Hippodrome, Tonypandy.

Tivoli, Pentre.-


Tivoli, Pentre. The chief attraction this week is the cinematograph reproduction of _the Burns and Johnson fight. The screen is occu- pied for an hour with these pictures, but it is an hour which passes very quickly, The pictures are very clear and distinct, and, next to actuality, this is the best method of seeing one of the greatest fights of recent times, The great physical difference between the black and white contestants is very evident, as is also the fact that Johnson was much the better fighter. The Five Vernons have a big reputation as xylophone players, and they succeed in winning applause for their ex- cellent music. This turn is really musical, than which no higher praise need be fiven. The celebrated Faludy Troupe of [unearian acrobats consists of very clever exponents, their speciality being jumping and balancing. Another very good item is that contributed by the Paul Kramer Troupe, who are, individually and collec- tively, at home on the swinging trapeze. Some of the head balancing of Paull Kramer is exceedingly clever and original, as well as neat and artistic. Miss Mai-tha Kramer ha? a good claim to the title of I the world's greatest lady gymnast; she is. perhaps, the best lady gymnast yet seen in our locality. Her feat of sup- porting four men and one girl is by no means an easy task. Included in this troupe is Indiana, a very flexible and gymnastic young lady, who also deserves a share of the praise. The Three Calbas are very funny but clever acrobats; their item on the programme is not far from being the best appreciated. Albert St. Clair, who possesses two voices, gives satisfaction in a good programme.
