Secretary Kalbfus, of the State
Game Commission, lias issued the fol
lowing important notice to huuters
throughout the State, to impress upon
them the fnet that the license tag worn
by all hunters must be placed ou the
arm, and not carried concealed, as some
of the hunters did last year:
"1 write you to-day regarding a
matter of great importance to hunters
j in Pennsylvania and refer to the wear
i ing of the tag. bearing the number of
| the license issued to a hunter, and
' would say under the provisions of the

Resident Hunter's License Law —it is
just as important that the tag be worn
as provided by the law —'on the arm
between the shoulder and the elbow,' —j
as it is to secure the license and carry !
same when hunting. We are afraid
there may _be some hunters who will
disregard this provision of law and we
want to caution all licensed hunters to
be sure to wear the ta j accompanying
all licenses, as provided for bv law.
The State has provided quite sufficient
of the license blanks and tags to the
several county treasurers, so that there
is no need of huuters not being equip
ped. We want all hunters to understand
this matter, so that we will have no
causg to trouble or auuov them." j

COLONIAL TO RAVE MORE
AND BETTER VAUDEVILLE
Management Announces Change In Pol
icy Under Which There Will Be an
Additional Act oa Each Bill All of
Which Will Be More Costly
The clamor of many local theatre
goers lor a more pretentious vaudeville
bill ami the shorter film service at the
Colonial theatre has resulted in a de
cided departure in the kind of enter
tainment to be provided for patrons
of that playhouse. Wilnior & Vincent
who during the last month have been
experimenting to determine the type of
entertainment most popular at the Co
lonial, have decided to put in bigger
and more costly vaudeville attractions.
These vaudeville acts are to be booked
out of the Keith Hooking Oflice and
they are to be four in number.
Although this is only one more aft
than was shown heretofore, it is an
nounced these four acts will be far
superior to those that have been ex
hibited in the past. The management
declares that these features will all be
worthy of places on high class vaude
ville bills and that each program will
have its headliner.
There will not only be improved
vaudeville, but improvement in the
plan of presenting these nitrations.
The four acts will follow each other
without a moving picture shown be
tween. The moving picture features
will be shown before and after the
The hours of the Colonial's running
will be continuous as usual. From 11
o clock until 2."0 the first run of li
censed films will be exhibited, and the
entertainment will be the picture show
on i v.
At 2.30 the first vaudeville bill of
the day will begin, all four acta being
presented, one after the other, aud then
the pictures will follow. During the
hours of 6 to 7 o'clock, pictures only,
will be presented. At 7 o'clock the
first vaudeville bill of the evening
will be offered and after the pictures
for this performance are shown a sec
ond complete vaudeville bill will be
put on beginning at it o'clock.
The vaudeville bills will be changed
twice weekly as before, on Monday and
The proposed improvement in the
vaudeville offerings is indicated by a
glance over the bookings made for the
first week. For instance, the feature of
the first half of the week will be a
pleasing n|iniature musical comedy call
ed "The Beile Boys and the Beles."
The act requires a clever cast of come
dians and pretty girls and also an at
tractive stage setting. It is described
as one of those catchy features with
Rood /nil anil new songs. Miller and
Tempest, a widely known pair of song,
comedy and patter artists, wiil also ap
pear. A 1 Kdwards, a black faced come
dians. and hear and Fields, in comedy,
songs and dances, will complete the
roster for the first half of the week.
i The vaudeville bill for the last half
jof the week will be headed off by the
I Three Musical KUisons, offering a
j picturesque musical novelty. This at
traction has scored manv success's in
leading vaudeville theatres. The clever
! novelties supporting it will be present
jed .lames Kennedy and Company,
Who were favorites at the Orpheu'm
two seasons ago and who will present
i their new comedv called " lack -wift;"

and in a minute a hundred hatchet

were up it seemed that every thirty

Worked in Stiff Collars
When the central sections were so
far toward completion that the carpeii
ters got in each other s way, the fore
men turned their attention to triangu
lar central roof sections, which fit on
the rop of the two highest uprights in
the center of the tabernacle. At 11
o'clock the first upright was in place on
the North street side and in thirty
minutes more thp second roof section
was -n place.
In the meantime the smaller upright
sectious were going up and the work
men were running, from the raising of
onp upright section to the rope on the
windlass which was pulling the center
sections into place. Fifty men would
get hold of the rope on the windlass.
By noon there were but four upright
sectious remaining to be set in place
and immediately after luncheon the
men started work on the roof timbers.
There were as many spectators this
morning as men engaged on the work
and the convenient piles of lumber
made excellent grandstands for the
idle ones. Hundreds stayed through
out the morning, while others stopped
for a passing glance. Some who went
to see remained to work and before
the morning was half gone, spectators
were treated to some unusual sights.
The members of a crew with fifteen
pound sledge hammers driving stakes
for braces were wearing white shirts,
stiff white collars and bow ties. That
had nothing to do with their abiiity to
drive stakes, however, as they seemed
to be old hands at it, making short
work of the task.
Clergymen in Overalls
There weie many white shirts.
Some of the hardest workers were wear
ing clerical garb. One clergyman with
a nail pouch was wearing a coat atop of
that. Some clergymen were garbed in
overalls from head to foot, but few of
them had regulation carpenter's hats on.
Somehow a black derby hat does not
fit into the picture of a carpenter, but
the wearers worked just as effectively.
A score or more of old hands at the
barn-raising business were wearing
their regular working outfits, dirty and
begrimed from much use. In strange
contrast to these men were bright, new.
shiny nail pouches distributed to the
green hands by an enterprising mer
chant. It seemed that there were not
qtiite enough of these to go around and
one clergyman, wearing a silk shirt,
khaki trousers and leggings, had his
wife's handbag around his waist, filled
with 20-penny nails.
The Rev. John Henrv Raugherty.
pastor of the Ridge Avenue Methodist
church, was in charge of the commis
sary department for the workers and
he saw to it that the men were mar
shaJed to his church at Sixth and Herr
streets for the noonday meal. There
was a sight to behold. There were
seats for 250 men in the social hall
of the church. Ladies from all of the
co-operating churches were on hand to
serve the hungry men.
And what a menu! Roast beef, sal
ad, potatoes boiled in salt water—the
ladies insisted that the salt water be
mentioned—stewed corn and hot cof
fee. There were not enough water
glasses on hand, so the men had to
drink coffee, and, what's more, but two
pies, were sent in. Nobody would say
who got the pies. There were six
cakes, far too few for that crowd of
men, if all were to share in the deli
Cheer Message From Dr. Stough
At noon it was reported to the la

to be fed. Everything was in readiness

Aside from the actual'work of build

j chicken invaded the confines of the

Carpenter 82 Years Old
There were many gray-bearded men
j among the workers, all of them nailing
vigorously. The first on hand was
! Charles Boyer, member of the Board
of Poor Directors. He had his square,
saw and hammer. Dr. C. W. Swing his
white beard flowing over his chest,,
worked throughout the morning. The
oldest carpenter by profession who
J turned up to help build the tabernacle
| was Jacob Lehman, 82 years old, of
I'elibrooks His appearance caused a
j deal of enthusiastic comment.
The ladies were not left out of the

I to help and she was permitted to insert
a bolt in an upright. Her companion,
