Springfield, 111., Sepl 7. Bernadote,
a .Rip' Van 'Winkle town, is awakening
from a century of sleep.
Like those souls living 'on yonder
hill' above Spoon river, who were quek
oned into .life by the imagination of
Edgar Lee Masters in his "Anthology"
the unperturbed inhabitants' of this
stiange little village on the same
Spoon river, have been touched with
life by the pen of a newspaper writer.
Without telephones, automobiles, rail
roads or any modern conveniences, this
town had gone on in its undisturbed
Way for a hundred years, sleeping
quietly in a busy world, until a few
day's. ago when it was "discovered" -1y
a motion picture director; and the
next morning awqke to fame with a
column of type in a Bloomington news
paper. C. L. Varnard, -looking about for a
"location" to film a country town
scene, ran across tne village. It has
no railroads and half the inhabitants
claim never to have seen a train. It
has no picture shows, and of course
had never seen a motion picture cam
era. There are no telephones and no
electricity in the town. The old village
grist mill is still grinding away every
day with water from the same spillway
that supplied the minn a century ago.
: But now strange things are happen
ing in Bernadote. Big automobiles
whizz through the village. There is the
usual smell of oil and gasoline. The
swirling dust from many pneumatic
tires distress the bewildered inhabi
tant. Oldj ladies in cafico dresses
no longer go their quiet way to the
village .store and lonk whiskered old
men no longer calmly whittle the hours
away under the village trees. Their
nerves twitch and the day is no longer
The articles describing the rustic
wonders of the superanuated village
has brought tourists from far and
About the town go unusual looking
men with cameras and stage aopear
ances. They are the moving picture
people who are going to put Berna
dote in the films. Berriadote is
walking. Some of the oldest inhabitants
tnmk its a nightmare.
Most of the folks of the town are
farmers. A few of the oldest ave con
sidered to be retired. The others work
in the fields, -harvesting crops fro m
the same ground their fathers arid
There are two small wooden build
ings in the village that serve as stores,
where the simple wants of the neonle
are supplied. The houses are quaint and
old fashioned, of the old colonial and
English type. Picket fences separate
the yards. Old fashioned flowered gar
dens bloom in the dooryards.
JOHN SMYRE'S SCHOOL
NEEDS SOME AID
For two years I have been trying to
establish w-hat is known as a chari
table institutiona.1 work. At first I
bought my work was all in vain, but by
leceivip.g" aid from both white , and
colored 'iriends I have still been able
to remain in heart.
By allowing motherless and father
less ; children the privilege of attend
ing the summer school for half price,
and free tuition, I was not able to
bear all expenses, and now I am ask
ing the friends of the poor and needy
children to help me in this benevolent
work. - -
Any money or clothing will be most
thankfully appreciated and applied to
the benefit of the children.
. Thanking you in advancefor any
thing vou may give,
