RECORDS DEED OF HEROISM
Slab in Scottish Church Tells Story of
Remarkable Bravery and Self-
In the chapel at Glen^lmond school,
In Perthshire, Scotland, there Is a
marble slab with thi8 stirring story
recorded upon it.
There was in the school a pupil
named Alexander Cumlne Russell, who
became an officer In the Seventy-
fourth Highlanders when only a lad
of seventeen. "In connection with the
memorable loss of the Birkenhead,
he won immortal glory. The troop
ship struck upon a rock; the soldiers
were formed In ranks upon the deck
to die; the women and children were
being saved in boats.
Russell was ordered into one of the
boats to command It, and a little way
off he watched with dimmed eyes the
doomed ship. When she went down
he saw creatures of the deep contend
ing for his beloved comrades. Then
he saw a sailor's form rise up close
to the boat, and a hand strive to grasp
A woman in the craft called out in
agony, "Save him! Oh, save fcisn, sir,
he is my husband," but there was no
room for another, and the boat was
laboring heavily as it was. Russell
looked at the woman and then at her
children, then at those beseeching
eyes in the deep, and, rising in the
stern, he plunged Into tho water, and
helped the sailor into what had been
his own place. Then timid a choms
of "God bless you" from everyone in
the boat, the brave young officer
turned to meet his death.

WAS A ERILLIANT REPORTER
St. Mark Declared a Shining Example

ever knew lived 1,500 or more years

to Rev. Dr. Frank N. Palmer, says the
St. Matthew put his chronicles in
28 chapters; St. Luke used 24 to tell
his story; St. John used 21, but St.
Mark covered all the details more
vividly in 16, and, true to the spirit
of action that animates his kind, put
a miracle in every chapter.
St. Mark, Dr. Palmer said, was the
reporter among the apostles. His
viewpoint, his language and bi& mar-
velous ability to give action, and cli-
max, dash and color in a sentence
should be a glowing example to the
newspaper writerc of this day.
Each of the other apostles speaks of
skies that opened. Mark says they
were rent asunder. He is the only
one among his brethren who stopped
dutifully to describe the color of
given scene. In the writings of his
fellows it is told that the people went
to the sermon on the mount. Mark
writes vividly that the people ran.
In writing for the Romans he used
colorful allusions and the references
to wild beasts to touch their intelli-
gence in sympathetic fashion at every

surrender and are placed under ar-
rest. Gordon is charged with mur-
der. The climax occurs when the
real slayer is discovered. A pretty
love story runs through the drama
and affords Miss Helen Holmes, the
charming Kalem star, a splendid op-
portunity to show the ability which
has made her famous. If you like

ten Fragonards of the J. Pierpont

more than $4,000,000. Three exhibi-

BIG PROFITS OF GRIDIRON
Football Is Easily the Greatest Money
Getter Among all College
To any one who has seen even one •
of the minor fall contests upon tho
gridiron it will not be surprising to
learn that football is th6 greatest
money-maker among all the college
sports. The prolits in any other held
arc comparatively negligible, and tho
lootball surplus each year helps to
make up some of the deficit that re-
sults from maintaining unprofitable
athletics. It is reported that Harvard's
receipts from football last year were
$114,864, of which $74,713 represented
clear profit, while Princeton received
$67,313 and achieved a neat profit of
$32,322. These aro gains of which
any porfesslonal athletic enterprise
might well feel proud, even In a sea-
son far less abbreviated than that in
which football has to make its money.
So It Is scarcely surprising that tho
athletic authorities of the colleges re-
gard football as their most important
sport. But the game holds that pres-
tige not merely because of the fine
showing made by its financial balance
sheet. It seems rather that the large
income is to be attributed to tho
, prestige of college football as an ex-
' elusive and unique game. It occupies
a lield in which the undergraduates
have everything practically their own
way and are not yet disturbed by pro-
fessional competition. As a sport it
enjoys the " special distinction of tho

"I went to see a bull fight once,
and one of the bulls got mad and be-
gan to tear things up fearfully. One
of the poor horses got mixed up in his
harness and fell down. The bull saw
the horse and dashed over to gore
him to death. I couldn't bear to see
such a cruel sight, so I jumped into
the arena with a pistol in my hand.
When I got near the horse I found
there was only one bullet in the gun,
and 1 paused to think what to do—
shoot the horse or the bull.''
'Well, what did you do?"
"I shot the horse, because I fig-
ured 1 could shoot the bull any time."
