A fleeting state of mind like this:
Deep ravine between those hills,
Carter's Little Liver Pills;
What a beautiful terrain,
Tiger Tooth Ease Stops That Pain;
See those birds with reddish bills,
Carter's Little Liver Pills;
How evenly that field is mowed,
Kelly-Springfield's Hold the Road;
What.a gentle water flow,
Have a Smokewith Velvet Joe;
There's a pretty lively rill,
Carter's Little Liv-oh will
These everlasting signs not cease
And leave the countryside in peace?
No chance, i&'s more important far
That we should know how ill we are
Than that our farmlands should
remain
A joy to tourists on the train.

The plot briefly is that of the mis-
understood husband. Through at-
tempting to reform Emily Dixon, a
former friend, Anatol De Witt Spencer
has a falling out with his wife, which
falling out is later reinforced by An-
atol's escapade with a certain Mrs.
Elliott. Enraged by his failure as a
reformer and by the misconception
which his wife places upon his inno-
cent -acts, the outraged husband flees
to the arms of Satan Synne, the wick-
edest woman in New York as one may
easily deduce from her onomatopoetic
name. At this point the story takes
its one turning from the ordinary,
but the end sees Anatol and his wife
once more completely reconciled.
The dramatic moments are excel-
lently portrayed by Bebe Daniels who
rises to new height -in this produc-
tion, while inimitabli Theodore Rob-
erts and his aforementioned weed
furnish transcending intervals of
comedy.
"The Ten Dollar Raise" with
Charles Ray in the lead opens the
week at the Arcade with a three day
run. Beautiful daughters, reprobate
sons, oil elds, gambling houses, a
rich, miserly president, and a deserv-
ing but oppressed employee, all these
ingredients have been shoved into the
movie melting pot according to re-
cipe, and have been poured out and
hardened into the rough surface of
"The Ten Dollar Raise." Those who
enjoy Charles Ray will enjoy this pic-
ture. 'It is no better and no worse
than the rest.
For Wednesday and Thursday the
Arcade has booked Alice Brady in
"Little Italy." Miss Brady's acting is
hwell done, but she is handicapped by
a story which has been haphazardly
draped about her. The plot is the old
chestnut of a feud between two Itali-
an families, but recognizing the ad-
vantages of America, they have car-
ried hostilities from the sunny land
of their nativity all the way to Con-
nectigut. Those who stay long enough
will see how the daring young heroine
brings peace and prosperity to her
clan, and drags her Romeo to the al-
tar._
The Arcade closes its week with
Constance Binney in "Room and
Board." It is the story of an impov-
