the Great Southern Lumber Companv
continued to operate their plant,
stacking lumber until it was lined on
both sides of the N. O. G. N. tracks,
almost half way to Lees Creek. The
plant was operated just as long as
insurance could be secured, and at
one time is was estimated that they
had several million dollars' worth of
lumber stacked. In this manner they
kept several hundred men employed,
when work was scarce, and business
continued as usual. In the event that
the present orders will not permit
shipping in proportion to the amount
of lumber produced, the same plan
will be followed.

The scenes of "Bound in Morocco"
are laid in Algiers and it is a snappy
twentieth century photoplay filled
with comedy which travels at high
speed throughout. The picturesque
country of Algiers, which has been
the scene of numerous great paint
ings, is the home of Douglas Fair
Banks' lâtest picture produced under
Artcraft auspices. The action has tc
do with Arabians, beauties of the
harem, fights with bandits, etc., in
which Mr. Fairbanks portrays a char
acter quite different from any he
has hitherto essayed.
In addition to the features named,
great traveling caravans, with their
tawdry camels, goats and other ani
mals are shown. There are battles
and chases oh the Arabian desert,
in which hundreds take part and in
which Mr. Fairbanks does his custom
ary daredevil stunts, one of these
being a dive from the top of a high
sand dune upon the neck of an
Arabian rider, who is passing by on
a swiftly speeding horse beneath.
This is followed by an exciting hand
to hand fight, in which, of course,
Mr. Fairbanks emerges, of course.
There are numerous situations in
this story, in addition to the Fair
banksen methods, which makes this
story unusually interesting. The
photoplay wiU be shown at the Magic

job which you ordered yesterday ard
expected to get the day before and
do not get it, please bear in mind
that the Enterprise is going to make
a desperate effort to move into our
new quarters in the Spekenhier

necessary to take the several ma

luck we have. The new quarters

additional equipment will be pur
chased, so as to make the Enterprise
the mqft modern printing office to
be found in any city of its size in

Rebel yell from many thousand
throats was the outward manifesta
tion tonight of a great surge of pa
triotism which followed the presenta
tion to the United Confederate Vet
