member of a small pioneer company
which progressed by monna of three
"bull teams" from ono mining camp
to another. They were always heart
ily received by the miners and cow
boys, who readily paid the flvo dol
lars in gold required to witness their
performance. Mr. Jefferson 'Was tho
traditional melodramatic villain, and
in tho third act was supposod to kid
nap "tho child." Tho supposed
mother, hearing Its cries, rushes
upon the scene just as ho is about to
escape, and Area a fruitless shot
from a revolver.
Upon this particular occasion all
had gone woll until this scene was
reached, and tho nudlenco, many of
whom had never beforo seen any
kind of theatrical performance,
eat as if spellbound. At tho crack of
tho mother's revolver, tho spell was
"By heaven, she missed him!" a
red-shlrted miner in tho front row
shouted, drawing his own "six-shooter"
and leaping to his feet. "Itound
to the bnck door and head him off
'fore he can git a boss, hoys:" ho
yelled, and, following him. half the
audience stampeded for ihe exit.
The excitement was f.nally allayed
by the "mother" and the villain ap

of the situation. When tlu perform

BIRDS OF PARADISE
New Guinea is the home of a large
percentage of the world's birds of
paradise. The supply of these beauti
ful birds is fast failing. Not only do
the women of Europe and America
demand feathers for their bonnets,
but the natives of New Guinea and
surrounding islands make lavish use
of the plumage as head dresses.
Sonic precautions are now taken
to prevent visitors to New Guinea
from killing the "most beautiful
birds in the world," but the native
are left alone and they continue to
deck tlUmiselvcs out in capes and
headpieces more .gorgeous than au
seen on our stage beauties or the
wives of our millionaires.

What 'would you do If you found a
man seriously injured? Would you
know the proper way to relieve hla

toward preparing Its employes for

and their work is supplemented by
