bers of townspeople and quite a num
ber of out-of-town visitors. All the 1
*ork shown was of high grade and 1
showed in concrete form the emcien
ey of the school. In the manual train
lng departments the work was very
striking. A lot of well finished and
artistic furniture made by the pupils
was on display and elicited many
dsome compltments. The wireless
was also exhibited and many had a
chance to hear the instruments re
eelving messages. A special feature
was the manipulation of the dippings
vat made by the pupils at 10 o'clock
for partleular inspection by farmers
and cattle raisers. In the domestic
science department were some lovely
creations that attracted the high
praise of the ladies. Also illustra

A Remarkable Historical Photo-Play.
There are many so-called "historl
eal" photo-plays that are historical
In title only. The subjects are but
Fantasies founded upon fact bet with
out regard to accuracy of the events
of episodes depicted. They may be
pictorial novels, but they are hardly
of any educational value. It has re
-maied for the Selig Polysoope Co
to make a film that would at onee be
photographie.ly perfect and historic
ally aesurate. Such a film is the re
marhabl produdeat of "The Comig
of ,(olumbsi".: This is a br+-rel
fisl, the mlkting of: whech
years of researeh sad labor, eoapio
ed a mt at s0 peoplesndost $SO,
Such records of his voyage and the
discovery of the Western Hemis
phere as Columbus left were followed
as closely as possible in the making
of this wonderful photo-play. Every
facility of the greatest motion pic
ture plant in the world was utilized.
The duplicates of the three caravels,
Santa Maria, Pinto and Nina, which
the Spanish nation had built and pre
sented to the American nation, were
fitted with sails and made seaworthy
by Mr. William Selig and employed
in the production. Even the original
log-book used by Columbus is shown.
The early vicissitudes of Columbus
are depicted. His pleadings before the
Spanish Court, his final commission
to go forth on his exploration of the
unknown seas, the Incidents If the
voyage, the landing on American
soll, the return to Spain and the
great reception are all faithfully por- -
trayed by competent actors and re-,
corded by the camera. There is not'
one defect in the entire production,I
which is the grandest masterpiece in
the history of the motion picture in
dustry. It is not known definitely as
yet, whether this remarkable three
reel masterpiece can be secured for
exhibition purposes in this city, but
the Jefferson Theatre is making ev
ery effort, and offering large sums of
money to secure this feature for its
patrons gad expects to be' able to
make a favorable announcement
within a few days.
