melodrama on the road. It contains
four big acts arid four big sensations
that are entirely different from any
thing ever produced on the stage. Its
gorgeous .scenery, marvelous effects
and wonderful stage mechanism, are
a paragon of realism. A heart story
that carries one with wondrous inter
est from South Africa to the Sierra
Nevada Mountains makes a daring ad
dition to a plot which furnishes, be
sides its romance, the thrill of bravery
as exemplified in the "Human Pendu
lum" and the great "Swing for Life."
Moreover there is a charming vein of
comedy which runs through the stony
as it is told dramatically, and there is
nothing lacking in the way of special
ties, which serve to liven things as the
whirling scenes succeed one another.

standard of excellence in chorus sing-
ing." The cluib meets every Tuesday
evening at Twin City Hall.
MEN'S SUNDAY CLUB.
The initial meeting of the Men's
Sunday Club last Sunday was in all re
spects gratifying. The paper on
"Educational Test for Election Fran
chises," by Mr. Joseph Houser, was
carefully prepared and held the close
attention of the audience. The discus^
sion of'- the subject in five-minute
speeches was lively and full of inter
est. Mr. Edgar Murphy, by special re
quest, delivered his oration, "The Pro
posed Disfranchisement of the -Afro
Americans in the South." Mr. Haynes,
recently of Lincoln, Neb., rendered the
solo, "Sailor, Beware," in a manner
that took the audience by storm. F.
D. Parker on next Sunday, the 28th,
will read a paper on "To What Extent
is Industrial Education as Outlined by
Booker T. Washington Solving the
Race Problem in the South?" The ob
ject of this club is to arouse an inter
est in those vital questions that affect
the welfare of every Afro-American in
this land, and the hope is expressed
that all will feel welcome to attend and
help by voice and presence to elevate
the standard of morals and good citi^
zenship in this community.
I wish to announce to the public
