Latter, oJ Picture Butte is in the citv looking for his yife, .who left home last Ueecn-'hcr and is i supposed to be living in Lethbridgc. i Mr. Larter is a homesteader and was Pollards Win Further Success-"The Toymaker" Well Presented Unfortunately the inclemency of the weather kept down the attendance at the llajestlc Theatre last night, when the PoHnrd Juvenile Opera Co. gave a really creditable performance of that light opera success "The Toymaker,"' ndnpted from "La Poupce." One has no hesitation whatever in saying that the production on this occasion totally eclipsed that of the previous evening, when the juvenilis presented "Serg^. Drue." In "The Toymaker" the company had a much better chance of exploiting its ability, and it was indeed refreshing to note the vivacious manner in which chorus and principals carried out !tho work allotted to Ihom. The music of the piece is infinitely superior to that hashed up in "Sexgt. Bnie." Nellie McNamara, in the role of Father Maxine, revealed an attractive and lovely mezzo-con tralto voice in the various, song numbers and further impressed one with her ability as a clever young artist of much promise. Patsie Hill played the novice very successfully, while Eva 1 Pollard distinguished herself in a clev er presentation of "The Doll," her various movements being deftly executed ban has secured the services of M'rs. Eniiiy Grey, famous hari)iBt from Covent Garden, Lioudon, EIng., and Miss Sibley Remus, violinist virtuoso, Paris Opera Comlfiue, and a special grand opera orchestra, under the hsaton of William Glover, England's famous director. One of the things that lias*proven a reat factor in the success of the Sheehan English opera company is the fact that e'vpry note is sung, and every word that is spoken, is in Kngiish, enabling the audience to understand the plot and story, as well as the beautiful music. As the deninud for seaits has been phonomonal those who have not yot Eeciired same are urged to do so at onco to avoid disappointment.    A Cold MfavA i� Due Soon A temperature of. thirty degrees below zero is pretty cold weather but even colder than that Is promised in this city soon. More than ten times 30 below will bo the temperature in the tank that contains liquid air which Professor Patty will use for experiments on Thursday, November 7th. Liquid air is one of the most paradoxical substances known-a llquiid looking and flowing like wator but absolutely dry, 312 degrees belo5v zero yet pTodupes heat 3500 above zero( and in almost the same space; it boiis on ice; steel melts in it, alcohol soi>.-.' fles in It, tin, iron and rubber nro made brittle, and quick silver is made hard as steel. These, .and many ot lo experiments be performed. Mr. Patty brings spocim^hs of the new mineral radium and apparaitus for demonstrating Its wonder^. - .aeo, it wireless telegraph outiit and will glva a demonstration of these three' subjects. It Is very seldom that an attraction comes here endorsed hui^ sn emphaitically as is this novel and in-Btruotive trio of wonders, * �  Feature Week At Starland Unquestionably, this is feature week at Starland, for an abundance of great attractions are blng shown la every program.
