This Scotchman sent in his card to first three days of the week, do not draw less than $750 between them. The company assemble in Chicago, and wtJrk by various stages the whole of the circuit, which comprises over one hundred cities. It has been expressed that the prices charged here are higher than the cities in the States; but It must be borne in mind that these attractions show on Sunday over 'the other side; whereas here, owing to the Dominion laws, they can only show six days, which makes a great dif-ference to the receipts. Mr. Cameron, the advance agent ot Mr. Pantage, fully expects this place to hold its own with the rest of the 'western cities, and feels sure that after Monday's performan-ce, everyone will go away fully satisfied.

Strauis and the Anglo-Saxon Critics The following anecdote of Richard Strauss at a Munich rehearsal is going the rounds of the German papers. An orchestra! work was being rehearsed-very beautiful but very bizarre. In the middle of it the composer rapped his desk impatiently and called to the double bassoon : 'fWhy don't you play the F sharp that is marked ?" The bassoon, a headstrong sprt of fellow, -answered : ."Because it would sound, wrong, that is why;!)" Strauss gave a harsh laugh, and shouted: "What! are you'an English or an American critic in disguise ?" -   ���  "The Girl from Toklo" Those that enjoy a good clean bright farce, have a treat in store for them nex't week at the Majestic Theatre. �Manager Wi}Bon aliyays catering to the wants of hia patrons, 'has'' secured a splendid attraction in "The Girl From Toklo" which la an -adaption from the German for the American stage by Frank Tannohlll, jr., and George W. iBarnum.

Pantage.'s Vaudeville oh Monday at ' the Morris Pantage's is coming to Lethbrldge! Since the announcement in these columns that' the Pantage's vaudeville, was coming to this city, the opening remarks ot this paragraph have frequently been heard on the streets this, last two days. It may not Appear a thing of great importance to the casual peader of these lines, but when one comes tq consider the vast amount, of money that will .be needed to succcisatully finance� the different turns, it means a'great deal to tliqse responsl'bl'e for this new'' form ""of amusement. . : The Lethbrldge public have, in. the past, fully 'demonstrated that they will patronize any show that has the: stamp of merit on It. Therei has been various so-called-vaudeville shows In this town before* and a big percentage of them -have turned out a big frost; but the name of, Pantage is sufficient to-'warrahtf all turns to be of the best. : It might possibly surprise a good, many to- learn the various, amounts ai money which the various a^tlBtp .dmw and It.can be stated, on good author-'i Ity, that thoB.e who will visit ierc th^ ' 9.00, and the managemient will reserve seats, and-,'wlll hold them until the beginning of the second performance, after- Which time, should they not be called for, they will be sold. A question has been raised as to whether the hous� will be cleared after the, end of the first show, and the management wish It to be understood thatall will be pem'itted to retalii their b�its, and so witness thc whole of the turns. Reservations can now be made by 'phoning 1156. So book your seats early.   .   At the isijou The large audience ' present last evening were well repaid by the excellence of the program presented and were:loud In .tJielr appreciation of the music furnished by the Prlesz augmented orchestpa that captivates the audiehee from the rise of the curtain, and Is an education as to .the sacred-hiess of an Indian's honor. The comedies are rich in iiumor and are of ?uch a character that one has dlffl-^ culty in returning the countenance; to Its normal co.nditlon. . ' tpT Monday and Tuesday'a very bapaijle program has been arranged. Special mention must bc made .of "The Flirt or Heroine," an army story wherein one of th-e weaker sex displays that excellent trait found In all good women, devotedness. It is a story tha;t appeals and is guaranteed to be enjoyed by every1)ody. "Grandfather" is another subject that is simply and prettily told with just -that tinge of sentiment that stir� the better feeling. Of course the program would not be complete without -the flamoiis. "Pathe's , 'Weekly,'^ '� eagerly looked .for by all photoplay fans, and with a sparkling comedy the performances is worthy of high .patronage. The music furnished by the augmented orchesitra of -five- pieces under the capa.ble leadership of E. M.' Prlesz gives a tone to the entertainment and is'by, far the best In'the city. * * '�'/�..�.

This is being featured as the special week-end offering at Stariand, and is well worthy of first place.on any programme. It met with well merited, aind overwhelming applause last evening from the large audiences which were in evidence at each sho^v. � Other meritorious subjects on the same bill are two of the imenaely popular Mabel Normand "Keystone" comedies, "Just Brown's Luck," and "The Elite Ball." The lovable little Mabel, is a, firm favorite with all photo-play fans, for she is possibly the cutest and most entertaining comedienne at present appearing-In motion pictures. The balance of the picture end of the picture programme Is admirably sustained by the "Gaumont Weekly Gazette," the popular animated n^ws-paiper. Miss Amy Lawrance completes the bill, with her pleasing reii-dltlon of "I'll sit right on the moon," ably assisted by the Stariand concert orchestra. Two noteworthy attractions coming to Stariand soon arc "The Massacre," a stupendous two-reel feature, and Miss. Ivoulse Elllotte, Starland's newest entertainer, "In Her Brother's Clothes."
