However it is certain that with the property thus placed in the city's name, and the property taken out of the taxable assessment as a result of the now act governing non-taxation of soldiers' homes, will run over the mill Ion dollar mark. No pronouncement has yet been made at the city hall na to how tlii� matter is to be treated. Ifowever, if the property Blandiug in the city's name as a re-unit of tlie tax sale, is classed as non-ratable In 1918, it will have the effect of boosting the tax rate on tho rat-Bble assessment, and any reduction in tlie mill rate whicli it had been hoped to effect win likely be lost.

The Flavbtr Lasts OVER THE TOP" W MT.EMPEYBOOe FORlJESTiCIiEM MANAGER BROWN HE WILL SHOW SUPER PRODUCTION FAMOUS FIGHTER THIS WEEK I i , "Over the Top," a feature foundod on Guv Kmpey's famous K�r \n>V. nl tli same title, has been imoked by Manager firown, of the Majestic Tiieatre. and will lie shown le re on Friday and Haturduy this wo'k, with special Saturday matinee. Sergeant Kmpey. iirnlKildv the host known soldier of all the luillions who have fought In the trendies of France to stem the tide of Gem,an oarDarism, appears as Ihe star of � '.jv.'r the To|i." and ho is said to eiuut vividly the Blirrinj; experiences niei by Ibe Frencli and British who hebl tln' lines against llie Boche in the firs; mad months of the war. I "Over the Top," the lirst authentic > reproduction of the draiua and tragedy i that Is the war, has Ih'cu hailed as one ; of tho greatest photoiilays in the his-, tory of motion plctun s. and la ranked ; as the foremost of ail the super-pro-; ductlona of tho screi n liecause of the ] personality of the star and the im-j portame of the iilay as a contribution ! 1,0 the historical pliasi- of the war and j its relation to (lie �,',iir work of the ; United States. 'Bec.-iii,-,- a legulari army training camp v. as used in mak-j ing the trench scenes and American i regulars were employed in the mimic | l)attlen, the play bus received semi-' official recognition liom the War l)e-1 partment, and it tlius takes a place In the great machliirry of the Govern-: ment scheme of hiiiniiig Ihe National; Army and the people lo a realization j of the task thai lies before Iho United ; States. j Albert K. Sniiili, president of (lie j Vitagrapli Comiiany of .\merica, is' credited .wiiii having scored one of tii" I greatest accnniplishmcnts in tho his-; tory of motion pictures in bringing Sergeant Knipey and "Over the Top" j to the screen. The little American, who ' is a native of Ogden. Utah, was one of i the first Americans to risk his life !u tlie defense of civilization when the; Germans made ilioir assault on the ! freedom of mankind. He joined the j First Iloyal r'^iisiliers of London, one j of the contingontH that made up Kitchener's Army," and served eighteen montiis in the front line trenches! as infantryman, macliine gunner and bomber, and was wounded seven times in battle. He was invalided lo America and jU8t as soon as hia physical condition permitted, lie launched into patriotic work over here. He soHd more than a million dollars of Ulberty Bonds, aided the Red ('ross and soldiers' smoke funds, and was a potent factor in recruiting the Itegular U. S. Anny lo ,war strength after we had entered the ,eonflict. He wrote "Over the Top" at mo behest of friends wiio were convinced his story had value as a patriotic docunteut, and he took the lecture platform on the same basis. Overnight nlmont, this plain soldier with p. plain story of the war became an international figure. Ho was in demand all over tli(> i'ountry and he spoke lo hundreds of thousands of people. As usual with individuals suddenly become famous, T3mpoy was sought after by theatricnl innn.igers for a vnudaville tour and no loss than four big motion piclure companies made glittering proimsiHons to iiim. But to all of tliese offers Empey turned a cold shoulder. He lefuscd Ij consider Uiinsejf a hero and ho refused lo cap-itali'.'.S the suffering and hardship that �Is tho portion of Ihe millions if "Tom-i:tlos" iind "polliis" who mak' up tho human wall that is saving humanity from tho ravages of tho Hun horde. However, Albert E. Smith siiccoodod where all the others had failed, and Empey consented to appear in tho Vlt-Bgraph production only wdien convinced that a motion picture playing up tho high lights of "Over the Top" would "allow Americans just wdial wo aro up ngninsi over there." Manager Brown of the Majestic Theatre, considers "Over the Top tho most important ' motion picture that he has ever shown to his pa Irons, He says that while there is a strong patriotic appeal in it, there is nlBO a most thrilling dranui In which the romance and hiimorous sidelights of the great struggle ^iro brought Into strong relief. Ho says tho picture was moro than three months in th.? niok-ing and that more than 7,,'iOO tl. S. Regulars were used in the battle scenes.
