nent place on the cover of the pro
gramme of the Klks' minstrels at the
Margaret theater last night, and the
words quite fit the occasion.
Tile show was truly gre >.t. and Die per
formers achieved greatness in making it
so. The attraction was great in more
ways tha one, particularly in its soei-J
features, for society was out in full
force; the audience was probably the
most fashionable of any that ever filled
the theater.
Many gentlemen turned out with their
full dress suits; the ladies wore thei.
prettiest dresses; and talk about flow
ers!—they were there In profusion. Th«
audience was the largest that has filled
the theater this season, every seat was
sold and many aisles were filled w ih
chairs to accommodate those who put
off getting seats elsewhere until it was
too late.
Butte Visitors.
The center section of the parquette
was reserved for the members - of the
Overland club and visiting Elks from
Butte, and they filled every seat set
aside from them. The visitors were free
to express the opinion that the show
last night was superior in many respects

press agent; H. F. Colling treasurer;
Dr. J. F. Spelman, musical director; M.

Glass Pavements.
Experiments of importance and value
with respect to the use of glass pave
ments have been made recently in Eu
rope- In the streets of every large city in
the world, thorough tests of asphalt, of

stone have left much to be desired. If
the capitals of the principal nations can
use footings of specially prepared glass
in their crowded avenues of travel and
of traffic much may be gained in eco
nomy and endurance. And if glass pave
ments may be made so transparent as to
reveal the tricks and devices of roadway
contractors, the payers of taxes will sot
up banners.
