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 out service. 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. OHRAT IMPROVEMENT NOTED “Did you know," asked the proud resident of Terrell, Texas, “that this is a wonderful health re sort?” “VShy, no," replied the traveler. ‘‘1 hadn’t heard about it." “Fact. When 1 came to this city I couldn’t walk and had lo be car ried from my bed. ” “Remarkable! Remarkable! May I ask how long you have been here?” ’Oh,” said the citizen, prepar ing to home, 'I was born here.' HHAUD. When a Mobile doctor came to visit the Robinson family by whom he had been summoned he found Mrs. Robinson in bed, her dusky luce decorated with bandages. Mr. Robinson was sitting in stolid mis ery by the bedside. "Cheer up, Sam,” said the M.D. “She’ll pull tlirough all right.” “Don’ yo’ go tryin’ to cheer me up,” answered Mr. Robinson dark ly, “fo’ it’s onpossible, doctor. Heah Ah has her insured against accidtHits of all kinds only fo' days ago and paid down mah five dol lars, an’ befo' de week is out she falls downstairs wid a bucket of coal and now look at her, all busted from end to end!” NO CHANCE. “Marry you?" exclaimed the temperamental eirl. “Why, 1 wouldn't marry you if you had a million dollars." 0"You're right you wouldn’t," replied the candid man. "In that case I would be more discrimina ting." A MAN OF HONOR. Roomer: “I regret that 1 cannot pay you.my rent this week." "llandlady: “But you told me the same thing last week." Roomer: “Well, 1 kept my word, didn't I?" It is fair to say that most jazz musicians look as if they were do ing it for money? Children Ory FOR FLETCHER'S CASTORIA "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. i NOT FOR HER. An old dame at a railway station asked a porter where she could get i her ticket. The man pointed in the direction of the ticket office. | “You can get it there," he said,: “through the pigeon hole.” "Get away with you, idiot," she exclaimed. "How can I get throuh that little hole?" 1 ain't no iH- geon!” CASTORIA For Infants and Children In Use For Over 30 Years Always bears the Signatute i >ears = o. 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 story. lost LmE. 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. mt. lUm Ohildrdii Gry FOR FLETCHER’S CASTORIA Ohiidren Ory FOR FLETCHER'S CASTORIA NOT QUITE FINISHED.
