HAY WARD'S PICTURES
LAST FRIDAY'S PROGRAMME
An excellent programme of pictures was screened on Friday evening, including the great star film "balambo." The story of Salatnbo, the Cartha giuian high priestess, and her love for the soldier leader, Macar, is a sad one, and the final scene where she has to light her lover's funeral pyre ig harrowing, but the scenes were most beautiful, and Macar's. midnight ride back to Carthage to see his ladylove was very fine indeed. " Kobert Ji'mmet" is a character, in history who claims the sympathy of all, whether Irish born or not, and the story of his short fight for Ireland was shown very clearly. Again, the final scene could not fail to be sad, but the picture cannot fail to appeal to all. "The Spring Round Up" is another drama full of interest from start to finish; while the picture of Cettinge and its environs wag full of interest, especially as so much is now heard of Montenegro. There were good comics, including "Palidor Thicks Himself Invincible," "Petronila's Monkey," "Pat and the Monkey," "Wb.ch is Which," etc.
