There are many theatres built for this purpose, but in the great majority the comfort of the patron has been sacrificed to the desire of seat-ingsas many as may be crammed into the house, with the new Capitol it ia otherwiwe. The architect, J. M. Jeffray, A.R.I.B.A., with' the assistant architect O. Rider Morris, have built a theatre that will feature the comfort of the patrons first, last and all the time.

Systematic discomfort has been very clearly avoided in the new theatre, and the builders, The Paramount Victoria Theatres on behalf of the Famous Players Canadian Corporation, controlling the Capitol Theatres throughout Canada, have added yet another edifice to their chain that will reflect great credit on their foresight and efficient management. That the Capitol Theatre here is an asset to the city will not be doubted when once seen. It is a handsome structure, on the Italian Renaissance style, with an interior that lifts it from the average of motion picture houje, into what would correspond to th grand opera edifice on the- legitimate stag That the quality of the films to be displayed here is vouched for by the management of the Paramount Company, and the retention of John M. Robertson, who for eight years has made such a success of the Dominion Theatre across the street from the new edifice. Mr.

Under his banaer the finest motion- "pictures, including the famous Paramount, pictures, will be shown together with the best musio obtainable and entertainment by high-class artists. "Capitol Entertainment is in keeping with the up ward trend of the motion picture business," said Mr.

Nathanson. I have seen this new form of divertlse- ment coming for a long time, but our company was not in a position to present this standardized form of amusement to the public until most of our new theatres were complete. With large houses now in successful operation from coast to coast, it is possible, to strike out with what consider the finest lineup of attrac tions that has ever been offered to the Canadian public. "We mean to make Capitol Entertainment a guide post to the best, cleanest and most worthwhile amusement. We have cone to big ex pense to contract for the greatest photoplays on the market and many in course of production.

We are es tablishing our own studios in Toronto in which we will build our own special entertainment acts and re hearse our artists for prologues to the pictures and for special numbers. These acts will open In To- ronto or Montreal and will be sent Intact over the circuit. By this ar rangement the patrons of our west ern theatres will see the same big ahows as those who attend our houses in the east. Senor Otto Mo rando, widely known producer and instructor of music and dramatic art; Madame Morando and (John Arthur, director of music for all of our the atres, will have charge of the To- ronto 'studios. We already have booked a number of artists of world-wide popularity for appearance over the circuit.

Nothing will be omitted from our programme that we think will please our audience, but anything that savors of unfitness will have no place in Capitol Enter tainment," concluded Mr. Nathanson. 'I FRANK WILLIAMSON Of Sooke, Noted Lepidoptera Collector to 5 p.m. daily and 1 p.m. to p.m.

Two colored churches, the A.M.E., and the A.M.E, Zion come next, while Canadian comes fifth with 395,653 members.

The collection, while on exhibition, is in charge of Frank Kermode, curator of the museum. "There has never been anything like this collection in this country," said Mr. Kermode to-day.

Mr. Williamson is now living at Sooke. Scientists who have examined the collection declare that the examples of protective mimicry in Mr. Williamson's collection should be studied by all persons interested in the way nature goes about protecting forms of life. In the collection is the dead-fly butterfly from India, which folds up with the shape, size and color of a dead leaf.

Even the veins of the leaf are imitated. Other butterflys are shown fmitat- ing the brilliancy of the flowers among whit they live. Some of the striking specimens come from Thibet Mr. Williamson has been studying the lepidoptera of the world for years, specializing on the similarity of species and geographic range.
