January 12 was the birthday of
Grandpa Henry Beamaa, who was 88
years of age on that day. On-account
of the inclement weather on that date
and so much 'sickness, the Post and
W. K. C. could not celebrate tho day
with him. so on March 15 the Post and
Coris went in a body of 21 and show
ered him withtpost cards. A happy hour
was enjoyed with him. Then, Grandma
Beamaa, assisted by her daughter an
granddaughter, Mrs. Grace Beaman, and
Miss Louise Beauinn, and niece, Mrs.
Hendricks, served a lunch of coffee,
cake and cheese. Mr. and Mrs. Bea
man were married l!0 years ago on the

Tricks Famous High Diver
Poring the time Henry Otto was
superintendent the production of " Un
dine" for Bluebird Photoplays, he dis
covered a high promontory on the
shores of Catalina Islands, off the
const of California, from which he
thought it would be a fine idea to have
Miss Ida Schnall make one of her just
ly celebrated high dives into the waters
of the Pacific.
Xever having won any medals as a
diver himself, Mr. Otto was a poor
judge of distance. Anyhow he didn't
know that when Miss Schuall was "Lit
tle Ida," and just beginning to dive off
the docks, that she had promised her
mother that she would never drop into
the wet for a greater height than 7o
feet anil a few inches.
But the cautions Mr. Otto knew just
enougn aooirt plunging to Know mat
from where he stood, looking down in
to the sea, that it was "too darned high
for him;" and that he had better keep
his high diving ideas to himself until
the time was propitious for leading
Miss Schnall in her one piece tight fits
to the top of the cliff and gently shove
Likewise when there were scenes to
be takeu he kept Miss Schnall away
from that particular cliff, and when
she was swimming for practice he made
her use the other side of the island- as
a "take-off." And so it came about
that when he chased Miss St'ln-all tip to
the edge of the cliff one morning when
the light was just right and the camera
was all set, the Undine of Bluebird
Photoplays got her first peek at the

a rock straight up for ,10 feet. And.
oddly enough, I can throw the same
rock, straight down, just exactly twice
as far. Now I 'II convince you by
heaving this rock (business of picking
up small stone) straight up just tlurtv
feet, and then I'll iamiu it into tho
diink and you go a'tcr it."
When they had diadged Miss Schnall
out of the sand into which she dove
through fifty feet of water when she
hit the ocean, the Captain of the barge
sr. d to Miss Sehna'1:
"By Neptune, you 'ro a wonder.
You're the first man or woman who
ever had the nerve to divo off that
cliff. It's 131 feet at low tide and
12!) feet at high tide; and it's now b"
tween tides so you cam o down just
130 feet without turning over once."
Knowing that Miss Schnall carried
her chest hidden iu medals for athletic
feats, and having viewed with admira
tion some fifty-odd trophies she had
won for her prowess
Mr. Otto went
straight from the top of he cliff to Los
Angeles and for a whole week his as
sistant directed the scenes in "Undine"
that wtire taken on Catalina Islands.
Aud that same evening Miss Schnall
wrote to her mother that she had mt
intentionally broken her promise.
Incidentally the management of the
Bligh theatre will show the picture of
this tremendous feat of high diving on
Sunday and Monday as one of the sen
sational scejies in " Undine," the iV.ivy
film for which the great leap was made.

Walthall Teaches Raven
to Say 'Nevermore' for
Henry B. Walthall, who plays the
lead in Kssanay's six-act feature.
'The Kaven," adapted from George
C. Hazclton's romnncc of F.dgar Al
lan Poe, was greatly impressed by the
intelligence dislpayed by the raven
brought from northern Canada for use
in tho production.
Mr Walthall spent hours teaching
the bird to talk, for in the protoplay
the raven plays a most important part
and is supposed to articulate the word
"nevermore" several times.
The raven took a great fancy to Mr.
Walthall, in whose room the bird's cage
was hung. Every morning, noon and
evening, Mr. Walthall fed it and it
Ails not long before the raven, could
say "nevermore" just, as easily as a
parrot says "cracker." Furthermore,
Mr. Walthall's patient efforts resulted
in getting the raven to say "never
