It is the Lewiston Evening Journals treat! Go to the Empire Theatre next week and see Norma Talmadge in her newest picture, “Smilin’ Through,” at this paper’s expense. Be one of the twenty-five who will take advantage of the Lewiston Evening Journal’s offer daily.

Here is the way. First obtain from your news dealer, newsboy, factory, department store or from one of the many places of distribution, one of the Journal coupons bearing a number in large type. It costs absolutely nothing. Then watch the Journal for your number. Twenty-five numbers are selected at random and printed daily. Every one of them is good for a free ticket to the Empire. If your number is not printed one day, it may be the next or another day. When it appears, you can exchange the coupon at the Empire theatre box office anytime within two days after the number has appeared.

Here is once when a theatre ticket may be had for nothing. To neglect getting a coupon seems like throwing the price of a ticket away.

Be sure and save the stub on the end of the coupon as it may bring you one of the beautiful Norma Talmadge Dolls on display in the window of Abbott Brothers Company on Lisbon Street. These dolls will be awarded the same day of the theatre tickets only at the rate of four a day. Read the Lewiston Evening Journal dally and watch for the numbers.
