A. The geographical poles of tho earth
are symmetrically located with regard to
the equator, but tho magnotlo poles aro
not coincident with them nor aro they
diametrically opposite lo each other.
Prior to the recent attempt of Amund
sen to determine tho North magnetic polo,
the 'only other was by Captain James
Boss In June, 1831. who found the dip of
the magnetic needle to bo 89 degrees 69
minutes Ti seconds In latitude W degrees
5 minutes 2 seconds North and longitude
98 degrees -13 minutes S seconds West.
The South tnngnettc polo has been lo

Prof. Edward Davis and Douglas Mnrson,
Edward David Rnd Douglas Marson,
members of Lleutennnt Shackleton's ex
pedition to tho North Pole, which left
New Zealand on Januury 1, 190S. It Is be

MEETING FOB 30TH WARD
Citizens to Gather Tonight to Dis
To discuss means for tho general im
provement of tho aoth Ward, a mass
meeting of citizens will bo held tonight
In Cooper Hall, :3d and Christian streets,
under the auspices of an organization. In
which two Protestant Episcopal, six Pres
byterian and two Methodist Episcopal
churches aro uniting to further the Inter
ests of that section of tho city.
Tho meeting grew out of a movement
started by the Georgo C. Thomas Associa

of tho Holy Apostles. Tho Thomas Asso

pressed. "Are you going to do any
thing for me?"
The east breeze laughed again. He
seemed to find a good many things
to laugh about, apparently. "Why?
Do you feel in need of help?"
"Indeed, I do!" exclaimed the but
terfly so earnestly that the breeze was,
much interested. "I'm so very dis
appointed with the worldl"
"Now, that is too bad!" cried the
breeze sympathetically; "and here T
think it's such a nice worldl" And
then he thought a minute. "What is
the matter with the world? Maybe I
cm change it for you."
He seemed so concerned that the
butterfly was only too glad to tell
htm all about his dreams of summer
and abqut the flowers and warm
breezes he had hoped to find on the
The east breeze was puzzled. He
had never tried to make a butterfly
happy before, and he wasn't quite sure
about the. best way of going about it,
"I'm not sure I can make things seem
any better for you," he finally said,
"but at least I can try. How would
you like to have me help you fly?"
The butterfly thought he would like
that very much; so he hepped qn tha
east breeze's, broad back and they
started out. And just at that very
minute the sun climbed up in the
sky and spread warmth and gladness,
over the earth.

OF JEW THEME OF
New Jewish Theatre in
10th Street; Its Audience
and Players, Through the
Eyes of an American Ob
server. The curtain had llsrn on "The Kternal
Tragedy." Tho players were singing a
song In Kngllsh. Crowds were pouring
Into the capacious old Xntlonal Theatre,
at Callowhlll and 10th streets, renamed
the New Yiddish Theatre. It was tho
premlero of the play, a tiagedy by Editor
Katz, of the Jewish Dally "World. It was
an audience of Oriental typo dark
skinned, dark-eyed, dark-haired leavened
only now nnd again by fair hair and bluo
The action of tho pl.iy was well under
way, yet newcomers disturbed those
seated; men and women uhnnged their
scats; ushers argued about coupons. On
tho stuge a tiny girl, dressed as a boy,
sang "Yankee Doodlo" in Kngllsh. Tho
uudlciuo applauded. Up In a tier box sat
a girl resplendent In tho latest creation of
fashion. By her side was her antithesis
her old mother, with wig covered by a
whlto shawl. Uownstalrs quiet was com
ingslowly the whispers died down, tho
rustling of dresses and the motion of
Tho plot unfolded Itself tho eternal
tragedy of a woman's life the lifo of the
Jewess In Hus3la In times of a progrom
massacre. Tho heroine had been left in
Russia by her mother, who had become,
so far as possible, an AmrrlcanUed
Jewess. ' The daughter, during a pro
groin, had been violated by Russians.
Her father brings her to this country
and sho tells her horrible story, an only
a Jewess could tell It brokenly hyster
ically. With seemingly resistless force,
tho girl Is driven toward tho cataclysm
slowly, but with tho ceitalnty of fate
until the denouement comes.
The play Is powerful, but utterly un
sulted to the American stage. It Is heart
rending, pulsating with tho life tragedy
of tho Jewish race. Tho acting Is vib
rant, human. The audience gasps and
shudders tho women weep; the men
clench their fists as they hear tho tulo
Tho first act Is done. The curtain fulls
and the audience flies out, men, women
and children. The men smoke In the
lobby, tho women gossip and exchange
newt, the children run about.
Then tho curtain rlsesagaln. The
heroine rejects the man chosen by her
parents to hide her ahame by marriage.
3Ui refuses potntblank to "fool any
roan," Tho hero cornea and la accepted.
And so the play goes along, the audi
ence following each word with rapt at
tention, breathless and absorbed. Tho
actors throw themselves Into their work
with enthusiasm akin to genius. The
engagement breakfast Is so true to Ufa
that the tenseness of the previous scenes
Is forgotten and laughter resounds In the
To tho end the audience is swayed by
tha story. U la a study In mob psychol
ogy worthy of Munsterberg. Indrawn,
breaths reward the climaxes; gasps tho
tragic lines only the hiases for tho vll
luln are missing.
To tho outsider, the audience assumed
an ertra,terrltorIal aspect it waa of
another land, another sphere a raco
apart. And therein lies the eternal trag
edy of the Jew. In America, a part of Us
llfo. yet assimilation Is seemingly denied,
if tha Yiddish theatre audience be taken
as a criterion. It ia true tint the men
and women wero In a Philadelphia, thea
tre. It U true that English phrases wero
frequent. It is true that they dressed
as d'd other Phlladelphlans. Yet they
wtre not Phlladelphlans rather a mora
highly sentttlxed race rather a mass of
humans whose; nerve were strung more
tautly more prone to vibrate at the
slightest call of the emottoas.
So far as the acting was concerned, It,
too, waa different from that of the Amer
ican stage. Of course, gestures were
used more frequently to emphasize
points. Moet of the mummers were nat
ural, save that the hero declaimed a bit
at time. The twJna was exceptionally
good, especially in the trying scenes of
l)Wrla and s4f-4BuualatUn. 4 The
mala defect waa In the setting el the
eeeond act, in which the contrasting
eelera of walW and drap-rtee were as
wartutlc as anytMS. seen to the thea
tre for many a dy.
