Woman's Com mittee Does Fine Work. Of all Richmond and Madison coun ty men and enterprises, the largest contributor to the country's call for buyers of Liberty bonds, was the Ma son & Hanger Company, with head quarters in this city. Sunday's Courier-Journal had this of interest: "The firm of Mason & Hanger and its offices and field organizations gave another good accounting of them selves. After completing one of the largest of the 16 army camps live days sooner than required by contract and below the average cost, they again came to the front with a liberal response to their conuntr's call for Liberty bond subscriptions. The field and office forces of the company sub scribed to bonds to the extent of $88, 400, while the firm of Mason ft Hang er took $100,000 of these bonds. All subscriptions were turned over to the camp quartermaster in order to help the officers and men of Camp Zachary Taylor to maintain the record the camp had established as a leader."

The attention of Climax readers is called to the advertisement of the Tri- State Butter Company appearing else where in this issue. The Tri-State But-ter Co. has been buying cream for a number of years and has always contended that the main reason the fanner couldn't get a good price for his butter was because the business was handicapped by so many com mission men there was nothing left for the farmer. The same danger lurks in the cream business and the Tri-State is calling upon the produ cers to sell their cream direct to the creamery for it means not only more money but it insures a good price for the future. At the Madison County Fair and Poultry Show, held in this city last week, Mrs. Grant E.

To the Patrons of the Alhambra and Opera House: The war has hit the motion picture theatres very hard and a large per centage of the smaller houses will no doubt be driven out of business. There is a tax on the seating capa city of $150; the new tax on admis sions of one cent on a five cent ticket, one cent on a 10 cent ticket, and two cents on a fifteen cent ticket; the war income, tax and the surtax on profits; a fifteen cent war tax on ev ery roll of film we show; tax on the express packages; telephone and tele graph messages; city, county and state taxes. In addition to these extraordinary burdens of taxation every single thing needed for the motion picture enter tainment has gone up in price. The cost of raw stock has increased; the cost of -production has increased; the operating expenses have increased, and labor costs more than ever. The management of this theatre proposes to meet its obligations to the government cheerfully and con scientiously and we will attempt to keep the admission price at 5 and 10 cents at the Alhambra, and 5, 10 and 15 cents at the Opera House, just the same as before and pay the war tax ourselves. This can be done, we think, by eliminating the orchestra and by support from the Richmond public. Otherwise the war tax will certainly force us to raise the admission price to 20 cents at nights, or close up the shows. The law plainly states: Section 00 War Tax Law: "The tax is to he paid by the person paying for such admission." But we try to pay this tax without a raise in admission. We wish to thank you for your past gen erous support. THE ALHAMBRA THEATRE CO. (Incorporated). . Great Pictures Coming. The management wishes to an nounce the coming of the new Art- craft, Goldwin Select and New Para mount pictures. These pictures have ne.r been shown are the highest priced films produced today. They cost just about three times the amount of the regular fea lures which we now show. The first Artcraft production will be shown on Tuesday, Nov. 6th, and they will be shown every Tuesday and Thursday thereafter. Such well known stars and plays as Mary Garden in "Thais;" Mary Pick- ford in "Rebecca of Sunny Brook Farm;" Clara Kimball Young in "Magda;" Norma Talmadge in "The Moth;" Douglas Fairbanks in "The Man from the Painted Past;" Mae Marsh in "Polly of the Circus;" Mar guerite Clark in "Amazons;" George M. Cohan in "The Seven Keys to Bald Pate," "The Garden of Allah;" Ger- aldine ' Farrar in "The Woman God Forgot;" and Alice Joyce in "Within the Law," are some of the many fa mous stars and plays that will be seen here in the next few months. These pictures are not ordinary features, but they are productions now being shown in the big cities at an admission of no less than 25 cents and as high as $2. No other town the size of Richmond in the United States, is showing these pictures, because they cannot afford the enormous rental price, but the management of the local theatres wishes to give their patrons the best money can buy, and we hope our pa trons will make every effort to help support these big pictures when they are shown here. There will be no advance in prices for these featurse so you should make it your business to see every one of them. Remember the first one is to be shown Tuesday, November 6th. The star and subject will be announced later. These pictures also include such famous stars as Julian El tinge, Wm. S. Hart, Billy Burke, Jack Pickford, Maxine Elliott, Madge Kennedy, Dor othy Dalton, Chas. Ray, Pauline Frederick, Elsie Ferguson, and Olga Petrova will also be seen in these big productions. 44 It ENGAGEMENT ANNOUNCED.
