ronage in the Ninth district, j
When seen nt Senator Swan-]

this reply to a question as to]
the cause of Iiis visit to the

"1 am here at the rennest of I

with a view to doing what I
can to bring about sonic plan
of distributing the patronage
1 have heretofore declined i>>

Phut is, 1 am not interested my?
self in behalf of individuals,
hut I am interested myself in

THEATRICAL
By Bus
A fair sized audience, con
Bidering the inclement weather,
was in attendance at the lusi
Kathlyn picture shown at the
Ainu/.o. A greut deal of in?
terest is being shown in this
series of pictures, which is the
most superb and thrilling over
shown here. Miss Williams
shows betself more in every
picture to be an ideal heroine
for tbe story. The photography
is superb ami the settings simply
unbeatable. To study the pic
lure we see a mystery unfolding
itself which is nut impossible,
yet exciting enough to make
the blood tingle. No. 4 of the
adventures of Kathlyn will be
shown on next Tuesday night.
The following is a short synopsis
of tbe story: One good escape
appears to inspire the hectored
herione to make another,; bo
after eluding the savage senti?
nels in The Temple of the Lion,
she Hees to the jungle. There
she encounters lions, leopards
and tigers, and finally falls in?
to tbe hands of Arab tradesman
and is sold into slavery*. In
this transfer of human chattels
tho unwilling queon finds her?
self the property of the hateful
villiaa Lmballah, and her de?
fiance of him is heroic. This
article would be incomplete
without mention of noxt Satur?
day night's feature, "Wrecked
in Mid Air," a Kline-Eclipse in
3 reels. The story features Joe
Hamman, whose dare devil
feats with an aeroplane beforo
tHe camera are well known to
picture fans. In this picture
he Hies a Bloriot monoplnnne,
and with his wife in the ma?
chine with him it blows up
several hundred feel, abovo the
earth, parrying theeouplodown
with it amid a shower of debris.
There is neither subtitle nor
film cutting to give an air of
unreality to this picture, it is
merely a hazardous and danger?
ous feat that would have consti?
tuted an Associated Press item
had it happened to a well known
aviator as it did before the
camerar The picture is charac?
terized by beautiful photogra?
phy and splendid acting.

The above program, given by
Miis Vineyard and her pupils
in the school auditorium last
Friday evening, was one of the
best and most enjoyable ever
given in the history of tho
school. Tho ease anil grace
with which the little one per?
formed without their notes was
marvelous and speaks wonders
for Miss Vinoyard's ability as a
teacher.
The climax was reached in
the latter part of the program
when the more advanced pupils
rendered so excellently the welt
chosen music from the host
composers. Bach pupil showed
the result of careful, earnest
training on the part of their
teacher, and attention is called
to the splendid improvement in
teaching expression.
The recital was attended by
one of the target and most ap?
preciative audiences ever
gathered in the Gap, which is
highly complementary to Miss
Vineyard, us this is her first
year as a music teacher. We
congratulate her on her success
and bespeak for her a brilliant
future as a teacher. Miss Vine?
yard leaves in a few weoks for
Cincinnati, where she will con
tinue her studies at the Cincin?
nati Conservatory tinder Mr.
Leo Paalz, to whom she gives
much credit for her success,
although she possesses unusual
ability as a teacher. She will
return in time to begin her next
year's work in August und
feels certain that !ter work in
tho future will be un even more
pronounced success than her
past work, which is, indeed, of
the best.
