Biggest Star in Films in a Rugged, Smashing Role.
America'* Most Popular Actor
“Rough and Ready”
Wm. Fox De Luxe Production
The powerful portrayal of a man’s Herculean struggle
against overwelming odds.
“Punch” has become a much abused word in motion pic-
tures. But “Rough and Ready” certainly has that quality
in abundance. It is packed with swiftest action.
Wm. Farnum’s portrayal of Bill Stratton, a man whose
heart was seared by an unjust accusation, but whose soul re-
mained as white as ever, will live in your memory.
You never have known how wonderfully beautiful snow
can appear on the screen, until you have seen it in “Rough
and Ready,” scenes of which are laid in the frozen North.
“I’ll Sit in Your Parlor Some Day!”
Vowed Big John Doran. He was a man of primeval strength
and elemental passions. She was a shallow, selfish society
beauty who had used him as a “plaything.” Now she had
tired of this new “novelty;” had scorned him as common clay
and her scorn had stung him to the quick and had awakened
in him his dormant manhood and slumbering power. In his
own way, he voved that some day he would be her equal—he
would make her pay for her derision.

A smashing 5 part Blue Ribbon feature with a punch in every
foot, presenting Harry Morey in the best role
of his entire screen 'career.

Approximately 1,000 citizens of Par-
ker county heard Governor Hobby
speak in the interest of his candidacy
for governor in the district court room
at the court house Monday afternoon
at 2 o’clock. Governor Hobby arrived
Monday morning at 10 o’clock over
the Texas & Pacific from Austin,
where he had been since Saturday
night. He was met at the station by
the Parker County Hobby committee
and taken at once to the Montfort
hotel, where a luncheon was served
at the noon hour. Fully fifty automo-
biles were in the parade from the
union station to thje hotel.
The luncheon at ih^ Montfort hotel
was attended by members of the Par-
ker County Hobby committee together
with representatives of the various
voting precincts of the county. Among
those present were W. W. McCrary,
Judge J. M. Richards, W. S. Fant, J.
H. Doss, Rev. W. M. Elliott, Rev. J.
N. McCain, Rev. T. S. Barcus, W. H.

Judge T. F. Temple, Judge and Mrs.
F. O. McKinsey, Mr. and Mrs. A. T.
Collier, Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Alvis and
Judge E. A. Swofford.
Governor Hobby was introduced by
Mayor Bunch, who in the course of
his introductory remarks paid a'glow-
ing tribute to Governor Hobby, declar-
ing that more substantial legislation
had been enacted during the short
time he had been in office than any
time in the history of»the state.
Governor Hobby’s address was along
lines similar to speches in other parts
of the state. In beginning his address
the governor paid a high tribute to
the women voters of the state, assert-
ing that he was glad that the time had
finally come in the statt
when a candidate could
body of voters as fellow citizens and
include the women. Fully one-third
of the crowd who heard Governor
Hobby were women and many of them
seemed to be enthusiastic Hobby sup-
porters. Women campaign workers
were stationed at each entrance to the
court house throughout the speaking
distributing Hobby literature to wom-
en and men alike.
Governor Hobby was speaking at
press time Monday afternoon. A sum-
mary of his address will appear in
Tuesday’s issue of the Herald.

mission. Soon after receiving his com-
mission, he, with several other young
officers, were transferred to Camp
