N MEMS FROM THE MOUNT. A taxi never becomes horse, but tenors in taxis often do. t Scene: Local Police Court. Someone had been playing Jimmy Wilde on Tansy Lee. "Who struck the first blow?" the Clerk asked. "I did when he shtruck me," came the response, and only one person laughed. The Turner Opera Co. have been hav- ing a good time of it in the Mount, They like the mountains and dales and Ferndales. Just one question-Would it be right to say of Satanella. that it was the devil's own job? Mount man's brother was prosecuted in Cardiff for evading the Restriction of Lighting Act. The witness for the prosecution stated that the defendant had got his blind down, three-quarters of the way up. That witness was evidently trying to blind justice. This gag may be repeated on any music-hall stage without fee or licence. Some time ago many hundreds of names were appended to a petition to the committee of the Workmen's Hall asking them to bring grand-or light operas to the theatre. There were dire threats if they didn't do so. The question is: Where are all those signatures this week;, Turnei-'s grand opera and many vacant seats. Verb sap. A kiddy walked into a front shop. Please my mother do ask for an orange box, one without oranges in," and then people say the world is empty of humour. Two banana merchants and one wholesale mint merchant and a boy in khaki. went for a motor spin to Pont- neatlix-atighai-i last week. They made the car spin so much coming back 17 yards of wall, a broken axle, a new tyre, one or two fingers and a steer- ing wheel are now on order. J
Grand Theatre, Aberaman. I There is rare merit in the programme presented at the "Grand" this week. J Topping the bill are "The world-famous Haley's Garden Komets," 12 in number, in their magnificent scena, "The Garden Revue," a revue of undeniable ex- cellence in every essential, and is being favourably commented upon by all who have witnessed it. The Komets' singing, dancing and tableaux are all effective. Their principal songs are "Good-bye dear old Scotland." "John Bull's Em- pire." and "Blue Eyes always find favour." They sing the French National Anthem in the French language. Rose Mayers, vocal speciality artiste, is given a capital reception. He renders several j selections, including Welsh and English airs. on four concertinas of different sizes, the smallest being only 2fins. On Friday and Saturday evenings he ) will play selections on the smallest concertina in the world, which is If ins. Another appreciative turn is Jean Kram. the erratic juggler, from the London Hippodrome, who gives some clever and smart exhibitions. "The Black DÜmlOnd." in three parts, is the chief picture shown. On Thursday and the remaining nights of the week the picture, "The Bridge on the Yser," will be shown. It depicts an episode of the great war--a drama in three reels. It is a film which brings home to all most forcibly the brave deeds of our gallant heroes at the front.

P ■" w EMPIRE, MOUNTAIN ASH. An innovation will be seen at the above house on Monday and during the week. Mr. Perry has engaged, at an enormous figure, the startling new up-to- moment play, "The enemy in our midst," under the direction of that well-known actor, Mr. G. Carlton Wall- ace. He brings with him a gigantic com- pany of star actors and actresses. The play goes through eleven scenes, with thrilling and stirring episodes of the war. There is the "naturalised Englishman and the unregistered German step- mother. The plot is cleverly con- structed, and the play splendidly mounted, showing the up-to-moment sen- sation, the great Zeppelin raid. Mr. Perry announces that the official war films, which have proved so popular, will be shown at each performance.
Aberdare Cinema. NEXT WEEK: "HIS LAST DEAL." A sensational and romantic picture will be screened by Clarke's the Man on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of next week. It is entitled "His Last Deal," and features the great boxer, James J. Corbett. It is a most important engagement by Clarke's the Man, and enhances his reputation in no small way. Gentleman Jim, as the great fight- ing man was called, earned that title in more ways than one, and he captured the hearts of the world when he overthrew the mighty Sullivan. His picturisation of the leading part in "His Last Deal is that of an artist, and all who see it will have many pleasurable thrills. On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of next week Clarke's the Man has an immensely strong programme to sub- mit. The Golden Lotus is the first attraction. A beautiful photo-drama, in a gorgeous Eastern setting, with the charming Cinema actress, Mile Regina Badet, in the chief part. It is magnifi- cently produced, and Clarke's the Man feels certain that it will prove one of the greatest ever seen in Aberdare. Another welcome return is announced of Charles Chaplin, the indefatigable comedian of tfie cinemas. This is Charlie's latest, and is entitled, "Dough and Dynamite." As will be gathered from its title, it is an extra- ordinary laughter producer, for the beholder simply revels in the wonderful antics of this great little .man. Just a reminder-Chaplin is there for only three days this time, and can only be seen at the Aberdare Cinema.
HaggarV Aberdare. NEXT WEEK: "THE PUPPET CROWN." There is nothing of the curate's egg about the programme of Councillor Haggar at his Market Street Theatre. Right down good throughout is the verdict ,and deservedly so. This Thursday, Friday, and Saturday a splendid comedy-drama by the Famous Players Company will be screened. It 's entitled "A wild goose chase," and those who require a lift out of the rut of these strenuous times cannot do better than see this splendid piece of comedy by a splendid company. "The Broken Coin will proceed to its 19th episode, in which one of the most startling events in this great serial is shown. The farcical serial, "Patsy Bolivar." will proceed to the 10th escapade. For Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of next week Mr. Haggar has secured another of the Famous Players films, entitled '"The Puppet Crown," in which will be seen the I famous and beautiful actress, Miss Ina Clare. Another progression of the won- derful serial, "Exploits of Elaine," will also be shown. An up-to-date war pic- ture is als6 on the programme, and will excite keen interest. It is called "The Face at the Telephone," and the story, of a young inventor, who has dis- covered the secret of seeing the person's face who is speaking to you on the i 'phone. It is full of real thrills, and there is a pretty love story running through it. There will be a continuous performance every day from three o'clock, and a show for children on Saturday afternoon. Don't forget that wonderful picture, "The Circus of Death." is coming to Saggar's very shortly.
