rival of the special train from this city,

moving up the street to the bank, and

WILL OPEN TO-
The New Majestic Theatre
Will Open Its Doors to
The past week workmen have been
engaged in renovating and arranging
the Leonard store room especially for
an electric theatre, and to say that this
room has been systematically arranged,
but half expresses it. The room proper
is nearly 100 feet in length, with box
office in front, and the entire building
has been repainted, repapered and
tastily decorated in a manner very
inviting to our amusement loving
people. Electric lights have been
8trung through the entire building so
as best to show off the effects. The
rear part where the pictures are shown
is different from any other show of its
character that has ever been opened in
Plattsmouth. The curtain is very large,
and is made in such shape as to display
pictures as true to life as they possibly
can be shown. Easy chairs have been
placed in the theatre for the accomoda
tion of all, and on either side of which
is aisle-way of three feet which makes
a very easy matter of getting in and
out. In the rear there is also two
exits, which makes it very convenient
in getting out at the rear, if , necessity
occurs. Taken as a whole, the manner
in which the proprietors, Messrs. N. L.
Anderson and Al Stear, have arranged
their theatre for the accomodation of
their patrons demonstrates to a dead
moral certainty that they are right up-to-date
in the business in which they
are engaged. The Journal people have
known Ned Anderson for several years,
and can say that those who patronize
this place of amusement, can expect
everything just as represented, and
that good order will prevail at all haz-
zards. Give these gentlemen a good
audience tomorrow night and you will
have the pleasure of seeing the best
moving picture show you ever saw in
Remember the Date June 30th.
If you are at all interested in college
life, you should not fail to see college
life as it is, and as it is portrayed by
Plattsmouth people in the "College
7idow," June 30th. This play has
been presented before all the large
cities of the country and its success has
been unlimited. See the development
of the country rube into a mollycoddle,
who smokes cigarettes, parts his hair
in the middle and plays a guitar. See
"Silent Murphy, "who is too big for his
clothes. Or Billy Bolton, who has been
a freshman for three years, just so that
he can play foot ball. All these go to
make up one of the most interesting
plays ever produced in Plattsmouth.
Now as this play is given for the bene
fit of the public library, everyone should
attend and help the good work along.
