It will be remembered that Mrs. Bixler was in Fairmount a short time ago in search of her mother, Mrs. Vaughn, whom she had not seen for years. Mrs. Bixler writes expressing her gratitude to Mr. Wil- son for his help in locating her moth-, er as follows: "Your letter was received a few days ago and was very much appreciated. The Indianapolis News and Star had almost the same account as The Fairmount News. The local police wrote me they had a letter from my mother and would send it to me just as soon as they gpt my address, but I had been to Argos and found my mother there. And I do want to thank you many times for your help in locating her. Mother is not very well. She has neuritis and high blood pressure and looks very bad. I am going back to see her Saturday, March 25, and will send your regards to her then. Thanking you very much, MRS. B. F. BIXLER." BERXICE ROBINSOX WINNER OF CONTEST.

Latest Paramount Picture Production to be Seen at the Royal Wednesday and Thursday Filmed under more or less unpro-pitious weather conditions, yet being a masterpiece of direction, acting and photography, "The Little Minister," Betty Compson's latest Paramount picture produced by Pen-ryhn Jtanlavs, will be the feature at the Royal theatre for two days be-ginir.g Wednesday next. The dainty star is said to have an unusually attractive role in Lady Babbie, one of Sir James M. Barrie's finest creations. Miss Compson admits that she approached the role of Lady Babbie with some misgrivir.grs, for she believed it was going to be far more difficult than it proved to be. "As a matter of fact," said she when the last shot had been fired, "Babbie isn't a bit different, temperamentally, from a lot of other girls I have portrayed. A genuine coquette, she leads poor Gavin a pretty dance almost any girl can do that. But her witchery that forces the little minster to defend her, even in the face of his own conscience, was a delightful-thing to try to put across, and it pleases me immensely to be told that I succeeded." Not in a long time has a greater variety of quaint and colorful costumes been seen in a film production than those in "The Little Minister." English soldiers of the period of 1S30, constables, Scotch weavers and peasantry, lord and ladies, mingle in a most picturesque medley of color and design, so far as costumes go. Miss Compson for the most part wears a most becomingi gypsy garb, later appearing in a typical gown of the period, all flounces and ruffles and with a sVIrt yards around. As Gavin, the little minister, George Haekathorne in his tight-fitting trousers, high hat and frock coat is a quaint figure, while Nigel Barrie as Capt. Halliwell, flamboyant in red and blue uniform and tremendous hat with flowing plume, presents a most striking contrast. WHOLE THRESHING RINGS URGED TO TREAT OATS The threshing machine is one of the bes2 ways to spread oat smut and the only way to really avoid this disease next summer now is for every man in a threshing rinn to treat his seed oats, if there was any smut in the threshing ring last year. A number of farmers now take the pains to clean out a threshing machine thoroughly before their grain is threshed but this does not get rid of all the dust or the smut spors. The smut particles, according to Dr. C. T. Gregory of the botanical staff of Purdue University, are not nearly as large as the dust particles and are harder to dislodge in a threshing outfit. The only way these are cleaned out is by running clean oats through the separator. Then, this clean oats becomes infect-er, and must be treated every year to avoid smut. Where all the men in a threshing ring treat, the seed need be treated only every three years to keep the disease out. Ore pint of formaldehyde with an equal part of water, used in a hand sprayer, is enough to treat 40 to 50 bushels of oats or if it is mixed with between four and five gallons of water and every other shovelful sprinkled lightly, it will treat the same amount. This latter method, known as the modified dry method, is somewhat easier and is proving more popular this year in the state. Mount Vesuvius is the only active volcano on the continent of Europe.
