PALACIOS BEACON. PALACIOS, TEXAS
In Fine Show
In conformity with their policy of
presenting the best of entertain-
ment available at all times, Cleve
Pullen, manager of the Granada
Theater, has announced that King
Feton, “the man of mystery”, has
been booked for an indefinite time
at that theater.
King Felton, Master Magician,
is one of the oldest in the show
business in so far as length of time
in the profession is concerned and
has associated with and been ac-
quainted with some of the greatest
illusion artists of all time, as a
fellow illusionist of first rank. Dur-
ing the days when vaudeville was in
its prime, Felton carried some of
the best bookings available with
the Keith, Radio, Orpheum circuit
and the Bert Levey circuit, both of
them “Big Time."
He carries an exceptionally large
assortment of live stock to add to
the interest of his show and his
repertoire of tricks, stunts and il-
lusions would require more than
five hours if he were to perform
them all at one showing Possessed
-also of a pleasing personality and
■an intense desire to entertain his
aadience, Felton is rated as one of
the top-notch performers in his
chosen line of work. It is his great-
est pleasure to see a genuine ap-
preciation of his work and every
showing to him is a new opportun-
ity to please his public.
Mr. Felton is accompanied by his
wife who is a noted comedienne in
her own name and an exceptionally
efficient assistant in his work. One
of his most sensational tricks is
the shooting of a bullet from a rifle
through the body of his wife. The
bullet is marked and carries a rib-
bon which trails behind. With this
trick of illusion he has mystified
and fooied many thousands of peo-
ple in many parts of the country.

refrigerator, now on display
Koerber Sales Company, contains
more new or improved features
designed especially to meet the
changing requirements of the mod-
ern homemaker than models of
previous years. Increased ice cube
capacity, added shelf area, greater
flexibility of the storage space,
more easily removed ice cube trays

sleek design of the exterior which

As in previous years, a survey of
homemakers throught this country
was made to determine their prefer-
ences in choosing a new refrigera-
tor. This year's model presents a
well designed refrigerator that will
capture the heart of every woman
who loves beauty in the kitchen.
Last year, a novel shelf arrange-
ment was introduced whereby a
homemaker could raise or lower a
shelf into one of three positions, re-j
move storage trays to suit her con-
venience, or place them in
position so she could store bulky
foods without disturbing other foods
stored in the refrigerator. This
flexibility has been further enhanc-
ed in this year’s model. A second
large shelf has been added which
may be placed in one of two posi-
The exterior of the 1941 model
has been redesigned, adding new
charm and beauty with more snug

ance of the refrigerator has been
