Common Decency and the Movies.
A protest if nude by manager, c moving
licture theaters that the order of Director Gen
eral Hays, forbidding tlie exhibition of film, in
which Kotcoe (Fatty) Arbutkle ii shown, de
prives the public of amusement it crave. Such
protestor, overlook the main point entirely.
While the jury at San Francisco, on the third
trial, decided that Arb'urkle was not criminally
guilty of causing the death of Virginia Rappe, it
did not dear him of having been the host at a
digraceful orgy, a result of which was the death
of one of the participants. Nor does the verdict
of the third jury do away with the action of two
previous juries, each of which contained some
members who believed, on the evidence submit
ted, that Arbutkle is guilty.
A far greater point than Arbucklc's guilt or
innocence is at stake, and the issue involves the
entire moving picture industry. One effect of
the trial was to establish that Arbuckle belonged
to a group of so-called "artists" whose private
lives were a reproach to decent society. Not a
manager would dare to put alongside the an
nouncement, of an Arbuckle comedy a detailed
account of how he behaved himself at his "par
ties." Does his ability to cut up and perform
amusing antics serve to excuse his debauchery?
Art may cover a multitude of sins, but Ameri
can notions of decency insist that public exhibi
tions be not reminders of unsavory scenes that
ire not shown openly. When the Arbuckle and
Taylor scandals were frei, many pledges of
reformation were made; now is a good time to
redeem them. If the moving picture industry is
to be cleansed, the work will best be done froai
within. Managers who have Arbuckle films in
stock wrill serve themselves well by charging the
same to profit and loss, and will gain in the end
by blessing Will H. Hays and obeying his orders.
Play for Parsons and Others.
A Presbyterian church in a small town in
Illinois has just settled a momentous question.
Its members have decided, after much prayerful
consideration, that their pastor may play billiards.
This may seem an odd point on which a congre
gation could become agitated, but many a schism
has rested on a smaller issue. Involved in it is
the greater question of the pastor's relation to
his flock, his character as an intermediary or in
tercessor, his responsibility for the moral as well
as material welfare of his congregation. He is
not only to guide them by precept, but also by
example, and thus is required at all times to be'
duly circumspect in his walk and conversation.
Once much more was looked for in the man
who assumed the garb and duties of a minister.
He must eschew and avoid many things that
might be permitted the layman, and consequently
was deprived of not a little pleasure of an earthly
character in order that he might be the better
equipped to minister unto those who came seek
ing for spiritual consolation and guidance. The
fountain head must be kept clean and sweet, no
matter how disturbed and muddied the waters
Other times, other manners. Humanity has
come to know that a long face is not always a
sure sign of a clean heart, nor does a sanctimon
ious aspect inevitably betoken rectitude and
probity in a man. But greater than this, even,
the congregation has learned that, indeed "a merry
heart doe'th good like medicine," and that a
preacher's "capacity for innocent enjoyment - is
quite as great as any other man's." It is not a
letting down, then, when the minister engages
with his fellow-men ill healthy sport and games
of skill. 1 .
Billiards is a fine game. It calls for excellent
, judgment and control of the physical and mental
faculties. Eye and hand must co-ordinate in
action, and nerve and muscle be in perfect har
mony to get results. Herbert Spencer is credited
with having once said that "moderate proficiency
at the game is proof of good breeding," and that
remark may stand. It is not in billiards alone
that a parson may iifdulge, for the golf links at
tract him, he can also play baseball, while some
have of late taken up the practice of boxing.
Other avenues of innocent, occupation are yet
open to him, .and he will in time come to be
reckoned as a regular fellow, fully entitled to all
the privileges of the human race.
Music in the Court Room.
"Music, heavenly maid," is not to be aban
doned entirely as an adjunct to other activities
than worship or 'entertainment. Shakespeare
may have had its newest application in mind
when he wrote that "Music hath charm to sooth
the savage breast." At any rate, a police judge
in San Francisco is said to have adopted a
phonograph as part of his court room equipment,
and administers justice to the playing of ap
propriate airs. For example, a lone auto speeder
is reported to have met his fate while the record
was grinding out "All by Myself." Other selec
tions pat were employed as culprits filed past
the bar of justice and were acquainted with the
, "bad news."
Advantage certainly docs reside in this. Under
the spell of a soothing or inspiring air, the mis-,
doer will get the more fitting mood, and wrill
view his deed and its consequent doom in a
light he could not otherwise attain, and recon
ciliation to punishment be temporarily a matter
of easy accomplishment. Also, the phonograph
may aid in selecting the sheep from the goats,
tfec hardened from those who have not become

prisoner who does not, while at the bar, show
an Inclination t sureumb to the melody that ae
companies i arraignment may t itl at

With all that psychology Itai done, bailed up

Omaha and Religion.
I'tw of us art as good as we might be, but
that admission does not back up the assertion oj
a clrrgvman that Omaha is turning from religion.
It it well, no doubt, to be troubled over the
state of one's tout, but it it unwite to attempt
to indict a whole city.
Some remarks made by' Bishop Homer C
Stunt, in a sermon at hit old home iu Waterloo,
la., touch this question. Teople in Iowa, Ne
bra.ka, Kansas, the Dakotat and Minnesota have
the privilege of living in an area which hat more
religion to the square mile than any similar area
on the globe," this Methodist divine declared.
"Religion in these states findt iti highest ex
preition from the viewpoint of church member
thip and at an active force in business, politics,
and all other mundane relationships," be con
tinued. Omaha, which it berated jn the farewell ser
mon of another preacher, it made up of people
from the region outlined by the bi.hop. The let
tons of a life-time are not cast aside by new
arrivals in the city, and if they bring with them
faith, there it naught here that can rob them of
if! I'osibly there are temptations stronger than
in the outlying communities, but it can not be
proved that they are any greater than those of
other large cities. These temptations may be,
and often are, overcome, this to the strengthen
ing of character.
Geographically speaking, Omaha seems to be
just as near the kingdom as any .of its lesser
neighbors and just as far from Sodom and
Putting Nature in the Limelight.
In jest, even more than in fact, among the
mysteries of nature none has been darker than
the underground caverns such as are found in
Kentucky's Mammoth cave and in the Cave of
the Winds, alonsr the border of Nebraska, and
South Dakota. Geologists are now able to clear
up the unhasting yet unresting manner in which
these were formed and electric lights strung
through some of these are revealing new won
ders as well as extinguishing the darkness that
has .filled them for ages.
A labyrinth of 30 subterranean rooms known
as the Endless Caverns only recently has been
opened near 'New Market, Va., although their
existence has been known since 1879. Many
more rooms will be accessible to tourists as
soon as passages are cleared and light wires are
The streams that once rushed through this
channel have dug deeper outlets and today the
floor of the cave is dry. The roof is studded
with stalactites, the smallest consisting of single
stone icicles no longer than a finger; the largest
clusters resemble huge pipe organs or the fluted
folds of rich drapery. Countless stalagmites rise
from the ground to suggest grotesque gnomes
of the underworld.
The blaze of light shows one chamber like
a ballroom, another, an oriental palace. Par
ticularly beautiful it is with' roof and walls cov
ered with a filigree-like network bf limestone
formation that is said weirdly to suggest bands
of fairies dancing in the moonlight Far in the
interior lies Diamond lake, a shallow pool
stretching farther than the eye can reach under
a roof scarce two feet high. Visitors are lined
up before this pool in total darkness, and then
suddenly the cleft is flooded with light from
concealed electric bulbs, the crystals of the roof
blazing and sparkling like gems. The illumina
tion then is shifted so that the scene shows
only the crystal studded roof reflected in the still
water of he pool. 1
' Science says that these wonderful Shenandoah
valley caverns were eaten out in past ages by
water from rain and snow that found its way
through . sinkholes into the rocks. Each drop
dissolves some of the limestone, but it cannot car
ry off all that it dissolves. This excess is deposited
on the roof,' forming the icicle-like stalacities,
while similarly pointed stalagmites arise from
the drip on the floor. The present dryness is
explained' either by a lift in the land, or by a
lowering of the beds of the surface streams.
One can hardly regard these wonders of na
ture vwithout awe, even in the presence of a
science that disperses thcirmysterious shadows
and explains their history.
The ex-kaiser, it is rumored, is to forsake his
widowerhood and wed the Baroness Gabrielle v.on
Rpchow next month Certainly she is not mar
rying him for his rank, and except for the fact
that she is more than 60 years old, the affair
might be dismissed as a love match.
President Harding's approval of the pending
McNarray bill which provides a $350,000,000 re
volving fund for land development means much
to the irrigation districts of western Nebraska.
The retiring police chief of Los Angeles" who
remarked that the public' is a bunch of saps was
perhaps only looking at his own reflection. At
all events he has joined the bunch.
No gentleman would contradict a lady, so the
statement of Lady Astor that there is nothing
remarkable about her will have to be agreed to,
politefully but, regretfully.
Some facts are being brought out in the road
inquiry that were not referred to by the letter
writers. Maybe the investigation will not be
fruitless after all.

white in the last six months, but he can turn it

WRECKS HAPPINESS AND HOME
After Suffering Indescribable Tortures for Years
A WIFE'S TERRIBLE CONFESSION "
"Mr marriage, four years ago, waa a
'love marriage,' if ever there was one. I
had known my intended husband for sev
eral years and there had never been a
quarrel nor a cross word between us. We
had a wonderful honeymoon and the first
two yeir3 of our married life were the
happiest years of my life. I adored my
husband and he thought I was the most
wonderful and beautiful woman in the
world. Then a dozen little things began
to fret and annoy ma. everything seemed
to go wrong. It seemed to me that every
remark my husband made was critical
or irritating and I caught myself making
sharp and sarcastic replies.
"Finally it got ao that life seemed- made
up of just a series of petty squabbles.
Often we would quarrel and not speak to
each other for days at a time, t dreaded
in the evening to hear the step that I
had so often waited for with joy and long
ing. My nerves were completely exhausted
and worn out: my face became sallow and
haggard. I began to have frequent pains
in my back and after 2 had eaten, my
meals felt like a lump of lead. If the
door slammed or some one 'startled' me I
almost jumped out of my skin. Finally,
I went to the Doctor and told him my
story. I told him that my husband no
longer loved me and that his awful tem
per and terrible scoldings were making
me almost an Invalid. You can imagine
how indignant I was when the Doctor told
me it was all my fault.
"He ssid that on account of my own
highly nervous condition I had subjected
my husband to a constant nervous strain
and that the only trouble with either of
us waa that we were nervous and all run
down. Later all this I found out to' be
true, bersuae after I regained my health
and revitalised my own worn-out exhausted
pervt centers, and the same was don lor
my husbaiVd, I found him to be agaH ,
the dearest husband In the world hit
whole disposition entirely changed."
The above is a hypothetical case, which
a physicisn says may well Illustrate thou
sands which exist today. Homes ar
wrecked, children ruined, all through ex
hausted nerve force. Very few peopio
realise the terrible physical and mental
tortures often caused by a depletion of
the nervo-vital fluid.
In such cases it ia worse than footish
to waste your time taking stimulating
medicines or narcotic drugs. Your starving
nerve oells must have more nerve force,
the same as a starving person must have
food. This is best accomplished by in
creasing the activity and power of the
nerve-foree-making organs, the principal
one of which is the blood. This can be
quickly and most effectively accomplished
by the free use of Muxated Iron which not
only increases the activity of tha blood
making organs, but K feeda true, red blood
food directly to the blood itself, thereby
helping to create millions of new red blood
cells. This wonderfully increases the
power of th blood to help manufacture
new nerve force, th earn as enriching
th soil increase its power to grow mora
wheat, corn or oats.
If you are suffering from nerve forca
exhaustion you can quickly and easily
prove to yourself tha power of Nuxated
Iron to help overcome your condition and
make you strong and vigorous again br
the following simple test: Make a not
of all your symptoms before you start
take Nuxated Iron for two weeks, then go
through your list of symptoms again and!
you can at one see how they hav dis
appeared and wKat it has done for you.
If you have not obtained the most sur
prising results, all and even more thai
you expect, the manufacturer will i-roms."
