Ole Olson
Thu opera liouse w.-is filled to
tlje overflowing on Tuesday
evening when Ben Holmes, the
prince of Swedish dialect comedians, presented his comedy
success "Ole Olson."
Ole, who bane in dis kontry
ten mont and saxe wake, is
truly a queer character, at
limes pathetic, then his wit and
humor which was thoroughly
enjoyed by everyone as was evidenced by roars of laughter
from all parts of the house.
H. Partly as warm hearted
but erratic G. Quintlan Shingle,
proved a good critic on "Foolish
Questions." Basil B. Buck, as
Paul Jordan, can better till the
vidian's shoes than those of his
dead brother. 0. Dean, as Jefferson Bassett, Agnes' lirst husband, surely played his part
well and would never be mistaken for a kind hearted husband and father. Miss Lottie
Hyde, as Mrs. Lena Schmidt,
brought down the house on
several occasions in her merry
scramble for husband No. 2.
Miss A. Fluvioi as Mrs. Agnes
Jordan, played a strong part
inasmuch as she proved that a
mother's love is stronger than
the   vidian's   money. Miss
Luella Arnold, as Genie Dimple,
is a plucky little maid with
ready tongue and loyal nature,
her Irish dialect being not
quite so Irish. Little Kathleen
Coughlin, as Baby Phyllis, behaved admirably for a kidnapped child.
The members of the company
played in unison with each
other, thus giving good support.
Everyone enjoyed a good evening and we will always be glad
to welcome "Ole" back again.
Died While Hunting
Vancouver, Nov. 13.—The
strange and sudden death of
one of its members, Dr. H. S.
Ford, of this city, followed a
Vancouver hunting party which
has been spending the past ten
days in Jervis Inlet, a famous
hunting ground 100 miles north
of Vancouver. In an attempt
to recover a mountain goat
which the Vancouver physician
had shot he became detached
from his companions and their
Indian guide last Tuesday
morning. It was not until late
Thursday afternoon that the
party, aided by a number of
loggers from a lumber camp,
found his lifeless body. He'had
evidently lost his way in an
effort to take a shorter route
back to their camp and died
from exposure. The Indian
guide with another of the party
had accompanied him down to
the foot of the cliff to secure
the goat's hide. Carrying the
doctor's gun, they rejoined the
party expecting him to follow.
When he failed to return the
party instituted immediate
search and for two days guns
were discharged and lires lighted to this end. His body was
brought to the city tonight.
Dr. Ford was well known in
Vancouver, a son of C. W. Ford
and was about 112 years of age.
He leaves a widow and one

their logical faculties. Such a
movement could not but help
in the making of good citizens.
He was not a Boy Scout himself
(laughter) and never would be
unless they formed a society  of
I old boy scouts. He had closely
studied it and had formed the
opinion that it was a  most, de-
1 sirable movement and one to be
i warmly supported.

All Chinese to Cut Off Queues.
today when an imperial edict
was announced commanding
all representatives of China in
foreign countries to sever their
queues. This means that every
Chinese ambassador, minister
and consul, or consular agent!
must obey the order, which
states that it is effective immediately.
This edict is believed to be
only the forerunner of another
commanding all Chinese to
follow suit, entailing such a
wholesale haircut as tho world
has never before witnessed.
The origin of the queue is not'
definitely known, but is supposed that it was forced on the;
Southerners, or Chinese, by the
Northerners, or Manehus, as a;
mark of conquest. The Chinese
had hitherto worn their bair
twisted at the top of their head,
so the Manehus called them
"hair twisters," while the Chinese called their conquerors
"queue wearers." Finally the
wearing of the queue swept all
over the Empire, and became
one of tlie characteristics of the
nation. Every  man  in  the
country, except a few who have
been educated abroad—from
Emperor to beggar—wears a
queue. The passing of the
queue will throw the street
barber out of work, as heads
will not require such constant

Everything Points to an Early Election j ♦
London, Nov. 13.—The general anticipation now is that the
election will bo held in December. The Chronicle says it
is certain to be fought and won
by December 20. The latest
rumor on the street is that parliament will be dissolved on
November 29.
A cabinet meeting on Monday or Tuesday will decide
what step tho government
will take to bring the political
crisis to a focus. The plan
most likely to be agreed upon is
the immediate dissolution of
parliament. While the government might send a bill embodying its veto proposals to the
house of lords for consideration, the lords would certainly
reject it, but probably would
consume much time in the consideration and discussing the
general question of the reform
of the upper house along the
lines suggested by Lord Rose-
berry last session. Immediate
dissolution will save time and
perhaps make possible the holding of elections before the holidays.
Premier Asquith returned
yesterday forenoon from Sand-
ringham, where he was in cou-
serence  with   the   king. No
further steps in arranging the
government's program are
likely before the cabinet meets.
The "Blind Pigs"
One feature of the Prohibitionists' proposals which receives very scant attention in
the calculations and the contentious of its advocates is the
increased taxation rate which
must be paid in order to equalize the loss of license revenue

casies," flourishing under tho
Prohibition plan, make no return to the country in-the mun-

An addition to rule 7- is an exceed

Some years ago, the late Professor Rowland, of Johns Hopkins University,
testifying in a case involving the Cataract Power Company, in answer to a
ejuestion on cross examination as to who, in his opinion, was the greatest
Ainericun scientist, replied. "I um."
After leaving the court room one of the lawyers ventured to criticise
the  answer  for  its  effect  upon  the  jury, whereupon Rowland exclaimed:
"Well, what else could I say?    Wasn't I under oathf"

irchistic organizations hnve made* at

On mv way here- tee Calcutta 1 trcve-l

In* said:
"Our Indian troops will be leeyul enough as long as England is in lhe ascendency end ber power in the fur east predominant. If We slieelild huve t ...libit*

safety lies.
Said another general whom I met here
at   Calcutta:
ee if th.- British rule were removed for
c week, India would be cencer.-hy. The
Mohammedans would swoop down on
Hn* Hindoos, nice! Hie Goorkhas would
toot and massacre the towns e.f Bengal.
The onlv salvation  for   India   is   in a

I am told that tin- a.jitu.e.rs ure cluing

smuggled into the. native barracks, and
attempts mude t.> cronte dissatisfaction

the question among the fighting cluss is
if the Japs were victorious why should

war of Hn- future. On the other hand.
the rajahs appreciate the conditions
that would obtain should the army, as
uow constituted, be dissolved. One of
the northern chiefs, who controls! n

The  army,  all  told,   would   be  .- II

shouting at the tup of his voice without knowing what it was all about.
Filially the thief was caught, beiug
headed off 1*v a policeman stationed on
a corner.
For a time the culprit was indistinguishable, sn completely was he surrounded by the mob, which, like a hurricane or a rising sea, threatened his des-
.truction. Officers rescued him, however,
pushing back   his pursuers.
A breathless woman stepped nut uf
the ranks and began: " Moosieur Polico-
man, Ihat man .snatched my gold bag

that—and that!" she exclaimed, .-inking the offender over the bead with her
" I)on 't take your revenge in that
way, ma da me," suid the policeman.
".Come with me tn headquarters and
make your accusation.''
Thereupon tlie officer, the thief, nnd
the victim set nut for the station in ;in

Black Taffeta and White Lace Hat
for it certain stylo of hat, and while some are simpler iu de-
bigll than otnerM, there are few, if any, that are so simple as
they appear.
Like the nimplo gowns, every line aud detail has been
most carefully thought out in the individual wearer and the
hat has been most carefully constructed before it can pass
the gauntlet of the master milliner's scrutiny. All of which
takes time and skilled labor, and, although the prices asked
and obtained are fabulously high, time uud skilled labor ure
expensive and must be reckoned with iu calculating the cost.
*    •    *
The constant change of style is terribly trying, not only
to the woman who has to calculate closely what she spends,
but to the woman who is intent upon always being well
groomed and who, having spent many hours in selecting hats,
suddenly discovers that a new importation has arrived in
which each and every model is entirely different from any
she hns in hor present collection. It requires considerable
self-control not to be swayed by the continual change, and to
continue to wear the originally chosen hats with that serenely
conscious, self-possessed manners that a thoroughly satisfactory  bat bestows upon the wearer thereof.
Are large or small hats the most fashionable? is u question continually asked and oue that is hard to answer.
Never was there a season when smaller or ratuur more
close fitting hats were worn, and yet never wus there a season
when such immense ones were fashionable, and also the medium sized hat is eagerly sought for.    At one time it was
emphatically stated that small hats in the daytime and large
hats in the evening solved the problem, but now, with the
Oriental style of wrapped turban shape chosen for the evening and the enormous, all-enveloping hat made of crin or
straw, trimmed with bows of tulle or ribbon and many flowers
and unmistakably intended for day wear, all ideas ure changed again, and it is indeed a difficult task to steer correctly
along the winding path that Dame Fashion elects her subjects
shall tread,
!       Toques and turbans are tremendously popular, but quite
rlistiuct in shape and style from what were called by those
names a year ago.   The general outlines are quite unlike. The
I bond sizo is always large so that the hat goes down far on
| tlie  head, and   as this sometimes  i.s  unbecoming, an  inside
j band, or halo, as it is culled, has to be put in to raise the
! hat from the head and show at least a glimpse of hair and
: features.
Fancy straw, wonderfully .-soft und pliable and in every
conceivable color, is used in these huts, and, treated as though
j it were tulle or silk, is folded and pleated and fairly wound
around the frame.    A still aigrette or bow of tulle, silk or
velvet  or a jewelled ornament is the trimming thought the
I smartest, but within tho last fortnight have been seen hats of
! this description   where stiff sprays of  roses  have been  the
j trimming.   The huts are soft in outline, but the trimming is
always stiff and hard, in sharp but most effective contrast.
i There are toques made with brim of flowers and crown of
. ma lines,  plain  or figured;  these are  round  in  shape, quite
j large, and the flowers are of the small blossoms; the crown
j is extremely full, with many loops and bows, generally black,
although  tliere  are many  with  the crown  of silk  bows to
; mntcli the gown, while the flower brim muy be a lighter or
darker shade of the same color.
With the street costume, the simple tailor gown, is worn
i this season a much plainer, more suitable style of hat than
' was seen last year. Medium si.'.oy and small shapes are the
I best, although there are few of the larger shapes that are in-
; eluded   in   the  latest exhibitions.
A hat, something between a toque and turban in shape,
i that is popular, tits quite close to the head, is apparently
| .small, although in reality it is of medium size; it has a brim
j of hemp braid or crin that turns down; the crown is of satin
I or silk, quite high and full, and at the left side is a large stiff
I bow of the silk or satin. Another of the same description
! hns a black velvet crown with white straw brim and a bow
1 of white straw that looks like a piece of lace. Then there is
i a modification of one of last year's most popular walking
I hats, with the brim rolled back toward the front and caught
- with a fancy bow or stiff feathers. This year the shape lias a
, higher crown and a stifl'er brim, but the lines are aim or t the
1 same, liough straw and with tiie satin finish is smartest for
this style of hat, and in all colors, as well as in black aud
white, it is iu constant demand, for it is generally becoming
und most practical,
l-it.ee is one of the most fashionable trimmings this season,;
: both white nnd black, and most beautiful pieces of lace have
: been takeu from the family treasure chest   and made up into
•the lnce hats that nre so effective and becoming, or twisted

A flat hand of white lace on the brim inside or' a black
ill is extremely snmrt ami the sharp contrast of the
ugainst the black challenges attention at once. Then
wi en combined with roses, pink, yellow, rod and white, there
is no material that is sn satisfactory. A burnt or Tuscan
rough straw witll thc luce around the crown nnd n spray of,
pink ruses at the .side looks equally well with a light or dark '
gown and is invar'mbly becoming, while the white or black
entire lnce lmt with aigrette or roses bestows the finishing
touch to :i dainty uiui picturesque summer frock,
The double skirt has come into fashion once again, and
once again must the question of the underskirt or lining be
must carefully considered, or the gown will be a failure. Soft
silk or satin or silk finished linings are chosen preferably
and then a de-ep facing or flounce uf the material is put on,
over which falls tiie gown, aud if the lining is not perfectly
cut and fitted then the task of making the gown is most dif
ficult, of not impossible. With the transparent materials
often two and sometimes three are used in order to gain the
desired shade of color, but this again is so difficult a task that
the amateur dressmaker will secure much better results if she
uses a more expensive lining of silk or satin and a more
closely Woven fabric, not so close but that the color and sheen
of the satin will show through.
For the moment the exaggeratedly tight skirts are in
style, and even when the upper skirl.-, arc toll the linings ait
still extremely scant, so that the same effect is given, especially when the fulness i.s gathered witli the bias fold or band
around the ankles. This fashion requires to be most carefully dealt with, or the gown will look vulgar and ugly; in
fact, too much care cannot be given to copying the original
models, as the fashions of the moment are so exaggerated
as to be unbecoming to the majority of women. The lining
for the waist must be cut to fit tight around the waist, bin
must have sufiicient width across the bust and directly beneath the bust, for otherwise the lines of the figure will be
completely spoiled. The seam from shoulder to waist line is
now thought better in the lining than the two darts, and it
is easier with it to give the desired breadth.
Since the exaggeratedly large hats show small sign of dying out, the hat box, large and clumsy as it is, must certainly
be reckoned with if a girl cares to have every detail o. her
private sanctum perfect. Even if a pretty paper covered box
is thought sufficiently attractive for a closet, it certainly
will not do if the box is to be kept on one of the new hat
racks, which are now resorted to in small rooms where the
closet room is so small as not to admit of more than two or
three hat boxes on its shelves.
These new hat racks, or, rather, hat box racks, are really
excellent in a small room. Made triangular in shape, they
will fit into an unused corner and can be mnde with enough
shelves to hold as many hat boxes as desired. The plain
wooden frame can be either painted the color of the woodwork or of the room, or else rendered still more inconspicuous
by being covered with a bit of the same paper as that which
adorns the wall. The hat boxes are then covered with the
same cretonne with which the room is hung. A French print
framed with gold or silver metal laee placed in the centre of
one panel of the box is most attractive.
These bat boxes are already much in demand for prizes,
while for gifts or for sale at a fair they are still sufficiently
original to be eagerly sought. Wheu not planned for any
special room or rack there is, of course, greater freedom in
the choice of material and color.
For a rose colored boudoir, a Du Barry pink moire bordered about the box itself, as well as the lid, with a good sized
French print placed both on the top of the box as well us on
one-or all panels is really beautiful. A well made hat box
with wooden frame must be procured to cover, for an ordinary cardboard box is not sufliciently strong to be worth the
covering. All the more expensive hats are now generally
sent home in these boxes having wooden framework, and if
a girl is not so fortunate as to possesB such a box herself she
surely can beg, borrow or steal one from some friend or
The prints, of course, must be pasted to the material before the box itself is covered. The braid can be either pasted
or sewed on, thc latter method being a little more trouble
and intinitcly more satisfactory in the long run. To buy the
correct quantity of braid the box itself must first be measured, for every hat box today is a different size. The round
boxes, of eonrse. take much less material, and for the square
box each side should bc treated as a panel and adorned down
each edge. The braid emploved should be about an inch in
IT will be remembered that King tieorge V. when Prince of
Wales—two years ago on his voyage home from the Tercentenary in the Indomitable, went below in the stokehole and shoveled coal under a boiler till he sweat like a
navvy. King George will not. be likely to shove] coal on a
man-of-war. There will be a number of princely diversions
which public opinion will lead him to eliminate. But he can
never lose interest in the navy; and he. wiil probably know
even better than did his father the minutiae of the latest developments of man-of-warism.
For it is some years sinco King Kdwnrd was on ine sea.
He crossed the ocean in a dawdling old tub that must have
taken three weeks to make thc trip. And when King Edward

X who is sure that, although Mr.
Koosevelt may have found larger
game in Africa, he has fouud none mure
rearless that the javelin, or wild boar
of Texas, The guide, Jose Villegas, recently told a correspondent of the
Mt. Louis Globe-Democrat how a drove
of about twenty javelins once made him
and Mr. Koosevelt shin up mesquite
trees as fast as they could climb and
kept them there perched more thau four
hours, lt happened when Mr. Koosevelt
was Civil Service Commissioner. This
is the story:
When Mr. Koosevelt came down to
Uvalde and was brought down to the
ranch where I was working, he was unknown to the people of this section. 1
had never heard of him before, and
when 1 tirst cast my eyes upon him, I
sized him up for one of the Eastern
tenderfoots who did not know a chap
from a chaparral. In this mesquite-
covered country a guide is necessary
for any visitor, even if they come from
an adjoining county. I soon saw that

is an old .saying that one of them will
carry his weight in lead before he gives
up the ghost.
I dropt my gun as I climbed into the
tree, and a moment later a bunch of
the enraged animals were snarling
around the trunk uuder me, making it
impossible for me to recover the weapon, Koosevelt by this time had emptied the chambers of his rifle and was
rapidly backing toward a mesquite-tree.
The wild boars were cutting at him
with their tusks, and he was lighting
them off with the butt end of his rifle.
Finally he reached a position under
an overhanging limb, and reaching up,
he grabbed it, and quickly swung himself into the tree. As his legs left the
ground one of the boars tore the leather
of his boot into strips. There we were,
both of us treed, and no guns or other
weapons to kill the javelins that had
us  surrounded.
Mr. Koosevelt, like myself, had been
forced to drop his rifle when he sprang
into the tree, lie looked over at me
and grinned in a sheepish .sort of way.
The javelins tore at the trunks of the
trees witii their sharp tusks, and it look
ed for a time as if the small one that
Mr. Koosevelt occupied would be cut
down by the animals. The time passed
slowly, anil the beasts showed no signs

and slapped it over the broncho's la-ad
a few times, telling the horse to quit
his foolishness.

Dr. Sheldon finds from his limited ex
perience that this influence is not very
permanent in its actual doing of right
eousness. On the other hand, be does»
lind "a more or less blase condition of
"The theatre seems to create an arti
ficial atmosphere. It is glamour aud
dream life. Voung men who are caught
by the fascination of the nightly attend
ance on the theatre become dissatisfied
with real life. The atmosphere of the
play affects them not as an incentive toward the cleaner and more ambitious
righteousness but rather acts as a sensu
tional tickling of certain emotional
parts of their nature, and there is no
question whatever concerning the rous
iug of certain passions in the inveterate
theatregoer which, as far as my obser
vation goes, tend towards dcmorali/.a
tion of character."
There is no doubt that Dr. Hheldon is
perfectly right when he Hays that, "the
trouble with most theatregoers is tbe
failure to discriminate. They go to
good and bad alike." if tne actor or
actress is first class, that is sufficient for
them, although "the play itself may be
rotten to the core ami the teaching ob
jectionable iu the extreme." Dr. She!
don complains that church members will
condemn the things thev see and hear.
yet not one of them will register a pro
test by leaving the bouse. This leads
Dr. Sheldon to comment severely on
what seems to him to be a remarkable
inconsistency where the theatre is con
corned.    It is this:
"Our civilized cities an' vulgarized
by staring billboards which depict wo
men indecently clad advertising tli-*atri
cal presentations. Very few persnnw
seem tu think anything is wrong about
this; but if the persons portrayed on
the billboards were suddenly to come
to life aud get down off the boards and
walk nlong tho street tlm law of any
town in America would instantly arrest
them fur indecent exposure. The same
thing is true of the things that are said
and done on the stage. Actors and act
resses will say and do things on the
stage of u theatre which could not be.
said and done on the street or on the
sidewalk  of any  town   without   subject
iug them to arrest There
seems tn be one rule fur the theatre and
another  for common, everyday  life.'1
Dr. Sheldon cites the following editor
ial comment on u play given in a univer
sity town where scores of college buys
and girls attended:
"This piny is the story of the almost
brutal portrayal of the utter ^elfiwhiies**
of u man who. tu gain his own desire,
would sacrifice even his own wife.
The   scene   in        has   much
thai is nol nice in it: there is much that
is ugly, much thut is revolting in the
piny; and it is not one for quite young
giris t,, see attended bv boys its es
corts. "
Id' .'isii*. what excuse the theatre can
offer for the presentation of such a play.
The gravest charge that the reverend
author brings against the theatre is tttai
it is run in the interest of "big
money.'' It is not, he thinks, too
sweeping an assertion to suy that
"those who are 111 control of it are for
the most part governed by tbe box re
