PHILADELPHIA. A' woman has
voluntarily gone to jail in Newcastle,
Del., in order that her beard may
grow, shielded from the public gaze.
She is Mrs. Edward J'erris, and for
many years she sat in the side show
of a circus and displayed her luxu
riant whiskers. She was thrifty and
managed to save $7000.
As the bearded lady she was a star
feature of the side show. Through
the practice of thrift she saved up
nearly $10,000. Although her face
was her fortune, it was not a face to
inspire romance. Nobody likes to
make love to a woman whose blushes
are hidden under six inches of black
whiskers. It Is hard to caress a fairy
who has a beard like Santa Claus.
Nevertheless, one of the glassblow

had in her sock and shut his eyes to
everything else. He wooed and won

After the wedding the bride passed
under the razor. The brush was re
moved from her visage and she be
came much as other women are. By
shaving every morning she could pass
for a regular Lydia Pinkham.
Nevertheless, the love of the glass
blower was fragile and in due time it
cracked. He had gained possession of
his bride's little fortune at the start
and now he began to waste her sub
stance In riotous living. He bought
crazy oil stocks and he bet money on
the slow horses. Came a day when
he went broke. The wife had no more
coin and the husband packed his gr'p
and left. The woman could no longer
support him in the style to which
he had been accustomed.
She knew no other occupation than
that of a bearded lady. Che had never
taken up stenography and she was
useless in a manicure parlor. Whis
kers had brought her gold and glory,
but her dalliance with a. safety razor
had left her shorn indeed. Yet she
is not as one without hope.
Whiskers will grow, even without
Accordingly, the woman, now pen
niless, has sought the seclusion of a
jail, where she Is again giving her
whiskers carte blanche. When they
are long enough she will return to
the show and her meal ticket.
Likewise, she has the hope that her
beard may yet lure the fickle hus
band back to her side.
Love will find a way.
Another time she will know enough
to leave razors alone.

The soloists for the University of

white slaver, . resident of Chehalis,
Wash., yesterday was sentenced by
Judge Bean of federal court to serve
three years on McNeil's island. The
sentence was one of the heaviest im
posed for violations of the Mann act
in recent months.
Cameron was convicted on three
counts of an indictment charging him
with transporting Mary Alvls, a
young inmate of the state home for
the feeble-minded at Salem to Wash
ington for immoral purposes. A jury
which first considered the case trailed
to agree on a verdict. Cameron was
employed as a heating engineer at the
institute at the time- he persuaded
the girl to elope with him. The case
created widespread interest at the
first trial, scores of witnesses being
called for both the government and
The convicted man was roundly
scored by Judge Bean in pronouncing
sentence. The Judge said:
"I cannot conceive of any excuse
for a man- intrusted with the care of
feeble-minded, assisting a girl of ten
der years to escape and transporting
her from one state to another, living
with her the way the testimony
showed the defendant did. It is a
case which does not warrant any len
iency." The conviction was considered as a
great victory for the government, in

No one outstanding problem con

with If, the church fulfills Its ,mls
Bion, according to the combined views
of a number of Methodist bishops at
tending the semi-annual meeting of
the board of . bishops in Portland
when interviewed yesterday on what
they considered as one of the biggest
questions before the church.
Practically without exception they
qualified their selection of a problem
as one of many questions of great
Importance. No two looked upon the
matter In quite the same light but
their answers indicated a broadness
of view that is not confined to one
locality or one sect but to the entire
world and the present-day conditions
that constitute great international
and national problems.
Provincialism Held Curse.
One of the greatest needs of each
individual church community is to
comprehend its true relationship with
the remainder of the world and strive
to maintain Its part in building up
world relationships, in the opinon of
Rshon Homer C. Stunt of Umana.
The greatest curse of tne cnurcn
today is Its provincial attitude, ae
clared Bishop Stuntz. "There is too
great a tendency toward localized
ideas. Each community sees Its own
needs but to the exclusion rather
than the realization of the needs of
other parts of the world.
"To do its full part each church
community must take into considers
tion the world needs as well as its
own and work toward making It bet
ter in all ways in business, educa
tion, commerce, industry, all the ways
that affect human welfare and
throw in its work of saving souls in
World Tasks Fared.
The task of evangelism can never
be fully understood until we visual
ize a non-Christian world and set
ourselves the task of recruiting
enough followers to bring in an en
tire Christian nation. Only Dy iook
lnar uDon each church community as
a recruiting ground and training
school for a world programme can
we really hold the attention of
The reinstatement of Christ In the
hearts of each individual constitutes
one of the biggest tasks of the church
at the present time, in the opinion of
Bishop William Burt of Buffalo. The
individual brought to right ways of
living is the most efficient means of
overcoming any form of social wrong,
according to his view.
Christian Viewpoint rrsred.
"Qur problem is to reinstate Christ
in all our human life the home, busi
ness andaall our eocial relations," said
Bishop Burt. "If there is anything
wrong , with the community get the
individuals right first and then you
can look to the other to right itself.
The permeating influence of Christian
character accomplishes a wonderful
work. The man whose life reflects
his religion reaches all those about
him in a more effective way than
anything that one can preach or say.
'As a church and as Individuals in
the church we believe we must take
tha whole world into our programme
We must have the brotherhood of
man before us not in theory but In
practice. . So many today think that
the New Testament is not applicable
to modern problems. That is a wrong
impression, for its teachings were
never more needed or more effective
than they are today.
Industry Situation Problem.
The present industrial situation is a
great problem for the church at this
time, in the opinion of Bishop Francis
McConnell of Pittsburg, whose area
includes perhaps the greatest indus
trial section in the entire country.
We must get the right attitude
toward social and industrial ques
tions," Bishop McConnell stated. "At
this time there is apparently a re
action of public sentiment , in favor
of the more favored classes. The
church has to be very careful not to
lose sympathy with the laboring
"We are showing enough interest
on the part of our own people, but
not enough toward other groups. We
must strive for real justice and
avoid an attitude which would pre
vent us from so doing."
Chrlstianlzation Is Need.
Bishop Ernest L Waldorf of Wich
ita regards the Christianization of our
industrial and international relations
as one of the greatest things lor
which the church can work.
'The destructive question of our
day is the industrial problem," said
Bishop Waldorf. "The friction and
misunderstanding between employers
and employes as manifested in strikes
has cost the nation an. average of
$5,000,000 a day during the last 18
"Its real cause lies in the failure of
both parties to recognize and deal
with the other as fellow men rather
than at tools or as pay checks. All
are the children of the same father
