BEATRICE McKENZIE AT THE
WASHINGTON.—Upon the bill of
the Washington this week is one
of, if not the very best, story teller
and entertainer ever seen in this
city. He is Al Lawrence. The
comedian Is presenting an act that
is a sure cure for the blues, and
if you are not feeling well these
summer days, don't take a tonic,
but see Lawrence, and forget all
about that tired feeling, for he will
make you laugh in spite of your
self. Black and McCune in their
absurd military acrobratlcs are an
other team of fun provokers.
ORPHEUM.—SeveraI numbers of
particularly high class are offered
o nthe bill at the Orpheum ..this
week, notably the Bama I&ma
Oirls, Stepp, Mehlinger and King in
a delightful musical number, and
Lew Anger, a German comedian as
good as the beat of them. The
Bama Bama Girls have a showy
offering, in which bright and tatchy
songs are interpolated and a num
ber of pretty costumes are worn.
The act of tSepp, Mehlinger and
King is a lively one, marked by
■some particularly good singing and
playing on the piano and banjo.
The travesty at the close of the act
is a scream. Lew Anger in his
monologue is a laugh'from start to
finish, aad he is original and humor

foolishness," said Signor A. Liberatl

Signor Liberati is emphatic in
saying that the appreciation of the

great in America as in the old
country. ,He says that he arranges
the same program for Spokane as
he does for Berlin, Paris, London or

Treat Your Son Better Than
Your Father Treated You
You axe proud of your boy and you want him to be both happy and successful.
You would like him to have an easier time than you have had in getting ahead in the world.
Suppose your father had bought you a lot when you were a boy. What would that lot be worth today?
Suppose he had bought it for you twenty years, or fifteen years ago, or even five years ago. What could you
sell it for now?
Think how gladly you would have helped pey for it in your boyhood, either in working for your father or
out of your spending money, and how proud you would have been of your first Real Estate investment.
Can't you picture yourself saying, in boyish tones, "This is my lot."
Your boy is now right where you were years ago. He is just beginning life. If you inculcate lessons of
thrift and teach him what small sums well invested will do, you have done more for your boy than if you left
him $10,000 in your will.
BUY YOUR BOY A SPOKANE PARK LOT.
Then help him pay for it. The terms are $10.00 a month. Make the boy earn part of it. Stand back of
him so that he is sure to pay out, but make him help. Find little odd jobs for him. The lot can be paid for at
less than 33c a day.
When your boy goes to college that lot can be sold and the money used to pay his tuition fees, or it may.
start him in business. Besides, he will have learned a great lesson on the value of investing small sums. He
will get from $700.00 to $1,000.00 for a lot that now costs only $200.00, and can be bought at $10.00 a month.
TREAT YOUR BOY RIGHT. GET HIM A LOT.
Spokane Park lots are on the edge of the three-mile circle, right in the center of the great growth of the
North Side. }r
Many big improvements are going on on fl\e North Side. Street car lines have been extended. Mill street
is being paved. The members of the Country Club are putting up a magnificent $50,000 building, which is to
be complete in September. They propose to make Mill street one of the most beautiful drives in the city.
Now is the time to invest, while they are working on these improvements. Come up to the office. Let us tell
you about our property. We would gladly show you over the addition.
You will be under no obligations to buy,' but we know if you want to see that your boy has a better start in
life than you had—this is your opportunity.'
