Is TwMtkth Century
For many years the Spark* Circu* r
has been known m one of America'* 1
foremost tented enterprises. Each *
year something new has been added ^
until now It ranks among the best of d
the "Big Tops," and this season with v
one of the greatest arrays of per- c
formers, horses and equipment ever 1
befor carried, it is pronounced a ban- *
ner one. When the show visits this 1
city it will be exhibited in its own v
specially constructed tents. It is *
said that the Sparks menagerie >s
equal to any on the road today. AI 3
magnificent introductory pageant smd J
grand revue, enlisting several hun- x
dreds of performers, companies of *
horses, elephants and gorgeous par.i- 1
phernalia, opens the main tent program.
This program presents many of the 1
world's stars of the arenic world as- *
sisted by scores upon scores of oth- '
ers. There are several companies of :
dumb actors. Everything ts given m *
a more lavish manner than ever oc- 1
fore. Three rings and an elevated -v
stage are m ed to take care of the 1
acrobatic and musical seals, the trained
bears, comedy pigs and the famous '
Sparks herds of elephants and a long 1
list of acts which requires nearly two 1
hours to present. This twentieth con- '
tury wonder circus has become one 1
of the greatest institution on the road <
today, and just as there are more nun *
and women, more seals and more ele- (
phant actors added, so there are move 1
clowns, more horses, more ponies, to- J
delight the children, more and better; '
trained dogs, pigs, moneys bears ; *
more of everything. ' 1
The street parade which will pre-'
cede the initial exhibition here, is far 1
and away the most novel ever ?t- 1
tempted. This city will see iTie circus <

Favors Admission of Women

on record as favoring th admission

revolutionary step, in an editorial in 1
a recent issue of The A n ri?ar Israel- j"1
ite. In his article he lraces the h:st<?ry
of the religious emancipation of
women from the days when th"y we**e a
segregated in the synagogues in spe- n
< ial balconies as "religiously mier or '
to the present, when they are ; inly _
established* in the congregations of
the reformed churches.
"Every form of change which granted
woman more religious freedom ha3
been fought as a break from the ^
past," the editorial states, "and it is *'
upon this ground that the admission ('
of women to the rabbinate will be ?
fought. Such arguments are futile in M
e\v of the advance of woman in cv- r'
ery sphere. ^
' Who knows but that some woman 11
may arise who, gifted with the pro- I1
phetic fire of a Deborah, may arouse v
the hosts of Israel out of their indifference
and lead them on to conquer
new spiritual heagths ? The dead hand
of the past should not be permitted to
close the door of opportunity that P
may open out to great vistas." ^

thut big oil int?re?ts w<ll

lay district of Alaska promises to
rring the thrilling scones of gold rush
lays to life again, according to men
vho have visited the new fields recently.
For this new oil country, say
hose who know something of the
tardships attendant upon a stampede,
s probably more rigorous than the
vind swept reaches surrounding Cape
The Barrens at Cold Bay offer no
helter against the sweep of the wind,
md the absence of fuel, save beach
vood and paraflne, will add to the sufering
of the prospectors who plan co
nvade the country.
The uninviting prospect, however,
vill not hold back the adventurers, for
11 ready the regular steamers and
aunches plying between Seward and
\odiak are booked to capacity weeks
ihead. Of these the men entering
fron? Alaska will have the advantage
>f being outfitted for an indefinite
lay and already hardened to the rigors
of the northern winter. ?
Rival interests have been shipping"
umber and supplies into the district
ior some time and the erection of
uushroom towns is expected to soon
ake place at several designated
mints. Many of the promoters, acrording
to those on the ground, arc
lierely there to make their stake out
f the general conditions surrounding
Lhe boom. Of the others who are
joining the rush, some are only going
n for the adventure while a few will
icriously attempt the exploitation of
die resources presumed to be there.
I he announcement has served to stimulate
interest in other parts of the.
territory and efforts are being made
to attract attention to discoveries
made in the Anchorage and Susitna
Simplified Form of Worship
Being Tried in Russia
Moscow, Oct. 2.?The people of
Moscow are today wandering curiousy
from one church to another on
Sundays, seeking to decide which

services pleases them the

xperience and ancestry to the elaborate
rites of the orthodox church,
vhich virtually monopolized re

Id (lays, and now that this has be.n
aken away from them, they hardly
now which way to turn.
As a result of the trials of church
ten for opposing the government's
equisition of church treasures, Patrireh
Tikhon was dethroned and the
hurch reorganized. Thereupon,
owever, two new sects developed,
irrhbishop Antonin, leader of th
novement to oust Tikhon and work in
armony wkh the Soviet regime, was
elected as Metropolitan of Moscow
y the "Life Church" conclave, but
iter he disagreed with others in his
wn organization and formed a new
:roup pledged to work for the
Church of Regeneration."
Through government superv sion a
erious conflict was avoided and Motopolitan
Antonin remains in office,
ut, nevertheless, in his church an enirely
different service is held than in
he "New Life" churches. In the
itter only a few changes have been
lade from the old orthodox services,
hiie Antonin has gone in for simlicity.
He has dismissed his choi's
