TBB BACHELORS'
CLUB
t There Was a Penalty For f
Marriage
By RICHARD MARKLEY
q i i i l I I I i i a
Th Bachelors' club was an associa-
Hon of men who regarded themselves
as being especlallj happy In not har
lng wife, child or home and who look.
d upon women as designing persons
who made it their business to enslare
men, usually by some underhanded
means altogether reprehensible.
The Bachelors' club came to order,
the- president in the chair.
"Fellow bachelors," he said, "one of
our number has committed matrimony.
Edward Ilammerton has taken to him
self a wife. I will read article 7 of
our constitution, applying to his case:
"When any member shall become en
caged cr has been married he shall pay
a fine and his membership In the club
hall cease. He shall state the art by
which he was snared. If there are palli
ating circumstances In his case he shall
not pay the whole fine, but such portion
of It as the club may consider a Just
amount in his case.
"Mr. Ilammerton will now make bis
statement"
"I assure you, gentlemen," said the
retiring member, "that no intention
whatever to desert you ever entered
my bead until a diabolical combination
of young women in the town where I
live forced matrimony upon me. These
persons organized a club based on a
custom prevailing in a foreign land.
Between the mountains of India and
Persia, I have since understood, is a
powerful tribe, among whom the ladies
can choose their own husbands. All a
single woman has to do when she
wishes to change her state is to 6end a
servant to pin a handkerchief to the
rit of the man on whom her fancy
lights, and he is obliged to marry her
unless be can show that ho Is too poor
to purchase her at the prico her father
requires.
"Inspired by this suggestion from a
land wbere secret venomous methods
underlie all social conditions, every un
married woman in the town where I
live formed a club rather, entered upon
a conspiracy to force the bachelors
into matrimony. One morning, being
about to leave my home, on taking my
hat from the hall closet something soft
' and scented fluttered against my hand.
I shuddered. I had touched the Indian
poison flower and was reminded of its
waxen-petals and its seductive odor.
Taking the hat to the light, I saw
nlnneri tr ft n hlna nlllr hnnri1raivMaf
mr - WW - M " W VMM..,.
in one corner of which was embroid
ered my monogram in white silk
thread. Observe, gentlemen, the in
sinuating method of this designing
creature. She not only knew how dear
to every man Is his alma mater, but
she was aware that blue is the color
of my college.
"Mind you, gentlemen, I did not at
the time know of this society or of
Its malevolent purpose, for the mem
bers kept both secret so long as possi
ble. I asked my butler how the hand
kerchief came to be pinned to my hat.
lie said that the servant of Miss Euge
nia Tom 1 in son, living at tho other end
of tbe street, had called before I was
out of bed, asked for my hat and at'
tacbed the handkerchief. Why ho had
done so be did not state.
"Going to my club after I had break
fasted, I sat down to a cigar and a
paper. In the paper I read a full ac
count' of tbe organization and prac
tices of this pestilent Indian plant tbat
bad been imported to our soil. I also
read a list of the bachelor heads that
had already fallen and was aghast to
see tbe names of two of my most Inti
mate friends.
"Greut beaveus,' I cried, the per
spiration starting out on mo, 'and I
have already received a deadly Black
Hand notification!'
"Tbe lady who had thus marked me
for matrimonial misery, both from her
beauty and general attractiveness, was
all powerful Any man on whom she
pinned the skull and crossboncs must
walk tbe plank. There was no hope
for him. Nevertheless, though seeing
the signal to heave to, I made up my
mind to pay no attention to It. I sim
ply sailed on, minding my own busi
ness." "Why didn't you take to an aero
plane?" a member interrupted.
"Rats!" "Buncomber "Brave boyl"
and the like greeted the speaker.
"One week after the receipt of the
signal," he continued, "tbe period given
blacklisted bachelors by this club, I
met one of my most respected women
friends on the street She cut me dead.
Tbe same day I met several others and
received the cut direct from all Here
was, indeed, a boycott You must re
member, gentlemen, that although we
do not wish to surrender our independ
ence to these creatures, to be ostra
cized by them Is a serious matter. In
time 1 was cut by every unmarried
woman in town. Besides, tbe most at
tractive married women were honorary
members of the club and Joined the
boycott.
"And then, gentlemen, appeared the
most alluring feature of this malignant
scbeme. Last of all my feminine ac
quaintances I met the girl into whose
tolls It was intended that I should fall.
A seductive blush overspread her fea
ture, a bewildering smile parted her
vermilion Hps and showed two rowa of
pearls beneath, then a modest dropping
of the eyes. These women who had
united to analst In snaring iup were all
deuying me tbe benefit of their society
for tbe purpose of driving me, like an
Innocent bird. Into the opening of the
net Intended for me."
At this point. in tbe speech there
were groans and cries of "I'oor boy!"
"Iuuocent bird!" "Where's bis moth
er!" "He's going to cry!" and the like
"Here, fel 1 was going to say fel
low bachelors: ulus, I can call you
KU(h uo louder! 1 took tbat first step
which leuds to tbe final, lnevltablafall.
1 turned and Joined her. Like th3 In
ebriate who sips tbe first glass of wine
i hat be knows will drag hlni down to
uU ruin. I submitted myself to a pres
ence which 1 knew would steal away
my brains. 1 might a well have swal
lowed laudanum."
"Ituit for u stomach pump!"
-Walk blm!"
"Pour water down his throat!"
These and otber such calls came
from the unsympathetic members of
tbe club. Tbe benedict continued bis
confession:
"My intention, gentlemen, in Joining
her so I ersuaded myself; 'whom the
gods wish to destroy they first make
mad' was to say something to ber to
cause her to desist in her Intention to
enslave me. I began in this wise: 'If
my circumstances were such as to en
able me to marry I should esteem my
self honored beyond measure In being
invited by a lady in every way so cal
culated to insplro my esteem. But my
Income, only $10,000 a year, is barely
enough for my own"
Cries of "Dead give away 1" "Selfish
brute 1" "I'll bet she's going to cry !"
"Who said cry? asked the confessor,
surprised.
"I did,' replied the homeliest member.
"That's exactly what she did."
"I knew it," said the homeliest mem
ber. "A member of the club told me
In confidence that certain Instructions
are laid down for the girls, the princi
pal of which Is to cry."
The confessor groaned and went on :
"We were walking toward the girl's
homo and at this point reached her
door. She burst Into a passion of tears
and ran into the house, shutting the
doDr behind her.
"I stood looking vaguely about me,
not knowing Just what to do. I wished
a policeman would come along and run
mo In. I bad an undefined sense of
having committed a crime. It seemed
to mo that I bad plunged a dagger Into
tbe heart of the girl who had left me.
I went to my club, lighted a cigar,
smoked It two minutes and threw It
away. I went Into the billiard room,
knocked the balls about for two min
utes more, threw down my cuo and,
shoving my hands in my pockets, walk
ed up and dowjj In tho hallway. Sev
eral of my friends came In, but some
how I wanted to get rid of them. They
all wanted to know what was the mat
ter with me. One of them pestered
me, telling me about some liver pills
he had used with great effect.
"I dined at the club with another.
I surprised him by ordering my des
sert immediately after the soup and
undertook to carve a bird in cross sec
tions. You see, the poison had entered ,
my blood and was crawling through
the veins to the heart. When the din
ner was over I told my friend I was '
sick and was going home to bod. I
iled. I bad never before told a deliber
ate lie. You see, tbe effect of this In
dian (lower with its noxious but ecstat
ic perfume, Facllis descensus Avcrni,
which, being Interpreted, means, 'When
a man makes a false step tbe descent
into iniquity is easy.'
"When one has committed a crime be
feols an irresistible desire to visit the
spot where It was enacted. Tho spot
wbere my crimo had been perpetrated
was a few steps from the home of the
girl who bad Inoculated mo. I went
there. I was possessed with n desire
to apologize for a sin I hadn't commit
ted. I rang the bell, went Into the
house and sent up my card."
"Gone up!" cried a voice.
"He'll never go there uny more." s:il;l
another.
"Gentlemen," continued the confes
sor, "I sat with wildly beating heart In
the drawing room till I heard a rustle
of skirts and n tap of n tiny heel on
tho staircase. A moment later there
In tbe doorway stood what shall I
call It? a vision of loveliness, n
dream.
"Gentlemen, I have finished."
"Go on!" "Don't I wish I'd hnd one
like that!" 'Teaches and cream are
nothing to it!" and otler such indell
cnte, or, at least, irreverent, cries filled
tho room. The president rapped for
order.
"FeP.ow bachelors." he snid. "we have
all listened to the confession of our
unfortunate ex-member, and I know
there Is not ne of us who has not Us
tened with exuberant sympathy. Ex
pressions of opinion as to tbe amount
of tho fine be shall pay are now In or
der. You are awaro that tbe amount
lies between $100 and $300."
"I move," cried a voice, "tbat on ac
count of tbe united pressure brought to
bear and the boycott (unusual clrcum
stances) the fine be remitted entirely."
. "And I move," said another, "that
the fine be doubled. It's my opinion
tbat our ex-brother was a willing vie
t!m."
"And 1 move," said the homeliest
man, "that the ladles , of this city be
Invited to organize one of these Indian
pizen societies right here among us."
At this there were groans and cries
of "Put him out!" "Renegade!" "He's
been Infected!" under which the home
liest man tried to hide.
The president arose.
"Gentlemen." he said, "since it is left
with me to name tbe fine, I will say
that I agree with our fellow member
who says that tho circumstances In
tbls case are unusual, and I will remit
tbe fine altogether."
The confessor arose for n last word. '

NEW DETECTIVE STAR
A series of photoplays, with the in
spiring general title, "The Perils of th
Secret Service,
have been writ
ten and directed
at Universal City
by no less a per
sonage , than
George Branson
Howard, famous
author and play
wrlght Bach
story will be in
two reels, and
each complete in
itself, with a lead
ing character
whose adven
tures in the em
ploy of our gov
ernment as a spe
cial sort of detec
tive diplomat
Klngsley Benedict
form the
series.
The stories. were
published originally under the title
"Yorke Norroy, Diplomatic Agent, and
had a great success.
There are only two characters run
ning throughout the series of eight epi
sodes, or adventures. The more impor
tant of these is Yorke Norroy, played
by Klngsley Benedict, and he will be
found to be a creation as distinct and
Individual as that of Sherlock Holmes
himself. Benedict will be remembered
for many well-studied performances on
the screen.
ne had seen no less than seventeen
years of stage experience before his
first picture engagement He has trav
eled extensively, making himself at
home In all countries, nis stage work
was accomplished under the banner of
some of the most famous managers of
our stage, Charles Frohman, and Klaw
and Erlanger, for example.
An Interesting phase of the charac
ter of Yorke Norroy, as Mr. Howard
has conceived It, Is the author's insist
ence that his hero has the appearance
of being merely a man of fashion, a
social favorite, with no ambition above
the desire to be the best-dressed man
in his set and a delightful entertainer
of pretty women. This exterior con
ceals the real man, the keen Intelli
gence and wonderful resourcefulness,
the knowledge of men and women and
the proven courage, which make Nor
roy the trusted agent of his govern
ment. This portrait might almost be
that of Klngsley Benedict himself. Of
about medium height, with gray eyes
and light-brown hair, rather slightly
built, always beautifully dressed and
wearing his clothes with an air of
great distinction, Benedict gives no In
dication In his appearance of being an
expert horseman, a wonderful swords
man and an all-around athlete. He Is
fully competent to depict the traveled
adventurer, at home in all the Euro
pean capitals, for he knows them all
by personal experience.
BEN WILSON IN NEW SERIAL
A new Universal serial Is an event,
for the standard set by the company
in this respect is
very high, and
they have a great
number of suc
cesses. The latest
will be released
In the week of
March 12, and is
a mystery-serial,
the plot of which
la absolutely un
solvable. It Is
called "The Voice
on the Wire," and
is a screen adap
tation by J. G. Al
exander of the
popular novel of
the same name,
by Eustace Hale
Ben Wilson. iian. The st,rIai
will be .In fifteen episodes of two reels
each.
The production Is In the capable
hands of Stuart Paton, whose greatest
claim to distinction is the tremendous
special feature, "20,000 Leagues Under
the Sen," which broke all records at
the Broadway theatre, New York. Pa
ton will have as his star Ben Wilson,
one of the most popular leading men
on the'screen, with scores of successes
to his credit. In the new serial he has
the role of John Shirley, a student of
criminology, who is called upon to solve
the mystery of a series of murders, all
of which are committed In the same
way, by the "Japanese death punch,"
delivered Just over the heart, und In
all of which the only clue Is a voice
over a disconnected wire. ' The role
fits Wilson to a "T."
The leading lady will be Neva Ger
ber, one of the prettiest of screen ac
tresses, who has been appearing with
great success on the Universal pro
gram. She is more than a pretty girl,
for she Is an accomplished actress as
well. Prominent all through the serial
are Howard Crampton and Joe Girard,
both of whom have roles in "20,000
Leagues Under the Sea." When the
first episode Is run, it will be seen
that the Universal has struck twelve
agala.
CAMERAMAN A FINE CHEF.

pany, featured in the Bison dramas,
under the direction of Fred A. Kelsey,
goes "on location," Cameraman Harry
Gnnt takes his chafing dish with him.

the art of chafing-dish cookery at Uni
versal City, and the members of the
company always look forward to an
extra culinary treat when he prepares
th luncheon. The only one who pro
tefrs Is the director, Fred A. Keisey,
who is trying to follow the regime of
