WIEDMAN'S GARAGE, SALINE Firestone Tires and Accessories Theatrical Announcement of the Season is "A Daughter of the Gods." The most extraordinary theatrical announcement of the entire season is that William Fox's million dollar motion picture, "A Daughter of the Gods," featuring Annette Kellermann, will be presented at the Whitney- theatre, Ann. Arbor for four days, commencing Sunday night, January 14. The picture will be shown, twice daily, at 2:15 and 8:15 p. m. This wonderful production has created the biggest furore in the whole history of motion pictures. It was first shown to the public at the Lyriq Theatre, N&w York, early in October,-and immediately became the talis of the metropolis. This great picture is still running there, and has proved to be the greatest success New York has had in a score of years. After the picture won success in New York, Mr. Fox put it on in all of the big cities; and it is now repeating its New York triumph in Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, Boston, Pittsburgh, Washington and St. Louis. The picture has scored so heavily that it will undoubtedly run two years in New York, and a full year in the other cities. "A Daughter of the Gods'" was filmed on an island in the Carribean Sea, which was leased from the British government for that purpose, the actual cost of making the picture was $1,000,000', the total number of persons appear- in s* in the production, 22,000, and the largest number in a single scene, 19,000. Mr. Fox caused an entire city to be built, and then had it destroyed by fire. Annette Kellermann, known as the "most perfectly formed woman in the world," performs the most daring feats of her eventful career", in the various scenes. Miss Kellermann is the champion swimmer and diver of the world and she more than lives up to.her reputation in this film. It required eleven months of ceaseless work for the whole company to make the picture. A delightful musical score, composed by Robert Hood Bowers, will be interpreted by an augmented symphony orchestra of thirty master musicians. HAVE YOU PAID YOURS? MAKE SPLENDID GAINS Popular Young Couple Wed. One of the first weddings of the New Year took place on Thursday, January 4, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Luther Richardson, 404 South State street, when their daughter, Grace Elizabeth, was united in marriage to Prof. Arthur Metcalf, superintendent of schools at Saline, Mich. Miss Helen Martin of Boyne City sang "At Dawning" hy Cadman, after which a simple ring ceremony was read by Rev. F. O. Scurrah, pastor of Westminster church. The parlor was decorated with palms and narcissus and the bride was charmingly dressed in hunter's green and wore a corsage bouquet of violets. The mother of the bride wore a wisteria silk gown. After the ceremony a three course dinner was served in the dining room which was in keeping with the decorations of pink sweet peas. Mr. Metcalf stands well in his chosen vocation and is studying to get his Ph. D. at Columbia university. His bride will be missed here as she has" been a favorite in social and musical circles. They left on the afternoon train for their new home well showered with rice.—Big Rapids PioneerrHerald. Mr. and Mrs. Metcalf arrived home on Saturday and have been receiving the congratulations of their many friends. "Blessed be Nothing"' Feeling Abroad in the Land. While it is nice to feel one is very comfortably situated financially, and that the future has few if any terrors, i there Gomes a time, about twice a 1 year, when the feeling that "blessed be nothing" grips the pocketbook, If not the heart, and that is when we have to walk into the treasurer's office and put up our little ante for the upkeep of the various institutions, state, township and village. But when one contemplates all one gets for our modest stipends, even though the sta te may he run rather recklessly as to expenses; the feeling of security we may all enjoy In this great and glorious country, notwithstanding the noise made hy the war jingoists in our national capitol, we can pay our taxes and feel that we have really been getting something for our money.

If you had saved the statements that were printed about a year ago and, had them for comparison with the ones in this week's, paper, you would discern, that during the past twelve months deposits have increased more than $125,000, which, we take it, is a sizeable increase .for a community the size of Saline. Some of our readers may wonder why we print so many good items concerning banks and bankers during the year, when they seem to be doing so well. Well, "there's a reason." While this community is especially fortunate in the rank and file of its thrifty citizens, there's always a chance for improvement. We "are still very far behind the European countries when it comes to per capita bank deposits, and there is no other one thing so beneficial for the rising generation than object lessons in thrift. While we are no advocate of penuriousness, it is useless to deny that if all who should had substantial hank accounts they would be freer from worry and much more useful citizens. The habit of saving, even if not much, is a worthy one and should be adopted by all classes, rich and poor, old and young, male and female. Changes in Old Firm. The Friis & Minnett Milling company has been reorganized and will hereafter be known as the Friis Milling company.
