2 shows, 20 min. in 1. The principal picture this week is a colored film, about 14 minutes in duration, entitled “The Pioneer”, supposed to illustrate the trials and tribulations of the early settlers of this country. It is not nearly so good as Kit Carson, in interest, but is splendidly colored.
HR 3. Good selection of views this week, the feature of which is a long film descriptive of an eviction, showing the troubles and sorrows of a street waif. This film I missed myself but I am assured by Mr. Rogers that it is a very attractive one. 18 minutes in one.
3 shows, 20 min. in 1. We had a return of “The Escaped Lunatic” picture today, together, together with two new ones, the entire program giving evident satisfaction.
They gave us a very good selection of views this week, the principal feature of which was a representation of a fight between the Russians and the Japanese, which while although naturally a “fake” picture was quite effective and seemed to be appreciated thoroughly. 18 minutes in one.
“Life Savers at Work”. This is 14 min. Film full of life deeply interesting, and holds the undivided attention of audience.
A water tank railroad station in the “wild and woolly” is shown with the cow punchers assembled to give the expected agent a warm reception. The agent turns out to be a woman. All the hands turn their attention from hazing to love making for good comedy purpose. A tenderfoot, as evidenced by Eastern clothes, is the lucky suitor. He bests the “bad man” in a fight, but later both tenderfoot and woman are overcome by the desperado on robbery bent. The tenderfoot is tied to the railroad track, while the woman is bound hand and foot to the table within the telegraph office. She escapes in time to effect her lover’s release and the two embrace as the expresses rushes past.
the locale seems to be really the Western plains.
