.' KKliJAT, MARCH 5, 19L8: THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVUJLE, PA. PAGE NINE. FORMED DICKERSN RUN INSPECTOR SELECIJED SERVICE IN PRANCE Skill In some useful line of endeavor ; ieace on the railroad and about cars I takes precedence over ability as a musician In the army and John "W. Wilson, of VanderbJJt, formerly a .car Inspector for the Pittsburg *; Lake Erie Railroad company at Dickerson iZun, has been transferred from a band at Camp Gordon to a company, of railroad engineers and ordered to an eastern concentration canrp for transportation to France, according to a letter received by Charles Foreman' o* Dawson. Wilson, who is a son of Mr. and Mrs. William Wilson, was first sant with draftees to Camp Lee and then thansferred to Camp Gordon. .His letter reads, in part: "Bear Friend Cbariss: I saw In the papers where Cable had taken the daylight job on the shop track and my brother Ralph -was telling me that J. K. Evans is traveling car inspector. Well old boy, I expect to be inspecting cars soon myself, .bat not in this country. I suppose that it will sorprise you some to hear that I am not In the bane. any more. On account.of my eiper- was tramferred to.the railroad engi- nen and am watting orders to more to a conceatraUon camp and; then across the Viond.' I have been in the army just five months today and it seems like five years. / "I never thought last February at Ibis time that I would be getting ready to so erou the Atlantic to work on a railroad-in-France, but one can never tell what is going to happen. There are about 125 fellows ia the company with me and «ll*bave worked about cars. There are two formerly ^employed by the Western Maryland at Hagerstown. My I just hated to leave the band, and the boye hated- to see me go. They are surely a fine lot and it in just like boing at home. "You surely do have a lot of writing to do on tne joh now but at that I with I wa» .there working with you instead of going across. But I am no coward and am willing to die lor my country." M "DRAFT 25S"--Successor to the "Slacker," and starring MabeJ Talia- ferror, the charming actress, is being presented today. A mammoth -representation of the ."Tower of Babel" was erected ou Long Island for use in "Draft 258",' directed by Williim Christy Cabanne. an,d written by himself ia collaboration with June Mathis. Elephants, camels, goats and donkeys word use in these sceav 3- not to mention a thousand players dressed as Babylonians, Assyrians, Jews, Romans, priests slaves and barbarians. These will be shown on th* screen, representing every phase of'tie rich vari colored life of Asia Minor in the days of 222T B. C. Many natives of that picturesque region were secured for the picture. "The Tower of Babel" scenes town an interpose in the picture and have a strong bearing on the . story itself, although the general ; theme of the production belongs most emphatically " to the present time. · "Draft 25S," is said to eclipse 'The Slacker." The production will also be shown tomorrow. Monday. Edith Storey will be featured in "The Eyes of Msptery," a melodramatic offering in five reels. Mae ilarsh and Tom .\foore 'will be seen soon In "The Cinderella Man," a Goldwyn attraction, as will Constance Talmadge appear soon in "Scandal." reliance of the modern woman .'as compared with her sister in put generation: is - strikingly shown, for in many cues the coivlry of th« modern IXAr£agnn is mistaken, and his · gallant attempts to assist ladles In j distress lead to rebukes from the in- i dependent maidens who are on the | alert to squelch flirtations peats. However, Ned finally meets his fate in the person of -Majorie Daw, who plays the ·part of Dorothy Morane, .a tourist, and in scenes of super-heroism, done in dashing Fairbanks style, he saves the girl from a horrible fate and wins a bride. THE SOISSOS. THE XRCATOE. "A Xignt at .Sherry's". .One of the feature which will be present^ at the Arcade tod^ * ni i tomorrow by the Johnny Jones '-Musical Comei^y company, will be a jazz dance by Jour girls lott by Miss Flo Morris, said to be th/'best female buck Sano.-r in the country.' Her work so far Uiis week has been much appreciated. Another out of the ordinary song num-ber will be "The Dixie Volunteers," by Ike Morris, a set of special scent ry being used for this song only. He will be assisted by a chorus and electrical effects. Lee Richey will srfog "At Tour Service," and Cumberland's favorite fair haired boy will put plenly of ginger into this syncopated appeal. Melvin will sing an original oddity, "Pick- aniny." written by himself, and his specalty includes another soag number. Jack La Mont will sing "On the 5:15." in his own peculiar way and Miss Melvin will sing ""Keeii it Us". Miss pattullo's selection will be ''The ·World 'Will Be Jealous of Me". "The sketch was written by. Irwin Wallace. The picture will be William 5. Hart in "His Last Hani."* Coming next week is Jack Grant, said to the funkiest man in burnt cork. He is supported by a capable company headed by Sfiss Hazel McKenna who appears in the role of a tan colored girl, the characterization of which has been at- tnr»ted by but one or two other ladies. She is heralded as being as fanny as any of the women in big time vaudeville. A trio that sings three songs at the same time it another feature. . . In addition to the fine production of "Lena Rivers" by the-Manhattan Players tonight.the patrons of the Soiseon will have a chance to win a big, useful prize at the country grocery store. The Manhattan Players have set a new standard for amusements in ConnallB- ville and during the past nine weeks have been giving a splendid repertoire o; plays faultlessly acteij'and staged. I Mr. Hlllis wishes the friends of the i Manhattan Players to know that bei ginning next Monday there will be another exceptional stock company at I the Soisson theater. The new ittric- [ tion is the Jack Ball Stock company which comes, here direct from a long and most successful stay at the Herald Square theater, StwibenvUle, Ohio. The newcomers are excellent and will prove a worthy successor to the present organization. The. Jack Ball Stock Co- will 9pcn a magnificent production of the well known success "The Natural Law." Lovers of good plays should not miss this real treat. "BETTER EVERY WAY," HE SAYS Smelter in Mint Was Too Busy Making Silver Dollars to Guard Health. THE OKPHTEtrjf.

The photoplay is released 1 by Artcraft, and is in. line with Ifeirbanka' recent productions with scenes of ultra-aensationaHsra and humor. Fairbanks interprets the role of Ned Thaeker, of Kansas, who inherited the spirit of D*Arta£nan through parental Influence, his mother "haying been an ardent reader of Dumas.
