The accompanyinp picture is of Jill one of the herd of eight giraffes carried by the great Ringling Broth ers and Barnum fc Bailey Combined Shows. John Patt ersnr, who is boss of all I'Jie animal.-; in the mammoth super-menag-erie, is of the op-inion that one of the higher air currents struck Jill when she was a bit over heated and so gave her a cold. It took a whole pail of goose-grease to i cover JWjl neck and yards of canton i flannel to wrap it up. But Jill got well and will be but one of hundreds i of strange sighits to be seen when the circus exhibits here Saturday.

GETS HONORARY DEGREE. 1 Colonel Michael Friedsam. who was one of eight distinguished citizens, including Secretary of War Weeks, given honorary de grees by the X. T. University. The Japs Like Him ! John Bowers was a gentleman of credit and renown, But no one ever knew it till he came to Mo vie-town Where he joined the Goldwyn forces, bringing notice to his name, So he's overtaking Fortune as lie climbs the road to fame: The American motion picture fan is by no means -ilone in his habit of collecting photographs of screen stars. John Bowers, well known leading man in Ooldwyn pictures. has just received a request for a portrait from a Japanese fan. a self-confessed "American movis actor worshipper." The letter, which Mr. Bowers is d is -pkiying proudly to everyone at the studios, leads: "May I have the pleasure of com municating to you? I am one of the mo.':t earnest American movis actor worshipper, especially of you. 1 went and see your's at the Dcnkican. Teikokucan Cinema Theatre in movis every week. But I am very that I have none of you're photographs in my album. I hope you will be kind enough to send mc you's, if you permit." The Man With a Hundred Faces A man of a hundred faces is George Ka-w-ceit, veteran of stage and screen who, with the filming of "Peter Ibhetson," in the Paramount eastern studios, adds to his long list of char acterizations that of Major ILLques nois. A lifetime of playing widely dif ferent and difficult character roles has given Fwcett a polish and versa tility achieved by few ootors, but he himself says his features are largely responsible for the sticcess that ac companied his earlier efforts. Still, George Fawcefct is not a handsome man. The fact that none of his features, either eyes, nose, mouth or ears are of marked prominence, although all are well defined, makes it possible for him to step into nearly any character, except that of a young man, which liis age now forbids. He has run the gamut of character parts, portraying men of every race seen on the stage or screen. In John Robertson's "Sentimental Tommy" he was an aged and cr ust y Sc o tch ma n . A month later he appeared as a baron of finance, and before another month had passed he was seen as a Sicilian. But he never has done the handsome hero. His stocky build always for bade such a role, and it was one of this fine actor's secret regrets that he never was chosen for youthful lovers in his early days on the stage. He never has been seen to better advantage than as Duciuesnois. the snft-bearted old fire-eater of Du Maurier's story. A RARE AMLL Pennsylvania and Ohio movie cen sors cut out Romeo and Juliet because Juliet is a girl in her teens conduct ing herself in a most unmaidenly fashion and the play abounds in kisses and passionate love scenes. Having thus eliminated the great dramatist's art, the censors passed without ques tion modern society dramas show ing elopements, assignations, mur ders and suicide. The censor is a rare animal.

AFTER you have cleaned up all you can by scrubbing, raking and whitewashing, it is a good idea to give the kitchen, cellar, pantries, cupboards, etc., a thorough dose of disinfection vi;h a strong solution of formaldehyde. For each thousand cubic feet of space or for an ordinary cellar, use about ten ounces of formalrleh de, pouring it over five ounces of potash permanga nate. You can treat pick rooms m the same manner. Seal the room and leave closed for several hours. Refrigerators, ice boxes, cupboard.", sinks and all places around the kitchen and wher sver there is water should be given ipecial attention either by scrubbing urith a Ftrong solution of, say, one part f formaldehyde to five parts of water, r by Fpraying with an ordinary spray nin or atomizer. The same spray you ise for your garden will answer every purpose. Formildtuyde solution, when used aft a proper dilution, is not at all danger cus to persons, woodwork, carpet or utensils. Ry all means use sue and air a much as possible. The practice of shutting up rooms to keep them clean is not healthful. The musty smell of carpets and cur tains in a cloned room is due to or ganic decay. Many person, think that the odor in the average cellar is un avoidable. On the contrary, every cel lar ought to emeu rwect and clean. The foul odor generally comes from de caying wood and vegetabie matter. No house can be healthful over such a cel lar. Some old houses arc known aa disease breeders. Many peiple think that such houses are unlucky whea they are frimpiy unwholesome. There is less sickness about the borne and less sickness about the farm where formaldehyde is used as a disinfectant, germicide, fungicide or deodorant.
