Come in and let us sell you an exclusive, moderately priced hat; we pick our hats with the same care and painstaking selection as we would a $59.00 dress or coat. The price of our hats is no indication of the style and high quality of the models. Come in and buy your Easter "bonnet" where you have learned to expect service and courteous attention.

T HE EASIEST AVAY, written by Walter Eugene 15 years ago, was one of the most talked-about stage successes of that day. In the stage version, if our rather uncertain memory fails us not, the heroine, in the final scene, going out ol the door of her apartment, answers the question of her room-mate, "Where are you going " with these immortal words, "I'm going to hell!" In those good old days, B. S. (before sophistication) this was the last word—nothing more daring had ever been presented to the public gaze. Nowadays we merely yawn, fold hands, settle back and relapse into mental .stupor. At that the producers, afraid of the censors, no doubt, have put "hope" into the final fadeout, for «omc kind friend assures the wayward heroine that her lover will "probably come back to her."

We have never ween the suave old rascal, Adolph Men.iou, in a part better suited to his particular talents.

The Easiest Way is gorgeously mounted, with sumptuous settings, which only serve to emphasize' the tremendous advantage of the talkies over the legitimate.

The cause of death Is not known here, but he had had heart trouble many years. Mrs. Norton was not notified when or where burial would take place. Bert is the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. J. U- Edmonds, oldtime Algon- ians. The elder Edmonds was a carpenter. Bert was born in Wisconsin May 28, 1S71, and was graduated from the high school here. Soon after graduation he went to Des Moines, where he was employed a few years. In 3900 Bert entered government service, and was sent to the Philippine Islands, where he spent three years in the lighthouse service. On return to the United States ho was employed by the government at the World's fair at St. Louis. Thence he went to Ketchikan, where he again served as lighthouse keeper a few years. He had been selling real estate in Ketchikan during the last 15 or 20 years. Mr, Edmonds, who would have been 61 in May, is the first of the J. L. Edmonds children to die. He is the oldest of the children. He is survived by two sisters, Mrs. B. E. Norton, Algona, and Mre. L. E. Thomas, Gary, S. D.; also by a brother, Ralph, of Alaska. taste, but at least we have the audacity to admit the truth, which is somewhat of a virtue in itself, in these days of "grand-standing" and hypocrisy. Hoot Gibson, in the Conccntratin' Kid, fits into the usual western groove—with a plot which follows outlines of the erstwhile dime novels of the late nineties, with tho triumph of virtue over vice as the central theme. There Isn't much else to say, and we waive all further rights to the good folks who prefer a little intelligence in their pictures. But we mourn the passing of tho Saturday western much in the same way as we deplore the disappearance of the old-fashioned Nick Carter; what chance has the modern youngster, with nothing but sex magazines to read?

Lawrence Tibbitt, as the carefree, vagabond black sheep of a southern family, plays an entirely new role and brings to the screen a comedian of no mean ability. He is ably supported by Cliff Edwards and Roland Young, but the rest of the cast is rather negligible, including the erstwhile bathing beauty, Esther Rawlston. Miss Rawlston contributes a lovely figure but her face IS rather against her; she isn't a good screen-type.

We didn't wait to see the triple killing at the end of the picture, but our wife reported that a good clean job was done. Number of deaths actually shown — four; seven additional ones merely mentioned — grand total for one picture, eleven! (Pardon, we forgot the death of the father from heart failure in the second reel, which brings the sum total up to an even dozen, making it easier to remember.) Joan has done something with her eyebrows that irritates ug excessively ; . it gives her eyes a glaring, unnatural look which is decidedly grotesque. She raises and lowers, squints and postures, opens and closes her Ijrowless orbs till we almost want to "walk out" on the old gal. If this is acting heaven help us!
