Marion Davies, one of the most
popular of the little squad of stage
beauty celebrities around whom sum
mer shows, revues, etc, are built, is
the first to yield to the temptation of
the films. Pronounced by such artists
as Harrison Fisher the most perfect
type of blond beauty in America.
Miss Davies first attracted attention
in Ziegfeld's "Follies." Later she
played the title role in "The Country
Girl" and "Miss 1917," and was the
featured artist of Hitchcock & Goetz'
"Words and Music." She will make
a film interpretation of Katherine
Haviland Taylor's popular novel,
"Cecilia oi the Pink Roses."

15TH AND FARNAM STS.
By WILLIAM P. KIRK.
For a tree that was green in the long ago.
And a hundred lights that shone,
I am longing tonight as the blaze sinks low
And darkness broods on her throne,
For one soft croon of an old, old tune
My queen-mother sang to me;
I would give the things that the fat world brings
In the toy-bag of destiny.
I would give the wiles and the witching smiles
That gladdened my quickening heart,
In the wine-blurred days when I trod the ways,
That meet and tangle and part.
I would give my place in the weary race,
To one who stumbles and slips;
For the smile that lies In a mother's eyes,
And the kiss of a mother's lips.
Oh, the loys are vain in the palace of gain.
And the Jester death makes sport;
Though the road 1b long till we pass the throng,
The rest of the way is short.
And so as I dream by the gate's last gleam,
And gaze at the ashes gray;
I would trade the things that the fat world brings,
For the trinkets of yesterday.
THE TOLL OF THE ROAD. Br Marlon
H11L D. Appleton Co. $1.50.
A clever, truthful picture of stage
life, showing how a girl's character is
developed and changed by the con
tacts and necessities of the road.
When the story opens Gert Hall is a
pretty, conventional, small-town type,
engaged to marry a worthy, dull
young man. A theatrical company
comes to town and the manager of
fers Gert a part in his new play. She
accepts, goes to New , York and
then starts out on the road. How
the new life, in startling contrast to
the old, affects her, until at last at the
height of her success she has to
choose between wifehood and moth
erhood and the alluring life of the
road, and how she chooses all these
make up the story. The author
shows existence on the boards as it
really is; very good in some respects,
bad in many others, but always dif
ferent from every other kind of life.
NOCTURNE. By Frank Swlnnerton. George
H. Doran Company. 11.40.
The events of the story take place
in one night a night which reveals
the whole life and characters of two
sisters of the lower middle class in
London and their paralytic "pa." The
sisters are sharply contrasted in tem
perament, and this difference is
brought into high relief by the con
trasted quality of the love which
comes to each of them on the night of
FIRST THE BLADE. By Clemenca Dane.
The Macmlllan Company. U.60.
This may be described as the story
of two young people in love, and of
their development under the influence
of their emotions. "A Comedy of
Growth," the author terms it, and this
title is fully realized. It is "comedy"
in the true Meredithian sense. There
is genuine suspense in watching the
actual growth of two persons who
are extraordinarily alive.
THE SHERIFF'S SON. By William Mao
leod Ralne. Houghton Mifflin Company.
The scene of this story is laid in
that wild western background which
Mr. Raine knows so intimately. His
hero, the sheriff's son, is born with
an inheritance of physical fear his
father having been murdered just be
fore his birth. After an education in
the east, he returns to his old home
in the west, and before long arouses
the hostility of the same gang which,
twenty-odd years before, had killed
his father. His fight to conquer both
his 'ear and his enemies and to win
the love of the charming heroine
makes one of the best stories Mr.
Raine has ever written.
RANSOM. By Arthur Somen Roche. George
H. Doran Company. $1.35.
This is a mystery story of varied
scene and continuous action. Young
Waring sets out to solve the mys
tery of his vanished fortune, and be
comes involved in a gigantic plot
to capture the wealth of the world,
precipitate a panic and overthrow the
entire system of currency. The
leader is an insane fanatic, with un
scrupulous criminals for his confed
erates. Waring impersonates a mem
ber of the band. A Wall street mag
nate an old man, courageous, self
made, whose humor enlivens the piece
is abducted. There are strange re
treats, such as a hospital which is
really a dive for the criminals; plots
and counterplots; a final revelation
which imposes new surprises at the
very end and- a happy ending be-,

courage and brains have been his
FORE. By Charlea E. Van Loan. Georfe X.
A collection of short stone about
the game of golf by a writer who has
made altogether his own the field of
sport in fiction. While the tales are
broadly humorous they are pointed
with the subtilities of the game and
are saturated with that sense of the
dignity of golf and the personal honor
which it involves, which is the pride
in his sport of every worthy golfer.'
WHERE THE SOULS OF MEN ARB CALL
ING. By Credo Harrla. Brltton Fubllehlnf
A love story out of the war zone
founded on fact more strange, more
owerful than fiction. The author,
ieutenant Credo Harris, stationed in
France with the International Red
Cross, is a Kentuckian. His. story
starts with the entrance of America
into the war and ends on the firing
line of France.

A collection of patriotic poems.
To Balance the
Wheat Flour Order
We have been told of the .unin
formed woman who accumulated sixtj
pounds of barley flour because sht
did not know what else to buy to bal
ance her order of wheat flour.
The food administration recognizes
the following as wheat substitutes:
Cornmeal, edible corn starch, corn
flour, corn grits, hominy, barley flour,
rice, rice flour, oatmeal, rolled oats,,
buckwheat flour, potato flour, sweet
potato flour, soya bean flour and fe
terita flour. This makes a long list
from which a capable cook can' fashion
many kinds of appetizing dishes.
Do not buy them to save them; they
are to be used, not accumulated on"
cupboard shelves. It is not the inten-v
tion of the food administration to pen
alize the consumer's pocketbook by
asking him to buy something he can
not use. Neither is it patriotism to
stock up the pantry with these substi
tutes because the cook is too ignorant
or lazy to make proper use of them.'
Patriotism in the kitchen consists of
conserving the wheat flour needed by
the armies abroad by using the substi
tutes in healthful and appetizing
All the large milling concerns have,
worked out new recipes by means of
which inexperienced cooks can utilize
these different cereals.
