BIRTH OF A NATION
COMING NOV. 2ND
In bringing I). W. Griffeth’s "The
Birth of a Nation," to the Strand The
ater. for a limited engagement of one
day, next Wednesday, November 2, the
management takes pleasure in announc
ing that the famous spectacle will be
offered here exactly as when it scored
its initial triumphs.
The revival comes in the wake of its
great success in New York City where,
at the famous Capitol Theater which
seats over 5,000 people it ran for the
longest time a screen production was
ever booked in that house and to the
greatest receipts ever known for any
production in a Broadway theater for
a given week.
This record is the more astonishing
as 'The Birth” was revived last spring
at the time when four other screen
successes were in the very heighth of
their respective runs but none, not ex
cepting Griffethj|s masterpiece ’’Way
Down East” ever played a week in
New York to any such figures. It was
an unqualified success in every par
ticular and will be presented here as
It was on this occasion with stirring
original orchestra, the effective stage
setting, the most wonderful cast ever
assembled In a motion picture produc
tion and with every attention to detail
calculated to make it as appealing as
The story needs no retelling but
those memorable battle scenes, the
great plantation views, the dreamy life
of the old Southland, the romance and
heart interest gathering about its love
conflicts, the appearance of such
mighty figures of history as Lincoln,
Grant, Lee, and others of equal prom
inence who played their parts in writ
ing the most crucial period of American
history when the nation was being
welded into a mighty union can never
be forgotten or lose their marvelous
The gathering of the Ku Klux Klan.
Adventurers swarmed out of the north,
as much enemies of one race as the
other, to cozen, beguile, and use the
negro. The white men were roused
by a mere instinct of self-preservation
until at last there had sprung into ex
istence a great Ku Klux Klan, a verita
ble invisible empire of the south to pro
tect the Southern country.

Mrs. H. E. Haynie.
“Always Bright and Cheerful.”
Susan Prudence McDonald Haynie
was born March 3, 1887, and passed on
to the better land Juue 7, 1921.
She was united in marriage to 11. E.
Haynie the third Sunday in May 1907,
and during their 14 years of life to
gether, she was true and faithful to
every duty as wife and mother.
While still a young girl she united
with the Christian church, and true
to her religious convictions, she re
mained faithful until life's latest hour.
Besides a bereft husband, and three
children—two sons and a daughter—
Mrs. Haynie leaves a mother, two
brothers and three sisters, who feel
keenly the loss of an affectionate
daughter and beloved sister.
She was a constant sufferer for a
number of years, during which her
beautiful Christian character was il
lustrated in cheerful patieuce and trust
Her husband during all the years of
her continued illness remained true in
his devotion to her, and endeavored, as
far us possible, to relieve her intense
She was most affectionate and
thoughtful in her home life. Perhaps
no wife or mother ever loved husband
snd children more and during all of her
sickness she was constantly bestowing
her love and affections upon them. She
was indeed proud of her husband aud
children and had the fullest measurq
of their love and esteem.
She has preceded us, but we are re
minded that w£ too must travel the
same road; whether at some early date
or in the distant future; may we have
so lived that it may be said of us, as
it can be truly said of her, that she
was a noble, true, and consecrated
Christian; that the world is better on
account of her life; that she contribut
ed some to the sum total of human
goodness and made many happier.
We all loved her in life, and we shall
continue to cherish her sainted memo
ry, and trust that in the future we will
meet and live together again,
