OUR "CUB" REPORTER
LOST HIS BEARINGS
Government Will  Not  Put  an
Inspector in Every Brewery
To Check All Output.
The statement In the report of the
Liberty League meeting in the last
issue of Die Islander that tlie government Intended placing an inspector In every brewery and that present
product of the breweries was greatly
In excess of tlie 2V. per cent, ultosved
by liiw, wns Incorrectly reported. Our
"cub" reporter evidently had become
somewhat exhilarated — or maybe
mentally "stimulated"—with the idea
Of soon being nblo to procure n drink
of his fnvorftn "medicine" when he
badly needed It. that he allowed his
imagination to run nwny and play
tricks with him. However, he has no
possible doubt that ail liberty-loving
men—and women--will cast In their
vote for "Government Control and Sale
in Sealed Packages" under strict and
proper supervision, nnd so do awny
with that atrocious thing called the
Prohibition Act—which does not, and
what's more nevejr will—prohibit, but
plays Into the hands of the "bootlegger" aud his kindred.
BASEBALL CLUB DANCE
ON THURSDAY NEXT
To wind up the season the Cumberland Junior Baseball Club ls holding
a big (lance In the Ilo-Ilo Dance Hall
on Thursday evening next. This
should be one of the best dances of
the season.
Tag Day Women's
Hospital Auxiliary
The above organization propose to
hold their Annual Tag Day on Saturday next. On that day the members
of the Auxiliary will stund at the
principal corners of Dunsmuir Avenue
and ask for contributions, great or
small. Collections will also be made
at Bevan and Union Bay.
For those who do not realize tlie
work of the Society, we beg to state
that tlie Hospital Auxiliary provides
most of the crockery and linen used
at the local hospital, which are all
procured In tlie town, und all funds
realized are spent here. With tlie ex.
eeptlon of tiie dues paid by the members of the society, which number
over 50, it depends entirely on volun
tary contributions for Its support. The
claims on its resources are very great,
the strong disinfectants used
quickly destroy sheets, etc.-, the quality of which are none too good since
the war.
It is hoped that a very generous response will he made by those who
feel the cause to be deserving, and
that those wbo do not feel called upon
to contribute will at least remember
that the collectors' task Is not an enviable one and only done from a sense
of charity, and accord them every
civility. Tlie results of the collections
will be published in The Islander.

Cumberland Win
By Good Margin
Inter-City   League   Champions
Go Down to Defeat Before
B. C. Champions
Cumberland journeyed to Nanaimo
on Sunday and engaged the Inter-City
champions In an Upper Island League
fixture. The B. C. champions made
several changes In tbelr team from the
previous game, Strang partnering
Campbell at buck, Smith being moved
to right half and Conti tilling the
centre half position, Home being In-
ide left nnd Boothman inside right.
Boothninn won the toss and took advantage of the wind. Nanaimo were
first to (ind Iheir feet on the slippery
pitch and kept Cumberland defense ou
edge for some time. Strong, kicking
by the backs, let Cumberland away
mid first Conti. and then Home, tested Routledge with long shots. A run.
by O'Brien und Robertson looked dangerous for Cumberland but Campbell
cleared. Cumberland again took up
the pressure, and Chester and Dickinson were a busy pair; from a centre
by Harrison, James got possession,
aud beating tbe backs, lie gave the
goalkeeper no chance to save.
Cumberland continued to hnve the
pull and Routledge was kept busy.
Colli I anil Jackson were playing a
strong game at half, never allowing
the Inter-City climapious' front line
to settle down. Boothman put James
In possession, and beating two men on
the run he registered goal No. 2 with
a shot of the unsavable nature. The
slippery ground seemed to suit James;
when in possession he was always
dangerous and was hard to dislodge
from the ball. This reverse seemed to
nettle Nanaimo, and their forwards
made strenuous efforts to reduce the
leeway. A cross from Pilling striking
Hie upright the ball rolled Into the
net, out of Clark's reach.
Cumberland again took the game lu
hand, James having hard luck with
a shot that bouced off the goalkeepers'
leg, Half-time was called with the B.
C. champions leading hy the odd goal,
a lead they well deserved, their play
being much superior and their front
rank combining better together.
Cumberland were the aggressors on
resuming, and In spite .of the wind
nnd rniii they hovered around Rout-
ledge's charge. James put the finishing touch to a shot from Wylle and
Ihe game on Ice for Cumberland. Content with their two-goal lead the
champions played a defensive game,
the Inside men falling back and assisting the halves.
Nanaimo had most of the play towards the finish, hut were seldom dangerous, Campbell and Strang taking
care of anything that came their way,
and Clark was seldom called upon to
handle n shot. On the other hand
Cumberland were often dangerous,
Harrison beating Chester repeatedly,

Wolves of the Night
You talk about oils and fata, sugars
ami starches, soups and meats, water
and salts as good food. Some school
children try to talk to you in more
modern terms about proteins, carbohydrates, minerals and calories, but
ami tqiifY and tell them "not to talk
back io try to correct their elders, but
to speak only when apoken to." Then
you promptly forget all about such
"new tangled, hifalutin stuff and non
sense," and tho college girl or boy
thus suppressed and soon graduated,
drifts back into tbe language of tbe
folks at home and soon ignores the
mushroom, classroom knowledge. Calories have ceased to bo anything in
his young life.
lie all this as it may, there are certain elemental substances in foods,
which your grandmothers .knew not of,
that must be recognized, understood
aud remembered tor all time and every
day. They are vital to human health
aud well being, hence their name
vilamines.
When your baby's heud sweats and
a little bald place occurs on the back
of its head from rubbing the pillow,
the old nurses and gossips, who have
"buried dozens of babies and know
more than any doctor," will tell you
"il Is nothing and is a sign of riches,
Known of Old.
But it is something and a sign only
of possible riches for doctors, drug
gistii and undertakers. That perspiry
spot means rickets, and rickets is a
nutritional disorder which appears
when there is a lock of vitamines in
the infant's food. If mother's milk is
uot complete in vitamines, it may have
albumen, fat, sugar, water, fertilisers
and a perfect caloray measurement.
but the baby will suffer and may waste
away even though '.'it is the picture of
health" otherwise.
Similarly, a lot of prize babies may
he fat, chubby and full of laughter,
yet be anaemic, rickety or with scur-
vey because vitamines are absent from
their food.
You can never be sure that you get
enough vitamines in your daily fare to
maintain your health against tlio first
onslaught of pneumonia, typhoid,
dysentry or some otber malady or microbe which is blamed for your long
suffering or deatli—a discredit which
should he lodged against lack of vita
mines in your victuals and drink.
Although the name vttamine. which
trips now so lightly from almost every
school child's lips, is new to many
older persons, it has been known for
several generations that the terribl
disease—scurvy, whicb broke out on
sailing vessels long out at sea—came
from too much salt pork, canned
beans and other foods none too fresh.
Arctic explorers told how scurvy decimated the ranks of the Eskimos.
Fresh orange juice and freshy leafy
vegetables cured them.
About eight years or so ago the
term vitamine was brought into use
by Prof. Funk as applicable to some
quality -or substances in fresh foods
which had the power to cure scurvy,
pellagra, obesity of a certain type,
beri-heri, rickets and neuritis of "one
kind.
Where It's Found.
Prof. McCallum of Johns Hopkins
School of Hygiene hy a series of brilliant experiments, proved that you can
eat all the meat, fish, sugar, fat and
mineral foods at the most expensive
hotels or in your own home, cooked
by the greatest chef, yet they would
ill he inadequate for normal health,
growth and development and even lay
you open to tho lirst breath of disease
if vitamines were not present. The
reason Jo\ys are usually iu better
ivorage health than some other races
is .perhaps due to Moses' discovery
that butter should be used and not
lard, ns cooking fat.
Vitamines are not dispensable a:
drugs, medicines, condiments or chem
icals, hut tliey are indispensable food
combination which cnu he served tn
the form of compressed yeast tablets.
Play safe and be sure thnt you and
your loved ones receive their fair
share of vitamines, besides oranges,
apples, butter, milk, cheese, cod oil
and otlier fresli pabulum. A number
of good physicians recommend those
who are obese, anemic, emotionally
deficient, emaciated, bloated, rundown or ill with signs of rickets,
scurvy, pellagra, fever or beri-heri, to
take tablets of yeast of the types very
much in vitamines.
If this is done, with tho power and
improvement which go with sunlight
aud an outdoor life, numerous discomforts blamed upon almost everything
but the right thing, will disappear as
the mist of the valley hefore the sunrise.

and James was no end of worry to
Dickenson.
Cumberland came within an ace of
adding to their score, Home Just missing a header by inches in the goal
mouth, and In his anxiety pulling the
ball down with his hand.
Time (was called with both teams
showing tlie effects of a hard and trying game. Cumberland well deserved
their win, Nanaimo being seldom dangerous after the first ten minutes.
Clark in goal had very little to do,
while Routledge was worked overtime,
but wus in no way to blame for his
team's defeat. Campbell and Strang
gave a great display at back, their
tackling and covering up being worth
watching. As a pair, they will be
hard to equal in B. C. Jackson and
Conti played a useful and interesting
game at half, Teddy being up against
the Inter-City champions' crack wing,
O'Brien and Robertson, but never
allowed them any rope, while Conti
had Filling's measure and attended to
him like a father to his boy. James
was probably the most brilliant player
on the field, his exhibition at centre
being away above the usual standard
seen In this province. Three goals in
oue game against a defense like the

FOOTBALL NOTES
At a meeting of the Upper Island
League Association held in Nanaimo
on September 25th, J. Wargo of Ladysmith was suspended from taking an
active part in football for the
malnder of the season, for striking thc
referee during the game between
Lndysmith and Nanaimo City. The
protest entered by Ladysmith In connection with the same game was disallowed.
Why did Strang shake the ball before placing lt for a goal kick during
the latter portion of the game? Was
It wet?
THE FRENCH-CANADIAN
HORSE ONE OF THE BEST
It takes more than rain to keep Nanaimo fans at home when Cumberland
are playing, and some ot them do love
Campbell!   Why?
Seek the favor of those to whom you
wish happiness, rather than of those
from whom you hope to gain an advantage.—La Bruyere.
The French-Canadian horse, which
ls comparatively little known outside
the province of Quebec, is claimed to
be one of the most durable and otherwise useful horses to he found any-
wehere ln Canada. In bulletin 95 of the
Experimental Farms, the author, Mr.
Gus Langcller, points out that this
breed is descended from the old-time
French-Canadian pony, sent from
France to Canada by Louis XIV.
These ponies were of the best that
could be procured in their native land.
They remained for three years the property of the king, and were then distributed among the farmers of Canada.
In order to encourage thc 'development
of agriculture.
Some few years ago thc pedigree
records of the French-Canadian horse,
maintained by the Quebec Government,
wore transferred to the National Live
Stock Records. Other steps have been
taken to maintain the breed as pure
as possible. One of thc latest
methods, as pointed out in Ihe bulletin, which can be obtained from tlie
Publications Branch of thc Department ot Agriculture, Ottawa, lias been
the establishment of a horse breeding
frnm nt St. Joachim, situated some
twenty-five miles oast of Quebec City.
This farm, wblcb is operated under the
Experimental Farms system, hns some
thirty well selected brood mares.
These, together with fifteen of similar
quality, kept on tlie Experimental
Station at Cap Rouge, Quebec, form a
collection from which it ls hoped to
produce a superior new foundation
stock for the breed.

New Freight Rates Will Mean
Sharp Advance In Foodstuffs
Manufacturers and Wholesalers Do Not View With Approval the
Advance of Forty Per Cent, in Freight Rates—"Will Bear
Very Heavily on the Cost of Living," Says One Manufacturer.
Discussing the new freight increase
with representative manufacturers,
aud with A. C. Pyke, secretary of the
Canadian Wholesale Grocers' Association, vigorous protest waB voiced
against the advance. The opinion generally shared is that the increase ls
Inopportune, at a time when people
are looking for a decline In prices.
The now freight rates, representing an
advance of thirty-live and forty per
cent., cannot help but mean higher
prices for foodstuffs.
"Th new freight increase will bear
very heavily on tho cost of living," remarked C. 11. Wieushall of the White
Swan Spices & Cereals Co., Ltd., to
the "Canadian Grocer" of Toronto. "It
will affect the cost of the raw material,
then of the manufactured article,
again to the wholesale trade, and in
turn to the retailer, and ultimately the
burden of the increase must be borne
by the consumer. There Is no justification for the increase at the present
time, when everyone Is looking for
for tho cost of living to come down
rather tban go higher. The individual
consumer should not be called upon to
bear tlie additional expenditure of
higher wages for railway employees.
It should be borne by tile country as a
whole."
Speaking for the wholesale grocers,
A. C. Pyke, the secretary, remarked
that tlie Wholesalers' Association had
already registered a strong protest
against the proposed increases. The
association had asked that the in-
increase be reckoned only on the
needs of the Canadian Pacific Railway,
and these, Mr. Pyke did not think,
were very great. He did not think
the advance would be as high as forty
per cent. "It must of course mean
higher prices for foodstuffs, and at all
the different sources where the increase applies, food values will be
very materially affected," Mr. Pyke
added. Further protest will undoubtedly be made against the new rates by
the wholesalers.
"The new freight rateB will mean
twenty-five cents per barrel more ln
the price of flour,"   stated   Gordon
Doddiugton, of the Western Canada
Flour Hills. "This advance will decrease tlie amount of the recent decline on all crop government standard
flour to 35 cents per barrel, instead of
sixty cents as announced recently. At
a time when everyone ls looking for
prices to decline, the new freight rate
increase seems very Inopportune."
ORIGIN OF THK BLANKET
We would consider It a hardship not
to have a soft woolly blanket under
which to snuggle on a cold winter
night. Yet there was a time when a
blanket was unknown, and we owe its
invention to poverty. Years ago a
man in England lost all his wealth
and became very poor, One cold winter night in 1340 he used a piece of
rough, unfinished cloth for a bed covering to keep himself worm. Evidently neither his poverty nor the cold
made him dull, for from this makeshift bed covering he invented the
blanket. The name of this man was
Thomas Blanket, aud the new kind of
bedding has been known under the
name of blanket ever since.
LITTLE DROPS OF WATER
It has been said that people are as
Ignorant of the size of the sea as they
are of matters dealing with astronomy.
Few persons are aware, for instance,
that the Pacific Ocean covers 68,000,-
000 miles; the Atlantic 30,000,000 miles
and tlie Indian Ocean, Arctic and
Antarctic 42,000,000 miles. To stow
away the contents of the Pacific Ocean
lt would be necessary to fill a tank
one mile long, one mile wide, and oue
mile deep, every day for 440 years.
The Pacific holds in weight 984,000,-
000,000,000,000,000 tons. The Atlantic
Oceau averages a depth of not quite
three miles. A tank to contain its
waters would have Bides 430 miles
long.

POLICE AND PROHIBITION
Sir Charles llibbert Tupper, iu replying to a correspondent who sought to argue that because the Mounted Police
successfully coped with illicit trade in whiskey on the
prairies in 1S74, similar effective svork could >e done in
British Columbia, says that the circumstances are entirely
different, The Provincial Police (second to none) have
signally tailed simply because a bare majority ot* voters
cannot make a law effective when the law offends the sense
ot those who respect the law of God. In the early days of
the construction of the C. P. K. drastic laws had some
force. The legislation referred to was temporary for
peculiar and exceptional conditions. With all such experience a lending Canadian statesman, Edward Blake—leader
of the Liberal Party—himself a total abstainer—hit the nail
on the head in lSSti at Ayimer wben he said: "I think no
repressive legislation can be prolitable or permanent unless
there exists a widely diffused and very strongly-felt and
very earnest public opinion at its back," and again, "more
than a majority of the people must be brought to tlie con
vlction that drink is a direct outrage and irredeemable
curse which ought to lie outlawed from among men1
(quoted from the Mail newspaper) and adding, "therefore
1 cannot honestly vote for prohibition now."
Our present amorphous botch called the Prohibition Act
is notoriously violated by an enormous number of men
who as citizens were always regarded as "good men and
true." It does seem to me that hysterical appeals by men
of the gospel wbo advocate drastic prohibition laws in
respect of this particular matter have lost faith lu the
power of the gospel and moral suasion.
There are now, I am glad to know, a large number of
ministers of the gospel who are content to follow the
teachings and example of our Saviour and who recognize
as lie did that gifts of God may be abused but should nol
therefore be prohibited.   The abuse only is condemned.
A WORLD COURT
Acceptance, amendment or rejection of-the plan for the
permanent court of arbitration will be part of the business
to come before the assembly oi the League of Nations
when it meets in November. The creation of this per
manent court of international justice is provided for by the
Covenant of the League of Nations.
If the plan that has been framed is accepted by tlie
League, the court will be formed at once and will at once
enter upon the functions.
In selecting the judges for this court, a panel will lie
submitted by llie existing court of arbitration at The
Hague. Small nations and large will lie represented In the
panel, but when the council and the assembly of the League
of Nations pick the judges they will select only llftecll, so
of course a number of nations will huve no direct repre
sentations ou the court. Nations having litigation liefore
the court may have representatives on the bench, but
majority will decide all cases.
The greatest difficulty experienced In drawing up the
plan for the permanent court was in reconciling the inter
ests of the small nations with the large. Elaborate provisions have been made so as to reassure small nations that
they may not fear the dominating influence of the large
ones.
The jurisdiction of this world court Is limited to four
classes of disputes, but its use is made compulsory within
these limits. This because if its Jurisdiction were based
on voluntary agreement to litigate before it, lawless governments would of course decline to submit their cases to
its decision. It is providod that ■ a government refuse to
appear before the court, when summoned, the case will be
heard aud the decision given full publicity, so that impartial nations may know where tlie right of tlie dispute lies.
The following classes of cases are to be dealt with: (1)
Interpretation of treaties; (2) applications of international
law or of custom and usage having the force of law; (3)
questions of fact alleged to involve violations of international law; (4) questions of reparation or redress where
international law has clearly been violated.
The court, it must be remembered, is a part of the
machinery of the League of Nations. Since every nation,
with the exception of the United States and two or three
like Mexico and Turkey, will be part of the League, holding out against it will be a position which the civilized
world never expected to see the United States occupy.

. no!" was
doubt in bitterness of soul, that from liis knowledge of
political conditions iu Newfoundland during the past two
or three years lie would consider it disastrous to the interests of tbat country if such an inquiry into the conduct
of some of his late advisers were held.
This remark was necessarily confidential, but tlie Prime
Minister did not seem to appreciate that governmental
principle and later, when speaking on a public platform
cited the Governor's words in support of a diatribe of his
own against his political opponents. Following the
amenities of Newfoundland politics his veracity was questioned and he followed up his speech with an affidavit giv
ing tlie Governor's words in greater detail. His Excellency
is therefore placed in a pretty predicament, although lie
has so far chosen to Ignore the matter. Since lie only
mentioned "some of liis late advisers" the demand is made
that he give names and separate the sheep from the goats.
Then the question is raised: why, If ho was convinced of
the sinister nature of some of these late advisers, did he
not invoke the Crown prerogative lo di-mlss them from
office? Newfoundlanders are sticklers for constitutional
points, and they carry the argument even further. For instance, a Cabinet (it Is argued), is one and indivisible, and
one Cabinet Minister is responsible for the acts of all ao
long as he remains a member of the ministry; ergo, all
members of tlie Lloyd-Cashlu Government are guilty of
conduct that would be disastrous to Newfoundland's reputation abroad If ventilated. And so the argument goes on
ad infinitum.
It would appear that His Excellency, who was obviously
actuated by a desire to end the carnival of political recrimination which has been in progress for some years, by
suggesting that the Prime Minister let bygones be bygones
has unintentionally got himself Inextricably mixed up in 8
partisan affray, and will be a storm centre until the next
political marc's nest is discovered.—Saturday Night.

uot counting waiting on our wives, that goes without my

ljeal trains, you know it.
We wait from crudle to the grave, it seems to be our
hoodo; 1 have to wait to get a shave, and it's a cinch that
you do. We have to wait for boat or train in fair or stormy
weather and with a blat of high disdain our nanny slips its
tether.
We have lo wait lo cross tbe street, to hasten Would be
tolly, and we've grown bullions on our feet from waiting
for the trolley. We wait for prices to decline, to catch the
elevator; we wait when we go forth to dine; we wait upon
the waller.
We wait to get a raise in pay, for weather fair and sunny,
and hopefully await some jay to pay us back some money.
We wait to bear the llnal score, we may as well be candid;
we stand in line to get ashore before the boat has landed.

of commentary on the latest political embrogllo In the
most ancient colony, which involves His Excellency the
Governor, Sir Charles Alexander Harris, K.C, M.G., and
his chief advisor, lion. Richard Squires. The Prime Minister Is, comparatively speaking, a new comer in office,
having defeated the Lloyd-Cashin regime at the polls some
months ago.
It appears that there wore demands in Hon. Mr. Squires'
political fold that the conduct of the members of tho preceding Government should be Investigated. When tlie
Governor was approached on the matter, he remarked, no

Enjoyment ceases to be complete when you feel it
is extravagant.
The certainty that a car conserves your money—that
its every feature renders you the utmost service, is the
most gratifying feeling about it.
That is why more people buy Chevrolets in preference to heavier types that are a burden on the pocket-
books
The experience of veteran motorists has proven that
the Chevrolet affords you all the feelings essential to
complete enjoyment.
Pride in its appearance and absolute confidence in its
dependability alone guarantee your peace of mind.
Yet in addition the Chevrolet offers every riding and
driving comfort and equipment convenience.
These things are to be enjoyed equally in a Chevrolet
as in other cars. But in the Chevrolet alone can you
enjoy them at such low cost.
That is the peculiar attraction of the Chevrolet—all
essential features other cars afford, but at lower cost.
Do not entertain any doubts on this score. Give us
an opportunity to show you how and why this is true.

'Luxury Tax Removed
from  Electric Heating
Appliances
You will be interested to know that the efforts of
manufacturers of Electric Heating Appliances and of
others interested, have been cnccessful in securing the
removal of the 10 per cent. Luxury Tax on nickle-
plated Electric Heating Appliances.
We quote herewith a recent letter from R. W. Bread-
ner, Commissioner of Taxation, to a manufacturer of
appliances: .
"In reply to your letter of the 15th inst., I may state
that the luxury tax applies to articles plated with gold
or silver adapted for household or office use. Nickle-
plated electric heating appliances are exempt."
Some of the more important arguments used were:
1st—In almost all communities of the Dominion ot
Canada it is actually more economical to iron, toast,
cook, etc., with electric appliances than by any other
method.
The proposed legislation, therefore, would be taxing
an economy rather than a luxury.
2nd—Appliances made from steel and iron require
a covering of something to protect them from the
action of rust.
Nickle is the best and most economical for this
purpose.

KILL THE LADY KILLERS
An exhibit of "lady killers," the kind
found in too many homes, is being put
on In different parts of the State of
Washington by the Washington State
College extension department and the
United States Department of Agriculture. The exhibition wherever the exhibit has been held has been iu the
hundreds, both men and women finding much of interest.
Among the "lady killers" are found
the washboard, the sad iron, tlie scrub
brush, the water pail, the short-
tiaudled dustpan, the axe, and a number of implements with which many
women are obliged to do their work.
To offset the "lady killers" was another exhibit of ways aud means of
lightening work iu the home. In this
were Included "kitchen Jitneys"—a
type of tea wagon—lceless refrlger-
ators, washing machines, plans for
simple water systems, tireless cookers,
fruit and vegetable dryers, oil stoves,
portable gas makers, and hydraulic
rams. Several manufacturers showed
light and power plants suitable for
farm homes at the same exhibit. Small
conveniences costing anywhere from
5c to 25c were also displayed. Getting
more conveniences for doing work into tiie home Is the aim of every home
demonstration agent. Last year,
Ihruugth their advice and by their aid,
thousands of labor-saving devices ami
conveniences were installed in country homes, thereby lessening the
housewife's work and increasing efficiency, comfort and enjoyment of lite.

If China receives a helping hand in
these, her days of unfoldment, and if
America and the nations of Europe
stand by her, she will grow to be one
of the greatest powers lu tlle world,
according to W. F. Cox, manager of
an importing firm in Hongkong and
Canton.
"China certainly Is In a way to be
one of the greatost.powers—a power
for good—in the world If she ls helped
by other nations lu power," said Mr.
Cox. "There are 400,000,000 people ln
China, the largest population of any
single country In the world. They are
just awakening to self-realization and
we owe them a duty. If lt Is performed we shall see the development
of a country of enormous resources,
peopled by men und women with the
highest sense of honor aud duty. If
we neglect our opportunities, China
will undoubtedly be subdued and overrun by more warlike people and her
great resources, which are-so necessary to the world, will be quite lost.
Her great philosophers aud scientists
are also needed in the advancement of
the powerful nations.
"From my point of view China even
now Is a better place to live lu than
any Occidental country, and a Chinaman is a much better friend than an
American, which is saying a good deal.
There is no one who has ever really
known a Chinaman of high rank and
gained his friendship but will attest
that in loyalty, unselfishness aud de-
dotion to the Ideals of friendship be is
surpassed by no man on earth. I
have lived among the Chinese for a
great many years, and have learned
to know them well and to regard many
of them as brothers. I would rather
trust my honor and my happiness to
the hands of some of the friends I have
gained in China than I would do to
any one I know In this country. That
is a strong statement, but lt Is absolutely true.
"The Chinese have many traducers,
and I want to take my Btaud against
tbem one and all. Because tbe customs of the Orient and those of the
Occident very widely, we condemn
what we do not understand. Chinese
customs are different, lt, ls true, but
thoy are lovely and logical.
For instance, In China, when two
of your acquaintances serthe day for
tlieir marriage, they do not at once invite you to the wedding, and thus unload upon you tbe necessity of giving
a present, which only too frequently is
extracted from you unwillingly. The
fact is simply given out as news to the
world ln general. If you have an
affection for young people and desire
to add to their happiness, of your own
volition, you send a gift, and then—
and not until then—you are Invited to
the marriage ceremony. It is a delicate and courteous distinction. This
Is only one of the many ways In whlcb
their conventions differ from ours,
wltb the advantage iu line feeling all
on their side."

DEADLY SPEED CRAZE
Some really startling figures have
been presented to the National Safety
Council of the United States, which ic
holding its annual session at Atlantic
City. They deal with the rapidly-
Increasing toll of human life, which,
accoi'dnlg to.General Secretary S. J.
Williams, is the price of the modern
speed craze. The "motor menace," as
he calls it, has become a problem demanding grave study by national and
State law-makers, aud by all organizations having to do with public welfare.
Official statistics for the current
year, according to the report of tbe
Executive of the Safety Council, show
that "three times as many people are
killed by automobiles as are killed ln
all the factories, mines, railroads and
other industries in America." During
the last four months one person was
killed by an automobile in the United
States every thirty-live minutes. In
lhat time the deaths from this cause
were over twenty-live per cent, greater
than during the similar period of the
previous year.
The report addB, for the purpose of
comparison, a British official statement dealing with tlie commercial development of the aeroplane. It shows
that over 75,000 persons were carried
upon aerial Journeys in Great Britain
last year with but one fatality.
According to the estimates prepared
for the Council the terrible death toll
from automobiles is due almost entirely to reckless driving and the craze
for speed. Ninety-seven per cent, of
the fatalities are described to these
two causes. But because the killings
have increased in au even greater proportion than have the number of uuto-
moblles in use the council believes tbe
situation should be given the immediate, consideration by thc automobile
makers of the country "unless they
expect soon to be confronted by a
great volume of hostile public opinion."
It must be clear that such a staggering death rate cannot continue without causing unusual action. Safety
legislation can be tightened and
strengthened, but legislation cannot
do everything. Thc great need is for
the development of a strong and elfec-
tlve sentiment among owners of automobiles themselves against the reckless driver and the speed fiend.—Toronto Globe.

Prohibition In America has its tragic
and its comic side. On the tragic side
are to be reckoned the increasing
power of fanaticism and bigotry, the
wholesale poisoning by deadly substitutes for decent drink, the annihilation of simple comfort, the creation of
a new army of criminals, the infusion
into society of a horde of detestable
spies and informers, and the extinction of the very principles of personal
liberty.
But the Prohibition regime Is not
without its lighter, and even Its ludicrous, aspects. Not the least of them
is the desperate efl'ort made In the
first-class American hotels to maintain the semblance of convivial drinking.
An elaborate dinner lists presents
fifty kinds of drinks—apple champagne, raspberry hock, daudelton
cocktails, and such abominations.
Nothing is more ludricous than to see
a fashionably dressed supper-party In
New York, with a deferential waiter
beside them, gravely debating as between California grape juice and
thimbleberry port.
When the grape juice is finally selected it is carried in by two waiters,
lying ou its side In a little wicker
las!":'., held up to tlie light for verl-
ficatlon, uncorked with profound care,
;*.i"! presented first to the host, so that
he may be duly satisfied of the vintage
and the bouquet.
Mess of this sort is actually sold at
two dollars a pint. It Is bought by
people v ho continue with pathetic insistence to hope that if they drink
enough of it it may at last go to their
heads.
Another giddy concoction is the aw
ful stuff called Temperance Beer. It
is bottled and labelled and corked and
wired as if—poor thing!—lt might
really burst itself out of its prison
through tlie mad strength of lt. Alas!
when it in let loose it gurgles feebly
into the glass and lies there dead!
If a skilled chemist were to analyze
this maddening beverage he would find
it to contain one-half of one per cent,
of spirits. It is estimated that if
person wore to drink four buckets of
Ihis lie would feel—among other sensations—a certain exhilaration. Yet
such is the fond regret of suffering
humanity Hint millions of gallons of
this unspeakable slush are being sold
in the United States and In "dry" Can
ada every day.
lt Is carried on the cars, sewed on
the steamers, sold at the seaside, supplied in the mountains and advertised
in huge lettering over about six million square miles of territory.
Before the coming of Prohibition
not a single pint of it could have been
sold among a hundred million people.
Even now it is not thought good form
to drink more than twenty glasses ofl
it in all evening.
Prohibition Banquets.
Equally ludicrous to the verge of
pathos are the Prohibition "banquets,"
which replace In the United States and
in "dry" Canada Hie celebrations that
are no more.
Let the reader Imagine himself at a
banquet in the gay Province of On
tnrio. It is well to take our example
from the Province of Ontario Inasmuch as many people in England
quite wrongly asosciate Prohibition
exclusively with the United States,
If there Is any State in the United
States where the temper of the governing minority is more fanatical,
where hypocrisy is rifer, where liberty
is more suppressed, where the name of
religion is more freely invoked to
cover the sins of the tyrant and tlle
informer, than is tbe case ill Ontario,
that State is in a bad way Indeed.
Let us take, then, Ontario for the
scene of our illustration of what a
"temperance" banquet Is like.
The toastmaster rises with a glass
of lemonade in liis hand—merry fellow!—and proposes tbe health of the
King! There is a tremendous popping
of ginger-beer corks, a running to and
fro of waiters with foaming bottles of
pop and sarsaparilia. Then all rise
and with due solemnity vociferate
"Tbe King!" and splash thc foaming
pop down tlieir eager throats.
The chairman then reminds the
guests that they have with them Mr.
Stodge, a member of tlie Prohibition
Cabinet of Ontario. Ho will ask Mr.
Stodge to address them. Mr. Stodge
rises. Ho bus besldo hlm a great
bundle of notes and blue books. He
speaks for an hour.
The question of dandelion wine, he
says, Is receiving their most earnest
consideration. It is proposed to introduce in Ihe forthcoming session an
amendment to the Dandelion Wine
Prohibition Act of last year, which will
lie based upon the recent Spruce Beer
Annihilation Act.   (Applause.)
At the end of this speech the chairman rises and says, "Now, gentlemen,
if you please, refill your glasses; wo
will listen to the Ilcv. A. Whine, who
will propose the toast of 'Home and
Mother.'"
is the man who has the chief credit
lor having stopped the children of Ontario from sleighriding on Sundays, is
reeted with terrific applause.
He is glad to say that the Courts of
the Province have fully sustained the
action of the police iu stopping tbe
practice of tobogganing for boyB and
girls on Sunday afternoon. He looks
forward confidently to the time when
every child, under penalty of the law,*
will be forced to spend Sunday afternoon in a Sunday School: either there
or the jail—he does not care which.
9
Pointing Moral for England.
He deplores the fact that in the lost
Province of Quebec children are actually allowed to play games ln the
public parks on the Sabbath.
This speaker- is folowed by a light
talk from a leading statesman, three-
quarters of an hour, on railroad sta
tistics, and by an hour's chat on the
nationalization of the hog-packing Indus! ry. At the end of which tho chair
man invites ail present to rise and
sing "God Save the King"!
And If any reader of the Sunday Pic
torial should doubt the accuracy of thc
above account, let hlm read in the
public press of the Dominion of Canada the account of the suppression
under the law of Ontario, of the children's tobogganing on Sunday in the
parks and playgrounds of the City of
Ottawa.
But the comedies of Prohibition in
America should serve only to point all
the more strongly the moral for the
people of England.
The morning papers of the day on
which I write announce that "three
great Canadians" have left to assist
Scotland "in her Prohibition campaign." Great indeed they must be,
though I have never heard their
names before, since they are labelled
"fleld secretarls" of the tiling called
the Dominion Alliance.
If the people of Britain feel a sort
of moral wave sweeping over them
about this time, It will mean that the
"fleld secretaries" have lit.
Let me say on behalf of all the
decent people in Canada that If these
"Held secretaries" make a hit In Bri
tain we shall be only too glad to have
them stay there forever.
PORTSMOUTH HAS
REAL GHOST SCARE
PORTSMOUTH.—A ghost scare has
just thrilled the dockyards of Ports
mouth, where hundreds of men and
women passed the whole of a night
recently watching "a woman dressed
ill white, with gently swaying body,
standing beside an open window of a
house that had long been deserted."
The ghost was flrst seen by children
playing in the street in the evening.
They ran from Hie place screaming
and soon a large crowd of men and
women gathered and saw the Bpectre.
Bricks were thrown at the apparition
but still the swaying body remained
beside the window, continuing always
its mournful see-saw. Its invulnerability convinced the crowd that they
were really looking at something
supernatural, but examination of the
room the next morning revealed that
the ghost was only a strip of hanging
wallpaper, upon which the rays ot a
street lamp fell.
FIRE DANGERS OF
ELECTRIC IRONS
Legislation Should Require Safety Attachments on Electrically Heated Appliances.
An electric iron left turned on
Two stores and a cottage completely
destroyed.—Winnipeg Free Press.
Electrical appliances In the home
are of great convenience, but they are,
it the same time, a fire danger.
Familiarity with tlieir use breeds carelessness, which has resulted In heavy
fire losses. From reports received by
fire marshals, these are rapidly increasing.
From tests It has beon found that
lire will break out In from 15 to 90
minutes when the electric Iron Is left
In circuit on a table or ironing board,
the time Intervening depending upon
the surface material.
Many devices have been invented
to make electric irons lire-safe. Unfortunately, however, price has been
a ruling factor in the sale of this convenience, with the result that cheapness necessarily eliminates the safety
attachments. In the absence of public regulation requiring their use,
there is little hope of their general
adoption. Until the enforcement of
legislation requiring fire-safe attachments on all electrically-heated appliances, freedom from flreB due to
this cause must, therefore, depend
upon educating the public to a recognition of the danger.

"EVERYWOMAN" HAS

Beautiful   Women   Disport ■ at
Monster Banquet Board—,
One of Screen's Best.
The news., that Walter Browne's
morality play, "Everywoman," hud
been made into a motion picture was
no surprise to those acquainted with
this dramatic masterpiece. Its striking story and manifold opportunities
for spectacular scenic effects makes lt
admirable screen material. Tlle basts
for a magnificent cinema speetacle
was there. It remained for the directing skill of George H. Melford, the
acting ability of au unusually excellent cast, and line artistry In arranging the elaborate scenic effects to
transform "Everywoman" Into the
beautiful photoplay that ls being
shown at the Ilo-Ilo Theatre this afternoon and evening.
Here Is a dramatic production thut
Is manifestly even better suited to the
screen than It is to Hie stage. It requires au expansiveness that the
cramped quarters of the largest stage
will not admit. Quite probably the
screen version of "Everywoman" has
realized more perfectly the author's
conception of his story than have all
tbe productions of the play since its
famous premier In New York In 1911.
East" and "Under Cover."
As is quite well known, "Every-
woman" Is In the main allegorical in
character, The story opens much as
a drama of ordinary life. A beautiful
girl at a bazaar is wooed by a millionaire, an actor, and a poor physician.
She Is also beselged by the offer ot a
stage manager to embrace a dramatic
career. Thereupon the story becomes a transcript of the journey of
Life. The heroine becomes Everywoman, the millionaire is Wealth, the
actor Passion, and the other characters bear similar names. Everywoman
Is urged to go upon the Stage of Life
by Flattery to seek King Love. Her
long Journey leads her through many
pitfalls, past the temptations of
Wealth and Passion, until finally Bhe
reaches the humble hut of Love.
Scenes of lavish splendor form the
setting for the story. The revels ln
the magnificent palace ot Wealth,
where scores of beautiful women dispart of which encircles a swimming
pool and the other a dance hall, and
the episodes In the great gaming hall
are among the most elaborate ever
screened. The bazaar at the opening
of the story Is virtually a great fashion show. Women arrayed like birds
move through the picture like extraordinarily clad mannequins exhibiting
the latest creations of fashion.
In the midst of tills pleasing pageantry, however, the character of the
story has not been lost sight of tor a
moment. It Is convincingly and logically developed as the simplest drama.
The players do not merely walk
through their parts, as Is sometimes
the case in spectacular Alms of this
sort. The settings are extravagant,
but the Btory Is the thing, and everything has been fittingly subordinated
to this great moving drama of life
itself.
action Immediately, so they cut cards
to determine who shall marry the
leader of the prohibition forces. Billy
draws thc higli card and calls on Mrs.
Bittlnger. She shows bim the family
album containing pictures of her four
former husbands, and as she becomes
too affectionate, Billy beats a hasty retreat. Then tbe boys turn the saloon
into a soda parlor, using a number of
pretty city girls as waitresses. This
riles the white-ribbon women because
their husbands, who were never allowed to frequent the place while it
was a saloon, now flock there In
droves. There Ben saves the lives of
many workers by bis medical attention and redeems himself in the eyes
of Hope.
Jordan, the "prohibitionist," has
turned Martha's head—they are riding
in the country nearby when Martha
Hnds a bottle of liquor in his coat.
Jordan loses his temper and in the
struggle Martha (alls into tho swlfi
mountain stream which carries her
away. Jordan shows his character by
slinking off, but Billy, who has been
watching them, rescues Martha and
takes her home.
This ls a gripping story throughout,
with a big, human theme, and au appealing love story.

a violinist, vows to eschew the society
of women henceforth. Dr. Henry Forsyth, who ls constitutionally a hater
of women, has undertaken to guide his

But It hapuens tbat the telephone at

certain women for the purpose of getting into communication with these

calls, they decide to seek solitude In

the vagaries and shocking inconsistencies of womankind.
Meanwhile, Sylvia Wilson is being
arrayed for her wedding to a man Bhe

CHARMING ROMANCE
Mae Murray Bathes in Wash Tub
Mae Murray takes a bath In a stationary wusli tub and otherwise cavorts In "Thc A B 0" of love," which
conies to the llo-llo on Wednesday.
This Is her newest picture, and, Incidentally, ono particularly suited to tlie
talents and personality of the charming maid of many moods.
The A B C of Love" being a romantic comedy-drama, the story does
not end at desertion—no, indeed!
When hubby learns his Inamorata Is
only playing him for a part In his next
play he hot-foots it P. D. Q. to the
wife who has Just learned her ABC.
.The settings, both Interior and exterior are highly artistic and beautifully lighted. Miss Murray wears a
number of gowns designed to please
the feminine—and masculine—eyes,
and Dorothy Green, In the role of the
actress with siren charms, displays
some bizarre costumes.
Mae Murray portrays a ragged little
country girl whose sole possession ts
au old mare nearlng Its last days. A
wisp of a creature left to the charity
of a none too charitable world, she is
finally left In the care of Harry Bryant, a young playwright.
The child's Ignorance Is appalling-
she can't even read or write, but her
Innocence is as refreshing as apple
blossoms, and, one day Harry, without
looking forward to that not far distant
day when he will have to take her to
the city and compare her crudenesB
and Ignorance with his social world,
thinks only of his love for her Innocence of life, and marries her.
All's well until he Is back in town
and Diana, Nelson, an actress worldly
wise and conscienceless, exerts her
wiles anew. Harry does not know
that Diana, loving only herself, Is
playing him for a part ln his next play,
but this he learns before it Ib too late,
and a reconciliation takes place.

—and finds relief at the bar. Billy Is
devoted to Hope Beecher (Irene Rich)
Hie daughter of one of the sterling
pioneers. Hope considers Billy more
as a pal, and ls greatly interested in
Ben Morgan (Wade Boteler), the town
doctor who had let demon rum get the
best of him.
Hope's sister, Martha, comes home

jealousy and tears. But Christopher
Muds himself at last aud the love ro
mance of Sylvia and himself culminates happily for both.

years, then recovers to find fortune
stolen, and wife remarried, he's in
hard luck. But this man has red
blood, courage and two hard lists. See
how he deals with foes.
William Farnum, the famous star
of William Fox photoplays, will be
seen at the Ilo-Ilo Theatre on Satur
day next, October 9, ln his latest de
luxe production, "Wolves of the
Night," said to be the most powerfully
dramatic picture ln which this great
screen star has been seen.
The story ls of a mining engineer
who, having sought In vain for copper
ore In his land in the Northwest, has
converted It Into a sheep ranch. Adjoining Is a mining plant in full operation, owned by three men who covet
his property.
The hero, Bruce Andrews, portrayed
by Mr. Farnum, is sent to Chile to In
vestigate some mines. While there
he Is imprisoned ln a mine through an
explosion, and news is conveyed to his
wife that he has been killed. He escapes after days, but ls crazed by his
sufferings.
No more breathless and exciting
moments have been experienced in
motion picture plays than the Imprisonment of the hero, his subsequent
escape and his terrific fight with three
conspirators who have wrested his
fortune from him during his absence
in a foreign country.
He returns home several years later
lo find his wife married to the man
responsible for his mishap.
Wolves of the Night" Is a real
Farnum picture, which means a picture rich In romance and stirring action. The scenic effects are very
striking and the photography beautiful. This picture will be shown at tlie
matinee next Saturday and at both
shows in the evening.

•rohibition in America has its tragic
and its comic side. On the tragic side
are to he reckoned the increasing
power of fanaticism and bigotry, the
wholesale poisoning by deadly substitutes for decent drink, the annihilation of simple comfort, the creation of
a new army of criminals, the infusion
into society of a horde of detestable
spies and informers, and the extinction of the very principles of personal
liberty.
But the Prohibition regime is not
without its lighter, and even its ludicrous, aspects. Not the least of them
is the desperate effort made lu the
first-class American hotels to maintain the semblance of convivial drinking.
An elaborate dinner lists presents
Ilfty kinds of drinks—apple champagne, raspberry hock, dandelion
cocktails, aud such ubomlnatlons.
Nothing is more iudricous than to see
a fashionably dressed supper-party In
New York, with a deferential waiter
beside them, gravely debating as between California grape juice and
tlilmbleberry port.
When the grape juice is dually selected it ls carried lu by two waiters,
lying on its side in a little wicker
tastet, held up to the light for veri-
llcatlon, uncorked with profound care,
and presented first to the host, so that
he may be duly satisfied of the vintage
and the bouquet.
Mess of this sort is actually sold at
two dollars a pint. It is bought by
people v. !)o continue with pathetic insistence to hope that if they drink
enough of lt it may at last go to their
heads.
Another giddy concoction is the awful stuff called Temperance Beer. It
Is bottled and labelled and corked and
wired as if—poor thing!—it might
really burst itself out of its prison
through the mad strength of It. Alas!
when it is let loose It gurgles feebly
into the glass and lies there dead!
If a skilled chemist were to analyze
this maddening beverage lie would find
It to contain une-half of one per cent,
of spirits. It i3 estimated that If a
person were to drink four buckets of
this lie would feel—among otlier sensations—n certain exhilaration. Yet
such is tlie fond regret of suffering
humanity that millions of gallons of
this unspeakable slush are being sold
In the United States and In "dry" Canada every day.
lt is carried on the cars, served on
tho steamers, sold at tlle seaside, supplied in tlie mountains and advertised
in huge lettering over about six million square miles of territory.
Before the coming of Prohibition
not a single pint of it could have been
sold among a hundred million people.
Even now it is not thought good form
to drink more than twenty glasses ofl
it in an evening,
Prohibition Banquets.
Equally ludicrous to the verge of
pathos are tlle Prohibition "banquets,"
which replace in the United States and
ill "dry" Canada the celebrations that
are no more.
Let the reader imagine himself at a
banquet in tlie gay Province of Ontario. It is well to take our example
from tlie Province of Ontario inasmuch as many people ln England
quite wrongly asosciate Prohibition
exclusively with the United States.
If there Is any State ln the United
States where the temper of the governing minority is more fanatical,
where hypocrisy is rifer, where liberty
is more suppressed, where the name of
religion is moro freely invoked to
cover the sins of the tyrant and the
informer, than is the case in Ontario,
that State is in a bad way Indeed.
Let us take, then, Ontario for the
scene of our illustration of what a
'temperance" banquet Is like.
The tnastmaster rises with a glass
of lemonade iu his hand—merry fellow!—and proposes the health of the
King! There is a tremendous popping
of ginger-beer corks, a running to and
fro of waiters with foaming bottles of
pop and sarsaparilla. Then all rise
and with due solemnity vociferate
"The King!" and splash the foaming
pop down their eager throats.
The chairman then reminds thc
guests that tliey have with them Mr.
Stodge, a member ol* the Prohibition
Cabinet of Ontario, He will ask Mr.
Stodge to address tlierrt. Mr. Stodge
rises. He hus beside him a great
bundle of notes and blue books. He
speaks for an hour.
The question of dandelion wine, he
says, Is receiving their most earnest
consideration. It is proposed to Introduce In the forthcoming session an
amendment to the Dandelion Wino
Prohibition Act ol lust year, which will
be based upon the recent Spruce Beer
Annihilation Act.   (Applause.)
At the end of this spcecli thc chairman rises and snys, "Now, gentlemen,
If you please, refill your glasses; wo
will listen to the Rev. A. Whine, who
will propose the toast of 'Home and
Mother.'"
The Hev. Whine, being kuown to all
tlie man who has the chief credit
for having stopped the children of Ontario from sleighriding on Sundays, ls
;reeted with terrific applause.
He is glad to say that the Courts of
the Province have fully sustained the
action of the police In stopping the
practice of tobogganing for boys and
girls on Sunday afternoon. He looks
forward confidently to the time when
every child, under penalty of the law,'
will be forced to Bpend Sunday afternoon in a Sunday School: either there
or the jail—lie does not care which.
9
Pointing Moral for Kiutliind.
He deplores the fact that ln the lost
Province of Quebec children are actually allowed to play games In the
public parks on the Sabbath.
This speaker Is folowed by a light
talk from a leading statesman, three-
quarters of an hour, ou railroad statistics, and by an hour's chat on the
nationalization of the hog-packing industry. At the end of which the chairman invites all present to rise and
sing "God Save tlie King"!
And if any reader of the Sunday Pictorial should doubt the accuracy of the
above account, let him read In the
public press of the Dominion of Can
ada the account of the suppression,
under the law of Ontario, of the chil
dren's tobogganing on Sunday in the
parks and playgrounds of the City of
Ottawa.
But the comedies of Prohibition in
America should serve only to point all
the more strongly the moral for the
people of England.
The morning papers of the day ou
which I write announce that "three
great Canadians" have left to assist
Scotland "ln her Prohibition campaign." Great indeed they must be,
though I have never heard their
names before, since they are labelled
"field secretaris" of the thing called
the Dominion Alliance,
If the people of Britain feel a sort
of moral wave sweeping over them
about this time, it will mean that the
"fleld secretaries" have lit.
Let me say on behalf of all the
decent people in Canada that If these
"field secretaries" make a hit In Britain we shall be only too glad to have
them stay there forever.

PORTSMOUTH HAS
REAL GHOST SCARE
PORTSMOUTH.—A ghost scare has
just thrilled the dockyards of Portsmouth, where hundreds of men and
women passed the whole of a night
recently watching "a woman dressed
in white, with gently swaying body,
standing beside an open window of a
house that had long been deserted."
The ghost was first seen by children
playing in the street in the evening.
They ran from the place screaming
and soon a large crowd of men and
women gathered nnd saw the spectre.
Bricks were thrown at the apparition
but still the swaying body remained
beside the window, continuing always
its mournful see-saw. Its invulnerability convinced the crowd that they
were really looking at something
supernatural, but examination of the
room the next morning revealed that
the ghost was only a strip of hanging
wallpaper, upon which the rays of a
street lamp fell.
FIRE DANGERS OF
ELECTRIC IRONS
Legislation Should Require Safety Attachments on Electrically Heated Appliances.
An electric iron left turned on . .
Two stores and a cottage completely
destroyed.—Winnipeg Free Press.
Electrical appliances in the home
are of great convenience, but they are,
at the same time, a fire danger.
Familiarity witli their use breeds care
lessness, which has resulted in heavy
fire losses. From reports received by
fire marshals, these are rapidly Increasing.
From tests it has been found that
lire will break out In from IB to 90
minutes when tlie electric iron Is left
in circuit on a table or Ironing board,
the time intervening depending upon
the surface material.
Many devices have been invented
to make electric Irons lire-safe. Unfortunately, however, price has been
a ruling factor In the sale of this convenience, with the result that cheapness necessarily eliminates the safety
attachments, In tlle absence of public regulation requiring their use,
(here Is little hope of their general
adoption. Until the enforcement of
legislation requiring fire-safe attachments on all electrically-heated appliances, freedom from fires due to
this cause must, therefore, depend
upon educating the public to a recognition of the danger.

"EVERYWOMAN" HAS
LAVISH SETTINGS
Beautiful   Women   Disport ■ at
Monster Banquet Board—
One of Screen's Best.
The news., that Walter Browne's
morality play, "Everywoman," had
been made into a motion picture was
no surprise to those acquainted with
tills dramatic masterpiece. Its striking story and manifold opportunities
for spectacular scenic effects makes il
admirable screen material. The basis
for a magnificent cinema speetacle
was there. It remained for the directing skill of Georgo H. Melford, the
acting ability of an unusually excellent cast, and fine artistry in arranging the elaborate scenic effects to
transform "Everywoman" Into the
beautiful photoplay that Is being
shown at the Ilo-Ilo Theatre this afternoon and evening.
Here is a dramatic production that
is manifestly even better suited to the
screen than it is to the stage. It requires an expausiveness that the
cramped quarters of the largest stage
will not admit. Quite probably the
screen version of "Everywomau" has
realized more perfectly the author's
conception ot his story than have all
the productions ot the play since its
famous premier in New York in 1911.
East" and "Under Cover."
As is quite well known, "Everywoman" is in the main allegorical in
character. The story opens much as
a drama of ordinary life. A beautiful
girl at a bazaar is wooed by a millionaire, an actor, and a poor physician.
She is also beselged by the offer of a
stage manager to embrace a dramatic
career. Thereupon the story becomes a transcript of the journey of
Life. The heroine becomes Everywoman, the millionaire Is Wealth, the
actor Passion, and the other characters bear similar names. Everywoman
ls urged to go upon the Stage ot Life
by Flattery to seek King Love. Her
long Journey leads her through many
pitfalls, past the temptations of
Wealth and Passion, until finally she
reaches the humble hut of Love.
Scenes of lavish splendor form the
setting for the story. The revels in
the magnificent palace of Wealth,
where scores of beautiful women dispart of which encircles a swimming
pool and the other a dance hall, and
the episodes In the great gaming hall
are among the most elaborate ever
screened. The bazaar at the opening
of the story is virtually a great fashion show. Women arrayed like birds
move through the picture like extraordinarily clad mannequins exhibiting
the latest creations of fashion.
In the midst of this pleasing pageantry, however, the character of the
story has not been lost sight of for a
moment. It is convincingly and logically developed as the simplest drama.
The players do not merely walk
through their parts, as is sometimes
the case in spectacular films of this
sort. The settings are extravagant,
but the story is the thing, and every
thing has been fittingly subordinated
to this great moving drama of life
itself.

action immediately, so they cut cards
to determine who shall marry the
leader of the prohibition forces. Billy
draws the high card and calls on Mrs.
Bittinger, She shows him the family
album containing pictures of her four
former husbands, and as she becomes
too affectionate, Billy beats a hasty retreat. Then the boys turn the saloon
into a soda parlor, using a number of
pretty city girls as waitresses. This
riles the white-ribbon women because
their husbands, who were never allowed to frequent the place while it
was a saloon, now flock there in
droves. There Ben saves the lives of
many workers by his medical attention and redeems himself in the eyes
of Hope.
Jordan, the "prohibitionist," has

Jordan loses his temper and in the
struggle Martha falls into tho swifi

away. Jordan shows liis character by
slinking off, but Billy, who has been
watching them, rescues Martha and
takes her home.
This is a gripping story throughout,
with a big, human theme, and an appealing love story.

Three Professed Woman Haters
Brought to Reason by a
Lovely Girl.
Will   Rogers   Will   Make   You
Laugh Till It Hurls in This
Goldwyn Picture.
"Water, Water Everywhere—" Is|
not only dry humor but the title of
Will Rogers' latest Goldwyn picture
which will be shown at the Ilo-Ilo
Theatre on Monday evening, lt is a
wholesome story of a self-sacrificing,
big-hearted, lovable cowboy who foregoes his love for a girl in order that
she may marry the man she loves.
This photoplay is the plcturlzatlon
of William R. Llghton's "Billy Fortune" Beries—Will Rogers portraying
the part of Billy Fortune. The scene
is laid in a small western town. Billy
comes to town to have his teeth fixed
—and finds relief at the bar. Billy Is
devoted to Hope Beecher (Irene Rich),
the daughter of one of the sterling
pioneers. Hope considers Billy more

Ben Morgan (Wade Boteler), the town
doctor who had let demon rum get the
best of him.
Hope's sister, Martha, comes home
from college and at the same time
Lyman Jennings Jordan, a hypocritical prohibition worker, arrives In
town, having been summoned by the
Women's Club, irfeaded by Fay Bittinger.
The women of the place have decided that John Barleycorn  and his
Pursued by a married woman,
Christopher Kent, a lawyer, becomes
a woman hater. Jilted by a woman
he loved devotedly, Julius Vanueman,
a violinist, vows to eschew the society
of women henceforth. Dr. Henry Forsyth, who ls constitutionally a hater
of women, has undertaken to guide his
friends along paths not frequented by
women, and the three men spend most
o their time moping at their club.
But It hapuens tbat the telephone at
the club is frequently employed by
certain women for the purpose of getting into communication with these
bears, and after they had been disturbed several times by telephone
calls, they decide to seek solitude in
the country. They rent a country
home belonging to Sylvia Weston's
father and meditate in seclusion upon
the vagaries and shocking inconsistencies of womankind.
Meanwhile, Sylvia Wilson is being
arrayed for her wedding to a man she
cannot countenance. At the palatial
country home where the nuptials are
to be celebrated, many guests have
gathered. Sylvia creates a diversion
wheu the ceremony begins by fleeing
incontinently and hiding In the woods,
whence she makes her way to her
father's home where the three men are
domiciled. Her wedding finery is in a
sorry state wheu she gets there, and
being quite hungry she eats the food
placed on the table for the consumption of the three women haters. She
dines sumptuously and wrapping her
wedding gown about her, she lies
down On a couch and falls asleep.
When the three men return to tlieir
dwelling, they are amazed to find the
sleeping Sylvia. Shocking discovery
for these scorners of feminity! When
she awakes, her beauty disturbs all of
them, and they are plainly in a quandary. They cannot throw her out and
they are reiuuctantly compelled to
permit her to spend the llight in the
house. In the morning, Sylvia's nurse
appears, and the two women establish
themselves in a smaller building adjoining the summer camp of the three
bears.
To prove that they are true to their
ideals, the three men establish a dead
line-between th habitations, It being
understood none is to encroach upon
the domain of the other. But one by
one. the men yield to the charm of
Sylvia and they seek rather than avoid
her company, phristopher fells ln
love with Christopher, whom she dubs
her "little bear," while the two others
are called respectively the "big and
middle-sized hears." Each seeks her
at tlie dead line and as the days pass
the bears become madly jealous of
each other.
Sylvia's bucolic romance becomes
delightful and she is happy until the
arrival of the wicked married woman
whose pursuit has driven Christopher
Into the country. Then Sylvia bas a
few unhappy hours, embittered by
jealousy and tears. But Christopher
finds himself at last and the love romance of Sylvia and himself culminates happily for both.
Dainty Marguerite Clark takes the
role of Sylvia Wilson. This dollght
ful screen story will be shown at the
Ilo-Ilo Theatre on Tuesday evening.
'A B C OF LOVE" IS
CHARMING ROMANCE
Mae Murray Bathes in Wash Tub
Mae Murray takes a bath In a stationary wash tub and otherwise cavorts in "The A B C" of love," which
conies to the Ilo-Ilo on Wednesday.
This Is her newest picture, and, Incidentally, one particularly suited to the
talents and personality of the charming maid of many moods.
The A B C of Love" being a romantic comedy-drama, the story does
not end at desertion—no, indeed!
When hubby learns his Inamorata Is
only playing him for a part ln his next
play he hot-foots it P. D. Q. to the
wife who has just learned her ABC.
.The settings, both interior and exterior are highly artistic and beautifully lighted. Miss Murray wears a
number of gowns designed to please
the feminine—and masculine—eyes,
and Dorothy Green, in the role of the
actress with siren charms, displays
some bizarre costumes.
Mae Murray portrays a ragged little
country girl whose Bole possession is
ail old mare nearing its last days. A
wisp of a creature left to the charity
of a none too charitable world, she is
finally left In the care of Harry Bryant, a young playwright.
The child's ignorance ls appalling—
she can't even read or write, but her
Innocence is as refreshing as apple
blossoms, and, one day Harry, without
looking forward to that not far distant
day when he will have to take her to
the city and compare her crudeness
and ignorance with his social world,
thinks only of his love for her innocence of life, and marries her.
All's well until he is back In town
and Diana, Nelson, an actress worldly
wise and conscienceless, exerts her
wiles anew. Harry does not know
that Diana, loving only herself, Is
playing him for a part ln his next play,
but this he learns beforo It ls too late,
and a reconciliation takes place.

WILLIAM FARNUM IN
"WOLVES OF THE NIGHT"
Big Star Attraction Booked for
Next Saturday Night—A Play
of Romance, Crime, High Finance and Vengeance.
When a man tias been Insane five
years, then recovers to find fortune
stolen, and wife remarried, he's in
hard luck. But this man has red
blood, courage and two hard fists. See
how he deals with toes.
William Farnum, the famous star
of William Fox photoplays, will be
seen at the Ilo-Ilo Theatre on Saturday next, October 9, In his latest de
luxe production, "Wolves of the
Night," said to be the most powerfully
dramatic picture ln which this great
screen star has been seen.
The story is of a mining engineer
who, having sought in vain for copper
ore In his land in the Northwest, has
converted it into a sheep ranch. Adjoining Is a mining plant in full operation, owned by three men who covet
his property.
The hero, Bruce Andrews, portrayed
by Mr. Farnum, is sent to Chile to Investigate some mines. While there
he Is Imprisoned in a mine through an
explosion, and news Is conveyed to his
wife that he has been killed. He escapes after days, but is crazed by his
sufferings.
No more breathless and exciting
moments have been experienced in
motion picture plays than the Imprisonment of the hero, his subsequent
escape and his terrific fight with three
conspirators who have wrested his
fortune from hlm during his absence
In a foreign country.
He returns home several years later
lo fiud his wife married to the man
responsible for his mishap.
"Wolves of the Night" is a real
Farnum picture, which means a picture rich In romance and stirring action. The scenic effects are very
striking and the photography beautiful. This picture will be shown at the
matinee next Saturday and at both
shows In the evening.
BOOTLEGGERS' UNION.
The new button of the Bootleggers'
Union is rather a nifty affair. It is
built on the "Hands Across the Sea"
principle—an overturned bottle of
Scotch and above it the two hands,
one passing a nine-dollar bill to the
other. The wearing of these buttons
saves a lot of time as the bootleggers
have been known to try to sell to one
another in error.—Adam Yoker.

Launch Campaign
Against Smoking
It kas arrived!
There have been occasional rumors
aud alarms in the past, but now a
definite programme has been outlined,
forces are being marshalled and a
campaign is to be waged on "Jimmy
pipes," tobacco jars, various members
of the el calibago family, and the
weaker cousin, the cigarette. All of
which was decided upon at a meeting
"for women only" held In St. Andrew's
Presbyterian Church on Wednesday
afternoon. Dr. Jessie B. Conway presided.
The meeting wus largely attended,
no children being allowed, nor wns
mere man admitted to the church. Dr.
Conway addressed the gathering,
which first discussed matters which
are not usually dealt with 111 open
meeting, but following this, the advertised subject, of the gathering, tho
Iniquities of the pipe, tlie cigar and
cigarette were proclaimed.
"A vote was taken," declared ono
woman who was present, "and it was
decided to wage a campaign against
the use of tobacco. It was stated that
women are using cigarettes almost as
freely as men wero, at the present
time. I voted for the campaign, because 1 think that tobacco should be
kept away from our young boys,"
stated the woman. "It is not so bad
perhaps for the ones that have been
smokers for yenrs, but if they will not
stop smoking they should be compelled to do so as an example to the
young people.
"It is the intention of preparing a
bill—slmething like the Prohibition
Bill—which will be submitted to the
government after a time. The government will he asked in the meantime to
llscourage smoking."
