last night for sentence, every

The picture he drew brought
tears to the eyes of the little

could not save him from prison

"It is the sentence of the court
that you pay a fine of $2,000 and

An unsuccessful attempt to

the lone bandit and a somewhat
ignominious esca|ie after lie had
lieen sent tumbling down the
stairs by K. A. English, an officer
of the lodge, and K. 11. Leslie, a
member.
Mr. and Mrs. Leslie, who live
at 3119 Seventh avenue, were
among the late guests. Ascend
ing the stairway just ahead of
them was a man neatly dressed
whom Mr. Leslie saw drawing a
revolver from his pocket.
Seizing him from behind and
calling to Mr. English, who was
attending the door on the landing
above, Mr. Leslie pinned the
man's arms immovably to his
body. Together the two Yeomen
sent the would-have-been despera

stairs.
The man picked himself up and
made good his get-away down the

SHOOTS WIFE,
THEN SUICIDES
(By United Press Leased Wire.)
SEATTLE, Nov. 19. —Charles
E. Noe, ship's carpenter, shot
and killed his wife and a mo
ment later ended his own life in
her room in the Craig hotel here
today. _
Noe and his wife had been
quarreling for some time, and
last week he threw her out of
their room, after threatening to
cut her throat with a razor.
In the room a letter was
found addressed to "Dear
Friend," advising great care
lest the husband "find out, as
he was in Tacoma last week mak
ing inquiries about a man named
May."
It is the opinion of the police
that the killing followed the
finding of the letter by Noe.

"Come on!"
Who said personality didn't

There probably isn't any com
pany which has fastened charac
ter names to its player as much
as the Kssanay manufacturers.
Here are three of the players
who have , made their character
names household words and a lit
tle "inside information" about
each.
BROXCHO BILLY!
Once in a great while Gilbert
M. Anderson, one of the organ
izers of the Essanay Film Manu
facturing company—a man of
large means—likes to throw off
his popular cognomen with his
chaps and colored handkerchief
just to be himself.
"Broncho Billy," as everyone
knows him now, didn't always
have a bank account.
Just now—if stories be true —
he has money to burn, and there
can be no question of his popu
larity in the "movies."
Anderson writes many of his
own scenarios and plays practi
cally all the leads in the western
pictures put on by the Essanay
stock company at Niles, Cal.
Besides that, he is the pro
ducer.
ALKALI IKE
Ever see a photograph of our
old friend, "Alkali Ike"?
Here he is and his real name
is Augustus Carney.
It's a great big handle for a
very small pitcher. But he's full
up to the brim with humor and
sense.
Carney is one of the few mov

It's Arthur Mackley, one of the
directors of the Essanay Western

He's the big, burley, level

out of chaos.
