Apdale’s Animals

A mixed troupe of dogs, monkeys, bears and ant-eater, with the feature tricks done for the most part by a small black bear.
The black bear has half a dozen good tricks such as banjo playing, bycicle riding, etc.
A good feat was a 40-foot drive by a monkey from the height of the prossenium arch into the trainer's arms. A fair degree of speed and a good routine of tricks kept the act moving through its allotted time entertainingly.
As the opening number this week the act scored. All the animals are unusually docile and well behaved, both while performing and while at rest.
