on In most West Virginia towns end
while business so far has been big it
baa not been small enough to be in
any way discouraging.
The Court Theater at Wheeling will
open next Wednesday with" Marie Ca.
hill In "The Little Cherub" and the
Grand at Fairmont will open Sep
teinber 2 with the Morrison Comedy
Company, a repertoire organization
which Is well spoken of elsewhere.
The theater at Charleston, one of the
houses at Parkershurg, the Grand at
Wheeling, and other theaters are reported
to be doing weil while the moving
picture theaters In nil parts of the
State are not only doing well now but
have had a big business since throwing
open their doors.
Theatrical business In West Virginia
last season was -very good.
While other sections of the country
reported a falling oil In business the
profits of the local theater were the
largest since It opened and almost
every theater in the State had good
business. That West Virginia Is h
good show State Is proven by the efforts
of the tbeatrlcal syndicate to
gain a footing here and it goes without
saying that If this section did not
look like the best seotion of the country
In which to make Investments Nixon
and Zimmerman and other eastern
firms would not be In the market for
leases of amusement places In the
more Important,towns.
That the moving picture business
Is now one of the greatest factors In
amusements Is proven by an article
In this week's "Billboard" in which h
takes nearly three pages to cover the
Aim Industry of Chicago alone. An
editorial In that paper alBO brings out
an Interesting phase of the telegraph
strike. It claims that the showman
Is the biggest Individual patron of the
general system 'of telegraphy, and
goes on:
"The wire strike makes It bad for
the show business. When showmen
are forced to conduct their correspondence
by mall It means delays that cost
money and much Inconvenience that
Indirectly represents dollars and
cents. The big firms that have a
number of attractions on the roa-i
can hardly estimate their losses growing
out of the trouble that has rendered
It precarious, when not Impossible,
to send messages."
The front page of this week's Dramatic
Mirror" Is given over to photographs
of Henry Kellar and Howard
Thurston, the two greatest magicians
In the world, who have recently Joined
hands, for the purpose of giving
the biggest and beat entertainment In
the line of magic ever offered In this
Both men have won fame and fortune
beading their own companies,
and their combined talents should result
In an offering that cannot fall to
command attention. Kellar has toured
the United States season after season,
with unvarying success, and each
season has added to his following people
who like to see new illusions capitally
performed. His expose of the
tricks used by Spiritualists has always
been a very strong card, and
the incessant flow of good humored
pntter than nccontpanles his perform
nnce keeps the Interest of tlie spectators
at the high pilch. While Thurston's
methods differ greatly from
those of'Kellar, he Is none the less
clever. He goes about his work silently,
allowing his tricks to explain
themselves. For the past few years

The Fifteenth National Irrigation
Congress win convene m tne ceuiur
of -what Is probably the grestest single
Irrigable area on the American
.continent, and certainly the greatest
Irrigation project that the National Reclamation
Service has considered since
its organization. This la the great Interor
valley of California, tbe valley
of the Sacramento and of tbe San Joaquin.
It Is five hundred miles In
length and comprises approximately
ten million acres, an area so vast that
even In their wildest enthusiasm?and
the Reclamation Service officials are
enthusiastic over It?they have had
no thought of more than a mere beginning,
at least, for the present.
The National Reclamation Service
Is now building twenty-five projects,
that when completed, will irrigate 3,198,000
acres. These projects will
cost sixty rnllHon dollars, and will
provide farms for 150,000 farmers.
Measured by existing standards these
twenty-five projects will maintain In
comfort and plenty a conblned rural
and urban population of 2,000,000, or
one-fortieth of the entire present population
of the United States,
The building of these projects means
the addition of a vast area to tbe cultivated
lands and provision for a vast
Increase In the population of the United
States. So great is this prospective
addition that 1t Is a matter of Immense
importance to all the people
of the whole United States, for It
means a large Increase In the agrlcul
tural projuction upon wnicn me maintenance
of our present prosperity so
largely depends. It means new and
greater opportunities for those who
seek lands and homes, and new avenues
of trade and commerce. The
Importance of the addition of such an
area devoted to the most Intensive
form of agriculture can hardly be overestimated,
and yet the total combined
area of all these projects is less
than one-third that of California's
great volley.
California's valley extends in a
northerly and southerly direction from
the thirty-flfth to the forty-first parallel
of latitude. Were It possible to
transfer It to the same latitudes on
the eastern coast of the continent, it
would include the city of New York,
on the north and extend sratheward
to Cape Hatteras, on the coast of
North Cnrolina, and Include within its
boundaries five cities of New York,
Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Baltimore,
Washington, Richmond, Norfolk and
This great valley enclosed by steep
and rugged, though forest-covered
mountains, presents a great opportunity
for Irrigation development on a
colossal scale. The; water supply fs
ample, hut little of it is used for irrigation
because this has been the lah.i
of the princely wheat jarms for which
California is famous, and the development
of Intensive farming systems
has only lately begun. Within the past
few years several irrigation canais
have been constructed and now It is
proposed by the engineers of the Nation
Reclamation Service to construct
a mammoth system of engineering
works by which the whole of this
splendid prairie may- In time be converted
Into a land of little farms supporting
a great population.
Plans (or such a project have been
partly worked out, but are still Incomplete,
For nearly ten years the
United Slates Geological Survey, and
later the National Reclamation Service,
have been making surveys and
investigations in this valley and the
contiguous water-shed. Streams have
been measured, a topographical survey
of the valley floor begun, the underground
waters studied. Mountain
valleys suitable for storage reservoirs
have boon sought out and measured,
for the summers are rainless in California
nml the winter flow must be
held back by great dams. Fortunately
nature hns been liberal In providing
natural storage basins, and investigations,
so fnr as they have proceeded,
ind'lcte that every available irrigable
acre may be supplied with water.

to give a decided impetus to '
