The celebrated psychic marvel plays Raleigh tomorrow and Tuesday, after losing three days of complete capacity In Newport News, and wa's booked to go to Richmond following Itaieign, underlined to go "from the Virginia capital Into Washington and Baltimore and then north again. Owing to a confu sion In booking arrangements out of the Klaw and Ertanger office iti New York, the Great Blackstone had to shift his time. Manager Cheek believes that ne Is fortunate in securing suh a drawing card for Greensboro theatergoers and is looking forward to six capacity audiences. The wizard's wonderful record for drawing full houses and turning people away disappointed Is said to be unprecedented because of Its consistent repetition wherivor he appears. The advance guard of the Great Blackstone's company will reach the city Tuesday from Italeigh to pave the Way for the arrival early Now Year s day of the wonder worker and his large company of men and women assistants. For the first time In Greensboro playgoers will sea the man who ha? baffled scientists and philosophers with the cleverest pair of hands in the world.

Fay and Mrs. Eva Fay, he outdoes the Uluslonary skill of Kellar and gets more entertainment, and laughs out of his escape from publicly applied restraints than either the great Houdlni or the elusive Hardoen. Lie enhances the attractiveness of his colossal production with a number of phenomenal feats that are distinctly Btackstonesque, wholly his own creations and Invention.

The Seaboard service is charged with the absence from Wilmington of Hamlet and Rockingham business men and people up and down the S. A. L., and better service is wanted. Committees have been named to go after these various trains and fight for them until they are won. The whole section is delighted with the four A. C. L. trains recently put on.

Clayton, for more than a dozen years assistant collector of customs, has resigned to go to New York and become head of the Import department of the Standard Commercial Tobacco company. His training in the customs service will stand him in good stead in his new work.

Morrell of Winston-Salem, who brings with him Mr. High-smith, who will also take position in the customs office here.

"To be sure the motorist appreciates beautiful body lines but his decision does not begin and end there. 'How many miles to the gallon' the buyer asks. This gives an excellent opportunity to explain why Lexington cars use lees gasoline on account of the Moore Multiple Exhaust System. How this system clears the cylinders of all dead gas and leaves an open track for the Incoming charge and why this gives more power and means a decided fuel saving. "We may explain how the frame of the Lexington has been lightened, and 125 parts eliminated, which prevents rattle.
