The Coquille shows have been
doing a good business for the
past few weeks and have shown
some excellent pictures.
Little Bobbie Connelly, who was
shown in two Vitagraphs at the
Scenic last week, is a lemarkable
kid actor, for his age. The Edison
company is also featuring a small
boy in the "A n d y ” pictures who is
a good one.
Manager Hall, of the Grand, has
received remarkable news to the
effect that Mary Fuller has left the
Edison company and joined the
Universal forces, by whom she will
be featured. Miss Fuller has made
a great reputation with the Vita-
graph and Edison companies, but
her later work has not seemed to

The Kathlyu series of pictures
seems to have good drawing power
and to be very pleasing to those
who like them, as they pull good
houses to the Scenic.
The Scenic has secured the "P er
ils of Pauline” series, to commence
in the near future. Pearl White,
formerly with Pathe and recently
with the Crystal, one of the hand
somest and cleverest of the movie
actresses, is featured in a series of
thrilling adventures, supported by
Crane Wilbur and some of the best
of the Pathe players. The pictures
should be well worth seeing.
Florence Lawrence, the old "B io
graph G irl” and the queen of the
movies, was seen again at the
Grand Sunday evening. She has
lost none of her old cleverness or
charm, and she is fairly well sup
ported in the Victor pictures.
