Lovable Stout, Stupid
Women Most Favored
By VIRGINIA RANDOLPH
HAT kind of a woiein do women like? What a queer ques.
tion I Women like all-no; not all women, of course-there
are some women who are simply iposs;ible.
The women we see across the footlights, for instance.
There are mny varieties in the orchest ra stalls alone. Those
who come with their young men seblom know the name of the
play. They talk nearly all the time, and when they are not
talking they are thinking of the walk home. We don't like
them. Then those who want to be actresse-they ill think
they were horn to the starge--we just know aire looking hIard at
us and thinking all the show peoplc should he doing domestic work. They
are Ii ulovable, too. Then there are women who are there everv MAonday
afternoon in the saine sea. Tlwy believe the villain reall y dies, and that
the leading muan1 is ia Adonis. Distance certaiily lends enchantment;
and so does the spotit. Well, we pity theni ; and pity may be akin to,
but it isn't, ,nuci in- afl'ectioni.
Wever get very fond of the women out in the lig world who try to
exploit uw, and invite us to afternoon earnivals of weak tea and sand.

us to 1 hieir friends in order to point a moral and adorn a tale. It's only
nati ral to dislike the role of llorrible Example.

Yosemite in Class by itself.
When one speaks of California the
Yosemite Park naturally conies to
mindl. As long ago as I1864- an act
of congr-ess granted the Yosemite val.
Iey and the Alariposa big tree grove
to the State of California for piublic
useo and recreation, The legislature
of California by tihe act approved
Mlarch 3, 1905, re-codled the jurisdic
tion and ownlership of this tract to
the United States, and~ only since Juno
11, 1906, has'the management of the
Yosemite National Park been under
tile control of the federal government.
rThe entire park has an area of
about 36 lby 46 miles. The Yosemite
valley, wvhich is the most frequently
visited place is about 7 miles long
and %Y mile wide. In the center of
th is valley is a level, parklke meadi
ow, thrdugh which runs the hierced
river, while on either side0 the mocun
tains rise steep andl prepitous to a
height of 4,000 fcet above the floor of
Ntumlerous streamis drop from the
edige of the cliff to the valley belowv.
The first of these as the tourist en
ters the valley is the liridal Veil Falls.
A stream fully thirty feet wide falls
a distance of 600 feet, then rushes
over a sloping ilie of debris, and~ then
drops perpiendicularly 300 feet mere.
The great waterfall In this park,
however, is the Yosemiteilsn Tes
Is a stream thirty-five feet wide, and
in the spring and early summer when
tho snow is melting upon the high
Sierra its roar can be heard all over
the valley, and the shock of the de
scent rattles the windows a mile away.
This fall is conceded by all critics
to be one of the most wonderful and
beautiful cascades in the wve;;'. Its
first fall is about 1 feet slicer
drop, then comit' 'series of cascades
partly hid110'n in which the fall is over
000 .f.1-et, and finally a vcrtical drop

From the cliffs surrounding the val
ley the scene .is one of remarkable
inspiration and beauty. At the foot
o ftho 'raveler lies the valley floor
ithe green trees an( meadows and the
win(ling river giving the effect of a
rich velvet carpet over which a line
of sIlver has been drawn; here and
there one gets glimpses of tho foam

to the valley below; on both sides of
the valley rise the great walls of
rock, sculptured by the elements into
various fantastic shapes and figures.
Trees Twenty Centuries Old.
In the Yosemite the Sequoia and the
General Grant National parks are
found the groves of big trees the like
of which are seen nowhere else in the
world. These trees grow to a height
of 340 feet and have a circumference
of over 100 feet at the base, the bark
sometimes exceeding 40 inches in

The Crater Lake National Park in
Oregon has within its borders a lake
that is unique among the naturali

which no streams flow andl which has
no visible outlet, lies in what is left

OF ABDUCTING GIRL
CHICAGO'S "ABSOLUTE LIFE"
CULT LEADER IS CONVICTED
AND FACES PRISON.
CONDUCTED A 'LOVE JUNGLE'
Strange Conglomeration of Teachings
of a So-Called Religious Cult In
Which Women Disciples of the
Apostle Became Entangled.
Chicago.--Evelyn Arthur See, re
vealer of thp "absolute life," who was
convicted by a jury in Judge Honore's
court on a charge of abducting Mil
dred Bridges, one of his girl disciples,
was released on $5,000 bail pending
the hearing of a motion for an appeal.
The penalty for the crime which the
head of the Racine avenue "love jun
gle" was convicted is an indetermi.
nate term in the state penitentiary of
from one to ten years.
Evelyn Arthur See was arrested in
his "temple" on Racine avenue Janu
ary 6, 1911, on complaint of Stephen
H. Bridges, who charged the abduc

had at one time been a follower of
See and had been made president off
the cult in return, it was assertjid., t
his financial support. M:rs. Bridges
also was a uibQ:r of the cult and at

While the state was investigating
the case the federal authorities also
took up the quest to ascertain if there
had been any violation of the "white
slave" act. See's wife sued him last
March for separate maintenance. The
Sees had been separated for years.
Following the filing of this suit the
safe in the "temple" was opened and
the "revealer's" book and Jbapers, ii
cluding the manuscript of the "Book
of Truth," were seized.
Some parts of the "]ook of Truth"
have been published. Other parts, not
published but taught to the woman
and girl inmates of the love Jungle,
have been seized by the United States
government and form the basis of a
prosecution against See in the federal
courts. The federal authorities say
the matter is unfit to send through the
