Palace Porth. The proprietors of the Palace are to be congratulated upon the extensiveness of the alterations carried on during the holiday term. The interior of the Palace now presents a freshness that is most inviting. The combine appearing this week is an exceedingly versatile and clever one. Topping the bill is the well-known Lancashire comedian, Morny Cash. An exceptionally good vocalist with very taking songs, and also very witty, he is accorded a Hearty welcome and showered with encomiums. The special engagement of Mastro and Oretto also proves an jim,mense success Babe Lloyd, come- dienne and dancer; T'ray and Rich, the original black and white faced comedy team, are fine exponents of stepping, and receive enthusiastic applause. Unusually clever are the Bros. Wright, athletes. Their feats of strength are quite herculean. Rose Sartelhi. refined Ameri- can comedienne, makes quite a hit, her singing being exceedingly good. Little Learto, in a musical melange, assisted by his clever dog, also scores a huge success. The above are assisted by other clever artistes. The Palascope films maintain their great reputation, and beautiful pic- tures are being displayed nightly. The whole combination is worthy of patronage.
Tivoli, Pentre. Very large crowds were present at the Tivoli on Monday evening, the re-opening being marked by a huge success. The hall now present.s an attractive appear- ance and bears favourable comparison with any in the kingdom. A good pro- gramme is provided, including a few ex- ceptional turns. The special turn by the Five Burnetii- is a remarkable one from commencement to end. They are comedy artistes performing a sketch, entitled On the Links," and produc# heaps of fun as well as perform some smart feats. The Rohertys provide a novel and very skilful performance as equilibrists and jugglers. The final item in their perform- ance is original, very daring, extremely clever and neat, as well as highly success- ful. The Four Athos are a troupe of ball manipulators, acrobats and tumblers who are well in the running for premier honours at the Tivoli this week. Their combined work with about a dozen balls is very pretty, and requires considerable dextei. y. A comedy sketch, entitled Our Mary Jane," is produced by Miss Florence Smithers, Owen Dacroy and Co. The popular actress, Miss Smithers, has plenty of scope for her ability, appearing as an eccentric" lady help." The sketch is funny and causes shrieks of laughter, George Collins maintains his reputation as a quaint comedian—appearing first as a lady with an exaggerated form of dress —quite beyond a mere man's compre- hension. and secondly as a silly man," singing That's all that she lets me do." He is well applauded for both songs. The Sisters Lucia and Clara. Edwards. Sylvene, and the Tivoliscope, with excellent pic- tures, including Mr. Latham's Historic Attempt to Cross the Channel and Monsieur Bleriot's Successful Flight of the Channel," complete the programme.
Cardiff Empire. The favourite comedian, George Robey, tops the bill of next week's company at Cardiff Empire. Robey is exceedingly fond of practical joking. How many halls do you do a night, Wobey, old chap ? said a masher acquaintance to him one day. "Four." We ally No! ,lC No, really," Robey rejoined. Look here, Wobey, old chap, can't you take me with you?" The comedian said he could, and he did. He hired a furniture van; fitted it up with a barrel of beer in one corner and a whelk stall in the other, his dresser serving the whelks and draw- ing the beer. And in this elegant equip- age they went from one hall to another. The Johnny didn't see the joke at all. He. thought it quite usual. In the end the lights were put out, the beer tap turned on., and the van flooded. It was

Hippodrome, Tonypandy. A splendid Bank-Holiday programme is in force at the Hippo this week. Topping the bill is the Davenporte Comedy Com- pany, in the farcical comedy laughter maker, The Duchess of Dishwater." The misadventures of the "Duchess" are very amusing and send the audience into hearty laughter. Miss Nancy Renshaw is a very clever comedienne and bone soloist; and Mr. Edgar Harper, the popular baritone, is well to the fore in his rendition of the patriotic song, The Englishman's Home." Messrs. Morrin and Cardiff are very smart dandy Broad- way boys. Their dress and patter are essentially original, and never fail to please. Miss Adelaide Waldorf, known as the Australian queen of song, sends her hearers into raptures over her ex- quisite renderings of popular songs. The picture portion of the programme is, as usual, quite up-to-date. The Naval Pageant in the Thames is splendidly depicted, whilst amongst others,, a very interesting and historic picture is Joan of Arc, or the Maid of Orleans.

Medical Student's Suecess. We are glad to hear that Mr. Tom Hammond, son of Mr. E. Hammond (late manager of the Cambrian Collieries), of Penrhiwfer, has passed the London Inter- mediate Medical Examination, compris- ing physiology, anatomy, and pharmac- ology, and obtained a scholarship, value R40, in anatomy, and also in physiology, but was unable to hold the latter, as no candidate can hold more than one scholarship. Mr. Hammond passed the London Matriculation when very young. He also took the Treasurer's prize in anatomy in 1908 at St. Bartholomew's Hospital, another scholarship in anatomy and biology, in histology, chemistry, and physic, and obtained the Foster prize in anatomy earlv this year. There were 150 entrants from Great Britain in the first named examination. Mr. Ham- mond is, not yet 21 years of a".e. and was educated at Porthcawl, Reading, and Cheltenham.
