EUINNING with Alphonse Berg's
unique fashion show as the first
act on the bill clear through to the
lart act, which features Little Pipifax,
one of vaudeville's funniest clowns,
the new bill at Pantages is an excel
lent one. One of the most delightful
acts among the many is that of the
two Weaver brothers, who are weav
ers of comedy set to music. As typi
cal hayseeds and self-conscious to the
bursting point, they gallop onto the
stage, bowing and scraping awk-
wardly. One plays a weird stringed

"Down on the Arkansas" with a dozen
choruses and a wild dance for added
measure. Then they have a duet play

A pair of whizE-bang men dancers
are Miller and Capman, whose steps
are the last cry in eccentricity. One
of the debonair dancers does intricate
steps inside the confines of a whirl

cialty which is amazing in its achieve
ment of difficult and sensational
steps. They add variety with several
ongs, cleverly put across. The two
are smiling, snappy chaps who are
such prime favorites by the time their
-act is done that the audience is loath
to let them go.
I.ittlo Pipifax is a roustabout clown
who pantomimes cleverly and gets
tangled with the tables and chairs and
his own self until the audience roars.
He is a good acrobat, too and sets
all his art to comedy. A clever chap

Alphonse Berg is a theatrical per

odds and ends of material, the piano

and artistic and very colorful.

RAIN HELPS BERRIES
Shower Declared Worth Thousands
to Apple Growers.
HOOD. RIVER, Or., June 7. (Spe
cial.) All mid-Columbia fruit dis
tricts were visited by a steady. down
pour of rain last night and today,
which will be of inestimable benefit
to strawberry districts of Underwood
mnd White Salmon, Wash., where no
Irrigation is available. The season's
crop in these districts will be in
creased 10 to 15 per cent, it is said.
The rain, according to A. W. Stone,
executive manager of the Applegrow
ers' association, is worth thousands
of dollars to applegrowers.
While the showers'will delay pav
ing between here and Sonny, they
will be of great benefit to county
highways, laying dust and prevent
ing the early disintegration of roads
as a result of the heavy automobile
and motor-truck traffic.
