Mary Jane Watches Billy Robin.
SL'CH a busy tlnre as there was In
the garden during those early
The boy who lived In the hous.i raked
up all the paths and carried out all
l he rubbish that had accumulated dur
ing the winter. Mary Jane straight
ened vines and sorted out seeds and
helped her father on tne day when he
came home early to dig in the garden.
How Billy Robin did love those dig
ging days! Father turned over great
piles of moist, brown earth and, fortu
' nately for Billy, Mary Jane could not
work as fast as he could, so there was
plenty of time for Billy to gobble up a
worm or two before Mary .la no broke
up the big lumps of earth and allowed
the worms to hide.
"Look at him!" laughed Mary Jane,
when Billy had been especially bold
and greedy; "he took that worm from
under my very nose almost !"
Father stopped his digging and
looked at Billy. "Of course, I can't
be sure.'" he said, "but that !ooks to
me like the same robin who lived in
the apple tree last year. If it is. It's
no wonder he's not afraid of you. He
know you're an old friend. Let's wait
a minute and watch. He's eyeing that
other worm over theie. Let's see what
he does with it.
So father stood still and leaned on
his spade and Mary Jane leaned on
her rake 'just the same way, and they
both watched Billy Robin.
He didn't seem to mind one bit; or
perhaps he didn't notice the attention
he was attracting he was so busy
He watched one big, wriggling angle
worm as it squirmed ltfcelf out of a
clod of earth and then, Just when it
wan free, he darted down anM caught
it In hi bill.
"Now, watch and fcee how he eats
it!" whispered father.
But, dear me! Billy Robin didn't eat
it at all!
He new away as fast as ever he

Billy sat in their newly mad.j nest.
She saw him coming and was leady

Xew Hippodrome Opens Today.
TODAY figures prominently in the
amusement calendar, for it marks
the. opening of the Hippodrome,
the new Ackerman & Harris playhouse
at Broadway and Yamhill. The Hip
podrome, formerly the Orpheum, is one
of the finest of Portland theatres and
its transition from a straight vaude
ville house to a family theatre, half
vaudeville and half motion picture In
its program of entertainment, is a new
departure that is expected to appeal to
local theatre patrons.
The new Hippodrome will give con
tinuous shows until 11 p. m. Begin
ning at 1 o'clock, this will be the daily
program from this time on wit.i
changes, of bill twice a week, on Wed
nesday and Sunday. Six vaudeville
acts and six reels of motion pictures
'will be the "prevailing offering and
today's opening bill, which runs until
Sunday, looks like a strong attraction.
To emphasize the family feature of
the Hippodrome, Mrs. June Nisten had
been engaged as matron to look after
the young folks. Mrs. Nissen is well
known in local clubwomen circles and
she also holds a position with the

Play Protests Against Xew Religions
The title, "The Sins of Men," car
ries with it very little idea of the
unique character of this recent Fox
release. In which Dorothy Bernard is
featured, along with Stuart Holmes.
The play, which opens at the Majestic
tomorrow, is an argument protesting
the fallacy of new forms of religion.
A Germnu philosopher evolves a new
creed, called "Myself," in which each
individual's self is made, so far as that
individual is concerned, the dominant
idea. It is a creed of selfishness. In
its development unhappiness overtakes
the man who originated it, his family
and al 1 others who accepted it. Another
point brought out is that a false theory
once started pursues its course beyond
the control even of him who evolved
it and despite his subsequent efforts
to refute it when its fallacy has be
