Foreign act. Takes old trick from circus of asking anyone in audience to ride a horse for a reward if successful. Here it is a donkey. One hundred dollars is offered to anyone who can ride it. “The confederates employed do not hurt the value of the act as a laugh producer”. A few trick ponies also feature in the act.
"The people in the house could be seen jumping up and down in their chairs and shreiking with laughter over the antics and falls of those attempting to ride."
"It is a scream"
