Governor McKelvie spoke briefly
on the problems which confront the
people of the country today, the
greatest among then; being the high
rest of living. He explained that
the only way in which a remedy
could be found, was through the
people themselves, and said that
while the government and states
could make, laws, it was up to the
people themselves to inforce them.
"There is to much wasteful buying
and lack of thrift among the peo
ple of the United States," he said.

DRIVE AWAY HEADACH
Rub Musterole on Forehead
. and Temple3
A headache remedy without the dan
gers of "headache medicine." Relieves
headache and that miserable feeling
from colds or congestion. And it acts at
once! Musterole is a dean, white oint
ment; made with oil of mustard. Better
than a mustard plaster and does not
blister. Used only externally, and in v
no way can it affect stomach and heart;
as some internal medicines do. 1
Excellent for sore throat; bronchitis,
croup, stiff, neck, asthma, neuralgia,
congestion, pleurisy, rheumatism, lum
bago, all pains and aches of the back
or joints, sprains, sore muscles, bruises,
chilblains, frosted feet, colds of the
chest (it often prevents pneumonia).

PHOTO -PliY OFFERING J FOR TODAY
ONE of the really strong dramatic
plays of the wartime period
that has not yet been seen in
Omaha, although it would have been
plaved here last season had not' the
flu epidemic intervened, is "The
Copperhead," with Lionel Barry
more in the leading role. "This play j
has been reproduced for the moving
picture theaters, and was yesterday
given a private showing at the
Strand, where it will be exhibited
next week. It tells the story of 'a
man who was called on by President
Lincoln to do a duty that not only
prevented his shouldering a musket,
but separated him from his wife, his
family,, his friends, landed him in
prison, and sent him to face life
marked as a traitor, a murderer and
a skulker. His son", slain in battle,
cursed his father with his dying
breath; his wife's last words to him
were "You're untlean!" Finally a
day comes when he can unseal hi
lips ajid tell his secret, and he does
so only to secure the happiness of
his granddaughter and the boy she
loves. Mr. Barrymore plays the
role with excellent judgment and re
pression, emphasizing the tension at
the proper moment in a way not
common among movie actors, and
impresses the beholder always with
the sense of the grim struggle the
strong man has to make as one by
one those he loves and those whose
friendship he values turn away from
him. The many parts in the drama
are well played, and some vivid pic
tures of wartimes hack ,of the lines
Muse Tom Mix's new photoplay,
"The Speed Maniac," is playing for
the last time today at the Muse the

thrills to the foot as Mix ever put
into one of his inimitable pictures.
, Moon There will be only one
more opportunity to see William
Farnum, the William Fox star, in
his latest production, "The Last of
the Duanes," at the Moon theatre
which will have its final showing to
day. Manager Ballentyne announces

Rialto In these days of widely
heralded all-star motion picture
casts that so often fail to materialize
on the screen, it is a relief to find a
picture like "Evcrywoman," show
ing at the Rialto theater this week,
and presenting an array of film fa
vorites that has seldom been dupli
cated in one picture before. Violet
Heming, the charming stage and
screen player, has the leading role
in this sumptuously produced ver
sion of Walter Browne's famous
morality play. Theodore Roberts is
Wealth, Wanda Hawley is Beauty
and Monte Blue is Love. Bebe Dan
iels was recruited from the ranks of
comedy to play the role of Vice.
Others in the company are Margaret
Loomis, Mildred Reardon, Raymond
Hatton, Noah Beery, Irving Cum
mings, Charles Ogle and Tully Mar
shall. The picture was directed by
George H. Melford and is a Para-mount-Artcraft
Strand After playmg a variety of
roles ranging from a member of the
Salvation army to actor, Fatty Ar
buckle again comes forward, this
time in the role of a fireman, in his
latest comedy, "The Garage," which
will be shown for the last times at
the Strand theater today. In this
picture, one of the funniest yet pro
duced, Fatty and Buster are em
ployed in a garage, which inciden

Empress "The"- Right to Lie,"
starring Dolores Cassinelli, will be
the photoplay attraction at the Em-
DTHEKN AND MARLOWE,at
Bovd's tonight, the play,
"Twelfth Night" and the hour,
8 o'clock, is the big thing on the
calendar. This rare and altogether
remarkable- combination of stars
comes with a specially selected com
pany, with some new ideas in stage
settings and with the charm oi their
culture and experience for four per
formances, of- which this evening's
is to be the first. Playgoers are
earnestly requested to notice that
the curtain will rise at 8 o'clock
sharp at night and at 2 o'clock sharp
at the Saturday "matinee during the
engagement - of E. H. Sothern and
Julia Marlowe at Boyd's tonight.
As the first scenes in "Twelfth
Night." "Hamlet" and "The Tarn-1
ing of the Shrew" are important to
the action of the dramas, playgoers
are urged to be seated before the
rise of the curtain.
DeWolf Hopper will open an en
gagement of three davs at the
Brandeis theater tonight in "The
Better 'Ole," by Capt. Bruce Bairns
father, the English comic cartoonist,
and Capt. Arthur Eliot. The authors
call their play, which is really a
musical comedy, "A fragment from
France in two explosions, seven
splinters and a short gas Attack."
However, while "The Better 'Ole"
treats of the recent war, it makes
you forget its horrors in a barrage
of laughter. Every explosion in
"The Better 'Ole" rocks the theater
with laughter; every splinter of the
seven is a shaft of fun, and the
gas attack is made with laughing
gas. This wartime musical comedy
is based on Captain Bairnsfather's
famous book, "Fragments of
France." In it appear the famous
trio, "Old Bill, "Bert" and "Alf."
Three feminine stars share head
line honors this week at the Or
pheum. One is Mile. Nitta-Jo, most
popular of French character singers,

rouse gales of merriment. Eva.i
Shirley's "song? of the moment"
range from ragtime to grand opera.
She is assisted by a jazz band and
by Al Roth, the jazz dancer.
Fanchon and Marco are announced
for appearance at the Brandeis for
next week, starting Sunday, in a new
edition of their revue, "Let's Go."
Fanchon and Marco are supported
by a notable array of players.
Budd (himself) of Ham and Budd
motion pictures, assisted by the
Buddie Girls, a bevy of attractive
and taiented young ladies comes to
the Empress theater in a light musi
cal comedy made up of singing,
dancing and much comedy. A black
face singing? and talking specialty
is to be offered by Browing and
Davis. Halley and Howard, two
graduates from musical comedy, will
present their singing oddity, "Fare
Thee Well." A musical offering is
that by Pierce and GofF, young wom
en who play the drum, xylophone,
piano and cornet.
The Butterfly ballet as presented
by "Butterflies of Broadway" at the
Gayety this week is an eye delight
not easily forgotten. The cultured
soprano voice of Helen Tarr is
another enjoyable adjunct to the
entertainment. Ladies' matinee at

campaign is being carried on for the sale of bond certificates
of the Republic of Ireland. - '.
News already given out in the large centers shows that the

' 'believers in the American "doctrine of self-determination and
government by the consent of the governed are showing their
substantial sympathy for the government erected by the votes
of over four-fifths of the Irish people and now operated by
them. NO OTHER. PEOPLE IN THE WORLD ARE SO
