Painted People at the Liberty
One of the most pleasing comedies ever presented on the screen is on view at the Liberty Theater. It Is “Painted People,” featuring Colleen Moore, the little star who created a sensation throughout the country through her impersonation of the thrill seeking flapper in “Flaming Youth.”

There are any number of laughable episodes in the production, with one outstanding. This centers around the couple trying to break into society, not knowing how, consulting a book on etiquette published in the year 1882 which was lived up to the last letter, even to dress. Many complications occur when they enter the 1924 flapper house party.

A special comedy attraction is also being shown at the Liberty, while Pathe News and a two-reel comedy round out the program.

Dairymen Invest in 7 Milking Machines
Lassen county dairymen have purchased seven milking machines to assist in their dairying. Three different types of machines have been tried out with very good success.

Practically all of the dairymen owning milking machines are also in the cow testing association and these two factors are greatly increasing the efficiency of dairy work throughout the county.

Cheese Plant Installed by Rancher
A small cheese factory has been installed by C.C. Cramer of Susanville and is using all the milk from a large herd of dairy cows which Mr. Cramer is maintaining at the Horse Lake ranch. The demand for cheese has been such that the new factory is practically guaranteed a sale for all its products.
