Nor fine music. Nor yet a variety of forms of participation. Before all and under all and above all there must be prayer—sincere, continued, repeated prayer. It is possible to have great prayer meet ings without fine speeches or music, •o long as there is the earnest pray er of devoted hearts.

"Every line of amusement has had to readjust Itself as a result of the amount of money claimed from the amusement budget by the movies,” says Ed I>e Wiothe. of the Watson and Wrot.he company now In the Oayety. "Every theater that has eontlnued successful despite the competition of the moviee haa done bo because it haa Increased the value of its offering. Musical comedy and burlesque have been the least af fected by the moviee of any line of entertainment, simply because they appeal to the theatergoer with color, music and laughter—the first two of which at least are not Included In the movie art." W rot he and Watson in the long years they have been before the public have devoted them selves to burlesque, musical comedy and vaudeville. Recently, they have appeared on the movie screen also.

The Coot of Waterloo "What tha Battle of Waterloo Coeta Belgium," Is the title of an article in the Bolglan supplement to the tendon Everyman. The au thor Is Pierre Maes, a wellknown Belgian man of lattara. Among the many titles inscribed upon the mag nificent monument erected over tbe tomb of the duke of Wellington Is that of "Prince of Waterloo." "It is a fine title,” says Pierre Mass, "but to ua poor Belgians, the great-grandcblldren of the victims of 1815, that title brings up some un pleasant memories. We are atlll paying, and paying dearly, for this great man's glory. Eighty thousand francs la the total Interest entered yearly under the name of the duke of Wellington in our great book of national debt. The present duke re ceives from entailed estates in Bel glum revenues that reach the nice little sum of 2in.otv> franca. That Is one of the heaviest charges that the great coalition of 1815 has left us. Can we hope that the servlcek we have rendered Europe and the heroism our soldiers have shown will deliver us from It? Great Bri tain only gave him a sum of 200,000 pounds. The king of the Nether lands gave him entailed estates bringing 4n 210.000 francs." Aa the result of an arrangement between the Belgian state and the representatives of the duke of Wel lington the descendants of the great man today enjoy a yearly income of 80,837 franca.

A fine souvenir for every Boy. 1 would sooner have your friend ship than 83,000 grown-ups. For you, boys, know automobiles. You can stand on the curb and call them off faster than my own salesmen can. You can tell a Chalmers two blocks down the Boulevard. You can tell the miss of a cylin der quicker than I can. You can tell why a taxi-cab driver usually crashes his gears. And when anew car comes out, or anew model is presented to the public, you can pick it to pieces quicker or give it an O.K. quicker than all your Dads put together. Fancy your father buying a third-rate, little-known and little sold oar —without your having a word to say about it. "Not that one, Dad. I know what you want.” That is just about the com ment you’d make. And the salesman trying to get your father’s name down on a contract would never know, per haps, where the cyclone came from. * I know just how big a part you play in the purchase of a car, and for that reason I am going to do something that no one else in this town ever did before. I’m going to have a boys’ Day—down here at our new store, ways find a welcome and eager de sire for more.

I want you to sit at the wfyeel of anew 3400 R. P. M. Chalmers. You can study the engine and ask all the questions you want. Our mechanical and technical men will be prepared to answer any question. We want to show you our shops —how we tag a customer’s car when it comes in for repairs, how we estimate what it will cost to fix the car up, how we repair cars, how we sell cars, the system we have of keeping track of your father’s or uncle’s car or the gent leman’s next door. We want to get acquainted with you. Maybe we will ask you some questions about tbe things you like in a car. Perhaps we can get Mr. Chal mers to put some of these things in his next year's models. At any rate come in and see us —Saturday, April 15th, is the day, between nine in the morning and one in the afternoon is the time. Souvenirs will be given during those hours. Cos.
