Pinney—"Mutt and Jeff," musical comedy. Majestic—Sessue Hayakawa in 'His Birthright;" also vaudeville. Strand — Pauline Frederick, in " Paid in Full." AT THE PINNEY Mutt and Jeff Musical Comedy. Mutt and Jeff started a tidal wave of merriment that has been continu i ous and raultiplylns year b > ,ye "' sinre its inception. Like Bud Fisher's daily cartoons, as long as Mr. Hill is able to offer new comedy features each sea son, so long will "Mutt and Jeff" play its yearly engagement to capacity au diences. They appear in musical com edy a second time at the Pinney to night. Situations ludicrous in the extreme are suggested by these funny fellows, and one does not have to stretch his imagination to any great extent to conceive just how funny they will be, as real "honest-to-goodness" cow boys. Mr. Hill lias furnished an entire new scenic equipment in keeping with the bright gorgeous costumes that rival a j S 2.00 Broadway production, and a [ chorus of real beauties who can both an< rau | sing and dance. Theatregoers who j have laughed at Mutt and Jeff, per haps many times, will find this offer llejing so entirely new as to have the ef I feet of being an innovation. j | ; I I PEOriE VIEW THE T Enthusiastic Crowds Greet Spe cial as it Journeys Toward Southeast—Report to State Headquarters. Thousands of citizens of southern Idaho gathered at the stations between and including. Kuna and Shoshone Sunday to view the war relics curried on the trophy special touring the state Lor the Victory loan, the state commit tee here lias been advised. A strong spring wind didn't keep the people from turning out to welcome the train, examine the giant cannons, tanks, gas bombs and other engines of destruction used in the great world war. State Chairman Gwinn declared Sunday night when the day's work for the party with the train was finished and which was close to midnight at Sho shone, that the spirit shown by the crowds in the southern Idaho towns made him hopeful that Idaho would be one of the first states to report its quota raised. PEOPLE BEHIND LOAN. "The people are behind this Victory Loan," Chairman Gwinn said." You can't tell me that the thousands who gathered to see these war relics and who listened so Intently to the speakers arê not heart and soul and pocketbook behind the government to the finish. 1 am expecting Idaho to go across neck and neck with the first states in the union if not actually the first. Governor D. W. I)a.vis was with the train and will remain with it the entire week. He spoke at every sta tion on Sunday's schedule, which in cluded Kuna, Mountain Home, Ham mett. Glenns Ferry, King Hill, Bliss, Gooding and Shoshone. Today- the train is covering the Hailey and Hillcity branches of the Oregon Short Line, Captain Edgar T Hawley, who recently returned from overseas, where he served with the aviation department, was officer of the day on the special and had charge of the arrangements introducing the speakers and making out the programs for entertainment whicli are adapted to each town according to the length of time alloted the train therein.

McMasters, Oregon Short Line agent at Glenns Ferry; Major John Thomas, a promin ent banker of Gooding, at Gooding, Mr. Thomas pledged the çupport of .the banks of Gooding county to the Victory Loan. "We are not wanting to make ja cent profit on the Victory Loan," he declared. "Our banks will give the people all the credit they ask for the purchase of these bonds nnd will carry them as long as they tell us they need to be carried. All we ask the people of Gooding county to do is to come in and make their' subscriptions and we will guarantee to see them through." MEET IN THEATRE. Private Bert Bates in the artillery service, who saw action on five dif ferent fronts in France, is the versa tile entertainer of the bunch with the special. Mr. Bates vividly pictures battlefield scenes and incidents and holds the crowds In close attention. Owing to a cold driving wind, a meet ing was held in the Baugh theatre at Shoshone last night instead of in the open air at the train as is the custom. The theatre was jammed with people who braved the storm to view the war trophies and hear the speakers. Gov ernor Davis, chairman Gwinn, Private Bates, G. J. White, county chairman of the Victory Loan drive in Lincoln county, were the speakers. Captain Hawley presided. When Mr. Gwinn called on those who would pledge themselves to back up the Victory Loan to go on record by raising their hand the response was practically unanimous. Sergeant Mark Shields is with the train organizing and start ing organizations of the World War Veterans, which includes all soldiers, sailors and marines of the great war. Every returned service man who pos sibly can, is urged to bo at the train when the special makes his home town, If it is on the schedule of the Idaho tour, In order to get in touch with this organization.

Very fav orable reports have been received from many who have used mercolized wax dur ing the freckling season. The wax seems to possess unusual properties which com pletely absorb the freckles, with no harm ful effect whatever. The complexion im proves wonderfully, becoming as soft an a rose petal, and îis delicately tinted. Get an ounce of ordinary mercolized wax at any druggist's, spread a thin layer of it over the entire face every night for a wdiile. washing this off in the morning. For rough, spotty skin, sallowness, black heads, pimples and all cutaneous blem ishes. this treatment is superior to any other.—Adv. SHARP REDUCTIONS "A constant 'hiker' over all con ditions of roads, my shoes were hard on my feet until I discovered Neolin Soles. And as for wear! Neolin Soles give twice the service of soles I formerly used." writes H. Noyes ColUnson, Hazelton, Pa. This long service means sharp re ductions in those big shoe bills, for it is because of worn out soles that most shoes are discarded. Buy Neolin soled shoes, not only for yourself, but for the whole family, children in cluded. Also, take your old shoes to the repairman and have them re bottomed with Neolin Soles.
