when he saw a man take out al
most enough stuff to start a hard
ware store. It was extras for
automobiles that have heretofore
had to be brought in by express
and cost in some instances about
Ave times as much as by parcel
post. The mail contractor these
days must reckon with this now
departure from the old time bus
iness and our "Uncle Sam" will
find he has to pay more for the
transportation of the mail. How
ever, the parcel post is here to
stay and is going to become more
popular. This same source of
transportation must be taken in
to consideration by the merchant
and as soon as its provisions
have become more familar to the
people the local merchant is go
ing to profit by it as he has
quite an advantage over the big
department stores that have
heretofore cut in on the local
man quite materially.

Tonawama Pictures Tonight
A delayed shipment of lilms
has been received by Tonawama
and tonight will witness one of
the best programs yet given by
the house. "Colleen Bawn" a
three reel special, is the articu-
lar feature tonight with "The
Katzenjammer Kids" thrown in
for good measure. The latter is
the lirst of a series of these com
ics that appear from time to time
at Tonawama. The management
is perfecting plans to make each
Saturday night a "feature night"
with some of the best films ob
tainable. The charge tonight
will be 25 and 15 cents, as these
features cost considerable more
than the ordinary priced films.
On tomorrow night the usual
Sunday night program this
time four reels, owing to the
holdup in mails, causing the non
arrival of the right order. The
pictures tomorrow night arc of a
high order and particularly popu
lar, as some of the well known
performers are featured. The
two entitled "Hronco Hilly and
the Handits," and "The Cowboy
Girls," are both line and full of
life, the latter a good comedy.

Tonawama management is ar
ranging to put on an additional

and 15 cents. These will be
good pictures, all passed by the
board of censorship, making the
show moral and refined.
