Made Money Playing
the Races
N®W YORK. Dec. 16. —The famous
Frank England, a man who has made
aa much as sso,ooo in one day, who a
taw years ago was owner o t a beauti
ful mansion and a number of fine race
koraea, has been brought Into court
hen, down and out, and starving, with
SI,OOO worth of loot on his pursou
• which he confesses he obtained by
■mashing in the door of Mrs. William
Howard, of Flatbush. an American
woman swimming champion, and rob
bing the house.
Frank England started his career
as a street car conductor, in Brooklyn.
One day in 1906 he was given an af
ternoon off, and he decided to go to
the races. He had 76 cents in his
pocket, and he decided to do some
thing he had never done before—to
hot the money! He won. He placed
all his winnings on the next race,
• and won. He continued to win, and
when he went home, he had a huge
hank roll in his pocket! No more
conductor job for him!
He became the most phenomenal
plunger in racing history, and his in
variable luck simply dumbfounded the
moat hardened followers of the horses.
In 1906, at Saratoga, he made three
beta on “Carey,” owned by a St. Louis
Sportsman. On the first bet alone
he won SIO,OOO. England’s biggest
“killing” soon followed, when he won
$60,000 on Schoolmaster, at Syracuse.
Boon the former conductor had piled
up a fortune of $250,000, had moved
his family into a beautiful mansion.'
and had wealthy friends all around
him.
But a few years later he played
■ “Toots Mooks” for a winner—and
found that his luck had changed! On
that one race he dropped s'-0.Ouo;
and he never has picked a winner
since
Today England's fortune is gone
back into the betting maelstrom
whence he drew it; his friends, too.

Choice whole wheat is separated into kernel and

Postum now comes in two forms:

Both kinds are delicious, cost per cup about the same, sold by Grocers everywhere.

The Austrian forces In Servla were
weakened that additional troops might
be sent to the army operating against
the Russians in the Carpathians. The
Servian army Immediately fell upon
and put to rout the weakened right
wing of the Austrians, and pushed on
toward Belgrade. Another portion of
the Austrian army was thrown back
toward the Drina. This drive forced
the enemy back into Bosnia, where
the Montenegrin army is reported to
have cut it off.
The sudden defeat of the Austrians
after It was believed Servla had all
but been cmdhed is one of the sur
prises of the war. It is declared, how
ever, that the Russian pressure
through the Carpathians became so
threatening And the demands that the
invasion he repelled so inslstant that
the reinforcing of this army became
necessary.
Belgrade was taken by the Aus
trians only 12 days ago after a four
months’ campaign. Valjevo was cap
tured by the Austrians last month.
This city has also been re-taken by
the Servians.

ARMS AND THE
WOMAN THEME OF
MODERN AENID
(Continued from Page One.)
dominate that lecture hall was the
realization of anew awakening
among Italian women. The sight of
carefully sheltered, protected girls of
18, preparing for work as nurses on
the held of battle —perhaps —or at
least in hospitals, Is something which
is entirely new, even lu the Italy ol
today.
War has sounded a note in woman’s
emanciation, not only in Italy, but in
all Europe. It is showing what worn
* u < .in do in r*-aality ;uui not m me
ory. But in no laud as in Italy has
the ’ young person” been kept in such
protected obscurity. That she has
been permitted to emerge Into the
light of active work —in the glare of
approaching war —is a sight maneled
at by Romans themselves.
Seventy women of rank, of high
families, ranging from the 18-year-old
daughters to the 60-year-old dowagers,
are enrolled In the present Samari
tana course, which ends In the latter
part of December. The applications
for entrance in this class are so plen
tiful that an effort is being made
give instruction in some of the differ
ent hospitals, The Countess Spallet
ti. president of the National Council
of Italian, w'omen. whose inspiration
resulted in the Samuriiana class, de
clared that the great interest mani
fested by the women of Italy was a
huge surprise.
The course is free. It is thorough
and severe. No fads, fancies or frills
mark it. The aristocratic misses are
not allowed to have their maids or
butlers, nor are they permitted to
take along their favorite poodles, as
they were at the time they rushed
forth to do Red Cross work at the
time of the Messina disaster.
A rigid examination will be held
late tn December. Then diplomas
will be awarded to those deserving
them. After that another class will
be formed and the work of turning
out nurses continued.

stands on the street corners of laju

hava takvn refuge from the rain which

Introduced Eliza, and rubbing elbows

Pickering, equally interested in the
subject
Prof. Higgins passes the rain-wait
ing tftne away by telling his friend
the birthplace of the people In the
crowd, drawing his conclusions from
their speech. Suddenly tho two
friends conceive the Idea that it
would be an interesting experiment
to take Eliza, with her almost unin
telligible cockney speech, and teach
her correct English. Higgins makes
a wager with the colonel that he
could pass Eliza off as a duchess at a
smart hostess' garden party witlilu
six through his system of
teaching phonetics. The rest of the
play is devoted to Henry's labors with
Eliza and that young woman's ac
quisition of the speech and manners
of a lady. In the process, Shaw is as
witty, aa cynical, as truth telling, and
as direct in his purpose, as he has
ever been In an yof his plays.
There isn’t a sham along the way
from which he does not tear the
mask; not a weakness that he does
not expose, and the sport he has with
what he calls ‘‘middle-class morality”
is delicious fun for the audience
through the character of Eliza’s fath

"In the Vangifard,” Katrina Track s

tlus week.
Ah an argument for peace “In the
Vanguard” Is convincing. Ah a play
It is not. It might almost be said
that the piece is not properly a play
at all. There la too much talk aud
too little action, and many of the
scenes do not ring true. Kor in
stance, it is difficult to imagine a
dying soldier, who after refusing a
drink from the canteen of an enemy,
holds forth for 20 minutes on the
brotherhood of man, then dies sud
denly, after having convinced his en
emy of th* truth of his views to such
an extent that the latter resigns his
commission and returns home, rather
than participate In further killing.
And if this were not enough, the
sweetheart of the resigned officer, the
daughter **£• a general, who on her
lover's departure urged him to dare
the utmost on the field of battle, be
comes converted through mental tele
pathy to the same hatred of war In
spired in her former soldier by his
dying enemy.
Considered as a peace argument
and a moral lesson, however, the piece
is deserving of the highest praise.
Its logic, is incontrovertible. It pil
lories war as -the ultimate crime, and
strips the gold braid and tinsel from
military glory, baring the crueltj
and misery which lie beneath its out
ward pomp aud circumstance. In the
words of the dying soldier:
• To die for my country—l do not
mind that, but It is uot so easy to
sin for her. 1 am a murderer, for it
is the intent that makes the crime,
and every shot the army fired was
fired with direct intent to kill. As
part and parcel of the army, I am
responsible for every man who fell
I must fAcn my mother's God with the
murder of 95,000 men on my soul.’*
The play is in three acts, the first
and last of which are laid in the home
country, and the second in the en
emy's country. In the first act the
young men of the home town are seen
marching off to war amid the plaudits
of their friends, parents and sweet
hearts. The second act is divided
info two scenes, the first of which
depicts the young officers of the in
vadlng force, sow in the enemy's
country, brutalised by war, roistering
and making merry in a house occu
pied by the wife and daughter of an
enemy's general. The son of the
house, it develops, has been shot as
a sniper.
The second scene Is on the battle
field after the fight, where take:
ph.ee the monologue of the dyln>.
soldier.
T e third act shows the return o f
the former young officer, to he hailed
as a coward by those who took prid“
In h'm when he wtb engaged in the
tr~dp of killing. The cor
