"Get lilcli Quick Walllnsford" has made
dirtlnct hit. In Chicago, and apparently
deserved all the effoit put n It by its

of action and It secm nettled for a run.

Discussing the difficulties of censorship
as. exercised by the Chicago police, and
admitting the necessity of some sort of
oversight to secure proper control of the
quality of offerings at the theaters, James
O'Donnell Bennett sums up thus In the
It would seem that a board, composed
of representative men and women of the
community and endowed with official
powers, would not be too portentous a
body to exercise these great responsibilities
a board, that should stand for what Is
sane and good In the artistic, social relig
ious and commercial life of this capital.
Then the application of censorship would
mean the ura-mion, say, of the Art Insti
tute, the woman's clubs, the churches, the
universities, the social settlements, the as
sociations for civic well-being generally, ln-
Me-ad of the decision of a badgered police
officer whom a smart lawyer can worry to
distraction when he bombards him with In
nuendo and ridicule on the witness stand.
Such a board as this would be known to
all the people, and being so known, It would
have a lively sense of Its responsibilities.
Fulfilling them. It would command respect,
for those responsibilities would Involve not
alone a mere comprehenskrn of what the
common decencies of life demand, but a
true understanding of the rights of art.
Puoh a bonrd could determine whether It
would be feasible to pas upon a doubtful
work In manuscript before It was per
formed thus sparing the manager expense
and humiliation could settle on effective
penalties, such as the revocation of the
amusement licensee of persistent offenders,
and put order nri dignity into a situation
that Is now chaotic and a source of endless
ridicule, and, without exagseratlng tbe case,
holds the peril of bureaucratic meddling and
The question. It may again be Insisted, Is
important, but jibes and bluster and pot
house valor about liberty only muddle it.
George Gray Bernard, 'the sculptor who
designed the groups of statuary in the new

jiemortals for the MacDowell club of New
York, one of Richard Mansfield and the
other of Helnrlch Conreld. The details of
the work hare not yet been settled, but It
ts likely that the statues will be busts
rather than full-length figures.
HI r Herbert Tree purposes to devote the

he' will go forward, after Christmas, to

David War field will appear will have to
do with, in the first act, an old man who
pledges his friend, since they both believe
in reincarnation, that If. after death, he
returns In another guise to thla world, he
will make himself known to his companion.
He dies, he so returns, and his expe

that there is now no scope In England for

Wireless Plant Built by Blind Boy
The handicap of blindness has failed to
prevent John W. Ellls.g. New York boy,
from rigging up a wireless telegraph ap

I Grease Used in Water Prevents Chapping J
There are some persons whose skin Is so
sensitive to cold that In winter the flesh
Is in a constant state of irritation. There
Is no eruption visible, nor does the closest
Inspection show any redness, but wherever
tight bands causa garments to press against
the epidermis or where there Is the slight
est friction from wearing appsrel the
trouble Is acute.
For such troube the sovereign remedy Is
grease, but unless it is applied in some
form as soon as tha Irritation begins the
skin will be broken from rubbing and the
body will be covered with painful scratches.
Also, and this Is sad. water must be used
sparingly. Grease will act as a cleansing
This sensitive state is caused by dryness
of the skin, as the normal amount of nat
ural oil ' Is absent, being dried by cold.
Therefore grease must be applied.
If any ona form of grease Is better than
another, It is vaaelene. That which Is rsr
bollsed Is excellent when the skin hss
been scratched to soreness, for carbolic is
healing, and. In th s Instance, a si ght

A preparation of cocoa, which ts sooth

from one-quarter of an ounce each of
cocoa butter and sweet almond oil, one

ounce of castlle soap cut and pounded to
a powder, ona drop of oil of roses, two
drops of oil of neroll. two drops of
oil of bitter almonds and enough

The cocoa butter must be broken into a
