PICTURES PASSION PLAY CALLS POR REC oRD ATTENDANCE AT BIG THEATER. Yesterday afternoon and evening the bIg theater was crowded to its ca pacalty to witness the reproduction of the etUqgu Paysion Opl . In the .tteillh o4er. 110 s"s . htI show, and last night nearly 2,500, which proves .oocluslvely that It is the best and most iattative picture that could pos sibly be shown. Mr. Thomnu F. McDonald, the lee turer and owner of the film, is quite popular in Missoula and, knowing his ability as his many friends do, his lecture proves an additional drawing card. Mr. McDonald's film Is the actual reproduction of the world-famed play taken at Oberammergau, and is but six weeks' old. having been pur chased from the Pathe Freres' company about February 1, 1912. Mr. McDonald Is taking the picture through the state and playing the big theaters. Lecturer MoDonald wishes the Mis soula public to witness this play, and if anyone is not satisfied that it is the production he claims, he will gladly refund the admission fee. It is really a most wonderful film, and nothing in it that can be considered sacrilegious. Irreverent or offensive to any Christian of any denomination. The play is di vided into three parts and sacred music is played all during the show. This will be the last day at the Hlar nots, and those who have not had the opportunity to witness the big feature should take advantage of today's spe. cial show, and make an effort to at. tend. The children will be adinltt. J for 5 cents at the afternoon's per formance, wh'ch will start at 3 o'clock. The evening peforntance will start at 7 o'clock and run continuously until 11 o'clock. In no other way. short of a personal visit to Oberammergau. In Bavaria. at the tine of this stupendous enact inent, calln so lasting a realization ,of the crucifixion of c'hrist be made. It appeals to every lChristian. particu larly at this time of year, beinlg the Lenten season, and Good Friday only a few weeks distant. BITTER ROOT FRUIT IS PRAISED DULUTH BUYER SAYS MARKETS WILL DOUBLE IF PACK AND GRADE IS BETTER. A collmnlllllcaltiol recelved yesterday from A. W. Morley,. manager of the Minnesota Flruit company of D)uluth. t> the Missoullla Chambelr of 'olnlmmerce gives sollee intetresting history as to Just how the apples of the districts in western Montana are consilereid . Mr. Morley writes: "During the year 1910 we handled .even cars of appeles outl of tile ilttelr itoot valley, and In 1911 we used 12 ears, and11 we see no reason why this shouldl not be doubled In 1912. W'e bellieve, however, that if tile grow ers and packers would 'be just, and send out nothing but first-class stock, that thie Bitter Iteot valley would be second to none In regard to quality and qualntity which might be shipped from Montana."
