HAVOC WROUGHT BY GERMAN
SHELL THAT HIT PARIS CHURCH
IS DESCRIBED BY AMBASSADOR
LIKE "SOME HORRIBLE SHAMBLES"
Secretary Of State Receives
Report From Mr. Sharp On
Good Friday Tragedy Caus
ed By Long-Range Enemy
Gun Nearly 100 Killed
The Secretary of Slate has receiv
ed from Ambassador Sharp, In Paris,
a graphic report of his visit to the
Bcene of the horrible tragedy which
occured on the afternoon of Good Fri
day in a church by the explosion of
a German shell projected from far
back of the enemy lines a distance of
more than seventy miles. The appall
ing destruction wrought by this shell
Is, as the ambassador remarked, prob
ably not equaled by any single dis
charge of any hostile gun in the
cruelty and horrors of its results. In
no other one spot in Faris, even
where poverty had gathered on that
holy day to worship, couW ; 'struc
tion of life have been so via.
Nearly 100 Mangled Corps, s
Nearly a hundred mangled corpses
lying in the morgues, with almost as
many seriously wounded, attested to
the measure of the toll exacted. . Far
up to the high vaulted arches, between
the .flying buttresses well to the front
of the church, is a great gap in the
wall from which fell upon the heads
of the devoted worshippers many tons
of solid masonry. It was this that
caused such a great loss of life.
As the ambassador entered the
church, where but a few hours before
had been gathered the worshippers,
he could easily picture the scene that
followed the explosion. The amount
of debris remaining just as it foil on
the floor covered the entire space be
tween the lofty columns supporting
the arches at each side. Only a
miracle could have saved from death
or serious injury those who escaped
the falling mass. The scene was that
of some horrible shambles and it was
not until well Into the night that all
the bodies were recovered. Upon the
floor in many places could still be
seen the blood of the victims, among
whom were many prominent and well-to-do
Swiss Secretary Killed
The ambassador called to express
his sympathy to his Swiss colleague,
whose lifelong friend, the secretary
of the Swiss Legation, was killed
leaving the church. The minister was
deeply affected as he spoke of the
great loss to him through the secre
tary's death. The secretary was well
known la Washington, where he serv
ed with the Swiss Legation from 1902
to 1904, and was very highly esteem
ed by all who knew him.
In conclusion, Mr. Sharp says that
the exceptional circumstances under
which this tragedy occurred, both a
to the sacred character of the day
and the place, have greatly aroused
the indignation of the people of Paris
toward an enemy who seeks to destroy
human life without regard to the im
munities prescribed by the laws ot
civilization and humanity, and instead
i of terrorizing the people the shells
of the great cannons, as well as the
bombs dropped from the German
aeroplanes, only serve, to strengthen
the resolve of the French to resist to
the last man, if necessary, the Inva
sion of such a foe.

Marguerite Clark in the Second
"Sub- Deb" Story, "Bab's Burglar"
Marguerite Clark will be seen on
the screen of the Orpheum theater
in the second of Mary Roberts Rine-
hart's " sub-Deb" stories, "Dab's
Burglar." The first was "Bab's
Diary," and a more delightful, re
freshing comedy-drama had never
been seen on the screen than "Bab's
Diary." The second of this series,
"Bab's Burglar" promises to be as
rich in pretty romance and clever
comedy ns the first. It Is unneces
sary to venture the statement that
Miss Clark is "at her best" in this,
her latest picture. She is always at
her best, and In this picture she
leaves room for no exceptions to the
rule. J. Searle Dawlcy, who excep
tions to the rule. J. Searle Dawlcy,
who has directed Miss Clark's most
popular screen plays, is responsible
for this, her latest. In the support
ing cast are: Leone Morgan, Rich
ard Barthelnes, Frank Losee, Gabriel
O'Madigan, Helen Greene, William
Hinckley and Guy Coombs. In order
to economize, Bab buys a roadster,
explaining that "it will save shoe
leather." The roadster saves "shoe
leather," but it does not save a milk
wagon, and several gallons of milk
which she succeeded in upsetting in
one of her "joy rides.". At last she
hits upon the idea of using her road
ster as a "jitney," and carries passen
gers to and from the station. She
gets, as a passenger a mysterious
young man, whom she suspects as a
burglar. A reward is offered for the
capture oft he mysterious burglar
who had terrorized the neighborhood,
and Bab determines to get the reward.
Her older sister is anxious to marry.
The young man whom she suspected
of being the burglar was none other
than her sister's beau, and Bab had
prevented an elopement that had been
planned. " , i-itn

featured role under the Fox banner.
He presents the part of Dick Durand
in "Durand of the Bad Lands", a typi
cal Western picture. Dustin better
known as "Dusty," Is the brother of
William Farnum, who needs no intro
duction to the picture-going public.
Dustin lias been seen in Fox produc
tions bcofre but never in the featured
role. "Durand of the Bad Lands"
presents everything Western and a
more likable good-bad-man would he
hard to find than Dustin Farnum as
Dick Durands. Tom Mix, a Foxfilm
comedy star, whose stunts with the
lariat and astride a bucking bronco,
have been registered on the screen
in many photoplays, is In the support
ing cast. Winifred Kingston has the
leading feminine role. Richard Stan
ton directed. The story was written
by Maibelle Heikes Justice, who is

laws of self preservation by retuM,
Ir.g from across the border where he

girl from Indians, the sheriJE get;,
1 im and he is found guilty o'. a'l trie
past offenses which had been commit
ted in that country. The girl Is the
daughter of the Governor and he finds
after investigation that the young out
law is not guilty of the many murders
for which he had been convicted and
grants to him a pardon. If you like
Western pictures and good strong
action come and see Dustin Farnum
in "Durand of the Bad Lands," to be
shown at the Wailuku theater on
Monday of next week.
"Son of His Father"
In a burst of dogged almost vicious
determination, Gordon Carbhoy ac
cepts the situation and a check for
$5,000, when his father calls his light
spoken bluff, "If I had 5,000 I could
run it into $100,000 in six months."
Carbhoy, Senior, had admonished
his son for his spendthrift habits, and
Carbhoy, Junior, made the bluff to
lead the "Old Man" along.
The unexpected turn of events puts
young-Carbhoy on a train bound for
Alaska in quest of gold.
A little game with some card sharks
and a lively battle as a result, finally
combine to place the young fortune
hunter In the home of his rescuer,
Mallinsbee is the owner of thou
sands of acres of land and the father
of the most beautiful girl In Arizona.
Thus young Carbhoy gets his oppor
tunity. He beats his father's agent,
Slosson, not only in a huge railroad
deal but also for the hand of the most
beautiful girl in Arizona. Needless
to say the "Old Man" is proud of his
boy, '"A chip off the old block" truly
the son of his father.
All of this breezy fun, fascinating
detail and real American business
battle gives Charles Ray the best pos
sible chance to extend his wonderful
fa.. ' and add to the story, his pleas
ing personality and boyish enthu
siasm. Vola Vale is especially well adapted
to play the part of the most beautiful
girl in Arizona.
The story was adapted from the
novel of the same name written by
Ridgwell Cullum. At the Wailuku
Orpheum Saturday next. Advt.
