GREAT VIOLINIST COMING Among the announcements for the musical season none is attracting more attention and interest than Die coming of Misclia Elman, famous alt over the world as a veritable wizard of the violin. Elman lias made sevei al tours of America since his d- 'nil in this country in 1909. and apparent ly there is no wane to his popularity; on the contrary if the number of con cert engagements is any standard ol comparison between his success and that of any other famous master ol the how and strings, it is an easy matter to see that the young Rus sian is at the head of Die list and joying greater activity than ever im' fore.

Elman has probably made more pieces famous than any iiolin ist living; he introduced a soon o' the dainty old classics three years age and today every violinist is embody ing them in his programs. Mr. Elman is under the American management of the Whlfsohn Musical Bureau of New York, the same firm that directs the destinies of Schn mann-Heink, Alma Gluck. Effrem Zimbalist, Josef Hofmann.

Marie Provost, and Arthur Conklin, of cross-eyed fame, are on the Idaho theatre's program tor Tuesday and Wednesday. The pro gram includes the usual two vaude ville numbers. Star of Great Ability It is the naturalness of Charles Ray that makes him so convincing and pleasing, and makes his work so delightful to the eye. This nat uralness was never so evident as in his picture of romance and "mak ing good" in the Texas oil fields. Mr. Ray is one of the very greatest por trayer of romantic characters the stage has ever had, and a big ac quisition to the collection of stars whose pictures are shown regular ly at the Idaho. Boy" proves this beyond the shad ow rtf a doubt. "His Mother's SCREEN CHATTER Thomas H. Ince, the noted direc tor of motion pictures, has person ally supervised the directing of Dorothy Dalton's latest Paramount production, "Love Letters," which was written for her by Shannon Fife, and which has a cast of un usual excellence, including William Conklin and Thurston Hall. The story treats an old theme in a new and novel manner—that of a woman obliged to fight to keep her hus band's confidence, who sacrifices all to obtain some old love letters she had indiscreetly sent to a faithless I suitor in her girlhood days. There I are several unexpected situations ! that leave the beholder in breath less interest waiting the denoue ment, which comes at last In a I highly satisfactory climax, bringing j the heroine in safety back to the I arms of her husband. 1 missioners of the general land office of the United States, determined upon the number of acres which it will re quest patent from the United States for and which will he included in either the Twin Falls-Salmon River Carey Act project or the Twin Falls Oakley Carey Act project, And whereas, the number of acres heretofore decided upon will result in a material reduction of the num ber of acres segregated for the pur pose of said respective projects. And whereas, the reduction of the said projects to the number of acres heretofore indicated by tills board will result in the exclusion of certain in dividuals, together with their filings, from the said projects, which will re sult in a depreciation of the value of the improvements placed upon their respective entries to the point of con fiscation of such improvements. Therefore, be it resolved, that a committee of one lie appointed for each of said projects to assess and determine the value of improvements placed upon all such excluded en tries, and report the same to this hoard, .giving legal subdivisions of land and the name of the entryman with items and character of value of improvements upon such entries. Al so indicating whether the entryman, at the date of said project, was a bona fide resident of the state of Idaho, residing upon the entry or was absent therefrom, or was not a resi dent of' the state of Idaho, and was absent therefrom.

I ME FEATURE MACK SENNETT COMEDY J FIELDS AND BROWN Comedy. Singing and Dancing LAWRENCE ORTH Singing, Piano, Accordian A well-known New' York critic called "His Hidden Purpose" a melo drama turned into a merridrama, and as everyone know r s laughter is ever close to tears, this is sure to be true. A series of situations so poignant, of incidents so heart-rendering that they have become side-splitting, makes it a whirl of laughter from start to finish. There is the persecuted her oine, the wdly villian, the brave hero and all the rest who go through a series of adventures varied enough to supply a half dozen comedians for life. There are actually three elopements, a robbery and several good all around fights-together with a truly exciting race, not a "fake" and many de liciously unusual situations. The heroine is taken by her scheming father to a remote country boarding house and it is there that most of the fun occurs. The Paramount-Mack Sennett comedy. "His Hidden Purpose," contains some of the most blood curdling feats of automobile dar ing ever attempted. Among these is a chase participated in by two motors and a motorcycle. This scene was taken during a furious wind storm which made driving ail the more difficult. The boy who drove the leading car was the same one who makes the Sennett cars skid in the comedies until they al most execute a waltz. His skill in this direction is so remarkable that he has been asked by several au tomobile companies to give special instructions to their drivers in the matter of controlling skidding cars.
