the best of the lot.

puts her toes into her eyes when she
dances, so it is difficult to tell which

Conspicuous among coldblooded
acts of cruelty committed by the

prominent. Official documents pub published

from Mons, ordered by German author

The American embassy at Berlin
promptly took up the burning question
of the deportations with the chancellor
and other representatives of the German-
government. In an interview
with the under secretary of state for
foreign affairs, Mr. Grew was handed
an official statement of the German
plans, which Is, in translation, as fol follows
lows follows :
German Camouflage. I
"Against the unemployed in Belgium,
'who are a burden to public charity,
In order to avoid friction arising there therefrom,
from, therefrom, compulsory measures are to be
adopted to make them work so far as
they are not voluntarily inclined to
work, in accordance with the regula
tion issued May 15, 1916, by tne gov
ernor general. In order to ascertain
such persons the assistance of the mu
nicipal authorities Is required for the
aismct or the governor general in
Brussels; while in the districts outside
of the general government, L e In the
provinces of Flanders, lists were de demanded

local relief committees containing the
names of persons receiving relief. For
the sake of establishing uniform pro
cedure the competent authorities have,
in the meantime; been instructed to
make the necessary investigations re
garding such persons also in Flanders
through the municipal, authorities;
furthermore, presidents of local relief
committees who may be detained vf or
having refused to furnish such islts
will be released."
Mr. Grew pointed out that the depor
tations were a breach of faith and
would Injure the German cause
abroad. In his official summary of the
negotatlons wnlch he carried on he
"I then discussed in detail with the

the policy might have on England's at
tltude towards relief work In Belgium.
I said I understood that the measures
had been promulgated solely by the
military' government In Belgium and
that I thought the matter ought at
least to be brought to the chancellor's
personal attention in the light of the
consequences which the new policy
would entail. Herr ZLmmermann inti intimated

could be revoked. He stated; how however,

would not disapprove of my seeing the
chancellor about the matter." :
Solemn Protest by United States.
The formal protest of the United
States was-as follows:
"The government of the United
Statejs has learned with the greatest
concern and regret of the policy of the
German government to deport from
Belgium a portion of the civilian popu population

to labor In Germany, and is constrained

Hons In their treatment, of hoBeomba-

ability be fajtal to the Belgian relief

would be generally deplored and
which, it Is assumed, would seriously
embarrass the German government.
This protest was followed by those
of the pope, the king of Spain, the
government ; of Switzerland and other
neutrals. They were of no avail, ex except,

thorities to draw a tighter veil ,over

evidence has in some measure come

At the Temple Today

Rex Beach's greatest novel, "The

Auction Block," will be seen at the

Temple today in motion pictures. It

is picturized under the direct super

vision of the author himself and re

leased through the Goldwyn Film Co.

Rubye De Remer, the beautiful

heroine, represents the aggregate

maidenhood of America, and the
temptations to which she is subjected

in the course of the photoplay are

supposed to cover all possible tempta

tions to which girls are subjected in
real life. Miss De Remer, who is a

'Denver girl, is described as "divinely

tall and, oh! most divinely fair. She

looks as though she were made of

peaches and corn silk and bits of blue
sky and pearls." When Rex Beach
saw her he asked her to play the lead
in the Auction Block because, he said,

she was the most beautiful girl he had

ever seen.

Miss Florence Johns has been called
Gaby Desly's double, and played in
the original company of the "Garden

of Allah," supporting Miss Viola Al

len. Miss Johns in today's 1 film is

"Adoree," a famous dancer.

The heroine is a small town girl.

She was so wondrously beautiful that

her parents took her to the city and

sold her to the highest bidder who,

of course, was a millionaire s son.

This great, gripping film is one of
the greatest screen successes, and the
first Goldwyn shown in Ocala. As
Rex Beach wrote and directed it, its

success is assured. The prices of ad admission
mission admission will be 10 and 20 cents. ;
