CENTBAL THEATRE PICTUBES.
USED IN "THE TEXAN."
Tom Mix's company, .which recently completed fllining "The Texan," a William Fox production from the novel by James H Heridryx, which is to open at the Central Theatre tonight, succeeded in obtaining some excellent material for the picture during the big championship rodeo held at Prescott,. Alriz., as pant of the "Frontier Days" celebration.
The rodeo scenes are one df the important phases of the picture, for it is we.ll known tha,t nothing in the paaftimes of the true sons ofl the plains is so typical of Western atmosphere as the annual rodeo.
The daring exploits of the cowboys during the steer bulldpgging events, the broncho "busting" and contests of skill with the lariat, as recorded on the film, will be interesting to persons ail over the icountry—especially tp fpllowers of the Western type of story. Incidentally, many of Mix's cowboys, -who figure in every Mix picture, entered ithe events and several succeeded in carrying away first honours. Every puncher entered made .a good showing, .which is remarkable* inasmuch as they were competing against men fresh from the ranges.
Mix himself! serjved as one of the judges during the week of festivity and games. P,ait Chrfeman» a Mix eowpuncher, won first prize for the best appearance at the parade, and Ed. Hendershott received first money in the star bulldbgging contest when He defeated "Wild Bill" Simon, the idol of Y_£vapi County, by half a second.
