on a par with those offered by Bur
ton H. Holmes in his famed lectures,

er cities. A representative of Mr,
Howe was in Rock Island yesterday.
"Mr. Howe, because of poor patron
age in Rock Island, dropped the
city from his tours for three years,"
be said, "but he has decided to try
your people once more, confident in
the belief that they will respond
more numerously than they have in
the past when they realise the high
class ectertainment that la to be
presented. We gave our Travel

a large trl-clty audience. Mr. Howe
wants to place Rock Island perma
nently on his route, and for that
reason is returning after an absence
of three' years."

haa no idea of what was involved in
taking the Klnemacolor views of the
coronation which will be shown at
the Illinois next Monday, nor any
conception of the difficulties that had
to be niet even before, work could be
started, let alone what was encoun
tered when the picture taking ac
tually began. When Klnemacolor

were had, and at vantage points the
