" AT THE LIBERTY TONIGHT
^ Mack Sennetts* latest five-part
comedy comedy sensation “D6WN ON
THE FARM** will be the big feature
at the Empress to-night.
“Down on the Farm** represents
Sennett’* genius as “Comedy King” at‘
its height. Thur five reels he carries
the beholder thru alternating scene; of
comedy, travesty, hilaiious satire, ser
ious drama and thrilling episodes, nev
er permitting the action to. languish
for an instant, but keeping it up at
typically “Sennett terapo.*^
Every player in the cast is a Sen
nett comedy expert, and some of the
funniest scenes are due to the master
ly efforts of Teddy the Great Dane,
Pepper, his feline enemy, John Henry
Jr., the famous Sennett baby star, and
a host of farmyard residents, four
footed or feathered.
Though the the plot is melodra
I matic, and concerns the romance of a
pretty rustic maiden, a menacing
mortgage, a villainous landlord and a
beautiful and harrassed wife, the
treatment is as new as it is refreshing
• and different”
“Down on the Farm” has been call
, ed the most sensational comedy of the
season because of its “punch”’, and the
number of ingredients from which it is
concocted^ including travesty, comedy,
melodrama, “mellerd rammer” and de

DUBLIN, Not., 29- In official cir
cles here the suggestion of Lord Rob
ert Cecil, Viscount Grey of Fallodon
md Herbert H. Asquith, former Brit
ish Premier, that there must be a pub
ic inquiry into the reprisals and Irish
military administration generally is
regarded as impracticable. It is said
that it would be like trying a com
mander in face of the enemy. No in
quiry would be complete which did not
include the men in highest authority.
They would either haTe to repudiate
heir subordinates or admit responsi
bility. Inquiry, it is urged, is impossi
ble while the fight lasts.
If the government yielded to the
demand for inquiry in the form called
for it would mean the resignation of
some of the highest officers. It is ex
pected that a day will be given for a
debate in parliament on the whole
question and what the government will
face a division in which it will be sup
ported by all the stalwarts of the Un-,

AMSTERDAM, Nov., 29— Henry
Polak, president of the Dutch Dia -
mond Worker’s Union, says it is not
impossible that a German explosive’s
firm has discovered how to manufact
ure diamonds artificially, as it claims
to have done. The chief difficulty is to
obtain an unbelievably powerful pres
sure under the right circumstances, M.
Polak explained. Since it is a manu
facturer of explosives which is report
ed to have discovered the method of
making diamonds, he said It was pos
sible that experiments had succeeded
in obtaining the desired pressure.
• M. Polak expressed some doubt as
to whether diamonds could be manu
factured artificially at less than the
cost of mining them.
LONDON , Nov., 29— Egyptian
women are at last beginning to take
an interest in public affairs, particu
larly in the schools . Viscount Milner
in his#report as High Commissioner of
Egypt says that no change which tak
en place in that country in the last
the awakening interest of women in
few years none is more striking than
affairs outside of the home.
The commissioner added that a few
years ago it was rare to find a moth
er showing a derect personal interest
in the welfare of her daughter at
behoof. All this was left to the father
who often had 4o- overcome tha moth
er’s opposition to the education of hei
daughter. “During the last few years
these conditions have changed in the
larger towns where mothers now visit
the schools and discuss their daughters
progress with the head teacher,” said
This change is attributed by the
High Commissioner largely to educa
tion and he predicts that its influence
will be potent on the future progress
of educational development in Egypt.

For more than thirty second* last
night Seward experienced a severe
earth quake shock. Starting about 10:
05 the quake which apparently moved
from the east to west, shook every
building in the town with moie or lees
violence. The thick concrete trails at
the power plant rocked to and fro, the
walls of the Van Gilder Building
ciacked and trembled. Shelves were
emptied of their contents. Clocks were
stopped in many of the public build*
ings and homes. Merchandise was up*
set and tumbled about in the stores.
The building^ swayed more than aov*
eml inches. Many people were fright*
ened and ntartled, particularly those
who had never experienced a trmlhlr
| before. The dock and the buildings os
i the dock were shaken mightily. Never
before in the memory of the oldest in
habitants has such a severe- tremble
hit this community. The dwellings lo
cated along the foot of Marathon and
the other hills were shaken more
those in town. The patrons Ofthe Lib
erty Theatre were inclined to make for
the street when the quake started but
changed their minds : and returned
when they felt assured that it was ov
er. The first show for which the usual
capacity crowd had gathetodwas com
pleted about ten minutes prior fcnjfct
