WE DECIDE TO VISIT THE MVS-
TEKIOUS IN'DEKWOKI ll.
It was nearly 2 o'clock in the
morning when Harry guided us into
the little restaurant hid away on a
side street, plowed his way thrjygh
the tobacco smoke, and without the
aid of a waiter found an unoccu-
pied table. It was the place where
he had told us many cabaret sing-
ers and dancers went after their
work was done, but as I looked about
the dingy walls and obesrevd the
tired and sleepy looking occupants
it was hard to make myself believe
that he could have brought us to
the right place. Every one wa»
sleepy or already asleep, except a few
extremely young boys and girls, and
one or two extremely old and very
bald men. The >ounger ones appear-
ed to have had fur too much to
drink, and the elderly men seemed
to be kept wide awake only by
the necessity of preventing very
young girls they were with from
flirting with younger men.
"So this is where your goddesses
dwell?" mocked Arthur. "It is hard
to believe, particularly in the ab-
sence of the goddesses. Where are
Harry waved his hand about the

that you see—that is, all of the prop*
er gender—are goddesses. A lew-
minutes ago they were flitting
through the air like ancient (ire-
clan nympths or charming the ears
of assembled diners with their flute-
like notes. Now, behold them!"
We looked at the heavy-eyed, law-
dry, throng and then turned back to
"You will have to explain a little
further," suggested Arthur. "Evi-
dently not one of your three hearers
believes a word you say. These are
not singers and dancers. They are
shopgirls but for a lark."
"Wait, you skeptic," retorted Har-
ry, as he summoned a waiter. "Now
prepare to withdraw your Implica-
tion, Mr. Pembroke.
"Walter," he continued, addressing
that worthy, "are there any cabaret
singers and dancers who come here?1'
"Yes,1 'smiled the functionary,
"Yes." sweeping his arm about the
room, "all these that you see. they
lire cabaret artists. They come here.
This Is, what do you call it? Oh,
yes; their hangout!"
I'You see!" exclaimed Harry, in
triumph. "I was right, as usual!"
■"Of course," continued the waiter,
"it Is our principal trade at this
hour of the night. Many of them
come here. In fact, I might say they
all come here."
"If you did you would lie v;rv
wrong," returned Harry. "Hovveve,',
I have won my point. There are
your gods and goddesses. What

"In any event." I defended, "they

Naturally they are tired after their

exertion they have put forth to-
"Undoubtedly -they exert them-
selves, but Just how honest they are
is another matter and one not quite
so easily settled."
"Why shouldn't they be honest?-'
I asked indignantety. "They should
not be condemned merely because
they have to resort to that manner
of earning a livelihood."
"Of course not," returned Harry!
"1 do not believe in permitting any
one's occupation to condemn him or

Arthur with mock astonishment.

in her support. Miss Mersereau will
be pleasurably recalled as the hero-
ine of a recent Bluebird that won
great favor, under the title of "The
Honor of Mary Blake." She has
also been seen earlier in the series
in "The Great Problem" and "Bro-
ken Fetters. Now she coni"s to
view In a play different from any
she has ever appeared in upon the
screen. In "The Boy Girl"-Miss Mer-
sereau will play two roles—a boy
in the earlier scenes and then blos-
soming forth as her own dainty self
I In blonde curls, pretty frocks and ail
the delights that please the eye
when feminine loveliness is the haz-
ard. Miss Mersereau's film-father
raised her as a boy, but when he
died she was not long in discovering
that her*- own natural bent domi-
nated her instinct. First off she
fell in love, and just to be different
she proposed marriage to the man
of her choice. Then the real ex-
citmant began, to end in happiness,
of course — for Bluebirds are the
symbol of happiness. Continuous

little girls were taken by gypsies, who
had a, large covered wagon.
A band of gypsies has been camped

The theory is that the girl, having
been mistreated, ran away from her

Indianapolis, July 1.—Why so many

accepted. Others were rejected for

The Henri Clayton company has
moved to the cotton yard lot and
will be with us this week. This
company lias wort great favor with
the Temple theatre goers and will
present an entire new line of bills
this week. Nothing will be repealed
and as the new bills are some that
have never been seen In Temple, the
week promises to be something ab-
solutely new in the theatrical line.
Every bill a new one and all filled
with comedy that will make you for-
get the long and drearisome days.
Mr. Clayton has won for himself
the distinction of being a marvel
in his work and many have profited
by his answers to their questions;
and many more will do so this week.
Nothing seems to be too perplexing
for this marvel of psychology.
"The Gay Deceivers" will be the
play for Monday night. This bill is
a mix-up in family affairs and the
comical situation into which it takes
you is something never to be for-
gotten, and to say the least they

Siagle, age 4, had been missing from

joined in the search and late Tuesday
afternoon Mrs. Siagle notified the po-

light plant which is blown when a.
fire alarm is turned in to notify people
to shut off the water, was used in an
effort to arouse the citizens.
Soon the newspaper offices and po-
lice headquarters were swamped with
calls to kr.ow the meaning of the ex-
tended blowing of the whistle. They
were notified that the Siagle boy was
lost, and a general search of the city
began. Toward evenlg Jimmy walked
into a fire station in the business dis-
trict, pulling a wagon behind him. He
said he had heard the whistle and
wanted to know about the fire.
