For the first time in many moons,
the writer tried himself away to the
scenic banks of Wev^oka creek Fri-
day afternoon and spent several
hours in a vain attempt to fndnee a
member of the finny tribe to taste
the delicious halt so delicately placed
at the other end of the line. We oc-
casionally ran upon some other per-
sons engage la the same pastime, and
without any attempt to do his his-
toric stream any injustice, we are
compelled to say that the rest of the
folks seemed to be enjoying the same
lack we were. Either there are no
fish In Wewoka creek or they are
the wisest creatures in the universe.
But the on ting was a genuine success
from the standpoint of recreation.

Robert W. Service’s greatest poem has been made
into a magnificient screen drama, with Edmond
Breese, aa the attr. The story, one ot the most throbbing
and dramatic ever produced, revolves around Tim Maxwell,
his wife Lou, their child, and “Dan McGrew.” McGrew
convince8 Lou that her husband is unfaithful, and persuadea
her to elope with him to Alaska. She discovers his despic-
able character, and becomes a woman of the dance halla.
Maxwell becomes a wanderer. At last in the Malamute
saloon, he comes face to face with Dan McGrew. Wlat
happens when these two meet is familiar to readers of Ser-
vice’s famous classic, and it is doubly powerful on the
screen. The snow fields of the reigon of the Yukon fur-
nish a beautiful background for the stirring drama.
