The Fighting Shepherdess
The stereotyped motion pietnre
character of the man who keeps
the Western dance hall and saloon
gives place to a new type in "The
Fighting    Shepherdess"    starring
Anita Stewart,  to be seen at the
Greenwood Theatre on Saturday,

Miss  Stewart plays the part  of
the daughter of the proprietress of
a questionable tavern in the California sheep and cattle  country.
It is perhaps the first time that a
woman has ever been shown in
moving pictures as the keeper of a
western roadhoase,  though in the
|���old    days . many    followed  that
occupation. , It ib also the  first
time that Miss Stewart has ever
taken part in a western play in-|
western garb.
, Fresh from Broadway with several trunks filled with the latest
styles in clothes, footwear and
headgear. Miss Stewart laughed
when the garments she was caLled
upon to wear were pointed ont to
her. Gc-odnaturedly she Laid
away her finery and donned high-
heeled boots, buckskin skirt, broad
brimmed hat and shootin' irons to
play the fighting shepherdess."

war next spring and summer in thc
event that outside foes carry out their

Trotzky when he said the Japanese

the shrunken remnants.

English plants Has produced, after 24
years of selective breeding a dazzling
white variety, trie first of a new race
of disease-resisting flowers, which is
described as a triumph of horticulture.
Its breeder, Stuart Low, who is
showing his novelty, named White
Pearl, at the Royal Horticultural
Hall, London, has succeeded in retaining the old ! carnation ��� fragrance,
which in many Modern varieties .has
almost vanished. It is stated that

at the rate of about 100 volts per meter of ascent, roughly speaking, It is

the "restoration of knighthoods and similar honors in Canada.
It is st-range 'that such a. notion
should occupy the minds of public
men at a time when so many serious
problems demand solution, the tariff,
the railways, unemployment and immigration.
"No worthy cause will be advanced
by ministering to the vanity of a few
socially ambitious" men and women.

Conference Would Prevent Use of Gas
In Any Warfare
Washington.���A five-power contract
to impose the age-old penalties for piracy against naval commanders who
violate accepted laws of naval warfare
was approved by the armament committee of the Washington conference.
It completed the formula for suppression of U-boat terrorism at sea and
the committee then moved forward toward a prescription of gas warfare on
sea or land.
Again Mr. Root drew the resolution to effect the prohibition.' Again
an immediate five-power contract to
abandon gas or other similar chemical weapons as beyond the pale of
humane tolerance is proposed, to be
worked out later by world agreement into the fabric of international
law. And again it would be stripped
of others of the horrors German ingenuity let loose upon the world.

giving np will prevent unhappiness; to yield when persisting will chafe and fret others; to go a little, way around
rather than come against another; to take an ill word or a
cross look rather than to resent it; these are the ways in
which clouds and storms are kept off aud a pleasant, smiling sunshine secured even in a humble home, ainong very
poor people, as well as.in families of higher station. Much
