George Sti'wiirts Home Again— Mr. and Mrs. George Stewart, who went to Des Moines last week Tuesday evening, returned the following Thursday to await a summons to Kansas City, where he will undergo an operation on 9ne leg. They had planned to go to Kansas City from Des Molnes, but had to return home and wait awhile as the hospital Is filled at this time. Annual Ba/nar Clears $85— The annual bazaar last week AVcd- ess 'a marvel of realism, despite the unlikely plot. Mae Marsh, back on the sciven after a long absence, going almost to the silent Birth of a Nation days, plays the role of the overworked and patient mother with her keen perception. James . Klrk- wootl, another old-timer of the silent rtayx, is equally convincing as the lusty husband. Other parts are well tnk'en.

And until you have yourself spent not less' than $50.00 for charity, it might be "charitable" to withhold judgment altogether. 1 lit: illll lUtll (J(l/iilill 1H3L S> Ct;|V V> wv»~ >» V.
