THE UNIVERSAL CAR'
The Ford Coupe, with electric self starting
and lighting system, has a big, broad seat deeply
upholstered. Sliding plate glass windows so that'
the breeze can sweep right through the open
car. Or in case of a storm, the Coupe becomes a
closed car, snug, rain-proof and dust-proof. Has
all the Ford economies in operation and main
tenance. A car that lasts and serves satisfac
torily as long as it lasts. Demountable rim9
with 3j4-inch tires all around. For the doctor
and travelling salesman it is the ideal car.

The publicity managers of the great
$75,000,000 Baptist campaign believe
"the laborer is worthy of his hire,'
and are spending thousands of dollars
in advertising their plan in newspa

all over the country, taking a

no reduction on rates. They are ask

the press willing to give the great

"Tiger Rose" Thrills I
Two Big: Audiences

Tiger Rose", a melodrama of the
Canadian Northwest, presented at the
Greenwood Theatre yesterday, thrilled
two bjg audiences at both matinee
and night performances. The play
was all that was advertised and it
pleased.
The scenes of this stirring drama
are laid in the almost untrodden for
ests of that far away Alberta coun
try, just under 'circle 53.'
The play deals with the love af-j
fairs of Rose Bocian—-"Tiger Rose '
is the name ,a member of the moun
ted police has given her. She is one
of those picturesque women of the
North, a French-Canadian, bom of
an infidel father and a dance hall
mother and reared among men. She
meets a young American accepts him
as 'her man' because he is different
from others who have courted her.
He is accused of murder.
Then all the cunning, all the deter
| mination, and .the slumbering passion
! of the girl's nature is aroused in p
reckless attempt to save his life.!
! Aided by "Tiger Rosé ' the old doc
• tor< of the post, who finds out later
that he is the young man's father, the
fleeing youth escapes to a deserted
cabin to which he is tracked. Then
<4
there is a battle royal of wits, with
the young woman winning out.
"Tiger Rose" played by Miss Maria
Ascaraga, held the rapt attention of
the audience throughout the play,
j Her acting was superb and she was
of ; pronounced by many as the best dra
matic artist that has visited this city
in some time. Every member of the
; company was splendid.
