Friends of Reason Trigg. C4. a for mer Plat county farmer, set about to secure his release from jail .Monday, following his arrest on his confession that he helped lynch Henry Wildman I here 27 vears ago. Wildman was taken from the county jail by a mob of 200 angry citizens before he had been convicted of kill ing his wife. None of the mob was recognized and the lynching of Wild man was almost forgotten. Trigg de clared that his conscious had troubled him ever since. He refused to Impli cate anv other members of the mob. A small boy in Morocco is not a very important person, or a very in teresting one when thought of a way off there, but Mustafa, Mohammed and Haraado, when tumbling on the Orpheuin stage with Miss Emma Francis, in her whirlwind dances are different. Their oriental costumes, brown skins, raven hair fcd big smiling brown eyes save them a decidedly foreign appearance, but their manner was quite like the average American child as they told of their distant homes and native customes. They are all older than their size and man ner indicate and while they seem small and almcst delicate, they are in reality remarkably strong with wonderful power of endurance, being especially strong in the trunk and arms. How did they happen to come to this country? What was their prep aration for their work? Are they going to stay here? What was their life and what are their ambitions? Life in Morocco is very different, they said. The houses are low and white and not at all like ours. Tum bling and acrobatic work are natural to them. The work of their act is very much like their games. About three years before they came to this country they entered the school of Sie Hassan Ben Ali. where they were! taught reading, writing and numbers and at the same time were strength ened and instructed in the greater secrets of tumbling. Three years is long enough to become sufficiently ex pert In their art to secure a contract. At the end of that time if they show sufficient talent, Sie Hassan Ben Ali makes a contract with the f.ither by which they are brought to this coun try and positions secured for them under his protection. In turn he is under a bond to ensure their safety. The boys are wonderfully enthusias tic over their work and when asked If they wanted to do what they were doing they replied in the affirmative. What will you do after you have work ed a long while and made a lot of money? was asked. We want to buy gardens in our country and live there always, was the reply. "The girls go to school only to learn to sew," they said. Miss Francis is a charming Ameri can girl, born and bred in the profes sion. Her act with the boys is ab solutely unique. She has been able to keep it nearly seven years, but of course, is careful to introduce new features so that it never grows en tirely old. She not only keeps up with the present but predicts the future. Her novel featuro at present is her Futurist dancing. She is a pupil of the Russian school. Her dream is undoubtedly a ranch in Colorado, as she is a native of that state, while her boys see between the whirls of their dancf a verdant and blooming spot on the edge of Allah's garden. Rev. Merriit C. Reale of South Rend is one of the first men in the United States to get one of the new American flags since It has been re designed by Wayne Whipple of Philadelphia and has been approved by Pres. Wilson and the secretary of war. The flag was sent to Mr. Reale shortly after it received the otlicial approval from Mr. Whipple, who was an old college friend. The changes made in the pattern are in the star arrangement in the blue background. At present it is im possible to add another star without breaking up the arrangement of the field. According to the design to bo used in the future, 13 stars will be placed in a star arrangement in the center of the blue field. These 13 will represent the original states and around them will be a cir cle of stars, one for each state that entered the union in the ISth century. Outside of this circle will be still an other with stars farther apart. These will represent the states that came into the union since tho 18th century. There will be plenty of room in the outer circle to add new stars in case more states come into the union. Rev. Mr. Reale placed the flag fin exhibition at St. Paul's M. K. church.
