Pasmore Girls Marry.
Two of the young ladies of the
Pasmore trio, who a few years ago
were popular Chautauqua attrac
tions here while their father, Prof.
H. B. Pasmore, conducted the musi
cal classes at Chautauqua, are to be
married, or rather one Is married
and one Is soon to be. The follow
ing from the Oakland Enquired will
interest the many Ashland friends of
the young ladies:
"When. Mary Pasmore. the well
known violinist, went to Lagunitas
yesterday and was quietly wedded to
Ray B. Burrell, the man of her
choice, she presented a strong con
trast to the methods of her sister,
Suzanne, pianiste, who formally an
nounced her engagement a few weeks
ago. Mary did not even announce
her plans to her family, though ten
tatively she bad their concurrence,
for, according to her father, H. B.
Pasmore. he had brought up his girls
from early youth to eschew the way
of rigid conventionality and urged
them to go and get married quietly
when you get ready.'
"Suzanns Pasmore told the public
gome weeks ago that she was going
to marry Digby S. Brooks, but sister
Mary beat her to the altar, Just the
same. However, Pasmore, pere, said
yesterday. I should not be at all
surprised if Suzanne did just the
same as Mary has done, In spite of
her announcement. She may come
in any day and say she is married,
and that Is quite all right with us.
Even now we only have heard that
Mary Is married, and Mrs. Pasmore
and 1 are posing here as stricken par
ents and waiting to do the forgiving
"Burrell is a well-known artist of
this city, his etchings having received
wide recognition. That is his profes
sional life, but he is also a 'cellist,
and th,elr musical tastes brought him
and Miss Pasmore into close sympa
thy. Pasmore spoke most highly of
his son-in-law, and added: 'No, we
are not really surprised at the elope
ment. Those two young people have
been showing serious symptoms for
some time, and we knew there was a
marriage in the air.' "
Dorcas Society.
The Dorcas Society of the Chris
tian church met at Mrs. Walker's
home on Beach street Thursday.
After a business meeting in which
the ladles planned a bazaar to be
held In December, games were played
of a nature to require some good
guessing. W. L. Melllnger received
the prize for the best guesser, and
since all the ladies received a sample
of his nice box of candy, no one was
disappointed. Mrs. Beebe received
the booby prize, a handsome black
tabby cat that waved a welcome
greeting to all present with his tail.
Splendid lefreshraents were served
and music rendered by the Misses
Mildred and Lola Walker.
Those present were as follows:
Mesdames Alva Rowley. McAllister,
Porter, Haskins, Caldwell, Wright.

Two Days' Offering
At Vining Theatre
A Famous Players picture with
Frank Losee in the leading role Is
tonight's Vinins attraction. "The
Evil Thereof" is a screen philippic
against the evils of money that is
spent only for self-gratification, re
gardless of the human cost at which
It is bought. The photoplay traces
the history of three hundred-dollar
bills, which are obtained by crime,
by suffering and by the sweat of the
brow, and which find their way to
a gay and reckless member of the
idle rich, who gives the bills to some
guests at a risque party in the form
of souvenirs. As each guest picks
up the bill, its history is depicted on
the screen.
Ann Pennington, famous star,
conies Tuesday night in "Susie Snow
flake," a story of the musical com
edy world which by its uniqueness is
bound to attract.
Miss Pennington's diminutive stat
ure, her tremendous black eyes, her
Indescribably appealing personality
and her genuine histrionic ability
which have already won her the fore
most rank among musical comedy
stage stars will unquestionably as
sure her an equal success on the
screen. There Is something Irre
sistibly appealing about "Susie," and
Miss Pennington has caught the
charm of this little dancer who scan
dalizes her maidenly aunts and sets
a whole town agog when she brings
her Broadway ideals into the com
munity. Wednesday.

Appeal for
Immediate Relief
Armenian women and children are
eating dogs and dead animals to pre
vent starvation in the Arabian desert
and have even In some Instances
been driven to cannibalism by the
lack of food in the districts to which
they have been deported by order
of the Turkish government.
Letters just transmitted through
official channels to the American
Committee for Armenian and Syrian
Relief from the trustworthy ob
servers in interior Turkey make this
indisputable. Previous letters from
these sources, received by Charles R.
Crane, treasurer of the committee,
No. 70 Fifth avenue, New York, re
ported that tens of thousands of the
Armenian women and children near
Aleppo and Dor el Zor, one of the
center of extensive marsh kinds, the
other on the fringe ot the Arabian
desert, were eating grass to keep
from death and that thousands died
A letter dated September 3. and
just received from Dor el Zor, says,
in part:
"Tell our missionaries that their
college children young and old, are
dying of hunger. To look at them
breaks one's heart. Many pure
young girls are driven by hunger to
seek refuge at the hearths of Arab
ian men to whom they are sold for
bread. Mothers wander about in de
spair to find bread for the little ones,
young people weakened by hunger,
appear like old people, prematurely
aged. We must dally buy back at
least three or four young girls, else
they will be completely lost.
"The people kill and eat the street
dogs. A short time ago they killed
and ate a dying man. A women cut
off her hair and sold it for bread.
I saw a women in the street eat the
clotted blood of an animal. Up till
now all fed themselves with grass
but that, too, is now dried up. Last
night w came to a house, the occu
pants of which had eaten nothing
for three days. The wife had a child
In her arms and tried to give it a
crumb of bread to eat. The child
could eat no more: it groaned and
died in her arms.
A mother threw herself Into the
Euphrates after she had seen her
child die of hunger. A father did
the same. The people we meet In the
street look hardly like human be
A letter from Hamam, Dated Sept.
1, reads:
"If It goes on like this, with star
vation all about us here in the 1000
Armenian tents, the greater part of
the people, perhaps all, will perish
of hunger and misery. The people
fight for the clotted blood of killed
animals. They gnaw the bones which
they find: they look for grains of
oats in refuse. They also eat the
flesh of fallen animals and men.
Many who cannot bear It any longer
throw themselves In to the Euphrates.-'
A third letter received from Sep-
ka. and dated August 27, says:
"I ask aid of you for a crowd of
more than 2500 miserable, hungry
people, dried up to skeletons. Many
die of hunger every day. The grave
diggers are always busy. The groans
and lamentations in the market place
in the streets and out in the quiet
desert, give our hearts no rest."
Every citizen Is earnestly request
ed to contribute to a fund now being
raised for the relief of the Armen
ians and Serbians. Contributions
may be left at McNair Brothers drug
store or with the Beaver Realty com

The Southland
The Administration
(From the Chicago Tribune of
October 12.)
Mr. Vance McCormlck, democratic
national chairman, confines his lat
est dally effort to be interesting, at
whatever cost of accuracy, to a de
nial that the south has been espec
ially favored In the division of pork
by the democracy. He makes the
error of specifying too precisely and
names the good roads grab as a sam
ple of fairness.
Opportunely there arrives the
Danville Commercial-News, which
has made an analysis of the good
roads grab, and is aware that Mr.
Wilson is soon to make one of his
famous r.onpolitical speeches in In
dianapolis before a good roads con
gress. The Danville paper Is sure
that Mr. Wilson will discuss the
good roads bill "with real emotion."
Accordingly it presents him with ma
terial for his speech, pointing out
how the initial $5,000,000 Is divid- j
"Of this sum Indiana will receive
1135.747." saye the Commercial-i
News. "Indiana has a population
of 2,700.tn0. Being an enterpris
ing state, her total valuation is $5,
194.000,000. Because of her enter
prise Indiana has become a shining
mark for the democratic taxgather
er, and last year she paid into the
federal treasury In ordinary Inter
nal revenue taxes, in 'emergency'
taxes, and in corporation and per
uana! Income taxes the not incou- ,
siderable sum of $30,947,000.
"By way of comparison It is inter
esting to note that the state of Geor
gia has a population of 2,609,000,
almost the same as Indiana's. The
valuation of Georgia is, however,
only $2,382,000,000, a little less
than half that of Indiana, because
Georgia is not so enterprising by
half as Indiana. Georgia also is
much more niggardly in her contri
butions to the federal treasury, for
in the last year she paid only $1,
370,000 to Uncle Sam as against the
more than thirty millions paid by
"Yet Georgia will get from Mr.
Wilson's lavish hand $134,329 of
federal load money, or only $1,418
less than Indiana gets. Mr. Wilson
and his democratic congress have
mulcted Indiana about thirty times
as hard as they did Georgia, yet they
have given Georgia practically the
same sum from the public roads
It is mentioned that Illinois has
double Gtorgia's population and a
valuation seven times as great. It
pays fifty times as much to the gov
ernment and obtains less than twice
as much. Ohio has twice Georgia's
population and four times its valua
tion. It pays thirty times as much
and In return receives less than
twice as much.
"We think that the president,
with his well known felicity of ex
pression, can take these figures and
make a mighty interesting speech
out of them." continuea the genial
Commercial-News. "We are sure
that the people of. Indiana, Illinois
and Ohio would be Interested in the
Too good to think of
sermon which Mr. Wilson could
preach from bis text. We supply
this material and we make this sug
gestion to the president wholly out
of the goodness of our hearts."
Will Sell Timber
From Indian Land
Klamath Falls Herald: A plan for
selling from the Klamath Indian res
ervation each year enough timber to
yield approximately $200,000 is an
nounced by Superintendent William
B. Freer. The announcement come
followjng the visit here recently of
J. P. Kinney, assistant forester, and
really the biggest man in the fores
try department of the United States
Indian service.
It is expected that within two
months advertisements will be pub
lished asking for bids on several
unit 8 of Indian timber.
The timber is to be sold to provide
money for the Indians to use in buy
ing breeding stock and implementa
and generally Improving their homes.
The Klamath Indians now potential
ly are very wealthy, but their wealth
consists of land and timber. It Is
the scheme of the Indian service to
sell some of this timber for wealth
that can be used now by the Indians.
There is no intention of selling any
large portion of the timber at once,
but enough annually to bring in
about $200,000.
Another Color
0nGnzzly Hills
Another color black has been
added to the many famed shifting
colors of the Grizzly hills across bear
creek from the city. The black is
due to the fact that J. Arant is burn
ing off vast quantities of foxtail.
Green grass will soon spring up and
furnish feed for Arant's flock of 300
sheep which he brought over from
Klamath county. Mr. Arant Is now
living in the Walte bungalow acros
th,e creek from the city.
