15 Mins.; Full Stage (Special Scenery). This act has been almost entirely made over as to scenery and general routine. The stage upon the stage has handsome new plush curtains, and the background is brilliantly decorated with spangles. The act opens with puppets entering the boxes for the entertainment. Later there is a lively modern society dance, in which a tiny man and woman burlesque dances in a ludicrous style. Later follow “Mut and Jeff,” “Texas Nell,” a riding act, and after the “Baseball Rag,” a neat and entirely new feature in the manikin line. The act has abundant humor and is worked with precision. It is a capital offering for a house where children attend, and it also makes a strong appeal to the older ones.a
