The setting is a cooperage.
With the bamboo chimes in the forum of hoops more melody is obtained.
At the opening the men are busily engaged in hammering music out of barrels. After still more music is secured from other novelty instruments a lightning change is made to a parlor setting, very complete in details and bright in appearance.
The act was loudly applauded.
The music is liked, more so than Miss Ada's dance, but the young woman had the handicap of a poor orchestra last Monday night. Scenically it excels Staley's own and original transformation. It will always be a unique feature on a program.
