By Mr. R. L. M. Once more the hokum bucket has been dipped for the entertainment of the masses. “Mighty Lak a Rose” is hokum of the most senile variety, and as the majority of its kind, it could truthfully be said to be a picture with a universal appeal. “Mighty Lak a Rose," while it arouses the thought that it is steeped in incon gruities, pleased us, withal. We shed no tears for our lachrymal glands are sub servient to our cynical faculties, but we followed the trend of the story with inter est. There are flaws, of course, even with the able Edwin Carewe as director, but, after all, why point out flaws when you were pleased. Music hath charms to soothe the savage beast, but charming an East Side gangster is quite another thing, and it is a novel sight to see a Molly Malone of the Underworld listening to “Lead Kindly Light.” “Mighty Lak a Rose” should be a great box office attraction and that seems to be the goal toward which producers look. There is pathos, humor, dramatic quali ties and pure sentiment. After all, it is hokum that makes the world go ’round. The acting is deserving of commenda tion. James Rennie has long been a fa vorite of ours, and in “Mighty Lak a Rose” he has a role that permits real histrionic ability. Dorothy Mackaill is unknown, but we wish to see more of her. The part of Slippery Eddie Foster was handled with consumnate skill by one of the best character actors we have ever seen. The comedy was put over with the deft touch of the natural actor. Bull Morgan and his moll, Molly Malone, were real types. The average picture of the Underworld is a replica of Alias Jimmy Valentine, which, as you know, was entirely untrue to life. It seems that directors must have tin-pan cabarets with suggestive dancers, ragged • urchins and Neanderthal types with cauliflower ears—and derby hats. In many ways it is an unusual picture: One over which buxom matrons may shed tears as they sit in the darkness clasping hands with their better half; one to arouse philanthropical yearnings. We wonder what kind of a pull Jimmy had that he was permitted to retain civil ian garments, and we declare that if a neighbor ever attempts to play one of those one-stringed guitars he had best keep out of our path. “Mighty Lak a Rose,” as an entertain ing picture, meets with our full approval; as a slice from life, we condemn it. Extract from the Collins Blade: “Every dyed-in-the-wool fight fan in America will be at Shelby, Montana, the Fourth.” We know one who won’t. It is rather surprising that firemen are buffaloed by indications of a little wet ness. Who did Jack Dempsey ever lick? is a common question. Why doesn’t Tommy Gibbons enter into competition with Char ley Paddock ? NO TIME TO LOSE A young Houston mother rushed into the house the other day in the utmost ex- citement calling out to her mother to put an iron on the stove as quickly as possible. “What is the matter?” asked the mother. “A dog has bitten Tommy and I am afraid it was mad. Oh, hurry up, mother, be as quick as you can.” • “Are you going to try to cauterize the wound ?” “No—l’ve got to iron that blue skirt before I can wear it to go after the doc tor. Do be in a hurry.”— F.x. IF If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you; If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you But make allowance for their doubting, too; If you can wait and not be tired by wait ing, Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies, Or being hated, don’t give way to hating, And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise. If you can dream—and not make dreams your master; If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim, If you can meet with Triumph and Dis aster And treat those two imposters just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken Twisted by knaves and made a trap for fools, Or w itch the things you gave your life to, broken; And stoop and build ’em up with worn out tools. If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with kings—nor lose the common touch, If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you. If all men count with you; but none too much; If you can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds worth of distance run, Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it. And—what is more —you’ll be Man, my son! —Rudyard Kipling. A DOG’S LIFE A dog’s life, if I may recall, Is not so dreadful after all; For instance, there’s the Pekinese, That takes his nap on downy fleece, And nibbles dainties, sweet and pure, And gets a bath and manicure, And wears a wrist watch and a purse, And keeps a valet and nurse. And there’s the saucy Airdale imp That puts a large and healthy crimp In any rumors running rife That his valet might be the dog’s-life life; He gets three squares and sometimes four, And romps twelve hours a day or more; His only care is having fun— And yet he’s not the only one. For there’s the small boy’s lop-eared pup— ’A no-good scamp, from hind legs up; That loves the things that small boys love, And knows just what they’re thinking of; And does a lot of jolly tricks. And chases squirrels and cats and chicks: And sneaks up stairs with cautious tread, And shares a small boy’s board and bed. ¥ And then the high-brow Boston Bull, With all the pomp and social pull; Beside the Spaniel and the Chow — I say, dog-gone it, anyhow— When I’m upset and on the shelf, I’d like to be a dog myself, And have an end to mortal strife, And live the lucky dog’s-life life. • —Mai Rose. CHARITY “If any little word of yours May make a life the brighter, If any little song of yours May make a heart the lighter, God help you speak the little word And take your bit of singing, And drop it in some lonely vale To set the echoes ringing. If any little love of yours May make a life the sweeter, If any little care of yours May make a friend’s the fleeter, If any lift of yours may ease The burden of another, God give you love, and care, and strength, To help your toiling brother.” —Author Unknown. TRY IT For a good old-fashioned remedy For blues of every kind, Take equal parts of courage, And tranquility of mind, And mix with this, Some work we love, And add a little cheer, Then shake it well together And take it through the year.
