Ploolywood Choir Pleases k Large Congregation The large congregation of 212 at our People's Church last Sunday was richly rewarded and pleased with the sacred musical service given by the choir of the Plentywood Congrega tional church. They did not come to us as prefessionals. They came with the deep purpose of interpreting to us their Easter Cantata "Victory" by Wildermere as they have come to feel it in the long weeks of pre-Eas ter preparation. It was a beautiful Easter message sung in a spiritual way. A, Under the sympathetic direction of Mr. Mitchell and accompanied by Mrs. Ostby in her splendid manner, the choir brought this message in song with telling effect. It was evi dent that there were no exceptional ly talented voices, no more than can be found in any town and church. But with much work and earnest . purpose this not especially talented choir showed the possibilities open to any church choir for enriching the message of the church through mu SIC. It was very generous of the Plenty wood choir to come over 100 miles Sunday morning to share this rich musical feast with us with us. We .deeply appreciate it as was evidenced by the spontaneous praise of the large congregation of worshippers. Many said it was the finest thing they had ever heard in Sidney. Cer tainly no one who heard this Easter message in song could help but feel a new power and victory from the .risen Christ. After the service the Boones were particularly delighted to have their old friends from Plentywood to a pic nic dinner in their home.—Sidney Herald. none A MSQHS FINISH JACK LONDON'S FAMOUS STORY^^^^H 99 A 'TIFFANY PRODUCTION I FEATURING ANITA STEWART, MAHLON HAMILTON, JOHNNIE WALKER with VICTOR P0TEL, CRAÜF0PD KENT and ROSE TAPLEY ALL STAR CAST I TREMENDOUS SHOW OF THE FAR NORTH fOUNTRY r NOVELTY' FEATURETHS AND OTHER SHORT SUBJECTS, I VAUDEVILLE - gga»«!

Through a consolidation announced this week, the local F. S. Jones Com pany store will come under the man agement of the J. C. Penny Company beginning June 1st. This consolida tion is the result of one of the big gest deals ever made in the retail field, the Penney organization acquir ing control of 54 stores operated by the Jones company in six northwest-! ern states. When the consolidation was com pleted by E. C. Sams, president of the Penney Company, he announced there would be no change in the man agement of the stores, in each in stance the local store manager re maining in charge but operating un der the Penney plan. Although the volume of business of the 54 stores under the Jones regime was approximately $3,000,000 a year, with the advantages accruing through the consolidation with the J. C. Pen ney Company it is expected that this volume will speedily increase to $5, 000 , 000 . For more than a month prior to the completion of the consolidation there had been numerous rumors in finan cial circles regarding the change in management and ownership of the Jones stores. It was reported at one time that a group of midwestem fi nanciers had made overtures to the Jones people for purchase of the stores. This, however, was before the J. C. Penney Company had been mentioned. At several meetings of the officials and stockholders of the Jones com pany the various propositions were discussed. The Penney offer was deemed the most attractive and gave greater promise for future develop ment so the Jones officials, with con-, sent of the stockholders, accepted the proposal of the Penney Company.

The first foreign show to make Plentywood this year, is coming to the Farmer-Labor Temple Friday and Saturday, May 13th and 14th. Saby's Hypnotic show is the attraction. Mr. and Mrs. Saby, who have play ed at Medicine Lake this winter to a full house, are at present located at the Lake, where they are staying at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Manley Evenson, Mrs. Saby's parents. While in Sheridan County, they said they would like to give the residents a real hypnotic show. Their act will consist of hypnotiz ing subjects chosen from the audi ence,—anyone can come up. The things they are made to do are comi cal indeed,—so anyone with excep tionally tender sides, need not come, for they surely will ache when they get through looking at the perform ance. Mr. Saby said it was no difficult feat to get performers, in fact some times he has a hard time in keeping them back from being hypnotized.
