Pic-
The popular Shepard Moving Pictures
continues to draw good crowds and
grow in popularity. The reason is the
general satisfaction rendered and the
policy of constant change and high class
novelties ' given. ' On Saturday night
Oct 13 an extraordinary bill will be of
fared wherein more novelties of a sen
sational type mill be seen than ever be
fore in a moving picture performance.
Comedy, humor, pathos, sensation,
drama, and travel will be the special
inducements that will vie for favor. AH
new and interesting subjects will make
an exceptionally fine program TMDe-
serter a thrilling melodramatic study
is the subject of one of the most inter-
eating picture dramas ever presented
to the public The story founded on
fact, has many details of general inter
est relative to such proceedings. It is
a story finely told and clearly pictured,
a train of highly sensational climaxes
carefully graded are rounded in a sen
sational finish of startling proportions.
The picture is one that will please and
only one of a great serias of bigh class
subjects that go to make an attractive

The Little. Joker.
When Arthur Dunn came out of the
trunk at the opera house last night the
sentiment of the entire house as well as
the expressed opinion of the chorus
was "Isn't he cute!" and they, were
rigth. Then when it came to playing
his part the house 'again voiced its
query, "fcm't lie alright!"' ana tno ans
wer came in the repeated, persisent
andj vociferous encores. The Little
Joker we 3 as tall as any of his colleag
ues in comedy. ' .', .'
Ho was the diamond in the gold set
ting. ' - :- : -
The support was the veryest;The
chorus was fine and all the songs had
an enioysblo and catchy rhythm to
them 'which made it hard for the audi
ence to let them go. The lady mem
bers of the chorus met the require
ments of an exacting public pretty
faces, good stage presence, excellont
voices and beautiful costumes,- all of
which combined to give a moat enjoy
able opera. '::.',- ' a
The songs that produced the most
applause were "'Fairest Flower in Dix
ie"; "Don't You think 1 11 dd"T and I
Don't Want a Searchlight Light".
It may be that Mr. Dunn will make
another visit to New Bern and when he
does he may be assured of a hearty re
ception.

' Death ot Mrs. Guthrie.
Mrs. Cathrine Guthrie of North River
had been a great puffrer since Dec.
1905 until Sep 17 1906 at 4 30 p m, when
the death angel came and carried her
home to Jesus to meet her fcvedone;
that have gone on before. ,
Mrs. Guthrie had been a member of
the M E church South for over twenty
years. ' She was a true and faithfui
member, a kind and loving mother anu
grand-mother and was beloved by all
who knew her. Her suffering wat
very severe yet she never murmured.
She put her trust in Jesus, and said sht
was ready to meat her Goo. JU3t a
few days before she died the Lord bless
ed her with strength and voice and she
sang part of two hym.i, one "I am Go
ing Home to Heaven" the other I am
Safe in the Arras of Jesus"., From the
life she lived we have sweet hopes, and
her absence is alt vra have to' grieve
for, but it is hard . to say good by,
God's will be done. It is sweet to
know if we live right we can meet
mama and grand ma, with Jesus, where
parting is no more.
The old home looks sad and lonely
without her, though she was old yet
she was the charm of the home, always
bad a smile to greet us at the door and
tried to make life pleasant for all
around her- She leaves one son, one
daughter and six grand children t
mourn her toss. We let the bereavec
ones put their trust in God. and pre-
Dare to meet her in Heaven where
there will be no parting there.
Absent from the home but not from
the heart, eone but not forgotten. A
vacancy that can never be filled.
A FRIEND.
