People's Forum MILADI What the Press Agents Say AT THE EMPRESS Ella Hall returns to the host of admirers she has treated through her skill and artistry as star of earlier Bluebirds with her announced appearance at the Empress theatre tonight last time in "The Little Orphan." There are "fans" who sincerely be-Hevo that Ella Hall is the best interpreter of child-roles in moving pictures today. Then there are others who join in with the opinion that she is about the only screen-queen who can successfully start a role impersonating a kiddle of young years and carry her onward to maturity-all done with truo artistry and with tho best effect. At all events Miss Hall invariably gives a wholesome and satisfying entertainment. The last appearance of J. It. Hall, the singer, tonight. has sent him as his monthly allowance. Diana thinks it is his weekly allowance. She sees a set of furs and decides to purchase them, getting the money from her boy friends. Jimmie gives her a check for'$35 which she raises to ?350.00. When the check is returned marked "No funds" a'detective is sent to investigate. Diana, rushes in, throws her. arms nround Jim-mio's neck just as his mother. Squire Padgato and Jean walk into the room. How affairs are finally straightened out and Jimmie is made to realize that he must earn his own way is brought about in tho most graphic and appealing manner, and must naturally be seen to bo appreciated and enjoyed. This picture along with a good comedy is tho feature at Starland Monday and Tuesday. AT STARLAND /'The Girl at Home" at Starland, starring Vivian Martin and Jack Pick-ford, is a typical boy and girl story. It reminds tho older persons in tho audience of experiences in their own youthful career and it brings surprising revelations to many of tho younger generation. Tho story has to do with Jean Hilton, tho wealthy ward of Squire Padgate who lives with the mother of Jimmie Dexter. Tho boy and girl are in love and Jimmie is preparing for college when his mother learns that her small income is wiped out. Joan is permitted to defray Jlm-mie's expenses without his knowledge. Jimmie falls In with a fast sot of older boys and becomos infatuated with Diana Parish, a cubarot singer. Diana, thinking he is wealthy, pays considerable attontion to him. Back home, Jlmmio's mother and Jean are depriving themselves of all luxuries that Jimmie may finish college. Squire Padgato soes Jimmie and gives him a severe scolding. Jimmie promises to do better and next morning banks his Check for $200.00 which his mother AT THE MAJESTIC A clover comedy drama, with music, in three acts, will be tho next presentation of tho United Producing Co., Ltd., at tho Majestic, Stampede days, next Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, Aug. 15, 16 and 17. It combines a pretty story, much dancing and singing, and Is headed' by the musical comedy stars; Julius Velio and Hazel Wood. The play has been especially designed to appeal to all, particularly to the lovers of music and good dancing, and with performers of Julius Velio and Hazel Wood's ability, last seen in Western Canada in "Freckles," the local theatre-goers are assured tho season's most Important theatrical offering. A large cast of well known principals make this a very expensive undertaking. The usual prices will prevail, however, and' Lethbridge is assured n great treat.

Sir,-It is one of the fundamental principles of political economy that to every transaction there must bo "value-'received"-that a person does not reeoivo "something'' for "nothing." Vet. this principle Is being weekly violated in this city. The editorial on the. milk supply of Lethbridge in this week's issue of I lie Telegram is one of the most glaring examples of arm-chair, asinine criticism that can bo Imagined. Had ihe writer of that article made tho slightest attempt to investigate the question at issue he ..would never have made such a sorry spectacle of himself and the sheet ho edits. He says, "there Is in the city at least one dairy where the milk deserves tho suspicion that it is skimmed." If he knows this to he a fact what has he done to try to remedy the defect? lias he reported the offender to tho sanitary inspector, to the health officer, to any oilicial? This Innuendo benefits no one but leaves all dairies open to suspicion. Now he goes on to say "whether tests are periodically made wo know not," a frank admission of crass ignorance, ignorance of the subject about which he writes, ignorance of tho subject ho attempts' to criticise. Again: "There is nothing made public. What Is the reason?" Well may the question be asked!. Not by him, but of him. It is up to him to answer. We are told in sacred writ that "tho old men shall dream dreams." I presume in this case the editor had a pipe dream or fell asleep or has sunk into the desuetude of 'decreptitude. He remarks, "one of tho dutieB of the medical officer of health is . . . to see that the milk supplied to citizens is beyond suspicion and carries with it. a proper quantity of nutritive elements." Now if any child writing on the entrance examinations were to use such batty balderdash he would be plucked instanter and properly so. Yet this from the pen of an editor, yo gods and little fishes, what does it mean? (1 am sending a marked copy to the "Literary Digest" for interpretation). But forget the atro-Mme.

'' up this arm-chair critic in his true light.; " Every month, every dairy, every dairy farm is inspected. A schedule Is made as follows: "Owner's or lessees,' name; _ nrilk 'Tetafled by (name); quarts produced daily. A possible total of 10Q_ marks is taken as the standard and each farm i3 graded, 25 marks being a possible for each of the following heads, cows, stables, milk house, milking. The marks for July varied: Cows, from .........,. L'.'i to 25 Stables .. ........ 10 to 21 Milk house........ 15 to 21 Milking .. ;....... 1G to 21 Total :.'.......... 70 91 Again samples of milk are taken from the delivery wagons on the street at uncertain, different times and uncertain, divers, places, just as the milk Is delivered to tho. customer. Each sample is tested for specific gravity, butterfat, solids (not fat), total solids, water. Now regarding the allegation of milk being skimmed, the provincial health act calls for "fat not less than 3 per cent." Tho poorest sample of our milk was 3.4 per cent, the highest 4.4 per cent. Now what becomes of tho "suspicion" that the milk is skimmed. Every sample taken was away above the standard required by law! So much for the Ethiopian in the wood pile! More probably there is a wandering cat to blame. Further the milk is tested for sediment and grade from 1 clean, to 5 dirty, the grades ranged from 1 to Now all this is embodied in a report overy month and presented to tho board ot health. More than that, nine copies are struck off, one for each of the six members of tho board, one for filing by the city clerk and one copy for- each of tho. two city papers. Weil .may . the question bo asked: "Nothing is made public. What is the reason?" Now let tho self-con-stitutod critic answer his own question! The board of health is a public body, organized according to the public health act of Alberta. It meets at leaBt once every' month In' the Counci| chamber, Its meetings are open to thd pnbllc and the press. Now, I ask, why is nothing made public? Why does not the editor of the Telegram avnli;;hilnuseif of the open door, attend the meetings, or at leaBt get the Information always there waiting We have returned from a holiday and are showing all the up-to-date ideas in good photography.

Advertising may make a poor article sell for a while, but the most persistent advertising would not induce you to make a second purchase of  thing that turned out to be fraudulent, and the profit on the first sale would never pay for the advertising. Do you not think the advertisers know this? They fully realize that the very first essential of success is to have something worthy, something that people want and will keep on buying. If you see a thing advertised regularly week after week, year after year, it is safe to conclude that it potsesses actual merit and is well worth its cost. ,v �' ,.' ;
