B. Gaskell's Orchestra In Attendance lllsjotrated Song by Frank E. Evans "Take Me Back to Home Sweet Home" PRICES 10c and 15c NEW USE FOR PARCEL POST Spokane, Wash., Jan. 38.-Banking by parcel post is the latest departure brought about by Uncle Sam's entrance into the express field. One Spokane bank has received by parcel post a score of small savings banks, each containing money for deposit. LocaJ, hankers say the new system is destined to prove an important adjunct of tho savings department, as t.'ie parcel post provides an expeditions method of sending deposits. Dr. McKelvey';, for thirty years a practitioner at Brussels, is dead. such a number. This hiss'ng business is hecoming altogether too common nowadays. At this concert the collection amounted to something like $34, of which the band got $16', which may safely be taken as an indica'jon that the audience on the whole with one or two exceptions, was a decidedly "cheap one." A large number of those persons who go to these concerts have as a general rule no intention of contributing to the collection plate, which is placed at the door. Oh dear no ! It is on'y too plain that tlrss disturrcrs of the peace are invariably bent on having what they call "a good time." They �wfc like hoodlums and allow their temperament to get the better of them and think it is smart to hiss, whistle and throw stuff around hoi s self. It is up to the citiens ot Lethbridge to encotiraee the hand in trouble. The play is in the hands of a capable company of people, who preserve the dignity of the story throughout. The central figure, Father Kelly, ia portrayed by Frank Ireson, who, it must be admitted, handles the part with unusual skill. Mr. Ireson's voice and general appearance otherwise fitted into the role of the old priest like a glove. The husband and wi''1 were ac- a substantial manner. The boys' and ceptably played respectively by .Tas. Mr. Cline deserve recognition. M JT t. "The Rosary"-A Play Worth Seeing The stage of today is very much better off for such plays "as "The Rosary," which was produced at the Majestic Theatre last night before a fairly large audience. The story is an interesting one, and deals in the main with the lives of one Bruce Wilton and his wife, Vera, into whose home there has crept a worker of evil.v Briefly, Father Kelly, a priest and former, tutor of Bruce Quietly sets about getting at the root of the trouble. Calamity descends upon the Wilton household, and the husband's fortune is swept away in Buoh a bolus. Such conduct is a downright manner which causes the husband to insult to good citizenship, and for my own part I would feel disposed to advise the band to .discontinue,the concerts until some assurance is given that decency and law and order suspect his wife as the cause of his ruin. The good offices of the venerable priest, however, step in and with resolute skill the pious father perseveres in his wor, and finally Bysel and Mary Emos, while the comedy element was in the excellent bands of Harry Alyun (Skeeters), a clever comedian, and Helen E. Ross (Lesura), whose failure to see a joke provoked intense amusement. Mason Wellington took the part of the villain with fidelity, while the remaining characters were satisfactorily played. The play is well worth seeing, if only for the sake of hearing the story which, although preachy, leaves one inclining decidedly in its favor. The scenic effects were above the average. It is to be hoped that "The Rosary" will draw a large attendance this evening.  * � Monday at Starlancl Monday night at Starland promises in this city, for the special anniversary, and opening of the "new" Star-land theatre. The theatre is now elaborately decorated and renovated, and patrons will doubtless appreciate the efforts which have been made to make it the premier theatre in the city. The programme on Monday will be splendid in every detail. A new feature will be the initial appearance of Miss Amy Lawrence, Starland's newest acquisition. Miss Lawrence possesses a magnificent soprano voice of good range, and is making a tour of the theatres contained in the Starland circuit. The leading film feature will be an-other of the immensely popular Kay-Bee features, "The Great Sacrifice," a production which will hold one spellbound from start to finish. The story stands forth clear as a cameo, and will furnish endless sensations with its vivid realism. The balance of the programme will contain numerous other fine attractions, including another of the great Keystone comedies. � * * * May Form Operatic Society I would urge strongly upon everyone interested in musical affairs to attend a meeting which will be held in the Conservatory' of Mus'.c next MAJESTIC THEATRE TO-NIGHT_ ED.

The. discussing the formation of an oper-  ._ atic and dramatic society. Already ,, ' . - several local gentlemen have signi- fied their intention of te!ng present. One thing is very pla;n and that is the necessity of having a strong bond of harmony existing among thoss who may wish to aid in the protect. The formation of such an organization would help the cause of music in Lethbridge. New Song by Donizetti Discovered A nephew of Donizetti has discovered among the composer's papers an unpublished "Song of the Heart," according to a cable dispatch from Her. gamo, Italy. The words and music are by Doniaetti and they are described as the most inspired and saddest of all his works. A Hymn for the Bull Moosers That th,e Progressive party has already exerted an influence over contemporary art is shown by the appearance of "The Hymn of Armageddon," published asva feature in the January issue of Progress, a monthly review edited by George Howe. The hymn is the work of George Sylvester Vlereck, set to'music by Arthur Par-well, who has given it a rousing melody based on Indian lines. This he is especially fitted to do, having worked in the field for many years. The melody is a simple one, direct and forceful, and should become popular, as. it will be a splendid song to lead the Bull Moosers In the 1916 campaign, * �"*.* Coleridge-Taylor Of the two children of the late Salnuel Coleridge-Taylor, the Anglo-African composer, much is expected in the way of musical achievements. The boy, Hiawatha, has 'written a Hiawatha ballet, which has been favorably commented on, He began to study violin and the theory of music at the age of four. Gwendolen, the daughter, sings many of her father's songs, reads well-at sight and has a good musical memory. The composer wished both liir children to receive their musical education at the Guildhall School of Music under the guidance of his friend, Landon Ranald. Recipe for a Meyerbeer Opera T&ke a good chorus sung over the footlights, a trio ,wlth an; incisive rhythm, a spectacular march, a ballet with a tavern tune and one love duo with some high tonal flights; mix well with thin recitative and rich scenic sauce and sprinkle with feminine lingerie around the .edges. Put on the stage hot and let it steam for five acts. When sufficiently cooled place in the cellar and put on a new one. That is the Meyerbeerian nK'.';od. , . A Good Reason A well-known dramatic critic was leaving the theatre after the third act of a'new play.. The manager, seeing him, exclaimed: "Why, Mr.X., there is another act coming," "T�s," retorted the critic, "that's why 1 am goi�g."--New York Even-' ipg Post. * * * . . The Artist and His Morals "People's morals' don't interest me,' said Gevaldine Farrar recently in an interview with a New York Telegraph representative. "Yet mnny in this country go to theatres to watch a woman portray faithfully every shade of passion, its power and hold, want her to grasp philosophically all sit- uations, delineate care-fully ev�ry phase that brings about anxiety, heartache, surrender, pain, and. these sanie people, the audience, expect the actress' life to be free from experiences. They even ^deny her temptation. She must, I suppose, get her lessons from a dramatic school and not from life. That superstition and lack of courage account possibly for the many 'nice' actresses we have today and the few who are really feTeat. We ought to judge artists and discuss them only by the work-they give us. How they were shaped or (molded is no one's business." WHEAT CENTRE Wheat Centra, Jan. 16.-C. Dalton and P. Dalsman made a trip to the mines this week; The Dalton brothers are kept busy grinding feed these days, so many of the farmers around here ate giving into the hog and cattle business. Leon Collins made a business trip to Lethbridge the past week. The Literary at Grain Rid;;c last week was a success, a nice program �was rendered before the debate, the question was, "Resolved that woman, has done more to influence and civilize the human race than man," .and was decided in favor oi the affirmative. Jim Skeleton is nway to Champion this week on business. Mrs. Ellison's share in the pool -�aU.. It will now be run under the narue of Claussen & Quinn. Miss Ruth Rodney, of Shelby. Montana, is visiting, her friend here, 'vliss Irene McLean. Sleighing is good now and every farmer without a sleigh is sliding around some way, either on a board or on a rail. The mail leaves for Prospy and Windy Ridge on Wednesdays and Saturdays, hereafter, at 8 a.m. Mrs. Ed. Gosselin left last Wednesday for Lethbridge, . where she ] will visit friends for a few days.

We hope' he will be out and around soon. The Fisjier Mercantile Co., have moved their store ' across to the north side of the track and will soon have it fixed up again in. first class shape. Mr. J.

The idea prevails that several hundred energetic farmers settled on the land would do more to promote the development of Wain-wright and Central Alberta generally than the bison now occupying the., park. The herd was formerly owned by a Montana,.,who sold it to the government. It has in- , creased largely jn the last few yeai's and the animals are in excellent con- . .dition. F. TV Fisher, secretary 0l the . Edmonton Board of Trade and /the,, Central Development League, who has just returned from Waiuwrlght,' reports that the board of trade tlSejre. favors the plan of moving the- ancient roamers of the plains to an* other park.
