The change of "program offered . at
the Palace theater last night is a strong
one.. There are -three really excellent
films, "The Way of the Cross" being
the best of the three.1 This is a story
of the struggles of the early .Christians
in Rome during the reign of Nero, the
tyrant, is well staged and acted and is
intensely interesting throughout. "Cold
Plunge in Moscow" shows a man taking
a swim in the river at Moscow, Russia,
with the thermometer below zero. ' 'An
Heroic Father" is also good, being the
story of a father s rescue of his son
from a band of brigands. While Miss
Spangler makes the most possible of
the 'songs, they are punk. The bill
will be repeated tonight. .

A great many Eugene people are
going to burn coal this winter instead
of wood, says the Guard. This is al
most an inovation in Oregon ' and : the
West, but in the East the woodsaw
as frequently seen as the coal wagon is
here. Several Easterners have during
the past few winters moved here with
coal stoves that are used to coal fur
naces " only, LiOOKine the matter up
they find that it is possible to ship coal
at almost the same price as wood. , So
it happens that this winter much more
is being seen in town than previously.
The cost here is about $10 a ton, for
coal that sells in the East for $3 and $4,
but with the cost of oak, , maple and
fir wood ranging from $5 to $6 a cord it
is really as cheap to burn one fuel as
the other. The coal is generally con
sidered mnch the easier and more con
venient. - A bin in the cellar takes up
much less room than the unsightly
woodshed and. the coal hod and
small shovel beside the stove is more
easily handled than the wood box and
pleases the small, boy that has to split
wood. ; In a few years, perhaps, when
the price of' wood has advanced an
other notch or two, coal will be shipped
here in greater quantities, and sold at a
price so that the begrimed coal man
with' his baskets or coal shute is a
familiar character.- c 4 "
