Ford, Andrus and “Earthquake.”

An "unridable" mule makes up the act with the addition of the two men and an assistant all in blackface. "Earthquake" does a lot of lively bucking and kicking while the clowns cavort about in its general neighborhood in an effort to make comedy out of the performance. One of the clowns attempts to ride for the last few minutes of the act. He does not take his falls remarkably well.
The early part is not at all funny. Ford and Andrus have the mule, now they need to frame up an act to use it in.
