday, March 22nd. « « MILLIONS NOW AVAILABLE FOR ROAD BUILDING Ogden, Utah, March 17.—The de velopment of the national forest road systems is given great impetus by the terms of the Post Office Appropri ations Act which the president re cently signed. Besides increasing by $200,000,000 the total fund available under the federal aid roads Act, the new law makes available for expen diture by thfc Secretary of Agricul ture $9,000,000 for roads and tfails within or partly within the forests. The law also authorizes the Secre * ,tary of War to transfer to the Secre tary of Agriculture material, equip ment, and supplies suitable for high way improvement and not needed by the War department,. While most of this will be distributed among the highway commissions of the stales for use on federal aid road projects, not to exceed 10 per cent may be re served by the Secretary of Agricul ture for use in building national for est roads or other roads constructed under his direct supervision. The $9,000,000 fund may be used for maintenance as well as survey and construction. The new legisla tion, like the-federal aid roads act, makes the building of jroads and trallB necessary for the use and de velopment of national forest resourc es or desirable for the proper admin istration, protecion and Improvement of any forgst where co-operative local contributions can be obtained; but lu addition to this It contains a new fea ture of much importance. The new feature permits the sec retary of agriculture without the co operation of local officials to build . and maintain "any road or trail with in. a national forest which he finds necessary for the proper administra tion, protection, and improvement of . such forest, or which in his opinion is of national importance." In the view of forestry officials this law is the most important utep ever taken for,rapid development of a national fqrest roads system, and will be of in estimable benefit to the local public. "The measure gives us much broa der scope for a fully developed pro gram than we have had before," says Henry 8. Graves, chief of the forest service, in commenting on the nqw law. "Under the Federal aid roads act we had available, for roadB within or partly within the forests, one mil lion dollars a year, available until ex pended. Owing to the war, which practically halted-the work, we had an accumulated balance of $2,500, 000 unexpended and another $1,609, 000 which will become available July "Of the new appropriation $3,000,- ! 000 is immediately available, and $3,000,000 will become available Ju ly X. There will also be available $400,000 or more from the ten per cant df national forest receipts. Ai togeher, therefore, we have In sight for the coming year about $10,000, (900, If we can use it advantageously. Whatever we can't use advantage ously so soon will be added to the $4,000,000 of new money that be comes available the following year. "We already have our plans for approved road projects sufficiently shaped up so that a prompt start will be possible as soon as the weather permits. Hi some cases, however, these plans must necessarily be sus pended on account of pending propo sals for the creation of national parks affecting national forest lands. It would be obviously improper to ex pend the funds Intended and voted 1. i by congress (or the development and protection of the national forests on areas which may soon cease to he na tional forests. >. "This legislation will not only make it easier to protect the forests without costly expenditures to fight bad tires in inaccessible localities, but will also help enormously the many small communities and scattered set ters in and near the forests who now suiter for lack of roads. It. wilt also enable the construction of impor tant trunk line roads crossing the mountains, with suitable provision of subsidiary roads, unquestionably be marked develop ment of recreational use of these great national playgrounds with their wealth of too little known attrac tions. Altogether, the opening up of the forests to more complete and varied use by the public, which is the fundamental object of their admin istration, will be tremendously ad vanced." Under the law, preference is given to the employment of honorably dis charged soldiers, sailors, and rines, for the required labor.

Not only was the contest for the speakership between JameB R. Mann of Illinois, and Frederick- H.

Naming of chairmanships of all of the committées was based entirely up on the ground of seniority and there fore of length of service and experi As the republican majority of forty-six in the 66th congress is dis tributed generally from Maine to California, and comprises such South »tates as Virginia, Maryland. Kentucky, Tennessee, Missouri and Oklahoma as well, the domination of tlvat party will be thoroughly nation al, in contrast to the complete rule of the souih during the past six years in the committees of both house and senate, several of the executive de partments and the presidency. It is apparent that the republicans ! ar « anxious to get down to the busi euce. ■ 1 1, nos. of legislating for the country.

The last was no exception. It took Gray seven years to write his Elegy, yet m»uy modern writers are convinced they could have done botter werk iu an hour. THE IDAHO IH KING OF ALL . WORLD'S FIGHTING SHIPS The battleships Nevada, Utah, Florida, Delaware, Wyoming, Arkan sas, Oklahoma and North Dakota are considered first-class fighting ships. Only a few years ago they were launched, and America acclaimed them the last word in warship con struction and the best ships afloat, but if that entire grand fleet met the Idaho, Uncle Sam's latest fighting craft, and gave battle, there would be nothing left of them except wreckage and u few surviving sailors, says the Public Ledger of Philadel phia, on March 8. The Idaho, with its great guns, could steam in a circle and sink the entire fleet without getting so much as a scratch, for not a gun aboard any of the so-called crack dread naughts could land a shell on the giant fighting craft. 8p far as the older fighting ships are concerned—those launched 10 years or more ago—the Idaho could give battle to all of them. Strategy Unchanged, Naval strategy is Just the same to day as in the days of John Paul Jones. Briefly, it is the trick of hitting the enemy with the greatest amount of shells before he hits you. The Idaho fills the bill, for not only has the craft been fitted with the longest fange guns In the world, but her great speed, more than 25 miles' an hour, permits her to stay out of the range of any battleship afloat. Says Capt. C. T. Vogelgesang, com mander of the ship: "The Idaho ts the greatest fighting machine in the world. There is not u ship In our na vy that can touch her. The average first-cluss battleship can be sunk by the guns of the Idaho at a distance of 12 miles, and lighter craft sent to the bottom at a distance of 15 miles." There are other navy ships, but Just one Idaho, and, view the dtaft from any angle you wish, it is impos sible to describe her Without drawing on your store of adjectives. As Skip per Vogelgesang puts it: The Idaho is mightiest and grand est ship that floats. To substantiate such a statement, consider that the Idaho mounts 12 14-Inch guns. These are arranged is four turrets of three guns each. Two turrets are forward and two aft, but these are so arranged that the entire battery can be fired at time. one What these great guns are capable of doing can be drawn from the work of our navy guns In France. Power of Guns. They had a range of more thari 30 staUar JXrtmns. "but' of* shorted range.' Each gun hurls a 1500-uound projectile through the atr at the rate of 2800 feet per sedond, and is capa? ble of firing three shots everv minute ciuf minute? 6 '" d d ° " To supplement tho big guns the craft has 14 6-inch guns and four ble anti-aircraft guns. Then thede are a number of small 6-pounders and rapid* firers. The sister ships of this craft, the New Mexico and Mississippi in commission, but neither approach es the Idaho In power. The keel of this ship was laid Jan uary 20, 1915. and when placed in commission the craft represents an investment of more than $18,900,000 The ship is 634 lest « inches long, are now 4 ! has a beam of 97 feet 4 inches, and a ' mean draft of 30 feet. Her displace- ' ment is 34,000 tons, and her Parson ! turbine engines, capable of develop ing 32.000 horsepower, will send her! through the water at a speed of 24 Î miles àn hour.
