Navy Force Falls Out Over Spelling of a Simple Word "and It Is hereby understood that the officer of this corporation signing thla eontrsi-t hss power to fulfil" Right there Army Recruiting Sergeant .Hansen stopped Pecking the key of hla I typewriter. "Fulfil?" should it have two "li s" at it. . . me fnu or only one? it dldn t look right with one. It looked Sort of chopped off and Ineomrlete. The sergeant is a man of thoroughness. He reached for an abridged elditlon of the Standard dictionary and looked up the word. One "I" was all It allowed at the end. The sergvant stepped Into the next room where Corporal Blackett wa studying hla Bunday school lesson, or reading something else. "How many 'lla' In 'fulfill,' niarkett?" hevasked. "Three," aald Blackett. "one In the mid dle and two on the end." "'ihaf what I thought, but the dic tionary says only one on the end," aald Mr. Hansen. So they looked In Blaokett'a dictionary, which is the only original and genuine, and hear the name of Webster. It authorized two "ll's" at the end and the sergeant exclaimed triumphantly) "That's the way I thought waa right." Enter Private RUcy, to whom waa pro pounded the problem. "Four 'lla' In that word." aald Mr. Riley. 'Two In the middle and two at the back end. Bure, I ought to know. Didn't mo father aell spelling books In his store?" James R. Lysaght came In from his station In front of the building, where he gives first Information to would-be recruits. "Fulfill?" said Mr. Lyaaght, with fine acorn. "Why, It'a alay. I'm surprised none of you can spell a simple little polysyl lable the likes of that F-double o-l-p-h- l-double-l. It'a very simple and easy. Bet ter write It down before you forget It, now," After the ambulanoe had removed what waa left of Mr. Lyaaght, Sergeant Han- Ben retired again to hla typewriter and carefully gave the 'T key another punch. "It's the way I thought It waa spelled In the flrat place."

At the L.inireia. The first and only filmation of "Three WeekB." KMnor Olyn'a epoch-making love drama, will be presented at the Brandels theater for eight daya and four times beginning with matineea this after noon. The cast comprising the best of America's artists with the director who ' knew what he waa doing and who spared neither expense nor pains to muke this enthralling love atory of a queen without ! a country and tho king without a throne, a ploture that will sweep the country aa no film ever done before. Tho regal ! character of thn lntnrlnr aetttns-a marl ' neoeesary by the nature of tho story and the surroundings In which tho- action takes place, and the number of people taking part has brought the estimated oost of the production up to ir3,on0. Those who have read the novel will notloe that the picture follows It almost without variation, except perhaps In one or two places where certain periods of time have been akipped over lightly. The principals of the cast are exact duplloates of their famed piolotype In the book. Somewhat questionable blta of dialogue which were prominent In the book have been left to the Imagination. The story lends itself to acreen adaption remark ably well. The altuationa have been well put together and never for a moment does the picture loae the Inspired Interest of the spectator that It gained when the story first appeared on the screen. "Three Weeks" will be given at the Brandela theater four times dally all this week and Bunday of next week, excepting Thurs day evening, June 10, when Rabbi Wise will apeak at the Brandela theater. A variety of novelty acts are offered on the bill at the Empress for the first half of the week. Leon sisters anl com pany head the bill with a tight who and an iron Jaw novelty.

The bill Is completed by Ed and Minnie Foster, two grief destroyers, In a song and talkfest on the piano. The picture I togram Includes a cartoon comedy, "Dud Visits the Zoo," and the Hearst Sellg news pictorial. "Darkness Before Dawn," a three-reel photoplay, Is the feature production.

Trained hore acts, riding and racing will excite thrills, and a host of foreign clowns will keep the spectators In an uproar of laughter throughout the performances. Hugo Brothers are determined to win for their shows the same reputation In America that they bear In Australia and on the continent of Europe. They realise ths handicaps of ths practically unknown showmen, but are quite confident of quickly establishing with Otnanans, and to that end they have worked and equipped their organisation with tha best material, talent and exhibition animals available. Of special Interest to children will be the privilege of riding the ponies free.
