The following article taken from a'
Portland paper will be of interest here,
where Miss Fisher played in stock sev-i
era! years ago:
"A stranded theatre company in Sil- i
verton, Ore., guve Margarita Fischer'
her first opportunity to busk in the;
limelight, where she has remained ever '
since. It wns back in ism when John
Fischer and his family ran the Com
mercial hotel in Silverton, and Mar
garita in her early teens, -.nown then
as "Babe," waited on table. One of
the stranded actors remained to wash
dishes nnd work for his board around
the establishment. i
An amateur thentricul company was
the result of a desire on his part to
get out of town and Margarita was
forced into service. Without previous
training and with only a few rehears-j
ills she showed a talent for acting that
was remarkable. Mr. Fischer sold his
hotel and went on the road with his
wife, his two daughters ti one or
more real actors, according to circum
stances. Posters announced rfint Margarita
was the youngest lending woman in
America and for two years or more
the family appeared through Oregon
in a variety of plays.. "Dot" Fischer,
Margarita's sister, was not considered
so much of an nctress, but she has
since proved that she, too, is possessed
of considerable histrionic talent. In
Kureku, Cnl., the "Fischer slny, " us
it was culled by the Silverton people,
was so popular that the aggregation
remained a year in stock. j
Later Margarita was in vaudeville
on Fnntnges circuit. She was then a
real actress and the Silverton people
who had seen her first appearance on
their little stage, began to be proud
of "Babe" and to hang her pictures
in prominent places. rr.e. :s now mnr-,
ried to Harry Pollard, with whom she
was associated in her vaudeville days.
But Miss Fischer has deserted the
stage for motion pictures and is now
the featured member of the Beauty
Film company. It is r jianrcularly ap
propriate name for her organization,
as lust April she won the prize nwaro
ed to the most beautiful motion picture
actress in the I'nited States.
The Fischer family now makes its
home in Santa Barbara, v.-.cre the stu
dios nf the Beauty company are locat
ed. Silverton and Oregon are proud
of their Homer Davenport and they
have reason for just pride in their
young actress who is now a favorite
with audiences nil over the country
where the Beauty films are exhibited.'
Coming as a distinct shock to her
friends here was the news of toe death'
of Miss .Icau Sherman of Ocean View,
who was drowned Sunday afternoon nt
Florence while on a pleasure trip with
friends. She was an ussistuut teacher,
in the high school at, Hip latter place.

"How did she lose her home';" asked Evelyn.
"I ll tell you about it," said daddy. "You see, this fairy lived nt tlie bottom

1'aii v Queen Xiitllie made only one request when she gave this beautiful

"Fairy Silver Spray obeyed her queen's directions for ever and ever so

leave n little brown gnome to keep bouse for her.
"But one tbiy Fairy Silver Spray's curiosity got the better of her. A
school of singing flshes was forming just outside her house, and the fairy,
tearing the peculiar noises, wag wild to bear what was going on.
"But the little brown gnome was away that day. Silver Spray listened
and listened to the noise for a long time and then ventured to the edge of the
