At the Lyric
The management says
Just think of it Crowded again
last night despite the disagreeable
weather Well everybody knows the
Lyric Theater Is warm and comfort
able and that they will see a high
class vaudeville act and the best mo
tion pictures and they brave the
weather to be present If you have
any doubts about Palestine people not
liking vaudeville you should have
heard the hearty applause that was
given to the clever singing and danc
ing act of ODowd and ODowd who
opened a three days engagement last
night They are topnotchers when it
comes to handing out the real comedy
good singing and uptotheminute
dancing It is easy to see that they
will be a big drawing card for the
popular little vaudeville theater dur
ing their stay in ourcity
Tonight there will be projected over
four thousand feet of the very latest
and best subjects in motion pictures
Space forbids us giving a detail de
scription of them all but would espec
ially call attention to one of the fea
ture films entitled A Leap For
Life one of those excellent Kalem
pictures It is a dramatic story built
upon an incident of early Canadian
history The story deals with the
hardy settlers of Canada and the
warring bands of Indians who made
the White mans life one of great dan
ger during the pioneer days The pic
ture has correct scenic surroundings
and brilliant action

Albert Taylor Coming
Albert Taylor and company will
open an engagement at the New Tem
ple Monday afternoon r Speaking of
A Ragged Prince In which Mr Tay
lor will be seen here a press notice
A Ragged Prince Is one of the
very best of the romantic dramas and
the opera of Maritano is founded
on it It is not often played because
few actors are equipped for the re
quirements of the title role Barry
Sullivan was the greatest Bon Caesar
of his day and Alexander Salvini so
richly endowed by nature for such
roles made a great success in It
Since his death almost the only actor
of note who has attempted it in road
production was Charles B Hansford
so that to the younger generation the
play is largely unknown
Don Caesar defending a pretty
street singer from insult becomes en
gaged in a duel and is sentenced to
death Though the offices of a worthy
priest and a devoted page the bullets
of the firing squad are removed
When the soldiers fire Don Caesar
falls and supposing him dead the
priest and Don Caesars followers are
poimitted to move the body Don
Caesar escapos and remalnins In hid
ing Meantime the king falls in love
with Don Caesars wife Ho had mar
ried her bofore his supposed execution
while disguised but has never seen
her face as she was heavily veiled
The girl has been removed to Don
Caesars castle and Don Caesar ar
rives on the scene just as the king
Is trying to force his unwelcome at
tention on her Don Caesar is legally
dead and appears under a new name
but the king recognizes him and a
wonderfully skilled dialogue ensues in
which the king is shamed into man
hood pardons Don Caesar and ex
claims If I were not king I would
rather be Don Caesar the Ragged
Purify the sewers of the body and
stimulate the digestive organs to
maintain health strength and energy
