It ia generally conceded that the motion picture haa not reached, to any degree of permanency, quite a number of peraons In America. Just why It has not is more or less of a mystery. Those few which the screen has not reached are numbered among the older folks who still doubt that motion pictures can portray a story In an interesting manner. However, theae doubting Thomases will have a new Joy in witnessing the remarkable drama adapted from the famous story, "Monto Cristo," written by the immortal Alexandre Dumas. It is to have its local pre miere at Jimmie's Playhouse next Wednesday and Thursday. It waa produced by William Fox under the direction of Emmett J. Flynn. The story, which has been read by millions and which will ever remain as a classic of adventure, love and romance, provides an excellent theme for a screen drama: It ia possible through the scope of the motion pic ture camera to carry the audience to France, the locale of the story, and there depict in a faithful way the stirring adventures of the youth first known as Edmond Dantes. Few, if. any of the older genera tion, who have read at all, have nev er read this story. For this reason many who seldom go to the motion picture theatre, will do so when this great Fox special opens here. This has proved to be the case in other cities where the picture has already been shown. The local management states that "Monte Cristo" is without an equal as a screen drama. W. C. T. U . The county W. C. T. U. met in an nual convention at the Methodist Church on Saturday Sept. 23. An interesting program had been pre pared by the executive officers and was carried out. in its entirety from the devotional by Rev. W. B. Cun ningham to the dosing election of county officers. Mrs. Ehfhardt of Obion and Miss Bonnie Maxwell, of Troy, being un avoidably absent their places were filled, Miss Euline Cummings, of Rives, responding to the welcome ad dress in a most pleasing manner. In the memorial service Mrs. J. T. Perkins, of Martin, read the Scrip tural lesson, and as the names of Mrs. Pattie Carroll, of Kenton, Mrs. Bruce Campbell, Mrs. Bob Cloys, Mrs. Nan nie Parker, and Mrs. Frank Pardue, of Union City, promoted comrades, were called Mrs. W. L. White and Mrs. D. A. Peeler gave the promises and consolation from the Word. Mrs. Montgomery, of Kenton, paid a beau tiful tribute to Mrs. Pattie Carroll, so long a faithful leader of the Ken ton Union. Mrs. Robins, of McKen zie, and the co-president spoke in loving remembrance of her. The service closed with noontide prayer by Mrs. W. L. White. At noon an abundant and delicious lunch was served. Much praise is due Mrs. D. A. Luten and Mrs. W. L. Bryan for faithful and efficient work in serving the lunch. This abundant lunch was furnished by all the unions. The co-president's address in the State vice president's in the after noon and that of Rev. E. M. Mathis on "Christian Citizenship" were all forceful and instructive. The following co-officers were elected for the year: President, Mrs. W. J. Caldwell, of Rives treasurer, Mrs. Guy Mosley, of Kenton; record ing secretary, Mrs. Frances J. Elam, of Rives; corresponding secretary, Miss Birdie Waddell, of Union City.

RICH GOWNS IN "HER HUSBAND'S TRADEMARK" Gloria Swanson has fully estab lished the claim of being one of the best dressed women on the screen, and at the Playhouse Monday and Tuesday she offers fuller and more conclusive proof, for she is playing the title roll of a picture, which has as its central theme the beautiful dressing of a beautiful woman. This picture is "Her Husband's Trade mark," a Paramount production, and its theme is founded on the strange creed of a man who believed that a show of wealth would attract wealth, and believing thus, gowned his wife in a most extravagant fashion. But he built his creed on a false assump tion and his plans came tumbling down with such completeness that they resulted in his death. It all makes a strangely unusual story, forceful, dramatic, tense. As an ex ample of the lavish dressing of one woman, the central character, it has seldom, if ever, been equalled and Gloria Swanson is surely a perfect wearer of gowns in addition to her undoubted ability as an actress.
