Born, about three weeks ago,

George is tickled plum silly,
rubbing bis nose against her

card on (leorge's daughter, and
when he was invited in to see
her he naturally looked upon
the wrong baby. Cutting his
eye around, he saw a baby with
a stubby, Boebuekiaii nose.
"Thai one looks more like me,"
he remarked And sure enough
it was his?tagged with the
name of some one else. "I'd
know that Boebuekiaii, dramat?
ic nose anywhere,'' laughed

Theatrical.
The uplift of an entire com?
munity through the faith and
belief thnt'Movc is stronger than
hate," on the part of one little
girl plays an important part in
'?Polly of the Storm Country,"
in which Mildred Karris Chap?
lin will be seen in her second
First National Exhibitors' Cir?
cuit attraction Thursday at the
Amiizu Theater.
As Polly Hopkins, Mr?. Chap?
lin purl rays the role of a girl
wedged between a most sordid
environment and burning desire
to create and instill happiness
into those about her. Obstacles
that come in her way are
brought about through the faith?
lessness of a rich woman and the
cruelty of the man this woman
is going to marry. I'elly sees
her entire family taken from
j her by the very people sho is
trying to aid. Ixive turns to
hate.
And when the rainbow encir?
cles the clouds over the "storm
country," the hate bus been su- '
perseded by love and the entire
settlement is reverent to the lit?
tle girl that brought peace and
contentment to thorn.?adv.
