Miss Esther Anderson, who was for

As there have been several applica
tions for a Spanish class, arrange
mepts have been made for one which
will meet Tuesday afternoons from
four to five, immediately following
the Trench class.
Yesterday afternoon a most en
thusiastic class of girls were given
instruction in tennis at the associa
tions courts next to the Homestead,
under the direction of Miss Tupper,
physical director of the association.
This afternoon from three o'clock
on the class in basketball will meet

And Your Own Table
At the last meeting of the board
of directors of the association it was
decided to engage a domestic sci
ence teacher from the mainland to
take charge of that branch of the
work. There have been many appli
cations by the members for a class
of this kind, and as a suitable teach
er could not be found in" the city it
was found necessary to engage the
services of one from the coast.
BURLESQUE I'MOVIE" IS
Three comedies, and one good old
melo-dramatic subject, is the picture
offering at the Empire Theater for to
night, while Doyle and White, the
singing duo, and Martyn and Flor
ence, comedy jugglers, comprise the
vaudeville portion of the program.
Of the pictures, one entitled "The
Stuff Dreams Are Made Of is about
as novel a comedy picture as has ever
been manufactured, it being a bur
lesque drama, with the "villainous"
villain and "heroist" hero it it pos
sible to imagine, with most impossi
ble escapes and rescues, and all done
in a genuinely artistic burlesque style,
making the subject most ludicrous.
A particularly interesting event in
connection with this picture is the at
titude taken by the Oriental patrons,
the majority, being unaccustomed to
burlesque, believing the picture an
attempt at genuineness. They are
loud in their exclamations of disgust
when the hero beats the prison door
and the scenery falls, and when the
villainess locks the heroine in a mam
moth safe and without effort tosses
the safe through the window, only
to be caught in the waiting arms of
the hero as the safe reaches the
ground. These things are not grasp
ed by the average Oriental, and their
comments on the picture are a good
part of the performance.
LIVING ART STUDIES
TO REPRODUCE PAINTINGS
Patterson's Art Studies will present
their first ehange of act at tonight's
performances at the Liberty Theater,
it being an entirely new departure In
the posing line. Reproductions of fa
mous paintings, in colors, will be the
nature of the change from last week's
reproductions of famous statuary, and
tonight's turn is said to be even more
artistic and interesting than the ini
tial offering of Patterson's aggrega
tion. The Lancaster operatic seven are
on the last week of their local en
gagement and continue to please with
their excellent singing, and these
turns, In addition to a very good pro
gram of moving pictures, make up a
very good evenlng'B entertainment.

AT THE HAWAII.
That "thrill" promised by the man
agement to the "cool, cozy and com
fortable" Hawaii Theater, must have
been felt by the' large audience last
night S.R.O. tickets were sold at both
shows and then everyone couldn't get
in who wanted to. As a story or
piimeval passions worked out in gest
ures and actions, instead of words, tn
"Tragedy of the Desert" is a blue-rit
bon winner. The scenes fairly trans
port one away from the conventional!
ties, and the smell and burning glart.
of the desert sands pervade every
thing. Two other reels, a wescern
drama and a good comedy, rest the
patrons after tne tenseness of "The
Tragedy." The same bill repeats to
night and gives the ones who missed
it last night another chance.
