Man, dear, you don't
know what a really good in-
dependent film service you can get
until you've tried mine! You don't know
what vast improvements have been made in inde-
pendent films! True, there was a time when they
were inferior to the trust stuff. Nobody but a
jassax would deny that. But things are altogether
different now. I'll send you films that you'll swear
are first, second or third run, but they won't cost
first, second or third run prices! Just let me prove
that I am the best as well as the biggest film renter
in the world! My customers are simply wild with
enthusiasm! Write to me!

Janesville-That the five-cent theater
ordinance which was passed at the last
regular meeting of the common coun-
cil is null and void and will have to be
passed over again is a fact which will
be gently broken to the city fathers
this evening. It appears that the meas-
ure was altered considerably after it

SEATTLE, Wash., Oct. 31.-Dignified
with the title of "Theatrettes," be-
stowed upon them by local newspapers,
who qualify it with the statement that
"vaudeville motion pictures" are pro-
duced  therein, ten  moving   picture
houses here have been induced to run
ads, in our daily papers, with the un-
derstanding that no suabjects may be
announced and that the ads. will appear
in columns other than those devoted to
amusements. Five of the ten houses
are tinder one management and use
slides to boost the othesr hotises of the
comhination. All are well patronized,
due, doubtless, to Seattle's large float-
ing population.-nOWLEY.
