"Look Well to the Outlet of Lile."
The electrician had stepped at the
street corner to renew carbons In
the arc lamps. A small boy had
Slopped to watch him. As the day
was bright and sunny the buy was
astonished to see that the man hud
on rubber boots. “\X hat do you
wear those boots lor?” he usdcd
“Do you think it’s going to rain?”
The workman laughed goud-
naturedly. "No, sonny, I wear
them so as to be safe from electric
shocks wht n I handle these lairps,
bleciricity cun't go through rubber
Very well, and one of the funny
things about electricity is that it
cjn’t get inio a person unless it
can get out again."
Is it not true of other things in
life also? Take love. It can't get
into a human heart unless it can
get out again. It must either Hnd
an outlet in service or die. Yet
many persons forget that truth.
Young married people sometimes
let themselves become indifferent
to each othtr’s needs and problems.
Bach feels that the burden of do
mestic care rests wholly on his or
her shoulders. Instead of helping
each other they grow cold and
critical. Little by little the beauti
ful flower of love that at first filled
the home with fragrance droops
and dies. Love cannot live with
Forgiveness too can never get
into a man unless it can get out
again. Have you ever tried to ask
God’s forgiveness while you were
secretly angry with one who had
done you either a real or a fancied
wrong? The very doora of heaven
seem locked against you. You
cannot really pray, for, like love,
forgiveness cannot bloom in the
sterile soil of a selfish soul.
Whosoever seeks the secret of
human happiness will find it in
these simple words, “Look well to
the outlets of hfe." The clearest
stream in the world will quickly
become a stagnant pool if its wa
ters find no escape. Clog the chan
nels of uselulness with the rubbish
of selfishness, harshness or indo
lence, and the streams of att'ection
will soon become a foul and stag
nant morass that reflects no loveli
ness and enriches no barren place.

"The Birth of a Nation" bringing forward David W. Griffiith’s rare art of musical spectacle, opens an
engagement of two nights, Wednesday and Thursday, October 12th and 1.3th, at the Weldon Opera
House. The first half of the great picture exhibits the salient events of the Civil war, which come to a close
at Appomattox just fifty years ago Lincoln's call for troops, Sherman’s march, the Battle of Petersburg,
Lee’s surrender to Grant and the awful tragedy at Ford’s Theatre live before the spectator of the Griffith
drama. In the second half the South’s “second uprising,” this time against the carpetbag regime, is shown
in a thrilling story of reconstruction days. The romance of the ‘little Confederate colonel” Ben Cameron
with the Northerner Elsie Stoneman, and that of the Unionist Captain Phil Stonrman with Margaret Cam
eron, the South Carolina lassie, maintains two threads of continuous love-interest throughout the story.
The fun and frolic of plantation days, as well as the heartache and pathos of the stricken South are shown.
The. great out-of-doors is Mr. Griffith’s special field. Great battle scenes and the rides of the clan are
staged with the thousands of participants. There are 5,000 scenes in the spectacle and (it is estfmated) no
less than 200,000 interesting historical details. On the musical side Mr. Griffith attempted something pre
viously unheard of in connection with motion pictures. This waa the synchronizing of a complete sym
phonic score with the appearance of the important characters and the enactment of the principal scenes.
This instrumental music is played by a large orchestra, and supplemented by part-singing behind the
scenes. Somehow the old war-time tunes, thus thematically treated, make the “counterfeit presenti
ments," of long ago seem irresistibly real. Among the leading players in what was probably the largest
theatric cast ever assembled may be mentioned Joseph Henabery as President Lincoln, Donald Crisp and
Howard Gaye as Generals Grant and Lee; Mae Marsh as Flora Cameron; Henry B. Walthall,Lillian Gish,
Elmer Clifton, .Miriam Cooper as the quartet of lovers; Ralph Lewis as Congressman Stoneman; Spottis-
woode Aiken and Josephine Crowell as the elder Camerons and George Seigman as Lynch.

THE BIRTH OF A NATION CUMING.
D. W. Griffith’s historical spectacle "The Birth of a Nation” will
come to the Weldon Opera House next Wednesday and Thursday,
October 12th and 13th. The “Birth of a Nation” is rule of the mos*
widely discussed topics in the country. It established an absolutely
new art in the realm of the theatre—the an of pantotnimic screen
with music. It also created a tr>.menctous sensation because of tts vas
ter and more forceful treatment of the same theme as Thomas Dixon’s
"The Clancman.” The consequences of the Civil War in Southern
reconstruction are fully dealt with, and the nation reborn is apotheo
sized. Mr. Griffith, pioneer among directors, managed the stupendous
achievement without the aid of dialogue or speech, for motion pictures,
accompanying music and effects tell the coherent, logical and moving
The rose though crushed bears fragrance still.
Though you may tread it as you will.
Around its petals, dead at last,
The sweet perfume of all that’s past
Sends forth its incense to the sky
And softly asks the reason why.
The heart of fondest hope bereft
Still sadly beats despite itself.
From day to day it struggles on.
While the past joys forever gone
From day to day add to distress,
And for that heart there is no rest.
The mind benumb’d by sorrow’s load
Yet travels its dark, wretched road.
As it recounts each pleasure lost.
Seeing it dead and crushed and tossed
Beneath the feet of cold mankind;
That mind to st>lace now is blind.
