The Irish roinedy drama " Shnun
A it in 11," was produced by local talent
at tin- Edison Theatre on Thursday
night, under tin* auspices nf tin1 ladies
of thr Roman Catholic church. The
play is familiar to Revelstoke theatre
goers, being put on a short while njjo
with success. There i> but little change
in the caste, the individual parts being well sustained, the actors bei/ig
runii<l.-nt in themselves and having
their puns prepared carefully. On
this occasion W. A. Sturdy was taking the role of Dun O'Grady, which
he made tin* most of. A new actress
made her debut before the public on
this occasion in tlie person of Miss
('. Kraser, who made a charming
Molly O'Grady. The production de-'
nerved a far larger house than was
accorded it, ami thf company as a
whole  show.Mi  considerable  talent.
Th-1 moving pictures illustrating the
incidents in the life of "Conn the
Shnughraun" the Irish hero, were extremely interesting.
The principal holiday attraction for
Victoria Day, Mav 24th, will lx> the
performance in the New Edison Theatre by ihe lam.ni- Musical Eckhordts
the Swiss family of bell ringers aud
musicians. I'he Eckhardts come here
not as a stranger hut as well-known
and proved musical entertainers of
more than ordinary ability. Their
programme lor Victoria Day will be
unique, varied, wonderful and above
all. high grade and pure in character
and intliiciiiv. Wherever they have
pfi'fornii'd they have received the high
est testimony oi praise, each member
being a star. 'I'ho musical versatility
of the troupe has been demonstrated
on a previous occasion before a Rev.
elstoke audience and their return visit
will Ik' still more pleasing and interesting. The New .Edison is particularly adapted    for     such  a  performai	
when instruments of all kinds are
played  the sound heinc can ied along
tha metal ceiling and losing nm I
lit- rich tone.    This entertainment will
I make a fitting end to a pleasant holiday next Tuesday, and all who vi-ii
the Teatrc ace assured ot a first-class
evening's amusement.

what i'> do in ease of explosion, as
well as how to prevent fires by keeping refuse burned and the danger <>f
permitting old papers to lie stacked

learned will remain with them always.
Mr. Johnson gave oui tlii-- statement
whii h applies to other states us well

"The Nebraska fire commission,
whose business ii \< to do everything
possible for the prevention * if fire

See Its "Artistic Arch"
Of all the 20 improvements of lhe clever-looking
Napoleon Shoe the feature which best pleases the
eye of the buyer is the Artistic Arch. Special lasts
are made for every pair of Napoleons—foot-sculptured
lasts—and inside there is a stout steel arch which
snugly holds the instep.
That free, athletic stride which marks
the man of action is not possible when the
arch support of the shoe fails in its function.
Showing the Napoleon Shoe is a
pleasure—whether you come to see or
to buy.
Sold everywhere in Canada, the
United States and Great Britain at the
same price—$5, $5.50 and $6.
