Harvey Taylor Is going to set aside for the colored children only has not been definitely decided upon as yet but this will likely be announced to-morrow.

Delightful and refreshing at all times on account of i the great system of ventilation. I Monday and Tuesday, "A Gentleman of Leisure," the photodrama from the play of the same name In which Wal lace Eddinser is seen as the star, un der the management of Jesse L. Lasky, is a genuine farce-comedy of situations. That is to say. the fun Is dependent neither on words nor on grotesque ac tions, but lies altogether in the actual complications of the story. The whole plot concerns the very amazing adven tures of a society "blood," who makes a wager that he can commit larceny and escape arrest, and who quite natur ally finds himself in a series of most embarrassing and unusual predica ments. It was so very unfortunate that he should, by accident, try this burglarizing experiment on the'house belonging to the father of the girl he loved—and so awful awkward that his prospective father-in-law should happen to be "Big Phil,' the police com missioner.—Advertisement.

You have only a few more days in which to get your winter's supply of coal at the Spring reduction of 50c per ton, except Pea and Buckwheat. You also save 25c per ton on Hard White Ash Pea Coal this month. We know of no city in this country where the Spring reduction is in effect during June.
