(Established 1873) ORDER OR CHAOSJ freedom. His death, following ('oubt as to whether or not he is in- spired more by his vision of true t'reet'om for Ireland or an unbound ed desire to rule or ruin. While the plan of Collins and Griffith offered peace, a government for Ireland on the same basis as ther dominions of the British Em pire and possibility for increasing self-rule as is shown in the history of other British commonwealths, the lanatieism of DeValera has of fered only continued strife without A BIG TASK The commission appointed Governor Nestos to survey the regulatory laws now in force in the months of 1913. state and to make recommendations for a reclassification by the legisla ture can do a good work if it will simplify regulation, bring it under the head of responsible, elective of ficials and decrease the expense of regulation which is accomplished in each case as a result of a tax, direct or indirect, on the people. The majority of tha commission is composed of Fargo people, but it is hoped that sense of local pride will not deter them from recom mendations that the legislature put all regulatory work where it be longs—at the state capital, under the supervision of some responsible elective officer and, make the regu lation an integral part of the ad ministrative forces of the state. Power now is delegated by the CUItSE OF YOUTH Is tlie barefoot boy a vanishing institution in our cities? A travel ing salesman sends this letter: "I make hundreds of towns and cities, selling my goods, and it strikes me that each year I see| fewer and fewer barefoot boys. Of course, there still are many, pad dling about without shoes, particu larly in the smaller towns. But I am \vondering if the time is not far off when the barefoot boy will be a curiosity in the big cities. You can travel miles now without seeing a lad with a stubbed tye bound up in a wad of cloth. When I was a boy, a youngster wearing shoes and stockings in summer was so scarce that people when they saw one wondered what was wrong with him." Many of the rest of us have no ticed the gradual passing of the barefoot boy. City pavements are too hot for the unprotected foot. It is a big loss for.-youth. How big a loss, is known only to the grown up who in memory has the delight ful recollection of bare feet pad ding through thick August dust of a country road Or wiggling deli ciously in mud puddles and ruts after a rain. "Them were the days!" without the alleys through which •we explored, gathering scrap iron and bones In a dirty old burlap hag for the junkman? High board fences were along those alleys, to keep youthful pirates out of or chards at the back of yards large enough to play a Mil game in. The alleys are passing. So are the tall back fences. So are the huge back yards. A garage and a strip of half-dead grass the size of a living-room rug areall that sepa-1 rate the typical modern city house from the neighbor on the street in the rear.

Another 50 years of "progress" and there will not be any such thing as boyhood in the cities.

EDITORIAL REVIEW Comments reproduced In tills column may or may not express the opinion of The Tribune. They are presented here In order that our readers may have both sides of important issues which are being: discussed In the press of the day. PKOTECTIOft OF ALIENS In his address to congress the President has asked for legislation which will place aliens directly un- legislature to professors at the Ag-jder the protection of the federal ricultural College, to inspectors government. It is high time'that who live elsewhere far from the we had such legislation. Lacking] state capital, wh6 cannot be well' it we are not in a position to ful cliecked by the state auditing board fill the obligations to other nations ond who are deprived of the friend- which we have voluntarily assumed, ly counsel and cooperation of other and such as we would certainly de branches of the state government, mand that other nations fulfill in There is some educational work I their relations with us if the oc being conducted from the state cap-1 casion should arise. itaJ, especially the farm institute work under the Commissioner of Agriculture and Labor, which may well be made a part of the duties of the State Agricultural College at Fargo, and it is highly important that the regulatory work now being done at that educational institution be transferred to Bismarck. The President's recommendation was called forth by the massacrc at Herrin, 111., in which aliens were killed. The foreign governments of which these aliens were subjects have very properly called the at tention of the American government to the murder of their citizens, and have asked that proper steps be taken to bring the criminals to jus tice. This the government is pow erless to do, as all these matters are within the jurisdiction of tlie states, and the state of Illinois seems to feel no great interest in the matter. It seems strange that congress should have taken no steps to cor rect this condition in all the years that have passed since the need was so plainly shown in the Italian in cident at New Orleans. On that oc casion a number of Italians were shot by a mob, and when the Italian government took the matter up with Washington it was informed that under our constitution Washington had no jurisdiction. The rather pointed reply of^Italy was that if the American constitution stood in the way of the fulfillment of Ameri can pledges, the constitution should be changed. That reply gave some offense on this side, but the fact re mained that if the federal govern ment could not and the state gov ernment would not protect foreign residents, and ouri states could not be reached by the foreign govern ment interested, the security of for eigners in this country was merely a matter of courtesy, and any pledges which we made in the mat ter wero worthless.

ADVENTURE OF THE TWINS By Olive Barton Roberts Flap-Doodle had, changed Nancy and Nick, tlie Twins into two white rabbits. He did it with the Fairy Queen's wand he had stolen. Then he flew out of the lni^lbcrry tree straight up to the sky where fie liked to live. I doW't ikihow whether, he went to !the. Tinky-Winkle Star or the Beamy-Gleam Star or the Spik., Sparkle Star, but wherever it wafr«|tMi may be sure he intended tOj^jO jsoVne thing mean. Nancy stood looking sorrowfully at Nick and wiggling her pooc,little j^ink nose and Nick looked forlornly-, at Nancy, his whiskers trembling indig nantly. 1 "Oh!" went .Nancy. 'My!'"gasped Nick. And that was all they could say! But something else was happening far, far away. The Fairy Queen was so worried about the long absepce of. the Twins she had called a meeting of her coun cilors. There was Mr. Rubadub, and Mr. Tingaling, and Mr. Scribble Scratch, and Mr. Sprinkle-Blow, and all the other good friends of Nancy's and Nick's. "Fairies," said the Queen. "1 am sure something has hapened to the Twins. Dear only knows what mis chief lap-Doodle has done with that wand. We'll have to do something." Scarcely had sh'e spoken wheti something fell at «:ie Fairy Queen's feet. "Why, it's the magic Green Shoes the Twins wore!" she cried. "Now I'm-sure something has happened. Quick all of you! be off and leave no stone unturned on the earth or in Fairyland until you fihd those dear children." (To Be Continued. (Copyright, 192, NEA Service.)

I didn't know it and I'm might glad that I decided to come out here to Hollywood and learn something of the "activities of the inarticulate creators of the movie picture. Inarticulate and non-pictorial, be cause they've had no highly paid publicity men, hitherto, to either write their life stories or put their pictures in the papers. And the reason I tale it, for this sad remissness on the part of the publicity men is because said "in articulate ones" have just gone along working their eight hours a day, sawing and plumbing and hammer ing and painting and sculpting and doing all the other things needful to make the movies a success, realizing that it woud be exceedingly bad form for a $7-a-day carpenter to in dulge in a brainstorm when he chanced to hammer his thumb or step on a rusty nail! So I was mighty glad, when Pub licity Director Arch "Reeve of the Lasky studios asked his assistant, Mr. Allen, to show me all about be hind the scenes and let me see what makes the wheels go round. Here is one institution, which has maybe 50 or 60 or even 75 stars, ^near-stars, and part-stars of the screen on its published lists, and jjfoO other men and women bn its pay-roll, mftking tlie pictures which ten million folks see every day! ,'i Many More VAnd Maybe you thought, some of you, that the mansion wa3 taken "on lo cation" somewhere. No, those days are over, or, practically so. Today when the director the biggest rtian wants a Virginia Colonial mansion, or 4 New England cottage or a southern 'plantation mansion or a rare old Elizabethan period interior or the Bowery of New York or al most anything else in his picture, he merely issues an order for the same, How It's Done A wired order is then sent to have a photograph taken of the picture desired to be reproduced. Thef pho tograph is pent to the studio, en larged and firom this picture the car penters and .brick masons and paint ers actually produce a perfect'imi tation of th« scene desired, regard less' of sice, cost or complications. When it coiVies to scenes of ship wreck, the battleship or ocean liner or galleon is built to a calipered pro portion, in miniature, just like the models you see in the museums of London and then this little ship is placed in the, tank, the _airplane mo tor is turned on to agitate the wa ters and make it resemble a storm at sea, which it does with simply amaz ing fidelity, and then the whole is photographed through a reducing lens to give the effect of great distance —and th,ere you have the storm, the shipwreck and perhaps the gallant rescue shown in the close-up later! In the room where the sculpture is ma,4e4_I saw copies of priceless marbles and antiques which, had bii$!:TfflM!v .plaster, for the villain to hurl to the floor and smash into a thousand pieces when the daughter of tRe house finds out his villainy and spurns him', as we always^ kn|W she would at the last! ,j Costumes Bewildering Fact is, the movie business is a great manufacturing industry where things are made by hand to repre sent something else. The chief dif ference is that in movieland the sub stitution is admitted. I wasn't so much interested in the wardrobes. But I suppose some ot you would be. The rows upon rows of "period" constumes are simply bewildering. But, most of all, I was interested in the apparently perfect order and I system prevailing throughout this great factory. No undue noise, no loud talking, no swearing,'nor even' particular emphasis. I had always imagined the director of a picture as raging about the lot with the stub of a cigar between clenched teeth as he tore his long hair and busted a gallus-strap every other minute. •I 'saw William de Mille (directing a picture, and I'll swear that he didn't speak a word above a parlor conversational tone all the time I listened. Maybe this de Mille is an exception to the rule, but he sure some silent worker. Yet he seemed to get results eVbrytime. Over in a corner a few highly colored and highly costumed actors and actresses chatted, waiting their cues. They looked absurb as all stBgS people do off the stage, and as I looked I wondeted what in the world is the attraction that the stage holds for so many of us or for the folk of the stage. I guess its the age-old passion to "dress up" in ma's clothes and go walking down the street as if we weregrown up. (Copyright, 1922, NEA Service) THE BISMARCK TRIBUNE while this studio is the big gest, there are 109 others big and little, all told in southern Califor nia, each with a quota ox tke "in articulate" artisans, running at about a 30 to 1 ratio. And while these artisans do not cat so much possibly, nor maybe drink so much as some of the screen ing stars have been rumored to, I'll .KcXyig'y eat more,, regularly and that^5*life insurance, risk on thfir lives is a better bet, on the average, than one on the stars as a whole. Now what do you say? I wish jjoij could §ee these artisans of the screen at work. Here is a great shop filled with men carrying out splendid imitations of classic pillars, for the front of a Colonial mansion, Mihic^i will later appear in a production./ Aird here is a Spanish Galleon in miniature which also is to play an important part in that forthcoming picture.

DR. R, H. BISHOP Lately I have been receiving a number of letters asking how sun burn, tan and .freckles may be re moved easily and inexpensively. Personally, I like to see freckles and tan, for they are signs of out door activity and consequently good health,. nfBut if you must try to remove t^fm, do not use unknown brands of skin creams and lotions. Some of these cosmetics contain sub stances harmful to the skin. Cosmetics, as ordinarily used, tend to clog the pores or irritate the skin and thus are'likely to interfere with the normal healthy action of that organ. Instead of hiding blemishes of the skin it is much better to remove these blemishes by improving the texture of the skin. A simple rem edy is bathing the face in a lotion of lime water. Each application not only improves the skin but aids greatly in bringing aobut a perma nent' change.'' For cleaning' the skiri of the face or forehead and removing dried, dead skin particles,' a simple cold cream' made of the following ma terials is recommendew: One ounce of spermaceti, one ounce of white wax, five ounces of oil of sweet almonds, one and a half ounces of rosewater and 30 grains of chlorate of potash. As the old skin, is gradually car ried away by this method, unsightly blemishes such as red blotches, tan places, "liverspots" and sunburn will disappear gradually and harm lessly. WOMAN BLAMED BY HER FAMILY. Restless, irritable, nervous, excit able and exacting is the charge against her by those nearest and dearest.

"Was it the collar you were look ing for in the cupboard?" said Bill "Of course. 'Why no collar? I said. For some reason Cayley con sidered it necessary to hide all Mark's clothes not just the suit, but everything which he was wear ing, or supposed to be wearing, at the time of the murder. But. ne hadn't hidden the collar. Why. Had he left it out by mistake? So I looked in the cupboard. It wasn there. Had he left it out on pur pose? If so, why?—and where was it? Naturally I began to say to my self, 'Where have I seen a collar lately? A collar all by itself?' And I remembered—what, Bill?" Bill frowned heavily to himself, and shook his head. ^"Don't as'.t me, Tony. I can't— Ey Jove!" He threw up his head. "In the basket in the office bed room!" "Exactly." ''But is that the one?" "Thfe one that goes with the rest of the clothes? I don't know. Where else can it be? But if 30, why send the collar quite casually to the wash in the ordinary way, and take immense trouble to hide everything else? Why, why, why?" Bill bit hard at his pipe, but could think of nothing to say. "Anyhow," said Antony, getting up restlessly, "I'm certain of ohe thing. Mark knew on the Monday that Robert was coming here." 'CHAPTER XVIII. Tbe coroner, having made a few commonplace remarks as to the terrible nature of the tragedy which 'they had come to investigate that afternoon, proceeded to outline the case to the jury. Antony did not expect to learn much from the evidence—he knew the facts of the case so well by now but he wondered if Inspector Birch had dveloped any new the ories. If so, they would appear in the coroner's examination, for the coroner would certainly have been coached by the police as to the im portant facts to be extracted from each witness. Bill was the first to be put through it. "Now, about this letter, Mr. Bev erley?'' he was asked when his chief evidence was over. "Did you see it at a'l?" "I didn't see the actual writing. I saw the back of it. Mark was holding it up when he told us about his brother." ''You don't know what was in it, then?" Bill had a sudden shock. He had read the letter only that morning. He knew quite well what was in it. But it wouldn't do to admit this. And then, just as he was about to perjure himself, he remembered? Antony had heard Cayley telling, the Inspector. "I knew afterwards. I was told. But Mark didn't read it out at breakfast." "You gathered, however, that it was an unwelcome letter?" "Oh, yes!" "Would you say that Mark was frightened by it?" "Not frightened. Sort of bitter— and resigned. Sort of 'Oh, Lord, here we are again!'" There was a titter here and there. The coroner smiled, and. tried to pretend that he hadn't. "Thank you, Mr. Beverley." The next witness was summoned by the name of Andrew Amos, and Antony looked up with interest, wondering who he was. "He lives at the inner lodge," whispered Bill to him. All that Amos had to say was that a stranger had passed by his lodge at a little before three that afternoon, and had spoken to him. He had seen the body and recog nized it as the man. "What did he aay?" "Is this right for The Red House?' or something like that, sir." "What did you say?" "I said, 'This is The Red House. Who do you want to see?' He was a bit rough-looking, you know, sir, and I didn't know what he was doing there." "Well?" "Well, sir, he said, 'Is Mister Mark Ablett at home?" Jt doesn't sound much put like that, sir, but I didn't care about the way he 9aid it. So I got in front of him like, and said, 'What do you want, eh?' and he gave a sort of chuckle and said. 'I want to see my dear brother iMark.'" "Well, then I took a closer look at him, and I see that p'raps he might be his brother, so I said, 'If you'll follow tlie drive, sir, you'll come to the house. Of course I can't say if Mr. Ablett's at home.' And he gave a sort cf nasty laugh again, and said, 'Fine place Mister Mark Ab lett's got here. Plenty of money to spend, eh?'' Well, then I had an other look at him, but before I could make up my mind, he laughed and went on. That's all I can tell you, sir." Andrew Amos stepped down and moved away to the bajk of the room, nor (lid Antony take his eyes off him until he was assured that 'Amos intended to remain there un til the inquest was over. "Who's Amos talking to now?" he whispered to Bill. "Parsons. One of the gardeners. He'a at the outside lodge on the Stanton road. They're all here to day. Sort of holiday fjbr 'em." "I wonder if he"s giving evidence, too," thought Antony. He was. He followed Amos. He had been at work on the lawn in front of the house, and Had seen Robert Ablett arrive. He didn't hear, the shot—not to notice. He was a little hard of hearing. He had seen a gentleman arrive about five minutes after Mr. Robert. "Can you see him in court now?" asked the coroner. Parsons looked round slowly. Antony caught his eye and smiled. FRIDAY, AUGUST 25,1922 "That's him," said Parsons, point ing. Everybody looked at Antony. "That was about five minutes afterward?" "About that, s'r." "Did anybody come out of the house before this gentleman 3 ar rlval?" "No, sir. That is to say y.L1 »J There was another emotional dis turbance in the room as Cayley went into the witness-box not "Sensation" this time, but an eager and, as it seemed to Antony, sympa thetic interest. Now they were get ting to grips with the drama. He gave his evidence carefully, unemotionaly the lies with the same slow deliberation as the truth. Antony watched him intently, won dering what it was about liim which had this odd sort of attractiveness. For Antony, who knew that he was lying, and lying (as he believed) not for Mark's sake but his own, yet could not help sharing some of that general sympathy with him. "Was Mark ever in possession of a revolver?" asked the coroner. "Not to my knowledge. I think I should have known if he had been." "You were alone with him all that morning. Did lie talk about this visit of Robert's at all?" "I didn't see very much of him in the morning. I was at work in my room, and outside, and so on. We lunched together and he talked of it then a little." "In what terms?" "Well—" he hesitated, and then went on, "I can't think of a better word than 'peevishly.'" "You didn't hear any conversa tion between the brothers when they were in the office together?" "iNo. I happened to go into the library just after Mark had gone in, and I VV 4t" I didn •see era. Stevens followed. She gave her evidence much as she had gjven it to the inspector. Nothing new was brought out by her examination. Then came Elaie. As the reporters scribbled down what she had over heard, they added in brackets "Sen sation" for the first time that after noon. "How soon after you had heard this did the shot come?" asked the coroner. "Almost at once, sir." "Were you still in the hall?" "Oh, no, sir. I was just outside Mrs. Stevens' room. The house kC6p6T| sir."' "You didn't think of going back to the hall to see what had hap pened?" "Oh, no, sir. I just went in to Mrs. Stevens, and she said, 'Oh, what was that?' frightened like. And I said, 'That was in the house, Mr3. Stevens, that was.' Just like something going off, it was." "Thank you," said the coroner. was there all the time." "Was the library door open?" "Oh, yes." "Did you see or hear the last wit ness at all?" 5': "No." "Would you call Mark a hasty tempered man?" Cayley considered this carefully before answering. "Hasty tempered, yes," he said. "But not violent tempered." "Was he fairly athletic? Active and quick?" "Active and quick, yes. Not par ticularly strong." O on or Was Mark in the habit of carrying any considerable sum of money about with him?" "Yes. He always had one £100 note on him, and perhaps ten or tw,enty pounds as well." "Thank you, Mr. Cayley."

"No." "Did Mr. Cayley say anything?" "He turned the body over, just so as to see the face, and when he saw it, he said, 'Thank God.'" Again the reporters wrote "Sen sation." "Did you understand what he meant by that?" "I asked him who it was, and he said that it was Robert Ablett. Then he explained that he was afraid at first it wag the cousin with whom he lived—'Mark." "Yes. Did he seem upset?" "Very much so at first. Less when he found that it wasn't Mark." (Continued in our next issue.) TO TAKE CHANGE.
