Balance on hand $154.95 Miscellaneous i::coLic 156.60 Great American Photodrama of Patriotism, Starring Empey. Manager Cox. of the Reynolds Theatre, has scored the scoop of years In motion pictures by obtaining "Over- the Top," the Vitagraph special in which Sergeant Arthur Guy Empey, author of the famous book, appears in the leading role. "Over the Top" was shown here last night to a pr.cked house and will be shown again to-night. "Over the Top," in book form, is the most widely read and probably the best known of any book publish ed in recent years. Its sale is sr.id to have been the greatest and it is known that more than 3,000,000 have read it. This probably makes Empey the best known individual outside of public life whom the war has produced. "Over the Top," in picture form, presents the high light3 of Empey's thrilling narrative of action in No Man's Land, with a strong dramatic story knitting the incidents together. In addition to Empey, there are in the cast a number of well known screen favorites, including Lois Mere dith and James Morrison in the prin cipal supporting roles, "Mother" Mary Maurice, Arthur Donaldson, Julia Swayne Goraon, Nellie Ander son, and Betty Blythe. More than 7,500 regular U. S soldiers were used in making trench scenes, which were staged at Camp Wheeler, near Macon, Ga., by special permit of the War Department.

VINOL MAKES GOOD BLOOD Positive Convincing Proof Many so-called remedies for anae mia are only so in name. Their mak ers are afraid to prove their claims by telling what their medicines contain. The only way to be honest with the people is to let them know what they are paying for. Here is the Vinol formula. When the doctor knows what a medicine contains, it ceases to be a patent medicine. T Cod Liver and Beef Peptones, Iron and " Manganese Peptonatea, Iron and Am monium Citrate, Lime and SodaOlycero phoapbatea, Caacaria. Any doctor will tell you that the in gredients of Vinol, as named above, will enrich the blood and banish anae mia and create strength.
