Wild West

The performance is marred by the smoke from the fireworks just preceding it.

The Bad Man

A water tank railroad station in the “wild and woolly” is shown with the cow punchers assembled to give the expected agent a warm reception. The agent turns out to be a woman. All the hands turn their attention from hazing to love making for good comedy purpose. A tenderfoot, as evidenced by Eastern clothes, is the lucky suitor. He bests the “bad man” in a fight, but later both tenderfoot and woman are overcome by the desperado on robbery bent. The tenderfoot is tied to the railroad track, while the woman is bound hand and foot to the table within the telegraph office. She escapes in time to effect her lover’s release and the two embrace as the expresses rushes past.

Effie Dutton, Winnie Van and James Dutton

One of the most showy acts seen in a long time. They appear in a light vehicle drawn by two horses which afterwards are ridden bareback by James Dutton, with the women suspended in the air clinging to the riders. Dutton rides standing on the horses, giving a most spectacular scene.
