FIRE DESTROYS BEACH RESORT
EARLY SUNDAY MORNING.
PROl'RIETOR AND FAMILY
BARELY ESCAPE WITH LIVES
Tho Wigwam, belonging. to E. Lew
in, and one of Bnndon's pojiulor re
sorts, was totally destroyed by fire
early Sunday morning. When tho
blaze was discovered it had gained
such headway that Mr. Lewin and
family barely escaped with their
Mr. Lewin does not know just how
the fire started but it was first dis
covered around tho kitchen flue, nnd
the electric wiring. As soon as the
fire was discovered the alarm was
turned in, but thcrd was no water or
hydrant near tho place, so nothing
could be done to save it., and the en
tire building, including the store, tile
dance hall and Mr. Lewin's living J
partments were destroyed, as well as
all their stock and household goods
making a total loss of over $11,000,
with only $1200 insurance.
Although Mr. Lewin naturally fcols
his loss vcr keenly, he is not dis
couraged, but expects "to rebuild and
go ahead again.
It seems that tho old adage of
never one fire, but wc must have
three, has held good in Bandon, as it
has been only a littlo'ovpr two weeks
since the big fire, and then a small
houso burned in tho east end of town
n few days later, and now comes the

that tba pro verbial Jj"Cj; will ..ufijco

GOOD FEATURE WEDNESDAY
AT THE ORPIIEUM THEATRE
Thesecond installment of "Lucilo
Love, the -girl of Mystery" will bo
Bhown at tho Orphoum Theatre to
morrow night, Wednesday, July 1st.
Tho first of this series was shown
last Wednesday, and proved ono or
the most interesting feature filmp
ever shown in Bandon.
Tho second story of this series op
ens when Lucilo deserts tho hydro
piano in tho open ocean and makes a
sensational landing on the steamer.
Then for the first time Loubcquo bc
com esawaro that his prorgam of re
venge is being interfered with. The
moment ho sees tho girl ho is struck
with her rescmblanco to his first love
who in reality was Lucilft's mother.
His first move was to send out an un
signed wireless mcsagc that General
Lovo and not his aide, was tho traitor
who sold tjio diplomatic secrets. As
soon as this mcsago is sent out Lou
bepuo wrecks tho wireless apparatus
so thnt no further communication cai
be hold with the vessel. In doing so
ho causes ah explosion in which he is
injured. While acting as his nurse
Lucilo locates tho diplomatic papers
which Loubepue has stolen and placed
the blame on hor 'father. Tho ship
catches fire and burns to tho waters
edge, and Lucilo with the other wo
men on tho boat arc put off in a lifo
boat, which is caught by a big wave
and capsized. Lucilo finally lands, a
lono castaway upon ono of the South
For thrills you can't beat this pic
ture which will bo shown at tho Or

BIG FEATURE AT-THE

"The Great Leap" in four parts, or
"Uutil Death Does Us Part," is a
thrilling story of a fued drama of lovo
and hato in tho Kentucky mquntains.
This picture was staged under the di
rection of D. W. Griffiths, tho man who
made all the great Biograph produc
tions famous. The action throughout
this big production is constant; you
will unconsciously arise from your
scat, gripped by the intense emotions
the players portray in this exceiting
play. The great climax comes when
Heand'-She-clinging together' on'- a
madly galloping horse, driven to
dispair, dash over the cliff down CO

"ZU ZU, THE BAND LEADER"
AT THE GRAND FRIDAY
When the Keystone Picture Com
pany, famous for their comedies, pro
duced "Zu Zu, the Band Leader," they
certainly scored the biggest hit that
any moving picturo audience has had
the pleasure of laughing at. To
create a farce comedy of two reels-
that bubbles over with comicnl situ
ations from the time the title is flash
ed on tho screen is no small under
taking and Mr. Sennett, the creator
of "Zu Zu" deserves tho unstinted
praise he has received from all over
the U. S. for giving us a real alive
comedy feature. Ford Sterling plays
Zu Zu and puts an abundant amount
of gingered animation in his part.
In his gymnnstics lie outdoes the
wildest efforts of the longest haired
Latin that ever crossed tho ocean at
the head of a royal musical organi
zation. Miss Normand, as Mable, is
as nimble as ever, timo and again
risking a session with a bonesetter.
Mr. Haggerty is Caesar, he of the
striped sweater and skin tight trou
sers. "Zu Zu" tho band leader will
make you shed tears of joy. You may
come to the show with a frown, but
you will go out with a smile. At the
Grand next Friday, July 3rd. 1
