regaining her place in society when
once she has forfeited . her so-called
rights whether innocent or guilty Ins
formed the theme of many dramas but
never has the story been placed in
so attractive a form as in "The Temp
tation of Olga." The leading charac
ter, that of Olga, a Red Cross nurst
is one worthy of the attention of th
best actresses. Running as it does
the whole gamut of human emotion, it
probably has no equal in the Englis'i

Miss Virginia Jeffries, supported by
the best company she has ever had.

About 40 of the railroad men of the

McCombs building and a very pleasant
time was enjoyed. Preceding the serv
ing of the supper, a short business
session was held and 1t was decided
to continue the organization of the
Tri-City Railroad men and a committee
was appointed to plan for broadening
the order out to some extent and -to
make it more like the orders in the
larger cities. Following the banquet
a number of those present were called
upon for informal speeches.

school trustees and officers, superin
tendents and others in authority, and.
even with regulating, the appointment
of teachers in many districts, the
school book trust is fighting for its
life against the savage assaults of a
stclion of the Minnesota leg!.;lature
which is determined to force some
measure of relief from present conili-
tions. Minnesota is paying from 40
to 110 per cent more for its books than
either Kansas or Ohio.
Practical evidence of trust manipu
lation of school affairs was brought
out. in weeks of careful investigation
by a legislative committee. The facts
indicated'that in many sections the
trust appoints its teachers, superin
tendents and officers and controls the
situation as it likes.
The chief protest against the trust
is not the quality or price of its books,
but the startling frequency with which
school boards decide upon sweeping
changes. Books have been adopted for
some ytars back, introduced into tho
schools and swept out before the
pages fhowed thumb marks, by the in
troduction of now books of the same
kind, generally upon arguments (hut
