A inother bird built hr nest in a
fartine r's wheat field. Th1e 1in aiid
his son wallied through t the girain, to
see !, it was ready for the sickle. Otn
examn ation they ag'edol it was ripe
enough to cut. The farmer said to
his son, go out this evening and in
vite in our neighbors for tomorrow's
harvest. The little birds told their
mother about the harvest of the next
day. She said. "Childrei, be quiet.
there will be no wheat cut tomorrow.
The neighbors will not come." The
next day the farmer atid son took an
other stroll through the grain. They
concluded that the wheat must be
gathered in soon. Son, go and see our
kindred and tell them they are called
for a feast and harvest day tomorrow.
The little birdlings reported the see
ond talk to their mother. She said,
'Children, don't be uneasy. 'rlth re
w%'ill be nothing done tomorrow." The

another look at the wheat and they

IVIlla Triev Sentenced Four to Death.

Naco. Ar!z., 'Nov. 6l.-Four Ameri
'ants, rteasIed at \illa \erde yester
day by (Gen. \'illa, after three tines
having been condemned to death, ar
lived here today and narrated their
experiences as led Cross workers
among \illa's wounded on the battle
lield of Agna Prieta. The party con
sisted of 4Dr. It. 11. Thigpen, Dr.
Charles 11. liller and two chauffeurs,
Al Wilson and .1. 1). Platt. The two
physicians took to their beds upon
their arrival as a result of their ex
periences after an all light tramp
through the mountains.
Gen. Villa flew into a rage, Dr.
Thigpen said, when he learned that
the Americans could not obtain the
passage of his wounded over Ameri
can territory to Juarez.
"Treat the Americans as they treat
us."l he is quoted as saying to his
aids. "Do as you please, turn the
artillery on Duoglas and put these
men in front of the infantry." Inter
eession by Gen. Rafael Naive coupled
with fear of retaliation upon families
of Villa and his su bordinates inl the
U'nited States was responsible for the
safety of tile Anerieans. Dr. Tliigpei

Idle Hour Contracts for Mag

Believing that the returning prosperity and the in
creasing demand for the best in otiop pictures justify
the showing of a higher grade of ea iire pictures than
X we have ever shown regularly b e we have just
contracted for a semi-weekly service of the Paramount
Pictures Corporation, the greatest feature picture com
pany in the world. These pictures are stupendous pro
*g ductions and a large patronage will be necessary to
These pictures willl be shown on Mondays and
Fridays, ammouncements being made from time to
time as the exact program is arranged.
As it will be impossible for us to show these ex
pensive pictures at the usual admission price and pay
the high rental for them a slight advance to 5 and 15
cents will be made in the admission price.
We hope that our efforts to give the highest class
of moving picture service will be appreciated.
