' Faulty Enpllth.
slipshod use of English has been
faTorlte charge npaliist American writ
ers by tlielr Eugllsh cousins. The lat
est accusation is that we have gone so
frr as to force the English themselves
to use our slang. But Dr. Rosslter
Johnson has no- dllnculry In showing
that even classic English writers are
guilty of clumsy and Incorrect usages.
If this is the case with makers of Eng
lish in the slow and careful process of
book writing, the critic should not be
quite so captious concerning the slangy
or faulty English that creeps into the
American newspaper and periodical
produced under a degree of pressure
entirely foreign to a writer of books.
Dr. Johnson ranges over the field of lit
erature and shows by striking exam
ples how M!icaulay, Ruskin, De Quln
cey, Tennyson, I.ecky, Thackeray, Hal
lam and ninny others have split tlielr

HOME OF THE BIG TREES,
The following story was told by a
famous New York wit recently: A
party of skaters were once progressing
at considerable speed down a certain
frozen river in Canndn when, to the
hofrror of his companions, one of the
")arty"was seen to skate straight into
a hole In the ice. Before he could stop
himself he had fallen through it, and
the sharp edge of the Ice cut hla head
clean off his shoulders. The speed at
whlcli he was going, however, caused
his hend to skim along the top of the
ice, while the rest of his body traveled
at an equal speed beneath It, until, by
a stroke of good luck, the severed por
tions met at another hole farther down
nnd. Joined so exactly thnt the unfor
tunate man came out of his accident
with nothing worse than a severe cold.
Forest Giant In the Sequoia and Gen
eral Grant National Parka.
The Sequoia and General Grant Na
tional parks, the home of the big trees,
are situated in Tulnre and Fresno
counties, Cal., and are celebrated
mainly for the great groves of the big
trees which are scattered through
them. Sequoia National park may be
reached from Visalhi, thence by way
of electric railway to Lemon cove,
thence forty miles by stage or private
conveyance to Camp Sierra, In the
park. General Grunt National park
can be best reached from Sanger,
thence by automobile, stage or private
conveyance, a distance of forty-six
tulles to the park.
The streams and lakes In these parks
afford splendid trout fishing, boating
and batlilug. The waters are all pure
and fit to drink. The forests contain
the largest, oldest, tallest and most
valuable trees iu the world. Aside
from the giant Sequoia, there are other
forests of piue, fir, cedar and many
deciduous trees that are truly royal.
There are many shrubs, wild flowers,
ferns and mosses of superb beauty,
while frolicking wild nnlmiils and
beautiful song birds are another en
joyable feature of the parks.
In four of the groves certain trees
within theiu have been named, while
In all other groves they have not The
General Sherman tree was discovered
by James Wolverton. a hunter and
trapper, on Aug. 7, 187!, at which time
he named the tree In honor of-General
Sherman, under whom he had served
during' the war. The General Grant
tree was named by Airs. Lncretla I.
Baker, who was a member of the par
ty which camped near the tree in Au

Years One May Count Upon Living at
Any Given Age.
No statistics have been calculated
with greater care than the tables which
give the exact expectation of life for
men and women at various ages.
These mortality tables are otlicially ac
cepted by the various states In the
United States, and ffiu them the life
insurance companies compute' their
rotes of insurance. They are ns ac
curate ns the most carefully gathered
figures can make them.
At ten years of age the expectation
of life is 48.72 years. When one has
reached tiio nge of twenty the chances
are much improved, and there Is still
an expectation of 42.20 years before
one. At the te of twenty-five 'the
average has improved, and there ore
still some thirty-nine years ahead.
For the normal man or woman thirty
years of age the average length of life
is sixty-five years. A person thirty-live
years old may count, according to these
tables, on thirty-two years more.
As each milestone is passed the pros
pect brightens. Thus at the age of
forty the prospect is for nearly twenty
nine years more, and at forty-five there
is an expectation of twenty-five more
By the fiftieth year the expectation
is about twenty-one years, and in the
fifty-fifth year It is nenrly eighteen
more. A man of sixty may look for
ward with some confidence to fifteen
more years of life, and this increases
60 that at seventy years the prospect
Is eight years. On having successful
ly passed the eightieth year there is
an expectation of about five years.

Nance O'Neill in "A Woman's Past"
In this marvelous William Fox pho
toplay, Nance O'NriH is cast as Jane
Unwley, a struggling authoress. In
the course of her efforts to dispose of
her manuscripts, she encounters the
editor of a famous magazine. Sterling
by name, who gives her employment.
Jane falls In love with Sterling, a
thorough-paced rascal, and the Inevit
able happens. Despite Jane's plead
ings, her scoundrelly employer refuses
to marry her. She leaves him and
soon afterward Wilson Stanley, a
former friend of Sterling's, fal's In
love with and marries her. Three
years later, Stanley is called to the
Philippines on Government service.
Jane and her little son live with her
fnther-in-law, waiting for the return
of Stanley. One day she meets her he-
rayer on the sfreet. He follows her
home. Wilson's father discovers the
couple in the garden in a very com-
promising altitude and turns Jane into
he street. She returns to Sterling.
Many years pass. Stanley, who has
returned home, tr'es in vain to find
his erring wife. One day, after he has
given up hope, he sees her upon the
street and follows her to the squa'id
attic where she lives In poverty with
Sterling. At sight of the man who
has ruined his home, Stanley goes
temporarily insane and, in the terrific

The Cave Man"
"The Cave Man" is novel because
it is real. It is so true to lire tnai
you shudder at the realization of it
bI'j. The story opens like the flash of
gun. It is a modern and eloquent
appeal. Haulick Smagg (Mr. KoDert
Edcson) is a coal heaver. He is un
kempt, slovenly ana almost noyisn in
Kent and Burr.
James Kent, famous for bis "Com
mentaries on American Law," was a
great admirer of Alexander Hamilton,
and when the great Federalist was
killed by Aaron Burr in a duel he be
came the implacable enemy of the lat
ter. One day long afterward when in
New York the Judge saw Burr on the
opposite side of Nassau street . He
went across the street as fast as his
years would permit aud, brandishing
his cane In Burr's face, Bhouted:
"You're a scoundrel, sir, a scoundrel,
Burr proved equal to the emergency.
He raised his hat and bowed to the
ground and then said In his calmest
professional tone. "The opinions of the
learned chancellor are always entitled
to the highest consideration."
No man who will not make a effort
for himself need apply lor ah to U
Apartment House Ethics.
"Lady? She ain't no lady!" declared

"No. She'll borrow your card table

Nuts as Food.
A Judicious use of nuts has cured
cases of indigestion by relieving the
constipation which was the cause. Bra
zils and pine kernels particularly are
rich in natural oil which gives warmth
keeps the digestive system clear and
does much toward making the skin
clear and healthy. Weight for weight
nnts contain actually far more proteld
than bread. They are a safe food for
all who have a tendency toward any
form of rheumatism, and they are also
beneficial lu cases of mental strain and
mentality. Mischief is a typical blase,
society beauty who craves excitement.
She formulates a plan and throws half
of a five dollar bill out of her window
with a note enclosed that the finder
should please ca'.l at her apartment.
Haulick Smagg finds the note and
calls for the other half of the five.
Mischief decides on an escapade: she
will win this cave man back to civiliza
tion. She will awaken a spark of
mentality In his sleepy brain. Fate
throws Mischief in his path again and
Haulick Smagg man-brute inventive
genius is again in the coils of the
coquette. What would the average
man do in a situation of this kind?
Would he sit quietly back and let fate
take its course, or woufd the instinct
that prompts man to jake his mate
assert itself? The cave man wins in
the end. Why?
"The Code of Marcia Gray"
There are many forms of moral
honor, and every woman has her own
individual code of ethics to govern
various situations. The code of Marcia
Gray, the basis for the Oliver Morosco
photoplay of that name, will win ready
sympathy. The wonderful personality
of Constance Collier as Marcia Gray
makes her part one of universal ap
peal. Every woman wi!'. find In the
great crisis In Marcia Gray's life a
niarvelously exact duplication of what
she would have to do, and experience,
should she meet the same problem.
"The Lost Bridegroom"
John Barrymore, the popular star,
who since his appearance on the
screen has played Balkan princes,
South American dictators, and assort
ed American characters, but never be
fore has been presented In the role
of a crook, adds this to his many
other photoplay adventures in the
Famous Players Film Company's pro
duction, "The Lost Bridegroom," writ

Wllliard Mack, author of "Kick In."
