Besides the method given for tint

they are. remove the top of each tube
and see that the paint flows out easily
when the tube is squeezed. Manufac
turers of paints provide many colors
and shades ready to use, so that it is
not often necessary to mix colors.
A large china wash howl and a tin
pan are needed for this tinting proc
ess. When used, the bowl must be
perfectly clean and absolutely dry.
Gasoline for tinting must be left in an
air-tight can so that it will not evap
orate, and a small bristle brush must
be kept clean and dry, ready for use.
Tinting should be done in the open air
or near an open window, as the fumes
from gasoline often cause headache
and are highly inflammable. Never
do tinting in a room with a fire or
gas jet. Always keep the tops of tubes
screwed down, to that the paint will
not become hard.

The program, which starts at the

art is sure to be pleased by the

acts announced by Manager Arthur
B. White for the week.
First of all, as headliner, we shall
be permitted to see a travesty on the
old-time melodrama, in an act en
titled "For Pity's Sake," with Thomas
Duray in the leading role.
An added feature, one of those spe
cial attractions with which the Or
pheum management has so often
blessed us this season, will be the
often imitated but never equaled Lil
lian Fitzgerald, who has lifted herself
from the position of soubrette in some
of the large shows of the country to
a specialty in vaudeville.
Right next to this is a musical and
dance offering by three artists, the
beautiful Marmein sisters, Miriam and
Irene, who, with the aid of David
Schooler, present what they have
rightly named "A Revelation of
Dance and Music."
Next week we shall have the op
portunity to hear and enjoy the work
of another master of monologue,
