PORTLAND SEES ITS
FIRST BIG RDUND-UP
lEtY GERTRUDE. F. CORBETT
Multnomah Field Well Adapted
for Staging Contests of Cow
boys and Rough Riders.
BIG EVENTS ARE MANY
Addison Bennett Finds Fault With
Management " for Xot Taking
Audiences Into Its Confidence.
Suggestions Are Made.
BY ADDISON" BENNETT.
The Portland Round-up Association
put on Its first performance in Port
land at the Multnomah Field yester
day afternoon, and repeated the same
last evening. The weather was most
auspicious and the field where the
show was stag-ed Is certainly well
adapted for such a performance, with
the possible exception of a shortage of
room for housing- the wild horses and
wild steers, but that Is something that
can easily be overcome. As far as the
track is concerned, as well as the
enclosure within the track, these are
all that could be desired, while the
seats are so arranged that every one
, gives a full view of the entire arena.
Twenty-four Acts Billed.
There were 24 acts billed for yester
day and a couple more were added to
these, one of which, a song, "Montana,"
rendered on horseback by Tracy Lane,
was about as well received as any "of
the set acts. The published programme
was as follows:
No, 1 Introduction of noted riders.
Xo. 2 Sons by Tracy Lane.
No. 8 Cowboys 'pony race.
No. 4 Trick and fancy roping.
N( 0 Cowboys' relay race.
No. 6 Riding bucking1 burro a.
No. 7 Cowgirls' pony race.
No. 8 Steer riding.
No. 9 Ladles' bucking contest.
No. 10 Pony express race.
No. 11 Trick and fancy riding:.
No. 12 Bulldogging.

No. 18 Cowboys Roman race.
No, 19 Cowboys' bareback riding.
No. 20 -Cowgirls relay race.
No. 21 Quick-change race.
No. 23 Indian relay race.
No. 28 Wild horse race.
Special Bulldogglng from Maxwell ca.
Much Enthusiasm Elicited.
Some of the events were well con
tested and elicited much enthusiasm
from the audience, which numbered
somewhere about 2000 people. The
bucking contests were about medium,
perhaps taking- the ten of them their
merit was a trifle above the average,
but there were no hair-raising exhibi
tions for the reason that the horses
that bucked the worst gave but very
few Jumps before dropping Into a
docile condition. That Is only to be
expected when horses are frequently
used for such a purpose.
The management could add to the
pleasure of its audiences by making
the announcements more explanatory
and by placing numbers on the backs
of the men and women who do the
stunts. These numbers are given these
people in the programme, but there is
no way for a member of the audi
ence to tell who Is doing a stunt unless
he or she knows by personal acquaint
ance. Also the time of the continu
ing events should be announced (if
taken) and there should be some partic
ulars either published upon the pro
grammes or rendered audibly by the
announcer as to the number of rounds
of the track to be made and other con
ditions of the events, and by all means
an announcement should be made at
the close of an event as to the winner.
That certainly was not always done
Show Should Do Good Business.
"With the fine talent in the way of
people and good animals, well up to
the average, the show should do a
pood business all the week and will
If the management will take their
audiences a little more Into their con
fidence and keep them informed on
every detail of what is going on in
the arena or on the track.
There will be two performances each
day during the week, one at 2 P. M.
and the other at 8 P. M.
The following were the winners In
the various events yesterday after
noon: Cowboys" relay race. Shorty
Hall; cowgirls' pony race. Bertha Blan
cett; pony express race, Jimmy Taylor;
chariot race, Tracy Lane; Indian pony
race, James (lhangrow; cowboys

NO CHILD ought to live with his
lid off all the time. In a recent
prize competition for ideas on
child training a' mother gives effective
testimony to the Injustice of the "come-let-us-llve-with-our-children"
when carried to extremes: "Worst of
all. I had no secrets. Mother helped me
write the only diary I ever attempted,
and corrected the spelling. Even my
letters were opened, on the ground that
I could have no secrets from mother.
And I did not. Automatically I un
burdened my soul In the half-hour at
bedtime and told mother everything."
Rubbing Off the Bloom.
"I told mother everything." What a
life! No matter how minute the de
tails, how complex the situation, how
sacred the experience, the child was
expected to pour it out like buckshot
out of a bag. Surely no human being
could possibly be delicate. Impersonal,
understanding enough to handle the
roseleaf confessions of a little girL And
so it proved. She continues:
"The conviction that secrets were
wicked was too strong for me. I even
told her that glorious first time when
the nicest boy I knew kissed me. And
with the telling a new-born, wonder
fully sweet and elusive thing was
killed. I felt suddenly coarsened and
degraded and I had felt neither with
the giving of that kiss.
"After that I began telling timid but
quite deliberate lies as a means of self
defense. Smothering; With Mother.
The mother was not of a prying na
ture. Her curiosity was unselfish. The
child slept in a room adjoining that of
her parents, with the door open, for
safety. She never did up her own hair
until she was 13. She was judiciously
helped in everything she did. Her
mother always took pains to stay at
home to greet her when she came in
from school. The girl was simply
smothered with too much mother. .
When the natural rebellion came,
when the life demanded Its own In
dividuality, she told lies In self-defense.
This girl could never have grown un.
in, Uxafc household. baA h aet Aoom aorl
Thus she saved herself unto becoming
and being a real person.
I do not deny that a child should
confide In his mother. For a number
of years most children are communi
cative to the verge of boredom. The
trustworthy mother who does not give
away secrets is likely to be confided in
more or less always. It Is forever wise
to try to stay at hand If the child
wishes to Bend out a call of alarm.
But It Is equally true that if a child
Is ever going to be self-reliant and
independent in judgment such a child
must keep come things In his own
breast until he has had leisure to turn
them over and decide what to do with
There comes a period when It Is un

Rooms of Their Own.
This girl when she herself became a
mother learned a great lesson. She
writes: "Our own children have abso
lute privacy. They each have a room,
and we knock on one another's doors.
Their letters lie unopened. If I am not
there when they come from . school
they leave a note on the bulletin-board
as to their whereabouts, and that Is all
there Is to it."
How heavenly! They actually knock
on each others doors, without brutally
trying to surprise each other In mental
or spiritual undress. They do not
sneak each others letters. They are
really courteous and fair-minded and
trustful of each other. We have a
right to expect large-minded, generous
spirited men dkid women from that
