Letcher & Son JEWELERS PER52N4L LOCAL AT THE MOVIES John Barryniore Coming to Joy Raffles, the play by Eugene Pres- by, has been transformed into a seven reel motion picture, with John Barrymore in the role of Raffles. It Isn't at all necessary to tell even a wee bit of this story from the famous novel of E. W. Hornung, be-' cause there probably isn't a person living who hasn't read It. But to see on the screen the thrilling ad ventures of the society thief who stole for the sheer love of stealing, and" for the excitement of the chase, an the jnere joy of outwitting the police and amateur detectives who sought to capture him Is a treat which you can't afford to miss. And John Barrymore Is an ideal "Raf fles." His work Is of the finest, and arthough you can't approve of his occupation, you certainly will ap prove of his methods. Besides the Melrose Jewels were well worth the taking. The story is packed full of sus pense, action ' and good acting and has been excellently directed. The reinrn or John Barrymore to the screen is in Itself a treat, and If for no other reason than this. Raffles should be warmly received.

Paris, Feb. 5. After the tragic account of the death of the former Czar of Russia and his family at the hand of the Bolshevik), comes the description of General Kornl- Ioff's vain attempts to restore order in Russia, his fight against the Bol shevikl and the Germans and his death. After his escape from Petrograd when the Bolshevik! took over the power of the government. General Korniloff left for South Russia, where with Generals Alexloff, Mark off and Denikine, he organised an army to tight Bolshevik Germanism. Many times during the sanguinary encounters between his troops and those of the 'BolahevikI, General Korniloff shouldered a rifle himself and fought as a simple soldier. He was killed while directing an attack near Eksterinobar by a bursting grenade thrown by a Bolshevik In the hut where the famous general was working. His soldiers before retiring, de cided to bury the body temporarily with the-Intention of coming back later and giving their leader a gran diose funeral. In the meantime the BoUhevikl heard of General Kornl- loff's death. They sent a special mis sion to find the body. Having dis covered It, the Bolshevik! In their mad joy at having got rid of one of their bitterest opponents, fought for the body, which was finally hung on a tree. It did not remain there long, however, for a furious mob of anar chists tore It down, cut it Into pieces, and for more than a quarter of an hour played football with the general's head In the presence of the great leader's friends, who had to stand by, vainly trying to persu ade the Bolshevists to have more re spect for the dead body. count of a lack of water to operate.

"Nearly one-third of a total of 83 grade crossing accidents on the Southern Pacific for the last quarter of" the year 1918 involving automobiles and auto trucks were caused by running or skidding Into trains Instead of being struck by trains," says R. J. Clancy, assistant general manager. "The character of these accidents was as follows: Stalled on track, 9; ran on track in front of train, 39; ran into side of engine or train, 22; skidded Into side of train, 5; ran In to crossing gates, 6; ran Into cross ing flagman, 1; ran Into cattle guard lj ran around switchman, 1, "The fact that five crossing gates and one crossing flagman, while protecting vehicles and pedestrians from passing trains, were struck by automobiles would seem to Indicate a degree of Indifference to danger on the part of some automobile drivers above the ordinary," AT AGE OF 77 YEARS Mrs. (Catherine Hampshire died In this city at the home of her son.

REHKOPF JOB PRINTING NEAHY DONE AT THE COURIER OFFICE OREGON TO COMBAT L Blind Potters. The new "lighthouse" ut Sayres, where the famous potteries of the French government are situated, is ex pected to prove one of the most useful methods of re-educating the blinded soldiers. Making pottery Is one of the occupations In which the blind may become adept, and, although the Sevres lighthouse has been in existence only a short while, eight blinded men have already been graduated from the mod eling class Into the government shops. The French government has appor tioned some land to the committee on the grounds of the Sevres potteries, on which It Is about to build trslntng school for blind potters, who will be graduated from there to other fac tories. ' The following telegram to the Ore gon Social Hygiene society of Port land, from Surgeon-General Rupert Blue, of Washington, D. C, ' shows that Oregon Is 'one of the cleanest states In the union, from venereal diseases: "A tabulation of 1,000,000 reports first received from camp surgeons throughout the country shows that Oregon leads the country with a rate of .59 of 1 per cent to have a venereal disease on arriving In camp. It Is hoped that Oregon can continue vigorous measures In combatting venereat diseases during the perfnd of demobilization and thereafter." The government is continuing the fight against these diseases and the campaign of education will be car. rled on among the women of the country the same as It was among the soldiers during the period of the war. Next week Dr. Reld, a woman physician of many years experience, will speak to the women of Grants Pass on the subject at the court-' house. Joy ; Theater fiAMT TI.MK TODAY L 'kf.
