offerlag replete with that . eaart
brlffcy material which won for them
such faror at th American Music

Ifuaic hall ta. Chicago. The Krone

rn 1cm ee who have played all of the
big circuits freanently and are of
auSdent merit to come here. They
will add to the bill a classiness
which there are no other acta of that
kind that could contribute. Alf T.
James & Co. will present a comedy
sketch which, la one of the laughleet
playlet on the boards, according to
advance reporta. Earl Flynn and
Nettle McXAUhHn will brln to
Rock Island a singing and dancing

AT THE MAJESTIC
The new policy goes into effect at
the Majestic next Monday afternoon,
when prices will be lowered all over
the house. Manager Qulnn and Owner
Sodlni declare that 10 and 15 cents,
the former for balcony and the latter
for parquet. Is high enough to pay for
vaudeville In Rock Uland. The mat
inee price will be 10 cents all over the
house. At neither matinee or night
will seats be reserved, the first come
the first to get the best seats. "The
cut Is all in the price," explained Man
ager Quinn. "Rock Island theatre
goers will soon, discover that fact We
do not intend to make our show a bit j
poorer than before. It is simply a de
Fire on our part to give vaudeville at
a price That a person can pay and no:
i fe! It. We claim that la rents should
; entitle a person to a good show, and
we arp going to give it to our parron?
I -want the people to come and judg5

I have no doubt but that they will
