The act consists of a number of feats on a flying trapeze. At the close, while the bar is swinging at a lively rate, Melville leaps to another trapeze, alighting on the center of his back. The trapeze immediately whirls around and gradually lowers itself until the performer reaches the ground.
It is a great novelty, the idea of the leap being entirely original.
