In offering the "Common Law,"
Montgomery E. Brewster presents
Irene Daniel and a sterling company,

Not only is the story a remarkable
one, but there are several things
connected with the company and the

first time that each actor and actress
are all of the type class. Third, the

When He Suffers A Fall

Baltimore, Md., Jan. 17
shocked by a fall to the floor of the
altar at St. Vincent's Catholic church
Caidinnl Gibbons displayed striking
nerve Tuesday morning when he iu
sisted on performing his part of the
ceremony attending the last rites ov
er the body of Rev. Desire C. Dewulf.
Immediately after the mass had been
concluded the Cardinal arose from
his seat under a canopy to don extra
vestments before blessing the body
of the dead priest.
While the robes were being placed
on his shoulders one of the priests
took the chair from under the canopy
and passed it to an altar boy, telling
him to put it in the aisle between the
body and the altar. There was a
chair in the aisle already. After
putting on the vestments the Cardi
nal, who had not seen the removal of
the chair, started to sit diwn again.
He fell to the floor.
Exclamation of suppressed alarm
broke from those on the altar, and
some in the front pews, who had
witnessed the accident, and a rush
was made to the side of the fallen
i Bill Which Will Extend The Pro

Frankfort, Ky., Jan. 17. The
House Committee on County L'nit ant!
Liquor Regulation met Tuesday night
and after hearing arguments on the
various county unit bills that have
been introduced, agreed to make a
report Wednesday recommending fa
vorably a bill which will extend the
provisions of the present local option
law to all counties alike.
The bill is the same that has been
introduced in the Legislature so
many times in recent years, but ha
been killed in committee. It is likely
that this bill will be the first to go
on the calendar in the House.

Fails to Tangle His Story, And Does
Not Ruffle His Temper, For He
Maintained His Composure.
Washington, Jan. 17. A day's
cross-examination of Senator Lori
mer before the Senate Inveoigaticg
Committee failed to develop any sen
sation. Evidently it had not tangled
his storv and certainly it did not
ruflle his temper, for he maintained
his composure throughout. '
Most of the cross-examination wa
directed to Lorimer's recital of polit
ical conditions in Illinois when the
legislature was electing a Senator in
1909, the personal associations of
Democrats with Republican and the
subsequent resasons why he believed
the Democrats voted for him. When
Loryner got to talking politics, he
eqined a few epigrams.
"The direct primary in every
northern state destroys the cohesivc
ness of the majority of the party,"
was one of them. Others were:
"I never go around t tying to piek
quarrels with people opposed to me.
I usually go and do something to off
set what they are trying to do."
"When I have anything to do. I
have a habit of getting up in the
morning and doing it."
Counsel for the committee got in
to the record the fact that after 101
votes had been cast in the legislature
on the day Loiimcr was elected, sev
en Republican Senators, who had not
voted for Lorimer, changed their
votes in his favor, making 108, which
Regarding the opposition to Gov
ernor Deneen, Lorimer declared
there were men in the legis
lature in 1909 who would have been
willing to elect Deneen Senator, if
only to get him out of the Governor's
When the committee's lawyers
tried to get him to repeat a conver

saying he could not remember more
than the substance.
