N. A. Blackwelder, local farmer who
disappeared here ten days ago, has
been located in St. Paul, Minn., and
funds have been forwarded for his re
turn home. He is expected to return
some time this week.
Relatives here were first advised of
Mr. Black welder's whereabouts in a
telegram from a Variolic organisation
to which he went for aid soon after
arriving in St. Paul. The organiza
tion advised relatives that Mr. Black
welder would be cared for until ready
, to return to his home here.
Upon receipt of the telegram rela

welder funds for his excuses home.
Just how Mr. Blackwelder reached
St. Paul and why he went to that
city is not known as no details of
his trip have been received. He was
last seen here Saturday a week ago.
when he got into a ear bearing a Ten

at the time stated that he had only
a small amount of money with him.

upon motorists to carry him from

PERSON PULLS NEW
ONE TO GET MONEY
Passes One Dollar Bill With Ten Dol
lar Comer.—Failed to Work Here.
When cheeking on the day’s sales
at Cline's Pharmacy Monday night,
it was found that a clever attempt
to make money at the expense of the
store Itad been made. A one dollar
bill was passed for a ten dollar bill.
During the course of the day. some I
person in payment for a purchase
banded over a one dollar bill. It was
folded in such away that only one
corner showed and on this corner was
pasted a piece torn from a ten dol
lar bill. It seemed to be the idea
that the clerk would fail to open it
and give change for the large amount.
That the ruse did not work was
shown by the fact that the cash reg
ister checked up all right.

“HIS MAJESTY, THE
“AMERICAN,” SCORES BIG

Fairbanks Has Crowd With Him

By the Press Agent.
For those who say that there is
nothing new under the sun, a trip to
the Concord Theatre, where Douglas
Fairbanks’ new picture. “His Ma
jesty. the American,” opened yester
day, will be a tonic.
We had thought that Mr. Fair
banks had doue about everything that
mortals can do—and stay whole. Hut
we w;ere wrong. And if iris future
screen offerings can furnish as much
real entertainment as was given to
the crowds that attended the opening
lierformances yesterday at tlte Con
cord Theatre wc hope to continue to
The picture, in the first place, tells
a genuine story, which we are not
going to spoil your pleasure by repeat
ing here. Whether the story is prob
able or not doesn’t matter. It is
entertaining in a high degree, and Fiat
is what we seek in a theatre. If
we want serious, heavy, problem
dramas we don’t expect Fairbanks to
’furnish them to us. “His Majesty,
the American,” is made to amuse, and
that it does from start to finish. It
is bright, snappy and clean—a pic
ture that will delight boys and girls
from five to eighty-five.
So much for the story. But after
all, don’t the majority of us go mainly
to see Fairbanks in whatever lie hap
pens to be playing in? And isn’t the
big question—just Doug.
The answer is—yes. Doug !
He is in the picture, right in the
middle of it, from beginning to end,
and the things he does and the way
he does them leave you suspended
midway between nervous prostration
and love for his downright daring and
