As may be expected, tile tempestuous change in the weather on Saturday night reacted to the detriment of the picture audience. Still, the majority of tile re gular devotees were there. The Vitagraph comedies the local company are putting over are excep tionally funny, without in any way vcrg ing on rudeness. Saturday's offering was tp to the usual standard, and the traveloque, showing "Sunset and Moon rise" on the glaciers and tilhe Rockies, was sublime.

Mr Utber says the article by rights should have borne the caption -"Moonshine."'

These stones are practically on the spot and should not cost a very large sum to construct a gutter of a permanent nature, which would ioi" viate the necessary filling ind of soil after a heavy shower.
