52-YEAR ALICE FARWELL SEES ROMANCE END Brother Charged With Killing Man With Whom She Had Love Affair. MAiHBON, tVis., April 29.—Mips Alice Farwell, 52-year-old spinster, is the star witness in the xnnrder trial, now in prog ress, of her brother, Hartwell, who killed the man who brought the thrill of ro mance into her life for the first time. Miss Farwell’s lover was Phil Hosten, a farm hand. “Miss will take the stand," said Frank L. Gilbert, attorney for the defendant. Gilbert is a former attorney general of Wisconsin. The Farwells are well known in Dane County. For years Hartwell and Alice lived upon a farm in the town of Vienna, thirteen miles from Madison. They were lcoked up to as community leaders, Ilart w>ell was trustee of the Windsor Con gregational Church. Unknown to her brother, Alice loved Phil Ilosten, a helper on the farm. Even after nartwell and Phil quarreled over the management of the farm, the mid dle-aged couple continued their love af fair, meeting clandestinely, it Is said, al most nightly in the orchard. The brother, according to the story Alice is expected to tell on the stand, ; was unaware of the love affairs. Rumors came to Hartwell, it was said, j that Phil intended to kill him. On the ! night of dan. 10, Phil came to see Alice. Hartwell, according to one version, view- , ing the crouching figure of Phil from a I window thought his sister’s eweethheart was coming to carry out his alleged ■ threats. Seizing a revolver, Hartwell j went Into the yard and shot hUn dead, j NEW GRIFFITH MOVIE TO BE SEEN AT OHIO (Continued From Togo Eight.) Henry Roussell, the eminent French pro ducer and director, and Is based upon the traditions of a tribe with which he spent several weeks. It is, therefore, not a fanciful tale of desert sands, but a living document of life as it exists in Arabia and the great Sahara. It deals with the experiences of a romantic young English girl who falls in love with a sheik and marries him. They spend three very happy years to gether until the sheik s father and the elders of the tribe insist that the sheik establish a harem. The conflict between the Christian girl and the Moslem customs and traditions almost upsets the lives of this strangely mated pa’r, but after many complications the English girl triumphs, and she and her Arabian husband find happiness to gether. A news weekly and a comedy complete the program. _i_ _i_ ANOTHER FEATI RE RILE ANNOUNCED AT CIRCLE.

Tom Mix as a member of the famous Canadian Mounted Police, Is the treat that will be given bis admirers in “Up and Going," the latent Mix melodrama which will be on view next week at the Isis, and in which Mix goes under water for a r.ew thrill. With Sid Jordan as an opponent he fights a strenuous battle beneath the surface of a Canadian river. The scene was photographed by means of a novel submarine camera. “Up and Going" Is a tale of the Cana dian northwest, where that Intrepid body of men, the mounted police, maintain law ; nd order, and whose deeds of daring have made the name of their organiza tion ring round the world. There Is a prologue to the story proper showing In cidents in the childhood lifo of David Brandon, played by Mlt, which have a strong bearing on his adventures in after years. The story, written by Mix and Lynn T.

It ia a magic box, more potent to work changes than even the chests used by Illusionists on Mr. Albee’s own circuit, for it contains mat ters of substance, not fancy. In appearance it suggests very ex actly a telephone booth, the only dis tinguishing difference being that there is no patron inside swearing away his immortal soul for service. It is as high as a booth, and has a door and glass panes, which are shrouded In dalntly colored curtains, evidently so no one will be dazzled by too quick a sight of the glorlps within. When Mr. Aibee opens the door of this box, none of i’ondora’s troubles conies trooping out. Instead, there is what might no called a parade of the tricks of Mr. Albee’s trade. Very gorgeous tricks they are, for the precicas con tends of the booth are marvelous tapes tries used for decorating the Keith houses which almost make the box rival In value one of Captain Kidd’s treasure , coffers. I: was at the suggestion of Mr. Aibee, President of the Keith Vaudeville Circuit that the members of the Vaudeville Man agers Protective Association, Including executives of such high class organiza tions as the Orpheum Circuit, Loews, Pantnges, Sun, Poll’s, WUlmer A Vin cent and others controlling over nearly a thousand theaters throughout the United States, agreed to give the pro ceeds of one matinee a year In each house to the N V. A. to Establish and replenish the insurance find. This matinee Is held ‘n the spring, on a day suggested by this committee. The acts on the bills are paid for their work as usual, but the manager gives the gross receipts to the fund. According t'> Mr. Aibee, “Thirty years ago we had Just as good artists as to day. and Pin not saying that because giants are supposed to have lived only in the olden times. You have only to name over a few of the acts of that period to believe tills—unless you want to go back on some of the most noted names in the theater today. There were the Four Cohans, with George M. Cohan; Montgomery and Stone; Mclntyre sndi Heath ; Raymond Hitchcock, David War field, nnd hosts of others who are now given a place in every home. But the performers acted in beer gardens, up back-alleys and In shabby districts, so that the name of variety had acquired a taint, and no person of any standing would allow the tip of his nose to stray into such halls. That was the feastm why we adopted the French name of •‘Vaudeville.” to clear the air of that taint of variety." AMUSEMENTS INDIANA DAILY TIMES RALSTON TELLS WOMEN OF HIS CLAIM TO WIN Cites Accomplishments of His State Adminis tration. The accomplishments of his administra tion of State affairs, while Governor, as promoting the interests of women, par ticularly, were emphasized by Samuel M. Ralston, candidate for the Democratic nomination for United States Senator, speaking before members of the Seventh District Women’s Club at the Indiana Democratic Club last night. # Conditions governing women in indus try and also the bousing situation were Improved greatly by remedial legislation of the General Assembly in 1913 and 1915. Mr. Ralston said. “No man who has not tha Interests of women at heart is fit to become United States Senator,” Mr. Ralston said. “Training of tha citi zenship of the future depends upon the women in the homes.” Beside the steps taken to aid women cited by Mr. Ralston, ho outlined the conditions of the State's financial affairs when he left office. The State was out of debt, he said, with a large surplus. Mr. Ralston's speech in part follows: “I championed, as your Governor, a law recognizing woman’s nature and reg ulating the places and hours of work for those who toil for a livelihood in work shop and factory.

CONDITION OF STATE FINANCES. “When the last Democratic administra tion went into power the finances of the State were in a deplorable condition, not due, however, to the Marshall adminis tration, but to previous Republican ad ministrations. “The State treasury was practically de pleted. Every- Institution of the State was in a crippled financial condition, and the State was heavily In debt. My admin istration Immediately set about to right things. At first, of course, I had to bor row money. Loans had to be repeatedly negotiated on behalf of the State in suras of $200,000 and SIOO,OOO for short periods of time. Finally, as the result of econ omy in administration and a small In crease In the tax rate money began to come into the Stiiie treasury in sufficient sums to repay these temporary loans and ultimately wipe out the State debt—the first time this debt had been wholly dis charged in eighty-two years ” LIFE FOR PRIMROSE.
