“THE RIVER’S END”
COMING TO STRAND
“The River’s End,”, by James Oliver
Curwood, will be shown at the Strand
Theater next Monday and Tuesday,
October 24 and 25. The book, “The Riv
er's End," has been read by thousands,
the eighth edition having been ordered,
it is a beautiful, and interesting story

John Keith peered out of the little
log hut at the snow waste that stretch
ed miles to the horizon, and hesitated.
For two long years he had seen nothing
but arctic snows, no one but Indians —in
that bitter chase in the frozen
Northland, relentlessly pursued by an
officer of the Royal Mounted, who had
sworn that he should hang for murder.
Now the chase was at an end; his
pursuer was dead of a frost-bitten lung,
and buried under the floor of the cabin,
where the wolves would not find him.
' And John Keith was clad in the dead
man’s eiothes, the uniformed officer of
the Royal Mounted.

as Conniston had been informc tl by his
own*people with whom he had quar

there, waiting for the brother she had
not seen since she was it child.
She flew straight to his arms, this
slip of a girl, and as she clung to him.
the fragrance of her hair made his
senses reel. It was the first woman’s
caress he had known in years, and
Keith, the man of iron, who had looked
death in the face and laughed, the man
wanted for murder, was shaken to his

he was playing unnerved him. He de
termined to tell her all and then quit
the world of civilization forever. But
as the hours passed and then the days
and weeks, Keith could not bring him

And this is the beginning of one of
the most interesting stories ever read.
