He was our little rosebud
So pure, so sweet and gay.
But the death angel came unheralded
And took our darling away.
We will miss his little footsteps
As they pattered on the walk,
Also his merry prattle' , -As
he had just begun to talk. ' '
His death was so unexpected
And from him tie hard to part, ,
But God has promised in His word
To comfort the troubled heart.
We cannot see in the future
As only God can see
What the future will bring to us
For He knows what is to be.
We all loved him dearly
But God did love him . more.
So Re took our little Irosebud
Over on the other shore.
He is over there with Jesus
Waiting for Us to come
And share with' him the comfort :
There in that beautiful home. '

Monday and Tuesday at State Theatre;
The stirring history of the discov
ery of oil and the development of the
oil industry in America serves as a
background for the strange romance
of Irene Dunne end Randolph Scott in
"High, Wide and Handsome."
The love between Scott, a hard
bitten farmer of indomitable will, and
Miss Dunne, a gay, light-hearted
carnival singer, which Is accented and
abetted by the haunting music of
Jerome Kern, makes one of the most
absorbing stories the screen has seen.
Scott meets Miss Dunne when she
comes to Titusville - with her show,
and they fall in' love without know
ing it, during her stay in town. The
knowledge that they are in love does
not come to them until they attend
a picturesque barn dance together,
at which Charles Bickford, who plays
a villainous teamster, kisses Miss
Dunne and starts a fight with Scott.
Scott persaudes Miss Dunne not to
leave town with her show, and they
are married in a colorful ceremony at
Scott's Pennsylvania farm home. Just
after their marriage, while they are
on a hill where they plan to build
their new home, oil gushes from
Scott's oil derrick, the first one in the
country. At once the city is plunged
into turmoil, with farmers all over
the section drilling on their property
for oil. .?
Miss Dunne watches in bewilder
ment while her husband becomes
more and more oblivious of her,
more absorbed in the growth of the
new industry he has discovered.' Soon

his activities make him the leader of
the oil section. All the farmers who
have suddenly become oil producers
look to him for leadership, and event
ually he finds it almost impossible to
spend any time at home. He , is in
articulate, Incapable' of making his
wife understand his duty to -his
friends, or his interest in the oil that
can be affored by rich and poof alike!'
When the railroads begin boosting
freight rates in order to freeze out
the farmers and control the oil busi
ness themselves, Scott is so absorbed
in his problems that he apparently
forgets the existence of Miss Dunne,
who is terribly hurt by his apparent
indifference. He finally, decides to
beat the railroad's prices by building
a pipe line clear to the refineries, and
plunges into the new task with all his
It is then that Miss Dunne realizes
that the love to which she has dedi
cated her life is a cold thing. Her
husband refuses to share his interests
with her, she feefs useless to him, and
in a supreme effort to, recapture his
love and gayety she runs off to sing
with' a carnival once more.
But, when danger threatens Scott,
she realizes that her love for her
husband is more important than any
thing else life can give her and she
returns to fight for him and with
him. .. -
Miss Dunne and Randolph Scott are
supported by a fine cast; including
Raymond Walburn, William Frawley,
Elizabeth Patterson: and Charles
