BILL AIMED TRUE BETTER THAN HE KNEW. Bill Hart has always enjoyed the enviable reputation of being a dead shot with a six-shooter, but his usual accuracy played him an od.1 trick In a. scene of "Breed of Men," bis latest Artcraft production. The studio scene represented the interior of a small shack where Seena Owen, the girl, and her litUS brother, were desperately resisting eviction by Sheriff Bill, who is some reluctant to perform his di.ty, since the pretty squatter is the object of his affections.

Jean de Los Angeles composer, has received bis second letter of thanks from Ge.n. Pershing.

Mr. Chauvenet has written a poem in French, which crowns Gen. Pershing as an immortal of America. The last verse translated reads: "Gen. Pershing, victory to you.

Success, victory to you, great commander. Always advancing in your battles, the conqueror. But pushing back tha hordes of the cruel enemy, Transfigured, you are spiritual Glorified by all, take your wreath of immortality." Mr. Chauvenet, In a letter to Gen. Pershing in August last, predicted victory In November, and It was a leading up to this dramatic moment Sheriff Bill has been forced to rush the shack, only to receive a bullet In his shoulder.

He returns the fire, not realizing who is doing the shooting. And one of his shots through the door strikes the girl in the hand and breaks the stock of her gun. WEHLEN LEGISLATURE TO GET PROPOSAL FOU FIVE MILLION ROAD BUILDING FLAN. 1BT a. r.

Efforts to submit a women suffrage amendment to the State constitution, to obtain immediate adoption of the national prohibition amendment and to revise the election law, especially along the lines of a modified form of tne direct primary, probably will be made at the coming session of the State Legislature, which will begin January 7, 1919, and will continue sixty days.

Since early childhood. Miss Nile has manifested her desire for tha stage, and later when she attended the minor schools she even wrote her own plays and played In them herself. "There were so many I don't remember the number," said Miss Nile. "But I did write a tremendous amount of stuff. My knowledge of the technical requirements of the theater was necessarily vague, and the plays and playlets I wrote bore the unmistakable mark of the amateur.

But nevertheless they were actable and I made tha most of my opportunities to act." Practice, however, as the sages say, makes perfect, and In time Miss Nile, still a little girl, began to write really creditable things. She was only a slip of a girl when she began to take charge of all the local charity entertainments. Her amateur efforts Inclined her to look to the stage for a career and later she attended a dramatic school. One season she spent on a barnstorming tour with an "East Lynne" compaivv. That was really the beginning other professional career.


LONDON. Nov. SO. In the great war the British armies had only 4000 cases of enteric fever in over four years, despite the fact that the troops have frequently been billeted In areas Infested with the disease. This Is attributed to the efforts of the British army medical service.

Medical officers say that Illness among the British army has been reduced to a minimum. Sanitation and Inoculation have been primarily responsible for this happy state of affairs. To understand the strides that have been made it must be remembered that during the two and a half years of the South African war there were more than 60,000 cases of enteric among a force of 200,000 men, and this in a country practically immune from the disease up to the outbreak of hostilities. TTMP Mart ordered Sheriff Bill to stand about ten feet away and fire two shots through the door, lust as close to each other as possible. Of course, Seena Owen wasn't really on the other side of the door, so don't be alarmed.

Sheriff Bill fired one shot "That's good," said Director Hart, "shoot again!" Sheriff Bill raised his six-gun "IIS coincidence that Gen. Pershing re-i CORRECTED!

"You've missed the whole door!" they shouted to the astounded BUI, who stood gazing at one lone hole in the door.

Bill had shot squarely fhrough the first bullet hole In the door, not even statistics, because of the increased A LACE 7th Between Bdwy. Hili Smashing Double Holiday Ball chipping the wood.
