MUSIC AND DRAMA (Conducted by FIDELIO) Starland has secured this famous two-reel production for Wednesday and Thursday and the public should grasp the opportunity of seeing this great masterpiece. It is the greatest Scotch production ever attempted and was photographed among the green hills of Scotland. The synopsis of the story is as follows: "Among the green hills of Scotland dwelt two farm la(is named "Tammas" and "Geordie" who both loved a sweet Scotch lass named Jennie. She re-luses Geordie and accepts Tammas. On the happy wedding day Geordie is not invited, - and from his home he sees the happy couple enter their new home while reflectively he stands gazing from the window with his dog ".Jean" (who plays a principal part in the picture). Pensive and sad he fills his cup with a large draught of "Scotch Consolation", lifts it high ami says, "I'll Tak a Cup O' Kindness Vet For the Days of Old Lang Syne." Five years have elapsed since the last scene, but .still the old cm-11 jty between Tammas and Geordie exists, and in the meantime a child has been bom to Tammas and .Jennie, who is now four years old. The child wanders oil in the Heather across the Hills and is lost. Tammas and his wife start oil' in search of the little one, but their efforts'arc in vain and they return disconsolate to' their home. Geordie starts out at daybreak with his herd of sheep and his good dog ".lean" comes to him with the child's "Tam-O-ShaiUer", and persists in persuading her muster to go with her to the place where she discovered the child. Geordie rescues the child and takes him back to the distracted parents, which act makes Tammas relent in his enmity and the two men.shako hands and oner more become friends and "Drink A Cup 0' Kindness" making Mip their differences- with the world-famed words of "Atild Lang Sync." This is a great production and is a true portrayal of Scotch life. It is full of truth and spntitiient, and the scenery is magnificent. 1 We carry the only full apd complete stock ofVictrolas and Victors in the city, together with 3000 records Visit our Victor Parlors to-day JBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBaBSBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBNBi - .
