are being made to go into cane cul

northwest, Maurice and Milton in the
south, Carencro in the northeast, and
Lafayette south. Leel lands, open
country, over which transportation fa

Special at Jefferson Wednesday...
Wednesday night two special pic
tures which the management has 4
been trying to get for some time, will
be shown. The first is "Captain
Kate," one of Selig's great African
serials. In this film is shown tropi
cal scenes in Africa in which the
black maned lion is seen catching his
prey, and where leopards prove their d
courage by attacking a lion in de- 4
fense of their mistress.
The second picture is a "Society
Mother," one of Gaumont's series of
"Life As It Is". This series is of ex
ceptional merit and present dramas 1
delineating real life stories with real
life endings. Notwithstanding the
v.ery superior merit of these two Dic_
tures the price will be only 5 and 10c.
