Three ' Programs
Don't Fail to See Them
We have the two reel the
Eclair, the Faith Healer which
is a story of tremendous power.
J. W. Johnston is "Helmer" the
man who doesn't eare; Guy
Heblund is "Robert", the man
that dqesn't believe in God; and
Miss Barbara Tennant fs "Louise
the girl who believes and cares".
With a powerfull thenie, nrtist
icnlly handled in the weaving of
-the plot, jEqJair has Bcoi'ed heav
ily in this story of love and faith.
The action of the plot is unusally
clear out and forceful and the
development Of the situations
being in such capable bands, the
result has been frn 'artistic
triumph and a tremendous
sermon. Robert and Louise are
married. On their honeymoon
Louise learns, on finding a Bible
in their room tht Robert does
not beliove. A couple of years
after their marriage, they are
reduced to poyorty, and Robert
is obliged to go as a laborer in
order to support his wife and
child. Holmar treats his wife so
meanly that she decides to leave
him and is writing a letter to a
fiiend when her husband returns
unexpectly. He reads the
letter and learns that
his wife will shoot hereself if tho
friend does not come and take her
away, he offers her the revolver
with which to carry out her
threat. But her norvo fails her
and the pistol drops to the table.
Saying that his life is worth loss
than hers, Helman leaves the
house intent on suicide. He is
about to jump in to the river
when he decides upon a better
way to drop out of her life.
Leaving his coat and hat on the
bank, lie enlists in tho army.
Believing that her husband is
dead, the wife welcomes tho
attentions of the friend, and one
day, when she is . riding in an
automobile with the friend, the
husband, who is walking along
the road sees her and exclaims
that ho wished he were blind so
that he may never see her again.
Several weeks later in a battle
his wish is gratified, fcr a shell
burst over his head and blindB
him. This terrible visitation of
the wrath of God makes of
Helmar a new man, and he opens
a. mission for curing tho sick and
the weak. To this mission comes
Louise, who was on her way to
, the drug store for abottle of
medicine for the sick daughter,
Clara. She stands unobserved
until the gathering dispores then
she approaches x and when the
faith healer turns towards her,
she recognizes in Helmar an old
friend. She makes herself known
and leads him to where the sick
child lies. Helmar nrays fervent
ly and soon the little one begins
to regain her strengh. Robert
regains a part of his fortune and
Helmar goes to make his home
with them. In tho closing scene
his wife and sight are both re
stored to him
He ruined his family.
