of Great Beauty and

The new theater building, just

Shlaes has appropriately christ
ened the new playhouse the "(iein
The interior of the building, as
well as the entrance, is a marvel
of beauty. Tin? walls and ceiling
have been decorated by the artistic
hand of Frank Oobelnian, and the
frescoing on the walls is indeed
biautiful. The panneling in the
vestibule and the wooden seats in
front have been painted by J. II.
Ilummerfield, and also exhibit
skill and beauty. The interior of
the theater is lighted by an in
direct lighting system, the fixtures
of which are oxidized brass hung
with chain fittings. There are
two (lower-shaped exit lights, one
on either side of the hall in the
rear. The vestibule will be bril
liantly lighted with cluster lights
and these will extend across the
arch in front, all installed by
Warga & Cecil.
On either side of the vestibule
will be a large mirror, 22x4 4
inches in size, so that, the ladies
can arrange their hats either on
entering or leaving the theater.
A number of electric fans will

Fine Boom Edition.
A few days since the Journal
received a copy of the boom edi
tion of the Clinton (111.) Daily
Journal. We have been receiving
this excellent paper regularly
every day, and without saying a
word of praise regarding the
special edition, we can say that
each issue of the Journal is a
1 mer for Clinton within itself.
The special edition, however, is
somewhat, of an exception in many
respects lo the general run of
boom editions, in that it was a
home production throughout, and
a general view of the business in
dustries of the wide-awake little
city of Clinton, which reflects
great credit, not only to Hen
Peltz, the editor and publisher,
but to the enterprising business
men, who are always alive to their
interests, which is very readily
denoted by the columns of the
Journal every day in the week.

There never was such a time in
the history of this country for
newspaper reading, and it is im
portant to read a paper of im
partial views one that is free
from any ofllce-scc king or olllce
hobling influences. The import
ant thing to a great newspaper
like the Lincidn Stale Journal is
to get trial reader's, as it has no
trouble holding them by its qual
ity. The cheapest way to gel new
readers is to make a special price,
which we now do only i for the
daily and Sunday paper until Jan
uary t, 1913 much less than the
regular price. At that lime the
paper will stop coming unless you
order it continued and pay in ad
vance for it. You really cannot

at such a price. Semi -S2 to the
