Improving Stage. ,
Theatre-goers will be surprised oq vis
iting the opera house when this building
is opened to the public on the appear
ance of the first attraction next fall.
Frank Grove3, manager of the opera
house, is spending quite a bit of money
in having new scenery painted.
The main drop curtain will prove a
revelation. All remember the old cur
tain, which was good the new one is
far finer and more attractive. J. M
Deeds, of Eugene, painted the old cur
tain two or three years ago and he is the
artist at present engaged. The new drop
curtain is completed and the scene rep
resented is Mt. Rainier from Lost Lake
it is beautiful and a silent testimonial to
the ability of Mr. Heeds.
In addition to the above-mentioned
curtain Mr. Deeds will paint the grand
draperies and tormentors. He expects
to complete the task by the last of the
week. In this connection it is proper to
state that Mr. Groves will book only first
class attractions for the coming season.
Nearly all his bookings will be eastern
Old Order Rescinded.
Heretofore an order of the countv
court has been in force to the effect that
all claims of Benton county road super
visors must be published in a newspaper
for three consecutive issue3 of said paper
before the court would allow the claim.
This was done in order that residents of
the various districts might report discrep
ancies in the claims of the supervisors
should any exist.
The new court, considering the fact
that the various supervisors are under
bonds and make oath to their claims,
and that the matter of publishing said
claims is an additional and unnecessary
expense to the county, have rescinded
the old order and hereafter will assume
the responsibility of paying these claims
as per law required. An order to this
efTecTwas made at the last meeting of
thj county court.
