No New School By-law
It was proposed to put a bylaw for approximately $260,030 but
there will be no new bylaw submitted by the Board of School Trustees of South Vancouver this year.
Trustee Morris, in making a report to the Board regarding an interview Trustee Campbell and he had with Dr. Young, wrote : "Bath
Dr. Young and Dr. KcUnson considered that it would be inadvisab.e
to submit a new bylav. at the present time. They feel that if the
School Board will allow the present school accommodation to fill to
its utmost capacity, even though it entails for a short time certain
inconvenience's to the particular districts that are likeiy to be overcrowded, that the ratepayers will then more readily pass a new bylaw next year, and will more fully realize the importance attaching
to full provision being made to meet the growing needs of education
in  South  Vancouver."
In regard to the refusal of the Provincial Government to make a
grtnt of $75,000 to Soulh Vancouver schools this year, Mr. Morris
wrote : The Provincial Government claims that the previous grant
was only Kiven on conditicn that the municipality did their part in
raising funds for education in the district; and so soon as the byiaw
was turned down the grant ceased. The department, however, congratulated the South Vancouver School Board on the energy and
ioresight it had shown in its work.

Shakespeare  Considered  as  a  Politician
By Felix Penne
In a few days particulars will be
announced of an interesting "evening
with Shakespeare." in which sume
distinguished Shakesperian scholars
now on a visit to Vanceiuvcr will lake
Thc affair will lake place at the
Collingwood Institute where the recent Shakesperian Festival" roused
a good deal of interest in the works
oi the great poet.
Following up an argument I had
with a Collingwood Shakesperian enthusiast I wanl le. present to the
readers   of   the   "Chinook"   eme   view
"i the dramatist who was born at
Stratford-on-Avon just .I5u years ago
���a view of Shakespeare as a politician, a phase of his character very
interesting just mew.
"Time cannot wither, m>r custom
stale"    his    "iniinitc    variety,"    for
Shakespeare is mure appreciated and
discussed than ever. Shakespeare
the man, the poet, dramatist, actor,
courtier has been studied from almost every possible point of view.
There is one view of his character,
however, which has only recently received anything approaching proper
attention, and that is the view I present.
Mr. Sidney Lee has so vividly told
"the life of Shakespeare" that we
seem to know him as though we had
been Iiis feilow-townsnicn. Professor Wallace has added lei Sidney
l.ee's story by sonic recent discoveries which puts Shakespeare's personal character in a most amiable
light, showing that he interested himself in the fortunes of two young people, living at the wig-makers, where
hi rOomed, ami thai, as might have
been expected of the author eet "Romeo anil Juliet," he tried lei smueilh
'lhe path of true love" fur them.
In these stirring limes when lhe
��ar clouds hang over Ilu- nations, we
may wel] remember lhat Shakespeare
also lived in linns uf national unrest, danger and tumult. The shadow
of foreign invasion darkened "the
spacious days ni Queen Elizabeth,"
anil lhe poet, whose duty il was to
"lark the very form and spirit of the
times, used his heaven-born gift of
s'liig to rouse men to patriotic fervors, met the fervor of a blatant
"jingoism." but lhe Hue patriotism
which bade his country bc true to
herself. Who can doubt that Shakespeare's living weirds, such as lie put
into the mouth of Henry V, had much
to do with thc moulding of the char
acters of such men as those who met
on Plymouth Hoe? Who can doubt
that when Elizabeth addressed her
troops in words that rang like a
fmmpet blast, she caught some of the
inspiration which she had admired in
"the  swan   of  Avon?"
Shakespeare was a politician. Not
in any narrow sense of that often
much abused and much misunderstood term, He watched the trend
u( public matters with the eye of a
keen observer e.f men and affairs, and
always with the mind of an impartial
judge and lhe Boul of a true patriot.

of a high class order, li is quite
evident now that while honest criticism will always be welcomed 'en

Collingwood  Ramblers
Picnic at  Bowen  Island
It is calculated thai  about 90 per
of   the   population   en'   Greater
Vancouver made holiday on \ ictoria

not observe the national festival have
,  ,-,!   from   grim    remorse    e,ver

that little corner of this "Out-post ol
the Empire" there seemed to be a
rivalry in the display of Union Jacks,
and the B. C. K- R. had to provide
many "double headers" to convey the
merry makers���(and their picnic baskets of  liriilnligmitie.il    proportions)
whe'  were   on   pleasure  bent.
Everybody hael a good time on Sat-
urelav: the weather moved the Siwash
rock to a joy dance, and no party
from anywhere���tee anywhere���enjeeyed themselves more than the fifty or
sixty "Collingwood Ramblers" who
went tn Bowen Island. No need to
have the excursionists remember all
the merry-hearted, light-toed, good-
natured souls who during the winter
have met at the Collingwood socials
and be sure that now, when summer
is a cumin' in, they were found with
the "Collingwood Ramblers." Of
course Mr. and Mrs. Price. Mr. and
Mrs. Jones, Mr. and Mrs. Klack, Miss
Flack and other well-known people
���were there with bounteous baskets.
Of course "Peggy" Muirhead, the
Misses Pegg. Mr. Bert Kent. "Alick"
���indeed all the "nobility and gentry"
of Collingwood took part in this
pleasant excursion, and Mr. J. Francis Bursill forgot all about his dusty
tomes and manuscript and revelled in
story and reminiscences on as perfect
a day as he had ever enjoyed in his
beloved Surrey. Kent or Sussex. The
Collingwood picnic has been the talk
of the week. There has been only

shock and comparatively slight injuries, so that it is hoped a few days
complete rest will restore him to

game was a home run hy Baserine in
the fourth innings.

out, with well justified emphasis, the
influence that the Earl of Southampton, nine and a half years' Shakespeare's junieer. exercised eever the
poet. Those who favor Ihe theory
that Bacon (Lord Veruleun as he
sheiuld   lie   properly   called I.      wrote
"Shakespeare's plays" and argue that
Shakespeare,     unlearned     ami     p'nir.
could not have moved in society and
acquired the information tbe plays
disclose, forget that the intimacy of
Shakespeare with Southampton was
no Heeling intimacy ill his career.
There   is   ample   evidence     that     the
young earl, a lover eif literature,
watched the maturing of Shakespeare's genius with interest and na-
tional pride, and hc gave the poet a
thousand pounds���a bounty rare and
greal at that time, to encourage a
project Shakespeare had in mind.
The only works of Shakespeare printed in his lifetime were "Venus and
Adonis" and "Lucrece." Both these
were dedicated to the Earl of Southampton. If you read the dedication
of the first poem, "Venus" and compare it with that of its successor,
"Lucrece," you will easily see how
the intercourse Shakespeare hail with
the cultured, rich, courtier earl had
widened Shakespeare's mind and given him confidence in his own powers
and genius.
Henry Wriothesley, third Earl of
Southampton, helped Shakespeare to
"discover himself," as the modem
phrase has it, helped liim to move
among men of affairs and stimulated
his interest in the world around him.
Southampton was himself a precocious genius. He graduated M.A. at
Cambridge when only sixteen. Ile
entered St. John's College when only
twelve and at thirteen he wrote a
remarkable essay, in Ciceronian Latin,
to prove that "All men are moved to
the pursuit of virtue by the hope of
Men and women are attracted by
their opposite, and there is little
doubt that Southampton, "the sweetest nurse of knowledge in his university," with his aristocratic, cultured
mind, his somewhat pessimistic and
cynical temperament (as disclosed
in the essay mentioned above and
still extant at Hatfield) was attracted by lhe lowly bom genius who had
such a Bohemian, buoyant outlook on
life and whose politics were the politics of the freedom loving, patriotic
people. Shakespeare haled tyranny,
the tyranny of wealth, of power, "it
is glorious tei have a giant's strength,
but cruel to use il as a giant," he
said, and those words might be applied i'e "capital" today. Ile rebelled
even against the tyranny of his beloved royal mistress, who had imprisoned l.is friend and. in sonnet
(All. he bade his "love" (as a friend
vvas called in lhr.se days) look to the

claimed that the Council would  look
into  these  matters and    protect    the
people,    Mr.   Richardson  pointed  out
that   in   cities   whieh   used   the   block
pavement   they   insisted  on   a   certain
quantity of oil which the blocks must
be made to absorb before allowing it
to pass, and this varied according to
the climate.    Here where there  is so
much   rain   the     percentage     of     oil
should be  greater.    Reeve  Kerr  was
[followed   iu   his   remarks   by   Councillors  Thomas  and  Third, "who   en-
j dorscd what had been said    by    the
I Reeve, and explained further the plans
of the  Council.    Councillor Thomas
I said  that he had  given  the  paving  a
igreat   deal   of   lh.night   and   he   had

responsibility on their own shoulders.

Mr. J, T. Grimmett urged the necessity of grading Main .Street at once

sufficient time to settle before paving.

of   Wyoming.     Mr.  Trotter  may  well
be considered the most suitable man
for Ihe duties assigned to liim in connection with tbe conference. Hc has
for many years made a special study
of the emigration question in so far
as it concerns Canada and during the
course of bis work be has accumulated a vast amount of information
bearing upon  this subject.
The  object  of  the  congress  is  not
j to attempt to stop the tide of emigration   from   Great   Britain   to  Canada,
I but  to give accurate information  as
j tei  wages and conditions  which  new-
I comers   will   find   on     entering    this
I country.      It   is   almost   certain   that

For some time now an effort has

unions affiliated : United Brotherhood of Carpenters District Council,
representing four locals; Brotherhood of Painters and Decorators;
Structural Ironworkers; Lathers;
Marbleworkers; Builders' Laborers,
and Teamsters. Committees have
been visiting the unaffiliated unions,
and it i.s expected that a majority eif
Ihe unions of thc trade will he silently included in the new council. The
Building Trade Department of the
American Federation of Labor is giving every assistance in organizing
the council.

MR R. C. HODGSON, President of the South Vancouver Board of Trade, has thought out a project which,
if taken up in a whole-hearted, public-spirited way by the
municipality, will result in a great good for the people,
particularly the working people of Greater Vancouver.
Mr. Hodgson's plan strikes directly at that iniquitous
fellow, Mr. High Cost Living. The Se.uth Vancouver
man believes lhat a public market should bc established
in the municipality, somewhere along the banks of the
North Arm of the Fraser River, where there might be
placed on sale every week products from the Delta farming areas. This market, Mr. Hodgson says, should be
placed at the most slralegic point between Greater Vancouver and the prolific lands beyond thc North Arm, and
suggests a site near the foot of Fraser Street.
There is little question as to the feasibility of the project. A central vegetable, fruit, and general farm produce mart at a point convenient to both producers and
consumers would undoubtedly be well patronized. It
would mean a lowering of the present cost of food stuffs
produced in the farming districts adjacent to Vancouver,
for it weiuld eliminate our old friend lhe middle man.
There is a public market in Vancouver. While this institution has not been a success, markets of the kind outlined by Mr. Hodgson have worked out well in Seattle
and in a dozen olher cities, American and Canadian, and
it is lo bc hoped that when the Hodgson market proposition is taken up that South Vancouver's market will be
somewhat better managed than has been Vancouver's
public  market.
It is understood that the Provincial Government will
assist in the financing of the proposed public market for
Seiulh Vancouver. The Board of Trade supports the plan
to a man. Il now remains for the gentlemen of the
South Vancouver council te. Interest themselves in lhe
matter and support a project that should demand the
assistance of men who have thc good of the people at
'T'.iK greatest need en' Seeuth Vancouver today is em-
* ployment feir lhe working man. and it is to bc hoped
that the Municipal Council is in deadly earnest in advancing a policy to buy up industrial sites along the North
Arm. The ear of every ratepayer will be tuned from this
date on to hear of progress being made with the new
policy. It might be suggested that if the Reeve and members of the South Vancouver Council concentrated their
efforts upon solving a few problems such as that of buying lands for industries and left a whole lot of trivial detail work and title tattle to the wisdom of the large and
expensive municipal staff, it would be better for all concerned.
South Vancouver can get along without an occasional
motor car for the use of the Councillors, but cannot advance without industries; South Vancouver can get along
with an occasional man on the municipal staff who has
lived in the United States, but must have work for the
thousands of artisans who are pouring into the district
and buying homes; we can preigress without a couple of
boxing arenas, but the factory proposition must be solved;
our Councillors can navigate without qualifying for'professorships in the modern paving colleges, but the North
Arm will be a barren waste until some cheap sites arc
bought up for manufactories; this blessed municipality
shrieks for the whistles of a hundred factories, but views
with alarm the attainment of high oratorical altitudes by
good civic fathers.
QECAUSE there is a death occasionally as a result of
*-* a blow received in a boxing contest is no valid rea-
Son why boxing contests should be debarred. Of all the
more vigor..ii- sports, lhe- record of boxing -hows thai
there are fewer injuries incidental to this spoil than te.
any of the other form- of vigorous amusement,    Rugby
football claim- possibly hundreds of victims annually yel
there Is no greal outcry againsl this spbrt, A few years
ago papers commented 'en brutality in ihis form of sport
and some changes were made in the American game to
make il more palalible for those who were crying againsl
il on this senn. But even yet it is far from a parlor form
of amusement, and only   those physically lit cnler into it.
Even baseball has its fatality list, and it is hard to conceive of a cleaner game. It is not necessary to dilate upon
thc possibilities of lacrosse. Those wdu. have witnessed
matches in any part of Canada during recent years can
subscribe to the chances of injury and accident in this
game. The fact remains that in all forms of sport requiring any greal degree of physical energy there is always an element of danger.
The boxing contest at Calgary the olher night in which
Luther McCarty lost his life is but an accident of ring
history. It was an unfortunate circumstance, but is no
good reason why contests ill thc ring in Calgary or any
other part of Canada should be abolished. When rugby
football is abolished because of accidents on the rugby
field we might then turn attention le, the beixing arena.
In the meantime the death of McCarty is to be regretted
but under the circumstances it is no just cause for a crusade againsl a sport which may have some doubtful features but which on the other hand has many elements in
ils favor.
According to recent Provincial legislation, "ii June lsl
he cities and municipalities of British Columbia will be
able le. pass bylaws regulating the sale eif milk within iheir
borders. Up t" thc present Se.uth Vance.uver. eir any other
nunicipality or city on the mainland for that matter, has
nol had means eif obtaining a preeper lest of milk sold to
tonsumers. Milk had to be tested in Victoria, which made
ilu possibilities e.f securing a conviction e.n lhe sale e.i
impure milk very rcniejte indeed. According lee the mn
Provincial Act, ihe municipalities eer cities are given much
meire power. They will have authority I'. test milk and
<n representations of their officers and officials prosecutions may follow. The foolish sending of milk feer test
purpose- ie, Victoria will be eliminated.
The authority of the municipality does not end there.
Tiny will be authorised i" have all cows thoroughl) tested, to see that ihe stables and surroundings are iii a sanitary condition, and that measures i" safeguard the health
of llie ptiblic fre.m the standpoint of pure milk are- properly
enforced.    Officers e.f ihe- municipality, it is understood,
may even go out the borders eif iheir own district in oiil i
p. secure evidence anil to prosecute investigations.
Milk consumers ami mothers e.f infants particularly will
welcome legislation which will ensure a supply eef pure
milk. Impure milk is one of lhe relies of lhe dark .melt some vendors declined to voluntarily raise lhe standard
eef the milk solel by them, at last the people will have the
satisfaction of knowing lhat there is a law which demands
certain standards in  the milk supply of the- province.
TODAY lhe world is being treated to t.he spectacle eef
a former President of the United Slates proving
before a law court thai he Is neit a drunkard. Arthur
Brisbane, a great American editor, wreetc this een drunkenness :
I'.vcry human being Bhould read histeiry intelligently,
if only for thc encouraging effect on the miiiel.
In every direction, and in spite of foolish croakers, the
human race has improved.
Good men and women deplore the drunkenness of t.��-
day, and they do right. But for their own satisfaction
and encouragement they should know that in comparison
with former times the drunkenness of today amounts to
W.ttere one man drinks too much these days, a iheeiis-
and men and a thousand women were frightfully drunk
a  few years ago.
Drunkenness, which formerly attacked the most useful eif human beings���doctors, statesmen, poe-ts, the besl
mechanics���is confined now to a feeble fragment eif humanity made weak by disease, hereditary influence, discouragement  or  imperfect   organization.
More important than this encouraging development is
the changed altitude of the public mind inward lhe drinking habit. Twenty-live cenlures ago a Greek philosopher,
to make heaven attractive, described thc table at which
heroes sat in a never-ending, blissful stale of drunkenness.
Today even the meanest man is ashamed to have it
known that he is drunk, and the most hopeless drunkard
would ask no greater favor than that some one should
make it impossible  for  him ever to drink again.
IT is to be h.iped lhat when the council of South Vancouver put into effect a milk bylaw, which will be soon
that every precaution is taken to protect lhe consumers of
milk in this municipality. Impure milk is one of the greatest causes of infantile mortality and it would be folly to
make ourselves believe that we have been free from the
curse of impure milk. Impure milk has collected a heavy
toll in British Columbia and its full share in Greater Vancouver.
THE "CHINOOK" WAGED a campaign te, have the
Soulh Vancouver Council apply an occasional dose of
water to that splendid metropolitan thoroughfare, Main
Street. After many days of dust, finally a water wagon
made its way over Main Street. The next day there was
more dust and no water wagon. It began to rain the
following night, and has rained a bit every day since.

NEW WESTMINSTER is laying a water main acmss
the North Arm of the Fraser River at a depth of nineteen feet. Proceeding on the basis that nineteen feet is

thirty  feet.

11 was unlucky f'er Mr. Bryan that
he should have put in his plan for
promoting peace a proposition that
would lend lo provoke war. Ilis
general idea was at lirst tiiat two
governments having a serious difference between them should agree to
wait six months e.r a year before
making il a casus belli, and that ill
llle meantime neither of them sheeiild
take any steps lo prepare feir war.
When the Secretary of Stale laid this
idea, in his usual amiable and conciliatory fashion, before the Senators
whose aid he sought, some of tbe
veterans among them promptly pointed out to him that this would work
mischief and nol good. If, for example, under such an agreement the
United States had a serious dispute
with Germany, and by coincidence
or otherwise, should happen, under a
like agreement, to have one also with
Mexico, wc should be shut off from
making any preparation for a war
with the former. And the gray-headed Senators wcre suspicious enough
to suggest that such a combination
might even be facilitated by the
shrewd European Power. In any
case it was plain that by, Mr. Bryan's
original plan our hands might be
lied in a way and to a degree that
would he extremely disagreeable and
might be disastrous.

New Dress Goods
According to advance information,
fashion designers have turned t.e the
packing houses fe.r cow's hair which
is made up into dress material for
wear nexl  fall.
Mohair has been a popular fabric
for many years. Thai il was in use
in England in the early pari of lhe
eighteenth century is obvious from
Pope's   allusion    lo   a    woman      whe.
"observes how much a chintz exceeds a  mohair."
Horse hair has been used in many
ways and the wonder is not so much
that cow's hair is to lie utilized by
textile manufacturers as thai Borne
one did not think of il long age. It
is said thai cloths eif this sent are
much cheaper than mohair, which
speaks well  feer its success.
The goods made iu ihis country
are becoming popular with dry goods
buyers whee are looking abeeiit for
materials which promise to be popular next season, but the imported
lines made from cowhair are not selling  so  well as  the price  is  high.

Planned Her Own Kitchen
A young wife determined when the
new house was lieing built to plan her
own kitchen. "1 know it sounds
crazy," she says, "but I am deler-
niiiie'l to make my kitchen the most
important part of my house. A young
architect friend of ours brought us
out some plans a while ago and he
would not even listen to my objections
at first. I got him to leave the drawing ami llie next day 1 borrowed a
square and made some designs of my
own. I used llle architect's foundations ami measurements, but 1 pulled
lhe rooms every way. What caught
the young man's attention was my arrangement of hall space and the way
I tucked the cellar slairs into the
foundation wall. We had a grand
evening fighting out our pet theories
ami Boh sat talking first one side
and then the other. It worked out
that the cost would be about thc same
for both arrangements, but you would
never dream, unless you happened to
lie a woman, what the different arrangement meant I know that it isn't
reasonable to expect a young man
who isn't even in love to know which
side of a sink a drain-board ought to
be. If you have washed dishes off and
on for twenty years you get to appreciate having a dish closet flush with
the wall righl over the drying slab.
It's a pleasant little attention, too,
for the doors of that closet to slide
instead of swing so that they do not
jab you viciously in the forehead. I

Superior condition, i" a large extent, was resj lible for the victory
of the New Westminster Minto Cup
holders over the Vancouver club in
the opening game of the professional
lacrosse leason on Saturday lasl sl
the Royal City. For one half the
match ii was an even te.?.-; then the
I cup holders simply romped away
from their checks and made the Con-
test leiok like a real holiday frolic,
The champions have rarely been
remiss in mining oul a team which
lacked condition.   One would almost
think that during the entire winter
I months  the  club existed on  summer
fare so strongly did the team show
j up iu respect to condition of its play-
i ers.     Last   week's   game   once   more
developed   the   fact   thai   Vancouver
has yet to solve the problem of condition for its players.
The cup-holders have a distinct advantage   in   practically   claiming   their
entire   team   as   home-brews.     What
that means over a team which  must
be  gathered   from  different  points  is
not  necessary  to  enlarge upon;  it is
too apparent.    The home loyalty end
must   not  be   forgotten  also.    There
is a great deal more in this phase of
successful sporting organization  than
the   public  is   prone   to  acknowledge.
In  the  great  majority  of  cases  it  is
the point of balance between victory
and defeat.
About  the  game itself not  a  great
deal  can   be  said.    While  the  champions wore in much better form than
the   Vancouver  club,   they    will    no
doubt   travel   in   better  shape   a   few-
weeks'  hence.    It  is  only  natural  to
expect that Vancouver too will show
a   decided   improvement   ill   this     respect.   The match was about as clean
as  could  possibly  be  played.    Three
penalties were handed out during the
afternoon,  and  these  for  only  slight
offences.     The     Westminster     home
showed   their   old   time   skill   around
the nets and in the last half of the
I game the Vancouver defence could
j not hold them. Aggressive work
j around  the  nels  has been  the  secret
of many Xew Westminster successes

| pions  of  this  year will  follow  pretty i

Barrieau's defeat at the hands
Bayley last Saturday night
convinced probably the greater number eif boxing enthusiasts who witnessed the contest that the Vancouver boy will have to adopt different
tactics if he is lo attain to any degree of success in the squared circle.
There is as much difference between
the styles of Bayley. tbe Canadian
champion, who resides al Victoria,
and Barrieau, as there is between
day   and   night.      Barrieau's   style   is

Barrieau's knowledge of boxing in
lhe clinches was that of a novice.

-kill in ihis respect and he had Barrieau iu trouble as a resull almost
li..in lhe Start, Barrieau did well
f.er about three rentuil-. lull afler that
n  wa- just a question of lime.
The lie.iil was remarkable for the
fact that two British Columbia boys
battled for the Canadian championship. It might be remarked, too, that
seldom dei such clean-cut boys and
line examples of manhood step into
a boxing ring.
Barrieau was considered one of the
mosl serious contenders that Joe Bay-
ley had lo dispose of in these parts.
Bayley's showing was all to thc good
and will go a long way towards
strengthening the belief that lie may
yet become something greater than
a  Canadian   champion.
The other day in Victoria. Jimmy
Britt gave it as his opinion that Bay-
ley has all the features that make
champions. In other words he expressed the view that Bayley was
just another Ad Wolgast, showing
all the best qualities of the ex-champion. Bayley has no doubt a long
way to go to display a Wolgast record, but hc is the most promising
boy that Canada has developed in
years to aspire to the lightweight
championship  of the world.

Just who the other man will be in

One of the finest crowds which has

the bumper crowd which was eiut tu

Easton Lanyon is not one of the

comfortable. But the garden dates
back to the time of the Tudors, and
has an exquisite, haunting charm beyond all other gardens in the garden

Anstiss Forrest sat alone in the
Jacobean slimmer house, at the far
end e.f the white rosery, and played
with a year-old baby. He knew her
now, and cooed to her as readily as
he bad cooed to his mother three
weeks ago in the westbound train���
responding to Anstiss' kisses in happy unconsciousness of the reason why
his yellow curls were tied with a knot
eef black ribbon.
Presently  he  grew  tired  of  play,
and cuddled down into llie girl's arms
and went lo sleep there, while Anstiss regarded liim with hungry eyes.
Today she should hear���beiw soon

for yem. Miss Forrest? You're not
very strong yet, you know," he said,
and if Anstiss bad not been so occupied with setting a watch upon her
own eyes and lips she might have
wondered at the change three weeks
hail wrought in Lord Leyland's manner toward her.
"Tell me quickly," she begged.
"How soon must I give him up?"
Jack Leyland came into the summer   house  and  sat  down  beside  her.

"Oil, (In make haste!" cried Anstiss
desperately. "How soon do they
wanl  him?"
"They don't want him at all. No
one wants him!" The color deepened in Miss Forrest's cheeks, her lips
parted a little, hut she said no word,
"Il seems his mother was separated from her husband," Leyland went
on, "When 1 saw him���I didn't wonder. Ry way of heing an 'officer and

I've ever had thc ill luck to meet.

"Oh!" said Anstiss. and her lips set
as they had not done since the dav
eef  the   accident.
"It   seems    lhe   nieither   hanelu't   a

course, there are orphanages, as the
father kindly pointed out to me. I'.ut
we'll do better than that for him, I
guess. W'e don't send our guests lo

Anstiss looked up quickly, wilh
one "I her bright challenging glances.
"You need not trouble! she saiel
eagerly. "I love him! lie shall be
mine! My baby, my little Alec!"
Her eyes Hashed defiance into Ley-
land's  bewildered   face.
"Do you mean  that you will  adopt
him?" he asked,
"Exactly,"  said Anstiss.
The  young  man     tugged    at    his
"I'.ut. Miss Forrest���forgive mc if
I seem impertinent���do you realize
what it means to bring up and educate  a   boy?"
"I call work for him!" said Anstiss
"That's splendidly brave of you���
but you forget another thing���an
even   more   important   thing."
"What is it?" demanded Anstiss re-
"Lord   Leyland!"
Hut Leyland's eyes met her steadily. "The world is so confoundedly
censorious," he said reluctantly. "It
will ask why on earth a pretty girl
should burden herself with a strange
child���and  what  will  you  reply?"
Anstiss' eyes blazed. She was furiously angry because she felt that
what lie said was true, but she answered readily enough.
"i shall say that I adopted him lie-
cause we were two lonely creatures
together, lie shall be my son to me,
and I will be his mother to him���and
I don't care a���a thing���what the
world says."
She looked away, as though the
discussion were finished. Leyland
looked troubled, lie had never been
so anxious about anything in all his
life as thai no breath should blow
upon the fair fame of this wilful, romantic girl he���loved. Nor so desirous of anything as that she should
not go her own solitary way ignoring
their   three-weeks'-old   friendship.
"There i.s something else you for-1

you any right to pledge yourself for

whisperings of the outside world. It
is like you to do so. But suppose,
when he is old enough to understand,

Anstiss had turned to him again,
anil  her  lace was white.
"What a fool you must think me���
and I am a fool," she said slowly.
"What a beastly place the world is."
She knew she must yield to Leyland's

will lie "The Only Way." a dramatization of Charles Dickens' great novel,
"A Tale of Two Cities." By many
this  is  thought   to be  the  best book
��� ef lhe great master writer. Although
many authors have chosen the French
Revolution feer their background,
neme have created a story of such
wonderful power as has Dickens in
ihis novel. This will be the same
version as presented by Martin Harvey in England, and Henry Miller in
America. Its stirring plot and deep
heart interest has appealed to all
classes. The wonderful character of
Sydney Carton teaches us that even
a hopeless drunkard may be capable
of great deeds. The action is placed
in the two cities. London and Paris.

was after a delibi tl nipt to kill
him mi February 2ti. 1898, when he
was shot at while driving with his
daughter,  Princess  Marie.
The- determination of assassins of
royally i��� one of iln- most remarkable
features   oi   those   dastardly   crimes
Ne,   fewer   than   three-   attempt!   were
made on the life- nf King Humbert
of Italy. On November 17. 1K7K, ten
months after liis accession tej the
throne, a man attempted to stab him
with a dagger, thc King escaped with
a slight scratch. The second unsuccessful attempt was in 1897, when a
workman struck it him with a dagger
while he was driving lei the races, the
murderer's blow being again averted.
Three years later, however, the assassin llresci accomplished his fell
purpose by shooting King Humbert
at Monza.
The Emperor Francis Joseph of
I Austria has reason to be greatly cm-
' bittered against assassins, for not
only was his wife, the Empress
Elizabeth, fatally stabbed while walking from her hotel at Geneva in 1898,
but twice attempts have been made
on his own life. In 1853 a tailor
named Libeny tried to stab the monarch in the neck, his knife sliding
down thc military cravat of the Emperor's uniform, only a slight wound
being inflicted, while in 1882 he was
shot at by a youth named Overdank.
the shot, however, missing its intended mark.
Four Czars of Russia have been
assassinated, the last being Alexander II, in 1881. Six attempts were
made em this monarch's life before
the fatal end. On one occasion he
only escaped through the barrel of
the assassin's pistol bursting, while
in 1866, when the dinner hall of the
winter place was wrecked by an explosion from thc cellars, the Emperor
owed his life to the fact that the
company did not sit down tee dinner
at the usual hour, and so the ex-
plosion was ineffective. Ultimately
Alexander was blown to pieces with
nitro-glycerine while driving through
Si.   Petersburg ..n  March  13,  1881.
Three attempts have been made e.n
lln- life- of tin- present Czar, the last
lieing in 1905, while celebrating what

How  a  Famous   Lion   Tamer   Had to  Fight for  His  Life
A in..ment aller the pictures were
taken tin lion sprang al the man and
almost killed him. The seen* was
Sulphur Springs, Fla.i the man. Captain Jack Bonavita, one of the world I
famous animal trainers. Lion and
man wh' posing f"r a picture liim,
the man willingly, the lie'ii because
lhe man compelled il Yem see lhe
last picture before ilu- lion sprang.
Tin- nexl was never taken. Instead
vnu niai conceive a white-faced camera operator, hi- hand paralyzed hy
fright and lu- an mtioii riveted i" tl"'
horror before him.
Captain Bonavita will be remembered in New York by his exciting career as chief trainer of the De.stnck
animal.- at Dreamland. He lost an
arm there in a battle wiih the fierce
lion. Baltimore, iu 1905, ami six years
later, when Dreamland burned, came
very near losing hi- life-. This killer was in an attempt to rescue the
imprisoned animals. lie failed, hut
hi- ..Unit made nnc eif the bravest in-
cidents in a long career nf daring.
Ihs recenl close escape at Sulphur
Springs occurred during the enactment of a motion picture drama called "The Child, of the Jungle." The
acini-, were Bonavita and a lion named Brutus. The scene was laid in a
big cage, decorated in such a way
that tlie bars weret invisible, and it
appeared to be the centre of a in epical woodland. Bonavita was supposed to he a man who, iu his childhood, had been trained by an old
lion tamer to the ways of the wild.
He had grown up. however, in civilized surrounding. A shipwreck had
thrown him hack into the jungle.
This was where the picture began on
the day of the accident.
The operator was stationed just
outside the cage with the lenses of
his camera poking through. There
was a good deal of roe mi in the in-
closure. Dnnavila had tn manipulate things sn that the most dramatic part of the episode���the moment
when he proved that he hail mit forgotten his childhood mastery eif animals��� wouhl lake place directly in
front of the camera.
It was a risky business, llriilus,
llie lieen in the acl, had been ugly for
two or three days, lie was jungle
born and the smell e.f the tropics had
gone lo his head. Turning him loose
in a strange cage was very likely to
have   unpleasant   results.      Bonavita
kin-w ihis, hut as the possibility of
unpleasant results constitutes an im-
portant feature ..f his profession, kept
lln   mailer  lee  himself.
The   liim   began   to   unroll.     First
there appeared from ihe thick foliage
00 lhe far side nf the cage lln- lion
tamer,     lie was  supposed  I" be lost,
half starved ami seriously crippled.
Hi- forward progress was a series of
11- and fierce struggles i" new i""t-
I'an  nf lhe time he was on bis
hands and knees. He came closer
unlil tin-re was barely twenty feel between him and lhe camera. The linn
remained sullenly against the wall of
ihe cage, a tawny shadow iii the
undergrowth. Bonavita called him.
It was time for the lieeii tei appear in
the  subjugation  e,f  Brutus    to
helpers.     By   lhe   time   they   had
big   cat   backed   intei   a   corner     i��e.i
wounds em the tamer's chest had been
supplemented by others on  Ins leg
and thigh, lie was taken to a he.s-
pital. His injuries were serious, but
the doctors thought his vitality would
pull   him   ihreeiigh.     Il   diel.   Within  a
comparatively short time he wa- able
to receive the camera operative anel
relieve hi- mind "i a burden which
hael rested there ever since the taking
nf   the   picture.     Later   he     discussed
matters more calmly
"It will happen occasionally," he
said. "The most trustworthy beasts
g.e wrong sometimes, jusl a- ilu- mosl
peaceable men flare up and ihe evil
things. I felt very sun- of Brutus because   I   have  tried  him  in   various

the picture. Brutus did not respond.
The tamer called again. Then he
threw a pebble. Hrutus flashed into
the air, made a ten-foot bound across
the stage and landed directly in front
of the camera, his tail swinging angrily.
Now there is one difficulty about
acting for motion pictures. Every
animal trainer holds mastery over his
charges by sheer power of personality. Bonavita, in adding to the
realism of the picture, was compelled for a moment to abandon his own
personality and assume that of another man���a weary footsore, fatigued
man. Here was a jungle���trees,
ground, bushes. Here was the man
lie hated, plainly in the last throes of
exhaustion and therefore an easy victim. Brutus lashed his tail and
Outside the camera man turned
monotonously at the crank. Through
the foliage there caine the slow,
steady whirr of the twirling film
spool.    Bonavita  stumbled.
"That's fine!" called the operator.
Tlie man had fallen on liis right aide.
Both lie and the operator knew that
at this point there was a hidden club,
Roftavita reached for it hastily. The
lion, after hesitating a second, had
sprung forward. Thc club struck
him sharply on the note He shrank
Bonavita still la> . n his side, his
left hand upraised. The right was
the one taken off by Baltimore in
1905. It was plain that Hrutus
might put some more impromptu
business into the scene. On the other
hand, the picture was almost finished,
If he could hold off the lion long
enough to make the battle a part of
the film it would make the whole picture drama that much more valuable
and realistic.    He decided to try it.
Brutus, e|tiitc evidently, was willing.
Ile made a new advance. Again the
stick landed on the tendcrest part of
his anatomy. This time it did not
cow him. It merely made him mad.
He licked the injured nose, growled
savagely and sprang forward with
bared teeth.
"Great!" called the operator. Bonavita said nothing. He had seen in
the great cat's eyes that which told
liim that in about two seconds "The
Child eef the Jungle" was going to be
registered among the most realistic
dramas ever produced. He started
to straighten up.   The lion sprang.
For a moment the camera opera-
tier saw a struggle which, if he had
possessed sufficient presence of mind
to record it, would have made a unique and absorbing picture. Bonavita
was down witli the lion clawing at
his chest. Helpers, armed with long
iron poles, were entering ihrough the
cage doors.
"Wait!" the fallen man cried to
them. His eyes were fixed on the
lion; the club was again poised in the
air. It came down. Brutus shivered,
elreepjieil his head and seemed about
to give up. He was almost mastered.
"Turn! turn!" Bonavita called to
the operator, lie saw that the crank
had been idle durirg the entire fight.
That ended it. Bonavita quietly
fainted   from  loss  of blood  and  left
era. Just what caused his sudden
Outbreak 1 will never be able to guess.
1 had put him through the same in
a rehearsal a deizen limes and he had
it down pat. This doubtless caused
me to bc less on my guard than I
usually am. When he made the
spring 1 saw that he was out for
blood, but it was too late to get my
eye on him. That's the whole secret.
Once made to know the meaning of
the trainer's straight gaze and the
wildest  of beasts  will  cower."
Soon after he joined Bostock's
show as an acrobat, Bonavita took a
fancy to animals and requested Bostock's permission to try his hand at
training them. Two coyotes were
among the animals with the show
and they were turned over to the
would-be trainer. He soon tired of
these and asked for something bigger,
making the astonishing request that
he be given a lion. Bostock sized up
the fellow, found that he had a good
eye and steady nerve and finally decided to try liim with one of the most
docile beasts in the menagerie.
In a few months Bonavita was performing wilh twenty-seven lions in
a large caged arena thc most remarkable act ever produced. It was this
act that tnaile him famous. In the
fall of 1903 Hostock decided to try
his fortunes abroad and divided his
show, sending one-half to Philadelphia for winter quarters, and the
other lo I'aris, where he opened the
Hippodrome, soon the talk of Europe. Bonavita continued with Bostock up to thc time of his death, and
then joinid the motion-picture
He makes his headquarters in Florida, writes his own scenarios and attends strictly to his own stage managing. This is his first accident
since he took up the new line.
"The Child of the Jungle" is now
being produced at a hundred motion-
picture theatres. The audiences are
always rather a little disappointed
at the scene when the man subdues
the li'in.    It ciuls sei abruptly.
