described, is as follows: Chaplin sc
secures a job as assistant actor with
tho Essanay Comedy company
through stress of circumstances lie
finally becomes the hero of the pl y
enabling him to take revenge on all
the others who abused and mistreated
him. He shuns everybody and every
thing kicks and pummels his enemy,
Bun Turpin, steps on tho lead! g
lady's train with the result that hr
shapely silk stockinged calves with
appendages of feet, in French heeled
slippers continue on their upward iy
unconscious of the public gaze thin
is one of tho least offences committed
by the clever commedinn.
This picture has a lot of kick to it,
something doing every minute. IU
simply a riot of laughter and two reela
of fun are bound to make you sit up
and take notice.
Cliarlie Chaplin was the star corn

What Hartmau Thinks of Hie Fair
A. J. Hartmau who returned on the
Elizabeth from San Francisco says the
exposition is tho finest yet. "1 have
seen fairs before" volunteered Mr.
Hartmau, "but none to cqurl this one.
I saw the expositions at Portland,
Chicago, Paris, and the Centenhil at
Philadelphia but this one has them all
beaten. It is larger and better in many
ways. It must be better in the manner
of things. New appliances and di-t
coveries have made it possible to give
an exposition never before equaled."
Notwithstanding this and notwith
standing he had paid his board a week
in advance Hartmau was glad to cut
short his visit, had grown tired of
sight seeing when the Elizabeth was
ready to return.
Your dollars are worth just double
