AT THE LYRIC
On next Tuesday night. March 9th,
the Lyric Theater of this place will
surpass all its previous efforts to
please its patrons by puting on the
greatest feature in its three year’s
history—and perhaps for the next
three years to come.
Manager Roberts, ever alive to the
interests of bis playhouse, saw in the
picture journals, and in the press of
the state, that Annette Kcllerman
bad staged a picture and the show
was being received in all the large
cities very favorably, at a high price.
He determined to get the picture for
Kingsville just as soon as posible
and accordingly went to work at
once. That was several weeks ago,
and only yesterday closed the final
arrangements for this magnificent
“But fifty cents for a picture show
is a whole lot’ isn’t it,” you are ask-
ing. Not very much, when one con-
siders everything connected with
this truly marvelous picture. In the
large cities the same price, and even
more, was charged and in the city of
Dallas alone, several thousands of
dollars was the door receipts. As
the world knows, Miss Kcllerman
is the most perfect woman living to-
day, and perhaps more so than any
woman who has ever lived. The most
remarkable feature of this perfect
woman is that she has accomplished
it all herself, by proper living, dieting
and physicial culture exercises. Her
measurements equal and in many in-
stances surpass the broadest ideas of
old-time Grecian ideas, vicing with
the Venus de Milo and Diana for the
honors. In this age of awakening "invited,
physical advancement, Miss Keller-
man proves conclusively that the

present race is not retrograding and
that is is probable the present cen-
tury will produce more perfect speci-
mens of humanity than any previous
age. She is truly the perfect woman
with the form divine.
Aside from this most wonderful
woman of all the ages, along with
her in this play is over a thousand
people helping her to make this the
most gorgeous and stupendous mov-
ing picture ever put on a screen. Be-
cause of Mis Kellerman’s classic
mode of swimming and her perfect
freedom in the water, she casts her-
self as Neptune’s daughter, goddes of
sea and her reign beneath the
a beautiful story woven in
beautiful scenery around a beautiful
woman. The picture is seven good
reels long and worth every cent of
the money asked to see it, to those
who love beautiful pictures and fo
those who know Miss Kellermann by
reading. The press of the entire
country lavishly praise the produc-
tion and it is hardly likely the Kings-

before going to the Phillipines to en-
ter the army. The first of the even-
ing was enjoyably spent in singing
and in making candy, after which an
informal buffet luncheon was served
by the hostess. The color scheme of
gold and green was carried out. The
guests left at a very late hour and
declared having spent a very pleas-
ant evening. The out of town guests
left on the Saturday morning train.
Why Not the Editor?
There are more lawyers than any
other profession in the legislature.
The farmers are next in point of num-
bers and surprisingly, newspaper men
are third. We utterly fail to under-
stand why, if this be, true, some sort
of legislation favorable to the news-
papers of the state, cannot be enact-
ed. It is a well known fact that no
law ever gets on the statute books
favorable to the newspapers. Several
years ago a law was passed requiring
commissioners courts tQ have their
printing done outside of the trust
concerns of the state, but flaws were
discoverd in the law and it has sig-
nally failed in its purpose as witness
the use today in nearly every county
of the state of trust printed legal
blanks and bound books..At the pres-
ent session of the legislature, the
editors of the state got a bill intro-
duced requiring the legal notices
which have hitherto been posted on
the front of the courthouse and in
all kinds of places, to be printed in
the newspapers. When the bunch fin-
ally got through with the bill the
father of it did not recognize it, and
if passed as now stands, will not be
worth a tinker’s d-n to the country
newspaper fellow. Why in the name
of—well the Kaiser—don’t these edi-
tors who are in the legislature help
out their fellows who stay at home?
