notice that he can secure a return
late for the splendid moving pictures
of Annette Kellerman in "Neptune's

greatest moving pictures in the his

evening. December 17th, and should
be witnessed by everyone, as the price
will be only 10 and lio cents. There
was an urgent request put up to Mr.
Shlaes by a large number of the per
sons who didn't get to see the pictures
on their previous appearance to secure
a return date, and it was to accom

the films are to be taken east and

FALSE AFFIDAVIT TO BE-
You iik Man Who Did This Will Have
to Answer to Charge That May
Send Him to (he Pen.
From Sat n nlay's) a!Iy.
As the readers of The Journal will
bear in mind, there was issucnl on
Thursday in the county judge's office
a marriage license to Earl Jaques and
Miss Lottie Cheek, both of Weeping
Water. The j-rooin-to-be, who cam
tip to secure the license, gave his age
as '2 ami that of Miss Check as IS
and as is the law made affidavit to
that fact before being allowed to have
the license and the act was sworn to
and witnessed by a notary public.
There was nothing further thought of
the matter until last evening, when a
mossayc wr.s received f i oivi the par
ents of the bride at Weeping Water
inquiring as to whetehr a license was
issued here to the parties. They
stated that the lady was only !' years
of age and that they knew nothing of
the projected marriage until yester
day, when the girl failed to show up
at school at Murdoch as u.-ual, and
this fact created some feeling cf un
easiness, and an investigation de
veloped that the parties had been
married at that place and had tlisan
pearcd, r.ppa; eutly. as no trace of
them could be found. Sheriff Quii.ion
was informed of the fact of the elr.pt
ment and will attempt to locate the
parties, as the patents of the girl are
jvite worried us to her whereabouts.
When secuting the license here the
groom was unable to write his nan:-.-,
or stated so, and it was necessary to
have his nark witnessed by one o"
the young lady employes at the com t
house before he could secure th ;
necessary licence. Just what action
will be taken by the parents of the
girl is net known, as the young m;".i
has laid himself liable to punishment
in making an. oath which was untrue.
There cannot he any possible blame
attached to the office of the judge, a ;
the oath given is what they are sup
posed to accept for the truth
Later reports from Weeping fVa:s.r
:ite that it is thought that the voun
couple have gone to Ohio, where the
home of the groom formerly was, and
whether an attempt will be made t ;
send the bride back here or not hr. s
not been fully determined upon, as m
complaint has as yet been filed hers
before the authorities.
CAREFUL IN LOOKING AF
TER THEIR CHILDREN'S 0000
A few months ago the authorities
had their attention called to the fact
that two children between and 12
years of age were being allowed to
grow up without the least care being
given them, and a chaige was pre
ferred against thtm that did no
speak very highly for the manner in
which they were being reared. There
was a promise made that conditions
would be changed by the paTents of
these children, but from all reports,
to the police it seems that things arc
not improving in the least and that if
anything they are going from bail lo
worse in this case. It is certainly a
shame that such a condition of af
fairs should be allowed to exist, and
th? parents should attempt to look
after their children a little more
stiict. The police are employed
not to i ear people's children, but rr
see that violators of the alw are
punished, and if the children are com
pelled to rely upon the public and the
authorities to look after them it is
certain that they will continue ta be
the wards of the police. Such a con
dition is certainly deplorable to say

TIMELY SUGGESTIONS TO
THE MEMBERS OF THE IN
fc'rojji Saturday's Daily.
Editor of the Journal:
The legislature will soon be in ses
sion and the question of short ballot
and long ballot will be discussed, and
my observation is that people do not
complain much about the long ballot,
but they do think the primary law
ecis the people too miuh and corts
ihc candidates too much in time and
money. I see by the paper that they
want to shot ten ths ballot by electing
i governor and allowing him to ap
point the slate officers. This in my
opinion, would be a great mistake, as
the people can always be trusted, but
when you take the power away from
th.e people and put it in the hands of
one man you are going backward no
progress in that kind of legislation.
The cry has been, "let the people
rule," and our congressmen and now
the senators are elected by the peo
ple, and to take the state officers off
the ballot would give very little re
lief. We are now burdened with
taxation and the people will demand
more economy in state and nation. I
do think that if some one would and
could arrange to reduce the members
of the legislature it would please the
people, and if I had my way I would
make the senate consist of seventeen
members and the house fifty-one
members and you would have better
laws and save half the expense. If
congress had a body one-half less it
would give us better laws and suit
the people better in stirte and nation.
They seem to be very liberal with
the money collected from, the people
jip.d think it no harm to use it lavishly,
whether it is needed or not.

"PEG 0' IT HEART"
AT THE PARMELE
A True-to-Life Story That Has Met
With Great Success in All the
From Friday's Daily.
Ask the majority of playwrights,
who have seen the children of their
brain really presented on the stage,
wh-it they consider their most suc
cessful play and they will hem and
haw, glance at the skyline in an ef
fort to look wise and ultimately
ejaculate: "Really, old chap, you
take me quite unaware." Not so with
J. Hartley Manners, the author of
"Peg O' My Heart," which comes to
the Parmele theater on Wednesday
night, December 16. Ask him the
question and the answer comes with
ths suddenness of a bullet from a
"Lee-Metford," "'Peg O' My Heart,'
of course." And Hartley Manners
i means it. Any play which will win
for a man the woman of his heart, is
wonderful in his estimation, no mat
ter what the critics may think of it.
Mr. Manners says he is an Irishman;
that will account for his wit, which
runs through Teg, adding' sparkle to
the dialogue and a piquancy to his
imagination. As a matter of fact, he
was born in London, of Irish parents.
(A geographical mistake which has
embittered his whole life whenever
he thinks of it) that is seldom. It
There is no reason why you
should rack your brain answering the ever
perplexing gift question, when you can come
to a man's store, Uke'our's, that has a reputa
tion for pleasing men. Just now our stock is
especially filled with the things men use and
is just a little over three years ago,
Mr. Manners ran out to Los Angeles
to see Mr. Morosco about having some
plays "tried out" by his wonderful
Burbank Theater Stock company. It
was there the young author first saw
and met Laurette Taylor and wrote
"Peg O' My Heart" for her, and in
which she is to play the name part in
London. In writing this comedy of
youth, love and laughter, the author
laid the scenes in an English report
the home of Mrs. Chichester. She is
a proud, unnatural aristocrat and ac
cepted the responsibility of making a
polished lady out of Peg, an unknown
niece, for no other reason than that
her bank had failed and left thu fam
ily absolutely penniless, and the l,ltM
pounds a year offered by Peg's uncle
will keep the wolf from the door.
Peg, on the other hand, is a joily,
impetuous Irish girl with a fascinat
ing brogue. She has been raised by
her whole-hearted father, and when
she arrives in the Chlcester home
with her dog, "Michael," she .shocks
the family with her appearance and
then by her manners. Her un
familiarity with their modes of living,
her ready wit and her curious antics
cause many humorous scenes through
out the evening. Miss Marion Dentler,
Mr. Morosco's youngest "Peg," will
interpret the star part. Miss Dentler
gives a wonderful artistic perform
ance of this famous character and is
supported by a well-balanced cast.
