The photoplay follows the au thor's story with exactitude, and the characters on the screen are the characters from the pages of the novel to the life. It is unnecessary to say anything about the plot let it suffice that it concerns a group of the most inter esting characters ever presented. . A prologue gives ample explana tion of the story proper, accounting 'or the actions and the punishment of the various characters. Monroe Salisbury, as tbe cynical LaGrange, is easily the outstanding character in tbe photoplay. Jack Livingston as the struggling artist; Kathleen Kirkham, as the de signing Mrs. Taine; Jane Novak, as the pure-hearted Sybil; Edward Pell as the sensuous Rutlidge; Lurline LyoD8, as the pitiful Myra Willard; Arthur Tavures, as her persecuted brother; Jack McDonald, as the dis gusingly crippled Taine, and Fred Bnrns. as the likeable forest ranger, all do colorful, vividly splendid work in big roles. The exteriors are things of beau ty. Tbe rugged, towering moun tains of San Bernardino county and the orange groves and rose gardens around Redlands, the locale of the story, have been exquisitely photo graphed into scenes of rare charm It took eight months to film "The Eyes of the World" and tbe photo play shows it in the careful work ing out of the smallest detail. The picture is one of tbe best ever shown in the city. Its story is big and vital, but yet full of the human interest of every day occur reoces among every-day people Star Theatre to Open the management of tne new Star Theatre announce their open ing for Saturday, October 18th matinee at Z:dU and night show at 8:00. They have had more or less trouble in installing their electrica aparatus and have been disappoint ed in not being able to open as per their previous announcement, but this could not be avoided. The Democrat is informed that every thing bas now been tested out, is in first-class shape and there will be no further delays. The new Star has booked all tbe very best at tbe disposal of the film companies, list of which will be printed in these columns in a week or so. It is not known what will be screened on Saturday, but we are assured will be worth the price whatever it is. A $2,500 piano orchestra wil! furnish you music on tbe opening date as well as in the future About fifty friends and neighbors of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Drescher and Mrs. Louise Col vert gathered at their home north of town last Thursday evening to make a last neighborly visit and to extend sin cere wishes for happiness and suc cess in their new home at Monte Vista. Colo., for which place Mms. Colvert and Drescher will leave in a few days. Mr. Drescher having already located at that place. The evenings proceedings were a sur prise to tbe outgoing neighbors and was very much enjoyed by all who were present. Six students of the Telegraph Dept. were placed by the Cbillicothe Business College in good railroad positions the past week, the Union Pacific Santa Fe and C & N. W. having wired in for operators. Corn Stalk Poison Past experience indicates that there is a lot of trouble among horses and cattle every autumn as a result of pasturing stalk fields and feeding shock f dder. Seasons vary, one fall sometimes developing twice as much trouble as an average year. Com, sorghum and kaffir corn. when stunted by a drouth, appear to develop some poisonous product which causes immense damage. Farmers should use every reason able precaution to avoid disastrous losses. The following instructions are based upon extensive observa tions covering a number of dry years. It pays to put as much as possible of the corn and sorghum in the silo. Tbe heating and fermentation in tbe silo seem to evaporate or other wise dispose of the poisonous princi ple. Tbe next best thing is to cut the corn up into shock fodder. When we have open dry weather the poisonous principle gradually disap pears from tbe fodder and it may safely be fed after January 1. If we have a dry fall this fodder.be comes safe a little sooner. On the other band if we have a rainy fall the fodder is more or less danger ous all through the winter. It is. therefore, highly advisable to haul fodder and put it in dry sheds. Leaving it out in the open is taking a chance on rendering it absolutely unfit for feeding during the whole winter. By all means, muzzle the horses when you start in to shucking corn. as a geaera-a!e. if you fear cow stalk poisoning. This precaution will save many teams of valuable wo k horses. Slight Drop Noted With fair price committees es tablished over the country and dis trict attorneys keeping a close watch on food hoarders and pro fiteers, the high cost of living has been definitely halted and is show ing some slight signs of a downward direction. In a statement issued during the past week Attorney General Palmer, whose department is keeping a keen eye on the price situation, announced that already retail prices in staples and or dinary commodities in a large area of the country bad shown a drop of about 15 per cent compared with a month ago when the Government began its national drive. Indica tions are that commodity prices will not advance beyond the limits they have already reached and that f.-orr row cn tivy .-ill decrease Mrs. Hush Mudd and Mrs. Lee Pierceall returned from Hannibal Monday evening where they had been called on account of the death of the infart child of Mr. and Mrs. Francis Murphy.
