Eugene Walter. in making a play of Mr. Fox's story "The Trail of the Lone some Pine." omitted the character of Red Fox, in order to best serve the de mands and limitations of the stage. When writing "The Little Shepherd of Kingdom Come." he borrowed the char a:ter of Red Fox. and placed him in the new play for the same reason. Henry Miller has recently purchased from Jean Webster, author of "Daddy Long-Legs." the dramatic rights of her latest "best seller." "Dear Enemy." Book lovers know that this new romance is a sequel to the "Daddy Long-Legs" .tories. The chief character in the new play, however. will be Sally McBride, who is merely one of the school girl friends of Judy Abbott in "Daddy Long Legs." "The Little Shepherd of Kingdom Come" has been staged by Edward J. McGregor. under the personal super vision of the author. Elsie Ferguson will end her New York engagement in Hall Caine's "Margaret dchiller" this week and will then -ut the play aside to bean rehearsals 4n the role of Portia in Sir Herbert Tree'j production of "The Merchant of Venice."

FAMILY DINNER IS 0IYEN "0.K." Uncle Sam Declares the Noon Mail May Be Made Suita ble for School Children. COOKING IS IMPORTANT And. Mind You, the Government's Ex perts Pronounce that Prompt Service Is Most EAsential. There is no reason why the ordinary family dinner should not be suitable for school children or served in a way that adapts it to their needs, according to Farmers' Bulletin 712, entitled "School Lunches," Just Issued by the Depart ment of Agriculture The usual first eArse of meat and vegetables contains nothing, except the meat, which cannot be given even to the youngest children. The vegetables, pro viding they are carefully prepared by simple methods, are specially needed and can often be made attractive to children by being served with a little meat gravy. As a substitute for the meat itself, milk can be provided In the case of the younger children. These articles, with the bread und butter, pro vide most of the food needed. The dessert course is suitable for chil dren as well as for grown people unless it consists of rich pastries or puddings. The latter are not considered wholesome for children, if for no other reason than that they are likaly to lead to 9verest ing. Such desserts as fruit, fresh or cooked, with cake; cereals with milk or cream, and sugar: cistards and custard puddings; gelatin dishes; simple ice cream, water ices, and other simple des serts may be given. Cooking Is Important. Whether or not the family meal is wholesome for children depends not only on the food materials selected, but also on the way in which it is cooked. Simple methods are to be preferred from the standpoint of health as well as from that of the housekeeper's time. All dishes that are likely to contain over heated and scorched fats, such as foods carelessly fried in a pan In a small amount of fat, should be avoided. Deep-fat frying is open to fewer ob jections, since. if properly done, foods wIll absorb little fat and the fat will not scrch. Vegetables cooked in water or in their own juices and seasoned with balt and a little butter or cream,. are easter to prepare than those that are served with white sauce, scalloped, or cooked in other elaborate ways. What is said above applies equally to all meals. There is. however, one spec fal precaution that applies to the noon meal when it is hurried. This refers to tough, hard foods that are likely to escape proper mastication. It is a mis take to think that the foods given to chil dren must always be soft or finely divid ed, for children's teeth need exercise quite as much as their muscles do. When time for eating is limited, how ever, it is well to omit foods that are difficult to chew, and in extreme cases it may be necessary to serve only soft or finely divided foods-sandwiches made from crustless bread with finely chopped fillings, for example. Before resorting to this, however, it is well to make sure that the time for eating and for insis tence on good table manners is not unnecessarily cut short. The advantage of putting the meal on the table promptly and of having foods served in individual portions. or at least ready to eat when they are brought to the table, should be kept in mind. To have the meat already sliced and .the dessert in cups instead of in one large dish from which individual portions must be served, and to follow the same general plan with other foods, may change a hur ried meal li.to one at which there is plenty of time for attention to details essential to health and good manners. due course it will be produced at its Majesty's Theater, Lordon, by Arthur, Bourchier. Arnold Daly is assembling a company to play Richard Mansfield's famous old comedy. "Beau Brummel."

Republican Ca Presidency & Any Stamp Managers of Each Claim to F gates Lined Up to N Plan to Divide Strenuous efforts are being made by the several candidates for the presidency who are conducting an active campaign here to prevent any stampede to Roose velt in the Republican national conven tion, and each claims that the number and quality of pledged and unpledged delegates favorable to them will make impossible such a fight as occurred in 1912. 2Those close to or affiliated with the respective movements to secure the nom ination of either Theodore E. Burton. of Ohio; John W. Weeks. of Massachusett.'; Albert B. Cummins, of Iowa; Charles W. Fairbanks, of Indiana, or Lawrence Y. Sherman, of Illinois, declare that not only those men themselves are bitterly opposed to Roosevelt but that the great majority of the convention will be con servatives who could not be swayed by any circumstances that might arise in Chicago to upset their carefully laid plans and the promises made to them by those giving allegiance. They point to the character of the candidates men tioned as evidence that the kind of men who would be drawn to them would not be drawn away by impulse. To Diviide Southern Delegates. These also contend that a general agreement has been reached in several States of the South to divide their votes between Weeks, Fairbanks and Burton. The idea, those in touch with these can didates contend, is to pick men who will profit by the reduction already made in Southern representation and act call tiously in the convention so as to re trieve the reputation of that section of the Republican party and particularly the national committee, before which the contests will be few. according to pres ent ,idlcations. Heretofore each can didate has had a set of delegates from each Southern State and those who con trolled the committee or convention have seated their favorites. This time the tendency In to about equally divide the delegations from Ala bama. Tennessee. Virginia. North Caro lina. Georgia and Miesisippi, so as Wa give Burton. Weeks, and Fairbanks, whose managers are ex-ceedingly active in that part of the country. from tw,-nty to twenty-live v.te., apiece. An agree ment to do this is not admitted. but the managers for those three look for such a result. All the delegates from tine South will go uninstructed. The working forces of the different candidates here, without exception. say that the number of votes given favorit sons alene %ill be one of the most potent factor.s in offsetting Roosevelt. Thus they count y, votes for Elihu Root ot tile first ballot. Indiana for FuirbanIks with :P. Iowa for Cummins with h. Illi nois for Sherman with 5. Ohio for Bur ton with 4. Delaware for iDupont with 6. Wisconsin for La Follette with '., Pennsylvania for Knox with 76, and the Weeks people contidently look forward with ., making a total of 4-9. Twenty four votes already selected in Minnesota and instructed for Cummins are added. na. are 10 in South Dakata, 8 in North Carolina for La Foliette. 8 In New Hampshire claimed for Weeks, and ;' concededl to Fairbanks in Kentucky, and toe whole number exceeds half of the convention, or 50. Weeks Claims Sweeping. Proceeding upon the hypothesis that some of these votes might be lost after the first hallot, the moan aers of tihe several candidates figure that thi wAh be far more than discounted lay the total number counted upon by each as the re sult of work already done by then in the preliminary campaign. The Weeks men give the largest definite claims. The manager of the campaign of the Massachusetts Senator is 0. E. Weller, who ran for governor on the Republican ticket in Maryland at the la.t election. Also in Washington and actively inter ested in the Weeks campaign is George If. Moses. former Minister to Greece. now lead of the Republican Publicity Bureau and a delegate-at-large from New Hampshire. It is statel for the Senator that he will have 60 votes in New England. 21 in Missouri. 1o in Kan .as, 9 In North Carolina, 6 in Florida, 6 in Alabama, 6 in Tennessee. 2 in Ken tucky. 8 in Oklahoma. 4 in Texas, 4 in Georgia, 4 in Mississippi. 4 in Virginia, 6 in Washington. :: in Oregon, 4 in Call fornia. 6 in New York and 4 in New Jersey-168 in all. As the Fairhanks people put down two for themselves in New Hampshire, the Burton managers contend the fourteen delegates front Connecticut ate for him and Massachusetts is in the throes of a primary fight to be decided April 23, with two tickets in the field, one unpledged and including Gov. McCall and the other plldged for Roosevelt, it may ie said thdt the claims of sixty delegates for Weeks in New England L- somewhat nebulous. Yet giving him 30 in his home State, 10 in Rhode Island, 8 in New Hampshire, 6 it Maine and 6 in Ver mont, he will make the figure predicted. Burton Active b6ut Reticent. Former Senator Burton is represented in Washington by Granville W. Mooney, at one time speaker of the Ohio house, and has active headquarters. He de cilned to give out any figures. but it is .said that the Burton adherents figure on at least the votes of 48 delegates in Ohio. 14 in Connecticut. 16 in West Vir ginia. 20 in the South and 10 in the West. Total, 108. Others are inclined to give Burton a few more votes in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania. Michigan and Oregon. Those close to Senator Sherman con tend that he will get the following votes: illinois, 68; Montana. 8: MIssouri, 5; Kan sag, 6; Virginia. 2; Oklahoma, 2: Ala bama, 4; Nevada. 2; Arkansas, 2, and West Virginia. 4-4n all 104. Men like William J. Calhoun. former Minister to China; Mayor William Hale Thompson. of Chicago; Roy 0. WVest, State Chair man -Kinney. former Representative William A. Rodenberg and William B. McKinley, manager of Taft's .asecond campaign, are pointed out as examples at large of a delegation of conservative men soon to seek election in the Illinois primaries. For former Vice President Fairbanks 126 votes are claimed in the line-up on the first ballot. These are distributed as follows: Indiana. 30; Kentucky. 21; Missouri, 12; the- South. 20; Maine, 4; Vermont. 2; Colorado. 6: New Hamp shire, 2; Washington. 4; New Jersey, 6: Virginmia, 4; Oklahoma. 4; Kansas, 5; Nevada, 8, and Connecticut. 2. The South in this case means the very southern most tier of States which have not re eently sent Republican represantatives to Congress. Former Senator Heming way is looking after the interests of In diana's favo Ite son in a general way here, .though he has no headquarters. Crmmins Strong in West.

Total, 114. For Senator La Follette it is stated that he already has North Dakota with eight votes, and most of his opponents among the managers here agree that, while he will have no chance for the nomination in the convention, he may get the delegation from Wisconsin In order to help him in his fight for re election to the Senate next fall. While Ailliam E. Borah, of Idaho, is not a candidate. he is usually given the vote of his native State. The second choice of the State is said to be Cummins. Root is given by only one of the rival managers any votes outside of New York, and there he receives a few In the South New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Philander C. Knox Is considered a name with which to help beat the Brumbaugh delegates in his native State and is con sidered a very remote possibility. See No Chance of Stampede. All of these forecasts of strength over lap each other in some important in stances, but added to the reasonable figure of 500 votes already attained. the 14 delegates of Connecticut and the 16 of We t Virginia already conceded to Bur ton. 60 claimed by Fairbanks, Weeks and Burton in the South and 16 counted for Cummine in Nebraska. and the Sher mian, Fairbanks, Burton.

Luck is that which has made your suc cessful neighbor what lhe is arid has con spired to prevent yoa fronm becoming what you would like to be. Luck is good or bad. according to whether you are contemplating your neighbor's successes or accounting on your own failures. Luck is a handy little thing to have arounid, for if it does not benefit you it at least affords you an objectiv-e kicking point. Also, the mere mention of its name relieves you of the necessity of making many embarrassing excuses. Luck is a barb which may prevent dis aster from poachinag on your domains; but it it does not do this. .you at least have the satisfaction of Impaling upon tt all reasons for your defeat. Luck is perhaps more unlucky than you are.-Judge.
