REMOVING THE KING'S ARROW. Conviets in England will no longer wear the broad arrow which has hitherto stamped prison garb, their hair will be cut as in ordinary lite, and they can see visitors in' rooms having no bars or wires. These new rulings by the, British prison commission meet some of the criticisms galiently advanced by the prison Inquiry committee in its recent 70-page report on English Jails. . . , Thus a reform Introduced some years ago in the most advanced American prisons, but unfortunately not yet general, is adopted in Great Britain.

The murder of William Taylor, the dis tinguished director, was the climax that forced organized action by the producing Interests : with their millions of invested capital to pre vent the complete demoralization and discred iting by the public of an institution that must have universal confidence and support it it is to survive. t It would be unjust to say that there are not good men and women identified with the mov ing picture business. But the efforts of those who have striven to maintain it on a high plane have been weakened by the unsavory exhibi tions of the minority Indifferent to public opin ion. Screen performers are in a sense public idols. They build a following by their personal appeal in the various characters they portray. They can't pose as good men and women and . then allow themselves to - privately conduct themselves as dissolute characters, indulging la vices that make lies of their public preten- sions. - , . v , The moving picture industry has been dam aged inestimably by the scandalous disclosures at Hollywood. It was inevitable that there should be a bursting of the bubble. The pub- lie had been ted up on stories that would not stand the test of time. One after another star fell by the wayside. The public wants the mov ing picture to live as a permanent form of healthy entertainment But it will only con tinue as such by Insistence that those who ap pear as the entertainers be worthy the respect aad confidence of those by whom they are ac- claimed aad patronised. - ( f - ' 1 The moving picture will not lose perma nently by reason of the elimination process at , Hollywood.

Now the attention of the public is called to a new and grave peril. The candy cigar, hitherto supposed to be about as innocuous an article as could well be conceived, is pointed out as the first step in a well defined road to perdition. The discoverer of this awful men ace to American youth is Chicago's superin tendent of compulsory education, who gravely set forth his idea3 before the Boys' Anti-Cig-aret league of that city. Here is the modern rake's progress, as described by the authority in question: "The candy cigar, the cubeb, the real cigaret the cigar but, the niekel cigar, a pale and dizzy condition, the cigaret again. After that comes the Juvenile court" And inevitably, we suppose, the prison and . the gallows or the electric chair. All of which furnishes another example ot how completely silly an ordinary well balanced and intelligent person can become on occasion, .It is an ex cellent thing to keep, the boys from smoking cigarets. It is a habit that certainly is harm fui in adolescent years, altbought few will be lieve that it leads inevitably to the juvenile' court Personal recolectlon brings up many examples of men who smoked cigarets in their high school days and now, 40 or 50 years after, .are estimable citizens who never were arrested and are in' no present danger of being hanged. INTELLECTUAL CHICKEN FEED. Brilliance in conversation Is the ideal toward which we all aspire. Most of us deep down in our hearts confess to ourselves that we possess that quality of brilliance, though our record up to date may be 100 per cent stumble. Conver sation certainly is a noble art, and as long as we are on the subject. Dr. Fairbank B. Stock dale, of Bay Side, Long Island, has discovered the paragon ot conversationalists. After long study, the doctor has identified 21 distinct noises commonly used' by the domestic chicken, coop species. And the doctor confesses that ho has not plumbed the depths of poultry talk. There la stirring eloquence to the r cotter's crow and a mother's lullaby to the duck of the hen. - U Delicious Irony and profound logic cackle forth to the chicken vocabulary. From the wild warning of the hawk, to the- mouth watering cry. here cornea the corn, the hen Is always ready with a remark. Dr. Stockdale's study should be continued. If self of help to human conversation wUoubtless be learned from a thorough knowledge of hen talk. The fact that we have always felt that chickens have no brains will not discourage us in the realisation of our conversational ambitions. It should rather give us renewed hope. : A WONDERFUL COUNTRY. f.
