What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

When McDonald Birch waves his magic wand strange things begin to happen. Mr. Birch is the 'youngest professional magician on the stage and through his natural artistic talent and ability has elevated his exhibition to the level of real art. He is a mind reader, too, and has bewildering surprises for people of every age and taste. A vein of genuine humor runs through Mr. Birch’s program. He is a born humorist and keeps up a running chatter of witty sayings, stories- and personal remarks to the audience that is infectious. Special scenery and stage equipment are carried for “Artistic Magic.” It will be a clean, clever exhibition of the very latest in everything magical and mysterious.

He is shown the mthods of detecting fires and reporting them, and how to discover them and put them out. The most satisfactory way to do this im­ portant. work is covred right on the ground, and when the course is com­ pleted every man will know exactly what his job is in the organization and the best way to handle it.

Senator Robinson was the next to be; placed in nomination by C. P. Brough, former governor of Arkansas, and McAdoo was next, his name being of­ fered by former Senator James D, Phelan of California. William G. McAdoo was placed in nomination for ahe presidency at the democratic national convention Wed­ nesday by former Senator James D. Phelan of California, with the decla­ ration that he is the “natural leader of progressive tought and achieve- ,ment.” “This yeur demands the return of triumphant democracy,” said Mr. Phelan. The progressives of the na­ tion look to the democratic party for their leader. Sbalil we give him to them? There is room in America for but one reactionary party, ^ and the republicans have pre-empted 1hat field.

During 1||23 nearly a billion cedar logs were cut in the forests of Washington and British Columbia and used in the manufacture of shingles. Orders for several more record-breaking train- loads of shingles already are being filled in the western mills.

These musicians will come to Chautauqua on the fiPh day with programs that range from Dolly Stewart’s dainty “songs at the piano” to the instrumental master­ pieces played on Edwyn Hames’ violin and the most stirring vocal clas­ sics sung by Alan Murray. As a baritone Mr. Murray bas made a distinctive mark in the musi­ cal world and it will be a privilege to hear this young vocalist whom the Sydney Bulletin predicts “will soar to the giddy heights of fame.” There is equally enthusiastic comment on the violin playing of Mr. Hames, while Dolly Stewart—in a class all to herself—is a popular idol with entertainment lovers.

This was another day of tumult and fervor, interspersed with oratory. Only three nominations had been made when yesterday’s adjournment ended the one hour demonstration staged on behalf of William McAdoo. and about 17 remained on the sce’.i- ule, including that of his leading ri­ val, Govrnor Alfred E. Smith. Governor Alfred E. Smith of New York was loimaiiy placed before the convention in nomination for the presidency of the United States. In course of the presentation of his name, Franklin D. Roosevelt, himself nominated for the vice-presidency fbur years ago at the San Francisco convention and now serving as cam­ paign manager for Smith, said the New York governor “is the most dan­ gerous adversary that the republican party ever had to fear and his name spells victory.” After a comprehensive recital of Governor Smith’s record in public of­ fice, picturing him as the warrior, invincible in defense of right and ir attack on wrong.” Mr. Roosevela said the -democracy of America “willi stand without fear and without hesi­ tation loyally behind Mr. Smith as the nominee of the convention.” The trees from which the shingles are made gi-ow to an enormous size, often measuring from eight to ten feet in diameter.

In the person of little Mickey Ben­ nett, seven and slightly freckled, the screen has a new child wonder. We leave the picture public to make its own decision in this matter after viewing \Big Brother,” an Al­ lan Dwan production of the Rex IVacli story, coming to the Royal Theatre for a two day’s run on Sun­ day next. Mickie. not only is the leader of a gang in this picture but he is fast becoming the leader of juvenile screen -players. Ever since he es­ sayed to be young Thomas Meighan in “Cappy Ricks,” two and a half years ago l.e has been in great de­ mand in kid parts. The good luck star that follows Meighan whom he emulated in his camera debut has been shining ever since on Mickey. In the short space of time that he baa been on the screen he hes played in more pictures than many of the rec­ ognized lum inaries of the screen. Not long after he fell out of a tub into a lake near Boston for scenes in \Cappy Ricks” he played in “Marriage and Morals,” with Tim Moore, whom he is now playing with in “Big Broth­ er.\ Mickey also appeared in “The Empty Cradle.” Second Youth,” “The Man Who Played God,” “Reported Missing,” “The Last Moment,” and ‘Mighty Like A Rose.” DOROTHY GISH, VIVID DANCER IN \BRIGHT SHAWL” Dorothy Gish i« doing a Suaniph (lanc^ at the Roycl Theatre this wpcl; in the Richard Rarfliplmess piefuro “The Bris-ht Shawl.” that is one of flip most delightful features nf th>« fascinating romance of the days of Spanish domination of Cuba.

Outstanding among the communi­ ties which have poisoned for hoppers successfully this year is the Porter bench. The assistant state entomol­ ogist was in that territory last Fri­ day and was very well pleased with the work that has been done. A sur­ vey was made of a few farmers on the Porter bench in order to estimate what th cost of poisoning had been this year and in no case was the cost of poisoning as piucli as lift> cents per acre. Bret Read, Joe Rx>se, H. J. Moon, W. J. Earls, Garnett Mc­ Donald saated that they were not afraid of grasshoppers when they had as effective a poison as the bran mash Tn some instances farmers had grasshoppers piled up an inch high in the barrowpit of the road ad­ joining their places. COMMUNITY PICNICS Several community picnics will be front Rpokaue and reports and from personal observa­ tion an optimistic outlook for Mon­ tana is justified. F. J.
