to work for it. There is certainly
no evidence of work or effort in

with the freedom of a brook over

full of laughter as It ripples, then
in soft minors it holds tears that

DETROIT, Dec. 31—An Enoch

his proposition is likely to be ac-1

three years ago to win a fortune.!
A year and a half ago a body
found in a box car was identified
as his, and recently his wife mar
ried again. Last week Margalski
returned. The trio took their case
to a court for adjustment. As the I
second marriage can be annulled,
the court thinks Margalski's propo-1
sit ion to remunerate his rival and i
take his wife is fair.

MA XINE ELLIOTT A T
"The Inferior Sex," as presented
by Maxine Klliott at the Audi
torium last night, comes far, very
far, from meeting expectations. In
fact, despite the frequent laugh
ter of the audience, the play is a
distinct disappointment. Perhaps
if we had not been expecting so
much.however, we might have been
Hut when we went to see the
great Maxine in a new play we nat
urally thought something out of the
ordinary was due. "The Inferior
Sex" Is called a farce comedy. It
is humorous only because of a cer
tain sprightliness of the epigrams
with which Is is sprinkled, and gets
its laughs only because of the
horseplay indulged in by the ac
tors. In the hands of less capable
people than Maxine,Frederick Kerr
and O. B, Clarence the skit would
he hopelessly Impossible.
