Erlanger Is now being prepared for
presentation in English. The open
ing is scheduled for the latter part
Present new productions consist
principally of films, one of the most
remarkable being the second set of
Paul Rainey's African Hunt pictures,
first placed on exhibition at the
American Museum of Natural His
tory and now on view at the Casino
The "big thrill" of -this exhibit is
the killing of a male lion within a
few feet of the camera. The beast
is cornered by hounds In a thicket.
In desperation, he suddenly springs
out and charges across an open
space, straight toward the motion
picture operator, who in this instance
was Rainey himself. Within a few
feet of the camera he is stopped by a
bullet from the rifle of one of
1 Rainey'5 companions.
A novel feature of the film is a
series of views of the home life, re
ligious rites and festivities of the
Wandarobos, a tribe inhabiting an
extremely benighted section of dark
est Africa. .
Another new film presents "The
Jungle," Upton Sinclair's depiction of
Chicago packing-house horrors and
of the catastrophes which overtake
a family of foreigners who become
the industrial slaves of a sour-ham
magnate. The cast is a fine one,
George Nash doing splendid work as
the Lithuanian victim of commercial
greed, but the picture is extremely
depressing, lacking a note of humor
anywhere in its course. At the finish
views are shown of Sinclair preach
ing socialism, and of some of the vic
tims of "oppression finding solace in
a communistic colony.
THE CONFESSIONS OF A WIFE
A STRANGE MOOD. CONFESSION 192
(Copyright, 1914, by the Newspaper
A wire from Dick tells me he will
be home Saturday night and I am
going to meet him there.
I have been away from him two
weeks and it seema as though I had
been gone months.
Try as you may you can't "go
back." I had a foolish notion that
perhaps I could get away from all my
present life and be just myself, free
and alone, but I find I can't
I wonder if other women have
these moods of discontent are they
always content to be "us" and not
When I started away I felt:
Oh, to be alone:
To escape from the work, the play;
The talking of every day.
To escape from all I have done
And all that remains to do;
To escape yes, even from you
My only love and be
Alone and free. .
For the soft firelight,
And the home of your heart, my dear,
They hurt, being always here;
I want to stand upright
,,n(l cool my eyesin.the air
To see how my back can bear
Burdens to try to know
To learn, to grow.
But now Tknow:
I am only you,
I am yours, a part of you your wife;
I'have no otherlife.
I cannot breathe, cannot see
There is us but there is not me,
And worse at your kiss I grow
