The year'f' dlsatitera were of vary ing typea, including a«Teral which pre viously had ittver been thought as failing within that clasatflca- tlon. The Ued Cross furnished relief In sevi-nteen Area of magnitude, five floods, seven tornadoes or cjr- cionea, one devaatatlag storm, three explosions, including the one In Wall street; one bulldlBf accident, two typiiotd epidemtca, the most serious be ing that at Salem, Ohio, which at* fected 0 per cent of the population; one aroallpox epidemic. In the republic of Haiti; one train wreck, the race riot at Tulsa, Okta,; the famine lo China, emergency relief In famine among the Indiana of Alaska, the grasshopper plague In North Dakota and an earth quake In Italy. Puetiie Moet teHoue By far the moat atvere of the dis asters In the United States during the period covered by the Bed Cross port was the Pueblo flood early In June, 1921. ’Hie rehabilitation prob lem confronting the Red Cross In Pueblo 'was one of the most dlflenlt in recent yeura. Whee tbe first mws of the horror was flaahed throughout the country, the American Red Cross Kational Heudquarters responded with € grinr of' $10A,000 for relief work. Oovemor Shoup of Colorado, appre* elating the long and avccessful eiperl- ence of die Red Creae le organlaliig disaster relief work, placed the en- t^e responslblUty for the administra tion of relief In Its hands. In response to appeals from Preat* <f»nt Harding, Oovomor Shoup and other governors of western states and through local chapters of the Red Cross and other commiinlty organlxa- Monp. publlc-splrlted dtlsens brought the total contributed for Puel>lo's re habilitation te more tlian |82fi,000. The terrli)le havoc wrought by the flood waters is a matter of record. More than 2,300 liomeK were affected and 7,801 ptTMoits were left hometees. Estimates of $000,000 hr an absolute minlmuu) for rehabilitation were made by Ued CroHs offlclals In ctiarge of tk* relief work. Faet Work In Wall Itreet The Wall street explosion was notn* ble in that relief workers of the Red Cross were <m the scene twenty min utes after the disaster occurred. Ttie race riot at Tulsa also wbv unique In dlitiialer rellt^f atiuals lu that outside of a small emergency relief fund con tributed by the Red CroHS, the only relief measures outside tlie city con sisted of the servl(‘e of social work ers, nnrses and a traltied executive wlione (^Ject was t» assist local for4T« In directing their own efforts. In decided contrast with the pre vious year, only one torrrudo aHsumed the proportions of a major disaster. This occurred on April 10. In the bor der sections of TexHfl und Arkiiniius with the city of Texarkuna iis the center. The slgnlfleant feature of this dltastor relief work was ttie fH<-t that It covered su much rursi territory as te make nec'essary •’ large number uf relief workers.

In 828 Chapters of the Am<rt- can Red Cross there h«ve been formed special committees to survey the re* •ources of their reepectlve communi ties and to be prepared In case of' disaster. In others of the S.402 active Chapten, a network of communication has been formed through which Instan* t^neous relief may be dispatched to any part of the United States. That Its work In this field may be continued with ever greater effective ness, the American Red Cross Is ap pealing for wldeapread renewal of membership during Its Annual Roll Call, to be conducted this year from November 11 to 24.

Griffiith’s rare an of musical spectacle, opens an engagement of two nights, Wednesday and Thursday, October 12th and I3th, at the Weldon Opera House. The first half of the great piciure exhibits the salient evenis of ihe X^ivil war,which come to a close at Appomaiiox just fifty years ago Lincoln’s call for troops, Sherman’s march, the Batile of Petersburg, Lee’s surrender to Grant and the awful tragedy at Ford’s Theaire live before the spectator of the Griffith drama. In the second half the South’s **second uprising,” (his time against the carpetbag regime, is shown in a thrilling story of reconstruction days. The romance of the 'little Confederate colonel” Ben Cameron with ihe Northerner Elsie Sioneman, and that of the Unionist Captain Phil Stonrman with Margaret Cam eron, ihe South Carolina lassie, maintains two threads of continuous love-iriterest 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 batile 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 whai was probably the largest theatric cast ever assembled may be mentioned Joseph Henabery as President Lincoln, Donald Crisp and Howard Gaye as Generals Gram 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 Sioneman; Spotiis- woode Aiken and Josephine Crowell as the elder Camerons and George Seigman as Lynch.

BB DBaBaDDBBBBI THE BIRTH OF A NATION COMING. D. W. Griffiih’s historical speciacle "The Binh of a Nation" will come to the Weldon Opera House next Wednesday and Thursday, October 12th and 13th. The “Birth of a Nation” is one of the mosc widely discussed topics in the country. It established an absolutely new an in the realm of the theatre—the an of pantomimic screen with music. It also created a tremendous sensation because of its 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 lully 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 anil effects tell the coherent, logical and moving story. A Wonderful Cleaning Soap made with ONE large can of Red Seal Lye mixed with 5'/i pounds of grease and water (according to directions) makes ten pounds of wonderful cleaning soap. You can either make hard or soft soap—which ever you need, and you’ll say it’s the great est cleanser you ever saw. For Red Seal Lye is absolutely pure lye of the highest quality. It is free from any adulterations. Red Seal Lye is granulated and packed in cans that are easy and con venient to use. There is nothing like Red Seal Lye for washing greasy pots and pans or cleaning out greasy sinks. You simply sift Red Seal Lye into the pan or sink with a little water to dissolve it. It eats up the grease, combining with it to make soap, and water washes grease, soap and lye away in a jiffy. You’ll Bnd many helpful ways to use Red Sea) Lye—as a water softener-~a disinfectant->-a purifier and cleanser. Always ask your storekeeper for, and be sure \to get, the old reliable Red Seal Granulated Lye. P. C. TOMSON & CO., Philadelphia, Penns.
