The Lincoln theater, 9103 Commercial arenue, opened Saturday afternoon In a blaze of glory.

Interest abong the South Chicagoans and East Sireds Is centered around the sale of the old Taylor mansion, located at Calumet Park on the East Sde, which will be sold at public auc tion Saturday by tho South Park Com missioners. The Taylor mansion is one of the oldest on the East Side or in Cook county for that matter, and has hn located on the East Side since the Civil War. The building and the ground which is occupies, was formerly owned by Mrs. D. S. Taylor. Last fall the tract of land was acquired by the South Park commissioners through condem nation proceedings and after a long legal battle waged in the Cook county courts. Mrs. Taylor would not will ingly give up her native home for the location of a park, and the matter was in court for several months before the park board finally gained control of the much desired property. Now the commissioners are on the verge of making extensive improve ments on the park and it has been de cided that the old Taylor home must go. Bills are now out announcing that the old homestead will be Knocked down to the highest bidder Saturday afternoon. The old house is of antique construc tion and although nearly forty years old is in a well preserved state. TJn daubtedly there will be a strong rival ry for the house at the auction Sat urday as sereval residents of the East Side have announced their Intentions of acquiring the structure. No Smoke In Volcanoes. The materials ejected from volcanoes are chiefly vapor or water, lava, cin ders, rock fragments and various gases. There is no true smoke emitted and very little perceptible flame. In most cases the light and the so-called "flames" are the glow of the molten lava and it3 reflection on the clouds of vapor. The passage through which the eruptive matter rises to the sur face Is called the chimney or vent and the bowl-like enlargement of It, common ly at the summit of the mountain and often of great size, is called the crater. There may be a number of craters on one cone. Building Note In 1923.

HOME OF THE OUTFIT 7 9133-9133 Commercial Ave, South Chicago's Leading Furniture Store Mean Joke of Doctor. The celebrated French physician, Rlcord, was one day walking along the boulevards In Paris, when he met an old gentleman who was very rich, but who was at the same time noted for his extreme stinginess. The old man, who was somewhat of. a hypochondri ac, imagined that he could get some medical advice from Ricord without paying for It. "Doctor, I am feeling very poorly." "Where do you suffer most?" "In my stomach, doctor." "Ah, that's bad. Please shut your eyes. That's right. Now put out your tongue, so that I can examine it closely." The invalid did as he was told. After he had waited patiently for about ten minutes, he opened his eyes, and found himself surrounded by a crowd, who supposed that he was crazy. Dr. Ric ord, In the meantime, had disappeared. Choice of Color. We used to complain that there was too little color . dres3. Tho general effect of a crowd is still black or gray, perhaps because of the masculine ele ment Yet in spite of this one feels now that there is too much color about color wrongly used, wrongly dis posed, crudely plastered onto tho wrong objects and the wrong people.

It when you are in Washington, you will go into the "children's room" at the Smithsonian institution you will see one of the most beautiful prodne tlons of the sea. So frail and artistic la Its makeup that you feel sure that not nature, but man, must have produced an object of such delicate beauty. But nature did do It and made it on the bottom of the sea too. If you will go down into the waters in the region of the Philippine Islands and dig around In the mud, you might bring up a spongy looking object that resembles the white of an egg In its consistency. It looks like a flower basket and may have a hermit crab Inside, for the crab lives at the same depth and likes to crawl Into the basket, but he does not find much hospitality awaiting him, for tho sponge closes over him and holds him forever. This product of the sea is called Venus' flower basket, so nam ed because in Its finished state it might well moke a receptacle for the gar lands of the goddess of beauty. This i3 after it is cleaned and prepared for sale, for it then looks as if it were made of line spun glass, with its fila ments spreading out from the bottom. These are called "spicules" and serve to anchor the animal to the bottom, and so firmly does it hold on that it tikes a good strong pull to bring it up. The first Venus' flower basket to be cleaned and sold easily brought the price of $150. Now, however, a few dollars will buy a very beautiful one. Pathfinder. Mansfield and Marston. Richard Mansfield was once in Rich ard Marston's studio looking over some scenes he had ordered for a new pro duction. The famous scenic artist had known Mansfield during the short peri od the latter did gome painting in Lon don. Mansfield at the time had met with little success on the stage and very likely thought he could paint bet ter than he could act. In his commanding way he told Mar ston to take down a certain scene, in which he said the color was not prop erly laid out. "That is not what I want," he said. "I know something about scene paint ing. I was a scenic artist once." "Yes, Mr. Mansfield," said Marston, with peculiar emphasis. "I was an ac tor once, but I was a bad one." Kan sas City Newsbook.

"I had one scene with her in which I had to clasp her in my arms, sir, while her head sank upon my breast. I wore a frock coat and a beautiful light satin scarf. And what did that woman do? "She used, of course, to make up with grease paint, and when her head sank upon my breast she would rub her cheek against my tie, and well, a light satin tie, sir, with red grease paint on it is not a thing of beauty.
