The cartoon show has come to slay.
There can be absolutely no doubt
about this as the success of these shows
prove that the reading public want to
see thotr favorite cartoon characters
In flesh and blood. The people of
Hlllsboro will be glad of the opportun
ity to see Oscar and Adolph on Thurs
day, Nov. 0 at Bell's Opera House.
' Oscar and Adolph" have endeared
themselves to the American people
with their foolish German antics and
surrounded as they are now by a
clever and competent company and
a Broadway chorus they have more
than made good. In fact, it Is doubt
ful If any show of all the big musical
comedy successes has the "punch"
this Weber-Fieldlan production pos
sesses. The new production this sea
son Is labeled "Oscar and Adolph as
Kings of the Movies." The music Is
catchy and brilliant and the chorus
numbers go with speed and a snap
that is refreshing. It is a fact that
over one hundred and fifty chorus
girls were tried out for this piece be
fore the producer had a chorus that
could execute the intricate dances
that Director VonGottfried worked
out for the production. The result is
a perfect singing and dancing chorus
that sbeels through the show with
speed ana precision.
With such clever and capable Ger
man comedians as Harris and Winters
playing the title roles, there certainly
will be one laugh feast. adv
Oscar and Adolph Coming.
These Inimitable German dialect
comedians, Oscar and Adolph sur
rounded by a great dancing and sing
lng chorus in their newest review is
the next attraction at Bell's Opera
House coming on Thursday, Nov. 5.
The advent "of this internationally
famous pair of mlrthmakers to the
musical comedy stage marks the re
turn of the Rogers Brothers style of
entertainment which met with such
spectacular success until the demise
of one of the famous brothers. This
year Oscar and Adolph appear as
"Kings of the Movies." A new up-to-the-minute
review entitled, "Frolics
In Filmland," affords the two advent
urous Germans unusual opportunity
for comedy situations.
"Oscar and Adolph as Kings of the
Movies" Is a real Broadway musical
review fashioned after the successes of
the Winter Garden and The Casino.
A large dancing and singing chorus
surround the two funny Dutchmen
and up-to-the-minute specialities are
introduced all through the action of
the review. The Eight Dancing Rose
buds are the feature of Oscar and
Adolph's "Garden of Glorious Girls."
Some Tax Figures.
Notices are being sent to many of
the tax payers of Highland county by
the Democratic organization showing
how much loss taxes they are paying
this year than last. These notices of
course are being sent only to people
whose taxes have been lowered. In
some of the townships the rate has
been materially decreased, in some
slightly Increased. The Democrats
give all the credit for the reduction to
the Warnes Tax Law and Gov. Cox.
This is not true. The increase In the
valuation of the personal property In
the different taxing districts of High
land county Is not of itself great
enough to make any material decrease
in the tax rate. For instance the tax
rate has been lowered in Liberty
township 4.40 mills. The increase in
valuation was $50,825. The decrease
In tax rate will mean that $10,803.23
less will be raised In the township un
der the present rate than under ihe
old rate. The Increase in valuation
will raise $317 22. Which means that
Liberty township will have for all tax
purposes $10,480 01 less money than
The writer Is a firm believer in the
Warnes Tax Law and believes that If
given a fair trial It will prove a big
improvement over the old system, but
he believes that credit should be given
where credit Is due and the increased
valuation of personal property cannot
In this county make any material de
crease In the tax rate. It will help
and every little bit helps and It Is al
ways a pleasure to see a man who has
not been paying his just share of taxes
have to come across.

EoU, who had Just got homo from a
week's visit with the Farrlngtona at
their cottage on Black lake, wrapped
his feet securely around tho porch
rails and started an after-dinner cigar.
"Isn't It funny," he remarked, re
flectively, after a meditative puff or
two, "what a difference a summer cot
The little group on the veranda
looked at him lazily, awaiting further
exposition of his theme.
"You know," continued Bob, "I've
always been a little afraid of the Far
rlngtons, especially of Nell."
"That's because you're badly
nicked," said Sam, with brotherly can
dor. "A fellow's always afraid of a
girl when he's really nicked."
"No such thing." said Bob. "I've
never been one of the diffident, self
effacing kind that thinks he's a worm
In the dust whenever he compares
himself with a girl he happens to
"No, I'll say that for him," admitted
Sam. "Excessive modesty has never
been one of his afflictions."
"When you get through roasting,"
said Bob, pleasantly, "I'll go ahead
and tell you some more about my
"Yes, let's hear about the Farring
tens," said Jessie
"Well, what I meant by being afraid
of them was that I never felt quite as
though I could go to their house with
out making a kind of set piece of it
gloves and stick and visiting cards
and 'la Miss Farrlngton In?' with my
politest accent. It wasn't that they
were stiff or ceremonious or anything
of that sort. If they had been the
kind of people that sentenco you to
one chair when you come to call I
should never have gone near their
house They were always cordial and
Informal enough, but somehow even
their Informality always had such a
polite little finish to It that I used
to feel as though I never could be
quite so nice as they were, no matter
how hard I tried. Mrs. Farrlngton
would come In and put me at my ease
with just the correct little social
formula and Nell and I exchanged
amenities according to the precepts
she had learned at Miss Winter's
finishing school. Mr. Farrlngton was
friendly in a dignified way that seemed
to call upon me to address him as
'sir.' He would offer me cigars that
I never felt quite free to smoke until
Bert took me down to the billiard
room, though Nell and her mother al
ways Insisted that they liked cigar
smoke. Somehow I used to feel that
they would all be corking people to
know when I really got to know them
well enough not to be so polite, but
Bert was the only one with whom I
was on real comfortable scrapping
"When they invited me to go up to
their cottage last week of course they
told me tho usual story about their
informal, primitive way of living
back to nature and all that sort of
thing but I've been bluffed like that
before and wasn't prepared for the
"Was It a reality?" asked Jessie.
"I went up with Bert Saturday
night," narrated Bob. "When we got
to the place Sunday morning the first
person I saw wob Mr. Farrlngton. He
was on the dock in a bathing suit In
dustriously trying to untangle a fish
line. 'Hello, boys.' ho said. 'Hello,
Heaton! Give me a hand with this
blankety, blank line, will you? Say,
have either of you fellows got any
makings? The only thing I don't like
about life in Lonsomehurst Is that
it's so confounded bard to get a smoke
when you want one.'
"Then he took me Into tho boat
houso and showed me confidentially
eight black bass that he had bought
from a boy that morning and that he
was going to catch after breakfast.
By that time Nell came to the door of
"'Hello, kids!' she called out. 'I'm
so glad you're hre! Breakfast Is
leady, and I'm starved.'
"Collars and stiff clothes were rig
idly barred, and It didn't take me long
to get Into a sweater, where I stayed.
"After breakfast Mrs. Farrlngton
asked me in a matter-of-fact way to
turn the ice cream freezer, and as
Nell helped I didn't mind. Once,
when we were tasting the cream, wo
bumped our heads together and after
that we felt a lot better acquainted.
"Then we went In swimming and
dried in the sun on the dock, and Nell
and I stumped each other to hop over
the cracks on one foot. After that
she showed me how she could ride on
the flying Dutchman, a contrivance
that some children hod rigged in the
baok yard. It la a long board that
spins around on a pivot, and you have
to straddle It, jockey fashion, to stiok
on. When I asked Nell whether she
had learned that accomplishment at
Miss Winter's, the suggestion over
came her and she rolled off."
"I suppose when she gets back to
town you'll go around there to call
with gloves and stick and visiting
cards?" asked Sam.
Bob grinned. "Not on your life,"
said he. "After this I go around to
tha baok fence and whistle."
