'"llenry's Wedding" is a sure cure for all ills It will ,_nake you forget the depression, Mary s mumps, John- ny's cold, and your own aches and pains, with it's side-splitting com- edy. Put Marie Dressler, Polly /ttor- an. Charlie Chmflin, the 4 Marx Brothers. Amos and Andy, A. Joison, Clara Bow and Ginger Rogers into ne show and you'd get a tuch of the pep and comedy you find in "Henry's Wedding-' It's a scream! Can you imagine anything funnier than the pictures of the gay 90s with their peg top pants, bustles, cel- luloid collars, andwing tail coats and hoop skirts. Here you ll see living portraits of the god old horse and buggy days re,resented by local bus- iness men--John W Rupp as Daisy Bell and Ray. Harry M. Blout as her "Bicycle beau;" L. L. Hargis bring- ing Uriah Tendick to Henry's Wed- dins in the first Horseless Carriage; Orville E. Martin as Gas Hou Har- ry; Dr. G. F. Wait as the Flapper of 1890; George W Curtis as Mrs, Bloomer, with B. H. Keck as the Hen- pecked Husband. These are just a few of the wedding guests of Uncle Henry. Each of the Beaus and Belles will he estumed in the style of the olden dys, and this feature alone is worth the price of admission. Another outstanding'feature is the meeting of the Colored brethern and sistern of the Mystic Shrine. After Uncle Henry disappears, the negro cook (Miss Lucille Marshall) calls on the Mystic Shrine to hold a seance with the sirits to find Uncle Henry. About twenty of the best women and men singers of the community will be seen "in this meetin'" in which they sing negro spirituals, commune wid de spirits, and get washed in de holy water of de Mystic Shrine to the tune of "Sing You Sinners." The story eoncern the trials and tribulations of Uncle Henry, a bach- elor bridegroom of 55 (Albert Shell- hammer), and a wealthy widow Legion Band Award $200 Many ML Pulaskians and hum- dreds from Logan county were pres- ent at the State Fair grounds in Springfield Sunday afternoon to wit- nes- the most impressive and thrill- ing spectacle of the entire fair. when scores cf drum corps, drill teams and military bands put on their competitive drills a.d .laying. The Logan County Legiox Band of fifty membes was entered in the competitive playing and received a prize of $200. The band under the leader:hip of Paul Merry. and di- rected in their marching by Drum Major George Ohmes, made a ve ry creditable showing, not only with their spic and span uniforms, but in their handling of difficult concert numbers that were required. This is the first year the band has entered competitive playing, and the change from a milch band to a con- cert band has been rather sudden for the handling of heavier numbers in the manner in which the boys would like. But with another winter oI rehearsing such as they had the past year, the band will be in first class shape for such strenuous work. The Chicago Board of Trade band, which "won first place in the state convention at Danville last week, was present, but did not enter competi- tion, phying however a concert later in the evening. And what a :weet band. It makes a fellow want to throw his horn away---but he doesn't. Pe:ria won first place; Wood- lawn. second; and Belleville, third A mammoth display of fireworks brought the evening's program to a close.

The studio will not only serve a headquarters for photographic work it, this locality, but will be the cen- tral workshop for finishing phote graphs which are sent to Messrs. Beidler and Viken from all parts of this country and Canada. Both artists are residqnts of Man- hassett. Nine-tenths of the worth- while pictures, Mr. Beidler said, are taken in the home and on private grounds. For this reason the mod- ern :7.hotographer whose patrons re- side in the country, is moving to.the suburbs rather than to spend most [of his day driving to and from the ity. | Up to 1917 Mr. Beidter operated l,'der the firm name of D=nald Cam- eron Beidler in Chicago. During his v;ork there he realized the shortcom- ing of an ordinary camera, and in 1022 was joined by Antonius d. Viken. Together they developed the Beidier-Viken Twin Camera, which by means of a s;,arae focusing pro- cess, eliminates posing and, accord- ing to the designers, makes possible more life-like ,3ortraits than have ever before been known.
