"A Woman's Way," the. attraction
at the Lyceum next Monday, June
20, is a delightful comedy, delight
fully acted by Grace George and her
The story tells of the Howard Stan-'
tdns, .who like many young society
folks, are suffering from too much
money and too much time to idle
away or waste in the 'hunt for plea
sure. Marion Stanton confesses she
has been going in a bit strong for so
ciety when, perhaps, she should have
taken a more lively interest in sports,
to, which' Edward is devoted. Auto
moblling is his particular fad. And
when the play .opens he is suffering
from a sprained arm, the result of an
aii-to accident the night before..: The
newspapers. have the mere facts that
the Stanton car was found "wrecked
in a ditch and that Stanton and a
lady whose identity is unknown were
rescued by friends in another ma
chine. Rumors of divorce. appear in
glaring headlines in the afternoon
papers. Marion-remains reticent as to
just what steps she .may take, but
the family and Howard's arrive one
by one, all greatly agitated over the
dread of scandal and. notoriety. Only
to Howard does the wife admit her
intention to be divorced. Then she
asks for the name of the other woman
promising she won't use it in her suit.
lte tells her the lady is Mrs. Elizabeth
Blakemore, a rich Southern widow.
Marion immediately, suggests inviting
her to dinner, much to her husband's
astonishment. Just what the result
of this triangular meeting, or as Mar
ion calls it '-'a three-ring-circus," is to
be, not even Marion can be certain.
Oliver Whitney, an old friend of Mari
on's, is called upon to help her. His
chiefest duty lis to make most des
perate love to her when .Howard is
about. Mrs. Blakemore arrives and
Marion is extremely cordial to her.
There is an Inference in her manner
thai matters as they stand are wholly
agreeable to her, in fact she appears
eager to help Howard's case along.
By giving a man his own way without
a murmur or remonstrance she shows
him he doesn't really want it after
all. At the dinner party, which is a
family affair, Marion's brother, Bob
Grace George in "A Woman's Way" at the Lyceum June 20.
Livingston, and Howard's -brother-in
law Edward Morris and Oliver Whit
ney each recognize Mrs. Blakemore
as an old friend and to each she has
answered to the pet name "Puss."
Bob tells Marion that he cannot have
jSalie, his wife, meeting- Mrs. Blake
more, and she advises him to say this
to Howard and tell him of the little
affair he had with "Puss", at Palm
Beach. Morris, too, Is compelled by
Mariori to admit his awkward posi
tion to his brother-in-law arid tell of
his little flirtation with "Puss." The
situations are exceedingly comic and
the fun fast and furious as gradually
Howard begins to grasp, the. humor of
his own predicament. The ending is
happy, of course, for Marion shows
Howard, the. error of his. ways and
.makes Mrs. Blakemore beat an un
WASHINGTON, D. C., June 17.—
The United States senate again proved
that it had merited the characteriza
tion "House of Corporation Lords,"
when, -by a vote of. *34_to .16, it adopted
an amendment of thQ.-penat^ commit1
tee on appropriation striking but of
the sundry civil bill the house arriend
ment, which provided that no money
appropriated by this measure for the
prosecution of trusts in violation of
the Sherman act shall be expended for
suits against labor organizations.-
That the house amendment, which
had been 'introduced by Representa
tive Hughes, of New Jersey, was con
sidered dangerous to the interests is'
shown not only by the recommenda- I
tion of the Aldrichv committee, but
also by the strong support given to
the senate, committee amendment' by

What is considered b'y many as be
ing the most powerful and. eloquent
speech in behalf- of organized labor
delivered on the floor of\ the .senate,
was made in the course of the. debate
on this amendment by the blind sen
ator, Gore, of Oklahoma.. He said, in
"The proppsitipn as It comes from
the house does not seek to legalize
what is unlawful does not sfeek to
legalize violence it merely protects
individual laborers and labor, organ
izations against prosecutions for. acts
that are not within themselves un
"The prosecution- of laboring inen
for an effort to promote' their b'wn
welfare and prosperity has come down
to us from a dffrker age. In 1351, a
statute was passed by the English
parliament .which authorized justic^sL
of the peieice to fix the wages ofylsl
hOFers in England and made it a
crime' for any labQTing mah to accept
a. larger wage or "hettier, compensation
than' that pregc^|l)iB:d. by the/ justices
of' the peace. ~.
^'That statute remained in full force
and effe&t for fotir and a. half cen
turies. It was' then repealed because
the justices of the" peace Were sus
pected of too much liberality towards
the laboring men of England."
Senator Gore then traced the labor

the w'orkeirti of th$t' country had beeh
prohibited from organizing or meeting
to discuss 'their conditions of labor,

'The effort in the United States
to prosecute laboring men for attempt
ing to better thir, Own condition is
simply a relic of th,ose darker times.
We ought to have ^outlived them. W^
ought tof dast them behind usi .In^
the blazd of th^ twentiejtht century
civilization we ought not t6 adhere to
the anclert and barbarous practice of

SIMPLE LIFE FOR ME.
Give riae the fields and roses,\
Where both God and man proposes,
We shall get the best in life from
day to day
Where, away from wild delusion
And the city's mad confusion,
We can live some-as we journey,
by the way.
Where the sunshine is its brightest
And man's troubles are the lightest,
Where" nature holds its sway just
as it :«hould,v W
And the d,ir is fresh aii^kbracing
And you dbn't go thr^h life &V
And the fields produo^tho food
that's alwayis gooa^'
'Mid the•noi'se of city hustle,^
With, its never-ending bustle,
Where it seems a- game, of nevet
Where there's grasping more than
And the higher cost of living^
Where the ony thing that's cheap
is hum^n life.
Take vjie back to happy farming,
Where the atmosphere is charming,
And waters always sweet just from
From the mossy bucket drinking,,
It just pets me right to thinking,
I should be far happier than the
Life is largely what we m4ki it,
How we toit, how we take it,
But for me the, fields of .clpver and
City folks' may ilke the., glamor

But the etiuntrjf life will alw^ytt
