This paper liasalways been glad to commend thesehigher manifestations of the art ofthe screen, and when a picture like"Janice Meredith," for example,comes to town it is a pleasure tocommend it to our readers. On aformer showing here tlie pictureproved its high historical value aswell as ability to charm throughstory,' costume and natural setting,Its appearance here again tomorrowand Saturday affords opportunityfor enjoyment by those of our read ers who missed it on the former oc casion, while there will be many desirous of enjoying it a second time.UNPAIIfTED BREAKFAST SUITEScorriAis359aUrtiVlAJLon oath declares that he la pressman In theThe series of pictorial sketches ofancient Main street, which TheCourier-Gazette begins in this Is sue to lay before its readers, willenliven some moss-grown memories,while awakening in the youngergeneration suggestions of tlie primi tive conditions out of which Rock land's handsome and prosperous chiefbusiness thoroughfare of today hasgradually developed. The sketchesare produced out of -photographsmade from a painted panorama ofMain street, done in about the year1850, by George F. Fling, a wellknown character of those times, whowas versatile in a number of direc tions. painted portraits of prominentcitizens who could afford that formof luxury, and among other practi cal accomplishments officiated aschief violinist and "caller-off” atcommunity dances, a connection thatwon for him the designation ofFiddler Fling, and which title passedby natural inheritance to his son.It was the west side of Mainstreet which in those early days,Immediately preceding the boom ofshipbuilding, transacted the largepart of the city's commercial businessand was therefore the region whicltnaturally offered itself to the artist'saspiring brush. The painting isdone upon cotton cloth, eight feetwide and some fifty feet in lengthOn the death of its author it passedinto the hands of the late GeorgeFred Meservey, who presented it tothe Public Library. In the basementof that institution it can be viewedat any time by the interested visitor. Though as a piece of artistryit may lie open to criticism, thepainting is not without historicalvalue as illustrating our city’s beginnings. A considerable part ofwhat it portrays was wiped out inthe Great Fire of 1853, which laidflat the area lying upon both sidesof the street between Limerock andBpring streets, with the considerableloss, for those days, of 200,000.'For the descriptive matter accompanying the pictures we are indebted to the retentive memory of A1bert I. Mather, whose boyhood roam ings covered every foot of the com munity in which he was born andwhose mind lets go no impressionswhich in those adolescent years wereimprinted upon it.If the reader should take thepains to compare these sketchesgeographically with the improve ments that today stand upon thespots depicted, he will doubtlessown to a pretty bit of entertainment.It is largely with this in view thatthey are here reproduced. Therewill be eight of them, covering thestreet from the Southend to Summerstreet.SATURDAY SPECIAL SALEWEThis wonderful range is perfectlyplain, but very handsome.
