PAGE SIX THE WICHITA EAGLE, SUNDAY HORNING, HAY 31, 1914 r 1 THIS WEEK Remarkable Economies Here for You for Next Tvo Days, Monday and Tuesday T i . , .' rl r A -T T WT 'IS! V a-a WOXDEHLAND'S SEW SHOW. VaudeTtlle Program Change With Matinee Today. A vaudeville bill far superioT to the one offered the past week la engaged to appear at Wonderland park th!a afternoon at 2:80 o'clock. There will be; two separate show tonight, the first starting at 7:30 o'clock and the last at 9 o'clock. Among the big acta billed for the week Is Fred St. Onge and company, "the WoTld's Greatest Wheelmen." They have Jnet returned recently from a tour of continental Europe and Great Britain, Playing eight weeks at the Palace the-ater, London; five weeks at the Appolla, Vienna; four weeks at the Winter Garden, Berlin, and four weeks at the Orpheum, Budapest. Mr. St. Onge introduces the only lady cyclist in the world turning 20 Arabian omensaulta In 20 seconds while riding a bicycle. C. W. Rosey, a Wichita boy. is included in the act. The balance of the bill is made up of four clever and classy numbers. Seymour and Dupree are acrobatic dancers, "Emma Schilling is a elnglng comedienne, C. J. Marshall is a crayon artist and La Vail and Boudine are sensational aerialists. During the rest of the week shows will start at 8:30 o'clock and all are given free in the open-air pavilion. The merry shouts of the crowds as they whirl through space on the giant thriller and aeroplane glide can always be heard throughout the grounds, and the dancing pavilion, with an excellent orchestra, 13 proving exceedingly popular. The dancing pavilion will not be open tonight, but will be tomorrow night and every evening during the week. There is no doubt of the popularity of Wonderland's natatorium. The big pool always doe a good business and Is now open from 9 o'clock in the morning until 10 o'clock at night. The water is exceptionally alluring and there are plenty of new bathing suits. Several safety devices have been installed that have innovations that appeal to the swimmers. Arrangements for private bathing can be made at . i . . . . . i -mn j nme ny consulting Manager cuttle. There Is no admission at the gate to reach the natatorium In the daytime. A Lucky Strike. Two years ago T. P. Hayes, a plumber of this city, was Impressed with the Idea that he ought to buy a home instead of renting. Not having very much money to spare and hearing that The Hartford Western Land company of this city were selling homes on terms to suit the purchaser, he went to them and bought a six-room zottage on the corner of Fifteenth and North St. Francis. About a year ago, noticing that his trees were dying, he made some quiet investigation and found it was due to gas underneath the ground, which he discovered by boring a hole. In his business of boring underneath the pavements for water pipe, he has become quite expert In boring a seasonable distance. In boring the ground to ascertain his trouble, he found this gas, and not having any spare funds, he capped that hole and has kept the secret this past year. Lately he was more firmly Im pressed than ever that he had . better do something to develop it, on account of .so much discussion in the paper about finding oil and gas, that he has bored two other holes, 20 and 30 feet deep, all three of which being on the north side of his property. He 'has found gas in every one of them, one of which has been burning night and day for the last two -days. The other hole will burn only when air is blown into it. and will burn continuously as long as the air Is blown in it. Of course, it has to be started by a lighted match being thrown in It. The strange fact in connection with It is, the Hartford company when It built this house, put In a driven well about 4t or 50 feet away from this gas well, which was used for water for the house. The same company built most all of the cast front houses in the same block, and at each one a driven well was put in for household use, but the strangest fact in connection with the whole matter is that where this gas is, no water Is found. This Is a rplendld example of what a purchaser of small means can do even now. When the real estate men have been insisting this is the" time to buy, before high prices set In. Mr. Hayes is to be congratulated, as he is amply protected under his contract with the company and simply has to keep up his payments, and if gas is found in sufficient volume he will be worth a million dollars. Furthermore, It is of the utmost interest to every citizen in Wichita as we will all share to a certain extent In thebeneflts. Mr. Hayes has also agreed to go with Mr. Robertson, one of the managers of the Hartford company,' to a location on College Hill, where this company sold a house on similar terms, and where oil was discovered about a year ago. He has agreed to sink a pipe to the bottom of 'this well, which was bored tor water at that time, and draw up sample of the oil. This oil well has Leen capped and not developed for oil on account of the purchaser of the ontract not having sufficient means to develop it. This same company is also interested in and a stockholder in the new oil 'and gas company which is headed by Whitney Tucker of this city. Mr. Robertson is one of those who thproughly believes oil and gas Is near the city If we will develop the leads that nature has given. UOt'DLE FEVTIIIE rHOTO-rLAT BILL Crawford Theater Monday, Tuesday mad Wedaeaday. Lily Langtry, one of the foremost motional actresses of the day. Join the ranks of famous stars who hara appeared before the camera In the stellar role of "His Neighbor's Wife," produced by the Famous Players Film Company, and will be shown at the Crawford theater for three days, com mencing Monday. June let. with daily matinee. Mrs. Langtry's role will appeal to all womanhood, as It will Impress the male element of society. It takes a familiar problem of the day, marital deception, and treats It boldly, bluntly and directly. MHI Neighbor's Wife" Is as true as life itself, a play that la enacted every day in homes all ever t:e world, simple, direct and with an admirable moral. Mrs. Langtry has a highly sympathetic part, that of a faithful wife whose devotion, which nearly costs her life. Is rewarded In the. end by the redemption of her false husband, and she plays It with faith fulness and sincerity. With that regard for variety and 1HT O W ::SROPS 11 tUi .-"W.

Treasure Inland" to Be Sen In Play at Philharmony. Arrangements have been made whereby the special feature picture of, Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island" j will be seen at Philharmony audi-J torlum this week on Friday and Satur day, with a Saturday matinee. Steven-Bon'a wonderful adventure story Is known to every man, woman and child. The pictures to be seen Friday and Saturday will give a faithful portrayal of each and every important incident a related by Stevenson engaging the sailors, loading the treasure ship, troubles at sea, sighting the treasure Island, mutiny among the sailors, the battle for life and supremacy on the island. Perhaps no adventure story ever written equals Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island." Patrons of clean, good feature pictures will find the entertainment of Friday and Saturday at Philharmony one of the most enjoyable offered this season. , Other features arranged for the near; M- E.

' LAST WEEK AT PRINCESS Only Two More Vaudeville Dills to Be Seen Thin Season at Popular Theater. This Is the last week of the vaudeville season at the Princess theater. In place of the usual tabloid, five acts of vaudeville will be offered both the first and last half of the week. Head- Jng the bill for tomorrow's matinee is the Three Leightons, two members of which composed , "Steamboat Bill" and "Casey Jones." They are clever comedians, singers and dancers, and their sketch, ."The Party of the Second rart," Is novel and very amusing. All songs sung in their act are of their own composition. The Three Flying Kays offer an act with many new and distinct features. Aerial work of an amazing nature performed In perfect accord keeps the audience bewildered. One difficult feat after another is presented with great rapidity. "Kings of Mirth and Melody" is the tltl given Millard, Kennedy and Christie. They introduce a series of new songs and comedy stunts that have the ring of t originality. The Morretta sisters have pleased audiences with their singing and instrumental act that is reputed a great deal better than the usual cabaret feature. Roller skating with humorous falls and balancing Is what Beaman and Anderson offer. The bill for the last half of the week com- silR Glov Look at Silk through the eyes own experience AT ALL W U U , ... . M V mencing Thursday's matinee. Is to be topped by "Sorority Days," a. musical study in black and white by three girls and three men. ' ' Next week, Monday Is 'tfce opening for the moving picture season at the Princess. Nothing but feature pictures are to be presented and the program will be changed daily. An admission of 5 cents is to be charged. THE BISHOP'S CARRIAGE Crawford Haeater TkwraAay, Friday and Saturday. Mary Pickford will again be seen in J, motion pictures at the Crawford theater for three days, commencing Thursday. June 4th. "In the Bishop's Carriage", cannot be called a love story. There are two scenes in it, though, where the affection of the girl whose life has been such a rough one comes to the surface. The first where Nance, after her successful debut on the stage, is surprised in her room by the entrance of Dorgan as she Is contemplating the bouquet thrown to her by an admirer, will stir the heart. The escaped convict, demanding that Nance return to him, is In turn surprised by the entrance of Obermuller. Nance flies to him for protection. It is the awak ening of the good In a heart that, has been trained to eviL The second is ! where Obermuller and Nance on the water front, watch the departure of a trarp steamer bound for India, bearing on board Dorgan. Thrilling situations abound, situations legitimately thrilling, made so by the art of the author and the skill of the director and the fine acting of the players. Artist of High Rank Just at this time the big festivals of the country are holding the attention of the music world, and the fact that the most pretentious festivals are engaging the artists who have been selected to appear as soloists with the Wichita Symphony orchestra during they will have opportunity to hear six artists of the very first rank, if the orchestra is established in this city for the coming season. Springfield, Massachusetts, Syracuse, New York, Worchester, Massachusetts, Cleveland, Ohio, are among the greatest festival cities of this country and we note by the press in those cities that artists who have been announced to appear with the Wichita Symphony orchestra as soloists, have appeared as star at tractions at these festivals and have created much enthusiasm. Ralph Sapp, conductor of the Men-delsshon club of : Cleveland, writes: "Andrea Sarto sang wonderfully and we shall want him again." . o 1 Oklahoma State Institute of Tech- i nologry Commencement exercises at the slate's big school are in full progress. Many visitors are present and activity fills the air.
