Announces the Successful Coupon Holder on Saturday Evening at 10:15 p.m. GIGGLE AT Great Crowd Out to See Something Novel and Well Worth Seeing The opening of the Boys' Hobby Show at tfce. Y. MVC. A: last evening turned out;to be a7pronounced success from every viewpoint. It is au exhibition which in many respects would put in the shade that of more pretentious undertakings. From the moment the doors swung open until closing time the public kept circulating throughout the various side shows and inspecting the Work of the boys which, to say the least of it, is well worth seeing. exhibition is .somewhat of a revelation to. the. citizens of Lethbridge and the importance of it may perhaps be best grasped when it is kept in view that the boys' have spent many a profitable, evening preparing' their exhibits. The Y. jtf. C.A. have hit upon tho right idea in encouraging the boy in the hobby pursuit and for this In a large measure the boys' secretary, Karl Roberts is deserving of warm recognition. The whole show is unquestionably a glittering success and a distinct credit ts. promoters. Some Features On the main floor the exhibit which perhaps first fascinates the eye of the visitor ia. that shown by J. D. Hig-inbotham. In this display the outstanding feature is a shield made from the breast bone of an African savage-it 'really doesn't look hor-ritle. There is- also aniQng other cur., lbs a.Chinese; dragon flag; some Chinese silk embroidery work, an Indian pipe, and  numerous old guns including a Turkish pistol-an excellent showing of curios worth looking at. J. M. Mead, a local artist of. high at- tainments, has a gallery of some 24 pictures comprising sepias, water colors and pen and ink sketches. Some striking pictures are "Lord ,of the Glen," "Salmon Stream, Loch Katrine," and notably a fine water color "Protection." Several interesting Sussex scenes are also worthy of notice. One or two of the boys have very creditable small pictures, John Lister, Ted Hagell and'Young Farrow being much in evidence. On the second floor Jack Waddell and Ralph Wad-dington are on hand with their wireless apparatus. The instrument used by Waddington is one of simple form while the ..'Waddell boy has an exhibition* instrument. Both boys with their minds absorbed on ,the "wireless" subject kept sending messages to onc another the whole- evening without the Slightest -difficulty. One or two visitors also had the satisfactions having the boys send messages from one end of the room, to the other. Lethbridge is fortunate in having two such clever boys to deal with the wireless and who knows but that some day they will be able to improve in some way on the Marconi invention. If you wish to know anything about wireless just ask Waddell and Waddington. If you want to get rich quick try your hand at this on the main floor. You must have the nerve to snatch the silver, otherwise you lose. Major Burnett's interesting collection of bid guns, swords and fencing masks also won much admiration. A model of an elevated jib crane shown by R. Van Harlem, and also a design of a windmill by the same clever lad made;froin-Dutch and Canadian postage stamps attracted much attention. Another clever boy Kenneth Farrow, also has on view "a very artistic exhibit of plasticine work.

The Animal Show In the basement of the building will be found a real animal show comprising pigeons, rabbits, white rats, a Persian cat, parrots, dogs, a goat and a coyote. Swimming Sports The swimming pool was the scene of a series of water sports in the shape of tub races, egg races, diving, and staying under water. It was a free and easy exhibition and the boys showed some surprising speed in swimming from one end of the pool to the other. Entertainment Galore Titis way for (he big show! Who could resist visiting the charming Cleopatra or Mle. Cassandr-e in their fortune telling stunts. Anything about the past, present or future was told by these fairies, One spectator, a bachelor obviously, wanted to know who his future wife or wives would be but the fortune tellers only blushed and smiled. The bachelor didn't tumble and calmly passed along to sympathize with the fat lady who had just been having an interview with Secretary Irving on the question of votes for women. The genial' A. J. held out no hope to our fat friend, who merely winked the other eye.and turned her attention towards a slim young lady who, however; did not appear sympathetic. The giggle alley .in. charge of Joe Gillespie and Millard Robison proved a laughing success. If you omitted to take in the giggle alley you misBed-a good hearty laugh.. Harrison's laughing palace was also a strong drawing card and many were the sideaches ,as a result of visiting this show. McKillmurrayup's circus in the'gymnasium proved a howling success and the antics of the clowns kept everyone in a constant fever of merriment. In the bowling alley the African ball dodger had a hot time, but he was gathering in the coin and didn't mind. a little inconvenience in the shape of-ball dodging. ... Don't Miss the Show It goes without saying that thc attendance at the big-show tonight and tomorrow will 'be bigger and better than ever.: On all sides last evening could be heard the one comment, "simply "wonderful."' Everybody prais. ed in the highest terms the work "of the boys who are destined to have a prominent part in the future of Lethbridge. Seldom indeed does one have an opportunity of witnessing such clever work-all done by young boys. Praise for Y. M. C. A. That the Y.M.C.A. is doing a grand and useful work among the boys is conclusively proved in tho present show which it is to be hoped will be repeated annually in future for the sake of stimulating the interest of the boys in hobby' work. A. J. Irving, the popular secretary', was wearing the smile of satisfaction, while J. D. Higinbotham, Major Burnett, J. W. McNicol, Manager Dodman of the Hudson's Bay Co., and others were loud in their praises of the Bliow. List of.

T.t ig sickening to-have to live always in an atmosphere of l'ault-'mrfiiig.--I; claim the right to denounce the vicious play, and to hold up to public execration the dramatist and the actor who produces plays that disgrace them and degrade the people who pay-to see them. Claiming and exercising. that right. I am under the deeper obligation to pay my.tribute of admiration and gratitude to the really noble in dramatic art. The histrionic instinct is deep-rooted in our human'nature. It cannot be eradicated, and We would not eradicate it if we could. The atmosphere of a theatre may be abominable.; the effects of some plays may be demoralising; but the theatre itself has a proper place in our human life. This week the people of Liverpool have had the opportunity of enjoying each, evening a few hours at--.-, pure and perfect happiness. . It would..... not be possible to praise too highly, the exquisite beauty of Shakespeare's "Henry V." as presented by -Mr. Lewis Waller and his associates. Mr. Waller is a great man, and to see "Homy a V." -in the hands of men of ability aud character is a rev-elation of refinement, of povverj of culture."of profound truth, and of .large, charity. It; is perfectly- safe-- to,, say} that not one man in ten thousand is - capable �� of ; seeing, as he .reads "Henry. V." by his -own fireside," the splendor and the truth of it, as he does when be -^ees every spiritual reality -illuminated by Mr. Waller's.genius. We are careless-readers; "we live our lives in a hurry- Shakespeare's phrases need more thought than we are willing to bestow; and that glorious devoutn-es^.. that sublime religiousness of "Henry V." does not appeal to us until a man who has loved the character all his., life and'thought about It through all-the years of his manhood-a man of-' fine spirit, be it added, lays himself: �at. our service, and embodies for us .
