something that has never been done
before, for the handling of this one

POST SEASON AT CRESCENT.
Motion Pictures and Popular Enter
Announcement comes from the man
agement of the Crescent Theater that
the season there will close with the
engagement of "Brewster's Millions."
This early closing makes the pres
ent season the shortest in a number of
years, and for this reason Manager
Campbell has signified his intention
of inaugurating an Indefinite post-sea
son of the latest and best subjects in
high-class motion pictures and popu
lar entertainers for the many patrons
of this house. Mr. Campbell is en
tertaining this proposition from the
fact that so many children and la
dies have come to regard the Cres
cent as their favorite playhouse, and
he wants to keep it open for their
benefit. After a week of renovation
and overhauling he expects to open
the Crescent to the public with a mat
inee of motion pictures on Easter
Sunday, giving frequent changes of
program through the season that is
Performances will begin at 2 o'clock
p. m., and run continuously until 10:30
o'clock, with aA intermission of two
hours before the night performances.

The Names of MaN.
Moses of Scriptural fame Is called
by eight different names in various
places In the Bible. Bathia, the daugh
ter of Pharaoh, called him Moses be
cause she drew him out of the water.
Jochebed, his mother, called him Jeku
thlel, saying, "I had hoped for him."
Miriam, his sister, called him Jared
because she had descended after him
into the water to see what his end
would be. Aaron called his brother
Abi Zanuch because his father had de
serted their mother. Amram, the fa
ther of Moses, called the boy Chabar
because he was again reunited to the
mother of the lad. Kehath, the grand
father of Moses, called him Abigdor
because God had repaired the breach
in the house of Jacob. The nurse of
the grandfather of Moses called him
AM Socho because he was once hid
den three months in the Tabernacle.
All Israel called him Shemaiab be

Dealing with the weaknesses of ac

contemporary relates a good story of
Frederick Lemaltre, the celebrated ac

"dot" and the trousseau. "Dot," it
may be observed, Is the Frepch equiv

The Cry of the Leae.
The cry of the loon is one of the
strangest, weirdaest sounds in nature.
Those who have heard it can scarcely
wonder that It has so often been woven
into sons and legend.
A blood red ring hun round the moon.
Hunsround the moon. Ah. mel Ah, mel
I heard the piplng of the loon,
A wounded loon. Ah. me!
And yet the eagle feathers rare

Almost all writers who have attempt
ed to descrlbe the cry of this bird have
lkened It to unmirthful laughter.
Thus Mr. Vernon Bailey, speaking of
the sound, descrlbes it as follows:
"Oly on the lonely lake In the heart
et the woods do you get the startling
thrill of the loon's wild cry--one clear,
piercing note or a log, quavering, de
msnacl laugh that to the timid s
masts a heard of sesaming panthers."

When Bjornson Died.
BJornson's son, in describing the last t
hours of his father, writes: "Now and
then the bright flame of his humor
flickered up. The doctor felt his pulse
and said it was good. With his face
beaming with humor he turned toward
us and said. 'I am the first man to die
with a good pulse.' He said one even
ing-and it seemed as if an old wise
man was speaking with the weight of
experience, 'Now I could write-yes,
now I could write, for I have been in
the realms of death and have felt the
pain that attends death.' And when
all of us thought that the indifference
of death was upon him-my mother,
who always gave him his food, which
he would receive only from her, stood
at the bedside with a brooch on her
breast which she had worn at her con
firmation-then he opened his eyes and
looked at her. He smiled, lifted his
hand and touched the brooch. This
was the last sign to the outer world he
was able to give."
A Cold Ride.
All through his life Senator Dolliver
of Iowa had a horror of fast trains
and possible railroad wrecks. Once he
was on a train with Vice President
Dolliver awoke in the middle of the
night, and It seemed to him that the
train was going at terrific speed. He
climbed out of his berth and, arrayed
only in his pajamas, started down the
length of the train to find the con
ductor and ask him to order the train
run at less speed. It was a cold night,
but the senator did not mind that until
the door of his car snapped shut and
locked behind him and he found that
the door of the next coach was also
locked. He rode sixty-five miles locked
out in the cold of the vestibule before
he could wake up anybody to let him
in. Mr. Fairbanks finally heard his
cries for help and rescued him.-New
Neooks and Legs of Animals.
With few exceptions there is a mark
ed equality between the length of the
necks and of the legs of both birds and
quadrupeds, and whether they be long
or short is determined chiefly by the
place where the animal must go for
its food. This is especially noticeable
in beasts that feed constantly upon
grass, in which case the neck has just
a slight advantage in that it cannot
hang perpendicularly down. Croco
diles, lizards and fish have practically
no necks. Fowls that feed in the
water also ofer an example of this
correspondence between the members,
with the exception of swans and geese
and some Indian birds, which gather

case and,,poticing that the judges were
paying no attention to him, said, "As
the president is falling asleep I sus

just woke up and cried, "And I sus

forever and ever," and, gathering up
his brief and cap, he left the court
and never aplpeared again.

was more vigorous. Seeing that the
president and the assessors were all
asleep, he stopped, and, dealing a tre

He Had a Claim.
In a certain town was a young law
yer whose father was very rich and
who had been sent to an eastern law
school. Since his graduation he had
done nothing except open an office be
cause he had plenty of money. This
young lawyer was proposed for mem
bership in the local fire company.
"We cannot elect him," one of the
members protested. "The constitution
of our company says that the mem
bers of it must sleep and live here in
the city, and he lives out of town on
a farm and not in the city at all. He
would be of no value at all in case of
a Are at night. He doesn't sleep here
"No," replied his proposer; "it is true
he doesn't sleep here at night, but he
sleeps here in his office all day."
And they elected him on that ground.

The Simple Maid.
'Twas in a simple country town, and 1
the maid of all work was simple and
innocent in sympathy. When she re
turned from shopping half a sovereign

Chutney was naturally incensed.
"Go back to.each shop, you careless
girl," she told the weeping maid, "and
tell them you are halt a sovereign

give it you."
Susan went and was back again in
half an hour. Entering her mistress'
sanctum, she laid five half sovereigns
on the table before her. Faithful as
always, she had carried out Mrs.
Mango-Chutney's instructions to the
letter, and each shopkeeper, fearful of
doing wrong and hurting a fellow crea

the bewildered girl.-London Answers.

suddenly through the stillness of the

half a mile away, came a low and ris- I

The Speeootled Bear.
The spectacled bear of Ecuador is
so called because of a patch of white
around each eye, which makes the
animal look as though bhe was peering
through a pair of great spectacles.
In size and general color the spee
tacled bear looks not unlike the Ameri
can black bear. But its hair is very
shaggy. At each side of the bhead is a
white bar, which gives the animal the
appearance of wearing a halter. But
the most distinctive feature is the
white around the eyes.
