"BIVOUAC OF DEAD" KEPT BY
HEROES TO COMPEL RESPECT
(By International News Service.)
Canton, Ohio, Aug. 19 "The biv
ouac of th deed" has become a real
ity in Canton and promises to remain
for some time, unless Westlawn Cem
etery Association trustees relent from
their order that no more burials will
be made there on Sunday.
The Canton Post of the American
Legion has become embroiled in a
contest with the cemetery officials
and is carying the matter to the at
enion of Sate and natnonal officers.
Bodies of Canton soldiers, killed or
dying from injury and disease over
seas, are beginning" to arrive with
frequent regularity, and the local
post of the legion sees to it that each
has a mi.iia.i-y lunerai as a final trib
ute to the supreme sacrifice. These
funerals have always been held on
Sundays, because more of the ex-soldiers
can turn out on that day, and
the funerals are always larger. The
cemetery order hit the legion hard;
bu the old army resourcefulness came
into ploy. They 'held the funeral for
Corporal Walter Griffith, killed at the
Marne, and it was a large one. Full
ceremonies took place at the spot
where the grave was to be. then the
casket was lowered .to the ground,
and an armed guard was tolled off.
Reliefs wore formed, and two senti
nels stood erect, keeping' vigil through
the night and on Monday morning
until cemetery sextons came to dig
tht grave and lower the coffin into it.
"Our buddies went overseas on
Sunday, fought and died on Sundays,
so why shouldn't they be (buried on
this day, when more of their com
rades can turn out?" asks Ben J.
Daugherty, a former major, and com
mander of Canton Poet.

By ANN LISLE.
The day after "Virginia and Pat be-"
gan life together again as a beautiful
climax to my birthday excursion to
the old Harrison place, Phoebe and
I went over to close Virginia's apart
ment. For the time, Virginia and Pat
planned to make their home at the
newly christened Dreamwold, and
Phoebe was coming to live with Jrm
and me. So we were going to send
Virginia a trunk full of possessions
and carry Phoebe's belongings to my
"I guess you and I might start
picking out things for my trousseau
don't you think so, Anne?" asked
Phoebe, facing me gaily over a bun
dle of lingerie" she was storing in a
drawer of her wardrobe trunk.
"There can't be any objection to
that now, except Neal's indifference,"
Whereat Phoebe rushed over to
shake me and demand:
"Do you think I love him better
than he does me? Do you do you?
Well, you're right; I do, and I'm
proud of it 'cause no one 'could love
anyone as much as I do Nead."
The jangle of the telephone right
at my elbow prevented reply. I
picked up the 'phone dreading a del
uge of congratulations from someone
who'd found out about Virginia. A
carefully modulated masculine voice
"May I speak to Miss Phoebe Har
"I'm busy. If it isn't Neal, you
take the message.
"May I take the message I said
"I must speak to Miss Harrison,"
replied a voice, I now felt sure I
"This is Anne Harrison, Sheldon."
I said. "Phoebe wants me to an
swer for her."
"This isn't Mr. Sheldon."
came back after a moment of hesi
tation. "And it's imperative that I
speak to Miss Harrison herself."
So I held out the 'phone to Phoebe
and then busied myself with my
packing, but stray phrases would
come to me.
"Why shouldn't IT Oh.
you cant mean that Of
course I don't want you to feel des
perate It isn't humiliat
ing. rleally, X can t witnout
Neal. He trusts me, of
course. So does she You
misunderstand the whole thing.
I'm not pitiless and I want to do
what's right and due. Well,
then I will, but only for an hour.
Yes, I understand the ex
act place. Yes. Yes, I'll
keep my-word. Right away.
Oh, please don't talk like that. I'm
coming. I can't do more, can I?"
"Phoebe what are you going to
do? I demanded, as she hurried
over to the mirror and started put
ting on her hat.
"I have to chase right out," re
plied Phoebe, uneasily. "I'll be back
in time to finish my packing before
dinner and I know you won't mind
finishing Virginia's trunk and send
ing it to hre."
"I don't mind a bit. but I want
to know one thing. Was that Shel
don Blake phoning?" I demanded.
"Why you know his voice,
wouldn't you" ? countered Phoebe.
"I must rush. Anne. if I'm to keep
my appointment and then get back
here in time to pack before dinner.
J 11 take the car, but I'll send Lyons
Before I could question her fur
ther, Phoebe dashed out, leaving me
to disturbed imaginings. AVhat un
der the sun could Sheldon Blake
want of Phoebe that boded any good
if it had to be kept secret from me?
And why should Neal's fiancee rush
out at Sheldon's bidding? I had to
give it up unanswered.
As soon as I had packed every
thing Virginia could conceivably
want during the next fortnight, I
telephoned for Lyons to come up,
and when Amanda reported that he
was at the door, I explained my
"Mrs. Dal ton wishes you to come
out to - morrow at the latest.
Amanda- But if you can get ready
now I don't see why I shouldn t
send you out in the car. I'll have
Lyons take the trunk, too, and we 11
surprise Mrs. Dalton by getting a.ll
her nice belongings to her quickly.
To Be Continued.
Life has been a quick shifting kall
descope of romance adventure and
hard work for Lydia Lipkowska, the
famous little Russian prima donna
who . is to sing the title role in Hen
ry W. Savage's new production of
"The Merry Widow" at the Park
Theatre, the last half of next week.
But she has emerged without a wrin
kle, and ia in great vocal form for
her coming tour. In her dainty
blonde loveliness, bubbling over with
vivacity and charm, she looks as if
she had never endured a moment of
toil, hardship and rugged adventure.
But she knows what all these means.
Lipkowska was surely born under
a lucky star. When she left her na
tive Odessa, she was but fourteen
years old, with the slenderest re
sources and parents who did not ap-"
prove her desires for a lyric career.
But the very day she applied at the
Royal Conservatoire, in Petrograd, a
kindly woman teacher enlisted the
Tsarina's interest in her and rou
bles enough for her two years train
ing. She wag but sixteen when she
created a furore in the Royal pres
ence, in "Rigol-etto," at the Imperial
Then swiftly followed her engage
ment for the Boston Opera Company,
and her notable successes with Car
uso at the Metropolitan. New York,
and in th-3 leading' capitals of Europe.
The revolution in Russia brought
many hardships. She was held up by
bandits .and robbed of her jewels.
Finally she was thrown into prison
in Petrograd, the scene of her first
briliant conquest. One of the guards
was a young liussian private, wno
had carried her in ' memory as his
ideal ever since she sang at a hospital
where he was lying wounded. TJpon
recognizing her be aided her escape,
disguised as a chambermaid. She
made her wa back to Odessa. A
French cavalymo.n helped her reach
a fishing smack, and she reached
Constantinople in safety.
She rode upon the op wave of pop
ularity in engagements at La Scala,
Milan, the Grand Opsra and Opera
Comique, Paris, the Imperial, Vi
enna, and in grand opera at Covent
Garden, London. Last spring she
was placed under contract by Mary
Carden to create the titel role in
Rimsky-KorsakofTs "The Snow Maid
en," to be given American produc
tion by the Chicago Grand Opera
Company the coming season. Her re
lease for "The Merry Widow" was
obtained with considerable difficulty
by Mr. Savage materially aided by
the composer Franz Lehar. She is
the latter's ideal Sonia, It will be
her first appearance in light opera.

His efforts precipitate a political feud
