An advance notice issued by the management says:. One again the merrymaking "Mutt and Jiff" will be here. The season of laughter is about to begin. "Mutt and Jeff in Mexico" in a brand new dress epmel to the Prince theater, matinee sMlnigtt. Saturday. October' 3. with a arcer -and a better show than has ever appeared before under the well known title. Giving "Mutt and Jeff" a new and superior production each successive year is an act of diplomacy on the part ; Of Gus Hill. Bud Fisher's eccentric char- scter can live for a .century or they - uau die as dead as a "door nail" In 60 days, if allowed to do so, but it is decidedly to the interest of both Bud Fisher and Gus Hill to see them live for . ' years innumerable, which they will do Us long as Fisher is able to furnish "new dose" and up-to-the-minute comedy slt-qationb and as long as Uus Hill furnishes at new and acceptable vehicle for their stage work. Both of these gentlemen seem to be successfully keeping up their pece at the present writing. "Mutt and . Jeff in Mexico'1 will represent the "last word" in musical comedy production, everyxhing being new but the name. Tin . Airerican public never wanted to laugh more than they do at this time. They seek comedy even tn motion pictures. Gus Hill's mission since his entre into tbe theatrical producing game has been t make people laugh. He is the acknowledged dean of cartoon comedy j production, never having offered a play eg this sort that did not prove a success. ADVANCE NOTICES. r "The Red Widow" at the Prince.

Is represented at the Queen theater today by a new Selig two-reel feature, "The Going of the White Swan," which he has made from one of his stories. It is a dream of intense emotion, with the srene laid in the Canadian wilderness that region which Sir Gilbert kupws so well. In the cast are Bessie Eyton, Wheeler Oakman. Roy Clark. Frank Clark and Joe King. Miss Eyton and Mr. oakman have roles similar to those which have made their names familiar to motion picture fans the country over. John E. Brennan will be seen at the Queen today in a new Kalem comedy, "Jones' Wedding Day." While on his way to the minister's, where his bride is waiting. Jones is arrested for exceeding the speed limit. Despite his pleas he is placed In a cell when he discovers that, having left his money in his other clothes. ! he can not pay the 120 fine.

The mixup which ensues as the result of the similarity tn names between the bridegroom and the hobo will tickle the rislblea of every observer. A new Hearst-Sel I g Pictorial, with views from the war zone, including the entry of the German troops Into Brussels, will form the fourth reel of a very interesting program. Tomorrow the Queen will have John E. Ince in the new Lubln drama. "His Brother BUI"; George Stanley and Margaret Gibson In Vltagraph's "When the Gods Forgive," and Richard Travers and Ruth Storehouse in Easa nay's "White Lies." Sunday the fourteeiuh installment of "The Perils of Pauline Eclair Feature at the Isis Today. The Isis is drawing excellent attendance these days, firstly because of the superior work of Falrman and Furman. a most clever team of novelty and comedy slngejj; secondly, on account of the excellent films. The chief picture on today's bill is "The Aztec Treasure." a twot3rt Eclair drama, featuring Edna Payne and Robert Frazer. As a race the Aztecs were the most educated of the Indians found in America by such famous explorers as Cortex and Balboa. Undoubtedly climate conditio f had a great deal to do with their superiority as far as the other red races were concerned and their Isolated condition, protected as they were by the Sierra Mad res and Popocatepetl, enabled them to devote their energies toward agriculture rather than bellicose proceedings. Ancient works point out that the Aztec was better educated and superior to either Cherokee or Blackfoot, and the weapons which they made, such as arrows, spears and tomahawks, were all constructed out of baser metals rather than stone. The Aztec was particularly well based in the handling of gold and silver and the museums today are filled with Idols and ornaments which were made by them. Undoubtedly Balboa's conquest of the Panama region did more to promote expeditions coming to America than anything else on account of the vast amount of yellow metal which his crew brought back with them. After, however, the In vasion of the Spaniards the Aztecs, so that tnetr treasure would not be in dan ger, made provisions to bury It la keep it away rrom ma nanaa oi ine invaaers. The other film number Is "Jane's Lovers." wonderfully amusing Joker farce. With three suitors on her hands. Jane Is fat quandry, Willie pulls her out of the lake and thus carries away the prise. 'Spartacus." one of the most pretentious film productions of the times, will be offered by the Isis for three days, Sunday. Monday and Tuesday. The fea ture is enacted oy the same company wnicn was seen in the I'aaquali production of "Last Days of Pompeii." "Spartacus" is an eight-part feature. "The Dollar Mark" at Pearce'e- "The Dollar Mark." a five-part Brady feature showing today and tomorrow at the Ptarce theater. Is a companion piece to George Broadhurst's first great success. "The Man of the Hour," In which Mr. Warwick will appear at the Pearce within the next two weeks. Working opposite Mr. Warwick is Barbara Tenant, a screen artist well liked by all followers of the pictures. The story opens in Cobalt the scenes were taken there I and closes in the East Newport and ew rorK city, it is a picture of vigorous nction which rings true throughout, and every part of it holds the interest strongiy. The best part of the story Is the u -I ventures of the lovers in the floods. A terrible storm has driven the girl Into the hut of the miner. "Jim," owner of the Nellie Davis mine, a property worth millions and which the trust, of which Alice's father ia one of the guiding epuits, wants to get cheap. The dam above the hut breaks, the water washes down the valley and the hut goes with the rest of the primatlve buildings. Th 3 hut's heavy door serves Jim and Alice as a raft The stream washes them furiously along toward a terrible fall. The trust fails to force Jim to sell his mine. Alice comes to the office, where there is the usual happy ending. Opening of Crown Theater. The new Crown theater. 306 Main street, will open -its doors to. the public Saturday morning. P. C.

H. B. FALL PRESIDED AT MEETING. Mia H. B. Fall presided at the meet ing, which was held in the auditorium. The meeting was called for the banquet room, now occupied by the Progressive league, but It was quickly ascertained thai ihr waa not sufficient room there. and adjournment was had to the main building, where Manager aiorrisnoj uau prepared for the meeting. In bar mMtninr address. Mrs. Fall stated that there was to be no boycott, no unjust accusations, no endeavor to Kind the axe of anyone. The women of ouston and Texas face a problem and must solve It. They not only nave a nrnhlatn hut an onnortunltv to show that they are entitled to the name of home makers. They must avail themselves of this opportunity and demonstrate that they are worthy the confidence which is reposed In them. She had Issued the call rnr maatinn nf the same kind to be held all over the State and she had heard from several points that the meetings want tn h held. She was confident that the Women of Texas would acquit themselves tn a manner that Is creditable. It would require brains to do it ana tne women of Texas have the brains. Mra. J. Edward Hodges, temporary chairman of the local organization, explained the objects of the Housewives' leaguo. one insisted upon tne use oi frugallV as being the great point. She read the definition of frugality as It is given above and pointed out that it well covers the object of the organization which she has peat hopes will appeal to the women of Houston. WASTE IS ONE OF THE GREATEST SINS. Waste Is one of the greatest sins of commission inveighed against. Failure to oversee and to personally attend to the details of purchases for the household the great sins of omission. Mrs. Hodges was clear la her presentation of the mat ter tbat this is an offensive as well as a defensive organization. She declared for cleanliness, for purity tn food products and for full measure and legal weights. She pointed out some of the Instances . where the housewives are snined against by tbe merchant; but she also had something to say of, the sins of the housewives against the merchants. J. B. Lehmann made a brief 4alk upon the subject of ward markets and drew applause when he declared that the time for their establishment is now without further delay. He declared that expensive, buildings and elaborate fittings are not needed: that it is proper to get them under way upon a small scale and then to enlarge them as occasion demands. He painted a rather glowing picture of the good to be accompi'.snea by the ward market and trusted that the Progressive league will be able to make rapid orosr- ress in the matter. He declared that the farmers will not take word pictures. They wish to see the markets actually established and then they will grow the things that the housewives of Houston want. THE CITY SEALER PROMISED CO-OPERATION. Charles Lawrence, city sealer, went into many details of how the housewife may guard against Imposition. He promised active co-operation of his department with the women of Houston; said he was at all times ready to reweigh their purchases and to receive and investigate complaints that they might make that they had not received what they should. But he warned them that there was no case when they bought a bottle of vinegar if they did not call for a pint or a quart; or if they bought a package of anything without specifying the weight they wished. He warned them against the use of heavy bags and trays in the weighing of certain articles and told them they were entitled to the full weight without the receptacle. Mrs. J. O. Ross urged the women present to enlist as members of the organization and asserted they would find It weU worth their while. Mrs. George Breaker gave an Instance of what the cucumber growers of Sea-brook had to contend against during the present season. She declared that they sold their product at 15 cents a orate, but that the women of Houston paid a dime for half a dozen. FULL LIST OF THOSE PRESENT NOT SECURED.

Contract for the construction .of the Industrial and Made-in-Houston building JJor-the No-Tsu-Oh Deep Water Jubilee will be let at once and the work of erect ing the Drat permanent exposition unit for Houston will be rushed forward as rapidly as ts compatible with the beat results, according to an announcement made by Chairman C. Staltl of the Made- ln-Houston committee Thursday night. At an enthusiastic meeting of members ot tbe committee and leading manufac turers or noustesi on tne Kice hotel roof Thursday night a list of exhibitors was begun and a number of reservations were made. Reports by various members of the committee Indicated that the en tire space will be subscribed before the building is ready for Installing the exhibits. The committeemen have met with encouragement everywhere and the members believe that this will be by far the most successful effort ever made to hold an Industrial show In this city. Among the reasons being given by thf manufacturers are talcing space for their eagerness to secure the best positions is tne tact tnat tne No-Tsu-Oh of this year will be attended by thousands of people who have never attended nrevious No- Tsu-Oos. The deep wajer celebration is being advertised throughout Texas in liberal newspaper announcements and In all street parades in this State by the Bar- num 4fc Bailey circus. That show is also placing large posters on cross-country roads announcing the No-Tsu-Oh. : The railroad companies are giving better rates than before. A large number of Texas merchants will be In Houston as guests of the Bankers, Manufacturers and Jobbers association and numerous other features of the celebration are calculated to bring visitors of that class that the man-facturers are most anxious to appeal to. In addition to these facts. It is pointed out that the Houston celebration will be one of the very few attractions of an en tertainment nature that will be held in Texas this fall. Many of the towns that have previously held celebrations and fairs have decided not to hold them this fall.
