FRANK KELTON WITH KELTON-WALTERS CO.

Opera House, July 9-10

Two entirely new plays will be presented, Friday night, the play will be one which Henry Miller, one of America's greatest actors presented all through the U. S. at high prices and this is positively the only show playing it. This play is a psychological comedy drama and teaches a moral to all who witness it. "The Havoc" is the name of this peculiar play and it is endorsed by all the leading papers of the country.

The Saturday night performance will be a rip roaring comedy, built for laughing purposes and bound to please one and all. The doctors say "Laugh and get well." If you are sick come see the Kelton-Walters Company Friday night and you are sure to get well. Remember Friday and Saturday nights, July 9-10.
