Buying Coal
In Winter Months
is an extravagance.
e can prove it to you.
The price of Mixed Nut Coal this month
is $6.55 for 2,000 lbs.
From September Ist to April 1, 1916, thjs
sAme kind of coal will cost $7.05.
You save 50c on each 2,000 lbs.
Say you burn 20,000 lbs. ©. $6.55; cost
Tf you buy this amount on October Ist it
will cost you $70.50. *
You save $5.00 on $65.50 for six months, or at the
rate of 16$ per annum for money invested.
Now is it not extravagant to wait until
October Ist and pay so much more for the
coal ?

Patrons of the Majestic theatre next

vMsi-Donald, the most popular prima
donna' in America, in the irresistable
operetta, "Sweethearts."
There is an added charm to "Sweet
hearts" in these stirring time of wars
and rumors of wars, because it was
written in the care-free days of peace.
The first scene is in "the ancient city
of Bruges"—that same Bruges that
has figured in the stories of Belgian
horrors. There before you ar t > the red
tiled roofs, the stepped, a land
scape dotted with swishing windmills,
the short abundant skirts of the wom
en folk, the wooden shoes figuring in
special music—all showing what the
stage artist and the song writer were
wout to do before the war with the
quaint scenes of the Netherlands.—

College Girls Colonial Hit
The College Girls, who are appearing
at the Colonial Theatre, have evidently
taken a post-graduate course in the
art of entertaining. They are sfven
in number, with two valuable assist
ants in the male line to len I a co-edu
cational aspect to the act, and they are
pretty too. The whole show is an all
round good bill. Another novelty is
announced for the first thre,» days* next
week. The Electrical Venus will
prove a distinct novelty in spectacular
acts. The Colonial has presented sev
eral first class acts of this character,
inclulling "Th e Girls In the Moon,"
and "l>a Graciosa," who afterward
was headlined at Hammersteins. The
Klectrical Venus is another of these
things that are pretty to look at.—
