Harry Corson Clarke and his company
will appear here for one night, April "H,
and will present Ihe comedian's latest
laughing success entitled "Ilia Absent
Hoy, The play tells in huiiiurous vein
the slory of a man who lives, to all out
ward appearances, completely under the
control ol bis uiasleiliil wife, rinding
the allowance Ins wife lias made him in
every way inadequate for his needs, he
has invented lor the Improvement of Ins
resources, an absent Imy a son by a
former marriage, and, for the support of
the child, Mrs. Penny lias been in the
habit ol allowing her husband an extra
$100 each month. For twenty-five years
this has gone on, and at Ihe opening of
the pisy we are introduced to Mr. and
Mrs. Penny as they receive Ihe wishes of
their friends on the twenty-flfth anniver
sary of their wedding. Mrs. Penny,
moved, as it appears, by the occasion,
bids her husband write to the absent boy
and invite him to come home. The di
lemma in which the unhappy Pennie
finds himself and the means he adopts
to avoid the detection of his deceit, form
the basis for one of the luniiiest farces
imaginable. The company supporting
the star baa been specially selected and
no expense has been spared to make the
whole in every way a production that
will live long in the pleasant memories
ol those w ho w itness it.

There';s f4o Good Reason
WHY you should not own one of those fine" gold
watches we are now displaying in our show
windows, After many years of experience in the
watch business we found out, that almost every
person who is not wearing a watch, would pur
chase one at once , if they knew how reasonable
a good watch can be bought and how easy it is to
pay for one. Most of them say that they will not
own a Waterbury or some other cheap time piece
and that they are not able to invest in a good watch
We sell'good reliable Watches in Nickle Cases
from $5-x up. Fine Toss Filled Watches from
$13.00 up. Solid Silver Watches $6.oo up and
Solid Gold frouiM.oo up . ' .
It ia ery easy to buy one of our high-grade watches on
the installment plan. A person hardly ever feels able to
pay the full amount at on time, therefore we adopted this
plan in selling these on weekly or monthly payments.
If you have a few moments to spare we would like to have
you come in ank look at our watches and we will explain
our'method of selling them on the installment plan. We
do all kinds of Watch and Jewelry repairing.
