"THE BARRIER" AT EMPRESS,
IS POWERFUL ALASKAN PLAY
To persons in the east, unfamil
iar with Alaska and Its almost un
surpassable barriers to human
progress, might call "The Bar
rier," Rex Beach's famous play,
which opened at the Empress yes
terday, a melodrama.
But to Tacomans, most of
whom are closely associated eith
er by business, social or family
ties with the frozen north, "The
Barrier" is a clean-cut drama
written and acted in an exact du
plication of conditions In Alaska.

SISTER JULIE
HV MAUV ItOIII.K O'RKII.I.Y.
LONDON, England, Jan. 16, 1915. —(By mall i- -Sister Julie
is one of the fifty thousand nuns France exiled during the churrh
troubles. "It appears that the good Lord would have us know
more ol' His world, my sisters," said Sister Julie, and parked a
prayer hook, her Sunday haliit and some linen into a shabby Glad
stone bag.
W'Hr found la Patrle unprepared, without nurses or red cross
equipment. Repulsed at Motis, overwhelmed at Rhelms, wounded
soldiers of France lay untended where they fell. Fever, gangrene,
lockjaw became epidemic.
Shamefacedly the minister of war invited the nun-nurses to
return.
Six hours later the first contingent stood In the war office,
calm, smiling -ready for Instant duty. "It appears that we may
serve God and our country in this crisis," said Sister Julie. "On
the Marne'.' Certainly, Monsieur, we thank you and go at once."
They went- -and stayed, organizing their one-nurse hos
pitals Just-back of the battle front. For days the ding-dong of
battle raged around the ruined, blameless villages. For days,
Sister Julie, alone and unprotected in an ambulance station in a
deserted hamlet, attended her helpless, shot-torn patients as the
maelstrom of war stormed uliont them.
Once Sister Julie found it necessary to don her fresh blue
apron, lock the ilooi- and go out and warn the German general to
turn his nun- away from her hospital!
But. the tide of war rolled back. The (iermans were driven
pellntell from the Marne. The French soldiers came dashing
through, sister Julie had time merely to nod cheerfully at them
through the window.
One day a glittering squadron of French cavalry clattered
through the shell-swept street and stopped in front of Sister Julie's
ambulance station.
"Sister," announced the captain, "we are going to ask a
favor. Will you permit that we parade past you?"
Her quiet smile gave consent. The captain turned In the
saddle to address his troop of horse.
"My friends." he Haiti, "when we were here in August we
saw flames leap to the sky. You can see now what they did.
But In the deserted village, in the midst of the flames, under the
hall of shells. ONK WOMAN REMAINED AT HER POST OF
MERCY. That was Sister Julie.
"The president of the republic is about to pin the Cross of
.Courage on her veil. Salute her! We are to have the honor of
parading before tier. Young men, look at her well. Soon you
will again be under fire. When that times comes, think of her,
that like her you may stick to your post."
He paused. They waited for the heroic nurse to speak.
"Why, bless you all, what else hw I to do?" asked Hister
Julie!
tentions were excellent and In
some measure justified by cir
cumstances, but declared that
such a peace would be more dis
astrous to Germany than utter de
feat at the hands of the allies."

WOMEN PHKI'MIF, FOR WAR
Eight thousand women have
volunteered as nurses. All Raltau
women are intensely Interested
In their country's leap Into the
war.
The Cotintessa Spsletll Raapee.l,
the president of tho Nutlonal Fed*
enition of Kalian Women, launch
ed a noble appeal to her country
women.
"While hoping," so the docu
ment runs, "that Italy may be
able to maintain her neutral at
titude In this terrible European
conflict, we nevertheless feel it
our duty to be ready for any
eventuality and to titlllxe theao
days of pause In order to concen
trate our energies. Hence It
would be useful If we could esti
mate at once on what contingent
of active and serviceable feminine
forces the National Council can
count In order to put them at the
disposition of the government If
the need should arise.
"We, therefore, appeal to our
members to inform us who among
them—and we count on their un
animous consent—are disposed,
should the need arise, to put their
hands to any work, even the most
humble, that may prove of service
to the Motherland. Un
der present conditions It would !>«
premature to approach the gov
ernment or the authorities, but lt
Is necessary that we should feel
ourselves united AND BH
READY."
CAItKFI L I'ltll'Mt t I IONS
On the opposite page of this
printed appeal follows a careful
list of questions to be filled up.
The women are asked to state
whether they are married or sin
gle, whether they can leave their
town, how many hours a day they
can devote to patriotic wor«,
what (If any) is their profession,
their habitual employment, and
what branches of public service
they feel themselves best fitted to
undertake.
"All these are carefully tabu
lated and classified, and the can
didates need only underline the
branch In which they believe they
'Could be the most useful.
I These Include running trams,
cleaning the strets, the telegraph
and telephonic service - the latter
already almost entirely run by
women—and also In the higher
branches the care of hospitals,
creches, dispensing medicine; In
short, all the various branches of
public service."
Moi IIERLAM) ASYLUMS
At the same time that the Na
tional Federation put forward
this appeal the woman's paper,
"Donna," published a proposal
put forward by Slgnora Ida Mag
liocchettl, urging the utility of
opening what she has named Asill
del la Patria (Motherland asy
lums) for children in war time.
The offers that followed on
these two appeals could only bo
counted by the thousands. Let
ters from quite poor women of
the people, letters full of ardent,
patriotic fire from younger girl
students, from mothers of fam
ilies, from noble dames, from old
and young, poured "In."
