Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 1, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February1,1913. THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD Pace 5 tmm Westminster Road The Street that is Showing the Biggest Development in the City N ------I � -- ......- . . | n|| . _......... i , ........_ THIRTEENTH STREET is now a business thoroughfare and owing to its geographical position in the city, will undoubtedly become one of the most important business streets in the city. During the coming year a tremendous amount of money wilt be spent in North Lethbridge and property mi THIRTEENTH STREET NORTH will undoubtedly increase in value during the next few months, A Few of the Things That Will Cause This Are:-- The construction of the new C. P. R. Freight Sheds; the construction of the Subway, the construction of the International Harvester Cd:s Building, the probable construction of[the great 1,000,000 bushel elevator and the probable construction of a New Hotel are Offering IS Lots Facing East on 13thStreet N., Block 162, on the Car Line at Reitttairkably Low Price of $6SO Each on Terms 1-3 Cash, Balance in Six Equal Payments in 3, 6, 9, 12, 15 and 18 Months with 8 per cent Interest There are no Cheaper Lots to be Obtained, Situated in an Equally Advantageous Position Sole Agents Real Estate and Financial Brokers Dominion Block Lethbridge Phone 1183 - i THE development of-Canada as a i'ield "for'tlieatrical' enterprise, about which .so much has been said from time to time by American atifl English, theatrical producers, could not, perhaps, be better, illnatrat-ed than by the fact that one of the most distinguished romantic actors of the,' llr. Lewis Waller,' is devoting three months of his entire theatrical year' to Canada, and v, 111 be seen at the Majestic Theatre, in this city, - on Thursday evening' im\>.. Ti.'e enormous financial and social success' with which Mr. Waller is being met on, his, *:rst Canadian tour, would apparently indicate an influx into Canada during the next several years of not only the great stars and productions 'from the other side' of the line,, but the splendid impression received .'toy. Mr.-Waller will, no doubt, induce the booking oil Canadian tours for. -celebrated European artists. With regard to Mr, Waller, it Is unnecessary to mention seriatim a list oC his successful productions, or say anything regarding his career, since he is already well and favorably known to those wh,o ."ollow theatrical event?. , , v Mr. Waller will Introduce here Alexander Dumas' attractive comedy "A Marriage of Cpn->onleni'o."- The Ez'Kl.'sh adaptation of the play comes from the pen of Sydney Ornnd.', whose b'uecess in'this repard has been very marked. I may say that it was th'j old custom in France, in fact,-in many parts the same custom holds sway today, that families who wished an alliance, marry off t'.oir sons or daughters into a family whici; best, suits them, regardless as to whether or not the young peojjle loved each other..'It is this theme which Dumas has woven-throughout "A Marriage of Convenience." The result is a comedy'Of amusing situations,, and one, moreover, which should . make an appeal because of its. arguments and advice-to -everyone, whether married or single. - . I can recommend very strongly to the theatre-going folks -in this city, Afr.

''ao�,-��' Tracked by Wireless An extraordinary three-reel feature will be shown at Starland on Monday and Tuesday next, in'the offering or the sensational attraction "Tracked by Wireless", a production conceded to be positively the wonder of the art of motion pictures. There, is not one dull moment throughout the whole action, for the' spectator is/ keyed up to the highest pitch of excitement with the never ending scenes of spectacularism and dramatic rendition. The onlooker is practically led from country to .country, over land and sea, by train and ocean liner, in the wild chase for Jack Morton, the criminal. An excellent week-end program, including the two reel feature, "The Paymaster's -Son" is being shown- for the last tinre today. � *  Monarch Theatre This afternoon and eveivng, the Monarch arc again able to oiler their patrons an exceedingly strong and well balanced program. A strong military drama, "The honor of the 7th" will appeal to all lovors of western military photoplays. "All on account of a handkerchief", and:"The Bug and' the Count" provide ample comedy of the right sort.  An excellent drama by the Powers Co., "Fate's Way", is, a beautiful production, after which the . audience are �)i;ain transported to laughland by the stream, "Tree Imps." The management can coniidcntly promise "their- patrons a'^edgram of extraordinary merit at'regular prices. At the' Empress An excellent programme-'was offered at the EmpressJ'and tlie'same will be shown tonight. '. Savah Bernhardt in' "La Tosca" will be one of the big features of the evening, this intensely dramatic tragedy, the story of which is laid in Rome in the year 1880, is one which should appeal to all; picture lovers. "The Sphinx," or love under a reign of t�rror, is another stirring drama, i , Eclair's "Pictures of Portugal" is a splendid collection of scenic views, while the comic farce "Willie Wants it' Free Lunch," is a side' splitter. Messrs. Cooper and Evans will sing that well:known duet "Excelsior." Mr. Cooper will also render 'the solo entitled "The Admiral's Broom," as an additional feature- to the big evening's programme. Tonight .will see the close.of the "4 Big Feature 'week," and the management is "to be henrtiiy congratulated upon the high class entertainment they �aye put up. � V -v. � ' * '' � van Bienne Is Dead August Van Bienne, known to theatrical audiences all oyer the" world as the composer and player of ''The Broken Melody," died on the stage at the Hippodrome at 'Brighton, Eng., a week ago (January 24)'.

Sir Michael "took him home after hearing him play, and gave- him a-place* as a cello player in the Covent Garden orchestra. The story of "The Broken "Melody," was partly founded on the composer's early struggles, the haunting melody which runs through the play being composed on a return journey from Brighton to London. �.�..

The elopement-and sudden marriage of the couple last -October furnished musical circles with a surprife. "It Is true that my husband and myself have decided that out marriage was a mistake," said Miss Swartz today, "but we are still good' friends." Miss Swartz, it will be remembered, appeared in Lethbridge some time ago with Alice Neilsen,. the operatic soprano. * * � To "Understand" Music Before .on-e "understand" music he should have - a complete knowledge of -musical form, melodic; an'd harmonic; writes W.

Of course it-is quite unnecessary that mere listeners to music should know all these things, but they should at least know when they are hearing an overture and when they are enjoying a sonata or a suite. And it would- assuredly be good if their ears were; sufficiently enable them to know when singers are singing. out;, of tune, for it is regrettable that so much false intonation is received with applau?e.
