“Save Your Coppers. Beginning with Monday next those purchasing tickets at the Opera House or The Palace Theatre will require to pay the following additional: On ten cent tickets, one cent extra; from ten to fifty cents, two cents extra; from fifty cents to $1.00 five cents extra; over one dollar ten cents extra.

These additional items in no way benefit the theatres, as extra expense is attached to the issuing of special tickets and other items contingent upon the war tax. If those frequenting the playhouses will purchase twenty-five cents worth of tickets at a time it will be of convenience both ways. In any event save your coppers and have the change ready.”
