House Monday February 24 was born on the high sea reared on Canadian border visited in Marydel and now claims her home in Texar kana Most of my life has been spent in localities to which no one with a sense of humor would refer except as some where else and the most of that time has been spent by the wishing that I were somewhere else So runs a statement from the clever actress to a newspaper man who was anxious to know where the lived I was born on an ocean liner three days out from France the letter con tinued My parents made their home on the Canadian border In that house the kitchen was in the United Statesour parlor in the Dominion I made an extended visit to my relatives who lived in Marydel which is either in Maryland or Delaware Now my home is in Texarkana where the front porch in Texas and the back one in Ark ansas If the people who come to visit come in the front way I claim t am a Texan and when anyone comes in the back way I tell them I am an Arkan I have been on the stage for seven years My first big success was Emma Brooks in Paid in Full In that play I lived in a Harlem Flat the first act in fair circumstances In the sec ond living in luxury then back to the Harlem Flat So it has always been a difficult matter to know where I am I au now in one of the biggest dramatic hits of recent years The Victoria must be getting a trade on farming implements lout here us we can see on tile depot The progressives have until recently platform here when tho train comes in been In the minority but from Victoria This shows plainly are n the saddle and the that the country out hore is getting There to Embark for Any Point In Europe He Madero is Executed City of Mexico Feb Vic torlnno lluerta was elected provisional president of the Republic of Mexico by a joint session of the Senate and munlty and was one long to be re membercd While It is true that the strange customs and superstitions do not exist now as they did about time lauding the Second had the old fellow St Valentine arrested boat on and beheaded and tho celebration j of the day has not the meaning now had It Is not limited look for great things The only thing that mars the symmetry and blurs the beauty of this city is the lack SOme time uniformity in the sidewalks lack ofjj rj Farrar at sufficient street crossings and lack ot gravel on some of our streets 1 Lack of uniformity in sidewalks A birdseye view of Victoria would show short pieces of white sidewalk mud sand gravel grassy sward and so on tlie patch work so intermingled as to present the appearance of a crazy quilt It is a matter of common knowledge that those who have al ready built sidewalks have the right to demand that their neighbors should also build theirs They have been asked time and again to build them but they shirk the duty It is now up to the City Council to pass a compul sory sidewalk ordinance and see to t Ithat it is enforced rigidly and without partiality It will not be necessary to enforce it but once or twice The re maining citizens will learn that they can build the walk for what the fine and costs would amount to 2 As to the crossings the council has already signified its purpose to furnish the crossings at the citys ex pense 3 As to the graveling the streets the present administration is to be congratulated Croakers will croak in good as well as in bad weather The undeniable fact remains that many of our streets are being graveled and Third Degree love the play and love the iiafl of Aaiiie Jeffries and I just live the character of Annie every night I play the part placed in fristclass condition It is the purpose of this council to gravel every street in the city as soon as money can be raised to do the work One thing seems certain and that is the money at their disposal has been used to the best possible advantage Let tho council adopt the policy out lined in this editorial raise money toi continue street building either by tax ation or bond issue and push sidewalk extension and Victoria would soon carry off the palm as the most beauti ful little city in the South The ad vertising benefits such civic improve ments would confer would be far greater than the paltry cost Pleurisy pains
