Some of the best minds in the nation hare Joined together to fight what has been characterized as the moral menace of the morie. , The strides with which the cinema Industry lias grown has been one of the business ro mance of the century. Only a few years ago we were paying a nickel to see Alms shown in dingy storerooms pasalng as theatre. Today ve pay prices ranging from 25 cents into dol lar for seats in palatial playhouses with won derful ecenlc effecta ana brilliant musical ac companiments. Rock Island today is finishing a morjng picture theatre that Is to cost almost a half million dollars. It will be one of the handsomest in the west. Millions are being in rested in the business becauae of the hold that It haa upon the public. There Is no question but that the morie has dona good. It is shown In the churches and the schools to influence the young mind along religious and educational lines.' Many of the Standard plays have been filmed and those who could not afford to pay the prices charged for the spoken play can see it on the screen for, a comparatively small admission fee, one that allows the taking of a family for the same charge that would be made for a single admis sion to the uttered version. f It would be a mistake to say that the mov ing picture Industry is doomed to disintegration because of the demoralising atmosphere that has been Introduced by some of the money mad interests that are following the business. The, speaking stags has been having a similar ex perience. The accentuation of the ex note un questionably has been harmful, and eventually there must be a check put upon the extremes to which producers are ncvadays permitted to go. It's the false and exaggerated ia the morie that Injures. It does seem that the people engaged In the boatneee ought to realise that they hare gone the limit and that It la high time they saw the FtJtliorCIaadSieod.

' The Argus was reluctant to believe the alle gations, and, in order to get facta first hand, sent out an Investigator. The result of his inquiry is printed on another page, and it shows that the retailer is not aesponslble for conditions. Letters from jobbers and manu facturers are presented to support the position of the retailer. The truth is that he is pass ing through a critical period in his business-) because of the unsUbkneas of the production markets. His spring stocks were purchased at 'prices prevailing several months ago. In the meantime the manafacturer has been able to produce at smaller figures and he has an nounced his new prices through the press. The consumer takes it for granted that when 'a manufacturer announces that the prices of men s clothing hare been reduced 40 per cent that Immediately he should recetro the benefit of the cut ia Rock Island.

America Leads in Crime. Petit Migraine, In a talk about Major Migraine I described the other day the typical or usual aura or warning a dark spot or a dark spot surrounded with zig-sag flashes, at one side of the field of vision, lasting 20 min utes or more, before the onset of the one-sided head pain. In some cases there la first noticed dimness of rision on one side, in creasing until either right or left half of each field (each eye) is blind, before the head pain begina. In a few cases, instead of these visual warnings or Aurae patients notice sudden one-sided deareeae or ringing in the ear, or sudden loss of taste or some other sudden per version of the taste sense. Still others complain of a tingling in one arm followed by a numbness of that arm, preceding the headache; or hie numbness may give way to an ach ing of the arm instead of the head. In rare oases the aura takes the form or e transient loss or great impairment of speech, confusion of speech, strange mumbled efforts at speech or utter inability to speak. And accompanying this the patient cases an unnatural flushing may be noticed, perhaps limited to one side.

The characteristic one-sided head ache following these usual warn ings or aurae, with the nausea and vomiting after some hours of head ache, and the complete return to normal health when the migraine seizure has passed serve to indicate the nature of the otherwise inex plicable aurae. Now there are unquestionably many persons who suffer seizures Of minor migraine, migraine with a definite aura or warning sensa tion, but so light a headache after ward that the significance of the at tacks is misunderstood and the tell' tale headache is ascribed to some fanciful cause. Thus, one may ex perience sudden dizziness or sudden strange flashes of light at one side of the field of vision, or sudden flickering or half-blinding sensa tions in one eye, with a subsequent headache, not severe, but felt on one side of the bead and perhaps some nausea or even vomiting and how readily such a seizure is attributed to the non-existant "bil iousness!"

" By Mrs. Nellie A Fairbanks. (Copyright, 1920, by Wheeler Syn dicate, ino.) Bill Curtis rigorously applied the id stubby brush broom to his well worn suit, then stopped for a mo ment to gas out across the great green fields. For 16 years, weather permitting, fertl had watched and loved this time of day, when the sun was casting its lsst slanting raya. Tonight be was leaving the home he loved so well and the man who had shared his home and with whom he had worked for 16 years. That was the hard part of going. Something that looked suspicious ly like tears welled up in his hon est blue eyes, and he gated for a minute at the man at the sink, do ing up the supper dishes. As a rule this man was talkative, bat tonight he waa strangely silent The arduous task of making an old east look something like new was finally completed and Bill stepped out on the little platform that served as a plana. He looked sadly at the two empty arm chairs. Only one would be occupied la fu ture. "Hang It all! Bill Buttered. 1 ought to be the happiest man in all Plalarllla tonight." and for a moment the faithful man ia the kitchen was forgotten, and as 'Bill absently toyed with a lilac a rision of Marcia arose bafore hum.

The first few weeks had been un- oearaoie to Bill; then aa the monus and years passed he fell into that rut of being perfectly sat isfied with working hard all day and spending the long evenings with his faithful companion and his pipe. His little pile of money grew bigger each year until at last ha decided it was tins to go back to the old home and Marcia. His heart beat faster as he oictured the little vision in white, and he sighed happily as he again entered the little cottage. But his spirits drooped when he beheld Jim. sit ting with his head resting In his two hands, a picture ot despair. Going orsr. he placed hit hand oa Jim's shoulder and aaid: "We've spent some rery happy years here, old scout, but now I most be going back to Marcia. -I wish yon could sen her, Jim so email, with wary tresses and 7 "Yes, hat 16 yean makes aa aw ful difference, old man," Jim an swered. "Yes. yes," Bill murmured, half absently; "in soma people, but not Marcia." Looking across the room into the cracked old mirror. Bill beheld his shiny head. Could It be possible?

At last the time came when the comrades parted. Jim drove Bill over the two miles to the railroad station, and they silently pressed each other's hand, for neither could speak just then. Jim drove back to the lonely cot tage, seated himself in his arm chair beside the vacant one, and when the big full moon arose its beams fell on one lonely figure, and aa empty chair. Ia the meantime the train sped on towards Bill's old home and Marcia. His journey ended at noon two days later, but aa BUI felt ter ribly romantic he waited until the sun was setting, then Marcia must see him first by the lilac bush near her door. As he neared the house he wished he had kept correspond ing all these years; but then, he felt rare Marcia lored him enough to watch and wait for him even though it was 16 yean.

The bride is going to wear a brown suit and hare a reception after the ceremony. If I should wear an evening dress should I wear at hat? Should) the groom send me flow ers? If he doesn't send them, should I buy them? P. D. O, Since the wedding is to be rery informal and the bride is to wear a suit, you should not wear an cra ning dress. Black is not appropri ate for a wedding. I would advise you to wear a suit or an afternoon gown. Doubtless the bride will wear a hat with her suit and so it would be all right for you to do so, too. At a formal wedding, the groom sends the bridesmaids flowers. Since this wedding is to be Infor mal, however. I doubt It the groom will send you any. Do not buy them tor yourself. Dear Mrs. Thompson: Please print some way I can get rid ot blackheads, as I hare a lot of trouble with them on my nose and chin. I also have enlarged pores. How can I reduce them? I THANK TOU. To cure blackheads make an oint night' scrub the face thoroughly with hot water, using a complexion or other soft brush. After wiping, apply the mixture to each of the spots and let it remain on over night Wash off In the morning with hot water. Continue until the spots have disappeared. Then twice a week wash the face with this mixture, removing the liquid at once by rinsing with clear water. For enlarged pores, wipe over each with a little alcohol.
