THE WORLDS GREAT SNAR In the role of Myra, the fasci nating heroine 6f E. Phillips Op ^enheim’s thrilling story, “The Woild’s Great Snare,” Pauline Frederick is eedowed with nu merous opportunities to display the charm, magnetism, and em otional power that have made her one of the foremost favorites of the screen. As a cabaret dancer, who smiles gaily upon the world, but whose heart conceals crush ing sorrows and despairs, Miss Frederick contributes one of the most powerful and symprthetic characterizotions in all filmdom: The Famous Players Film Corn pany’s production of this famous story prossesses all the superb qualities of pictorial and dramatic strength for which this leading producing company is noted.

BIG INCREASE Atlanta, Ga.~If shipments of booze into Atlanta continue to in crease for the next few weeks as they have since the new new pro hibition laws went in to effect last May 1, the city’s record for the month of December will be in the neighborhood of 100,000 pack ages.. In September the ship ments numberer 31,789. In Oct. they jumped 50 per-cent, to 45,273. If they jump fifty per cent in November, which seems likely, they will go to 78,000, and if they jump fifty per-cent again in December they will go above 100,000. In view of the celebrations in cident to the Christmas holidays, it appears to be quite likely, not to say certain, that Atlanta will require at least 100,000 packages during the closing month of the year.

COUNT! FOB WILSON Both, the good old state ot Georgia and the county of De catur went into the Democratic column by the old fashioned majority route. A swift and Strong rebuke was given the bolters and the element of men that would deliver the state to influences that we know not of. The men who love the south and its traditions stuck by the old party that brought them safely through the most stormy days of our history and rolled up the usual vote in its behalf. This election will mark some very de cided changes in the future con duct of democratic matters in this state and the rank and file of democracy will see the dawn ing of the day when party will mean something. The opposition to Wilson polled about 300 votes in this county from the socialists, progressives, republicans and colored voters and the democrats polled something like 1000. These facts will bring out some study in the future. We are sorry to learn of the illness of little Dorothy Cohn, weo has been confined to bed for the past week. The Greatest American of the Age Put up the Greatest Battle of the Age for Democracy. “Nobody Home but the Voters and They Are all Gone for Wilson”. NEW YORK, Nov. 8.—At noon today the result of the election was still doubtful. It depended on the outcome in a dozen doubful states and from a number of states from which the results are coming in slowly. ■ The chair of both national committees claimed handsome - majorities in the electorial college for their candidates, but actual figures failed to make good the claim of either. . At 11 o’clock Democratic Chairman McCormick claimed that Wilson would have 288 electoral votes. % Wilson is leading in Kansas by more than 11,000 with half of the precincts in. He held Jfi 3 lead °f 900 in one-t^ird of the North Dakota precincts. He was nearly 10,000 ahead in one-fourth of the Minnesota voting districts. Delaware returns at 11 o’clock indicated that Hughes had carried that state by 800. He also led in Indiana by more than 10,000 majority, with less than 1,000 precincts out. Hughes had a lead in California with about 3,500 precincts out of 5,917 precincts missing. The states counted safely in the Huges column this morning were: Connecticut, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Michi- hnn, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Ver mont and Wisconsin. Arizona. Arkansas, Colorado, Kentucky, Maryland; Missouri, Montana, Nevada, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, Utah and south ern states are all for Wilson. Depends on Doubtful States NEW York, Nov. 8. — With both sides claiming victory de cisive result today depended on the vote in California, Delaware, Idaho, Indiana, Kantas, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Mexi co, Oregon, Washington, West Virginia and Wyoming. Reports from Montana and, Washington, said that indications were that Wilson would carry these states by 2,000. Wilson led in Kansas, Oregon, New Mexico, Wyoming, Minne sota, Idaho and California on latest returns this morning. A An old fashioned family re union was held at the country home of J. M. Barber, eight miles south of Bain bridge last Sunday, all of the members being present.
