and $95,000, respectively. Elkhorn and
Iowa evaporated milk is made in
these two plants. The company will
manufacture and sell Elkhorn Brand
milk products exclusively.
The new building is to be of con
crete, steel and glass. It will be a
strictly daylight creamery in all re
spects. The capacity of the new plant is to
be 20.000 pounds of butter daily.

THE WONDER SHOW OF THE UNIYERSE
Thurston - At Soyd's
Dating from the Chaldean seers and
the Hindu mystics, the ancient art of
magic has its highest modern ex
pression in the skill of Thurston, the
magician, who opens a four-day en
gagement at Boyd's, starting this
evening. Matinees will be Tuesday
and Wednesday. On account of the
large amount of paraphernalia carried
by Thurston this season, it is neces
sary to omit the regular Sunday mati
nee in order to start his performance
at 8:15 this evening. It is said his
tricks this year are of the highest and
most ingenious variety, and are in
the highest degree satisfying. Hand
some new stage settings have been
provided and they add to the high
standard of the performance.
In the last few years of its exist
ence the New York Winter Garden
has become justly celebrated as an
institution where the last word in
monster spectacular extravaganzas
are turned out for the public's amuse
ment. Xn the theatrical world it has
become a staple institution for which
theatergoers are constantly alert.
Neither, time, money or labor is
spared in making a big Winter Gar
den spectacle the last word in huge
ness, melody and beauty. The latest
and possibly the greatest extrava
ganza sent on tour, "A World of
Pleasure, will be seen at the Boyd
theater for three nights, beginning
next Thursday, matinee on Saturday.
Numbered among the galaxy of stars
we find William Norris, dear, of
American musical comedians; Conroy
and La Maire, those grotesque but
entertaining black-face comedians;
the Courtney sisters, two ot the
stages cleverest women; Wanda
Lyon, a young lady possessing both
beauty and vocal ability; McMahon,
Diamond and Chaplow, ex-vaudevil-lians;
Franklin Batie, all-round en
tertainer; Collins and Hart, burlesque
artists; Margaret Edward, "the per
fect girl," whose classical dancing has
proven the wonder of all who have
seen her, and little Rosie Quinn,
whose charms are indescribable. But
the principals of this great company
of over 100 people are not alt that it
has to otter in its bid tor patronage.
The rosebud garden of Broadway has
been gleaned in the selection ot the
choice buds of the chorus with which
the directors of the Winter Garden
have surrounded their stars. And
there is also the usual lavish expendi
ture of scenery and costumes.
Maud Allan, the great symphonic
dancer, and the Maud Allan Sym
phony orchestra, under the direction
of Ernest Bloch, the eminent Swiss
conductor-composer, will appear at
the Boyd, theater on Thanksgiving
day, matinee and night.
The story of "IOld Kentucky,"
which comes at the Brandeis theater
for two performances today, matinee
and evening, concerns the fortunes of
an interesting group of people rep
resentative of the mountain and blue
grass regions of Kentucky. The plot
is unconventional, with a succession
of natural and logical incidents ex-
citine. even sensational forming in
their entirety a story of unflagging
interest.
Everybody who knows anything
about light opera or musical comedy
knows about Fay Tcmpleton, one of
America's supreme favorites, who
comes to the Orpheum this week as
the stellar attraction. It is to be said
of her, besides, that she richly de
serves the high place she occupies as
a leading comedienne. For three
years 'she was associated with Weber
and Field's All-Star company, which
included such celebrities as Lillian
Russell, William Collier, De Wolf
Hopper and David Warfield. At the
Orpheum Miss Tcmpleton will pre
sent a repertoire of song sketches
Written by Junie McCree. "Dollars
and Sense," written by the author-
actor, Alan Brooks, and presented b
him, will be a featured act of the bil
His leading woman is Peggy Cou
dray. Deiro, master of the "piano
accordion," is to offer a diversified
program. Facial expression is one
of the chief assets of Al Shayne,
formerly of the team, Shayne and
Matthews. The Eminent baritone,
Robert Dore; with the piano virtuoso,
George Halperin, is to be a feature
of thelbill this week. Little wooden
figures made to behave like men and
women by the use of strings, wires
and hinges, will be seen in the "Min
iature Review." B. Michael Martin
and Edith Fabbrini are reckoned
among the best dancers of the stage.
Their skit, called "A Flight of
Fancy," includes several oddities in
addition to their modern dances.
French boy scouts in the foothills of
the Alps will be shown in motion pic
tures by the Orpheum Travel
Weekly. River life in Indo-China
and glimpses of Java will also be pic
turesquely illustrated.
For the week of November 19 the
Orpheum announces a bill that will
embrace Bert Kalmer and Jessie
Brown in "Nursery Land," a scenic
production in which are introduced
well known characters from the
Mother Goose story book; Odiva,
