Mr. Thlbaud, despite the fact that he Is exempt from military duty, has been doln some work on the Paris fortifications. Ho writes that he will arrive In December and that he will fulfill FLASHES FROM "STARS" "It Is an open question," says William Collier, "whether the married man hnd best take tho blame upon himself after a quarre' with his wife and endeavor to smooth matters over peaceably or not. Sometimes the wife is so snippy and Indifferent after tho poor man's efforts that he regrets having taken this course. I know a young couple of the stage to whom Just this sort of thing happened. "They had been qunrrellng, and the young husband, regretting It and being anxious to 'mako up,' brought a little gift for tho wife. " 'Edna,' he said, 'come here. Aren't yod curious to know what is In this packago?' " "Oh, not very,' replied Edna, belligerently, as she glanced at the package In question. 'I rather think I can endure the strain." " 'Well, he said, coaxlngly, trying to win her to good humor, 'it's something for the one I love best In all the world. Now, guess r " 'Indeed:' sniffed Edna, as she started to leave the room. 'I suppose, then. It's that pair of new trousers you said you needed.' Llane Carrera, Anna Held's daughter, advises parental disobedience Bometlmes. "My mother Insisted last spring I go with her to Paris. I refused," said Miss Carrera, "and mother didn't like It a bit. Well, tho last I hcrd from her was a letter dated August 12. She wrote It was terrible ovr there. They have taken her au tomobile. All the hotels and shops are closed, tho schools are made Into hospitals and ther i no money In the banks. Sh herself cannot caBh a check, and they only allow 5 per cent, of deposits. She also says there Is no way of getting out of Paris, all the trains being used by the Government So I suppose that as soon as she can get away she will come over here. For my own sake. If I were not so worried for my mother, and If I were sure she was safe. I would sacrifice five lambs to the gods, because they gavo mo the wonderful Inspiration of be ing my mother's disobedient daughter. If I had been a nice little girl I would be In Paris now, and perhaps may have starved to death." Johnny Dove, who deserted vaudeville to play here In the "Zlegfeld Follies" as Honest Bill, has gained at least half his reputation on the manner In whloh he shakei hla feet.
