Mualeal Comedy.
IF Hippodrome The Man from Mexico
Nelson The Bargain
I Dixie Our Better Selves
) Princess In Search of Arcady
O PAR as numbers were concernS
ed, amateur night at the HJpp last
~ night was a failure, as only three
features were secured. We are not
, counting Rastus and his Dutch friend,
(you can't blame us for forgetting bis
name, he did It himself last night).
These two Iboys were very much In
earnest, and attempted a mysterious
trick, and they almost got away with
It,- but Schlitz overestimated his ca-,
parity, and Rastus asked a fool qucs,
tlon, and the act was just literally
ruined. Well, boys, keep coming
back, you may be amateurs some day.
Ed. Jenkins of the East side as a musician,
furnished most of the fun In
the amateur division. Some of his
' Illusions were pretty well done, and a
lot of fun resulted. The Hayes brothers
also of the East side, put on a box'
lng bout that was entirely too ^ame
an affair to represent the East side.
There are surely two East slders who
am a hnttar Krran than that.
Wh7 did they leave Harry Shaw ou?,
for Instance? Billy Knoto who came
to Fairmont with the Darktown Fob
lies last winter, was In for a dancing
; bee, but he did not have an understanding
with Dick Grady, the pianist,
and after giving only an inkling
of what he could do bowed himself off
.the stage. We hope he comes back
wjfext week, for ho is really a clever
dancer, and last winter set the house
wild with his dance number. Tonight
is the first showing of "The Man from
Mexico," and it Is said to be a very
lively afTair. Plenty of comedy, snappy
song and dances and pleasing cos'
tumes that are bound to get you, are
. all promised by Billy Malone.
If- William S. Hart Today.
Nelson is announcing the big six
reel Hart picture, "The Bargain," for

' i The Story Lady
Peter felt that he should be veryhappy.
But he wasn't. In fact he was
very, very unhappy. He had been
spending the summer with his grandpa
and grandma and had a very good
j titne.
Then his father and mother and all
the kids had come through the country
in an automobile and be realized
how much he had missed them all and
how anxious he was to get back to
the gang.
And now much to his surprise ann
disgust they were talking about not
taking him home with them. His
I grandfather had said something at the
table about It, one day. His argument
4 had been that as long as the lieutenant
had come and married Aunt Grace
and taken her away with him that it
) was no more than fair that Peter
V should stay with them. Papa had look,
? ed at An ainma and smiled and said that
Cjr It suited him all right and Peter supJ
posed the matter closed.
I. 'W Once papa had said something
' Twout teaching Peter to drive the car
on the way back and Peter's heart
| jumped for Jay. But grandpa had
said, "Oh, don't you remember Peter is
not going back?"
"I forgot," said papa smiling, and
{ Peter's heart sank to his toes.
I Peter was very quiet for several
< days and mamma thought he had eaiEen
too many peaches and gave him a
dose of castor oil. This was the last
straw and Peter spit the medicine on
the Door. Refusing to take another
, dose he took refuge in the hay loft.
' Here his father found him, tear-stained
and worn out with much crying. Peter
really expected a thrashing but his
[ father took him In his arms and Peter
K- gobbed out the whole story.
"It's a shame." said papa. "I supI
posed you knew we were Just Joking.
Tour mother hasn't really been happy
since you have been gone. And we
I came a whole week earlier than we in&
tended to because we were all no
spxlous to see you. We came on pur
pfese to get you and we aren't going
back without you. Is everything all
right now?"
Peter nodded. For once he was too
H happy to even talk.
