Empire Theatre Company's Engage
ment at Opera House Bill
' The Empire Theatrical Company
opened a three night's engagement
at the Corvallis Opera - House last
night. The offering was "A Brok
en JJeart." and it held the attention
of a fair-sized audien:e. The story
deals with . the entanglement of a
prosperous miner with a scheming
adventuress, and the -situations re
sulting are full of pathetic interest.
The work of the entire cast was
highly creditable. Mr, Clayton, as
the miner, Mr. Brooks as "Jack"
the Shakespearian tramp, and Miss
Gresham as the adventuress per
haps deserving special mention.
Tonight, at the Opera House,
The Empire Theatre company ' will
present the five act comedy drama,
entitled, '"The Diamond Necklace
Robbery." This play tells a very
pretty love story, one which appeals
to the heart's best feelings and
shows the great sacrifices often
made in real life, by a true and de
voted heart for the object of its af
fection. The comedy element is
very strong, which makes a well
balanced play, and one which al
"The Pride of Blue Canyon,"a
four act comedy drama, will be the
offering of the company tomorrow
night. This play was written more
with a .view to creating laughter,
than to dramatic technique.- The
first three acts are set in the famous
Blue Canyon, the last in New York
City. Those who enjoy farce com
edy, will be well repaid for attending.

One Dollar Saved Represents Ten
- Dollars Earned. .
The average man does not save to exceed
ten per cent, of his earnings, lie must spend
nine dollars in living expenses for every
dollar saved. That being the case he can
not be too .careful about ..unnecessary ex
penses. Very often a few cents properly in
vested, like buying seeds for his garden, will
save several dollars outlay later on. it is
the same in: buying Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy.- It costs
but a few cents, and a bottle of it in the house
often saves a doctor's bill of several dollars.
