Ject of hlthi .
. Brig. Gen.. Ciareaee Edwards, chief
of the bureau of insular affairs and in
timate friend of president Taf tj is one
of the most popular men in public life
In Washington. - ' - . - ;
When General Edwards was at' Hot
Springs, Va., some of the natives In
troduced him to a very excellent drink,
the principal" ingredient of , which"was
champagne. The general sampled It
and found It to his liking. ' ' He told a
newspaper correspondent about it and
proposed that they try It. ;
.The Invitation was intended only for
that "particular correspondent, hut, be
ing an -unselfish person he wished to
let his friends In on the' sampling
proposition.' ! v..
, ."Edwards Is going to Introduce me
to a new kind of drink," he informed,
the fellow-workers. We are now on
the -way to the bar.' ' Pass the word
along the line and round the boys up.
I'll hold him until you arrive." - .
f, The general and 1 the ;correspondent
walked into the bar and gave their or
ders. Pretty soon the rest of the cor-respondents-droppedinto
the room In
a careless sort of manner. All ot them
took occasion to walk' over and say
"Howdy" to the general. - - '
- "Join ms' said the general : to
first two who arrived. - -They did.
couple -more arrived. : . '
"Join-, us;" said the generaL
. They "did.. . and , as they Joined there
was a stream of pencil-pushers crowd
ing through the doors with mote out
side, waiting .or . a: chance, to, get in.
The' general looked .them over, gazed
reproachfully, at the. man who was in
tended to be his only guest, ana tnen
remarked to the bartender. .
"Make enough of those' concoctions

New York another now famous actress
. was following a similar course ' in
Philadelphia, only a hundred miles
" away. ' - - -
. This girl bore a name honored in
American stage annals. She was Ethel

". more and Georgie Drew Barrymore. On
; her mother's side she had the blood of
the famous Drew family. Mrs. John
.' Drew was her grandmother John and

v- family that this one girl should not fol

marked talents that it was impossible
to deny the trend of the Drew blood,
and Ethel went on the stage to become

Folks Wondered. 'But the . answer
was simple. .Miss Marlowe had spent
t hef entire youth as a student.- It is
-:true that her-researches had not been

i,-was, in fact, another dweller te a con-:l-vent,..

Mrs. Fiske has taken a dominating
place as perhaps the most modern of
all our actresses. :
She , was called the - - "American
Duse" when the noted Italian was Just
building up her fame in this country,
and the title has steadily clung to her,
and deservedly. -
Mrs. Fiske got her first ideas of life
in the quiet convent. , Perhaps she
couldn't have gone right on -the stage
as an actress of the: great modern
parts, as soon as she .came Into the
world again from the walls of -.her
place of retreat. It took some little
time, some getting Into . the ' current.
But the actress says that the contem
plative atmosphere of the convent Is
the right place to get the ideas prop
erly" fixed so that in mature, contact
with .any art problem It is possible to
follow the right - ideas, first exerting
the intellect to- get the right concep
tion, then following -the direction to
which that conception points,,.
As the' life of the convent teaches
above all things cbedtence, the actress
who Imbibed her early ideas there is
pliable not- only to-the- will- of other
teachers who know, but" also to the
artistic dictates of her own conscience,
i- Margaret Anglia never-In her youth
figured that life would -lead aer .Ube

'-.i Improving Americans.--
"Nothing is fixed but the certainty
of change," said Goethe, and We know
that the future .American will repre
sent a change. He may be taller or
shorter or. thinner or fatter than the
American of today, but there is noth
ing In the' existing state of society
and we use society in its broad sense-
to indicate that he will not be better
in many ways. Confidence in this is
based largely on the" evident determi
nation of the American of today, to
leave our institutions and our Ideals
better than he found them. "Every
American native . or foreign born
wants his children to have a better
education than it was possible for him
to- secure. He wants to have, his
children live In a community of higher .
standards and ideals than he has; he
wants betterment in local, state and
national conditions ; and the result of j
the want will be improvement and
demand by his children for still great-'
er - improvement. tr : Paul Pioneer 1
