.ccal Committee Provides Select
Year's Program at Popular Prices.
THth more than 15,000 Lyceura,
rses in the United States, averng
\ e numbers each and attended an

?iin, wholesome hinter's entertain
. in this country is enjoying a
. -tantial and healthy growth. Thou
ds of towns and cities have learned
. cperience that a Lyceum course
. aeficial to community life in
ways. Only entertainment
[which is worth while can grow and
stand the test of years as the Lyceum
:(movement has done.
For the coming fall and winter in
?our community a choice program has
been selected by the local auspices,
, . \? tickets will be sold at popular
; . ?ces. A description of each number
ra this course follows :
THE GREAT LAURANT AND HIS
At a meeting in New York, attended
by 300 magicians, Eugene Laurant was
decorated with a beautiful gold medal
and later at a meeting of Chicago ma
gicians he received another gold med
>.l. This illustrates the high standing
?f the great Laurant among those of
?his profession as well as the public.
He has also appeared on several occa
ions before societies of scientific re
Each year Laurant changes his pro
gram, introducing big new features,
oth tricks and illusions. This season
ne is to have three assistants. One of
these will be Miss Helen Barnard, a
oornetist of great skill.
A beautiful musical opening has been
; rranged wherein Miss Barnard will
EUGENE LAURANT AND COMPANY
take the part of trumpeter. She will
also brighten up the Intermissions with
her musical monologues.
Mr. Laurant will also have his own
?pianist; also a stage assistant to han
dle his many properties.
I The production of the coming season
[will be equipped in the usual lavish
manner that has characterized all his
(entertainments, the stage settings sur
jpassing in beauty all previous efforts,
i For more than seventeen years the
[Great Laurant has been a Chautauqua
jand Lyceum headliner. For more than
,'tan years he has appeared under Red
path management, a fact which speaks
I During the years which he has de
moted to the Lyceum platform many
.(offers from vaudeville and theatrical
[managers have been turned aside by
.Mr. Laurant because he believed in the
Lyceum as a greater field in which to
present his work.
As a cartoonist and entertainer Miss
Evelyn Bnrgelt is notable for her orig
inality. Her program begins with a
group of chalk drawings, and from
this feature she proceeds with her de
lightful readings and sketches.
Following Miss Bargelt's entertain
ment in a Florida city not long ago one
of the newspapers commented as fol
lows: "Her very first appearance cre
ated great applause, and the volume of
appreciation and enthusiasm grew as
the entertainment progressed. Her
work throughout was of the very
cleverest sort and different from the
old-time chalk drawer's work."
During the entertainment Miss Bar
gelt introduces a number of interest
ing features, one of which is to select
some writings, either poetry or prose,
which she reads to the audience and
at the same time presents it in picture
fora, Thus she gives her audience ii
Her pictures appear on the canvas as
if by magic, beginning with a few sim
ple words and ending with a gorgeous
and handsome production. Her crayon
work is as comicul as her more digni
fied sketches are beautiful.
Miss Bargelt's highly pleasing per
sonality is another feature which adds
greatly to the success of her Drberams.
THE HONOLULU ENTERTAINERS.
The program of the Honolulu Enter
tainers contains more variety than any
heretofore offered our patrons. There
will be vocal solos, readings, planologs
and instrumental duets, and solos on
a great variety of stringed instru
ments. The program will feature
Hawaiian music and instruments of
various kinds, as well as American
James Ramsey Frew, manager of
the company and baritone soloist,
graduated from the Linder School of
Music, New Castle, Pa., 1912; played
violin with the Linder Orchestra, 1912

and will furnish an evening of strictly

That's What John Bunyon Johnson,
the Weil-Known Automobile
Salesman, Says of Martin's
One of the latest to add his un
qualified endorsement to Martin's
Liver Medicine is John Bunyon
Johnson, of Macon, ^a. In a letter
dated August 25, 1917, he says:
"It affords me pleasure to report
that I have taken Martin's Liver
Medicine and obtained most desir
able results. Martin's Liver Medi
cine is pleasant to the taste, does
not gripe nor inconvenience thc
taker in any way. It acts positively
and yet gently upon the liver and it
is my opinion that it is superior to
any liver medicine sold."
Martin's Liver Medicine is strictly
vegetable in ingredients, contains
no poisonous calomel, is pleasant to
take and is sold with the standing
guarantee that if it does not give
the effect desired, the empty bottle
can be returned to the <jrug store
and the 50c paid for it will be re
funded. As a medicine for consti
pation, sick headache or other liver
and stomach troubles, Martin's
