The third Goldvvyn PnVure star
ring Mae Marsh is the "Cinderella
Man," from the famous play by
I'.dward Child Carpenter, which
was a leading Broadway hit when
produced in the regular theatre by
Oliver Morosco.
It is the story of a young heiress,
Marjorie Carter, who is so much
touched by the account given by
her father's lawyer of a young
poet, Anthony Quintard, who is
starving in a garret at the other end
of the Mock, that she undertakes to
bring him food and comforts over
the roofs. Her trips to the garret
are made during Quintard' ab
sence; but one day he catches her.
He suspects that she is the mill
ionaires daughter, and is about to
evict her because, as a Socialist, he
has no use for persons who are
"filthy rich," when she tells him she
is just Marjory Outer's companion,
Miss Mudge. So he suffers her to
remain and presently she volunteers
to help him by typewriting his 0(
era libretto which he has just com
ploted to he submitted in a con
test for n $I0,(n) prize.
In due course he finds himself in
love with "Miss Mudge.'but feels
unable to dech re himself because
he has no mouoy. At lust, however,
he makes Ivold to ak her if she'll
have him when he makes good;
and he is delighted when she tells
bun "Pel haps.'' But while he is
wailing, n former lover of Mar
jories who has boon engaged to
wed her, appears to claim her
hand; and when the time comes
that Qutiitard wins the prixe and
is ivihIv to nk her to become his
wife, he finds her already betrothed
to another. His indignation is in
creased vv hen be learns that she
really is " filthy rich" after all; and
It takes the combined e Torts of her
father and bis three friends to un
tangle the situation, and bring Mar
jory to her happiness. At the Isis
for one night only, Thursday,
March 7th.
We take this means of thanking
our many friends for their acts of
kindness and sympathy during our
recent sorow, the death of our be
loved husband and father.

Simple Explanation of Odd 8hape of
Tree, That Hat Been a Mystery
to Many.
To the person who la not versed In
forest lore the grotesquely bent tree
trunks that are to be found In almost
all woods are mystifying, and wonder
1 often aroused as to the cause, re
marks the Popular Science Monthly.
Foresters will tell questioners that In
the case of trees in mountainous coun
try and other sections where the snow
fall Is heavy, the weight of enow is re
sponsible in most Instances for the
queer twists they assume. When a
tree Is young the weight of snow that
falls on Its branches often bends the
trunk over until It la flattened to the
ground. Sometimes tt Is burled under
six or eight feet of snow and held In
that position bo long that when warm
weather comes the tree fulls to spring
back Into Its normal position. The
summer sun causes the tip of the young
tree to turn upward and If tt manages
to withstand the weight of the snow of
the next winter, that portion of the
tree will, as a general rule, continue to
grow In a normal way. "Hairpin" bends
and other odd shapes result.
A curious tree stands on the top of
Tunnel hill, Johnstown, Pa., about four
miles from town. It Is a sugar maple
about one hundred years old which has
prolonged its own life by grafting a
branch Into a much younger tree.
No Matter What the Nature of One's
Occupation, Its Routine Will Oc
casionally Weary.
Are there times when your work be
comes intolerably lrksomeT YesT Well,
lon't jump at the conclusion that you
are In the wrong place when this hap-
pens once In awhile. That will be true
whatever work you choose. No matter
how well adapted you are to your occu
pation, there will come times when
your thoughts will wander, and the
routine will weary you, and you will
feel that any other work would be
preferable to that which you have
chosen. One of the best-known woman
writers of the last generation wrote
nn Impassioned warning to literary as
pirants, telling them to do any work,
even scrubbing floors. In preference to
taking up a literary career. Undoubt
edly she wrote at a time when her
chosen work seemed unspeakably Irk
some, but If she had been cornered,
she would probably have acknowledged
that the profession of authorship has
considerable to commend It when com
pared wKh scrubbing floors.
This occasional Impatience with our
vocation Is lnevltahle. No matter how
congenial It Is, there are times when It
will seem a burden. The people who
change their occupation every time It
begins to bore them, are the tramps of
the business world.
As to Remarkable Longevity.
We have all read of Thomas Farr,
who lived to be one hundred and fifty
two. Likewise of the countess of Des
mond, one hundred and forty-five ;
Murgaret Patten, one hundred and
thirty-seven; Thomas Pumtne, one
hundred and sixty-four; John Rovln,
one hundred nnd seventy-two; and fe
tor Torton, who reached the age of one
hundred und eighty-five. Hut thes
cases of extraordinary longevity lad
In the days when those persons
lived no accurate chronological records
were kept, ami dates of occurrences
were usually fixed hy associating them
in memory with other event believed
to have happened about the same time.
A man's Identity was liable to be con
fused with that of a grandfather of
the same nntne.
Nowadays nobody lives to any such
aces. Why imagine that the extreme
limits f longevity have shrunk within
th last two or three centuries T
Winter's Discipline.
He who murvots at the beauty of the
world In summer will find equal cause
for wonder ftnd admiration In winter
It Is true the pomp and pageantry are
swept awnr, but the essential elements
remain the day and the night, the
mountain and the valley, the elemen
tal play and successor!, and the per
petual presence of the Infinite sky. Iu
winter the stars seem to have rekin
dled their fires, the moon achieves a
fuller triumph, and the heavens wear
a look of more exalted simplicity.
Summer Is more wooing, . . . more
versatile and huuian, appeals to the
affections and the sentiments, and fos

Love In Flshdom.
This Is no "fish" story as the term
Is usually referred to, but It Is a story
about fish. Jim Fostpr, student of fish
afTnlrs, vouches for Its authenticity.
Jtm hns a collection of big live fish
In a email nqonrlum In a down-town
restaurant and for 12 hours every night
he wntches them perform.
"The fish are very affectlonnte," de
clared the fish student. "They are
good-tempered and kind toward one an
other. See those two largest fish?
They are 'married,' I guess, or else In
love with each other. They always
kiss each other good night nnd nibble
affectionately at each other's mouths.
The female of the two never puts her
cold flns on the male one's back. And
In the morning say. It's amusing to
vrntch them yawn and stretch them
selves." Detroit Free Press.
How Would You Tie I Camel?
Becnuse of Its peculiar swaying mo
tion In walking the camel hus been
culled the "ship of the desert." This
title may also have some reference to
the extreme stupidity nnd passivity of
the animal, which submits to great
loads, which It will often entry for
days at a time without stopping for
food or drink, with no more urging
thnn a ship would require from the
hands of Its pilot, says the Popular
Science Monthly. The mnnner In which
the drivers hobble the camels when
they stop for a rest Is Interesting.
They do not depend upon stnkes driven
In the deep, yielding snnd, but simply
double back and tie one of the fore
legs of the animal, so that It can lie
down or rise up, but cannot move from
the spot.
Curloui Burials.
The Inhabitants of Mesopotamia
have curious customs in the disposal
of their dead. The corpse Is carried
to the grave dressed In ordinary
clothes, with the face uncovered. Bod
ies are burled In shallow graves, nnd
after a period dug up again, the bones
being collected Into a whltii linen bag
and deposited In small buildings.
"One day," says an officer of the
R. A. XI. C, "I snw such a bag In a
church ; It was labelled with a wom
an's name. In a village near the
Struma I bar visited one of these
storehouses of the bones of the de
parted. The hags most recently placed
In It were sttK white and whole; oth
ers were whole, but stained brown by
time. Those thnt had been deposited
In years past had rotted away."

A dispatch from Food Adminis
trator Hoover yesterday partially
cleared up the puzzle as to the price
of wheat at Portland. I'tuler the
proclamation of the president the
price was fixed at $2.05 a. bushel.
This catrsed some dissatisfaction
as it was contended the price should
he the same as at Chicago. While
there is considerable difference of
J opinion on that point, the Hoover
telegram states that the shipping
board has undertaken to give the
Pacific northwest a rate of $3.50 a
ton by water to New York. This
the hoard expects to accomplish
hy using the new tonnage for car
rying the grain crop of the North
west through the canal and to Now
York, if not on to Europe. Seattle
has already turned out thirteen
ships which are rapidly being made
ready for service and the yards at
Portland are running a vesel off the
ways every week. In another
mouth or such matter a launch
ing somewhere in the northwest
will he almost a daily occurrence
and the new ships should he able
to carry all of Oregon's grain crops
and much besides to the Eastern
markets. If Hoover can cary out
his program it will make the price
of wheat at Portland abput $3.18, as
the price at New York is $2.28 and
the $3.50 rate would amount to
about 10 cents a bushel. Now if
Mr. Hoover can do something to
ward equalizing the price of corn
so that the Northwest will not he
throttled by the profiteersmen, his
work will he appreciated. He
should remember that poultry own
ers arc forbidden to sell their hens,
or to feed them wheat, and yet the
speculators are allowed to hold corn
prices at a prohibitive figure. Corn
worth $1.25 at Chicago is worth
about double that in the North
west. This would allow a freight
rate of about $15 a ton from Chicago
to Pacific coast points, or more than
ten times as much as is to he
charged for carrying the wheat
crop east. Salem Capital Jour
