Nancy Carroll and “Personal Maid”
were made for each other—^aflaming-
haired, vivacious, Irish beauty, and
a title that promises some interesting
inside intimacies in wealthy circles,
amusing incidents in the servant’s
hall, heart-break, ambition, romance.
For “Personal Maid,” which is the
attraction at the Carolina, on Thurs

a special matinee on Thursday at
3:00 p. m., is a great Cinderella story
with a bigger kick in it than any
Cinderella story you have ever read.
It’s a modern story, strictly fresh

The attractions at the Dixie Thea
tre for the coming week offer variety
that will be pleasing to all. The at
traction for Saturday, “East Of Bor

Rose Hobart and George Renevault,
is a mystery of the Orient with a jun
gle background, studded with fero
cious animals that will keep you
gasping with suspense. The story is
of a white woman who follows her
doctor husband into the wilds to find
that he has gone native and is serving
as court physician to the prince of the
island. The story that follows offers
The attraction scheduled for a two-
day run beginning Monday is “Si

“School Days, school days! Oh! the
golden rule days!” Time will turn
back nearly a hundred years, this
Saturday afternoon and night at the
Carolina, where “Huckleberry Finn,”
Mark Twain’s rollicking comedy of
youth, will open its one day (only) run
and young and old and medium aged
live again the “good old days” with
Jackie Coogan as Tom Sawyer,. Jun
ior Durkin as Huck Finn, Jackie
Searl as Sis Sawyer and Mitzi Green
H I as Becky Thatcher, backed up by such
S I adult screen favorites as Eugene Pal-
g I lette, Guy Oliver, Oscar Apfel, Clara
g I Blandick and others. An unusually in
teresting program of short subjects
accompany the feature.
“My Sin,” a thrilling social drama,
is the attraction at the Carolina Thea
tre Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
“My Sin” tells the story of the re
demption of two human derelicts al
most submerged, one through wild
living, the other by the touch of re
morseless circumstance. Yet charac
ter remains—and through the influ
ence of an understanding love their
broken lives are mended. Tallulah
Bankhead and Frederic March, co-
stars of great talent and versatility,
carry the burden of the story, sup
ported by a cast of superb artists of
reputation on the stage.
On Thursday and Friday of next
week, October 1st. and 2nd, with a
matinee Thursday, the most talked of
picture of the year, Theodore Dreis
er’s “An American Tragedy,” featur
ing Sylvia Sidney as Roberta Alden
and Phillips Holmes as Clyde Grif
fiths, will be seen at the Carolina
Theatre. Patrons already know of the
many arguments between the author
and producer, of the several court ac
tions which included an injunction,
etc. Nevertheless an important pic
ture has come to the screen, important
in terms that set it distinctly apart
from most that has been done since
the screen acquired a voice, and the
consideration of Hmport remaining
now are, not between author and pro
ducer, but rather in the intrinsic
character of the picture as a picture.
It does demand a moderate degree of
intelligence and *'ontribution from the
obvious to the degree which has
come to almost completely character
ize motion picture style. It will not
ring, or wring, the dumbbells, but

role and is supported by James Hall,

On Thursday and Friday the offer
ing is “Secrets Of A Secretary,” fea

original by Charles Brackett, tells of
the experience of a wealthy New
York society girl named Helen Blake

young Argentine, and later finds her
self penniless by the death of her
father. Her husband turns out to be a
despicable fortune hunter and de

MUCH TO BE SAID ON BOTH
SIDES OF TOBACCO MARKET
(Continued from Page 1)
have come down into Montgomery in
the past few months, says he has
17 barns, and that some of the sales
here are right good and some not so
good. But he will plant more next
year, for he believes there around El-
lerbe the Stokes folks have found a
good tobacco neighborhood. “The to
bacco we made this year is not so
heavy as the leaf up in Stokes, and
we believe it will find a readier sale.
The most of the folks who came down
from up there in the hills are pleased
with the outlook in Montgomery. I
do not think one family has gone
back dissatisfied. One trouble with
tobacco is that other things which the
farmer has to buy are not coming
down in proportion to the fall in to
bacco prices. But that does not hurt us
so bad as it might, for while I got
downn here too late to sow’^ grain I
raised about 80 bushels of Irish po
tatoes and some garden stuff and
feed, and have a fair lot of stuff to
carry us through. Next year I will
have some wheat and other stufi and
so will the rest of our folks. Most of
them have a fair lot of grain this
year. I will have 10 acres of wheat
“Selling better here than down our
way,” said J. M. Powers, of St. Pauls.
“Better grades are selling better here,
and I haven’t seen the poor grades
sell good any place. This seems as
satisfactory as any market I have
visited this fall, and I am going to
sell some of my crop in Aberdeen.”
A cheerful sport is J. W. Collins,
of Union county. He and his father
and brother are trying tobacco for the
first time down that way, and the
results are not wholly gratifying.
They have rather fertile soil, and they
added fertilizer and made a good
crop. The leaf grew heavy. Then they
suckered the plants and about the
time they did it rains came freely
and stimulated a second growth of
leaf, and on that soil with the fer
tilizer and rain the development curl
ed its hair. They have about 10,100
pounds, pretty long leaf, with 1,500
po’inds on the floor Tuesday, but the
pr’ e is not what it would have been
if the late rains had allowed a light
er type of leaf. Mr. Collins says he is
not sure what they will do next year,
but that if they plant tobacco again

fertilizer, nor so much suckering if it
