And meters of tone,
But the best of all meters
Is to meet her alone.

AND THE BARROW TIMES
Tips year will bring unsettled
times, because of readjusting the
merchant princes need their dimes,
and they’ll be slow at trusting.
They’ll not give credit left and right
as lately they’ve been doing, and
frowns will greet the slow-pay
weight wlio'd buy a plug of chewing.
And many men this year, I guess,
will need a slice of credit, for read
justment brings distress—the bank
ing sharps have said it. Now he
who’s kept his stand—off bright will
know the easy sledding and mer
chant princes will delight to sell him
books or bedding. However strin
gent money is, the lamps for him
are burning; to see his good old hon
est phiz, the merchants all are yearn
ing. And if he asks to buy on time
a grindstone or a hammer, the leal
ers 'on his person climb, with glad,
exultant clamor. There’ll never be
a time so tight that men of reputa
tion for having always acted right,
can’t get accommodation. A repu
tation as good pay is better far than
rubies, and men who do not think
that way must travel with the boo
bies. The melancholy days are here
suspended “tick” will daunt them;
and bills they should have paid last
fall will rise like ghosts and haunt

LOVE, HONOR AND
BEHAVE AT STRAND
Both Married and Unmarried Will Get
Tickled. —Here for Two Days
Thursday and Friday.
A departure from Mack Sennet com
edy tradition is promised in the “Love
Honor and Behave” vehicle which will
be shown at The Strand Theater two
clays this week, Thursday and Friday.
Charlie Murray, hero of a inilion ep
isodes, will be introduced in a role of
legitimate appeal. He will imperson
ate a "grave and reverend” Judge of
the Supreme Court, playing the part
with dignity and power. This revolu
tionary role will be revealed in the
opening scenes of the story when Jus
tice* and Romance will come in contact,
Marie Prevost, a bride, and George
O’Hara, her young husband, appear be
fore “Judge” Murray, carrying to the
halls of justice the fragrance of a ro
mance about to die. Here, it is point
ed out, is a sincere and authentic pic
ture of dramatic material, treated in
a sympathetic and dignified manner,
with ever so slight a wink of tin* eye
on the part of the learned jurist. Not
long, however, does the plot remain in
the atmosphere of staid drama, for the
jurist, in order to convince the jealous
bride of the innocence of her bride
groom, tells a story of his own expe
rience when he too was a bridegroom;
the said story's purport being to dis
credit circumstantial- evidence.
It is this story that forms the bulk
of the episodes depicted in “Love, Hon
or and Behave”—episodes that bring
Murray to his traditional characteri
zations in hilarious fun and thrilling
predicaments. Murray’s story which
is seen on the screen but spoken to her,
convinces the piquant Marie of the in
justice of her suspicions and the in
tegrity of her husband's love. It in
cidentally bears a moral for tbe mar
ried and the unmarried, but mainly it
promotes mirth, unrestrained laughter
and genuine thrills.
