THE LAVENDER SHOIfS.
Fine Pictures Affording Best of Re.
creation at a Minimum of
Seeing so many people going up in
to the old court house Saturday after
noon the writer followed the crowd,
thinking something unusual must b's
doing in that popular motion pichiJre
place. Mr. Lavender was having, ais
usual, some fine ?.l'ts running. The
writer found another reason why it is
that Mr. Lavender bas such a good
hold on the pumlic and why i.he conn
try people are joining the t.own and
the village people in fiocking to his
entertainments. It is this: Iu a4di
tion to three reels (some shows gor
the same money give only two), Mr.
Lavender had a fourth retl, that he
had to send off that afternoon, one
that he 'had already shown, but as
some of the audience from the coun-,
try had not seen it 'he reproduced it
for their bene!ft.' Only 'one out of a
great anny eixhibitors would take such
trouible andr pains.'
It is such as this, coupled with' his
wel--known liberality and his will
ingness to share proceeds for church
and charitable w-ork, that makes Mr.
Lavender take so wel.l in the moving
picture business, and it is his appre
ciation of the 'generosity and good
feeling on the part, of the public that
makes him keep his entertainments up
to the first-class standard. It is a
combination of excellent pictures and
friendly manager that attracts the1
populace and draws the crowd.
Then, it is worth while to attend a
good moving picture show. It is a
pleasant place to go for recreation,
amusement and enjoyment. And it is
the kind that benefits. There is no
bad after-feeling and reaction. It is1
bright anticiptation, delightful *mein
oies repeated, day after day. It varies
the monotony, exp4inds the mind,
bightens the intellect, aids digestion,
quickens good impulses and restores
the equilizrium to see such pietares
in motion-ships sailing the sea -with
its restless waves, trains coming and
going, Indians and hunters on the
beautiful plains and in the mountains
and forests and valleys and by the
little streams, with drama and
tragedy, as well as comedy, enacted
true to life. It is wonderful, remark
able. For ten and five cents better
entertainments are put before you
each afternoon and night than you
have seen by paging 75 cents and
$1.00. See the picture show. Keep it
