"It was very exciting in the bej-ii ning to get word from people 'this 1: tie hospital in a corner in Franc needs this and that,' and we'd ship immediately to that particular hoipita without any expense to our informan whether the hospital was in Franc England or Italy.

TWO PRECOCIOUS KIDS By nARRIETTE INHERHILL TWO wonderful children are Vir? ginia Corbin and Francis Wil? burn Carpenter. Virginia is four and t hilf years old and Francis is a venr i older, and yet thev are playing stellar teles and they have journeyed acrf-s .the continent to make public appear? ance," in eenneeties wi'h ".la-*',: and the ! Beanstalk," which will he shown ben the last of the month. One hardly knows how to approach these unusual infants. Both are flw**. ?hairod and blue eyed and tiny and yet leach seemed possessed of the knf.wl i edge of Solomon. Virginia is par'icu larly dignified and extremely con ! ventional. No, indeed, it would not do : to take any liberties with Virginia. Francis had evidently promised Vir? ginia that he would not allow himself to he patronized, and he gave the im? pression that he was utterly bored with the business of life. This was last ?first, however, fer presently he could ?not resist the desire for self-'-xpres 'sion, and he burst forth with "I ain't ?froing to be a policeman," as though ?the topic had bren holding the atten? tion of all present. Virginia fre and Francis subsided for a moment. Then he said breathlessly, "Should you like to be a cow-puncher?" and without waiting for a reply, which surely w-ould have, been in the negative, he I went on: "I was going to be one, but now I ain't. I'm Koinjr to be a school? teacher. Look what I can do," and sei:*.in?? his slate he printed out his name with both the F and the C facing the wrong way. It was Francis's mother who told us all about him. Francis is a splendid child, but he is about as difficult to land as a piece of thistledown, and keeping his hair arranged and hiu makeup intact is rot the easiest job in the world. Frtncis?! education was begun at the Fine Arts school for child actors in Hollywood. Hia thea'rical career began a' the age of three and a half years; since * ha has been with the Fine Arts, the Famous Players and the Fox Filma Frareif's chief occupations are acting in pictures and going to see pictures. He 13 a severe critic and never fails to demonstrate to his mother, at the end of a show, just how it should have been done. When Virgiala fee!? that attention has been diverged from her charming self long enough she begins to cry. She does tbil most artistically, and her form an important part of nearly all of her picture;-. Virginia's mother It was the f:rr* tbiag she ever did. A? a ma'ter of fict, Virginia loves to talk, too, nr.d it is a matter of record that Ehe talked before she was a year old. She has a past, like so many of her profe--ion, for previous to making her stage debut she was an artist's model. Virginia has played the leaJing feminine roles in "Treasure Islard," "Babes in tba Wood.'' "Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp" and "Jack and the Beanstalk." She is extremely patriotic and she worked so hard at a benefit for the Belgian Relief Fund that she received n letter of thanks from the Belgian I!r.-1 Cross. She has it framed and it hangs in her dressing room. Virginia's ability to portray the dif? ferent emotions is almost uncanny. One feels that she must be something more than a little child?perhaps the reincarnation of Mrs. Siddons or Nell pwyaae. At any rate, she has earned the name of "Baby Bernhardt," and | she deserves it. zation. Her efficiency has built up a remarkable service. "We take what wc can get to make the dressings, because the demand is at much greater than tho supply. And we want mcfre and moro linen and cotton and more and more women to mnke the dressings. You .see, surgical dressings are a specialty. They must be made i Wall, and women find it fascinating to do them. There must be no threads that would poison a man hanging , round, for instance." It is an organization of first magni- ! tude that Mrs. Willard has built up. I To form it, to define its policies, to know how to direct the work of the varioai committees, to keep in daily ? touch with the centres in Europe, to ' see that the work is done quickly and well -that is a serious and concen-: trated work, to which Mrs. Willard has proved herself equal. And nothing else has mattered. All her other interests have been pushed ' aside. And no wonder. When the , Paris bureau cablea: "American Am bulance out of ?ye Zeppelins (a par-1 ticular eye bandage); desperate need; put other work aside," the surgical I dressings committee instantly puts Other work aside and works night and j day to fill and ship the order. When Italy cables, "Send thousands of oakum ? pads," thousands are sent instantly. Makes for Efficiency "It makes for efficiency," Mrs. Wil? lard explained. "You can't help it. We expected to send the American base hospitals supplies for a 500-bed ca? pacity. They change to 1.000-bed, and the consequent order is 'Send us sap plies for 1,000-bed hospitals as rapidly a-* you can, and don't be too particu? lar.' It is a stirring work that this com? mittee does. It thipi even to Tunis, to BusMa, h'.\,\ only wishes that ? woman would help and every woman I give of the old] stuff that is on her, linen shelves to help fight the fight which || engrossing the world. This work that ewary woman can do gives instant comfort to the wounded sol? dier, saves the time of nurses and doe? tori for other purposes and enables the hospitals to use the money they would ordinarily have to pend for eargieal dreaaingi on delicacies and other things for the patients. Thousands of yards of material are also shipped to th? tributing centrai In balk, m that they may send more quickly than It were possible at American headquarters spe? cial supplies for which there is instant demand. For this work there are tbt volunteer workers and fifty destitute Frenchwom? en at work at the Paris bureau. The letter are paid two and one-half francs for an afternoon's work, and the money for the purpose Is raised by special ap? peal. In New York. Mrs. Willard points out, there are stations at Lord <** Tay? lor's, Best's, McCreery's and Gimbel's; in Brooklyn at Loeser's, department stores, where every woman may go to learn how to make surgical dressings, and thereby immediately enroll herself among the thousands of women who have in this way found a complete and ratisfying answer to their anxious ?lurstion, "What can I do to help?" ?-a?

Georgia Women Most Beautiful In All Russia Washington, July la\- "The news that a political party in Trans-Caucas? ian Georgia baa itafted a movement for the autonomy of this distrlc of Rallia bring into the focus of world interest one of the most historic divis? ions of the groat ."?lav empire," says a war geography bulletin issued by the National Geographic Society. "There are perhaps 1,'I.*?0,0?0 Geor? gians in the Caucasus region, compris? ing fully one-half the population. They Ola the great aristocrats of the coun? try, an with every reason for their pride in ancestry. Some ethnologists hold that they are a more ancient race than the 1'gyptians, while their own legeadl d?chue that they are the de? fendants of Thargaaioe, great-graad? Mil of Japheth, son of Noah. Other traditioaa trace their origin to the Kgyptian soldiers of Seaoatrla who are supposed to have reached this region ??nil intermarried with the aborigines. Still another legend says that some of the Crusaders, becoming lost in the mountain wilds, have left tin ,r imprint upon the handsome Georgians of to? day. "The Georgian women have been famous for cer.turiis a.; the foremost beantiea ?.f the near east and the men m.' the greateit daadiea m the world.

And there are said to be numer | ous instances where parties of men ! and women travelling in coaches have 1 been orilercii at pistol's point to divest , themselves of all raiment and been forced to make their way to the nearest village in Adamic garb. "The home of the Georgians is a ? region of many tongues, the priests de ? daring that it was in this land that the Tower of Babel was begun.

".lust as Kngland had a Golden age under Elisabeth, Austria under Maria Theresa, and Russia under Catherine the Gr*?at, the Ge?.igians enjoyed their teat",culture and prosperity during ? gn of a woman Queen Thamara ( 1184*1212). This gifted sovereign married a Russian prince and thus mi * ?ted the Muscovite country's interest in Georgian affaira, an interest w-hieh culminated in the last year of the IStfa century when George XIII re ; signed bis throne in fivor of Csar Paul.

He has a pagan body which yields instantly to any hesthen or gypsy impulse?such at an ?mpulse to balance a chair on its nose while hanging from the club chandelier by one of its k-eei?but he has a mind reliably furnished with a full i*t of morals and proprieties. He would be a sympathetic companion for anybody's aunt. I don't know his age. I think he ha?nt any. Certainly he never will be any elder -unless quicksilver cm get old." In reply to which Fairbanks pleids ?ruilty, but says that there ar? ex? tenuating circumstances. For instance: "I can only compare my flirr, en? thusiasm to that of ? baby with a new toy. Forgive me, but it is all so new to me that when I get going I can't stop. But, as I once learned to pound out on the typewriter, 'N'ow is the time for all good men to come to the aid of the party,' for in my opinion the film Industry is in a somewhat serious condition. "We must continue to advance with the progress of the times. We must devp'op those authors who ?re ?<**? students in the profession, that. sle??p, eat and live films. They are the one? who, when visualizing a situation, will discount its dialogue possibilities nn*l see only a situation from an absolute ?creen perspective. Some day we will have a screen language, but this 1?, of course, a matter of time. I "N'ot long ago we the*ught that no , subjects but those which lent them? selves to nothing but the most vivid kind of pictorial exploitation cou'd he used for screen purposes. N'ow we find as we develop the screen language tha'. we are bringing the high comedy into use previously taboo because of the importance of dialogue. "In one of my recent pictures we have a scene where I sit at a tab!? opposite another man for five minutes and we did nothing but talk by gestures ?the turning of a hand, the lifting of an eyebrow, the tense gaze, the act i of half rising from a table in a thr-at ening way, the clenching of a fist, the pointing to a door, or looking toward the window and taking out a watch t") denote expectancy. "In fact, we are employing more and more the same gestures and grimaces practised on the speaking stage to ac? company and emphasize spoken words - the kind of pantomime that the fre? quenter of the top gallery see? and understands when he can't hear ?he voice. "It seems that in film circles at the present time almost every one is striv ' ing for elaboration. I think instead i should be eliminition. The limpl? things in art have proven to b* th< great successe?. This applies to al forms of art. For example, look at th< success of 'The Boomerang.' It? sue cess is a favorable evidence of stag? progres? along elementary lines. Je me "The Boomerang' is the pinmc'.e o dramatic art, a iplendid idea admirab'.j developed, and what waa the result? | sensational New York hit, "I think that the footage of a pictur? should not be sacrificed for uniforrr .projection time. The length of a film should bo consistent with the develop? ment of th? plot "A few year? ?go the legit?mate i stage witnessed a supremacy conteit ?which included the drama, vaudevill? and concert form of entertainment , The dram? was acclaimed the winner of the contest, being elected the sunreme ?ttriction by the public. "The film profession is soon to ex? perience a similar situation, with the dramatic, educational and topical form of fllmi in the race for first place I know of some theatre? where the edu? cational and topical films are being advertised as the headline attraction, aria*! the dramatic picture listed is second on the programme. Personally, I believe that 'he dramatic picture al? ways will be the chief attraction, bit the race has started, and I am going to be an interested observer from a grand stand box. "There is now on foot a scheme to 1 suggest sentiment or emotions by odors and perfume?. There is an cdor for every emotion if it only could be ? discovered. A eertail Italian is now working on a symphony of /odors. Should a symphony of odors be scien? tifically developed we may get as much from it as from sight. They will be i able, in conjunction with what you seo o? the screen, to shoot out an odor into the auditorium which will produce the same effect as sad music. Belasco tried it when he used incense in 'The Darling of the Gods.' "I like comedy and do not wish <:ver to play tragic parts. Some one ???id ?that we really can't express an emotion I until we have experienced it. I think I this is absolutely true, and it is one of my reasons for feeling that I am not adapted to very serious eharacter ? izations. All my life I never have had ! cause to be anything but extrer?.'-!y cheerful." 189 Shipa on Ways in Japan In Japan's eleven shipbuilding yards there are 189 steamers, each exceeding 1,000 ton?, now building or on which ! werk will noon he begun.
